FEVEREIRO DE 2019 MARCOU uma data muito especial para a vinícola Opus One, a célebre propriedade californiana que nasceu da junção de esforços do Barão Philippe de Rothschild e Robert Mondavi, dois dos maiores nomes do vinho de todos os tempos. E essa data marcante deveu-se uma prova monumental com então todas as safras de Opus One da história, realizada pela primeira vez fora da vinícola. Onde? No Brasil. Desde então, os gestores de Opus One ficaram mais atentos ao mercado brasileiro. Laurent Delassus, vice-presidente de marketing da vinícola do Napa – que estava presente naquela degustação –, conta que passaram a estudar o mercado para entender como poderiam ser melhor representados, pois talvez o sistema de négociants (como Opus One é tradicionalmente distribuído em quase todo o mundo) não fosse…

NOVO TBM 960 A francesa Daher lançou mais um turbo-hélice derivado da família TBM. O avião, designado TBM 960, recebeu o novo motor PT6E-66XT da Pratt & Whitney Canada, integrado ao chamado e-throttle e a controles digitais de gerenciamento, assim como controle aprimorado de cabine, sistema ambiental renovador, iluminação ambiente de LED e janelas com regulação elétrica. A maior mudança em relação ao antecessor, o TBM 940, está no motor PT6E-66XT, que conta com controle eletrônico de duplo canal (EPECS, na sigla em inglês). Além disso, o avião recebeu uma hélice pentapá Raptor produzida em material composto pela Hartzell Propeller. Graças ao EPECS, o acionamento do PT6E-66XT é gerenciado por computadores e exige apenas um switch para ser dada a partida. O e-throttle, com manete único, também facilita a operação e…

10 LITTLE-KNOWN iPHONE FEATURES THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND

Watch someone else use their iPhone for a few minutes, and you’ll quickly discover that they do a lot of things quite differently than you. You might discover some interactions you’ve never seen before, and you probably have a lot of suggestions for them. It’s not surprising that the average iPhone user doesn’t use many of its best features. Modern smartphones have grown into enormously powerful and complex devices, and unless you pay close attention, you’re going to be simply unaware of all they can do. So let’s learn some new ones. Here are 10 iPhone tips and features that a surprisingly large percentage of users seem to be completely unaware of. These tips should work on most modern iPhones (those made within the last few years) and they assume you’re…

Covid catastrophe

APRIL 14TH was a big day in India. Hindus and Sikhs gathered to mark the new year. Many Muslims celebrated the first day of Ramadan at late-night feasts with friends and family. In Haridwar, a temple town that this year hosts the Kumbh Mela, an intermittent Hindu festival that is the world’s biggest religious gathering, between 1m and 3m people shoved and jostled to take a ritual dip in the Ganges. And across the country, the number of people testing positive for covid-19 for the first time surpassed 200,000 in a single day. It has continued to surge since, reaching 315,000 just one week later—the highest daily figure in any country at any point during the pandemic. Deaths, too, are beginning to soar, and suspicions abound that the grisly official…

LESSONS FROM MY MENTORS

One of the common questions I get in my inbox from Cloudbase Mayhem listeners is about finding a mentor. Bill Belcourt, who is nearly everyone’s mentor who flies in the Intermountain West (as I do) was recently interviewed by this magazine as part of their Masterclass series and spoke about what to look for in a mentor and how to find one. When I look back at my own career in this sport there have been many people who seemed to almost magically appear at the right time and place to help me progress. Listening to Bill in his masterclass allowed me to take a little closer look at the ‘magic’ and identify the most important things I’ve learned over the years from my own mentors. What makes a mentor? First, let’s recap…

A simplicidade do capuchinhos

NO SÉCULO XVI, UM FRADE italiano decidiu que queria voltar às origens do pensamento e ações do fundador de sua ordem monástica, ou seja, São Francisco de Assis. Sua ideia era viver como eremita e imitar o estilo de vida que o santo levou durante sua vida e serviu de exemplo para outros clérigos. Assim nasceu a ordem dos Capuchinhos, até hoje reconhecida por suas roupas simples e especialmente pelo capuz. Foram esses monges que, em 1612, criaram o Domaine Weinbach (“riacho do vinho”, em homenagem ao pequeno riacho que o atravessa) nas costas da colina Schlossberg, um dos mais aclamados vinhedos da Alsácia, não muito distante de Colmar. A propriedade, no entanto, já ostentava vinhas antes mesmo de o mosteiro ser erguido. As primeiras menções são do ano 890, quando…

Family Meal

RECIPE DEVELOPER Ali Slagle was a self-proclaimed “never-breaster” who only tolerated chicken breasts when they were breaded and fried schnitzel style. Then she developed a method for crackly-skinned, juicy roast breasts that has quickly earned a spot in her regular rotation. Preheating the skillet before adding the chicken jump-starts the browning process; the bones provide a buffer that protects the meat from drying out as the skin gets golden. Use the leftover drippings to make any kind of side, from sautéed greens to warm salad dressing to the herby peas and croutons shown here. Lemony Tortellini Soup With Spinach Similar to Greek avgolemono, this soup gets its silkiness from a mixture of eggs and lemon juice, making this dish comforting yet light RECIPE BY SARAH JAMPEL 4 SERVINGS 1 Tbsp. plus 1½ tsp. vegetable or chicken…

UM PLANO PARA A AVIAÇÃO GERAL

UM PLANO PARA A AVIAÇÃO GERAL

Grandes expectativas vieram com a chegada da Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (Anac) em 2006, que retirou do então Departamento de Aviação Civil (DAC), subordinado à Força Aérea Brasileira, as funções de regulamentar e fiscalizar a parte “solo” de um sistema que contava com mais de 60 anos de tradição e havia ajudado a consolidar não só um grande mercado interno para as empresas do transporte aéreo regular como, também, a segunda maior aviação geral do mundo. Assim, buscando nortear um dos ramos mais sensíveis de nossa economia, que também é responsável pela integração nacional e internacional do país, no ano de 2009, o governo federal editou um decreto (6.780/2009) com o qual lançava a Política Nacional de Aviação Civil, o PNAC. Se seguiram às discussões em torno do PNAC o…

Si hablamos de testosterona, pensamos en la hormona que da vigor sexual al hombre. Pero… resulta que los ovarios femeninos también la producen y que tenerla en niveles adecuados a nosotras nos influye mucho más de lo que podamos pensar. Ayuda al equilibrio hormonal femenino Como explica el doctor Antonio Hernández (@dr.ahernandez), médico especialista en Medicina Estética y Antienvejecimiento y autor de Testosterona, la hormona de la vida (Ed. Alienta), “los ovarios y la cápsula suprarrenal son capaces de liberar a lo largo de toda la vida pequeñas cantidades de testosterona”. Muy influyente. Esta hormona es “crucial para muchas funciones fisiológicas de la mujer”, explica el especialista, quien asegura que “el sistema cardiovascular, inmune, metabólico, óseo o sexual (de la mujer) dependen íntimamente de unas concentraciones adecuadas de testosterona, que tienen que estar…

