2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Spied For The Last Time Ahead Of Debut

The Great Wall of China, the cooling pond of Chernobyl, Bingham Canyon Mine, and the Greenhouses of Almería are some of the few things on Earth you can see from space. Well, prepare to add the Porsche 911 GT3 RS’ rear wing to the list as the track-focused machine has been spotted at the Nürburgring with a hardcore aerodynamic package. It looks as though the prototype had little to no camouflage on its aggressive coupe body.

The lack of disguise doesn’t come as a big surprise since we are days away from the car’s official reveal. Porsche has already announced the 992-generation 911 GT3 RS will break cover on August 17 when we’ll see the track monster in full. It’ll serve as the range-topping model for a while considering a potential GT2 RS is typically launched near the end of the generation.

When it comes to outright top speed, the Turbo S should still reign supreme, while the 911 hybrid could become the most powerful of them all. Porsche will also explore the sports car’s adventurous side by introducing a high-riding variant believed to be called Dakar or Safari. A purely electric 911 won’t arrive before the end of the decade.

Since we mentioned power, Porsche has said the new 911 GT3 RS will have “approximately 500 PS,” which is 493 horsepower. However, chances are it’ll pack more punch since the non-RS derivative is already at 502 hp. No word about torque, but we’ll remind you the regular GT3 boasts 469 Newton-meters (346 pound-feet) from its six-cylinder boxer engine.

An educated guess tells us Porsche has found ways to shave off even more weight while increasing downforce at the rear axle judging by the colossal wing. The naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six will send power to the rear axle probably only through a seven-speed PDK, so look elsewhere in the vast 911 lineup if you want a manual transmission.

The peeps from Zuffenhausen have set up a livestream for the world premiere on Wednesday, so watch this space to discover the 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.


Olivia Wilde is out with one of her kids in post – after winning custody battle with Jason Sudeikis

Olivia Wilde appeared to be in her element in her Sunday Instagram Story, after emerging victorious in her custody battle with her ex Jason Sudeikis.

The beaming actress, 38, flashed her legs in a thigh-split green floral maxi dress as she threw a hand in the air while out-and-about with one of her children in London.

It is unclear whether it was Otis, eight, or daughter Daisy, five, accompanying their mum on the evening out, however they were riding a purple scooter.

A follow-up snap saw Harry Styles’ girlfriend share a delicious-looking beverage with a mystery companion, featuring a smiley face on top of its froth.

Olivia and Jason, 46, initially met at a Saturday Night Live finale party in 2011.

The actress was previously married to Tao Ruspoli, and their marriage lasted from 2003 until 2011.

She subsequently began seeing the Horrible Bosses star, and they welcomed their son Otis into their lives in 2014 after having become engaged the year prior.

The former couple went on to expand their family with the birth of their daughter Daisy in 2016.

The couple remained together for several years before it was announced that they had separated in November of 2020.

She subsequently began dating Harry, whom she directed in her upcoming thriller feature, Don’t Worry Darling.

The actor recently became the subject of criticism when his former partner was served custody papers at CinemaCon this past April.

The actress was in the middle of a presentation for 4,100 film industry executives about Don’t Worry Darling when she was awkwardly handed a manila envelope by a court process server.

The bizarre moment sparked furious speculation among attendees and reporters at the annual gathering of cinema owners and Hollywood studios about the envelope’s contents.

Neither of the parties publicly addressed the incident, and a source close to Jason later claimed that he did not know Olivia would be served the papers in such a public and humiliating way.

The actor claimed he had always hoped she would be served in a ‘benign manner’ and requested service take place at Heathrow Airport, rather than at Styles’ home.

Olivia referenced the embarrassing incident for the first time in her court motion during her custody battle, slamming her ex for his ‘outrageous legal tactics’ and delivering the documents ‘mid-speech.’

Jason previously filed the suit against his ex in New York City Family Court over their two children in October 2021. He had wanted his kids to live with him in Brooklyn.

Olivia, however, wanted them to stay with her in Los Angeles, and possibly relocate to London, where Harry lives.

