Motorcycle Concept Speeds Into The Future

first_imgLooking for a little bit of Tron with your motorcycle racing? A group of French design students, in what is sure to go down as the coolest final project in history, has put together a concept bike that has clearly been stolen from the future via time-traveling DeLorean.  The Saline Bird concept bike has a carbon-fiber frame and uses a compressed-air engine to hit speed-record level quickness. As part of the bike’s sleek, smooth style, the body work is just a leather slip fitted over the internal parts. Switching it out just means taking one bit of leather off and putting another on. The bike is made for the group Les Triplettes de Bonneville, who already hold four world speed records. Judging by their website, the team hits these mind-bending speeds on the Bonneville salt flats, regularly attending the SpeedWeek competitions. So, if you want to catch a glimpse of the closest thing to a light-bike, Nevada is a lot easier to get to than The Grid.AdChoices广告[via DesignBuzz]last_img read more

Carrie Fisher Debbie Reynolds HBO Documentary Set to Air in January Now

first_img The Fool Who Follows Him: 9 Solo Spin-Offs Disney Should Make NextEpisode IX Gets a New Screenwriter and John Boyega Discusses Leia’s Sendoff Stay on target In light of recent tragic events, a documentary starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who died within a day of each other this week, will be premiering earlier than anticipated.Bright Lights: Starring Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, an HBO documentary that was initially slated for a March premiere date, has been pushed up to Jan. 7.The 95-minute film chronicles a moment in the lives of the mother and daughter, who were both Hollywood stars in their own rights. Fisher, who died at the age of 60 after complications from a heart attack, was obviously most famous for the Star Wars franchise. Reynolds, who died at the age of 84 after suffering a stroke just a day later, was known for classic musicals like Singin’ in the Rain.Fisher wanted to make the documentary as a tribute to her mother and her decades-long career“Carrie wanted to make Bright Lights for Debbie and Debbie wanted to make it for Carrie,” said Sheila Nevins, the president of HBO Documentary Films. “It’s a love story.”The documentary, which was filmed mostly in 2015, chronicles the relationship between the two actresses. In the clip below, you can see that the bond is beyond just blood: the two lived next door to each other in Beverly Hills and would often visit (or according to Fisher, she was doing the visiting).Reynolds, who was 83 at the time of filming, still had a Las Vegas act, which meant that Fisher was often expressing worry at her mother’s exhaustion. However, in typical Fisher fashion, it’s funny, punny, and heartwarming.At times, the documentary promises to be emotional too. Towards the end, Fisher, who suffered from bipolar disorder, has a manic episode in response to her mother’s physical health.Directors Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom paid tribute to the pair in a statement:“[They] were supremely kind human beings, and unusually perceptive. And when either one entered a room, the energy changed. Quite simply, we were iron filings to their magnets,” they said. “These women were more than mother and daughter; they were an expression of exquisite humanity in all its travail and triumph. They lived their days boldly. They sang every song worth singing (often together.) Carrie and Debbie loved each other profoundly. We are devastated they’re gone. And so very fortunate to have known them at all.”Fisher had previously worked with HBO on an adaptation of her one-woman show Wishful Drinking. The network will air an encore screening of it this Sunday at 9 p.m.last_img read more

Report Juventus reject AC Milans swap offer for Higuain

first_imgAC Milan’s proposed swap deal involving their captain Leonardo Bonucci for Gonzalo Higuain has been rejected by Juventus, reports Calcio MercatoThe Rossoneri are resigned to losing Bonucci this summer with the defender believed to have been unsettled by the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Milan’s financial future with club owner Li Yonghong having recently lost control of his shares to American Hedge fund Elliot Management due to his failure to pay off his loan debts.Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has recently admitted that he is currently unsure if Bonucci will remain at the San Siro this summer or not.“It will be up to Leo and the club to decide, but I hope that Bonucci can stay here. I think that when a player expresses a desire, the coach must do all he can to convince him to stay,” he said on Bonucci.But it appears that Milan have decided to act first and have now reportedly offered Juventus the chance to resign the 31-year-old in return for their out-of-favour striker Higuain.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.The Argentina international appears almost certain to leave Turin this summer following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival from Real Madrid, which has deemed Higuain surplus to requirements.However, Juventus have rejected the offer but have not closed the door on reuniting with Bonucci this summer.The Old Lady feel that Milan should offer cash in the swap deal with Bonucci believed to be valued at €35m.The Serie A champions are asking Milan to come back with €25m included in their next offer and, in return, they will get Higuain.last_img read more

