But that's OK, but do get in touch about Piegate as well. Get in touch on Facebook, Twitter or else. Welcome to my world. Piegate is the biggest story of the day. But not everybody wants to hear about that. I think everybody wants to hear about it because it cuts to the PC mania that we now have to endure in this country. We are trying to passion sucked out of you tomorrow.

Both by-elections seen as something as a referendum on Jeremy Corbyn's leadership of the Labour Party. In Stoke it has been Labour since 1950 when the constituency was first conceived. Things have changed. We have had Brexit. UKIP think they can do well here, in a constituency where more people voted to leave the Eu where more people voted to leave the EU as a percentage than anywhere else in the UK.

The rest, as they say, is history, and thanks to Chalmers Johnsons appropriation of a classic CIA term of spy craft, we now know it as blowback . That was a major turning point for the U.S. military. Before 1979, few of its troops had served in the region. In the ensuing decades, America bombed, invaded, raided, sent its drones to kill in, or attacked Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq again (and again), Somalia (again and again), Libya again, Iraq once more, and now Syria as well. Before 1979, few if any American military personnel died in the Greater Middle East. Few have died anywhere else since. 2003 and After: Fantasies and Reality Who wouldnt agree that the 2003 invasion of Iraq signified a major turning point both in the history of the Greater Middle East and in our own? Nonetheless, its legacy remains highly contested.

Many people begin disarming between. But it is something that the Iranians agree to. But what is interesting is whether or not present Rye Hunt is re-elected, which I think will depend on the economy more than anything else, at least we have elections in Iraq. At least we do not know who is going to be elected.

So you are fuelling conflict too. Well, I think that's an extraordinary, dangerous accusation. The government in Afghanistan is a Sunni government. The majority of the country is Sunni. Afghanistan has good relations with Iran but poor has good relations with Iran but from Isis and no one else.

It provided him with a chance to show employees his resolve in righting the ship. "If the world, and Uber specifically, takes one thing away from this, it should be that this is not an isolated incident," Aimee Lucido, a software engineer at Uber, wrote in a personal blog post. "I think this is disgusting and appalling and horrifying and yet I am not surprised at all. In fact, I'm most surprised at how surprised everyone else seems to be." Former US Attorney General Eric Holder is working with Uber to lead an investigation into Fowler's allegations. Kalanick wrote in an e-mail to employees Monday that Holder and Tammy Albarran, a partner at the law firm Covington & Burling along with Holder, "will conduct an independent review into the specific issues relating to the workplace environment raised by Susan Fowler, as well as diversity and inclusion at Uber more broadly.

" "So when you talk about coverage, we have a free press," he concluded. "We have the right for people to say and do what they believe. But at some point, it is incumbent upon people to try to get it right. And in that case (in Mar-a-Lago last Saturday), it wasnt even attempted. It was a jump to conclusion by many to say that there must be something else going on when, in fact, we were able to provide a very, very clear tick-tock (a straightforward, chronological explanation) as to what had happened." The controversy over the White House viewing the press as its foe began after Trump said in a tweet last week that the "fake news media is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!” The statement represented an escalation in Trump’s long-running quarrel with the media, which he has referred to as “dishonest,” "fake” and as "the opposition party.

The Lexus GS-F? It uses a naturally-aspirated V8 that only makes 471 hp, fixed dampers and steel brakes. So the Lexus is off to a bad start. However, on the snowy Welsh roads, the BMW M5 struggles to put down its power. All of that twin-turbocharged torque makes the M5 a bit sketchy on those roads and, to be honest, I applaud Harris for driving that monster on roads those treacherous roads. On the other hand, the Lexus' less torquey engine and more linear power band makes it easier to drive in such bad conditions. Admittedly in normal conditions things might be different but they weren't normal conditions so it's all we have to go by. On the inside of each, it's clear which cabin is better the BMW M5's. While the Lexus GS-F has an interesting and incredibly well-built cabin, though it's a disaster, ergonomically. It's just a giant mishmash of weird buttons that don't seem to make sense and the computer mouse-like infotainment controller is the worst in the business and actually makes having such a system more of a burden than anything else.

