When Billions first aired on TV in January 2016, the main takeaway was that in the hunt for power and money, you sometimes have to break a few rules. It was a Machiavellian world set on the stage of a more familiar Wall Street. But that was way back when that world was just good TV. But fast forward to January 2017, when Donald Trump's presidency is surrounded with accusations of conflicts of interest at every turn.

PLYMOUTH Argyle's on-loan winger Matt Kennedy is learning fast about the rough and tumble of League Two football and has the bruises to prove it. The 22-year-old has only played four times for the promotion-chasing Pilgrims but is getting used to the heavy tackling on him from opposing sides. Kennedy was also an injury doubt for Argyle's away game against Hartlepool United on Saturday because he had pulled a muscle in his back. But, after taking painkillers, he played at Victoria...

To mark its eighth birthday, WhatsApp is giving status messages a photo, video, and GIF-infused boost. To mark its eighth birthday, WhatsApp is giving status messages a photo, video, and GIF-infused boost. Eight years ago, the first lines of code in what would eventually become WhatsApp were being written. Originally, all the app let you do was post a status—a way to tell your friends that you were at work or traveling during the day and would be unreachable. Eventually, founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton decided to add messaging capabilities as well, and the app evolved into the powerhouse that it is today. Read Full Story

Possibly as a reward, "Color Pictures of a Marigold," one of the songs from Pocketwatch , was recorded by Grohl and Novoselic toward the end of the In Utero sessions, and was released as "Marigold," a B-side to the "Heart Shaped Box" single. It would end up being the only Nirvana song that had no input from Cobain. 25. COBAIN EMBELLISHED THE LEADBELLY GUITAR STORY BY ABOUT $445,000. Before his classic cover of Leadbelly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?" on MTV Unplugged , Cobain was provoked by Novoselic to talk about Leadbelly's guitar. "This guy representing the Leadbelly estate wants to sell me Leadbelly's guitar for $500,000," Cobain said. " I even asked David Geffen personally if he would buy it for me. Wouldn't do it." It's possible that Cobain was trying to pull a fast one on the CEO of his label, because a few months earlier he wondered to a New York Times reporter if buying the guitar for $55,000 was a "punk move" or an "anti-punk move.

He urged the church to become “militant” and “fight for our beliefs against this new barbarity that’s starting, that will completely eradicate everything that we’ve been bequeathed over the last 2,000, 2,500 years.” Fast forward to February 2017. With Trump in office, Bannon has now manoeuvred himself onto the National Security Council , influencing the administration’s national security and foreign policy. Meanwhile Trump is speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, where he tells the audience that he will “totally destroy” the Johnson Amendment , a 60-year-old tax code law that helps separate religion and politics in the United States. Trump’s speech was a vision of religious nationalism , dominated by the two key themes of religion and militarism and intended to tee up a forthcoming religious freedom executive order.

Footage from airport cameras purportedly showing the assault on the half-brother of the North Korean leader emerged on Monday (February 20) as a row between Malaysia and North Korea escalated over the handling of the investigation into the killing of Kim Jong Nam. CCTV footage, released by Japanese broadcaster Fuji TV, purported to show Kim Jong Nam being assaulted in Kuala Lumpur International Airport by a woman, who is believed to have wiped a fast-acting poison on his face. The grainy CCTV images, posted on several websites, showed Kim, wearing a light-coloured jacket and trousers and with a backpack on one shoulder, heading for an automatic check-in counter in the airport departure hall. A woman approaches Kim from behind on the left and another - identified by Fuji TV as a Vietnamese woman, wearing a white shirt - walks rapidly up behind him from his right, before what appears to be a scuffle takes place.

Conte indicated Luiz has a strong chance to be ready to face Swansea, per Metro 's Evan Bartlett . Yet if Luiz can't go, Conte will need to trust youngsters Kurt Zouma or Nathan Ake to take his place. Clement will have the bigger concerns, though, especially when it comes to how he will stop Chelsea's lighting-fast counter-attacks. Nobody is breaking with the pace, ingenuity and class the Blues are producing this season. Striker Diego Costa usually rounds off most moves, but supporting forward Pedro is also a major threat. The former Barcelona man is beginning to find his feet after initially struggling with life in England's top flight under previous managers Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink . Pedro has scored 10 times across league and cup action since Conte took the reins, according to WhoScored .com . Expect Pedro, Costa and Co. to have too much quality in forward areas for Swansea to resist for long.
