Living next to the Nurburgring certainly seems like a dream to all of us currently residing in the US. The track where all BMWs are tested before being given the green light to enter production, is probably the most adored in the world. One of the reasons certainly has to do with Touristenfahrten days when anyone can get on the track and push his or her car to the limit. We saw some rather interesting combats take place on it during these tourist days' and we even saw buses being driven on the track on more than one occasion. Today though we're here for a different reason and not dealing with buses, vans or anything of the sort but instead we're taking a look at a duel between three hot hatches and a BMW M4 . As you already know, BMWs are quite popular on the ring, and the M4 is no exception. However, more and more hot hatches are also showing up on the Ring lately, especially since a couple of manufacturers have actually started a proper FWD hot hatch competition on the Green Hell, to claim the title of the fastest FWD car in the world.

Some had called for Trump to respond to the attack earlier, including former CBS broadcaster Dan Rather and U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat from Oregon. You must condemn this violent act and encourage Americans to stand together against hatred, Blumenauer wrote in a letter to the president. The mother of one of the targets of the rant said she is overwhelmed with gratitude and sadness for the strangers who were stabbed to death when they came to the defense of her daughter, 16-year-old Destinee Mangum. Dyjuana Hudson posted a photo on her Facebook page Saturday of Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, saying: Thank you thank you thank you. ... You will always be our hero. ... I'm soooooo sorry this happened. On Sunday, Hudson posted a video with her daughter saying they were traumatized by the event. Mangum told news station KPTV that she and her 17-year-old friend were riding the train when Christian started yelling at them.

By Darius Shahtahmasebi For uninformed members of the public, news that the Filipino government is currently battling an ISIS-linked insurgency may come as a total shock. From the Independent : “A group of heavily-armed militants from a group linked to Isis have reportedly stormed a city in the Philippines and engaged in firefights with the national army. ” According to Reuters , Manila has mobilized attack helicopters and special police forces to drive these militants from the streets of Marawi City, which is located on Mindanao Island. These developments have been so rapid that President Rodrigo Duterte was forced to cut his recent trip to Russia short so he could return to the country and declare martial law in the area . It’s almost as if this ISIS-linked threat came out of nowhere and has completely caught the country by surprise. But did it? Approximately ten months ago, Duterte himself gave a speech in Manila in which he warned that ISIS followers, posing as missionaries, have already started radicalizing locals in Mindanao.

KOLKATA: India's curbs on cattle slaughter is making international fashion houses worried. Brands such as Zara, Marks & Spencer, Prada, Hugo Boss and Armani, or their agents, have started contacting suppliers in India, enquiring whether they would be able to meet their commitments on supplying footwear, handbags, jackets, belts and other products. The suppliers, many of them running small scale units, fear the government move will cause a big hole in India's $13 billion-a-year leather industry, as a chunk of the business may shift to Bangladesh or they may have to spend more to import raw material. "An important agent from Spain, who sources finished leather for shoes for Zara, had called me last Friday enquiring whether I have enough stock for long-term commitment and how can I ensure supply in the backdrop of the recent government order," said Mohammad Zia Nafis, MD, Zia Hide Skin Agency.

We've all seen them: the dreaded boob lights , marring apartments and builder-grade homes everywhere with their unrepentant mediocrity. If you're a little bit handy you've probably replaced one, or thought about it, but then you probably ran into the same difficulty I did when I started looking for a fixture to replace the boobs in my own apartment: flush-mount fixtures can be really ugly. If the room in question doesn't have the head room for a beautiful chandelier with a two-foot drop, finding the right fixture can be a real challenge. Where are all the nice-looking flush-mount lights? Surely, they have to be out there...somewhere, so we decided to do a little hunting, and here's what we found. READ MORE »

30pm, we’re going to get the biggest TV moment of the campaign so far, when Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn go head to head (almost) in a live TVdebate”. They are debating, just not with each other. It’s a Sky/Channel 4 News election special, where the two leaders will be taking questions from the audience, moderated by Faisal Islam, and being interviewed by Jeremy Paxman. On Friday the BBC is hosting something similar when its Question Time election special goes out. #glumbucket pic.twitter.com/jwKL1VFlg7 I think it’s absolutely right that we suspended campaigning for a time after the Manchester attack and I think people have been careful to be respectful as they have started back into campaigning. I’m optimistic about what we can achieve for this country for the future but this is a crucial election and there is a very clear choice for people when they come to that poll on June 8.

Home demolition is one of Israel’s preferred methods of evicting Palestinians from land they want, usually to provide housing for Jewish settlements, in violation of international law . I want to tell just one story the unique, surreal and totally intolerable story of Ashraf and Islam Fawaqa and their four daughters Ritaj, 9; Rimas, 7; Saba, 4; and Aya, a newborn. On May 4, the Fawaqas took baby Aya for a newborn checkup. While at the clinic, they got a call from a neighbor that Israeli authorities had started to demolish their home in the Sur Baher neighborhood of Jerusalem. According to Ashraf, they had paid 25,000 shekels to delay the expected demolition. “Isnt that a particularly upsetting case?” I asked a friend. “All home demolitions are upsetting.” “I know. But when Ashraf rushed home and showed the demolition crew the Israeli judge’s order to pause the demolition, do you know what they did? They noted the judge’s name, left the site, and returned one hour later with a new demolition order from the same judge.
