Subaru is giving the 2016 BRZ and WRX STI a new splash of color with the Series Hyper Blue editions coming this fall. They both wear contrasting, black trim on the outside and bring the cerulean hue for some portions of the interior, as well.
Continental Europe has had blistering heat over the past week, with Spain and Portugal becoming particularly hot. Of Spain’s 50 provinces 43 were put on alert for exceptionally high temperatures, with the mercury widely topping 40C (104F), and some places experiencing temperatures as high as 44C.
The intense heat has also increased the potential for forest fires; woodlands, within a large area, are considered at extreme risk of catching alight. The heat-wave is expected to spread and persist for much of Europe over the coming days.
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As Attorney General Eric Schneiderman stood on the sidewalk in front of the Sunset Park Library, describing the new $25 million project about to begin, he was heckled by residents opposed to the venture.
“A new expanded library will soon rise here topped by 50 truly affordable apartments,” Schneiderman said.
But a number of community residents were having none of it, WCBS 880′ Rich Lamb reports.

At 12:01 this morning, NBA General Mangers try to check off their Christmas list by picking up the best free-agent money can buy. There already have been massive contracts signed by New Orleans’ Anthony Davis 5 years/145 million, Portland’s Damian Lillard 5 years/120 million, and Miami’s Goran Dragic 5 years/90 million. Though these deals will impact the future of the NBA, none really help the respective teams for this coming season. Players such as Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge, Memphis’ Marc Gasol, and Los Angeles’s DeAndre Jordan have set up meetings with various teams, and seem to be the blue chippers in this free agency class.
The trick in the merry-go-round that is free agency, is to never seem to desperate. If you have cap space to sign a key free agent but the prize jewel is off the table, there will be a B-level player getting a bunch of money to get booed night after night. Deals that were given to players such as Joe Johnson, Eddy Curry, and Carlos Boozer were the “we had to pay someone” type deals.
The time of free agency can take a team from being an after-thought to a title contender in just one contract signature. Basketball’s free agency really shows how teams value not only their own players, but the players around the league.

Several pieces of autographed Beatles memorabilia, including a postcard signed by all four members during their stay in Miami Beach while filming an appearance for the Ed Sullivan Show, are up for auction via Lelands.
The postcard from 1964 is currently priced at over $12,500 and was signed during the group’s stay at the Deauville Hotel, a picture of which is featured on the front side. The Beatles taped their second Ed Sullivan Show set in the hotel’s Napoleon Ballroom a week after their iconic New York City debut.
Another lot boasts three Apple Records bank checks signed by John Lennon (undated), George Harrison (dated 1971) and Ringo Starr (1972). While there’s no check signed by Paul McCartney, the lot does include a secretarial signed guitar.
Lelands is also advertising a handful of other unique Beatles lots, including a vintage Ludwig drum set designed exactly like Starr’s (starting price $1,500) and an unused ticket for a 1965 Beatles gig in Portland, Oregon. The ticket — currently priced at $1,100 — reportedly belonged to a girl whose religious mother forbade her from attending the show; the ticket was confiscated and kept in the family Bible in order to ward off evil spirits.
Among the other notable items currently up for auction are unpublished original negatives of the Who taken at a 1965 gig (starting price, $1,000); a sharp, rhinestone-studded suit James Brown wore onstage ($1,000); and a vulgar, bootleg “Peanuts” comic strip drawn by Jim Morrison. The strip finds Morrison warping Charles M. Schulz’s beloved characters into twisted horn dogs: In one vignette, Lucy and Charlie Brown barter for sex, while in another, Linus declares, “I think I got syphilis from that whore down the street.”
Lelands’ entire rock and roll catalog is available to peruse on the auction house’s website.
For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.
I think this suit is a great example of a very modern, yet very conservative, suit. The tapered pants hemmed right above the ankle, the zips on the pants — all paired with a really traditional blazer — love. The whole look is sleek, professional, and modern. The length of the pants puts this suit firmly in the “fun” bucket — i.e., not for court or a big client meeting — but it really tests the boundaries for me. The jacket (Ingrid wool blazer) is $1,295, and the pants (Vivian wool-gabardine tapered pants) are $610.