The judge, in a legal filing signed August 5, ruled ‘New York was not the home state of the subject children’ and that rather ‘California was the children’s home state.’

‘Therefore, for the reasons stated on the record on July 15, 2022, respondent’s motion to dismiss the custody petitions filed on October 21, 2021 is granted,’ the filing, which was reviewed by Page Six, stated.

The court determined ‘New York does not have jurisdiction to hear the custody petitions’ because it is not Otis and Daisy’s home state.

The custody battle will now have to be tried in California, so the ‘whole thing will start over’ in court there, legal experts allege.

Premier League, Chelsea transfers, rumor mill, transfer flops, Fernando Torres, Timo Werner, number nine jersey curse, Romelu Lukaku

Heavy spenders Chelsea have already been busy during the transfer window, and are almost certainly not finished despite spending €186.59m ($A270m) so far.

According to reports, the club are reportedly prepared to sign both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona, ​​as well as Wesley Fofana from Leicester.

Chelsea have already signed Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Gabriel Slonina, Carney Chukwuemeka and Marc Cucurella in their squad overhaul.

World-class striker Aubameyang, a former club captain of London rivals Arsenal, would represent the latest in a long line of superstar strikers to have joined Stamford Bridge – although many have struggled to make their mark.

Indeed, Chelsea’s number nine jersey has been worn by so many flops in recent years that coach Thomas Tuchel revealed that no-one will wear the number this season.

“It’s cursed, it’s cursed, people tell me it’s cursed … nobody wants to touch the No 9,” he said.

But it’s not just the number nine jersey that has been a curse at Chelsea. Dating back to the end of the last century, many of Chelsea’s big-name attacking signings have failed to make their mark.

Here are some of the great Blues flops of the modern era.

Transfer fee: £10m ($17m AUD) from Blackburn in 1999

Playing record: One goal in 28 Premier League games

Chelsea reached deep into their pockets to lure Sutton to Stamford Bridge from relegation stricken Blackburn, for what was then a club record fee.

The striker had signed from the Rovers, where he starred alongside Premier League icon Alan Shearer, after they placed second-last in the 1998-99 season.

Haaland scores twice in EPL debut! | 01:07

But the former England international had a forgettable debut campaign with the Blues, scoring just one goal from his 28 Premier League appearances.

Sutton’s sole contribution on the scoresheet came in a 5-0 thrashing of English giants Manchester United, which was a highlight in an otherwise quiet tenure in London.

His season went from bad to worse when he failed to make Chelsea’s bench for the 2000 FA Cup Final against Aston Villa, which the Blues won 1-0.

Sutton was a one season flop at Chelsea, though, after securing a transfer to Scottish giants Celtic.


Transfer fees: €22.5m ($32m AUD) from Parma in 2003

Playing record: 10 goals from 38 games

Mutu began his Chelsea career in fine form, scoring four goals from his first three appearances for the giants of English football.

Playing in front of new fans for the first time, the Romanian scored the winning goal on his club debut against Leicester City.

But drama ensued as his relationship with Jose Mourinho reportedly reached its boiling point, with Mutu facing backlash from his manager after he claimed to be injured.

Chelsea later fired the striker after he tested positive for cocaine use in 2004, and was suspended for seven months.

Although he was not at the London club anymore, Mutu failed another anti-doping test in January of 2010, as reported by the Guardian.

Mutu, who also wore the number seven jersey at Chelsea, was handed a nine-month ban for that incident.

Transfer fees: €43.9m ($63m AUD) from Milan in 2006

Playing record: Nine goals from 48 Premier League games

Chelsea splashed the cash once again to sign Ukrainian Andriy Shevchenko, who became the biggest signing in English football at the time.

Shevchenko, who was 30-year-old when he moved to London from Milan, was handed the number seven jersey under decorated coach Jose Mourinho.

But he failed to live up to the hype, scoring just 14 goals from 51 games during his first season with the famous London club.

Shevchenko was loaned out to AC Milan, the club he’d signed from, during the 2008/09 season after failing to hit his stride at Stamford Bridge.

