To get the new forks to fit without changing the geometry, the KZ1000 steering neck has been modified to accept the Honda triple trees. New progressive shocks hold up the rear end, linked to a modified rear frame—which now supports a discreet fender and a very elegant brown leather seat. Underneath the seat is a small lithium battery and a Motogadget m-Unit control box, which is wired up to bar-end turn lights and grips from the same company. The speedo is a GPS unit—which does not require a transmission sensor to operate, and locks on to GPS satellites within three seconds of powering up. Most older bikes require an engine upgrade to make modern-day power, but the KZ1000 is an exception. The DOHC, air-cooled inline four pumps out a very solid 90 horsepower. That’s about the same as Indian’s current 1100cc Scout, because the Kawasaki doesnt have modern emissions regulations to deal with.

5-inch display. Both have a refresh rate of 144Hz, along with a response time of 4ms, and FreeSync tech which eliminates stuttering and tearing for a smoother frame-rate all-round. Losing the lag You also get the usual features AOC has been incorporating into its monitors for a while now: a low input lag mode that enables your keyboard/mouse actions to be translated to the screen with minimal delay, and shadow control which lightens dark areas, helping you spot snipers lurking in the shadows (without washing out the rest of the image). The monitors also benefit from AOCs QuickSwitch controller, a nifty little separate keypad for quickly tweaking display settings, along with preset modes for different gaming genres (shooter, racing, RTS and so forth). You also get a carrying handle, headset holder, and LED lights on the lower bezel and rear of the monitor (with three color choices: red, green or blue).

Spy shots show new Fiat Panda Cross model, though the changes look very minor 2017-02-20 16:10 The Fiat Panda has been around since 2012 in its current form, meaning it's high time for a facelifted version to arrive - and our spy photographers have caught the new model out winter testing in Sweden. This model is a four-wheel drive Fiat Panda Cross , with the distinctive scuff plate on the lower front bumper and prominent fog lights near the grille. The camouflage on this prototype car appears to be doing a very good job of obascuring the changes, as it appears very similar to the current model. The Fiat badge looks slightly bigger, but we expect to see new lights and perhaps a tweaked bumper design on the finished product. It's also possible that this car is simply testing a new engine variant that would join the existing 1.3-litre diesel, 1.2-litre and 0.

Researchers from the University of Burgos (Spain) have developed a fluorescent polymer that lights up in contact with mercury that may be present in fish. High levels of the metal were detected in samples of swordfish and tuna. According to the conclusions of another Spanish study, mercury exposure is linked to reduced foetal and placental growth in pregnant women.

Developers at U.S. digital consultancy Rain have created a little-known app called Reverb that allows users to access Amazon's Alexa virtual assistant from their Mac desktop or iOS device. Launching the free Mac app prompts users to sign in to their Amazon account, after which a window opens showing the familiar blue Alexa ring on the desktop. Click and hold on the ring with the mouse cursor, and provided an internet connection is active, the virtual assistant listens and responds to the sort of spoken questions and commands usually directed at Amazon's Echo range of smart speakers. The iOS app works similarly, and the latest version of Reverb uses Alexa v2, which adds support for news flashes, timers, alarms, long form audio, audiobooks, and more. It can also interact with smart devices that are compatible with Alexa, such as lights, switches, and thermostats compatible with Samsung SmartThings, WeMo, Philips Hue, and others.

Teaser picture shows Toyotas latest i-TRIL concept, which will be a fully-electric city car 2017-02-20 10:30 Toyota has released a teaser picture of a new city car concept called the i-TRIL, which will be fully revealed alongside the facelifted Toyota Yaris and hot Yaris GRMN at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show . The picture doesn't show much, but the small grille and LED lights suggest that it'll follow along from the quirky i-ROAD in being a small, unusually-shaped electric city car. It looks fairly tall and thin, but Toyota has confirmed that the i-TRIL will seat three in a one-plus-two layout. • Best city cars on sale right now Toyota says that the concept "showcases Toyota research innovations in delivering better mobility that is also kinder to the environment," and it also features the same 'Active Lean' tech that was used on the i-ROAD.

V. Club critic Ignatiy Vishnevetsky in a 2014 piece on his search for it. And so, for decades, nearly everyone who wanted to see Un Femme coquette had to make do with mere descriptions. In his Godard biography Everything Is Cinema , New Yorker critic Richard Brody highlights not only how the filmmaker, in adapting this “tale about a woman who, seeing a prostitute beckon to passing men, decides to try the gesture herself [ … ] turns the necessity of filming cheaply and rapidly, without movie lights, into an aesthetic virtue,” but also how this “film about watching, about trying to live with what one has watched, and about the inherent dangers of doing so” evokes “the perilous path [Godard] was taking as he sought to enter the cinema and anticipates the moral dangers that awaited him there.” The sudden appearance of Un Femme coquette on “the digital back channels frequented by obscure movie enthusiasts,” as Vishnevetsky puts it , and complete with English subtitles at that, would thrill even a casual Godard fan.

If youre anywhere near the Arctic Circle, sleep with the curtains open. I always follow that travel advice, but on this occasion Im woken at 5am by a phone call. Aurora outside the hotel, cries a voice. I can hear people running down the corridors, and I join them, pulling on layer upon layer of winter clothing as I tumble outside into deep snow. The Northern Lights are twisting, pulsing and streaming across the sky above. Two hours later and Im back inside...

You can see the desk in a video, below. The real story here is mechanical and artistic. The electronics are nothing more than strip LED lighting and a common controller. We though a custom controller that could modulate and control the lights from the computer might be fun. Your desk could blink when an important e-mail arrives. Or maybe let the desk change color and intensity based on your CPU temperature. The video also shows a fast-motion sequence of the build, which doesn't look too hard until you try it in your garage, of course. We've seen some movie-inspired LED builds before, but this desk is probably the largest. Speaking of movie-inspired desks, though, we remember one inspired by Minority Report. Filed under: led hacks

"I feel the upgrading is fine as long as our businesses is not affected," she said. Lebuh Kimberly resident Ooi Meng Choo meanwhile urged the Council to choose another area to upgrade as the lane was currently used by her family to park their cars and the upgrading will inconvenience. The back lanes the Council is proposing to upgrade are located behind Jalan Magazine, Jalan Gurdwara, Jalan Cheong Fatt Tze, Jalan Dr. Lim Chwee Leong and Lebuh Tamil.
