For those who prefer the overall figure, that means flat out it can empty its 100-litre tank in nine minutes. 516g/km If you’re looking for a fuel-sipping environmentally friendly car, you’ve come to exactly the wrong place. Official CO2 emissions are measured at a whopping 516g/km and claimed fuel economy is just 12.5mpg. 3800G Each gram of rubber in the Chiron’s tyres can withstand a centrifugal force of 3800G, which is more than the boots of a Formula 1 car can manage. 38000rpm New turbochargers in the Chiron are operated in a two-stage process; during step off just two function initially, with the remaining two joining in to boost performance when the engine speed rises above 3800rpm.

Five Lives Remembered was actually the first book Dolores Cannon wrote even though it was not published until 2009. It chronicles how she and her husband, Naval Officer Johnny Cannon, were first introduced to past life regression and reincarnation using hypnosis in 1968. They were able to take a woman back to 5 previous lifetimes all the way to the point where she was created by God. What began as an experiment crossed the boundaries of imagination to open up an entirely new way of thinking! Five Lives Remembered by Dolores Cannon Five Lives Remembered by Dolores Cannon What do you do when you discover information that is before its time? What do you do when your curiosity takes you on an adventure that is so bizarre that there is nothing normal to relate to? This is what happened to Dolores Cannon in 1968, long before she began her career as a past-life hypnotherapist and regressionist.

Funcom's woefully underrated and underplayed MMO is set to return this spring with a new title Secret World Legends and so, so, sooooo much more. From the sound of things, a totally new, free-to-play game has been built right on top of the old one. SEE ALSO: The next big update to 'Heroes of the Storm' takes a page out of 'Overwatch' Legends takes The Secret World 's framework literally, everything that's been released in the game to date and re-works it as an action-RPG.

Heroes of the Storm , Blizzard Entertainment's foray into the MOBA genre, is getting a major facelift in 2017 with a new progression system, loot chests and a whole lot of new loot. In the spotlight video above, Blizzard lays out all the new features and changes coming to the game in an update dubbed Heroes of the Storm 2.0 , which currently doesn't have a release date (although it sounds like it's coming very soon). In addition to new collectible loot like hero voice lines and banners to mark camps or towers you've beaten Heroes 2.0 is introducing a new way to get that loot that looks very similar to Overwatch : you'll get loot chests after every level. Loot crates can contain the new loot mentioned above, heroes, hero skins, mounts, portraits and, another new feature, sprays. Read more...

In a recent attempt to understand how conventional physicsexplainsreality, I began to read Lawrence Krauss’ A Universe from Nothing Krauss is one of those famous scientists like Richard Dawkins who doesnt find anything strange about the fact that existence IS. Instead he takes EVERYTHING for granted and attacks, like Dawkins and Bill Maher, the low hanging fruit of organized religion and its dogmatic, unproven Gods created in our image. When I tried reading his book I got a bit frustrated and then checked the index for the wordconsciousness,” and when I did not find it, I put the book aside. The question really is — “what” exactly is “nothing”? First and foremost it is a concept. Nothing does not exist. What exists is, well, everything. Nothing is the word or placeholder we use for nullsimilar to zero in math — but in both cases (words and math) they are human abstractions or interpretations of Nature.

However, the 12MP sensor on the back is still one of the best around, offering speedy snaps and great performance in low light. This year Samsung has added in something called multi-frame image, which takes three snaps and finds the sharpest, so the quality should be improved in terms of what you're looking at, at least. There's also the same impressive range of modes and options from Samsung within the Galaxy S8, from the clever auto mode, which manages to pick out a great picture nearly every time, to the professional mode, which offers the chance to really tweak the settings and shoot in raw too. The front-facing camera has been boosted to 8MP, and there's also a fun new effects button which you can use to give yourself a range of augmented reality makeovers to entertain your friends, as they wonder why you've not just decided to use Snapchat instead.

Word is that Harvey 'scissor-hands' Weinstein's been fiddling with the cut of Tulip Fever , but Chadwick and Stoppard's previous work leaves us hopeful that the movie will survive the tinkering. Once again, the cast is also tip-top: look out for Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz and the ubiquitous Cara Delevingne among the blooms. 25. The Circle Dave Eggers' novel of the same name is a high-tech, Orwellian dystopia for our times: a drama-thriller about a Google-like internet company and its gradual encroachment on its users' privacy. The movie, written and directed by James Ponsoldt ( The Spectacular Now ) will star Emma Watson as the new employee who watches as the tech firm quietly takes over the planet. Done right, The Circle could be genuinely disturbing. 24. The Dark Tower This one's been a long time coming. Based on Stephen King's formidable collection of eight novels, it promises to be the sci-fi horror fantasy western we've all been waiting for.
