MG Motor’s second car in India will be another SUV. What’s different, however, is that it

MG Motor’s second car in India will be another SUV. What’s different, however, is that it will be an electric. We get an exclusive drive of the test mule outside the MG plant in Halol. One of the few carmakers to announce concrete plans for an electric car in India has been MG. The car in question is the recently showcased eZS, the electric version of the ZS, and the news is that it will go on sale soon after the Hector. The test car isn’t in India yet, but MG is already testing its electric drivetrain on a test mule. And the electric motor and battery system are almost identical to SAIC’s Roewe RX5 – the car I’m driving today. The RX5 is a bit heavier than the more sporty MG ZS. Apart from that, the performance and drive should be similar. But what electric components we are talking of here? Well, to begin with, the E-RX5 comes fitted with a flat 35KWh battery. Placed under the floor and between the wheels, the battery is actually visible if you look under the car. This is because this isn’t a dedicated EV platform, so space has to be used creatively. The underslung battery gets a stronger casing to protect it from ground strikes and our ambient temperatures. It’s liquid-cooled...

S.I. man who killed, mutilated disabled fiancee in 1988 denied parole again

Chris Patterson, seen left in a 2016 photo, said he was high when killed Lorraine Miranda, 24, seen right in her younger days, during an argument in their apartment on Dec. 5, 1988. He has again been denied parole. STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Despite apologizing for his “despicable act” and pleading for a second chance, a state board has again denied parole to a former Bulls Head resident who strangled and mutilated his disabled fiancee in their home 31 years ago. The three-member panel rejected Chris Patterson’s bid for release, citing “compelling” concerns about his “highly probably” risk for substance abuse, as well as the gruesome nature of the crime and coverup. “This instant offense … occurred while you state you were under the influence of alcohol and controlled substances,” the board wrote. “You admit that your intent was to cause the death of your female victim. You strangled her, cut her multiple times and stuffed a sock into her mouth. You, thereafter, attempted to conceal your crime by staging the scene to mislead authorities.” “To grant your release at this time would so deprecate the seriousness of your offense as to undermine respect for the law,” said the board. Patte...

St. Louis bar charges by the hour rather than the drink—what could go wrong?

This summer, word hit the digital street that a St. Louis city government employee was planning to open a bar called Open Concept that charged patrons by the hour rather than by the drink. Surely, some skeptics figured, this unique payment structure would never actually clear the necessary hurdles and actually open its doors. Well, Open Concept has proved the skeptics wrong. The bar launched Friday and plan to charge guests $10 per hour for access to premium beer, wine, and liquor; and $20 per hour for access to top-shelf beer, wine, and liquor. Owner Michael Butler tells The Takeout the first option includes mostly draft beer, draft wine, and draft cocktails, while the second option includes all those in addition to straight pours of alcohol. Open Concept bills itself as an “open bar” to which guests pay to gain access; its website says “for an average price of $10 per hour you can drink as much as you can handle.” Customers are encouraged to buy their “time” in advance on the bar’s website, though walk-ins are also accepted. (Guests are able to tip the bartenders either in advance at the door or with cash after each order.) Customers who booked online will receive a confirmati...

SAILING: The SV14 dinghy developed by Disabled Sailing Thailand will make its European debut in Germany

SAILING: The SV14 dinghy developed by Disabled Sailing Thailand will make its European debut in Germany this weekend, when the first SV14 dinghy off the production line goes on display at the Düsseldorf International Boat Show. Fareast Yachts in Shanghai are building the base boats at subsidised prices. Photo: Disabled Sailing Thailand The SV14 on display at “boot Dusseldorf”, being held from Jan 19-27, is set to turn heads. Designed by Simonis-Voogd Design in Cape Town and built by Fareast Yachts in Shanghai, the SV14 two-person dinghy is designed for people with disabilities and other physical impairments. With a pricing point of just US$3,000 (about B95,800 ) ex-factory, it is poised to open up the sport to less-abled people under the approach of offering “affordable, available sailing”. Phuket-based Marine Surveyor Peter Jacops, who began the SV14 project just over three years ago, explained, “Our aim was to develop a boat that could be sailed by people with disabilities, and at a reasonable price. The SV14 is exactly that. “Up until now boats for Para Sailors have been surprisingly expensive, in some cases 10 times more than the SV14, so cost was important, as was design, ...

