Cole.Fresh off of dropping his fifth album KOD, and likely earning his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 along the way, then premiering a new music video starring GRAMMY-nominated comedian Kevin Hart, Cole has shown no signs of slowing down.His next big move? Launching a brand-new music festival in his home state of North Carolina. Details are currently sparse on Cole’s new Dreamville Music Festival, beyond a colorful website and a sign-up link to gain access to early-bird presale tickets. However, given that Dreamville Fest will be Cole’s label Dreamville Records’ first foray into the world of large-scale music festivals, it is highly likely that the event will see an exciting billing of rising talent co-signed by Cole himself, along with some special guests.”We’ve been trying to put this festival together for a few years now,” explained Dreamville Records manager/president Ibrahim ‘Ib’ Hamad to the Associated Press.  “It’s going to be a variety of different acts that we love or excite us … [and] something we want to build for years and years to come.”Dreamville Music Festival will take place in Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, N.C. on Sept. 15.

Waiting for an EV charger sucks but Hyundai has a concept that


first_img Share your voice One of the problems with owning an electric vehicle is trying to charge it away from your home. It’s not that chargers aren’t getting pretty common, but rather that since electric vehicles have gotten increasingly popular, space at chargers can be tough to find. Compound that with people’s tendency to leave their car while it’s charging and it’s easy to understand EV owners’ frustration.Hyundai and Kia think that they have a viable solution to that. The two sister companies debuted a video on Thursday that shows a vehicle using both wireless vehicle charging technology and Hyundai’s Automated Valet Parking System (AVPS) to maximize efficiency at the charging station without needing a human to monitor the situation.The system works first by parking a wireless EV charging-capable car over a charge pad. Computers monitor its state of charge and when it reaches a predetermined level, the AVPS takes over, moving the car to a vacant parking spot elsewhere in the garage. The next car in the queue waiting to charge then automatically takes its space, and the process repeats.While it’s just a concept for now, Hyundai did state that it plans to roll this technology out when Level 4 autonomous capability is available in its vehicles, which it predicts will happen sometime in 2025. Is that a long wait for parking convenience? Yep, but parking convenience is some of the very best convenience, don’t you think?

Taxmen raid Bengaluru auto driver who bought Rs 16 cr villa in


first_img[Representational image]Twitter/Vishal SAfter the high-profile hunt of political leaders and their benamis during the elections, Income Tax (IT) officials Bengaluru trained their guns on an auto rickshaw driver. In this case, the man raided was not a regular auto driver but someone who owns a home in an upscale villa community.The tax sleuths raided Subramani’s home after it was learnt that he bought a villa in Jatti Dwarkamai Villas on ECC Road in Whitefield area of the Silicon Valley worth Rs 1.6 crore. Subramani paid the full amount in cash for the purchase in 2018. The IT officials questioned him on Wednesday after the department issued a notice asking him to furnish the source of income. The man, who bought the posh villa, had not filed his tax returns. The IT sleuths suspect that Subramani might be a benami holder of the villa.It was alleged that a pot of gold and other documents were seized from the villa but the IT officials said that no cash or other evidence was seized from the house. The IT officials said that after getting a tip-off, the department wanted to know his source of income. They also said that no search operations were conducted in the villa and no arrest warrant has been issued on Subramani. SubramanitwitterAccording to the reports, Subramani said that the house was gifted to him by an American lady for his services as an auto driver, after coming to know that he was financially unstable. ”She was struggling to get a cab or an autorickshaw. I stopped my auto and dropped her home. Again after a few days, she happened to get into my auto. She then asked me if I can offer the services whenever she called,” Subramani explained, reports Bangalore Mirror.The American lady got to know about his poor financial condition after she visited his rented house, where he was living with his wife and children. He said that she helped him by funding his children’s education. She had also helped many auto drivers, said Subramani. He also said that he had insisted on a small house but she directed him to buy a villa and transferred the required amount to make the purchase.On April 16, the IT department sent a notice to the construction company of the villa, Jatti Engineering Pvt Ltd, to furnish copies of the ledgers and sale documents of the villa. According to the reports, the primary investigations by the IT sleuths had revealed that Subramani had links with top politicians including the BJP legislator from Mahadevapura, Aravind Limbavalli. But the MLA has denied any connection with Subramani.Subramani also said that he has no links with the former minister and that he took a photo with the MLA when he had visited the area. However, the officials are investigating the matter. They are still trying to find out if the alleged woman had actually paid him money to buy the house.last_img read more

SuperUseful Web Services


first_imgMarch 18, 2008 Brought to you by PCWorld Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer If you dig around the Web long enough, you’re bound to find things somebody might not want you to know. (Maybe, like me, you hang your laundry out in the backyard.) This week I have a bunch of sites to help you dig up the dirt and do some serious research.Find the Dirt on Your NeighborWith two free Web services, I found the address of a neighbor, his first and last name, his phone number, and how much his home is worth. If Zillow would only update its images, I could even tell you if he hangs his laundry out in the backyard.I met a neighbor while walking the dogs, and we chatted a while. When I got home, I decided to pop something in the mail. (It was some census tract stuff if you must know.) He lives about two blocks down the road, but for the life of me, I couldn’t remember the guy’s name or his street address. Okay, sure, I could’ve just dropped by his house. But what would I have to write about today, eh?I popped open Zillow and searched on my neighborhood until I found the image of his house, then clicked on it. Zillow told me lots of stuff about the value of his home. What I needed–and got–was his street address.Now that I had his street address, I went to the Reverse Lookup tab at 411Locate, entered info in the Reverse Address Lookup section, and got lucky. In a second, I had Jess’s name. You might not be so fortunate–411Locate doesn’t always come up with the right name.Dig This: Tempted to buy a set of those newfangled color-pencil input devices? Be sure to read the review first–it details advanced features, usability, and, no surprise, bugs.Trulia’s Hindsight: Watch Cities GrowIf you enjoyed Zillow, you might also like Trulia. But there’s more to this real-estate site than you might expect. I was poking around the other day and discovered Trulia Hindsight, which shows annual population growth in most parts of the U.S.Once you’re on Trulia Hindsight, click on Plano, Texas. You’ll see a city map paint on the screen and a timeline at the bottom of the page will begin to advance. The map begins to populate, showing how the area developed over time.Use the contrast slider on the bottom right to adjust how much of the background you want to see and the slider on the bottom left to zoom in or out of the map.Once you get your bearings, grab the timeline slider, move it to the left, then slowly move it to the right. Type a city and state into the search field at the top to find your home town. Unfortunately, the site doesn’t have data for every area. If your town isn’t on Trulia’s radar, try downtown Los Angeles.Dig This: You’ve gotta watch The Front Fell Off. My editor started kvetching that while hilarious, it also looks quite plausible. And she complained that the actors aren’t getting credit even though there are lots of clips floating around the Internet. Okay, so here goes: The guys are Australian comedy team Bruce and Dawe.Top 5 Little-Known Research Web SitesAskNow lets you ask a librarian a question.
