Let's Do The News! (November 10, 2014)

Welcome back, here is your current sitrep:

- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe finished his talks with Xi Jinping, the president of the People's Republic of China during the APEC Forum in the Chinese capitol of Beijing.

- Chinese and Russian companies signed a memorandum on a new pipeline route to send Russian natural gas to the People's Republic of China. The China National Petroleum Corporation and Gazprom from Russia have signed the document as the two leaders, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin, looked on.

- Back at the Ukraine Crisis, the rise of Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine raised concerns from the US and the European Union. There has been a heavy fighting at Donetsk airport followed by an overnight artillery bombardment, shaking an already fragile ceasefire. Russia denies claims that it is supplying the separatists.

- Several earthquakes occurred earlier in the Philippines. There was a M4.2 quake jolted Cebu followed by a M5.5 quake in Surigao.

- Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte personally gave the P1 million reward he promised to those who cooperate on the arrest of slain racing driver Enzo Pastor's alleged gunman.

- THIS IS THE F-15E GARUDA. In model kit form perhaps. Hasegawa will start selling this limited-edition model kit based on the hero plane from Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation next month. The F-15E Garuda model kit aircraft is based on the F-15E Strike Eagle with the same dark grey color scheme used by the Emmeria Air Force 8th Air Division 28th Fighter Squadron that fought alongside a large army in the game. Named after a mythical bird-like creature from the Hindu mythology, the Garuda Team was known for destroying the enemy aerial fleet.

Pair this one with the Su-33 Strigon plane and you can recreate every single dogfight from the game.

- Following the success of the movie, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will spawn a cartoon show on Disney XD next year!

- THIS IS THE NEW HONDA LEGEND. The latest generation of Honda's flagship premium sedan is now powered with the same hybrid drivetrain from the upcoming NSX. That's right. It now comes with the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, which combines three electric motors with a 3.5L V6 engine equipped with Variable Cylinder Management. It's mated with a 7-speed double-clutch gearbox which sounds nice. It is the first to come with the first ever Honda Sensing system which comes with Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Traffic Sign Recognition. Sales start on the 22nd of January next year, which is great because 2015 marks the Honda Legend's 30th anniversary.

- A group of former Israeli Intelligence unit members, now founders of Argus Cyber Security, announced that they've remotely hacked a car that contained an aftermarket device with some major security problems.

The researchers said that security loopholes would have allowed them to remotely control the car from anywhere in the world.
