  • North Korea's army chief of staff executed: report

    North Korea's army chief of staff has been executed, South Korean media reported Wednesday, in what would amount to the latest in a series of purges and executions of top officials by leader Kim Jong-Un. Ri Yong-Gil, Chief of the Korean People's Army (KPA) General Staff, was executed earlier this month for forming a political faction and corruption, Yonhap news agency said, citing a source familiar with North Korean affairs. The report came at a time of highly elevated tensions on the divided Korean peninsula following the North's recent nuclear test and long-range rocket launch.

  • Chevrolet's 1LE package is designed for Camaro owners with a need for speed

    Feeling the need for speed? Chevrolet has announced that the 2017 Camaro will gain an option package called 1LE. Offered on and off since 1988, 1LE is synonymous with a raft of handling-focused modifications designed to make Chevy’s pony car markedly faster around a track. The package is available on both V6- and V8-powered cars for the first time ever. Regardless of how many cylinders are in the engine bay, it brings a flat black hood that reduces glare, a sizable splitter up front, a three-piece spoiler out back, and Goodyear Eagle F1 tires wrapped around 20-inch alloy wheels. Both variants also receive a suede-upholstered steering wheel and a short-throw shifter. More important modifications are found by looking under the car. Notably, the V6-powered coupe gains suspension components borrowed from its V8-powered sibling, four-piston Brembo brake calipers, a mechanical limited-slip differential with a 3.27 ratio, and a dual exhaust system. Since 1LE-equipped cars are more likely to see track time, Chevy has added coolers for the engine, transmission, and differential oil as well as a Camaro SS-sourced fuel system that prevents fuel starvation during high-speed cornering. The Camaro SS builds on the V6 model with an adjustable suspension system named Magnetic Ride Control, six-piston brake calipers manufactured by Brembo, an electronic limited-slip differential, and Recaro bucket seats for the front passengers. General Motors’ Performance Data Recorder, which captures the driver’s perspective of the road ahead and a host of telemetry data, can be ordered at an extra cost. The 1LE package is exclusively available with a six-speed manual transmission, but it doesn’t include any major mechanical modifications. The Camaro features a 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 335 horsepower, and the Camaro SS boasts a 6.2-liter V8 with 455 ponies. Chevrolet isn’t planning on expanding 1LE availability to the four-cylinder-powered model anytime soon. Related: Callaway’s tuned Chevrolet Camaro SS gets over 600 supercharged ponies Enthusiasts who want to order a Chevrolet Camaro with the 1LE package will need to be patient because it’s not scheduled to go on sale until later this year. Pricing information hasn’t been announced yet.

  • Chinese woman dumps boyfriend after being put off by his family's Chinese New Year meal

    A 27-year-old woman from Shanghai, China, decided to dump her boyfriend after she went to his family home, and discovered that they weren't well-off enough. The unnamed woman took to her Weibo account to justify why she was leaving her boyfriend of one year. While the good-looking, hard-working guy had been treating her well, she felt he was just too poor for her. See also: Anxious singles are renting partners for Chinese New Year According to a string of Weibo posts she made, she claims to come from a well-off family in Shanghai, while her boyfriend's parents are farmers in a village in the Jiangxi province. Her parents had raised concerns initially that her boyfriend was not a good match for her, but she continued to date him. Image: Weibo However, the relationship came to an abrupt end when the wealth disparity between the woman and her boyfriend became all too clear during a visit to his hometown for Chinese New Year over the weekend. She said the dishes they served were "too humble" for her liking and caused her to take the first train out of Jiangxi to return home to Shanghai, reported People's Daily Online . "When I saw their food, I wanted to throw up. It was 100 times worse than what I had imagined. I can't accept it," the woman wrote. The woman's lengthy post on the KDS online forum caused quite a stir amongst Chinese netizens. Some said they could relate to her plight, but most were outraged by her audacity and lack of good manners. "Breaking up is not a problem, but you should still respect others, I feel like this woman looks down on farmers," one Weibo commenter said. Others called her out on being too proud and that she was suffering from "princess syndrome." In recent years, China's rising wealth gap has been a growing polarising issue, with people wondering if one can find love with someone of another social standing. In his sophomore novel China Rich Girlfriend , author Kevin Kwan (of Crazy Rich Asians fame) pointed out how far removed China's 'fu er dai' — second-generation rich kids — were from reality.

    A US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory committee just gave a critical recommendation for a version of Remicade, a drug used to treat autoimmune diseases like Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. The drug is called a “biosimilar,” which is like a generic version of a biologic medication, a medicine produced by living cells. The FDA can take the panel’s recommendation into consideration, but doesn’t necessarily rule the same way.
