Eagle-Eyed 5-Year-Old Helps Cops Nab Ring-Tailed Lemur Thief


Newser reports a 5-year-old boy now has a lifetime membership at the San Francisco Zoo. The membership came as a thank-you from zoo officials for helping police nab a thief who stole Maki, an arthritic 21-year-old lemur. Five-year-old James Trinh left his preschool Thursday in Daly City, about 5 miles from the zoo, and spotted the primate. There's a lemur! There's a lemur! James Trinh Maki ran from the school's parking lot and hid in a miniature playhouse on the playground. The school called police who quickly alerted animal control and zoo officials, who eventually coaxed the lemur into a transport cage. Police said Friday they took 30-year-old Cory McGilloway into custody on a variety of charges both related and unrelated to the theft.

  • Mazda CX-5 Touring Petrol AWD Design Preview in Eternal Blue

    Mazda’s iconic “World Car Design of the Year”-winning roadster has evolved over the years, yet always remained true to the Jinba Ittai philosophy of creating perfect harmony between driver and car. The MX-5, a timeless masterpiece – refined by Mazda’s craftsmen over four generations of customer feedback – celebrates its 35th birthday in 2024. With over 1.1 million units sold, the community of MX-5 enthusiasts continues to grow.With the 2024 MX-51 Mazda further reinforces the Jinba Ittai ethos by introducing DSC-Track, a new Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) mode optimised for circuit driving, and a newly developed Asymmetric Limited Slip Differential (Asymmetric LSD).DSC-Track prioritises driver safety by implementing over-steer control in hazardous spins that the driver is unable to correct. DSC-Track allows the driver to remain in control until the very last second, only then it will intervene. The Asymmetric Limited Slip Differential (Asymmetric LSD) stabilises vehicle turn-in behaviour. In particular, bolstering the slip-limiting force during deceleration improves stability when braking into a turn, where reduced rear wheel ground load leads to vehicle instability. Optimizing slip limiting force and preload specifically for the MX-5's engine, suspension, and tyre characteristics results in smoother and more linear turning performance. Turning stability has thus been enhanced to make manoeuvring easier in urban areas, as well as on winding roads.The 2024 Mazda MX-5 features advanced LED headlights that now seamlessly combine with the daytime running lights. Furthermore, the rear lights have undergone subtle revisions, and LEDs are now used also on the turn signals. The exterior changes are complete with a new paint option, "Aero Grey Metallic", which replaces “Platinum Quartz”, and 16- and 17-inch wheel designs.Enhancements for 2024 also extend to the interior, which gains a redesigned 8.8-inch centre display with Android Auto and Apple Car Play running wirelessly, a frameless rear-mirror and a suede-like seatmaterial called Leganu.

  • Best Cars of the Year 2021/2022

    1st Kia EV6With the new EV6, Kia is bringing a model with a long-range, emission-free drive, 800-volt fast charging capability and a distinctive design to the crossover SUV market. The EV6 is the first Kia to be based on the company's new platform specially designed for battery-powered electric vehicles (BEV).1st Hyundai IONIQ 5As the first model built on Hyundai’s new dedicated architecture for battery electric vehicles called Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), IONIQ 5 sets the benchmark to redefine electric mobility lifestyles with sustainable and innovative features – from the eco-friendly materials in its interior design, to ultra-fast charging and Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) capabilities.3rd Audi e-tron GTThe four-door coupé, which will be introduced on the market as an RS model at the same time, reinterprets the classic idea of the gran turismo: Its design is highly emotive, its technology is revolutionary. Two powerful electric motors provide confident electric all-wheel drive and stunning road performance.4th Toyota GR YarisThe new Toyota GR Yaris is a pure performance car, born from Toyota's title-winning experience in the World Rally Championship. Forged from success in the heat of competition, it brings motorsport technology and design directly to the world of the road car, true to TOYOTA GAZOO Racing's ethos for making ever-better cars that are intrinsically rewarding and fun to drive.5th Ford Mustang Mach-EDesigned from the ground-up to change perceptions of what an electric car could and should be, the all-new Mustang Mach-E is the perfect vehicle to take a starring role. The Mustang Mach-E wears the famous Mustang badge with pride and is the first-ever electrified vehicle to carry the name as well as the attitude.6th Fiat 500The New 500 is a true milestone in the FIAT electrification process: the most iconic and popular FIAT model has become totally new, full-electric and electric alone. Around the world, the 500 is the epitome of the Italian car: beautiful, a classic design, a work of art, an inspiration. 7th Porsche TaycanThe Porsche Taycan is the first production vehicle with 800-volt technology. Its drive system components use this voltage. At the same power output, half the cross-section of conventional 400-volt technology is sufficient for cables. In the Taycan, this saves around four kilograms in weight, reduces transmission losses and requires less installation space.8th Citroen AMICitroën is launching its electrification offensive with Ami - 100% ëlectric, and innovates by offering an individual mobility solution that allows people to move around in a protected manner in a closed, 100% electric object, accessible to all. Its particularly competitive “à la carte” offers are adapted to everyone's uses.9th Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVThe Outlander PHEV has a 2.4L 16-valve inline 4 cylinder engine. It has a supremely efficient Atkinson-cycle with a long expansion stroke. This makes it much more efficient, so it offers better fuel economy and less emissions. This is a type of internal combustion engine invented by James Atkinson in 1882.10th VW PoloWith more than 18 million units built, the Polo is one of the world’s most successful compact cars. The Polo may be small in size, but it is one of the greats of the Volkswagen brand: for years, it has been regularly claiming a place among the top three best-selling model series.