BY 7AM A long queue stretches around the medical centre near the Plaza de la Revolución in Havana. Some of those waiting have been there for hours; all are hoping to be volunteers to test Soberana-2 (Sovereign-2), Cuba’s most advanced covid-19 vaccine candidate, which is in phase-three clinical trials. At 8am sharp, the first 40 are admitted into two large rooms, given rapid lateral-flow tests and told what to expect if they are recruited as volunteers. Yosvany Rodríguez Muñoz, a 37-year-old doorman, is one of the lucky ones. Staff at the clinic measure his height, weight and blood pressure before giving him an appointment for the next day. After 28 days he will get a second dose. Cuba is small, with just 11m people, and is short of basic goods such…

FRENCH EARNED FAME IN THE 1980S AS THE LEAD GUITARIST FOR TRANSVESTITE METAL BAND TWISTED SISTER, WHICH PRODUCED SOME OF THE MOST RECOGNIZABLE—AND WIDELY LICENSED—ROCK MUSIC IN HISTORY: “WE’RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT.” “I WANNA ROCK.” These days, French stays busy in other ways. He has a podcast in which he chats with other musicians, members of the music industry, and miscellaneous folks. He’s a Beatles scholar with an impressive cache of Beatles records and memorabilia—he seems to have kept everything, in pristine condition—and writes a column about the Beatles for Goldmine magazine. He’s also a passionate audiophile. The book—Twisted Business: Lessons from My Life in Rock’n’Roll—is not just another rock’n’roll memoir. It’s a business book,…

Going the Distance

It’s 2:45 p.m. on an unseasonably balmy Tuesday in December, and Minneapolis City Hall is eerily quiet. There’s no municipal bustle—only empty halls and the click of my boot heels on marble steps. Among the only two people I see outside, in a still-desolate, mid-pandemic stretch of downtown, is a protester wielding a drum, wearing a vest scrawled with BLM and NLM (Native Lives Matter). Just down the street is the Hennepin County Courthouse where, last April, Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of second-degree murder for taking George Floyd’s life. I wonder if the stillness here is actually the calm after the storm. Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey breaks the silence in his corner office. “Hi, I’m Jacob,” Frey booms, as much as one can through a KN95 mask. Introducing…

IN THE GROOVES

in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, condo buyers are willing to pay a premium for terraces and gardens. That’s good news for Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu, designers of a new building in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn where every unit has at least two balconies and where front doors open onto shaded outdoor walkways. Despite prices in the millions, listings are nearly sold out, and the developer is working with Idenburg and Liu on two more buildings like it. Meanwhile, in another part of Brooklyn, a cluster of gallery buildings has become an architecture pilgrimage site just months after it opened. The East Williamsburg complex, called Amant, uses brick, concrete, and aluminum in surprising ways, creating textures that visitors—many of them architects—can’t resist touching. Some days the walls get…

TALES FROM THE TOWPATH

‘WHAT IS happening to our libraries?’ This question has long preoccupied Heather Peak Morison, an artist who’s worked with her partner, Ivan, since 2003, typically on ambitious projects that converse with landscape, community and history. So when Laurie Peake, director of the Super Slow Way, an arts commissioning programme in Pennine Lancashire, invited the duo to create a work on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, they thought of realising a space that would offer short stories, along with a place to read and write them, to people along the waterway. The resulting work, Small Bells Ring, is a public floating library housed in the research vessel Furor Scribendi, a narrowboat designed, decorated and furnished by the artists, which can hold around 1,000 volumes of short stories. The boat has spent…

FINAL WORD THE WONDER STUFF

Bicycles are tremendous things. On that we can, I hope, agree. The design, largely unchanged in well over a century, is ungainly and confusing (at least to me), but seems, miraculously, to work. The legs push down on the pedals. The cranks turn, and via some magical interaction with a series of cogs, the two wheels move along the road taking with them the human being sitting on a tiny little seat. I think that just about sums it up. So tremendous are they, that I decided to use one in order to move myself from my home in south east London to the television studio in Maidstone, which ITV was using as a remote base for its coverage of the Tour de France. This necessitated pumping my tyres, filling my…

AS THEY CELEBRATE A MILESTONE OF MARRIED LIFE THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE CONTINUE THE WORK OF THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH ON THEIR FIRST ENGAGEMENT SINCE HIS FUNERAL

Ahead of their tenth wedding anniversary this week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a special visit to highlight the legacy of the Duke of Edinburgh. Four days after the funeral of Prince Philip, William and Kate met air cadets in East London and smiled as they raised their caps and gave three cheers in his memory. On the command: “Three cheers for His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh,” the cadets gave a rousing: “Hip, hip, hooray!” Although still in a period of royal mourning until the following day, the Queen gave the couple special permission to visit the 282 (East Ham) Squadron, Air Training Corps (ATC) in East London in honour of her husband, who served as Air Commodore-in-Chief of the ATC for 63 years. Philip handed over the reins to…

IMADÉ NIBOKUM IMPACT Created Depressed While Black, an online community turned nonprofit that donates Black-affirming personal care items to psychiatric patients and helps people find Black therapists. Nibokum used to think depression was a “White person’s disease.” She says, “My mom raised us to believe that Black people are strong; we don’t get depression. And prayer is how we cope—not therapy or medication.” Then, in graduate school she had symptoms of severe depression and borderline personality disorder, with multiple suicide attempts. A therapist eventually helped her get better. This inspired her to create Depressed While Black, an online community and blog to share experiences through the Black lens and show that, yes, Black people can get depressed and deserve care, and connect them to Black mental health professionals. DWB is also a nonprofit…

THE NEW VITAL SIGNS

THE NEW VITAL SIGNS

NEW VITAL SIGN #1: HEART-RATE RECOVERY CAN TELL YOU ABOUT: HEART HEALTH Your body’s ability to ferry oxygen to your muscles during exercise—known as cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF)—is such a powerful predictor of how long you’ll live that the American Heart Association has suggested making it an official vital sign. The gold standard for measuring CRF is a VO2-max test (in an exercise lab or with a fancy watch). But there’s a way to estimate it easily and track its progress at home, says L.A.–based trainer Matt Berenc, C.S.C.S. TEST IT: Check your heart-rate recovery. The fitter and healthier your heart is, the more quickly it adapts to the demands of exercise and the faster it slows down when you’re done. So right after intense exercise, stop and check your heart rate. Check it again…

