Combining old-world techniques and a modern toy, Japanese designer Kunikazu Hamanishi created the Leg-O coffee table. Each of the six legs were crafted using a lathe, an old woodworking tool that carves out sections of wood as it spins on its axis. The lathe notched out sections on each of the legs for the cross bars to snap onto, just like the LEGO clip pieces are designed to do. Rounding out the table are the two tops, one that overlaps the other creating a bi-level effect. The design is such that it could easily be expanded or customized into different configurations depending on your needs.

Despite being on the market for decades, carbon bicycles are still largely the domain of road riders. Open minded roadies often dabble with rougher riding styles, but the widening world of gravel grinders and ultralight touring hardly overlaps with traditional road bike design at all. Rob McKillip is one such free thinking racer, and his can-do response to a mid-race catastrophe led him to a bizarre and beautiful new ride. As Bike Rumor reports, McKillip was warming up for the Iowa State time trial championship when his bike, a Trek TTX Equinox suddenly broke. Rather than drop out of the race, he hopped on his backup - a fatbike - and completed the trial. The sadly damaged Equinox took a place of honor on his wall at home, until he noticed a few small makers beginning to test out carbon mountain and fatbikes. While doing a time trial on a fat tired ride sounds like hell to me, it must have lit a fire in McKillip.

“There is no certainty that any transaction will be agreed, nor as to the terms or timing of any transaction,” Vodafone said in a statement yesterday. According to analysts at Berenberg, a combined Vodafone-Idea group would have around 375 million subscribers and around a 36% market share, well ahead of Bharti with around 260 million subscribers. Berenberg also said the two firms would complement each other geographically, although some overlaps could require divestments to satisfy the regulators. Shares in Vodafone were up 2.7% at 199 pence by 1211 GMT. Shares in Idea Cellular were up 25%, its biggest gain on record, adding 71 billion rupees (RM4.6 billion) to its market value, while shares in Reliance Industries were up 2% and Bharti Airtel was up 7%. Idea said in a statement that the early talks between the two sides were based on equal rights between its owner, Aditya Birla Group, and Vodafone, which would get shares in Idea.

Theresa May delivered the speech to a very warm welcome from Republicans. She didn't get to bump into President Trump who'd just finished addressing them. But there was a standing ovation to welcome her and many interruptions with applause. The embassy might get honours all round for organising this at a time when longevity for senior officials is not a given. It's hugely important that this group of Republicans feels aligned with the UK, the government thinks. It's an access point for UK influence if President Trump veers off like a defective missile. Although some here are Trump supporters, some are Tea Party movement too, not natural allies on some areas for Tory governments, there's a strong pro-British feeling and there are policy overlaps, not least on free trade. Democrats often back President Trump's protectionism in congress. Many republicans are natural free traders.

But those negotiations did not fructify and PFC seemed far more attractive. For a company whose lion's share of revenues come from overseas, namely Germany, a breakthrough in US was become strategic. Like IAC, PFC too gives Sehgal that opportunity. MSSL has strong presence in passenger car wiring harness and had been eyeing the space for trucks. 90% of PKC revenues come from wiring harness and US alone contributes 60% of its topline where it dominates 62% market share amongst heavy trucks. The combination and synergies --- highly value accretive with minimum geographical and product overlaps -- couldn't have been better. “The reason for choosing this was obvious. It gives us opportunity to strengthen our business in wiring harness business and gives an opportunity to strengthen our North American presence,” explains G N Guaba, Chief Financial Officer at MSSL.

By Dick Guttman (excerpted from his memoir, Starflacker: Inside the Golden Age of Hollywood ) One question which is chatted up in Hollywood at this crucial waiting-for-the-Oscar-noms time of the year is "do the Golden Globes awarding influence, foretell or in any other way impact the names and films which will decorate the nominations list? (to be read out on January 24 this year) There are usually some overlaps and also some Hollywood Foreign Press Association winners who don't make the Oscar countdown at all. In 1980 one Globe awardee came in from such deep left field, an achievement not vaguely on the minds or tongues of Oscar electors, that there was instant scandal when it was announced. It drew such wrath that there was question if the award show would be telecast the following year. The recent passing of super-best-selling "Exorcist" and Oscar-winning screenwriter (for the adaptation of his book) William Peter Blatty brings that all-but-forgotten Golden Globe controversy to mind.

