David Wilcock stopped by Fulford’s blog this morning to comment on Ben’s latest report . David Wilcock says: Ben passes along the intel that he receives, and leaves it up to us to decide what is truth. Let’s remember this and not consider his intel as gospel. He is stunningly right in many cases but there have also been many inaccurate statements as well, which I am sure he would acknowledge. Up until now I have not heard these allegations of Trump having sex with an underage teenage girl. It is possible that they are true, and also possible that they are deliberately contrived disinformation to further the attacks against him. This might be exactly the kind of thing the Clintons would cook up to create a perfect “do not go there” trap to ensure Trump never discusses this incriminating issue. On Alex Jones’ show, Trump acknowledged visiting Epstein but said he was offered an underage girl and flatly turned him down, leaving immediately thereafter.

Now the Queen has been put in a very difficult position. I believe, for that reason alone, we should consider this and the government should consider this, with a bit of humility, to decide what action should take place and change the invitation for a visit, not a state visit.

While those in authority try to come up with a long-term solution to London’s air pollution problem, here are five tips from Steve IIey, medical director at Bupa UK Health Clinics, to help you minimise the risk to your health. 1. Keep tabs on what you’re breathing Check the air quality so you know what to expect for the day ahead. The UK uses an air quality index and banding system which is approved by the Committee on Medical Effects of Air Pollutants. You can see a table about the index and what the health advice is, both for those at risk and the general population, on the London Air website . 2. Stick to the back roads Pollution in the air gets trapped in built-up areas and the concentration levels worsen. This means that busy roads and narrow streets that are surrounded by high buildings are often where pollution is highest. Consider changing your route so that you’re walking along the back roads rather than busy, congested areas.

It has to engage those that fear the worst and will work for the best. After the division of the referendum, the Prime Minister has to make this a Brexit not just for the 52% but a Brexit that is also understood by the 48% and indeed we should also consider those who at 16 and 17 were denied the opportunity to vote on their future.

If all you need is a better seat with more legroom, you may not want to play the upgrade game with Delta. However, traveling with a lot of checked baggage could make Platinum Medallion the best option, while needing to book several award tickets might lead you to choose United thanks to the program's better award availability. Identifying the benefit(s) that are most important to you is critical in choosing a program. In addition, be sure to consider the service of each carrier (and their respective partners) from your primary airport. No sense in trying to earn status if you aren't able to use the perks at least somewhat regularly! Finally, ask yourself if any of these benefits are even worth going out of your way to earn. Some perks of high-tier status (like free checked bags or priority boarding) can be enjoyed by simply having the right travel rewards credit card .

Reports suggest PSA is aiming to raise Proton's production capacity up to 2 million units from the current 150,000. Proton is itself owned by DRB-Hicom, a large Malaysian conglomerate, and last year revealed it would consider offering Lotus to the market in its attempts to save the ailing Proton brand. At that time PSA, Renault and Suzuki were reported to have all voiced interest in purchasing Proton, but the purchase of Lotus was still uncertain. This isnt the first time the future of Lotus and its parent company have been cast into doubt - six years ago, Proton faced similar financial issues . However, the purchase of both brands by DRB-Hicom enabled Lotus to commit to a more secure future. This future includes an all-new Lotus Elise that will go on sale in 2020 . Comment about the model’s development coincided with news that Lotus has made a profit for the first time in two decades.

Because of your policies refugees have to flee all over the world. One out every three refugees in Germany comes from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. From Africa comes one out of five refugees. Your wars are also the cause of global terrorism. Instead of some 100 international terrorists like 15 years ago, we now are faced with more than 100,000 terrorists. Your cynical ruthlessness now strikes back at us like a boomerang. As usual, you do not even consider to really change your policy. You care only about the symptoms. The security situation gets more dangerous and chaotic by the day. More and more wars, waves of terror and refugee crises will determine the future of our planet. Even in Europe, the war will one day knock again at Europe’s door. Any businessman that would act like you would be fired or be in prison by now. You are total failures.

It's time for general managers and personnel executives to put their scouting skills to use as prospects attempt to put forth a good first impression at the NFL Scouting Combine. The Oakland Raiders could approach the draft in several ways. Every workout, drill or interview counts toward making crucial decisions in April. Pre -free agency, the Raiders have voids at linebacker and on the interior of the defensive line. The front office should also consider depth at offensive tackle. Once players and teams can openly negotiate contracts on March 7, roster needs will change. Nonetheless, based on the current depth chart, we'll pinpoint 10 draftees to keep an eye on during the combine. Instead of shining additional spotlight on well-known prospects, we'll dig deeper than the first-round standouts to discuss unfamiliar names, rising talents and potential mid-late round choices.

