It’s also possible to experiment with different interior and exterior colors and a variety of wheel rims. “We know that our customers are busy people and that we need to fit into their lives,” commented Andrea Castronovo, BMW Group Vice President, Sales Strategy and Future Retail. “With the BMW i Visualizer now available on Google Play, we are delighted that customers can now explore our products in a truly interactive and fun way, whenever and wherever it suits them. Our vehicles are emotional products and to get that emotional feeling, you really need to experience them,” he continued. Andrea Castronovo believes that in situations where the desired product isnt available on the spot, this visualization is the next best thing. The quality of the images created is certainly extremely realistic. “During our pilot, people had great fun exploring the car, even ducking down their heads as if there really were a roof there,” Castronovo said.

RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Meghan Markle has no intention of putting the brakes on her acting career once she and Prince Harry are engaged — and that suits him just fine! “Harry loves America and is totally open to dividing his time between Canada, L.A. and London once he and Meghan are officially man and wife,” an insider told Radar of the prince, 32, and his Suits actress girlfriend. “It’s a logical step for the Royals, too, because he’ll be able to up their reputation abroad while still fulfilling duties back at home and overseas, of course,” added the source. PHOTOS: Jules Wainstein Busted Drinking After Ex Accuses Her Of Substance Abuse Issues As Radar reported , Markle was recently caught wearing a ring with an “H” on it while she was out shopping for flowers in London.

That's a lot longer than any previous movie from the stable, in fact the closest running time is a brief 99 minutes from 1997's Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie. Hoo boy, make of that what you will. Here's that new trailer from last week we mentioned above. If you missed it, have a look and see what you think... In the Ranger suits this time are Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G as Trini the Yellow Ranger, and Ludi Lin as Zack the Black Ranger. Alongside the Rangers in this poster is Elizabeth Banks, playing the dastardly Rita Repulsa. More as we have it. In the meantime, feel free to flick over to page 2 of our Power Rangers base for more images and some excellent toy details, along with all the other cool stuff we've found. Power Rangers movie release date Power Rangers is expected in British and American cinemas on Friday 24th March 2017.

Photo credit: Steve Rhodes / Flickr (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0) I had always been fascinated by the subject of white-collar crime. I detested the fact that the already wealthy and well positioned would cheat their employees, their customers, their shareholders to gain even more advantage. In 1975 I ordered up a cover story in New Times on the new “Boardroom Bandits.” The photo spread leading off the story showed myself and six other New Times staffers sitting around a table in suits with stockings over our heads. We ran a rogues gallery of those who had been sentenced to prison — those were the days — and tried to address the prickly issue of how to rein in future corruption. Harvard Law School’s Alan Dershowitz framed the basic problem: “We are really stuck between two models of irrationality. On the one hand it makes no sense at all to imprison white-collar criminals because they dont need walls around them.

The suspects are being tried in Ankara and face multiple life sentences. Dressed smartly in suits, they were led into the courthouse by paramilitary forces in front of television cameras surrounded by heavy security and a water cannon truck. The courtroom was packed with security forces including police with shields behind the suspects as the judge confirmed the identities of those on trial. The coup was blamed on Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, living in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, and his movement. Gulen strongly denies the charges. Turkey says the Gulen movement is a terrorist organisation and the suspects in Ankara also face charges of being a member of an armed terror group. The men went on trial after 47 suspects, mainly soldiers, appeared in court for the first time on Monday in the southern city of Mugla, accused of plotting to assassinate Erdogan.

“They want new themes that come out every season, and they really want to transform the face of the venue, and they are willing to spend whatever, unlimited. They want to outdo each other at the wedding,” she said. Many people vehemently oppose any effort to impose a tax on wedding expenses and say any effort to trim lavish Indian weddings has to be led by society itself. Sanjoy Pasricha, who is in the midst of hectic preparations for his daughter’s wedding to be held next month, has opted for a destination wedding in the beach resort of Goa. He points out that a marriage is a major event for an Indian family. Strongly opposing any government role in regulating wedding expenses he said, “It’s my decision how much I want to spend. It’s as good as saying that you will have to stop wearing suits and only wear trousers, or you should not wear silk saris, but only cotton saris.

By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment) | The interview that emerged on the internet of practicing Catholic Milo Yiannopoulos expressing approval of some instances of priest pedophilia with boys has perhaps ended his career as the most flamboyant voice of the neo-KKK in suits. But those remarks are hardly the most objectionable things Yiannopoulos has said; at least he seems to have been talking in part about his own experience. What is really monstrous is the lies he told, and which he was encouraged by his boss Steve Bannon to tell, about Hillary Clinton being involved in a pedophilia ring. Steve Bannon, now sitting on our National Security Council (and perhaps in control of which of its recommendations goes to Trump), hired Yiannopoulos as an editor at his alt-NeoNazi rag, Breitbart, and helped unleash him on the United States. Bannon's choice of proteges tells us everything we need to know about him and his agenda in the Trump White House.

In 2012, the British Film Institute ran a special season of classic sci-fi films from the Cold War era, entitled Kosmos: A Soviet Space Odyssey . More recently, a number of these films have appeared to watch online, legally and for free, which means that everyone can finally see these films as they were originally intended. As well as The Heavens Call, there's Planeta Bur - another film harshly re-edited under Corman's aegis. Released in America under the titles Voyage To The Prehistoric Planet and Voyage To The Planet Of The Prehistoric Women, their new sequences were overseen by Curtis Harrington and Peter Bogdanovich, respectively - further proof that even great writers and directors have to start somewhere. Full of shiny, metallic rockets and curvaceous space suits, these movies from behind the Iron Curtain may hail from a distant era, but they're steeped in a romanticism that is quietly infectious.

Such statistics, among a world full of hunger, incredulous food prices, and social unease, reveal the environmental, moral, and economical issues surrounding many of our normal' food practices. Waitrose, an upscale British grocer, takes the food waste problem very seriously. Its website states : We want all our food to be eaten whether that's by our customers, Partners (employees) or those in need. We work hard to predict how much food we will need; then we reduce prices as food nears its use by date. Our ambition is for all our shops and depots to have an arrangement in place with a local organisation, such as a charity or social enterprise, to donate food before it goes past its use by date. While our shops are able to find a solution that suits the needs of the local community, not all of them have an arrangement in place yet, so if you're interested in collecting from us, please contact the branch directly.

40 strains of microbes, viruses The life forms40 different strains of microbes and some viruses — are so weird that their nearest relatives are 10 percent different genetically. That makes their closest relative about as far away as humans are from mushrooms, Boston said. The Naica caves — an abandoned lead and zinc mine — are half a mile (800 meters) deep. Before drilling occurred by a mine company, the mines had been completely cut off from the outside world. Some were as vast as cathedrals, with crystals lining the iron walls. They were also so hot that scientists had to don cheap versions of space suits — to prevent contamination with outside life — and wore ice packs all over their bodies. Boston said the team could only work about 20 minutes at a time before ducking to a “cool” room that was about 100 degrees (38 Celsius). No surprise in extreme life NASA wouldnt allow Boston to share her work for outside review before Friday’s announcement, so scientists couldnt say much.
