What happened? Labour held out to Ukip in the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election, which was forced after Labour’s Tristram Hunt resigned to become director of the V&A. But Jeremy Corbyn and his party had just under an hour to savour the victory as the Copeland by-election result hit home in the early hours, handing a resounding victory to the Conservatives with a huge swing in a supposed Labour heartland. It was the first time an opposition party had lost a seat to a governing party in 35 years and the best by-election performance by a party in government since 1966. The last time the Conservatives won in Copeland was in 1931. It was a bad night for Ukip leader Paul Nuttall, whose campaign had been dogged by allegations of myth-making including one claim revealed by Channel 4 News that he may have misled voters about the location of his home address at the time of registration, forcing a police inquiry.

Chung was accused of handing over $300,000 to the Democratic National Committee on behalf of the head of Chinese military intelligence during Clinton's 1996 presidential run. Chung had a close relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton at the time, according to the Daily Mail . In total he visited the White House 57 times in a two-year spaneight of these meetings were "off the books." Most of the meetings were with Hillary Clinton or her staff. During one of these trips, Chung personally handed a $50,000 check to Hillary Clinton's chief of staff Maggie Williams. Chung even helped arrange for Bill Clinton to meet with the source of the money–a top Chinese military official–at a Los Angeles fundraiser. Chung ended up cooperating with the Department of Justice during the investigation. In 1998, he was sentenced to five years of probation for campaign finance violations, bank fraud, and tax evasion.

A DISABLED couple are still without a downstairs toilet after building work stopped on an extension, which remains unfinished seven months on.

After months of offensives and nearly daily statements claiming huge numbers of ISIS fighters killed, Turkey today claimed to have finally captured the city of al-Bab, the last ISIS-held city in the Aleppo Province of northern Syria. Al-Bab was a city of about 60,000 people before the war, and located just east of Aleppo. Turkey's Defense Ministry says that they are handing the city over to a Free Syrian Army faction, one of the moderate rebel groups Turkey has been backing since their invasion of Syria last August . The forces are still sweeping the town for landmines, saying the city is yet to be fully cleared. ISIS claimed to have killed more than 400 Turkish troops and allied rebels in the course of fighting over the city, and destroyed 41 Turkish tanks. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the fighting had killed 444 civilians A big concern now is what Turkey's invasion force does next.

Average rates were 7.8 words per minute for Degray and 6.3 and 2.7 words per minute, respectively, for the other two participants. Rerouted nerves let paralyzed people use hands The investigational system used in the study, an intracortical brain-computer interface called the BrainGate Neural Interface System, represents the newest generation of BCIs. Previous generations picked up signals first via electrical leads placed on the scalp, then by being surgically positioned at the brain's surface beneath the skull. An intracortical BCI uses a tiny silicon chip, just over one-sixth of an inch square, from which protrude 100 electrodes that penetrate the brain to about the thickness of a quarter and tap into the electrical activity of individual nerve cells in the motor cortex. Henderson likened the resulting improved resolution of neural sensing, compared with that of older-generation BCIs, to that of handing out applause meters to individual members of a studio audience rather than just stationing them on the ceiling, so you can tell just how hard and how fast each person in the audience is clapping.

" Kawerak would "document as fully as possible from archival and other sources what is known about traditional beliefs, knowledge, and experience regarding the supernatural." The research also includes focus groups with community members about their "personal experience with the supernatural." Ultimately, the group was given $50,000 for the project in June 2016. Julie Raymond-Yakoubian, the head researcher on the study, said the project is "proceeding well and is still ongoing." Kawerak held a community meeting for the project in October on the supernatural environment, handing out door prizes to draw interest. The organization received $22.4 million from the federal government in fiscal year 2016, with the majority of funds going towards Tribal self-governance, Head Start, and renewable energy programs. Alaskan folklore includes stories of strange creatures, like the enukins , or "Little People," the "smallish, mischievous creatures of the night.

I wasn't held in Guantanamo Bay. Was he charged with a crime? He wasn't, but he was deemed a threat. We will come onto the drones in a moment but I don't have an issue with what is happening unofficially but when we start handing out criminal sanctions officially to people who haven't been convicted there is an issue.

I dont regret my decision one bit either. Shortly after takeoff, the flight attendants distributed small water bottles as well as the menus for our flight. They came around again a few minutes later to distribute the iPads, allowing me to get set up with my entertainment before having lunch. After handing out hot towels, the FAs asked for my choice of beverage — there were several beers, wines and cocktails, including the excellent Mai Tai that I had before. I settled on a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, which appeared moments later with a dish of salted macadamia nuts. Both were delicious. Next, I got to choose between two appetizer salads and two main course dishes. For the appetizer, there was either a crab meat salad or a burrata and tomato salad. Being a total cheese head, I went for the Caprese salad and it didnt disappoint. Another thing that impressed me was that the butter was served at room temperature instead of as the freezing cold brick you'd end up with on other airlines.

Image 12 of 64 Image 12 of 64 Ride and Handling With big claims made for a class leading blend of ride and handling the Levante has much to live-up to. Initial impressions are really encouraging, with a palpable sense of structural rigidity, smooth, well-judged steering response (from a hydraulic power-assisted rack) that’s quick-witted without feeling overly sharp, and damping that connects you to the road but isolates you from the bumps. Above all it hides its size and weight (2205kg for the diesel) admirably. After two hours of lumpen back roads and rapid autostrada work we arrive at the Balocco Proving Ground, where we can explore the opposite ends of the Levante’s capabilities on the high speed handing circuit and a technical off-road course. I’m not sure what feels more incongruous; pointing the bluff nose of a 2-ton+ SUV out onto one of the world’s more challenging manufacturer test tracks, or slamming it through rocky ruts , wading through mud and nudging over the edge of a precipitous 70% slope and falling into the invisible catch net of the hill decent electronics.
