9 Mkm2 continent,” the study said . So does this mean their are eight continents? Not exactly. According to geologists, Europe and Asia are one giant continent they refer to as Eurasia, which means the new addition of Zealandia brings the number of continents to seven — which is the number we've become accustomed to. Geophysicist Bruce Luyendyk coined the name Zealandia back in 1995 to refer to the two islands and other submerged pieces of crust that once separated from Gondwana. Of the new findings, in which he did not take part, he said , “These people here are A-list earth scientists. I think they have put together a solid collection of evidence that’s really thorough. I dont see that there’s going to be a lot of pushback, except maybe around the edges.” The researchers are referring to Zealandia as a “ realization ” rather than a “discovery,” since New Zealand has been considered a continent by some experts in the field for years.

The idea there is some sort of dictatorship here is a little bit outside the box. But President Trump has coined the phrase fake news. Before you was president, he suggested President Obama make his birth certificate available because he was not really American, could that be described as fake news? There was some within different organisations of the party that were pursuing that.

"Here are 'Chavista' Catholics too, not all Catholics are 'squalid'!" he said, using a pejorative term for opponents first coined by Chavez, who never forgave some in the Catholic hierarchy for endorsing a short-lived 2002 putsch against him. Underlining the latest flare-up in enmities, another senior official this month accused the Church of seeking war, while a bishop alleged clergy's telephones were being tapped. The Vatican did step into Venezuelan politics toward the end of last year, facilitating talks between the Maduro government and the opposition coalition. But the dialogue quickly collapsed amid incriminations between both sides. Outside the San Pedro Claver church in "23 De Enero," a painted figure of St. Peter sits on a wall next to the slogan "We are with Chavez and Maduro." Most worshipers there simply hope there will be no repeat of last month's scary incident, when the group disrupted Mass and also barricaded the road outside to block a procession.

Come with me, youll hear very clear answers, he told reporters accompanying him on the flight. If confirmed, a departure from a two-state policy would present Israel with diplomatic, political and demographic challenges as it contends with the complex question of how to deal with a Palestinian population now under limited self-rule. Far-right partners in Netanyahus coalition have called for the annexation of parts of the West Bank, a demand he has resisted. Last month, Israels Haaretz newspaper said Netanyahu, in a closed-door meeting with Likud ministers, coined a new term Palestinian state-minus to describe his vision of limited Palestinian sovereignty in the territory. He has already conditioned Palestinian statehood on demilitarisation, long-term presence of Israeli troops in the West Bank and Palestinian recognition of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.

4%). The impact of the fall of commodity prices on African economies illustrate their fragility, and that of the ubiquitous and premature "Africa Rising" narrative, which doesn't distinguish between Mauritius and Congo. Africa's growth in recent years was to a significant extent due to export of commodities and other raw materials, and major economies like Nigeria and South Africa were most exposed to these structural weaknesses. The trouble with commodity-driven growth is that it's at the mercy of external forces and shocks. So when global markets sneeze, Africa's major economies seem to catch Malaria. Some are calling this " Africa Reeling ", the very same people who coined and cheered for the "Africa Rising" narrative. Real economic development springs from adding value to resources, not merely exporting them crude. Economic growth alone doesn't reduce poverty levels until its benefits are spread among the larger population.

Fake news is the new way to deride any report that doesnt champion Trump. Trump has no problem dashing off tweets that are not grounded in facts. But Trump's aides are not making this easy on themselves. Take White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, who had repeatedly cited the non-existent Bowling Green Massacre to justify the Administrations efforts to ban some immigrants and refugees . (She clarified it later.) She also coined alternative facts as a euphemism for her spin on a situation. Spicer invoked an Atlanta terror attack that didnt happen. (He meant Orlando.) He also was forced to go before the White House briefing room to defend Trumps unfounded claim that millions of votes were cast illegally in November. The President does believe that, Spicer said under repeated questioning.

Despite all of the controversy surrounding Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II, the aircraft sure does dazzle. The multirole stealth fighter jet, originally intended to work alongside the F-22 Raptor and ultimately replace the robust but aging F-16, F-18 and AV-8B Harrier, sports at least three unique variants (F-35A, F-35B and F-35C) that provide the airplane with unique operational capabilities. Perhaps the most well-known is the aircraft's ability to hover and perform vertical take-off and landings (VTOL), making the jet more versatile, and one of the only stealth fighters in the world capable of such functionality. Coined a centerpiece of 21st century global security, the program is backed by at least twelve countries worldwide, but has been met with steady criticism from participating governments and their citizens wary of exceeding budgetsconstant modifications have led development to run almost $200 billion over budget and nearly 10 years behind schedule.

Once at a family reunion, when I was 16, one of my aunts, upon seeing me, loudly announced, "Oh, Lord, look at Sissy, she's going to be BIG like the rest of us!" I suppose I must have chunked up a bit since she last laid eyes on me. It was Thanksgiving 1979 and I didn't touch a bite of food the rest of the day. At 16, I had zero knowledge or awareness of the eating disorder epidemic that was about to sweep the country. I just knew I wanted in. My aunt's comment ignited a resolved determination in me that ran unchecked for many years. I clearly remember thinking, "Over my dead body am I going to be BIG like the rest of you!" I was in good company because every girl I knew had "body issues" in the 80s. Seems like everyone was a dot somewhere on the spectrum, even if it didn't entirely run their lives. There were anorexics, bulimics and they even coined the term "bulorexic" for the girls that couldn't quite commit.

Not a shred of evidence. The case to support the order is based on half-truths, misinformation and so-called "alternative facts", a new term for lies coined by the president's aides. His disparaging remarks on the "so-called judge" US District Court Judge James Robart, who overturned his order based on a legal suit filed by the state governments of Washington and Minnesota, were unprecedented in US history. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeal would be hearing soon the appeal by the White House to rescind the injunction by Judge Robart. Most analysts now expect the case to go to the US Supreme Court for a final ruling. Even the president's own Republican allies in Congress are distancing themselves from him. More states in the US are now joining in the legal challenges to the immigrant order. Trump's immigration order appears to be part of his grand "anti-Muslim global strategy", which included a three-prong offensive against the right of the Palestinians to their homeland and the UN-sponsored peace process via: his support of illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank (which the whole world, including his predecessor Barack Obama, has condemned); his questioning of a UN-sponsored two-state solution (which all his predecessors supported after the Palestinians agreed to a compromise for the sake of peace); his outrageous idea of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The 70-year Transatlantic alliance between the United States and the Europe was formed around common values and norms that demanded commitment not just to democracy, the rule of law and human rights, but also to the values of a liberal economy that supported free, fair and open rule-based trade. It was this international liberal economic order that emerged after World War II that led to the establishment of the World Bank, IMF, and free and open trading system through the GATT (1948) and later the World Trade Organization (WTO-1994) and regional trade agreements. Keynesian economics , which advocates mixed economy that are led predominantly by the private sector, but with a role for government intervention during the recession, served as the standard economic model from 1945 to 1973. Embedded liberalism , a phrase coined by John Ruggie to describe protection gained for workers with the embedded liberal compromise, dominated from from the World War II up until the 1970s, and brought with it a combination of free trade and freedom for states to provide welfare programs and to intervene to reduce unemployment.
