U.S. President Donald Trump made a new push Sunday for construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border to thwart illegal immigration, with funding for the controversial barrier at the forefront of White House discussions with lawmakers to avert a partial government shutdown at the end of the week. Trump wants initial funding for the wall, a key campaign promise in his run to the White House, included in the budget to finance government spending to the end of September, but opposition Democrats remain adamantly against its construction. The U.S. government runs out of operating funds at midnight Friday, giving the Republican-controlled Congress and minority Democrats just days to reach a compromise with the White House. "The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members," Trump said in a Twitter comment.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and White House budget director Mick Mulvaney differed on Sunday in what what they thought President Trump would do regarding a potential government spending bill that didn't include funding for a southern border wall. Kelly said on CNN's State of the Union that he believed President Trump would be "insistent" that any spending bill included such a provision, while Mulvaney said on Fox News Sunday that he didn't know if Trump would sign a bill without wall funds. "If Congress doesn't send President Trump a government funding bill by midnight on Friday, the government will run out of money and a shutdown would begin," CNN host Dana Bash said to Kelly. "So, will the president go to the mat and insist on funding his border wall as part of the stop-gap government funding measure?" "Well, Dana, I think it goes without saying that the president has been pretty straightforward about his desire and the need for a border wall, so I would suspect he'll do the right thing for sure, but I will suspect he'll be insistent on the funding," Kelly said.

(NEW YORK) Erin Moran, the former child star who played Joanie Cunningham in the sitcoms Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi, has died. She was 56. Moran was found dead Saturday by emergency responders after a dispatcher for the Harrison County, Indiana, sheriff's department received a 911 call, the department said. The cause of death has not been determined. An autopsy is pending. A Burbank, California, native, Moran began acting in TV and movies before she was 10 years old. She had several years of experience when she was cast in 1974 in Happy Days as Joanie Cunningham, the kid sister to high school student Richie Cunningham, played by Ron Howard, who went on to become a successful filmmaker. Her more recent credits included The Love Boat and Murder, She Wrote, but she never approached the success of Happy Days and was more often in the news for her numerous personal and financial struggles and was reportedly homeless at times.

The myth of the mega-successful college dropout In a recent study , we investigated how many of the wealthiest and most influential people graduated college. We studied 11,745 U.S. leaders, including CEOs, federal judges, politicians, multi-millionaires and billionaires, business leaders and the most globally powerful men and women. We also examined how many people graduated from an elite school. ( Our definition included the eight Ivy League schools, plus many of the top national universities and liberal arts colleges consistently high in the U.S. News rankings for both undergraduate and graduate education.) We found about 94% of these U.S. leaders attended college, and about 50% attended an elite school. Though almost everyone went to college, elite school attendance varied widely. For instance, only 20.6% of House members and 33.

The drive for support services has made a significant impact on contracts with increasingly high numbers almost entirely OPEX based. OPEX-based contracts provide a number of core benefits - much better suited to current market conditions than the high upfront cost CAPEX alternative, it provides flexibility for service to be expanded or reduced quickly, spending is determined and cost is guaranteed at a specific level. In addition comprehensive maintenance and support is included to agreed SLAs. As business becomes more competitive, this guarantee of revenue for the seller and simple to understand budgeting for the buyer is a core benefit. Interestingly, a significant 94% agree that IT based revenue streams will be almost entirely OPEX by 2020. Much of this change has been driven by market demand and expansion of the pay-as-you-grow economy. In the consumer space, we're already used to engaging with as-a-service offerings that can be easily scaled, from digital subscription media such as Netflix through to delivery services such as Amazon Prime.

But as with other public spats in the weeks that followed, the White House’s outrage toward Time would quickly subside and give way to other concerns: Namely, which members of the administration would be included on Time’s 100 most influential people list in April, and who would write their tributes? The press office and other corners of the West Wing expressed concerns about what would happen if Bannon, Trump son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner or senior White House aide Kellyanne Conway were included on the list, but chief of staff Reince Priebus or Vice President Mike Pence were not. Far from dismissing the list as “fake news,” White House officials were concerned that the president would take it as a blueprint for governing, and give short shrift going forward to top aides who did not make the cut. In the meantime, Trump’s staff has had its hands full just finding its footing.

As many as 1,912 metro coaches are operational in the country at present and there is an immediate requirement of 1,420 cars. Over the next three years, more than 1,600 metro cars would be required and each coach is estimated to cost about Rs 10 crore. The norms also make it mandatory for the metro companies to purchase 25 per cent of the "critical equipment and sub- systems" from within the country. For this, a list of critical equipment and sub-systems for procurement from indigenous manufacturing will be included in the tender document. It has also been made mandatory for the companies with large size fleet to undertake in-house maintenance. Meanwhile, the ministry has also standardised norms for rolling stock (coaches) and signaling equipment norms, covering 90 per cent of the imports. This will incentivise setting up of manufacturing facilities in the country due to increase in orders, an official release said.

Driving the 306bhp Honda Civic Type R BTCC car Those challenges included a lack of investment that left the concrete apron where the drivers worked on their cars cratered with savage potholes. Shared usage with a car boot sale meant that competitors arriving at the venue were greeted by piles of rubbish, unwanted clothes and bric-a-brac. Half of the grandstands were off-limits to spectators on safety grounds. Faded signage and crumbling furnishing hinted at a more prosperous past. Although the final meeting was a sell-out as fans crammed in to bid farewell to the track, not all Wimbledon meetings have enjoyed the same level of support. And as emissions regulations in the city have tightened, it has become increasingly expensive for competitors to drive the diesel transporters carrying their race cars into the capital. A group of enthusiasts led by Peter Gray, a racer and spectator, have mounted a passionate argument that the stadium should be saved.

KUALA LUMPUR: The installation of Sultan Muhammad V as Malaysia's 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong at Istana Negara on Monday, is a much awaited event not only for Malaysians, but also for foreign envoys based in Malaysia. The ceremony, which promises to be steeped in history and tradition and which takes place only once every five years, will surely be a sight to behold for the heads of the foreign missions invited. Ukrainian Ambassador, Olexander Nechytaylo, who will witness a King's installation ceremony for the very first time, was honoured to be included in the guest list, to be part of a unique event that ensured the continuity and stability of the country. "When I presented my credentials to Sultan Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah in July last year, I was absolutely stunned and humbled by the fact that I was not even born yet, when His Majesty started serving as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for the first time in 1970.
