What better way to celebrate than with a one-off creation?

The Nissan GT-R (Skyline) is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. Design house Italdesign also turns 50. To celebrate these historic landmarks, Nissan teamed up with Giorgetto Giugiaro's design studio to create a new prototype vehicle called the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign. The "50" in the name obviously refers to the anniversary years of both the Skyline and the design house, and the car is based on a production 2018 Nissan GT-R Nismo model.

“How often do you get to ask, ‘What if we created a GT-R without limits,’ and then actually get to build it?” said Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s senior vice president for global design. “This is a rare window in time when two big moments intersect: 50 years of Italdesign shaping the automotive world and 50 years of Nissan generating excitement through our iconic GT-R. So to celebrate this convergence, Nissan and Italdesign created this custom GT-R to mark 50 years of engineering leadership.” In a unique roll reversal, Italdesign developed and engineered the car, while Nissan Design Europe in London and Nissan Design America worked on the interior and exterior designs.

At the front, the changes from a standard GT-R are very clear. The Nissan GT-R50 features a gold section across the length of the vehicle, with a pronounced hood and thinner headlights. Looking at the car from the side, you'll notice the roof has been lowered by 54 millimeters and the signature GT-R "samurai blades" behind the front wheels match the gold in the front fascia. Around back, the rear fascia highlights the car's width with muscular flared wheel arches and shoulder lines that taper around the base of the rear window. Even more gold elements are used to break up the rear structure.

The GT-R50 retains the classic twin round taillights, but reimagines them as a separate floating element with thin light rings and hollow centers. No GT-R would be complete without a rear wing, and the GT-R50 uses an adjustable unit mounted with two uprights.

Custom 21-inch wheels finish off the car’s bold stance, and the Liquid Kinetic Gray paint with distinctive Energetic Sigma Gold anniversary accents gives the car a unique flavor. Under the hood, Nismo took inspiration from GT3 racing, and pumped up the 3.8-liter V6 VR38DETT engine to 710 horsepower and 757 lb-ft of torque. Changes to the twin-turbo V6 engine include twin high-flow, large-diameter GT3-spec turbochargers, larger intercoolers, a heavy-duty crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods and bearings, high-flow piston oil jets, revised camshaft profiles, higher-flow fuel injectors, and optimized ignition, intake, and exhaust systems.

The six-speed dual-clutch transaxle has also been reinforced to handle the extra power. In addition to the added power, the GT-R50 will handle better thanks to a Bilstein DampTronic continuously adjustable damping system, Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. “Although this is not the next-generation GT-R, it is an exciting celebration of two anniversaries in a provocative and creative way – wrapping one of Nissan’s best engineering platforms and Japanese design with Italian coach building,” said Albaisa. While this may not be the R36 GT-R we've been waiting for, it may be a sign that the R35 generation is finally on its way out.

Reports that North Korea is continuing its weapons programme, despite pledges to denuclearise, have cast doubt on its sincerity in peace talks.

The recent reports, based on US intelligence leaks, suggest the country is still upgrading its nuclear enrichment sites, among other activities. So what's actually going on?

Here's what has been reported across US media:

How reliable are these reports? They are "only" reports but they are deemed accurate by respected North Korea watchers.

The information is based on multiple unnamed sources from the US intelligence community as well as the 38 North study of satellite images of the Yongbyon site .

In summary: centrifuges spin at Yongbyon, Kangson, and another facility; KN15 TELs continue to roll out; the Hamhung solid-fuel shop expands considerably.We shouldn't be surprised; these are in line with Kim's New Year's Day directive on warhead/ballistic missile production.

"None of that activity is in violation of any agreements made at the Singapore summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un," explains Vipin Narang, MIT professor for political science and specialist on nuclear proliferation.

In the declaration wrapping up that summit, Pyongyang merely agreed to work towards denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, something it sees as a phased process.

Details of the process still remain to be worked out by the two sides.

"This was never going to be unilateral and immediate," says Mr Narang. "So Kim Jong-un is free to continue operating the existing sites."

Yet the reports that the North is continuing its nuclear activity is still seen as undermining the spirit of the summit and casts doubt on Pyongyang's sincerity to denuclearise.

"The bigger picture here is that North Korea's nuclear programme continues as directed by Kim Jong-un in his speech in January, where he urged the continued production of warheads and ballistic missiles," explains Ankit Panda, editor at The Diplomat magazine.

Solid fuel engines are more mobile and hence a big step for Pyongyang. Together with the mobile launchers, it means that North Korea can fire missiles from sites that can be quickly set up and not be detected ahead of time by South Korea or the US.

The battle for attention means your radio station is competing against every other content creator on every other platform for the attention of your listeners. The challenge is how to use social media to win the attention of new listeners and turn existing listeners into loyal fans by creating a deep and on-gong relationship with them. But how do you stand out on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat or Instagram? In this session we’ll show you how to build a relationship with the audience beyond the show and how to take a marketing approach to your social media, so as to build a strong radio brand in social media spaces. There will be plenty of examples of current work that Somethin’ Else is creating for the BBC’s biggest national radio stations and we’ll see great examples from how other broadcasters are approaching it and how these lessons can be applied to radio.

6 Historical Figures Who May or May Not Have Existed


July 06, 2018

The protector of Camelot is one of history’s most well known monarchs, but many scholars believe his story to be a legend on par with the Sword in the Stone. The brave King Arthur is traditionally described as having repelled a Saxon attack on Britain in the 5th or 6th century. But while he supposedly won a series of 12 battles against the invaders, the great king is not named in the only surviving history of the conflict. In fact, a full depiction of Arthur did not surface until the 9th century, and an account of Lady Guinevere and the famous Knights of the Round Table only appeared with Geoffrey of Monmouth’s 12th century text “History of the Kings of Britain.”

Even if the modern depiction of Arthur as a knight in shining armor is a myth built up by books like Sir Thomas Malory’s “Le Morte d’Arthur,” some historians still believe these tales were based on a real person. Among other candidates, they argue the Arthur legend may have been inspired by the exploits of the warrior king Ambrosius Aurelianus, the monarch Riothamus or perhaps even a Roman general named Lucius Artorius Castus.

We all learned about the Pythagorean Theorem in math class, but a similarly elegant proof is not available for the existence of its namesake. According to some accounts, the Greek thinker Pythagoras lived during the 5th and 6th century B.C. He is remembered as a philosopher and mathematician, but in ancient times he was better known as the spiritual father of a cult obsessed by numerology, the transmigration of the human soul and—quite bizarrely—the evils of eating beans.

While Pythagoras’ hatred of legumes is well documented, there are no significant contemporary accounts of his life. All references to the great thinker—and perhaps also his famed ideas and formulas—came from his followers, who called themselves Pythagoreans. What stories we do have of Pythagoras are deeply intertwined with myth and the supernatural. One tale describes him as possessing a golden thigh; another declares he was the son of the god Apollo. For some, these lies and contradictions hint that Pythagoras was simply an exaggerated or even fictional leader concocted by the members of a religious sect. Even if Pythagoras did exist, he probably wasn’t the first to discover his famous theorem—evidence shows the Egyptians may have divined the formula much earlier.
