5 cool wonderful fact about Lamborghini Centenario

5 cool wonderful fact about Lamborghini Centenario

The Quail Lodge Golf Club hosts one of the premier events during the Monterey peninsula’s Car Week festivities. Nestled in Carmel Valley, low fog hanging over perfectly manicured fairways, tall old pines lining the open spaces, classic cars from Ferraris to Fiats carpet the grassy expanse. This is The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, and this year, it’s the global debut of the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster. First things first–why is this car called the Centenario? Because 2016 marks 100 years since founder Ferrucio Lamborghini’s birth. As Stefano Domenicali pointed out today during the unveiling ceremony, this year is also the 50th since the debut of the Miura. But back to the Centenario Roadster and what’s so cool about it. As a completely limited-edition, over-the-top, semi-bespoke Lamborghini for its core customers, it’s a ludicrous machine, highly impractical, and likely to ignite the fantasies and desires of the car-obsessed young (and old) as it rips its way across the web today.   This is the cool facts you should know about this...

Descendant of last survivor of final slave ship to travel from African to US

Descendant of last survivor of final slave ship to travel from African to US

The great-great-grandson of the last survivor of the final slave ship to take captives from Africa to America has spoken of his pride at seeing his great-great-grandfather’s story finally being published 87 years after it was written.   Garry Lumbers told The Independent he wouldn’t just buy the book Barracoon for himself, but also for all his 22 grandchildren, and study it with them. He said he will do this to play his part in ensuring that never again would the world neglect the story of his great ancestor: born in Africa as Kossula, died in America in 1935 as Cudjo Lewis.   Garry Lumbers beside the grave of his great-great-grandfather, Cudjo Lewis   Cudjo Lewis was a "warrior in chains" shipped to America 51 years after America had supposedly banned the importation of slaves. Cudjo and 115 other captives were transported on the slave ship Clotilda in 1859 after a white man made a bet that he could smuggle a consignment of captives decades after the ban on slaves importation.   According to some accounts,...

Know the actual difference between town and city commuters.

Know the actual difference between town and city commuters.

Key Difference: A city is a large and permanent settlement covering a significant area of land. Town is a human settlement that is bigger than a village but smaller than a city. The requirements for a town to be considered as a city vary country to country. The terms ‘city’ and ‘town’ are often confusing for many people as there is not official demarcation of what defines a city and what defines a town. While, many places state that a town and a city are the same, with the only distinction being a piece of paper from the mayor or a governmental office. However, in other places a city requires its own set of administrative offices and churches to be considered as a city. The difference between the two varies from country to country. A city is a large and permanent settlement. It covers a significant area of land that has a shared historical background. Cities may have a particular administrative, legal, or...

My home is not private anymore: Technologies that see through the walls.

My home is not private anymore: Technologies that see through the walls.

In the early of 2015, USA launched a wave of publications on a handheld radar called RANGE-R that has been used by the U.S. security agent and other government services. The radar system is able to ‘see through the walls’. To be more accurate, it registers motion inside closed spaces. The radar system’s high sensitivity is able to detect a hiding man’s breathing somewhere deep inside a building, behind several walls. The existence of such a device was surprising for many journalists tasked with publishing the features of RANGE-R. However, these radars have long been in mass production for military and intelligence-service needs. RANGE-R systems have been used in FBI hostage-rescue missions, by firefighters during collapsed building search-and-rescue operations, in the U.S. Marshals Service operations when catching fugitives, and so on.

Today, the radar system is more widely used due to technological advancements that contributed to price decreases. The RANGE-R radar...

How Bugatti Chiron Is Remotely Monitored From Bugatti HQ  Real Time..

How Bugatti Chiron Is Remotely Monitored From Bugatti HQ Real Time..

Back in 2004, Bugatti introduced the telemetry system to the Veyron.. and the upgraded and latest telemetry has made it’s way into the new Bugatti Chiron. This system monitors the entire car 24/7 and transmits real time information to the Bugatti headquarters. So the company knows what’s wrong with your car even before you have a clue. “Bugatti’s telemetry system is our version of the connected car – exclusive and individual for our customers and saving time and money for our developers,” said electrical engineer Nortbert Uffmann, who’s responsible for the system. “This is ‘Connected Car‘ à la Bugatti, and it has already been available for more than a decade.” Back at the factory, Bugatti has some mechanics called “flying doctors” who take the next airplane off to the cars location to attend to any issue it may have. While in transit, these flying doctors can continue diagnostics on the car in a bid to provide world class service to their clients. The...

Exercise boosts intelligence of future generation to come and unborn.

Exercise boosts intelligence of future generation to come and unborn.

Parents who exercise may boost the intelligence of future generations, new research suggests. Active mice are more likely to have offspring that show improved abilities to learn compared to rodents whose movement is restricted, a German study has found. Such offspring also have better communication between cells in the regions of their brains responsible for taking on new information, the research adds, which is known as the hippocampus. Exercise is thought to boost mice’s intelligence by altering Deoxy ribonucleic Acid (DNA)/genetic material in their fathers’ sperm, according to the researchers. Previous findings suggest being active improves people’s memories, productivity and decision-making skills by boosting oxygen levels to their brains. The researchers found sections of DNA, known as miRNA212 and miRNA132, may be responsible for improved learning in rodents’ offspring. These DNA sections accumulate in mice’s brains after exercise. Previous research suggests these stimulate the production of junctions between nerve cells, which allow messages to be transferred and may boost learning. Study author Professor André Fischer, from the German...

China and Russia could contend the US with a space attacks.

China and Russia could contend the US with a space attacks.

In the Early year of 1997, China fired a missile that flew 537 miles above the earth and smashed one of its weather satellites, causing thousands of pieces of debris to drift endlessly through Earth's orbit. Just a year later, the US Navy responded by shooting down a satellite in danger of falling out of earth's orbit at 133 miles and traveling at 17,000 mph with an SM-3 missile, which the US military fields hundreds of. Since then, Russia has completed at least five anti-satellite missile tests. Though US astronauts aboard the Apollo 11 left behind a plaque on the moon in 1969 with the inscription "We came in peace for all mankind," in the intervening decades, space has become militarized as major superpowers now rely on satellite communications. "Space is not a sanctuary, it is a war fighting domain," US Air Force Brigadier General Mark Baird said at the Defense One Tech Summit last week. The US military relies on space-based operations for everything including communications, coordination, navigation, and surveillance, Peter Singer,...