AS THE BODY count grew, Sharon Peacock, a microbiologist at the University of Cambridge, gathered a team to bid for state funding. Sir Patrick Vallance, Britain’s chief scientific adviser, quickly saw the potential of a new genetic-sequencing network, run by academics, and handed her £20m ($27m) in March 2020. Others did not. Some thought it “a massive stamp-collecting exercise,” which would prove of little real-world use, says Professor Peacock. Yet by the year’s end, Britain was doing more sequencing of the covid-19 genome than the rest of the world combined, allowing it to track mutations and work out their impact on transmission. Few people today call it a stamp-collecting exercise. The British government believed its pandemic preparations were among the world’s best. That turned out to be nonsense, but the country’s…

Beats Fit Pro: Better than AirPods Pro

Apple just started selling a new AirPods Pro model that is cheaper, sounds a little better, fits a lot better, and even has physical buttons and comes in several colors. They even cost less! Only Apple did all this under its other headphone brand, Beats, with the new Fit Pro. While these don’t have everything the AirPod Pro do (wireless charging is absent), they are better in most ways and for most people. Simply put, if you think you might want to buy AirPods Pro, you should buy these instead. In fact, those considering the 3rd-gen AirPods might even want to spend a little more for these. ANYTHING YOU CAN DO… Apple purchased Beats back in 2014, and within a few years it was making Beats headphones that use its own W1 and…

Estuvimos buscando algo más de un año hasta que dimos con este. El piso necesitaba actualizarse, la distribución se podía mantener, pero le hicimos una reforma integral con la interiorista Natalia Gil. Como siempre decimos, ella dio a nuestra casa todo lo que le pedimos: mucho almacenaje, incluido un pequeño armario trastero en la entrada, una cocina grande donde poder hacer vida y mucha luz. El piso tiene forma de U y mide 130 m2 . Inicialmente, tenía un gran distribuidor de 10m2 y un salón dividido en dos partes de unos 30m2 . A continuación estaba la cocina, no…

NO TIME TO DIE

SEAN CONNERY The first reference to a specific Bond watch was made in Ian Fleming’s second book, Live and Let Die, in 1954. It was a Rolex. Fleming himself also wore one, more specifically an Explorer I. So it was no surprise when Sean Connery sported a Rolex in the very first Bond film Dr No, an early Submariner 6538, also known as the ‘Big Crown’ due to its very prominent winding crown. First produced by the company in 1955, and only manufactured for four years, this watch has become known as the James Bond Submariner. The highly collectable 6538 was also worn by Connery in From Russia with Love and Goldfinger. Good condition examples of this limited edition watch have sold for over £400,000 at auction.

Iran has rigged its election to favour a hardliner. Voters may stay at home IT IS PROBABLY a bad sign when one of the few memorable moments in a presidential debate is an admission that the ballot is rigged. The candidates in Iran’s spent much of the televised event, held on June 8th, criticising an incumbent who is not even on the ballot. Perhaps they felt there was little to discuss: most are hand-picked conservatives put there to lose. It fell to Mohsen Mehralizadeh, a former provincial governor of little note, to point out the obvious. The regime, he said, had aligned “sun, moon and the heavens to make one particular person the president”. There are no free elections in Iran, where clerics wield ultimate authority and candidates may be disqualified for…

Bullitt with GT350 Wings

This year marks the return of the Mach 1 badge, which adorns the fenders of a new special-edition Mustang focused on lap times. Think of it as a replacement for the discontinued GT350, Bullitt, and GT Performance Package Level 2. Those cars provide many of the Mach 1’s track-focused parts, but don’t get your hopes up—the GT350’s 8250-rpm screamer isn’t among them. This Mach 1 has the Bullitt’s 480-hp 5.0-liter V-8, making it 20 horses stronger than the regular-grade GT. What the Mach 1 does get from the GT350 is a Tremec six-speed manual transmission (instead of the GT’s Getrag box). A track-ready suspension, complete with adaptive magnetorheological dampers, bolts to front and rear subframes borrowed from the GT350, while the GT’s Performance-package brake hardware—15.0-inch front rotors pinched by six-piston calipers—puts…

THE PLEASURES OF THE TABLE

How restaurants came to be and how the pandemic may change them APRIL 9th 2020 was the restaurant industry’s darkest day. The imposition of lockdowns to slow the spread of covid-19, combined with people voluntarily avoiding others, meant that on that Thursday bookings in America, Australia, Britain, Canada, Germany, Ireland and Mexico via OpenTable, a restaurant-reservation website, normally in their millions, fell to zero. Now, as economies unlock, many restaurants, even the fanciest, are facing labour shortages. Le Gavroche, one of London’s swankiest French offerings, has had to stop its lunch service and has lost its general manager. Covid brought to a halt an astonishing expansion. In 2010-19 the number of licensed restaurants in Britain grew by 26%. Americans were, for the first time, spending more than half their total food budget…

Segundos vinhos

ACREDITA-SE QUE OS PRIMEIROS “segundos vinhos” das propriedades bordalesas tenham surgido ainda no século XVII. Um dos primeiros registros oficiais, de 1792, contudo, aponta que o gerente do Château Latour escreveu que uma nova parcela poderia produzir um “bom segundo vinho dentro sete a oito anos”. Oficialmente, porém, o Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande criou um segundo vinho em 1874, que foi enviado para a Exposição de Moscou. Em 1902, Léoville Las Cases lançou o “Clos du Marquis”, que mais tarde se tornou uma marca separada. O Pavillon Rouge de Margaux, do Château Margaux, surgiu em 1908. Esses são alguns dos mais antigos, mas foi na década de 1980 que os segundos vinhos proliferaram à medida que os preços dos principais rótulos de Bordeaux começaram a aumentar. Muito disso também se deveu…

EVOLUÇÃO CONTÍNUA

O PC-12 surgiu em meados dos anos 1990 como um projeto inovador tanto para o segmento de monoturboélices como para a própria Pilatus, o fabricante suíço que, na época, tinha mais de cinco décadas de experiência em projetos aeronáuticos de alto rendimento. O programa era tão robusto quanto avançado ao mesmo tempo que contava com soluções simples, com objetivo de permitir operações em locais sem infraestrutura de solo, incluindo áreas remotas. O modelo logo se tornou uma referência no segmento, no caso, inaugurando um nicho de mercado que estava restrito ao também recém-lançado TBM 700. Desde então, o programa PC-12 recebeu uma série de melhorias e modernizações, sem, no entanto, perder a essência de um avião versátil, com amplo espaço interno, fácil de pilotar e com elevada velocidade de cruzeiro.

