Steve Smith and Matthew Wade set England enormous target of 398 to win first Ashes Test The Telegraph Search Icon Save Facebook icon Twitter icon Instagram icon LinkedIn icon Facebook icon Twitter icon Instagram icon LinkedIn icon

Steve Smith completed a majestic return to Test cricket with his second century in the Ashes opener at Edgbaston to leave England scrapping to salvage a result. Smith, back in the Baggy Green 16 months after being banned for his role in the sandpaper scandal, followed a brilliant 144 on day one with an equally fine 142 on day four to become just the fifth Australian to hit twin hundreds against England. Where the first rescued his side from the cliff edge at 122 for eight, the sequel helped set a monstrous target of 398. Matthew Wade also left his mark on the home team, chiming in with a fluent 110 before the declaration came at 487 for seven. The more realistic task in front of England was the bat right through for a draw, with first-innings centurion Rory Burns and Jason Roy successfully navigating seven overs before stumps. They and their nine team-mates must collectively see off another 90 on day five if they are to reach Lord’s all square, on a pitch offering plenty of turn for Nathan Lyon. The 30-year-old from Sydney has single-handedly shifted the course of the match in a way that is rarely seen at this level, batting for 10 and a half hours and 426 deliveries in al...

Penguin City Beer Prepares to ‘Zag’ with New Products

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Barely more than a year after bottling its first beer, Penguin City Brewing Co. is preparing to bring a second product to market, with others soon to follow. “Everybody thought we were going to come out with an I.P.A. or something, and we thought, ‘We’re going to zag,’ “ said Mike Pontikos, brand manager for Penguin City. Named for the water ride at the former Idora Park in Youngstown, Lost River will have a peach/ginger flavor, using from peaches from White House Fruit Farm. “It was a tight time frame because the peaches weren’t ready to be picked and then they were only going to be sold for a certain amount of time,” Pontikos said. More beverages featuring products from White House are in the works. Since apples are available year round, one of those will probably be “something apple-ish,” he added. In keeping with the river concept, Penguin City will donate $1 to the Friends of the Mahoning River, a nonprofit group that advocates for the improvement of the Mahoning River, for every case sold. The announcement was made during a ribbon cutting ceremony held at the B&O Station to celebrate the opening of the brewery. “Last year we were in the unknown,” sa...

Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR XA Gaming Laptop Review: A Display Worthy of the Name picon-graphics icon arrow stem circle

Think of the Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR like this: it’s a beautiful display with a gaming laptop attached. True to its name, the Aero 17 has a bright and beautiful display, that falls short of only some truly expensive OLED options. The whole thing is attached to a sleek, thin notebook with an Intel Core i9-9980HK and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q. Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR XA Pros Solid productivity performance Sleek design Bright display Cons Horrendously-placed webcam Confusing AI software Gaming performance beat by competition Verdict The Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR has a great display and offers solid performance, but its AI software confuses and it has a webcam placed in a spot that makes it unusable. 3.5/5 $3,199.00B&H (function(){ var shopLinkJsData = { event: ’10′, evars: {“eVar43″:”$3,199.00″,”eVar23″:”ShoppingBlock_template_button_button”,”eVar34″:”B&H”,”eVar18″:”thaus-15672261784411″,”productName”:”Gigabyte Aero 17 HDR XA”,”contentID”:”thaus:en_US_18_Review_6304″,”offer_source”:”fallback”,”taas...

TDN Derby Top 12 for Mar. 26TDN Derby Top 12 for Mar. 26

Another weekend of preps for the GI Kentucky Derby is in the books, and favorites continue to stumble through March without posting authoritative victories that match their odds. But the calendar from here on out is loaded with nine-furlong opportunities, perhaps providing some separation between the true contenders and the early spring pretenders. 1) GAME WINNER (c, Candy Ride {Arg}—Indyan Giving, by A.P. Indy)‘TDN Rising Star’. O-Gary & Mary West. B-Summer Wind Equine (KY). T-Bob Baffert. Sales History: $110,000 Ylg ’17 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: MGISW, 5-4-1-0, $1,646,000.

