Hip arthroscopy

first_imgDefinitionHip arthroscopy is surgery that is done by making small cuts around your hip and looking inside using a tiny camera. Other medical instruments may also be inserted to examine or treat your hip joint.Alternative NamesArthroscopy – hip; Hip impingement syndrome – arthroscopy; Femero-acetabular impingement – arthroscopy; FAI – arthroscopy; Labrum – arthroscopyDescriptionDuring arthroscopy of the hip, the surgeon uses a tiny camera called an arthroscope to see inside your hip.An arthroscope is made up of a tiny tube, a lens, and a light source. A small surgical cut is made to insert it into your body.The surgeon will look inside your hip joint for damage or disease.Other medical instruments may also be inserted through one or two other small surgical cuts. This allows the surgeon to treat or fix certain problems, if needed.Your surgeon may remove extra pieces of bone that are loose in your hip joint, or fix cartilage or other tissues that are damaged.Spinal or epidural or general anesthesia will be used in most cases. You may also receive medicine to help you relax.Why the Procedure Is PerformedThe most common reasons for hip arthroscopy are to:Remove small pieces of bone or cartilage that may be loose inside your hip joint and causing painRepair a torn labrum (a tear in the cartilage that is attached to the rim of your hip socket bone)Less common reasons for hip arthroscopy are:Hip impingement syndrome (also called femora-acetabular impingement, or FAI). This procedure is done when other treatment has not helped the condition.Hip pain that does not go away and your doctor suspects a problem that hip arthroscopy can fix. Most of the time, your doctor will first inject numbing medicine into the hip to see if the pain goes away.If you do not have one of these problems, hip arthroscopy will probably not be useful for treating your hip arthritis.advertisementRisksThe risks for any anesthesia are:Allergic reactions to medicinesBreathing problemsThe risks for any surgery are:BleedingInfectionOther risks from this surgery include:Bleeding into the hip jointDamage to the cartilage or ligaments in the hipBlood clot in the legInjury to a blood vessel or nerveInfection in the hip jointHip stiffnessBefore the ProcedureAlways tell your doctor or nurse what drugs you are taking, even drugs, supplements, or herbs you bought without a prescription.During the 2 weeks before your surgery:You may be asked to stop taking drugs that make it harder for your blood to clot. These include aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve), blood thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin), and other drugs.Ask your doctor which drugs you should still take on the day of your surgery.Tell your doctor if you have been drinking a lot of alcohol, more than 1 or 2 drinks a day.If you smoke, try to stop. Ask your doctor for help. Smoking can slow down wound and bone healing.On the day of your surgery:You will usually be asked not to drink or eat anything for 6 to 12 hours before the procedure.Take the drugs your doctor told you to take with a small sip of water.Your doctor or nurse will tell you when to arrive at the hospital.After the ProcedureWhether you fully recover after hip arthroscopy depends on what type of problem was treated.If you also have arthritis in your hip, you will still have arthritis symptoms after hip surgery.Outlook (Prognosis)After surgery, you will need to use crutches for 2to 6 weeks.During the first week, you should not place any weight on the side that had surgery.You will slowly be allowed to place more and more weight on the hip that had surgery after the first week.Your surgeon will tell you when it is OK to return to work. Most people can go back to work within 1 to 2 weeks if they are able to sit most of the time.You will be referred to physical therapy to begin an exercise program.ReferencesShah A, Busconi B.

