If you asked me when I was 10 years old if I would be here nowthat I would be here I would have said, 'You're absolutely nuts,' Kobe Bryant admits, sitting down at Deadline's Tribeca Studio to discuss his animated short film, Dear Basketball . But that's the beautiful thing about life, isn't it? One of the greatest basketball players of all time who had an illustrious 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, Bryant decided to announce his retirement in November...

If you haven't been following The Drive's $2,000 BMW E30 325is project , here's a quick recap: The Drive decided to buy an old, beaten down BMW E30 325is for $2,000 and turn it into a race car. But not just any race car, it was to go rally racing in RallyCross and the be completely converted over to do some endurance racing in ChumpCar. All within the span of a couple of months. Oh, and in between, it did some rock crawling in Colorado with Matt Farah. So not only did the old, beaten up E30 go racing, but two completely different kinds of racing which require two completely different setups while also doing some rock crawling in between. That's pretty impressive. We left off after they had taken it to RallyCross, where it suffered a serious beating and a cracked oil pan, so it needed some repairs. They were able to repair it but it took a serious all-nighter and they needed to find a replacement brake caliper the morning they had to leave to drive the E30 to Alabama for ChumpCar.

Anyone who is into photography knows that the lenses are the most expensive part in the bag. The larger the aperture or f-stop of the lens, the more light is coming in which is better for dimly lit scenes. Consequently, the price of the larger glass can burn a hole in one's pocket. [Anthony Kouttron] decided that he could use a Rodenstock TV-Heligon lens he found online and adapt it for his micro four-third's camera . The lens came attached to a Fischer Imaging TV camera which was supposedly part of the Fluorotron line of systems used for X-ray imaging. We find [Anthony's] exploration of the equipment, and discovery of previous hacks by unknown owners, to be entertaining. Even before he begins machining the parts for his own purposes, this is an epic teardown he's published. Since the lens was originally mounted on a brass part, [Anthony Kouttron] knew that it would be rather easy to machine the custom part to fit standardized lens adapters.

Some of the defiant' and non-compliant' children were then taken away to have surgery and had tubes put in their stomachs so that they would still receive the medication. Liam interviewed one of the foster parents about what was going on: I asked Mona how the children at ICC tolerate so many medications. She said a lot of them don't. The ones that can't are drugged through a tube, she said. There's a tube down their throat? I asked. No she answered, matter-of-factly, they take them in for surgery. A surgeon puts a hole in them? Where? In their stomachs, she said. If a child refuses drugs too many times, they take them away for the operation. I've seen it happen to children who refuse the medication. Mona, who knew that the medications were making her foster kids worse, decided to stop them and started instead, taking the children to a naturopath, where they both became a lot stronger and healthier.

As former Democratic Senator Mike Gravel has explained , “Something is monitoring the planet, and they are monitoring it very cautiously, because we are a very warlike planet.” This isnt the first time someone has speculated that we are not alone in the cosmos and that ETs are watching over us and have even intervened during times of war. You can read more about UFO/ET military intervention here . Many high-ranking military whistleblowers have testified to this. “In one of the cases during the cold war, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe. The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided that with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years.

Now and again I take it up the road to remind myself it’s still terrible to drive. I dont use it enough so am contemplating selling it. Then there is the Renault Dodge 50 Series. It’s a horsebox and therefore would be able to accommodate an elephant should I ever decide to remove it from the room it inhabits. I bought the Dodge because I’m custodian of a girl who wanted to compete at dressage. She’s since decided that doing her homework might be a better idea so it, too, is surplus to requirements. Unlike the Beetle, the Dodge is actually for sale right now, if I get around to advertising it. Despite appearances, it’s remarkably roadworthy, as it darned well ought to be given I’ve just paid for an entire new back axle just because the rear brakes were underperforming by 2% on one side. The 50 Series has a bit of a cult following, so should sell.

Mandatory Credit: Union Populaire Republicaine French presidential candidate Francois Asselineau broke with his competitors, except his Socialist rival Benoit Hamon, and went ahead with a scheduled campaign rally in Strasbourg on Friday evening, despite Thursday's shooting in Paris which left one police officer dead. SOT, Francois Asselineau, French presidential candidate (French): “So today, like some of the other candidates, I decided to cancel some events in the morning and early afternoon to shake hands in Parisian markets. On the other hand I decided to maintain this rally in Strasbourg because it is important and we had already committed with the organisation and because I absolutely wanted to come to Strasbourg to talk to people from the city, from Alsace and beyond to the Germans to bring a message of peace. So I decided to maintain this even if the others cancelled everything.

The ANC has decided not to respond to the UDM's constitutional court application, to force the speaker of parliament to allow a secret ballot in the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma The ANC is among the 14 respondents cited in the application, including other opposition parties in parliament. The UDM argues that because of the alleged intimidation of ANC MPs, the constitutional court should hand down an order in its favour. At least 3 other parties including the EFF have filed in support of the application. Meanwhile...The Speaker of Parliament Baleka Mbete has also filed heads of argument to the Constitutional Court in the case on voting on a motion of no confidence by secret ballot in which she insists that the rules of Parliament do not make provision for it. Mbete says while she was personally not opposed to the notion of a secret ballot - but the legislature has considered the issue in the past and elected not to provide for it.

It seems ideal he took this idea and converted it into a modular, cubic shaped planter system with identifiable similarities to LEGO or Minecraft, essentially turning home gardening into a game where the chances of winning are greatly improved. When my daughter was born I decided that if it was impossible for us to leave the city, I must bring the beauty of nature to my daughter. So began a 3-year journey to create the best indoor garden I could design. One day I noticed my daughter playing with her favorite toys – “building blocks.” In that moment I realized that indoor gardens could be so much more than just a bunch of pots. By allowing you to stack and expand your pots everyone can create a unique garden just like my daughters unique building creations. The Lego-like design has the added benefit of fitting into smaller spaces like our apartment.

The Mummy reboot cast Obviously, the most eye-catching thing about the new Mummy movie is that Tom Cruise is the lead.

Band B covers moderate speeding, such as 41-50mph in a 30mph zone, or 91-100mph in a 70mph limit, while Band A covers 31-40mph in a 30mph zone and 71-90mph in a 70mph zone. Band A warrants three points and a fine of 25-75% of the driver’s weekly income, while Band B gives a 75-125% fine and either a seven to 28-day disqualification or between four and six penalty points. Band C gives the heaviest fine125-175% of a driver’s weekly income - and a disqualification for between seven and 56 days or six points. For even higher speeds, a longer disqualification may be given. A spokesman for the sentencing council clarified that fines are capped at £2500 for offences on motorways and at £1000 elsewhere, however. The starting point for each fine is 25% higher than the lower-range figure and is decided by the environment in which the driver was speeding, other road users around, the driver’s driving standard when travelling at speed and other factors.

If you’ve ever gotten chills watching movies such as The Dark Knight, Pirates of the Caribbean or Inception, you probably have Hans Zimmer to thank. Few people know who actually writes and puts together the scores for their favorite movies and yet they feel the amazing effect of the soundtrack on their skin. Hans decided to join forces with BMW i this year, for his debut at the famous Coachella music festival. I dont really need to explain what Coachella is because for the last couple of years, this venue has been the place where incredible performances have taken place. From a hologram of none other than 2Pac to this year’s orchestra performance from Hans Zimmer’s crew, the SoCal event draws the attention of the entire globe to the small city of Indio, California. This year marked, as I said, a premiere for the famous German composer. He’s been touring for a while with his orchestra, performing his amazing scores in front of live audiences and always ending with a standing ovation.
