Four rare — and original — Shelby Cobras heading to auction next month

first_img Trending Videos The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever Trending in Canada The oldest Cobra here is a 1964 Factory Stage III outfitted with a 289 cubic-inch V8. This race-spec snake is the only one in the world built for street use, and was originally finished in Princess Blue before the first owner sent it back to the factory to be repainted in Ford Rangoon Red. It is considered to be one of the most highly optioned Cobras of its day.The last Cobra is a real doozy, a 1965 Dragonsnake, originally built by Shelby for drag racing and one of only six to have that distinction. It was specially ordered in yellow by brothers Don and Mike Reimer to match their Thunderbird tow vehicle. This one is also a Factory Stage 3 car. Each Cobra is estimated to sell around the US$2 million mark. The auction will take place between May 14 and 19 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 1967 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C Roadster  Handout / Mecum ‹ Previous Next › Mecum will auction off four rare (and original) Shelby Cobras next month from the estate of late car collector Steven Juliano. Per MotorAuthority, the snakes up for auction will be a 1967 427 S/C Roadster and a 1966 427 Roadster, plus a 1965 289 Dragonsnake and a 1964 289 Roadster.The ’67 S/C ticks all of the boxes of what you’d expect the “classic” Cobra to be, fitted with the outrageous 427 cubic-inch Ford V8. Side pipes, hood scoop, roll hoop, and wide hips are all present. On top of that, it’s an S/C model, short for Semi-Competition. Only 31 of these vehicles were converted from race cars into street spec, making them an extremely rare beast — especially this one, with only 10,760 miles on the clock.The second car is a 1966 model-year Cobra. It’s also fitted with a 427, but lacking the side pipes, hood scoop, and roll hoop — all of which makes it almost rarer and more unique than the S/C. It traded hands in the U.S. a few times before heading to Japan in 1987, where it was kept in perfect shape until 2010, when Juliano acquired it.

Paper Talk: Mega-money offer for PSDT?

first_img‘  14.1K  1004 Posted in News, Sharks, Springboks, Stormers, Super Rugby, Top headlines Tagged Bulls, Manie Libbok, Pieter-Steph du Toit, sharks, Stormers Pieter-Steph du Toit and John Dobson A round up of what some of South Africa’s leading Sunday papers are saying, including reports of an offer from France for Springbok flank Pieter-Steph du Toit.Sunday newspaper Rapport carries big news for the 2019 World Player of the Year. According to the report by Brenden Nel, French giants Montpellier have offered Du Toit a three-year contract worth R75 million – with a monthly wage of just over R2 million – which would make him the highest paid player in the world.The report goes on to say that Du Toit will be in talks with his agent over what to do. South Africa’s player have been given a 21-day grace period until 14 May to find better deals overseas – as part of the salary cut agreement due to the Covid-19 pandemic.In further transfer news, it appears that Vodacom Bulls flyhalf Manie Libbok could be on his way to Durban as incoming director of rugby Jake White continues his revolution of the squad. The report by Hendrik Cronje states that the Sharks are looking for a player to cover both flyhalf and fullback during the Currie Cup as they expect both Aphelele Fassi and Curwin Bosch to be called up to the Springbok squad.White reportedly does not see Libbok as a first-choice flyhalf and would rather let him go to Kings Park – where he could get more game time. After Bosch, the Sharks currently have Boeta Chamberlain – who made his Vodacom Super Rugby debut this year – as well as ex-Maties flyhalf Jordan Chait and 2019 SA Schools star Kian Meadon as flyhalves.Photo: Ryan Wilkisky/BackpagePix World Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVMaverick coach Eddie Jones has named his Test dream team made up of players he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.SA Rugby MagUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?

