Watch me ― Ill do the fingering, David says as Walter toots the mouthpiece. If the audience at your theater doesnt hoot and holler in response, demand a refund. Or, rather, give it a few more seconds, because David says You have symphonies in you, brother and plants a peck on Walters lips. For one brief, shining moment, its touching, watching David admire someone (something?) who was also born that way. Alas, a romantic comedy this is not. Davids smooch is a segue for his battle royale with Walter and the other Covenant crew members who havent already been executed. We just happen to get an outré display of delicious android queer-baiting along the way. Through it all, Fassbender is so on top of his game that Alien: Covenant can stand up against his finest screen performances (Hunger, Shame, Jane Eyre, 12 Years a Slave, Slow West).

Heather Booth doesnt look like a revolutionary. She sits demurely on a sofa, dressed simply in black, fingering a silver necklace. She speaks softly, selecting her words with care and enunciating cleanly. Dignity. Respect. Community. But something comes over her when she begins to talk about helping people organize to make their world better. The sweet smile fades. She sits up straighter. Her voice tightens, the words come faster. Power . Together. Act. She strikes a gently curled fist into an open palm . IM-pact. Booth, 71, is one of the nations most influential organizers for progressive causes. Inside almost every liberal drive over the past five decades ― for fair pay, equal justice, abortion rights, workers rights, voter rights, civil rights, immigration rights, child care ― you will find Booth. But you may have to look hard.

Today, mercifully, none of these things is true; the company has the capacity it needs to meet demand, and its cars have embraced new technology so that they appeal to young as well as old. Surely, I suggest to Wells, the century-old traditions of Morgan must remain a big constraint for anyone seeking to shape the models of the future, mustnt they? But he argues the other way. “They bring us freedom,” he insists. “Aesthetic design is still relatively new to Morgan. It’s only about a decade since professionals started to change the way the cars look. And now we’ve reached the stage where we can start to evolve the company.” This is the big issue I’ve been hoping to get to: how can Morgan evolve? Wells acknowledges a stuttering start for past new-era proposals (without actually fingering the controversially cross-eyed Aero 8 of the 2000 Geneva motor show , or the promising but stillborn LIFEcar and EvaGT projects on which he worked in his early Morgan days).

Fassbender’s turn as Alien: Covenant’s android clones David and Walter is the latest example of a Hollywood actor putting in an impressive double-shift One thing definitely worth salvaging from the wreckage of Prometheus ? Michael Fassbender’s David, the hyper-capable android with a clipped English accent and inbuilt superiority complex. In Ridley Scott’s sequel Alien: Covenant , Fassbender is back for a double-shift, playing both the original Davidreintroduced via a cryptic prologue – and Walter, an updated synthetic now shipping with an American accent. Despite the challenge of finding the nuances in playing what are essentially two operating systems on legs, Fassbender acquits himself well, even when delivering dialogue like: “I’ll do the fingering.” So how does this latest dual performance stack up against other actors who have played opposite themselves on screen?

Another essay on the site , by neatly dressed, Nazi-quoting NPI chairman Richard Spencer, argues for the intellectual inferiority of black people.Squarespace even powers the online store for Radix Journal , where Aryans can pick up an alt right-themed T-shirt or a Trump Deportation Force poster for under $30. Of course, this being the internet, some of the most disturbing content on those sites lives within the comment sections. That brings us back to Disqus, which hosts comments for Radix as well as NPI, commonly featuring statements like this: Taking measures against Jewish influence is too little too late. When the goblins are already inside your home, eating from your pantry and fingering your children, you are several degrees past the point where forming a new investigatory commission is warranted. We contacted tech companies about their connections to such disparaging content.

Regram : @billboard ❤️ #Malibu #NewMusic Next Thursday May 11th! A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on May 3, 2017 at 8:58pm PDT Cyrus controversial performance at the 2013 MTV Music Awards with Robin Thicke was rumored to have contributed to their split, but four years later she still cant even believe that her twerking and foam-fingering elicited such a strong reaction. I was shocked that people gave a fuck about the [MTV Video Music Awards]the twerking, the teddy bear, she recalled. Its a totally different time, and I dont think that would freak people out anymore. Now, Cyrus isnt letting anybody ― let alone herself ― get in the way of her maturation as an artist and an individual, even if it demands taking another wrecking ball to the image shes crafted over the last couple years.

That makes it all themore confounding that Samsung would release the devicewith such glaring shortcomings. A Creative Strategies/Survey Monkey survey finds that 53% of consumers said the Note 7 issue has not impacted their interest in the Galaxy S8, while 17.7% said they were not sure or undecided. Fingering The Culprit One of the things Samsung needed to do in its new phone to stay ahead of Apple was to put a bigger and brighter display on the S8. It did, and the critics love it . But theres a design trade-off there. To remove the bottom bezel, the chin on the front of the phone and replace it with screen area, Samsung needed to find a new place for the fingerprint scanner, one of three biometric methods of logging onto the phone and almost certainly the most popular. Samsung placed it awkwardly on the top back of the phone near the camera.

Republican efforts to unite around a plan to repeal Obamacare devolved into a heated round of intra-party sniping Wednesday, as conservative groups publicly pummeled moderate GOP lawmakers — all while the White House talked of unity and progress. The failure to reach a deal in late night talks Tuesday, which were held by competing factions of House Republicans and brokered by Vice President Mike Pence, led conservative advocacy groups Heritage Action and Club for Growth to lash out at centrist Republicans for resisting proposals to undercut Obamacare’s regulations. “Each one of these members of Congress is standing in the way of compromise,” Heritage Action CEO Mike Needham said in a call with reporters, fingering the 50-member Tuesday Group as the culprit that “refuses to get to yes.” “Their commitment to [repealing] Obamacare is one that existed on the campaign trail but does not exist in the halls of Congress,” he said.