As reported by The Guardian, manager Carlo Ancelotti believed that Shevchenko was the fourth best striker at the club, just three years after he secured his record transfer.

Shevchenko was left out of Chelsea’s squad for the 2009/10 Champions League, and later returned to Dynamo Kyiv.


Transfer fees: £50m ($85m AUD) from Liverpool in 2011

Playing record: 20 goals in 110 Premier League games for Chelsea

Fernando Torres rose to footballing stardom during a successful stint at Liverpool, where he truly embodied the phrase ‘human highlight reel’.

Torres had already made his name in Spain, after being handed the Atletico Madrid captaincy at just 19 years of age.

The Spaniard left Madrid for Liverpool, although he’d return to the club at the back end of his career, and quickly proved himself to be one of the most exciting players in England.

But drama struck early in 2011, as Torres completed a sensational transfer to Premier League rivals Chelsea.

The Blues again broke the British transfer record for a reported fee of £50 million, as the striker completed a mid-season move sent shockwaves throughout the league.

Hollywood couldn’t have scripted it better, though, as Torres made his club debut for Chelsea after Liverpool.

The Blues lost that 1-0 and maybe it was a sign of things to come, as Torres went on to score just 20 goals in 110 Premier League appearances for Chelsea.

But while he failed to fire, these big money moves are all about making an impact when it counts, and Torres did that in the biggest competition that world football has to offer.

While he was far from an overwhelming success at Stamford Bridge, Torres did score a game sealing goal against Barcelona in a Champions League semi-final.

Chelsea went on to win their first ever Champions League crown in the 2011-12 campaign, beating German powerhouse Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties.


Transfer fee: £11m ($18m AUD) from Basel in 2014

Playing record: Two goals from 13 games

Mohamed Salah has cemented his legacy as a Premier League legend after a stellar career with Liverpool, but his career in England wasn’t always so successful.

The ‘Egyptian King’ made just 19 appearances for Chelsea, before he was loaned out to Fiorentina just 13-months after moving to London.

Klopp laments ‘really bad’ Liverpool | 03:00

Salah’s two best Premier League games in Blue came in a 6-0 win over rivals Arsenal, where he scored, as well as a promising showing against Stoke.

Salah was later loaned out to Roma, before securing a permanent move to the Italian capital soon after.

But the scintillating winger really took his career to the next Liverpool after he secured a well-known transfer to Liverpool.

Not only has Salah tasted success in both the Champions League and Premier League with the Merseyside club, but he’s widely considered to be one of the best footballers on the planet.

In fact he’s become so popular, the Economist revealed that more than one million Egyptians spoiled their ballots by trying to vote for Salah during the presidential election in 2018.

With many noteworthy individual accolades on the football field to speak of as well, Salah is certainly another gem that Chelsea failed to cherish when they had the chance.


Transfer fees: Around £60m ($103m AUD) from Real Madrid in 2017

Playing record: 24 goals from about 72 games

After impressive spells with European giants Juventus and Real Madrid, Morata was brought into the club as a replacement for Diego Costa.

Costa, who won two Premier League titles and scored 59 goals for Chelsea, returned to Atletico Madrid after being told he was free to look elsewhere.

Morata was another striker who had the weight of the world on his shoulders when he moved to Stamford Bridge, due to the hype surrounding his arrival.

But the Spaniard failed to make an impression on the scoresheet, scoring just 15 goals in his 48 games.

After initially signing for the club on a five year deal, Morata was eventually loaned out to Atletico Madrid on an 18-month deal.

Atletico signed him on a permanent deal later, although he was loaned out to Juventus soon after in September, 2020.


Transfer fees: €60m ($87m AUD) from RB Leipzig in 2020

playing record 23 goals in 89 appearances

Werner was one of the hottest properties on the football transfer market as European giants came looking to sign the star striker after an incredible spell at RB Leipzig.

During his four years at the German club, Werner scored 90 goals and had 40 assists from 156 competitive games.

