Top Gear in crisis? Filming held up because Chris Evans 'CAN'T drive and talk into the camera at the same time'

Chris Evans has hit a major road block in his new role hosting Top Gear after realising he finds it nearly impossible to speak while he is driving.

The motormouth presenter can hardly breathe for chatting on his Radio 2 breakfast show.

But when it comes to talking from behind the wheel, he is said to freeze like a cat caught in the headlights and struggles to blurt out any of his lines.

Webmaster addition: I can talk and drive at the same time! :)

North Dakota Grain Terminal Goes GMO-Free To Meet Consumer Demand

By Amanda Froelich

In North Dakota, agriculture is the state’s leading source of revenue. In fact, almost 90% of the state is occupied by farms and ranches, and the chief agricultural commodity is wheat.

You can be certain, then, that when a company in the northern state invests in a GMO-free grain plant, the food market is taking on a new trend...

ISPs: should pay full costs of Snooper's Charter hardware

The Home Secretary's £257m estimate for the costs of implementing the bill's provisions was somewhat short of the potential £2bn cost – which the government has resolutely buried its head in the sand over.

The ISPA complained that the subset of providers consulted about the impact of the bill was too small, adding "it is not clear whether the indirect effects have been considered by the Impact Assessment."

Additional IPSA complaints related to "the need to procure new hardware to meet new obligations and the high costs of storing large volumes [of] data that would follow."

Bill Binney: New UK spying law is going to kill people, ex-NSA technical director and whistleblower warns

Britain’s new spying laws could kill people, the ex-technical director of the NSA has warned.

Pursuing a strategy of allowing spies to look in on everything that everyone says “costs lives, and has cost lives in Britain because it inundates analysts with too much data”, Bill Binney has warned UK MPs who are scrutinising the Investigatory Powers Bill.

The bill, also known as the Snoopers' Charter, is set to be passed by parliament early this year and will bring with it huge and unprecedented spying powers for UK intelligence agencies and the government. But it has been criticised by privacy campaigners and technology companies who argue that it will put lives in danger.

“It is 99 per cent useless,” Mr Binney said in a letter sent to MPs. “Who wants to know everyone who has ever looked at Google or the BBC? We have known for decades that that swamps analysts.”

Why isn’t the U.S. counting meat producers’ climate emissions? "In its latest appropriations bill passed Friday, Congress renewed a provision that prevents the EPA from requiring emission reports from livestock producers."

If the Paris climate pact is going to succeed at staving off climate change disaster, the 195 participating countries will need to achieve a difficult feat — trust.

Yet the U.S. government already is failing to implement its own rules on tracking emissions. It is not collecting emission reports from one of the country’s largest sources of greenhouse gases: meat production.