Yoko Ono Ringo Starr Jeff Bridges Recreate Historic BedIn With John Lennon

first_imgThe John Lennon Educational Tour Bus presented by Other World Computing (OWC), the premier non-profit 501c3 state-of-the-art mobile production facility that provides hands-on creative experiences to students of all ages, has launched the fifth annual Come Together NYC residency.Mayor Bill de Blasio, Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr, Jeff BridgesIn keeping with this year’s theme of “activism,” this year’s event took place on the steps of New York City Hall with a “Bed-In” that featured Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr, Jeff Bridges, iconic rock photographer Henry Diltz, Mayor Bill de Blasio and local students.The City Hall event marks the start of a month-long Lennon Bus residency and featured remarks by student activists, a group sing-a-long of Give Peace a Chance and Imagine led by Rockaway Beach rock band Blac Rabbit, and fun creative activities for the many students in attendance from NYC schools the Lennon Bus has visited in recent years.“John would be very proud to know that this project encourages young people everywhere to embrace their creativity and share their ideas for peace. I am so happy to be celebrating its 21st year,” said Yoko Ono.The Lennon Bus streamed the Bed-In so fans around the world could come together with those at City Hall to inspire student activism in honor of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s legendary non-violent protests in support of world peace.About the event Ringo Starr added, “What a great way to have peace, love and music ‘Come Together’ and honor John’s life.”“Wake-up, dream big, and Come Together!” said Jeff Bridges. “Together with Sleep Club, I was so proud to be part of this event. I’m amazed to see what people can get done when they dream big and turn those dreams into reality. John and Yoko dreamed big and the Lennon Bus is a great example of making dreams come true.”Throughout the month, the Lennon Bus will be making stops at schools across the City, working with a new Lennon Bus curriculum titled, “Come Together,” developed in association with ed-tech start-up Nearpod, to engage students in conversation and creative activities around topics including peace, empathy, immigration and activism.“After years of partnering with Lennon Bus in its educational mission with schools across the U.S., OWC is proud to continue to support the expansion of the John Lennon message,” expressed Founder and CEO of OWC, Larry O’Connor.“John Lennon’s genius and commitment to peace is an inspiration to me and billions of people around the globe, and I am so proud to welcome the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus Bed-In at City Hall this year,” said Speaker of NYC Council Corey Johnson. “Now more than ever, it is crucially important that we instill creativity and a desire for peace in our youth. It is my hope that people everywhere will give activism a chance, and in so doing keep this city, this country, and the world moving forward towards a peaceful future – a future I’d like to imagine.”The NYC initiative has been produced in association with the Lennon Bus’ Presenting Sponsor, OWC, with the support of Congressman Joe Crowley, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Speaker of the NYC Council Corey Johnson, City Council Members Daniel Dromm, Robert Holden, Francisco Moya, Karen Koslowitz, Paul Vallone, Rory Lancman, Mark Levine, Stephen Levin, Donovan Richards, Jimmy Van Bramer and Barry Grodenchik and State Assembly Members Mike DenDekker and Joe Lentol Partners include Sleep Club, Nearpod, Adobe, Yamaha, the Mayor’s Office, the NYC Council, the Department of Cultural Affairs, the NY State Assembly, Securematics, Sonic Wall and Ruckus Networks.last_img read more

OREA seeking input on improving transparency of real estate industry

first_imgTORONTO – The Ontario Real Estate Association is seeking feedback on whether it should push the provincial government into modernizing the real estate industry to make it more transparent.In a white paper released Thursday, OREA said the current sales system creates “suspicion and mistrust” by forcing prospective buyers to “blind bid” because realtors cannot disclose the contents of an offer to anyone other than the seller.“The unsuccessful buyers often feel they didn’t have a fair chance and could have bid higher if they had known what they were up against,” said OREA, in its white paper. “The winning buyer may feel they ‘overpaid’ because they were the successful offer.”OREA’s president Ettore Cardarelli said whatever feedback OREA collects will inform the final policy proposals its board sends to the provincial government, which agreed to a review of the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act in April 2017.While Cardarelli stressed OREA is not taking an official position on the issue, he said many buyers in favour of bringing more transparency to the bid system lost out on a home purchase and want access to what others offered, so it can inform their future bids or reveal how much they lost out by.He said more transparency on the issue “won’t necessarily guarantee you the sale,” but makes people “feel better that they lost out in a more open process.”Christopher Alexander, the EVP and regional director at RE/MAX, applauded OREA for debating changes to bidding, but said “it will be hard for there to be a win-win situation for buyers and sellers.”“Someone is going to lose out,” he said. “If everyone knows what each other is bidding then sellers might feel like they lost out on some money. However, if (the system) continues the way it is, buyers often feel like they overpaid, or had they known, they would have paid more.”Aside from ways to create more transparency in the bid system, OREA is asking members to weigh in on a broad set of issues, including whether agents should be fined for not showing up to viewings and not offering timely or reasonable explanations for the cancellations, whether term limits for buyer and seller contracts or early termination provisions for clients should be instituted, and whether OREA members should be issued photo identification cards to offer more security to viewings.It is also looking into ways the province can boost trust in realtors, by seeking advice on whether they should automatically deny registration to realtor applicants with violent or fraudulent criminal convictions within the last 10 years, force applicants with a previously revoked registration to wait two years before reapplying and expand its definition of the trade to account for the “growing” number of people calling themselves “housing consultants,” while completing transactions and often targeting new Canadians.OREA has been advocating for a review of the act since last fall because it says the act was introduced 15 years ago and since then “times have changed.”A final report on the act from a provincial task force is expected to be released in September.last_img read more

