If you haven't heard of steam bending it's a specific type of wood-working technique that softens wood so that you can easily mold it to the shape you desire. Designer Bar Gantz , who recently finished studying at Hit-Holon Institute of Technology, created a small capsule collection that was made completely from steam bending. During her research into using steam bending, the challenges she faced were making sure the end product was aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time. As a result, instead of simply bending the wood, she began to twist the wood, to create an added edge to the look. The collection consists of four different objects—a coffee table, a stool, a mirror, and a shelf. The coffee table is made from three wood strips, where the legs were bent into a U-shape to form a steady foundation. The stool is similar to the coffee table in that the strips formed a U-shape for the base, then formed into a triangle to separate the strips from each other.

But Silva remains part of the furniture and has adapted seamlessly to an unfamiliar role alongside De Bruyne in City's midfield engine room. 'Full of confidence' "It is true that I am playing some steps further back sometimes because I have to help in the build-up," Silva said earlier this season. "But Guardiola also gives me freedom to attack and be close to the rival goal and create chances, which is something that I really like. He gives me a lot of freedom and I am very happy playing in this role." Despite his more withdrawn position, Silva remains a decisive presence and has scored or set up six goals in his last 12 appearances. But he has not had the same headline impact as his Monaco namesake, whose eight goals include vital strikes against Villarreal, Tottenham Hotspur and CSKA Moscow and a recent injury-time leveller at Paris Saint-Germain.

They actually sought a clarification from the State Department, and it led to widespread ridicule on Twitter, of course, with imaginary terrorist scenarios involving the pop group Abba, the IKEA furniture company, and even the Swedish Chef from the Muppets. But the White House has now sought to clarify this, as you say, saying the President's comments were about rising crime in Sweden, and recent incidents in the country in general.

Separately, the army's 9th Division moved into the village of Bakhira, also southwest of the city, the Iraqi Ministry of Defense said. The United Nations meanwhile warned that hundreds of thousands of civilians trapped inside their houses are at extreme risk, with dwindling fuel and food supplies and scare drinking water and electricity. The situation is distressing. People, right now, are in trouble, Lise Grande, the U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Iraq, said in a statement. We are hearing reports of parents struggling to feed their children and to heat their homes, Grande said. Citing witnesses in western Mosul, the U.N. said nearly half of all food shops were closed and bakeries had shut down due to a lack of fuel and an inability to purchase costly flour. Prices of kerosene and cooking gas have skyrocketed, and many of the most destitute families are burning wood, furniture, plastic or garbage for cooking and heating.

And for someone like Louise with two young kids, this smart street furniture could make all the difference. Because it tells you which way to go, so it can still be in my pocket I can have their hands, one each, and I can hear the voiceover, so it will say something like the pedestrian crossing's coming on the left. It's there for three days or however long. So if I do the school run the same day, I know exactly where it's going to be, I've walked that walk yesterday.

LAUGHS. And that giant screen size is thanks to a pretty expensive Forke projector. The projector is fitted with an 155-degree fish eye lens, it combines this with two depth-sensing cameras which scan the rooms for objects and furniture. The system then adjusts the image to prevent it becoming distorted. So the idea is that by having a screen which envelopes the peripheral vision of the viewer, you really feel like you're thrown inside the action, and it is surprisingly effective.
