When he talked about the renewal of the American spirit. How would you describe what that is? What is the powerhouse in the world remains but has been challenged. Our liedership around the world, our -- our leadership, our relationship with our Allies has been weakened over the last eight years. Enemies such as ISIS and terror states like Iran have grown in strength and, you know, there is a perception that some of the core foundations of American greatness, while they still remain, have been pretty significantly.

Making his first address before the U.S. Congress, President Donald Trump projected a brighter luster Tuesday night than he did in the speech at his inauguration six weeks ago. “The time for small thinking is over,” he declared. “The time for trivial fights is behind us.” But there was reference to fightingespecially the battle against what the president calledradical Islamic terrorism.” That is a phrase, according to several news organizations, that National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and some members of his staff advised Trump to stop using. McMaster reportedly told his staff last week he preferred the termradical Islamist terrorism” which is used to describe fundamentalist supporters of Islam-based government and society, rather than an implied blanket covering all Muslims. Specifically mentioning the so-called Islamic State group, Trump said the United States “will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet.

Those who had an opportunity to do so among Mosul's large civilian population continue to flee into the uncertain future of a dangerous flight through landmines and an open-ended stay in refugee camps. Those who aren't able remain in Mosul, hiding in basements as the fighting happens all around in the streets. In western Mosul, these fights are increasingly desperate, with the ISIS fighters surrounded, no escape possible, and largely no attempted escape even being pondered, as locals describe a growing number of foreign ISIS fighters, far from home and with no local contacts prepare to fight to the end . This determination to fight to the last further underscores how long, and bloody, this fight is going to be. It took Iraqi forces three months to take over eastern Mosul, and the western half of the city is the more populous, and by far was the more heavily defended by ISIS.

Fast forward a few months to today, and Samsung is set to make its next big release, this time in the form of the next-gen Galaxy S8 lineup. As such, the brand is doing everything it can to prove that these new phones wont explode and take out your home, Jeep, or girlfriend checking out your phone in the middle of the night. So far, the brand has released three different ads, two of which include quick peeks into the testing each phone goes through before being shipped out and put on the shelf. In the video above, you even get to watch the battery get punctured by what one could only describe as a freaky mind probe from a science fiction movie, but it doesnt blow up. The phone is even shown operating in excessively cold temperatures and being bent under pressure without any big boom taking place. Apparently, the brand now has what it calls a seven-point battery test that ensures each battery is free of defect.

When the US sneezes, the world catches a cold is a common phrase used to describe the significance of the US economy in the global macro system. But in recent years, more and more people have applied the same metaphor to China, as the latter grows in size and influence, and starts to project its economic power globally. There is nowhere that Chinas influence is better manifested than in Asia. Economically, China accounts for 32 per cent of total regional trade and its...

I think there's always a kernel of truth in each of the articles that are out there. But that's about holding the press accountable, as well as the press holding the President and us accountable as elected officials, that's what the American tradition is all about and I support that. The next one, do you agree that the press are the enemies of the people, would you use phrase to describe the media? I think when you're talking about an objective press that's doing the job of journalism, that's made us proud over generations, no.

OK. The next one, do you agree that the press are the enemies of the people, would you use phrase to describe the media? I think when you're talking about an objective press that's doing the job of journalism, that's made us proud over generations, no. That is a tradition that we support and has made us stronger as a nation, going forward. And I'll just give you a last one on this very brief, isn't covered immediately by the press, and that's good.

Then one day Jaime watched as they stormed into his home and held a gun to his abuelo’s head, warning that they’d kill the entire family if he didnt give them his boat. He tried to explain that it belonged to the cooperative, and in any case he needed it to feed his family, but they were apparently unpersuaded by his logic. He was playing cards with friends at Jaime’s soccer game when the gang members gunned him down. Jaime’s grandmother did not even dare to hold a wake; she gathered Jaime and his brother and fled the country. They paid drivers to take them most of the way to the U.S., then crossed on foot into Texas, where they were scooped up by Border Patrol agents. Jaime and his brother spent three days in a “hielera,” or icebox, as migrants describe the chilly detention cells at the border, and then three weeks in a “perrera,” or dog kennel, another holding facility in San Benito.

It did not occur to her that anyone could interpret this status as expressing support of a terrorist organization. In the latest hearing on Jan. 26 2017, a heated exchanges erupted between the prosecutor, Hardak, and the defense attorney, Lasky. The prosecutor tried to force Tatour to admit that she sympathizes with the goals of Islamic Jihad and that she supports violence and “the knife intifada,” an increase in violence that reached its peak in 2015. The poet strongly refuted these claims, repeatedly denouncing the use of violence and reiterating her commitment to art and poetry. Lasky claimed that these charges are based, yet again, on misleading translations of the terms that Palestinians use to describeintifada” (popular uprising) and “muqawama” (resistance). The wordintifada” in Arabic became famous worldwide in 1987 when Palestinian resistance to the occupation was transformed from an armed struggle to a mass popular uprising, with people from all walks of life, including women and children, confronting occupation soldiers.

That crisis was evident throughout the J Street conference. The paradigm these people have given lip service to for 20 years, the two state solution, looks to be finished. Even Martin Indyk said from the stage that it is “dead” (though adding that in the Middle East dead things come alive again). Some large portion of the Ashkenazi establishment in Israel came to J Street to plead with the organization to put pressure on Israel; and J Street leaders kept citing the support for two states from Israeli generals. Let us leave aside the political difficulties of that program but it is not as if that program is very inspiring to young American Jews. One older speaker after another got up to describe the threat to Zionism posed by Jews ceasing to be a majority in the one-state era. Omer Bar-Lev, a member of Knesset, warned about the end of the Zionist dream.

I wonder, how would you describe the way that they handled events on that day? I think they may have been very much surprised and were not prepared, as I said. They were not ready prepared for that, and despite.