Pinot do sul

UMA TERRA DE GEOGRAFIA impressionante com montanhas, lagos e vales profundos. A região de Central Otago, no sul da ilha sul da Nova Zelândia é conhecida por produzir alguns dos melhores Pinot Noir do mundo fora da Borgonha e, obviamente, por suas paisagens fascinantes. É uma das regiões vinícolas mais meridionais do planeta e uma das mais extremas. O vinho em Central Otago é cultivado e produzido na região desde a corrida do ouro da década de 1860. Jean Desire Feraud, um garimpeiro francês, comprou terras perto de Clyde e ergueu um pequeno edifício de pedra em Monte Christo. Dali surgiam os primeiros vinhos de Central Otago. Em 1881, Feraud ganhou a primeira medalha de ouro da região com seu “Borgonha”, em uma feira de Sydney, na Austrália. No final do século XIX,…

Around 20 people were arrested in Jordan on charges of plotting against the crown. Prince Hamzah, a half-brother of the king and former heir apparent, was confined to a palace outside Amman. No evidence of an actual plot was shared by the authorities. Prince Hamzah has been a vocal critic of the government. From detention he released a video in which he assailed it for alleged corruption and repression, though he later pledged his loyalty to King Abdullah. Israel's president gave Binyamin Netanyahu the first crack at forming a government. The prime minister’s party won the most seats in an election last month, but his coalition is short of a majority. An Iranian cargo ship anchored off Yemen was damaged by an explosion. Iran says the ship is a civilian one providing…

La couleur en écho.

La première fois que nous croisons le travail de l’artiste franco-suédois Eric Magassa, c’est à Göteborg, ville portuaire à l’ouest de la Suède, à l’occasion de la Biennale d’art contemporain. Son installation Walking with Shadows à›Franska Tomten,›un mur long de 60›mètres peint en rose et bleu vif, balisé de peintures, photographies et collages, nous aimante instantanément. Un grand tirage en particulier attire notre attention : un personnage masqué, mi-cartoon›avec ses deux grands yeux ronds interrogateurs, mi-figure traditionnelle avec sa robe au motif rappelant les pagnes africains, semble inviter au voyage. C’est un autoportrait de l’artiste à Dakar, issu de la série›The Lost Series. Au fil du mur, les statues africaines s’animent, filtrées, déhanchées. Les papiers découpés, tels des spasmes colorés, se baladent de toiles en tirages et créent un ping-pong…

Nel Chelsea Arts District, fulcro del mercato internazionale dell'arte con oltre duecento gallerie, la torre di Norman Foster ha aggiunto un nuovo tassello allo stile di abitare nella New York di oggi. Solo diciannove piani di lussi contemporanei – dal servizio di valet parking al centro fitness – per quarantaquattro residenze che beneficiano di spettacolari affacci sull'Hudson River e sul distretto di Midtown, punteggiato dai grattacieli della Grande Mela.

AVIAÇÃO REGULAR X TÁXI-AÉREO

Um desastre aéreo choca e faz furor. Quando o acidente acontece com uma aeronave de táxi-aéreo – o que implica, frequentemente, na morte de celebridades, atraindo muito interesse do público –, o debate em torno da segurança de aeronaves fretadas volta à tona. Em poucas oportunidades, porém, há tempo ou espaço para que o tema seja abordado com a devida profundidade. Diante da complexidade do assunto, decidimos esmiuçá--lo uma pouco mais para tentar responder esta pergunta retórica: afinal, os “aviões pequenos” são menos seguros do que “aviões grandes”? É claro que isso depende de uma série de fatores, incluindo as próprias circunstâncias, mas há considerações que podem ser feitas sobre os padrões de segurança dos serviços aéreos de interesse público, ou seja, de empresas de linha aérea e táxis--aéreos.

Whether it’s using leaked info from website breaches to hack into your other accounts or holding your personal computer ransom for money, malicious evildoers won’t hesitate to ruin your day if it puts profits in their pockets, as evidenced by the massive Kaseya ransomware attack that brought over a thousand businesses to their knees. All is not lost, however. Following some basic security principles can help protect you from most of the attacks you’ll find on the World Wild Web.

LEDERNIER AMOUR DEMITTERRAND

C’EST UNE HISTOIRE INCROYABLE. Inattendue, à tous égards. D’abord, parce que l’on pensait tout savoir — ou presque — de Mitterrand. Ensuite, parce que l’on imagine mal, aujourd’hui, une romance au long cours (et secrète !) entre une jeune femme et un président de la République en exercice. Enfin, parce que c’est elle qui l’a voulu, qui l’a cherché, pourchassé même. À rebours des a priori et des clichés. Claire (beau pseudo, pour une femme de l’ombre) a entretenu une relation avec François Mitterrand pendant huit ans, de 1988 à 1996. Les années ont passé. Et il aura fallu dix ans à la journaliste politique du « Monde » Solenn de Royer pour la convaincre de se livrer. « Le Dernier Secret » (éd. Grasset, sortie le 6 octobre), projet…

How damaging has the Afghanistan withdrawal been to Joe Biden’s presidency? THE BEGINNING of September marked the end of America’s 20-year campaign in Afghanistan. It also marked the end of President Joe Biden’s worst month in office. The electorate’s mood had soured on the intervention a long time ago: ending the “forever wars” was a campaign promise both of Mr Biden and of Donald Trump. Even so, many Americans were appalled once the immediate consequences of withdrawal became visible. They included the swift collapse of the Afghan government, the scenes of human tragedy during the evacuation at Kabul airport and the Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP) suicidebombing soon afterwards that killed at least 180 people, including 13 American soldiers. As for Mr Biden, he would like to turn to the next…

HOW TO DO A GOOD GLIDE TEST

We have all seen the videos of two gliders flying next to each other, and one ends up higher than the other. It’s very tempting to draw the conclusion that the glider that ends up the highest has the best performance, but often this is not the case. This is because there is so much more than just glider performance to take into account, and the other factors can make the same difference in glide performance. Here is a quick list of the most important factors affecting glide performance: 1. Glider 2. Harness 3. Pilot skill 4. Air conditions 5. Pilot position 6. Wing loading 7. Glider size Also we should not forget the trim of the glider lines and the condition of the cloth. Let’s go though each of these points in a bit more detail. The glider Two gliders of the…

