Tom Wiltshire 25 May 2017 This year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este will be the venue for one of the most eagerly awaited BMW reveals of recent times. The brand will be showing off a new concept for the 8 series, previewing a successor to the 80s coupe. BMW calls this car a ‘design study’ but mentions it gives a ‘taster’ of the forthcoming production model, which will launch in 2018 in the midst of BMW’s latest onslaught of new products. The firm also describes it as a ‘full-blooded driving machine’ and claims that it will be both dynamically accomplished and luxurious. More on the BMW Gran Lusso concept From the side, the proportions and silhouette are classic Grand Tourer, with the car featuring a long, low bonnet and short passenger cabin. The car is marked out by bold character lines along its chiselled flanks, while around at the rear BMW i8-style taillights sit in a rear panel marked out with irregularly shaped tailpipes and an aggressive rear splitter.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday vowed to take up a $15 minimum wage in the first 100 hours of the next Congress if Democrats take back the chamber next year. Pelosi offered the commitment while appearing alongside fellow Democratic leaders and advocates to release new legislation raising the minimum wage to $15. Her comments offer an early view at Democrats' potential agenda for the House if they can claw back to control in 2018, a long-shot prospect that some in the party view as increasingly realistic given President Donald Trump and the GOP's recent struggles. If we win the election, Pelosi told the gathered audience, in the first 100 hours we will pass a $15 minimum wage. The California Democrat conspicuously harkened back to 2007, when her caucus raised the minimum wage to its current level of $7.25 as part of an ambitious campaign for its first 100 hours in power.

BMW is using this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este to unveil the BMW Concept 8 Series , the rebirth of an icon and the successor of the current 6 Series family. The study car will serve as a taster of a forthcoming BMW model – the new BMW 8 Series Coupe, slated for launch in 2018 and part of the biggest model offensive in the company’s history. “The forthcoming BMW 8 Series Coupe will demonstrate that razor-sharp dynamics and modern luxury can go hand-in-hand, says BMW CEO Harald Krueger. This will be the next model in the expansion of our luxury-car offering and will raise the benchmark for coupes in the segment. In the process, we will strengthen our claim to leadership in the luxury class.” At the front, the new Concept 8 Series stands out with its nose plunge down toward the road more aggressively than any other BMW. That nose also features massive kidney grilles that, thankfully, don't blend into the incredibly squinty and angry headlights.

Investors were underwhelmed, he suggests, by the PFS, which outlined an eight year Chinchillas project with a post-tax NPV (net present value) of US$178mln, of which, a 25% share would be US$ 44.5mln, or equal to about 60 Canadian cents a share. He also points to possible uncertainty as to how management will fund Chinchillasestimated US$ 20.25mln capital requirement over the next 18 months. But Epstein answers this by saying that once the joint venture deal closes, Golden Arrow will have around C$27mln, or US$20mln of cash. "On top of that, there’s an additional C$ 7mln from in-the-money options and warrants, plus an estimated C$ 11mln stretching out into mid-2018 from its share of cash flow from processing stockpiles at the Pirquitas mine," he suggests. In terms of the pre-feasibility study, Epstein says there is a "substantial" amount of upside to the net present value, including from a potentially extended mine life and higher production.

The tool section of the emoji keyboard boasts an array of knives, a syringe, a water gun, a beeper, a battery, and a bomb. But when it comes to objects you might find in a laboratory, the options are slim to none. Scientists are hoping to change that by proposing a slate of science-specific emoji. If approved, items such as lab goggles, a petri dish, a test tube, and a DNA double helix could join the ranks of things you text your friends. SEE ALSO: Your hairstyle may be getting its very own emoji soon Industrial giant GE and the American Chemical Society last month proposed 10 emoji to the Unicode Consortium, the organization that oversees the official list of these icons. Nine emoji were deemed candidates for the next selection process, meaning all or some of these could hit keyboards in summer 2018. Read more...

According to Milunovich, the top of the line, 256GB iPhone 8 will indeed top out at $1070, making it the most expensive iPhone ever released. The lower-storage models, however, will retail for less with prices likely starting at $870. "Earlier this month,” notes 9to5Mac, “Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski predicted that the iPhone 8 will cost $999 for 128GB and $1,099 for 256GB. The discrepancy in pricing between Milunovich and Jankowski could be related to differing storage amounts, with the former perhaps anticipating a 64GB model while the latter predicts a 128GB base.” Next year’s iPhone launches – the iPhone 6 series – will be ALL ABOUT OLED, as reports are now suggesting that Apple is doubling down on OLED display tech, meaning it will come to ALL iPhones (not just the top of line one’s) from 2018 onwards. The report said the iPhone 9 is expected to come in two OLED models -- 5.
