  • 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..

  • The 2017 IndyCar season is over. American Josef Newgarden has been crowned the champion, and rightfully so. It was an amazing season. It was the season IndyCar needed to show the world that it's back and better than ever. After the Champ Car/Indy Racing League reunification in 2008, the series had been struggling to find itself and its fans. America's premier open-wheel racing series was struggling. The series was using a now outdated chassis and the racing wasn't nearly as exciting as it could have been. The chassis in use in 2008 had been in service since 1996 but it was a necessary evil to carry it forward in the years following the merger. In those years, fans were also left wondering what was happening. When Indy and Champ were split, it was confusing enough. The years from 2008 through 2011 were rough. The series was just sorting itself out and devastated by the death of Dan Wheldon in the final race of 2011. Oddly, this tragedy seemed to be a much-needed catalys..

  • Even though Porsche increased the base price tag of their 911 model tenfold from just about $5000 in 1964 up to a whopping $50,000 in 1988, buyers were still lining up at dealerships for the opportunity to own Germany's best sports car of the era. Even though the car had remained largely unchanged since it was introduced, sharing most of the same body components with those early cars, a moderately updated interior and the Carrera 3.2 engine were the car's saving graces. Back in 1988 when the car was celebrating its 25th birthday, MotorWeek spent a few thousand miles with one to find out how much of the 911s appeal remained. Aside from the exorbitant price tag and the car's lack of anti-lock brakes, the Porsche got a pretty good contemporary review from John Davis. The 911 had always been a good car, and perhaps this just goes to show how ahead of its time the design was in 1964. Today Porsche swaps their designs basically every 6 years or so, with a minor facelift after..

  • The newest addition to the Genesis lineup has arrived in the form of the G70. The compact luxury sedan goes on sale in the U.S. next spring and will immediately join a competitive segment headlined by the BMW 3 series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C class. The G70 will be available in rear- or all-wheel drive and will come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 3.3-liter turbo V-6 in the U.S. Here's some initial reaction from the automotive press on the G70. "Right off the bat I'll say this: it looks sharp. More so than I expected. Granted, it's a bit indistinctive -- the total package reminds me of the Infiniti Q50 and the Alfa Romeo Giulia, two cars it'll no doubt compete against -- but you can't deny it's a handsome, aggressive, elegant design. They did good here. ..."On the inside, it's definitely aimed at BMW -- check that control knob and screen combo. I'll wait to judge it in person, but it looks elegant, and at least somet..
