Sports and Pakistan: Of Players and Patriots

Cricketers are paid to play regardless of who the opposition is or what the political designs of the governments of the opposing teams are. Kapil himself pointed out that on his visit to Sri-nagar the soldiers egged on the cricket team to go out and beat the Pakistanis in the Sahara Cup. So with whom is Kapil expressing his solidarity? If the cricketers feel so strongly about Pakistan then they should not repeatedly put up spineless performances against them.-Jayant Dwarkadas, DehradunI fully agree with Kapil Dev that there should be no sporting relations with Pakistan until the Kargil issue is resolved. No Indian player will be in the right frame of mind in a match against Pakistan. This is bound to affect the performance of the team. Further, calling off sporting ties with Pakistan would send a strong message to that country for its involvement in cross-border terrorism. Our cricket stars should utilise the time in playing benefit matches to collect funds for the welfare of families of the martyrs in Kargil.That will constitute real patriotism.-Vivek Wahi, Delhilast_img read more

Cadillac CT4 confirmed to debut after CT5 in bid to keep sedans

first_img Comment 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Share your voice 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Cadillac New York Auto Show 2019 Sedans Luxury cars Future Cars 8 Photos Review • 2019 Cadillac CT6 Review: Handsome and competent, even in base form 1 2020 Cadillac CT5 reveals a new design language for the brand 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better More about 2019 Cadillac CT6 Tags Cadillac is one of only a few automakers determined to keep sedans relevant, despite consumer tastes shifting wholesale toward SUVs. To that end, the automaker is planning on debuting not one, but two new sedans this year.Cadillac will introduce a smaller CT4 sedan after the CT5 debuts at the New York Auto Show, Automotive News reports, citing confirmation from Cadillac president Steve Carlisle. Carlisle only confirmed its existence, offering no further details about platforms, segments, debut dates — anything, really.As AN notes, the CT4 is part of a three-piece puzzle that will see the CT4, CT5 and CT6 replacing the outgoing ATS, CTS and XTS, respectively. The CT6 and XTS have been living alongside one another in a weird kind of way since the CT6’s debut, although there is some difference between these two large sedans as the XTS uses a transverse front-wheel-drive setup. Enlarge ImageIt wouldn’t be obscene to assume that the CT4 will carry more than a few of the design staples seen on the CT5. Family first. Cadillac Rumors of the CT6’s demise were a bit premature, as GM stated that the car would live on after the closing of the plant in Hamtramck, Michigan where it’s currently made. GM eventually gave Hamtramck a stay of execution until 2020, as well.AN’s report says the CT4 is “expected” to ride on the same Alpha platform that underpins the CT5, along with the Chevrolet Camaro and the outgoing Cadillac ATS, but again, Carlisle didn’t confirm anything beyond the fact that the CT4 will eventually show up. Nevertheless, those of us who appreciate a bit of variety in vehicle lineups will be happy to see that Cadillac is intent on keeping that choice alive a little longer than others.While we don’t know much about the CT4, we have a much better idea about the CT5 that will precede it. Previewed earlier this week, Cadillac offered up some sharp styling that errs closer to a fastback than before, in keeping with sedan design trends of late. It’ll come with either a 2.0-liter turbo I4 or a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6, both of which will have 10-speed automatic transmissions. Rear- and all-wheel drive are both on offer. This one debuts in about a month’s time at the 2019 New York Auto Show in mid-April. More From Roadshowlast_img read more

Elon Musk Names His First Tunneling Machine After a Classic

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global It’s safe to say at this point that Elon Musk has a fondness for offbeat names.In the case of the Tesla car models, it has gotten him into some trouble. Tesla makes three different vehicles, the Model S, the Model 3 and the Model X — which put together spell out S3X or SEX.Some Tesla owners didn’t quite get the joke, and thought that the Model 3 was an upgrade on the Model S, according to The Wall Street Journal.Related: Watch and Read the Transcript of Elon Musk’s ‘Boring’ TED TalkHowever, for his more recent venture, underground tunneling initiative The Boring Company, Musk opted to go for a slightly higher brow choice for the name of its first tunneling machine.Naming theme for tunnel boring machines will be poems & plays. Decided against plays & poems. Too obvious.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 11, 2017First machine is Godot. Still waiting … Don’t know why, when or where.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 11, 2017The name is taken from Waiting for Godot, the classic play by Samuel Beckett in which two characters named Vladimir and Estragon wait for someone named Godot who — 64-year-old spoiler alert — never actually shows up.Related: Elon Musk’s ‘Boring’ Tunnel System Speeds Cars Along at 130 MPHWhat that actually means for the fate of the new company is really anyone’s guess. But Musk said that the next machine’s name will likely be inspired by Robert Frost.@Tragik187 Third one will be from Frost. Maybe the second.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 11, 2017 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.center_img Register Now »last_img read more
