  • Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Hits 246 MPH On Public Road: Video ($2.8 Million)

    Going fast on a private stretch of race track is quite enjoyable. Especially when there happens to be enough room to really let the car stretch its legs. That is why Volkswagen owns the Ehra-Lessien testing facility in Germany, which comes with a 5.4-mile long straight. It's also the perfect place to find the upper limits of a Bugatti Veyron. Sometimes though, an owner might get a chance to push his machine in a setting that's not quite as prepared for such an endeavor. The 2014 Sun Valley Road Rally recently took place near Ketchum, Idaho. This event turns the...

    LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) -- Another man was arrested on suspicion of arson in California as authorities were investigating into some of the wildfires that have been devastating large areas in the state for five days, officials said Thursday. Los Angeles police said they have taken Catalino Pineda, 41, into custody Wednesday after local residents reported that he light a fire and walked away from a hillside in a suburb area. The arrest was made a day after law enforcement officers shot dead an arson suspect and detained another in San Bernardino, about 100 kilometers east of Los Angeles....

    As flames advanced on the wealthy vacation community of Sun Valley, real estate agent Todd Conklin sent his wife and kids to safety, then offered spa treatments to some of the more than 1,600 firefighters and National Guardsmen arriving in town. “They said, ‘No, we don’t need that,”’ Conklin said. “So we just started buying them dinners.” Conklin’s offer is emblematic of how this town where Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Kerry, Demi Moore, Jamie Lee Curtis and Tom Hanks have second homes has dealt with a 78-square-mile wildfire that broke out more than two weeks ago. As F. Scott Fitzgerald famously...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger broke his leg on Saturday while skiing with his family in Sun Valley, Idaho, the governor's office said. The 59-year-old former movie star broke the femur bone in his right leg and was taken to a local hospital for X-rays and later discharged, Adam Mendelsohn, the governor's deputy chief of staff for communications, said in a statement. "When the governor returns to Los Angeles from his scheduled Christmas trip, he will have surgery to repair his femur. No one else was involved in the skiing accident," Mendelsohn's statement said.

Conceived in the early 1980s by banker Herbert Allen as a week-long mingling of Hollywood's elite, the 24th annual gathering kicks off this week with a group of executives unlikely to rub shoulders at other conferences.The informal event, which begins with presentations on Wednesday on topics ranging from healthcare to dependence on oil, was once dominated by media industry chatter.

    While George Soros and John Kerry were vacationing in neighboring mansions in Sun Valley, Idaho, the two men chatted on the phone but avoided a personal meeting, “because,” as Soros told USA Today, “of how it would be interpreted.”   For Soros, who has put down at least $18 million to defeat Bush this year, keeping up appearances is essential. Coordination between the 527 groups Soros has been raining money down upon and the Kerry campaign, after all, is strictly verboten in the age of McCain-Feingold. Is it plausible the Dems’ billionaire benefactor and the candidate avoided talk of the election...

    On 8 March 2004 at a campaign stop in Hollywood, Florida, John Kerry accused Republicans of stealing the last election, and he promised for this coming fall a rerun of the democrats’ litigation model which, although it failed in 2000, has not lost its luster for them. In addition, he spoke of unnamed foreign leaders who really wanted him to beat Bush. Such statements indicate to me that the pressure of campaigning for top job was already getting to him. In any case, afterward his handlers bundled him off Idaho for some snowboarding and message polishing. While there he revealed...

    POLITICAL MEMO Bad Timing as Kerry Slips Out of Picture By ADAM NAGOURNEY and JODI WILGOREN ASHINGTON, March 31 — At the very moment that President Bush has begun his general election campaign, Senator John Kerry has largely slipped from sight. And Mr. Bush has made the most of Mr. Kerry's absence. Mr. Kerry's low profile occurs at what would seem to be a particularly opportune time for the senator. Mr. Bush has been struggling with questions about his record on terrorism, and Mr. Kerry had been riding on a wave of excitement after his capture of the Democratic nomination....

