2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS 580 Interior Deep Dive

Welcome to Ministry of Interior Affairs, a new feature that highlights the interior design and functionality of some of the most popular vehicles available in Canada.

Here’s a bold claim: I think that what we’re looking at here, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS, might just be the most beautiful interior you’ll find in any three-row SUV on the market.

Of course, this comes with some caveats. Number one: at a list price of $133,500 with options, it’s certainly not for the faint of wallet. Number two: every single one of the men who looked at this disagreed with me. The leather

With nearly three decades of experience, this entrepreneur has designed homes of RP Sanjeev Goenka, the Birla

Sushmita Singh claims to be a perfectionist, taking on life one task at a time. The 22-year-old wanted to earn a name for herself instead of being referred to as her “father’s daughter” — a common expression for women in her hometown Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh.

So I decided to explore the field of designing, and see what happens,” Sushmita tells HerStory.

Five Interior villages have joined Fairbanks-based tribal consortium Tanana Chiefs Conference in suing three federal agencies over what they say was a “rushed, flawed and premature” permitting process for the controversial road to access the Ambler Mining District.

Department slams brakes on diversity classes — Friday, September 25, 2020 —

The Interior Department, one of the government’s whitest agencies, is postponing a series of training events on race and diversity in light of recent directives from the White House.

In an email to agency leaders obtained by E&E News, Interior’s chief diversity officer said the “Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Conversations” will be put on hold until further guidance from the White House.

The email is in response to a Sept. 4 memo from the Office of Management and Budget that banned agency spending on any training event that discusses “white privilege,” characterizing it as “divisive, anti-American propaganda.”

“We found that the department did not deploy and operate a secure wireless network infrastructure,” the team wrote in an audit report released Wednesday. “Specifically, the department’s wireless network policy did not ensure bureaus kept

Commercial interior design is in for a bumpy ride

The interior design industry has not historically been obsessed with—or even interested in—data. It’s a phenomenon all too familiar to Amanda Schneider, the founder of ThinkLab, a market research agency that seeks to bring a quantitative approach to a highly qualitative industry. “We have to sell ‘why research’ more than what we actually do,” she tells Business of Home. “[As designers], we are a bunch of passionate individuals that really trust our guts.”

Since ThinkLab was acquired by Sandow in 2018 (the firm was originally named Contract Consulting Group), Schneider has been working on both privately funded studies for

2020 Toyota Highlander features new look, improved interior, better fuel economy

With the redesign of the exterior the overall dimensions of the interior improve with a cabin that feels roomier in the first and second rows. As is the case with most SUVs in the segment, the third row is cramped and should be reserved for children.

Cargo room, however, is much improved with 16 cubic feet behind the third row and 84.3 cubic feet of overall space.

There are five trims available for the Highlander including L, LE, XLE, Limited and Platinum. My tester was the top-of-the-line Platinum trim. It had an MSRP of $48,800. With a few optional equipment