Speaking for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation at the “Financial Inclusion Forum” in Washington, organized by the Treasury Department and USAID on December 1, 2015, Bill Gates said (min 17) : “Full digitalization of the economy may happen in developing countries faster than anywhere else. It is certainly our goal to make it happen in the next three years in the large developing countries. We have very significant efforts in Nigeria, Pakistan and India, (and) a dozen other countries, where we work with the central banks to make sure that the right kind of transaction switch is available…(min 20)…We worked directly with the central bank there (India) over the last three years and they created a new type of authorization called the payments bank, and those customers will be able to use their mobile phones to perform basic financial transactions.

The American public are not to blame for this evil. The American aristocracy are. It’s an oligarchy gone mad. Trump was never a principled person. He never really resisted, at all. He caved after only three weeks on the job. Clearly, then, he’s not only a psychopath; he is a fool. Trump promised to ‘drain the swamp’. Instead, he’s feeding the alligators. He’s serving the higher powers, even though they despise and would like to destroy him. He’s obsequious for their support; he has decided that they control the public even more than the President of the U.S. can. He threw in the towel within his first three weeks on the job. Perhaps he’s just trying to avoid being overthrown . He never even tried the “bully pulpit.” The con is over, and he doesnt know anything else than that tactic. He never really cared about the truth, nor about the public.

Odintcova responded Sunday to Cayan Groups announcement, claiming that she should be compensated for revealing the towers faulty security. We deserve a reward for disclosing weaknesses in the security of that building, Odintcova told United Arab Emirates-based newspaper The National. We were at the rooftop of that building without any evil intentions, however someone else could have come out there to commit suicide or an act of terrorism. Local police have summoned the model to sign an agreement stating that she promises to never repeat any dangerous, life-threatening act in Dubai, the newspaper reported. Odintcova said she would sign the agreement if the police mailed it to her. She also promised to never repeat the stunt, or similar ones, again. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

-- blown. Brexit seems to have given a lot of power to people on the hard right and the far right and I think that's problematic because they don't represent the interests of the majority of people in our country. Getting issues like, you know, schools funding, things like that, on the agenda can be really difficult because Brexit is sweeping everything else out the way.

Ask Trevor Noah and he'll tell you: President Donald Trump has been a blessing for comedy. Noah's brand of comedy in particular. Trump's election has been nothing but a momentum-changer for the comedian from South Africa, boosting The Daily Show 's ratings up 7% from this time last year, according to Nielsen, which says he ended January with 1.4 million total average nightly viewers. But the heir to Jon Stewart's nightly political sature has a lot else going on, too: His book Born a Crime launched in November, just after the election. And his first ever Netflix special titled Trevor Noah: Afraid of the Dark debuted Tuesday. Read more... More about Daily Show , Trevor Noah , Comedy Specials , Comedy , and Tv

Sam Altman, the president of the Silicon Valley seed accelerator Y Combinator, went on the road to listen to 100 Trump voters from around the country. He says the TL;DR quote is this: “You all can defeat Trump next time, but not if you keep mocking us, refusing to listen to us, and cutting us out. It’s Republicans, not Democrats, who will take Trump down.” Here are a few things that Trump supporters told Altman that they liked about Trump: “He is anti-abortion.” Note: This sentiment came up a lot. A number of people I spoke to said they didnt care about anything else he did and would always vote for whichever candidate was more anti-abortion. “I like that he puts the interests of Americans first. American policy needs to be made from a position of how Americans benefit from it, as that is the role of government.” “He is anti-immigration.” Note: This sentiment came up a lot.

The same dynamics (or lack thereof) are reflected in a recent piece by Chris Hamilton, in which he argues that global growth -as expressed by growth in energy consumption- has largely been non-existent for years, other than in China. Moreover, China has added a stunning amount of debt to achieve that growth, and since its population growth is about to stagnate -and then turn negative-, this was pretty much all she wrote. Global Growth is All About China…Nothing but China Since 2000, China has been the nearly singular force for growth in global energy consumption and economic activity. However, this article will make it plain and simple why China is exiting the spotlight and unfortunately, for global economic growth, there is no one else to take center stage. To put things into perspective I’ll show this using four very inter-related variables…(1) total energy consumption, (2) core population (25-54yr/olds) size and growth, (3) GDP (flawed as it is), and (4) debt.