Eleven of the of the twelve songs on this album are Towner's own compositions. Two of which, "Shard" and "Rewind" he surprisingly revisits from his days with Oregon. In looking over Towner's discography you rarely, if ever, find him repeating himself; re-recording songs that he has already recorded. Despite the obvious Evans connection-unlike Evans, who made it almost a sacred mission to take a song and reconstruct it over and over, extracting every possible nuance-Towner seems to prefer to constantly create new, often miniature, vehicles of expression. "Pligrim" has a beautifully repeating melody over which the guitarist spins a minstrel-like magic. "I'll Sing to You" is a love song of delicate, filigreed beauty. "Saunter" is a marvelously light, energetic piece that does indeed saunter with Towner's fleet fingering. The song has a feel of familiarity that leaves you with a sense of Déjà vu.

In the horrifying finale ( SPOILER! ), she and her now-estranged boyfriend accidentally bludgeon to death Keith, with whom she had an affair but had come to believe was her stalker. Immediately thereafter, Portia arrives on the scene with the missing woman herself, who confesses glibly that she had simply run away and dropped contact with her loved ones after a bad breakup. The show ends there, with Dory in the bloody wreckage of her own botched self-investigation of a non-crime with a non-victim at its center. The only damage that has been caused, in the end, was caused by her own paranoia and recklessness. This narrative undoubtedly skewers the recklessness of the amateur detective trend, both in fiction and in reality (think Redditors regrettably and incorrectly fingering Sunil Tripathi , a missing student, as a suspect in the Boston bombings), but its also an indictment of a paranoid, hair-triggered approach to the world thats hardly restricted to crime-solving forums.

Why are alt-right trolls are attacking random asian people online? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Supporters of Donald Trump— including many on the “alt-right”– tried to name and shame an Asian woman caught on camera peeking at Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson‘s notes, but kept fingering the wrong woman. In a video that went viral Wednesday, a woman and a group of men hang around Tillerson’s seat during a break in his confirmation hearing. The woman notices that Tillerson left his notes, walks over, and positions her phone in a way that suggests she was taking a photo. Later, the woman can be seen pointing out Tillerson’s notes to one of her acquaintances. Indignant, Trump fans set out to discover which Asian reporter it could have been.

It's that kind of classic apology, I'm very sorry, for trusting people too much. In the case of Jay Y Lee, for sending out a bad image. It's become a classic political apology where you don't admit any kind of wrong doing yourself. Everybody in this scandal is saying, I've not broken the law, and the prosecutor is now fingering some very important collars indeed. Including Jay Y Lee, the heir apparent to Samsung.

The Los Angeles Police Department needs help fingering a man who robbed a convenience store using just his finger as a fake gun. Police released store surveillance video last week in hopes of identifying the man who pulled a stickup Nov. 11 at a convenience store on El Segundo Boulevard around 11:55 p.m. The video shows the man, dressed in a light blue long-sleeved dress shirt, blue jean shorts, white socks, black ankle-high tennis shoes and a fedora hat, grabbing a bottle of water and walking up to the counter. After numerous customers leave the store, the robber orders employees to take money out of the cash register and place it on the counter, or else youll be shot! He keeps his right hand hidden in his pocket before he jumps over the counter and takes $300 from the register. At that point, hes hiding his right hand behind his back.

He did that by fingering as scapegoats Muslims , Mexicans , and others not-like-me. Trumps political strategy reduced to this: as president, he would overturn the conventions that had governed right thinking since the end of the Cold War. To the amazement of an establishment grown smug and lazy, his approach worked. Even while disregarding all received wisdom when it came to organizing and conducting a presidential campaign in the Age of Great Expectations, Trump won. He did so by enchanting the disenchanted, all those who had lost faith in the promises that had sprung from the bosom of the elites that the end of the Cold War had taken by surprise. Adrift Without a Compass Within hours of Trumps election, among progressives, expressing fear and trepidation at the prospect of what he might actually do on assuming office became de rigueur .

The article featured interviews with teenagers who claimed they earned $5,000 per month from a steady stream of pro-Trump fake news with sensational headlines posted on Facebook. No names are revealed, even though such activity doesnt seem to be outlawed in the fractured society. BuzzFeed and Esquire followed suit with their versions of this planted tripe, again without naming any sources. Question: Who paid for the airfares, hotels and per diem for Tynan and other American writers who arrived in remote Veles for this “scoop”, which more resembles a pooper scooper? Hey, Georgy Schwartz, your credit card? That’s the real name of Soros when he was working for the Nazis fingering fellow Hungarian Jews for deportation aboard the cattle cars. He’s such a dyed-in-wool liar that even his names are fake. Were the Veles teenagers working for the Russian spy service, as suggested by the CIA stooges in Washington D.

And in fact we did not see further tampering of the election process.” Multiple media outlets have reported that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded that Putin was directly involved in his government’s efforts to meddle in last month’s election. Obama on Friday would not directly confirm Putin’s involvement in the cyberattacks but implied that such an action could only have happened with the Russian strong man’s say-so. It was the closest the president has come to fingering Putin directly for the attacks. “We have said and I will confirm that this happened at the highest levels of the Russian government,” Obama said. “And I will let you make that determination as to whether there are high-level Russian officials who go off rogue and decide to tamper with the U.S. election process without Vladimir Putin knowing about it.” Obama said his administration actively sought to avoid politicizing the issue of Russian hacking from the White House, leaving it as a campaign issue for President-elect Donald Trump and his opponent, Hillary Clinton, to address.
