It is another big weekend in the battle to avoid relegation from the Championship. Nottingham Forest picked up a much-needed victory to boost their fears last weekend, beating Reading 3-2, and will be hoping to make it two wins in a row at QPR. Derby County's fierce rivals can go above Rangers with a win and all but secure safety with one match to play. Forest manager Mark Warburton knows their task is a clear one against a QPR side who have lost six straight games. It could be a...

"The wealthy working people have earned their right to live in the city. They went out, got an education, work hard, and earned it. I shouldn't have to worry about being accosted. I shouldn't have to see the pain, struggle, and despair of homeless people to and from my way to work every day. I want my parents when they visit to have a great experience, and enjoy this special place." Maybe he didn't mean to convey feelings of contempt and condescension. But, his words were still hurtful and disrespectful. He had a point. No one wants to live in a neighborhood filled with homeless people. Homeless people don't want to live the way they do. We're human, it's normal to dislike these things. Those who can avoid it, do so. Those who can't, endure it. The general thrust of his argument is this: He doesn't want to deal with the problems that homeless people bring.

to avoid the vote against the Conservatives being split. the Labour leader has been out campaigning in Harlow and has been talking about housing. Labour have pledged to build a million homes over five years, half of which would be council houses. This is a key issue. We are not building the houses we should in this country. We're building less than at any time since the 1920s

The coziness of a small space — or the closed-in, cramped feeling of one — isn't always due to how few square feet it is. What you fill a small room with matters, for sure. But another vital element is the color you coat the room in. Conventional wisdom has always advised to use lighter colors to make walls recede (and a room feel larger) and to avoid darker hues (which might make the walls feel like they're closing in), but that's just not always the case. Sometimes a dark color can make a room feel even cozier. From deep, dramatic shades, to warm colors versus cool colors, see how a rainbow of hues changes the way this small bedroom looks and feels.

So to create that openness, you need toavoid the common trap of thinking about how youll respond once somebody else is done talking. Listening is just as much a skill as argumentation, but its often harder to teach. One simple way to let others know that theyre being heard is simply to repeat back or paraphrase something youve just heard them say, then ask for clarification. This way you can delve deeper into what theyre expressing, instead of just bluntly countering their perspective with your own. Related: 5 Ways To Improve Your Listening Skills 3. You Did Half The Talking If youre trying to be persuasive, youve got to make the otherperson feel theyre in control of the situation, not you. Its often said of the best listeners that they talk a lot less than other people and thats true of the most persuasive people as well.

The charging ports at the back, so you can play during the few hours the Nimbus takes to charge. When its not plugged in, you get up to 40 hours of play time, although we found this was only guaranteed if the unit was turned off when not in use. Performance Past MFi controllers have all disappointed in key areas, but the Nimbus comes tantalisingly close to a perfect score. The analogue sticks are superb, and the face buttons are responsive. The triggers a major shortcoming in SteelSeriess previous MFi controller are great, enabling you to rest your fingers on them without accidentally activating one. Only the D-pad feels a bit off. Its quite large, making quick movements tricky, and accessing diagonals a problem. When possible, youll mostly avoid the D-pad in favour of an analogue stick.

One face claims to be “the only Democracy in the Middle East” while the other face engages in an agenda embracing a genocidal occupation that spans across three generations of Palestinian children born in captivity. This is the face of Zionism with its dream of a Jewish State for Jews only, “Palestinians not allowed.” There is an alter ego where truth breaks through all forms of denial. A painful truth that many are still unable to accept as a viable reality. It is the agenda of Israeli Zionism that inflicts the horrors of disenfranchisement and genocide onto an entire population of Palestinians, unwanted, hated and consideredinferior.” It is impossible for this German Jew to avoid a comparison between Israeli Zionistsunwillingness to embrace the humanity of Palestinians as human beings like themselves with aspects of the Nazi quest for a racially-pure Germany.

The Russian government has called on Israel and other countries to avoid any actions that may escalate tension in Syria, after Israel conducted airstrikes Thursday against an arms supply hub near Damascus International Airport. "All countries need to need to refrain from any kind of actions that lead to an increase in tension in this already restive region," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow. Peskov also said Syria's sovereignty should be respected. The arms hub is operated by the Lebanese group Hezbollah. Syrian rebel and regional intelligence sources said the strikes targeted weapons that were shipped from Iran on military and commercial cargo planes. Throughout the Syrian war, which began in March 2011, Israel has made it clear it would not allow shipments of weapons from Iran to Hezbollah units fighting in Syria. Israeli forces have on multiple occasions used airstrikes or other attacks to stop such moves, with the military often declining to confirm it was responsible for the strikes.

Chances are youve played Shovel Knight on one system or another in previous years, but if youve yet to take the game on the go, or better yet if youre looking to try its newest expansion pack, Specter of Torment, then the Switch is as good a place as any to satisfy your Shovel cravings. Although its not a port, Super Bomberman R might as well be for all the changes it makes to the traditional Bomberman formula. For all intents and purposes, this is classic Bomberman. You run around a maze dropping bombs, all the while trying to avoid getting caught in the subsequent explosions caused by both yourself and your opponents. Super Bomberman R does try to mix up the formula a little by offering a single-player campaign, but at just a couple of hours long its not especially engaging.

And if thats doubled up to 2Mbps, youre looking at huge problems such as 200ms extra latency and a packet loss level of around two-thirds. Jack that up further to 3Mbps, and packet loss of around 85% is generated, with things effectively becoming unusable even for basic surfing (let alone online gaming or business videoconferencing , for example). Downgrade is doubtful Some affected customers have even contacted Virgin Media to ask if they can revert to an older Super Hub to avoid this issue (and other flaws), but without any joy by all accounts. Hopefully a firmware fix will be coming, although theres certainly some doubt on the community forums about how long it might take Intel to produce a successful patch. As we noted in our review of the Super Hub 3 , since last year there have been reports of excessive lag and packet loss due to an issue with the Puma 6 chipset, and the patch for this is still a work in progress.
