Newcastle set to be sold for £350m - should we rejoice?

Newcastle set to be sold for £350m - should we rejoice? According to some reports, Mike Ashley has agreed to sell Newcastle United to Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan for around £350m. Newcastle are refusing to comment on the stories at this stage which makes us believe that there may be some truth to them as the club have been quick to deny similar stories in the past. If, as we are inclined to believe, Ashley has accepted the £350m offer, then Magpies fans all over the globe will rejoice. Representatives of Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehaya, who happens to be the half brother of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, are saying that a deal is now completed and the best news is that they intend to keep Rafa Benitez as manager.

The Corvette will reportedly debut at an event this summer, and the company will have the model Mid - engined Chevrolet Corvette buyers who enjoy hitting the links as much as the like automotive That means both of the sports car's occupants should have no problem bringing all of their clubs

Mid - engined layout is one small step for sports cars, one giant leap for General Motors and Corvette . "The news that Corvette will now be built in right-hand-drive for the first time ever – and will be exported to New Zealand – is hugely exciting for our team at Holden and any Kiwi who loves

Old Men, Rejoice: The Mid-Engined Corvette Will Have Space for Golf Clubs © Greg Pajo - Car and Driver Chevy claims the new 2020 mid-engined Corvette will also hold two duffle bags, a full-sized roller bag, and its own roof. But not at the same time.

Old men love Corvettes. They love to buy old ones, talk about buying new ones, and complain about how those new ones will never be as good as the old ones.

The advent of the mid-engined Corvette, which is intended at least in part to attract a younger audience (the average age of a Corvette owner in 2015 was 61), has exposed fertile new ground for the speculative complaining of aging boomers. If the engine's in the back, where will the golf clubs go?

India will build its own space station in the next decade (ISRO) announced its ambitious plan to put up a space station in the next decade. The space agency’s chief said launch it by 2030.

The mid - engined version of everyone's favorite American sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette , is coming. The only reason the Corvette would switch to a mid - engined layout is for performance. Engineers at GM understand that there is a limit to how much power a front-engine supercar can put

Multiple mid - engined Corvette prototypes followed, and more than 50 years later, we're finally about to see the first production model. Unless you're on this short list of attendees you'll have to wait a bit longer to see the new supercar in person, but Chevrolet will have a live stream of the big event that

Also in the back, according to Chevy. Despite the fact that the motor is now behind the cabin, there is space carved out even further back for a small trunk, designed to fit the C8's removable targa top.

It's not the expansive cargo shelf we enjoyed in the C7, but chief engineer Tadge Juechter promised there would be room for two sets of golf clubs "or sneaking your children into a drive-in" in the Corvette's trunk.

That seems optimistic if you ask us, but Juechter has had the chance to play Tetris in this new trunk and we haven't (yet). If you're the kind of old man who insists on taking his Corvette to the links, be prepared to bring a Sunday bag.

Mid - engined layout is one small step for sports cars, one giant leap for General Motors and Corvette . And it is coming here!

Test mules of the mid - engined Chevy Corvette continue to be spotted testing. For as much as Chevy is keeping quiet about the mid - engined C8 Corvette to the public, it’s hard to deny the car is coming when we’ve spotted countless test mules out on the road.

As with most frunks, this one looks deep but not particularly wide, so don't expect to transport anything really unwieldy.

The combination of the frunk and the trunk make up a total of 13 cubic feet of storage space, says Chevy.

The inexorable march of progress is often a good thing. In this case, moving the engine behind the driver could finally launch the Corvette into the orbit of sharp-handling European supercars from Ferrari and Porsche.

But improvements usually demand sacrifices, and this time one of those sacrifices was the previous-generation Corvette's wide, flat cargo area.

Chevy knows its demographic: there may not be room for a Home Depot haul or a smallish bicycle in the back anymore, but no need to reschedule that standing tee time.

Cathedral Moves Its Pews to Make Room for Mini-Golf Course.
"You can't have fun in cathedrals then you don't know what fun is," said Rev. Matthew Rushton. Don’t worry about choosing between Sunday service and an afternoon on the green because this English cathedral has a built-in golf course. The Rochester Cathedral in Kent pushed aside its chairs to make space for a mini-golf course to show its devout followers that church can and should be fun. ''The Archbishop of Canterbury said recently that if you can't have fun in cathedrals then you don't know what fun is, and he's absolutely right,” Rev. Matthew Rushton told Reuters.
