Actions on Google is the name for third-party services on Google Assistant, which was opened up to developers back in December . There is no shortage of Actions available, but I have yet to find one that I would actually use more than once. Google wants developers to create compelling features for Assistant, so the company has started a competition with various monetary and physical rewards. There are quite a few prize categories, ranging from 'Best app by students' to 'Best life hack.' Google will chose three overall winners, with first place winning tickets to Google I/O 2018, $10,000, and a walk-through of Google's campus.

More impressively is how planted and stable the car felt at speed. The standard Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 tyres offer tremendous grip on a dry surface, but by their soft nature also help to manage the overall comfort and compliant nature of the ride. The BMW M4 CS will run about $125,000 in Europe (converted from €116,900). It’s unclear how many CS model cars will be built, but BMW says production will run from 2017 to 2019.

Pittsburgh Penguins star center Sidney Crosby has played a key role in the team's success this season, collecting 89 points during the regular season and another 20 through 18 playoff games. Crosby's offensive abilities earned him the goals title this season, outpacing the closest competition of Nikita Kucherov and Auston Matthews (40 each) by four goals. Should Sid the Kid and the Penguins also take home the Stanley Cup, he would be the first player to do both in the same season since Wayne Gretzky completed the feat in 1986-87, per Sportsnet Stats . Since he's entered the league as the top overall selection in 2005, the phenom has accumulated 1,027 points in the regular season and another 157 over 142 postseason contests. That total would be impressive for a player who played every game over that span, but Crosby has been sidelined for significant portions of multiple seasons during his prime due to head injuries.

The rendering here was inspired quite a lot by the Ferrari GTC4Lusso with the rear quarter looking extremely similar. Then again, all shooting brakes have the same overall design round the back as that's what defines them in the first place. Initially brought out as a concept in World War II era, the shooting brake body never quite took off, as the main purpose it was created for to help hunters carry their game and weapons meant it was addressing a small niche in the first place. More shooting brake models were brought out in the 60s and 70s, some more popular than others. Today, Mercedes-Benz is probably selling the most cars in this guise, with the CLS and CLA models being the most popular examples, even though they are quite far off from the original concept that came with only two doors. An 8 Series Shooting Brake would give the CLS version a run for its money but in these troubling times, BMW will most likely choose not to invest into making a model that caters to such a small niche.

The BMW 8 Series is no longer a rumor, or a silent whisper among enthusiasts wishing for a revival of the badge. No, the BMW 8 Series is coming and the concept BMW unveiled at this year's Villa d'Este speaks of big grills, wide air intakes and powerful curves all around its body. Sure, the production model probably will be a bit more toned down but overall, we can expect the general lines to be kept and that's great news. The sad part is that the 6 Series range will no longer be available as we know it. BMW actually has done this before, when the original 6 Series and 8 Series were out, more than 30 years ago. As a matter of fact, when the first 8 Series was introduced, the 6 Series range as a whole was put on the back-burner, probably in order to avoid cannibalizing sales. It will be the same story in the 21st century and that means the beautiful 6 Series Gran Coupe will be no longer.

I know some people who still hasnt done this switch in their careers and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. As long as you love what you do, nothing else matters. One thing to remember though is there is no ultimate goal in our field, everything depends on what do you wanna do with your career. Image by Ruthson Zimmerman What is UI and UX? Here we go! In the simplest explanation, UI is about what you see and UX is all about what you feel as a user and user experience. This role means that you’re juggling between both what’s visual and the overall experience. It’s one big giant role to be in and some companies do in fact mixed it all up (between UI and UX) which is not always right. From creating your visual path for each screen, page or elements and by the same time following what has been done on the UX side of things. On top of that, you’ll be working at creating style guides and ensuring a design language across the board.

At the end of the “Little Ice Age,” in 1859, the Sunburped,” spewing out two coronal mass ejections (CMEs), accompanied by solar flares and other solar activity, that hit Earth. This become known as the Carrington Event (named after British astronomer Richard Carrington who observed a solar flare that preceded the main event). At the time unusual auroras were seen around the world due to the solar outburst, and the primitive mid-nineteenth century telegraph lines were overloaded by the incoming charged particles and accompanying geomagnetic storm. Overall, in 1859 the solar outburst caused little more than minor damage and a bit of an inconvenience for those who utilised the telegraph lines. If a Carrington-level event were to hit today, the story would be much different! A Carrington-level event could knock out modern electronics around the globe, bringing computer systems, electrical grids, the Internet, communications, satellites, and much more to a standstill.

And since that time, lending has tightened up even more. The following comes from Zero HedgeAccording to the latest Fed data [7] , the all-important C&I loan growth contraction has not only continued, but over the past two months, another 50% has been chopped off , and what in early March was a 4.0% annual growth [4] is now barely positive, down to just 2.0%, and set to turn negative in just a few weeks. This was the lowest growth rate since May 2011, right around the time the Fed was about to launch QE2. At the same time, total loan growth has likewise continued to decline, and as of the second week of May was down to 3.8%, the weakest overall loan creation in three years . This is exactly what we would expect to see if we were entering a new recession. Neil Howe, one of the authors of The Fourth Turning , recently warned that “winter is coming” and I have to admit that I agree with him.

" That's correct, but it's not the most helpful or detailed answer.

The server appeared to be allocated in the UK, and was registered to UKHost4U, just as the company stated (the firm doesnt use other people's hardware). Connections times from the UK were excellent, plus connections from the US were also better than usual, and the server had above average speeds overall. Final verdict UKHost4U has a speedy network, but support is weak, and the confusing, contradictory website doesn't inspire confidence. The best web hosting services of 2017
