"You're not supposed to be sycophants, you're supposed to be skeptical," he said. "And having you in this building has made this work place better. It keeps us honest, makes us work harder." He has not always been so effusive. While defending the press, he has been a searing critic of shallow and flitting reporting. When he appeared on the national political stage a decade ago, Obama's oratory pulsed with vitality and hope. Today, the gray haired leader appeared like a man who was setting down a heavy burden and accepting of his place in history. He exits with approval ratings that stand at 60% – according to a CNN/ORC poll – the highest level since June 2009. On Tuesday, Trump dismissed the polls as "rigged" after a Washington Post-ABC News survey found his 40% approval rating was the lowest of any incoming president-elect since Jimmy Carter in 1977. — AFP

But the options have been brought forward. You still haven't answered my question. Are you saying that Labour in Scotland supports the contents of the paper that the Scottish Government produced, which suggested they should be some way found to allow Scotland to say in the single market even when Britain exits the European Union? There are lots of things paper recognises that we have to protect the UK single market, but we also need to engage properly, fully and adequately with this process.

Alfa claims that this version of the Stelvio can crack 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds. The Q4 all-wheel-drive system sends 100 per cent of the car’s torque to the rear axle in normal driving conditions, but an active transfer case and front differential allows up to 50 per cent of the power to be sent to the front wheels should it detect slippage. Image 4 of 8 Image 4 of 8 On the outside, the Stelvio first edition is characterised by 20-inch five branch alloy wheels, painted brake calipers, a chrome plated window frame plus Bi-Xenon headlamps. It also gets tinted rear windows and courtesy lights on the door handles. Around the back a large aluminium skid plate is embedded into the rear bumper, with two exhaust exits placed in each corner. The cabin is furnished with black full grain leather seats, electrically adjustable, heated and with memory functions.

K.'s vote to leave the E.U. in June 2016, here's exactly what a hard Brexit' means. The term is thought have been coined more than year before the referendum, in a Feb. 2015 report to HSBC clients by Simon Wells and Liz Martins. In the report, the economists distinguished between hard and soft exits from the E.U.; the former, they said, would be a huge risk and operationally complicated while the latter is less risky, but maintains much of the status quo. A hard Brexit arrangement means the U.K. will give up full access to the E.U's single market in order to have full control over its borders. It would also likely mean a withdrawal from the E.U.'s customs union . The single market is an economic arrangement between E.U. member states and a few others who agree to four fundamental freedoms: the free movement of services, goods, capital and people.

Less than a week before Inauguration Day, Eli Stein and his hackathon team spent their weekend poring over their laptops in hopes of coming up with something that might help improve American politics. Hunched in a circle of armchairs next to dozens of other teams, Stein and his group decided on a project they think might be useful: Waze, but for protests. "Moving forward, there's going to be a lot of protests, hopefully," Stein said of the impetus for his app, which would pull location data to show protesters entrances, exits and bathrooms at demonstrations like those happening across the country next weekend.

A shooting attack at an electronic music festival in Mexico's Caribbean coast resort of Playa del Carmen on Monday left five people dead, including two Canadians, an Italian and a Colombian, authorities said. The attorney general of Quintana Roo state said that several of the dead appear to have been part of the security detail at the 10-day BPM electronic music festival. Miguel Angel Pech said the shooting occurred about 2:30 a.m. at the Blue Parrot nightclub, one of the BPM Festival's venues in Playa del Carmen, just south of Cancun. Pech said a lone gunman apparently entered the nightclub and began to exchange fire with another person inside. Festival security personnel tried to stop the shooting and came under fire. Pech said it was not any kind of terrorist attack. But the shooting apparently caused a rush of people heading for the exits at the beach-side club, and the lone female victim was apparently killed during the stampede.
