But those who risked their lives in covert operations such as the Special Branch officers who infiltrated enemy lines to gather intelligence were our greatest patriots. Sportsmen and sportswomen victorious in international competitions are our heroes, and deserve all the accolades. For our country to progress, we need to introduce incremental steps. What is the point of aiming to be among the top 20 countries by 2050 when current issues are not addressed? Can we enjoy the prosperity of the top 20 countries today in 33 years? Can we assume other countries will stagnate while we develop rapidly? If we are near the top ranking countries, it makes sense to compete with them. What we have are middle-income earners, including the majority of government servants, who are unable to earn enough for a comfortable living, while the poor continue to suffer.

Here's an extract from the interview... “I always feel like the structure of a story should reflect the content of the story. If the story, as in this case, is about a guy who is either schizophrenic or he has these abilities, i.e., he doesnt know what’s real and what’s not real, then the audience should have the same experience.” Hawley says he’s aiming for a “more existential exploration” and “surreal or dreamlike quality where it’s not just about running and kicking. There’s, whatever, 9,000 superhero stories right now. They’ve got all the running and kicking covered. I think my goal with this is to do something whimsical and imaginative and unexpected. Not just because I want to do something different, but because it feels like the right way to tell this story.” And here's a bit more... “What is it really like to hear voices or to be able to move things with your mind or to think you can move things with your mind, but you’ve been hospitalized and they’ve been talking you out of the idea that you can actually move things with your mind.

Towards end of 2016, their four largest markets were similarly consolidated under the centralised management of Group Chairmen: Chris Hirst for UK, Alfonso Rodés for Spain and Yannick Bolloré for France plus North America; with Jorge Percovich appointed as CEO Havas LATAM Group. Apparently for the past four years Havas had been pursuing a “Together Strategy”. ▶ Opening of 47 Havas villages have transformed the way this agency works and services clients. ▶ Now “this vision is being extended” with Havas aiming to “reinvent the industry by creating new standards, new offers and new services that blend the best of both worlds: relentless creativity and smart media accountability”. This clearly signals a return to the client-centriccomprehensive service offering” which was once provided by JWT, McCann, Ogilvy, Leo Burnett and other ad-agencies..

An analysis of the semen's quality and concentration, said Petrozza, is based on parameters for fertility established by the World Health Organization. He said the American Society for Reproductive Medicine has been in contact with the world body. “And I know that recently they've worked with the World Health Organization in trying to look at global infertility and trying to see how can we can bring treatment, how can we bring diagnostic tests to resource-limited countries. And this could be a potential way to do semen analysis in a very cost-effective way,” said Petrozza. Millions of couples struggle with fertility An estimated 45 million couples around the world struggle with fertility. Forty percent of the time, say experts, infertility is due to abnormal sperm. Petrozza and colleagues are aiming to get the male sperm analyzer on the market in the next 18 to 24 months, to be sold alongside pregnancy tests. He says they're hoping to keep the cost of the device to anywhere from $30 to $45.

The airdrops, which began on Tuesday, were the first US airdrops of Kurdish forces so far in Syria, and the deployment of US Marines with them points to the continued escalation of direct US military involvement on the ground by the Trump Administration. In recent weeks, the US has also deployed hundreds of other US Marines with howitzers into the area north of Raqqa, aiming to provide support for advances toward the city. While the Pentagon officially labeled the howitzer Marines advisers, there appears to be little doubt that they, along with the new airdropped troops, will be involved in combat in the course of this deployment.

They haven't made an offer to Republicans yet, and Democratic leaders wouldn't support one. Democrats familiar with the effort requested anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter that divides the caucus. Some liberals are aiming to block Gorsuch, while others are worried about the electoral prospects for 10 senators up for reelection next year in states won by Trump if they're seen as obstructing the president’s court pick. Any move to save the filibuster would be reminiscent of the “Gang of 14,” a group that included Democrats who agreed to confirm some of President George W. Bush’s stalled judicial nominees as Republicans pledged not to support a rules change. Just three members of that 2005 collection are still in the Senate. “It’s a really tough situation and they’re going to have to find their way through it because that 60-vote threshold is important for the Supreme Court,” said former Sen.

