She had a titanium jaw implant put in back in September 2016, but since then she has had to have two further procedures, and cannot open her mouth wider than a finger width at the moment. She was attacked in 2006. That's over a decade of agony and suffering. We owe it to people like her, and everybody else attacked just doing their job, to stand up and send a message that attacks on NHS staff are contemptible and we will do everything in our power to stop them.

For some, the scene might have been a perfect metaphor for our changing relationship with experts. The emperor revealed to have been naked all along. So did Michael Gove put his finger on something no one had yet noticed? Or did he help to cause it? If only there was an expert we could ask.

After all, when we were elected in 1992 and John Major became the Prime Minister, I don't recall he turned around and said I really don't have a lot of time for the British voters. They seem to have made the wrong decision. I think he accepted their decision. Thank you very much. Thank you. Michael Gove's claim that "people in this country have had enough of experts" was one of the most memorable lines of the EU referendum campaign. But was it just a throwaway soundbite or did Mr Gove put his finger on a profound change? Are we really less willing to trust the people who were once supposed to know best? And have we come to distrust all experts or just the kind who claim to know how the economy will behave? Our editor Ian Katz went in search of some answers.

Damian Green, ITV News, Leicester. Like everything else at the moment, you couldn't make the Leicester story up, could you? Finally, if there was an Oscar for the biggest foul-up on live Television, it would surely be on the mantlepiece tonight of the organisers of the overnight awards ceremony in Hollywood. The finger seems to be pointing at the two accountants, celebrities themselves now if they weren't before, who count the votes and hand out the envelopes. Their firm, Price Waterhouse Cooper, did £28 billion of business last year. No doubt their many clients will be hoping this was a momentary lapse from that hallmark of any sucessful accountancy firm. Attention to detail.

Let's make of most of this. Let's do the best. A former Prime Minister should have more faith in the British people. He points his finger at the Brexiteers who shout down disagreement, who claim to want Parliament to have sovereignty and have taken issue with anyone that has asked about amendments, questioned how Brexit will happen.

We'll speak to those who think Mr Gove was putting his finger on something. And, of course, the Oscars. I'm sorry. There's a mistake. Moonlight you won Best Picture. No, not that, this... The Oscar winner Best Documentary is about the civilian rescue workers in Syria.

And I think that as sustainability and transformation plans move forward there would be some merit in making sure that in time they do turn into accountable care organisations so we can get a proper join up between the different parts of the system, so that that sort of finger-pointing between different parts of the system becomes a thing of the past. The last area I want to talk about years ago while the occupancy rate has gone up from 84 to 87% and sometimes operating theatres are remaining idle, is something I would like reflected on.

The device has three times higher efficiency than previously used setups, and fits on a finger tip, thanks to a unique software package developed in Warsaw during the design stage.

Now there is a lot of finger-pointing. And whoever mixed up the envelopes, I don't fancy their future employment chances! But it means he will never ever forget who won best picture at this year's Oscars ceremony. Some people can't even remember who won last year! And Jordan Horrowitz, the producer of La La Land, who took charge of the whole thing, maybe he should produce the Oscars next year because he seems to know what he is doing! He rescued it and handed it to Moonlight.

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - Baltimore outfielder Michael Bourn hasn't played football since his sophomore year in high school. But it's a pigskin injury that's preventing him from playing this spring for the Orioles. On Friday, the speedy 34-year-old broke his right ring finger catching a football at a workout. Bourn, ...

Speaking of ports, the larger model features a pair of USB-C ports, a number that really should have been the minimum, not the maximum, if people are expected to use this as a laptop replacement. Other differentiating factors, like the screen technology are slightly easier to swallow if you're on a strict budget, but still worth knowing about. The 12-inch model features a Super AMOLED display that has a 2,160 x 1,440 resolution and 3:2 aspect ratio, which is sort of an oddity for a Windows computer. Usually, we find this screen ratio in a few of the best Chromebooks, like the Samsung Chromebook Pro to name an example. On the other hand, the 10.6-inch model features a FHD 1080p LCD screen. Lastly, the S-Pen makes a surprise appearance, its first for a Windows product. And thankfully, it does more than just poke and prod at things that your finger can do nearly just as accurately.

Its an attractive phone to look at, with the screen offering some deep contrast ratios and the smooth back fitting well in the hand. Its only 720p, but with the octa-core Mediatek processor pumping along with 3GB of RAM alongside it should be kinder on the 2300mAh battery. The headphone jack and USB Type-C ports feel well positioned, and the whole thing flicks along under the finger pretty well in tests, sitting atop Android 7.0. The power button protrudes on the side of the phone, in a move that echoes Sony phones from 2014 - theres not fingerprint scanner, so theres no need for the flat power button. The camera is a big upgrade to the smaller phone, with the same 23MP processor from the Z5 series of 2015. Its a competent sensor, and capable of lighting up in under a second - its not ground-breaking, but the for the price itll be attractive.

The fingerprint scanner remains in the power key on the right-hand side of the device (unless youre in the US, where its still inexplicably missing) and you finger falls right on the spot to open the phone. However, when it comes to design youre going to notice one thing with the XZ Premium: its so flipping glossy. The mirrored finish is most noticeable in the chrome variant, although youll still be able to check out your reflection in the black/dark blue version too. As such, this is one of the smudgiest, most fingerprint-sucking phones weve ever used. But thats to be expected given the mirrored finish, and the handset polishes up easily enough. As is the way of phones in 2017, the connector on the bottom of the phone is USB Type-C, and thankfully theres a headphone jack on the top.

The golf writers have always been a fairly chivalrous bunch so it’s perhaps no surprise that the annual blether with the heid honchos at the Royal & Ancient is commonly known as ‘The Round Table’. Of course, this knight-like, Arthurian elegance tends to fly out the window when the complimentary finger buffet arrives and the various trays are frantically ravaged with all the ferocity of a shoal of Piranha fish stripping a stricken ox down to its bare bones. The feeding frenzy of said Piranhas is marginally more civilised, however.

Leicester City's players are fighting back at claims they paved the way for the sacking of manager Claudio Ranieri. Ranieri's shock sacking has proven to be an incredibly unpopular decision among a large number City fans, media, pundits and football fans alike. The finger of blame has been pointed at some of the City squad, with newspaper reports they held talks with the club's owners to vent their dissatisfaction.

There’s no specific language to tell you the level or depth of pain – we can only visualise it from people’s expressions. “When artists like Stelarc engage people, the burden is given to the spectator who witnesses such extreme body art. While he appears to be in pain, he is actually relaxed and relieved,” explained the 22-year-old.

It's not the fault of Warren Beatty. Or Faye Dunaway. . You can't blame them. They were given the wrong card. I'm afraid the finger of blame right now is heading towards Brian and Martha, these two shadowy figures in the wings. They had the briefcases with the 24 cards and envelopes. Two identical sets. Emma Stone has the original in her hands.

He's talked about specifically news organisations like CNN and the New York Times as fake news, they are barring people from the press room. So the dinner itself is just another example of the middle finger that Donald Trump is giving to the press. Contempt for the press is one thing, potential suppression is another. We missed the very last bit of what you said, potential is what of the press? Potential suppression is another.