ON TEST… CyberGhost VPN ExpressVPN NordVPN Private Internet Access TunnelBear Windscribe A VIRTUAL PRIVATE Network (VPN) exists to make it harder, if not impossible, to identify both you and your location online. When switched on, a VPN encrypts all the data you send to the internet to hide your activity from your internet provider and your location from whichever website or internet service you’re using. It also protects you when surfing through Wi–Fi networks, protected or open. Technically, only the VPN knows what you’re doing, so it’s important that it promises to keep no personally identifiable logs of your activities, either for its own benefit or if subpoenaed by a government agency. In this roundup, we’ve taken six of the leading VPN providers and tested them for all the key things you need from a VPN: privacy, security, performance,…

RED DOT SIGHTS are trending because they are easy to use, fast and accurate. They have the added benefit of being friendly on aging eyes that might struggle to focus on a tiny front sight post. Combine these attributes with long battery life and rugged construction and it is no surprise why miniature optical sights are so popular. Invented in 1974, the Aimpoint Electronic was the first electronic red-dot sight, and the company continues to lead this segment. My first exposure to Aimpoint products was as a young infantry officer in the 82nd Airborne Division. My issued M4 was equipped with an Aimpoint M68 CCO, the U.S. Army’s nomenclature for the CompM2. I beat the hell out of that sight on an almost daily basis. My abuse didn’t occur deliberately, it’s…

Coliac’s unique and irreverent approach blends with the craft skills and values of a historic brand like Saucony Originals. The partnership prompted me to create elegant and unique pieces.” This is how Coliac shoe designer Martina Grasselli describes her partnership with the sneaker brand Saucony Originals, achieved with the creative support of Vogue Talents. Jazz Court, the newest of the models presented in 2021 to enrich its already huge range, is inspired by the world of tennis. Grasselli has reinterpreted it by infusing it with Coliac’s typical eclecticism.

TEARS FOR FEARS BUILD SONGS FROM THE BIG CHAIR

Roland Orzabal: Our first band Graduate [formed in Bath in 1978] was an adolescent attempt to be fashionable, playing Mod powerpop. We loved 2 Tone and The Jam, but my songwriting hadn’t developed enough. Adjacent to this was the inspiration for the name Tears For Fears, namely Arthur Janov, a Californian psychologist famous for primal scream theory, which John Lennon did for six months. Curt Smith: Roland and I both came from broken homes, raised by our mothers. The rest of Graduate didn’t share our inner demons, and the idea of writing with the depth we were now talking about was alien to them. RO: There was a massive shift in pop: Gary Numan was Number 1, that was literally a Copernican inversion. [In 1981] we met Ian Stanley who owned a…

The best Apple Pencil alternatives

A an iPad can unleash your creativity, but for the optimal experience, you want a stylus. The first–gen Apple Pencil and its more recent sibling, the Apple Pencil 2, will always be the best styluses for iPads, but not everyone wants to pay the steep price for them. That’s why there are so many third–party Apple Pencil alternatives out there that are just as good, but at a fraction of the price. The biggest selling feature of the Apple Pencil 2 is its wireless charging on newer iPads, and its pressure sensitivity, which you need for digital art. But if you don’t mind not having those features, then the savings are really worth it.

A GUERRA PELO AR

Ainvasão da Ucrânia pela Rússia impressionou pela velocidade com que as tropas de Moscou avançaram até Kiev, mas também pela capacidade das forças ucranianas de resistir aos primeiros dias de confronto. Analistas militares de todo o mundo chamam a atenção para o baixo desempenho da força aérea russa, que, mesmo com poder incontestável, não obteve superioridade aérea nos primeiros dias de batalha. No início do conflito, a Ucrânia contava com pelo menos 90 caças, sendo 35 MiG-29 (oito dos quais usados para treinamento), doze Su-24, de quinze a dezessete Su-35 e entre 28 e 32 Su-27, todos modelos de primeira geração jamais modernizados. Ainda assim, a força aérea ucraniana, com poucos recursos e o país sob ataque, conseguiu realizar algumas surtidas contra tropas e aeronaves russas. A surpresa foi tamanha que diversos…

Politics Russia’s invasion of Ukraine appeared to have stalled, with Russian forces making few territorial advances. The invaders continued to bombard Ukrainian cities indiscriminately, leading to increasing reports of civilian casualties. The International Committee of the Red Cross warned of a “devastating humanitarian crisis”, although some noncombatants did manage to escape the port of Mariupol and other besieged locations. In peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, both sides suggested that there had been some progress. Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, implied that Ukraine might have to give up its ambition to join NATO, but said that his country would seek strong alternative security guarantees. Vladimir Putin, his Russian counterpart, continued to rail against the “Nazis” and “criminals” running Ukraine, calling into question the sincerity of the negotiations.

Priorado de Lichine

QUANDO ALEXIS LICHINE ADQUIRIU o Château Prieuré-Cantenac em 1951, a propriedade ostentava um vinho Quatrième Cru de Bordeaux, mas estava reduzida a poucas vinhas, bastante decadentes, e nada lembrava sua antiga glória. Foi seu inigualável ímpeto que levou o Château, rebatizado como Prieuré-Lichine, a ser novamente reconhecido no mundo. O local, antigamente base de um priorado, tornou-se seu santuário, sua casa, onde o “papa dos vinhos” morreria em 1989. Lichine tinha 76 anos quando faleceu. Nascido em 1913, era filho de um rico banqueiro de São Petersburgo. Sua família fugiu da Rússia durante a revolução de 1917, indo primeiro para a América e depois para a França. Depois de trabalhar em vendas de publicidade para a edição francesa do New York Herald Tribune em Paris e também em Argel, ele seguiu…

QUESTIONING THE VALIDITY of the miniature red-dot sight on sidearms is sometimes a touchy subject. To further address the question, I think we must be open to discuss the good, the bad and the ugly realities of living with a pistol having a red-dot sight mounted. The pros and cons are mostly fact, but strong opinions are unavoidable. I’ve trained thousands of military personnel, law officers, federal agents and law-abiding citizens. My opinions are derived from these experiences. Some of my real-life data comes from my experiences, some has been passed on to me from other trainers or students in the form of lessons learned; we don’t need to repeat others’ mistakes. Can you shoot more accurately with a red dot on your pistol? This is an easy question to confirm: Absolutely. With…

Psychology of stargazing

Psychology of stargazing

Glenn has been an avid observer since a friend showed him Saturn through a small backyard scope in 1963. This month, we’re going to step away from our usual observing content and instead take a look at the psychology of skygazing. In short, we’ll ruminate on what makes us backyard astronomers tick. Why do we prefer reading Astronomy to, say, Field & Stream, Better Homes and Gardens, or Popular Mechanics? What compels us go outside on a clear starlit evening and gaze heavenward while our neighbors are indoors watching TV or playing games? I used to think a proclivity for backyard astronomy had to do with a love of the outdoors. That might be because my three favorite activities are stargazing, fishing, and recreational running. All involve being out in open air,…

According to a source, Kourtney — who looked gorgeous in a flowy, backless black dress — was blown away by Barker’s picture-perfect setup. “Travis spent forever getting the details just right,” reveals the source. “Kourtney was very surprised and cried tears of joy. This is the happiest she’s ever been.” Well-wishes from fellow celebrities and family members quickly rolled in.

