    German carmaker Mercedes has sparked controversy by introducing a $1,200 (£990) per-year subscription to unlock enhanced performance in its cars.  The yearly fee – which equates to $100 (£82) per month – increases horsepower and torque ('turning power') for its EQ series of battery-powered electric vehicles.  With the subscription, the time taken to accelerate from 0-60mph is reduced by up to a one second, depending on the model.  It come shortly after BMW offered a subscription service to turn on heated seats in its cars, with various pricing options reminiscent of Netflix.  Mercedes' yearly fee increases horsepower and torque or 'turning power' for its EQ series of battery-powered electric vehicles'Acceleration Increase' performance boosts Mercedes-EQ EQE 350 4MATIC  - From 215 kW to 260 kW  - From 6.0 seconds to 5.1 seconds Mercedes-EQ EQE SUV 350 4MATIC - From 215 kW to 260 kW  - From 6.2 seconds to 5.2 seconds Mercedes-EQ EQS 450 4MATIC  - From 265 kW to 330 kW  - From 5.3 seconds to 4.5 seconds Mercedes-EQ EQS SUV 450 4MATIC - From 265 kW to 330 kW  - From...
    HOLIDAY flings get hot and steamy four times faster than normal dates, research has revealed. Half of couples who meet on holiday — both in the UK and abroad — end up romping straight after their first date, a poll found. 2Holiday flings get hot and steamy four times faster than normal dates, research revealsCredit: Getty 2How quickly people have sex It usually takes four dates on average before new partners get intimate in their regular, day-to-day lives. More than six in ten of those questioned said they were more open to sex on holiday because they felt free to go for it. Jessica Leoni, of dating site ­Illicitencounters which polled 1,000 adults, said: “People have a real ‘seize the moment’ attitude when they are away on holiday and they commit sexually far quicker than they would at home. “It seems the sunshine and a new environment is intoxicating and the shackles come off.” Having sex with someone after meeting in a nightclub required two dates, against three for meeting on a dating website. Blind dates took four dates, the...
    In this article WMTWalmart is trying to reduce its reliance on single-use plastic bags. It has a pilot program through its subscription grocery service, InHome.Nicholas PizzolatoWhen Walmart rolled out a new grocery delivery service, it tested a bold premise: Customers letting a stranger walk into their homes to deliver milk, eggs and more directly into the fridge. Now that expanding service, InHome, is testing whether the country's largest grocer and its shoppers can phase out reliance on single-use plastic bags and other kinds of disposable packaging that wind up in shoppers' homes — and ultimately, the landfill. Walmart swapped out disposable bags for tote bags that it collected, washed and used again for the subscription service in the fall. The pilot project, which was limited to a single store near the New York metro area, is part of Walmart's broader effort to deliver on a pledge to move toward reusable, recyclable or industrially compostable packaging for its private brands and reach zero waste in its own operations in the U.S. and Canada by 2025. In the first half of this...
    DISNEY fans planning their next trip to the theme parks can get a much more exciting experience, with top tips revealed by cast members. From making rides faster to what will get you banned, they have revealed the best insider secrets. 2Cast members have revealed how to make rides like the tea cups go fasterCredit: Getty One of the popular rides at Disneyland, the Mad Hatter Teacups, can be made to go faster depending on where you sit. Of the 18 teacups, staff members revealed that passengers who want to go the fastest should head for the orange cup which is known to have the fastest spinner. The purple cup is also a faster cup - but avoid the heart cups as they are the slowest. However, one person who claimed to work the ride at the theme park said this was no longer the case, as they were updated in 2005. They wrote on a Disney forum: "The wheel in the middle doesn't actually spin or move. "What makes the teacups spin is body movement, hence the reason...
    After an opening-round 71, It became clear that Bryson DeChambeau couldn’t hit the driver a lick. He said post-round that his Cobra driver "sucked" and that rubbed Cobra’s rep the wrong way, and actually drew a response. This one got ugly. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM If I can get it down the fairway that’s great, but again, the driver right now…the driver sucks," DeChambeau said. "It’s not a good face for me, and we’re still trying to make it good on the mis-hits." That comes across like a whiny Little Leaguer who blames dropping fly balls on his glove not being broken in. I suggest instead that he simply stop mis-hitting the golf ball and spare us the blame game. Targeting your sponsorships is bad business and overall a brutal look for DeChambeau. And that’s what led us to a Cobra rep snapping back (as much as they probably shouldn’t have) "Everybody is bending over backwards. We’ve got multiple guys in R&D who are CAD’ing (computer added design) this and CAD-ing that, trying to get this...
    When NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter completed its third flight in April, its ground team met the last of the three objectives needed to call the technology demo project a success. That’s why for its fourth test flight, the Ingenuity team wants to push the machine’s performance envelope on Mars by flying farther over more rocks and craters and going faster than it ever had. It’s going to happen sooner than later, as well: NASA has announced that the helicopter’s fourth flight is scheduled to take off on April 29th at 10:12 AM Eastern time. The Ingenuity team completed its first objective six years ago when it demonstrated that the helicopter can fly inside a JPL chamber. When Ingenuity flew for the first time on Mars back in April, the team met its second objective. It surpassed its third and last objective when the helicopter flew for 164 feet at a speed of about 4.5MPH and at an altitude of 16 feet during its third flight, so there’s nothing else to do but try to beat those numbers. Ingenuity chief engineer...
