In 2016, Trudeau says his country is getting ready to resume diplomatic relations with Iran following a four-year break in ties. It seems that West’s commitment to JCPOA would be considered as the most important challenge facing Iran and the West during the Persian News Year. Meanwhile, the Western countries have pinned their eyes on the upcoming presidential election in Iran while thinking about the possibility of changing their negotiating partner in Iran in autumn of 2017.

Antony Ingram 23 Mar 2017 Fans of American metal will want to keep their eyes on the upcoming Mecum Auctions Indy 2017 sale in Indianapolis this May. There’s an example of just about every classic American car you can think of crossing the block at Indy - but perhaps the most special is lot R403: the first ever Ford Mustang hardtop. As far as people are aware, anyway - Ford doesnt always assign consecutive VIN plates to its cars and there’s a possibility this car wasnt the first hardtop actually built. But wearing number 5F07U100002, it’s certainly the second ever Mustang to be assigned a VIN, following a convertible variant that currently resides in The Henry Ford Museum. Car 00002 isnt the most desirable specification in Mustang terms, but that hardly matters given the context. Up front sits a 170 cubic-inch (2.8-litre) inline six-cylinder engine, attached to a three-speed manual transmission.

Early shots of Volvo’s upcoming small SUV suggest that its design will stay true to that of the Concept 40.1 The 2018 Volvo XC40 will get a new 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine when it is launched in 2018, Volvo CEO Håkan Samuelsson has hinted. Speaking to Autocar at the launch of the London Taxi Company's [LTC] new electric cab - which Volvo has helped develop - Samuelsson said the new three-pot engine would debut in an upcoming CMA-based model, ranking Volvo's Audi Q3 , Mercedes-Benz GLA and BMW X1 rival as top contender for the petrol unit. The engine is derived from Volvo’s existing four-cylinder 2.0-litre unit, and will be joined by both diesel and petrol engines, with and without turbocharging, in the XC40 line-up. The new three-cylinder engine will also be available in hybrid guise, producing 180bhp and mated to a 74bhp electric motor. This setup is similar to the one used in the LTC electric cab, but Samuelsson explained that the Volvo's main power source would be the three-cylinder, where as the cab uses the engine purely to charge its batteries.

Some of the following will almost certainly wind up falling short of our expectations, but there's also the fighting chance that one or two will turn out to be modern classics. So, to get things rolling, let's start with a disaster movie directed by the guy who produced Independence Day , and starring Gerard Butler... 35. Geostorm We can imagine that some might already be describing Dean Devlin’s upcoming sci-fi movie, Geostorm , as a guilty pleasure. We dont do guilty pleasures. This one simply looks a hoot. It’s a two plots for the price of one by the looks of it. There are climate controlling satellites on the one hand, that try and prevent storms that could destroy the planet. And in the midst of that, there’s a plot to assassinate the president. Gerard Butler, no stranger to films with such plots, leads a cast that also features Abbie Cornish, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia.

The Seat Ateca launched last year to critical acclaim Seat's new large SUV will be based on the Skoda Kodiaq; will sit alongside Ateca and the upcoming Arona in the brand's SUV line-up Seat has confirmed it will add a large SUV to its range in 2018, a new model that will further push the Spanish nameplate up-market. Based on the Skoda Kodiaq , the new Seat will have its own sheet-metal and unique interior with both five-seat and seven-seat layouts to attack a market segment above the new Ateca five-seater. Sized from around 4.7m-long, the new Seat SUV is relatively compact for a 5+2 seater – a characteristic that it shares with its platform twin, the Skoda Kodiaq. If Seat’s new SUV stays true to the satisfying dynamic characteristics of the Ateca , it could set new standards of agility for a seven-seat crossover. Based on the scalable MQB platform, the Seat SUV will also be powered by a range of VW group engines.

