Adam Sandler doesn’t need your respect. He just wants to make you laugh.
This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 3 EDITORS: EMBARGOED UNTIL SUNDAY, MARCH 19 - - - PITTSBURGH - During every Adam Sandler stand-up show, he straps on his electric guitar and sings a song. Unlike the bite-size ditties he's peppered through the set about selfies or baggy shorts, this one concerns his late, great "Saturday Night Live" buddy, Chris Farley. It is a perfect tribute. Sandler, singing softly as he strums in G, captures the complicated beauty of Farley as clips of his most memorable high jinks play on a giant screen behind him. The crowd roars as he references Farley's electrifying SNL turns as a Chippendales dancer and a motivational speaker "living in a van down by the river." There is a hush as Sandler slips into the bridge, a peek into his friend's vulnerability. "I saw him in the office, crying with his headphones on "Listening to a KC and the Sunshine Band song "I said, 'Buddy, how the hell is … [Read more...] about Adam Sandler doesn’t need your respect.

2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 First Drive Review: Meet One Of America’s Best EVs
I went into the launch of the new 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 ready to be mildly disappointed. I thought it’d be something of an afterthought, just the normally gas-powered GV70 crossover with batteries. And we know that in 2023, EVs designed to be EVs from the ground up tend to perform better than cars adapted for electric power after the fact. I also didn’t understand why Hyundai’s luxury division would do this since it already has an outstanding electric compact crossover in the Genesis GV60 . I figured the Electrified GV70 , which is built in Alabama , was a fast-tracked battery-swap job just to take advantage of the new tax credits , which require EVs to be assembled in North America. The Korean-built GV60 doesn’t qualify. Folks, when I’m wrong, I’m wrong. The Electrified GV70 is a stellar addition to the brand’s growing portfolio of EVs , and there are even some ways that it outclasses the GV60 – not to mention a lot of other competitors in this space. … [Read more...] about 2023 Genesis Electrified GV70 First Drive Review: Meet One Of America’s Best EVs
Isotta Fraschini Hypercar test plan outlined ahead of Monza WEC debut
Listen to this article Development of the Tipo 6 LMH Competizione led by Michelotto in Italy has continued since the launch at the end of February of the completed car powered by a bespoke three-litre twin-turbo V6 developed by HWA and a hybrid system supplied by Williams Advanced Engineering. It is currently running on an all-wheel-drive dyno at automotive engineering specialist AVL in Italy for a second time and has also been to the Sauber wind tunnel in Switzerland for aerodynamic testing. Isotta motorsport boss Claudio Berro told Autosport that the car should be ready to start track testing in conjunction with the British Vector Sport team in “one or two weeks”. “We need the functionality to be perfect before we run the car for the first time, whether that’s on a proper race track or in straightline testing,” said Berro. “We are planning an extensive test programme, and after that we will begin the homologation process with the FIA. “The target is still to be … [Read more...] about Isotta Fraschini Hypercar test plan outlined ahead of Monza WEC debut
Carlos Sainz concerned cars becoming harder to follow again with 2023 challengers
Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz believes the 2023 cars are beginning to feel like their predecessors in that following other drivers is becoming a “limitation” on performance. Sainz was overtaken on the first lap after a brave move from Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll saw him launch a pass around the outside of the banked Turn 13 in Jeddah, and the Spaniard faced a tough task to find his way back past again in the race. He was unable to do so, with Stroll able to keep Sainz at bay – and the Ferrari driver explained that he took too much life out of his tyres in his first stint as he searched for a way by the Canadian prior to his retirement, though he feels the 2023 cars are now harder to follow behind again. The 2022 regulation reset was done with a significant focus on improving cars’ following capabilities, with the switch to ground effect aerodynamics brought in to aid drivers while following each other and not losing as much downforce in the process in turbulent air – with pre-2021 … [Read more...] about Carlos Sainz concerned cars becoming harder to follow again with 2023 challengers
States cranking out even more tax cuts amid cash surpluses
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Just six months after passing what was billed as the largest tax cut in Missouri history, the Republican-led state House voted Tuesday for an even bigger income tax cut that could return over $1 billion annually to individuals, corporations and retirees. The Missouri legislation is the latest in a series of aggressive tax reductions that swept across U.S. states last year and have continued into 2023 — even as some warn that it might be wise for states to hold on to record large surpluses amid economic uncertainty. “Wouldn’t it be a good idea for us to all just pause for a year?” Democratic state Rep. Deb Lavender asked rhetorically before her Republican colleagues endorsed the tax cut on a 109-45 party-line vote. The Missouri legislation still has a ways to go — it needs a second House approval before it can move to the Senate and then to the governor. But legislatures and governors in several states already have given final approval to tax cuts and … [Read more...] about States cranking out even more tax cuts amid cash surpluses
