Okay, with an NCAP rating that would no doubt start with a minus and zero airbags, yeah, it might kill you in a crash. Yet because you see so much more of the road - thanks to narrow pillars and a slim-line dash that almost has your nose pressed against the windscreen - there’s a fair chance you might see what’s hurtling towards you early enough to avoid having the accident in the first place. Plus, it feels relatively small, despite being a large saloon, and this, combined with that sense of intimacy with your surroundings, makes it feel like a touring car racer for the road. Having owned an E39 M5 for a number of years, the biggest compliment I can pay the Lotus Carlton is that it feels like a slightly rawer version of that, which considering the decade that separates them, seems perfectly apposite. ‘Never meet your heroes’ they say. Well, I met mine, spent the weekend in it, and it was better than I could’ve ever expected. Now, if only someone could let me have Kylie’s number...

DublDom, a Beautiful and Modern Modular House GisMullr Feb 24, 2017 Modular houses, or prefabricated houses, are picking up momentum lately. We have been seen amazing modular houses designs. From small and minimal projects to bigger ambitious ones, there is certainly a modular house idea to fit your needs. To give you a taste of that we will show a beautiful and modern home in Pirogovo lake, Russia. The project was designed by BIO-architects . The house was designed for a couple that had lived in one of the architect's modular homes. They liked the experience and decided to try an upgraded version of their first modular house. The result is a nice and cozy cabin in the woods. The house counts with simple and affordable materials. Metal profile, barn board and glass, and it blends harmoniously with the natural environment. It seems like the cabin is totally in sync with its beautiful surroundings.

In El Paso, Texas, Carmen Ramos and her friends have developed a network to keep each other updated via text messages on where immigration checkpoints have been set up. She said she also is making certain everything she does is in order at all times. She checks her taillights before leaving the house to make sure they are working. She wont speed and keeps a close eye on her surroundings. “We are surprised that even a ticket can get us back to Mexico,” said the 41-year-old Ramos, who with her husband and three children left Ciudad Juarez because of drug violence and death threats in 2008 and entered the U.S. on tourist visas that have since expired. “We wouldnt have anywhere to return.” An undocumented Guatemalan migrant mother and her son have called an Austin, Texas, church home for more than a year. Hilda Ramirez says they were fleeing the danger of their country and were caught by immigration authorities as they illegally crossed the border at Texas in 2014.

Snøhetta takes vacationing in the woods to higher heights (pun intended) with an additional cabin to their Treehotel , a collection of seven guest suites nestled high up in the pine forest of Northern Sweden. Their latest addition, conveniently entitled The 7th Room , is a two-bedroom, 55-square-meter cabin that blurs the line between indoor and outdoor living. The cabin is located ten meters above ground and features large windows, a netted terrace (perfect stargazing location for hardcore campers who can brave the cold with just a sleeping bag), and a tree stretching through the cabin. You’ll find yourself doing a double take when you stand under the cabin as it disappears into its surroundings. That’s because the the bottom of the cabin is covered with a large black and white print of trees reaching into the sky. Designed and built like a traditional Nordic cabin, the interior of the cabin is clad with blond ash wood flooring and blond birch plywood walls to complement the dark, burnt wood exteriors.

On installation, you’re invited to scan your device and configure your app-locking settings. There’s nothing very novel about the idea of PIN-protecting selected apps, but Bitdefender offers some thoughtful features: you can choose to automatically disable app-locking when you’re connected to your home Wi-Fi, and optionally capture a photo of anyone who tries to guess your app-lock PIN. The anti-theft module similarly has a few stand-out features. You can locate and control your phone via SMS, so you can track it down even if it’s disconnected from the internet. You can silently call it and listen in to its surroundings, to help you discover where it might be. And if you’re wearing an Android Wear smartwatch, this will alert you when your phone drops out of range, so you’re less likely to lose it in the first place. Along with a privacy advisor that highlights apps with wide-ranging permissions, and a web security module, it adds up to a well-rounded package.

The company began shipping Here One pre-orders Feb. 21, and they'll be available via Amazon , Best Buy , and AT&T this spring. But these earbuds aren't perfect just yet. Here's what it's like to use them. Read more : Review: Apple's BeatsX are comfy wireless earbuds for iPhone owners With the earbuds in , I could use Doppler's app to raise or lower the volume of my environment via a slider, choose a noise filter that fits my current surroundings, or apply sound effects through a live mix option. I could also tap the earbud to pause my music or reset my noise filters. Toggling the volume slider down all the way quieted my surroundings by 22 decibels, which nicely suppressed office chatter. Cranking it up to its maximum setting, which boosted my environment six decibels louder than usual, gave me what felt like bionic hearing. Not only were voices from across the office more crisp, but usually subtle sounds like keyboard taps and passing footsteps were amplified, too.

Wealthy bookworms have a treat in store if they were willing to make the journey to St. Petersburg where one could be one of the world’s most expensive libraries opened. The exclusive interior of Book Capella was captured on Monday, with footage showing the painstakingly decorated furnishings, tapestries and stained glass. In such surroundings for a fee of 7,000 roubles (€113) for a single session you can read some of the more than 5,000 carefully selected volumes of Russian authors of 16th to the early 20th centuries. The high admission fee is justified according to the administration since all the items in the library are precious in their own right though not originals. Each volume is hand made using expensive paper and leather bindings with gold lettering and many are available for sale and in great demand from collectors. SOT Yuri Shestakov, CEO, Alfaret Publishing House (Russian): "We thought that a format of chapel would better suit these unique books, so we wanted a visitor to have a chance to work with the books in the atmosphere of seclusion, in the atmosphere of some sacramental communication with these great books.
