RollsRoyce reveals 47000 Champagne Chest just in time for summer

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.Rolls-Royce Champagne ChestEnlarge 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.

Zomato in early talks with Swiggy for merger Report

first_imgZomatoFacebook/ZomatoOnline restaurant search and discovery service firm Zomato is reportedly in early talks with its biggest rival, Swiggy, for a possible merger.According to the Times of India, both the companies might face a tough time to agree on the terms of the transactions and there are possibilities that the merger deal might not fructify.Currently, Zomato is in an advanced level of discussions with Ant Financial – an affiliate company of China’s Alibaba to raise funds. If the deal fructifies, Zomato will raise up to $200 million from the online payment service provider.Earlier, Zomato had received another round of funding from Info Edge, Vy Capital, Sequoia Capital and a Singapore government-owned investment company in 2015.Rival Swiggy, on the other hand, had raised $80 million from a broad-based multinational internet and media company Naspers earlier this year.”Zomato had offered a 1:4 share swap ratio to Swiggy, which isn’t likely to be agreed upon by its shareholders. Swiggy is looking for a $500-million valuation (up from its previous round), while Zomato wants to strike the deal valuing itself at more than $1 billion,” a person close to the matter told the Times of India.Earlier in September, Zomato had said that it will forgo commissions charged to restaurants on food orders as it is generating cash in its core advertising business to fund new initiatives, including food ordering.This move by Zomato came to push hard to catch up with Swiggy which is the largest food ordering platform in India. After a tough time in 2016 when investors like HSBC Securities and Capital Markets (India) Pvt Ltd slashed its valuation by about half to $500 million, the company now seems to limp back to growth. SwiggySwiggy FacebookIn September, the Indian arm of Japanese financial holding company Nomura had said that it is bullish on online food firm Zomato’s growth performance and valued the company at $1.4 billion.Nomura believes that Zomato’s business is globally scalable and expects it to open up its food delivery services beyond the three countries where it currently has a presence.Also, if the merger between the two largest online food ordering companies fructifies, then this will give both the companies an edge to rule the food ordering business in India and will also tap on to the new customers.Above all, Zomato is still fighting for a leadership in the food delivery space that is right now dominated by the startup competitor Swiggy in India.last_img read more

Texas Leads Nation In Wind Energy

first_img Share CHRISTOPHER CONNELLY / KERATom Kiernan is the director of the American Wind Energy Association.Wind is now the top source of renewable power in the nation. The American Wind Energy Association bragged about that news Thursday morning in Arlington. Its latest report shows Texas leads the nation in wind power production. Listen to the KERA News story.Last year, the wind in the Lone Star State produced more than 20,000 megawatts of electricity.“That’s enough energy to power more than 5.7 million homes here in Texas, and also provide more than 25,000 jobs here in Texas,” said Tom Kiernan, who runs the wind energy trade group.Now, if renewable energy conjures images of hippies hugging trees, that’s a bit of an outdated image. The backdrop for the day’s news conference helped sell that message: It was the factory floor of the General Motors’ Arlington Assembly Plant. That factory produces 1,200 big SUVs every day. It’s in the middle of a $1.4 billion expansion, and by 2018, it’ll be run entirely on renewable energy, most of it from wind.CHRISTOPHER CONNELLY / KERA NEWSIn 2018, General Motors plans to run its entire Arlington Assembly Plant on renewable energy. The factory produces 1,200 SUVs every day.“It’s reliable, it’s affordable, it just makes good business sense,” Kiernan said.All of that has meant more jobs in the wind energy industry building and maintaining those soaring wind turbines – more than 100,000 nationwide. It’s also put money into rural communities: Wind energy companies paid some $60 million in land leases to Texas farmers last year.“Wind in Texas has gone from something that we would cuss every day, to now helping families to keep the ranch from one family to the next,” said Ken Becker, who heads economic development for the West Texas town of Sweetwater.With some $60 billion worth of new operations in the pipeline nationwide, wind power won’t be winding down any time soon.Copyright 2017 KERA-FM.

Antioch School of Law Remembered as Engine of Change for Black Disenfranchised

first_imgCrafted to meet the changing political and social landscape where centuries-old laws were being dismantled, the Antioch School of Law, later the University the D.C. Law School, and now the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law (UDC-DCSL), embraced the mantra “Challenge Authority” from its inception.Panelists celebrating the legacy of The Antioch School of Law as a tool to discuss the power of challenging authority to secure rights for the District’s disenfranchised communities. (Photo by Shantella Y. Sherman)Established in 1972, with an open-admissions policy, the Antioch School of Law offered mostly low-income Black students an opportunity to obtain a quality post-secondary education, while advocating on behalf of their communities.“Students were required to work or earn internships within the government so they would know how to function within the law, not just throw bricks at the system,” said Antioch School of Law Co-Dean and Co-Founder, Edgar Cahn at the forum. “We staffed the government during home rule and we held the trust of the most disenfranchised folks in the country to ensure that legally we would uphold their rights.”Panelists for the forum included Sandra Mattavous-Frye,’83, Antioch graduate and current People’s Counsel in D.C., and Shelley Broderick, Dean, UDC-DCSL. Antioch alum, Jonathan Smith, ’84, Dean for Clinical and Experiential Programs, UDC-DCSL, served as panel moderator.Antioch pioneered a comprehensive law clinic education model, which has been acknowledged by the American Bar Association and the Association of American Law Schools as being an essential part of a complete legal education. It has since been incorporated into the curriculum of virtually every law school in the United States. The school reportedly required new students to spend their first two weeks of class living with families in the District’s worst neighborhoods to get a feel for the people they would represent.Antioch graduate Joyce Batipps told the AFRO, the school was a place where social engagement and a desire to fix the parts of the government that were not working properly gained the legal know-how to change laws, disarm abusive elements, and protect poor communities from predatory behaviors. “Advocacy was not an option. There were people dying and being discriminated against all around us,” Batipps said, referring to the housing discrimination several low income residents faced if they were diagnosed with HIV. “We learned how to strategize and challenge or apply new interpretations of the law to fight on behalf of impoverished people because just knowing the law would not save Mrs. Jones’ home, but challenging certain laws and demanding others, would.last_img read more

Geologists suggest Horseshoe Abyssal Plain may be start of a subduction zone

Credit: NASA Duarte noted that ever since the 1969 earthquake that struck off the coast of Portugal, he has been wondering how it happend—the area is not part of a subduction zone. It is quite the opposite, in fact. Duarte described is as like the plain of Kansas covered in water. It lies at the opposite end of the world from the so-called ring of fire, which hosts 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes. Notably, most of those quakes are due to tectonic plates pushing against one another. Over by the Iberian Peninsula, the opposite appears to be happening—the African and Eurasian plates are pulling apart as the former creeps east toward the Americas. Duarte noted that back in 2012, other researchers conducting seismic wave tests found what appeared to be a dense mass of unknown material beneath the epicenter of the 1969 quake. Some in the field suggested it could be the start of a subduction zone. Then, last year, another team conducted high-resolution imaging of the area and also found evidence of the mass, confirming that it truly existed. Other research has shown that the area just above the mass experiences routine tiny earthquakes.Duarte suggests the evidence to date indicates that the bottom of the plate is peeling away. This could happen, he explained, due to serpentinization in which water percolates through plate fractures and reacts with material beneath the surface, resulting in the formation of soft green minerals. The soft mineral layer, he suggests, is peeling away. And if that is the case, then it is likely the area is in the process of creating a subduction zone. He reports that he and his team members built models of their ideas and that they confirmed what he suspected. The earthquakes were the result of the process of birthing a new subduction zone.