Liverpool were also believed to be in the hunt for his signature, before he completed an expensive move to Chelsea on a five-year deal.

But the German quickly fell out of favor at Chelsea, having scored just 23 goals in 89 appearances.

With Chelsea reportedly looking to sign some strikers in the ongoing transfer window, the 26-year-old left the club and returned to RB Leipzig.


Transfer fees: £97.5m ($167m AUD) from Inter Milan in 2021

Playing record: 15 goals in all competitions from 44 games

Belgian Romelu Lukaku may have had a fairly expensive price tag to his name last year, but that didn’t stop Chelsea from making another mind-blowing investment in their future.

Once again, the Blues broke their transfer record to sign the striker from Italian giants Inter Milan.

With their Champions League glory still fresh in the minds of football fans, Chelsea managed to lure the powerful striker back to Stamford Bridge on an incredible transfer.

Despite their European success, Chelsea had come fourth in the Premier League the year before, but this signing was widely considered to be a difference maker.

Many believed that Lukaku could fire for the Blues after a previous stint at the club earlier in his career, before more well-known and successful stints with the likes of Everton and Manchester United.

But it was a disastrous return to the Premier League for Lukaku, who scored just eight goals before completing a loan move back to Inter Milan – and leaving the number nine jersey vacant.



insane! Thousands of Tesla electric cars are on the way to Australia

If you’ve noticed more Tesla electric cars on the roads since the EV maker began delivering its latest model to Australian drivers, get ready to see even more.

The Tesla Model Y went on sale in June in Australia after a long wait. We estimated as many as 12,000 were ordered within days of the Model Y order page opening.

Now, a record number of Tesla Model 3s and Model Ys have been snapped lined up Shanghai dockyards ahead of a massive influx, as well as more than 300 Model 3s at Fremantle docks.

Glovis loaded with Teslas just left last week, and this week the dock was once again filled with more Teslas,” said Giga Shanghai watcher Wu Wa posting a video of more than 8,000 cars at dock in China on Friday (see the end of this article for the video.)

Images shared by him on Twitter show the thousands of Tesla cars awaiting shipping at South Port terminal, Shanghai, with many built-in right-hand drive for markets such as Australia and New Zealand.

“We noticed that most of the cars in this batch are right-hand steering, and we understand from the factory that most of the cars in this batch are aimed at the AU market,” said Wu Wa.

And it’s a record number, according to Sawyer Merritt, a Tesla investor who posts regularly on the EV maker. He says he counted more than 8,800 cars waiting at the dock.

This batch of Teslas above beat the previous record of about 7,000 that were there in mid-July for export. This to me is partly an indication that production output is indeed increasing following the recent Giga Shanghai factory upgrades. INSANE amount of Teslas!” he said in a follow up post.

Tesla shipping tracker Vedaprime says there are as many as 7,000 to 8,000 Tesla cars already on ships headed for Australia.

“It’s just the craziest thing,” he said vedaprime in a note to The Driven.

To deal with the massive influx, Tesla is decentralizing its delivery processes, and ships are headed to Port Kembla, the Port of Melbourne as well as, for the first time, straight to Fremantle in Western Australia.

This image shared exclusively to The Driven by Tesla owners and Tesla Owners Club of Western Australia (TOCWA) secretary Harald Murphy shows 334 Model 3s at Fremantle docks on Sunday.

Tesla’s export production dropped by a significant 64% in July compared to June as the carmaker shut down its assembly line for an upgrade.

As reported by The Driven’s Riz Akhtar, the upgrade allows Tesla to produce 2,000 more cars a day.

The production ramp couldn’t come soon enough for some. For some Tesla customers who ordered a Model 3 as far back as January, it’s been a long, long wait (although, no doubt some will point out, not as long as the three-year wait for the Model 3 before it arrived in 2019 !)


Your guide to Gran Turismo 7’s Daily Races, w/c 15th August: Blue Monday

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 15th August: Blue Monday

This week’s Gran Turismo 7 Daily Races feature an open choice at Blue Moon Speedway, Gr.2s at Fuji and Gr.3 racing at Maggiore.

