New Land Rover Defender

Land Rover Release Exclusive Behind the Scenes Look at New James Bond Film – No Time To Die

The automaker’s new Defender faces its toughest test in the latest Bond movie, which releases in April 2020

Land Rover has put fans inside the New Defender on the set of No Time To Die, the 25th official James Bond film, in a teaser video released to announce its continued partnership with EON Productions.

Footage captured during filming of the upcoming movie gives a unique, behind-the-scenes view of stunt co-ordinator Lee Morrison and stunt driver Jess Hawkins at work.

No Time To Die is the first movie to feature the New Defender, the latest legendary vehicle to star in a James Bond car chase sequence. The New Defender has been tested by the 007 expert stunt team in the most extreme off-road conditions, demonstrating its unstoppable nature.

Lee Morrison, James Bond Stunt Co-ordinator, said:

“Designing and co-ordinating the action sequences for the Bond franchise requires a non-compromising mindset. We needed an unstoppable vehicle to help us battle against the elements, steep descents and river crossings so we chose the new Defender. I’m beyond impressed that the Defender is not only back but much, much better!”

The New Defender provides ground clearance of 291mm and world-class off-road geometry, giving the Defender 110 approach, breakover and departure angles of 38, 28 and 40 degrees (Off Road height) respectively. Its maximum wading depth of 900mm is supported by a new Wade programme in the Terrain Response 2 system, so drivers can ford deep water with complete confidence.

Britain’s biggest vehicle manufacturer has a long-standing partnership with EON Productions on the Bond films, which began in 1983 when a Range Rover Convertible appeared in Octopussy.

Alongside the Defenders, No Time To Die also features the Range Rover Sport SVR, Series III Land Rover and Range Rover Classic.

No Time To Die, is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga and stars Daniel Craig, who returns for his fifth film as Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007. The film will be released globally in cinemas from April 2 2020 in the U.K. through Universal Pictures International and in the U.S on April 10, from Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios via their United Artists Releasing banner.

Ant-Man

Announced at MCM Comic Con London, Ant-Man is set to make a major comeback this February with a new series that will have the entire Marvel Universe buzzing! Zeb Wells and Dylan Burnett join forces to tell a tale that will take Ant-Man from the anthill to the world stage.

Known for his lively humor and slick dialogue on books like NOVA and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Zeb Wells is the perfect fit for the wisecracking former thief and is ready to infuse Ant-Man with his trademark wit. “Dylan Burnett, Mike Spicer and I are out to put the ant in Ant-Man, turn over some rocks and craft a bug-forward tale that starts small and spins into a world-spanning adventure,” said Wells. “And you know Stinger (Cassie Lang) is coming along for the ride.”

The series will open with Scott Lang down on his luck and desperate for adventure until he’s looped in for a job only he can accomplish. What begins as a seemingly unheroic task for local beekeepers rapidly escalates into a conspiracy that could threaten the Earth! Throughout this journey, Ant-Man will not only have to prove himself as a hero, but as a parent to his daughter Cassie Lang as well. A Super Hero herself, Cassie will be joining her dad as Stinger as the father/daughter duo embark on this bug-filled quest together, along with many of your other favorite Marvel Super Heroes!

With books like X-FORCE and COSMIC GHOST RIDER under his belt, Dylan Burnett will easily match Wells’ energy, and his kinetic art style will make sure this fast-paced, globetrotting romp is one readers will never forget.

Keeping A Dog In The Inner City: A Guide

Many people who live in the midst of a city crave the company of a dog. Living in built-up urban areas can sometimes be a lonely existence, and sometimes a dog is a soothing and comforting housemate that will keep you sane during rough times. However, when you live in such a busy area, it is important to do this responsibly. You want to make sure your pet is happy and contented in their surroundings before you shell out on such a big responsibility.

Check with your landlord
Before you head down to the pet store, double-check that your landlord actually allows pets in your property. You could cause real problems for your lease if you suddenly show up with an unexpected animal. If your landlord is reluctant, then have a clear and open chat about what type of dog you will be keeping and how you will look after it. If the landlord explicitly states that an animal is a no-go, then you may have to move.

Choose a breed that’s right for the area
Want to own a racing hound when you live on the 16th floor of an apartment block? That might be a bad idea. However, if you’re lucky enough to live in a house with a garden, and live near plenty of parks, you should be fine for more energetic breeds, such as labradors. Visiting a dog expert like Snowy Pines White Labradors will help you know if a lab is right for your family. If you decide a labrador is right for your family, then make sure you have plenty of room, and wide open spaces nearby to take them for runs. You need to give your dog what it needs and in this case, it is bigger space.

