Serena Williams And Amy Schumer Featured In The 2016 Pirelli Calendar

Since 1964, tire maker Pirelli has been producing calendars. Each of the twelve months are usually graced by a scantily clad female photographed in an artistic manor. The calendars, still filling their role as a marketing device, have carried many different themes through the decades, though never departing too far from the soft-core exposure of the feminine form.

That has changed for 2016.

Shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz. the upcoming edition takes a new approach to the annual publication. Gone are the seductive stares of bare-breasted 20-somethings, replaced by the weathered, soft smiles of well-known women who have, in several cases, spent decades making a name for themselves by bullishly fighting for their place in modern society.

The lineup of ladies includes the hugely influential Yao Chen and Tavi Gevinson, two actress and social media moguls, along with pop culture icons Yoko Ono and Patti Smith. Tennis legend Serena Williams and comedian Amy Schumer are present, as well as film director Ava DuVernay and film producer Kathleen Kennedy, whose latest works include Selma and the newest installment of Star Wars. respectively.

The traditional model-type isn’t completely abandoned, as the Russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova appears on January’s page. Her look, however, falls right in line with the other women in the calendar. A strong motherly presence shines through the image as she holds her baby while draped in a satin robe. It’s sensual, yet very tasteful.

The very fact I’m writing this (and you are reading this) shows Pirelli’s well-hatched plan of deviating from the normal. Perhaps the cue was taken from Playboy. which announced in October that its monthly magazine would no longer feature nude photographs. Regardless of Pirelli’s inspiration, its 2016 calendar is getting far more attention than it otherwise would have. Suddenly it’s popular to be PG-13.

#car scrappage scheme
#

Q 100m or a further 100,000 vehicles.

It will also lengthen the cut off point for the old cars being traded in by six months.

Meanwhile, van owners will be able to trade in their old commercial vehicle if it is more than eight years old, rather than the previous 10.

The government says the changes will come into effect as soon as possible, once formal agreement has been reached with the vehicle manufacturers.

Here are the details.

What age does the old car have to be?

The car being traded in has to be approximately 10 years old or older.

The old car had to be registered on or before 29 February 2000. This is an extension to the previous deadline which said the old car had to be registered by 31 August 1999.

How much money can I get towards a new car?

This remains the same as previously – 2,000 – with half coming from the government, and half from the participating car firm you are buying the new vehicle from.

The dealer will sort out all the paperwork, and the 2,000 will come straight off the price of the car.

Can I buy a demonstration car?

The car you buy must be brand new and you must be the first registered keeper.

So if the garage has already registered it you cannot buy it under the scrappage scheme.

The car must not be a grey import and must have a UK specification.

Can I swap my son or daughter’s old banger for a new car for me?

Not normally. The person buying the new car also has to be the registered keeper of the new vehicle.

So either you have to be the owner of your teenager’s car or you have to give them the money to buy the new car.

Can I buy an old banger and then use it to get 2,000 towards a new vehicle?

No. You must have owned the old vehicle for 12 whole calendar months before the new car is ordered.

Is the 2,000 on top of any other discount or the trade-in value of the old car?

No. The rule is that the garage must offer you at least a 2,000 discount.

It is up to the dealer to offer you more than that, but the rest will not be subsidised.

As new car sales remain subdued, it is worth negotiating for a further discount.

Can the garage sell my old vehicle back to me?

No. The old vehicle cannot be sold to anyone. It has to be scrapped by the dealer and a Certificate of Destruction issued, which the government will be checking.

Does it cover motorbikes?

No. The scheme covers cars and light vans up to 3.5 tonnes. You can swap car for car, van for van, or van for car or vice versa.

How has the scheme changed for van owners?

Van owners will be able to trade in a vehicle that is more than eight years old, rather than the previous 10 when the scrappage scheme was first launched in May.

I live abroad. Can I bring my car to the UK to take part in the scheme?

No. The car has to be registered in the UK and the registered keeper has to have a UK address.

Can I swap two old cars and get 4,000 off?

No. You can use two qualifying old cars to buy two new cars. But you cannot use more than one old car for one new car.

Will my old vehicle qualify if it is off the road?

Any vehicle must be legal to qualify. So if it is off the road with a valid Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) document, then it will only qualify if you first get it taxed and insured and gain a valid MOT.

Do I have to buy a new vehicle which has low emissions?

No. You can buy any new car as long as the manufacturer is participating in the scheme.

How successful has the scheme been so far?

To date, 227,750 old cars have been traded in for new ones, from the initial budget of 300m.

The scheme has now been extended until the end of February next year, or when the new budget of 400m runs out – whichever is sooner.

