Look out for the expansive use of “terrorism” and “extremism.” Be alive to the fatal notions of “exception” and “emergency.” Be angry about the treacherous use of patriotic vocabulary. 5. Be calm when the unthinkable arrives. When the terrorist attack comes, remember that all authoritarians at all times either await or plan such events in order to consolidate power. Think of the Reichstag fire. The sudden disaster that requires the end of the balance of power, the end of opposition parties, and so on, is the oldest trick in the Hitlerian book. Dont fall for it. 6. Be kind to our language. Avoid pronouncing the phrases everyone else does. Think up your own way of speaking, even if only to convey that thing you think everyone is saying. (Dont use the internet before bed. Charge your gadgets away from your bedroom, and read.) What to read? Perhaps “The Power of the Powerless” by Václav Havel, 1984 by George Orwell, The Captive Mind by Czesław Milosz, The Rebel by Albert Camus, The Origins of Totalitarianism by Hannah Arendt, or Nothing is True and Everything is Possible by Peter Pomerantsev.

We love you Miguel. We always will. In his younger years, Ferrer was initially drawn to music, accompanying his mother and Bing Crosby on tour, as well as playing the drums for Keith Moons Two Sides of the Moon. But film and television would prove to be his true calling. Ferrer starred in a variety of television projects and movies throughout his 37-year career like Magnum, P.I., CHiPS and Cagney & Lacey, as well as films like the 1987 sci-fi hit Robocop, Heartbreaker, and Star Trek: III: The Search for Spock. He is perhaps best remembered for playing Dr. Garret Macy on Crossing Jordan and FBI agent Albert Rosenfield on Twin Peaks. Ferrer will appear in David Lynchs revival of the beloved series, which premieres May 21 on Showtime .

We think that we can do better. The rate is beginning to fall a little bit, but we have a particular problem with men under the age of 50, for whom that is now the biggest cause of death. Michael and if it are very much tied to get people to speak about it, they will be back in Nottingham in March where they have a big event at the Albert Hall plant paid millions of dollars in bribes to its employees and government officials to win contracts.

(Credit: ColsonCenter.org Screengrab) Recently, The Colson Center created a statement entitled Preserve Freedom, Reject Coercion in which they ostensibly call on the federal government to ensure "religious freedom" and oppose "coercion or censorship of fellow citizens who have different views." It is signed by many of the sorts of straight white guys people whose signatures you would expect to find at the bottom of such a document, including Franklin Graham, Albert Mohler, John MacArthur, and Eric Metaxes among many others. It's a document full of lots of lovely sounding euphemisms about faith and freedom, but to anyone paying even the slightest bit of attention, it's clear those statements are just that: euphemisms. This isn't a call for religious freedom. We already have that in the United States and have ever since the Constitution was ratified in 1788.

Inside, it offers high levels of comfort and an absolutely striking design with technology that rivals that of high-end models way outside the Stingers expected price range. Those two engines I just mentioned, well there’s already word of a diesel powertrain being available for European customers. And, while it hasnt been officially planned or confirmed, interviews with Albert Beirmann – the Executive VP of Vehicle Testing and High-Performance Development for Kia – has said that there have been talks of electrification, a move that could pit the Stinger against the likes of the Tesla Model 3 or even the Model S, depending on how much electric muscle Kia can come up with. Beyond that, the Stinger is said to be able to handle much more power than that offered by that Biturbo 3.3-liter, so an even brighter future could be on the horizon for Kia’s new halo car.

Power comes from the group’s 3.3-litre, twin-turbo V6 petrol engine, with bespoke intake and exhaust systems plus specific calibration to improve response, power and delivery. Peak power is 365bhp, with 376lb ft of torque available from just 1300rpm. The 0-62mph time is 5.1 seconds, which is Kia’s best to date by a clear margin, but in a world of sub-four second hot hatches it’s brisk rather than blistering. At more than 1900kg the Stinger GT is certainly no flyweight. Albert Biermann, former head of BMW ’s M division and now Kia’s engineering chief, oversaw development of the Stinger GT. ‘The brief was to make a sporty car,’ he says, ‘but it still needed to have good long distance comfort. It could not be a harsh car. The Stinger is about precision, response and feedback, but still the isolation levels are high.’ The only transmission option is an eight-speed automatic, which Biermann claims offers better shift speeds than the similar ZF unit that’s used by the likes of BMW, Audi and Bentley .

Just like Albert Einstein had compared life to riding a bicycle. He had said that you need to keep moving in order not to lose your balance. So that's exactly what I did. 2016 was a successful year in terms of continuing to achieve lasting change in poor countries, cities, and neighborhoods with the international team of Thought 4 Action (T4A). This personal mark of our methodology in fighting poverty and building a robust middle class, maintains the magic and the purpose to continue! At T4A, we are proud to keep the movement alive and make the inspiration of change a reality for millions of people in the appropriate ecosystems. Through all my travels, I was able to break new ground in the political entrepreneurship and changemaking movement. During my stay in the US, I worked with the T4A team to develop executive courses on "Leadership for Growth and Change" tailored for public and private sector thought and action leaders with the audacity to dream and the tenacity to deliver.