The Wisdom Your Body Knows

first_imgThis has been a golden age for brain research. We now have amazing brain scans that show which networks in the brain ramp up during different activities. But this emphasis on the brain has subtly fed the illusion that thinking happens only from the neck up. It’s fed the illusion that the advanced parts of our thinking are the “rational” parts up top that try to control the more “primitive” parts down below. … … Lisa Feldman Barrett, of Northeastern University, also argues that a main purpose of the brain is to read the body, and to regulate what she calls the body budget. You may see a bully on the playground. Your brain then predicts your next action and speeds your heart rate and breathing to deal with it. You experience these changes as emotion — oh, this is fear or oh, this is anger — because your brain has created an emotion concept to make those physical changes meaningful. Read the whole story: The New York Times More of our Members in the Media > One of the leaders in this field is Stephen W. Porges of Indiana University. When you enter a new situation, Porges argues, your body reacts. Your heart rate may go up. Your blood pressure may change. Signals go up to the brain, which records the “autonomic state” you are in.last_img read more

Rex Ryan in reflective mood as Bills prepare to host Jets

first_img(AP Photo/File)ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ Regrets. Rex Ryan acknowledged that in retrospect, he has a few entering the final week of the season.The bold talk and big pronouncements Ryan made at the beginning of his tenure as the Bills coach have turned into unfulfilled promises 11 months later now that Buffalo has extended the NFL’s longest active playoff drought to a 16th consecutive season.And that gave Ryan pause for reflection on Wednesday with the Bills (7-8) preparing to close the season hosting his former team, the New York Jets (10-5).“I think the biggest thing, obviously, I wish I wouldn’t say some stupid things I said,” Ryan said. “My heart was in the right place. I thought I’m telling the truth. But at the same time, it’s like I never looked at it as, `What if this doesn’t go exactly the way I expect it to go?”’Ryan then answered his own question by saying: “Well, I’m seeing it right now.”Perhaps, he wondered, whether he needs to say less in light of the criticism he and the team have attracted.“Yeah, probably so, because you look at the impact that your words have in a negative light,” Ryan said. “As bad as I truly believed it, maybe I’ve learned that maybe it’s not the smartest thing to do.”The usually colorful and engaging Ryan was all business and little bluster. And even the prospect of spoiling his former team’s playoff chances _ the Jets can clinch a berth with a win or a tie _ barely raised a stir.He credited his successor in New York, Todd Bowles, as having done a great job.When informed Jets linebacker Calvin Pace suggested the game is going to be “a bloodbath,” Ryan responded with: “I don’t know why he’d say that.”There was no sign of the Clemson helmet, such as the one Ryan wore at the podium days before the Bills traveled to play the Jets in November. And there was no hint of the overly-emotional Ryan who punched the air and had his headset fly off on the sideline while celebrating Buffalo’s 22-17 win at the Meadowlands.The Bills have lost four of six since, while the Jets are 5-1, riding a five-game winning streak.“Yeah, I truly thought that game was going to set up that, `Hey, this one’s win and in,”’ Ryan said. “It is. It’s just only one team playing for it unfortunately.”There was at least some good news for Ryan.Following practice, co-owner Terry Pegula issued a statement announcing that Ryan and general manager Doug Whaley’s futures were secure for next season.While acknowledging expectations weren’t met, Pegula said the team’s management and coaching staff “are very capable and work well together.” He added, “This stable foundation is necessary to achieve long-term success.”The announcement did not come as a surprise, but it did end any lingering speculation that a change might be coming.Pegula and his wife, Kim, completed their first full season as owners. The franchise endured plenty of instability last offseason, when coach Doug Marrone abruptly opted out of his contract.Whaley has one year left on his contract.Stability has been in short supply in Buffalo during the playoff drought that began in 2000. In that span, the Bills are on their seventh coach and sixth GM.Ryan’s biggest cause of frustration is the criticism directed at his players, particularly an under-performing defense that ranks 20th in the NFL in yards allowed after finishing fourth last year.“I’m the guy that should be criticized,” Ryan said. “Our fans, look, they’re frustrated. They believe like I did. And I love the fact they believed in me. I feel bad that I didn’t deliver.”Ryan’s defense of his players has earned him their loyalty.Guard Richie Incognito doesn’t believe Ryan needs to change his approach.“Rex is Rex and that’s what I love about him. He wears his heart on his sleeve,” Incognito said. “He had the guts to put himself out there.”___AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img

