Next to the shift lever is a red Start/Stop button, which is a new placement for BMW, as the starter button was usually dash-mounted right next to the steering wheel. It looks good on the center console though. Also, the iDrive rotary knob received a bit of a makeover and is now a knurled aluminum knob that looks far more upscale that the current plastic one. A black gloss touchpad remains on top of the rotary knob and is covered in Swarovksi glass with a Smoky Quartz look. The cabin is my favorite part of this Concept and really evokes the spirit of a high-end sporty GT car. We really hope that a lot of the design elements in this concept, such as the starter button, flowing console and shift lever, make it to production. According to BMW, this 8 Series Concept is a preview of what's to come from the real car. This is encouraging news, as this would be one of BMW's prettiest cars in a long time and would likely make us forget about losing the very pretty 6 Series Coupe .

In the summer, food is more beautiful with a pink hue: Rosé , Frappuccinos , cakes and now, pink pineapples . The strange new strain of everyones favorite tropical fruit has actually been in development by Del Monte Fresh Produce since 2005, but the pictures of their hot pink perfection began to surface again last week. Now theyre taking over Instagram feeds just in time for summer. Yes, theyre cute but can you eat them? Last December, the FDA gave pink pineapples its seal of approval, meaning they can be sold in grocery stores. Now, Del Monte and Dole are teaming up like two produce superheroes to grow the pink pineapples in Hawaii and Costa Rica. Even if the FDA says theyre safe to eat or wedge on the edge of your cocktail glass by the pool they are indeed genetically modified . Del Monte, which received the patent to create that signature extra sweet pink flesh pineapple, appropriately named Rosé, in 2012, turned the pineapples pink using lycopene, the substance that gives tomatoes their fire engine red color, and makes watermelons pink as well, meaning youve probably already safely eaten plenty of lycopene in your life.

“We think that the costs are so high for the military that we dont have the means to cater to the means of people. The effects of societies of war are that they migrate by need. And ecologically, we misuse national resources such as minerals and energy and dig oils to keep the military machine going.” The U.S. president had called NATOobsolete” during his campaign, but said in April that NATO has been the “bulwark of international peace and security.” Left-wing French politician Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who wanted France to leave NATO, received close to 20 percent of the vote during the first round of presidential elections there a month ago; a study by the U.S.-based Pew Research Center, however, shows citizens of most NATO countries are in favor of the military alliance.

She did get a superficial wound, and she's going to get the right treatment." The family has received backlash for allegedly feeding breadcrumbs to the sea lion, which they have denied. They are also reportedly considering legal action against the student who filmed the incident for "insinuating they were the ones feeding the sea lion." Professionals have also been critical of the family, with UBC 's Marine Mammal Research Unit director Andrew Trites saying: "My first reaction to the video is just how stupid some people can be to not treat wildlife with proper respect. They are huge animals. They are not circus performers. They're not trained to be next to people." Regardless of any fault, we hope the little girl receives swift and proper treatment.

Former US president gets hero’s welcome as he reunites with Angela Merkel and urges crowd to ‘fight those who divide us’ Barack Obama received a hero’s welcome when he reunited with Angela Merkel for the first time since leaving office, calling on the audience to engage in democracy and telling the tens of thousands in Berlin: “We can’t hide behind a wall.” Speaking in front of the Brandenburg Gate, which was once cut off by the Berlin Wall, the former US president was greeted with cries of “Barack, Barack” as he urged the 70,000-strong crowd to “push back against those trends that would violate human rights or suppress democracy or restrict individual freedoms” and to “fight against those who divide us”.

In the spring he forced the steel companies to roll back an inflationary price increase. Its a revolution, my father remarked, as he handed me the paper with the news. In September came the battle over the admission of James Meredith to the University of Mississippi. And then, the next month, one Monday morning, my father called me into my parents bedroom to brief me on the Presidents announcement that Soviet missiles had been discovered in Cuba . With events unfolding so rapidly, our lack of news was never more painful than it was then. We received film of the presidents address and watched it during the week, but it wasnt until many years later that I realized how close we had come to war. But my father the following Sunday got word through the Embassy that Khrushchev had agreed to pull the missiles out.

Fox News has announced that primetime host Sean Hannity will be taking a vacation over Memorial Day weekend and is scheduled to return to his show Tuesday night. The statement said that those "who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish," according to Variety. The statement comes at the end of a tumultuous week for Hannity, after he received criticism for pushing a conspiracy theory about the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich. Fox News on Tuesday retracted the story suggesting Rich could have been murdered for leaking internal communications from the DNC to Wikileaks, a story Hannity promoted on his popular program. Hannity seemed to table the issue during his show Tuesday night, saying, "Out of respect for the family’s wishes, for now, I am not discussing the matter at this time." The network released a short statement on Hannity's vacation.

One of the other accused Joan Besoli was also denied bail, however both men can appeal the decision. The investigation is centred on a contract signed in 2006 to hand over the rights to 24 Brazil friendly matches to a company based in the Cayman Islands but tied to Saudi group Dallah Albaraka. The contract states that whoever bought the rights would have to pay into funds controlled by Rosell and Teixeira. In the court filing the judge suspects that Rosell received6.58 million and Teixeira8.393 million "without the knowledge of the CBF and to its detriment." The money was then transferred via a complex web of accounts to Andorra, a tiny principality wedged between Spain and France that used to be considered a tax haven. Teixeira, a former Fifa vice-president, has been indicted by US Justice Department prosecutors investigating the Fifa corruption scandal.

Targeting A Cancer Biomarker This week the FDA granted approval to the cancer drug Keytruda, an immunotherapy drug. This is a milestone — the first time a cancer drug has received approval for targeting a particular biomarker rather than a location in the body. In other words, this development marks a new way of approaching cancer treatments. Now, drug developers are validated in developing new medications focused on the genetics of both patient and tumor, rather than the harsher, scorched-earth tactics of the past that kill healthy and sick cells alike, such as chemotherapies . Keytruda (pembrolizumab) is designed for patients who have mutations and other genetic flaws in their “mismatch repairgenes that prevent their cells from being able to fix DNA errors. This particular genetic difference can mean higher susceptibility to cancer, but it also means receptivity to Keytruda.

UNTIL recentlyUber envyafflicted many top executives at Airbnb, a platform for booking overnight stays in other people’s homes. So admits a big investor in the firm. The two companies often raised money at the same time, and the ride-hailing giant reliably received more cash and closer attention. Uber is America’s most valuable private technology firm, with a valuation of close to $70bn at last count; Airbnb is still in second place with a value of around $30bn. But with Uber facing a series of setbacks, including allegations of intellectual-property theft, departures by senior executives and a consumer boycott, jealousy in Airbnb’s hallways has largely evaporated.