Review: 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax 4 4

Posted by: D.Colman

By David Colman

Hypes: Well tailored oasis, impervious to traffic

Gripes: Hard to park, harsh ride

We spent a rewarding week touring Northern California in the $50,889 Toyota Tundra Platinum grade truck, the most expensive Tundra you can buy. Toyota offers no fewer than 41 different levels of Tundra, starting with the least expensive SR double cab ($28,410) and ending with the model we tested. Platinum grade brings you really attractive diagonally tufted leather trimmed upholstery on all seating surfaces, as well as tufted dashboard and door panels. These artfully stitched designs conferred a richness to the Tundra s otherwise sober black interior. In addition to the needlework, this top level truck includes a Moonroof, integrated turn signal mirrors with power folding feature, power front seats with adjustable lumbar support, and memory positions for seat and mirror location. The CrewMax configuration, with its four full size doors, allows maximum use of the expansive cabin. Although we never had occasion to transport anything in this truck s spacious 5.5 foot long bed (double walled with rail caps), We did manage to fill the huge rear seat with vacation gear for a 4 night adventure to Monterey and Laguna Seca Raceway.

Parking at the track took place on rugged terrain, but the slippery hills never gave the 4 4 Tundra a moment s pause. We positioned this truck effortlessly without even resorting to 4 wheel drive. Off-road traction is excellent thanks to Pirelli Scorpion tires (275/55R20) on Platinum grade alloy wheels that actually look undersized on this behemoth truck. Our test Toyota also carried $500 worth of Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. While this option is hardly worth buying on smaller vehicles, it s almost a necessity with the Tundra, which stands so tall that your immediate sightlines to adjacent traffic need all the help they can get from this option.

Toyota eliminated the V6 from the Tundra lineup this year. While lesser versions of the truck still use a 4.6 liter V8 making 310hp, that output is hardly adequate for this 5,740 pound pickup. But the 5.7 liter V8 standard on the Platinum rig makes 381hp and 401lb.-ft. of torque, which is more than enough power and twist to propel it at a comfortable freeway pace. We averaged 17mpg on our extended journey. Given the Tundra s 34 gallon tank, good for 578 miles, we only had to refill once during our week of travel. At first, the optional $1,100 TRD dual exhaust system seemed to issue more noise than acceptable, with a throbbing drone that constantly changed tenor. But we quickly got used to the tailpipe music, and soon forgot about it all together. When you need to move fast, a firm prod of the accelerator brings out a hearty roar from the handsome stainless steel system, fitted with special TRD chrome finishers. This Tundra makes no bones about being a hot rod truck.

Luckily, the hotel where we stayed provided valet parking only, and this proved rather fortuitous since the CrewMax Tundra is not a rig you want to park in tight spaces, or park at all for that matter. The upside of its size is to provide lots of real estate on the open road, which is great. But when you are looking to dock it in town, the opportunities for doing so are limited. You park this big rig where you can, so plan on doing a fair amount of walking to your final destination. A Smart Car it is not.

What it is, however, will make you feel invincible. At a commanding height of 76 inches, it stands Texas tall, appropriate to a truck built in that state. And at 80 inches in width, and 229 inches in length, you ll want to watch those mirrors for lane placement on the freeway, because this Toyota takes careful minding. But the literal upside is that it s physically superior to almost all traffic. And for that peace of mind, $$50,889 seems a relatively small price to pay.

The Platinum Tundra proved to be the perfect get-away vehicle for a long weekend. If you use it to tow a boat, trailer, or play car, its 4.3 :1 rear end ratio will sweep your load away effortlessly, with a tow limit of 10,400 pounds. Our test model included everything you need for such a drayage chore: Tow/Haul transmission mode, heavy duty engine and transmission cooler, 4 and 7 pin connectors.

2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax 4 4

  • Engine: 5.7 liter DOHC V8 with Dual Independent VVT-i
  • Horsepower: 381hp
  • Torque: 401lb.-ft.
  • Fuel Consumption: 13MPG City/17 MPG Highway
  • Price as Tested: $50,889

Should You Purchase Rental Car insurance? US News #we #buy #any #car

Should You Purchase Rental Car insurance?

You might already be covered for your summer road trip.

The warm summer weather might have you itching for a road trip. But before you hit the road, you may need to spring for a rental car. And before you do that, you’ll need to decide whether to purchase rental car insurance.

It’s a tricky decision, given the fact that you may already be covered through your existing car insurance or your credit card. Your personal auto car coverage usually does cover rental car coverage, says Merle Scheiber of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

Through your personal auto car coverage, you’ll want to make sure you have collision coverage, which pays for damages to your vehicle from accidents involving other cars or objects. For people who already have collision coverage on the rental car, getting the rental car insurance policy is a waste of money, says Neil Abrams, an auto rental consultant of Abrams Consulting Group based in Purchase, N.Y. If you don’t have collision coverage, you’ll either have to pay for the rental car insurance or use a credit card to pay for the rental car—one that has rental car insurance built in.

