A mew months ago, [wermy] built the mintyPi, a Raspberry Pi-based gaming console that fits inside an Altoids tin. It's amazing there's a composite LCD, an audio DAC, and a chopped up Nintendo controller all connected to a Raspberry Pi for vintage gaming goodness on the road. Now, there's a new mintyPi. The mintyPi 2.0 vastly improves over the earlier generation of this groundbreaking mint-based gaming console with a better screen, better buttons, customized 3D printed bezels, and better audio. Truly, we live in a Golden Age. Version two of mintyPi uses 3D printed parts and includes a real hinge to keep the display propped up when the Altoids tin is open. Instead of a DAC-based audio solution, [wermy] is using a USB sound card for clearer, crisper sound. This version also uses the new, wireless version of the Raspberry Pi Zero. The Raspberry Pi Zero W allows this Altoids tin to connect to the Internet or, alternatively, gives the user the ability to dump ROMs on this thing without having to connect it to a computer.

With only five months to go until the expected big reveal, it's fair to say the 2017 iPhone rumor mill is very much up and running - and this weekend we've got another image leak that gives us clues about the potential design for the iPhone 8. The shots in these photos are of a dummy device mocked up based on Apple's designs for their upcoming phone, courtesy of Twitter user Benjamin Geskin and reported by 9to5Mac . It's not clear how recent this design is but it fits with what we've seen so far . Specifically, we're talking about a dual lens camera with one lens above the other (supposedly for some advanced 3D or augmented reality effects) and a distinct lack of bezels around the front of the device. The power button also seems to be longer. There's no slot on this design for a Touch ID sensor around the back of the device - which has been rumored, with the suggestion being Apple is struggling to get the necessary tech embedded in an all-glass, bezel-free front .

WFB: Linda Sarsour claimed that feminists cannot be Zionists. What do you make of this comment? Sommers: Complete rubbish and either breathtakingly ignorant or (more likely) malicious. Israel is a democracy that had a female prime minister before most other nations (including our own). Jewish and Arab women serve in parliament, teach at world-class universities, and have equal protection under the law. Certainly, things aren't perfect. I'm not naive. But the exclusion of Zionism from feminism really has nothing to do with women; rather, the extreme left has a sorry history of demonizing democracies and glorifying authoritarian states. Sarsour fits right in. WFB: Should religion be a significant factor of feminism, and how does religion affect feminism? Sommers: Feminism should be about respecting women's choices. That includes their choice to follow, or not follow, a particular religion.

I work from home as a freelance writer/editor in a room that once was my formal dining room, which I transitioned into an office, as I wasn't content with sitting at my kitchen island on my laptop for hours on end every day. The room is jam-packed with furniture that didn't quite work anywhere else in my home. That printed floral chair I bought for a corner of my bedroom that didn't really fit? It's in my office. Those marble side tables from West Elm that were too small for my living room sofa? Also in my office. Oh, and that sofa I picked up as a steal of a deal from HomeGoods that used to be in my formal living room but no longer fits because my dining table is there now...yup...office. READ MORE »

Nearly every time you’re working on your bike , there are three types of tools that you’ll need: Wrenches, screwdrivers and pliers. Let’s start with wrenches, or spanners as they're usually called in Britain. Since your motorcycle is mostly bolted together, you’ll need different types of wrenches to take it apart. So I’m going to focus on the wrenches that give you the most ability at the lowest cost. The Ring-and-Open-End Wrench This is probably the most used tool in my kit. Let’s look at it in more detail. Not surprisingly, there’s a ‘ring’ end and an ‘open’ end, and you need to select the size that fits over the bolt or nut snugly. Nut and bolt sizes are all standardized, so you will find there is one wrench that fits best. Let's look at how the wrench drives a nut or bolt head: The ring end should be your first choice. The ring fits over the nut and contacts all six corners.

Enlarge / The new Audi R8 LMS GT4 car. (credit: Jonathan Gitlin) Video shot and edited by Jennifer Hahn. (video link) NEW YORKAudi Sport is to Audi what M is to BMW or AMG to Mercedes—the tuning arm, the skunk works where cars go to lose weight, gain power and find extra speed for the track. The US is a big market for Audi Sport, and the brand had several models on display at this year's New York International Auto Show. There was the TT-RS and the brand new RS5 Coupe, but for us the real star of its stand was a new racing car, the R8 LMS GT4. Audi Sport customer racing is separate from the factory backed efforts in DTM and the now-shuttered World Endurance Championship program, and you can actually buy these cars to run yourself. The new GT4 car fits into a gap between the RS3 LMS—a front-wheel drive touring car—and the R8 LMS GT3. That car has been a sales hit; more than 200 R8 GT3s have found homes thus far, and it's racked up quite a lot of wins (including a memorable race in Macau where one GT3 finished the race upside down ).

Of the four candidates with a realistic chance to become Frances next president, three oppose Western sanctions against Russia. Two would take France out of Natos military command, or perhaps remove it from the alliance altogether. And the one candidate who fits neither category would dramatically increase European defence cooperation to lessen dependence on what he regards as an unreliable US. In or out?

