"Those are all parts of our experience. But, there's no real good place for us to share those." Harris said that the pro-choice community should concede certain rhetorical points to the pro-life community, adding that abortion is an inherently violent act and a form of "killing." She said that abortion doctors "see the fetus the same way" that pro-life activists do, but that should not stop pro-choice advocates from defending their position. "Given that we might actually both agree that there's violence in here, ask me why I come to work everyday," she said. "Let's just give them all the violence, it's a person, it's killing, let's just give them all that." Neither the NAF nor Planned Parenthood returned request for comment.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin discussed his status Thursday following a stay in drug rehabilitation. According to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine , Martin believes the treatment was highly beneficial: "It was a journey of self-development. It was definitely hard being away from my friends and family. I found strength in the people I was with around the time. It was definitely worth it. I definitely turned a negative into a positive and I'm out here and I'm definitely a stronger person because of it." He also credited quarterback Jameis Winston, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and the rest of the Bucs organization with supporting him: "I had a lot of support with my teammates, with Jameis and Gerald. They did a good job of rallying behind me, coach [Dirk Koetter] and [GM] Jason [Licht] as wellI'd like to thank them for standing behind me and for the support of the fans.

Don't forget that actually what has happened over the past five years is the cut in police on a bus, chief constables are having to make very difficult decisions, that has involved cutting our firearms capability and embedded neighbourhood policing. It is not about having police officers responding to calls but having people who know your communities, asking the question is, why hasn't this person been seen? All of this kind of stuff is very difficult to measure of course, in terms of outcomes and key performance.

The Lightbulb The lightbulb moment. Its presence in the retelling of scientific discovery is universal. From cartoons to documentaries, we see depictions of scientists' eyes suddenly sparkling, a lightbulb popping up over their head, and Eureka! escaping their lips. It's a moment we are all familiar with, but what is it, really? Is there some scientific reason behind this eureka moment or is it just a trope in media? Well, both. Some argue that it's impossible to exactly pinpoint and record idea creation and discovery, but we can get pretty close. Using the power of modern technology, scientist have been able to look at brain scans of a person in the midst of idea creation. They can see activity taking place in the right hemisphere, so clearly, we do have at least one way to observe creative thinking processes, even if the picture it provides is incomplete.

Very rarely does the same person make the bomb that actually delivers it. So there may well be a bomb-maker somewhere. It would be quite surprising for a terrorist to make one bomb. I would anticipate that there's more likely to be other devices. At this moment, we haven't found the bomb factory

As the sounds of war outside gradually fade away, Khan puts his radio set on a coffee table next to a Kalashnikov assault rifle, and sinks back into his comfortable chair. “Well, you guys know what a peaceful person I am. I'm even afraid of blood,” he says smiling, and his young soldiers laugh in the half-dark. The fighting is over for now, and the soldiersminds are turning to food. “A kitchen is the most important place at war,” says soldier Valery Fedan as he stands by a gas stove frying potatoes in a pan. At the Promzona positions, the soldiers cook for themselves in small groups. As Fedan cooks, a couple of other soldiers sit at a table strewn with rifles and water bottles. “Sometimes, some of us have to bring food to the guys in the frontline trenches,” Fedan says. “And as you do it, your main mission is to try not to drop hot fried potatoes when jumping in front of separatists — and not to get shot, of course.

“With the same budget one can rent bigger and better place than in a remote city district.” Ripka agrees, saying that another trend is that people try to rent flats not far from their work. Iryna Hudz recently rented a one-bedroom apartment for Hr 7,000 near a metro station to have a shorter commute to work. It was important for her to rent a flat with good repair and a pleasant landlord. Both her expectations were met. “My landlord is a very pleasant person who has willingly made concessions during our discussion about the conditions of apartment rent. He even agreed to half the rental price if I buy furniture or technical devices for the flat,” she said. Rental market prospects The Kyiv’s rental market is still busy and the rental prices do not scare off potential tenants, says Ripka who often happens to have up to 15 property viewings per day in Kyiv.

The bill would require the US president to block the property of any person or entity involved in specific activities that violate the United Nations arms embargo on Iran. It is also expected to impose sanctions on any entity involved in Iran's missile program and those who trade with them. US lawmakers, who backed the bill, said they believed that the bill would not violate terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, including the US. However, critics are concerned that the new measure can undermine the nuclear agreement. The JCPOA was inked between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council the US, France, Britain, Russia and China plus Germany in July 2015. The accord took effect in January 2016.

“Also, in my understanding and experience, banks don't provide mortgages here (at least not at affordable rates), so you generally need to pay the full price in cash,” Gracia said. American independent filmmaker Chad Gracia at work tutoring filmmaking in America House in Kyiv on April 18. (Courtesy of 86festival/Facebook) Halyna Teryayeva, the owner of Terezy (Sales) real estate agency in Kyiv, told the Kyiv Post that due to the economic crisis in Ukraine, a land plot in Kyiv Oblast could be a very profitable purchase for a foreigner. And the only documents a person need to become a landowner in Ukraine, apart from a passport, is a Ukrainian tax code, which can be easily obtained from State Fiscal Service of Ukraine. “The price is really affordable. The client purchases the land plot, but for that price, he can even get an old nice house that can be renovated.
