Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are WWE's two biggest stars, even with Braun Strowman breathing down their necks as the promotion's next premier giant. And as Lesnar and Reigns seem to be on a collision course for a big-time main event to follow up their instant classic from WrestleMania 31, there are elements to love, and there is also room for improvement with WWE's dueling powerhouses. Brock Lesnar What's Right? Brock Lesnar as a Part-Time Universal Champion After spending much of WWE's winter season getting speared and jackhammered by Goldberg, Brock Lesnar has been rebuilt into the beast of old following a scintillating victory over his nemesis at WrestleMania 33. The match had all the drama and excitement that evaded their WrestleMania XX predecessor, which instead was replaced by New York rage. With Lesnar as world champion for the second time since returning in 2012, WWE has positioned itself to give the rub to the rising stars of its new era.

Today is St George's Day although you might be forgiven for not even noticing. It has to be one of the worst celebrated patron saints' days and always falls short of the colourful festivities in Wales, Scotland and Ireland for their respective saints. But what is it about good old St George the dragon slayer that turns people off? In historical terms, there's little to tie St George to England at all. If he even existed at all (and there is some doubt) he was a Roman soldier in the...

record is art as a Liberal MP. The problem he had as an individual. It is true, a lot of evangelical Christians and Roman Catholics, their religious faith as a certain approach for these problems and they are also public figures who have to represent constituencies which are much more diverse and I.

Will the company go with Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman as the last match on the card? Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman WWE's top guy was destroyed, and fans loved every second of it. Braun Strowman's attack on Roman Reigns did little to extinguish the hate fans have for The Big Dog. It could be that the best way to truly get Reigns over is a heel turn, but it's not apparent if the company would be willing to make the switch. So instead, WWE continues to throw the monster in Reigns' path. Strowman is over as a heel, and that's a good thing. He was booed against The Big Show, and he usually gets the same reaction when he works any other babyface on the roster. Strowman's connection as a top heel is stronger than ever, and that benefits everyone he works with. The fact that it doesn't do much for Reigns cannot be ignored, but there's also not much WWE can do about it.

He offered an ode to his former boss Richard Nixon in 2014 with The Greatest Comeback , an unappreciated tale of Tricky Dick’s political resurrection, and this May will release his 13th book, Nixon’s White House Wars , which is something of a sequel, offering a thorough and mouthwatering insider’s account of one of history’s most bellicose presidencies. “The first one had a happy ending,” Buchanan says. He shrugs his shoulders. “The second one, not so much.” The path Buchanan took to becoming one of Nixon’s key loyalists was unusual, to say the least. Raised in a middle-class Roman Catholic family of nine children in Washington—back when the District of Columbia was “a sleepy and segregated Southern city,” he once wroteBuchanan excelled in his parochial-school education and, despite an appetite for troublemaking and partying while he was a student at Gonzaga High School, he earned a scholarship to attend Georgetown University a few miles away.

The son of a Russian lawmaker was sentenced Friday by a U.S. federal court to 27 years in prison after being convicted of a cyber assault on thousands of U.S. businesses, marking the longest hacking-related sentence in the United States. Roman Seleznev, 32, was found guilty last year by a jury in Seattle of perpetrating a scheme that prosecutors said involved hacking into point-of-sale computers to steal credit card numbers and caused $169 million in losses to U.S. firms. The Russian government has maintained that his arrest in 2014 in the Maldives was illegal. It issued a statement Friday criticizing the sentence and said it believed Seleznev's lawyer planned to appeal. "We continue to believe that the arrest of the Russian citizen Roman Seleznev, who de facto was kidnapped on the territory of a third country, is unlawful," the Russian Embassy in Washington said in a post on its Facebook page.

Images of Seleznev with stacks of cash were found on his laptop, following his arrest in the Maldives in 2014. (credit: Department of Justice) Russian hacker Roman Seleznev was sentenced to 27 years in prison today. He was convicted of causing more than $169 million in damage by hacking into point-of-sale computers. Seleznev, aka "Track2," would hack into computers belonging to both small businesses and large financial institutions, according to prosecutors. He was arrested in the Maldives in 2014 with a laptop that had more than 1.7 million credit card numbers. After an August 2016 trial, Seleznev was convicted on 38 counts, including wire fraud, intentional damage to a protected computer, and aggravated identity theft. The sentence is quite close to the 30 years that the government asked for. Prosecutors said Seleznev deserved the harsh sentence because he was "a pioneer" who helped grow the market for stolen credit card data and because he "became one of the most revered point-of-sale hackers in the criminal underworld.

A Russian hacker was sentenced to 27 years in federal prison for stealing credit card numbers and selling the data online. Roman Seleznev, the son of a Russian lawmaker, received the longest sentence for hacking-related charges in the U.S. on Friday, the New York Times reports . Seleznev was convicted for running a credit card and identity theft business and selling data online, resulting in about $170 million in losses. He targeted about 3,700 financial institutions and 500 business across the world. Seleznev's father is Valery Seleznev, a member of Russia's parliament. Simply put, Roman Seleznev has harmed more victims and caused more financial loss than perhaps any other defendant that has appeared before the court, prosecutors said, according to the Times . This prosecution is unprecedented. Seleznev was arrested in 2014 in the Maldives.

And so the gems and gold were just sitting in piles on the dusty floor. It was amazing.” According to Rajan, the observers instructed temple employees to haul everything from Vault A upstairs, for inspection. It took fifteen men all day. Rajan said that beholding the treasure was a “divine moment.” There were countless gold rings, bangles, and lockets, many encrusted with gems. And there were gold chains, each studded with jewels and eighteen feet long—the length of the main idol. Rajan told me that coin experts estimated that the vault held approximately a hundred thousand gold coins, spanning centuries of trade: Roman, Napoleonic, Mughal, Dutch. He also described seeing a set of solid-gold body armor, known as an angi , built to adorn the main idol. The vault also contained loose diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and other precious stones. According to Balagovindan, the most impressive gems were the large diamonds, some of which were a hundred and ten carats—“the size of a large thumb,” as he put it.
