“We will verify every single name in the register against third-party data… and it's important to emphasize the need for comparison against the register of national births and deaths for the purposes of ensuring any perceptions or misconceptions around the potential for underage voters being in the register or the potential of deceased voters being in the register is addressed," said Kasimu. But some government records may be incomplete or out of date, says Peter Nyakwara of the National Council for Population and Development. The last census was done in 2009. “The problem we are having in Africa and Kenya included, we have not invested in vital statistics, registration of deaths and births which should be continuous on a daily basis, so that we can have, at any minute you are able to know how many people have died today, how many have survived so that every month, every year we are able to know this is where the population is moving to," said Nyakwara.

"Asked Monday if the president's tax plan would be revenue-neutral, meaning it wouldn't add to the debt, Mr. Mnuchin told reporters that it would pay for itself with economic growth,'" the Journal reported. "By that, he meant that the administration expects to be able to project faster growth due to tax cuts, which would in turn increase revenue and avert the risk of bigger budget deficits." Tomorrow's announcement likely will focus on broad tax reform principles such as changes to individual tax rates. "Mr. Trump has said he wants to reduce the number of brackets for individual payers and to deliver tax cuts to the middle class," the article said. "So far, Mr. Trump is sticking with core elements of his campaign tax plan, showing no signs of molding political promises to legislative dynamics in Congress or any significant fiscal constraints."

Nadella, long known as a champion for the democratization of artificial intelligence (AI), said it would be a key component to Dynamics: "I want to be able to democratize AI so that any customer using these products is able to, in fact, take their own data and load it into AI for themselves." Microsoft's "third cloud" is Nadella's term for Dynamics which caters to the fields such as sales and finance. With Office 365 (work productivity and flow, email, etc.) and Azure (computing and databases) as the first two clouds, Nadella all Microsoft products utilizing a common set of business data that can be mined for new insights with artificial intelligence "I think that's the only way to long-term change this game, because if all we did was replace somebody else's (sales), or (finance) application, that's of no value, quite frankly," he told Reuters.

Far away in New York, Liat and Hilmi, an artist and a student, discover their affinities and their shared fate. Theirs is a complicated love story. But it is suffused with our responsibility to see the other, to be able to recognize ourselves in them. Above all, it rests on the hope that whether we want to or not, whether we shut our eyes or plug our ears, whether we drag our feet or stomp our legs, we will sooner or later admit that we us and them sail on the same boat.

Programs are highly flexible and you can choose a study schedule and timetable to suit you. Tip #2. Network More Often, who you know is just as important as what you know when it comes to gaining a promotion at work and developing your career. Attending business events held by your company and other professional networking events is a great way to get yourself out there and make your name known. If the people with the power to promote you dont really know you, you’ll need to work even harder to get noticed. Tip #3. Find an Internal Mentor Today, many bosses are much happier to be able to promote from within, since it’s cheaper for the company and improves employee turnover. So, it’s not uncommon for workers who want to develop their career to find an internal mentor. A good way to do this is to lay out your career goals and show them to your boss; you can have a chat to see whether there’s anything that he/she can do to help you achieve them.

The huge bubble formed by the sun's magnetic influence may be shaped much more like a basketball than a comet, new measurements show. The solar windmagnetic solar material that constantly flows out from the sunfills the inner solar system, reaching far past the orbit of Neptune. The wind creates a bubble, some 23 billion miles across, called the heliosphere. The entire solar system, including the heliosphere, moves through interstellar space. Until now, scientists have thought the heliosphere was comet-shaped structure, with a rounded head in the direction of travel and an extended tail trailing behind. We never thought that we would see what we're seeing and be able to image the boundaries of the heliosphere. But new data covering an 11-year solar activity cycle suggests instead that it may be much more compact and rounded on both ends.

When it comes to music and visual arts, American teenagers could use some help. The National Center for Education Statistics reported Tuesday that in 2016, American eighth graders scored an average 147 in music and 149 in visual arts on a scale of 300. Some 8,800 eighth graders from public and private schools across the country took part in the test, which was part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress, often called the Nation's Report Card. Acting Commissioner Peggy Carr said the test shows students have a lot to learn in art and music and that no progress has been made since the same test was administered in 2008. "When I saw the results, clearly there is room for improvement, because clearly there is a lot of content that students weren't able to interact with correctly," Carr told The Associated Press. When asked to listen to George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," only about half of the students were able to identify that the opening solo is played on a clarinet.
