2016 Hungarian Grand Prix track preview | 2016 Hungarian Grand Prix

Posted on Jul 21, 2016

This weekend?s Hungarian Grand Prix marks the 30th anniversary of a race which was a radical addition to the schedule in 1986. F3 raced on the resurfaced track earlier this yearIn many ways the Hungaroring was the template for what was to follow as Bernie Ecclestone transported F1 to a series of venues with little in the way of a tradition of motor racing. However, unlike many of its successors, the Hungarian Grand Prix has endured, and its current contract will keep it on the schedule until at least its 40th anniversary. The track layout has changed little from the configuration originally devised by Istvan Papp. The largest revision came in 2003 when the start/finish straight was extended and two later corners revised in an unsuccessful bid to shake off its reputation as an overtaking-free zone. However the track has provided some of the more memorable races of the ?Pirelli era?. And it remains to be seen what effort the resurfacing of the track during the off-season may have on this year?s Hungarian Grand Prix: and whether more track records will tumble this weekend. A lap of the Hungaroring This is the latest (and not the last) round of the championship to take place on a resurfaced course. Formula Three, Formula V8 3.5 and other championships have already sampled the new course and the F1 drivers can look forward to a smoother ride around the 4.381-kilometre venue. In Austria the new track surface led to considerably higher temperatures during practice and qualifying. If the same phenomenon is repeated this weekend Pirelli?s rubber could be in for some serious punishment at what is often one of the hottest races of the season. The longest straight on the circuit measures less than a kilometre and leads to the sharp turn one hairpin which typically offers the best opportunity for overtaking. Battles for position often continue on the subsequent run to turn two. The track slopes downhill here, inducing understeer, and right-hander which follows immediately after is taken flat-out in qualifying. The drivers then have a chance to build up speed again before tackling the fast turn four, the approach to which is obscured by the brow of the hill. The drivers are now in a rapid sequence of corners beginning with a slow and long right-hander. This feeds into a chicane which Esteban Gutierrez describes as ?very slow, but interesting because you can use all the kerb on the apex and exit?.

Corner exits and entries merge into each other ?It becomes very...

The Walking Dead Season 7: 9 Reasons Glenn Must Be Killed By Negan

Posted on Jul 20, 2016

Batter up… The Walking Dead is creeping closer, with some enticing details and new hints being dropped all the time. Nerves were well and truly shredded at the end of Season 6, and while the cliffhanger appears to have backfired massively given the fan reaction to the finale, it does ensure a face-melting start to the next run. But who’s it going to be? Who will ‘take it like a champ’ and suffer at the merciless hands of Negan? There are a great deal of options, but only one nailed on choice: Glenn. It would be a significant move for the show to eliminate one of its finest characters, but it may be necessary in order to justify the hype since the POV execution cut to black. And that’s not the only reason Glenn should be the man to meet Lucille in the Season 7 premiere… This Internet address to the site...

Star Trek 4: Anton Yelchin’s Role WON’T Be Recast

Posted on Jul 20, 2016

croogles.com In the wake of the announcement of Star Trek 4 and the mind-bending inclusion of Chris Hemsworth, the question of replacing Anton Yelchin as Chekov was always going to come up. The actor was tragically killed as the film entered the busiest pre-release marketing period for Star Trek Beyond, and the film is dedicated to him, quite rightly. Chekov is said to have an expanded role in Beyond, having been mostly relegated to comic relief in Into Darkness, but it seems JJ Abrams will resist bringing in another actor to replace Yelchin. The producer said as much to Postmedia Network: ?I would say there?s no replacing him. There?s no recasting. I can?t possibly imagine that, and I think Anton deserves better?. So what do they do with the character? Should we expect some sort of poetic farewell as Paul Walker received in Fast & Furious after his death? That remains unclear, but it seems Abrams has some sort of plan, as he told the Toronto Sun: ?I have thought about it, we?re working on it, and it?s too early to talk about it?. It’s only right to leave Chekov out in a show of respect to Yelchin – particularly if the Kelvin Timeline is going to be closing out with this fourth movie anyway (as it should). Given the presence of Hemsworth, that isn’t quite as far fetched as it may seem, particularly as the synopsis confirms his role is far more than just a cameo/flashback: ?Chris Pine?s Captain Kirk will cross paths with a man he never had a chance to meet, but whose legacy has haunted him since the day he was born: his father?.

Posted on Jul 20, 2016

Pictures: Syda via Shutterstock Our children are growing up online ? on their computers, tablets and ever-present mobiles. At our #SecureKidsOnline Twitter chat, we talked about how to protect our children online and teach them smart practices that will serve them for years. The chat was sponsored by F-Secure, a leading European cyber security company with decades of experiences defending enterprises and consumers against everything from opportunistic ransomware infections to advanced cyber-attacks. At the #SecureKidsOnline Twitter chat, you shared lessons you teach your children, plus revealed smart strategies you can put to use. We were also joined by F-Secure expert Tom Gaffney, who answered questions about online security. What are parents worried about? 1. Also concerned about how much personal information our son is sharing online @deanwilloughby 2. Particularly pop-up ads during online games. Worried little one will accidentally click one! @littleblondpea 3. When our grandchildren visit, how can we be sure they are only accessing safe sites? They love using the net! @libra10001 4. I worry about cyber bullying + WHO they are speaking to online as it is so easy to be someone they are not @Tantrums2Smiles Security tips from F-Secure 5.
