It should even be on some Best Movies Ever lists. One of the first movies to be made under the Netflix banner, Beasts of No Nation sees Idris Elba on fine form as a commandant fighting in a civil war. But the biggest praise has to go to Abraham Attah's Agu - a boy soldier caught in the fighting. Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga - who made the first season of True Detective the masterpiece it was - this is a harrowing but great watch. James Stewart is at his finest here in Alfred Hitchcock's ultimate suspense film. Named by the BFI's Sight & Sound magazine in 2012 as the greatest film ever made (and for good reason), it is the story of a police detective's obsession (Stewart) with a married woman (Kim Novak). Full of double meaning and double vision, it's a must for any suspense fan. Painfully ignored on its original release, Slow West is a brilliant western by former Beta Band member John Maclean.

A Couple of Examples: GMOs One of the best examples of political influence over scientific publication comes from an episode involving Genetically Modified Maize. Monsanto published a study a few years ago which purported to demonstrate the effects of GMO maize on rats over a 90 day period. They reported no ill effects on the rodents from this diet. Given the fact that there are no long term studies examining the health risks associated with GMOs, independent researchers then decided to conduct the same study, with one difference: Their study lasted over a year rather than a mere three months. Researchers found instances of severe liver and kidney damage, as well as hormonal disturbances, alongside the development of large tumours and mortality among the treatment groups . The study was published in November of 2012, in the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology, and then instantly retracted.

It has many more driversmillions of them, scattered all over the world, working as independent contractors, without the health care and other benefits typically provided to full-time employees. And the gig has gotten harder for longtime drivers. In 2012, Uber Black cost riders $4.90 per mile or $1.25 per minute in San Francisco, according to an old version of Uber's website. Today, Uber charges $3.75 per mile and $0.65 per minute. Black car drivers get paid less and their business faces far more competition from other Uber services. Kalanick has a reputation for being ferociously competitive and hard-charging. He's the guy who has bragged about having earned the second-highest rank on Nintendo's Wii tennis game. He's still dogged by the fact that he once referred to Uber as "Boob-er" because it improved his dating prospects. Current and former employees say he can be empathetic when the mood strikes—or tyrannical when it doesn't.

Tara Palmer Tomkinson's final song seems to predict her death [Wenn] Tara - who passed away last month - had been working on music for the last few years of her life and even tried to make a go of a singing career back in 2012. This final song is very different to the love ballad "5 Seconds" as it features an EDM backing track and it spookily seems to predict her death. "If you look up to the skies, yeah that's me, I'm just a cloud chilling out, floating by looking down on you," Tara ...

Michelle Obama has given few details about her time as first lady: Her only book is about food and gardening, American Grown, released in 2012. Both Obamas are widely popular with the public in the U.S. and abroad. Titles and release dates were not immediately available. The books will reflect on the Obamas' White House years, although Penguin Random House declined to give further details. A publishing official with knowledge of the negotiations said that Barack Obama's book will be a straightforward memoir about his presidency, while Michelle Obama plans to write an inspirational work for young people that will draw upon her life story. The official was not authorized to discuss the negotiations and asked not to be identified. Presidential memoirs have contributed little to the literary canon, a tradition many believe Barack Obama will change.

Honestly, I'd bet that the NUFORC being based in Seattle is the main reason we see so many more sightings in the States. A more thorough analysis might cross-reference sightings from other agencies, like MUFON . The geographic breakdown of annual UFO sightings (per 10 million people) in the US. Credit: sammonfort3 Canadians did not do much better, coming at second place after the United States with 1000 sightings per 10 million people. And according to a recent article by Allan Maki of The Globe and Mai l , its becoming more common with a record 1982 sightings reported in 2012. He also suggests that this could be due to a combination of growing interest in the subject and reduced stigma. Iceland, the UK, Australia, the Virgin Islands and Cyprus all ranked a distant third, with between 250 and 500 sightings per 100 million people per year.

Trump has been shaken by investigations into his campaign's possible ties to RUSa, his misstatements about his levels of support, and a federal court's halt to his executive order temporarily banning entry into the country for people from seven Muslim-majority nations. Clearwater, on the Gulf Coast, sits in Pinellas County in the heart of Florida, where the past four statewide elections have been decided by about 1 percentage point. Trump, a part-time Floridian, flipped the results from the last two presidential elections in Pinellas County in his favor after former President Barack Obama, a Democrat, carried the county in 2008 and 2012. The county has long been a retirement destination, especially among those leaving the Midwest. It is about 75% white, 11% black and 9% Latino, according to 2015 census data. Speaking just before the address, Ron Sanders, 65, a Baptist pastor living in nearby Seminole, Florida, wanted to hear Trump tackle illegal immigration, which the president did.
