“When you see something like that happened a few days ago, you realize how important it is to win this fight, and we will win this fight,” he said. “We have to be able to increase defense spending when tensions are going up. And tensions are going up,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters on Thursday. Trump arrived in Brussels Wednesday following talks with the Pope Francis at the Vatican in Rome. Trump said on Twitter after the meeting he is “more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world.” Prior to Wednesday’s meeting with the pope, Trump spent several days touring the Middle East and meeting with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, as well as other leaders in the Muslim world. While speaking to dozens of Muslim leaders in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, he called for Muslim unity in the fight against terrorism After participating in the inauguration of a new NATO headquarters and a meeting of the alliance’s leaders, the president will return to Italy, specifically the island of Sicily, for the Group of Seven summit.

There's even a bit of a ducktail spoiler at the rear end. The entire rear design seems to show off its power and grace. This is the sporty grand touring design BMW needed after the departure of the 6 Series Coupe. This already looks like it could be a faithful successor to the stunning original 8 Series. We must remember that his is just a concept. However, from the spy photos we've seen, the final production car will keep a lot of the same design elements. For instance, we can see the ducktail at the back, the muscular rear flares and the long, low-sloping hood all from the spy shots. So we can tell that BMW has kept a lot of the concept's designs intact. Obviously, these concepts are caricatures of the real car, so take the massive grilles and squinty headlights with a grain of salt. But the proportions are the important bit and the look bang-on in these concept photos.

During a ceremony Thursday, Trump is expected to finally endorse Article 5, under which any NATO member agrees to come to the aid of an ally under attack.

She added that she planned to head to Manchester to play a show for the people there, although it sounds like that wont happen until next year. Of course Im going to perform for my Manchester fans, she said. They deserve it. Mendes and Minaj are the biggest names to publicly say they will not live their lives on terrorists terms. But others have implied as much with their actions. Celine Dions publicist said she has no plans to cancel her upcoming dates in Europe.

Yagi touring the English-speaking world to discuss his antenna at various radio engineering conferences, the antenna gradually became simply the Yagi antenna or the Yagi array. Ironically, thanks to inter-service rivalries and a silo mentality in Imperial Japan, it was only the capture of a British radar set during the Battle of Singapore in 1942 that introduced the homegrown invention to the Japanese military. The Japanese intelligence officers didn't even consider Yagi to be a Japanese name they supposed it was just a code word made up by the British. Parasites The chief characteristics of the Yagi-Uda antenna are high directionality and high gain. Given the fact that the length of each element needs to be close to some fraction of the wavelength of the signal, it's most practical for the higher frequencies, mostly above 30 MHz.

Sturridge turned defender Alex Wilkinson to beat goalkeeper Danny Vukovic in just the eighth minute. Ten minutes later Firmino dinked the ball into the path of Spaniard Alberto Moreno, who slammed home for 2-0. Fantastic footwork from Sturridge freed space for a cross that ricocheted off Firmino's thigh and into the net for Liverpool's third goal in the 39th minute. "I enjoyed it a lot. Surprisingly good football and all the goals were brilliant," Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said. "We love football and it is not easy after 30 hours of flying, but we still do it. "It has been a really long season and it is now over. We can start a holiday after my final press conference." The Liverpool touring party only arrived in Sydney on the morning of the match and was rapturously received by the pro-Reds Australian crowd. Liverpool legend Gerrard, 36, played in the first half along with 39-year-old ex-team-mate Carragher, while McManaman, now 45, made an appearance as a substitute in the second half.

We've already read quite a bit about the new 2018 F90-generation BMW M5 . Since the first prototype drives were released, we've been studying, analyzing and patiently awaiting the upcoming M5. However, we can read about it until our eyes bleed but without actually sitting in it, feeling it, hearing it or driving it, we won't have a real idea of what's it's like. The closest we can get until we're given test drives in it is video. Videos like this new one from Autocar can give us a very good idea of what the M5 is like to drive, at least as close as we're gonna get for awhile. In this new video, Matt Saunders from Autocar does the driver while BMW DTM Touring Car driver Timo Glock rides shotgun. It gives a good look at how easy the M5 is to drive quickly, how it sounds and we get to hear about it from Glock. As we already know, the new BMW M5 will pack a revised version of BMW's S63 4.

Dealer-fit exhausts, suspension and even departments like Jaguar’s SVO that modify whole cars, essentially do exactly what tuning firms and the aftermarket have been doing for years. But, with their sizable budgets, the OEs could have the influence over legislators to outlaw modifications that arent performed or completely controlled by themselves. This hasnt happened yet, but grouped together in the PAAA, the UK aftermarket has a better chance of combatting any potential attack should it arise. A seriously diminished or non-existent aftermarket in the UK would also see our motorsport industry suffer significantly. Douglas goes into detail: ‘Many of us do 80 or 90 per cent of our work in the tuning industry, but we also supply the racing industry. ‘At ITG we supply into Formula 1 teams, Le Mans, off-road racing, all GT classes, touring cars… we do all that.