In a welcome continuation, Race A of Gran Turismo 7’s Daily Races gives players the chance to tune and set up a car. And even better – following on from last week’s chance to customize the performance of an E46 BMW M3, this week the car choice is completely open (within certain criteria, naturally).

As a reminder, we are now using GT7’s new Balance of Performance (BoP) system, introduced in the v1.19 July update. BoP is now split into three categories depending on the type of track used: High-speed (H), Mid-speed (M) and Low-speed (L).

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 15th August: Blue Monday

The BoP has been fairly unsuccessful at equalizing performance, however – especially in the Gr.4 class, where four-wheel-drive cars reign supreme – but the more popular Gr.3 cars do seem to be on the right track at least.

As of the 30th of May, Race A will not affect players’ Driver Rating (DR) and Sportsmanship Rating (SR). This means it’s ideal for newcomers to online racing, or those simply unwilling to risk their hard-fought DR and SR


Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 15th August: Blue Monday

As mentioned previously, GT7 players can flex their tuning muscles in Race A this week. As long as you have a road car with less than 246bhp, weighing at least 1,100kg, anything goes.

These power and weight figures place your car choice slap bang in the heart of front-wheel-drive hot hatch territory. And our recommended car is one of the best-looking examples of the past two decades: the Volkswagen Scirocco R.

Although based on VW Golf underpinnings, the Scirocco had coupe looks which made it a desirable option for people craving a practical performance car without sacrificing design. I liked them so much I bought a 2.0l TSI version a few years back… (although VW technicians thought that losing over a liter of oil every thousand miles was acceptable – long story)

The R version produced slightly more power than the TSI (from the same engine) and the DSG-gearbox version could do the 0-62mph run in just 5.6s – impressive considering its front-engined, front-wheel-drive layout.

As far as tuning goes, you will have to fit a power restrictor to get under the 246bhp limit, as the R comes with 252bhp as standard. The next step is to reduce its weight by purchasing Weight Reduction in the Tuning Shop, with any shortfall supplemented by the addition of ballast.

After improving the car’s suspension, braking and transmission why not have a look at our GT7 front-wheel-drive set-up guide for set-up tips? Try lowering the car’s ride heights and adding more negative camber for starters, they’re sure-fire ways to improve lap times. Obviously, adding a ridiculous-looking wing and over-sized alloy wheels has the same effect.

Race A takes place at Blue Moon Speedway’s Infield A Reverse course. It’s a fairly uninspiring track, but at the very least the oval’s banking gives you a chance to stretch your car’s legs.

Recommended car: Volkswagen Scirocco R ’10 – (Brand Central, 51,500 Credits)

Race B

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 15th August: Blue Monday

We return to Gr.2 cars for Race B this time, with Japanese Super GT and 24 Hours of Le Mans GT1 cars available to choose from. The track is Japan’s Fuji International Speedway, which should give you a hint as to the type of car you need to pick…

That’s right, the GT500 cars of the Super GT series are head and shoulders above the Le Mans cars in Race B, and we recommend using the 2016 Nissan GT-R Nismo. Powered by a 2.0l, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the GT-R has been the most successful GT500 model in Super GT history, winning titles in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015.

It has won races in the top class of Japanese touring car racing every year until the model was retired at the end of 2021, much to the dismay of racing fans who loved its aggressive looks.

Fuji is a track that suits the GT-R – Ronnie Quintarelli and Tsugio Matsuda piloted this very car to win in the second round of the Super GT championship in 2016.

Race B uses the Mid-speed (H) BoP format.

Recommended car: Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500 ’16 (Brand Central 800,000 Credits or free rental)

Race C

Your guide to Gran Turismo 7's Daily Races, w/c 15th August: Blue Monday

Race C adds an element of strategy to this week’s Daily Races, as tire wear is set to 10x. The Mazda RX-VISION GT3 CONCEPT is an excellent choice in Gr.3 this week, however, the Porsche 911 RSR (991) is equally as powerful, and with its flat-six soundtrack, you’d be mad not to pick it.

