I sat in front of the television last Thursday afternoon, aware of incipient pleasure conflicting with shock and sadness as I tried to come to terms with the devastating news. One after another the tributes were paraded through the Sky coverage and all of it was positive: reverential, warm and admiring.

The greatest heroes are still human at heart, and Nelson's passion for his mistress Emma Hamilton is one of the greatest love stories in history, as a newly-discovered letter proves, writes Nigel Kirk.A passionate letter from Lord Nelson on HMS Victory, sent only shortly before the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, vividly conveys both the great man's sense of longing for the love of his life, and his duty. That's quite some duty when we consider that the future of the nation and the peace of Europe...

NEW FAVORITE DINNER ALERT! Sorry to shout. It's just SO good. Winter food at it's finest! For a long time, carbonara was my home alone meal. My single girl meal, which just meant that I made it when Eddie was traveling or out for dinner without me. I figured he would NEVER go for carbonara because there isnt chicken or steak or another kind of meat aside from crumbled bacon. THEN. One day (or night), I had no idea what to make for dinner and was asking him for suggestions. This is usually a huge fail because if Eddie has just eaten, he can’t see to his next meal. His go-to answer is, “I just ate, I’m not hungry, so I dont know what I want.” (Even if 31 minutes later he is STARVING OMG THE WORLD IS ENDING.) That’s also one of the reasons that menu planning can be tough in our house because he prefers not to commit to five different kinds of meals in one day, but I can handle that.

We are expecting the early days of his presidency to be focused on the putting America first agenda, jobs and trade and the economy. Do you think his presidency is going to be focused on that, perhaps at the expense of some of the security aspects that previous presidents have looked at their relationships with other countries? There is one important thing that holds Donald Trump together with every other president.

Scenes are either framed as if they are based on a description, or are shot with so many cuts that they feel like flashes of short sentences. There are also a lot of closeups of MacDougal who shines even though he is standing alongside big stars such as Weaver – who surprised me with a passable English accent – as well as Neeson, Kebbell, and Jones. Whether you like the movie or not will hinge on how relatable the characters feel to you. For example, Conor can come off as a brat full of anger one minute and the next, as a child coping with sadness that is heavy beyond his years to bear. For fans of this children fantasy book-turned-movie, A Monster Calls hits all the familiar notes – like the same four-chord progression that makes up a pop song. As the credit rolls, I feel this would have been better left as a book for children and young adults to understand the realities of life through reading its story. Watch the trailer here :

"If the local authorities and agencies involved do not request, then we will not install the AES cameras," he said. In a separate development, Liow said the Transport Ministry was prepared to build a pedestrian walkway at Sultan Azlan Shah Airport (LTSAS) in Ipoh. He said he would work with the state government to resolve the problem faced by airport users whenever it rained, particularly passengers going to the aircrafts. "I have visited LTSAS and see two solutions - one is using bus service to take the passengers from the departure hall to the aircraft. "However, there is a problem with using the buses as there is very limited space in the airport," he said. Liow added that the ministry was looking at the second option of providing a pedestrian walkway from the departure hall to the aircrafts. "The ministry is prepared to build a pedestrian walkway and I think Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad (MAHB) will also not have a problem with this.

"We're still continuing to look at the evidence and details and will keep giving answers to the victims' families to resolve the issue. "The search vessel will arrive in Perth, Australia on Sunday ... The Australian transport minister and I will be there to look at the search data and at the same time, to thank the search team," he said. On Tuesday, the Malaysian, Australian and Chinese governments issued a joint communique to announce the suspension of the search for the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft after unsuccessfully scouring 120,000km² of the southern Indian Ocean. The disappearance of Flight MH370 has been touted as one of the world's greatest aviation mysteries after the jetliner carrying 239 passengers and crew members vanished from the radar while en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur on March 8, 2014. Its final flight path was believed to have ended in the southern Indian Ocean. — Bernama

Darrell Clarke's men continue to frustrate on a weekly basis. It seems to be one step forward and one step back for Bristol Rovers. Perhaps we expected too much after a faultless 5-0 thrashing of Northampton and it should be remembered that Fleetwood Town were a side in the top six prior to beating Rovers 3-1 at the weekend. It was still unexpected. I fancied Rovers to at least come back with a point and by all accounts they certainly performed well enough in general play to have deserved...
