“The new money is interested in old masters, but it wants what Duveen sold to the robber barons. It wants names,” said Hugo Nathan, a co-founder of the London advisers Beaumont Nathan.

Going into combat with a robotic squadmate is becoming the norm. Wheeled and tracked systems proved themselves to the Pentagon in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq by defusing roadside bombs, conducting reconnaissance, and breaching buildings. Building these bots during a shooting war is like pressing fast-forward on research and development (and funding). So in a short amount of time, defense firms have designed and field-tested an array of unmanned ground robots, including 5-pound throwable recon bots and a 370-pound tracked vehicle capable of carrying machine guns and rocket launchers.
The Russians have not sat idly by as this revolution rolled past, and they are ready to show the world their progress in June at an official arms show. There they'll display families of ground robots that can clear minefields, fight fires, and shoot anti-tank missiles. Members of the defense ministry have told press that by 2025, one-third of Russia's military hardware will be robotic.

So the 国务院：完善定向降准、信贷政策支持再贷款等结构性货币政策工具 when the T-14 Armata main battle tank rolled in the parade (see top of page). This is the first new tank designed by Russia since the iconic T-72 rolled off the assembly line in the 1970s. It is built to protect the crew, using an unmanned turret and plenty of armor. The speculation, based on media reports and backup up by the design, is that the tank will receive a new 152mm main gun, making it a well-armed apex predator that is hard to kill.
Meanwhile, the United States is busy trying to keep its aging tanks ready for action. Or, as the Army puts it, "Our priority focus is to enhance capabilities of the current force through low risk and cost-effective fleet modernization." The effort has focused on keeping the M1A1 Abrams ready and deadly in the 21st century. The latest upgrade, under way now, incorporates better thermal sights, display panels, and remotely operated guns.
At the same ceremony in New York, Dominic Barton, McKinsey’s global managing director, awarded the Bracken Bower Prize for young business writers to Christopher Clearfield and András Tilcsik. Their proposed book would look at how businesses can manage the risk of catastrophic failure. The 15,000 prize goes to the best proposal for a business book about the challenges and opportunities presented by growth by authors under 35.
Think you’ve had some bad job interviews this year? This survey is guaranteed tcheer you up (unless you happen tbe part of it). When staffing firm OfficeTeam asked 600 managers across North America tdescribe the most embarrassing interview blunders they had seen in 2014, here’s what they said.
According to Brett Mills, senior lecturer in film and television studies at the University of East Anglia in the UK, Friends was the first sitcom that directly addressed the problems faced by twenty-somethings. Watching the show feels like reading the story of a young person’s life.
But even in a bad economy some jobs are just not worth it. Are there any telltale signs you should be looking for when trying to decide if you throw in the towel? Here are ten signs to look for to determine if it's time to find a new job:
Mark Rutte, the Dutch prime minister whose People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) is slightly ahead of the PVV, has seen his poll numbers rise in recent days because of his hardline stance with Ankara. On Tuesday he called Mr Erdogan’s comments “a disgusting distortion of history”, adding: “We will not lower ourselves to this level. It is totally unacceptable.”
Vo said with each plane flying 12 to 16 segments a day, one late flight can easily cascade into several delays in a single day. To offset that, the airline’s systems operation and control center makes adjustments when needed. That can involve inserting spare planes and extra crews into the schedule to make sure flights stay on time.

One thing HIMARS does well is fire rockets with accuracy. The pinnacle of this is the long-range ATACMS (army tactical missile system) guided missile with a 500-lb explosive warhead. Each HIMARS can be secretly configured to carry one of these large, GPS-guided weapons. Lockheed Martin, who makes the system, says that 570 ATACMS missiles have been fired in combat, and on May 15 the Army signed a $174 million contract with Lockheed to make more.
The Russians, on the other hand, tend to go for volume over accuracy. Their Multiple Launch Rocket Systems are trucks fit with lots of rocket tubes. The BM-21 Grad, for example, is a six-wheeled vehicle with forty launch tubes that can all fire within seconds. (Compare that to the 6-shot, more accurate HIMARS.)
There is a salary gap of nearly 22 per cent between male and female graduates three years after they finished their courses, $90,000 compared to $73,000. That gap had been 17 per cent whenstudents first graduated, so thisdifference has widened over time(see chart).

When reflecting on the year in film, moviegoers often remember strong performances, or they might consider how a movie worked as a narrative, the emotions it evoked, what chances it took.

But that moment, try as Google might, has yet to come. Some reports have named 2014 as the year when wearable devices will hit the mainstream, but a newer study from L2, a digital research firm, confirms what many have been quietly fighting for: wearables are still not socially acceptable, creating a significant hurdle to further sales.
Since its first release in 1995, many new versions and sequels have been created. However, fans say none could replace the breath-taking and tragic tale of the original.

马克?高恩洛夫(Mark Gongloff)在《赫芬顿邮报》(Huffington Post)上警告说：“一季度美国经济增长的大幅降级揭示了经济体挥之不去的疲弱，暴露了华盛顿执迷于财政紧缩的愚蠢，并给美联储最新的乐观打了一记响亮的耳光。”而随着政治局势的恶化，增长速度还会进一步放缓。
当晚的最大赢家可能还要属主持人蒂娜?费和埃米?珀勒，这是两人第二次搭档主持金球奖颁奖典礼，且她们今年表现丝毫不逊去年，创下了1,970万观众的六年来最高收视率。金球奖颁奖典礼由好莱坞外国记者协会(Hollywood Foreign Press Association)举办，举办地点位于加利福尼亚州贝弗利山庄的贝弗利山希尔顿酒店(Beverly Hills Hilton)。
You're networking – yes! But you're networking so thoroughly within your industry that word gets back to your boss. "The world is small," says Andrea Kay, career consultant and author of "This Is How To Get Your Next Job," so this kind of thing does happen. When sharing your résumé and other job-search materials with new and old professional contacts, explicitly state that your hunt is confidential, Foss says。
Referencing the American chat show host, he quipped: 'I've always wanted to meet Jay Leno,' before laughing to himself. Clearly unimpressed, Dallas Buyers Club star Jared hit back: 'Sorry, what was your name again?'But audiences seemed to pick up on the atmosphere between the two, with one viewer joking: 'Think Jared Leto got a bit paranoid about Grinder looking at him.'
With most of our favorite shows on or approaching the dreaded holiday hiatus, it's time to reflect on the women that made the fall 2011 TV season so great.
The reading is just below economists' forecasts but it's not altogether surprising. When the People's Bank of China unexpectedly cut interest rates last month, some analysts said the move was likely a pre-emptive one and that a spate of weak data was likely ahead. Well, here it is.
Self-driving cars, selfie sticks, drones, touchscreen devices, e-cigarettes, jetpacks, and many other things seem like fairly modern inventions. Indeed, most of their "inventors" list them as newly invented and even go as far as seeking patents. But the fact is, many of these "inventions" have already been in existence for quite some time. They may have earlier lookalikes that ended up not going into production or that went into limited production due to one reason or another. Some also made it into full production but were recalled due to poor sales.
Russian artillery is getting a makeover. This year's May Day parade showcased the newest self-propelled guns in the Russian arsenal, the 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV. As part of one recent enhancement used to score precise hits, its 155mm round can now hone in on a target designated by a laser. The real advantage in this design is the ability to choose different rounds and have a robotic system automatically load it.