Imran Khan says Indo-Pak relations to remain tense till elections in India

first_imgIslamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said Indo-Pak relations would remain tense till the general elections in India are over, adding he feared “another misadventure” by Pakistan’s eastern neighbour. Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after the February 14 attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed in Pulwama. Amid mounting outrage, the Indian Air Force carried out a counter-terror operation, hitting what it said was a JeM training camp in Balakot, deep inside Pakistan on February 26. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 in an aerial combat and captured an Indian pilot, who was handed over to India later. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USKhan said shadows of war were still hovering over Pakistan and India as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration could go for “another misadventure” before the general elections. “The danger is not over. The situation will remain tense till forthcoming general elections in India. We are already prepared to avert any aggression from India,” Dawn quoted Khan as saying. Khan also claimed that he cancelled his scheduled meeting with the Taliban in Islamabad due to “concerns” expressed by the Afghan government. The Taliban last month said that its representatives would visit Islamabad to meet Prime Minister Khan on February 18. Media reports later suggested that the Taliban called off the meeting as most of the members of their negotiating team could not travel to Pakistan due to sanctions imposed on them by the US and the United Nations.last_img read more

Rahul expresses ‘regret’ once again over his remarks in SC

first_imgNew Delhi: Congress President Rahul Gandhi expressed “regret” once again in the Supreme Court on Monday for his “chowkidar chor hai” remark on the Rafale judgement, which the apex court had said was “incorrectly attributed” to it.The apex court on April 15 had given a categorical clarification that in its Rafale verdict there was no occasion for it to make a mention of the contemptuous observation that “chowkidar Narendra Modi chor hain” as has been attributed to it by Gandhi. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghGandhi, who filed a fresh affidavit following the formal notice issued to him by the apex court on a criminal contempt petition filed against him by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi, has written the word “regret” in bracket. On April 22, Gandhi had filed an affidavit in response to the apex court’s order asking him to give an explanation over his remarks and had said that he was expressing “regret” over it. However, during the hearing in the matter on April 23, senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Lekhi, had told a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi that the word ‘regret’ was in a bracket and actually it was a “lip service of apology”. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadIn his fresh affidavit, Gandhi reiterated what he had said in his explanation earlier that his statement was made in the “heat of political campaigning” and there was not the “slightest intention to insinuate” anything regarding the Supreme Court proceedings in any manner. He said his April 10 statement was made in purely political context to counter the “misinformation campaign” being led by senior BJP functionaries as well as the government that the apex court verdict on December 14 last year was a “clean chit” to the Centre regarding all the aspects of the Rafale deal. “My statement was made in the heat of political campaigning. It has been used (and misused) by my political opponents to project that I had deliberately and intentionally suggested that this Court had said ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’! Nothing could be farther from my mind,” he said in his 28-page affidavit. “It is also clear that no court would ever do that and hence the unfortunate references (for which I express regret) to the court order and to the political slogan in juxtaposition the same breath in the heat of political campaigning ought not to be construed as suggesting that the court had given any finding or conclusion on that issue,” Gandhi said in his affidavit filed through advocate Sunil Fernandes. Gandhi clarified that he did not have the “slightest or remotest intention, desire or even thought process, to bring the court into the political arena or bring it into disrepute or attribute to it deliberately or willfully that which the court had not said or meant”. Referring to a media interview by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gandhi said Modi had “clearly suggested” that the apex court had given him a clean chit in the Rafale deal.last_img read more

