Vaughn Highfield 6 min 24 sec ago Games Sometimes there’s no greater pleasure in life than utterly destroying things with your own hands. Perhaps that says a lot more about me than I’d care to believeStill, the very act of toppling dominoes, crushing sand castles underfoot, or punching through a Barbie Dream house is just a pleasure I can’t get enough of. It’s not every day I actually get to don the Blood Raven Space Marine’s weapon of choice but, in an effort to promote Dawn of War III , Sega invited me down for a chance to really feel the power an inter-stellar army has at its disposal. Weighing over 10kg, with 6 kilograms of that resting in the CNC-milled aerospace-grade aluminium knuckles, this punching machine is an absolute beast. Using two air canisters, the Power Fist can deliver 3,000 PSI of impact alongside my already impressive right hook*.

She may play a tech up-and-comer who gets sucked into the cult of a powerful Internet company in The Circle , but Emma Watson seems determined to not let her life imitate her art. During a recent chat with Jessica Chastain for Interview Magazine , the Beauty and the Beast star spoke about the pitfalls of maintaining an online presence in a social media-fixated world. It's a minefield! Technology is moving so fast right now, she said. Everyone is scrambling around trying to understand what it means to have an avatar, how to live our lives on the internet, what it means for privacy, for citizens of a political universe. I think that we're trying to find rules now, as we speak, and it's difficult. But, like everything, the internet is an incredibly powerful force that needs governingnot to restrict our freedom, but to protect people.

Check out the highlight video below: [This post contains video, click to play] But that’s just scratching the surface. In the 10 months that Robby has owned his M4, he’s been very busy turning it into the Santorini Blue Beast that it is today. Still, I wanted to know the story behind what made him choose the M life, so I asked him. His response: “I’ve had many cars in the past, but I always wondered about owning my own M car. I would always get excited every time I’d hear about M cars, and when I saw my first M4 I knew then that there was no way I’d choose anything else over it. I fell in love the moment I saw it.” So, it’s obvious that it was love at first sight for Robby, but it’s also obvious that his M4 has had some “work” done to it. For starters, the car was originally Alpine White from the factory. Robby decided he wanted to make it Santorini Blue instead, so he reached out to Vital Energy Motorsports and got it wrapped.

These days, workplace culture is becoming a defining characteristic for most companies—as well as a marketing tool to retain and attract top talent. As a result, I’m often asked by industry peers and hopeful job seekers what it’s really like to work at TopRank Marketing. The honest truth? It’s hard work. But, that’s the nature of the marketing agency beast. But at TopRank Marketing it’s also in our nature to nurture —and that’s evident in the culture we’ve built; a culture of support, understanding and teamwork to help ensure every individual and every client thrives. Of course, things arent always perfect. But as author, researcher and speaker Brené Brown once said: “Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we’re all in this together.” With that said, below I dive into how I came to be part of the TopRank Marketing team, as well as give you a little glimpse into my daily life as a Content Marketing Manager.

Assange explained that this could help them understand vulnerabilities and produce security fixes, to create a possible antidote to the CIA’s breach of security and offer countermeasures. WikiLeaks tweeted notifying the public that they now have contacted Apple, Microsoft, Google, Mozilla and MicroTik to help protect users against CIA malware. The Internet unleashed the beast that grows its force in the dark. Unaccounted power is dragging global society down into an Orwellian dystopia. Yet, from this same Internet, a new force is arising. Courage of the common people is breaking through the firewall of secrecy, creating a fortress that becomes ever more resilient, as the network of people around the world fighting for freedom expands. When democracy dies in darkness, it can be reborn in the light of transparency. The deep state stretches across borders, sucking people into an abyss of totalitarian control.

After an election like no other, many celebrities around the world with a strong social media presence have been either outspoken or eerily silent about their thoughts when it comes to politics. Christian Bale might not do it for the 'gram, but he did open up a bit with The Daily Beast while promoting his upcoming film The Promise and the conversation revealed a bit about the Oscar winning actor's political thoughts in today's climate. SEE ALSO: Trolls are lashing out at Christian Bale's new movie before it even premieres The controversial film finds the English actor playing a journalist in the Ottoman empire (now Turkey) during the country's 1915 mass killings of millions of Armenians. In the interview, he discusses the "post-truth era" he says we're currently living in, in regards to people constantly questioning facts and the importance of a free press. Read more...

But the Resistance would be better off leaving the fantasy of peace-loving moderate Syrian rebels to the hipsters at VICE and the neocons and neoliberal war hawks comfortably ensconced at Brookings, the Center for American Progress, CNN, The Daily Beast, The Atlantic magazine, and The Atlantic Council. US backed Al-Zenki Syrian rebels display a captured 10 year-old boy shortly before they decapitated him. (Screenshot from Al-Zenki released video) Another trend among the self-fashionedResisters” these days is towards an unthinking acceptance of U.S. government talking points, particularly with regard to Russian hacking and the Trump administration’s declassified four-page report on the Syrian chemical weapons attack. Yet given the less than inspiring record of American interventions based on faulty, distorted or simply fabricated intelligence, as in the cases of Iraq (2003) and Libya (2011), the question isnt why someone like Gabbard is out there questioning the Trump administration’s story, the question is: why arent more doing so? And wouldnt questioning Trump’s unilateral, illegal decision to bomb Syria seem to be the right and proper role of something which bills itself as “The Resistance”? But no.

Sean Hannity, a pomaded wig perched atop a melting styrofoam head perched atop a pile of butter-soaked thrift store polo shirts, stands accused of making a "creepy" advance toward a guest on his show. During a Friday interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, former Fox News guest Debbie Schlussel accused Hannity of inviting her to his hotel room before and after a debate with a pro-Palestinian guest in Detroit. Schlussel said she rejected Hannity’s alleged advances and that she was never invited on his show again. Schlussel and Hannity were scheduled to speak together at the Detroit show, Schlussel said. But before the show, Hannity allegedly invited her to an event at a nearby bookstore. The Daily Beast was not able to confirm whether the pair ever spoke at such a show. “He had some event at a bookstore where he signed his book for people standing in line.

It's the sort of sports car that sends its driver into motoring nirvana, it's the sort of automotive experience enthusiasts dream of. The BMW i8 is a different beast. In a way, the i8 is more intellectual. There's more going on. It starts in pure electric mode, capable of driving around 15 miles under pure electricity. It also looks like nothing else on the road, with a futuristic design that can't not be gawked at. It's stunning. It's also heavily made from carbon fiber and is seemingly from the future. So there's a very different attraction to it and, as an funky alternative to the Porsche 911, the BMW i8 is a great hybrid sports car in its own right. However, when it comes to which is a better sports car, the Porsche 911 is still king.

Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are WWE's two biggest stars, even with Braun Strowman breathing down their necks as the promotion's next premier giant. And as Lesnar and Reigns seem to be on a collision course for a big-time main event to follow up their instant classic from WrestleMania 31, there are elements to love, and there is also room for improvement with WWE's dueling powerhouses. Brock Lesnar What's Right? Brock Lesnar as a Part-Time Universal Champion After spending much of WWE's winter season getting speared and jackhammered by Goldberg, Brock Lesnar has been rebuilt into the beast of old following a scintillating victory over his nemesis at WrestleMania 33. The match had all the drama and excitement that evaded their WrestleMania XX predecessor, which instead was replaced by New York rage. With Lesnar as world champion for the second time since returning in 2012, WWE has positioned itself to give the rub to the rising stars of its new era.
