"They know it's necessary to cooperate with Iran because Iran has a growing influence in the whole region." - Back at the table - Indeed, Iran has seen a string of successes throughout the Middle East in recent months. As well as battlefield successes in Syria, Tehran saw its chosen candidate win the presidency in Lebanon, and its regional rival Saudi Arabia increasingly bogged down in the Yemen conflict and struggling with falling oil revenues. Just getting to the negotiating table has been a major turnaround for Iran, which was frozen out of previous UN-sponsored peace talks on Syria. The nuclear deal it signed in 2015 with world powers brought it back into the fold, helping to earn it a place at an international conference on Syria in Vienna in October of that year. By then, it had become hard to ignore Iran's central role in the conflict.

Being number one isn't a lot of fun. Just ask Apple, which was just called "boring" by a prominent former employee. With a market cap of over $639 billion , Apple is the biggest company in the world. It has enviable profits and unit sales (every quarter it manages to sell tens of millions of iPhones, though that number is declining) and is slowly, but smartly, shifting its attention to its highly lucrative services business, which includes the App Store and Apple Pay. SEE ALSO: Is Apple's App Store a monopoly? It's also one of the most heavily scrutinized companies on the planet. Apple cultivates a level of secrecy and loyalty rarely found in business. Which is why when one member of the fold cleaves off and starts talking, people listen. Read more... More about Tim Cook , Ipad , Iphone , Apple , and Tech

Automatic driving engaged. There we go. Once I put this down, fold it down... Here we go. Amazing. Now we can relax! Yet, while Bosch are more about creating parts, the car manufacturers themselves have some similar ideas. Like the Bosch car, this BMW concept vehicle also uses ultrasonics. It means I can interact in mid air.

Earlier today the Supreme Court announced bus drivers would have to do more to make sure parents with buggies made room for wheelchair-using passengers. In a landmark ruling over the case of Doug paulley - who was denied access to a bus in 2012 as there were already two pram-wielding parents aboard - it was even said bus drivers should refuse to continue the journey until parents fold down the buggies if the space is needed by a disabled passenger. And the news caused quite a reaction on our...

Draw a circle around the perimeter of the stool, leaving about 3 overage so you you can fold it over the stool after stuffing it. 4. Cut out the circle of fabric. 5. Using the ruler, measure and mark at 2 on the legs of the stool if you'd like to add a dip effect. Of course, you can go higher or lower than the 2, but that's what we used. 6. Use masking or painter's tape around the stool legs, taping all the way around and sealing the edges tightly with your index finger. (Tip: When I'm using tape with paint and plan on removing it, I always fold the end of my tape onto itself so I have a little tab to pull when I take it off. That way, you don't have to scrape the edge of the tape to remove it, which can sometimes be frustrating if you've sealed the edges really well!) 7. Using the contrasting paint of your choice, paint below the tape to the bottom of the stool legs.

A mum wouldn't move her pushchair. One comment says, the trouble with modern pushchairs as they are not designed to fold flat. Bryony says, wheelchair users should get priority. Any parent can collapse a pushchair and put it in the luggage hold. If more people realised they could be disabled tomorrow, there would be more facilities.

The interior surface which is dressed in Piano Black also features chrome elements and just like all the other MINI, this car comes with automatic air-conditioning. With Park Distance Control, entering or leaving the tightest parking space becomes much easier while driving this car. Another feature in this car would be the extra helpings of fun urban driving that can be summoned with a touch of the Sport Button, which tweaks the engine’s responses and the power assistance provided by the steering. The versatile character of the new MINI Countryman JCW Design Edition is further emphasized with a boot space of 350 litres, which can be extended to 1,170 litres when seats are folded down. The 40:20:20 split rear seats that fold down individually, can also slide 13cm forward for more space in the boot. With the split-folding rear seats, customization to the seating arrangement is made possible to accommodate more cargo without sacrificing passenger comfort.

With the rise of Snapchat and other digital platforms, are you worried about attracting millennial and Gen Z users? We just looked at this, but I actually think on a millennial basis were pretty comparable to Snapchat and were significantly bigger than Snapchat when youre trying to reach female millennials. Pinterest has always been a platform for marketers, but it hasnt ever broken out in a big way. What is it going to take? I would agree that theres a perception that Pinterest is just there. I built all of Facebooks ad products in 2006 and 2007, and the conversations that Im having with marketers right now are conversations that I had with marketers in 2008 and 2009. The perception of Pinterest kind of being there but not having crossed into the main fold of advertising spend is driven by a bit of a distorted view about how Google and Facebook got to where they got.

Because of this work, Ive been contacted nearly a dozen times by inmates and their family members asking for my help. For the past month, however, the calls, text, emails, and voice mails from families and inmates have increased 10-fold. And I dont know what to tell them anymore. I cant tell them that their loved one will probably die in prison, though this is likely the stark truth. It hurts because I know many of these individuals in prison, and I know many families with loved ones inside. Obamas campaign ran on hope, and I experienced it firsthand through my freedom and the hope that others like me would experience it too. But now that hope is gone. type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related... + articlesList=55a7cc21e4b0896514d07415,587e5e33e4b0aaa36942cd0f -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Practicality is greatly improved, too. There’s significantly more knee room for rear seat passengers, while even tall adults have plenty of headroom. The seats also slide and recline to let owners juggle bootspace and interior space. The boot itself is 100 litres bigger than before (and 70 litres bigger than a VW Golf ), with neat options like a smart electric tailgate and a fold-out picnic cushion underneath the boot floor. The new platform also brings the Countryman’s chassis and engines right up to date with the rest of MINI’s range. It launches in the UK with the same turbo petrol and diesel engines found in the Clubman, although the only variant available for us to try on the launch was the range-topping Cooper S with the ALL4 all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed automatic gearbox. We’ll be testing the more popular Cooper D in the coming weeks.

It was so far gone. But, I got it fairly cheap and spent 7 years taking it apart and putting it back together again. I ended up actually consolidating it by shortening and lowering it to use what was left of the truck. Conforming to a chart we found online, it showed the different heights and lengths they made them in. So instead of the second longest and tallest version of the truck we built it into the shortest and lowest version by slicing and dicing things. We also re-skinned the whole body in aluminum, which was actually a factory option. We ended up with a fairly good looking truck. It’s a good old truck. I designed a bi-fold rear door that comes down and makes a long ramp so the car can drive right up into the back. It took me a little longer than planned but it came out pretty good. It’s a rare enough truck, the Fageol, that a lot of people have seen pictures of one but never seen one in person.
