The ability to raise and lower the car was great for adjusting clearance over the road, but it also allowed for another unique feature: the ability to change your tires without a jack. Definitely worth a quick search on YouTube. The DS was offered in an array of models and trim levels, from the lower-end ID variants, to the Pallas editions that featured extensive luxury options, even all the way up to coach-built rarities like the Henri Chapron Concorde, pictured here in contrasting silver and burgundy, which entailed a new body and redesigned interior for those looking for the highest echelons of exclusivity without straying from what made the DS such a pleasant car to drive. While the DS undoubtedly had the comfort and style requisite of any respectable grand tourer, the first true GT car from the Gallic brand came to fruition in 1970 with the release of the SM.

(Photo: Benjamin Burgess/Street Sense) (REPORT) Muslim-American immigrant Kazi Mannan uses his platform as a restaurant owner in downtown Washington, D.C. to spread a message of love. At the Sakina Halal Grill , the homeless eat for free. In an interview with Eater D.C. , Mannan explains, “I’m in the business of hospitality, and I get to show love with good food. For me, it’s how I live out my faith”. Mannan came to the United Stated in 1996 at age 25, leaving behind his family to forge a new path, one that would reflect his dream of showing people “the true essence of Islam — and that is to love”. He began by working at a gas station in the Northeast’s throughway Benning Road until he was able to save enough money to begin a limousine service, which he still owns. Part of his motivation as a business owner is to employ other immigrants like himself, “I’m very proud that I can provide jobs to people like me, immigrants.

It's powered by three microphones in each bud, which pick up nearby sound and process it at lightning-fast speed before passing it along into your ears. It has the potential to give people mastery of their personal soundscapes, letting us turn down the volume of honking car horns, airplane engines or, yes, the can't-hear-yourself-think cacophony of a crowded bar. Doppler also wants users to be able to control how much outside noise they hear along with their music a roadside jogger, for instance, might want to hear some traffic noise for safety's sake. There's a health angle to be considered as well: Prolonged exposure to high-decibel sounds can result in hearing problems down the road. (That said, the Here Ones aren't designed to help with hearing loss the way hearing aids do.) Doppler, which previously made fancy earplugs for concert-goers, is getting much closer to its true vision with the Here One.
