  • U.S. working to keep up with surging weapons demand: Pentagon

    By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government is working hard to ensure quicker processing of U.S. foreign arms sales, which surged 36 percent to $46.6 billion in fiscal 2015 and look set to remain strong in coming years, a top Pentagon official said. "Projections are still strong," Vice Admiral Joe Rixey, who heads the Pentagon's Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), told Reuters in an interview late on Monday. The fight against Islamic State militants and other armed conflicts around the globe were fueling demand for U.S. missile defense equipment, helicopters and munitions, Rixey said, a shift from 10 years ago when the focus was on fighter jets.

  • ‘Piecaken’ Is the Official Dessert of Thanksgiving (13 photos)

    This year, you can have your cake — and your pie — and eat it too. That is, if a “piecaken” graces your Thanksgiving dessert spread. So what is a piecaken? Simply put, it’s a pie stuffed within a cake, the latest mashup in a long line of frankenfoods out there that, for the holidays at least, seem to trace their origins back to the notorious “turducken” (which, in case you’ve forgotten, is a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey). Piecaken variations are endless . Think cheesecake + pumpkin pie, raspberry pie + dark-chocolate cake, or even a savory version, like chicken pot pie + cornbread “cake.” We’ve rounded up a few that are perfect for Thanksgiving, including a piecaken recipe from NYC’s fabrick  that went  viral  after  a segment on Live With Kelly and Michael earlier this week.  Related on Yahoo Makers:   Thanksgiving 2015′s Hottest Trends: Turkey Recipes, Tabletops, and Treats Long-time foodies will recall that early versions of piecakens have been around since 2007 , but this is the year that they’ve really taken off. So take your pick of our favorites, or DIY up your own combo!  Keep in mind that these impressive creations aren’t necessarily quickies — the aforementioned fabrick piecaken will keep you in the kitchen for 5+ hours — but for the oohs and ahhs of your guests, a piecaken just might be worth it.

  • Hyundai's Genesis brand will challenge German's elite with a BMW 3 Series rival

    Hyundai’s newly announced Genesis luxury brand (not to be confused with the Genesis coupe and sedan) has some grand plans, according to the Korean automaker’s U.S. chief. Hyundai Motor America CEO Dave Zuchowski has confirmed its Genesis sub-brand is working on a compact sport sedan to wage battle against German’s core luxury players: Audi’s A4, BMW’s 3 Series, and Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class. This news helps clarify Hyundai’s vision for its Genesis brand: to elevate the manufacturer to the realm that just decades ago Japanese automakers like Lexus struggled to infiltrate. In addition to the 3 Series sedan rival, Zuchowski suggested that a crossover is on the way. This isn’t much of a surprise since its slated rivals are throwing themselves full-force into all manor of crossover designs. For Genesis to effectively compete, it will need at least a pair of crossover body styles to lure shoppers. Related: Hyundai Spins Off Its Genesis Nameplate Into A Sub-Brand For an indication of the design direction Genesis plans to take, Hyundai revealed the Vision G Coupe Concept ahead of this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Its striking design, inside and out earned praise and we’ll likely see several styling cues make their way into Genesis’s first planned model: the G90 sedan. Set to replace the Hyundai Equus, the G90 will be a full-size luxury model serving as the brand’s flagship. Six models are presently in the works, including a replacement for the Genesis sedan (at least in part because its name is a bit confusing) and its coupe derivative. Add the smaller sedan and its crossover counterpart to the mix and there’s only one other spot on the roster to be filled. Unlike Nissan/Infiniti and Toyota/Lexus, Hyundai doesn’t have immediate plans to add Genesis-specific showrooms or even force Hyundai dealers to sell Genesis models. Zuchowski stated that he believes dealerships will naturally want to sell Genesis models as more are offered and consumer demand grows.
