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.

based on the interventions we're now making. The SNP's great boast is that students don't pay tuition fees in Scotland, if you're Scottish. You claim it improves social mobility. So why is it twice as hard for a Scottish kid from a deprived background to get to university than an English kid from a deprived background? Well, firstly, we're seeing record numbers of Scottish young people going to university. That's true in England too. OK, but including record numbers of young people from the most deprived backgrounds. Still twice as hard

In India, 346 kilometres of Metro Rail is operational at present. Around 530 kilometres is under construction in various cities and more than 800 kilometres is under consideration with various state governments, Naidu said. He also used the opportunity for drawing attention to the need for enhancing the public transport capacity in the city to provide the first and last mile connectivity. He said that focus should be on more cycle tracks and better public transport in Delhi. "The culture now is that every member of family is having a car which is not right," he said. "I would like to mention that the cities which have taken a holistic approach to urban mobility planning and have adopted a comprehensive set of well-integrated measures have succeeded in addressing the issues such as pollution, congestion, lack of connectivity etc," he stressed.

NAGPUR: Banking on the shared mobility space after launch of India's maiden electric vehicle project in Nagpur, automobile giant Mahindra & Mahindra is eyeing a capacity of 5,000 e-vehicles a month by 2019 which will be expanded further. On May 26, Nagpur earned the distinction of becoming the country's first city with a fleet of 200 electric vehicles, including taxis, buses, e-rickshaw and autos. "So far Mahindra & Mahindra has been looking more at personal segment but the usage there will not be as much as it will be in shared mobility. Shared mobility space has become very viable...suddenly, there will be a huge demand pull that will happen for the electric vehicles," Mahindra & Mahindra Managing Director Pawan Goenka told PTI. Goenka said that as of now, the company has a capacity of producing 400 electric vehicles a month which would be ramped up to 5,000 a month in two years.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said there had been "excellent" discussion on the need boost economic opportunity, in particular during outreach sessions with five African leaders on Saturday, so that people "are not driven to take desperate measures to improve their lot". Both the United States and Britain opposed the Italian pre-summit initiative to draft a stand-alone G-7 statement entitled "G7 Vision on Human Mobility", an Italian official said. Open, safe, legal paths That document included language on the need for open, safe and legal paths for migrants and refugees, according to excerpts seen by Reuters. Italy has been put under increasing pressure as EU partners have refused to relocate large numbers of asylum seekers, and some have closed their southern borders to keep migrants out of their own countries, effectively sealing them in Italy.

The Oxfam charity consortium accused the Trump administration of blocking any agreement on human mobility. “As the leaders fly home from Taormina they will look down on the waters that have claimed thousands of lives on the G-7’s watch,” said the British-based international confederation of 20 non-governmental organizations. Along with the United States, the other members of the G-7 are Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Britain. The EU is also represented. The Africa-focused anti-poverty group One says the communique sets a “new low” for the G-7 in a year of “greatly diminished expectations.” “The early promise of this summit was crushed by the Trump administration's hostile negotiating posture and the evident lack of ambition of other leaders,” said the international advocacy group’s statement.

When, approximately one year ago, Rolls-Royce presented 103EX to the world, it invoked its coachbuilding heritage to inspire its future clientele. This Vision Vehicle envisaged a world of completely personal luxury mobility where new technologies would allow every Rolls-Royce to be designed in their ownersimage, should they wish. Such a Rolls-Royce would represent the truest meaning of luxury – a personal, Bespoke motor car like no other for each individual commissioning patron. The mere idea of a modern coachbuilt Rolls-Royce was not enough for one Rolls-Royce connoisseur however. This individual approached the marque with his own idea of a two-seat Rolls-Royce that he wanted to be created in the here and now. That motor car is here, now and is christenedSweptail’. In a nod to the swept-tail of certain Rolls-Royces from the 1920s, admired by the client so much, he asked Rolls-Royce to reimagine this feature on his one-off motor car.

