Economists flag up the uncertainty and assumptions behind their predictions with forests of caveats. But that nuance is often stripped away by politicians or the media or both. In defence of economists I would say that short-term forecasting is extremely difficult. We are talking about trying to predict the actions of millions of different consumers across the economy and trying to impose some order on all of that, those millions of decisions, is inevitably going to be really difficult.

We have a number of tools that we can impose to try to make sure that surveillance is compatible with our democratic values. Finally, I think the precursor for that is to have more transparency. The government has to come clean about what exactly it’s doing and how it’s interpreting the laws and how it’s using them to collect information about us so that we can understand the system and figure out where reform is required.

A 30% hike in homes moving supplier in 2016 supports Ofgem decision not to impose price caps but watchdog says market is still not competitive enough The competition watchdog’s decision not to impose price caps on energy bills has received backing from new data showing that the number of gas and electricity customers switching to a different provider rose by almost 30% in 2016. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) opted against wide-ranging curbs on bills last year following a two-year inquiry and instead recommended more action to encourage switching. However, the debate on price caps has resurfaced this year after a host of energy providers announced steep tariff hikes. Related: The truth about falling gas prices Continue reading...

IRNAFirst Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri extended congratulation to prominent Iranian director Asghar Farhadi on winning the Oscar 2017. Addressing a local ceremony here on Monday, Jahangiri said his congratulations to Farhadi had two reasons: first for presenting a sterling and valuable job that led to winning the Academy Award, and second for making the right decision not to attend the Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles in order to defend his country against the inhuman measure taken by the US President Donald Trump on Jan 27 to impose visa ban on the nationals of seven Muslim countries including Iran. On Jan 29, Farhadi did announce that he would not participate in the 2017 Oscars ceremony in protest to the US visa ban. Farhadi’s “The Salesmanwon the Oscar 2017 on Monday. It was the second time that the prestigeous award was given to Farhadi.

Resolving the problems of the human society and building a better world would need sympathy, condolence and helping each and every of the world people. As great Saadi, the renowned Iranian poet put it: The sons of Adam are limbs of each other, Having been created of one essence. When the calamity of time affects one limb The other limbs cannot remain at rest. We should all try to make a better future and to expand friendship, justice and freedom. All people need to feel responsible and enjoy the opportunity to participate in and lead that sacred deed. I’m positive no wise human being will condemn an effort to eradicate racial discrimination and discrimination in the US. 7- Terrorism is an anti-human tool in the hands of global powers in order to cause insecurity and rifts, as well as to impose their will and policies on nations and governments.

Currently, the 87-year-old Kusama paints in her studio from 9 a.m. until dark, when she rests in order "to create something the next day." Kusama does not wish to impose her philosophy of self-obliteration and infinity on others, Yoshitake said. Instead, she hopes to evoke emotion through thought-provoking and humbling experiences. "After I die," Kusama told Hirshhorn director Melissa Chiu, "I hope that people see that my paintings are about love and peace and spirituality. This is why I am painting. I keep on painting."

Hence, the US president knows that he cannot exert pressure on Iran through the nuclear deal because the negotiating sides and the IAEA have reaffirmed Iran’s full compliance. Besides, UNSC Resolution 2231, which endorsed the JCPOA, guarantees the accord. As a result, Trump resorts to allegations against the Islamic Republic such as human rights violations, missile tests and supporting terrorism to press ahead with his anti-Iran plans. Since Trump and Republicans harbor anti-Iran feelings, it is likely that they will adopt policies against Tehran. The White House can impose unilateral sanctions to pile pressure on Iran. However, it seems unlikely that other major countries will toe its line. Seyyed Jalal Sadatian is an international relations analyst.

Tightening eligibility came up as governors met on Saturday with Price, a sharp critic of Obamacare, during a closed-door session on health care. Beyond the Obamacare expansion, Republicans in Congress want to end the open-ended nature of Medicaid. But scrapping the Obamacare expansion wouldn't change significant state-by-state variations in federal spending on different groups of enrollees. According to the Urban Institute, federal Medicaid spending per enrollee in 2017 ranges from a low of $3,804 in New Hampshire to a high of $10,459 in the District of Columbia. “I’m interested in seeing all of us save money,” said Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, who wants to preserve Medicaid expansion and not impose federal spending caps on high-cost populations, such as seniors jointly eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. “How do we do it in a way where we’re still providing effective health care and good health care?”

Daniel McAdams Ron Paul Institute Recently, we had a look at the ways President Trump's Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, is making her predecessor, humanitarian bomber Samantha Power, look like a model diplomat by comparison. It turns out Haley's ghastly performance at the UN thus far is no fluke. Each time she opens her mouth she spews not the kind of foreign policy that President Trump campaigned on, but rather the boot-in-the-face know-nothingness that we have grown accustomed to in recent years. In the latest Haley Alert, the Ambassador is furious over a Russia-threatened veto of a UN Security Council resolution offered by the US, UK, and France to impose new sanctions on the Syrian government over unproven allegations that Syria used chemical weapons against its own population. Yes, under Ambassador Haley we have entered a time machine back to 2013, where the US is ready to deploy its entire diplomatic (and perhaps military) arsenal against the one government in the Middle East actually fighting President Trump's sworn enemies: ISIS and al-Qaeda.