The car was a massive success in its GTE guise, claiming 10 FIA World Endurance Championship class wins from 15 starts, as well as 10 wins from 33 IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship starts.

We return to the well-worn Autodrome Lago Maggiore track for Race C, this time visiting its East layout. It’s a low-speed, technical track that will test the tire-saving abilities of GT7 players.

Race C uses the Lew-speed (L) BoP format.

Recommended car: Porsche 911 RSR (991) ’17 (Brand Central 450,000 Credits or free rental)

Lap Time Challenge

‘Living sculpture’ Daniel Lismore brings wearable art to London with Fashion in Motion exhibition

British artist Daniel Lismore’s monumental pieces of “wearable art”, featuring everything from rubbish to elaborate headgear studded with jewels, took center stage at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum on Friday, August 5.

Guests were invited to closely inspect the nearly 2-metre-tall pieces, one of which was worn by Lismore, who calls himself “a living sculpture”.

“I’m not a performance artist or a drag queen, I just live as art,” he said.

The pieces — featuring brightly colored fabrics and metallic embellishments — took between two hours and eight months to put together, and were inspired by people and objects from around the world, Lismore said.

“There’s hundreds of stories in each piece,” he said.

“There’s an honorary iD magazine cover. There’s a piece that I wore to Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Platinum Party. There’s pieces from everywhere you can imagine, things I find on the floor, rubbish, pieces from Bulgari, pieces from all over.”

Mannequins wearing colorful and extravagant yet haunting costumes are lined up facing the camera.

The piece he wore on August 5 was among his heaviest, he said, and featured items of personal significance.

“I wanted to put all my memories of over the years, from when I was a teen, when I was bullied and all these things that meant something to me throughout my life,” Lismore said.

“And it had mirrors, it was to kind of reflect on whoever was looking at me so they could see themselves in me somehow.”

The artist, who made his London debut with the show, presented 12 pieces from his traveling exhibition Be Yourself, Everybody Else is Taken, which opened in Atlanta in 2016.

Cricket Australia targets sport’s inclusion at 2032 Olympics

Cricket Australia has targeted the inclusion of the sport at the 2032 Brisbane Olympics as part of a strategic plan to expand participation and maintain the game’s position at the heart of the country’s sporting culture.

The ambitious “Where the Game Grows” plan released on Monday aims to double the number of children aged five to 12 playing the game to 210,000 over the next five years, with girls making up 60,000 of that tally.

Another of the targets is to get cricket back into the Olympics for the first time since 1900 – if that goal has not already been achieved at the 2028 Summer Games in Los Angeles.

Cricket has been shortlisted for possible inclusion at the 2028 Olympics along eight other sports and the International Cricket Council (ICC) will make a presentation to organizers later this month.

The host city can include any sport but needs the approval of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Brisbane has plans to rebuild the city’s Gabba cricket ground as a 50,000-seater Olympic Stadium to host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2032 Games.

The inclusion of cricket in the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics is part of the “sustainable future” strand of the plan, which also aims to improve fan experience, expand the grassroots and continue Australia’s success on the world stage.

CA has set a target of at least three ICC tournament triumphs over the next five years for both the men’s and women’s national teams.

Elsewhere, it has committed to publishing an action plan related to environmental sustainability.

“Cricket is a quintessential part of the Australian summer. However, recent years have shown how vulnerable our game is to a changing climate,” the document said.

There is also a strong focus on the BBL and WBBL with this season labeled the “Rebound” following the impact of Covid, especially on attendance, before a period that has been called “Reimagine”. The challenges are particularly acute for the BBL given the rapid growth of T20 leagues in the January window.

“This strategy contains both a vision and a clear plan for how we can achieve bold, transformative change while also meeting our core responsibilities,” said CA chief executive Nick Hockley.

“I would like to thank everyone across the game for their passion and commitment as we work to unite and inspire everyone to love and play cricket, and in so doing make cricket a sport for all that makes Australians proud.”



