THE good news for Plymouth Raiders is that most of the UK's sporting population were spared their embarrassingly woeful performance and record-breaking defeat to BBL powerhouse Leicester Riders.The bad news for the city's BBL Trophy finalists is that they are back on 'air' via the BBC's website rather earlier than I suspect they would have wanted tomorrow night at the Plymouth Pavilions.Hopefully, Raiders will show up this time and vent their frustration at the expense of Bristol Flyers...

Yet even now, the number of congressional Republicans who have come forward to demand a proper, independent investigation by a special prosecutor is embarrassingly small . As a former presidential campaign manager, I know that the very essence of a campaign is its strategy, the ability to design a winning plan. A winning plan requires research, resources and personnel. Russias attacks on the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 election cycle compromised each of these elements. When I was asked last July to step in temporarily as D.N.C. Chair, I knew things were amiss. The D.N.C. had been hacked, and thousands of staff emails and documents were plastered on various websites. Staff were harassed, morale suffered, and we lost weeks of planning. Donors were harassed, and fundraising fell off. Then in October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.

Ask Us Anything!" One question came from user VStarffin , who said he was "not intending to mock or insult the hosts." "So this might sound confrontational, but I don't mean it to be. My basic question is–how did you deal with, and how are you dealing with, being so wrong about the 2016 election?" the user asked Vietor responded that their prediction that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election was not just wrong, but "really, really wrong." "I disagree. We weren't just wrong, we were really, REALLY fucking wrong. Like embarrassingly wrong," Vietor wrote. "And we are mad at ourselves for a number of reasons, namely because we focused on the bullshit and the horserace and the day-to-day outrages, and not on why this election was so important and the issues that really matter. So we're trying to fix that." Vietor continued to apologize to the listeners of the podcast and pleaded with viewers to stick around.

He had already dropped to 12 percent in the RCP national poll average, from 14 percent in July; by Christmas, he was at 9 percent. The crash continued throughout 2015, interrupted by only a fleeting bounce after his April 7 campaign launch. In late July, he was below 6 percent, and by October, one year after Time ’s cover, he hovered at just over 2 percent. “We did a survey in Iowa that fall, and in the survey, Republican caucus-goers were very much opposed to the policies that Senator Paul was waving the flag for: less spying, less drone strikes, less foreign intervention, closing of foreign bases,” recalls Vincent Harris, the campaign’s chief digital strategist. Embarrassingly, Paul’s numbers plunged so low that Fox Business excluded him from its main debate in January 2016, less than a month before Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses. (Paul boycotted the undercard debate.

There's the old adage in football that you're only as good as your last game. If that is true, then it would make Roy Hodgson not very good at all. As England boss, Hodgson, who is the bookies' favourite for the Leicester City job, led the country to one of the most humiliating defeats in their history as they were embarrassingly dumped out of Euro 2016 by minnows Iceland. The tiny nation, ranked 133rd in the world and with a population just 320,000, embarrassed England and Hodgson...

He didnt explain in much detail how those reforms would work, or whether they would also do something about those embarrassingly skimpy gowns patients have to wear in the hospital. The media takeaway was that Trump’s speech sounded optimistic, which was true compared to his dyspeptic inaugural address, and also true in the sense that infomercials promising baldness cures or eight-minute abs are optimistic. But there’s a fine line between optimism and magical realism. Politicians routinely deploy sunny rhetoric about “cures to illnesses that have always plagued us” and “American footprints on distant worlds,” but Trump was playing a high-risk game by promising just about everything to just about everyone—especially when he also declared that “above all else, we will keep our promises to the American people.” In the real world, policy choices have tradeoffs.

You heard it here first: hes totally bringing back the Sidekick. 5. Sony Ericsson W800i (2005) Another phone that wont instantly spring to mind until we add the vital word Walkman . Yep, the W800 was the first Walkman-branded phone, a valiant attempt by Sony Ericsson to keep the obsolete brand in the limelight. Our review at the time which rather embarrassingly began with the line Have camera phones already had their day? praised the large 1.8-inch LCD and generous 512MB card included, but noted that the tiny joystick is a bit fiddly. Nonetheless, its radiant orange and white colour scheme is not easily forgotten, and at the time its 2MP camera was one of the best around. In the intervening years, Sony (who broke up with Ericsson) has kept the focus on phone cameras, but less so on music phones.

E.B. Du Boisname on Twitter. DeVosHBCU statement quickly spread online, where it was calledtotally nuts ” by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), and “ embarrassingly ignorant ” by Donald Heller, the provost of the University of San Francisco. A spokesman for the Education Department said DeVoscomments were taken out of context because the statement does address the history of the schools. He said DeVos “certainly understands and respects” the founding of the schools in the face of racism and segregation. He said DeVos will address the history during a speech today at a Capitol Hill event focused on HBCUs. DeVosstatement says the schoolsstarted from the fact that there were too many students in America who did not have equal access to education. They saw that the system wasnt working, that there was an absence of opportunity, so they took it upon themselves to provide the solution.

