Prominent as it is, Geneva’s international motor show is getting hit by the question of relevance, just like Detroit, Paris, and all the rest. Indeed, Tier 1 suppliers, amateur racing clubs, and hopeful startups are starting to fill in the spaces of Geneva’s Palexpo voided by OEMs like Volvo, Ford, Opel, and Jaguar Land Rover—all of whom skipped this year’s event. Meanwhile, the cottage hypercar makers and the “mainstream” exotic and supercar manufacturers are still engaged in a horsepower war, with the magic number hiked up to 1,500 this year. But more than ever, this year’s show is about pure battery electrics going mainstream, whether as a performance-car power alternative or as a way to commute cleanly through urban areas. As the Polestar 2 takes the space behind the location of Volvo’s old stand, Elon Musk’s sycophants still see Tesla’s future as the sole proprietor of potentially profitable premium … [Read more...] about 2019 Geneva Auto Show Hits, Misses, and Revelations
Young Will O’Brien was not someone to stand still and let life pass him by. Growing up in Newport as the city's coal trade hit its dusty, dirty, prosperous peak in the early years of the 20th Century, he would have had to fight for attention in his busy small terraced home. He was one of six children of a Catholic couple who would have eight if two of their babies had not made it, as was common at a time there were no antibiotics to treat common childhood conditions and 15% of infants died. His stonemason dad John would have had no shortage of work as building began on the biggest expansion of the town’s docks in 1905 and the Transporter bridge opened in 1906. Blue-eyed, curly-brown-haired Will must have had to fight for his opportunities but as the region's economy boomed there was much to feed his ambition. Like the generation around him, he came of age in a teeming, changing, modernising world full of hope for the possibilities in life and love that the new century might … [Read more...] about The story of a Welsh Tommy
• Enjoy "A Bounty of Brahms" from the estimable CityMusic Cleveland. The show features Brahms' "Double Concerto for Violin and Cello," the last of his masterful works for orchestra, performed by renowned soloists Tessa Lark and Edward Arron, and the upbeat Symphony No. 2, which CityMusic notes the composer himself said "sounded so merry and tender it was as though it were especially written for a newly wedded couple." Performances are in Collinwood, Beachwood, Willoughby Hills, Slavic Village and Lakewood. (Wednesday, Oct. 24, through Sunday, Oct. 28) • Fill your night with "Days of Absence" at Karamu House. The play, written by Douglas Turner and directed by Nathan A. Lilly, is part of Karamu's Social Justice Series. It's described this way: "A one-act hilarious satire about an imaginary Southern town where all the black people have suddenly disappeared. The only ones left are sick and lying in hospital beds, refusing to get well. The Mayor sends a national plea for the … [Read more...] about 29 things to do in Cleveland through Oct. 31
George C. Herring 20 October 2018 9:00 AM 20 October 2018 9:00 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy 1945–1975 Max HastingsWilliam Collins, pp.784, £30 The 50th anniversary of the Vietnam war has produced an outpouring of books, along with Ken Burns’s 18-hour television spectacular, which sparked in the United States yet another round of heated debate on the war. The journalist and military historian Max Hastings’s fast-paced and often compelling narrative will surely rank as one of the best products of this half-century reappraisal. Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy is a monumental undertaking. Many books analyse major Vietnam war policy decisions. Others discuss military operations; still others recount personal experiences. Hastings does all three in a single volume, although he gives greatest attention to the on-the-ground activities of North and South Vietnamese, NLF and NVA, Americans, Australians and … [Read more...] about How on earth did North Vietnam prevail against the world’s greatest power?