This week ‘TDN Rising Star’ Game Winner re-inherits the kingpin spot atop the Top 12 rankings that he occupied during the earlier part of the season. But considering that the top five horses on this list are all coming off explainable “learning experience” defeats, the juvenile champ does not hold as domineering a lead as he once did. This $110,000 KEESEP Candy Ride (Arg) bay lost the slightly (.07 seconds) faster division of the GII Rebel S. by a head bob, but you’d have to think ba...

Rotolight’s AEOS is a a lightweight, power efficient, colour temperature adjustable LED light with an impressive

Rotolight’s AEOS is a a lightweight, power efficient, colour temperature adjustable LED light with an impressive range of features. With so many LED panel lights on the market you really do need to do something special to have any chance of standing out. I have recently been putting the AEOS through its paces to see if it’s more than just another LED light. The origin of the name “AEOS” is from ancient greek mythology, and like any Greek mythological name, there’s a great story behind it. Helios was the Greek god of the sun and each day he drove a chariot across the sky and circled the earth. Pulling his chariot were four Pegusi, one of which was named “AEOS.” The previous Anova Pro was a great light, so Rotolight didn’t need to go and re-invent the wheel. All they did was take the same concept and turn it into a much lighter and more power efficient version. The AEOS weighs 1.4kg (3lb), and Rotolight claim that at just 2cm (0.78″) thick, it’s one of the most portable lights on the market. You do need to keep in mind that the 2cm of thickness only applies to the actual panel. If you measure the light out to its deepest point, which is the built-in battery plate, the light is cl...

Harley-Davidson Electric Motorcycle to Hit Market Next Year > ENGINEERING.com

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Electric vehicles are a hot topic in 2018, and motorcycles are one of the hottest corners of that market. Harley-Davidson is the latest motor-vehicle manufacturer to announce ambitious plans to bring electric offerings to the market over the coming years. At the 2018 Milan Motorcycle Shows (EICMA), the company unveiled LiveWire, a completed version of a concept that’s been in testing for years. While specs are—for now—being held close to the vest, prospective buyers are expected to have detailed information to work with sometime in January. The prototype, however, can still provide a useful frame of reference. The original LiveWire prototype made its first appearance in 2014. While rider feedback was mostly positive, the production version will surely have to step it up in key performance areas. The bike initially topped out at 92 miles per hour and made it from 0to60 in under 4 seconds, but range was an issue. The debut version could only take riders 55 miles in its economy setting and 33 miles in its power setting. It charged fully in r...

The exceptionally low price is the start of the good news for the Karcher WD 4. Thanks to its powerful motor and easy change from dry to wet mode, the WD 4 can tackle all kinds of spills with ease. In our tests, it coped with wet spills and DIY dust, as well as powering through our standard hard floor and carpet tests. If you’re looking for a versatile vacuum cleaner for a variety of jobs, this is the model for you. Using the same filter for wet and dry cleaning with no fussing about, the Karcher WD 4 is a versatile cleaning whizz. Neat design touches include holders so accessories are stored easily on the back of the body, and its powerful 1000W motor delivers seriously potent suction. That is perfect for cleaning dust, spills, sawdust and even light rubble. The Karcher sucks up standard household rubbish like crumbs and animal hair like a boss. Getting more DIY, it cleared wood shavings and chips, plasterboard rubble and brick dust without hesitation. Wet pick up was flawless, the 20-litre bin coming in very handy, and with a price of £129.99, it’s an excellent buy all round. Looking like one of the meaner Minions, the Karcher WD 4 is a sweet looking bright-yellow wet a...

Ollioules-A settling of accounts between rival drug dealers is the main line of enquiry into Sunday’s

Ollioules-A settling of accounts between rival drug dealers is the main line of enquiry into Sunday’s triple murder in Ollioules in the Var. Two men were gunned down outside a petrol station in the Var and an innocent 56 year old woman who was on holiday with her husband was shot dead in the crossfire. Interdepartmental judicial police who are leading the investigation have confirmed that a small bag found on one of the dead men contained 200 grams of cannabis resin and a quantity of cash.Both the murdered men had previous convictions for drugs offences. Authorities  in the region are currently investigating a number of similar cases and the Mayor of Ollioules as well as unions representing police are calling for reinforcements to be sent to the area.
