The royal sported a stylish look for her latest TV appearance.

Duchess Kate was recently spotted in a stylish look that we haven’t quite seen her in before.

Gather ’round, fans of The Matrix franchise, because new details about The Matrix 4 have emerged. The Matrix 4 co-star Jessica Henwick (Iron FistGame of Thrones) has shared new details about director Lana Wachowski‘s filming style on the next Matrix movie. The fourth installment will arrive in theaters in 2021, nearly 20 years after the third movie, The Matrix Revolutions, was released.

Vanlife Concept Camper injects the Ducato with style and purpose

German camper van converter Vanlife Manufaktur aims to elevate the van life experience to a higher level. Its Concept Camper demonstrates those ambitions unequivocally, turning the cold, white walls of the Fiat Ducato into the type of warm, homey lodge-on-wheels any roadway adventurer will happily retire to each evening. Real wood, hidden components and a spacious layout combine to push Vanlife’s Concept above and beyond the typical mass-produced camper van roaming Europe.

With several years of experience creating custom van conversions, Vanlife Manufaktur turned its attention toward creating more of an over-the-counter conversion package, introducing the Concept Camper earlier this year. “Concept Camper” was originally a code name but seems to have stuck, appearing across Vanlife’s website, price list, inquiry form and social media presence. The project has become a Concept Camper that’s more than just a camper concept.

2021 Honda Accord reveal: Fresh style, more tech but no manual gearbox

Bigger grilles are all the rage.


Honda

One of Roadshow’s favorite family sedans is getting a freshened look and a brace of new equipment. The 2021 Honda Accord bowed on Monday with slightly tweaked styling, more tech and a new trim level that will surely appeal to those shopping the popular Accord Sport variant. All in all, the updates should be much appreciated by those still interested in a vehicle with four doors and a trunk.

Every Accord trim gets a redesigned, wider grille that incorporates some new horizontal pieces to emphasize width. It’s definitely not a huge change, but it helps the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist tech work even better, according to the automaker. LED headlights are also standard on Accord Sport and above, though those shopping the Accord Hybrid will need to splurge for at least the EX trim for the same lighting tech. Every Accord except

Inside the dream home: $5.9-million Oakville residence will channel Miami-style luxury

What if snow melted the moment it hit your driveway? Could your home’s temperature adjust itself according to the seven-day weather forecast? How would warm floors feel beneath your feet in every room you walked through?

The 23-foot-high great room sits in the heart of the home's main floor and blends together with the open kitchen.

Those conveniences are among the features of a new home in Oakville that is unsurpassed “from a design and tech perspective” in that market, says broker Steve Bailey of The Agency.

The five-bedroom showstopper, going for just under $6 million, is as smart and smart-looking as they come, said Bob Zamani, property manager for Zamani Homes, which is building the spec home in a prestigious enclave bordering Lake Ontario.

Deep tones contrast with a pale wall and floor palette in the kitchen that will include a bar-style island and built-in wine cellar.

Showcasing the latest technology, it will include lights that dim or brighten by sliding a finger on a pad; a fingerprint scan to unlock the front door; and features such as music and window blinds that respond to spoken or touch commands.

CLOSE

Shortridge High School’s The Daily Echo newspaper staff talks about reviving the oldest school newspaper in the country.

Indianapolis Star

What can three teenagers do when armed with reporters’ notebooks? Take home an award in a national journalism competition. 

When 17-year-old Maybelline Samoza heard that her three-person Gadsden County High School newspaper had won second place in the American Scholastic Press Association competition, she said it felt like her heart “dropped for a moment.”

Samoza didn’t know that her English and journalism teacher, John Nogowski, had even entered their student newspaper, the Gadsden County Gazette, into the journalism competition during the teenager’s last year at the school. Nogowski told her to check her email to fact check him. 

“I thought he was just kidding,” she said in a recent interview. “I saw the certificate,

5 paint colors that will never go out of style

It’s a fun time to choose one of these trendy colors to make a statement with a powder-room update or a bold accent wall. Or, if it’s your style, go wild with the color of the year in a living area or bedroom.

But if you’re looking for an interior paint color that will transcend trends, and you don’t enjoy painting every three years to keep up with what’s in style (some of us do!), you may want to look for a classic color that will hold up better over the long haul.

“Timeless colors . . . never grow old,” says California-based color expert Jennifer Guerin. “They may be used in different ways — walls versus trim or accents — but they always stay in style.”

Beware, though, that even classic neutrals can be so overdone that they become trendy. An all-gray room, for example, could easily date to
