Pininfarina-designed Hybrid Kinetic Group H500 takes shape
After recently revealing the H600, Hybrid Kinetic Group will unveil another electric model, later this month. This car uses micro-turbine range-extender technology and is of Pininfarina design. Due at the Beijing motor show on 25 April, 2018, the H500 sedan is a smaller sibling to the H600. It shares its powertrain technology with that car, as well as Hybrid Kinetic's HK GT coupé and K550 and K750 SUVs. The details for the H500 have yet to be revealed, though. However, the cars it shares its technology with offer up to 1,000km of range and use battery packs with 50,000-charge-cycle life spans. A preview image shows that the H500 will have four doors and a rear roofline that extends further back than on regular sedans, giving it the sort of silhouette we've come to expect from models prioritising rear head room, such as the BMW 3-series Gran Turismo. By opting for this bodyshape, the company has decided to mirror design trends in China, where demand for cars with generous rear room is higher than in most other countries. This is evident with the number of long-wheelbase versions of cars, such as the Jaguar XEL and XFL, on sale there. An image of the H500's interior shows that it features a wrap-around dash screen with a digital instrument cluster in addition to the other screen in the lower centre console. Pininfarina, the Italian design house, is soon to launch its own car company with an exotic electric hypercar which is being designed to rival the Bugatti Chiron. The brand has penned all of Hybrid Kinetic's models as part of a partnership worth £55 million (approximately Rs 504 crore).   [...]

US military fails to tackle sexual abuse of children by Afghan allies, report finds
Two-thirds of those interviewed by US government watchdog aware of child sexual assaults by Washington-backed Afghan security forcesThe US military showed little interest for years in tackling widespread sexual abuse of children by Afghan security forces it still funds and trains, according to a newly declassified report by a US government watchdog. The exact scale of the problem remains unclear due to a lack of guidance on how to respond to suspected cases, a lack of training on how to report them, and in some cases reluctance to do so for fear of reprisals, said the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (Sigar) in the report.

Harley-Davidson to sell pre-owned motorcycles
Harley-Davidson is considering setting up a pre-owned motorcycle business in India. The company’s Managing Director, Peter Mackenzie was quoted saying that the Harley has already been trying this concept out at some of its dealerships. The American motorcycle maker will soon begin offering pre-owned bikes at all of its 27 showrooms in India. The company’s dealer network is also expected to expand to around 30 showrooms by the end of this year. This decision comes from making an effort to make Harleys more accessible in the country and also to make it more convenient for existing customers to upgrade within the brand, itself. At present, there has been no word on the kind of warranty and service packages Harley-Davidson will offer for the used motorcycles. In similar news, March 2018 saw Royal Enfield launching its first pre-owned motorcycle store in Chennai. Coined 'Vintage', the Vintage store is part of a new format that will deal only in pre-owned, refurbished and restored motorcycles. It is designed for existing and potential Royal Enfield customers looking for quality-tested and certified pre-owned options. SOURCE [...]

Manchester ‘hero’ Chris Parker jailed for stealing from terror victims
The homeless "hero" of the Manchester terror attack has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for stealing from victims. Chris Parker was told he was "not the hero" he pretended to be but "just a common thief", as he was sentenced at Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday. The 33-year-old had previously admitted stealing a purse and a mobile phone from two victims of the Manchester Arena bombing on 22 May last year. At the time of the atrocity, which killed 22 and left more than 500 injured, Parker initially claimed he had been tending to those injured. Parker even spoke of how one woman died in his arms, after attacker Salman Abedi exploded a shrapnel-laden homemade bomb in the foyer of the concert venue, as fans left an Ariana Grande gig. His purported actions prompted members of the public to raise more than £50,000 for the rough sleeper; but he will no longer receive the money, from an online GoFundMe appeal, now the truth has emerged. Instead, Parker will serve four years and three months in jail for two counts of theft and one count of fraud Sentencing Parker, Judge David Hernandez told him: "You were not the hero you pretended to be, you were just a common thief. "It is hard to contemplate a more reprehensible set of circumstances." Speaking after the sentencing, Supt. Chris Hill, from Greater Manchester Police, said: "No matter what personal circumstances you might find yourself in, to steal from injured and terrified innocent people is deplorable. "Parker exploited these people when they were at their most vulnerable and needed the help of those around them. "I cannot begin to imagine what they have been through and I want to thank them for their courage." At a hearing earlier this month, Parker admitted taking the purse of Pauline Healey as her granddaughter, Sorrell Leczkowski, 14, lay dying yards away. He also admitted another count of theft, for taking the mobile phone of a teenager, and one count of fraud, after using Mrs Healey's bank cards in McDonald's on the night of the attack. Prosecutors said Parker had provided "some comfort and assistance" to victims, but also took the opportunity to steal from those hurt. Ben Southam, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: "His actions added to the immense distress the victims and their families have suffered and our thoughts remain with them." Mrs Healey had travelled to Manchester Arena with her daughter and granddaughter to meet someone, but they had not attended the concert themselves. [...]
