The focus is on the Trump circus, as Twitter theatrics take the sting out of what really is a dark, twisted nihilistic force pulling the levers of power in the Oval Office But instead the focus is on the Trump circus, as Twitter theatrics take the sting out of what really is a dark, twisted nihilistic force pulling the levers of power in the Oval Office. “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist,” said Roger Verbal Kint, aka Keyser Soze, at the end of The Usual Suspect s. In the coming months, the checks and balances of American democracy are going to be tested like never before – and will need to react quickly in the current climate. As Bannon told the New York Times about the first few weeks of the Trump administration: “We are moving big and we are moving fast… we didnt come here to do small things.

Through going with Bob to these races, I was introduced to Jim Clark, Phil Hill, Graham Hill, Bob Bondurant, and Steve McQueen. Through him, I was able to meet all these people; I didn't buy a Lotus because it was a cool thing to do at the time, I did it because I had an association with Bob Challman and his Lotus. I think a lot of why I kept the car is because it just reminds me of this relationship. It's part of my history. It's part of what I grew up doing. Bob Challman was almost like a second father to me for a number of years. He even tried to help me get into the Air Force Academy, but I ended up joining the Army. And so when I got back from my time in Vietnam, I wanted to buy an Elan from Bob, and this one was the only one he had on the lot. It was originally a banana yellow color; not my first choice, but like I said it was that or nothing.

At the time Bovis conceded that some customers were "offered an incentive to complete before the year end" but insisted that all of the homes were "habitable", says The Guardian . Today Bovis's interim chief executive, Earl Sibley, who stood in after David Richie stood down last month, apologised to customers and launched a plan to improve the company's battered reputation. He announced an "end-to-end review" of the company’s whole production process and a "customer service task force" to urgently fix faulty homes, says the Guardian. The £7m fund will be used to repay customers who have already paid for remedial work, cover any outstanding work, and offer compensation over and above the cost of repairs for those who were worst affected. Sibley also said he would set up a panel and roll out staff training on customer service – and seek to improve relationships with contractors, says the FT.

The commission's findings build on a report released last year by a bipartisan task force created by Snyder that determined the crisis was a case of environmental injustice. This week, Snyder announced the members of a new Environmental Justice Work Group aimed at improving state guidelines and policy regarding environmental and health hazards. Snyder spokeswoman Anna Heaton said the governor takes the reporting of each of these panels very seriously, and appreciates the public input that was shared. The commission recommends replacing or amending the state's emergency manager law to analyze the root causes of a community's financial problems and allow for more local representation and oversight. The bipartisan task force and others also recommended changes to the law in the wake of the water crisis, but none has been made.

Changes to the rules on car tax will come into force in a few weeks, and could change what you have to pay every year to keep your vehicle on the road. For new car owners, the rules which kick in on April 1, 2017, will mean seven out of 10 pay more thanks to the revised Vehicle Excise Duty tax bands. In fact, some of the most popular cars, once considered the height of 'eco-friendly' will now cost their owners an extra more than £900 over five years. Here's what we know about the...

(Phys.org)—When three physicists first discovered through their calculations that a decaying atom moving through the vacuum experiences a friction-like force, they were highly suspicious. The results seemed to go against the laws of physics: The vacuum, by definition, is completely empty space and does not exert friction on objects within it. Further, if true, the results would contradict the principle of relativity, since they would imply that observers in two different reference frames would see the atom moving at different speeds (most observers would see the atom slow down due to friction, but an observer moving with the atom would not).

Witnesses said the rioting broke out after Cairo fans unfurled banners insulting the local team, which had won the match 3-1. Since then Egypt has curbed the number of people allowed to attend matches and supporters have often tried to storm stadiums they are banned from entering. In February 2015, at least 22 people were killed outside an stadium when security forces barred fans from entering. Most of the casualties suffocated when the crowd stampeded after police used teargas to clear the fans trying to force their way into a league match between two Cairo clubs, Zamalek and Enppi, doctors and witnesses said. Fan clubs known as "Ultras" were outlawed in May 2015. Relations between the Ultras and security forces have been tense for four years after the fans played a key role in the 18 days of street protests that toppled autocrat Hosni Mubarak.

Till now we keep trying to ask rebels to leave, but have not succeeded because of Al-Nusra [Front], Jabhat al-Islamiyya and Hamas.” Hamas, I ask? “Yes,” he says. “Hamas, Hamas, Hamas, Hamas.” That may be self-serving. The dominant Fatah faction that controls the PA has been trying to undermine Hamas for years. “The rebels,” Abdul-Hadi continues, “keep preventing (food aid) operations and they use hunger as a way to keep the Syrian government under pressure.” In the first few months of the year, “all [Palestinian] groups sent 12,000 food baskets and evacuated 4,000 Palestinians. And each few days, rebels make a fight to interrupt and stop this operation.” Abdul-Hadi explains the politics behind these actions. “Rebels killed some PLA officers to force Palestinians to help the Syrian revolution – to intimidate them. And they blamed the Syrian army.