MASTERING YOUR GROUND CONTROL

MASTERING YOUR GROUND CONTROL

I have developed a set of exercises to learn various important facets of groundhandling. The tasks teach you about your brake inputs, body weight connection with the wing, and enhance your balance and muscle memory. There are things that you can do on the ground that really improve your flying. What you’re trying to achieve is to improve your launch confidence, so when you get to the launch site you can really command your wing. That puts you in a strong mental place for flying. How to do it Find a sloping field that’s got clean airflow, not the school field in the town, because wind strong enough to kite in will become super turbulent. Try a beach or an exposed flat hilltop instead. Use your normal harness with protection, gloves and a…

A famous beauty spot since the 19th century, the glacial fjord Carlingford Lough cuts deep into the eastern coast of Ireland midway between Belfast and Dublin, marking the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. At its inner end is the village of Omeath. Here, overlooking the lough and the cloud-swept Mountains of Mourne, is what looks like a simple woodplanked fisherman’s shack. Step inside, though, and you enter an entirely different world. For this is the home away from home of Ciaran McGuigan, creative director of Irish furniture company Orior, and his American wife, Logann. “I just love the space here,” McGuigan says, “the energy you get from walking out of the door, being right on the waterfront and seeing that amazing view.” It’s a view he grew up with…

O tradicional festival norte-americano Sun ’n Fun, que ocorre anualmente, desde 1974, na ensolarada cidade de Lakeland, na Flórida, teve em sua edição de 2022 um brilho diferente das feiras anteriores. Considerando as restrições do último evento, no ano passado, esta edição marcou a flexibilização das barreiras sanitárias e o retorno dos estrangeiros após a diminuição dos casos de covid-19 nos Estados Unidos. Uma multidão de apaixonados pela aviação pôde acompanhar sete dias de um grandioso encontro aeronáutico. Aviões de diversos modelos ocuparam quase que a totalidade dos espaços disponíveis tanto na grama do aeroporto como, também, sobre a pista 05-23, com 1.525 metros de extensão, tomada pelo menos em grande parte para acomodar o público.

STAR TIME FOR MICKEY GUYTON A Black female country artist makes her long-in-the-making debut By JONATHAN BERNSTEIN Mickey Guyton Remember Her Name CAPITOL NASHVILLE IN 2015, Mickey Guyton debuted with the ballad “Better Than You Left Me,” a moving slice of post-breakup affirmation that became a minor hit. Over the next half-dozen years, her career became stalled by a series of false starts, disappointments, and industry misjudgments in country music, a genre historically walled-off to Black artists — even more so for Black women. Guyton, 38, changed her course last year, establishing herself as an impossible-to-ignore voice with singles like “What Are You Gonna Tell Her” and “Black Like Me,” declarative statements that insisted on foregrounding, rather than suppressing, the Texas-born singer’s penchant for aspirational truth-telling. Both of those songs are included in Remember Her Name, Guyton’s 10-years-in-the-making…

The Porsche 911 will go electric – in two giant leaps. We unveil Porsche’s plan to save its defining model. First we’ll see the hybrid 911, the 994, then the full-electric 998-gen car before the end of the decade. Porsche’s plan for the 911’s electrification is a bold transformation strategy – with plenty of imponderables. Like which type of battery to use, how to package it, and what shape to choose for minimum drag with maximum 911-ness. This story is a work in progress – progress that began in the last decade. While we tapped a variety of sources to shed light on the means and the end, a lot can change between now and 2028. But the wheels are in motion – as they must be. As Michael Steiner, Porsche’s R&D…

How rotten is Russia’s army?

THE MIGHT of the modern Russian army was supposed to show the world that President Vladimir Putin had restored his country to greatness after the humiliation of the Soviet collapse. Instead, poor progress and heavy losses in Ukraine have exposed deep flaws within Russia. For those threatened by Mr Putin’s aggression, a diminished army is a relief. Unfortunately, it also leaves a nuclear-armed power with a point to prove. So far, the invasion of Ukraine has been a disaster for Russia’s armed forces. About 15,000 troops have been killed in two months of fighting, according to Britain’s government. At least 1,600 armoured vehicles have been destroyed, along with dozens of aircraft and the flagship of the Black Sea fleet. The assault on the capital, Kyiv, was a chaotic failure. Leon Trotsky wrote…

Politics Protests in Colombia raged on, despite the scrapping of an unpopular tax reform that had sparked them and the resignation of the finance minister who championed it. The government responded harshly; the protesters became increasingly violent in turn. At least 24 people have died and more than 800 civilians and police officers have been injured. El Salvador’s president, Nayib Bukele, once again displayed his authoritarian tendencies. The legislative assembly, which his party controls, sacked five Supreme Court judges and the attorney-general. Their replacements have links to Mr Bukele, who now controls all three branches of the state. American officials complained, but softly.

“Je n’avais pas prévu d’être un artiste mais mes parents sont tous les deux peintres et enseignent l’art”, raconte Vince Skelly. “Notre maison ressemblait à un véritable atelier.” Sa passion pour le bois naît dès l’enfance, alors qu’il s’amuse à construire des rampes de skate-board et des cabanes dans les arbres. “À l’école primaire, je jouais surunesculpturede10mètresdelargefaitede lettres énormes. C’est l’une des raisons pour lesquelles je fais des sculptures qui offrent la possibilité d’interagir”, confie Vince. Mais le véritable tournant n’a lieu que plus tard. Après avoir étudié la communication visuelle et travaillé plusieurs années dans le graphisme, il découvre le livre de Leslie Williamson intitulé Handcrafted Modern, qui met en lumière des designers du milieu du XXe siècle et leurs maisons singulières. “Cela m’a beaucoup influencé”, dit Vince.