Klopp is not interested in Evertons stats

first_imgThe Liverpool manager wants his team to return to their winning path today against the Blues in the English Premier LeagueLiverpool and Everton will face off tonight in the English Premier League.And for the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, he’s not interested in the Blues’ stats or their past encounters.“I’m not interested even for one second in records or stats from the previous meetings,” he told the club’s official website.“I’m not interested for one second about expectations or predictions. I’m not interested for one second who is favorite and who isn’t.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“It’s a derby: two clubs who share a city and are separated by meters. The intense desire to win is something we can guarantee every supporter inside Anfield will have,” he added.“So for us as ‘the team’ it’s about delivering: go and channel the positive energy of this encounter; take extra juice from it.”“These games make you run harder, jump higher and give beyond what sometimes you realize yourself is possible,” he explained.“I trust my players entirely that they understand what is needed from them today.

Deandrea remembers Michael Jackson moment

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 25 Jun 2015 – This day in history Michael Jackson died at the age of 50; that was in 2009.Regrettably, I never got to meet or interview this musical icon but I did get to see him playful and guarded by about 30 Royal Bahamas Police Officers as he tried to make it to the stage at the opening of the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. Squatting beneath that canopy of officers, on assignment at that star-studded opening, I too dropped to the ground in a squat just to peep the King of Pop… he hailed me with a wide grin, covered his mouth as he laughed and then hit the stage transforming from a child-like genius to a musical master. If you are in the mood for some Michael J today; go to my FB page for a YouTube playlist of little known hits belted out by Jackson. Better yet, we’ve also got links to YouTube video of the opening in 1998 of the Royal Towers at Atlantis where he sang a song all of us could use these days, ‘Heal the World.’ WATCH NOW: Related Items:michael jackson TWO SWORN IN AT FINANCE TO COVER HARVEY’S JOB Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppcenter_img Recommended for you OVER 300 SUPPORT CRIME STOPPERS MICHAEL JACKSON BALLlast_img read more

Murray feels Brighton should have won

first_imgBrighton and Hove Albion drew 1-1 against Leicester City on Saturday, even after having one more man in the field for more than half the matchBrighton and Hove Albion didn’t take advantage of having one more man during the 1-1 draw against Leicester City.The Foxes saw how James Maddison was sent off at the 28th minute and played to a draw even with the disadvantage.“It was tough in the second half – we were much better against 11 men than we were with 10,” Seagulls’ Glenn Murray said to the club’s official website.Webster knows there’s a lot of competition before he debuts Manuel R. Medina – August 24, 2019 Brighton and Hove Albion defender, Adam Webster, hasn’t debuted in the English Premier League because he knows the competition is fierce.“They ran us down, they pressed and they were brave. We got sucked into their tempo and let them back in.”“We feel like we should have won, but it’s our own doing. We let Leicester back into the game even though they played with 10 men for a long time and, if we assess the game, I think it was a fair result.”“We got into good positions in the second half, we just made wrong decisions in those positions, which let us down,” he added.“It would have been nice to get the eighth [goal of the season] as well. But it’s not about that – it’s about the points we get, and we need to do a little bit better.”last_img read more

Weather Eye Its cold and dry in the lowlands and should continue

first_imgWe’ve had quite chilly weather, I would say, at least here in the lowest elevations. Early Monday morning was in the mid-20s in most of Vancouver, while at 1800 feet elevation in Portland’s West Hills, it was 41 degrees. Classic inversion. Amazingly, the afternoon freezing level was at 11,000 feet, which shows how high the warmer air aloft extended.I recorded a low of 23 degrees under clear skies early Monday morning, then the fog rolled in, making for some dicey black ice on the roadways. There was enough moisture falling from the freezing fog that a dust of white could be seen blowing around on some roads, almost like a light snowfall.Not much change to the weather pattern the rest of the week — maybe over the weekend we may see changes and things could go back to a wet pattern by the middle of the month. After all, it can’t stay dry forever, especially in December.At least we managed to get out of the 30s Monday with the weak sunshine, topping off at 44 degrees. Most cities from Kelso northward up I-5 remained in the 30s for highs.The heavy mountain snow fall in late November helped boost the snow water equivalent above normal in the Washington Cascades. Dec. 1 measurements were: 142 percent of normal in the north Cascades, 179 percent of normal in the central Cascades and 105 percent of normal in the southern Cascades. Of course, our dry spell is cutting into that early snow pack and I could see some barren spots appearing on the southern flank of Mount St. Helens on Monday afternoon.last_img read more