Charleston took a hit too, with waves topping its seawall, parts of the city flooded, and a lumberjack killed by a falling tree. All in all, damage from the storm’s second landfall was estimated at $23 million.” Ginger Strand The mission was declared a success for GE and the war department, and while initially, GE had attempted to deflect any blame for affecting the hurricane, a number of lawsuits were filed, aiming to hold GE accountable for the damage on the ground. “Cirrus was canceled, and lawsuits were threatened. Only the fact that a system in the 1906 season had taken a similar path, as well as evidence showing that the storm had already begun to turn when seeding began, ended the litigation.” [ Source ] The Age of Scientific Destruction Began Weather modification and cloud seeding began shortly after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, while the world was wondering if scientific advancement would seed the demise of the planet.

3 min 37 sec ago Price when reviewed 999 Acer has been attempting to raise its profile as a maker of prosumer and business-grade hardware in recent years, with a series of laptops aiming to take on higher-priced devices like the MacBook and XPS ranges. After reviewing Acer's surprisingly good Swift 3 notebook, we were expecting big things from the company's latest 2-in-1. The flagship of its convertible line, the Acer Spin 7 aims to cement Acer's position as a contender in the realms of high-end hybrids - but can it match its established rivals? Acer Spin 7 review: Design We were immediately taken with the Spin 7's design . With the lid closed, the all-metal chassis is only 11mm thick, and the clean lines and understated, minimalist aesthetic go together to create a striking-looking device. Sadly, our positive feelings quickly began to fade away once we actually started using it.

World Water Day , held every March 22, is taking place around the world on Wednesday, aiming at attracting attention to the water crisis with this year's theme: Waste Water. The day was originally launched in 1993 by the U.N. To coincide with the 2017 date, reports have been published warning of severe water scarcity in parts of Africa and Iran. As drought conditions are reported throughout East Africa, World Water Day feels more timely than ever. Here's five facts about water consumption around the world. Over 80% of all waste water is not used again Yes, it sounds a little strange, but recycling water, according to the U.N ., could partly help with shortages. The waste water instead goes back into ecosystems which it sometimes pollutes. With the correct treatment and technology, this waste water that flows away, could be recycled into new water.

Plastic is a problem. It's a problem that Scottish startup MacRebur is taking on one mile at a time. MacRebur is aiming to challenge three major world issues: Repurposing millions of tonnes of waste plastic, saving millions in the cost of road repairs and strengthening our existing roads. The idea for the startup was born when CEO and co-founder Toby McCartney - who happens to live on a road plagued by potholes himself (delete himself') - visited India and witnessed people melting down plastic they found on local landfill sites to repair potholes. While the method he witnessed on that trip wasn't particularly environmentally practical, McCartney left with the idea of using waste plastic to replace and reinforce the roads here in the UK and beyond.

U.S. forces patrol on the outskirts of the Syrian town, Manbij, a flashpoint between Turkish troops and allied Syrian fighters and U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters, in al-Asaliyah village, Aleppo province, Syria, March 7, 2017. (Arab 24 via AP) While the Pentagon provides plans for the Trump Administration for a major escalation of the US involvement in the war in Syria, new bipartisan legislation is being pushed in both the House and the Senate aiming to oppose the escalation and put legal obstacles in the way of it. Reps. Barbara Lee (D – CA) and Walter Jones (R – NC) are pushing one such bill, aiming to force Congress to debate US involvement in Syria, and to repeal the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) to prevent the administration from using it as an excuse for the operation. With the repeal of the AUMF, the bill would also explicitly forbid the deployment of additional US ground troops to Syria without any permission from Congress.
