Taylor put the No. 10 machine into the lead for good on Lap 33 of 61, one lap before he pitted and gave way to Angelelli.It was the second consecutive Detroit victory for the Corvette DP and for Taylor, who earned a GT-class victory last year in a Camaro. It was Taylor’s fourth career Rolex Series class win and was the 23rd Rolex Series win for Angelelli.”It was mandatory [to win for Chevrolet in Detroit]. It was huge pressure for both of us. Starting from the pole, great deal, and we won the race. I’m happy to say we delivered and we executed perfectly. The guys during the pit stop did an amazing job from P1 and it’s thanks to them.”Barbosa and co-driver Christian Fittipaldi took second in the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP. Third went to No. 2 Starworks Motorsport Ford/Riley teammates Ryan Dalziel and Alex Popow, who led 16 laps.The championship picture changed dramatically on the opening lap when Memo Rojas crashed the No. 01 Cessna-TELMEX BMW/Riley after contact from Gustavo Yacaman in the No. 6 Tuvacol Ford/Riley forced him to spin into the path of John Pew’s No. 60 Michael Shank Racing Ford/Riley.

Edwards and Liddell were buoyed by quick pit work to take the lead after starting fifth in class on the 2.36-mile street circuit.”Hats off to the Stevenson guys,” Edwards said. “They really got us in the lead and I think you could see by the pressure I was getting at the end that if I had gone out in second place we probably wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you as winners. Those guys have done a fantastic job to give us three in a row.”Jeff Westphal and Alessandro Balzan took second in GT in the No. 63 Motorola Mobility Ferrari 458 Italia, enabling Balzan to retain the lead in the class point standings. Third in class went to polesitter Max Papis and co-driver Jeff Segal in the No. 61 Ferrari of Ontario Ferrari 458.Joel Miller and the No. 00 Visit Florida Racing Mazda 6 earned a second consecutive GX-class victory for the diesel-powered machine. It was the first career Rolex Series win for 17-year-old rising star Tristan Nunez, who co-drove to the win alongside Miller.”Unfortunately, I missed out for the first Mazda win at Atlanta, but I was in [the American Le Mans Series race] in Long Beach getting my first street course experience,” Nunez said. “I think that helped in favor in this race. It’s so great for my first pro win to be alongside Joel Miller.”READ MORE: READ: Harvick’s late charge leads to 600 winlast_img read more

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Sets Theater & Creative Team

first_img View Comments Could it be magic? We now have a theater and confirmed creative team for the previously reported Harry Potter play. The production will be based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Penned by Thorne, the play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End in summer 2016 at the Palace Theatre.Helmed by the now confirmed Tony winner Tiffany (Once), the production will feature movement by Steven Hoggett, set design by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, lighting by Neil Austin, music by Grammy nominee Imogen Heap, sound by Gareth Fry and special effects by Jeremy Chernick. Casting will be announced later.The Harry Potter play will look into the story of the wizard’s parents, James and Lily Evans Potter, before they were murdered by Lord Voldemort, and Harry Potter’s early years as an orphan and outcast.The seven-volume Harry Potter series has sold more than 450 million copies and been translated into 77 languages. The books were adapted into eight movies starring Audience Choice Award winners Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley, along with Emma Watson as Hermione Granger.Currently home to The Commitments, which will close on November 1, the Palace Theatre usually plays host to musicals, but we somehow have a feeling that they’ll have no problem selling tickets.We also sense that this has “Broadway transfer” written all over it.last_img read more

Principles over rules

first_imgWe’re taught early in our lives to follow the rules. Rules are put in place to tell us how we should behave and what expectations to have in certain situations. They put us in a mindset of right and wrong.Each organization likely has an employee handbook that outlines office rules. These are helpful in ensuring employees understand the way the company works, but they can also be inflexible and stifle employees’ autonomy.This is where the adage “rules are meant to be broken” has some truth. Along this line, leadership expert Rajshree Agarwal suggests that leaders should stress principles for office culture rather than rules: “Rules coerce behavior. Principles inspire behavior,” she writes. Here are three ways principles can drive positive results in your organization:Stay optimistic: Rules are often phrased in pessimistic ways that make it seem like employees don’t know how to behave professionally or as adults. Promoting principles in your office will motivate your team to work at their highest ability because they feel like you trust them and they have space to grow and learn. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Artem Chigvintsev’s Dating History

first_imgQuite the journey. Artem Chigvintsev is now in a happy relationship with Nikki Bella — the engaged couple welcomed their first child together, a son, in July 2020. However, the professional dancer dated others in the spotlight before settling down.The Russia native, who was part of Burn the Floor and Strictly Come Dancing before joining Dancing With the Stars, has been romantically linked to many dancers over the years. While not all his exes are still part of his life, one has a big impact on his weekly schedule.- Advertisement – Carrie Ann Inaba, who is currently a judge on the ABC competition series, was in a relationship with Chigvintsev for two and a half years between 2006 and 2009. She hasn’t given him any special treatment over the years though. In fact, during season 29 of the show, fans on social media speculated that she was being tough on him and partner Kaitlyn Bristowe because of their past.Bella also joked about the Hawaii native’s history with her now-fiancé in 2019, noting that if the judge’s save was part of the season they competed on together, maybe they would have “lasted longer” than they did.- Advertisement – “I think Carrie Ann totally would have saved us. And not because you guys dated … but she really liked my technique,” the Total Bellas star said during Entertainment Tonight at the time. During the live show, the dancer immediately began blushing and covered his face.Despite their past relationships, Bella and Chigvintsev are in a great place.“Artem treats Nikki like a queen. He’s such a great guy and madly in love with her,” an insider told Us Weekly exclusively in June 2020. “She’s his dream girl, and she is super sweet to him. Their friends love them as a couple.”- Advertisement – Scroll through the gallery below to see who else Chigvintsev has dated — and who he married — through the years. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Terry Ryder thinks Redbank Plains is a good place to invest in property.2.