That's because a mobility ramp was severely dented, and the occupants were worried they would not be able to release the wheelchair user when they got home.

At the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2017, the BMW Group is presenting its vision of zero-emission urban mobility on two wheels: the BMW Motorrad Concept Link. Inspired by the BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100, the design study unites digital connectivity with the demands of urban mobility on two wheels. “The BMW Motorrad Concept Link stands for a new understanding of urban mobility. It links the digital and analogue world and places the focus on the rider and his mobility needs. In the way it links functionality and digitalisation it performs both as a means of transport as well as a communication device. For me the BMW Motorrad Concept Link, with its timeless and reduced style, is more than a concept – it is rather a symbol for a new era.” explains Edgar Heinrich, Head of Design of BMW Motorrad. The special character of the concept vehicle becomes clear right away thanks to the completely new design language.

Wilfred Collins 3 min 45 sec ago Cars Let’s face it, getting around cities can be a bit of chore these days. More of us rush to urban centres to seek better opportunities, and that means roads are getting crowded and public transport stretched to the limit. The answer? BMW believes it’s the BMW Motorrad Concept Link, an emissionless, two wheeled vehicle it thinks is the future of urban mobility. Unveiled at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2017 in Munich, the Motorrad Concept brings BMW’s current ideas of electric cars to a tech-infused two-wheeler, and boasts zero-emissions running on an energy packs – just like the i3 and i8, to an extent. The Motorrad would look pretty distinguished on the roads, as its Liquid Metal Titanium has a very BMW feel to it, and the semi-matte black on the front creates a nice contrast. The design features a low-slung stretched body with a flat seat, while BMW’s iconic lights have been placed into the rear side panels.

It's not possible to think about establishing a universal healthcare system that would be much more cost effective and cover everyone if so many people are prepared to believe fear-mongering and conspiracy theories about how other Westerners are not free because they live under a tyranny of socialized medicine. Even when modern Americans tend to agree that there is a problem; say, the economy being not dynamic enough, they have radically opposed views about how to resolve it. Usually, American Liberals will see the government taking a more active role in redistributing wealth, promoting social benefit programs, and leveling the playing field of [?25:09} promoting socio-economic mobility, that would also encompass financial regulations in the aftermath of the very grave financial crisis of 2008 that was, in good part, precipitated by recklessness by Wall Street.

In a speech earlier this week, BMW boss Harald Kruger said, “ We will incorporate all-electric, battery-powered mobility into our core brands, as we have already done successfully with our plug-in hybrid vehicles. “By using highly flexible architectures we can avoid duplicate investments in plant and equipment and will be able to adapt our range of electric and conventional vehicles to changing demand both quickly and efficiently.” Why? The two i cars aside, BMW has been pretty slow to the electric party compared to its peers, and the decision to cancel a highly anticipated i model only seems to make things worse. However, it’s actually quite a good idea for two reasons. Instead of creating incredible but expensive models like the i3 and the i8, BMW is instead using the prestige of its existing range – which already has decades of public awareness behind it.

Feeling less than impressed with virtual reality via phone, but don't want to drop the money on a fancy PC rig and high-end headset? HTC's newest device may be for you... if you can get one. The electronics giant has announced the HTC Link , a little brother to the high-end HTC Vive . The Link has built-in 1080 x 1200 displays and 90Hz refresh rate, features six-degrees-of-freedom tracking, allowing for greater mobility. While the HTC Link isn't tethered to a PC, it does require an HTC U11 smartphone for the needed computing power. The headset is a bridge, of sorts, between top-shelf experiences like the Vive and Oculus Rift and more affordable headsets that rely on a phone for both the display and processing power, like Google's Daydream View and Samsung Gear VR . Good luck getting one HTC hasn't yet announced a price for the Link, making it unclear if it's the cost-effective happy medium between mobile and PC VR that some might be hoping for.
