Kourtney Kardashian has been shocking her fans over the past couple of days [Getty] And the mum of three seems to be on a mission to keep the conversation on her as she got VERY candid with a recent Snapchat. The reality star shared a snap of a box of nipple clamps with her Snapchat followers, and captioned the photo: "Nipple clamp ready." However, it is unknown whether the sex toy was hers or not, as it was still packaged. The raunchy post comes just hours ...

It's been a frustrating first round for the Wild, the second-highest scoring team in the regular season, at 3.21 goals per game. Minnesota has peppered Blues goalie Jake Allen constantly throughout the series, outshooting the Blues 145-107 in four games, but it has just six goals compared to the Blues' nine. The Wild managed to beat the Blues 2-0 in Game 4 to stave off elimination, recording just 28 shotsthe same amount as their opponents. Allen certainly didn't lose his form in Game 4; the first goal came on a botched play by the Blues, allowing Charlie Coyle to shoot with Allen standing away from the goal. Here's the shot, footage shared by the Minnesota Wild: If Allen stays in front of the net, keeps up the stonewalling work and gets a little bit more help on offense, the Blues should be able to clamp down this series at some point in the next three contests.

Between the two you get the usual odo features, a gear position indicator, and things like voltage and engine temperature. Oddly, there's no fuel gauge. The fender brace and top triple clamp are forged aluminum items, and the rear-sets were designed specifically for the Racer. “We decided to go with a unique handlebar setup and foot peg position,” says Ola, “to really get a solid ergonomic, that would reflect the low slung café racer look we were striving for.” In keeping with that vibe, BMW have made the R nineT Racer a solo affair. There's no passenger accommodation out the box, but if you're willing to spring for the parts you can replace the hump with a seat, and fit the subframe braces that hold the passenger pegs. When I was finally done admiring the Racer, it was time to fire it up and hit the streets of Cape Town. Swinging a leg over it immediately brought my back down to earthliterally.

This property of Pi networks in which R2 is much larger than R1 or R3 also has a side effect which is the point of this article. If you were to remove R3, the impedance as seen across R1 would be equal to R1, while if you were to short R3 completely the impedance as seen across R1 would still be pretty close to the value of R1. Thus not only does a resistive Pi network provide impedance matching at the expense of attenuation, it also provides a measure of isolation in the event of a significant impedance mismatch. Thus you can use a Pi-network attenuator to isolate your RF generator from the adverse VSWR effects of a severe mismatch, and create a bench RF source that is effectively bulletproof and can be connected to any impedance without damage. The injection clamp shown in our February feature on EMC testing uses an attenuator for just this purpose.

A Cornwall councillor has called for the closure of a travellers' site unless steps are taken to clamp down on the unruly behaviour of its residents. A number of residents living in St Day and Carharrack have contacted councillor Mark Kaczmarek to complain of noise coming from the Wheal Jewell site, which he says can be heard from both the neighbouring villages. Mr Kaczmarek said: I have received a number of complaints today about the amount of fires (four this month) at the Wheal...

The seat's been finished off with a gorgeous diamond-stitched leather. Things still looked a bit gawky at the back, so the guys made a pair of number boards to draw the eye and hide more of the frame. Lower down, they removed the air box and built a new electrical tray to tuck everything away under the seat. It took an extensive rewire—and the addition of a Lithium-ion battery—to get everything to fit. The rest of the bike underwent extensive tweaking, and a fair whack of restoration work too. Kerkus dropped the front suspension a bit to correct the stance, but kept the Honda's 18Comstar wheels. They've been repainted in gloss black, and wrapped in classic tires from Swallow (a popular brand in Malaysia). Up front are new clip-ons, grips and controls, and a slick new triple clamp sporting Kerkus' logo. The headlight's an off-the-shelf item, but the brackets holding it are one-offs.

Labour tax the rich more if it wins? Labour will force those people into transparency over their tax collection and use it to clamp down on tax evasion and avoidance, and taxed down on impunity in the society. I will have to pause there. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having a good debate here today. In the last.

In fact, Ill probably get to halfway and feel so good that Ill be able to make up the few minutes needed to go under three hours. This will be great. That means the next question is: how to run this race? Well, all the decent marathon runners and scientific data tells me that the best way to run a marathon is at an even pace. Theres an excellent breakdown of pacing at the London Marathon by Barry Smyth, Professor of Computer Science at University College Dublin over on Medium , where hes taken the pacing of the average runner, those that set a PB and elite runners who are probably quite good at this. The data shows clearly the phases most runners will experience: early excitement where they running 15-20% faster than their (eventual) average speed, the pace-dropping panic as the miles close in and then a destructive finish as the jaws of the marathon clamp down around mile 20, chewing them so hard until theyre only able to stumble across the line.

"Consumers won't give you a free pass just because you put 'Made in USA' on the box," Keechle says. "You have to remain price competitive." Keeping a sharp eye on labor costs in their factory is one thing these U.S. Manufactures can control. They see replacing primarily lower-skilled workers on the assembly line with robots on American factory floors as the only way to produce here in a financially viable, cost-competitive way. It’s a trend that runs against the narrative candidate Donald Trump used to win the U.S. presidency. Since taking office, Trump has continued promises to resurrect U.S. manufacturing's bygone glory days and bring back millions of jobs. On March 31, Trump directed his administration to clamp down on countries that abuse trade rules in a bid to end to the "theft of American prosperity." But it's more complicated on the ground for companies like Monster Moto.

That is something that our headquarters decides, he said during the 40-minute interview in Pyongyang, which is now gearing up for a major holiday — and possibly a big military parade — on Saturday. At a time and at a place where the headquarters deems necessary, it will take place. The North conducted two such tests last year alone. The first was of what it claims to have been a hydrogen bomb and the second was its most powerful ever. The annual U.S.-South Korea military exercises have consistently infuriated the North, which views them as rehearsals for an invasion. Washington and Seoul deny that, but reports that exercises have included decapitation strikes aimed at the North's leadership have fanned Pyongyang's anger. Han said Trump's tweets have also added fuel to the flames. Trump posted a tweet Tuesday in which he said the North is looking for trouble and reiterated his call for more pressure from Beijing, North Korea's economic lifeline, to clamp down on trade and strengthen its enforcement of U.
