Tonka

In the clouds Tasked with a difficult inner-city site, Techne Architects pairs an ethereal installation with a welcome element of restraint to produce a distinctive new bar and restaurant in Melbourne.

The spatial planning brings a sense of unexpected ceremony to what is, in fact, a distinctly subdued interior.

The proliferation of architect-designed hospitality establishments hat have characterised Melbourne’s dining scene in recent years has raised the bar when it comes to producing truly standout interiors. So, when Techne Architects was commissioned to remodel the old Honkytonks nightclub into Tonka, a modern Indian restaurant run by Mykal and Kate Bartholomew

Tomorrow is here.

Ruchi Sawhney visits the office of Kumar Group, steered by celebrated architect Gopakumar and his son Anuj in Kochi. There is an established architectural firm, rooted in the rich cultural legacy of Kerala, ready to take a bold leap forward.

Kerala’s architectural heritage is much celebrated and cherished by its people but sadly, the march of consumerism and growth are taking design trends to a new direction. Kochi used to be a city where the eyes would sweep over the swaying coconut fronds and beyond to the blue skies, but alas that was a good 20 years ago. I’ve seen

TOM CLANCYS RAINBOW SIX: ROGUE SPEAR

Rogue Spear — как последний патрон. Так и видится мирная картинка: представительный дедушка Том Клэнси в старинном кожаном кресле, окруженный толпой любящих румяных бестселлеров, среди которых, увы, как ни напрягай зрение, не выглядишь трех лучших его пасынков. Все правильно: семейство R6 всегда стояло на внимании к мельчайшим деталям, и развитие, движение вперед выражается именно в мелочах, незаметных поначалу подробностях. Eagle Watch можно считать жалким набором из пяти дополнительных миссий, но те, кто прошел ее до конца, знают, что это — чудесная маленькая игра, вполне полноценная, со своим ритмом, тактикой и стратегией, не так уж и напоминающая исходный R6. А ведь

TOKINA

Reflex 300mm f/6.3 MF Macro £279

Affordable 300mm catadioptric (gla ss and mirror) lens for Micro-Four

First impressions of Tokina’s Reflex 300mm f/6.3 are very good. The lens has a simple design that devotes the majority of its all-metal barrel to a generous manual focusing ring with object distances marked in both metres and feet. There are no other switches or controls of any sort. Focusing is a little stiff, and a more prominent grip would doubtless make rotation easier, but the movement feels very smooth.

Most lenses provide about 90° of rotation on the manual focusing ring but Tokina’s

AVANTASIA

Двенадцать лет и шесть студийных альбомов. За время, прошедшее с момента появления первого релиза под вывеской AVANTASIA, этот проект Тобиаса Замета приобрел поистине культовый статус. Он также стал своеобразным «краеугольным камнем» современного европейского (да и мирового тоже) хэви-метала, поскольку в этом горниле были сплавлены воедино многие прогрессивные силы тяжелой сцены. Взгляните хотя бы на список тех, кто в разные годы работал бок о бок с Заметом над альбомами Avantasia. Тут вам и Михаэль Киске (ex-Helloween, Unisonic), и Шарон ден Адель (Within Temptation), и Кай Хансен (ex-Helloween, Gamma Ray). А еще – Тимо Толки (ex-Stratovarius, Revolution Renaissance), Джон Олива (Savatage,

TOCA 2: TOURING CARS

Против правды не попрешь. Обдумывая название рецензии, никак не мог отвязаться от слова “утюг”. И что вы думаете? Открываю февральский .EXE и вижу название превью, включающее в себя именно этот обидный образ! Налицо как штампованные аллегории со стороны вашего покорного, так и оставшаяся абсолютно невыносимой игровая физика.

Cпрос на братишек и сестренок TOCA 2 никогда не исчезал. Правда, не в РС-индустрии, а в более приземленном мире игровых автоматов. Под хруст пережевываемого попкорна и бульканье пива в жестянке круги нарезаются значительно легче, а сложность “симулятора” увеличивается по мере поглощения выпивки. Требования чавкающего гонщика невелики, времени всегда в обрез — трасса должна

To find leaders who were at the forefront of the diversity movement, we first identified companies with reputations for successfully leveraging diversity. We then assessed their progress at creating inclusive cultures by examining, where available, employment statistics, leadership attitudes, and thirdparty recognition. (Information pertaining to employment statistics and third-party recognition was collected using public sources.

Leadership attitudes were assessed on the basis of public sources, published interviews, and involvement in diversity initiatives.) We also took cultural differences into account.

For example, 6% of the Japanese automaker Nissan’s management is female, a ratio that sounds dismal from a U.S. citizen’s vantage point.

But the Japanese national average for female representation in management is 2%; Nissan is actually significantly ahead of the curve.

After identifying these companies, we selected CEOs to participate in interviews as part of an exploratory study. We wanted them to represent different industries and regions, as well as different stages of inclusivity. For

TITANIUM TAKES THE PRESSURE

Titanium was named after the Titans, a group of powerful and immortal gods in classical mythology. One of their number was Oceanus, who was believed by the Greeks and Romans to be the divine personification of an enormous river that encircled the world on the line of the equator.

It is fitting, therefore, that the cases for the finest diver’s watches are made of this remarkable element, which in its metallic form is resistant to corrosion (especially in salt water) and boasts the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal. The striking C11 Titanium Elite Chronometer is the first Christopher Ward
