Lion, based on a true story. An extraordinary true story. This whole thing about truth is stranger than fiction. The story of a young boy in the mid '80s, from Kandahar, who got onto a train on which he was trapped, which then travelled 1600 kilometres, and by the time he got off it he was away from home, couldn't speak the language, didn't know how to describe how to get himself back home, and ended up in the hands of the authorities and ended up being adopted by a couple in Tasmania.

I am very highly educated, I know words, I have the best words, but there is no better word than stupid. You may not like the divisive, emotive language but there is no arguing that Donald Trump is a skilful communicator. When he writes as well as when he speaks, they obey no known laws of conventional English grammar, but that is effective because he speaks in these very charged emotional terms.

He doesn't use bad language. When I use trash talk he doesn't trash talk with bad language. He antagonises, but gently so. A very nice bit of a young man. Manners are fantastic, but in the ring he is everything.

) And it aligns with Trump’s insistence that he speaks for ordinary Americans rather than for the elites. But Trump’s populist message, that he intends to deliver governmental power to the people, is belied by his own language. Linguistic simplicity, argue political scientists, tends to go hand-in-hand with substantive simplicity; political speeches that use simple language tend not to grapple with multiple viewpoints or weigh the arguments in support of alternative perspectives. And that matters because simple speeches foster a belief that reality is not complicated, and therefore, that there’s not much need for deliberation or debate. This view flips the conventional warning that officials obfuscate through overly complicated languagesimplicity, too, has the potential to obscure reality. Political scientist Christopher Olds has shown that when presidents downshifted into simpler language in their weekly public address (as measured by the Flesch score), the public became more inclined to think that the government’s role in domestic matters should be minimized.

All of a sudden, out of the blue, he's shown great character to get back in this match. That was a tough clearance. It was his last chance, a dog's chance so to speak. A good snooker on Barry Hawkins. Now, we know how easily matches can turn. You look at Joe's body language in the chair. It's completely different. It's incredible. He's alert, ready for it. Exactly. He was a beaten man before.

His legs are too square. He is taking risks. Davies, and the right-hand goes in. A lovely short right uppercut there, but Zoltan Szabo is taking too many risks for me. The body language in the corner was not too good at the end of that round. Do you want to go on? For me, the signs were not too good in the corner.

The marches tapped into intense opposition to Trump, who embraced a divisive campaign that gave license to hate and attacks, then picked fights through his transition and called people who didnt back him “enemies,” and capped it Friday with an inaugural address heavy on provocative language and light on outreach. Saturday afternoon, he kept at it, using a visit to the CIA headquarters mostly to talk about how great his victory was, and how the “dishonest mediadidnt accurately report the size of a crowd for his inauguration that he estimated at 1-1.5 million, but was closer by official estimates to 200-250,000. What the people who still can’t process that Trump is president want is to be a movement that can do what Trump did in his presidential campaign, crowds turned into action and votes, beyond what anyone thought possible. What they’ve got for now is a sense of passionate aimlessness, leftover tensions from 2016 and a search for a sense of direction.

He shamed a former beauty Queen. That was well documented during the campaign what he said about a number of women, particularly those comments recorded secretly on the tape that actress Hollywood then revealed him referred to women and what he did with women in obscene language and the reference to that were the pussy caps that the women and other protestors had been wearing today, expressing their disgust for the way he referred to women and treated them during the campaign and during his career.

The French intellectual Bernard-Henry Levy has a new book out called The Genius of Judaism , much of which is a defense of Israel. He flacked for the country on public radio and in the New York Times this week. On Thursday on WNYC's Leonard Lopate show Levy said that anti-Zionism is just the latest disguise for anti-Semitism. There is a very dangerous and terrible trick today, which is that if one wants to be anti-Semitic, wants to put fuel and gasoline in his anti-Semitic hatred, the best habit for that, the best dressing, the best cosmetic, the best language, is anti-Zionism. If you want to recruit a large crowd of followers for an anti-semitic politic, anti-Zionism which is the hate of Israel as such is the best carburent [?]... You cannot be seriously anti-semitic today, if you are not anti-Zionist. And the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign aimed at Israel is the embodiment of this new anti-Semitism.

S. In an editorial, the English-language JoongAng Daily said South Korea's relations with the U.S. under Trump will face a challenge as the new leader will likely ask Seoul to pay more for the cost of the U.S. military forces in the country, and renegotiate a bilateral free trade agreement. But the paper also notes it is fortunate that Trump has a strong position on North Korea's nuclear weapons. There were concerns about potential conflicts between the U.S. and China, South Korea's key business partner. Kim Kyung-jin, a spokesman for the opposition People's Party, said that the international economic order might collapse as the U.S. seeks its own economic interest. Kim urged Trump to ease such worries. There is a possibility of us becoming an innocent bystander who gets hurt in a fight, said Nam Hae-sook, a 62-year-old homemaker.

It was a mean speech, insulting every one of his new colleagues by describing politicians as "all talk and no actionconstantly complaining but never doing anything about it." But mostly it was a flat speech, bereft of the poetry that this tense juncture called for. He used pared-down language, simple sentences and a sluggish delivery, as if he were reading to children. Call it the "Goodnight Moon" of Inaugural Addresses. He does as he pleases, expectations be damned, and indeed the most striking aspect of Trump's transition was an absence of humility. Although he owed his Electoral College win to just 77,000 votes in three states, and it was clouded by questions about James Comey and the Russians, he didn't bother much with outreach to adversaries or appeals for unity." Yikes!!! And this conclusion is STRAIGHT. FIRE. "What does that bode for the coming months? We've seen hints in the past ones.

On Thursday, Trump reportedly reiterated his stance on the embassy move to the Israel Hayom Hebrew-language daily, telling a reporter that “You know that I am not a person who breaks promises.” Mustafa Barghouti, a member of the Palestinian Parliament and Secretary General of the Palestinian National Initiative, agreed that in general, the United State’s stance on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict does not change much regardless of who is president, but he is concerned by some of Trump’s statements regarding the American embassy being moved to Jerusalem, as well as his appointment of David Friedman, an Orthodox Jewish bankruptcy lawyer who has voiced his support for the annexation and Israeli settlement of the West Bank. “There have certainly been signals that have come from the Trump camp that are very alarming, including the threat to move the American embassy to Jerusalem and the talks that came out of his administration about Israel’s illegal settlements not being an obstacle to peace, as well as statements about annexing parts of the West Bank to Israel,” Barghouti said.