    When Sen. John F. Kerry fell - or was toppled by a Secret Service agent - from his perch on a snowboard recently, the would-be president clarified events with rare grace: "I don't fall down," he said. "That son-of-a-bitch ran into me." Or "knocked me over," depending on which version you read. Spoken like a true 7-year-old. Any parent will recognize the template: Little boy falls down, then jumps to his feet and declares for the benefit of anyone who will indulge his fractured ego: "I meant to do that." Sometimes the little tyke will run over to his mother...

    April 5 issue - Weeks before Richard Clarke's assault, the anti-Bush universe was alive with anticipatory chatter. "Clarke's book is going to be devastating," a member of Sen. John Kerry's circle cheerfully predicted early last month. The launch date depended on the 9/11 commission, which announced on March 8 that it would examine counterterrorism (meaning public testimony from Clarke) on March 23 and 24. Wheels whirred into motion. CBS slated Clarke for the "60 Minutes" broadcast of March 21; his publisher, owned by the same company, advanced his "pub date" from April 27 to March 22.

    KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) — Hitting the slopes one final time on his ski vacation, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry on Tuesday ducked a dispute over what some Democrats are calling a White House effort to discredit former counterterrorism adviser Richard Clarke. "I don't know anything about it," said Kerry, questioned by reporters as he arrived at the ski slopes. "It's my last hours, my last hours." In a new book, Clarke contends that the White House didn't respond to warnings of potential terrorist attacks and manipulated the nation into a war with Iraq. The White House has moved aggressively...

    KETCHUM, Idaho - Plunging into a vacation filled with extreme sports, John Kerry is tumbling and sweating through mountain conditions that even ski experts say are challenging. "The snow up there was the worst I've ever seen," Kerry said Friday after spending more than three hours on a backcountry mountain. "I've never seen the snow so soft." Kerry, his snowboard strapped to his back, hiked past 9,000 feet on Durrance Peak, then snowboarded down the mountain, taking repeated tumbles. Reporters counted six falls, although Kerry was out of sight for part of the descent. To be fair, other skiers tumbled...

    John Kerry: Skiing and Campaigning on the Taxpayer Dollar (take action here)In 1996, Bob Dole had the tact to resign his vaunted leadership position in the Senate, and his Senate seat, when he need to campaign full-time.  Apparently, John Kerry is selfish and thoughtless, lacking the discretion of Senator Dole.  Not only has Senator Kerry refused to resign his seat (he doesn't even hold a leadership position), Senator Kerry has been absent for this entire session (except for one gun-grabbing vote) and absent for 64% of the last session.This is unacceptable.  What is even more unacceptable is that the Secretary...

    (More on Snowboarding F'n Kerry)ABC News Kerry campaign reporter "Diamond" Ed O'Keefe, who, (not) incidentally, looks hot in his ski gear, files this exclusive report from atop Bald Mountain in Idaho: As Senator John Kerry carved his Burton snowboard down a green rated Upper College run, another skier interrupted his stride, colliding with the presumptive Democratic nominee at 9,010 feet. The slope-cade of two Ski Patrollers, several Secret Service agents, two journalists, one camera and one Kerry aide suddenly came to a halt. The Massachusetts Senator lay on the ground, removed his Smith sunglasses, and surveyed the damage. Assured that...

    Well, it turns out Hillary Clinton isn't the only one to use abusive language against Secret Service agents. Foulmouthed John "F." Kerry, noted for his obscenity-laced Web site and naughty interview with Rolling Stone, is at again. Trying to relax at the mansion in Idaho to avoid further meltdown, the Massachusetts Democrat saw his photo opportunity on the ski slopes go awry. The New York Times reported today that Kerry rammed into one of his protectors, fell down and had himself a snow sandwich. "When asked about the mishap a moment later, he said sharply, 'I don't fall down,' then...

    ETCHUM, Idaho, March 18 — John Kerry was in the air, approaching the Continental Divide, and the candidate often ridiculed as straddling both sides of political divides was wrestling with the big matter at hand. Should he ski, or snowboard? Or maybe both? He gave no clue where he stood. But that was Wednesday night. A longtime adviser recently suggested that there were two John Kerrys: "indoor John and outdoor John" — one who agonizes over decisions, and another who acts boldly on them. It was outdoor John, decidedly so, who emerged from an armored S.U.V. at the foot of...
