I think it's fair to say that as teenagers, most of us knew our place in the big scheme of things but life was a lot simpler. My photo of a parade of Leicester shops triggered happy teenage memories for reader Anthony Yarham. Your photograph and article about Evington Road brought back many memories from the 1940s, writes Mr Yarham, now of Dumfries, Scotland.

in the coming months and years they are not doing now. One of the things that has come to light, particularly in this attack, is the link to criminality. There's an easy transition from violent crime to violent extremism. That's something we have missed, but it was brought to the attention of the authorities and it's an area we need to focus.

) She tackled the Life of Christ with a passel of animals, special effects, and 300 extras. She popped viewers eyes with candy-colored hand tinting. She built a state-of-the-art film studio in Fort Lee, New Jersey, pruning the terrain to serve as a variety of landscapes. Viewed from the lens of 2017, one of her most startling achievements is 1912’s A Fool and His Money , an excerpt of which is below. The tale itself is an unremarkable crowdpleaser: a poor guy falls in love with a wealthy young woman. He goes to great lengths to woo her, outfitting himself with fancy duds and throwing a huge party, only to be bested by a flashy rival. What is remarkable is that Guy-Blaché was white and the film’s cast is entirely African-American. According to essayist Stratton, the characters are portrayed with none of the explicit racism DW Griffith brought to The Birth of a Nation three years later.

Born in Kent in southeast England, Masood was a British citizen with convictions for assault and possession of offensive weapons dating from 1983 to 2003. According to The Sun tabloid, he married a Muslim woman in 2004 and moved the following year to Saudi Arabia to teach, returning in 2009. Police said he went by numerous aliases, including, reportedly, Adrian Elms, while reports suggest he lived all over England, including in Luton and east London. He was described as "a nice guy" by Iwona Romek, a former neighbour in Birmingham, who told the Birmingham Mail: "He had a wife, a young Asian woman and a small child who went to school." Rowley said police were "looking at his history" and appealed for any public information about him, adding: "Our investigation focuses on understanding his motivation, preparation and associates." The crowds at Trafalgar Square late Thursday brought messages of defiance, flags and flowers, and offered their condolences to officers who lost a colleague in the attack.

My message to Rep. Nunes: Shame on you! #Trumplies #TrumpRussia pic.twitter.com/ljHM85fAqTMaxine Waters (@MaxineWaters) March 23, 2017 Waters has repeatedly called for Trump to be impeached even though she has no evidence of any wrong doing by the president. A key part of Waters' claims against the president has been citing an unsubstantiated dossier written by a former British intelligence agent. "Let's get on with the right business of finding out really what happened so that we can make sure that those people responsible will have to be brought to the bar of justice and of course, this president, impeachment!" Waters concluded. The post Maxine Waters Again Calls for Trump to Be Impeached, Now Wants Nunes Investigated appeared first on Washington Free Beacon .

Throughout modern media, mainstream news and television, well-groomed presenters, who are really actors, are trained to use language, pause, inflection, volume, suspense, drama, and emotion instruct you how to receive a message. This is rehearsed and perfected so-that you only see the final confident and authoritative performance. Group-think doesnt just happen. Conformity of thought and deed are cultural implants, brought into being by clever marketers, psychological change makers, and script writers. The TED formula works, and pretty much anyone can copy it, and in the era of fake news and intense propaganda, it’s no longer acceptable to take media at face value. Given the nature of the human mind, most people are unaware enough to separate the information being presented from the way in which it is intended to be received. Furthermore, much of what is presented to us as live broadcasting is actually well-planned, well-thought out, well-rehearsed and well-designed to not only plant ideas in our society, but to shape how we feel about those ideas.

This strategy did not succeed. “That was the only time that we, as counsel for Guantanamo detainees, have ever been concerned that the government would come after us for representing Guantanamo detainees and for advocating that Guantanamo be subject to U.S. and international law, including the Geneva Conventions,” Dixon shared. CCR was responsible for the first cases brought in 2002 in defense of detainees’ due process rights. The Rasul v. Bush decision by the Supreme Court not only gave detainees the right to challenge their detention but made it possible for lawyers like Dixon to go to Guantanamo and meet with detainees to hear their stories. The idea that the government would create a “law-free zone,” Dixon recalled, “ran contrary to everything we believed.” It is why lawyers stepped up to represent individuals detained at Guantanamo. Detainees would have had “no ability to challenge the legality of their detention,” if private counsel or private law firms had not stepped forward to represent them.
