Staffers lined up on the stairs, clapping as he made his way down. It was carried live by a local New York news station and by CNBCexactly the kind of grand send-off that fuels speculation about what he has in mind next. As it turns out, though, the “clap-out” is fairly common practice anytime someone leaves the US attorneys office. The bagpipers work at the courthouse as court security officers. They probably do something similar every two weeks or so, one lawyer in the office said. That the television cameras were there—well, that says more about the cameras than about Bharara. “I think people were pretty emotional about him leaving. It has been such a shock,” said one longtime deputy. “That he gets to stick it to Trump a little bit on the way out the door is I am sure something he enjoys.”

Eliminating the Affordable Care Act means eliminating an awful lot of things that people badly need in return for what?” Biden asked, standing alongside House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats. “So the 0.9 percent in taxes for people making over $250,000 can be returned to them? So drug companies and insurance companies and medical device companies can benefit?” He later predicted the bill won't pass, adding it would give an additional $57,000 a year in tax breaks for those making more than a million dollars a year. If you lined up all the millionaires in America, and asked, 'Is this fair?' I think they would all say no,” he said. “I really do, I honest to God believe they'd say no if it means all the bad things that happened before coming back. GOP still short on votes. House Republican leaders and President Donald Trump are closing in on the 216 House votes they need to push the Obamacare repeal bill through the chamber on Thursday.

At present, the government levies an average 25.5 per cent tax on AC unit which consists central excise duty and state VAT. Inverter ACs have introduced by manufacturers in the last 2-3 years and they are around 40 per cent more power efficient than the conventional air-conditioners. Inverter AC converts power into DC current and helps its compressor to change frequency according to the ambient load. Highlighting the benefits of inverter ACs, he said they save 65 per cent power in comparison to one star AC and 40 per cent to a 5 star AC. Thiagarajan further said: "This (18 per cent slab) should also be extended to the educational institutions and government hospitals as it could be tracked by GST numbers." The company has lined up 135 models for this summer and is expecting an over 20 per cent growth in sales. "We would continue to grow aggressively in the room AC business by 20 per cent and achieve 12.

The witnesses said the fighters unloaded the men, lined most of them up on the edge of the sinkhole, and opened fire so that the bodies fell in. Fighters shot a smaller number of people a short distance away and threw their bodies into the hole, the witnesses said. One of the men from al-Athba and the man from Irbid said ISIS fighters later told them that the men they had executed were prisoners from Badoush. The killings at the Khafsa sinkhole apparently continued regularly from late 2014 to mid-2015. One of the residents from Swada, a shepherd, said that in September 2014, he was near Khafsa and saw male ISIS fighters arrive in a pickup truck with at least 13 women, all with full face coverings and cloaks and blindfolds, with their hands bound. He said the ISIS fighters shot the women on the precipice of the pit. He said he witnessed three more group executions subsequently, including the execution of three of his relatives.

This clip has been making the social media rounds, and I can't stop watching it. The way the thing is able to stabilize in flight, then braces for the landing: That's a sugar glider, a marsupial native to Australia, and the skin folds that enable it to glide are called the patagium. Evolution is a strange thing, and other non-related animals in other parts of the world also have patagia. For instance, in North America and parts of northern Europe they've got flying squirrels with patagia, and those are rodents, not marsupials: This little guy is called the Sulawesi Lined Gliding Lizard, native to Indonesia, and it's obviously a reptile: Then there's the Colugo, a/k/a the Flying Lemur, which is a mammal: Mother Colugo carrying her baby Colugos may look evil and scary, but they're actually not dangerous at all.

Heating Up the New Cold War Cummings thus became another Democrat pouring gasoline on the smoldering tensions between nuclear-armed Russia and the United States. For the Democrats, any dealing with any entity that had some connection to Russia is now prima facie evidence of disloyalty. The context of these contacts has become almost irrelevant, subordinated to the larger goal of ousting Trump, whatever the cost, even transforming the Democratic Party into the party of the New Cold War and the New McCarthyism. Yet, further undercutting the new certainty that Putin lined Trump’s pockets with rubles as a way to ensure his allegiance to the Kremlin is the story of Trump’s failed luxury hotel project intended to be built in Moscow several years ago. A source familiar with those negotiations told me that Trump had hoped to get a half interest in the $2 billion project but that Russian-Israeli investor Mikhail Fridman, a founder of Russia’s Alfa Bank, balked because Trump was unwilling to commit a significant investment beyond the branding value of the Trump name.