Men’s Basketball: Feb. 24 Scoreboard

first_imgMcNeese State 77, Central Arkansas 60Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 67, Abilene Christian 44 At the outset, both teams came out ice cold from the field, with only two Thomas layups and a LaDarrien Williams jumper being scored in the first 6:30 of the game for a 4-2 Islanders lead. ACU scored the next three points to take a 5-4 edge before Thomas struck again with a deuce to put the visitors ahead once more. Garrett entered the game having made just 3 of 25 shots in the last three games and 1 of 16 from 3-point range. He knocked down 10 of 16 on Tuesday night, including 5 of 9 from long range to finish one point off his career high. The win moved the Cowboys to 11-15 overall and 5-10 in Southland Conference play. UCA fell to 1-24 on the season and 1-13 in the league. McNeese led 38-33 at the half but UCA came out and scored the first four points of the second half to cut the lead to 1 at 38-37. What followed was the longest scoring run of the season for the Cowboys – 20 straight. Garrett was one of four Cowboys to score in double-digits – the first time that’s happened since a 68-61 win over UNO on Jan. 31. Kevin Hardy added 16 points to go along with a career-high eight steals – one off the school single-game record – and six rebounds. Desharick Guidry recorded his 19th double-double of the season with 13 points and 11 rebounds and Jamaya Burr added 12 points with nine assists and six rebounds. After a McNeese timeout, Garrett heated up from the far side baseline and knocked down three straight 3s from the same spot to help build the lead back to 22 at 75-53 with 4:34 to play. UCA scored the final seven points as the Cowboys played to run out the clock. The Islanders will be back in action on Saturday night for Homecoming when they take on Sam Houston State. Tipoff is slated for 7 p.m. at the American Bank Center and the game will be televised by Root Sports Southwest with Tom Franklin and Neal Raphael on the call. – Return to Top – A total of 16 of those 20 points were on fast break chances as Hardy and Burr scored six each during that run. The first two buckets were jumpers by Guidry and Garrett but the rest came on layups and eight of the points came off of turnovers. McNeese went from leading 38-37 with 19:09 to play to going up 58-37 at the 13:29 mark. The Islanders held the Wildcats to 2-for-8 shooting with three turnovers in their first 11 possessions of the stanza. Most importantly, A&M-Corpus Christi held the Wildcats to 5-for-15 from beyond the arc, and just 1-for-6 in the second half.

Kamba led the Bears with 14 points while Jordan Howard scored 13.center_img Amin snapped that rally with a layup at the other end, and a Dale Francis free throw put the lead at 20-18. But Parker Wentz followed that with a four-point play, and the Wildcats took a 22-20 advantage. Jelani Currie drew the Islanders even with an offensive board and a pair of free throws, and then John Jordan got a steal and dunk to put the visitors up 24-22. The teams traded points over the next couple possessions, and Currie finished off the first-half scoring with a layup on a putback that made it 28-24 Islanders at the break. McNeese returns home to play its final three games beginning Saturday at 3:05 against Nicholls State. Ehab Amin led a balanced offensive attack with 16 points, while Rashawn Thomas added 14 points and seven boards and Bryce Douvier posted 11 points and nine boards. Harrison Hawkins led the Wildcats with 11 points in a losing effort. The Islanders shot 35 free throws and dominated the boards, 37-23. Out of the locker room, the Islanders came alive on both ends, with back-to-back three-balls from Dale Francis and Douvier sparking a 10-0 run to start the stanza. After the teams traded baskets on the next couple possessions, A&M-Corpus Christi came up with seven straight points, including a Brandon Pye three and an Emmanuel Toney putback to push the rally to 19-4 and the lead to 47-28. Austin Cooke snapped that rally with a layup, but the Islanders scored the next seven points, five at the free-throw line, to stretch the lead to a game-high 24. From there, the visitors were able to push the lead to as much as 26 in the closing minutes, with the final score sitting at 67-44.