Bondi brewery bar and restaurant Curly Lewis brings local beer to the beach

A beer after a beach swim is pretty hard to pass up, and now Bondi-goers can enjoy the suburb’s very own brew, with the arrival of the strip’s first brewery bar and restaurant.

Curly Lewis, which opens on Campbell Parade on Friday, August 19, is a collaboration between four long-time locals Adam Richards, Oliver dos Remedios, Gareth Morton and Loren Morton, and brewer Scotty Morgan.

The team wanted to bring a brewery experience – until recently mostly restricted to the city’s inner west and northern beaches – to the eastern suburbs.

“The idea started as one of those typical pub chats that turn into a brainstorm on a coaster,” Richards says.

“It’s common knowledge that when you’re from Bondi you generally don’t leave the bubble, so we thought … let’s give another reason to not have to leave, and for people outside of Bondi to enjoy too, of course.”

The venue includes a working brewery, bar and diner, and launches with two main beers: the Curly Lewis Clean Cut Lager, a “crisp, smooth straight-up lager”, and Bondi Hazy Ale, which is “hazy and hoppy with tropical notes “.

Both are available on site and in neighboring bottle shops and venues.

“Our core beers needed a clean and easy drinking approachability, made for those baking hot beach days,” Morgan says.

The brewer has also devised a rotating menu of small-batch, seasonal and experimental beers (called “wildcards”) and seltzer, offered on 20 stainless steel taps.

These include a “fresh, sour and salty” Salty Mermaid Gose, made on-site with a few buckets of ocean water, and richer beers including an IPA and coffee stout.

A curated list of spirits, cocktails and independent-label wines are also available.

Don’t expect the usual pub grub, however. Popular Bronte Road spot Frank’s Deli is in charge of kitchen operations, with co-owners Sammy Jukubiak and Ben Kelly bringing a menu to Euro-style snacks and plates.

Dishes include Frank’s meatballs, croquettes and chargrilled prawns with Aleppo butter alongside sandwiches such as Portuguese chicken, Frank’s reuben and vegan mushroom toasties. For desserts, it’s a crowd-pleasing burnt basque cheesecake.

Interior architects ACME (designers of Fred’s, Margaret and Archie Rose) are behind the 120-seater’s look, with natural materials, beer tanks, outdoor seating and timber bars enhancing the casual, coastal vibe.

“People will be able to walk straight in from the beach in wet togs, pull up a chair at the bar and enjoy a fresh brew,” dos Remedios says.

Open Tue-Sat 11am-11pm; Sun 11am-10pm.

Samsung executive gives details of the Galaxy Watch 5’s advanced sleep monitoring

Sleep tracking is becoming a more prominent feature of smartwatches these days, and many companies are working on delivering better sleep tracking capabilities to their smartwatch lineups. Samsung has recently announced its newest smartwatches: the Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, and now a Samsung executive has shared how the sleep monitoring of the new watches has been improved, reports The Korea Herald.

Pre-order the Galaxy Watch 5 or the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

The two newest smartwatches by Samsung are now up for pre-order:

Samsung executive says the Watch 5 has the world’s most advanced sleep-tracking tech

Samsung Electronics executive vice president Yang Tae-jong, who is the head of health research and development in Samsung’s mobile experience unit, stated the Watch 5 sports the world’s most advanced tech for sleep tracking, during a press conference in New York. He underlined that the new wearable device features various technologies, including an innovative Bioactive sensor, and that those technologies will help make the Watch 5 the best partner for keeping healthy habits and sleep patterns.

Yang also noted that Samsung has been developing technologies related to sleep tracking for a long time. The Watch 5 monitors different stages of sleep, detects snoring, and also measures blood oxygen levels to determine how well you sleep, and to transform that info into a score.

On top of that, the sleep coaching function will provide customized programs for better and healthier sleep habits. The sleep coaching program is offered for free and is in cooperation with Samsung Medical Center.

But Samsung has not stopped yet. Yang stated the company is working with the US National Sleep Foundation, as well as with laboratories at UC San Diego and UC San Francisco for research on sleep technology. It is also working with those entities to utilize relevant data for clinical trials.

