It is widely acknowledged that dogs love to catch balls. In previous cases, if we were asked to bet on whether a dog could catch a ball, we would have bet "yes, that dog can catch the ball." That was before we saw this dog. This dog cannot catch the ball, nor even come close to catching the ball. To be frank, we see no room for this dog's ball-catching skills to improve. SEE ALSO: Skateboarding is much more fun from a dog's perspective Does this dog perhaps need glasses? But let's not get too cynical, friends. After all, this dog, while horribly, embarrassingly bad at sports, never gives up. And that means despite everything this is a good dog. Read more...

Unless you are Dimitri Alperovitch, there just aren't many people that buy this lie anymore . Just to make this point embarrassingly clear to Dima Alperovitch, in an interview with Voice of America, Alperovitch claims to get artillery figures for Ukrainian losses from International Institute for Strategic Studies(IISS), a London-based think tank. It turns out that the one thing Dimitri Alperovitch is really good at is lying. Alperovitch did 2 interviews with US propaganda papers RFE/RL and VOA (Voice of America) one day apart from each other. RFE/RL carried the Crowdstrike story just like Alperovitch laid it out. VOA on the other hand fact checked and agreed with the Ukrainian government and Ukrainian military that the Alperovitch story about Russia hacking Ukrainian artillery positions was a lie. According to Alperovitch The malware used to track Ukrainian artillery units was a variant of the kind used to hack into the U.

Assad released jihadist Zahran Alloush from jail June 2011part of effort to taint uprising https://t.co/kvIm2Ri25V pic.twitter.com/pSkSorCAg0Kenneth Roth (@KenRoth) December 30, 2015 The question for Mr. Roth then becomes, “Which conspiracy theory do you really believe? The first or the second? Do you believe either of them?” We certainly dont. Roth’s inconsistency is not atypical of Western Soros-backedhumanitarianorganizations or of the mainstream media. But how can anyone take Roth or Human Rights Watch seriously when he and his organization engage in such obvious pro-war propaganda. Even more so, how can either be taken seriously when their propaganda becomes so inconsistent and contradictory within a matter of days? Of course, this is not the first embarrassingly obvious fail for Human Rights Watch or for Ken Roth. On February 25, HRW posted a photo of a devastated civilian area in Syria with the taglineSyria dropped barrel bombs despite ban.

Through our time using the phone, we always found it to be reliable and able to handle almost any apps you throw at it, but it was notably slow with some programs. Intensive tasks took a little longer than youd hope for, but thats mostly the nature of using a cheaper phone. When you look at Geekbench scores the ZTE Axon 7 Mini doesnt come across very well though. The ZTE Axon 7 scored 5,393, while this phone scored 2,106. Thats embarrassingly low compared to the similarly priced Honor 6X , which scored 3,275, or even the lower priced Moto G4 which scored 3,104. If you need a phone thats capable of running the latest apps, the ZTE Axon 7 Mini will be OK. If you want a phone that will be able to load them as quickly as possible, this won't be the best choice. Battery life A 2,705mAh battery and fast-charging but no wireless option Pretty bad battery life that won't last you a full day Did well in our video test, but not well day-to-day Battery life on the ZTE Axon 7 Mini isnt up to scratch.

The latest development is that the alleged British spy, the former MI6 agent, who was apparently responsible for compiling much of this embarrassingly personal compromising dossier that links Donald Trump to Russia and other things has been named. There were previous restrictions on news organisations naming him. They have been lifted. His name is Christopher Steele and he now works as a private consultant in the UK.

Samsung embarrassingly stopped sales of its Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone after reports of them catching fire. We are joined by a technology consultant from IDC. Memory chips have offset concerns about the Galaxy Note 7, but you were expecting this? When you look at a lot of the headlines in the past couple of months it has always been about exploding batteries, doom for Samsung, that's not their only business.

Tesla had a particularly successful December, selling more than four times as many Model S and Model X cars than the previous month, but according to editor of Inside EVs Jay Cole, Tesla sales numbers were particularly high in December since many planned October and November deliveries were put off until December. Overall, though, Tesla was indeed the top U.S. EV seller in 2016 out of all the manufacturers, but General Motors, Nissan, Ford, BMW, and others did sell many thousands each of their (mostly less expensive) EV models. Notably, BMW is the first automaker with five different plug-in offers available in the United States. Despite their strong sales momentum, EVs still make up only about 1 percent of total U.S. auto sales, and there have been challenges bringing EVs into the mainstream. These include lack of public awareness about available tax credits, including the federal tax credit of up to $7,500 and the many state rebates of up to $3,000 ; the embarrassingly low availability and prominence of EVs on many dealership lots; almost non-existent EV advertising ; and a trend of poor salesperson training about EV models available.

