It’s perfectly acceptable for town driving, though an e-up! remains more composed and comfortable in and out of town. • Best low emissions green cars While outside new colour schemes and badging give away the ForFour’s electric powertrain, inside you’ll have trouble noticing a difference. A power and charge dial has replaced the dashboard-mounted rev counter pod, but that’s about it. There’s plenty of standard kit, though, including sat-nav, climate control and heated leather seats. There’s even a smartphone app allowing you to charge or even pre-heat/cool the ForFour remotely.

Whether tempting finance can soften that sizeable blow deals remains to be seen.

The same dynamics (or lack thereof) are reflected in a recent piece by Chris Hamilton, in which he argues that global growth -as expressed by growth in energy consumption- has largely been non-existent for years, other than in China. Moreover, China has added a stunning amount of debt to achieve that growth, and since its population growth is about to stagnate -and then turn negative-, this was pretty much all she wrote. Global Growth is All About China…Nothing but China Since 2000, China has been the nearly singular force for growth in global energy consumption and economic activity. However, this article will make it plain and simple why China is exiting the spotlight and unfortunately, for global economic growth, there is no one else to take center stage. To put things into perspective I’ll show this using four very inter-related variables…(1) total energy consumption, (2) core population (25-54yr/olds) size and growth, (3) GDP (flawed as it is), and (4) debt.

“However, if it is the president’s desire that Gen. McMaster serve as national security adviser while in his current grade of lieutenant general, the law requires that Gen. McMaster would have to be reappointed by the president and reconfirmed by the Senate in that grade for his new position.” As an alternative, McMaster could retire from active duty or take the national security adviser job as a two-star general. But the White House has already said he'll remain on active duty, and he isn't likely to accept a demotion. Still, the confirmation process doesnt mean McMaster is likely to face a hearing — at least if history is any guide. The last active-duty general to serve as national security adviser was Colin Powell, in the final years of the Reagan administration. Powell did not get a confirmation hearing, according to Arnold Punaro, who was then the Senate Armed Services Committee staff director, as three-star appointments typically do not.

KUALA LUMPUR: Hong Leong Bank Bhd, which posted a net profit of RM549.94 million for the second quarter ended Dec 31, 2016, expects the current financial year ending June 30, 2017 (FY17) to be a reasonable year with its net interest margin (NIM) expected to surpass 2% after experiencing some bottoming in FY16. Its group managing director and CEO Domenic Fuda said the bank had achieved NIM of 2.05% in the first half of FY17 (1H17). This is ahead of its revised NIM target of over 2% for FY17, from a target of more than 1.9% initially. “We think we’ll be able to do better than 2% for the full year. We put emphasis around loan pricing by segment and customer type to ensure that we get an appropriate risk-based pricing,” Fuda told a media briefing after announcing its half-year financial results here yesterday. He added that the bank also retired some long-term funding, which was replaced by shorter-term customer deposits.

The federal courtssystem for electronic filing and access to case dockets contains a serious security flaw that could be exploited by hackers, according to a group devoted to making judicial records available for free on the internet. The Free Law Project disclosed the existence of the security issue publicly in a blog post Monday afternoon but did not provide details about the problem with the online Public Access to Court Electronic Records/Electronic Court Filing system, better known to lawyers, journalists and court personnel as PACER/ECF. “We run a service that helps academics and journalists gather content from PACER,” the project’s Michael Lissner said in a statement Tuesday. “As part of this work, we discovered a major vulnerability that we reported directly to the Administrative Office of the Courts. We hope they’ll urgently provide a fix for this issue so that PACER/ECF can be a secure tool for its many users.

It won't surprise anyone familiar with the classic hundred exercisea grueling Pilates pose performed for 100 beatsthat the practice also does something special to the stomach. Pilates seems to activate the deeper abdominal muscles more than conventional gym exercises, says Duncan Critchley, a lecturer and exercise researcher at Kings College London. Research from Spain shows Pilates also eliminates asymmetries in the abdominal muscles the line the sides of your torso. It's probably not the best workout for those looking for a vigorous sweat, says Wells. Newer forms of the practice use machines to increase resistance and even aerobic intensityreformer Pilates and jumpboard Pilates are two examplesbut they're less studied than the traditional forms of the exercise. Look around online and you'll find plenty of anecdotal evidence that Pilates can help people lose weight or, even more likely, lose inches, but Gibson says her findings were mixed when it came to Pilatess ability to reduce waist circumference.

It's finally here: a way for runners to leave their iPhone behind and still be able to upload their run to Strava at the finish. Strava, one of the most popular running platforms around, has ironically been dragging its feet over launching a native app for the Apple Watch 2 that can use the device's inbuilt GPS but I've been exclusively tipped by Strava that it's finally on the App Store. It brings us another step closer to Apple creating the world's best running watch in the future something I posited two years ago with the launch of the original Watch from the Cupertino brand . There's not a lot to say about the appearance of the new Strava app for the Apple Watch, as it'll basically just do the same job that it does now (tracking time, pace, distance, speed and heart rate) but without the need for a phone welded to your arm the entire time.