A number of major credit card providers offer rental auto insurance to cardholders, such as Visa, but certain cards only offer it to elite members, so check with your credit card company first. For example, Visa’s auto rental collision-damage waiver (given to Visa credit card holders) provides reimbursement for damage due to collision or theft up to the actual cash value of most rental vehicles. However, Visa’s coverage kicks in only on theft or damage expenses that are not covered by other insurance or reimbursement. In essence, the credit card acts as a secondary insurer, and it would still be wise to have your own personal auto insurance.

The benefits of buying insurance from the rental company? It protects you from significant out-of-pocket expenses associated with loss or damage to the vehicle, including theft, says Abrams. Rental car insurance can cost roughly $20 to $40, depending on what plan you select. The collision damage waiver, also known as optional vehicle protection or loss damage waiver, can cost as much as $19 per day and shifts liability for collision damage from the person renting the car to the car rental company. Liability insurance, which provides protection for up to $1 million, costs between $7 and $14 a day. However, your personal auto insurance should already include liability insurance. For an additional $1 to $5 a day, personal accident insurance covers medical and ambulance bills for the driver and passengers in the event of an accident.

The rental companies are required to provide statutory minimum liability coverage, Abrams says. But in a significant event, that’s not going to do much for you. Statutory minimum liability coverage provides some protection to individuals involved in an accident while driving a rental vehicle—the same minimum coverage that would apply to personal coverage.

It’s not insurance, in the technical sense, that rental companies offer, Abrams says. Rental companies are not licensed insurance agents in every state. Instead, they offer a protection package. It doesn’t help where clear negligence is involved, Abrams warns. If you leave your car with the engine running and the key in the ignition, and the car disappears, the rental company may have a problem with that.

Abrams adds that some people are protected through their homeowner’s policy. Home owners can extend the liability when the policyholder is not in their home, i.e. while renting a car. However, the provisions vary from one policy to another, so be sure to check ahead of time.

Jan Zobel, a tax preparer in Oakland, Calif. rents a car when she travels to Hawaii several times a year. Zobel receives coverage using her American Express card, which charges her $17.95 per rental. I’m not a big AmEx card user, but you can bet that I pay for every rental now with that card, she says.

Westport Car Dealership Messes With Pizza Delivery Guy, Feels Internet’s Wrath

Boston.com Staff | 01.14.15 | 4:44 PM

A video of car dealership employees in Westport getting into a heated argument with a local pizza delivery man over $7 has led to Internet anger and a personal apology.

The video, posted on Liveleak, begins with a delivery man returning $7 in cash to the dealership that he had thought was a tip. By the end of the video, one dealership worker threatens to put my foot in your ass and another says he will call the delivery man s manager and get him fired.

The delivery man in the video is an employee at Palace Pizza named Jarrid Tansey, according to two employees there. Lianette Hernandez, a cook and cashier, and Adam Willoughby, a manager, confirmed the video came from an interaction at the nearby dealership F R Auto Sales on Saturday.

The total bill for the pizza and drinks was just over $42, Hernandez said, and dealership workers gave Tansey $50 in two twenties and two fives. In the video, Tansey says he confirmed that they wanted to give the whole $50, and then left with what he assumed was a $7-and-change tip.

However, the dealership then called the pizza place back and forced him to return the $7-and-change, and he was left without a tip, leading to the heated conversation on video.

It just doesn t make sense why you d hand me a bill that you were just gonna have me drive back here to give you back anyway, Tansey says in the video. I m not mad, I just had to waste my resources coming back here.

But the office-workers are adamant about their position in the video.

So listen: The manager apologized once for you. Do you want him to apologize again for you? the worker in blue says.

Out the door before I put my foot in your ass, a female office-worker in green says.

Get the f—ing owner and the manager on the phone, I want that mother-f—er done, another man in the office says after Tansey leaves. I want him fired.

The video was originally posted on YouTube, but it has since been made private. However, a Google index of the video shows the title as originally being irate pizza driver. The angle of the video suggests it comes from a stationary security camera inside the dealership s office.

Willoughby, who was working that night, said he got a call from F R Auto Sales saying that Tansey had verbally berated them. He said they took the call seriously at first and asked Tansey about the interaction. After Tansey explained what had happened, managers decided not to discipline the driver.

This isn t the first time we have had problems with F R Auto, Willoughby said.

All the time, there s always a problem, always an issue, Hernandez said. We ve been going back and forth with them for a long time.

Palace Pizza has been getting supportive calls all day from across the country, and several people have pledged to raise or donate money for Tansey.

In addition, the owner of the dealership and his son came by to apologize to Palace Pizza in person on Wednesday.

I was the manager on that night, and today they came and spoke to me, profusely apologized, Willoughby said. We both want to make things right between us. We don t want any bad blood.

Commenters who claim to have seen the YouTube video before it was made private identify the dealership as F R Auto Sales in Westport. Review pages of that dealership on Yelp and Google were being flooded with negative ratings on Wednesday. In addition, the dealership s website struggled to load.

Calls to the dealership through their main phone line did not go through. Messages left through the site s Google Connect link, Facebook account, listed email, and on Twitter were not immediately returned.
