It shows his diligence. He is right in saying this is brutally honest. If you are going to look to the future and have an industrial strategy that reflects on the challenges that we have then you need to be clear eyed about it and, when it comes to the force of technical education, for example, when it comes to the imbalances that we have, some very prosperous areas, some that can catch up, then it is right to be ambitious.

If you’ve been riding shotgun with Petrolicious since the early days, you’ll recognize the name James Chen. If not, you need to catch up—we’ve featured not one , not two , but three of his machines in our Made To Drive film series. Founder of Axis Wheels , longtime friend of Petrolicious, and overall great guy, James Chen recently had the opportunity to experience a very intimate event through his home country: Rally Nippon 2016 in Taiwan. Mr. Chen was eager to share this incredible classic car contest with us and we’re sure glad he did, as it was quite the spectacle. Here’s the inside scoop from the man himself. Andrew Golseth: So, in 2016 the Rally Nippon Japanese event was held in Taiwan? James Chen: The story is a bit philosophical. I was born in Taiwan and moved to the United States when I was six. I try to go back on an annual basis. I’ve got some business interests over there and some family, so I go there once a year, or every other year.

Under the 10-year agreement, Uber agreed to the license fee, as well as increased background checks on drivers and a zero-tolerance policy for driving under the influence. With the order granting the motion to dismiss the case, both Newark and Uber are allowed to continue their operations, while travelers can still catch an Uber on the arrivals level at their terminal. Furthermore, the lawsuit could clear ride-sharing operations at other airports in the United States. Other major cities, including Austin , have faced lawsuits dealing with the legality of ride-sharing operations at airports and other places where they compete with taxis. Although the lawsuit is settled for the moment, Uber and Newark are not necessarily in the clear; the Newark Cab Association could still appeal the decision. Neither side has formally commented about the judge's decision. Featured image courtesy of Uber.

Slack and similar workplace chat software may have changed how we communicate with our coworkers, but they haven't necessarily cut down on how often we communicate with them. Now, the San Francisco-based Slack believes the next big improvement in office communication will be software that helps workers stay on top of important messages. It's actually quite time consuming sometimes to keep up with Slack, says Noah Weiss, who heads Slack's Search, Learning, and Intelligence department. Broadly speaking, Weiss and his team are working on making their software better at surfacing important conversations and information, similar to the way Netflix surfaces movie recommendations based on users' viewing habits. On a practical level, Slack hopes to cut down the amount of time it takes to catch up on a day's worth of Slack messages from more than an hour to 10 minutes, Weiss says.

Forget about drives to the basket that result in thunderous slams. Clear your mind of post-up moves and alley-oop finishes. Don't worry about touch shots right around the basket. Shootingof the actual jump-shooting varietyis the only thing that should concern you. Pull-up jumpers from outside the paint that keep defenses off balance? Those matter. Triples off the bounce that produce a satisfying swish as they rip through nylon? Those certainly count. Catch-and-shoot jumpers out of the corners? Yep, those are relevant here. Everything from 10 feet and beyond matters, and objectivity reigns supreme in these rankings, which count down to the league's paragon of jump-shooting volume and efficiency this season. Those last two words are vital, because we're only interested in what's happened during the first half of the 2016-17 campaign.

Milestone moments do not a year make. Often, its the smaller news stories that add up, gradually, to big history. With that in mind, in 2017 TIME History will revisit the entire year of 1967, week by week, as it was reported in the pages of TIME, to see how it all comes together. Catch up on last weeks installment here. Week 4: Jan. 27, 1967 Illustrated with several pages of color photos , this cover story traced the growing awareness that belching smokestacks that long symbolized prosperity were becoming a source of irritation, or worse. Though air pollution wasn't a new phenomenon, it was getting worse as consumption of power increased in the U.S. and around the world, causing $11 billion a year in property damage alone and numerous health problems. It was also, the magazine noted, causing a gradual warming trend that could melt the polar ice crapsa warning that may sound like something meant for today's readers, not those of 50 years ago.