Despite Broad Support John Cornyns Bipartisan Gun Bill Could Be In Danger

first_img Share Mengwen Cao/KUTSen. John Cornyn.The U.S. House has passed a bill allowing gun owners with licenses to carry firearms to carry those firearms weapons across state lines. It’s a bill the National Rifle Association has dubbed a “legislative priority.”Following the deadly mass shootings in Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas, legislators in Washington are also looking for a consensus on improving the national background check system for gun purchases, as well as banning a device known as “bump stocks.”Katie Zezima, a national correspondent for the Washington Post, says the new “concealed reciprocity” bill would essentially treat a concealed carry permit like a driver’s license.“You could take it across state lines no problem,” she says. “Right now, you can’t. You have to just use your concealed carry permit in the state that you got it.”In part, the legislation is controversial because gun permit laws vary so much from state to state.“Some states have very strict criteria, like New York and Maryland,” she says. “They require safety training, that sort of thing. Other states have much less strict permitting regulations. In Texas, you have to be over 21, you have to have been a citizen of the state for six months. There are a few other things, you can’t have felonies.”In a separate bill, Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn co-authored a plan to strengthen the background check system. That legislation comes in the wake of the Sutherland Springs massacre, in which the shooter’s offenses were not reported to this database by the Air Force, which allowed him to obtain a weapon.Zezima says that Cornyn’s background check bill had support from both sides of the aisle, but now that could change because the House GOP has paired it with the concealed reciprocity bill.“[The concealed reciprocity bill] was very controversial when it was introduced and it’s become even more controversial now because the House has linked it to one of the few, if only, bipartisan gun bills to be before Congress in a very long time,” she says.Zezima says the background check legislation was expected to pass easily through Congress, but now that the House has linked it with the controversial concealed reciprocity bill, the fate of both bills rests in the Senate.Written by Jen Rice.last_img read more

Heat wave looms over Bengal even as storm provides temporary relief

first_imgKolkata: The mercury may soar up to 40 degree Celsius in some of the Western districts of the state, while a high level of discomfort may prevail in the city later this week. However, a sudden spell of rain and thunderstorm took the city by surprise on Tuesday evening, which brought down the temperature by a few notches.The Regional Meteorological Centre in Alipore predicted that the people in the city and the adjoining districts may feel a sultry and uncomfortable weather, in the latter half of this week. People in Kolkata and its adjoining areas got a relief from discomfort caused due to the hot and humid condition, following the thundershower. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe weather office predicted that the Western districts like Bankura, Birbhum, Burdwan and West Midnapore may touch nearly 40 degree Celsius, later this week. The temperature will soar above normal in Kolkata and other adjoining districts as well. People going out on the streets in the sun have been facing severe discomfort due to excessive heat. The situation will, however, not improve till the advent of Norwester, a weather official said.The thunderstorm on Tuesday struck the city and various parts of North 24-Parganas, South 24-Parganas, Hooghly, Howrah and other districts at around 7.30 pm, with wind blowing at a speed of 50-60 km per hour. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedThe shower, which might have been triggered by a high-pressure belt over the Bay of Bengal, lasted nearly an hour. While it was more intense in the northern fringes of the city, the central and southern parts received moderate rain.The high-pressure belt provided moisture, which was sucked in by the heated land. Since the temperature has been high in Gangetic Bengal for the past few days, it had paved the way for the thunderstorm, a senior official of the Regional Meteorological Centre said. Shear winds during the hour-long storm, led to the disruption of traffic movement in some parts of the city, due to felling of trees. The traffic movement in various parts was slow due to rain and storm. Trees fell near Fairlie Place and Bosta Potti area of Sovabazar. A truck was completely wrecked after a tree fell on it at Sovabazar. A tree also fell near Park Circus. A lamp post fell near Bijan Setu. A shop was damaged when a tree fell on it near Peerless Hotel. Senior police officers were on roads to manage the traffic.It may be mentioned that window panes of Nabanna were also damaged in the storm. Several floors were affected, including the Disaster Management department.Train services on the Sealdah-Dankuni section were restored at 10.50 pm, while services on the Howrah-Bardhaman chord line section is likely to resume soon.last_img read more

