“The fundamental disagreement here is basically over which kind of Reagan-style tax change that Trump is going to embrace,” said Jeffrey Birnbaum, a former journalist and author of a book on the epic 1986 tax reform fight. “Will it be 1986-style reform, which neither raised nor lowered the budget deficit or will it be 1981-style, which was just a reduction in rates and was eventually viewed by both Democrats and Republicans as too deep a cut. It’s clear Trump wants to echo Reagan but we dont know which version of Reagan it will be.” For the moment, Republicans on the Hill are trying to stress the areas where they agree with Trump, including a desire to lower and simplify both corporate and individual rates to spur what the party hopes will be much faster economic growth that creates millions of new jobs and lifts wages. But many are signaling that significant differences remain that could prove insurmountable.

Animatronics for movies is often about making something that works and is reliable in the short term. It doesn't have to be pretty, it doesn't have to last forever. [Corporate Sellout] shows us the minimalist approach to building animatronics with this pair of special eyes . These eyes move in both the pan and tilt. Usually, that means a gimbal style mount. Not in this case. The mechanical assembly consists of with popsicle sticks, ping-pong balls, film canisters and dental floss. The frame for the eyes is made of simple popsicle sticks hot glued together. The eyes themselves are simple ping-pong balls. Arduino powered servos control the movement. The servos are connected to dental floss in a cable arrangement known as a pull-pull system. As each servo moves, one side of the arm pulls on a cable, while the other provides enough slack for the ping-pong ball to move.

It seems that Land Rover is developing yet another vehicle for BMW to worry about. First, it was the new Discovery which will be a very serious BMW X5 contender when it finally makes its debut. Now, though, the British brand has another car for the Bavarians to fear the Range Rover Velar SVR. We've seen other Jaguar/Land Rover SVR products before, such as the Range Rover Sport SVR and Jaguar F-Type SVR . However, this new Velar SVR will likely be the most deadly to the BMW brand. The reason for that is that the Velar is more on-road oriented than any of its Ranger Rover siblings. While still highly capable off-road, the Velar is the stylish and sexy Range Rover, filled with tons of cabin tech and flashy looks. So it's the car that more BMW X6 M-style customers will be interested in. The Range Rover Velar SVR will get new aluminum weight-saving measures that will allow it to shave its weight down to around 1,800 kg (3,968 lbs).

BMW is clearly not done thinking about hydrogen . While the detractors for hydrogen fuel are insatiable, BMW remains steadfast in its belief that hydrogen will be a fuel for the future. We already know that BMW is working on hydrogen fuel cells while it also works on battery technology, so that it can hedge its bets on both fuels and be prepared for whichever becomes more mainstream. Some of its work with hydrogen has to do with its refueling stations, a project that the brand's Designworks subsidiary has been working on with Shell. The folks in Bavaria (or rather, California) seem to think that, despite what many say about hydrogen, it can be a low-carbon option for the future of the automobile, even if pure BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles) mainly take over. So BMW Designworks teamed up with shell to design a new style of hydrogen refueling with an all-new fuel station dispenser design.

So what exactly is the Street Rod XG750A? According to H-D product planner, Jeff Strunk, it's a bike built for customers. To figure out what direction to take the Street platform in, Harley literally polled their target audience. They said I live in the city, I need to get around every day, I need a bike that can handle that. Traffic conditions are taxing, I need to be able to maneuver,'” Jeff explains. “They also said I don't just stay in the city—when I have time, I get out on weekends and I want a bike that can do that as well. So give me a dynamic motorcycle, that has power, performance, style.'” The Rod' part of the name suggests a little hot-rodding, which is exactly what Harley have done here. They've taken the Revolution X 750 powerplant from the Street, and upgraded it to create a new High Output' version.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13T7D8pAzKU Carol from Cheapass Games writes, "In our continuing quest to bring back the very best classic Cheapass Games, we're creating a new boxed set of Button Men , our strategy dice combat game. This time around, the characters will appear on cards, rather than pin-back buttons, but since they're all 1950s era gangsters, the 'button men' name still works! The new format lets us provide 48 characters - and 30 high-quality polyhedral dice - in one affordable package. We'll also make the old-style pin-back buttons available as game accessories. Button Men won two Origins awards back when it was originally published in 1999, and it's one of our favorites."

And don't talk to us about buying pre-built rigs - what do you think we are, rich? Rage Factor 3/10 If there's one thing PCs lack it's interaction between several people in the same room. There's nothing quite like playing bowling together on a Sunday afternoon or flexing your dance moves to the sound of Beyonce. PC games may encourage human interaction in online gaming but there's a level of jealousy (perhaps not rage) that can be levered at our sociable console brethren. Check out our list of best PC games to play in the living room article if you're seeking a tasty slice of local multiplayer action. Rage Factor: 9/10 Everything's not all sweetness and nice in the world of PCs: trolls lurk everywhere and not least online. FPSs are fertile ground for them. They'll teabag you, diss your playing style, camp like it's going out of fashion and try to rile you until you rage quit.
