Custom trends will come and go, but the art of the resto-mod will always have a place in the pantheon of motorcycle culture. And one of the finest exponents of the genre is Stefano Venier. Stefano's bikes always remain true to their original purpose—but they do it a little bit better, and with a lot more style. This thoughtfully upgraded Kawasaki KZ 1000 LTD runs true to the Venier form, replacing the fripperies of a typical early-80s cruiser with a sleek and timeless silhouette. The KZ1000 is called Giappone (‘Japan’) and was commissioned by Brett Seyler, a San Francisco-based mobile game developer with a passion for the more analog pleasures of riding. “The concept was to build a street legal motorcycle in the style of a vintage race bike,” Stefano tells us. “Giappone is the start of a new run of high performance motorcycles, with the next builds being a pair of Moto Guzzis based on the 1000 SP.

I think they kept it out of the world.” Bannon’s words should be seen in the light of every executive order currently signed, or before, Trump. The Muslim ban . The proposed ban on the Muslim Brotherhood . The removal of white nationalists from the counter-extremism programme, to instead focus solely on Islam . And that’s just in the first few weeks of office, all making for an Islamophobic perfect storm which will have disastrous consequences for the American Muslim community. Who else does Bannon have in his sights? But Bannon is not content with taking on the Muslim world. He also has his sights set on China. In a February 2016 interview that Bannon hosted with theologian Thomas D Williams (who runs Breitbart’s operation in Rome), Bannon said: “You have an expansionist Islam and you have an expansionist China. Right? They are motivated. They’re arrogant.

The concept's powerplant featured a micro-turbine generator, inspired by aviation technology, which drove a generator and charged the battery. Unlike many previous turbine powertrain systems, there was no direct electrical feed from the generator to the electric motors: the TREV system is purely a series hybrid range extender charger. Using the system, the battery pack was claimed to be charged to its maximum in 40 minutes. The GT96 was first presented in two forms at the 2016 Geneva motor show, with both based on a mid-engine electric hypercar design that features two seats and all-wheel drive. Design one: AT96Aviation Turbine’ was a track-focused model, with a turbine set-up that runs on a liquid fuel, such as aviation kerosene, diesel or gasoline. Design two: GT96Gas Turbine’ was designed to run on a gaseous fuel such as biogas and natural gas and is styled as a road-going hypercar.

In the last few days T he New York Times has run several opinion pieces from the Israeli or American Zionist point of view. We've seen none from Palestinians. Last Wednesday was a low point. Right alongside Tom Friedman urging Donald Trump to save the Jews from division over Israel, the Times ran a piece called, A Settler's View of Israel's Future , by Yishai Fleshler, international spokesperson for the illegal settler community in Hebron. The very-Jewish-centric New York Times last Wednesday The article included a bible lecture about why the two-state solution was dead: Judea and Samaria belong to the Jewish people. Our right to this land is derived from our history, religion, international decisions and defensive wars. But as for the fundamental question what are you going to do about all the Palestinians? Fleshler offered five ideas, all from Israeli Jews.

Gamers can either follow the campaign and command the UNSC faction through a series of battles, or play online with six-player traditional skirmish battles and base-controlling game modes. Halo Wars 2 brings with it a selection of new game modes and next generation graphics – but what do the critics think of the highly anticipated sequel? Gamespot says that Halo Wars 2 appears to be an "RTS game for Halo fans and a Halo game for RTS fans", but ultimately the "very light" experience "runs out of steam quickly". The cinematic cutscenes fail to develop the characters "in a meaningful way" and feel more like "eye-candy" than a means of pulling the player into the universe, adds the site. Nevertheless, the cutscenes are often "gorgeous" and feature characters that deliver their lines in a manner that luckily overlooks the "cheesy action movie lines".

The PRCS runs three large hospitals in Syria: Bissan in Homs, Yaffa Hospital in el-Mezzeh, Damascus, and Palestine Hospital in Yarmouk camp. Some of the smaller clinics they used to run in Nairab, Sbeineh, Khan Danoun and Douma were destroyed in the Syrian conflict. The PRCS is one of the few NGOs still operating inside the rebel-occupied part of Yarmouk camp. They run the only functioning, non-rebel medical facility inside the camp, the Palestine Hospital. “We only have two doctors and some volunteer workers left there. We lost two doctors and five staff members in this crisis – they were killed. The last one was a few months agoDiabMuhanna, an assistant pharmacist – he was shot outside the hospital,” says Shihabi. Access to medical care inside Yarmouk was further crippled when “about eight cars, six ambulances, were stolen (after rebels occupied the camp), they robbed our biggest storage facility for drugs and medical supplies.

"It runs the gamut of emotions for [Star-Lord], wanting to understand why his father wasnt around to quickly idolising him and ultimately learning the reality of the relationship and comparing the man who sired him to the man who raised him." The first movie certainly had plenty of daddy issues for both Peter Quill and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) to deal with. While the former ended up betraying his volatile father figure and reluctant collaborator Yondu (Michael Rooker) on a handful of occasions peppered throughout the story, the latter also chose to step out of her own adoptive father's shadow to choose a lighter path alongside the galaxy's newest gang of protectors. How Star-Lord's father will fit into the events of the second film in the franchise is only likely to be revealed when the film is released in April, however. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.

This seems like just the first new step for the growing company. Theyre inviting you to follow along if you can find a Snapbot on the map. Is it worth following back? Lets take a non-expiring view. Price and release date The first thing you should know about Spectacles is that they're hard to come by, launching in pop-up locations around the US. But that should change soon, according to Snaps IPO filing. An adorable-looking yellow Snapbot vending machine dispenses a limited number of glasses in one spot, so you have to get there extremely fast. They cost $129.99 (about 105, AU$169). The bot becomes a lot less adorable when it runs out of glasses and you then have to share an elevator with people, who were in line ahead of you, and are clutching multiple Spectacles in tennis ball-like plastic canisters (thankfully everyone is limited to two).
