In the beginning we heard from a Labour Peer moving the amendment, she speaks for the party on Brexit. She recalled a speech in 1985, famously at a torrid conference when he said you cannot play politics with people's jobs. She said you cannot play politics with people's futures. And we heard a rebel Tory taking his late father is titled, the former Tory cabinet minister, talking about the world high ground he said it is often the best ground to fight a campaign.

But the lull that can coincide with a presidential handoff, he says, doesn't mean bars will be empty for long. "You can tell who the new folks are when they come in. A lot of our staff gets to know regulars by their first name, they know what they drink and what kind of music they listen to," he said, describing the transitional window as a kind of protracted courtship. "For the new folks, it's like a new date," he added. "Like 'Hi, nice to meet you!' We are still getting to know them and they’re still getting to know us." At Capitol Lounge, the majority of patrons say they're there on “political business.” Some came for a conference on healthcare reform, while others came to meet with the new administration or get a job on the Hill. "I am here for a conference for an Affordable Care Act," said Carol Cain Bush, a community health professional from West Virginia who's targeting professional opportunities in Washington.

This country has struggled too long against racism, sexism, xenophobia, and homophobia. We will not go back. We are going to go forward and fight discrimination of all forms. I must say that I also found it very troubling that, at a recent press conference, when President Trump was given an opportunity to condemn the bigotry and anti-Semitism that has arisen in the wake of his election, he chose to respond by braggingincorrectly, by the way about the size of his Electoral College victory. Our society is still riven by tensions from the campaign, and Americans need a president who will try to bring us together, rather than boast about his political victory. Let me take this opportunity to thank J Street for the bold voice that they’ve provided in support of American leadership in the Middle East and efforts towards peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Last weekend at the J Street conference, Ilan Goldenberg, a former high official in President Obama's foreign policy brain trust, took issue with an Israeli diplomat s assertion that the United States was withdrawing from the Middle East and engaging more in East Asia, in part because of energy independence. Goldenberg said: I'm not sure the U.S. is moving out of the Middle East quite the way Alon [Pinkas] described it. President Obama pulled us back pretty significantly to sort of more of a normal place, to where we were before we went into Iraq. The reality is that even he got drawn in again after ISIS popped up on the scene, and after we over-withdrew from the Middle East. We’re still dropping bombs as we were at the end of the Obama administration in six countries in the Middle East. As much as we dont rely on oil, the world economy still relies on oil, it’s one international market, and the United States forces still underwrite the basic security of the the sea lanes that send that oil and trade out of the Middle East and also connect Europe and Asia overall.

Similar concerns were voiced when the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom convened a conference of settler colonialism in Palestine. A very fruitful dialogue with the Anglo-Jewish community showed that this cannot only be understood as a legitimate conference topic but also as an important contribution for furthering the research on Israel and Palestine. To silence anyone for teaching about settler colonialism or ethnic cleansing in Israel and Palestine, or further researching about it, is a grave violation of academic freedom and free speech. It de-legitimizes the vast majority of scholars who work today on Israel and Palestine around the world, many of whom are employing these paradigms to understand the past and the present realities. To fire someone or stop employing someone on the basis of such intellectual curiosity in Germany is an insult to the past and successful efforts to build a free and democratic society there.

“This president's speech matters a lot less than the speeches of just about any other president because they're detached from his reality. He talks one way and does another,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on CNN Wednesday morning, adding on ABC that Trumptalks to the working folks of America, they were his main constituency, but the way he's governed has been totally with the hard right special interests against the working people.” Trump on Tuesday night showed off a new personasharper suit, trimmer hair, less “American carnage” and more talk of “the hopes that stir our souls.” While vague on policy points, he still delivered a focused message of GOP priorities on tax reform, rebuilding the military, creating jobs, and repealing and replacing Obamacare. Gone was the Trump of two Thursdays ago when he spent 80 minutes railing against the “dishonest media” in a freewheeling press conference that was seen by some as racially insensitive.

This has been a strange year for Big Ten men's basketball, because the league does not appear to have an elite team this year. Purdue sits in first place in the league standings , but the 24-6 Boilermakers rank 16th in the nation. That ranking is not going to go up very much before the end of the regular season Sunday, and that basically translates to a No. 4 seed in the NCAA tournament. It's unusual when the Big Ten does not have a No. 1 or No. 2 seed, but no team has stepped up to look like it could make a memorable and deep run in the tournament. That doesn't mean it won't happen, and a Big Ten team could start revving its motor during the upcoming conference tournament. Normally played in Indianapolis or Chicago, the Big Ten tournament goes east this year and will be played at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. The tournament begins March 8, and the championship will be handed out March 12.

NOUAKCHOTT: Fifa president Gianni Infantino promised to come good on a promise to hike Africa's World Cup finals berths to nine or ten during a visit to the impoverished West African state of Mauritania this week. "We want everyone to have the right to dream and how better to do that that taking part in a major event such as a World Cup," Infantino told a press conference. During last year's hotly contested Fifa elections Infantino promised African federation chiefs that if elected he would increase the continent's meagre five World Cup berths in a new look competition featuring 48 nations rather that the current format of 32. "Of the 48 teams scheduled for the 2026 World Cup nine or ten will be African. We'll be working on that," the Swiss head of world football promised. The expansion of the World Cup, passed by the Fifa Council in January, comes into effect for the 2026 tournament.

U.K. reality star Sam Faiers also made a splash for breastfeeding her 9-month-old son, Paul, during an appearance on ITVs This Morning in October. And back in March 2015, journalist Rebecca Traister went on MSNBC with her newborn daughter, Bella, though she did not nurse the baby. Being able to nurse on the job is a privilege for Sklar. I work for myself, so I have had a ton of flexibility around nursing, she told HuffPost. That said, I have had a number of meetings or professional events that I bring her to ― SXSW, WHCD , DNC ― because otherwise I wouldnt be able to go (especially since she was a bad eater early on and wouldnt take a bottle ― the struggle was real), so Id nurse where needed. Sklar said she nursed Ruby during a panel at the BlogHer conference in 2015 and also quietly in the background of a professional dinner she attended.

Kennedy Jr., Chairman of the World Mercury Project (WMP) , recently announced a $100,000 challenge aimed at putting an end to the inclusion of mercury, a neurotoxin that is 100 times more poisonous than lead, in vaccines administered in the U.S and globally. It’s offered to anybody, including journalists and scientists, who can provide a study showing that it is safe to inject mercury into babies. This will be difficult, as hundreds of studies (that were also present at the press conference in print form) show it is absolutely unsafe, and can significantly increase the risk of developing neurodegenerative disorders. You can read more about this here . Multiple cases of vaccine fraud have been uncovered, but this is something you might not know given the fact that the mainstream media completely ignores these facts, and vaccines are heavily marketed.

Yesterday we learned not from the 2026 strategy but from the accompanying press conference that 400 officers will be cut from the single force by 2020 and that officers are currently backfilling a ministry to rules. This came one week after I received a letter from David peeves the deputy fossa with Bonnie Scotland denying that the policy even existed.
