It showed the third-generation model, earmarked for a 2011 launch, at the 2010 Detroit motor show at the beginning of that year, evidently to stress the car’s global credentials and pay homage to the firm’s hometown. No-one inside the Blue Oval’s HQ will yet confirm the car’s arrival date, but the same could very well happen again, which would mean a reveal at the 2018 Detroit motor show.

No fraud? No whining little man, get back in line and play nice. According to the New York Times , President Trump’s promise to investigate voter fraud has drawn predictable responses from Democrats and the media, who insist there is no such thing and have been fighting for years to prevent any inquiry into the matter. But an investigation in Mr. Trump’s hometown shows that the problem is real. It seems that progressives, especially the Berners, are presented with a conundrum, a riddle if you will. If they want candidates like Sanders in the future, they need to get behind an investigation into what everyone with a pulse knows is true, except party-line Democrats. If they don't or won't, the Party has spoken. No progressive candidate for you. Ever again, ad infinitum. Should progressives support a real investigation into voter fraud, they are declaring war on their hob-nail compatriots, supporting Trump, and a return to the rule of law on a very divisive issue.

IT wasnt quite Brian Clough telling the 1974 Leeds United squad he had just inherited to “throw their medals in the bin because they were not won fairly” but the sentiment was on similar lines. Billy Nelson, erstwhile boxing coach to world champion Ricky Burns, has now spent six weeks training heavyweight Gary Cornish following the latter’s move from his hometown of Inverness to Glasgow. The picture that has emerged – and one that was enhanced during Cornish’s maiden fight since teaming up with Nelson and management team MTK Scotland last Saturday night – is that there remains plenty of potential in the 29 year-old but that his reputation to date is one that has been built on sand rather than concrete. Cornish’s fight record is an impressive 24 wins and just the one loss – and that to the otherworldly Anthony Joshua - but Nelson feels that doesnt tell the full story.

Apple Apple has been building its giant new "spaceship" campus in the company's hometown of Cupertino, California, since December of 2013, and since then fans have paid obsessive attention to the structure. It gets buzzed by drones constantly, and the most popular YouTube videos of the building in progress have amassed well over half-a-million views apiece. The company announced today that the campus will be open to employees starting in April and that the building and environs now have a name: Apple Park . Apple says that moving the 12,000 employees who will work at the campus will take more than six months, and landscaping and construction on some buildings won't be done until the summer. The new campus mostly replaces the university-style Infinite Loop campus Apple has used since 1993, though Apple has said that it will also be keeping the older buildings. The new campus' cost has been estimated at around $5 billion . Read 2 remaining paragraphs | Comments

A Muslim-American group in the U.S. helped raise more than $77,000 in a single day to help a historic Jewish cemetery in Missouri repair hundreds of gravesites desecrated in what is being condemned as an apparent act of anti-Semitism. The overwhelming support has brought some comfort to those whose relatives are buried at the Chesed Shel Emeth Society cemetery in St. Louis, where more than 150 tombstones were toppled and damaged this week. To me, that outpouring is love, said Barbara Perle, whose grandparents and great-grandparents are among her relatives buried at the site. In my heart, love heals. Perle, 66, who now lives in California, said she felt heartbroken when she learned of the vandalism in her hometown. She said she has not been able to find out whether her relatives sites were disturbed because the cemeterys phone line has been inundated with calls.

Many of the students finance their medical education through hundreds of thousands of dollars in private loans and if they cant work as doctors, theres little chance theyll be able to pay it back. These young people are social capital, said Kuczewski, a bioethics professor. Theyre ambitious, theyre all at least bilingual and bicultural, and theyre incredibly well-suited to serving patient populations that are underserved. Manriques classmate, Cesar Montelongo, was 10 years old when his family fled to the United States to escape drug-cartel turf wars in their hometown of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, one of the worlds most dangerous cities. They crossed the U.S. border legally and overstayed their tourist visas. It took more than a decade for a family-sponsored visa application submitted by Montelongos American uncle to be approved, by which time Montelongo and his sister were too old to qualify as part of the family.

Tyus Jones had his cellphone pressed to his ear o n draft night in 2015 just like every executive, agent and first-round prospect in basketball. Flip Saunders was on the other end. He offered some very good news: Jones, the darling of Duke's latest national championship team, was about to get drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 24th pick. But Saunders also had even better news: The Cavs were making the pick for him. A trade was in the works, and Saunders was bringing the Minnesota native home to play for the Timberwolves . "I already had a previous relationship with Flip," Jones said. "And being able to come back home and getting picked by my hometown team, it was just a surreal moment." Through the most tragic of circumstances, Jones' taste of the unstable side of NBA life would soon take a terrible turn. In October, before Jones' rookie season had even begun, Saunders died of cancer at the age of 60.

The technique is somewhat similar, except leaves are more fragile hence he preserves the leaves before carving and avoids using dried leaves. “The leaves are preserved by soaking in a glycerin and water mix for about three to four days. Then I carve using a paper carving knife; the ones you can find in any art shop. “There arent any specific leaves I use; I just use any kind of leaves I can find. Sometimes I would purposely travel back to my hometown in Terengganu to collect leaves, and some are collected when I am on vacation,” he said. Lua used to be a visual merchandiser which equipped him with the knowledge on how he should present his artwork to consumers. It also helps him in art bazaars where he sells his leaf carvings. He sometimes also carves for his friends and family. His curiosity to learn new things landed him the opportunity to study industrial design in Australia which he is currently pursuing.

Last season was one of the most brilliant of his career. Two uncharacteristic slips at the start of this season -- against Lyon with Juventus and Spain with the national side -- were quickly overshadowed by several top class performances. His mind remains sharp and his hands as hard as the marble of his hometown Carrara, with no sign of weariness as he targets a first Champions League title and a final World Cup in 2018 in Russia. By contrast Casillas has fared less well. The man dubbed 'San Iker' lost his place in the national side and had to leave Real Madrid for Porto after 25 years. His first season in Portugal in 2015 was complicated, with what he termed "some blunders". "Maybe I didn't reach the level I wanted last year, I didn't feel completely comfortable," Casillas said in an interview with UEFA.com. But the three-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid has regained his spark this season basking in glory as he oversees the most solid defence in Europe with just 11 goals conceded.

2. SHE HAD HUMBLE BEGINNINGS. There's a reason that much of the singer's music had gospel-like sounds. Simone—the daughter of a Methodist minister and a handyman—was raised in the church and started playing the piano by ear at age 3 . She got her start in her hometown of Tryon, North Carolina, where she played gospel hymns and classical music at Old St. Luke’s CME, the church where her mother ministered. After Simone died on April 21, 2003, she was memorialized at the same sanctuary. 3. SHE WAS BOOK SMART. Simone, who graduated valedictorian of her high school class, studied at the prestigious Julliard School of Music for a brief period of time before applying to Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music. Unfortunately, Simone was denied admission. For years, she maintained that her race was the reason behind the rejection. But a Curtis faculty member, Vladimir Sokoloff, has gone on record to say that her skin color wasnt a factor.