Happy New Year, its tax fraud season again! This may not be what you want to hear this week, but it is entirely possible the Internal Revenue Service already has your tax return for 2016 . If this is news to you, and it turns out to be true in your case, youve been scammed. As a result, your refund could be sent to an identity thief in a few weeks, and its unlikely anything can stop that from happening. Unfortunately, tax refund frau d is a reality for a whole lot of Americans. It is caused by the tidal wave of useable data that has already been (or soon will be) stolen by hackers and flows from embarrassingly shoddy information security practices at the public and private enterprise level and among individual taxpayers. Before you throw in the towel, there are some things you can do to decrease your attackable surface when it comes to this form of identity theft.

But! Then I remembered that this weekend we have the Golden Globes which is my absolute favorite awards show, and I thought you might just need something to drink during it. Since pretty much every one you will be watching will be drinking their face off and having a ball. Maybe? That’s just my mild excuse. Tomorrow’s embarrassingly easy recipe will go right along with these margs! It’s a double doozy. Last year at this time, I made a Paloma (it’s so good! You must try!) with chili sugar and the flavor is unreal. Something about that tart and bitter with the sugar and spiceUGH. Freaking fantastic. I’ve been dreaming of it ever since, but I’ve also made a heck of a lot of drinks in the last 366 days with chili salt or chili sugar. Even my non-spicy loving palette is obsessed. P.S. I'm going to start bingeing on Gilmore Girls now. I've never watched it! See ya in a million years.

House leader Paul Ryan was baffled when a congressman son’s struck a dab pose. He’s clearly not listened to enough Skippa Da FlippaIt was a nightmare day for US House of Representatives speaker Paul Ryan. With almost 300 ceremonial swearings in of new congressmen to get through on Tuesday, the full reality of his chilly relationship with president-elect Donald Trump must have been weighing on him. More embarrassingly, he was shown to be ignorant of the works of Skippa Da Flippa , Migos, Bow Wow and OG Maco.

It means the phone doesnt sit flat when placed on a surface, but its a better choice than making the entire handset thicker. The corners of the phone are rounded off well and dont feel uncomfortable when you hold it. Its also worth noting the 3.5mm headphone jack at the top right of the handset. This is in a good position for when youre listening to music on the go and want to keep your phone upright in your pocket. Color-wise youve got three options on the Honor 6X. Theres a silver, a gold and a gray version. The differences between gray and silver are minimal though and the gold version isnt particularly eye-catching. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. For the purposes of this review we had the gold version of the 6X, and it never felt embarrassingly flashy like some gold or rose gold colors can on phones.

Policy aside, Barack Obama leaves a legacy of pure class, a tenure without rendering scandal, debilitating conflicts of interest, dangerous lapses of judgement or embarrassingly shameful conduct. All the more notable because of who follows him. I first heard Mark Shields, many years ago, observe that American voters continuously elect presidents who starkly contrast their predecessors. After the imperialism and corruption of Richard Nixon, everyman Gerald Ford cooked his own breakfast. But Ford had been a career politician for 25 years, so along came Carter, who had never met most of the Washington establishment, even some leaders of his own party. Carter comes to office intelligent, conscientious, carrying his own bags -- but he seems to change his mind a lot -- so in 1980 in comes Ronald Reagan, who hadn't changed his mind since 1964.

While at the KGB, Vladimir Putin's activities focused on infiltration, deception and influence, skills he has also used as Russian President in the Donbass region in Ukraine and Crimea. The pro-Trump activities were variations on a theme from his well-worn playbook. The Russians found it embarrassingly simple to recognize Trump as their perfect patsy. Anyone in desperate need of flattery and money is a pushover. Indeed, there is grave concern that Trump may owe Russia, or Russians in Putin's inner circle, a lot of money. Do not forget that in the middle of the campaign, Donald ("Uday") Trump, Jr., jetted off to Paris for a meeting with a high Russian official. What was that about? Trump is not only the beneficiary of a foreign power hacking, he encouraged it, and, as David Frum has pointed out, embellished it. Considering the powers of the presidency--lifetime appointments for judges, sending our men and women into war, repealing/creating executive orders, long-term appointments to commissions, pushing and signing legislation that negatively or positively impacts peoples' lives--what does our country do with an election that was tipped by a foreign power? The first order of business is to showcase and, yes, dramatize the illegitimacy.

United, again missing the injured Wayne Rooney, had two early corners that amounted to nothing but it was Middlesbrough who squandered the first glorious chance just three minutes in. Adama Traore broke through the middle and had both Stewart Downing and Alvaro Negredo free in acres of space close to the edge of the box but he opted to shoot and embarrassingly scuffed wide. United looked to attack repeatedly early on as Antonio Valencia and Anthony Martial threatened, but they could not really trouble Victor Valdes until the 14th minute when Pogba's stunning overhead kick hit the post from close range. Middlesbrough again showed their ability as Traore remained in heart of the action. - Rifled - He beat Daley Blind and delivered a fine cross that eventually landed at the feet of George Friend, whose drilled effort was well blocked by Marouane Fellaini.