Team chemistry key to Columbus Clippers continuing hot streak

They’re at it again. After winning the 2010 International League championship, the Columbus Clippers are delivering more of the same in 2011. The Cleveland Indians may have the best record in the American League but their Class AAA affiliate is off to an even hotter start. The Clippers (24-8) lead the west division and own the best record in the league by 4.5 games. “We’ve won a bunch of different games already in different ways,” second baseman Jason Kipnis said. “It hasn’t been just the offense or just the pitching staff.” Though the team was adamant that success has come from all phases of the game, the team’s hitting has been most impressive. As of Tuesday, Columbus leads the league in batting average (.297), runs batted in (191), and on base percentage (.389). “It’s kind of contagious when one guy is hitting,” right fielder Jerad Head said. “Everybody in the group is feeling group and everybody is swinging the bat well in the lineup.” Head has been especially proficient at the plate as he leads the Clippers in batting average. The hot hitting has taken the pressure off of the Columbus pitching staff. Though pitcher Zach McAllister leads the league in wins, the team is only tenth in the league in earned run average and seventh in strikeouts. Shortstop Cord Phelps attributed the fast start, which included a 13-game winning streak, to the team’s chemistry. “I think everybody enjoys being around each other and when that’s the case the atmosphere is more relaxed and people are able to play at the top of their ability,” he said. “When you kind of have all those working parts that go together it translates to wins.” Despite the camaraderie, the players have also been fueled by battles for playing time and the opportunity to play for the Indians. “I think the depth on this team has been causing a lot of great competition. A lot of players have stepped their games up,” Kipnis said. With 113 games remaining, keeping the wins coming may not be easy. “We’ve had a really hot start and I think we can continue to play at a high level but it’s important to realize that the really hot streaks don’t always happen even when you are playing good baseball,” Phelps said. “I think we’ve just got to continue with our approach and continue to have fun and we’ll be alright.” The chemistry the team has been able to establish may be the key to staying on top the remainder of the season and having an opportunity to repeat as champions. “We have veterans and young guys that have really jelled and meshed together well early,” Kipnis said. “So I really don’t think it will be a problem.” The Clippers continue their series with the Charlotte Knights tonight at Huntington Park. First pitch is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. read more

Buckeye briefs Tidbits from around Ohio State athletics

Even on a rainy, September day when the men’s golf team is the lone Ohio State team in action, there’s still plenty going on in the world of OSU athletics.OSU football’s Oct. 8 meeting with Nebraska will be nationally televised on ABC, according to an athletic department release.The game, scheduled to take place at Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium at 8 p.m., is the Buckeyes’ first-ever trip to Lincoln, Neb., and the teams’ first meeting since 1956.Players on both the OSU men’s and women’s soccer teams grabbed weekly awards from the Big Ten conference.Senior goalkeeper Katie Baumgardner claimed the Defensive Player of the Week for the week of Sept. 18.

