On Tuesday, Facebook decided to block a video advertisement, stating that the ad violated their guidelines around sexual content. However, the ad was merely for a collection of artwork to be auctioned off and the "sexual content" was actually a piece of artwork. Mossgreen , the auction house in Australia who's behind the ad, has spoken out against Facebook's ban. Mossgreen's chief executive, Paul Summer, told The Guardian , "I can't quite believe it, to be honest. I feel I'm not living in the 21st century. It's like Facebook are living in the 1950s."

Gradually, word spread about Vega, who dreamed of customizing cars after watching The Dukes of Hazzard , Knight Rider and The A-Team as a kid. "I would always have in my mind that I would want to build a car for a movie one day, and it stayed in my heart to want to do that," Vega said. "Today I'm building cars for a lot of athletes and famous people." The work on a car can take as short as a week to as long as a month, with costs ranging from as little as $1,000 to $75,000, the amount Cespedes spent customizing a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador .

Discretely hidden within Bristol Harbour Hotel Spa, The Gold Bar is as luxurious as the name suggests and as far as city centre bars go, they don't get much grander. Opposite the famous nails outside the Corn Exchange on Corn Street, this smart new hotel occupies two venerable old buildings - the old Lloyds Bank headquarters and the Midland Bank - and, mainly due to its listed status, much of the original Victorian splendour has been retained. The Gold Bar itself occupies a warren of...

So basically they’re being lied to. Now, if the center-left or the center parties in the United States and Britain simply write these people off as racists, then there’s nothing they have to do in terms of examining their own actions, their own policies, or even think that what they’ve done is wrong in any sense, giving them some inclination as to why people dislike them so much. So it’s very dangerous to use the racism diagnosis, not because it’s empirically wrong but because it leads us to a dead end politically. MPN: Looking at Brexit, how has the British economy performed since the referendum and how do you believe that the British economy will perform once the Brexit process has been completed? MB: This is really interesting. There’s a famous line from one of the British politicians who, when all the experts lined up and said, before the Brexit vote, dont do this, it’ll be the end of the world.

Jordan Katsianis 1 Mar 2017 Brabus will hit the Geneva Motor Show this year with a new car based on the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet . The brand is famous for fettling Mercedes cars, and has been doing so for over 40 years. The new model will be called the 650 Cabrio. The soft-top’s headline upgrade is a revised version of the 4-litre V8 bi-turbo with a power output of 641bhp and peak torque of 604lb ft plateaued across most of the rev range. Brabus has achieved this through replacing the factory AMG turbos for its own units, an ECU upgrade and the fitment of a sports exhaust. Brabus has also removed the 155mph limiter, giving the 650 a 200mph top speed. Click here for our review of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Image 6 of 15 Image 6 of 15 To try and keep the 650 Cabrio relatively sociable during early morning starts, the sports exhaust system employs a series of internal bypass valves, giving it an Aston Martin-style quiet start mode if the driver so wants.

The original Sidekick, branded by T-Mobile, was actually made by the awesomely-named Danger Inc. They called the phone the Hiptop, explaining instantly why T-Mob renamed it, but they did have some good ideas, including one of the earliest app marketplaces. Unlike LG, T-Mobile succeeded in making the Sidekick a hit with celebrities, and the phone was seen in the hands of such illustrious talents as Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian and both Nicky and Paris Hilton (how is she such a phone guru?). Its clever design also made it popular with consumers: the hardware Back, Menu and Jump buttons could be accessed even when the phone was closed. Of course, Danger Inc wont be bringing the phone back themselves, since they were bought by Microsoft for a reported $500m in 2008. However, Danger co-founder Andy Rubin went on to start a little thing called Android, and is now working on a mysterious startup with a bunch of famous phone folks.

Yiannopoulos, who has resigned from his position as editor of Breitbart News , a highly successful right-wing media outlet, also lost a lucrative book deal. So for a brief moment it might have appeared that the alt-right was on the outs. Two of its most famous faces had been pushed out of CPAC, and leading conservative voices were condemning the movement. But then there was still Steve Bannon. President Donald Trump at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Photo credit: Gage Skidmore / Flickr (CC BY-SA 2.0) The former head of Breitbart, who left the publication that he once called “the platform for the alt-right” to first win and then run the White House for Donald Trump, was front and center at CPAC. He shared a stage with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Schlapp. Interestingly, Bannon's associate Stephen Miller, who has been instrumental in Trump's speech-writing and executive orders, was a college collaborator with Richard Spencer, as confirmed by a professor who participated with them in an on-campus debate on immigration .
