Image 11 of 32 Image 11 of 32 The chassis, meanwhile, is simply sublime. The quality of the damping is such that the car is both tightly tied down to the road surface and composed over bumps, potholes and ridges, meaning the tyres stay firmly pressed into the tarmac at all times. Those Cup 2 tyres, incidentally, find enormous grip on a dry road. With helper springs at the rear axle the car now finds so much grip and traction that it seems to be all but impossible to unstick the rear tyres coming out of a bend. Even in the lower gears the two fat tyres simply dig in and fire the car down the road. Whereas certain sports cars can be technically very capable on the road but somehow quite distant and uninvolving, the new 911 GT3 is both spectacularly competent and enormously rewarding to drive. Much of that can be attributed to a quite brilliant engine, which pulls hard and insistently from low down before lighting up in the mid-range and exploding across the final 2000rpm.

1 pick, I selected The Club for reasons that will become clear momentarily. They will be tag team champions, while #DIY as well as Enzo Amore and Big Cass will present the greatest challenge. The Usos will be the cornerstones of the division, as they are in WWE. The tandem of Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins, though they have yet to debut on television, will bring the energy and raw ability to my show that has been on display at NXT live events across the country. Dilbert: I looked for youth and potential when building the tag team division. American Alpha has only scratched the surface of what it can do. The Authors of Pain are raw but could develop into a great powerhouse team. Plus, Breezango, the most underutilized duo on any of the brands, could become a unique, entertaining act if given the proper spotlight. The New Day's antics will add fun to the mix.

The SteelSeries Nimbus resembles a console gamepad that uses Sonys DualShock layout. Importantly, it feels like a decent modern console gamepad,unlike many other MFi controllers. Set-up is straightforward Bluetooth pairing typically takes only a few seconds. Its feasible to use one Nimbus with several iOS/tvOS devices, and even with Macs, although you wont find much on macOS to use with one ( OpenEmu works, though). Design The unit feels solid and good in the hand. Its comfortable, doesnt creak and crack, and the matte surface looks pleasant. Its a world away from shiny plastic MFi controller monstrosities weve seen elsewhere. Across the top, a red LED strip indicates when the Nimbus is charging. When you first turn it on, the light pleasingly zips back and forth, like the controllers auditioning for the part of KITT in Knight Rider.

Gamevice is designed to turn your iPhone into a handheld console with proper controls. Rather than skidding your fingers across a glass surface, or waggling your phone around to steer a car, you get a D-pad, buttons, analogue sticks, and triggers. Set-up is simple: plug your iPhone into the Gamevices Lightning port, and shove the other end into the other half of the Gamevice. If youre using a non-Plus iPhone, a slider tightens the back of the controller to keep everything fairly snug. The end result looks a little like a PS Vita. Design The unit is light, weighing about the same as an iPhone 7, and theres no battery the Gamevice draws power from your iPhone, reportedly at about the same rate as a pair of headphones. You do, however, get a pass-through Lightning port, for when your iPhones low on juice, and a headphone port, which will send some iPhone 7/7 Plus owners into rapture.

If your local Porsche dealer hasnt already invited you to buy a new GT3, you wont be getting your hands on one without paying way over the list price for a lightly used ‘pre-ownedcar. That aside, the new GT3 is a high watermark for Porsche Motorsport cars. The steering, for example, is incredibly precise, with good feedback through the wheel rim. That’s despite it being electrically assisted, rather than the more communicative (but now old-fashioned) hydraulic set-up. Being such a high-performance sports car with track-honed suspension, the GT3 does ride stiffly around town and on slow roads, but that improves markedly at higher speeds. In fact, the chassis is so well judged from a handling standpoint that it’s almost impossible to criticise. It smothers bumps and potholes in the road surface while keeping the body under tight control. The sticky tyres press firmly into the tarmac, giving unparalleled grip.

A specific line-item mentioning Trump’s personal security needs ultimately didnt appear in the request sent last month to Capitol Hill, leaving budget watchers to predict some of the money will surface either in the next iteration of a continuing resolution or perhaps later this summer should the Homeland Security Department need to spend more money than it is authorized to spend. “Congress is going to have to come up with a big number that they’re not anticipating to cover all these costs,” said Chris Cummiskey, the former Obama-era acting undersecretary for management at the Department of Homeland Security. The costs for protecting the Trump family during their international travel also remains a sore spot. CBS reported earlier this month that the Secret Service’s international travel costs connected to protecting Eric and Donald Trump Jr.

Contrary to popular belief, says John Amos, president and founder of Skytruth, satellite and radar imagery simply doesnt exist for everywhere on Earth at all times. Even if it did, the organizations small team wouldnt be able to keep up with the thousands of accidents that occur every year. Instead, the company has developed a formula that acts as a second opinion to the self-reporting of polluting companies. Any time an accident occurs, oil companies are required to report an estimate of the aerial dimensions of the spill. Because reporting on total volume spilled is, shall we says, inconsistent, Skytruth comes up with its own volume estimate. First, it assumes that 100% of the reported area is covered in oilin other words, there are no holes in surface coverage inside the spill zone. Second, it assumes that any spill observable from space is at least one micron (one thousandth of a millimeter) thick.
