Defending three-time champion Hamilton, who is just one point behind Rosberg after 10 of this year’s 21 races, was 0.143 seconds behind his rival as the pair secured their team’s sixth front-row lockout of the season.“It was a really challenging qualifying with the changing conditions all the time,” said Rosberg, 31.“I’ve been feeling really good out there the whole weekend in all conditions. I’m looking forward to the race and the great opportunity tomorrow.”Hamilton looked to be on course to take pole when on an improved best lap he came across Spaniard Fernando Alonso’s McLaren spinning off the track dangerously in front of him.The Briton had to take evasive action, which cost him time, before Rosberg came round and was able to continue without easing off.“It was unfortunate with Fernando, but these things happen,” said a stony-faced Hamilton, who has been gnawing away at Rosberg’s lead in the standings and is chasing a third win in succession.“I did the best I could do and it’s a long race tomorrow so I’ll give it everything I’ve got.”The two Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo, who was also affected by Alonso’s spin, and Dutch teenager Max Verstappen were third and fourth ahead of four-time champion Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari.Vettel’s team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was unable to progress from Q2 in the treacherous conditions.There was a whiff of controversy, with Red Bull team chief Christian Horner suggesting that the race stewards should investigate to see if Rosberg had lifted off sufficiently in response to double-waved yellow warning flags after the Alonso incident.But Mercedes team chief Toto Wolff moved swiftly to defend Rosberg, who signed a new two-year contract with the team on Friday.– Red flags abound –Spaniards Carlos Sainz of Toro Rosso and Alonso were sixth and seventh ahead of Briton Jenson Button in the second McLaren, Nico Hulkenberg of Force India and Valtteri Bottas of Williams, who was 10th fastest.Rosberg’s success brought him his 26th career pole position and his 50th front-row start for a race he has never won.Heavy rain delayed the start of Q1 by 20 minutes, flooding many parts of the paddock, including television commentary booths.“It’s pretty hairy out there, there’s a lot of spray and standing water,” said Williams deputy team chief Claire Williams.“The most important thing is the safety of our drivers.”When it did finally get going, there were four red flags in Q1 alone, as the drivers struggled badly.One of the victims was Swede Marcus Ericsson in his Sauber, slamming into advertising boards in front of a tyre barrier at Turn Ten, and bring another red flag with nine minutes remaining.Then his team-mate Felipe Nasr crashed. He was unhurt, but like Ericsson, his day was over.Another red flag, the fourth, with five minutes to go ensured a thrilling finale to Q1.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton in action during the third practice session for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on July 9, 2016/PHOTO/AFPBUDAPEST, Hungary, July 23- Nico Rosberg rode his luck to grab pole position for Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix ahead of Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in a prolonged qualifying session punctuated by rainstorms and red flags.The championship-leading German produced a fastest lap of one minute and 19.965 seconds at the end of a session stretched to nearly two hours by heavy rain and crashes in the hazardous conditions on the twisting Hungaroring circuit on Saturday.

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… dan frommer What’s the takeaway from Yahoo’s recent CEO fiasco? Don’t lie on your corporate bio, for one, and make sure no one else has lied on your behalf. But the real lesson has nothing to do with falsified credentials.Sure, the world will remember Scott Thompson as the Yahoo CEO who got fired over a fake computer science degree, but the context is crucial: A battle with Yahoo shareholder Dan Loeb for control of the company. If not for Loeb, we may never have found out about Thompson’s juiced resume, and he might still be CEO. The real lesson is: Beware the activist investor.Four months had passed since Thompson’s appointment as Yahoo CEO, and no one had questioned his education. His relevant experience at PayPal? Sure, at first. But not his computer science degree. In fact, many of us actually thought that especially qualified him for the Yahoo job.In hindsight, Yahoo obviously should have investigated Thompson’s background more thoroughly. (And shame on us in the press for missing this one!) But even if Yahoo had found the discrepancy after Thompson was named CEO, it might have quietly corrected the mistake and hoped no one noticed.It is possible to survive a scandal over a college degree you wish you’d earned but didn’t. When RadioShack CEO David Edmondson resigned in 2006 after a newspaper reported that his two supposed degrees were invented and that he was facing a trial for DUI charges, the company said its board had known about “some, but definitely not all” of the issues. (I suppose it makes a difference which ones.) But former Bausch & Lomb CEO Ronald Zarrella stayed around for years after he was busted for falsely claiming an MBA from New York University.In this case, there was no pushing anything under the rug. it was Loeb himself who outed Thompson, in a letter to Yahoo’s board that he made public in a press release.“According to the Yahoo! Form 10-K/A, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 27, 2012, newly-hired Chief Executive Officer, Scott Thompson, ‘holds a Bachelor’s degree in accounting and computer science’ from Stonehill College,” it read. “A rudimentary Google search reveals a Stonehill College alumni announcement stating that Mr. Thompson’s degree is in accounting only.” Whoops.Did Loeb actually care about Thompson’s level of educational attainment? Probably not. This was a power play, pure and simple. And it worked. (Note that Loeb’s activist website, ValueYahoo, is already taken down.) If Loeb hadn’t hit the jackpot with the degree accusation – or if Thompson and Yahoo successfully brushed it off – he would have come back, again and again, until either he or his adversary crumbled.But with the mess Yahoo is in – even after Thompson’s four months on the job – Loeb finally had the mob on his side. And now he’s on top. Tags:#web#Yahoo 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts
J’adore La Mode(D. McDowell for Visit Philadelphia/Philly 360°) Dorranace Hamilton Hall on the University of the Arts’ campus was all abuzz this past Friday, December 13 for The Evoluer House’s annual fashion event. Celebrity stylist Kithe Brewster put on a brilliant fashion show as he previewed his spring 2014 collection. The theme for the night was J’adore la Mode, which translates to I love fashion, and that was clear in the passion that went into the night. And, Brewster and The Evoluer House made sure to bring the glitz and glam. Guest models Sessilee Lopez, who was presented the Trailblazer Award, Sheldon Verneil and Anna Rezan-Kritselis set fire to the runway. And Philadelphia-based celebrity dancer/choreographer Anthony Burrell also put his touch into the show. The who’s who of Philly fashion was in the building. Hey, Dom Streater aka Philly’s own Project Runway winner! The Ciroc was flowing and everyone wore their Sunday’s best for J’adore La Mode. The stage was set for the fashion party of the year but amongst the party was a purpose. The gala was an event to benefit The Evoluer House, a foundation that helps at-risk girls of color seek a better quality of life. The house’s architect Cheryl Wadlington lit up the hall with her elegance. As she delivered her thank you speech to the crowd, you could not only hear the excitement but also sense the urgency and importance for what giving means this worthy cause. A highlight of the evening was a speech delivered by a graduate of the Evoluer House. The young lady spoke about the great impact Evoluer has on young women and how it boosted her confidence. Watching her speak, the crowd saw firsthand that her words were not just hype. As she spoke about how Evoluer changed her life and her aspirations of greatness, she owned the stage. Two statistics from speakers of the evening stuck with me. It costs $50,000 to put a juvenile girl through the criminal circuit but only $1,000 to put her through The Evoluer House. The second statistic was that 100% of all Evoluer girls graduate from high school and 70% go on to secondary education. So you can do the math and understand why donating to this program not only makes sense but is absolutely necessary. This night of fashion and glam got our fashion appetite fiending for more. Dear The Evoluer House and Kithe: We’re ready for the next one.