Football Ohio State ends fall practice with uncertainty

Freshman cornerback Tyreke Johnson (13) and freshman safety Josh Proctor (15) warm up as Ohio State finishes its final practice in fall camp. Photo: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorOn the surface, everything seemed to stay the same. As Ohio State practiced for the final time during Fall Camp, the coaching staff continued to weave in and out of the warm up lines, encouraging their players prior to the beginning of regular season practices when classes start on Tuesday. However, instead of the bellowing sounds of head coach Urban Meyer in the middle of the huddle prior to the first period of the final practice, it was Ryan Day as the acting head coach. Despite all of the national attention surrounding Ohio State, with the ongoing investigation of Meyer by the university and his knowledge of domestic abuse allegations made against former assistant coach Zach Smith, the Buckeyes still have a game to prepare for. Ohio State will open the season on Sept. 1 against Oregon State, two weeks after the end of fall camp. After the practice update Day released Friday, there were not many surprises on the football field. On the offensive line, with sophomore Thayer Munford and fifth-year senior Brady Taylor sidelined, the first team had junior Michael Jordan in the middle at center, flanked to the left by redshirt junior Joshua Alabi and fifth-year senior Malcolm Pridgeon and with fifth-year senior Demetrius Knox and senior Isaiah Prince on the right. Freshman quarterback Matthew Baldwin was seen throwing, still with limited movement inside the pocket and with a brace on his left knee as he continues to recover from an ACL injury. In Friday’s update, Day said the Lake Travis, Texas native “will not be 100 percent for another couple of weeks.” Freshman safety Marcus Hooker was also sidelined and not in pads for Saturday’s practice and had a sling on his right arm. In drills, running backs coach Tony Alford had his position group, participate in catching drills, highlighting the ability of both sophomore J.K. Dobbins and freshman Master Teague in that element of the running game. For the tight ends, Kevin Wilson led his group in blocking drills to start the day. With the amount of attributes in the tight end room, with redshirt sophomore Luke Farrell coming in as primarily a blocking tight end and freshman Jeremy Ruckert, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound athlete coming in with hype involving his pass catching ability, Wilson began with blocking drills, something that, no matter what the offensive scheme is in the tight end room, could be vital to the run-heavy attack Ohio State has had in the past. During the warm-up period, first-year safeties coach Alex Grinch continued to get in the faces of players, saying over and over “It’s a depth chart day.” Even with the focus on football, there still seemed to be something missing on the practice field at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. With two weeks to go before the first game against the Beavers, it is still uncertain if that will continue into the regular season. read more

Football Urban Meyer looks forward to Big Ten Championship

After defeating Michigan 62-39 on Saturday, head coach Urban Meyer is now preparing Ohio State for the Big Ten Championship where the Buckeyes will take on No. 19 Northwestern on Saturday in Indianapolis. Even with more on the line than just a Big Ten title, Meyer said in his weekly Monday press conference that this game is only special if his team wins it. “I used to say compete for championships in November,” Meyer said. “And [assistant athletic director for football sports performance Mickey Marotti] went a step further and said get to Indy. Now we’re in Indy so go win it.The Buckeyes will face a Northwestern team that lost all three of its non-conference games this season and lost one Big Ten game to then-No. 14 Michigan. The Wildcats have ranked wins against then-No. 20 Michigan State, then-No. 20 Wisconsin and then-No. 21 Iowa.Meyer complimented Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald and how he runs his program heading into the championship game. “I think he’s one of the best coaches in college football,” Meyer said. “I don’t “think” he is. He’s one of the best coaches in college football. And his kids plays like that.” Wyatt Davis replaces Knox at right guard After redshirt senior right guard Demetrius Knox left the game in the fourth quarter of Ohio State’s win against Michigan, Meyer reiterated redshirt freshman offensive lineman Wyatt Davis would take the start the Big Ten Championship on Saturday against No. 19 Northwestern. “Wyatt Davis was going to get his first start as a Buckeye, and there’s a lot of confidence around here because I’ve been talking about it for five weeks now,” Meyer said. “He’s the next man in.” Meyer likes what he has seen from Davis in practice. “He’s a rugged guy. And he’s been scratching and clawing for playing time ever since probably five, six weeks ago, and has been close,” Meyer said. “But we didn’t want to disrupt the flow of the five guys in there.” Meyer said redshirt freshman Josh Myers, who he described as having a great month and a half of practices, junior Joshua Alabi and redshirt junior Branden Bowen, who Meyer said is “back to almost what he was” after suffering a leg injury last season. Meyer said the Michigan game was the best he has seen the offensive line play, not allowing a sack against the Wolverines, saying the unit has shown a level of consistency over the past few weeks. Now with the Knox injury, Meyer said he has a level of depth at the offensive line he had not had earlier in the season. “Remember about five weeks ago we were down to the last tack, last group of guys, and now we’ve got some depth,” Meyer said. Meyer wants Martell in the game Even with the lack of success for redshirt freshman quarterback Tate Martell in the Michigan game when he entered in the red zone, Meyer said he wants to try and continue to utilize his skill set in some way. “I’m a Tate Martell fan,” Meyer said. “So I’m pushing it real hard. And we’re going to do what’s best.” Martell recorded one yard on two rushes within the 10-yard line against the Wolverines on Saturday, failing to convert a red zone trip to a touchdown each time he entered the game. Meyer said it’s not just the play of the quarterback. There are other factors that determine the success of that particular red zone package. For the head coach, it is simple why he may continue to use Martell in those kinds of situations. “I want him in the game,” Meyer said. read more