ISABELLE JUNOT PRIMERAS DECLARACIONES TRAS SU COMPROMISO CON ÁLVARO FALCÓ

«No me lo esperaba, pensaba que estábamos celebrando mi cumple. Fue un momento muy especial» ISABELLE Junot y Álvaro Falcó estaban destinados a estar juntos. La hija de Philippe Junot y Nina Wendelboe-Larsen y el hijo de Fernando Falcó y Marta Chávarri se conocieron, por casualidad, hace más de cuatro años, en Gstaad, la estación de esquí suiza. Isabelle saludó a Álvaro pensando que era otra persona. Luego, al darse cuenta de su error, se acercó para pedirle disculpas. A él le hizo mucha gracia. Dos años después, sus caminos volvieron a cruzarse en Madrid y, desde entonces, son inseparables. La «coach» de nutrición y el nuevo marqués de Cubas acaban de escribir otro capítulo cinematográfico de su historia de amor. Tal como adelantó ¡HOLA! el lunes, el aristócrata le propuso matrimonio…

Her Rise Starting my blog in 2003 was escapism for me. I had a really hard home life and a very toxic stepfather, so blogging was an outlet. Also, as an Asian-American growing up in Florida, I didn’t have many people around who looked like me, so it was a way to build a community. A year into it, I did a simple skin-care routine, and that was my most engaged content. It motivated me to keep going. I switched over to YouTube in 2007 so I could share the process of makeup and skin care in story form. Big Break I applied for a job at a Lancôme makeup counter at a department store in 2008 and was denied. Instead, I received an email from Lancôme’s corporate PR team, who came across…

Cuba is facing its worst shortage of food since the 1990s “CUBANS HAVE always been resourceful,” says Ana, the owner of a private farm-to-table restaurant near Havana. “But now we need to be magicians and acrobats.” The communist island is facing its worst shortage of food since the 1990s. Finding ingredients was never easy in a place which imports around 70% of its food. Over the past year it has become nearly impossible. When grocery shops are empty, as is so often the case, Ana tries the internet or the black market, only to find that prices are prohibitively high. Farmers no longer want to sell produce to her, she says, as they need to eat it themselves. The government blames the shortage of food mostly on sanctions imposed by the United…

Scientology: A CHURCH IN CRISIS

Scientology: A CHURCH IN CRISIS

Another one bites the dust. In a recent interview, Orange Is the New Black alum Laura Prepon confessed she’s no longer a member of the controversial Church of Scientology. “I haven’t practiced Scientology in close to five years,” the actress said, “and it’s no longer a part of my life.” Prepon’s defection is just one of many low points for the church in recent years. In addition to being the subject of Leah Remini’s scathing A&E docuseries, Scientology and the Aftermath, lifelong member Danny Masterson is currently on trial for rape charges (he denies the allegations). It’s a public relations nightmare for the image-obsessed organization, which prides itself on its roster of celebrity followers which includes Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley. “These are tough times for the church,” an…

A second opinion

DIGITAL TWINS are virtual representations of a component, a device or even an entire production line in a factory. Fed with data from sensors installed on its physical opposite number, the digital version can be used to plan maintenance, spot any emerging problems and simulate the effect of upgrades and design changes. Aircraft engines in particular are followed by their manufacturers in this way. General Electric, Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney, the three principal firms involved, maintain simulations of individual engines at engineering centres on the ground. These suck in real-time data from their counterparts in the air. At Cranfield University, in Britain, however, a group of engineers hope to go further than this. They propose expanding the idea of digital twinning to produce what they rather grandiosely refer to as…

Antecipada, tardia ou na hora certa?

EXPECTATIVA, EQUILÍBRIO e estilo. O momento da colheita da uva é sempre delicado e esses são termos muito usados nessa hora. “A definição do dia da colheita é o momento mais importante da vida do vinho”, garante o enólogo Miguel Almeida, do grupo Miolo. Parece frase de efeito, mas a colheita é mesmo o ponto vital para o vinho que vai resultar da prensa e fermentação dessas uvas tão aguardadas. Mas o que ou quem determina esse momento, a hora da colheita em si? As vindimas geralmente se concentram no fim do verão, portanto, no início do ano no hemisfério sul e no meio do ano no hemisfério norte. Mas nem todas as uvas para vinhos são colhidas nessa época. Há as colheitas de inverno, por exemplo, em locais em que…

Retired Cdr. Hamilton “Mac” McWhorter III was one of the Navy’s great World War II fighter pilots—a hero who inspired many During our interviews, Mac told of flying and fighting in the tough, robust F6F Hellcat. These are his words: Deadly dogfight Imagine you’re in a metal shed and someone throws rocks against the outside. That’s what it sounded like when machine-gun fire ripped into my Hellcat. I looked around, and sure enough, a pair of Japanese Zero fighters was right behind me. Tracers were coming at me. I was the pilot of a magnificent Grumman F6F Hellcat, probably the best fighter of World War II. I was a member of Navy fighter squadron VF-9, operating from the USS Essex (CV 9). We were escorting our carrier's bombers on a strike to Rabaul, New Britain,…

“THE ANNUAL VILLAGE FETE USED TO BE HELD ON THE LAWN. WE’VE HAD MANY PEOPLE TELL US THEY’VE BEEN COMING HERE FOR YEARS” Renovating a period home is rarely a quick process. But Amanda and her husband James, with their shared vision of a blissful country home, were prepared to take the long view. Ten years after acquiring the Old Rectory, a Georgian house in an Oxfordshire village, their home is a delight to behold. Completed in a series of steady phases, it’s proof that patience really does pay off. ‘It was the garden that first attracted us and it’s really the best feature,’ says Amanda. A bouncy and inviting lawn fringed with deep borders of topiary, lavender and alliums, the garden is both romantic and restful. ‘We wanted the children (now…

José João Santos, diretor de conteúdos da EV-Essência do Vinho, tem a paixão da escrita, da reportagem, da formação e da prova. É ainda autor do podcast "Vinho, Palavra a Palavra". Escrevo esta crónica em plena noite eleitoral autárquica, com a televisão em fundo a apontar projeções e a mostrar os primeiros resultados oficiais. Não vou realizar qualquer análise de foro político, mas como cidadão fico imensamente feliz pela campanha ter terminado. Por momentos, nas últimas semanas ainda pensei viver nas décadas de 80 ou de 90 do século passado, tal o folclore generalizado a que assisti. À hora dos telejornais, era ver o resumo do dia – candidatos desdobrados em arruadas e visitas a feiras, com e sem máscara, sem que os despojos da pandemia os fizessem esquecer o beijinho…

‘Dearest Grandpa. We all miss you. Thank you for your dedication and love for us all and especially Granny, who we will look after for you’ Princess Eugenie They are the most photographed family in the world, with cameras following their every move. But we have never had a glimpse into such personal photographs as we did last week, following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh at the age of 99. Senior members of the royal family have opened up their private photo albums in a touching tribute to the much loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. The most striking image is this previously unseen image (right) of the Queen and Prince Philip in 2018 surrounded by the seven great-grandchildren they had at the time – from left, Prince George, Prince Louis,…

