Mercedes-Benz When an automaker introduces a new generation of vehicle, it’s usually loaded with the latest and greatest features, which can cause the price to rise anywhere between a little and a lot. In the case of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, the price hike is on the higher side, but what you get in return makes it feel worth it.The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 will start at $76,195, including $995 for destination and handling, the automaker announced on Monday. That’s a decent bump over the outgoing 2019 model, which started at $71,145. That might seem like a big shift, but one look at what you’re getting will put those concerns to rest.Whereas the 2019 GLS450 used a twin-turbocharged V6, the new GLS450 relies on a 3.0-liter inline-6 in conjunction with Mercedes’ EQ Boost 48-volt mild hybrid technology, which can add up to 21 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque as one’s right foot demands it. Additional features not found on the last-generation GLS include keyless entry, LED headlights, a power passenger seat, 64-color ambient lighting, satellite radio, wireless device charging and 9 USB ports.The tech takes the new GLS even further away from its forebear. The tired old 7-inch infotainment screen is swapped out in favor of a 12.3-inch display running the new MBUX system, in addition to a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. There are also so many more safety systems on board, like blind spot monitoring, a parking assistant, a surround-view camera and a warning that aims to prevent people from opening doors into cars or bicyclists. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard for the first time, as well.Of course, this is just one piece of the GLS puzzle. As for the more powerful GLS580, we’ll have to wait a little longer before pricing information is available. The GLS450, though, should be with US dealers by the end of the calendar year.

first_img More From Roadshow The 2019 GMC Sierra AT4 capably handles mild off-roading challenges Review • 2019 GMC Sierra AT4: A plush truck for mild off-roading What’s in there? A Canyon AT4! Emme Hall/Roadshow This week, GMC invited media to sample the 2020 Sierra HD, but the company packed a surprise for us. It’s an AT4-badged surprise, at that.GMC let it be known that a Canyon AT4 pickup is on the way in a rather creative way. Hopping into the Sierra and flicking on the trailer-mounted camera for towing revealed a highly camouflaged pickup residing inside the unit. The inner walls of the trailer claim the GMC Canyon AT4 is coming in early 2020, so we don’t have too long to wait for an official reveal either.The camouflage does a great job at hiding the truck’s looks so we can’t comment on how the upgrades will change the midsize pickup truck. However, we do know how the AT4 badge treated the GMC Sierra 1500 and can make a few judgements based on the full-size pickup.The Sierra AT4 comes with a 2-inch lift kit, Rancho monotube shock absorbers, all-terrain tires, hill-descent control, a locking rear differential and skid plates. We suspect the Canyon will be subject to similar upgrades, or perhaps go a tad further. After all, the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 exists and GMC could easily borrow some of the Chevy’s goods to create another off-road pickup with more premium trimmings. GMC also added an Off-Road Performance Package option for the Sierra AT4 that outfits the truck with the 6.2-liter V8 as standard, a new air intake and an upgraded exhaust.Certainly don’t expect V8 power for the Canyon AT4, but even more performance goods seem like a no-brainer. The more money GMC can capture before the aftermarket, the better.GMC promised it would slap the AT4 badge on every GMC vehicle back in 2018. We’re nearing the end of 2019, but GMC also reconfirmed a Terrain and Yukon AT4 are still to come. Stay tuned.

first_imgJustin Bieber and Hailey BaldwinGetty ImagesJustin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were recently spotted in a park where they both seemed to be engulfed into some heated discussion. There were reports that Justin is apparently facing some depression in his life and now the acclaimed model has been urged by Wendy Williams to just get over Justin Bieber and simply divorce him.It was earlier reported that just like Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber is also receiving treatment for depression. Several sources claimed that the Canadian pop singer seems down and tired all the time. He is also claimed to be struggling. Even the “Never Say Never” singer posted on Instagram that he is not having the best days and asked his fans to pray for him.Apparently, this is not the very first time when Justin Bieber has faced depression ever since he got involved with Hailey Baldwin. Back when the reports surfaced that Selena Gomez had an emotional breakdown, there were several stories that alleged that Justin was spotted crying as he walked out of his church.Over the last couple of months, Hailey Baldwin has supported Justin Bieber in everything but as per Wendy Williams, things will get worse when the “Sorry” singer will become a father. As per Williams, Hailey Baldwin should divorce Justin for the sake of love to help him focus on his own health. Justin Bieber and Hailey BaldwinInstagram”Hailey Baldwin is only 22, she’s supposed to be a newlywed,” said Wendy. “I think I’d want to divorce him in the name of love. In the name of love and friendship. I’m 22, I met you when I was 17. Now, he’s with these public cries and what if they want to have kids? Is he going to be an adequate father? What kind of father and husband is he going to be?”Wendy Williams then suggested that all this drama is apparently too much for a 22-year-old model. The acclaimed talk show further stated that ‘in the name of love,’ Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin “can quickly get divorce.”In any case, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin love each other a lot. There have been some hurdles at the start of their married life but it does not mean that they should part ways. Some suggest that in days to come, the acclaimed pop star will come out as stronger than ever and his beautiful wife will be standing right next to him.You can watch Wendy Williams’ entire episode here where she talks about Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s divorce:last_img read more

