If people were asked to guess what the best-selling sports car in the world is, there’s a good chance that the answers would have as much variety to them as the number of colors in a Skittles pack. The Mazda MX-5 is a good answer. The same goes for the Porsche 911, and at least for new models, the BMW 4 Series. All three models have proven to be popular among buyers all over the world, but none of them can lay claim to being the best-selling sports car in the world. That title now belongs to a certain muscle car from Dearborn, the Ford Mustang. It seems to strange to think that it took this long for the Mustang to ascend to being the best-selling sports car in the world considering that it’s been around since 1964. But the current-generation Mustang has done the car’s legacy right because according to IHS Markit new vehicle registration data, over 150,000 Mustangs were sold all over the world in 2016.

Jason Leopold knows a thing or two about the Freedom of Information Act. Buzzfeed’s senior investigative journalist currently has about 2,000 outstanding FOIA requests with federal agencies150 of them submitted this year alone. He says that while he found the penchant for government secrecy to be “really bad” under the Obama administration, things have gotten worse since President Donald Trump took office. “I have seen across the board with all agencies, an aggressive effort to withhold records,” he said recently. “I see this as a radical change in just three months compared with what happened under the Obama administration.” Leopold began his journalism career in 1992, but did not start using the public records law aggressively until 2009, after a bad experience with an anonymous source. While working for Truthout, the nonprofit news website and daily newsletter, Leopold relied on false information from the source and wrongly reported in 2006 that a grand jury had indicted Karl Rove for lying during a federal investigation of the public identification of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame.

Here's an interesting example of a company evolving new products around a central idea: Bissell got their start in the late 1800s producing carpet sweeping devices. By the 1950s they'd branched out into carpet-cleaning contraptions, and in the 1970s, carpet deep cleaning machines. In the 2000s, vacuums targeting owners of fur-shedding pets. Now they've combined the latter two categories, adapting a carpet-cleaning machine to harmlessly wash dogs. As an owner of two dogs, I have been through the exact hell depicted in this video for the Bissell Barkbath : The Barkbath, if it works as advertised, would be worth every penny of the $150 asking price, versus paying professional groomers to do it. Isolating the mess to the inside of a tank you can pour out, and obviating the need to scrub your entire bathroom down every time you wash your dog(s), would be a huge boon.

No surprises there. Wii U sales now sit at 13.56 million units , and with global production now ended , that's probably where they'll remain. We have done a lot of things to raise awareness about how the Switch experience can offer something new, and I am just relieved that consumers seem to have accepted it, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima told the Wall Street Journal . He admits to some surprise over Zelda s uptake, but that it vindicates the view that a good game title will spur sales of the platform device. There's also Nintendo's smartphone initiative, whose current titles Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes have brought in revenue of 24.3 billion yen. Nintendo says Super Mario Run is closing on 150 million downloads, and though Fire Emblem Heroes has managed only a tenth that number, it's been more profitable.

Both phones are expected to run Android Nougat, specifically apparently Android 7.1.1, and in typical Motorola fashion this is likely to be more or less stock Android. TechRadars take: The rumors suggest a slight spec boost over the Moto E3 and the latest version of Android on board, which is exactly what wed expect. Moto E4 price The only price rumor so far puts the Moto E4 at around 150 euros (roughly $165/125/AU$220) and the Moto E4 Plus at around 190 euros (approximately $205/160/AU$275). TechRadars take: Those prices are only approximate, but would make the Moto E4 slightly more expensive than the Moto E3, which makes sense, given the move to metal and the improved specs. A Moto X (2017) might be on the way too

On the basis of this commitment of talent alone, Mr. Cohen assessed that “no reasonable person could have viewed the totality of the information that the Intelligence Community had at its disposal … and reached any conclusion or alternative views that were profoundly different from those that we reached,” namely that – judged with high confidence – “Iraq had chemical and biological weapons as well as missiles with ranges in excess of the 150 kilometer limit imposed by the UN Security Council.” Two facts emerge from this expression of intellectual hubris. First, the U.S. Intelligence Community was, in fact, wrong in its estimate on Iraq’s WMD capability, throwing into question the standards used to assign “high confidenceratings to official assessments. Second, the “reasonable personstandard cited by Cohen must be reassessed, perhaps based upon a benchmark derived from a history of analytical accuracy rather than time spent behind a desk.