Lotus will show a new sports car in 2020 with much more

first_img 0 54 Photos British sports car maker Lotus is enjoying new life after receiving a huge investment from China’s Geely. We’ve heard rumors about a possible all-electric hypercar, but Phil Popham, Lotus’ new CEO, says there’s a whole lot more in store.Speaking to Roadshow in Los Angeles this week, Popham says he wants to “illustrate that Lotus is well-funded.” Lotus has an ambitious five-year plan that’s been approved by Geely. The first new product we’ll see is a two-seat sports car, which is expected to debut in 2020.Popham says the new sports car will address a number of so-called “hygiene factors” that haven’t always been present in Lotus’ prior wares. Specifically, he mentions onboard technology, passenger comfort and some actual practicality. Of course, Popham says that none of this can come at the expense of the car being great to drive. It can’t “compromise Lotus’ DNA,” he says. Another day, another special-edition Lotus Exige Lotus 10 Photos Following the launch of this new sports car, Lotus will create a number of other products built on a brand-new platform. Popham says all these future products will be “conceptualized, designed and program-managed” by Lotus in the UK — “no badge engineering,” he says.New sports cars will be spawned by this platform, of course. But Popham says this architecture will be flexible enough to support other vehicle types — “I wouldn’t rule out anything,” he told Roadshow. In early 2018, reports surfaced about Lotus mulling an SUV, and this new platform could provide the basis for such a vehicle. Popham reminds us that Lotus will only move into segments that will allow a product to retain the company’s driver-enjoyment-above-all ethos.Regardless of vehicle type, Popham says electrification will be a big part of Lotus’ future cars. Electric powertrains won’t be the only option, but indeed, Popham sees the need to add this sort of tech to remain competitive in the future.Geely’s investment in Volvo Cars certainly did wonders for the Swedish automaker, and Popham is excited about the possibilities with Lotus. As fans of the brand ourselves, we’re definitely keeping our fingers crossed. 2020 Volvo XC90 first drive: An improvement worth subscribing to Post a commentcenter_img 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Sports Cars Lotus returns with restyled, more powerful 2017 Evora 400 More From Roadshow 2020 Lotus Evora GT first drive: A reminder to drive Tags Share your voicelast_img read more