With a host of famous faces lined up to appear, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly also re-introduced Stephen Mulhern. However, his big entrance to the show didn't go as well as they had planned. The original idea was to show Stephen being catapulted out of a cannon and through the back of the studio. But it didn't work as slow camera work meant that viewers at home saw Stephen sink lower into the cannon when they should have seen a quick spin with the sound effects making the ...

4sec. But the only saloon really capable of getting the drop on the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid away from the lights comes from the Tesla stable, perhaps most embarrassingly in the shape of the £121,835 PD100S which is claimed to hit 60mph from rest in 2.5sec in Ludicrous Mode which, indeed, is ludicrous. Once the Tesla’s launch advantage is used up, however, we have little doubt the Porsche is the quicker car – not just in a straight line but, more emphatically, on any fast, challenging road or circuit.

Spiked floats all around! Weve got embarrassingly easy (!!!) boozy little floats right here for Oscars night! Pair it with a crunchy snack and you are SET. Every year I want to host a big, fun Oscars party and every year… I dont do it. So I’m doing it virtually and begging you to make a prosecco sorbet cocktail on Sunday night with me. Waaahoo. Internet generation unite. Here’s a little secret: I dont love raspberry things. I dont love raspberry flavored things. I like fresh raspberries but they are not my number one choice in fruit. If I’m being REAL here, I mostly chose raspberry sorbet because the color is pink pink pink. HOWEVER. You witnessed my transformation years ago to being quite “meh” about lemon desserts and now I omgLOVE lemon desserts, so it’s very possible that might happen here. The lemon + raspberry sorbet combo is divine.

But! I did put a bit of espresso powder in the streusel here. I loooove the flavor that it adds. Especially with the orange. I have to tell you how much more I loved the orange flavor here when mixed with the streusel, as opposed to just plain orange cake. And I also have to tell you how I scraped the glaze that dripped off the cake and onto the board... off with a spatula. And put it on my own piece of cake. You're probably really reassessing your feelings for me at the moment. Embarrassingly enough, I still have onnnnne more recipe that uses blood orange to share with you this year. Because I’m a psycho and can’t stop. But this is the best! I swear. Until the next best comes along. aka, next week. When we eat all the chocolate things. After finishing all the cake things. Blood Orange Coffee Cake Yield: makes 1 (10 cup) bundt cake, serves 6 to 8 Total Time: 2 hours Ingredients: streusel 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces cake 3 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 tablespoons freshly grated orange zest 3 large eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 cups plain greek yogurt (full-fat or 2%) blood orange glaze ¼ cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4 cup powdered sugar Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

It remains as embarrassingly easy to park as ever, turns on a sixpence (or at least a 6m 95cm diameter sixpence in the case of the Smart Fortwo ED) and takes sharp, awkward backstreet corners in its short stumpy stride. It drives well, too. In Eco mode the car glides quietly around the city with serene confidence, soaking up all but the biggest of lumps and bumps with surprising composure. Your back and teeth wont thank you for driving directly at a speed bump at 30mph in either one of these vehicles, but as long as you’re careful, both Smart Fortwo ED and Forfour ED reward with a calm, unfussed commute. When you do finally manage to free yourself from the shackles of town traffic jams, disengaging Eco unleashes the (small furry) beast within. Although the Forfour is noticeably less eager to leap up the road, both cars are a hoot to drive along twisty country lanes.

Collectively, such belief systems contradict each other even though most claim to be the one true religion. Statistically, most would have to be fakes. It is more comforting to believe that we shall be reunited with loved ones in an afterlife than to accept that we shall never see them again. Such false beliefs are readily accepted even when they are propagated by convicted con men like Mormon leader Joseph Smith who used used embarrassingly faked texts. Gullibility may have been a valuable trait that helped people to fit in with the beliefs and practices of their in-groups throughout history. Unfortunately it makes for bad citizenship in a democracy where political leaders are supposed to follow the guidance of the electorate. That is why freedom of expression in general, and a skeptical press in particular, are so important and the invariant targets of authoritarian regimes.

. Oh, right, with this guy the question answers itself. He knows nothing about Yemen, like most geopolitical matters, and as someone who consistently dodged military service during the Vietnam War he strongly supported, he has no military experience. But Trump rolled the big raid out there anyway, like it was another one of his half-baked executive orders or provocative pronouncements. The result was a debacle, with a dead Navy SEAL, three more wounded, an expensive aircraft downed and dozens of civilians, including many children, killed when the elite operators embarrassingly had to call on heavy air attacks to make good their escape. We even had the spectacle of the government we are there to supposedly help, Yemen's rump state -- the rebels hold the capital now and much of the country, despite more than a year of Saudi and Gulf Arab attacks -- forbidding new US operations in Yemen.
