Oh, and he has a 9'6" reach and 7'7" wingspan. This isn't all about simple measurements, especially when Jeanne seems to come in a bit lighter than some might prefer, but if he can keep filling out his frame, he'll eventually be a starter at the pro level. But with Jeanne it's not so much the size as it is the skill set he pairs with it. The French star can shoot with great range, as Applebome 's colleague, Jonathan Givony , pointed out: "His skill-set is extremely unique for a 7-footer, as he handles the ball impressively in both the half-court and full-court, and has range out to the 3-point line, even shockingly being capable of making pull-up jumpers off isolation plays. Defensively, he moves his feet well and has obvious potential with his combination of mobility, size and length, even if he's far from being a polished player here." Jeanne probably doesn't represent the next evolution of the pro game, but what he brings to the table sure doesn't hurt considering the premium placed on spacing and shooting right now.

If you are camping during rainy season, or just want a TSA-approved lighter, these plasma torches make perfect travel companions. These gas-free lighters create a small plasma beam that’s safer than butane to use and more environmentally friendly. It creates a super-hot, splashproof flame so you can get a campfire going, or have a smoke in the rain. Their lithium-ion batteries get 3 hours of life on a single charge, and power up easily via micro USB cable. A 2-pack of these plasma torch lighters usually costs $200, but you can get them here for just $29.99 .

Its been a long time since weve seen an update for the ZenBook Pro UX501 and now Asus has really delivered with the new ZenBook Pro. It features beefier specs with Intel Core i7 H-series processors and an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and yet its thinner and lighter than ever. The new hardware not only puts it on par with 15-inch workstations like the MacBook Pro and Dell XPS 15 , but also gaming laptops. And considering its $1,299 (about 1,010, AU$1,750) starting price, this 15-inch thin-and-light notebook could catch the attention of many students. Design The Asus ZenBook Pro UX501 always looked like the odd one out of the ZenBook family due to its thicker body and the concentric circles pattern etched into the keyboard deck. The new ZenBook Pro falls in line with diamond-cut, aqua blue chassis established by the ZenBook 3 and ZenBook UX305 before it.

Mechanical changes have been kept to a minimum, but sharper looks and improved infotainment aim to boost its appeal. As before, there’s a choice of £28,135 standard or £29,635 Advance trims; we test the latter. While its rivals here place their eco credentials front and centre, the Golf aims to inject some sporty driving appeal into the mix. With 201bhp it’s well ahead of the 121bhp Toyota and far lighter than the similarly powerful Kia. As a result, it dominated at our track, setting the pace in all our performance tests. Image 32 of 42 Image 32 of 42 For instance, it completed the 0-60mph sprint in a mere 6.8 seconds, which was 1.3 seconds quicker than the Kia. It also had the Optima comfortably beaten during our in-gear assessments, where it was 2.5 seconds faster from 50-70mph in sixth. In the real world, the differences are equally obvious.

This book begins with an "archaeological axiom": "One stone is a stone./ Two stones is a feature./ Three stones is a wall./ Four stones is a building./ Five stones is a palace./ (Six stones is a palace built by aliens.)" The word "aliens" takes a jab at Erich vonniken, whose 1968 book, Chariots of the Gods , theorizes that the Nazca Lines in Peru were made solely for the benefit of "ancient astronauts." "What is wrong," Cline quotes vonniken as writing, "with the idea that the lines were laid out to say to the gods': Land here! Everything has been prepared as you ordered!'" So very scientific! In fact the Nazcas and others made the lines by simply picking rocks up "to reveal the lighter-colored sand underneath" and no one knows for sure why. Various theories point to mapping constellations, tracking water sources, or carrying out religious rites on ceremonial paths.