Là où j’ai passé ma jeunesse, on ne m’a pas vraiment guidé et, à l’âge adulte, j’ai enchaîné les conneries en me laissant aller dans le désir, toujours insatisfait, de la possession pour la possession. Et puis un jour j’ai commencé à vivre sans mobilier dans ma sublime maison. Le Crédit lyonnais avait fait saisir illégalement tous les meubles et ils étaient sous séquestre. Avec ma femme, on s’est dit: “N’essayons pas de les récupérer, attendons de voir comment ça tourne sur le plan judiciaire. Si on perd le procès et qu’il faut les rendre, ça va être chiant.” On a donc vécu pendant neuf ans sans un meuble ni une lampe! On habitait dans la chambre et on mangeait dans la cuisine. Eh bien,…

The captain and his country

ONE DAY in April, as Brazilian hospitals ran out of oxygen and 3,000 people a day were dying from covid-19, Jair Bolsonaro’s 64-year-old chief of staff, Luiz Eduardo Ramos, got jabbed. It was his turn but he went in secret. His boss is anti-vaccine. When asked why Brazil was blocking approval for the Pfizer vaccine, the president joked that jabs turn people into crocodiles. That Mr Ramos, a four-star general who once commanded peacekeeping troops in Haiti, had to sneak off reveals the depths to which Brazil has fallen under Mr Bolsonaro, whose career as an army captain stood out only when he was jailed for insubordination. Mr Ramos confessed his jab in a meeting he didn’t know was being broadcast. “Like every human being, I want to live,” he said. Before…

Paniting JET ENGINES

Paniting JET ENGINES

Before working on Trumpeter’s 1/32 scale F-14B Tomcat, I’d never painted a jet engine. On the finished model, the engines will be barely visible, so it seemed like this was a good chance to practice my skills. If I messed things up, I could close the fuselage and no harm done. I searched the internet for references, armed myself with metallic paints from AK Interactive, and grew some confidence. FINAL THOUGHTS THIS IS A LOT OF WORK for something that may never be seen. But some kits offer the option to display an engine on a trolley, so these techniques are worth practicing. When a kit offers the option to paint something in detail, I dive in.…

BACK TO THE FUTURE

STEP 1 BUILD A NEW NEUE KLASSE Reaching for a comforting squeeze of the past while contemplating the seismic changes of the near future is nothing new in contemporary car making. But BMW is reaching and squeezing on a different scale to most. Where the likes of Honda and Renault looked back and drew inspiration for a couple of individual cars to create the cute E and the R5 (see page 86), BMW is looking to an entire generation of machines, the Neue Klasse of the ’60s and ’70s. Why? Because so much that made, and continues to make, BMW great (including the combustion engine) is going out of the window. After a bumpy start, Munich’s electrification starts here, in earnest. With the i3 and i8, BMW went electric early, got burned,…

AS ALTITUDES DO VOO

AS ALTITUDES DO VOO

À medida que uma aeronave ganha altura, as estimativas visuais de altitude se tornam cada vez mais precárias. Isso vale para um voo de balão, avião ou helicóptero. Em situações de baixa visibilidade ou voando sobre regiões com poucas referências – como a superfície do mar, desertos de areia ou grandes áreas cobertas de neve ou densa vegetação –, mesmo em baixa altura, um piloto pode ser levado a uma perda de orientação espacial, com risco de se envolver em colisões com o solo em voo controlado (ou CFIT, controlled flight into terrain), uma das causas tragicamente comuns de acidentes fatais na aviação. Nos antigos balões de hidrogênio, o controle da altitude do voo combinava dois procedimentos: o acionamento de uma válvula de alívio situada no topo do balão (que deixava…

New M2 to be punchier, sharper and sleeker

The second-generation BMW M2 will have even stronger performance and more versatility than the well-received current model when it reaches UK showrooms by the end of 2022, according to insiders. The new version of M division’s smallest model is based on the upcoming third-generation 2 Series Coupé (driven, p7), which has been comprehensively re-engineered with a revised line-up of longitudinally mounted engines, a new eight-speed automatic gearbox, an updated platform, a significantly stiffer body structure and more advanced electronic architecture. The changes provide the new, G87-generation M2 with much closer engineering ties to other M models than today’s M2 has. M division insiders say this will enable the new M2 to offer a further step up in performance while helping it to retain a reputation for dynamic excellence through the sharing of…

WORN BUT ROADWORTHY

Cars have always been my passion, and I am rediscovering that joy by building scale models of them. One of the automobiles that grabbed my attention is the Renault 4, so I was happy to build Heller’s 1/24 scale TL/GTL variant (No. 80759). The kit is simple and builds quickly. I added a few details but focused on finishing. I wanted to represent a slightly worn but not destroyed car. FINAL THOUGHTS I PAINTED THE INSIDE of the headlights with chrome circles highlighted with white in the center. The taillights and turn signals were painted with Mr. Hobby Clear Red (No. H90) and Clear Orange (No. H92). These lenses and other small details, including the bumpers, wing mirrors, and door handles were attached with Revell Contacta clear-part cement. I added the few…

Tudo é Porto

VINHO DO PORTO É PRATICAMENTE uma entidade. Uma bebida tradicional de história riquíssima que fez e faz parte da cultura de muitas famílias, mesmo aquelas que não costumam “beber vinho”. Sim, pois o Vinho do Porto pós-refeição é um costume enraizado por muitos, uma herança cultural que remete aos nossos antepassados e permanece até hoje. Mas que tipo de Porto você bebe? Essa pergunta pode parecer estranha para alguns. Como assim? Porto não é Porto apenas? A princípio, sim, pois, em suma, Vinho do Porto é um vinho licoroso produzido na região demarcada do Douro. Em seu processo, há pontos cruciais como a interrupção da fermentação do mosto pela adição de aguardente vínica (o que lhe dá a doçura característica, pois não se consome todo o açúcar da fruta), a mescla…

Sora CHOI On COMING INTO YOUR OWN

Growing up, I was called “the ugly girl.” Other kids called me “the skeleton” or asked why I had such plump lips or small eyes. They commented on my freckles and how lanky I was. I looked so different from the average Korean girl. But when I’d look in the mirror, all I saw was a face—one that wasn’t particularly beautiful or ugly. All of that changed when I went to an open casting with a friend and ended up getting my first modeling job. It brought out all of these different sides of my personality. To me, beauty is when a person is living and embodying their truth, no matter what that is. One of my morning rituals is drinking green tea with a little bit of sugar. I think it…