Pagani Huayra Roadster BC is a 34 million 791hp rocket of opulence

first_img 29 Photos More From Roadshow 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT first drive: A refresh that polishes an already good car Share your voice 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata review: Club life isn’t for everyone, and that’s OK Tags Post a comment Monterey Car Week 2019 2019 Audi TT Roadster review: The exit interview Enlarge ImageThere’s no mistaking a Pagani for anything else on the road, that’s for damn sure. Pagani Days where Pagani reveals a new car are few and far between, and thus, each of these events deserves more than a little attention. After all, these are utterly ridiculous hypercars built on the weird fringes of automotive engineering, and their exclusivity makes them even more interesting. Today’s a day worth celebrating, then, because Pagani has pulled off the wraps on its latest hypercar.Pagani on Wednesday unveiled the Huayra Roadster BC. Its first debut comes in the form of the mobile game CSR Racing 2, but the car won’t be shown to the public until Monterey Cary Week in mid-August. Nevertheless, it’s one ridiculous car, and Pagani has already seen fit to divulge a whole bunch of specs, all of which are confoundingly awesome.The Huayra Roadster BC gets its power from a Mercedes-AMG-assembled 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V12. It produces a bonkers 791 horsepower, a fair bit more than the Huayra BC in coupe form, as well as 774 pound-feet of torque. All that hustle is shipped same-day air to the rear wheels through a seven-speed, single-clutch automated manual transmission. Weighing just 2,756 pounds — a roughly-70-pound decrease over the “regular” Huayra Roadster — this thing should positively scoot.Pagani Huayra Roadster BCEnlarge ImageExposed shift linkages will never stop being cool. Pagani The exterior places a unique focus on aerodynamics, and it pays off in spades, producing a reported 1,102 pounds of downforce at 174 mph. In fact, according to Motor Trend, the Roadster BC shares no common body panels with the Huayra Roadster. As it’s a roadster, it has a removable roof, rather than a retracting one. The interior is a work of art, just like it is in every Pagani. The trademark exposed shift linkage remains, surrounded by carbon fiber, leather and suede on just about every surface. There’s some quality wood on the shift knob, and even the shape of the gauge cluster looks freaky-deaky and alien. There’s a screen in there, sure, but something tells me owners will be too busy having fun to notice it’s there.As of right now, it’s believed that this will be the last Huayra variant to grace the planet, as Pagani is hard at work on a follow-up. That’s always subject to change — Motor Trend’s report points out that the Roadster BC wasn’t in the cards until deposits just started showing up — but it’s not like you can buy a Roadster BC anyway. Not only are the cars $3.4 million each, but all 40 copies intended for production are already sold out, too. 0 Get your V12 jollies with the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC Exotic Cars Convertibles Superluxury Cars Performance Carslast_img read more

WATCH Priyanka Gandhi mocks PM Modis cloudradar theory about Balakot airstrikes

first_img Close Priyanka Gandhi Vadra addressed a rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore.TwitterCongress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his “cloud-radar” theory on Balakot airstrikes where he suggested that during the operation clouds could prevent Pakistani radar from detecting Indian fighter planes.Addressing a rally in Indore’s Rajwada Chowk in Madhya Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi said that PM Modi is such a “defence expert that he thought, the weather is cloudy and the planes won’t come on radars”.Watch the video here:#WATCH Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress in Indore, Madhya Pradesh: He is such a defence expert that he himself decided who will manufacture planes, he decided those who have never made a plane in their lives will make it…..He thought, weather is cloudy, it won’t come on radar. pic.twitter.com/ZnnoZd5xM8— ANI (@ANI) May 13, 2019Amid cheers from the crowd, the Congress leader stepped up her attack on PM Modi. Priyanka Gandhi said that Modi promised a corruption-free government but went ahead and perpetrated a “Rs 30,000 crore Rafale scam”. “He is such a defence expert that he himself decided who will manufacture planes, he decided those who have never made a plane in their lives will make it,” she said.In an interview aired on May 11, PM Modi had said, “The weather suddenly turned bad, there were clouds… heavy rain. There was a doubt about whether we can go in the clouds. During a review (of the Balakot plan), by and large, the opinion of experts was – what if we change the date. I had two issues in mind. One was secrecy… second, I said I am not someone who knows the science. I said there is so much cloud and rain. There is a benefit. I have raw wisdom, the clouds can benefit us too. We can escape the radar. Everyone was confused. Ultimately I said there are clouds… let’s proceed.”The comments that were made by PM Modi in the interview was shared by the official Twitter handle of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and BJP Gujarat pages. Later, the tweets were deleted. But, the video of PM Modi’s interview went viral on social media with jokes and memes on his cloud theory.Taking on PM Modi for berating the achievements of former Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi, she said Modi was like a school student, who knowing that he would lose the race, deliberately falls and starts blaming others for it.She further alleged that the Prime Minister had no time for the poor and the one time she saw a photograph of him holding a child in his arms, it turned out to be that of BJP chief Amit Shah’s grandchild and not of some ordinary citizen.Modi is a “cowardly” politician as he does not have the courage to listen to the voice of the public, she told the gathering. Eight parliamentary seats of Madhya Pradesh will vote for the last phase of polling on May 19. The counting of votes will take place on May 23; results will be declared on the same date.
