400,000 Baby Chicks Killed By Bankrupt Poultry Farm

Poultry workers reportedly wept as they carried out their grim task -- overseeing the death of about 400 thousand newborn chicks by drowning them in water or simply dumping them in rusty barrels outside where they would succumb to the freezing winter air. Around 600,000 more birds, housed at Russia's Krasnaya Polyana poultry farm have died of malnutrition, and the lives of 3 million others await a similar fate. A $190,000 tax debt, says the farm, has forced them to declare bankruptcy, leading to this killing of chickens on a horrific scale. Read More...

BMW 1 Series M Coupe: revealed

This is a Big Car. It is the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe, and it has finally come amongst us.
The newest baby of the M range is, according to BMW, the successor to the original E30 M3 of the 1980s; that rather fabulous track monster tamed for the road.
You have probably etched the salient facts of this 1M (not M1) onto your chest a-la' Memento, but if, like that film's amnesiac protagonist, you have forgotten, they are thus: 340bhp, 1,500kg and ten seconds quicker around the ‘Ring than the E46 M3.
It packs 331lb ft of torque (368lbs on overboost), hits 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and goes from 0-124mph in 17.3. It's 71mm and 44mm wider front and back than the 135i, and there are only three paint finishes - white, black and the orange you see above. It returns a claimed 29.4mpg and weighs in at £39,990.
