  • Workflow Designer complements the service’s existing tools for managing the contract lifecycle and collaborating on legal documents.

Here are some of the upgrades coming to the Air Force's oldest bomber

  • As part of the contract, Raytheon will work with prime contractor Boeing to replace the radar and radome, as well as putting in new displays, said Michael Riggs, Boeing's B-52 radar modernization program manager.
  • So far, 60 of the 76 aircraft have received modifications, said Alan Williams, deputy B-52 program element monitor at Air Force Global Strike Command.
  • The Air Force is also adding Link 16 to the B-52, which is one of the last of the service's aircraft to get that NATO-standard communications link, said Scot Oathout, Boeing's bombers program director.
  • The service is in the process of a "form, fit, function replacement" for its current ALQ-172 electronic countermeasures system, or ECM, which will help solve problems with obsolescence and increase reliability without providing a capability upgrade, said Williams.

Auto workers union says it will strike against GM at midnight

  • New York (CNN Business) - The United Auto Workers union said Sunday that its members at General Motors will walk out by midnight if the automaker does not meet its demands, setting the stage for the nation's first auto strike in 12 years.
  • The union's contract with GM had expired at 12:01 a.m. Sunday but the union's 46,000 members at GM did not walk off the job at 31 GM factories and 21 other facilities across the nation at that time.
  • Those issues suggest it will be difficult to reach an agreement in time to avoid a strike, said Kristin Dziczek, vice president of industry labor and economics for the Center for Automotive Research, a Michigan think tank.
  • The union had earlier extended the contracts at two other US automakers with UAW contracts, Ford and Fiat Chrysler, as it targeted GM in an effort to reach a deal that would set a pattern for the industry.

These 4 NFL Teams Are Either in Salary Cap Nirvana…or Hell

  • The good news for the Saints is the team is very well-positioned in terms of its current players and their contracts.
  • The team has a solid veteran at quarterback in Kirk Cousins, who still has three years remaining on his very lucrative contract.
  • Jacoby Brissett does not seem like the type of quarterback to build a franchise around, although he does appear to have enough talent to keep the Colts a possible contender in future years.
  • The Colts have plenty of money to continue grooming talent, selecting solid draft picks, and perhaps surrounding Jacoby Brissett with what he needs for the team to make a go of it.
  • It may be a bit premature in assuming that’s how things will work out, but regardless, if the Dolphins are able to draft a high-quality quarterback next year, there’s plenty of money to begin building a team around him both next year and in the future.
