We’ve been going through things and trying to figure out the best way to handle this but the bottom line is the comments on the video are not defensible and I think most people [agree] with that.” It’s not clear what Yiannopoulos' future with Breitbart will look like. While Marlow condemned Yiannopoulos' comments about pedophilia, he also defended him, saying Yiannopoulos is the victim of a coordinated attack, that the left has done much worse, and that Yiannopoulos has a personal history that people must take into context. Internally at Breitbart tensions are high. The site, which became a champion of President Donald Trump during the campaign, now has its former chairman Stephen Bannon as President Trump's chief strategist in the White House. Some Breitbart staffers, speaking on the condition of anonymity, say they are incredulous at the site’s silence to its own employees about how they’re handling the Milo situation.

Citroen had recently purchased financially-troubled Maserati, and went about exercising their engine expertise not long afterward. The SM was the successful product of this union between France and Italy, receiving the innovative hydropneumatic system first introduced in the DS, as well as a V6 motor engineered and built by Maserati. At the time of its release, the SM was the fastest front-wheel-drive car in the world. And to maintain the adequate amount of steering feedback necessary to drive at high speeds for long periods of time, Citroen equipped SMs with an early form of variable power steering; at low speeds the wheel would turn lock-to-lock with much less resistance than it would traveling along the road, making it as easy to park as it was to accurately control at highway speed. The cutting-edge styling of the SM really started to embody that adjective; hard lines and distinct angles make up the unique look of the car, which at once harkens back to the DS in the way the car sort of launches up and out from the rearmost corners, and yet carves out its own presence too, never to be considered an update or a “re-imagining.

Public finances are still in debt and the government is still borrowing £60 billion a year. It has to take a lot of money to service about that. I don't expect too much larger as when they get the budget, though that might be some tweaking around the two big issues, business rates, which we have been reporting on, and the NHS, which would have been reporting on all day. A little bit of tweaking but nothing they could get.

First and foremost, the aid comes to international NGOs and UN agencies, it does not come through the Government, so it is up to us to deliver it, the much-needed, life-saving aid, two areas of greatest need.

83-billion all-cash deal last July and all appeared rosy for the tech titan who had been trying for months to spin off of its core Web business — which includes search, mail and messenger. The deal pleased Yahoo shareholders who were unhappy with Yahoo's slow turnaround process under CEO Marissa Mayer. When Yahoo admitted in September to a 2014 data breach impacting 500 million user accounts , its deal with Verizon appeared to be shaky. Then, in December, when Yahoo admitted to a hack in 2013, this time affecting one billion accounts , the deal appeared to be in genuine peril. While it is uncertain how much rumor mongering played a role in media reports of the deal being scrapped, it is safe to say that Mayer must be breathing a sigh of relief that the transaction is back on track. We continue to be very excited to join forces with Verizon and AOL, Mayer said.

Tuesday's report comes a week after Yahoo sent a new round of notifications warning users that their accounts may have been breached as recently as last year . The disclosure caused concerns, because previously all the hacks were believed to have taken place in 2013 and 2014. The much more recent compromises were carried out by forging the browser cookies Yahoo servers set after a user logs in to an account. Once a computer has the authentication cookie, it no longer requires a users enter a password to access the account. Yahoo first disclosed the cookie attack in October , but didn't say how recently it had occurred. Read 2 remaining paragraphs | Comments

Elon Musk believes artificial intelligence that is much smarter than the smartest human on Earth could result in dangerous situations. Musk argues that the government must introduce a universal basic income program in order to compensate for automation. By Dom Galeon Recently, Elon Musk had the chance to share his thoughts on universal basic income (UBI) at the World Government Summit in Dubai. At the Summit, Musk had the opportunity to talk about the future, and the challenges the world will face in the next hundred years – including artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and the job displacement expected to come with it. When asked about the challenges civilization is set to face in the near future, Musk began by noting the threat of artificial intelligences that surpass humanity. He stated, “deep artificial intelligence, or artificial general intelligence, where you can have artificial intelligence that is much smarter than the smartest human on Earth, this is a dangerous situation.

Well, honestly, [Michael Mayer's] STM8 Arduino (called Sduino ) isn't actually much to do with the Arduino, except in spirit. The STM8 is an 8-bit processor. It is dirt cheap and has some special motor control features that are handy. There's a significant library available for it. However, it can be a pain to use the library and set up the build. Just like how the Arduino IDE provides libraries and a build system for gcc, Sduino provides similar libraries and a build system for the sdcc compiler that can target the STM8. However, if you are expecting the Arduino's GUI or a complete knock off of the Arduino library, you won't get that. That being said, you do get a lot of compatible libraries. The command line Makefile is simple to set up and use. Why not use a normal Arduino? The STM8 is not only inexpensive, but you can make use of the specialized hardware for things like quadrature decoding.

