Suspect drives U-Haul onto guarded, private lot in Bridesburg and steals food truck, other appliances
PHILADELPHIA - Two Philadelphia business owners woke up shocked on Sunday morning when they realized their three-week-old food truck had vanished. Philadelphia police say at around 5:30 Sunday morning, someone drove a U-Haul truck onto a private lot in Bridesburg and left with the Lui's Kitchen Food Truck attached to its trailer. Kris and Trisha Dogiewicz, owners of the food truck, say they poured money, time, and energy into their mobile restaurant for months until it came to fruition just three weeks ago. "We're trying to make some good Philly food with a southern twist," said Kris Dogiewicz.Lui's Kitchen Food Truck, named after Kris and Trisha's one-year-old daughter, is a popular stop among locals as the couple says they sold out of all their food at an event the day before it was stolen. "It was very, very promising. We were on a high on Saturday night, and we were like, 'This is great." Then, Sunday morning it came crashing down on us," said Trisha Dogiewicz.MORE HEADLINES: Gloucester County man, 51, arrested for animal cruelty, police sayPennsylvania man caught selling baby kangaroo for $5,000 on Facebook, officials sayPolice: Wawa offering $5,000 reward after armed robberies in Philadelphia neighborhoodsA surveillance video obtained by FOX 29 shows the U-Haul truck drive onto the private lot of the Arsenal Campus on Tacony Street.

Manufacturing PMI increases in August, but below neutral threshold
COLOMBO (News 1st) – Manufacturing PMI recorded an index value of 49.6 in August 2022, up from July, yet slightly below the neutral threshold level. The rate of decline of manufacturing activities was softened with the improvements reported in Employment and Stock of Purchases compared to the previous month while Production and New Orders declined at a slower pace. Further, the Suppliers' Delivery Time was shortened with improved mobility.Overall Production and New Orders declined marginally in August 2022 compared to July 2022. However, considering the largest manufacturing sub-sectors, an increase in Production and New Orders was reported in the manufacturing textile and apparel sector, limiting the overall decline to a marginal level, while the manufacturing food & beverage sector maintained Production and New Orders at the same level as of July 2022. Many respondents revealed that improved fuel availability on a month-on-month basis positively affected manufacturing activities. Meanwhile, Employment increased in August 2022, particularly in the manufacturing textile and apparel sector which frequently suffered from a scarcity of employees. The increase reported in Stock of Purchases was mainly due to higher activity levels anticipated in the coming months. Some respondents mentioned that slightly improved foreign exchange availability in the market allows them to open letters of credit to import materials.Expectations for manufacturing activities for the next three months indicated an improvement in August 2022, for the first time since February 2022, reflecting an improved business sentiment on gradually restoring stability and anticipating a more conducive environment for manufacturing activities in the coming

United Airlines invests $15 million in flying taxis: 'Going to change the way we live'
United signs purchase agreement for up to 400 eVTOL aircraft (Photo: United) United Airlines thinks that in a few years, plenty of big-city customers will pay $100 or more for a one-way ride to the airport in a four-seat, electric-powered air taxi.The Chicago-based airline said Thursday that it invested $15 million in a startup manufacturer, and signed a "conditional" agreement to buy 200 of the tiny aircraft with options for 200 more.United said it expects to receive the first taxis — which will take off and land vertically, like helicopters — from Eve Air Mobility as soon as 2026.It's hard to judge United's commitment to the deal, since it wouldn't provide terms for the order. A spokesman said the conditions are standard when buying an aircraft that hasn't been certified by regulators, and they cover "a number of United’s business objectives."The stake in Eve amounts to less than 5% of United's second-quarter profit.READ MORE: United Airlines threatens to end service at major U.S. airportBut the deal fits United's pattern of announcing interest in startups that are trying to build and win regulatory approval for air taxis, like Archer, and supersonic planes, like Boom.Mike Leskinen, president of United's venture-funding arm, said the eVTOLs — electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft — will be ideally suited for traffic-clogged cities where United flies, including New York, Chicago and San Francisco.
