This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 6 On a rural two-lane road 24 miles southwest of Austin, there's a blue and white pickup truck parked in front of a large silo that sits outside a 9,000-square-foot industrial building with brown metal siding and brick flourishes. This unassuming building is the home of Desert Door Distillery .

The Houston Rockets ' hopes of making a leap toward playoff contention look slimmer by the week as we roll through the 2022-23 season. Head coach Stephen Silas' squad dropped their 16th game of the season on Wednesday, a listless 120-100 affair in which Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokić nearly put up a triple-double in 28 minutes. The Rockets were among the NBA's best teams less than a half decade ago. Reaching those heights again now feels like a distant fantasy. So, what are the biggest problems facing the Rockets—and what hope can we have for the franchise's future? Let's address the situation in our latest mailbag. When will we no longer be the worst team in the NBA? – Phillip Mueller The 2022-23 Rockets aren’t presently the single worst team in the NBA, with that honor going to Eastern Conference also-rans in Detroit and Orlando.

Early into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II , the latest entry in the long-running first-person-shooter video game franchise, the player is whisked away from the character whose perspective they've occupied, a British operative working undercover in Amsterdam. Suddenly, you're playing instead as Rodolfo "Rudy" Parra, a member of the Mexican Special Forces. Parra, along with sandpaper-throated superior Alejandro Vargas, is working with the CIA to stop the smuggling of an Iranian terrorist over the U.S./Mexico border and into a fictional Texas town. Before long, Parra and Vargas have killed a dozen people, terrorized roughly the same number of civilians, and lost track of their target amid the roaring flames of a cartel safehouse set afire. This scene, set within a level called "Borderline," is a loaded one. As described in an article by Steven Santana , its imagery strikes horrific real-world parallels with the brutal treatment of Latin American migrants, playing into rhetoric that … [Read more...] about Does ‘Call of Duty’ have anything to say with its controversial Texas level?
Listen to this article You might recall Travis Pastrana's Family Huckster Subaru GL wagon from being one of the quickest cars at the 2022 Goodwood Hillclimb and jumping over a bridge in Florida. Now, it's in the Hoonigan studio for a deep dive into what makes this wild machine so special. And, there's a lot to learn. The basic inspiration for this vehicle is the Subaru GL wagons serving the United States Ski Team in the 1980s. However, one of the original cars could never take the abuse that Pastrana puts on the Family Huckster. The chassis now consists of a 3d-modeled tube frame and a carbon-fiber tub. The wheelbase is almost identical, but the vehicle is about 12 inches (30.48 centimeters) wider than an authentic example.
