It looks like HTC is promoting one of its concept phones to the big time, as reports claim the phonemaker will release a new flagship phone with a unique control method this spring, called the HTC U. Previously codenamed 'HTC Ocean,' the HTC U's standout feature is a touch-sensitive frame, replacing standard buttons and volume rockers with contextual squeezing and sliding of the handset's sides, according to trusted leaker Evan Blass, via VentureBeat . The phone is planned to join HTC's recent lineup of other U-branded phones, to include the recently revealed HTC U Play and HTC U Ultra . This report lines up with another one of Blass' leaks from earlier this year, showing a video of the presumed HTC U and its innovative control scheme. The leak also matches with another batch of HTC-branded uncoverings from last year (also supplied by Blass) featuring then-named HTC Ocean and its "Sense Touch" capabilities, giving us a little more context to how the just-about-buttonless phone operates.

15, 2017. (AP/Damian Dovarganes) In the short term, unraveling competing claims to properly assign blame will be a complex process. Trump has repeatedly made it clear he will blame everything that goes wrong on Democrats, who he says “own Obamacare.” Democrats plan to blame all problems on the Trump team’s management of health care. The Republicansdisastrous repeal effort made the ACA marginally less unpopular, but its favorability rating is still below 50 percent. Democrats didnt win this recent fight; Republicans simply lost. In the long term, understanding that Obamacare failed to achieve many of its goals is essential to fixing our health care system. Even if Trump does sabotage Obamacare, merely replacing him with a better executive committed to properly implementing the law is not enough. That would restore a wasteful and complex welfare program, which has major holes millions are falling through.

Democratic Sen. Jon Tester (Mont.) said Tuesday that he could possibly vote for a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. Tester appeared on CNN with host Kate Bolduan, who asked Tester if he could work with President Donald Trump on repealing and replacing Obamacare. "Do you think you can work with this president on a health care bill, if the promise is still to repeal and replace Obamacare?" Bolduan asked. "I absolutely do, and I hope it happens sooner rather than later," Tester responded. Tester said Obamacare has had positive effects on the health care system but has also caused problems that need to be addressed. Bolduan sought clarification from Tester on his position. "If the bill says repeal' on it, are you going to be able to support it?" Bolduan asked. "Well, it depends what the replacement is," Tester said. "If the replacement increases access and affordability, you're darn right I'll be there.

“I tend to look for solutions for any product with a bad design,” he explains. “Take a car; a pretty dumb design.” He supports this statement by telling a story: “I experienced water damage to my car one day and was astonished to learn that replacing a car radio costs thousands of dollars because the whole system is integrated. And not only that”, he continues, “these components are placed inside a shell that could last a human lifetime, whereas the lifespan of an average car is only twenty years.” This line of thinking got him to experiment with his own car design resulting in the Lo Res car (pictured below) – a simplified, nearly abstract version of an iconic Lamborghini that is compact, not conform the rules of conventional car design and minimalist. The experimental car has arrived in Los Angeles where it is on display at a large hiphop music video production house.

In that case, it's best to use technical websites that have been localized into Chinese as a resource. For electronic parts the .com and .cn versions of the Mouser site are interchangeable. Mostly just the category names are translated but that can get you very close and is useful for working with Chinese engineers. You can send them the URL of the type of part you want, there is a picture and no confusion. They can do the same for English speakers but in reverse.

five years' life left which means five years they need to invest heavily in repairing and replacing them or the ultimate sanction is to close the road, and that is the last thing they want to do. You are saying this is down to underfunding but there are other issues involved that affect the quality of roads? They face all sorts of challenges over time, and increased volume of traffic and heavy traffic, and climate change, so all of those.

The new Leaf adopts a Micra-like face at the front, replacing the old car's ageing styling. Radical change is in store for the styling of Nissan’s EV, which gets a longer range and autonomous tech The 2018 Nissan Leaf has been spotted with radical styling changes over the current model, akin to the new Micra . Through the camouflage cladding, it’s possible to see the new Nissan family face at the front, with Juke -like V-shaped taillight clusters at the rear. The boot lid also takes a more conventional shape than the current car's, too. We already know that the new Leaf could have a range of up to 340 miles thanks to battery pack options, the largest of which could double the 30kWh lithium ion pack found in the highest-spec version of the current model. The current Leaf in 30kWh form has a claimed range of 155 miles. This could still be offered on the new model as a lower-spec car, as the company takes a Tesla-like approach to EVs, in offering a range of capacities; higher-range cars topping the Leaf lineup.
