( John Wall deserves credit for all he is doing at both ends, but give me Irving over Bradley Beal, Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Isaiah Thomas or Al Horford .) On paper, the Washington Wizards , Toronto Raptors and Celtics just don't inspire enough faith for anyone to assume the Cavaliers won't make another Finals. But as great as Irving is, Cleveland's hopes of repeating still boil down more to how dominant James is going to be. If he doesn't fall short of his best effort, the Cavs will indeed be a lot better after the regular season ends. That next gear is not a sure thing for the Wizards or Celtics or Raptors. The Raptorswhom an NBA insider described at the start of January as " one-and-a-half players away " from contendingare closest to finding out if they have that gear because they were shrewdly aggressive in trading for Serge Ibaka and PJ Tucker in February.

Some on the right in her party want to tear up the vast majority of the rules being copied and pasted into UK law under the Great Repeal Bill. It was part of the fire that burned within their Eurosceptic faith. The Telegraph campaign against red tape is egging them on. One veteran EU diplomat says: don't forget that question number one is do the EU27 want to have a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement with the UK at all? There is no automaticity. I mentioned that the EU politicians and diplomats follow our newspapers. They also follow the twists and turns of UK politics closely and their overall impression, putting to one side the o l ive branches inserted into yesterday's letter, is that that Theresa May has tended to lean into the Right of her party in her first eight months in office. She has also tended to pay close attention to the campaigns of the Daily Mail.

The Rohingya Muslim insurgency, whose sneak attacks in October killed nine border guard officers in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State, issued a detailed list of demands this week that struck a far more pragmatic note while describing the use of violence in the past as self-defense. Ata Ullah, the commander of the Faith Movement, now rebranded as the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), signed the March 29 list, which has been verified and seems to have been timed to the anniversary of Aung San Suu Kyi’s first year in power. Arakan is another name for Rakhine. A new presentation In a preamble to the 20 demands, the ARSA said it does not associate with any terrorist organizations, eschews attacks against civilians and religious minorities, and wants to stateloud and clear” that its “defensive attacks” are only aimed at the “oppressive Burmese regime.

Trump said in a statement on Wednesday. “Throughout this process I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role,” she said. Ms. Trump’s title will be assistant to the president. Her husband, Jared Kushner, has the title of senior adviser. “We are pleased that Ivanka Trump has chosen to take this step in her unprecedented role as first daughter and in support of the president,” a spokeswoman for the president said in an email. “Ivanka’s service as an unpaid employee furthers our commitment to ethics, transparency, and compliance and affords her increased opportunities to lead initiatives driving real policy benefits for the American public that would not have been available to her previously.” Read more here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/29/us/politics/ivanka-trump-federal-employee-white-house.

After two unsuccessful attempts, Narine was forced to screen the movie in his own living room and to a much smaller audience. Sunita Viswanath said she jumped up when she first read this story that morning. As a progressive Hindu, she feels strongly about any kind of censorship and thought Narine had been treated unjustly by his own people. This man is totally Hindu; his family has a temple. You dont get much more Hindu than that, she said. In response, Viswanath co-founded Sadhana , the Coalition of Progressive Hindus. We seek to mobilize Hindus to speak up whenever justice is denied, said Viswanath. The word sadhana means daily spiritual practice in Hindi. For Viswanath and her collaborators, it is faith in action. The platform is committed to a vision of social justice, which the members believe is at the heart of Hinduism.

Ivanka Trump, daughter of president Donald Trump, is to take an official, unpaid job as his assistant . That's Assistant to the President, not Assistant President. In a statement, the White House said it was "pleased that Ivanka Trump has chosen to take this step in her unprecedented role as first daughter". Ms Trump said in her statement that she had been "working in good faith with the White House Counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role". Ethics experts cried foul when it emerged last week that Ms Trump was to be given a West Wing office and security clearance, without formally joining the administration. You're wondering where the bottom is. There is no bottom.

She was present when her father received Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in January, and earlier this month took part in a round-table discussion with President Trump and Chancellor Angela Merkel during the German leader's visit to the White House. Her involvement with her father's official duties has raised eyebrows in some quarters over possible conflicts of interest. But Ivanka, who was part of her father's business empire and ran an eponymous fashion line, said those qualms are unfounded. "I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the president in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules, and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House Office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees," she said in a statement. "Throughout this process I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House Counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role," she said.

this, a lot of them have lost faith in democracy, some of them haven't even voted for years, but they gave it a go for something they believed mattered. Today is the day they can see it the most powerful people in the country doing what they asked, and I think it's a hugely powerful thing, even if you decided the right and wrongs, personal preferences on the use of not.
