But that long-predictable standard will soon change — radically. By October 2020, all soldiers will instead take the new Army combat-fitness test — a six-event exam that includes heavy deadlifting, a backward medicine-ball toss and dragging a 90-pound sled. “This fitness test is hard — no one should be under any illusions about it,” Gen.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s decision to block big donors from having special access to her presidential campaign amounts to voluntary disarmament – a major risk that could send precious dollars to competing campaigns.

The Duke, 97, the Queen, and Princes Charles and Harry test-drove the £400,000 top of the range Rolls-Royce Cullinan, named after a diamond in the Crown Jewels. The company lent the luxury 4x4 in the hope the Royals would lease one. But the Queen is said to feel loyalty to Jaguar Range Rover. A royal insider said the family “fell in love with” with the Rolls. They added: “They think it’s fantastic. “The problem is that the Queen feels loyalty to Jaguar Range Rover. "Otherwise she would jump at the Rolls.” My viewBy Nick Francis, Sun on Sunday Motoring editorNOTHING - and I really mean nothing - screams wealth as much as the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Think seven star hotel with wheels and an engine more powerful than a space shuttle’s, and you’ll get the picture. Decadent? Goes without saying. Vulgar? Some might say so. But Prince Philip and … [Read more...] about Prince Philip, 97, test-drove £400,000 155mph Rolls-Royce at Sandringham just days before horror crash