Be aware of the summer months
The warmer months can be incredibly tough on dogs. The sun not only makes it uncomfortable for them to exercise and move around, but it also dehydrates them. One extra consideration to make is how hot the pavement will get in direct heat. This could really hurt your dog’s paws, and so you may need to consider getting little covers for your dog’s feet. If in doubt, stick to shaded areas, and always bring water with you to keep your pet hydrated while the weather is intense.

Research daycare
Unless you happen to have inherited tonnes of wealth, your reasons for living in the city are likely to be a regular job. This means you will be away from your apartment and indeed your dog. If your employer doesn’t let you bring your dog to work, then you will need to research some daycare options. It’s not fair on your dog to leave them in a confined apartment or house while you go to work, especially in smaller city abodes.

There is an extra level of responsibility to consider when adopting a pet in the city. You have to be mindful of how you will exercise it and whether it will be truly happy in your living conditions. However, if you have the means to take it on regular walks, provide daycare and treat it with undying love, then you might just be ready for the adoption forms.

GR Gallery, Apnea, Johan Van Mullem, art, fine art, design, 360 MAGAZINE

Johan Van Mullem

GR Gallery is pleased to announce “Apnea,” the first solo exhibition of Johan Van Mullem with the gallery. The show, organized by Russ Basin, explores the artist unique creative practice and inspirational process of estrange himself. Apnea  will reveal the latest series of artworks conceived by the artist appositely for this occasion, together with some older iconic models. It will put together 25 original pieces, always executed with the artist’s signature gestural technique and striking early Rembrandt-like style. Together with different sizes of canvas works will be exhibited several preparatory drawings on paper. 
 
Opening reception: Friday November 22tnd, 6:00pm – 9:00pm (Exhibition Dates: November 22, 2019 – January 12, 2020). Members of the press can contact GR gallery in advance to schedule a private viewing and an interview with the artist. 
 
GR Gallery, 255 Bowery (between Houston & Stanton) New York, NY 10002 |  info@gr-gallery.com | tel: +1 212 273 2900
 

The title is inspired by one the artist’s most fierce passion that becomes the only way to take an appropriate break from the aberrations and disorders of the contemporary world, a sort of underwater meditation. The paradoxical notion that the self-awareness and social examination can be found strictly through the absence of these systems is explored through his relationship with the act of painting. A process that allows Johan to take the proper distance and become free to put himself, through his forceful gesture and unbiased inspirations, completely into the creative process. As he explains: “All my work is done as unconsciously as possible. I never program a work or attempt to elaborate on a sketch. I never try to impose my feelings or ideas on a work. I always work the same way, by trying to feel the medium, the music, the silence, or the size, whether it is sculpture, drawing, or painting. It is a question of energy and discovering the moment. One must always reflect upon what they discovered, until something new appears.” 

Apnea” aims to showcase the exclusive creative approach of Master artist Johan Van Mullem by unveiling a lavish selection of works that epitomize his carrier, marked by unique introspective psychological portraits slightly reminiscent of the Renaissance Flemish school. With the aid of vigorous brushstrokes, his powerful and dramatic aesthetic research is delivered by a strong color contrast that make the artworks uncommonly vibrant and luminescent capable to issue a vital and up to date energy.  

JOHAN VAN MULLEM was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1959 to Flemish parents, and spent much of his childhood following his diplomat father from country to country. He is a painter and sculptor known mainly for his powerful depiction of the human figure through luminous brushstrokes. He claims inspiration only from personal encounters with people on an everyday basis rather than aspiring to be like or to be inspired by any well-known artists, even though some merely aesthetic similarities with bacon, Goya and the Flemish school are perceptible. Van Mullem’s work can be found in public and private collections internationally, including collections in Brussels, London, New York, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Los Angeles and at the Musee d’Ixelles in Belgium.

Panasonic Jaguar Racing

Panasonic Jaguar Racing have today revealed their brand-new all electric racecar to challenge for season six of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. The British team’s official launch in front of VIPs, media, partners and fans was at Jaguar’s brand-new design studio in Gaydon, Warwickshire – the most advanced automotive design centre in the world.

The Jaguar I-TYPE 4, featuring an all new motor, gearbox, invertor, rear suspension and dampers has seen its overall weight reduced offering improved handling and performance. The lightest and most efficient powertrain the team has ever produced, the Jaguar I-TYPE 4 has a lower centre of gravity and will allow the team to push towards even more points, podiums and wins in season six.

The team have also announced the signing of new driver James Calado, who teams up with New Zealander Mitch Evans for season six of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

The 30-year-old, who started karting in 1999, has competed against some of the biggest names in motorsport including Formula E champion Jean-Eric Vergne and F1 driver Valtteri Bottas, during his career. He became the 2017 WEC GTE Pro champion and early this year took victory in the GTE Pro class at the Le Mans 24 hours.

Calado, who is based in Penarth, Wales, has a wealth of single-seater experience in GP3, GP2, British F3 and F1, scoring points, podiums and wins which he is keen to replicate in Formula E.

