When the first Peoples Climate March took to the New York City streets in September 2014, it was billed as the largest climate march in history. At the time, it was: A crowd of up to 400,000 rallied in protest of international inaction on global warming, and sent a clear message to the world leaders gathering just days later for the United Nations summit on climate change. The march, national coordinator Paul Getsos tells Fast Company , was a success: It united a broad coalition of movements and advocacy groups into a cohesive event. But it wasnt perfect. I wish that the end of the march event was stronger, Getsos says. And I wish that we had a plan to keep our structures in place. This year, when the Peoples Climate March descends on Washington, D.C., on April 29 , it will have such a plan in place.

Eric Monkman’s team beats Bobby Seagull’s in semi-final of TV quiz show, but Bobby is there to lend support in the final It was billed as a titanic final battle between two implacable enemies. After months of cerebral combat on BBC2’s University Challenge , two of the series’s breakout social media stars – the intensely focused Canadian Eric Monkman , of Wolfson College, Cambridge, and the expressive east Londoner Bobby Seagull , of Emmanuel College, Cambridge – would come face-to-face in a hotly-anticipated semi-final. Fans on Twitter called it “the showdown of the century ” and the two men “the Ronaldo and Messi of University Challenge”, spawning countless online jokes and (inevitably) a trending hashtag – #Monkmania. “Seagull v Monkman, 8pm tonight,” tweeted one viewer . “I havent been this excited since Pacino and De Niro finally came face to face in Heat.” Continue reading...

The first is because its billed as an upgradable laptop with a replaceable GPU and CPU, a move aimed at maximising ROI by lengthening the lifecycle of a product that could cost thousands. Incidentally, that also means vendors can use one base unit for a number of use cases, saving on development and rollout costs. End users can therefore configure laptops with Xeon or Core i7 CPUs paired with GeForce or Quadro parts. Secondly, the larger size also means theres space for ample expansion capabilities with up to four storage drives (two M2.2280 SSDs and two 9.5mm, 2.5-inch bays) and four SO-DIMM sockets. The same applies to connectivity options: theres 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, six USB ports (including two TB3/Type-C), two mini-DisplayPorts, one HDMI 2.0, four audio ports, one Ethernet connector, a card reader, and a fingerprint sensor.

The Business Pro plan which is 13 ($16.25) a month takes this even further with support for up to three sites, unlimited subdomains, email addresses and FTP logins, and automatic malware scanning added to the mix.

Last week, Jason Greenblatt, a White House envoy who reports to Kushner, paid his first official visit to the region, holding a series of meetings with Israeli and Palestinian officials on what was billed as a listening tour to sound out the sides. As the U.S. pushes forward, Kushner's family's business and personal ties to Israel have raised questions over his ability to mediate. Of course the Palestinians are not happy dealing with Jared Kushner ... but they have no other options, said Palestinian political analyst Jehad Harb. Kushner and the whole new American team assigned to handle the Palestinian-Israeli conflict ... have very close ties with settlements (and) it's unlikely they are going to understand the Palestinian demand of dismantling most of the Jewish settlements, but the Palestinian Authority cannot say no at this stage.

The video, titledWelcome to the Home of the Jewish People,” was billed as a short history of the Jews. It follows the travails of a Jewish couple, called Jacob and Rachel, when their home (the “Land of Israel”) is invaded by various groups, including the Assyrians, Babylonians, Greeks, Arabs, Crusaders, the British Empire and finally the Palestinians. It thus proposes that Jews have survived a series of brutal invasions, with the only remaining invaders the Palestinians. The video provoked a strong reaction from Palestinian activists and those who work for Palestinian rights due to its clear attempt to rewrite the history of the conflict, framing of Israeli Jews as victims rather than the Palestinians, and deployment of racialized and violent language in its depiction of the Palestinians. Netanyahu’s ethnic cleansing video is the latest in a series of videos planned and executed by David Keyes, Netanyahu's foreign media spokesman, who was appointed in March 2016.

Since the Kafkaesque billing system rewards quick turn-arounds, observation is frowned upon unless it can be billed. So if observation is deemed necessary (to avoid any liability, of course), Carlos might be wheeled into an observation room filled with other people, where a nurse pops in every once in a while. This adds $3,000 to the bill. (Never mind the stress on Carlos being in such unfamiliar surroundings; he might have felt better if he hadn't been subjected to the anxieties that come with being enmeshed in the healthcare system's straight-jacket of standards of care .) If Carlos doesn't feel better after all this, then the bill is set to balloon bigtime because an overnight stay in the hospital is the next stepand if there isn't a 100% certainty that there is no chance of his stomach-ache becoming something serious, then the system will insist on overnight observation as the only legally defensible option.

Even Trump has said Greenwich’s hedge fund guys ‘get away with murder’ – but can this debt-ridden state afford to close the loophole known as carried interest?

Protesters held a banner saying, “Jews wont be free until Palestinians are, reject AIPAC, reject occupation.” IfNotNow, a group of young, left-wing U.S. Jews organized the action, which was billed as a Reclaim, Resist, and Reimagine rally. Almost 700 people said they would attend on the event's Facebook page, Haaretz reported. The outlet also said that it was the first time that a protest against the organization had drawn such big numbers and so many Jewish people. The protesters carried signs against the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands as well as the increasing abuses against Palestinians.

Kentucky GOP Rep. Thomas Massie said Thursday that the Trump administration had not convinced him to change his vote on the bill to replace Obamacare, and said that he hoped it would sink in the House. “I am still very much opposed to the bill,” Massie said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Thursday. “I think it’s worse than Obamacare.” Massie, who on Wednesday tweeted that he planned to voteHELL NO” on the bill, is one of several Republican legislators who have become increasingly vocal about their opposition to the bill, which the White House has billed is the only chance Republicans will have to replace the Affordable Care Act. Massie criticized the bill as “replacing mandates, subsidies and penalties with mandates, subsidies and penalties.” “Frankly, it’s not very well thought out,” he added. “And right now, here in the last four hours, it’s like a rocket that’s lost its fins.

Where do you begin with the Chiron? Modestly billed by Bugatti as “the world’s most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production sports car ” it’s perhaps best to start with the Top Trumps facts. Price? Just over £2m, excluding taxes. Maximum speed? Limited to 261mph in VMAX mode, and a piffling 236mph in shopping mode. The engine is a highly evolved version of the Veyron ’s 8.0-litre, quad-turbo W16 that develops 1,500bhp and 1,600Nm of torque. 500 cars will be built in total, with approximately 70 cars scheduled for build in 2017. Image 2 of 15 Image 2 of 15 Perhaps the most remarkable fact is Bugatti has taken firm deposits for 250 cars. And all from customers who have yet to drive it.
