Permanent storage is courtesy of an M.2 PCIe 512GB SSD for the OS and a 1TB for everything else. More than generous we thought, but if thats not enough its possible to upgrade using three 512GB M.2 PCIe SSDs and one 2TB HDD, providing you a massive 3.5TB. Performance For the benchmarks, we set the Command & Control software to overclock the CPU to 4.0 GHz and turned the fans to the gaming setting. This did mean it got quite loud during the tests, and belted out heat from the rear vents. Its a laptop in name only, so wed recommend setting this up on a large well-ventilated desk for best results. Also due to the fan noise, consider noise-cancelling headphones when playing demanding titles. That being said, it breezed through The Division at just over 80fps on Ultra, and nearly hit 200fps on Low. Its scores bested both the Gigabyte P37X v6, HP Omen 17 and Acer Predator 17x.

But presumably, you’re moving into the West Wing because you’ve decided that policy matters more to you than profit (and that it’s harder to hawk jewelry on 60 Minutes than it looks). So if you’re serious about shaping your father’s presidency, dont buy your own hype that you can be the “Quiet Power Behind The Trump Throne.” There’s no such thing as quiet power in this White House madhouse. I hate to break it to you, but your dad thinks it’s cute that you want him to be nice. “She is a great person—always pushing me to do the right thing!” he tweeted , proverbially patting you on the head. He must really enjoy doing the “wrong thing,” since he rarely seems to take your advice. Instead, he’s led by pugnacious advisers who have built up their own fan bases and arent afraid to speak their mind to the media—like Kellyanne Conway, who publicly sandbagged a potential Cabinet post for Mitt Romney, and Steve Bannon, whose vision of “deconstructing the administrative state” was echoed by Trump days later.

Manager Derek Adams takes his strong Plymouth Argyle team into the last eight games of the season, needing just 14 points to guarantee automatic promotion. This is based on the fact that Stevenage who sit in fourth - the first play-off place - can only amass a total of 85 points from their remaining games. Luton Town would have been the Pilgrims' biggest threat had they won against lowly Newport County on Tuesday night, but were held to a 1-1 draw in South Wales. Argyle have probably...

This man was an enormous Trump fan but that has changed. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, tell you what happened. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Watch the whole video here: http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/21/health/opioid-trump-supporter-medicaid-health-care-reform/ “CNN’s Erin Burnett Out Front on Tuesday profiled a former Donald Trump supporter who attended 45 rallies during the campaign, but no longer supports the president or his agenda. Kraig Moss shadowed Trump’s campaign rallies during the 2016 election to tell the story of his son, Rob Moss, who died on Jan. 16, 2014 from a heroin/fentanyl overdose at age 24. The grieving father was a staunch Trump supporter, and was encouraged to support then-candidate Trump by his promise to help addicts struggling with addiction. Trump even reached out to Moss personally at a rally, calling him “a great father,” and assuring him, “your son is proud of you.

Spectacular overtaking “I think the Drag Reduction System [which aids overtaking] will be even more important this year. I’m no fan of DRS, but you feel a bigger drop off in aerodynamic grip when you’re following cars now. You lose the downforce and the car gets looser. Having said that, I think the overtakes will be better this year; being harder to do will make each passing move of a higher quality.” 4. More chance of mistakes “The cars now corner as if they are on rails, but when they do let go, they let go in a bigger way. Also, the races are going to be much more physical and it means drivers might [make mistakes] towards the end. With fatigue, it makes it easier to lose the car. This is Formula 1, so there’s no margin for error.” 5. Quicker lap times “Straight-line speeds are lower because there’s more drag, but around corners, it’s like stepping up from GP2 to F1 in terms of performance.

For everyone whos forgotten, Gad played Olaf in Frozen. If we saw him become a snowman in another Disney movie, we probably couldnt let it go. Sadly, it wasnt meant to be. (Cmon, Disney. Do you wanna build a ... fan base?) Cheer up though, peeps. For everyone craving Easter eggs, at least theres that possible Harry Potter nod in the opening song. It doesnt get more magical than that.

Consider this your regularly scheduled reminder that the Internet Archive continues to host some of the coolest relics of nerd history. Now, the scan-and-upload team led by Jason Scott delivers quite the piece of video game nostalgia: the Atari Coin Connection . Long before consumer magazines and fan newsletters ruled the industry, Atari's first publication launched in 1976 to an audience of businesses and arcade operators. The publication existed to simultaneously promote new arcade games and offer operator advice for existing machines, and full archives of the mostly black-and-white newsletter can now be accessed in the form of pristine scans. Scott confirmed to Ars that these scans have been sitting on other sites for roughly eight years. "I have been handed a pile of manuals, newsletters, and magazines today—about 20 gig—and while a lot were already on the Archive, a bunch weren't, so I'm reconciling that," Scott said to Ars via e-mail.

They are, and I was very happy to see them. I'm a big Maloof fan and copied one of his desks years ago. But I would suggest that the pieces on display by both Krenov and Maloof are more art pieces than other furniture these makers made for use in daily life. The Krenov cabinet, which is elegant and lovely, isn't a practical piece in any modern context. It's a curio cabinet, not a take on furniture that Americans regularly use in their houses. The Maloof double rocker is almost a joke on his signature single rocker, which is awesome. Maloof built hundreds of pieces that are absolutely modern in their usage. This chair is a collectible—more than something one would sit in every day. His rockers are great modern furniture and what would you rather own, one of his regular rockers that are comfortable and fun, or this double rocker, which you might sit in when? His desks are wonderful examples on how modern craft can interpret classic forms.

Nordia sees itself as an ambassador of the true, liberal spirit of Israelis, but is under no illusions over the need to overcome very different, dangerous visions of the country. I spoke to one of the new club’s international spokesmen, Daniel Rotem. We discussed why Nordia was founded and his own experience of racism in Israel and in Beitar Jerusalem. In the past, saying you were a Beitar Jerusalem fan was a source of pride, but Rotem says that “7 or 9 years ago” it changed to people tagging you as part of the “extreme right-wing” and “Arab-hating”. Rotem confirmed how much damage was done to the club’s reputation but vehemently disagreed such perceptions represented the majority of the fanbase. Though whether he felt safe walking into Beitar Jerusalem’s home, Teddy Stadium, was a separate story. Rotem assured me that Beitar’s support numbered in the hundreds of thousands while La Familia constituted maybe 5000.

Bachelor stars Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi are still trying to convince fans they like each other! On Wednesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show , Mr. Viall stopped by with dance partner Peta Murgatroyd to promote their current stint on Dancing With The Stars .

I think we both went in it wanting to be honest and open about couples, you know, sometimes things can get tough. But we're very committed to each other, we love each other, and that's what we're focusing on.

Branding and Visual Identity: Grindal & Patrick abduzeedo Mar 22, 2017 Grindal & Patrick is a branding and print design project shared by Mildred & Duck on their Behance profile. It's a simple branding for a law firm, but that doesn't mean it's ordinary. In the end it's all about the presentation and I think Mildred & Duck do an excellent job at focusing on the details of the print quality, paper, emboss and colors. I am a fan of this type of project because at first it seems easy to be done, but when you try, you realize that it's much harder than you assumed. In my case, most of the times, when I try to create something simple, there's always this feeling of that design is not complete, something is missing. Anyways, check out this beautiful branding project. Grindal & Patrick is a law firm that take a unique and modern approach to their practice.
