That he hadn't seen one yet but he would like to. This might show it to him. And even if Donald Trump appoints the ninth justice to the court to replace Scalia, if this measure impresses Justice Kennedy, we might get change on that. I think that might be our best hope right now. Jeff: David Daley, I thank you so much for spending time with us. David: A real pleasure. I really appreciate it. Thank you.

What do you think about this. COBRA – I can not confirm the, this theory and I do not completely agree with this. (OK) RichardCobra, are density levels determined by frequencies or something else. COBRAThey are actually determined by the relation between spirit and matter and vibrational frequency of that relationship between spirit and matter determines which frequency or density or dimension we are speaking about. (got you) RichardAre vibrational frequencies measured in happiness, or how do you measure someones vibrational frequencies. COBRACurrent science is not yet ready to measure those but vibrational frequencies are defined by the amount of the interaction between spirit and matter in any particular area or whatever we are measuring. (thank you) LynnAre there the different dimensions the same as different densities. Could the dimensions be described like this: 3Dphysical, 4Detheric, 5DAstral or is there a better way of describing dimensions.

This echoes a lot of the words we heard in July when to Reza May one became Prime Minister and stood on the podium outside Downing Street and gave that speech. We believe in a union not just between the nations of the United Kingdom but between all of our citizens, every one of us.

Oddly enough, we dont know very much about how to change people’s minds on social issues, not scientifically. That's why the work of the a group of LGBT activists in Los Angeles is offering something valuable to psychology and political science a detailed map of uncharted scientific territory. Over the last eight years, and through more than 12,000 conversations, The Leadership LAB has developed a new kind of persuasion they call deep canvassing. Volunteer's go door-to-door, talking to strangers, and often change their attitudes about things like same-sex marriage and transgender rights. Unfortunately, the first scientist to measure the technique's effectiveness also committed scientific fraud by copy/pasting some data from another study and cutting corners in other ways, creating a wave of negative publicity that threatened the reputation of the people who created the technique, even though they were just the subjects of the study and not involved in the wrongdoing.

mp3"][/audio] But, I told Tancredo in a subsequent phone call, Coffman is much more hostile to immigrants than Carroll. Coffman opposed a 2013 bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill , which included a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and Coffman still stands against the measure . Coffman is opposed to birthright citizenship , which allows children of undocumented immigrants born on U.S. soil to be citizens. Coffman is also against a provision in the Voting Rights Act that requires some jurisdictions to provide dual-language ballots. I told Tancredo I couldn't see how he'd favor Morgan Carroll, who, for example, has attacked Coffman for opposing the bipartisan immigration bill , and she supports a path to citizenship. But didn't Carroll vote against the "Dream Act" in Colorado, Tancredo asked, reminding me that he'd referenced this on the radio, when he said, "Who knows, we may have something better [with Carroll].

Chris Christie as the poster child of Trump hangers on. But look too at stalwarts like Bob Dole and John Boehner. It's not what they ever once said about the New York developer that counts (carnival barker, joker, etc.). Tut-tut, it's their current thinking that matters -- interpretations that are fueled by evasive red herrings: Well, I'd rather vote for Donald Trump than ever have Hillary in the White House. Or the declarative and empty fiat: I'm now satisfied that Mister Trump can unite our party and, in fact, make America great again. Accountability to the public record be damned. DODGE BALL: In the middle are anxious politicos, some evading the question of where they stand, some playing for concessions. House Speaker Paul Ryan emulates both conditions are he stalls for time to measure his strength and leverage, or what's left of it. His plays have been smart combinations of pauses and trial balloons to test the waters and more fiats to reinforce his principled brand.

That ordinance would have allowed trans people in Charlotte to use the bathroom corresponding to their gender identity. The state bill nullified that Charlotte ordinance and required all state facilities to go further and explicitly require that bathrooms be segregated according to sex as assigned at birth. "It's either a common-sense measure, or rooted in ignorance, depending on whom you ask," Jeff Tiberii of WUNC reported for NPR's Morning Edition . The law has mobilized voters on both sides, Tiberii says — the conservative base as well as the law's opponents. "At least two corporations have decided not to expand here, well-known performers have canceled gigs, and even some elected officials have said this has damaged the state's economy and reputation," Tiberii says. "And there's no consensus on which party this benefits the most." The Rebuke From DOJ The Department of Justice said that the law violates the Civil Rights Act, by discriminating against state employees, and Title IX, by discriminating against students at state schools.

