Given the uncertainty that exists both at home and abroad about the direction of our foreign policy, it would be against our national interests to have this confirmation unnecessarily delayed or embroiled in controversy. Therefore, despite my reservations, I will support Mr. Tillerson's nomination in committee and in the full Senate, Rubio wrote. During the confirmation hearing earlier in January, Tillerson underscored the need for the United States to be clear eyed about Russia. He also said that it was a fair assumption that Putin was behind cyber attacks aimed at the U.S. presidential election. However, he would not describe Putin as a war criminal when pressed by Rubio on Russian airstrikes that have targeted civilians in Syria. Monday's committee vote paves the way for the full Senate to vote on Tillerson's nomination.

It has been known for decades that when stressed, glasses will form shear bands, lines that localize the strain. Many ideas have been put forward about how this happens, but now Wolynes' group can explain the phenomenon using a general theory of how glasses form based on energy landscapes. Wolynes has continued his long-running study of the molecular properties of glass at Rice's Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP), where he also develops the physics of energy landscapes for protein and DNA folding. His motivation for the new work was to see if the formation of shear bands could be explained through computations that describe how stress changes the rate of atomic rearrangement in the glass. My immediate interest is to show that this phenomenon of the shear bands, which is a noticeable thing in metallic materials, can be understood as part of the unified theory of glasses, he says.

If you have read any of my previous articles, you may already know that I am a huge advocate of keeping a journal, or diary or notebookwhichever term you like best to describe the act of writing out your thoughts on paper, or if you prefer, typing them out on a screen. Personally, journaling is something that has helped me get through some really tough times in my life and is also a great tool for just allowing some new perspective and a space to vent without judgment or advice. But for all of those skeptics out there who don't understand how something like this could actually help, well, there's science to prove it. Scientific Evidence To Prove How Journaling Helps Psychologists from the University of California were able to investigate the effect of journaling by inviting 20 volunteers to visit the lab for a brain scan before asking them to write for 20 minutes a day for four consecutive days.

Kellyanne Conway just came up with a new word to describe how the Trump administration lies. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, tells you about “alternative facts." Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “For Donald Trump, size matters -- most recently, when it comes to discussion of his inaugural crowds. But not when it comes to feuds: the president and top aides demonstrated again this weekend that no fight is too small, no spat too insignificant; they spent the first full day of his term focused publicly not on policy pushes, but on re-litigating the number of people who'd come in person to watch him take the oath of office -- and using it as one of several avenues of attack on the press. On Sunday, Day 3 of the Trump-launched Inauguration Crowd Controversy, senior adviser Kellyanne Conway had a new spin on the situation -- and a notably rocky reception from anchors on several networks, including a very skeptical Chuck Todd on Meet the Press.

Thomas McMullan 56 min ago Games The sound of the crackling is warm. That’s the word I would use to describe it. It is warm and, more importantly, it is music. If you’d asked me a week ago how it would feel to hear the faint, warm crackling of a record player, I wouldnt have given you an answer this effusive. I wouldnt have grabbed you by the collar, brought your face within inches of mine, and told you that it makes me feel safe. But the save points in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard make me feel exactly that. The tape recorder that lets me save my progress, the crackling music. Like a bonfire, I feel my body defrost. This is so different from the silence outside of these rooms. A silence that, like John Cage’s famous 433composition, isnt a silence at all, but rather a blank canvas for the rustles, crunches and whispers of other humans. Except, in Resident Evil 7’s case, these sounds arent necessarily all human.

But it’s also seriously deep. Jonah Goldberg of the National Review said, ... we have what many believe is the best cinematic moral allegory popular culture has produced in decades. Groundhog Day also contains an example of marketing gone terribly wrong. This travesty happens all too often in the real world, which means it’s what you want to avoid at all costs. A tale of a data-driven marketing fail In between his hedonism and subsequent despair, Phil decides to achieve a different goal. He begins romantically pursuing his news producer, Rita Hanson (played by Andie MacDowell). He starts by being uncharacteristically kind to her, and then asks her to describe her ideal man. Through day after day of similar encounters, he amasses an amazing amount of information about her. Phil finds out her favorite drink, and her ideal toast to drink it to.

J : Is there any carnivorous animal inhabiting within Pleiades and Sirius ? C : Not in those solar systems no. J : Ok, so the animals there all eat vegetables ? C : Yes, yes. J : Is Primary Anomaly simply energy with very low vibrational frequency or a sentient being ? C : It is not easy to describe, it is not a sentient being in the way that you would understand it, it is not just some energy, it is a principle, it’s a force field which does not have any higher purpose and it exists simply without any purpose. It is the opposite polarity of purpose. P : What is the exact relationship between chimera group and archons? C : Basically chimera group is the one who are issuing commands to the archons, the chimera group is the top of the food chain of the other side. P : As every moment is present in high dimensions, is it true that high dimensional beings have no concept of space and time ? C : I would not agree with the first statement, and also not with the second one.

Nature has a language that communicates itself through its sounds, scents and colors, textures and more….including its history and panoramic complexities of sentience we are at a loss to detect much less describe, and whose composition is communicated often so profoundly beautifully, countless poems throughout history have been written in humble attempts to write in words what all has been received. Many readers of such poems sense the beauty of them but it is mostly the writers response to their communion with Nature which is being conveyed through the poems and often apologetically for an egregiously inept ability to capture in writing all that was received. The reader cannot experience what has been telepathically conveyed to the writer, only what the writer has sensed and is trying to convey. This is second hand but it is still rich. Empathic Telepathy is more than transference of thought, this is a sad left brained (sans-sentience) explanation.

According to senior chartered accountant Dilip Lakhani, in a loan received the assessing officer can always question the credit worthiness of the lender or describe family jewellery (beyond 500 gms) as unexplained investment.The law to tax funds or investments whose source cannot be substantiated had always existed. But the law was changed post demonetization to empower the tax office to impose a significantly higher tax and penalty. Now, amid notices and searches by the department, fears are that the law may be misused."Though the income tax amendment was bought in to penalize tax evaders who had deposited the demonetized currency to take shelter under section 115BBE of the Income-tax Act, 1961, in genuine cases, this section would become difficult to comply with. Unexplained deposits/credits can only turn into explained deposits/credits if source is clearly explained, which in several cases may become extremely difficult to do," said Amit Maheshwari, Partner Ashok Maheshwary & Associates LLP.
