We would like to extend a thank-you to the Mullin Automotive Museum for allowing us to photograph and drive these exceptionally cared-for cars. What does “Franceconjure for you? Long bicycle races, the Louvre, baguettes, fries ? Chances are it doesnt bridge together the places in your brain that house cutting-edge technology and automobiles. That is, unless you’re familiar with Citroen. Called every nice and nasty synonym of quirky, the French carmaker has been praised and maligned for pushing mechanical and aesthetic boundaries for longer than most people can literally remember. Citroen has managed to occupy multiple worlds with their cars; that of the common farmer and of the most discerning aristocrat, and that of our present and of our future. That might induce some eye-rolling, but the company really was that avant-garde. Take the 2CV for example, of which millions were produced over more than 40 years; it is the perfect embodiment of practical technology for the everyman.

The Toronto Raptors already showed their belief that James' Cleveland Cavaliers are vulnerable by making what could be their pivotal move for Serge Ibaka . But the Celtics are in even better position with the strong possibility of having home-court advantage over the Cavs in the playoffs. Boston is just three games behind Cleveland for the best record in the East. Expect Joel Embiid to Power Through, Ben Simmons Not so Much Because you can count on Joel Embiid to bask in any opportunity with a spotlight, he was on hand in New Orleans despite his inability to play in the Rising Stars Challenge due to a left knee injury. With it now uncertain whether Ben Simmons will play this season because of a setback with his foot, it becomes a natural question for the Philadelphia 76ers whether they want to bother pushing Embiid. It'd be pretty discouraging under any circumstances for Embiid to get shut down againand it looks as if that will not be necessary, according to league sources.

From specialty shops in Rome to supermarkets around the world, lovers of Italian olive oil are in for some sticker shock this year, with prices due to jump by as much as 20 percent. The combination of bad weather and pests hit the harvest in Southern Europe, most of all in Italy, where production is halved from last fall. That's pushing up Italian wholesale prices by 64 percent as of mid-February compared with a year earlier, which translates to shelf price increases of 15 to 20 percent in Italy. In other countries, the ultimate price increases will depend on several factors — such as how much retailers take on the costs themselves and the change in currency values. The U.S., for example, is likely to see a more modest rise in price as a stronger dollar keeps a lid on the cost of imports. Italy's harvest was especially hard hit by the combination of early rains that knocked buds off the trees and the threat of an olive fly that forced an early harvest, further cutting yields.

It could cost Pershing Gold Corp (TSE:PGLC) (NASDAQ:PGLC) as little as US$12.2 mln in initial capital expense to get the Relief Canyon gold mine in Nevada into production, based on a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) completed in June 2016. Given that on current plans Relief Canyon is expected to produce 88,500 ounces of gold per year over a 5.8 year mine life, that makes for some interesting numbers in the financial modelling. Pershing is currently finalising a pre-feasibility study (PFS) that will nail down the economics with greater certainty. But, as it stands, if the company chooses to mine Relief Canyon itself, the pre-tax internal return could be a very healthy 98%. If an alternative option to use contract miners is pursued, then the IRR could be an even more impressive 125%, although the trade-off is that overall pre-tax net cash flow drops from US$247.

And it worked. Because schools here are now improving. The Better to Best programme helped schools with a variety of issues. Today, headteachers were at the launch of the new Viscount Nelson education network, a not-for-profit organisation which will now run the programme. The idea always was from Norfolk County Council, that within a period of time, they would stop pushing school improvement from the centre of the county council and that it would go back to the schools, and they would be leading it themselves.

Kim Kardashian , cannot keep her troubled hubby Kanye West under control – and it just might cost him his marriage! On the heels of a disastrous Yeezy Season 5 fashion show at New York Fashion Week, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the troubled rapper now wants to revive his Saint Pablo Tour, which was abruptly cancelled amid his breakdown late last year. PHOTOS: SPLITSVILLE? From NY To LA! Kim & Kanye Living Separate Lives Amid Divorce Rumors But West’s 36-year-old wife is not ready for her hubby to hit the road. “ Kim told Kanye to take a step back , but because he feels that he pulled off the fashion show, he is really pushing her to restart his tour where it left off,” a source close to the Kardashian clan said. “Everyone around Kanye, especially Kim, thinks that this is a very bad idea but he is not listening to anyone. It is just making the situation that much worse!” As Radar previously reported, after Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris on October 3, the father of North , 3, and Saint West , 1, suffered a meltdown at his trainer’s house in L.

As with all Sonos gear, you'd expect the Playbase to work as part of the company's networked multi-room speaker setups, providing music streaming as well as home cinema audio. It seems that, like the rest of the range, the speaker would be available in black and white color options, too. According to the B&H retail listing, a March launch at $699 can be expected. That converts to about 570, or AU$930. However, in the case of those UK prices, expect to see that retail much higher, should the leak bear fruit Brexit is pushing UK Sonos prices up across the board this month. The best cheap Sonos deals

The Lords have a very important job, not least with Brexit, whether Government is pushing something through with no proper mandate.

The evidence from McGahn’s time at the FEC, and his first few weeks at the White House, suggests that he will serve more as the latter. At the FEC, at least, he was, as one former senior official puts it, “a one-man wrecking crew.” McGahn’s preferred operating style at the FEC—working with loyalists, pushing a deregulatory agenda, and battling insubordinates and colleagues who disagreed with him—might foreshadow what he now could do in the White House, only with a much larger and more powerful platform. This scares critics of his FEC career, who argue that he can be as much of a bully as his new boss. “McGahn will embolden Trump,” says a former FEC official. “He is not going to be a truth teller. He’s going to be an enabler.” *** McGahn arrived at the FEC in July 2008, ironically in the middle of the presidential campaign of Republican Senator John McCain, a longtime champion of campaign finance reform.

They don't like it and produce nasty chemicals. You take those microbes from yo-yo dieting mice and put them in healthy mice, they will gain weight. So what's happening is, after you've lost your weight, you gain it at double the speed because you're microbes are pushing out chemicals that make that happen. I'm against yo-yo dieting. I'm not against people trying to lose weight, which I think is maybe some of the message here, but I'm against this crash, this big change in calories which I think we've got completely wrong.

Despite initially pushing back, Tyre writes that through inquiry teachers began to see that their students didnt understand things like how the conjunctions “but, because and so” work in sentences, and these gaps were preventing them from expressing complexity in writing. “I think what’s most counter-cultural, and not really in the knowledge base, is how to develop students at the level of the sentence and all the ramifications that has in terms of thinking and content,” Scharff said. She has recently published a paper in the journal Improving Schools about the New Dorp approach and how it compares to commonly held beliefs about writing instruction, as well as the existing literature on how to teach writing. “There’s a belief that you immerse kids in it and they kind of figure it out,” Scharff said. And some kids can, especially if they grow up in a language-rich environment without any of the common barriers found in public school classrooms, like learning English as a second language, special needs, trauma and poverty.
