A BMW insider told Auto Express that the renewed M8 will kick-start a reworking of the company’s GT line-up.

If all project are delivered on time, they will add approximately 50,000 square meters of new office space. Most of the new office supply classify as grade B. Therefore, the demand for high quality office space will continue growing as more companies seek to expand or improve their work conditions, said Kira Pruglo, head of research at CBRE Ukraine, a Kyiv-based consultancy firm. “Relocations dont affect vacancy level on the market unless occupiers expand their offices. But we see decreasing vacancy in class A and B buildings as more occupiers want to move to buildings of better quality or to expand,” said Pruglo. Recently it is also difficult to find smaller suites in the center of Kyiv, said Nick Cotton, managing director at Cushman & Wakefield. “I think office market is being relatively healthy. There are no large projects that are ongoing and that would suggest we will continue seeing vacancy going down,” said Cotton.

This is a caricature but the production car has the potential to be stunning, being based on this. “The number 8 has always represented the pinnacle of sports performance and exclusivity at BMW,” said BMW CEO Harald Krüger. “The forthcoming BMW 8 Series Coupe will demonstrate that razor-sharp dynamics and modern luxury can go hand-in-hand. This will be the next model in the expansion of our luxury-car offering and will raise the benchmark for coupes in the segment. In the process, we will strengthen our claim to leadership in the luxury class.” At the front, we see the nose plunge down toward the road more aggressively than any other BMW. That nose also features massive kidney grilles that, thankfully, don't blend into the incredibly squinty and angry headlights. The hood is also sharply creased and the front air intakes are simply enormous. Expect these features to be tamed way down for production duty but the idea of having such an angry face is a good one for the 8 Series.

The tool section of the emoji keyboard boasts an array of knives, a syringe, a water gun, a beeper, a battery, and a bomb. But when it comes to objects you might find in a laboratory, the options are slim to none. Scientists are hoping to change that by proposing a slate of science-specific emoji. If approved, items such as lab goggles, a petri dish, a test tube, and a DNA double helix could join the ranks of things you text your friends. SEE ALSO: Your hairstyle may be getting its very own emoji soon Industrial giant GE and the American Chemical Society last month proposed 10 emoji to the Unicode Consortium, the organization that oversees the official list of these icons. Nine emoji were deemed candidates for the next selection process, meaning all or some of these could hit keyboards in summer 2018. Read more...

Optical Music Recognition (OMR) MusicXML note example You've probably heard of OCR, Optical Character Recognition software, that converts words on paper to a digital form. Well there's also music OCR, or more precisely OMR, Optical Music Recognition software. You point a camera at a page of sheet music to capture an image, or give the software an image file or a PDF containing the sheet music, and it converts that to music that you can hear at the press of a button, or save to a MIDI or WAV file for playback from elsewhere. To try it out, I found a high quality one called SharpEye 2.68 that had a 30-day, free trial period. It's able to save the music as a MIDI file, MusicXML , and in NIFF format. The snippet of MusicXML shown here is of the musical note, A, and is a quarter note. As you'll see, SharpEye does an impressive job, given a clean, black and white image.

But I just flicked it on and he was watching it." And it turns out, Flynn had THE BEST reaction!! "I had a video camera on him as he was watching. He was like, 'Wait, that's you! What? That's you?' He was a little disgruntled, which I was freaked out about, because I was like, 'Wait! I should have spoken to a child therapist before I even thought about doing this. What was I thinking? This was a bad idea!' And then he loved it. He was like, 'So, wait a second: How long can you hold your breath under water for? Did you really do that?' Like, 'Yeah, bro! Forever! I could walk from one side of the ocean to the other.' Because he still believes that!" Aww! LOLz! Also, can we just talk about how Bloom calls his son "bro" because that is too much!

A few weeks ago, President Donald Trump seemed to have triggered a teensy constitutional crisis when he fired FBI Director James Comey . Among the shifting kaleidoscope of reasons for Comey’s termination was his investigation into Russia’s role in Trump’s election victory. The problem for Trump—which could rise to actual obstruction of justice charges—is that he fired Comey after inviting him to the White House, clearing the room of witnesses, and then allegedly telling him , “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.” In case that message didnt get through, he also allegedly added, “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.” (The case for obstruction has since been bolstered by reports of other witnesses and similar incidents .)

To see this person, who wants to be the one representative into the House of Representatives from Montana, be sort of a wannabe Trump, Pelosi said. You know, use language like that, treat people harshly like that. Thats his model. Donald Trump is his model. Gianforte has closely linked himself to Trump as part of his campaign. Trump lent his support to the candidate, recording a robocall for Gianforte, as he faces a close race against Democrat Rob Quist for Montanas lone House seat. The presidents son, Don Jr.

Since it launched 21 years ago after the tragic death of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman in Arlington, Texas, the AMBER Alert system has helped families and authorities successfully recover 868 missing children. But more than 460,000 children runaways, abductions, lost or injured kids go missing every year in the U.S., plus many more around the world.

Fun comes to the blue oval THE abrupt departure of Ford’s boss, Mark Fields, which the firm announced on May 22nd, has two explanations. Investors had become restive at its performance, particularly in the past year. But Mr Fields was also perceived to lack the drive of Alan Mulally, the man he succeeded. In replacing him with Jim Hackett (pictured), who ran an office-furniture company before joining Ford’s board in 2013 and more recently led the firm’s mobility unit, Ford hopes to conquer current problems and shore up its future strategy. Ford’s shares have declined by nearly 40% since Mr Fields took over (see chart). Though it made record profits in 2015 and had strong results in 2016, investors reckoned a booming North American market, on which it relies for nearly two-thirds of revenues, would slow. They also disliked the fact that Mr Fields had to invest heavily in new technologies. Ford suffered the ignominy of its market capitalisation being... Continue reading

As you can see, the iPhone 8 design has no 3.5mm headphone jack and uses a Lightning port at the base. It also has dual-speaker grilles. MORE photos have now emerged online showing the metal mold used to form the bodyshell of the iPhone 8 alongside the equivalent molds for the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The image, which rocked up on Chinese social network Weibo , shows the 5.8in iPhone 8 in the middle, with the 4.7in iPhone 7s on the right-hand side, and the larger 5.5in iPhone 7s Plus on the left; while the handset is smaller, the iPhone 8 has a larger display due to the screen curvature on the edges, it may also not have a physical control key on the front allowing more room for screen. You can see that the iPhone 8 has a vertical camera arrangement while the iPhone 7s has a single circular module, and the iPhone 7s Plus has a horizontal dual-sensor array.
