We think it is going to shake up the market.” Although there has been no official confirmation of the powertrain, Polestar officials have previously indicated that they were looking to optimise the T8 hybrid system, which is available on all of the newgeneration Volvos based on the firm’s Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA). In the XC90 , the T8 combines a 314bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that is both supercharged and turbocharged for 295lb ft with an electric motor producing 81bhp and 177lb ft. By comparison, a BMW M5 has 552bhp and 501lb ft. Although the power and torque outputs are expected to rise for the Polestar models, Volvo engineers are also said to have focused on improving response and drivability while possibly sacrificing some of the standard car’s all-electric range of 24 miles. Having collaborated with Polestar since 1996, Volvo bought the tuning and motorsport company outright in July 2015 and last year recruited Volvo UK’s then managing director, Nick Connor, as its chief executive.

I'd like to know Ukip's position on that, which is a real local issue. It's absolutely clear. It's not absolutely clear at all. I was in a by-election with Paul Nuttall when he said he wanted to privatise the NHS. This is absolutely untrue. The most important thing is that my party, Ukip, has always stood on a platform of celebrating the NHS and believing it should be free at the point of delivery.

Furthering the running gag that Microsoft is slow to the draw and deficient in apps in regards to its smartphone platform, Minecraft: Pocket Edition is just now heading to Windows 10 Mobile . Though previously available on Windows Phone 8, Minecraft developer Mojang dropped support for Microsoft's older mobile OS back in October of last year. Minecraft: Pocket Edition coming to Windows 10 Mobile now means those who've upgraded will also finally catch up on major updates that they have missed out on since, including Achievements and support for Realms, add-ons, and texture packs. A Minecraft in every phone The ultra-popular brick building game coming to Windows 10 Mobile may as well just be a formality at this point, with the game already selling over 100 million copies and counting - with the handheld Pocket Edition and console ports outselling the PC original almost 2 to 1 .

"Come on, How can a women rape a man?" Maher has received criticism for providing Yiannopoulos, known as a right-wing provocateur, with a platform on his popular HBO show. Yiannopoulos, 32, lost a speaking role at the Conservative Political Action Conference, his job at Breitbart , and a book deal after a video surfaced of him making comments about pedophilia. In the video he appeared to condone sexual relations with boys as young as 13, which led CPAC to rescind its speaking invitation on Monday. Maher gave his thoughts on the matter in an interview with the New York Times . "What I think people saw was an emotionally needy Ann Coulter wannabe, trying to make a buck off of the left's propensity for outrage," he said. "And by the end of the weekend, by dinnertime Monday, he's dropped as a speaker at CPAC. Then he's dropped by Breitbart , and his book deal falls through.

This thought experiment eventually led to my brother building his own harmonograph. This was way back when the only internet we had was the Library, which was all the way across town and not convenient to pop in on a whim and fancy. This limited our access to information about the device, but eventually, after a couple of months, the project was complete. Getting the Swing of Things It quickly dawned on us that using gears wasn't the solution to this problem. A pendulum clock gave us some pointers about a plausible solution. Much later we learned that the earliest lateral' harmonographs consisted of single axis pendulums. One moved the pen laterally along the drawing platform, while the other moved the drawing platform perpendicular to the pen. Their limited movement resulted in Lissajous curves. If the pendulums were instead allowed more degrees of movement by fixing them to gimbals, more complex designs were possible.
