However, a few hours before Trump's address Obama tweeted one final time as President. In those 140 characters he left us with more to think about than any of Trump's paint-by-numbers opening Presidential remarks. I'm still asking you to believe - not in my ability to bring about change, but in yours. I believe in change because I believe in you. President Obama (@POTUS44) January 20, 2017 With that statement, Obama proves he genuinely cares about the people of America. He still plans to inspire the generation that grew up with him as their President and to inspire change however he can. It's a call to action, and one we should all heed. Let's do everything we can to ensure that these next four years are as good as they can be for the entire country. And to really showcase the difference between former President Obama and new President Trump, here's a look at their respective POTUS Twitter profiles.

It's all change. Over recent months, he's got used to receiving early-morning phone calls from the Scottish Government, day after day after day, asking how ScotRail is performing. That's one part of the job he won't be missing. "Radical" changes to the way maternity services are delivered in Scotland are proposed in a new report. A nationwide review of provision says every woman should have a dedicated midwife to ensure continuity of care, with some consolidation of specialist neonatal services to improve chances for very premature babies.

Some users will likely find the default color temperature too cool, but calibration options help users customize things just the way they like, and I'll cover that a bit more below. Vertical Orientation In addition to the standard horizontal display orientation, the 27UD88 also easily converts to vertical orientation for those who prefer that type of setup, a feature not offered by the UltraFine 5K display. Again, no tools are needed and all you need to do is make sure the display is high enough to ensure clearance and rotate it 90 degrees. From there, it's just a quick menu selection in Apple's Displays preferences to switch over to the vertical display orientation. Build Quality and Looks Looks are a subjective quality, and we've seen a range of responses about the UltraFine 5K with its metal foot and matte black plastic enclosure with fairly substantial bezels.

That is the example and the inspiration of the midwives and of Miriam, according to our scriptures and according to our Midrash. If a harsh decree ever threatens to remove a protection or to create a vulnerability, it is our duty to step in, personally, so as to ensure that care and goodness flow where, by divine decree, they must. That is not to say that we are to give up the work of influencing government. Witness Moses in Pharaoh's throne-room in the upcoming stories of our Torah. However, in the meantime, we are not to play in to the hand of leaders whose orders run contrary to our values - as Moses' father and as the midwives might have done had in not been for a countervailing and prophetic sense of what was right. In 1951, even before the recognized inception of what would become known as the Civil Rights Movement, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote in an essay entitled, "To Be a Jew, What is It?" -- "It is our destiny to live for what is more than ourselves.

For example, do a Twitter search. Group together a list of people by either location or tweet content. Ask them a personal question via Twitter. Often times, direct messages don't work. Instead, send an actual tweet. More often than not, you can get a conversation going. While the roots of this are in automation, you will need a team of social media gurus to keep the conversation flowing. 4. Keep Up To Date Lists It's imperative that your lists are organized by campaign, and your contacts are actually interested. That way, when you're ready to target a sale, you're targeting the right audience. If someone requests to be unsubscribed, don't continue to send emails-it looks like spam. 5. Stay On The Same Page The marketing and sales teams have to work together to ensure that the content is always on the same page. If the sales team is doing one thing and the marketing another, spammy, robotic emails or marketing strategies are sure to ensue.

The move is a welcome one, and is part of the wider Zeitgeist of connecting up health systems, and health data, so that people, and indeed researchers, have access to all of the data in one place. "People move around more and more therefore data about their health should always be with them. This way they're able to use the best services from different countries, or live where they desire, without the loss of important healthcare services ," said the Deputy Secretary General on E-services Development and Innovation Ain Aaviksoo . Securing the data The team behind the project are focusing heavily on security to ensure that the privacy of patients is not compromised, but they are steadfast that the first step of any privacy agenda should be ensuring people have control over their own data. "Ensuring privacy and security starts with giving people real control over their healthcare data.

99 million records of visitors to the White House over the past eight years. In conjunction with the transition, those records, along with the small number of remaining visitor records that have yet to be processed, will be transmitted to the National Archives and Records Administration, White House spokeswoman Brandi Hoffine told POLITICO. In order to ensure that the records that have yet to be processed are available to the public in a timely manner, we are working with the National Archives to develop a process for publishing the remaining records as early as possible, allowing individuals to review these visitor records as they did in the normal course during the Obama Administration, she added. National Archives spokeswoman Miriam Kleiman confirmed that personnel there are working to resolve the issue of the late-term visitor data.

No, I am not talking about the Mrs. Robinson of the 1967 film The Graduate. I am talking about a far better role model. No matter what our political views, we can all admire and celebrate the grandmother-in-chief, Marian Lois Robinson, the Chicago south side mother who made sure her bright and talented children went to the best schools, enabling them to fulfill their potential. She is Michelle Obama's mother, Barack Obama's mother-in-law, and grandmother of Malia and Sasha. She is the First Grandmother of the nation. Like millions of other grandmothers in this country, she flew in for the family crises to ensure that her granddaughters received the love, support and discipline required to succeed. She freed her children, Michelle and Barack, to be available to the nation. She wiped her granddaughters' tears, helped with homework, and put in perspective the ways their parents were demonized as devils and honored as gods.

It’s crisp and pure, yet gives enough feedback to properly engage you with the R’s darty front end. Image 3 of 22 Image 3 of 22 Haldex four-wheel drive coupled with an XDS+ torque vectoring system help ensure that the R estate does a very good job of getting its power to the road. The front axle resists push admirably well and by backing the car into a corner on the brakes the rear end can be persuaded to take on some attitude, although it’ll never do so under power alone. That supple and smooth ride also works wonders when you want your Golf R Estate to function as a practical machine. Switchable driving modes allow you to control steering assistance, throttle response and damping rates and all can be dialled back when you dont fancy driving the car in anger. All in all, it’s a hugely formidable dynamic package, with very little lost to the added heft of the estate.

Israeli magician Uri Geller, right, holds a bent key belonging to a British journalist, during a demonstration of his powers of telepathy and psychokinesis. Geller worked with the CIA for years in an attempt to exploit his powers' for CIA purposes. Oct. 30, 1974. (AP/Dave Caulkin) (REPORT) The juicy bits of the CIA’s massive document dump may have centered on their overt use of torture against detainees and the internal debates underpinning that policy, but it’s far from the only thing in there that warrants a second look. The documents also include substantial information about CIA obsession with UFO sightings, policies for using invisible ink, and their determined investigation into magicians. Reports on the UFOs described some 20% of sightings as “unexplained,” and sought more cooperation from the Pentagon in documentation of such sightings, particularly pushing to ensure that all high-ranking Air Force commanders were briefed on the rules for reporting about them.

The support of the president and his henchwoman was the driving force behind the coup. Clinton is never one to shy away from an opportunity to boast about the amount of blood on her hands. In a passage which removed from later editions of her bookHard Choices,” she rather brazenly admitted : “In the subsequent days [after the coup] I spoke with my counterparts around the hemisphere, including Secretary [Patricia] Espinosa in Mexico. We strategized on a plan to restore order in Honduras and ensure that free and fair elections could be held quickly and legitimately, which would render the question of Zelaya moot and give the Honduran people a chance to choose their own future.” Obama’s top diplomat was instrumental in installing a right-wing government backed by the wealthiest business interests in Honduras and powerful players in Washington.
