What do you do when you're bored? When a trio of Australian friends, Hoss Siegel, Josh Spiegel and Ross Koger, found that they "had a severe lack of creativity in our lives" they decided to do something about it. Their solution: Get a bunch of friends together, build cardboard suits of armor and get into a Braveheart- style battle. That was way back in 2002 and Boxwars , as it's come to be known, has exploded in popularity, featuring regular battles with ever-crazier constructions entering the fray. Here's what this lunacy looks like in action: There are only four rules in Boxwars: 1. "There are No Winners, Only Losers." "Boxwars is both art and destruction using the near perfect medium of cardboard. The point is to build something from cardboard, then destroy it, which destroys the point. The battlefield is a place of contradictions + borrowed originality which sets a perfect stage for war.

He did not want them "polluting" the pristine state of racial and religious harmony that's a way of life in the state. As a result, a number of politicians did not get past the immigration counters while Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali was asked to leave after making a campaign speech. But to Azmin's credit, he bore no grudges for the rough treatment. He flew in to Kuching on the Wednesday news of Adenan's death broke out and went to Adenan's house to pay his last respects. On hindsight, it is obvious that Adenan was in a hurry to get things done despite his failing health as he knew that he was living on borrowed time with his heart condition and the five years that he craved for, sadly lasted only six months. This triggered such an outpouring of grief especially from netizens and tears flowed on the cheeks of many people I saw during the entire night I was at his house on the day of his passing.

It is fun to see people, but I don't know, it is very surreal and bizarre. It feels like prom, except all the clothes are borrowed so you have to give them back. It is like a Cinderella prom. I haven't seen it yet. It is such a fabulous film. You said, I haven't seen it yet. It is such a fabulous film. You said that it is redcarpet season and the People's choice awards.

£90 million. Never mind it budget or the lack of scrutiny, there is a bigger problem. Under the law it may not be legal. They cannot borrow more than they collect in tax. They've already borrowed millions for social housing, so 400-million more to pay for the hospital could push it too high.

This new Kia model is expected to bridge the gap between Kia’s hatchback and SUV offerings, and despite its small size it should be a more fully-fledged SUV, rather than a niche-splitting offering like the Soul. Engines are likely to be borrowed from lower-end Sportages, such as the 1.6 GDI, and the Rio, such as the 1.4-litre petrol and diesel. When it's launched, the as-yet-unnamed Kia small SUV will rival the Renault Captur and Nissan Juke , as well as the upcoming Golf-based SUV from VW and the Seat Arona .

Mitsubishi PX33, photo by Lennart Coopmans . Most car companies don't spend their first 44 years not building cars then take another multi-decade break from the business. Then again, most car companies don't have the backing of one of the world's largest conglomerates as does Mitsubishi, which this year will celebrate its centennial. Founded as a shipping company in 1870 in Osaka with three old borrowed steamships, Mitsubishi quickly expanded into coal mining, shipbuilding, and other industries related to its core shipping business. By the turn of the century, that diversification effort had expanded to banking, real estate, marketing, insurance, paper production, and brewing beer. The first effort at auto production, however, didn't come until 1917, not long after company founder Yataro Iwasaki's Cambridge-educated nephew, Koyata, ascended to the company's presidency and noted that Japan's Military Vehicle Support Act offered incentives to companies willing to develop large trucks .

Introduction by Pay Chang In the first paragraph of the article below, it says “we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” This sentence was borrowed from Unam Sanctam , a document written by Pope Boniface VIII. The words you need to pay attention to are “every human creature ” and “ subject to the Roman Pontiff “. In legal terms, a “human creature” is not the same as a living man. It is my innerstanding that when Pope Boniface VIII wrote Unam Sanctam and used the wordshuman creature”, he was talking about the afterbirth material, which is considered a still-born child. Something to think about when reading the article below. In my article titled How Words Can Be Used as Magic Spells , I said that “baptism is a dark magic spell” and that the “process of baptism actually promises the body, mind, and soul of a new born child to the coven of a church, which is controlled by witches from behind the scene!” The following article explores this soul-stealing magic ritual (baptism) further.

