Breitbart’s editor-in-chief Alex Marlow called out Milo Yiannopoulos comments about pedophila as “indefensible,” “troubling”, and “upsetting” on the company’s daily radio show on Tuesday morning. But Marlow also defended the Breitbart senior editor, columnist and overall provocateur as a victim of a coordinated attack whose “appallingwords needed to be understood in context of Yiannopoulos’s personal history. It was something that was a total surprise to people in the Breitbart organization that there is video that surfaced that appeared to show him justifying sex between an adult and a minor, at least in certain circumstances which was very troubling and upsetting,” Marlow said on the radio show. He seemed to be speaking from personal experience as a gay man, he also revealed he’s a victim of child abuse himself. He himself told me he’s never had inappropriate contact with a minor since hew as an adult…it’s all very upsetting and something we take very seriously at Breitbart.

For years, prominent Jewish institutions have been purveyors of violence against dissenters of all stripes, including Jews of Conscience, especially on the issue of Israel-Palestine. Is what goes around, coming around? There are too many examples of incitement against Jews of Conscience by Jewish institutions and Jews within institutions beyond the Jewish community to recount in full. As an early dissenter on the Israeli policies against Palestinians, I relate to this incitement in a personal way. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, those hopeful years of the first Palestinian Uprising, I published Toward a Jewish Theology of Liberation. There, I argued for a just resolution of the Israeli-Palestine conflict as a moral and ethical imperative for Jews. After all, whatever Jews thought about the founding of Israel and its flourishing, there could be no denying that what happened to Palestinians in that founding what was happening to Palestinians now was wrong.

It’s up to you. There’s price, quality, and there’s a personal choice.” Yandex.Taxi rolled out in Lviv on Feb. 17, and the city became the fifth in Ukraine in which the Russian taxi operator operates. The service has been expanding in Ukraine more aggressively than its direct competitor Uber, starting operations first in Kyiv, and then in Kharkiv, Dnipro, and then Odesa. Uber currently operates only in Kyiv and Odesa. “Yandex.Taxi started badly in Lviv,” said Sadovyi, saying that the operator illegally set up dozens of ad banners throughout the city. However, most of the illegal ad have now been taken down, the mayor said. Kyiv Post staff writer Denys Krasnikov can be reached at krasnikov@kyivpost.com .

It's powered by three microphones in each bud, which pick up nearby sound and process it at lightning-fast speed before passing it along into your ears. It has the potential to give people mastery of their personal soundscapes, letting us turn down the volume of honking car horns, airplane engines or, yes, the can't-hear-yourself-think cacophony of a crowded bar. Doppler also wants users to be able to control how much outside noise they hear along with their music a roadside jogger, for instance, might want to hear some traffic noise for safety's sake. There's a health angle to be considered as well: Prolonged exposure to high-decibel sounds can result in hearing problems down the road. (That said, the Here Ones aren't designed to help with hearing loss the way hearing aids do.) Doppler, which previously made fancy earplugs for concert-goers, is getting much closer to its true vision with the Here One.

But no college will now want Yiannopolous within a mile, and conservatives wouldnt dare criticize them for keeping him away ― as they have in the past ― because theyve now silenced Yiannopolous themselves at CPAC. He is essentially shut down from organizing at the very venues that were his life blood, where he promoted racism and misogyny and brought in youth for Trump. This episode also means that Bannons zeal, and his distrust of anyone who would help in vetting people and ideasevidenced by his getting Trump to rush out a Muslim ban days into the administration, without the agencies given input ― could be his downfall, as well as Trumps. In the meantime, we should count it as a victory that Flynn and Yiannopoulos, both dangerous, have crash-landed. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Did you write any of these stories on a typewriter? TOM HANKS: I wrote notes and a few pages on an actual typewriter. But come on, for the heavy duty work, it was laptop all the way. Typewriters are for personal letters, for musings, for rambling stream-of-consciousness stamped-in-paper doodling. What was your most unexpected source of inspiration? The smallest, most distant of memories as well as those haunting questions about why things come about. What would you see at the 1939 Worlds Fair that would change your life? I remember a ride in a small plane when I was 7 years old why was it was confusing? How did a veteran of WWII celebrate Christmas in say, 1953? What kind of research did you do for the collection, if any? References to certain facts are all google-able. (Laptop!) Which characters voice was the trickiest to get right? Every damn one of them.

Until now, the enforcement of summary deportation laws, known as expedited removal, have been limited to those apprehended within 14 days of illegally entering the country and within 100 miles of Canada or Mexico. The memos signed by Kelly would allow use of those laws anywhere in the country against anyone who entered illegally within the past two years. Lucas Guttentag, a DHS adviser and Stanford law professor, said this would unleash chaos, violate due process, and meet challenges in court, similar to those that scuttled the administration's travel ban. There would also be aggressive challenges, lawyers said, to plans that would allow immigration agents to deport unaccompanied minor children who crossed the border illegally, rather than uniting them with parents or other relatives in the U.S. They also expect legal opposition to a proposal that would strip undocumented immigrants of existing privacy protections, allowing personal information such as asylum cases or immigration violations to be publicly disclosed.

Rees : True, they could do some routine nursing. But I think people prefer real human beings, just as weve already seen that the wealthiest people want personal servants rather than automation. I think everyone would like that if they could afford it, and everyone in old age would like to be cared for by a real person. Görlach : In your opinion, what mental capacities will robots have in the near future? Rees : I think it will be a long time before they will have the all-round ability of humans. Maybe that will never happen. We dont know. But what is called generalized machine learning, having been made possible by the ever-increasing number-crunching power of computers, is a genuine big breakthrough. These structures of machine learning are a big leap, and they open up the possibility that machines can really learn a lot about the world.

KUALA LUMPUR: Actress Lisa Surihani will advocate the rights of children across the country in line with her appointment as the new United Nations International Children's Fund (Unicef) Malaysia ambassador today. The appointment was announced by Unicef Malaysia representative Marianne Clark-Hattingh here. Lisa told reporters at the event that she had always been interested in issues affecting children and young people in Malaysia. "And being a Unicef ambassador presents the perfect opportunity for me to get involved on a personal level," she said. She added that of particular interest to her was the need to address child sexual grooming through social media as she called for comprehensive action from the relevant parties to tackle the issue. "Back then, our parents would always tell us not to talk to strangers but the challenge now is different in the presence of gadgets and social media platforms," she said.

Healthcare is one of the most regulated environments given the sensitive patient data that must be secured and protected. Despite significant protections over the last few years, health providers and payers in the industry are being subjected to an increasing number of cyber-attacks. Healthcare providers need to consider end-to-end security of their IT infrastructure more than ever. With Windows 10 being the most secure version of Windows ever, we continue to hear from our healthcare customers who want to know how Windows 10 meets the technical and administrative safeguards required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) which provides data privacy and security provisions for individual personal health information. While a number of the HIPPA requirements are not relevant to an operating system such as organizational documentation retention policies, a significant number remain important.

Sundays Oscars loom in the shadow of Donald Trumps fledgling presidency. As with every awards show this year, we can expect a night of equal-rights diatribes mounted in resistance to the regressive legislation and callow disregard for tradition that has defined the Trump administrations debut. But before arriving at the annual ritual, we will have already seen one of the most politically driven Best Picture debates unfurl in the media. This time, its personal. Perhaps more than ever, the Best Picture contest seems to double as a referendum on our cultures conscience. Its bigger than the Oscars, just as Beyoncé losing Album of the Year to Adele was bigger than the Grammys . If movies are statements about the world around us, then one purpose of the Academy Awards is to adjudicate the years best cinematic manifestos.
