The next big update to Windows 10 is nearly upon us: Windows 10 version 1703, known as the Creators Update, will be published to Windows Update next Patch Tuesday, on April 11th. The final build is—probably15063. That build is already available to insiders and should soon become available for the Windows 10 Media Creation tool, but we also know that there are going to be some patches materializing some time between now and then. There's a small chance those patches will bump the build number; more likely, they will instead bump the patch number, which is currently a pristine and perfect 0 on the desktop. The mobile build has already been bumped, to 15063.2, to handle an installation problem when upgrading from version 1607. Version 1703 has been branded the Creators Update. Frankly, this made more sense in the context of its grand unveiling than it does now; when the Creators Update was revealed, Microsoft also introduced its new Surface Studio desktop computer , and promised that a range of affordable virtual reality headsets would be developed for Windows 10.

Should Fernando Alonso walk out of McLaren midway through the Formula One season, the most likely scenario is that the team would call on Jenson Button to replace him.McLaren have endured a disastrous start to the 2017 campaign, with a wretched time in pre-season testing followed up by a poor performance at the Australian Grand Prix which saw Alonso retire with suspension failure and Stoffel Vandoorne come home 13th and last.The problems facing McLaren have not changed for two years.

Focused around a turf war between rival street gangs, The Warriors is an achingly cool cult film. It showcases '70s New York in all its filth and fury and while its focus is on gang fighting, the film never comes across as an exploitation flick. This is because it's shot with such style and flourish by director Walter Hill that 37 years on, it's still as pertinent as ever. Released at a time when Mel Gibson found his popularity on the wane for various reasons, Apocalypto is one of the actor-director's finest movies. Shot on digital, Apocalypto rattles on at a furious pace, mixing old-fashioned storytelling (about Mayan culture) with huge smatterings of violence. Donnie Yen may have a starring role in Star Wars: Rogue One, but it's in Ip Man where he truly shines. The story revolves around the retelling of the grand master who created the Wing Chin style kung fu and also happened to teach Bruce Lee.

Alan Martin 1 min 50 sec ago Environment Sometimes it’s nice to be proven right. When you’ve put a 25-1 bet on a Grand National winner, for example. Other times, it proves to be more of a hollow victory. When I wrote about Al Gore’s meeting with American president Donald Trump , I was somewhat sceptical that the man behind An Inconvenient Truth had made much of an impression on the president, and judging by the latest executive order from the White House, I was right to be downbeat. Yesterday, flanked by coal miners and company executives, President Trump signed an executive order rolling back more than half a dozen of Barack Obama’s policies designed to tackle climate change. Part of the order instructs the Environmental Protection Agency – y’know, the one headed by a climate change denier recently instructed to hide climate change statistics – to reevaluate the Clean Power Plan (CPP), which required states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to meet the country’s obligations from the Paris Climate Change agreement .