first_imgStay on target 2019 Tech Trends Worth Getting Hyped AboutYou Can Finally Buy A Terabyte SD Card Thanks to Lexar Autonomous transportation could make commutes more convenient in the future. Yandex, a tech company, aims to make this a reality with its latest automobile innovation: a self-driving car.On Monday, Yandex unveiled its self-driving car at CES 2019, and it’s a high-tech ride that comes with advanced operating and safety features. In a press release, the company announced that it will provide demonstration rides in Las Vegas from January 8 to January 11. Yandex hasn’t disclosed a price or release date for its self-driving car yet.Prior to CES 2019, the Yandex team acquired a local car and outfitted it with the right hardware and sensors for self-driving operation. The total process, from obtaining the local car to mapping a route, took roughly 30 days to complete.Once the car was ready, the team used Yandex’s mapping tech to build a personalized HD map of the area around the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The proprietary self-driving software stack was then optimized to adapt to the city’s driving conditions. This test route had the self-driving car handle busy traffic, unprotected left-hand turns, and pedestrians while driving up to 45 mph.Photo Credit: YandexWhen people ride in the self-driving car, there is a safety engineer in the front passenger seat. The company calls this NVO Mode, and has a safety engineer present just in case there is an emergency. Even though a safety engineer was included for rides, the car was able to smoothly change lanes, turn at busy intersections, and notice obstacles on its route.This isn’t Yandex’s first foray into autonomous vehicles though: Early last year, the company began working on its driverless technology and in May 2017, the company revealed its first prototype. Yandex is now testing its autonomous cars internationally and operating robot-taxi services in Russia.More on Geek.com:Sex Toy Stripped of CES 2019 Award Because VaginasThis Fancy Clamshell PDA Is a Phone, Laptop, and Camera in OneThis Wearable AI Translator Lets You Talk in Different Languageslast_img read more

first_img Square array created with the laser burn-out method, with a close-up. Credit: Wei Hsuan Hung, et al. The researchers grew the MWNTs in a tube furnace heated to 650 degrees Celsius. Then they focused a high-powered 532-nm laser through a microscope onto the densely packed vertical nanotubes, burning some of the nanotubes to create the desired pattern. Burnout occurred in less than a second at an estimated temperature of around 800 degrees Celsius in air. The researchers found that burnout required a minimum laser power of 244 microwatts, and they tested the method with laser powers up to 9,000 microwatts.“The initial burnout we observed came as quite a surprise and appeared very striking in our microscope images,” Cronin said. “Typically, carbon nanotubes lying on a silicon wafer are very difficult to heat with a laser.”Until now, most attempts at patterning microstructures have been done with conventional lithography or other techniques. However, lithography is limited to 2D structures and leaves chemical residues that would be incompatible with biological applications. Other methods don’t use nanotubes as the medium, and so cannot take advantage of nanotubes’ desirable properties, such as mechanical strength, high surface area, and electrical and thermal conductivities.Laser burnout seems to offer a good solution, as it’s quick, doesn’t involve chemicals, and the resolution is limited primarily by the spot size of the objective lens. Using Raman spectroscopy, a non-contact method for measuring the wavelength and intensity of scattered light, the researchers could determine the depth of the burn. This testing revealed that burnout depth increased with laser power, and the minimum burnout depth was 5 micrometers, which could be decreased further with the use of a higher numerical aperture microscope lens.

Using a focused laser beam to selectively burn regions of a dense forest of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), researchers have demonstrated a method that may enable rapid prototyping of nanotube microstructures.center_img The researchers, from the University of Southern California and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, have published their results in a recent issue of Applied Physics Letters. They fabricated patterns in the nanotubes such as a staircase structure, cylindrical structures, and square arrays with the laser burning method, which might be used for creating gas and liquid transport channels for various applications.“While carbon nanotubes possess many exceptional properties which far exceed most known bulk materials, creating controlled nanotube structures has always been a challenge,” co-author Stephen Cronin told PhysOrg.com. “By overcoming this challenge, our technique enables chemically sensitive fields to take advantage of nanotubes’ exceptional properties and expand their possible applications into new areas.” Citation: Scientists carve 3D microstructures in carbon nanotube forests (2007, September 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2007-09-scientists-3d-microstructures-carbon-nanotube.html The researchers also noticed an interesting phenomenon that occurred after laser treatment, which was the development of white spots ranging in size from 100 to 200 nm on the top of the MWNT forests. A scanning electron microscope revealed that the white spots were nanotube bundles that aggregate during the burnout process, providing some insight into the dynamics of the process.The researchers hope to use the technique to create well-defined gas and liquid transport channels as well as deep trenches for superhydrophobic microfluidic channels. The checker board-like arrays may also be suitable for field emission applications. Further, the researchers suggest that the method may serve as a basis for developing similar patterning methods in other material systems.“Potential applications are on-chip DNA manipulation, chemical and protein identification, templates for directed stem cell growth, and gas mixture separation,” said Cronin.Citation: Hung, Wei Hsuan, Kumar, Rajay, Bushmaker, Adam, Cronin, Stephen B., and Bronikowski, Michael J. “Rapid prototyping of three-dimensional microstructures from multiwalled carbon nanotubes.” Applied Physics Letters 91, 093121 (2007).Copyright 2007 PhysOrg.com.