It overlaps points in the 2002 Declaration on the Conduct of the Parties in the South China Sea signed by countries throughout Southeast Asia, Roy said. Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines also claim all or parts of the sea. Vietnam may be keen to engage China now as U.S. President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office Friday, some experts say. Trump says he plans to withdraw from the Trans Pacific Partnership, or TPP, a 12-country trade zone led by the United States and including Vietnam. Vietnam’s economy depends heavily on exports, including to the United States and fellow TPP member Japan. The 12 countries signed the deal about a year ago. “I think Vietnam officially, given that the TPP now hasnt passed, there’s probably an incentive for Vietnam officially to engage with China,” said Alaistair Chan, an economist with Moody's Analytics in Australia.

For example, in medieval Spain, the Troubadour poets borrowed their lyrical beauty from Arabic . Arabic was the courtly language of southern Spain until the 15th century. Similarly, the 12th-century Palatine Chapel in Sicily was painted and gilded in the imperial style of the Fatimids , the rulers of Egypt between the 10th and 12th centuries. Such exchanges were common, thanks to the mobility of people as well as ideas. The point is that the story of Islam cannot be told without a deeper understanding of its cultural history: Even for early Muslim rulers , it was the Byzantine empire, the Roman empire and the Sassanian empire (the pre-Islamic Persian empire) that provided models. Such overlaps continued over the centuries, resulting in heterodox and cosmopolitan societies. The term "Middle East" - coined in the 19th century - fails to describe the complex social and cultural mosaic or religions that have existed in the region most closely associated with Islam - and continue to do so today.

The problem of ASR boils down to recognizing the phone sequence instead of a word. This requires building ML models for every phone. These models are called Monophone models. If you can do a good job of recognizing the phones, you have solved a big part of the ASR problem. Unfortunately, recognizing phones is not an easy task. If we plot the Fourier spectrum of a phone utterance, distinct peaks are visible, as can be seen in this plot : Formant Frequencies [5]. The peak frequencies F1 and F2 are key indicators of a phone. A scatter plot of the vowels with respect to F1 and F2 is shown here . As can be seen, the spread is large and very often overlaps with one another. Variation of dominant frequencies between vowels. No clear boundaries can be drawn to differentiate the vowels [3]. This overlap makes it hard for a ML algorithm to distinguish between phones.

Hanukkah, the annual Jewish Festival of Lights, overlaps with Christmas this year an occurrence that hasnt happened since 1978 and wont take place again until 2027. The Jewish winter holiday, which is also spelled Chanukah , begins this year on Dec. 24 and lasts eight days until Jan. 1, 2017. It is celebrated, in part, by the lighting of a menorah each night. Doing so represents the eight nights a small supply of oil miraculously lasted for a small group of Jewish people in 165 B.C. fighting to defeat the Greek army. Read More: This Is the True Lesson of Hanukkah Celebrants also often mark the occasion by eating fried foods like latkes, playing childrens games, including the dreidel, and exchanging gifts.

Both of these holidays were instituted under Greco-Roman rule, but 200 years apart from one another. In the Roman Empire, during roughly the first four or five centuries of the Christian era, R oman sources also associated December 25 with the date of the winter solstice, which is why it is often claimed that Christmas was consciously grafted onto the feast of the Roman sun god, says Philipp Nothaft, a fellow at All Souls College at the University of Oxford who is an expert on calendars. Popular as this explanation may be, it receives little to no support from the extant sources. Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter The reason why Hanukkah overlaps with Christmas only some of the time has to do with the difference between the Jewish calendar, which is lunar, and the Gregorian calendar used by most people in the West.

Coherent light is light of a single wavelength where all the crests and troughs (remember, light is a wave) are in lockstep with one another. Each crest precisely overlaps the next; each trough snugly fits within the other. Regular light contains a garden salad mix of every wavelength each vibrating out of stop, to its own drummer as it were. Because laser light is coherent, it stays focused over great distances, forming a narrow beam ideal for pointing. Laser light literally illuminates the air and anything in it. The intense beam scatters off air molecules, water vapor and dust in the air. In this photo, I spun the beam around the planet Jupiter on a humid, slightly foggy night. Dust and water vapor illuminated by the beam creates a mesmerizing sparkle effect you have to see to believe. Credit: Bob King Lasers are not only rated by power (milliwatts) but also the specific wavelength they emit.

Mr Hammond had a quote that his thinking is emerging amongst those people, among thoughtful politicians. Where that put David Davis and Liam Fox I am not sure. We have got to two tier debate, hard Brexit and soft Brexit, should we be in the single market or the customs union? And now we have this other debate, is it a fast Brexit or a slow Brexit? You have got a two-way debate with overlaps on each one.
