It is a very strange system, particularly in terms of how the British media operates, the press corps lives at the White House and follows the President's every move and they will be worried about their access and where these stories are coming from. It seems that Twitter is going to be the primary outlet for President Trump. It is a real change in tone and way of being with the media. There certainly will be that sense of combat.

As an actress, she's worked with a number of today's auteurs such as Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Olivier Assayas and Sean Penn, and now Kristen Stewart is stepping behind the camera with her directorial debut short Come Swim . Reminiscent of Terrence Malick's cinematic poetry in its metaphorical, visceral images and whispering voiceovers by Stewart, Come Swim follows a young man's emotional pan as he is oversaturated and then parched by water. He's played by Josh Kaye, a...

It is a good example, too, of Jewish wisdom, which responds to the situation as follows: “We had contempt for Diocletian the swineherd, but we are ready to honor Diocletian the emperor provided he, like Saul — who, before becoming king had tended donkeysheeds the prophecy, rises to his office, and becomes a new man.” And, above all, it is a good allegory of the double-edged favors, or, if you will, the poison apples, proffered by a humiliated swineherd, eager for revenge, who [as Trump did] decides to show Jon Stewart and his fellow Jews that he is indeed smarter than they are. In the face of this situation, nothing is more important, it seems to me, than to maintain a measure of distance... In this period that has been labeled, for lack of a better word, populist... in this new political culture that has now encircled the earth, one in which, from the American plutocrats to their Russian oligarch cousins, the swineherds slap their pedigree shamelessly on imperial palaces, the little Jewish nation has no part to play.

What Home Care Costs and Who Pays : Linda Nelson, LSCWS, CMC, Professional Care Manager at Kansas City's Creative Care Consultants says that "Home care is paid for privately and by some long-term care insurance policies. Medicare and Medicaid payment, when made at all, is extremely limited. Payment is also sometimes made through a Department of Veterans Affairs program called Aid and Assistance, which may cover up to $1,788 per month for veterans and up to $1,149 for surviving spouses of veterans." The cost of an in-home care aide typically runs between $15 and $26 per hour, although it is usually higher on the East Coast and West Coast. Preliminary Decisions : Before deciding to hire a home care aide, you will need to make several decisions. These are as follows: Hiring an in-home care aide vs. having a family member provide needed care: There are many advantages of using a home care aide rather than a family member when looking at potential providers of care.

In the almost five years since the launch of the original Raspberry Pi we have seen a huge array of competitors emerge in the inexpensive single board computer market. Many have created their own form factors, but an increasing number have gone straight for the jugular of the fruity board from Cambridge by copying its form factor and interfaces as closely as possible. We've seen sterling efforts from the likes of Banana Pi, Odroid, and several others, but none have yet succeeded in toppling it from its pedestal. The ASUS Tinker specification. The latest contender in this arena might just make more of an impact though, because it comes from a major manufacturer, a name you will have heard of. Asus have quietly released their Tinker, board that follows the Pi form factor very closely, and packs a 1.8 GHz quad-core ARM Cortes A17 alongside an impressive spec we've captured as an image for this article.

Modi and Obama met nine times over the past two years, a frenetic level of engagement that saw a raft of bilateral deals but also global convergences, particularly on climate change. Donald Trump has already been sold as the daddy of dealmakers, so the first summit meeting between him and Modi will be closely watched. His statements so far have indicated he is prepared to be tougher on China and jihadi terrorism. Tellis advises the incoming Trump administration to keep America's larger strategic interests in mind while dealing with India. But the India-Trump party might be impacted on a couple of issuesH-1B visas, trade and investment. Indian technology companies will be impacted severely if Trump follows through with a narrow definition of America First. India should be prepared to deal with fewer H-1B visas, lower US corporate taxes, import tariffs.

Former Vice President Al Gore said that while he wouldn't divulge specifics about his December conversation with Donald Trump, it wasn't “the last conversation.” Speaking to a packed auditorium in Park City following the premiere of the climate change documentary “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,'' which kicked off the 33rd Sundance Film Festival Thursday, Gore said that he's seen a lot of people who started out as climate deniers change over time. “Whether he will or not remains to be seen,” Gore said of Trump, whose inauguration as president was Friday. Trump has decried climate change as a hoax. Gore also noted that “two days after that meeting he appointed someone to the EPA who I don't think should be heading the EPA.” “But this story has many chapters to unfold here,” Gore said. Gore remains hopeful “An Inconvenient Sequel,” which comes 10 years after “An Inconvenient Truth,” follows Gore through a year in his life as he tries to effect change through education — whether it's private individuals or world leaders.

JERUSALEM: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he wants relations with the United States to be "stronger than ever" after Donald Trump becomes president. Netanyahu congratulated his "friend" Trump in a tweet before his inauguration, saying he was looking forward "to working closely with you to make the alliance between Israel & USA stronger than ever". Meanwhile, Israel's leftwing newspaper Haaretz reported Friday that security services have presented Netanyahu with a series of scenarios about potential Palestinian violence if Trump follows through on his promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Such a transfer would break with the consensus of the vast majority of the international community, which does not recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Israel captured east Jerusalem during the 1967 war and later annexed it, declaring all of the city its unified capital.
