Folks who understand that in radical electoral politics you have to demand what you want, not what somebody thinks you can get. The present parties' constant hitting people up for donations, or signatures on phony electronic petitions, is a pathetic substitute for organizing. We have to see ourselves as active, strong, purposeful, vociferous citizen members of a people’s political party one that we know needs drastic reform, but is nevertheless the only vehicle available to us for replacing the Republican regime . We have to swallow our well-founded reservations about that Party, and learn from scratch how to actually join, exercise membership, and work from within to rebuild and revitalize it even though the Party itself is not, so far, a membership organization, and whether the current Party leadership wants us as active members or not.

However, the train frequencies for the Batu Caves-Tampin-Batu Caves route would remain at every 45 minutes during off-peak hours from Mondays to Fridays and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, the statement said. Meanwhile the change in schedule for the northern sector routes is due to cancellation of the last train from Padang Rengas and Bukit Mertajam stations which would reduce the total number of KTM Komuter service on this route to 20 trains a day compared to the current 22.

S. President-elect Donald Trump, who will take office Friday. Much of Hollywood opposed Trump in the 2016 elections and instead raised millions of dollars for his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. Redford did reflect on one of his most notable roles, as Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward in the 1976 Watergate thriller All the President's Men, saying he learned the value of investigative journalism. "Dig in and dig deep — those two things affected my filmmaking attitude," he said. A leading Hollywood man in the 1970s and 1980s, Redford created the annual Sundance gathering in Park City, Utah, to showcase independent film and talent outside of the big studios. This year, the festival has a slew of documentaries exploring topics mined from recent headlines, as well as a showcase of climate change films. Redford said the festival would not take a stance on current U.

MADRID: Motorcycling superstar Valentino Rossi expects at least six challengers as he targets an elusive 10th world title in a new MotoGP season dominated by riders switching allegiances and thereby changing bikes too. After a tense rivalry over the past four years with Jorge Lorenzo, which peaked when veteran Rossi accused current world champion Marc Marquez of conspiring to help Lorenzo win the title in 2015, Lorenzo has jumped ship to Ducati. Lorenzo's move triggered a domino effect as Maverick Vinales joined Rossi at Yamaha, whilst Andrea Iannone made way at Ducati to move to Suzuki. "It will be very interesting this season because three top riders change bike," said Rossi, who last won the title in 2009, at the launch of the YZR-M1 bike in Madrid on Thursday. "I think Lorenzo was a historical move. After eight years with Yamaha it will be very interesting, but not more easy.

"[But] I think they have to be more substantial, more grounded in everyday reality." Bachelet's reforms have included raising taxes to pay for an overhaul of education. But the tax reform has been criticized for its complexity, while some students say the education bill falls short. Streamlined tax bill Guillier said that if elected, he would introduce a new tax bill. "I think we're all in agreement it needs to be simplified," he said, adding that there were too many exemptions in the current system. Education reform needed to tackle old-fashioned approaches to teaching and running schools, Guillier said. Latin American pupils underperform peers in similar economies in international rankings. "Changing education is not just about discussing financing and administration, it's also about a revolution in the classroom. There is frustration because people feel the everyday experience is not changing," Guillier said.

Though Nintendo's big presentation last week shed plenty of light on the upcoming Nintendo Switch , we're seemingly still learning new things about the system - even if by accident. A leaked image posted on Twitter shows the handheld/console hybrid in action, showing off not just a few of the games we can expect to play on the system, but also something a little more low-key: a "Change User" prompt. The image below was originally posted by Nicalis, Inc., the publisher behind the Switch port of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+. The post only went up for a bit before the company deleted it. Credit: Nicalis, Inc. (via Twitter) If we're interpreting it right, the Change User function could mean the Nintendo Switch is capable of tracking multiple users on one device. If true, the feature would certainly be a plus for families hoping to share a console, as well as possibly making transferring account info from one Switch to another less of a pain, seeing as the current method allows only one Nintendo Network ID to be tied to a single Wii U or 3DS system.

He also drew criticism after the New York Times reported last night that Perry had accepted the Energy Secretary nomination unaware that more than half of the Department of Energy’s budget is devoted to managing the US nuclear arsenal as well as directing nuclear energy facilitiescleanup and maintenance. At the Senate hearing today, Perry attempted to persuade senators that he actually wanted the job. “My past statements made over five years ago about abolishing the Department of Energy do not reflect my current thinking,” Perry said in his opening statements. “In fact, after being briefed on so many of the vital functions of the Department of Energy, I regret recommending its elimination.” Read 16 remaining paragraphs | Comments

(video link) DETROIT—The annual North American International Auto Show, unlike most similar events in the US, is remarkably well attended by automotive suppliers as well as major OEMs like Bosch. The tier one supplier used the latest show to debut its new eAxle, a compact unit that's modular and scalable in design. As you'll see in the video, the eAxle really is a lot more compact than combining the company's current individual systems together. "We can realize five-to-ten percent efficiency over standalone components when we move to an integrated unit," explained Bosch's Jon Poponea. Look in an electric vehicle on the roads right now, and you'll probably see a whole bunch of different components, all connected with thick orange-wrapped leads.
