Self-driving concept that can rotate on the spot is on show in Detroit a week after it made a first appearance at the CES The Rinspeed Oasis is a compact, two-seat autonomous city car that features solar panels and can rotate on the spot. Designed to demonstrate a less conventional method of transport for the future, the model is on display in Detroit following a debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week. The Oasis's front wheels can turn on their own axis, enabling the car to navigate incredibly tight turns and rotate on the spot to squeeze into parking spaces. The car’s windscreen features virtual and augmented reality technology, where illustrations and data can be placed beside on objects outside. Inside, the nature-inspired cabin features a small garden plot at the front. There are armchairs, a sideboard, a TV and folding steering wheel, emphasising the car's main role as an autonomous vehicle.

11. Put the dough in the fridge. Lemon cream 1. Cut each lemon in ½ and squeeze the juice out. I like to do this with my hands and a small strainer to catch the seeds. 2. You need 75ml of juice so it depends on how big your lemons are! 3. Put the butter into a non-stick small pot and turn the stove on to a medium heat. 4. When the butter melts add lemon juice, then 3 eggs and sugar and stir well using a whisk. 5. Continue to stir until the cream thickens and your kitchen will start to smell DIVINE! 6. Pre heat the oven at 180C degrees. 7. Once you have a nice thick cream, take it off the stove and leave it to the side to cool down. Assemble the lemon tart! (The fun part!) 1. Get the dough from the fridge, remove the cling wrap and put it on top of the board. Press down on it using your fingers, then get a rolling pin and flatten it from front to back and side to side, opening it up.

The Fazer is no slouch, so Walid had no need to mess with the engine. Instead, he worked around it to squeeze out a little more performancestarting with a custom-made CDI that allows him to tune the ignition to his heart’s desire. The rest of the wiring's been simplified, and now runs off a Motogadget m-Unit controller. And there's a weight-saving Lithium-ion battery tucked away in the seat hump. The original airbox is gone, but rather than just snap on a set of pod filters, Walid's taken the trouble to build a proper filter box, calculating the optimal volume for the carbs. It's matched up to a hand-made, stainless steel four-into-one exhaust system. There's even a custom-made water cooler. “I've taken a karting grid and then rebuilt the box around it,” Walid tells us. “It allows me to reduce the dimensions and the volume, while improving the cooling system at the same time.

Enlarge / We're digging the cartoony poster made for this year's Awesome Games Done Quick event. (credit: Kevin Fagaragan / Games Done Quick ) In the world of classic video games, bragging rights (and unforgettable documentaries ) used to go to world-record high-score battles. That has shifted somewhat in recent years due to the world of speedrunning, in which gamers combine incredible skills and glitch trickery to squeeze short completion times out of their favorite old games. While anybody new to the speedrunning world can pick through gaming-video archives on Twitch and YouTube to learn more, I personally recommend something with more excitement and fanfare: Awesome Games Done Quick . The annual, live-streamed gaming marathon launched on Sunday, and this seventh iteration will operate at pretty much all hours for the next six days, complete with a live studio audience in Herndon, VA watching along the whole time.

It was an astonishing act at a time when respectable Chinese females still thought it vaguely indecent to be seen outside of the home but he also lost none of his toughness. Among his disciples was Ip Shui, whose feet the grandmaster would scorch with the bowl of his pipe to toughen them up. Tang Ming TungInternational Guoshu Association Chow Ka Southern Praying Mantis Master Li Tin-loy performs a set at a park in Hong Kong, 2016. Ip eventually proved worthy of carrying on the lineage, and taught Li for more than a decade, subjecting him to the same sort of arduous physical punishment. To this day, Li will invite an interlocutor to grip his neck and give it a squeeze. Astonishingly, nothing gives. It's as if the years have grown him an invisible exoskeleton. Between Li and Ip, and Ip and Lau, there was the close relationship between student and master of the kind once integral to the transmission of kung fu.

The wheels have gone down in size, with new 17Warp 9 rims laced up at both ends. Cognito used one of their own conversion hubs up front to match the wheel to the R6 forks. Out back, the swing-arm's been extended by 2½”, and notched to squeeze in the 5wide rim and 170 tire. The guys even had to offset the sprockets to match the wheel's extra girth. The XS650's rear brake's been upgraded too. Cognito converted it from drum to disc, using a prototype conversion hub and Brembo caliper for more stopping power. They left the frame mostly stockclearing out any unnecessary tabs, and adding one of their popular LED-integrated tail loops. Cognito then carved out a new seat, and sent it to Ginger McCabe at New Church Moto to work her magic on the upholstery. The rear's propped up by a new set of adjustable Fox Podium R shocks. We're sold on the suspension and braking mods, but as it turns out, there's some hidden goodness under the hood too.

