As North Carolina is now in the time of year when severe weather occurs, it’s important to be ready.As part of severe weather preparedness week, people should remember these tips to stay safe when driving:• State law requires that vehicle headlights be on when using windshield wipers;• If a tornado hits while driving, drivers shouldn’t seek shelter under a highway overpass. Instead, they should move into a sturdy building nearby or stay in the car and bend low, covering their head with their hands; and• Never drive through standing water – turn around. It’s difficult to know how deep the water is and a vehicle can be swept away in just one foot of water.Additional information on tornadoes, emergency kits and overall severe weather readiness is available at ReadyNC.org or in the ReadyNC mobile app.

England custodian Robert Green’s shocking slip let the unfancied United States draw their Group C game 1-1 here at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg. [See photos of the game].America’s Fulham striker Clint Dempsey’s weak shot at the goal in the 40th minute slipped out of Green’s grasp and rolled into the goal, much to England’s horror.Earlier, Steven Gerrard’s strike in the fourth minute had taken England 1-0 up.The game saw the two sides taking 30 shots at the goal, with England taking 18.But England’s strikeforce lead by Wayne Rooney failed to penetrate the tight defences of US custodian Tim Howard, who was deservedly man of the match for his efforts. Earlier in the day, Argentina beat Nigeria 1-0 [see pics] after South Korea crushed Greece 2-0 [see pics] to register the first win of the tournament.The last time the two met in a World Cup was in 1950, when the US beat England 1-0 in what is ranked among the biggest upsets in football history.The win was dubbed “Miracle on Grass” since England were the strongest team back then while the US were given a 300-1 chance of winning.

That report was given to the National Security Council which includes the Governor and Commissioner of Police. Police say the joint operations will continue.

To that end, the British luxury marque on Thursday revealed its new Champagne Chest, an extravagant way to keep your champagne and caviar cool — and looking glamorous.The Champagne Chest is constructed from carbon fiber and aluminum, over which are layers of leather and wood. The chest pops open at the touch of a button, revealing a champagne set for four, including four cotton napkins. The crystal champagne flutes are hand-blown glass, with the “RR” monogram etched. The chest’s Tudor oak wood lid, meanwhile, becomes a serving tray.Enlarge ImageThe champagne flutes are arranged in a pattern “to evoke memories of a V12 engine,” the company says. Rolls-Royce At either side of the chest, “hammocks” deploy, containing either a bottle of champagne, caviar or other canapés, Rolls-Royce says. Special insulated champagne holders, again made from carbon fiber and aluminum, keep your bubbly at precisely the correct temperature.Champagne not your thing? Rolls-Royce will also offer the chest in a caviar-specific configuration, with two 30-gram containers, as well as mother-of-pearl spoons. Caviar not to your liking? You can also elect to equip the chest with a container featuring three porcelain bowls, “should patrons wish to present their guests with an alternative accompaniment to champagne,” the company says.The Champagne Chest can be yours from £37,000, or about $47,350, from any Rolls-Royce dealership. The company notes that, of course, customers can customize the color of the chest to their exact specifications, in the same way buyers can choose every aspect of the design of their new car.

Portkey Games It’s a big week for Niantic, which expanded its UK studio just before Harry Potter: Wizards Unite lands in the US and UK (here’s how you get started playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite). The Pokemon Go developer acquired London-based Sensible Object, known for games like the AR-tabletop hybrid Beasts of Balance and Amazon Alexa-powered When in Rome, which basically combine physical and digital experiences.It’ll spearhead Niantic London along with Matrix Mill, an AI and machine vision research team Niantic bought in 2018, GamesIndustry noted.
