NATHAN Brown expects Lance Hohaia to return to the line-up this Friday when Saints take on Leeds Rhinos.The Kiwi injured his foot during July’s win in London but has recovered in time for the trip to Headingley.“The last couple of weeks have been good for us and importantly we went into it on the back of a win,” Brown said. “That has given us confidence ahead of this week. It’s a boost that Lance will come back too. He’s trained with us for the last fortnight and hasn’t been rushed in anyway.“It’s huge to have him back. Lance knows his way around and has had a good year for us.“There’s a lot at stake on Friday. Realistically, if we win two games then nothing can change on the ladder. We will go into all three games as underdogs and that isn’t a bad thing but probably right with the number of people we have missing.”Saints head into Friday’s game four points clear of Leeds who will be buoyed by their Challenge Cup win at the weekend.Historically, it can be difficult to back up the week after a Final appearance but Brown is expecting the usual tough match in Yorkshire.“Let’s be honest, it’s always hard playing Leeds,” he said. “They have been together for a long time and retained that nucleus of players. That has been the key cornerstone of their success.“If they go lose someone they replace with someone good or better. When Keith Senior moved on Kallum Watkins came in. They needed another centre so they brought in Joel Moon. That’s what Leeds do; they are well run at the top and whatever coach they bring in always seems to be right for the team.“I enjoy going to Headingley. It is a good field and you have to rise to the challenge. The players enjoy going there too and if you do well you deserve a pat on the back.“We know what they are capable of at their best, so all we can do is prepare for that.”Tickets for Friday’s match at Headingley (kick off 8pm) remain on sale from the Ticket Office at Langtree Park, by calling 01744 455 052 or by logging on here.
In this particular case, the 2020 XT6 slots in as the luxury family car. Shorter, narrower, and lower than an Escalade – with all the benefits that come from that in squeezing into parking spots – it also promises to be more nimble than its bigger sibling. Outside, Cadillac’s crisp design language still looks sharp. The grille has been pared back, similar to the aesthetic in recent concept cars like the Cadillac Escala from back in 2016, while the LED lighting is unmistakably recognizable. Two versions will be offered, the 2020 XT6 Premium Luxury and the 2020 XT6 Sport. Big changes were promised for Cadillac, and the automaker has wasted no time in unveiling the 2020 XT6, its all-new three-row crossover SUV. Arriving on the eve of the Detroit Auto Show 2019, the new XT6 adds a fresh nameplate to Cadillac’s XT-range of SUVs and crossovers. 2020 Cadillac XT6 Gallery The Premium Luxury trim will get Bright Galvano accents on the grille, side window moldings, and on the roof rails. It has unique front and rear fascias, too, with red taillight lenses and through-fascia exhaust outlets. 20-inch wheels are standard. As for the XT6 Sport, that gets a black grille with a specific, V-Series-inspired pattern. There are matching black window moldings and roof rails, too, while the front and rear fascias get tinted clear taillight lenses. Again, 20-inch wheels are standard, though 21-inch wheels are available.Either way, under the hood there’s a 3.6-liter V6 good for 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift. Four driving modes are offered, and the engine can automatically deactivate two of its cylinders for frugality. The XT6 Premium Luxury is front-wheel drive as standard, with all-wheel drive an option. The XT6 Sport is all-wheel drive as standard. The latter also gets a Sport Control active twin-clutch AWD system, with active yaw control, along with Continuous Damping Control active handling and a faster steering ratio.As for the cabin, that aims for simplicity and minimalist, albeit with no sacrificing comfort features. Premium Luxury models get exotic wood trim, while the Sport gets carbon fiber. A 14-speaker Bose Performance Series audio system is optional, as is semi-aniline leather seating, an air ionizer, automatic heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row outboard seats, and a standard heated steering wheel. Adaptive cruise control is optional, as is night vision and a power hands-free tailgate. Keyless entry is available, as is NFC phone pairing and 15W wireless charging. An HD surround vision camera can be added, too. The third row is power-folding as standard, while there’s remote fold-down for the second-row seating. The second row also offers tip/pitch-and-slide. For safety, forward collision alerts, automatic emergency braking with front pedestrian braking, parking assistance front and rear, lane change alerts with blind spot warnings, rear cross traffic alerts, and lane keep assistance are all standard. Adaptive cruise control, automatic parking assistance, rear pedestrian alert, and reverse automatic braking are optional. You can also have a surround vision recorder and a head-up display. The latest Cadillac user experience is onboard, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support; it’s controlled either via the 8-inch touchscreen or a new rotary controller. 4G LTE with WiFi hotspot support is standard, and there’s natural address entry for the new navigation system. There are two USB charging ports for each row of seats. The 2020 Cadillac XT6 will go on sale this spring. Pricing and specific availability will be announced closer to release.
New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday said several Congress workers, including some from Valmiki community, joined the party in presence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.Kejriwal welcomed them and said they would have to work together for the development of the city and the country. “We have fixed to a large extent the corrupt exploitative system that has existed for the last 70 years. This has been possible because Delhi elected an honest government. But this project is much longer than just four years. After winning the next election in Delhi, we have to continue to work towards a better country, a better system. We are committed to ensuring a dignified life for all Delhiites,” Kejriwal said in the statement.Leader of the Maharishi Valmiki Ambedkar Navyuvak Sangh, Harkisan Tank joined the party today, along with his supporters. Tank said, “The Valmiki community is a very backward group in terms of education. Aam Aadmi Party is the only party that makes education a top priority and works on improving government schools. Our children mostly study in government schools and we have learnt that Delhi’s government schools are the best in the country, even competing with private schools.”Asha Verma, a Congress member from Kirari who joined the party today said, We will work with all our energy and enthusiasm to ensure you are re-elected next year.” aap arvind kejriwalDelhi CongressHarkisan TankValmiki community First Published: June 26, 2019, 7:17 PM IST
‘Legend of the White Dragon’ Reunites Original Power RangersThe Original ‘Power Rangers’ Movie Should Have Stayed Small Stay on target It’s Morphin’ Time! Thanks to a new Lego Ideas project you may finally be able to add some awesome reproductions of the Power Rangers to your minifig collection.The whole team is here: Zack, Kimberly, Billy, Trini, Jason, and Tommy are ready to do whatever it takes to keep Rita Repulsa and her minions from wreaking havoc in Angel Grove. Alpha 5 faithfully mans the Command Center, ensuring that everything is running smoothly in case Zordon needs to call the Power Rangers to action. As awesome as it would be for Lego to make an oversized semi-translucent minifig head for Zordon this would probably just be a screen-printed element.The Command Center itself is a relatively simple build, but if you watched the show you know it’s a pretty accurate reproduction of the “real” thing. In case you didn’t here it is in all its 90s glory:With the Power Rangers movie due to hit theaters in March of next year, the timing for this Ideas pitch couldn’t be better. Unless, of course, Lego already has plans in place to offer up sets of their own… but even if they do there’s still room for a retro set based on the original series.Is there really a chance that Lego would approve a set like this? Their decision makers have had no problem giving the green light to licensed nostalgia so far. We’ve already seen awesome some Ideas sets like Ecto-1, Marty, Doc, and the DeLorean, Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who, Wall-E, and the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine. In January, they’re set to release a set of brick-built Adventure Time characters.Now head on over to the Lego Ideas project page and pledge your support, Geeks! The set needs a few thousand more votes before Lego will even consider it.
