The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever Singer Vehicle Designs, the company famous for “reimagining” vintage Porsche 911s, is upping its game even further with a collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering to squeeze even more power out of the classic Porsche air-cooled engine.The tie-up has resulted in a modified, naturally aspirated, 4.0-litre air-cooled, flat-six with four-valves per cylinder and four camshafts, rated at an astounding 500 horsepower. The uprated powerplant will be installed into a Singer customer’s 1990 911 that is currently undergoing restoration. Getting more than twice the horsepower that was originally available in this vintage engine was due in no small part to Williams’ engine designer and engineer, Hans Mezger. The revised mill now has titanium connecting rods, dual oil circuits, carbon fibre injector trumpets and air box, a titanium exhaust system, a larger engine cooling fan and other changes to make the moving parts lighter, which results in a maximum rev range well past the original 9,000 rpm red line.  center_img Trending in Canada The client’s restored 911 should be ready next month, but this doesn’t mean the end of the benefits from the Singer/Williams collaboration; according to a press release, Singer will be offering a stand-alone restoration and modification services based on “light-weighting and dynamic gains” learned from Williams. Considering how beautiful Singer cars are already, this added bonus of high horsepower should make these restored 911s even more desirable. Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Singer Vehicle Designs collaborated with Williams Advanced Engineering on the 4.0L engine.

Colorado boy, 11, goes missing after leaving home to visit friend

first_imgEl Paso County Sheriff’s Office(COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.) — Authorities in Colorado continue to search for an 11-year-old boy who has been missing since Jan. 27 as more than 100 tips have flowed in to assist them.Gannon Stauch has been missing since last Monday, when he left his home at about 3:15 p.m. to 4 p.m. to walk to a friend’s house in Colorado Springs, his stepmother, Letecia “Tecia” Stauch, told the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. After initially categorizing Gannon as a runaway, the case was upgraded to a missing/endangered persons case.There were 50 people searching the Lorson Ranch neighborhood where the boy lives on Sunday, authorities said. The FBI has joined the search as well.“We would like to remind those who live in or around the Lorson Ranch area to be mindful of and check areas on your property a child may hide to include yards, window wells, outbuildings and culverts,” the sheriff’s office said.The number of tips has steadily grown, with the sheriff’s office announcing Sunday it was sifting through 134 to see if they could be of assistance.“I’m so thankful for all the outpouring of help this case has brought,” Gannon’s birth mother, Landen Hiott, said at a press conference on Friday. “My son is a very loving kid, he wouldn’t want harm on anybody at all and it’s so hard to think, ‘Why is this happening to him?’ I have no clue. My kid deserves to come home. My kid has a purpose, my kid has a life and is important to me and is important to everybody that is standing in this room.”The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office tweeted on Jan. 30, as rumors about the case began to spread online, “Any information prematurely released that has not been confirmed by the EPSO takes away from this investigation and does not help in locating Gannon.”FBI Child Abduction Rapid Deployment (CARD), Pikes Peak Regional Office of Emergency Management, El Paso County Search and Rescue, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Colorado Springs Police Department, Fountain Police Department and the Salvation Army have all been involved in the search.Stauch was last seen wearing a blue jacket, blue jeans and sneakers. He has brown hair and brown eyes and is about 4-foot-9 and 90 pounds. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Weekly unemployment claims fall to under 800

first_imgVermont Business Magazine After historic highs and spikes and dips, weekly unemployment claims fell back to a more typical level last week. Claims also fell back below numbers from the same time last year. Claims in 2015 generally were lower than in 2014, but since the holiday season have been running well ahead until last week. For the week of January 16, 2016, there were 753 claims, 402 fewer than the previous week’s total and 41 fewer than they were a year ago. By industry, claims were down for all categories and similar to the same time last year. Construction claims (36 percent) again led all categories. Altogether 7,535 new and continuing claims were filed, a decrease of 713 from a week ago, and 866 fewer than a year ago.The Department processed 0 First Tier claims for benefits under Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (EUC08).The Unemployment Weekly Report can be found at: http://www.vtlmi.info/(link is external). Previously released Unemployment Weekly Reports and other UI reports can be found at: http://www.vtlmi.info/lmipub.htm#uc(link is external)Vermont’s unemployment rate remained at 3.7 percent in November (half a point lower than November 2014), as the labor force and total employment fell, with a small decrease in the number of unemployed. SEE STORY.NOTE: Employment (nonfarm payroll) – A count of all persons who worked full- or part-time or received pay from a nonagricultural employer for any part of the pay period which included the 12th of the month. Because this count comes from a survey of employers, persons who work for two different companies would be counted twice. Therefore, nonfarm payroll employment is really a count of the number of jobs, rather than the number of persons employed. Persons may receive pay from a job if they are temporarily absent due to illness, bad weather, vacation, or labor-management dispute. This count is based on where the jobs are located, regardless of where the workers reside, and is therefore sometimes referred to as employment “by place of work.” Nonfarm payroll employment data are collected and compiled based on the Current Employment Statistics (CES) survey, conducted by the Vermont Department of Labor. This count was formerly referred to as nonagricultural wage and salary employment.last_img read more

