The speed-crazed fools over at Hennessey Performance recently got their hands on a brand-new 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1. To celebrate the car's presence—with just 26 miles on the odometer—the company's head honcho took the muscle car from zero to 173-miles-per-hour...and pit the new 'Maro against Chevy's flagship sports car, the Corvette Z06. The Camaro ZL1, which we first saw in person at the New York International Auto Show in March, is one beast of a machine.

United Launch Alliance has launched (no pun intended) a new online configurator that lets you design and build the rocket of your dreams on your home computer. To be fair, ULA’s online configurator for its Atlas V rocket—which you can access here—is a little more complex than your average automaker’s build-your-own website.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's Fatah party on Saturday held a vote for members of its ruling bodies that could give clues to a possible successor to the ageing leader. Fatah, the oldest Palestinian party, is holding its first congress in seven years at a time when Abbas is seeking to quell dissent in the face of internal rivalries.

A local Alaska Native corporation filed a civil lawsuit Wednesday that claims city officials rushed the process with insufficient outreach to the public.

By Ahmed Rasheed and Dominic Evans BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Facing brutal urban warfare in Mosul and with their push slowed by the presence of one million residents, Iraqi commanders examined changing strategy last week to help civilians leave to give the army a free hand to strike Islamic State fighters. The proposal, a sign of frustration at slow progress in the six-week campaign against Islamic State in Mosul, was ultimately dismissed by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi and his generals, military sources told Reuters in interviews. Islamic State militants who have controlled the city since mid-2014 have waged a lethal defense, deploying snipers, mortar fire and 600 suicide car bombers, as well as attacks launched from a network of tunnels beneath residential neighborhoods.