Facebook, as many of us already know, has a few dirty secrets. While it offers undeniable benefits, such as being able to easily communicate and stay up to date with your friends and family, and providing a platform to share your views, it does come with a price. Facebook has been widely known to spy on its users, for example, and participate in many other privacy invasions. But how much do these things actually affect us? Are these practices enough to stop us from using it? The following 5 secrets may just help you decide. 1. Double Dealing As many of us have already learned watching the popular 2010 film about the creation of Facebook, The Social Network, Zuckerberg stole a program designed by the Winklevoss brothers, originally called harvardconnnection.com. He was supposed to be helping them develop their social network, but instead borrowed many of their ideas for his own project, thefacebook.

But they are less positive toward the way tourism development has happened. Iceland is well on its way to paying back a loan of $ 4.5 billion borrowed from the International Monetary Fund and neighboring countries following the recession. Unemployment is back down to pre-recession levels of just over 3 percent and the GDP has increased every year since 2013. The opportunity for tourism is clear, but so are the growing concerns. At the Arctic Circle assembly in Reykjavik in October, Halldór Benjamín orbergsson, a senior vice president with Icelandair Group, spoke to delegates about tourism in Iceland and the importance of cooperation between government, industry and communities. One takeaway, he says, is that governments should not hesitate to protect certain areas with restricted visitorship and impose fees on tourism Iceland has no entry fee and the hotel tax is less than a dollar .

Probably early March. The politicians are still trying to push through new regulations to cut the cost of that controversial heating scheme. Probably they are living on borrowed time at this stage and they will be dissolved in a couple of days and go into election mode. Whether they come out of that election mode and able to form a new government is very much an open question.

Director Matt Reeves has set himself a high bar with War For The Planet Of The Apes , which follows ape leader Caesar and his comrades in an intensifying conflict with an army of humans. With much of the same cast and crew from the previous film returning - writer Mark Bomback, ape actors Andy Serkis and Terry Notary - we're cautiously confident that War will be one of the smartest, most emotionally satisfying summer movies of 2017. 1. Blade Runner 2049 What a difference approximately 35 years make. If, back in 1982, you'd asked anyone involved with Blade Runner whether they thought there'd be a sequel, they'd probably have asked you to get off their lawn. But here we are, worryingly close to the year in which Ridley Scott's sci-fi thriller was set (that's 2019), and along comes its belated follow-up. We have to admit, one of the things we loved about Blade Runner is that it stood all by itself, unsullied by sequels, prequels or remakes, its bleak future world undimmed by the numerous movies, TV shows and games that have freely borrowed from it.

Markets are reading that Erdogan is ready to accept a modest increase in rates, a view I concur with,” says Yesilada. That could be because of the realities of the situation. Concern is growing that if the speed of the lira slide is not eased, the economic fallout could be severe, given that many Turkish companies have borrowed heavily in dollar-denominated loans on a short term basis. Economist Demir says Turkish corporate dollar-denominated debt stands at $213 billion. That's about 25 percent of Turkey's gross domestic product. “The corporate sector large short FX (foreign exchange) position is an important threat,” warns Demir. “I am not expecting a large wave of bankruptcies, but there must be some level in Turkish lira that could lead to more widespread solvency issues. And the pace of the depreciation makes me concerned we might be approaching these levels.

e. the bet that debtors will pay back what they borrowed with interest) is safe, as in guaranteed, bullet-proof, no serious loss of capital is possible, etc.? How about the $60 trillion sovereign (government) bond market? The problem with sovereign bonds is governments with central banks can create money out of thin air to pay interest and redeem maturing bonds, but this devalues the currency. So getting back 100% of your nominal investment doesn't mean you're whole; if the currency the bond is denominated in fell 50%, bondholders suffer a 50% loss in the purchasing power of their initial capital. Ouch. How is that not speculative? How about the $70 trillion in global stocks? Yes, we all know that stocks will never go down ever again because central banks can keep inflating new credit bubbles indefinitelybut let's not kid ourselves: history tells us that stocks remain a speculative gamble.