The freshman scored the next 11 points for the Islanders, including a pair of triples and a three-point play, while ACU scored just four to give the visitors a 17-10 advantage. But Hawkins came on strong on the other side, hitting a pair of threes and adding a jumper for an 8-0 run on his own to put the Wildcats ahead 18-17.

Food banks reach out to the needy

first_img10 November 2009The South African government, working through four “food banks”, has distributed up to 600 tons of food to more than 100 000 people in need of emergency food relief since May, says Public Works Minister Geoff Doidge.Briefing the media in Cape Town this week, Doidge said that the four food banks, located in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal provinces, had distributed food through 900 agencies.Food bank networkEach food bank acts on behalf of social services agencies, by procuring food which is mainly donated by the food and grocery industries, government agencies, individuals and other organisations.The government plans to have a food bank, complemented by a network of village food banks, set up in each of the country’s nine provinces.The food banks are being set up under FoodBank South Africa, a non-profit organisation formed by the South African Forum for Food Security – a partnership between government, civil society and the corporate sector.Public-private partnershipsSouth Africa and sub-Sahara’s first food bank was launched in Cape Town in March, and already a number of countries around the world have set up their own networks of food banks.“We are grateful to the civil society and corporate sector for their cooperation in setting up the SA Food Bank and the community food bank networks,” Doidge said. “This is the kind of partnership that our country needs during these hard economic times.”He said government had also introduced various other measures to assist poor households in the production of food and collection of water. One was that households are being provided with agricultural starter packs which include seeds, farming implements and fertilisers.Micro farming projectsAnother measure is an intervention by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform, which together with the Food Agriculture Organisation, has so far helped finance eight micro farming projects through the UN’s Tele-Food Fund.Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries director general Kgabi Mogajane said the government was able to secure a grant of US$23 000 (R170 000) to fund the programme.The Department of Environmental Affairs has also initiated a rainwater harvesting programme aimed at rural areas plagued by water shortages.“We have what we call veggie towers which have been erected particularly in drier areas where we know very well that they don’t have adequate water,” said Mogajane.She said these towers had been erected in Muyexe, Limpopo and would also be set up in Riemvasmaak in the Northern Cape and Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal.For more information, visit the FoodBank South Africa websiteSource: BuaNewslast_img read more

Canada falling behind other nations because of Arctic moratorium CAPP

first_imgPaul Barnes, Atlantic Canada and Arctic director for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, says recent moves by the U.S. under President Donald Trump to reopen the Alaskan Arctic to drilling illustrate Canada’s “lost opportunities.”He says the ban on development creates uncertainty in the market and means Canada isn’t able to compete for investment dollars for Arctic drilling or related research, despite ongoing Arctic development by nations such as Norway and Russia.But LeBlanc says Ottawa is using its time to consult with northern people, governments and industry and come up with a science-based report to inform its review of the moratorium in 2021.“Done properly, oil and gas development can bring growth and prosperity to a region that in some cases may have been overlooked for a long time,” said LeBlanc.“However, the development … must be done properly with the full support of scientific data and research.” CALGARY, A.B. –  An oil and gas industry representative says Canada is “falling behind” the U.S. and other nations in developing its rich Arctic natural resources because of a five-year moratorium on offshore drilling in the North put in place in 2016.But Northern Affairs minister Dominic LeBlanc defends the ban as a necessary device to ensure the resource is developed in a way that is environmentally sensitive, allows Indigenous input and is based on science.The debate touched off in 2016 when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and then-U.S. president Barack Obama announced offshore Arctic development restrictions is being revisited at the Arctic Oil & Gas Symposium in Calgary.last_img read more
