Martin, Martin Luther King Jr., and Memes: Martin Luther King Jr. Statue Will Join Confederate Statues At Georgia's State Capital @balleralert Martin Luther King Jr. Statue Will Join Confederate Statues At Georgia's State Capital- blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Georgia's Capitol have a plethora of its confederate soldier statues across its grounds. Confederate general and Ku Klux Klan leader John Brown Gordon and U.S. Sen. Richard Russell, an opponent to the civil rights legislation King wanted, sit as reminders to Georgia's oppressive and racist past (and possible present). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ MartinLutherKingJr. will have a statue in his honor that will sit alongside the very regime he advocated against. Member of Georgia Legislative Black Caucus Representative Calvin Myre stated, "The King statue will inspire and give hope to generations to come." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The unveiling was set before the Charlottesville terrorism, but had since been rescheduled due to the recent moves across states to take down confederate statues. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) feels "this will be a symbol that the state of Georgia is in the business of erecting monuments to deserving individuals rather than focusing its attention on taking down monuments of the past."

Facebook, Life, and Love: By Mike Imlay Video By Carr Winn & Clint Simone Every SEMA Show vehicle has a story, but few intertwine the themes of mentorship, industry know-how, teamwork and inspiration as compellingly as Project Underdog, a student-customized 1972 Ford Maverick built under the tutelage of actor Sung Kang. Sponsored by Shell and featuring Pennzoil, and supported by Ford Motor Company, Samsung, NITTO, GReddy, Rocket Bunny and Facebook, the unique vehicle venture was completed at the SEMA Garage in Diamond Bar. California, just days before its official unveiling at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas and I've had over 30 years at the SEMA II 0:07 2:08 Kang created Project Underdog as an exercise in youth engagement, putting together a unique team consisting of three aspiring California car enthusiasts from Alhambra High School, award-winning vehicle builder Steve Strope, members of the SEMA Garage and other industry professionals to successfully transform the unassuming "underdog" Maverick into a showcase performer and winner of a Ford Corporate Design Award for its significant contribution to vehicle design. Along the way, student builders Tony Chen, Alexis Hernandez and Christian Quiroz acquired valuable technical and life skills from Kang and his company of adult mentors The actor first drove the Maverick while shooting a Fast & Furious movie on location in Brazil and immediately fell in love with the vehicle. The Maverick has always been under-appreciated, overlooked and undervalued, but those who love her are loyal forever he explained. "This and the chance to make a difference for these students is something l can stand behind. The Maverick is now on tour, benefit other aspiring industry students via an extensive media campaign ending in an October 2017 Barrett Jackson auction in Las Vegas where its sale will benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship A little update on the Project Underdog. https:-youtu.be-ftIxcktvkns link on bio

Memes, Sensational, and On the Road: NEWS Pagani Has Unveiled The Staggeringly Beautiful And Sensationally Fast Huayra Roadster Via @carthrottlenews - Excuse us if we’re feeling a bit faint. Pagani has taken the wraps off the Huayra Roadster and its epic 760bhp V12. - As with the hard-top, the Huayra sits on a monocoque made of the coolest-sounding material in the world, carbotanium, but it skims knowledge gained from the ballistic Huayra BC project to improve outright performance. - Check out these numbers. It’s actually 80kg lighter than the coupe, it’s going to be 3.0 seconds or so to the 62mph benchmark, not much more to hit 100mph and a top speed somewhere in the region of LOTS. The 380mm brakes are as big as some superminis’ wheels and the staggeringly gorgeous forged aluminium wheels measure 20 inches at the front and 21 at the back. - New suspension components are mostly responsible for the weight saving. They are made out of a Pagani-developed lightweight aluminium alloy it calls HiForg, which cuts 25 per cent out of each piece’s weight. - The engine is a bespoke V12 built by Mercedes-AMG, with two turbos pushing torque all the way up to 737lb ft. - More numbers. The Huayra Roadster only weighs about as much as an Audi TT, at 1280kg, and with the benefit of new aero flaps at both ends, which optimise downforce both on the road and the track, it can achieve lateral G-force measuring 1.8G. Yes, really. - To reach 1G lateral acceleration on the road you need a great car, ultimate confidence in the surface and a bucket of bravery pills, so 1.8G is likely to apply to the track, where it’s well beyond the understanding of mere mortals. And, for that matter, all the sickeningly rich people who’ve bought one of the 100 that will be built. - Obviously they’ve all already sold at the asking price of about £1.93 million. Did we also mention that it’s incredibly, breath-stealingly stunning? If you ever see one on the road it might just be the greatest moment of your life.
