  • Swansea manager Paul Clement believes Wilfried Bony is close to rediscovering peak fitness as the striker attempts to kick-start his stalled career.Ivory Coast international Bony returned to the Liberty Stadium on transfer deadline day following unsuccessful spells with Manchester City and Stoke.After two substitute appearances for the Swans in the Premier League, the 28-year-old started Tuesday's 2-0 Carabao Cup win at Reading before being taken off with nine minutes remaining.Boss Clement feels the powerful forward - who hit 34 goals in his first spell with City between 2013 and 2015 - is now fit enough to begin repaying the Welsh club's reported £12million outlay. "I think he's close because he lasted going on 80 minutes there," Clement said following victory at the Madejski Stadium.

  • An innocent driver is dead after a man allegedly participating in an illegal street race this week in southern California triggered a violent multi-car collision that nearly destroyed seven cars and left several other drivers with minor injuries, according to CBS Los Angeles.California Highway Patrol officers told CBS that prior to the crash, 38-year-old Anthony Lopez was seen speeding and weaving in and out of traffic in his silver BMW as he appeared to be racing another driver. One witness said she saw the cars flying towards her in her rear view mirror and managed to pull off the road just in time to avoid being struck.Unfortunately, Lopez soon rear-ended what appears to have once been a Nissan Versa at an estimated 80-90 mph, completely obliterating the small hatchback and killing its 62-year-old driver. The force of the impact pushed the Nissan into several other cars, triggering a chain reaction crash that ultimately wrapped up five more innocent drivers.Police responded and a..

  • An ever escalating war of words between the United States and Kim Jong-un’s totalitarian regime in North Korea has reached an entirely new level since President Donald Trump threatened to “totally destroy” the Hermit Kingdom in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly. It seems all but guaranteed that the rhetoric will lead to new North Korean provocations, but what's unprecedented and potentially game-changing is that they could potentially include a full demonstration of a nuclear-armed ballistic missile, or at least an above-ground nuclear weapon test, either which in turn would similarly demand some form of American response.This latest escalation in tensions between the U.S. government and North Korean officials began on Sept. 19, 2017, when Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly for the first time with fiery remarks, lashing out at not only North Korea, but also Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and other critics of American foreign policy more broadly. He vowed to..

  • For decades, packing 12 cylinders below the hood made a car—and by association, its driver—the unquestioned ruler of the road. But that royal veneer is cracking. Luxury automakers are cranking out turbocharged V-8’s that are lighter, more affordable and fuel-efficient than V-12s, and require fewer natural resources to build. These downsized V-8s generate such crushing power that it seems ridiculous to complain about the cylinder count.BMW M760i xDrive is an M7 in all but the nameThe BMW M760i xDrive is the latest case in point. With 601 horsepower from a twin-turbo, 6.6-liter V-12—an M Performance version of the same haughty engine that powers the Rolls-Royce Ghost, Wraith and Dawn—this range-topping 7 Series gives CEOs something new to moon over when they’re wondering how to spend their bonuses. But as with some new Bentleys, Rolls-Royces, Aston Martins, and Mercedes-AMGs, the shopping has become more complicated. To wit: the BMW B7 Alpina xDrive. The "other" fantasy 7 Series, crea..
