  • LONDON, May 1 (Xinhua) -- Britain's determination to lead the way in research into dementia was given a massive boost Sunday.

    The country's two leading charities into the condition, the Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK each announced their biggest ever financial commitments to a cause, each pledging 50 million pounds (73 million U.S. dollars).

    The 100 million pounds will be added to the 220 million U.S. dollars already announced by Prime Minister David Cameron to pay for Britain's first ever Dementia Research Institute.

    The Medical Research Council also announced Sunday the launch of a search for an outstanding scientist to head the new institute, expected to be an expert to drive forward world class research.

    The new institute, due to open in 2020, will bring together scientists and experts from across the globe to transform the landscape of dementia, one of the biggest conditions facing the human race.

    "It will transform the landscape of dementia research and firmly secure the UK's reputation as a world leader in research and development against these devastating diseases," said a spokesman for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

    The involvement of the country's two leading dementia charities will be essential in drawing together the work of scientists and medical professionals with experience of people living with dementia across the country, helping to create the link between research findings and delivering real changes for the treatment, care and prevention of dementia, added the spokesman.

    The new institute will have a central UK hub with a network of regional centers and will engage hundreds of scientists. It will focus on the innovative, discovery science needed to unlock the understanding of the mechanisms underlying the development and progression of the dementias.

    The research will help to drive new approaches to diagnosis, treatment, care provision and ultimately prevention of the disease.

    Science Minister Jo Johnson said: "We want Britain to lead the way in tackling this terrible condition, and scientific research and understanding is crucial to this."

    Jeremy Hughes, the Alzheimer's Society CEO said: "The new institute heralds an exciting era for global dementia research as it launches an unprecedented collaboration of world-leading dementia expertise and provides the largest single investment in dementia research to date."

    Government officials estimate that in 20 years the number of Britons suffering dementia will be around 1.7 million, double the current figure. The disease costs Britain, including its NHS, more than 38 billion U.S. dollars a year in care costs, but there are currently no treatments available to stop or reverse the disease process. (1 pound = 1.46 U.S. dollars)

    The V70 Nick Martin Color Rush Jersey , available only in front drive with a 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine, rings up at a base price of $33,210. At that number, the V70 is an entirely different proposition. It?s even $6240 cheaper than the six-cylinder S80 and $4310 less that its all-wheel-drive sibling Will Fuller V Color Rush Jersey , the XC70. And despite the price break, the V70 rides on the same platform as the S80. That means the same crash structure and the same safety equipment: front, side, and curtain airbags; anti-whiplash headrests; and panic brake assist.

    Things are looking better for the V70 than its sedan sibling. On a literal level J.J. Watt Color Rush Jersey , the V70?s looks are underwhelmingly pleasant. The old V70 went out of its way to define a new look for Volvo. The new wagon is a step backward from that boldness. Its character has been ironed out in the form of smoother, rounded sheetmetal. The new design retains the rear taillights that run from the bumper to the roof, now a Volvo wagon trademark. The V70 looks thoroughly modern, even classy Deshaun Watson Color Rush Jersey , but it?s not going to shatter any preconceptions about the stylishness of wagons.

    The V70?s only available engine is the 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder making 235 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque. It?s a big gain from the 157 horsepower that the old base engine produced and only 12 horsepower shy of the go-fast T5?s 247.

    The inline-six has its appeal, even if it lacks the oomph of the old T5. It?s the same engine found in other Volvos, as well as in the Land Rover LR2, and it features variable intake-valve timing. It?s mated to a six-speed automatic. Smooth is the name of the game Texans Benardrick McKinney Jersey , and unlike in the old turbo, torque steer is nearly imperceptible.

    The 0-to-60-mph sprint happens in a respectable 7.5 seconds. That?s only 0.3 second behind the T5 and more than a second quicker than the V70 Cross Country with the base engine that we tested in October 2000.

    Respectable, yes, but perhaps not noteworthy. This seems to be a recurring theme. The V70 Texans Kevin Johnson Jersey , however, only comes across as a wallflower because it takes a while for its charm to sneak up on you. Generally, we?re not fans of a spongy brake pedal and muffled steering feel, but both reflect the V70?s serene nature. Of course Texans Nick Martin Jersey , we would applaud a stopping distance shorter than 178 feet, grip greater than 0.83 g, or handling that would make us wish even more for a stability-control system that turned off completely. Sure, it doesn?t corner like a BMW Texans Will Fuller V Jersey , but it doesn?t seem like that?s what the V70 is going for, unlike the S80. If you?re looking for more sport in your wagon, you might find it in the Saab 9-5 SportCombi, Subaru Outback 2.5XT Texans J.J. Watt Jersey , or Volkswagen Passat 3.6 4MOTION. But only the Subaru is close on price?the VW and the Saab are nearly 40 grand?and none of those cars feels as solid and composed as the V70 going down the road. The quiet comfort that the V70 provides is the automotive equivalent of Grandma?s meatloaf. It makes you feel better after a long day.

    Highs: Good cargo space, comfortable seats, first-rate safety, child-friendly second row.
