    Aston Martin confirms Lagonda revival with first official image

    When the William Towns-designed futuristic original Lagonda was revealed in 1976 it was one of the most technically complex, striking and expensive cars in the world. In fact it was so complex to build that Aston Martin struggled to keep up with customer demand (which came primarily from the Middle East). Nearly 40 years on Aston Martin is a completely different company in terms of the technology and investment at its disposal and while it is still dedicated to the finest craftsmanship and personalization, it can now offer those services within a state of the art production facility, rather than a couple of draughty factory units. Specific details about what prospective owners can expect from the new car remain a secret, and according to the company, as each model will be tailored exactly to an individual client's demands unless an owner chooses to reveal particulars about his or her Lagonda, that's the way that things are going to remain -- confidential.

    Thousands ignore ban in Paris to protest Israeli offensive in Gaza

    By Michel Rose PARIS (Reuters) - Pro-Palestinian protesters clashed with police in central Paris on Saturday when thousands of marchers defied a ban by French authorities to rally against Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip. French interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve warned organizers in a television address that they would be held responsible for any clashes and could be prosecuted for ignoring a ban that was confirmed by the country's top administrative court. TV footage showed a minority of demonstrators wearing balaclavas and traditional Arab keffiyeh headdresses throwing projectiles at riot officers after two hours of peaceful protest.

    Texas Dad's Invention That Fills 100 Water Balloons in a Minute Inspires Robust Kickstarter Campaign

    Summer after summer of filling and knotting water balloons was taking the fun out of water balloon fights. So one Texas family took matters into their own hands and came up with a way to save time. After some experimentation, engineer Josh Malone and his kids came up with a prototype of a prepackaged balloon set, which attaches to a hose. After a group of balloons are filled with water simultaneously, they tie themselves before falling off — in one minute. "We knew there had to be a better way," Malone tells Yahoo News.
