  4. Last year, when I read in the press—or when Mark came in my room in Japan jumping all over the place and screaming at me—it wasn’t a nice time. And I was the first one who was unhappy with myself, but it doesn’t help when you read the press or the other drivers blaming you for things you don’t like to do. Then I worked hard, its not a secret, with a psychologist in Paris, and I really like the work we do, and I think I’m a better man and a better driver, and its nice to hear that from them, but mainly I’m proud of what I did under tough circumstances. I think if I lost self confidence I would have collapsed a long time ago and I didn’t. Even the start of this year was difficult, Kimi was strong and it was a tough time, and then I managed to turn the situation around, and today I’m feeling pretty good, am very proud of myself and what we are doing, and I’m sure the race win will come.

  7. Four to six-year-olds struggle with ‘little LEGO’ so the product line was trying to help them with that. We did a lot of research in Europe and the US about what both parents and kids’ needs were. Generally speaking, parents in the US and to a lesser extent the UK are quite fixated on educational outcomes at ever earlier ages, whereas in Scandinavia and especially Germany they openly reject that, feeling strongly that this age is for play and socialising and scholastic learning comes later.

    Dae Do told parking attendants at Alliance Parking on Canal Street that he’d lost his claim ticket for the Audi, which was parked in an outdoor lot, but pleaded that he needed to get the car before midnight. And apparently, because he asked nicely, the attendant gave him the keys and let him drive off on August 1st.

    Do was caught by police a day later speeding on the NJ Turnpike; he allegedly put more than a thousand miles on the car, smashed the fender, and stunk up the interior. “He made the interior disgusting,” said owner Caroline Bone. “He not only ruined the front fender, he also put 1,100 miles on the car in about 24 hours.”
