Saab Aero

The Saab Aero marque represents the high-performance division of cars produced by Saab Automobile. The Aero marque is in reference to Saab's history as an aircraft manufacturer; the first Aero model was the 1984 Saab 900 Aero, every Saab model has been offered in an Aero trim level since then. The final Aero model was the 2014 Saab 9-3, manufactured by the holding company NEVS; this was the last time a Saab-branded vehicle has been manufactured by the holding company. The Saab 900 Aero was introduced for the 1984 model year, or as it was known in the U. S. "Special Performance Group". The Aero/SPG incorporated a body skirt; each of these features could, of course, be ordered independently from Saab's Accessories Catalog for fitment to standard models. Power output varied by model year and market, but 900S and 900 Turbo models produced after 1985 were fitted with a 16-valve engine, while the basic 900 kept the earlier 8-valve engine; some modern Aero-model Saab cars featured only a slight increase in performance, such as the Saab 9-3, while other models featured a dramatic increase in performance, such as the Saab 9-7X.

The base 4.2 i 9-7X produced 285 horsepower. Saab Aero-X Official website

Berlin Storkower Stra├če station

Storkower Straße is a railway station in the Prenzlauer Berg locality of Berlin, close to the locality's border with Fennpfuhl. Located at the Ringbahn it is served by and; the station was opened in 1881 under the name of Zentralviehhof, as the vast area south of the station was the site of Berlin's central slaughterhouse that received animals by rail here. An over 400-metre long pedestrian bridge crossed the processing plant connecting the station with the Friedrichshain residential areas; the station was renamed in the 1970s, while in 1991 the slaughterhouse closed. The notorious bridge except for about 150 m above the tracks was demolished in 2002; the remaining portion of the bridge, which stretches from Storkower Straße north of the station to Hermann-Blankenstein-Straße south of the station, was renovated and now serves as the only entrance and exit to the station

Azad Kuh

Azad Kuh is one of the highest peaks in the central Alburz Range in Mazandaran province north of Iran. In Persian Kuh means mountain and Azad means free, so Azad Kuh can be translated to The Free Mountain; this name is chosen by local people because of Azad Kuh's cone like shape and the fact that it is not connected to its surrounding peaks. Azad kuh is not a technical climb and you won't need any rock climbing gear in summer. There are two routes for climbing this peak, the easier and shorter one is from Kalaak-e-Baalaa village and the longer one is from Vaarange Rud village; the former takes 1 -- the latter 2 -- 3 days. There is no shelter in neither route and you need to carry your own tent if you are planning to camp. Azad Kuh is not such an easy climb in the winter as there is the potential danger of avalanche in either route

Global Entry

Global Entry is a program of the U. S. Customs and Border Protection service that allows pre-approved, low-risk travelers to receive expedited clearance through automatic kiosks at select airports upon arrival into the United States; as of May 4th, 2018, Global Entry was available at 15 preclearance locations. More than 5 million people are enrolled in Global Entry and 50,000 new applications for the program are filed monthly. To enroll in Global Entry, applicants must first file an application with Customs and Border Protection, submit to an interview and background check; the wait for an interview may be months. There is no minimum number of international trips required to qualify for the Global Entry program. There is a $100 non-refundable fee for the application for infants and children. During the interview, the applicant's fingerprints are captured and a digital photo is taken. Applicants are given instructions on how to use the automated kiosk. Once an application is approved, the applicant may use the Global Entry kiosk at any participating airport for a duration of five years past one's next birthday following approval.

Renewal in some cases, an additional interview. The TSA maintains a list of credit card issuers and loyalty programs that reimburse members' TSA PreCheck or Global Entry application fees. Enrolled users must present their machine-readable passport or permanent residency card, submit their fingerprints to establish identity. Users complete a computerized customs declaration, are issued a receipt instructing them to either proceed to baggage claim, or to a normal inspection booth for an interview. Enrolled users are provided with an RFID-enabled Global Entry membership card that may be used to enter the United States via expedited NEXUS lanes from Canada, or SENTRI lanes from Mexico, or at sea ports of entry. Note: The Global Entry Card cannot be used to enter Canada; as of January 2020, nationals of the following countries may apply for Global Entry: Argentina Colombia Germany India Mexico Panama Singapore South Korea Switzerland Taiwan United Kingdom United States Nationals and permanent residents of Canada are not eligible to apply for Global Entry but they may apply for NEXUS, whose members have all benefits of Global Entry including using Global Entry kiosks.

Nationals of the Netherlands could apply for Global Entry before 2017, existing members may continue using the program. New applications are expected to resume under a new agreement in 2020. Australia and Brazil are expected to start participation in Global Entry in 2020, after a trial with a small number of their nationals, it is possible for any type of criminal conviction to disqualify a traveler from the Global Entry program: it is a risk-based system to facilitate the entry of pre-approved travelers. Three to five percent of travelers who sign up for the program are rejected. Applicants may not qualify if they provide false or incomplete information on the application, have pending criminal charges or other issues such as, for example, have paid a fine for having a prohibited or undeclared item at a port of entry; those whose Global Entry applications are denied have three ways to appeal: making an appointment to speak with a supervisor at a trusted traveler enrollment center, e-mailing the CBP Trusted Traveler Ombudsman, or filing a complaint through the Department of Homeland Security's Traveler Redress Inquiry Program.

CBP claims that in less than one percent of cases in which Global Entry was granted, it will be revoked. In these situations, an explanation for the revocation is not supplied. New York's enacted immigrant sanctuary "Green Light Law" prohibits its state DMV from sharing criminal records with the federal Customs and Border Protection or Immigration and Customs Enforcement without a court order. In response to this law, on February 6, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it would begin prohibiting New York state residents from applying for or renewing Trusted Traveler programs including Global Entry; this affects about 175,000 New Yorkers whose Trusted Traveler memberships will expire in 2020 and another 80,000 New Yorkers with pending applications. The Trump administration said it would reinstate the Trusted Traveler program if New York state opened its DMV records to the federal government. New York did not agree to these terms; the next day, state officials promised to sue the Trump administration.

They said the lawsuit would argue that "the federal government’s actions were arbitrary and capricious, did not provide state residents equal protection and violated the state’s sovereign immunity," as The New York Times explained. New York attorney general Letitia James filed the lawsuit against CBP and DHS on February 10. However, on February 12, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he would comply with the Trump administration's request, he said he would propose either a legislative bill or a change to the New York state budget to grant the federal government access to New York's motor vehicle data. If the change is introduced by this method, it will not take effect for several months; this was to be done in exchange for the Trump administration reopening the Trusted Traveler program for New Yorker