facebook twitter google+ How can MSPs introduce security into their portfolios, and where should they start? Demand from customers for managed security solutions from their IT service providers continued to grow in 2016, in line with headline-grabbing tales of data breaches and cyber attacks. The in old days, FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) was the way customers were sold security products and services. The line of some was 'buy firewall X to stop the hackers' or 'anti-virus X will catch more malware to stop critical data from being wiped out'. Yet, in reality there is no single solution. Knowledge is power The single biggest factor in creating a secure environment is knowledge, combined with well-defined processes and policies alongside properly implemented security controls. It is absolutely true that well-designed software, hardware and services can make the job easier and reduce risk levels, but owning a great saw does not make you a carpenter.

facebook twitter google+ How can the channel enable and assist their customers on their Digital Transformation journeys? If someone were to ask you for the top talking points in the IT industry in 2016, it’s likely Digital Transformation would be up there. We’ve seen the concept pushed hard by IT vendors and other interested parties for a while now, but this year saw the idea finally begin to move beyond the hype cycle and into the boardroom. In fact, by the end of 2017, IDC estimates that two-thirds of the CEOs of global 2000 enterprises will have digital transformation at the centre of their corporate strategy. But what does this seemingly catch-all phrase really mean? And how can the channel take advantage of the movement? There are countless definitions to be found, but essentially digital transformation is the application of technology to business processes which can help an organisation flourish – whether that’s streamlining operations, getting closer to customers, enabling employees to become more productive or creating cost savings.

When the detective failed to catch Hart acting out of the ordinary, the Grammy winner took her snooping a step further, he says, by donning a disguise and following her husband herself! One night as I left the classroom, I heard a woman's voice in the hallway. She was greeting all the students in a heavy Spanish accent. As I passed, I caught a glimpse of her bright red hair, spike heels, and red lipstick, Hart recalls. In a thickly accented voice, she said, Good evening!' I turned and stared straight at her. It took me a moment to realize that it was Carly dressed as a Latina hooker! The star allegedly called her sexy alias Snake. Simon's paranoia reared its ugly head outside of the relationship as well, as she suffered from frequent panic attacks.

Parents have come to count on being able to pick their kids up in the afternoon or put them to bed, because they're able to catch up online later at night. And there are plenty of people who do their best work at 3 a.m. In fact, a majority of working adults recently surveyed by the American Psychological Association say that being able to check work email at home makes it easier to get more done; many also said it improved their relationships with colleagues. Perhaps that's why so many efforts to impose blanket ruleslike Intel's Quiet Time, a 2008 experiment in which a group of employees cut off their means of communication for one morning a weekhaven't gotten much traction. For now, it seems, the best way for employers to foster a fulfilled, productive workforce is to be flexible, both inside and outside the office. One example: Vynamic, a health care consulting startup in Philadelphia, which has a policy discouraging, but not banning, email use from 10 p.

A record number of drivers were stopped for using mobile phones while on the move during a concerted police clampdown in November 2016 British police caught close to 8000 drivers using mobile phones behind the wheel in a clampdown that lasted one week in November. In total, 7966 drivers were found to be on the phone, leading to more than 7800 fixed penalty notices and 68 court summons. Police stopped 10,012 vehicles, with 117 people charged for being distracted behind the wheel for offences such as eating while driving. Police said the record-high numbers were achieved thanks to the use of new policing techniques that included unmarked vans and motorbike-mounted police wearing helmet cameras. So-called community spotters are also providing police with the locations of offence hotspots ahead of a new weeklong clampdown that has started today. Government to enforce zero-tolerance policy for drivers using mobile phones “This week forces will be working to make driving distracted as socially unacceptable as drink driving through enforcing strong deterrents and powerful messages to make people think twice about their driving habits,” said chief constable Suzette Davenport, who is the National Police ChiefsCouncil's boss for roads policing.
