Putin Says Further Discussion Needed

Putin says further discussion needed

One day after the bilateral summit meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Russian President Vladimir Putin said further discussion is needed over the territorial issue.

Putin said, "Prime Minister Abe told me that Japan is ready to go back to the1956 declaration between the Soviet Union and Japan. But the declaration does not clearly stipulate everything. It only states the basic idea that the Soviet Union was ready to hand over 2 of the islands in the southern part. It does not say on what basis the islands would be handed over. Nor does it say anything about the sovereignty over the islands. Japan had previously rejected implementing this agreement. Now that it is willing to consider it, we need to examine the idea in good faith."

2018 Mazda6 Refresh Takes The Car Further Upmarket

2018 Mazda6 refresh takes the car further upmarket

The 2018 Mazda6 is, on the surface, a very mild refresh. The front grille has been given more depth, and the fascia is generally cleaned up a bit, putting the design inline with the new CX-5 and future Mazda products. The interior has been given the same treatment: cleaned up and modernized. But throughout the car, some important updates under the skin make the 6 a more compelling product, and one that continues the company's push upmarket.

The biggest change has already been partly revealed, and that's the addition of Mazda's turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. It's the same engine found in the CX-9, and Mazda has now revealed it will make the same 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque with premium fuel. The engine will also happily accept 87-octane, in which case the engine will make 227 horsepower. Though the addition of this engine is welcome, we're a bit disappointed to learn that it will only be available with a six-speed automatic transmission. If we're lucky, we might see Mazda add a manual option, since when Mazda launched the current Mazda3, the larger 2.5-liter engine was initially only available with an automatic. But try not to get your hopes up too high, either.

Ea Holding Off On Further Nintendo Switch Development For Now

EA Holding Off On Further Nintendo Switch Development For Now

When it comes to publishers of video games, EA is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, publishers around, which is why when the company announced that they would be releasing games for the Nintendo Switch, it was considered a pretty big deal, and sort of a tip of the hat at Nintendo for creating a potentially viable console.

However it seems that EA could be reining in their enthusiasm. According to The Wall Street Journal's Sarah Needleman, it looks like EA will be holding off on future Nintendo Switch titles for now until they have given FIFA 18 an entire year on the market. The report quotes the publisher's CFO Blake Jorgensen who claims that it's too soon to judge how well FIFA 18 on the Switch has done, and that the company needs more time to understand what the demand is for the Switch before committing more resources to it.