The danger here is that the training police officers commonly receive on detecting deception is fraught with error. Next, coercive tactics are introduced. The interrogation may be filled with accusations that the suspect is guilty, lies that there is convincing evidence against that person (police are legally permitted to lie to you) and promises of leniency and sympathy. The interrogation may last a few hours, or in some cases, even a few days. Once the innocent suspect admits his or her guilt, the police then (perhaps inadvertently) contaminate the suspects memory. Its not enough for the suspect to say, I did it; he or she must also provide a detailed narrative of the crime that fits the evidence. Whether this is done by asking leading questions (as was the case in Brendan Dasseys interrogation , presenting the suspect with crime scene photos or playing on the suspects memory, the goal is to get the suspect to provide a detailed confession.

This is backed up by the least agile chassis – although the trade-off is a good level of comfort. As long as you avoid big potholes, the Citroen’s suspension moves with the road nicely, meaning you can make surprising and relatively relaxed progress. It’s best to drive the C3 using the punch lower down in the range. The PureTech unit gets a little rougher higher up, becoming more vocal with revs. The Citroen doesnt like to be hustled, and although there’s a respectable level of grip on offer, you can’t lean on the chassis like you can in the VW. Image 31 of 40 Image 31 of 40 The C3 prefers a calmer approach, which fits with the car’s character – that’s why the Citroen is a convincing supermini that delivers comfort and usability with the benefit of decent performance. Testersnotes: “The Airbumps on the C3’s flanks should help prevent dents in car parks, but they’re only standard on the Flair model.

Another was its genuine 11,000 miles and irresistibly modest £3300 price. Low-mileage oldies are a big draw for me because the likelihood of the car driving as its maker intended is that bit greater. Its structure will barely have weakened, dampers and bushes should still be resilient, corrosion minimal and the cabin freakishly unworn. All apply to this TR. The same can’t quite be said of the creased driver’s seat in my daily Rover 75 2.5 V6, despite its modest 63,000 miles. I reckon its previous owner was big, a further clue being the distance the seat travelled when I pressed the first electric preset. Besides leather heated memory seats, this car has climate control, a sumptuous Harman Kardon stereo, an electric sunroof, electric rear sunblind and a Chinese infotainment system that fits the centre console as if it had been there from day one.

In an era of profound cultural transformation, elections and referendums have very real consequences ― such as the repeal of environmental regulations or crackdowns on press freedom. But as much as they reveal how markedly divided societies are at this historical moment, they settle little. For those who are nostalgic for an ideal past, the challenges of a complex future wrought by globalization, digital disruption and increasing cultural diversity remain unresolved. For those looking ahead, there is no going back. The present political reaction is only the first act, not the last. It is the beginning, not the end, of the story of societies in fluid transition. The recent Turkish referendum , like Brexit and U.S. President Donald Trump s election , fits a pattern of a territorial divide. Residents in large cities and coastal zones linked to global integration and cosmopolitan culture represented just under half of the vote; rural, small-town and Rust Belt regions linked more to the traditions and economic structures of the past were just over half.

The ergonomic design is particularly useful because it conforms to your body and allows you to rest your arms, effectively reducing pressure and inspiring movement. What makes the desk really special, however, is its AI Box integration that turns the desk into a personal assistant that can use voice commands for adjusting desk height, ordering lunch, and can even control Smart home devices. If the whole Alexa CIA video creeped you out too much to want any more voice controlled devices, fear not as the AI Box is optional and can be leveraged through a companion app instead. 4.

Large rectangles are often the shapes given when a witness believes they’re seeing a “mothership.” Other than internal space, why would a mothership need to be rectangular or square instead of round? A secret military plane seems more likely, especially when the front is a pointed angle. That shape fits flying wings and similar crafts. But what about the reports of square UFOs with the flat edge in front? That doesnt seem too efficient, even for a sophisticated propulsion system. Hats off as always to MUFON for their excellent research and database and to NUFORC for their reports as well. Let’s hope one day we’ll all see one of these square UFOs close-up. This article ( Unidentified Square Objects Replacing Saucers and Triangles ) was originally published on Mysterious Universe and syndicated by The Event Chronicle .

Back in January, accessory maker Elago launched the W3 Charging Stand for Apple Watch , which housed Apple's modern wearable within a silicone shell that looked just like the Macintosh computer from 1984. This week, Elago is launching another nostalgic accessory, this time allowing users to turn their iPhone 7 , 6s, or 6 into an old Mac. Called the M4 Stand for iPhone , the charging stand functions exactly like the Apple Watch version: users slide their iPhone into the side of the silicone housing, and there's a pass-through rail underneath the stand for Lightning cable organization. In terms of size, the M4 Stand is about 5.8 inches long, 4.3 inches wide, and 5 inches tall. View your iPhone through a blast from the past. Your iPhone fits perfectly into the stand and transforms it into an old Apple monitor. The M4 Stand is made with scratch-free silicone to prevent damage to your iPhone and cable; the material's unique properties allow the stand to feel soft to the touch and provide weight to plant your stand on any flat surface.
