Calling the BMW i sub-brand visionary is no longer a cool thing to do. As a matter of fact, it has been said so many times that most people could consider it a cliche by now and they'd be right. I guess the same could be said about TED talks, where the world's brilliant minds come together to show humanity their latest idea. But what if these two joined forces? Well, hold on to your neuron links because it already happened. The collaboration between the two was announced yesterday during the annual TED Conference in the Canadian city of Vancouver. BMW i is launching a global search for ideas with TED entitledNextVisionaries”. Here, pioneers, strategists and creatives from around the world are invited to outline their ideas for mobility. Applications can be submitted now at the NextVisionaries microsite. During a multi-phase selection process over the next four months, a panel of mentors will choose the most impressive, most promising and most groundbreaking proposals.

I wish there was peace, I still support a two state solution. He had this to say about Palestinians, and how indifferent they are to their own people: In Jericho we were joined by a Palestinian journalist who works with the New York Times. He's no Zionist. He wants to live in a Palestinian state coexisting with a Jewish state. After our meeting he said to us that 24 years later the Palestinian Authority has an interest in the status quo, in not resolving the political impasse. The Palestinian Authority is corrupt, he said... building palatial homes within eyesight of refugee camps, paid for by foreign money. He told us that none of these leader ever set foot in refugee camps. What kind of people, what kind of leadership, would tolerate five generations of refugees and blame it all on the Jews?! Would the Jews tolerate leadership like that, that condones generation after generation of Jews, living in squalor, forgotten by their own leadership that presumes to act and speak on their behalf? Would Americans tolerate this? Would the French? The British? Hirsch told of his group's trip to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and reflected on the question the Holocaust memorial raises: why the allies did not bomb Auschwitz in 1944 (a theme that Laurence Zuckerman dealt with in the Nation ).

After the introduction of the Amazon Echo Look , the online retailer is rumored to be planning the introduction of a screen-equipped Echo device, according to Cnet . Apparently the company has been planning to expand its range for some time, but has accelerated its plans thanks to the rapid development of the Google Home speaker. According to the source, the new device is set to be revealed next month, although the timing could apparently change. From audio to video Before the announcement of the Amazon Echo Look we would have been skeptical of the idea of a screen-equipped Echo, since the point of Amazon's smart speakers so far has been to create an entirely auditory experience. If these rumors end up being true, it would see the Echo lineup transitioning from a lineup of smart speakers, to a voice-controlled personal computer range.

He is joined in the New York County Supreme Court lawsuit by Sofia Dadap, a junior; Julie Norris, a sophomore; and Sapphira Lurie, a senior who says she was raised in a Jewish Zionist household. After putting in their application on Nov. 19, 2015, Awad says, the students believed its approval “would take a few weeks.” Instead, he claims, the students waited nearly a year, as administrators told them that the club’s support of the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions, or BDS, movement would “stir up controversy.” While their application was pending, New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order blocking state agencies from doing business with companies and businesses that back a boycott against Israel. Responding to a Fordham administrator’s concerns about Cuomo’s order, the lawsuit states, “The students explained that boycotts are protected speech activity and that such legislation could not legally prohibit their advocacy for BDS.

It was a different food world as well. In 1972 popular lines for delicatessens included frozen jugged hare, coronation chicken and veal, ham and egg pie. There were gull's eggs in the fridge and the shelves were adorned with packets of Jackson's Tea, tins of Bird's Nest Soup and Campbell's Beef Bouillon. Olive Oil was found mainly in chemists and we sliced smoked salmon by hand and sold bottles of Chablis for 77p. Richard moved on in 1979 to pursue a career in politics and, having worked part-time since 1973, I joined the business full-time on 1 May 1981. Fast forward 45 years, 16,000 days of trading and around 16 million customers and we have moved about 200 yards south-west to the beautiful Duke of York Square on King's Road - I actually work about one mile from where I was born. Along the way we have been granted the royal warrant by the Queen, were co-founders of the Guild of Fine Food Retailers, won the title of Family Business of the Year in Retail, became Commonwealth Export Champions, acquired four new shops, launched more than 20 artisan food markets in London and invented a new concept called Startisans, which gives start-ups the chance to realise their dreams.

There was smoke and more than a hint of fire when Godspeed joined the list of black bookers with his fast finish into fourth behind Young Empire on Wednesday night at Happy Valley. A lightly raced son of Savabeel, Godspeed had displayed a little ability at his trials prior to racing but, on debut, the David Hall-trained gelding was slowly away in a Happy Valley 1,200m and never a factor. Switched to Sha Tin second-up, Godspeed was again outrun over 1,200m and giving all the signs that whatever...

PARIS (AP) A high court has ordered the French state to pay damages to the parents of a teenage girl who managed to go to Syria in an apparent attempt to join Islamic extremists even though they had reported her missing to the police. The council of state ruled Wednesday that border police at a Paris airport should have checked the register of wanted people before letting the 17-year-old fly to Turkey on her way to Syria in 2013. The court found the French state responsible for the police services negligence and awarded 15,000 euros in moral damages plus costs to the parents. No details were given about where the girl is now. More than a third of the nearly 700 French citizens who have reached Iraq and Syria are women, an increasing number of them teenagers, officials have said.