Ghacks Cloudflare new theme HTTPS more

first_imgGhacks: Cloudflare, new theme, HTTPS, more by Martin Brinkmann on April 02, 2017 in ghacks – Last Update: April 02, 2017 – 40 commentsI would like to provide you with information on changes that have been implemented already on Ghacks, or are upcoming in April 2017.I first thought about publishing this article on April 1, 2017, but the April Fool’s epidemic made me re-consider that quickly.Note that the schedule may change depending on how things progress in April. If things go well, Ghacks will use HTTPS exclusively and the new theme on top of that.CloudflareWe have enabled Cloudflare yesterday on the site. Cloudflare acts as a proxy more or less with the aim to block bad traffic to the site without affecting the good (your) traffic.If you are a regular here on Ghacks you may have noticed already that the server has been acting up a bit in the past weeks. Site went down a couple of times, and sometimes it was slow like a snail instead. This was caused mostly by bad traffic that was hammering the site with requests.My hope is that by using Cloudflare we are putting an end to this. Result should be a faster, more responsive site. Cloudflare does offer additional features. We will save quite a bit of bandwidth by using the service, and site responsiveness should have improved as well for you (time to first byte, first render).It is likely that some of you may experience false positives. Cloudflare may ask you to verify that you are human before you may access the site. I hope that this is not the case at all, or very, very limited. If you run into problems regularly, let me know please.HTTPSHTTPS is enabled on Ghacks, but it is not the default. We ran tests for the last couple of weeks offering both options to visitors.If you load the default site, you will get mixed content warnings currently because of the newsletter signup form. Without it, all content should load fine and there should not be any mixed content warnings anymore.I see the benefits of HTTPS, especially when things like HTTP2 are used as well, as it will speed up the site. Expect HTTPS to be enabled exclusively on the site soon.New Themefirst version of theme, improved version is in the worksWork continues on the new theme. We asked you to test it some time ago and report your findings, and are currently in the process of optimizing the theme and changing some of the things that you did not like.The number one issue was that the thumbnails looked cut off. While that was by design, it caused so much confusion that we will make a change there to avoid that from happening.Tip: you can test the theme by adding ?theme=ghacks to the URL, e.g. https://www.ghacks.net/?theme=ghacks. Note that the theme works only on the single page then. Any link you follow opens the site using the regular theme.Closing WordsI hope that the changes won’t have a negative effect on your experience, or the site’s standing (SEO, reputation). It is hard to predict; while you can use all best practices and such, there is always the chance that things go wrong.Best case scenario would be that you don’t notice any issues, and that the site itself benefits from it as well (faster, better search engine visibility).SummaryArticle NameGhacks: Cloudflare, new theme, HTTPS, moreDescriptionI take a look at what is upcoming to Ghacks Technology News in April 2017: most notably, Cloudflare support, HTTPS and a new theme.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

To that end, the company as made the system easily accessible via two thumb screws. And if you want to see what’s inside your system all the time, you can shell out a little extra to get a clear side door.You also get the choice between a 360W or 460W power supply, and either a 65W or 95W CPU cooler. In terms of storage, you get one M.2 slot and two 2.5-inch slots that you can expand upon later.(Image credit: Future)So why go with the Dell G5 Desktop instead of building a PC with your own custom tower? Well, the G5’s tower is sleek and compact, at 16.7 pounds and 14.45 x 6.65 x 12.12 inches. But it also features an intricate design on the front end with perforations designed to increase airflow. The only downside is that the G5 is limited to blue LED lighting on its front panel. And the Abyss Dull Grey paint job feels too standard.Dell’s motherboard features a ton of ports, including five USB 3.1 ports, one USB Type-C port, four USB 2.0 ports, an RJ45 Ethernet port, a headphone jack, a microphone jack, a center/subwoofer LFE surround port, a side L/R surround port, a front L/R surround port and DVI/DP/HDMI ports based on the graphics card.(Image credit: Future)Like the rest of the G-Series, the Dell G5 Desktop is also going to be shipped out with Alienware Command Center, which means you can customize lighting, audio and performance profiles for specific games all in one place.We’re pretty excited to get our hands on the Dell G5 Desktop and see how it holds up against our tests.
