Financial Tribune T he rate of mobile Internet usage has grown 42% over four years, with the latest data putting the number at 33 million subscribers at the end of the previous fiscal that ended in March, an increase of 3.9 million. Until 2013, only 0.8% of people (about 600,000) used Internet mobile services, prior to the introduction of 3G and 4G mobile services by the two biggest networks, IRNA reported. Reports by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology in February, showed the figures for 3G and 4G Internet users stood at a total of 27.1 million lines (34%). The prevalence of Internet use is not restricted to mobile Internet as fixed-line broadband is becoming popular at an unprecedented pace.

Rolling Stone magazine said the Allman Brothers style created "a template for countless subsequent jam bands". The Allman Brothers Band's southern rock sound is also credited with inspiring later groups such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band. Gregg Allman, known for his gentle manner and long blond hair parted in the centre, went on to front the band on his own for decades after his brother's death. The group was popular particularly in the 1970s. Billboard said that since Nielsen Music began tracking point-of-sale music purchases in 1991, the Allman Brothers Band has sold 9.3 million albums in the United States. The group's best-known hits include Whipping Post, Midnight Rider, Melissa and Ramblin' Man. A 22-minute version of Whipping Post was a highlight of the group's popular 1971 live album At Fillmore East. Allman struggled for years with heroin addiction and substance abuse and went into rehab several times before getting clean in the 1990s.

Image 18 of 18 Image 18 of 18 Only the seven-speed M DCT dual clutch gearbox is offered with the CS due to the need to chase numbers, which are quoted at 3.9-seconds to 62mph (against a regular M4 at 4.2-seconds), a 174mph maximum and a 7min 38sec Nurburgring lap time. What’s it like to drive? The changes BMW has made to the 18-model year M4 Competition Pack are impressive enough. Gone is that layer of disconnect the original car possessed and struggled to provide the confidence required to dig deep into the M4’s reserves and enjoy its obvious talents. There was always a frustration that the M4 had much to give but BMW had made it frustrating to access it. The Competition Pack address these issues, the new CS improves on this further still. There’s a new found level of focus and precision to the CS. Within only a few miles of committed driving it becomes clear that van Meel and his team has poured over every detail of the M4’s DNA and improved upon it.

The increase in torque is particularly impressive considering the lack of any hardware updates. • Best performance cars on sale In terms of performance, the engine tune has resulted in a 3.9-second 0-62mph time (three tenths quicker than an M4) and a 174mph maximum speed. Only a seven-speed M DCT gearbox is offered. Image 2 of 22 Image 2 of 22 As with its engine the M4 CS’s chassis has been electronically optimised. BMW M could have taken what it had learnt during the GTS development program and selected the most suitable hardware upgrades. Instead the team took the M4 Competition Pack’s stiffer springs, dampers and anti-roll bars and set about the CS’s chassis by tuning what they already had. And the same goes for the steering, where the same three settings (Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus) have all been optimised for the CS, primarily to get the most from its 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear) Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.

More specific, this anomaly is directed straight over or close to the Cascadia Subduction Zone which is a 600-mile fault that runs from northern California up to British Columbia and is about 70-100 miles off the Pacific coast shoreline. Although The Cascadia Subduction Zone has not produced an earthquake since 1700 it is building up pressure where the Juan de Fuca Plate is subsiding underneath the North American plate. Currently, scientists are predicting that there is about a 40 percent chance that a megathrust earthquake of 9.0+ Magnitude in this fault zone will occur in the years ahead. Currently there is no proof but it looks like someone or something at Antarctica is manipulating or altering the weather in the Pacific Ocean region for whatever reason. Video below shows the latest wave anomaly caught on May 26, 2017. This article ( What’s going on? Within two months MIMIC caught third microwave anomaly coming from Antarctica! ) was originally published on UFO Sightings Hotspot and syndicated by The Event Chronicle .

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at strategic-culture.org The official U.S. government line is that Iran is the main country responsible for the 9/11 attacks in America. On 9 March 2016, a U.S. civil court ruled that Iran must pay to some victims of the 9/11 attacks $10.5 billion in fines , and the Obama Administration had no comment , so the U.S. press ignored the verdict almost totally. But this verdict was the only official U.S. court ruling thus-far about state-sponsorship of the 9/11 attacks, 16 years after the event. It was therefore huge news on 9 March 2016 — it created a precedent, for the U.S. government to allege that Iran had caused the 9/11 attacks and is consequently ‘the number one terrorist state’ (as Israelis have long claimed). But it received very little coverage at the time. The event’s significance was the precedent that this verdict set, but most of the ‘newsmedia simply didnt report this important precedent: it was the first official U.