Weiss and other researchers spent over a decade just tinkering, trying to figure out how to do it. Eventually, they came up with a plan. The idea was to build a giant laser and place it between two-high precision mirrors set in an L-shape. Bouncing light off the mirrors, each of which which would be miles away, would provide a stunningly accurate measure of distance. On paper at least, it could detect the stretching and squishing of space by gravitational waves. But the giant lasers and long tunnels needed would be enormously expensive. Weiss and his colleagues went to the National Science Foundation for money. There were doubts, in part because other scientists recalled Weber's failed attempts decades earlier. But eventually, a panel of eminent scientists endorsed the project. "They said, 'Hey this is a great idea. You should do it. It's risky, but it's exactly what the country needs,' " Weiss recalls.

You get a sense that there is an ad-hoc approach to the running of state-owned companies. Cutting the cost of running government In 2013, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan announced similar cost-cutting measures. There was nothing substantive (that Zuma announced). For example, Zuma could have made an announcement about the size of government. South Africa has 75 ministers and deputy ministers. China has 32. You can get rid of deputy ministers and government will continue to function well because you have directors-generals (heads of departments). It was small-minded of Zuma to announce the potential move of parliament from Cape Town to Pretoria and say it was urgent (as a potential cost cutting measure). I don't think this is a decision that can be made in two to three years' time. It requires a lot of planning. Disruptions by the EFF In an ideal society what the Economic Freedom Fighters ( EFF ) did would be (regarded as) very disruptive, perhaps inappropriate.

Soon, very soon, Thursday, February 11, at 10:30 Eastern time, we are likely to learn at any one of several press conferences – at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. , in Hannover, Germany , near Pisa in Italy and elswhere – that gravitational waves have been measured directly, for the first time. This would mean the first direct detection of minute distortions of spacetime, travelling at the speed of light, first postulated by Albert Einstein almost exactly 100 years ago.Time to brush up on your gravitational wave basics: In Gravitational waves and how they distort space , we had a look at what gravitational waves do . In Gravitational wave detectors: How they work we saw how you can measure gravitational waves. Third and final step: What are typical gravitational wave sources? How are these waves produced? Objects in orbit The simplest situation that produces gravitational waves in the cosmos is almost ubiquitous: two or more objects orbiting around each other under their own gravity.

So while they may decline, the decline wont be as steep as it will be for general market securities, and the recovery will be quicker. History is on my side with regards to that observation. The truth is that in the very short term, the markets are voting machines, and it’s only in the long term that it’s a weighing machine. That means in the short term, the market measures people’s emotions. Over the long term, markets measure value. The natural resource markets are in a very deep cyclical bear market which means they’re already cheap. I dont believe the same can be said for the general market. So my suspicion is that value will win out in the case of a decline in resource equities that’s linked to a major market decline. But make no mistake—if we see a major liquidity squeeze and downside in the market similar to what we saw in 2008, initially the resource stocks will sell off with all the others because the sell decisions often arent made by the investors.

He just started a company to mine rare earth minerals on the Moon. But his real goal is extra-planetary colonization. Somehow we got around to the question of why have a company in the middle of that. He has billions. He can just go straight for the colonization part. He said, "Every idea has to be sustainable. Profitability is proof that an idea is sustainable." --- "You may think using Google's great, but I still think it's terrible." K. Anders Ericsson made famous the "10,000 hour rule" popularized later by Malcom Gladwell. The rule is: if you practice WITH INTENT for 10,000 hours then you will be world-class. He then wondered why typists would often reach a certain speed level and then never improve no matter how many hours. After doing research, its because they forgot the "With intent" part. They were satisfied with "good enough". You have to constantly come up with new metrics to measure yourself, to compete against yourself, to better the last plateau you reached.