It was difficult to appreciate the claimed 120Hz visuals because of this. The good news is that this is an incredibly fast beast with an i7-6820HK Skylake inside. Its a CPU which runs at a faster clock speed (by 0.1GHz) than a 6700HQ which is in the Gigabyte P37X and HP Omen 17. It also has an unlocked multiplier, which means it can be overclocked within Windows using Aorus Command & Control software up to a whopping 4.0GHz. It is, however, looking a little long in the tooth. It was released back in 2015 and with the newest Kaby Lakes just have been released this may not be as future proof as other upcoming setups. Our test machine came with a gamer friendly amount of RAM, 16GB of DDR4 2400, and its upgradable to a maximum of 64GB. Unfortunately, the base is attached using speciality Torx screws so youll need to buy a special screwdriver if youre thinking of upgrading to that magical 64GB.

SHAH ALAM: Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said his party is still talking to PAS daily despite the latter's seeming preparation to cut ties with the PKR. The PKR deputy president said talk by certain sections in PAS to cut ties with PKR is not final as the Muktamar, scheduled from April 27 to May 1 in Alor Star, had not decided on it. "Every day, we still talk," he said after attending a function at the Shah Alam convention centre here. Azmin, who is Selangor Mentri Besar, posted "Ada Tok Lebai nak tawan Selangor. Kawasan sendiri pun kalah tersungkur." (There's a person in skullcap wishing to conquer Selangor, but got thrashed in his own territory.) on Twitter today. This drew flak from PAS grassroots in Selangor, with some tabling motions to cut ties with PKR at PAS's upcoming Muktamar while most threatened to withdraw support for PKR in Selangor.

Some speculate that Medicaid cuts could re-emerge as part of the debt ceiling fight later this year, or get absorbed into the upcoming debate on extending the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which must be re-authorized. But those measures are both down the road, and it’s not at all clear that either side would have the stomach to add Medicaid to the mix. But if the bill does go through, it will reverberate, in politics and in millions of American households, including those with disabled or elderly family members. “The changes being discussed to Medicaid don't get as much attention as Obamacare repeal and replace but they are more important,” said Drew Altman, president and CEO of the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health care think tank. “Our polling shows that Medicaid cuts are not popular with the American people, and the $800 billion in federal Medicaid spending cuts House Republicans are planning will put 28 Republican governors running for reelection in 2018 on the hot seat in their states.

IRNAOman on Wednesday cautioned Jordanian government against assumption of an anti-Iranian approach by the Arab League in the upcoming summit meeting of the League due to be held in Amman on March 29, 2017. In their message the high-ranking Omani officials have warned against Arab League’s anti-Iranian agenda, threatening to decrease their level of participation in the League should the final statement tend to cause problems and create constraints, according to a report by Raialyoum news website. The message did not elaborate on the notions of causing problems and creating constraints, though informed sources tend to argue that they are referring to Saudi Arabia’s extremist stance towards Iran. Through the message, Muscat is going to warn Jordan against issuing any final statement by the Arab League summit and trading terrorism support allegations against Iran or calling on other countries to cut diplomatic relations with Tehran, said diplomatic sources.

The government has slapped criminal charges on senior monks and continues financial investigations. “The Dhammakaya movement is now in a process of decay,” Mano said. “No more can they conduct their activity in the same way they did before. No big ceremonies.” The government wants Dhammajayo defrocked, but only the Sangha Council can do that. Even if it does so, resolving the case could take years if it is appealed. Some observers predict the junta will confiscate Dhammakaya assets by pursuing legal charges against the temple’s foundation, which holds much of its property. Elections are scheduled in 2018, and some believe the junta is racing to cement its allies in key positions before it must hand the reins to a civilian party. The extent to which they succeed could determine Thailand’s delicate balance of power in upcoming years.

"The rain cycles are so hectic ... so this is kind of opening the tap whenever there's no water coming from the sky," he said. Green water Funes expects an upcoming randomized control trial on water harvesting projects to show that increased production leads to healthier, more educated communities that are better prepared for climate change and less likely to lose people to "an American dream up north." Rainwater harvesting projects are enabling small-scale farmers to branch out from their traditional maize and beans to grow fruit and vegetables they can sell, according to the Secretariat of Agriculture and Livestock (SAG) in Honduras. It is working with U.S. development agency USAID on the scheme, and taking technical advice on reservoir building from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
