Overall I welcome the path the government is taking. I asked around as is my duty to do by several people, councils what they thought of the bill and being an MP I must act without fear or favour so it's my duty to raise five break points that have been raised. The New Homes Bonus, adult social care, the business rates appeal, second homes and the general point on underfunding. If I could touch briefly on five.

Who's got out there and defied the odds over and over, and over again. He keeps getting pulled what he can do by this narrative that is out there and he exceeds it every single time. There is an overall frustration when you turn on the television over and over and get told that there is this narrative that you didn't win, you weren't gonna run, and you can't pick up the state.

Overall you're sounding quite positive about a Trump presidency. Is that because you think he's going to govern very differently from how he campaigned, four example the number of Goldman Sachs executives he's got in his administration. He talked about draining the swamp, he's not keeping his promise, is he? Certainly I would say that he is pulling people from all walks of life.

Most businesses have welcomed the settlement. Some are worried about other adjustments which have been made. What action is my honourable friend taking on adjustments to the overall settlement to take into account changes that the department has made which renders some of the settlements rather strange, by comparison. My honourable friend and I have spent many a happy time on the business reduction Bill which is coming back for its fourth stage this coming Friday.

Tesco has been accused of quietly reducing the size of its toilet rolls - by increasing the size of the hole in the middle. Keen-eyed shoppers reckon the cardboard tube in the centre has expanded by 1cm while the overall width has remained the same. The revelation comes after a number of brands and supermarkets have reduced the size of products or raised prices to offset the affects of Brexit. Tesco insists there has been no change to the nine-pack of Luxury Soft Toilet Tissue and...

If you’ve been riding shotgun with Petrolicious since the early days, you’ll recognize the name James Chen. If not, you need to catch up—we’ve featured not one , not two , but three of his machines in our Made To Drive film series. Founder of Axis Wheels , longtime friend of Petrolicious, and overall great guy, James Chen recently had the opportunity to experience a very intimate event through his home country: Rally Nippon 2016 in Taiwan. Mr. Chen was eager to share this incredible classic car contest with us and we’re sure glad he did, as it was quite the spectacle. Here’s the inside scoop from the man himself. Andrew Golseth: So, in 2016 the Rally Nippon Japanese event was held in Taiwan? James Chen: The story is a bit philosophical. I was born in Taiwan and moved to the United States when I was six. I try to go back on an annual basis. I’ve got some business interests over there and some family, so I go there once a year, or every other year.

com . Fans will get to see one of the nation's top tight ends when Alabama's O.J. Howard takes the field. The 6'6", 251-pound prospect hauled in an impressive 45 receptions this season for 595 yards and three touchdowns. He had four catches for 106 yards and a score against Clemson in the National Championship Game. Howard is more than just a pass-catcher, though. As Bleacher Report's Ian Wharton recently pointed out, he is a complete package at the tight end position: Pro Football Focus ( PFF College ) rates Howard first overall among all college tight ends for the 2016 season. Fans should get the opportunity on Saturday to see exactly why Howard is so highly regarded. Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky You'll be forgiven if you aren't too familiar with Western Kentucky offensive tackle Forrest Lamp, since Western Kentucky isn't always in the national spotlight.

To date, the EGA has improved hundreds of processes within the emirate’s government and while adoption of eGovernment services by some older generations has been slow, the clear majority of respondents are satisfied with overall direction of the initiatives. Other features of eGovernment initiatives in the UAE include one-stop shops, chat features and even text-to-speech features of the government’s website to help the visually impaired. By doing so, the normally conservative UAE has become one of the leaders in eGovernment services in the entire world. Focusing on Ras Al Khaimah, the emirate is one of the sleepier corners of the UAE with a population of slightly over 200,000. Located less than two hoursdrive from Dubai International Airport, the emirate is located at the northeast corner of the country and borders the Persian Gulf to the north and is the city is the closest port in the country to the Straits of Hormuz.