The second one, dented the CIA drug sales in the country, in a big way. Duterte’s Drug War Banging On CIA Drug Enterprise In Southeast Asia The Philippine authorities have proclaimed victory over the war on illegal drugs as the largest drug bust ever in the history of Philippine drug busting, involving PHP 6 billion worth of high-grade methamphetamine, led to the arrest of the most sophisticated drug manufacturers so far. Said group dismantles their equipment after every cooking session. Pre-raid NBI surveillance took about 4 months of hard work. Previous drug busting yielded the discovery of a 4.8 ton monthly capacity drug laboratory in Virac, Catanduanes. … and hundreds more drug busting operations upon medium scale meth labs spread all throughout the country. In addition to the domestic efforts to squeeze the fancy world of the local druglords, Duterte has been very active in coordinating the country’s war on drugs with the rest of the ASEAN members he had already visited to, in the last 6 months.

Examples of what you would expect to see at a plane crash site are shown. Captain Russ Whittemberg, a pilot with over 30 years in military and civil aviation, said: “I have been at some accident investigation sites in the Air Force. And I have never come across any accident scene where there is no tell-tale evidence of the plane that crashed.” There is no evidence that either the airplane engines or the wings impacted the building. Instead, we are supposed to believe that the 38 meter (125 feet) wide Boeing 757 fit into a hole that is only 5 meters (16 feet) wide. We are supposed to believe that the wings folded up like those of a dragon fly and squeeze into the 5 meter wide hole. Major General Albert Stubblebine: “One of my experiences in the Army was being in charge of the Army’s Imagery Interpretation for Scientific and Technical Intelligence during the Cold War.

Saint Nicholas was a real, historical person . But he didnt live in some snowy Northern place like the North Pole or Scandinavia. And he probably wasnt fair-skinned with ruddy cheeks. He lived in the town of Myra – on the Southern Coast of Turkey – in the fourth century (it was then part of Greece). So he likely had an olive-colored, Mediterranean complexion: Russian icon depicting St Nicholas with scenes from his life. Late 1400s or early 1500s. National Museum, Stockholm And he didnt ride a magic sleigh driven by flying reindeer, have a workshop full of elves, squeeze through chimneys with belly-defying dimensions, or maintain a naughty-or-nice list rivaling the NSA. The real St. Nick came from a wealthy family, and his parents died in an epidemic when he was young. Nick used his large inheritance to help the poor. For example, poor young girls were likely to be sold into slavery because they didnt have a dowry with which to attract a husband.

Building the bonkers 620R out of Lego took three hours – and it was time very well spent The Caterham Seven has long been available as a kit, albeit one that is too big to easily squeeze under your average festive fir tree. Thankfully, the Danish brickmeisters at Lego have the answer: a model of the bonkers Seven 620R. At £69.99, it’s significantly cheaper than the £16,995 that an entry-level Seven 160 in kit form would cost, and at nearly a foot long, the Lego model is the perfect size for your desk or mantelpiece. The 770 bricks that make up the kit took a morning to slot together and turn into a detailed model, complete with a removable bonnet that hides an intricate engine, an opening boot and even four little axle stands. While our timelapse video makes it look like a quick process, the reality is that it took three hours. Saying that, they were three very enjoyable hours,a nd we’d bet that any petrolhead would be happy to find one in their stocking.

6. Squeeze all of the excess water out of the pieces of bread and then break each one into small pieces and add it to your meatballs mix too. 7. Sprinkle some salt and pepper over the top and mix everything together with a fork. 8. Now it's time to assemble! Assembling the Italian Metballs: 1. Get a palm full of ingredients (or less, depending on the size you want to make) and roll them into a ball. 2. Make as many meatballs as you can using all of your mixture and try to make them all more or less the same size as this will ensure they all cook through at the same time. Vincenzo's Tip: Keep a small bowl of water nearby as in between making each one, you might need to dampen your hands a little to stop anything from sticking to them. 5. By now, your potatoes should be cooked and you can remove the lid from the sauce and add them in. Carefully stir them through and pur the lid on again.