The Watch 5 also has a new temperature sensor, which uses infrared tech for a more accurate reading. It could also be used to measure sleep. However, the executive did not mention when the new temperature-measuring services will begin (those are yet to receive the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety’s, formerly the Korea Food & Drug Administration’s official approval).

Yang also stated that he believes smartwatches in the future could become more medically-centered and could be used to monitor patients and for digital treatments as well.

He underlined three pillars as the direction of Samsung’s health business: innovation, connectivity, and cooperation.

Galaxy Watch 5: recap of the improvements it brings over the Galaxy Watch 4

The Galaxy Watch 5 is now in its pre-order period (you can pre-order yours from the section above), and come with some notable improvements over its predecessor. It features a bigger battery and a big improvement in charging. The smartwatch can now last around eight hours after just eight minutes on the charger, and it now supports 10W wireless WPC-based charging.

In terms of features, the mentioned above innovative Bioactive sensor combines a host of specialized health sensors for accurate health data and fitness and wellness insights. The Watch’s Biometric analysis has been upgraded, and it now not only performs a comprehensive body composition analysis but will also give you advice on how to attain your goals.

It will also remind you to re-hydrate after an intense cardio session, for example. And, in terms of sleep, it will feature notifications for recurring sleep disorders such as sleep apnea (a condition in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts), if it detects something like that with its sleep monitoring capabilities. On top of that, the coaching plan the Watch 5 will provide for sleep will have individualized checkpoints, targets, and milestones, to help you build better sleep habits.

Stay tuned for our Galaxy Watch 5 review to see how we’ve found the smartwatch performs in all those categories mentioned above.


The Block house shut down after asbestos found

There was a worrying development in Monday’s episode of The Block, as a contestant hammered into the floor of his house – only to discover what he suspected to be asbestos.

Melboune plumber Tom was nearing the end of the demolition process for he and wife Sarah-Jane’s guest bedroom, with just a small section of floor left to smash.

But when the mallet came down, he made a startling discovery.

“As soon as I saw it, I’m like: Oh god, here we go, more delays,” he said.

The Block moved quickly once the deadly substance was spotted, with everyone in House One downing tools for a full day as a team moved in to assess the risk and remove the asbestos.

“They shut our house down, and rightfully so – asbestos is very dangerous,” said Tom, who was left with little to do but visit his fellow contestants while he nervously waited to see how long his house would be out of action.

Some six hours later, foremen Keith and Dan finally returned to the site to give the all-clear that work could summarize.

And Dan also offered some explanation as to why the asbestos hadn’t been spotted before the houses were handed over to the contestants: “In this location, under the fireplace and used as formwork, it’s very hard to locate. That’s why we didn’t find it – Tom’s done the right thing in alerting us,” he said.

Elsewhere in Monday’s episode, contestant Sharon was clearly still smarting after she and partner Ankur’s bathroom came dead last in Sunday’s judging.

The couple had copped a particularly tough critique from judge Shaynna Blaze, who warned them that their house was “the grand dame, the jewel in the crown. Are you going to treat her like Este? Because if you’re going to treat her like this, you’re going to have to deal with me.”
Sharon was left in tears immediately after the judging, declaring that in a week one on The Blockshe was already “over it.”

One episode on, and she was in a more defiant mood.

“(Shaynna) goes, ‘That’s my house, I love this house, I’m really angry that they did this…’” Sharon began.

“Well, it’s not your house, babes. You haven’t bought it. If you’re gonna buy it, that’s a different story.”

She continued to call out Shaynna directly, arguing that she had missed some of the key details in the room the couple had included to appeal to her.

“Also, I did try to cater for you. You said you wanted antiques, but your antique eye didn’t even recognize the antiques in the room. I literally had stuff in there from the 1890s!”

Sharon said that, in the wake of the tough judging, she’d made a promise to husband Ankur that she wouldn’t beat herself up so much moving forward.

“That’s the pact that we’ve made to each other, because I’ve literally spent every day crying since I got here – and that’s not a good thing.”
