SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A woman died when her car was washed off a bridge on Saturday as drenching rains in Texas spawned flood waters so powerful they swept a city bus off the street, San Antonio officials said.
Arjen Robben's goal in the 89th minute gave Bayern the Champions League title with a 2-1 win and wrapped up a frenetic final that featured great goalkeeping, says Grant Wahl.
Filed under: Convertible, Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet, GM Despite the fact that General Motors has already pulled the wraps off of the highly anticipated Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray - in both coupe and convertible forms - there's still a lot we don't know about The General's new halo car. When it first launched, GM stated that the 'Vette's new 6.2-liter LT1 V8 would put out an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. But some PDF scans found by the folks at the Corvette7 forum site show that the Stingray coupe might actually throw down 455 hp and 460 lb-ft - increases of 5 hp and 10 lb-ft over the original numbers, and gains of 25 hp and 36 lb-ft versus the current car's 6.2-liter LS3 V8. If these PDF scans are to be believed, it looks like only the coupe will benefit from this slightly more powerful setup, as a similar spec list for the Corvette Stingray Convertible states that the droptop will make 450 hp and 450 lb-ft - spot on with the original estimates. Official fuel economy numbers are still unknown, though GM has previously stated that the 'Vette is "expected to improve" upon the current car's EPA highway rating of 26 miles per gallon. We expect the officially official numbers to be revealed later this year, closer to the Corvette's launch.

Whichever way the mistral wind blows on Sunday when Steven Spielberg’s jury hands out its awards, it’s fair to say that for critics, the Competition has been divisive. While a number of films received huzzahs in the Palais, several were met with mixed reactions. Among the best received were the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, Steven Soderbergh’s Behind The Candelabra, Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty, Hirokazu Kore-Eda’s Like Father Like Son, and Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue Is The Warmest Color. Among the not so hot were Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives and Takashi Miike’s Shield Of Straw, both of which were subject to boos during press screenings. And, yet, each has its supporters. Only God Forgives had something to live up to. Winding Refn and star Ryan Gosling were the darlings of Cannes two years ago when the former won the directing prize for Drive. But God Forgives‘ violence and extreme exercise in style were a turn-off for many. Still, The Guardian gave it five stars. One veteran critic adds that supporters also “tend to be French and genre specialists.” Libération calls Gosling, “The greatest actor of all time in the galaxy of the world.” Shield Of ...