The $80 Philips Hue LED LightStrip is great, but you can get the same thing for $25

We love Philips Hue’s LightStrip Plus as much as anyone else. What we don’t love, however, is paying $80 for something when comparable products from other companies are so much less expensive. The DreamColor 16.4ft LED Strip Light is just as long as Philips Hue’s model and it also supports just as many colors. You can control it with an app or with your voice thanks to Alexa and Google Assistant support, and you can even sync it to music.

Fighting fat with the Arosha-Pressotherapy treatment at Emirates Palace Spa

The main goal of the Arosha skin wrap combined with Pressotherapy is to reduce the appea­rance of that bane of female existence: cellulite. Although the recommendation is a course of eight, hour-long sessions, for this test run at Emirates Palace Spa, I opted for four. And it took me nearly all of them to wrap my head around this strange treatment. Each time, I started out on a spa bed while my therapist sprayed and smoothed a glycolic-acid serum containing fishy-smelling seaweed all over my legs, back, tummy and arms. The goal was to exfoliate, allowing subsequent products to penetrate better. She followed up with a serum containing a tightening combination of caffeine and L-Carnitine, a nutrient produced in the body that is increasingly being used in creams and supplements to target cellulite, with varying opinions on the results. I then stood up, feet apart, while she wrapped me in what looked like a wet tensor bandage, starting under my foot, encasing each leg and winding around my abdomen. It was then time for the Press­otherapy portion, which involved me crawling onto the bed, where Cassandra had laid out three black, Kevlar-type cases, each topped by a plastic sheet. One...

You may already have your wall colours picked out, cabinets designed and an idea of what look you want from your kitchen worktop. But which worktop material – wood or stone, concrete, composite or metal – will suit not just the look of your new kitchen, but how you will use it, too? The options may seem endless, but it’s worth taking the time to get this hardworking surface right.  Think about how you plan to use your kitchen: will there be lots of cooking, or is your aim to entertain and impress lots of guests? If you use your kitchen primarily for cooking, what’s your food preparation style – making everything from scratch with lots of cleaning in between, or is your approach more hands-off, sparing your kitchen surfaces constant cleaning and wiping?

People Are Using Rubber Bands to Remove Keloid Scar Tissue on YouTube

This DIY method for keloid removal has a high potential for infection, doctors say, and there’s a big chance the tissue could grow back.  As if we needed another reason to remind you to be wary of health advice you find on YouTube, a new article in the Daily Mail reveals a disturbing and potentially dangerous method of DIY plastic surgery. The story highlights a “growing number of tutorials” on the video site about how to remove keloids—large scar-tissue growths—by cutting off their blood supply with a rubber band. The videos are graphic: They depict people wrapping rubber bands tightly around keloids on their earlobes and show how the scar tissue turns black, shrivels up, and falls off over the course of a few days. Several of the videos, like the one below, have racked up more than 150,000 views. Watch at your own risk! Besides being visually alarming, the at-home removal method has doctors concerned. To learn more about keloids—and the right (and wrong) ways to remove them—Health spoke with Jared Liebman, MD, a plastic surgeon with Einstein Healthcare Network in Philadelphia. Here’s what he wants anyone viewing those videos to know. A keloid is a type of scar tissue tha...

COVENTRY: A North Turkeyfoot Road man reported Oct. 12 two chainsaws, a weed trimmer and power tools were stolen from a shed on his property. Summit County sheriff’s deputies patrolling North Turkeyfoot Road Oct. 13 stopped a driver for lane violations. As they approached the vehicle, they observed the driver place a jacket on his lap and begin spraying cologne on it. He denied having any contraband and consented to a search, which revealed marijuana and a smoking cylinder in his jacket and a homemade hookah consisting of a pill bottle, hose and metal pipe. The Wagoner Street man was charged with possession of drugs and paraphernalia and released with a court summons. Also on Oct. 13, a Longacre Drive man reported he allowed his roommate’s daughter to use his car to take a friend home Oct. 10. She failed to return the vehicle and he has been unable to contact her.