Our Trident nuclear deterrent is completely operationally independent of the United States. In our country, only the Prime Minister can authorise the firing of these weapons, even if they are employed as part of an overall Nato response. Can I congratulate my right honourable friend in the approach he has taken on this issue? I think the whole area of our independent nuclear deterrent is of crucial importance, and I think the argument that he has made about not being as open as he might perhaps have liked to be on the operational side is absolutely correct.

Just that image of Mr Adams and Mr McGuinness side by side with Mrs O'Neill, I think is going to be very significant for her here in that you have got a transition in leadership and Sinn Fein have been talking about this for quite some months now. Mr McGuinness stood down last week from politics because of ill health, Mr Adams is in his late 60s and has no plans to retire yet but he says sooner or later he will leave his job as Sinn Fein President, leading the overall party, and he's a member of the Irish Parliament in Dublin.

While your 401(k) is a long-term investment and you shouldn't make drastic changes every time there is volatility in the market, the new year may be a good time to rebalance so that your investments reflect your risk tolerance and other preferences. Be mindful of company stock allocations If you work in a sector that benefited from the rally - like industrials or materials, in addition to the ones I mentioned above - you might be tempted to allocate more 401(k) dollars to your company's stock. As a general rule, though, company stock should make up no more than 20% of your overall 401(k) portfolio. Review your beneficiary designations Did you make any major life changes in 2016, like getting married or divorced, or having a baby? If so, you may want to review your 401(k) beneficiary designations and make sure they're in line with your current situation.

Good to see you. This is the issue, isn't it, it is how much the Prime Minister knew about this test? I think that has become the issue. You have the two separate issues. You have the actuals of technology of the Trident missile itself and on but, clearly there was a problem with this test, but I think overall with the Trident system, there is no cause for concern.

Spicer’s claim that Trump’s inauguration crowd was the largest ever has been shown to be inaccurate through the use of aerial photographs comparing it to the 2009 inauguration of former President Barack Obama, which packed the National Mall with significantly more people than Friday’s ceremony. Calculating the overall global viewership for Trump’s inauguration would be nearly impossible, but in the U.S., it was viewed by 30.6 million Americans, according to Nielsen ratings. That would put Trump’s inaugural ceremony behind that of former Presidents Ronald Reagan (41.8 million viewers in 1981), Obama (37.7 million in 2009), Jimmy Carter (34.1 million in 1977) and Richard Nixon (33 million in 1973). The Nielsen numbers do not include viewers who watched on online livestreams, options that would not have been available to those watching most past inaugural ceremonies.

As Vice President of International, he helped expand the company's global presence, although it has yet to officially enter the U.S. smartphone market dominated by the iPhone and Android-based smartphones. Xiaomi has made inroads in other countries, including India, where it generated 1 billion in annual revenues faster than any company in the country's history. The smartphone maker has expanded into over 20 new markets overall, such as Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Russia, Mexico, and Poland. As I thought about this late last year, I concluded that Xiaomi is in a very good place on its global expansion path, and if there was ever going to be a good time for me to come back home, that time is now — when I can confidently say our global business is no longer just an in-house startup. In 2014, Xiaomi rose to become the world's third largest smartphone maker behind Apple and Samsung, but it has since fallen out of the top five vendors, according to the latest data from research firm IDC.

23 Jan 2017 from £271,146 When it was unleashed upon the world in 2011, the Lamborghini Aventador was at the cutting edge technically. And, of course, it looked a million dollars. But since then it’s been side-swiped by a tide of hybrid hypercars – to a point where it was feeling, if not looking, a bit sorry for itself by the end of 2016. So Lamborghini’s reaction to this gentle collapsing of its V12 range-topper is the car you see here: the refreshingly straight-named Aventador S. Technical highlights The big news technically about the S is its new electronic four-wheel-steering system. But as you can see, there have been numerous design changes as well, including a delightful new treatment around the rear wheelarches that is an unashamed nod to the Countach. In its new clothes the Aventador S also flows much more cleanly through the air. Thanks in part to a new active electronic rear wing, Lamborghini claims the S develops 130 per cent more downforce than before, and that it’s 50 per cent more efficient aerodynamically overall.
