As promised, I directed the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs. We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet. I have also imposed new sanctions on entities and individuals who support Iran's ballistic missile program, and reaffirmed our unbreakable alliance with the State of Israel. Finally, I have kept my promise to appoint a Justice to the United States Supreme Court from my list of 20 judges who will defend our Constitution. I am honored to have Maureen Scalia with us in the gallery tonight. Her late, great husband, Antonin Scalia, will forever be a symbol of American justice.

And parents have a role. Absolutely. Also, parents can be enabled and encouraged to have that conversation with children if they know that it is going on at school. We have heard from so many children at the NSPCC that the first time children learn about sex and relationships is when they are into the real thing, which is way too late.

Opposing sides in the fight for control of Aleppo committed war crimes, according to a new United Nations report. The U.N.'s latest report on the six-year conflict said the Syrian government's aerial bombing and strafing of a humanitarian convoy that killed 14 aid workers and halted relief operations were among the war crimes that were committed. Syrian and Russian forces executed indiscriminate "daily air strikes" using cluster munitions on the rebel-held eastern part of Aleppo between July and the and the fall of the city in late December, the report said. Hundreds of people were killed and hospitals destroyed, amounting to the war crime of indiscriminate attacks. Was Russia involved? U.N. investigators could not determine if both Syrian and Russian forces were involved in the Aleppo attacks because they jointly controlled their air space over the area "throughout the period under review.

In the beginning we heard from a Labour Peer moving the amendment, she speaks for the party on Brexit. She recalled a speech in 1985, famously at a torrid conference when he said you cannot play politics with people's jobs. She said you cannot play politics with people's futures. And we heard a rebel Tory taking his late father is titled, the former Tory cabinet minister, talking about the world high ground he said it is often the best ground to fight a campaign.

And thats all we will say about the plot as it twists and turns in on itself, terrifying the viewer repeatedly in the process. While we wait patiently for Nicolas Winding Refns Neon Demon to land on Netflix, Starry Eyes is a great replacement. Its a horror movie that takes on the same basic theme of someone trying to make it big in an industry - in this case. Hollywood, in Neon Demons case fashion - and watching a slow descent into hell because of it. A bit of an oddity this, but any film that can be boiled down with the following elevator pitch: Jurassic Park meets The Walking Dead is alright by us. Starring Dougray Scott - whos seemingly reduced to c-list roles of late - the concept is a bunch of thrill seekers go to an island where zombies have been bred so you can kill them and all hell breaks loose.

Displaced men who fled their homes due to fighting between Iraqi security forces and ISIS militants wait for a security check at an Army base, west of Mosul, Iraq, Feb. 26. 2017. (AP/Khalid Mohammed) (ANALYSIS) In order to determine the truth when it comes to the mainstream media’s coverage of American-led offensives in the Middle East, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of any article. This is where the most important information can be found. As can be seen in a BBC report on the U.S.-backed offensive to retake the Iraqi city of Mosul from the Islamic State, the last line of the article reads: “The UN said in late January that almost half of all the casualties in Mosul were civilians. At least 1,096 have been killed and 694 injured across Nineveh province since the start of October .” [emphasis added] Compared with a separate BBC report on the Russian-backed offensive to retake the Syrian city of Aleppo, the media’s coverage of these two military operations can hardly be viewed as balanced.

Scientists are one step closer to figuring out what dinosaurs actually looked likeand they're doing it by pointing laser beams on dinosaur fossils to show previously unknown features and details, including the actual fleshy outlines of prehistoric creatures. In a new study , researchers focused the technique on the Anchiornis , a small feathered dinosaur that lived in the late Jurassic period. SEE ALSO: A dinosaur-era reptile popped out babies, not eggs Due to the animal's drumstick-shaped legs and bird-like arms, revealed by the lasers, researchers think the Anchiornis might have been able to fly. The discovery offers another link in how modern-day birds may have evolved from their predecessors, according to the study published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications. Read more...

Late last year, the United Nations vowed to intensify the fight against a deadly cholera outbreak its peacekeepers inadvertently carried to Haiti. To date, however, it has raised just a small fraction of the estimated $400 million needed over the next two years to wage that campaign, according to a letter from the new secretary-general. “The voluntary contributions that have been received are not yet sufficient and constitute only 2 percent of the amount," Antonio Guterres wrote in the letter sent last week to permanent representatives of the international body. That would mean about $8 million. The letter said that as of February 8, five member states - Chile, France, India, Liechtenstein and South Korea - collectively had pledged almost $2 million to a U.N. multi-partner trust fund. Outside of that fund, Japan has promised $2.6 million and Canada has committed about $6 million.

Late songs like “ The Thousandth and Tenth Day of the Human Totem Polecondense the grotesque imaginary of Dali into a few staggering lines. Yet we dont get a collection of Beefheart readings until 1993, when he appeared in a short documentary by Anton Corbijn called Some Yo Yo Stuff . You can watch that film at the top of the post, and in the videos below it, hear Van Vliet read poems and song lyrics in recordings from his time with Corbijn. Both in the film and in the readings, it is evident that the multiple sclerosis that killed Beefheart in 2010 had rendered speech difficult for him. But with patient listening, we hear that his sparkling wit and absurdist genius remained at full strength, as in another, long 1993 interview with Dutch radio host Co De Kloet . Beefheart earned a reputation as an autocratic-yet-capricious bandleader (recording a tongue-in-cheek spoken word piece on the subject in earlier years).
