Civilian casualties are a fact of life in this sort of situation,” the Pentagon chief added, boasting that Weve had success on the battlefield. The US and a number of its allies have been pounding parts of Iraq and Syria since 2014. The campaign has yet to yield any meaningful achievements besides destroying hospitals and other critical infrastructure.

And then today, two years on, we hear that ISIS is promising terror attacks in the following weeks, for Ramadan in Manila, so ISIS is in the Philippines. RD: Yes, I’ll answer you… think they were just angling for recognition. But nobody was really recognized by ISIS. They were angling and hoping for recognition. And they sported themselves as part of ISIS. It was only early this year when they appointed and anointed their leader, Isnilon Hapilon. And from the southern tip of the Mindanao, he is now in central Mindanao. And that is why I said, you know, when you fight revolutionaries, they are not really in numbers. It’s not an army. It’s a group of men dedicated to destroying human life. If I had to get into a fight, I would need the high-precision arms to really hit the target and avoid civilian casualties. MF: Are you going to buy weapons from Russia? RD: I know that Russia has it.

Sorry, human Go players, Google's AlphaGo AI is just out of your league right now. At the Future of Go Summit event, held in Wuzhen, China from May 23-27, AlphaGo has won every single match , going 3:0 against human Go champion Ke Jie, and sweeping the floor with five human Go masters who teamed up against it. And just like the biggest champions, AlphaGo is retiring while on top. SEE ALSO: The king of Go is no longer a human According to Demis Hassabis, CEO and co-founder of DeepMind (the Google-owned company that created AlphaGo), the AI has pretty much proven all it needed to in the Go arena.

He did not "discover" Troy until Frank Calvert, U.S. vice consul to Turkey, showed him where it was. But Cline also covers lesser-known but interesting digs, including the excavation of the H. L. Hunley , a Confederate submarine found off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina. The Hunley’s eight crew members all drowned at their posts but only two have been identified, one being the commander, Lieutenant George E. Dixon. Dixon had carried in his pocket a gold coin that had saved his life in the Battle of Shiloh. An engraved gold coin was found at the site of the submarine and a nearby skeleton "had a healed bullet wound in the left upper thigh, with pieces of lead and flecks of gold still embedded in his femur." Excavations, then, can reveal personal stories, but they can also become political. ISIS has been destroying archaeological sites of tremendous importance while also selling artifacts on the black market.

As was mentioned in previous articles, the powers that should not be work together to achieve their goals and we should too. We can develop networks of support for all things, from information sharing and comprehension to life skill development to healing and restoration of humanity and the planet. With cooperation and dedication to truth on our side, almost any obstacle can be overcome— we're in this together whether we like it or not . I have made connections with several big names towards this end, and look forward to releasing updates soon. Contact in the Desert Finally, I will be attending the Contact in the Desert (CID) event this year in Joshua Tree, California. I hope to do some modest media coverage while I am there, as time allows. And I will be meeting up with a friend and colleague whom you all know, Jordan Sather of Destroying the Illusion .

He does, however, seem to know in an intuitive way what works for him, what gets him things he wants, as he has his whole professional life. Hes called his method truthful hyperbole. And regardless of what he himself understands, there are certainly people around him who do grasp all too well the usefulness of that ultimate motive, of convincing the public that facts are not all that stubborn after all. The Memory Hole Supplying alternative facts is one way of destroying memory. Erasing real facts is another. In Orwells 1984, there was a slot in the wall at the Ministry of Truth where Winston Smith worked, a memory hole, into which inconvenient documents could be fed to be consumed forever by a huge basement furnace. There are, it seems, plenty of memory holes in Washington these days. Since January, the Trump administration has been systematically removing from federal websites inconvenient information on subjects as diverse as climate change and occupational health and safety, and replacing it with anodyne messages.

PEOPLE think they know Bobby Madden. If you frequent social media or some of the more jaundiced Celtic supporter web forums out there, you would know that Saturday's William Hill Scottish Cup final referee is a Rangers season ticket holder hell-bent on destroying the Parkhead side's hopes of a treble, with exhibit A being his non-award of last minute penalty for a Clint Hill challenge on Leigh Griffiths at Celtic Park in March. If you are approaching the weekend's game from an Aberdeen perspective, you would know that he has no love for the Dons either, as witnessed by his decision to disallow a perfectly-good goal at Tannadice in March 2016, then send Derek McInnes off for having the temerity to protest about it.

He doesnt start with an apocalyptic description of future impacts when he talks to people about climate change, but, for some audiences, University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor of Environmental Studies Calvin DeWitt does turn to the book of Revelations. “I’ll have a white-out pen in my pocket, and I’ll have them read Revelation chapter 11, verse 18. It’s a description of the sounding of the last trumpet, as you hear in Handel’s ‘Messiah,' and the end verse says, ‘The time has come for destroying those who destroy the Earth,’” DeWitt told me. “And so, I say, ‘I have a white-out pen here for anyone who would like to correct their Bible.’” DeWitt sees his faith as fundamental to, rather than in conflict with, his concern about climate change.