"We also ask that you launch an inquiry into the Voice of America's Persian service, whose bloated budget is the largest of all language services under the VOA," they write. "There have been numerous instances of editorials by the VOA's Persian service that have been lenient or favorable to Iran's clerical despots. We consider this to be totally unacceptable and demoralizing for pro-democracy Iranians who watch these broadcasts." Such hearings would compliment past efforts by Congress to investigate corruption at VOA, including what many describe as its pro-Tehran bent. Peter Kohanloo, a chief architect of the letter and president of the Iranian American Majority, told the Free Beacon that the missive represents an unprecedented effort by Iranian dissidents to expose the Iranian regime's "influence-peddling agenda." "Never before have so many Iranian dissidents of different political persuasions and backgrounds come together to speak with one unified voice," Kohanloo told the Free Beacon .

The vast majority of cameras at least, those aimed at beginners and enthusiasts use SD-format memory cards for recording images and videos. Over the years these have evolved to meet the demands of increasingly advanced cameras, from the higher megapixel counts of sensors to faster bursts rates and 4K video recording. A consequence of this is that todays cards bear many different indicators as to how they can be expected to perform, which can make choosing a card confusing to those unfamiliar with the terminology. We're here to demystify the process and help you find the best card for your camera, so here are the main things to consider. Type and brand The first thing to look for is whether a specific card is compatible with your camera. Assuming your camera uses the SD format, it should be compatible with the two main types of cards manufactured today, namely SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) and SDXC (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity).

2016 welcomed a barrage of new cameras equipped with 4K video recording, and now almost every major camera manufacturer has implemented 4K shooting somewhere in their lines. Perhaps most impressively, the technology has been successfully stretched over models of all billings. So, whether youve only got a few hundred pounds to spend or you're willing to stretch to a handsome four-figure sum, its likely you can afford a camera with the technology on board. Just because two cameras have 4K recording, however, doesn't mean to say they're equal. The use of different sensors and different methods of capture, together with variations in output possibilities, mean two 4K cameras can behave quite differently. Even something as simple as whether the camera uses the full width of the sensor or applies a crop factor is vital to consider, as this has a significant effect on your effective angle of view.

KUALA LUMPUR: The government will look into the proposal for the Public Service Vehicle (PSV) licence issuance system to be restructured to meet the demands of the bus services industry. Minister in the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said the move was hoped to be able to help overcome the shortage of express bus drivers in the country. "The costly fee and the difficulties in obtaining the PSV licence are among the factors causing the shortage of express bus drivers in the country. "At present, there are approximately 4,300 express bus drivers in the country, but the number is seen insufficient when some of them have to work overtime, which has become among the factors for road accidents," she told reporters after opening the Express Bus Transformation Laboratory here today. Also present was Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Tan Sri Dr Syed Hamid Albar.

We've all seen infinity mirrors. Even Mr. Spock had one in the Star Trek movies. Usually, these aren't very large and hang on the wall. [QuackMasterDan] decided (after watching another movie, Interstellar) to try making a desk using the same idea. We aren't sure it will make you more productive, but if you want to up your office cool factor, consider building his tesseract infinity desk . In fact, we imagine it would be pretty distracting. Sure to be a conversation starter, though. Unlike a regular two-plate infinity mirror, [Dan's] desk has six plates. He used metal for the structural parts of the desk and the top is a sandwich of an acrylic mirror and a large piece of half-inch tempered glass (availableunsurprisinglyon Amazon ). There's also privacy film to make the glass into a one-way mirror. He also includes instructions on how to make a wood version, too.

"We need a plan B," Soeder told Bild newspaper. The review of the Greek bailout program has been beset by delays and disputes between Athens and its European Union and International Monetary Fund creditors. As disagreement has arisen over Greece's fiscal targets, debt relief and promised reforms, fears have grown that Europe could face a new financial crisis. Greece has said it cannot cut pensions any further as demanded by the International Monetary Fund while some of its European lenders, led by Germany, have rejected the IMF's demand to grant it debt relief of some sort - perhaps on payments and maturity - now. The Fund has insisted on debt relief and precautionary fiscal measures to ensure that Athens can meet its fiscal targets before it will consider participating in the bailout. The German government, gearing up for election in September, opposes debt relief for Greece as demanded by the IMF, and says the current program can only continue if the Fund joins in.
