When the first act arrives, it's as elegant and precisely put together as your preconceptions would lead you to expect. Scottish scallop, diced and served with caviar and ponzu jelly, is wonderfully fresh with delicate sea flavours.Salmon, gently smoked and marinated in soy sauce, is more assertive, yet still tastes overwhelmingly of salmon rather than salt and smoke. Act two fills the stage with raw fish, minimally adulterated. Sea bream and yellowtail are light but firm, tuna softer and richer. The latter comes in three grades, the highest of which is marbled like fine steak. Act three is the preserve of the robata grill and flesh cooked slowly over hot coals. There, lurking innocently under the scallops, mackerel, duck breast and lamb chop, is Kobe beef at £145 for a 4oz fillet. If this is food as theatre, then, like theatre, it demands a hefty financial investment.

The secondary microSD slot is a lovely touch, too – it backs up your recordings in case the first microSD card fails. The big 2.7in touchscreen is a boon, making setup and video playback superbly straightforward, and it also pops up safety camera warnings and alerts when you go over the speed limit. Mio MiVue 658 Touch Super HD DashCam £149.99 Buy now 5. Nextbase Duo: A great-value dual-camera dash cam Price: £145 The Nextbase Duo packs in two cameras for the price of one high-end dash cam. Twin 720p cameras are positioned on either edge, both of which swivel back and forth to get the perfect view of the road. The rear camera has a zoom lens that focuses in on what’s happening behind your car rather than inside it, and both lenses have a 140-degree field of view that covers all the action front and rear. One quibble is that the lower-resolution sensors can struggle to pick up number plates at nighttime, but the motion-sensing feature is a nice touch – it automatically starts recording if it detects something moving nearby, even when your car is parked.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs added their quarterback of the future Tuesday, securing the commitment of 4-star Jalen Mayden. Mayden announced his intention to join the SEC program on his Twitter page: The Sachse High School star is the No. 11 quarterback and No. 100 player overall in the 2018 recruiting class, according to Scout . Over the past two years, the southpaw established himself as a dynamic dual-threat QB. He threw for 5,336 yards and 59 touchdowns while running for another 1,145 yards and 15 touchdowns, per 247Sports . While Mayden's numbers speak for themselves, he has been aggressively drawing attention to his abilities. During a 14-day period last June, Mayden attended a combination of 12 satellite camps and college campuses, according to ESPN.com's Max Olson . " We save all year to make sure that during this time we can do this and it doesnt hurt the household," said Mayden's mother, Katrina Mayden-Salles.

Speaking of power, that’s also no longer a secret, as the figure for the sDrive20i seems to be listed as 145 kW which translates into 197 PS or 195 HP. The torque figure is rather high as well at 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) and that’s just good news overall. However, what’s not listed but can also be seen in the photos, and is definitely the biggest news here is the manual gearshift knob, confirming once and for all that some Z4s will be available with a manual gearbox. Enthusiasts rejoice! One final detail that caught our eye is the expected start of production listed as November 18, 2017, which means we’ll get to see the Z4 this year before being launched to the public in 2018. As to whether the specs of the production car will be the same as the ones of this prototype remains to be seen, but we certainly hope so.

Eastern Conference Finals: Pittsburgh vs. Ottawa Game 6 Date: Tuesday, May 23 Time: 8 p.m. TV: NBCSN Odds: Pittsburgh -145 (bet $145 to win $100), Ottawa +131 ( via OddsShark ) Game 7 (if necessary) Date: Thursday, May 25 Time: 8 p.m. TV: NBCSN Bless the Penguins' hearts for potentially taking this series against Ottawa all the way to a Game 7. Not only that, but the Pens, who are leading the series at 3-2 heading into Tuesday's matchup, have a chance to put the Senators away for good in Game 6 despite a roster completely inundated with injuries, including but not limited to Patric Hornqvist, Justin Schultz, Kris Letang and Bryan Rust. That means the Penguins have been almost completely without a top defensive presence. Needless to say, their committee mentality has been keeping them afloat in these playoffs. As Adam Gretz of NBC Sports points out, "j ust about everybody is playing more than they are used to while there is virtually no difference between each role.

What the app needs is a reminder system that works with the phone - if you tell it that you need to buy milk, it should ping you when such an opportunity arises. Or perhaps know when youre most likely to have time to write and suggest you do so (maybe a period of inactivity in a certain location) - this kind of thing would really make the Senstone indispensable. Early verdict The Senstone is so far from a finished product that its almost unfair to comment on its use. The design, usability and function are all going to be upgraded hugely at launch, and as such it may suddenly warrant the $145 (roughly 120/AU$190) cost. We didnt find any need for the Senstone in our time with it though - without the promised AI, or the unit being 100% accurate at capturing speech, its hard to see how the Senstone is anything more than an expensive substitute for the phone, which can record the same things.

... Vietnam's coastal mangrove forests fared even worse: by a quirk of physiology, a single spraying could wipe out almost the entire plant community. Mangroves can live where other species cannot, at the brackish interface of land and sea, because their roots filter the salt out of seawater so that fresh water is drawn up into the plant's leaves. The defoliants interfered with this filtering mechanism and allowed lethal doses of salt to accumulate in the plants. Worse, the vegetation seemed utterly unable to regenerate, leaving bare mudflats even years after spraying. *** Pfeiffer later recalled a vast gray landscape, littered with the skeletons of herbicide-killed mangroves. *** A mid-1980s study by Vietnamese ecologists documented just 24 species of birds and 5 species of mammals present in sprayed forests and converted areas, compared to 145-170 bird species and 30-55 kinds of mammals in intact forest.

After the reveal of Windows 10 S, details began to emerge about upcoming Windows 10 S devices. Of course, there was Microsofts own flagship Surface Laptop device, but a number of manufacturers such as HP, Asus and Acer have announced they're also creating Windows 10 S devices , with prices starting at $189 (around 145, AU$250). So does Microsoft have a vision of what sort of Windows 10 S devices we may see in the future? Is there a set of requirements the company sends to manufacturers when building a Windows 10 S machine? No, the hardware requirements are exactly the same as Windows 10, explained Epstein. So we do expect to see a wide variety of Windows 10 S machines. Obviously at launch weve announced the Surface Laptop, thats a high-end configuration machine. But we are expecting a wave of machines, probably at the end of this summer, from most of the major PC manufacturers that will be on low-cost devices targeted at students and the education market, featuring Windows 10 S.

Coast-To-Coast In a Twitter session earlier, Elon Musk revealed new details concerning the coast-to-coast test of Tesla's autonomous cars and updates to existing Tesla software. He said that the coast-to-coast test is still on track to take place at the end of the year, and that all Tesla cars built since October 2016 would be updated. The plan, announced in a Ted Talk last month , is to go all the way from a parking lot in California to a parking lot in New York with no controls touched in the entire journey.” There are also updates concerning the autonomous driving system for Tesla vehicles. In response to some finding the driving experience uncomfortable after the speed limit was lifted last month, the company has updated the software for a smoother ride, and now the experience is as smooth as silk. The speed limit on the vehicles was limited to 145 km per hour (90 mph) on highways and no more than 8 km per hour (5 mph) over the speed limit when off highway.

People in Lincolnshire take more drugs to treat hay fever and other allergies than almost anywhere else in England. GPs in South Lincolnshire handed out 66,756 prescriptions for antihistamines in 2016, our analysis of data from the NHS shows. There are 145,980 people living in the area, which means that if all those prescriptions were shared out equally it would be one for every 2.2 people. That is the joint-second highest share in the entire country, behind only Bradford. READ MORE:...
