It will go up against the BMW 1 Series Sedan in China. Hot on the heels of introducing the oddly interesting Maybach Vision Ultimate luxury concept, Mercedes has published images and a video of its other big debut slated for the Beijing Motor Show. Just like we suspected a week ago when the company announced its world premieres for the show, the A-Class Sedan is in fact the long-wheelbase version set to be sold only in China. The decision to introduce the LWB model first might come as a surprise to some people, but it goes to show how important the People’s Republic is for Mercedes. Update: Mercedes A-Class Sedan Teased: Most Aerodynamic Production Car Mercedes-AMG A45 Sedan Is Coming, But Will It Look Like This? The attached video is showing the upper-spec Sport Sedan trim (Sedan version also available) and dare we say it looks quite nice. It’s almost as stylish as the CLA, but without the heavily sloped roofline sacrificing rear headroom … [Read more...] about Mercedes A-Class Sedan Long Wheelbase Live From Beijing

A trek up from Dharamkot and watching the glorious sunset is what one needs for a detox from the city crowds, says Geetanjali Krishna.IMAGE: Dharamkot is relatively untouched by tourist development. Photograph: Kind Courtesy Dave Kleinschmidt/Creative Commons The woods are lovely, dark and deep. I amble through them aimlessly, with no particular agenda except to enjoy the exceptionally clement weather of Dharamkot. There isn't a car in sight on the shaded mountain road. It seems hard to imagine that merely a couple of hours ago, I was in the stifling heat and choked traffic of Delhi. Indeed, Dharamkot even feels light years away from Mcleodganj (actually a mere two km away), with its cheek-by-jowl hotels, traffic and Buddhism on tap. I am far away from everywhere, and that's exactly where I want to be. At a height of 6,920 ft above sea level, nestled amid forests of deodar, Dharamkot is relatively untouched by crass tourist development, offering more home stays than hotels.Truth be … [Read more...] about Have you ever been to Dharamkot?
Joana Vicente, the fest's new co-head, reveals why she reconsidered how she "wanted to be perceived." A few months before Joana Vicente moved into her sleek office within the Toronto International Film Festival’s state-of-the-art Lightbox headquarters, she implemented a Marie Kondo-style wardrobe purge. Having assumed her role as TIFF’s co-head and executive director in November 2018, she jettisoned the J.Crew staples upon which she had long relied through her previous decade as executive director of the Independent Film Project. Vicente then "invested a little bit more" on her everyday pieces, acquiring staples from Helmut Lang and Theory, which she now wears to work. "TIFF is a bit more of a corporate environment than IFP," reasons this high/low dresser whose wardrobe also includes red carpet-worthy investment pieces of the Balenciaga, Chanel, Gucci and Saint Laurent variety. Other forces that prompted Vicente to reconsider how she "wanted to be perceived" … [Read more...] about Hollywood Executive Style: Toronto Film Festival Chief Upgrades and Elevates
For the one-year anniversary of Alexis Albert's death, her family took a big cake to the pā where she's buried. They sang and shared memories of the 7-year-old – one of three Northlanders who died in a meningococcal outbreak. Alexis' mother Rowshae remembers the panic as the diarrhoea and vomiting she thought were flu symptoms morphed into delusion and bruising. Alexis was rushed from tiny Hikurangi to Auckland's Starship Children's Hospital. She remembers the feeling of powerlessness, even as she clung to hope. "The shock and everything that was happening during that time was a nightmare I don't think any parent would want to go through."

Advertisement Role-playing games are a beloved staple of the industry. Ever since they moved from tabletop to desktop, they’ve captivated the hearts and minds of gamers of all ages. There’s something about the RPG genre that provides for a more immersive experience and satisfying narrative.Of course, there are plenty of bad RPGs that sully the genre’s reputation, and it’s unfortunate that many of these titles happen to be free. Conversely, the RPGs worth playing often come with a price tag — one that isn’t always cheap.But if you know where to look, you’ll find that there are the occasional free, high-quality titles that deserve to sit alongside those other games that ask for payment.Path of ExileIn terms of production quality, Path of Exile is the absolute king of this list by a long shot. It’s an action RPG in line with titles like Diablo III and Torchlight II, but despite the fact that it’s free, it still manages to offer … [Read more...] about These RPGs Are So Good You Won’t Believe They’re Really Free
