After eight years in office, what media legacy is Barack Obama leaving behind, and what might it mean for journalists in Trump's America? When Obama first took office in 2008, he promised the media unprecedented openness in government - music to the ears of those coming out of the Bush years. However, with a crackdown on whistleblowers, leakers and journalists, plus the Justice Department spearheading more prosecutions under the Espionage Act - a law passed 100 years ago - than all previous US administrations combined, has Obama been let off lightly? Obama has absolutely handed Trump, not just a road map, the keys to the kingdom. How to clamp down on the press. David Zurawik, media critic, The Baltimore Sun It's really been a tremendous disappointment. The Obama administration started out really strong and he said all the right things about the Freedom of Information Act [FOIA] and transparency and government openness but in the end, eight years later, we've seen a huge number of FOIA requests that have been gone unanswered, an incredible number of prosecutions of leakers under the Espionage Act and there's been a tremendous amount of pressure on the journalists as a result," says Lynn Oberlander, general counsel of media operations at First Look Media.

What is this, 2009? Let's face facts though smartphones are computing powerhouses now, but gaming on them is still generally awful. It doesn't matter if you've got the horsepower to emulate any system from the last millennium when your control scheme involves awkwardly pawing away at glass when what you need is real buttons. You need a real controller, and [silver] has the answer a 3D printed phone mount for the original Xbox Controller . It's more useful than it initially sounds. The original Xbox used USB 1.1 for its controllers. With a simple OTG cable, the controllers can be used with a modern smartphone for gaming. The simple 3D printed clamp means you can have a mobile gaming setup for pennies old controllers are going cheap and it's only a couple of dollars worth of filament. The trick is using the controller's hilariously oversized memory card slots for some reason, Microsoft thought it'd be fun to repackage a 64MB flash drive into the biggest possible form factor they could get away with.

Educator Tanya Gaxiola, 39, who flew in from Tucson, Arizona, expressed concern that Trump will seek to restrict abortion laws and otherwise clamp down on women's rights. "He's a narcissist and seeks approval, and this is a big display of disapproval," Gaxiola said. "Hopefully, it catches his attention." "Women won't back down," "Women's rights are human rights" and "Thank you Trump - you turned me into an activist," read some of the thousands of handmade signs held aloft in the capital. Fight back! In Boston, where up to 175,000 people demonstrated, fiery Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren took aim at Trump's campaign of "attacks" on women and minorities. "We can whimper. We can whine. Or we can fight back!" Warren said to a loud roar. Saturday's rallying cry was heard far beyond America's shores, with organizers saying over 2.5 million people signed up for one of more than 600 marches worldwide.

Brock called together about 120 wealthy liberals at a posh hotel outside Miami for a countereventtwo days of closed-door meetings to plot strategy and raise money. The barrier to entry for donors was the ability to give $100,000, and about 20% of the group were new donors, Brock says. The slate included a combination of new and old faces to progressive activism: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Silicon Valley titans Mark Pincus of Zynga and Reid Hoffman of LinkedIn, along with several candidates to lead the Democratic Party and employees of Brock-controlled groups like Media Matters. This is to fund us, plus there are half a dozen things that have to get done that we are not doing, Brock says. Among Brocks plans are new efforts to shift his media-monitoring operation to focus more on smaller news websites, which often work by looser editorial standards in an effort to win converts to the conservative cause, and to pressure Facebook and Google to further clamp down on false news stories .

The car's low stance helps reduce any tendency to pitch and roll, and to this end the 2017 model has thicker anti-roll bars than before, a stiffer bodyshell, and the transmission cross-member has also been reinforced. Image 3 of 25 Image 3 of 25 The GT86 starts making sense when you start to push it. The grip limit of the rear tyres arrives much sooner than you might expect, but the traction control is especially keen to intervene, so beginners need not worry. However, for those who are no longer beginners, from 2017 there’s a ‘Trackmode. This sets the traction and stability control system to minimum intervention, giving you plenty of freedom to play with the rear axle and enjoy the car’s sweet balance but with the ultimate reassurance of a safety net. Indeed, with (very) generous use of the throttle, the car will hold big angles before the electronics clamp down on the fun.

Most selfie sticks come with a mount that adjusts in width in order to securely hold your smartphone in a horizontal position. A rubberised clamp or bracket that firmly squeezes around your device is one of the most common types. Just make sure to read through the product listing to ensure its clamp is compatible with your device. The other thing important thing to consider is whether the selfie stick's clamp can rotate or swivel around. We’ve found that almost all selfie sticks will offer up to 180 degrees in adjustability, which should allow you to take a wide range of selfies at different angles. Some selfie stick mounts are also versatile in that they will support action cameras such as GoPros. What features should I look out for? Selfie sticks are built to be portable, so you’re going to want one that’s compact when folded down. While most selfie sticks will fold to about 8 inches in length, there are a few - usually more expensive - models that collapse to a shorter length for easy stowing in a bag or pocket.