Lefties vs. Righties: How we decide differently

first_imgYahoo:We like to think that we make decisions based on our ideas of right and wrong — and we do, to an extent. But according to recent research, our choices may also be influenced by something as simple as whether we’re right or left handed.That’s because right-handed people are more drawn to things on the right side of a screen or page, while left-handed people look to the left. Cognitive scientist Daniel Casasanto of The New School for Social Research says it’s part of the “body-specificity hypothesis” — the idea that our physical bodies affect the decisions we make and the way we communicate with one another.Read the whole story: Yahoolast_img read more

NP Plitvice Lakes and NP Krka donated to Unicef ​​and became guardians of childhood

first_imgOn February 23, 2016, the public institutions “Krka National Park” and “Plitvice Lakes National Park” and UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund, an international intergovernmental organization established by the UN General Assembly) and its office in Croatia concluded a grant agreement on the basis of which the Public Institution “NP Krka” will pay the amount of HRK 75.000,00 and the Public Institution “NP Plitvice Lakes” HRK 100.000,00 as a donation to UNICEF for the implementation of the early development program for children from the most vulnerable families.The aim of the program is to provide families in a difficult socio-economic situation with services that are not available to them: preschool education, services for children with disabilities, support for parents, etc. Part of the activities would be carried out at the Lika-Senj and Šibenik-Knin counties and part through UNICEF programs in other counties, where the needs of children and parents are greatest. After a record tourist season in 2015, the public institutions “Krka National Park” and “Plitvice Lakes National Park” decided to invest part of their growing annual income in programs that improve the lives of children in Croatia, with an emphasis on supporting the youngest and most vulnerable.By signing a donation agreement between JU “NP Plitvice Lakes”, JU “NP Krka” and UNICEF, public institutions join the growing family of guardians of childhood, who with their donations make sure that all children in Croatia get the opportunity to grow up healthy and happy. “It is a pleasure when the effort invested results in such great results, as it was in the last tourist season. We want to share our satisfaction and multiply the results. With numerous local initiatives and humanitarian actions, with this donation we increase good results for the benefit of the most vulnerable children throughout Croatia “, said the director of the Public Institution “Plitvice Lakes National Park” Natalija Božičević during the signing of the contract.”By preserving nature we achieve the most important part of our task, but by caring for the generations that will continue where we left off, we are investing in a common present and future. Aware of our social responsibility, we are proud partners in this project and commend the great humanitarian work that UNICEF has been successfully implementing for decades.”, Said the director of the Public Institution” Krka National Park “Krešimir Šakić.By donating to UNICEF, both institutions, which have been supporting local children’s projects for many years, are expanding the scope of child care to the entire territory of Croatia, and UNICEF is gaining a new ally to promote children’s rights, especially the most vulnerable groups. “We thank from the bottom of our hearts that both institutions that the world recognizes for the richness of natural diversity have recognized the importance of investing in children. We know that in addition to individual projects that improve children’s lives, we also need systematic and continuous investments for children living in different conditions – far from services and opportunities. For our part, we promise a sevenfold return on this investmente “, said during the signing Valentina Otmačić, head of the UNICEF office for Croatia.Research conducted in the US has shown that investments in vulnerable groups of children at an early age return to society sevenfold.last_img read more

