It will be one of the great milestones in the history of the world. But what will America look like as we reach our 250th year? What kind of country will we leave for our children? I will not allow the mistakes of recent decades past to define the course of our future. For too long, we've watched our middle class shrink as we've exported our jobs and wealth to foreign countries. We've financed and built one global project after another, but ignored the fates of our children in the inner cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit and so many other places throughout our land. We've defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross and for drugs to pour in at a now unprecedented rate. And we've spent trillions of dollars overseas, while our infrastructure at home has so badly crumbled.

Cash convertibles There wont be any more Pixel notebooks, but a source familiar with Googles inner workings told CNET that: We may not see a next generation of the Pixel Chromebook line, but it doesn't mean Google isn't still interested in branded laptops and or convertibles. Osterloh also sent a statement to CNET which read: Regarding the future of Google-branded laptops (whether called Pixel or not), I should clarify that we don't have any plans to discuss at this time. In other words, nothing is happening right now, but that doesnt mean it wont in the future. For the moment, perhaps, Google feels that the Chromebook market is mature enough that the firm doesnt need to lead the way, so to speak, with a flagship Pixel product. Indeed, if another model of Chromebook is forthcoming from Google, itll be interesting to see whether this is still pitched at the premium end of the market.

Linda Miller who tweeted the clip to Derbyshire police called the incident dangerous. She asks: What can be done about this sort of dangerous situation? @DerbysPolice mobility scooter in left...

"We've financed and built one global project after another, but ignored the fates of our children in the inner cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit—and so many other places throughout our land," he said. "We've defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross—and for drugs to pour in at a now unprecedented rate." Trump said he has ordered government agencies to engage in an aggressive campaign to shut drug networks operating in the United States. Trillions of dollars have been spent overseas while American infrastructure has not been modernized, he said. Trump promised to bring dying U.S. industries back to life and provide more resources to the U.S. military. New roads, bridges, tunnels, airports, and railways will be built and the drug epidemic will be curbed and "ultimately stop," he said.

For too long, we've watched our middle class shrink as we've exported our jobs and wealth to foreign countries. We've financed and built one global project after another, but ignored the fates of our children in the inner cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit -- and so many other places throughout our land. We've defended the borders of other nations, while leaving our own borders wide open, for anyone to cross -- and for drugs to pour in at a now unprecedented rate. And we've spent trillions of dollars overseas, while our infrastructure at home has so badly crumbled. Then, in 2016, the earth shifted beneath our feet. The rebellion started as a quiet protest, spoken by families of all colors and creeds -– families who just wanted a fair shot for their children, and a fair hearing for their concerns. But then the quiet voices became a loud chorus -- as thousands of citizens now spoke out together, from cities small and large, all across our country.

New roads and bridges will replace crumbling infrastructure, he said. The president also vowed to end the country's drug epidemic, giving hope and rebirth to inner cities and their youth. Trump's address to both the House and Senate is titledRenewal of the American Spirit.” It comes at a critical time for this new president, who was elected on pledges to quickly shake up Washington, but whose first five weeks in office have left him saddled with historically low approval ratings. Just 44 percent of Americans approve of his job performance, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey. This speech is technically not a State of the Union address, although newly sworn-in presidents often address a joint session of Congress in their first weeks in office. The Supreme Court justices and members of Trump's Cabinet are on hand for the televised event.

Scientists conducting research into hearing loss have come across a compound the regenerates cochlear hair cells, which could lead to a cure for certain kinds of deafness. From C&EN: The snail-shell-shaped cochlea of the inner ear contains some 15,000 hair cells that are needed for humans to hear. Audiologist dogma holds that once these cells die off, they never grow back, leading to hearing loss. But a new study suggests that hair cell death may not be as immutable as it seems. Scientists from Harvard, MIT, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, and Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary have discovered a mixture of molecules that can dramatically reverse hair cell loss in the cochleas of mice.