first_imgBefore you rush out to your nearest department store to get mom that fancy espresso machine she’s been eyeing, do a little research. Your pocketbook will thank you.The price of a Mother’s Day gift can vary as much as 71 percent depending on where it’s bought, according to a study by Costa Rica’s Economy Ministry (MEIC). Inspectors from MEIC’s Consumer Protection Office visited 192 businesses in the provinces of Alajuela, Heredia, Cartago and San José from July 28 to 31 and compiled prices of various gift options, including clothes, shoes, jewellery, home appliances, electronic devices and others.Among items surveyed, MEIC inspectors evaluated prices of 204 models of nine appliances. In some cases the price of identical items — same product, same brand — varied hugely from store to store. For example, the price of a Proctor Silex coffeemaker ranged from ₡20.900 to ₡32.900 ($38.70 to $61) — a 71 percent difference.Inspectors also compared similar products but different brands and found that price differences were even bigger. For example, inspectors surveyed the price of flat irons and found prices ranging from ₡4.624 ($9) for a Sankey model to ₡51.103 ($95) for a Remington — a 1,005 percent difference.Economy Vice Minister Geannina Dinarte Romero said the study’s findings confirm the importance for consumers to visit various businesses and compare prices and deals, especially around holidays like Mother’s Day.“Differences are so huge that we call on consumers to really take them into consideration in order to make an informed purchase decision,” she said.MEIC’s study also included an analysis of information displayed at stores and deals advertised in print media. Inspectors looked at the accuracy and clarity of information on price tags and on store signs or banners, including before- and after-discount prices, warranty conditions, special offer restrictions and the exchange rate in prices displayed in dollars.The results showed that 81 percent of businesses (156 of those surveyed) complied with Costa Rican laws regarding truth in advertising, an improvement over the previous year when a similar study found 72 percent compliance.A total of 25 businesses were asked to immediately correct detected errors, while 11 of them were given a written warning that grants them 10 days to comply with the law. Stores that fail to comply can be slapped with monetary fines ranging from ₡2.5 million to ₡10.2 million ($4,680 to $18,773).MEIC conducts price comparisons prior to holidays that boost sales, such as Christmas, Father’s Day and Mother’s Day.

Now in its tenth year, more than 100 Tourism Ministers and their aides from around the world were joined by board-level representatives from some of the biggest travel companies.This year’s Summit called on the industry and governments to work together to help destinations cope with the threat of terrorism, which UNWTO Secretary-General Dr Taleb Rifai described as ‘forces of darkness’.Mohamed Yehia Rashed Tourism Minister Egypt assured delegates that his country has the technology and security measures in place to protect tourists and urged for standard security measures to be introduced globally.Vinod Zutshi, Secretary Tourism, Government of India – WTM London’s Official Premier Partner, said countries needed to be more responsible when issuing travel advisories as perception of safety in destinations is a key factor.Zutshi’s call was echoed by Fritz Joussen, CEO, TUI Group, who noted people’s perceptions often compound the problems of terrorism. “The probability of being killed by a terrorist is lower than having car accident on the way to the airport,” he said.At a dedicated Speed Networking event, 100 bloggers from 15 different countries talked to exhibitors interested in using this increasingly important channel. WTM London applied its highly successful Speed Networking concept to new verticals, with a dedicated Wellness session.Simon Press, Senior Director, WTM London 2016, said, “Our decision to revamp WTM London as a three-day event was in response to our listening and responding to our core audience of buyers, exhibitors and visitors.

Verizon executives find themselves in after Yahoo disclosed its second massive security breach in two months The first affected 500 million accounts then the largest corporate hack in history The breach Yahoo announced this week involved 1 billion accounts The incidents while separate hacks both took place two or three years ago yet were only disclosed recently Yahoo’s stock which had been steadily trading above $40 a share since Verizon made a $48 billion offer to buy its online operations plunged 6% Thursday as the news surrounding the latest hack grew increasingly dire The White House said that the FBI is investigating the hack That followed reports that its victims included more than 150000 federal workers including FBI CIA NSA employees and former diplomats New York’s

users away invite class-action lawsuits and tarnish a brand Verizon is potentially importing these hazards if it decides to go through with its Yahoo acquisition "It’s a pretty bad time for Yahoo because it’s been in acquisition negotiations with Verizon" Troy Hunt the security researcher who set up haveibeenpwnedcom said in an interview on Australian TV "Not only is this [breach] double the

Verizon would scuttle the Yahoo deal They largely feel that Yahoo’s advertising technology and properties like Yahoo Sports and Yahoo Finance remain a strong fit with Verizon’s AOL unit After Yahoo’s
