His speech also singles out the Russians, efforts to limit public employee union power in the Midwest, and the purveyors of fake news. The speech then describes the efforts of each of the four major arms of Brock's network of political groups: American Bridge, media-focused oppo site Media Matters, legal advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, and political blog ShareBlue. I believe we Democrats are suffering from a crisis of competence, Brock will say. Progressive politics in America is an organizational disaster. He hopes to solicit money from donors to ramp up his own network of left-wing institutions, which, he revealed in his speech, raised $75 million during the 2016 cycle. Brock is also slated to announce some leadership changes. ShareBlue, which he has previously described as a potential Breitbart of the left (he will walk back that comment in his speech, saying it is an answer to Breitbart on the left) will be led by left-wing journalist David Sirota, currently an editor at the International Business Times.

If we can diagnose cancers currently being missed by this very inaccurate standard transrectal biopsy test, and find important cancers early and treat them early, then I think we could see a significant impact on long-term survival. MRI scanning could be a solution for thousands of men but there is also a problem, a shortage of machines and radiologists to meet demand.

Just like the Tesla Powerwall 2, the Nissan xStorage solves this problem by storing energy when there’s an excess, and then releasing it when the sun is down – effectively levelling things out. How does the Nissan xStorage work? As with the Tesla Powerwall 2, the Nissan xStorage uses lithium-ion batteries to store solar energy in the day to be used at night. The Nissan xStorage also comes in two distinct versions: two “Second Lifemodels that uses reconditioned batteries from old Nissan Leafs, and currently one system that only use new batteries. Interestingly, Nissan says the xStorage also comes with solar inverters already integrated into the home battery. These inverters are bidirectional, which means, in the future, battery would be able to sell energy back to the grid, if the opportunity presented itself. Nissan xStorage: Price The Nissan xStorage is currently available in two forms, a second-life version, and a more expensive, powerful version that uses only brand-new batteries.

It's a shame there aren't more supported music sources and the app does have adverts, but it's free and it works at the push of a button. If you only have one movie information app on your phone it should probably be IMDB, but if you have two then Cinematics makes for a strong second choice. It's an incredibly fast way of finding out what the consensus on a film is, with IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes ratings shown at the top of each listing. From there you're just a tap away from trailers, reviews, cast lists and similar films, or if you just want to know what's popular, what's currently in cinemas or what's coming soon you can see all that from tabs on the home page. It lacks the trivia, community and more in depth details found on IMDB, but for the basics it's a lot faster to navigate. Google seems to be taking a strength in numbers approach to messaging apps, so joining Hangouts, Messenger and the soon to be launched Allo and Duo we have Spaces .

To celebrate being awarded the number one spot for customer satisfaction, Amazon is currently running a promotion where it will offer a 10 discount on every order over 50 . Simply use the code BIGTHANKS at checkout to apply the deal. Follow this link to Amazon for full details of the deal. There's just one problem though, and that's that two of the hottest items on Amazon right now, the Amazon Echo Dot and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch , are priced at exactly 49.99, and hence don't hit the minimum price to qualify for the deal. Enter THE PENCIL The obvious solution is to fill your basket with one extra cheap item to take it over the 50 minimum. Our pick is this excellent Harley Davidson Design Wooden Pencil . It's just 0.59, which is very reasonable for a pencil that looks this cool, and its 2B lead makes it ideal for most tasks (although it should be especially at home doing a bit of light sketching).

Have a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift , and dream of the day you can wonder around a virtual world without being tethered to a machine? Then you'll want to check out the Rivvr from Sixa. An accessory for the PC virtual reality headsets, it's a wireless transmitter that straps onto the back of your head, allowing you to beam video from your computer to your headset, making for as "wireless" an experience as VR can currently offer. Sure, you'll still need to plug a connector cable into the headset itself, and a set of headphones too, but it's as good as it gets at the moment. The Rivvr uses a 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi connection to connect to your computer, at the expense of a slight latency loss of 11mm currently - retail editions are expected to drop to a more palatable 6ms. Latency is a big deal when it comes to VR comfort, so it'll be interesting to see if this extra delay can be stomached.

Did you know you can play drums without drums? All you need is a VR headset and an app called Paradiddle (drummers will know), currently in development by musician Emre Tanirgan. To show off his creation, Tanirgan recored himself playing alongside the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black" in virtual reality, and even though he's technically just waving his hands in the air, it sounds pretty awesome. SEE ALSO: Hidden history of virtual reality According to UploadVR , Tanirgan started developing Paradiddle as he simply didn't have space for his drum set. "I was no longer going to have easy access to a drum set to practice, so I figured I could try and make my own set in VR," he said. Read more...
