Former Premier Steve Bracks' son Nick opens up his drunken car crash
'The stones play such an important role in our collective memory and this can be seen so clearly in the long tradition of family and group photos taken at the stones and on display in the Your Stonehenge exhibition.
Nick Bracks was 20 when he totalled his family's Saab at 5am on July 13, 2007 after a drinking binge lasting several days, events which partly caused his father Steve Bracks to resign as Victorian Premier.
What we already know about Radford's Lotus Type 62-2 road car The supercar will be powered by a supercharged 3.5-litre V6 engine currently used in the Lotus Exige and mp3 (mp3india.info) will mark the first Radford coachbuilt creation for more than half a century.
Its legendary red, white and gold colour scheme was applied after Colin Chapman signed a huge deal with Gold Leaf, and is most well-known on the Type 49B raced Graham Hill raced during the 1968 season. The colour scheme also featured on the famous Lotus 72 F1 car raced by Emerson Fittipaldi and Jochen Rindt in the 1970 season.
Bracks has released a book with mental health tips which include lessons he's learned in his journey from a binge-drinking young man to public speaker, called Move your Mind: How to Build a Healthy Mindset for Life.
Bracks, who went on to become a model and also a respected mental health advocate and speaker, confessed he was 'naive and stupid' and obsessed with drinking and his own popularity at that point in his life.
This model is also powered by USB (there's no power adapter), but you do have to connect it to your device with a standard 3.5mm aux-in cable (included). Don't expect huge volume (it is powered by USB after all), but it delivers better sound than you might think for the money.
The user will be able to see somewhat different images through the left and right eyes, albeit the object is the same, and this is because of the usage of two separate eyepieces and objectives for the purpos

'This enables us to evoke the spirit of an iconic car with stunning authenticity and offer owners the ultimate in customisation. However, while Type 62-2 elicits the original Type 62 Lotus hallmarks, it sets its own path as a Radford model - it's all about creating a feeling of driving something timeless.
The sound is good at close range but the bass isn't exactly tight (you can only expect so much from an $80 system). This would work fine as an audio system in a small room, but just doesn't have the juice to sound good in a larger room (it's touted as having 80W of power but power ratings don't mean all that much).
Sir Nick said as the government teetered on the verge of collapse he had been focused on 'giving confidence' to the country's military, which had been trained and equipped by the UK and US for two decades.
It will be sold with forged alloy wheels - 17 inches up front and 18 inches at the rear - and use adjustable coilover suspension, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and AP racing brake calipers and iron discs.
'It feels even more evocative when set to music - a bit like a silent movie and we thought it would be great fun to recreate the image as a stereo view at Stonehenge and breathe new life into an old photo.'
This special edition version stands apart from the other 12 Golf Leaf models due to its bespoke carbon fibre composite front splitter and rear diffuser, AP brake calipers and carbon ceramic brake rotors.
At its $269 price point, it delivers excellent sound in a compact, attractively minimalist design, which is why it appears to be so popular at the moment. Some sites have it back-ordered or not available in certain color options (I personally like the white).
From a design perspective, the Gold Leaf car with these bespoke additions really stands out, with larger diffusers, and wheels. And sporting one of the most iconic racing liveries ever to grace a Formula 1 car, gives the car a real presence and sense of occasion.
Moreover, the unit must be custom-made to suit the actual application. In general, you can find two typical types; one is with fixed magnification property and the other one with zoom facility. You must make sure to a buy top-class microscope in order to get precise solution
Audioengine's powered A5 speakers have been around for several years and have received some technology upgrades over time. The wired-only version is $400, but if you want to add a Bluetooth option, the price goes up to $499. You can connect to your PC either with a cable or via Bluetooth, but having Bluetooth is nice if you want these speakers to double as standard bookshelf speakers.
If you're looking to bypass your laptop speaker and take your audio experience to the next level, you should consider investing in a small or portable speaker to pick up the slack. The good news -- the market is completely saturated with computer speakers that offer quality sound. Even a budget computer speaker can boost sound quality to such an extent that you'll be shocked by the poor quality of your laptop speaker.