Happy people see more value in silver and bronze Olympic medals, study finds

first_imgShare on Facebook The team was interested in the correlation between happiness and whether participants ascribed to the gold-first (only gold medals matter) or the total-medal (all medals matter) school of thought.Researchers believed happy people would be more likely to value silver and bronze medals because of a general appreciation for life.“Happy people habitually savor even small things more than unhappy people,” said Incheol Choi, corresponding author of the study.Scientists studied 106 undergraduate students at a Korean university. Participants completed a happiness and life satisfaction scale, as well as a questionnaire designed to determine whether they believed in the gold-first or total-medal philosophy.Unsurprisingly to the researchers, happy people placed more value on winning silver and bronze medals than unhappy people.“The research most relevant to the present study concerns the ways happy and unhappy people value the frequency versus intensity of positive experiences,” reported Choi.“Happy people savor little things that occur frequently, whereas unhappy people strive for intense experiences that rarely occur,” Choi continued.Though the research is revealing, it points the way to a larger question for future research.“Although our findings demonstrated that [happy people value silver and bronze medals more than unhappy people],” said Choi, “an important question still remains: why do happy people appreciate little things more than unhappy people do?” Happy people value and appreciate Olympic silver and bronze medals more than unhappy people, a recent study revealed.The study, published in June 2016 in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, examined the happiness of participants and the value they place on the three Olympic medals.The research stemmed from the competition between the United States and China during the 2008 Beijing Olympics. China earned an unprecedented 51 gold medals (compared to 36 for the United States) during the games and claimed to be the champions. However, the United States earned a total of 110 medals overall, edging out the 100 earned by China, and claimed that this was a better measure of success.

Study: Straight men in college fraternities are more likely to report having kissed another man

first_imgPinterest A study published in Sexuality & Culture has found that a substantial proportion of male college students who identify as heterosexual have kissed another man.The researchers surveyed 442 men from 11 universities across the United States. They also conducted in-depth interviews with 75 male college students. All of the participants described themselves as heterosexual.Forty percent of the participants reported having kissed another man on the cheek, while 10% reported having kissed another man on the lips. Alcohol consumption was related to kissing another man, and participants who were involved in all-male competitive sports or members of a fraternal organization were more likely to have kissed another man.“A few of the guys in the frat have been known to kiss each other when drunk, it’s become pretty normal now. We all know who the kissers are!” one participant told the researchers.The study also found that those with more favorable attitudes toward gay men were more likely to have kissed another man.Some of the participants said they did not consider kissing to be a sexual act. “I kiss [my friend] because I love him. I’m not attracted to him like that, but I do love him,” one student explained.While for others, the opposite was true. “I consider it to be an intimate thing, something I’d only do with a significant other. That crosses boundaries that aren’t anything to do with gay. I wouldn’t even do it with a female friend because that’d just be weird,” a participant told researchers.The findings indicate that “same-sex kissing between men is a behavior that can be engaged in while maintaining a heterosexual identity at these universities,” the researchers concluded.The study, “A Mixed-Method Study of Same-Sex Kissing Among College-Attending Heterosexual Men in the U.S.“, was authored by Eric Anderson, Matthew Ripley, and Mark McCormack.

Man United player’s agent was in Germany on Tuesday for transfer…

first_imgIn March of this year, Tahith Chong ended speculation around his future by signing a new contract at Manchester United. The winger hasn’t featured for the Red Devils since committing himself to the Premier League giants.His chances of featuring regularly for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will further reduce if United end up signing Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.A loan move this summer would help the 20-year-old feature regularly for the upcoming season. According to WESER-KURIER, SV Werder Bremen are interested in the Dutchman.Embed from Getty ImagesThe German club are expected to part ways with Milot Rashica, and are looking to bring in a replacement for the Kosovo international.Chong has been identified as one of the candidates and this is confirmed by Werder Bremen chief Frank Baumann.“He is very fast, a real flank player and his profile fits [our requirement]. We can add two or three more players [who fit the profile],” said Baumann.Werder Bremen’s financial situation has been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis, and therefore, taking Chong on loan would be an interesting prospect for them.“Borrowing players from top clubs like this can make sense to us. Because of our situation, he’s a player who could be interesting,” Baumann added.WESER-KURIER claim Werder Bremen are not the only club interested in Chong, and that could be a ‘problem’ for them in signing the United player. They don’t provide details of other clubs interested in Chong.According to Bild, Chong’s representatives, Mohammed Sinouh and Roy Rajber, were in Bremen on Tuesday for transfer talks, and Werder Bremen’s head of scouting Clemens Fritz was also present during the discussions.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏!来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