    The new head of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) said Sunday that the U.S. has to "go faster" than the Biden administration's current goal of 100 million coronavirus vaccinations in 100 days. Dr. Rochelle Walensky acknowledged that the administration faces certain constraints in its "race" against the virus. "The first is the supply, and we’re working closely with manufacturers so that does not become a constraint," Walensky told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace. "We also need to sort of make sure that this, the supply, gets to pharmacies, that we have enough vaccinators, that we have enough places and outreach to do the vaccination." Dr. Rochelle Walensky, President-elect Joe Biden’s pick to head the Centers for Disease Control, speaks during a news conference at the Queen Theater December 08, 2020 in Wilmington, Delaware. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) Walensky stressed that the picture is optimistic, with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine set to be approved in the weeks ahead, and that a fourth vaccine could be approved shortly after that. Biden's nominee for Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, echoed...
    With California in the midst of a COVID-19 surge that is overwhelming some hospitals and claiming hundreds of lives each day, Gov. Gavin Newsom is calling on dentists, pharmacy technicians and even the California National Guard to join the effort to deliver shots to millions of residents. The state’s distribution process “has gone too slowly,” Newsom said during a press briefing Monday. “As we move into January we want to see things accelerate, and we want to see things go much faster.” To speed the vaccine rollout, California’s Department of Consumer Affairs on Monday issued an emergency waiver to allow the state’s more than 36,000 dentists to administer the vaccine if they complete about three hours’ worth of video training. The department issued a similar waiver last month for pharmacy technicians. “You now have an increased army of people who can get out there into the communities and provide vaccines,” said San Francisco dentist Natasha Lee, a recent president of the California Dental Association. Lee said she expected dentists would administer the shot at locally run vaccination facilities, rather than...
    (CNN)With more than 4.2 million people given their first doses of Covid-19 vaccines so far, experts say the pace of inoculation in the US needs to speed up."No excuses -- we're not where we want to be, but hopefully we'll pick up some momentum and get back to where we want to be with regard to getting it into people's arms," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Sunday on NBC's Meet The Press.More than 4.2 million people had been given the first dose of coronavirus vaccines as of Saturday morning and 13 million doses had been distributed, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Covid Data Tracker said. The federal government had repeatedly promised 20 million people would have received their first shots by the end of the year. US surgeon general contradicts Trump on Covid-19 death tollBut the pace is picking up, with about 1.5 million doses administered in 72 hours, Fauci said. That means the speed of vaccinations is actually better than the numbers suggest at first glance, he...
    THE FRENCH military has been given the green light to develop super soldiers that can resist pain, stay awake longer and have boosted brain power and hearing. The “augmented soldiers” could be given extra military capabilities through implants, prosthetics and medical treatments that give them a bionic boost. 3The French military has been given the go-ahead to develop 'augmented' soldiers 3French armed forces minister Florence Parly said "invasive" augmentations are not currently part of military plans.Credit: Reuters The ethical committee of the armed forces ministry gave the nod to the proposals in a new report launched on Tuesday, which said in a report that France needed to keep up with countries that were already working to produce super-soldiers. The proposals aim to improve "physical, cognitive, perceptive and psychological capacities," and could allow for location tracking or connectivity with weapons systems and other soldiers. The committee has outlined some of its research, which includes drugs to keep troops awake for long periods of time and combat stress, and even surgery to improve hearing. The committee said that France needs to maintain...
    Ship-fired laser weapons incinerate, destroy and surveil enemy targets at sea at quickly increasing ranges, inspiring Navy weapons developers to fast-track a growing sphere of directed energy weapons for surface ships. Lasers were recently mentioned by the Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday in a report from SeaPower Magazine. Gilday said the Navy would quickly buy more submarines, hypersonic missiles and laser weapons for maritime warfare in the event that the service received an extra $5 billion in budget money, a move which, if possible, might greatly address an anticipated attack and ballistic missile submarine shortage expected in coming years. Gilday told participants at the U.S. Naval Institute’s Defense Forum Washington webcast that some of the money would go to shipbuilding, “most notably submarines,” the report says. In the SeaPower report, Gilday is also quoted as saying he wants to go “way faster” with lasers, adding “I need to be able to knock down missiles.” Sure enough, Gilday’s comments go along with fast-moving efforts on amphibs, destroyers and even carriers to arm ships with low-cost, high-impact offensive and defensive...
    Donald Trump has weighed in on New York City's indoor dining plans and slammed New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as 'one of the WORST governors in the USA' in the latest spat between the two leaders.  Cuomo said Wednesday that restaurants in the Big Apple can welcome diners back indoors from September 30 at 25 percent capacity and with 'strict restrictions' in place to reduce the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak. His announcement came just 24 hours after the Democrat governor said it couldn't be done because it would double the number of bars currently open and the city does not have the resources to enforce social distancing standards. Restaurants have been urging Cuomo to reopen indoor dining in the city, with several businesses going under and the clock ticking on outdoor dining as the fall weather trickles in.  However, the governor has been cautious about restaurants reopening their doors after cases spiked in many southern states following such moves and as health experts warn indoor settings are riskier than outdoors.      Donald Trump has weighed in on New...

    A professor in New York City gave advice to protesters on how to topple monuments to historical figures. “I’m a professor who studies the deliberate destruction of cultural heritage and I just have to say … use chain instead of rope and it’ll go faster,” Erin Thompson, a professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said on Twitter. I’m a professor who studies the deliberate destruction of cultural heritage and I just have to say... use chain instead of rope and it’ll go faster. https://t.co/RH3WVJm8RX— Erin L. Thompson (@artcrimeprof) June 11, 2020 The tweet, which received more than 93,000 retweets and over 382,000 likes as of noon Saturday, was made in response to the toppling of a Christopher Columbus monument in Minnesota this month. Protesters have sought to raise awareness about systemic racism and police brutality against non-white people following George Floyd's death in police custody. Amid these demonstrations, people have called for the removal of statues of historical figures they deem to be offensive, including those with ties to slavery and the Confederacy, and in some...