The DHS memos specifically point out that President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program remains in place. The program, launched in 2012, allows undocumented immigrants brought to the country at a young age to live and work in the U.S. Still, DACA enrollees could be swept up in Trump’s greatly broadened priorities for deportation. An undocumented immigrant deemed “a risk to public safety” in the eyes of a federal immigration officer could be subject to removal, as could someone charged with a crime, but not convicted. The memos say the president is directing all agencies to discern how much funding Mexico gets from the United States, in an apparent bid to force the country to pay for the wall. And they give some specifics on a new border wall that the president has promised in an executive order. As noted above, initial construction of new infrastructure will focus on locations near El Paso, Texas, El Centro, California, and in Southern Arizona, the memo says.

Today marked exactly hundred years after over 600 South African soldiers perished in the English Channel during the First World War that started in 1914. The commemoration coincides with the annual Armed Forces Day, over which Commander in Chief President Jacob Zuma presided in KwaZulu-Natal. "Be quite and calm my countrymen, for what is taking place is exactly what you came to do. You are going to die...But that is what you came to do, Brothers we are drilling the death drill'. These are some of the words of encouragement from a fellow compatriot Williams Wauchope, when their ultimate fate became inevitable. But how much do South Africans know about their history?

Real Madrid 's transfers over the past few seasons have been generally impressive, with the likes of Alvaro Morata, Mateo Kovacic and Toni Kroos all proving excellent additions to the squad or even the starting XI. Like every side in world football, however, there are on occasion signings made which promise muchyet deliver absolutely nothing positive or close to it. No club wants to see money squandered, and no fans want to see their players fail, but sometimes it simply doesn't work out as expected. Taking into account transfers all the way back to 1995, we've compiled an XI of Real Madrid signings whose performances and time at the club was way below the expected return; financial investment is a factor in deciding which players get picked, but it's not the only factor. Previous career history, the excitement or expectation around a player and the role they were expected to fillperhaps even did begin to fillis all accounted for too.

Honda says the new CR-V has class-leading second-row legroom, to boot. The CR-V’s Cargo room offers an impressive 75.8 cubic feet of room with the second row bench seat folded flat. That’s far more than the Ford Escape (67.8 cubic feet) and just a touch bigger than the Toyota RAV4’ s (73.4 cubic feet). Despite this, the CR-V’s footprint isnt much bigger than its competition. Honda undoubtedly needs the CR-V to success. It can’t have a repeat of the 2011 Civic and its sudden redesign for 2012. I wholeheartedly think Honda wont have that issue, but feel free to leave your thoughts on the new CR-V in the comments below. Continue reading for the full driven review.

The researchers were surprised to find a big difference in efficiency, with the most active foragers making 40 times the number of trips each day as the least active workers. Interestingly, when we studied the morphology between very active foragers and workers that barely leave the hive, we found that bees with more sensitive antennae foraged more, Russell says. Foraging trips Similar variation has been in observed in honey bees and other eusocial species, where some workers are much more active than others, but no one had seen it to this extreme due to the limits of human observations. If you watch a bee only for an hour or so, you can't say what it will do over the course of a few days or over its whole life, Russell says. We don't yet know why, but it could be that workers that forage less do so because they aren't quite as skilled at foraging as others and make themselves useful by doing more around the hive.

Jews in Israel and beyond had to confess to Palestinians that wrong and create a pathway for a just and shared future for Jews and Palestinians. I thought my proposals, for our confession, sharing Jerusalem and reparations for the Palestinian people, were obvious. They weren't. My book launch in Jerusalem turned out to be quite controversial, as were my subsequent lecture tours in America. Most of the controversy, and the threats of violence that came with my speaking appearances, was sparked and sometimes enabled by individual Jews and Jewish institutions. As important, the incitement I experienced was perpetrated as much by progressive Jews than conservative Jews. As I came to learn, most Jewish progressive Jews were liberal in all things, except Palestine. During the Intifada years, there were bomb threats against me whenever I lectured at universities.

How do you balance going for laughs in the room with jokes that will play well at home? Kroll: The only thing we can do is try to have as much fun as possible and hope that translates in the room, so people at home will feel like theyre watching a bunch of people together in a room having fun. Everything is FOMO, so we want to make people at home and feel like they have to go spend the next 15 years making indie moviesso that they can one day be there to see us lip sync to dogs.

It's powered by three microphones in each bud, which pick up nearby sound and process it at lightning-fast speed before passing it along into your ears. It has the potential to give people mastery of their personal soundscapes, letting us turn down the volume of honking car horns, airplane engines or, yes, the can't-hear-yourself-think cacophony of a crowded bar. Doppler also wants users to be able to control how much outside noise they hear along with their music a roadside jogger, for instance, might want to hear some traffic noise for safety's sake. There's a health angle to be considered as well: Prolonged exposure to high-decibel sounds can result in hearing problems down the road. (That said, the Here Ones aren't designed to help with hearing loss the way hearing aids do.) Doppler, which previously made fancy earplugs for concert-goers, is getting much closer to its true vision with the Here One.