With the green lights of season six just over 50 days away, James Calado and Panasonic Jaguar Racing teammate, Mitch Evans, are focussed on preparing for the most competitive season of Formula E yet as they look to build on last season’s success.

ABOUT PANASONIC JAGUAR RACING

Jaguar returned to racing in October 2016, becoming the first premium manufacturer to join the all-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship street racing series. In 2019 the team won the Rome E-Prix – Jaguar’s first international motorsport victory since 1991.


Formula E is a real world test bed for Jaguar to fearless progress the future of electrification.


As an official manufacturer team in Formula E, Panasonic Jaguar Racing designs its own powertrain, which includes the motor, transmission, inverter and rear suspension. To control costs the carbon fibre chassis and battery are common components and the same for all twelve teams. This allows the focus to be on developing electric vehicle powertrains which are efficient and lightweight which will improve the performance and range of future Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles.
This is the second year teams will be racing with the futuristic Generation 2 racecars. Teams have two racecars, one per driver, which will be used for the full race distance.


Beyond its all-electric concept, Formula E is unique in the world of motorsport for its choice of venues. The championship takes place on temporary street circuits in the centre of the world’s major cities including Diriyah, Rome, Paris, New York and ending in a double-header race weekend in London.

Introducing G-STEEL

By Vaughn Lowery × Armon Hayes

As of late, we got to tally out the all new G-STEEL while having sips and getting our hair as well as our beards trimmed at Blind Barber in Manhattan’s Alphabet City. The new GSTB100G-2A models feature Bluetooth connectivity and can link up to the G-SHOCK app for accurate time and record keeping. This is one of the best models within their roster as this timepiece can easily travel from the office to the gym as well as the club. This stainless steel accessory possesses a double layer bezel and carbon fiber enclosures which make it sleek yet sporty. In addition to this unit being intuitive with various app settings, it’s water, shock resistant and solar powered. If you’re in the marketplace for a high quality product that’s durable yet upscale then this is the perfect arm candy. At $380 USD, our choice would be the navy with rose gold accents to add a dab of European style and magnificence.

About G-SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com.

Integrating Art & Technology as 2019 London Design Festival Showcases Innovative Design Power

Based on the mutual recognition of design philosophy and aesthetics, OPPO has teamed up with the acclaimed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, to present a large outdoor installation ‘Bamboo (竹) Ring: Weaving into Lightness’, which is installed in the John Madejski Garden at the V&A Museum for the duration of London Design Festival (14th – 22nd September). OPPO will be the only Asian technology brand to partner on a large outdoor installation at the V&A during London Design Festival 2019. 

Kengo Kuma said: 

“Working on this project with OPPO has been a very interesting experience. OPPO London Design Centre share a mutual interest and passion for the exploration of the integration of technology and natural materials. Using both bamboo and carbon fibre in the installation allows us to create an installation that fits into the landscape around it. OPPO likes to push the boundaries in innovative design to allow users to enjoy the beauty of technology, and this is how I create my work; the constant exploration of new materials, forms and environments. ‘Bamboo (竹) Ring: Weaving into Lightness’ is an adventurous exploration of this topic.” 

Jintong Zhu, Head of OPPO London Design Centre, added: 

“We are very excited about our co-creation with the incredible Kengo Kuma. For OPPO London Design Centre, one of the focuses is to explore the future of design and technology, and how we can create technology that adds value to our day to day life. We hope that this installation helps to capture people’s imagination and promote our enthusiasm for cutting-edge design to develop new technology.” 

Using pioneering technology and futuristic design, OPPO also introduces innovative creativity through an immersive experience called ‘Essence of Discovery’[1] that is located on Baker Street, London. The installation showcases the possibilities of achieving a more harmonious relationship between humans and technology, and explores the science of crafting products that blend beauty, intelligence and material tactility. Through the experimental design, OPPO London Design Centre will continue the exploration into new product areas, lifestyle trends and experiences, outside of their work with smartphones. 

Jintong Zhu said: 

“The installation, ‘Essence of Discovery’ is inspired by our research on the boundaries in product design and we hope that people enjoy interacting with our experience and take away a greater understanding of our design philosophy. As a new hub for OPPO in the field of design and art, the aim for OPPO London Design Centre is to explore the integration of technology and art through in-depth research on global aesthetics of design. We believe the London Design Festival is a perfect platform to introduce our design power to the world, and we will continue to provide cutting-edge information for OPPO design.” 

The ‘Essence of Discovery’ installation can be viewed at 35 Baker Street throughout London Design Festival, from 14th – 22nd September. 

‘Bamboo (竹) Ring: Weaving into Lightness’ is located at V&A in the John Madejski Garden and is open from 14th – 22nd September.
