The pomp and circumstance ended in pandemonium in the White House briefing room. President Donald Trump’s staff teased the press all afternoon on Friday about whether Trump would sign executive orders. “A possibility,” said Press Secretary Sean Spicer. “Potentially,” said strategic communications director Hope Hicks. “Dont start drinking yet,” said deputy Communications director Raj Shah. The back-and-forth ended with Trump signing an executive order allowing federal agencies to disregard provisions of the Affordable Care Act. In the hours leading up to Trump's signing, Spicer emerged repeatedly, without warning, to address the press in the briefing room, prompting reporters to run through the corridor and push each other out of the way. He announced, at first, that Trump would sign two executive orders. Then he announced there’d be three actions – and in the end, only one of them was actually an executive order.

That cloud is starting to be eroded away, and I think Southern Scotland will fare better in the sunshine and probably Northern Ireland as well. Underneath that high pressure area, squeezing out the moisture that will form into fog potentially overnight, and where we have the brakes on the cloud in northern Scotland and Northern Ireland and again across eastern England, perhaps north-eastern England into East Anglia, and virtually frosty everywhere.

APPLAUSE. Mark Urban, our diplomatic editor, joins me. Essentially, this was his foreign policy that he laid out. Absolutely, in five statements. National interest first, protectionism and all of it, not seeking to impose our system on others, rejection of the George W Bush doctrine in Iraq and elsewhere, but also comforting words for Russia and China potentially.

*This is a re-post combination of two of our previous articles. The first half deals with ADHD and the second half deals with depression Putting a child in a classroom for 8 hours a day, for more than a decade, and expecting them to listen while remaining obedient' is very unrealistic. From day one we are taught that this is the only path to success and we are shown the consequences of not paying attention. It's important to recognize that it's perfectly normal for children to struggle with paying attention to something that they are not even remotely interested in; this doesn't necessarily mean they have a disorder and it doesn't mean they require (potentially quite harmful) prescription medications. It's Okay If Your Child Struggles With Attention This Does't Mean They Have A Disorder Many doctors and teachers are already aware of this, but I would like to reiterate the point — just because your child struggles with paying attention in school or sitting still in the classroom does not mean there is an underlying disorder to blame.

The team did take steps to prepare nominees for their appearances on Capitol Hill. The nominees were subjected to “murder boards,” three-hour mock hearings where they were grilled by volunteers standing in for senators. The nominees collectively took thousands of questions from almost 200 participants, according to the transition team. A person who worked on DeVospanel said she was extensively questioned on education issues, and the team was privately disconcerted that she seemed to flub answers. One attorney running the murder boards for the transition team had been confident about secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson based on his unflappable demeanor in multiple practice sessions. Yet, Tillerson's hearing was messy, as his waffling answers on his approach to dealing with Russia drew scorn from Democrats and Republicans alike. Less was done to help uncover the potentially embarrassing or damaging information that’s come out.

Potentially he will do the same. Adam, you said if you were a betting man he would do that, and he has. We are not disappointed. He has followed tradition, one of the few traditions that he is holding up. It is interesting to see that his wife Melania Trump is braving it, in spite of her blue high heels.

No Iranian leader would sit down for further nuclear negotiations with the Trump administration, let alone sign off on a deal more favorable to the United States. That would leave the businessman and former reality TV star with some very difficult decisions. Would he accept Iran moving forward with its nuclear program, potentially advancing toward an undetectable capability to obtain a nuclear weapon? Or would he pursue a dicey military option that might set back Iran's nuclear capabilities, but ultimately radicalize Iran and do nothing to prevent Iran from reconstituting its nuclear program further down the road? Despite vows not to go in search of enemies abroad, Trump could end up repeating the mistakes of the Iraq war with Iran. This makes it more important than ever for those lawmakers in Congress who oppose the U.S. backing out of the JCPOA to hold the line on bad legislation, and to put pressure on Trump's advisors to stick to the accord.

Ideally it's that last one, because it means you also bought yourself some time. But if you used your everyday credit card, whether for cash back or travel rewards, you're potentially paying an average of around 19% in interest annually . That can get costly, depending on how expensive your holiday tally was and whether it added to a balance you were already carrying. If you're getting buried by interest charges on that card, explore your options for debt consolidation. More on that later. >MORE: NerdWallet's best balance-transfer and low-APR credit cards If you used a store credit card, make sure you understand what you're on the hook for, and when. Many store cards may allow 0% financing through a "deferred interest" offer, which sounds similar to a 0% APR introductory offer you might see from a general-purpose credit card -- but it's not the same thing.

Some it is lower than the national average. Some it is level slightly above but overall the trend is down. That is very concerning. We are worried that we could potentially see more women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and more women will lose their lives from it. Had we encourage book an appointment at a GP surgery.

The snack machine was employed numerous times, less for nutrients than for a way to alleviate boredom. Just as they had exhausted both themselves and all items in the snack machine, they were informed that DIL was being taken in for an emergency C-section. Now a new topic of conversation was introduced: how the human body, deprived of sleep and operating on the nutrition provided by Cheezits, would deal with a potentially serious situation. The answer was: hysteria. By the time the surgery was completed, neither LBL nor Mom of DIL were coherent. YC came into the area and yelled, "She's out! You can come in at 10:05 for a few seconds to see her!" At 10:03, LBL ran down the hall, followed by Mom of DIL. By the time the women reached the labor/delivery room, all bets were off. They ran into the room. Mom of DIL pushed the doctor aside, while LBL grabbed for the baby, hugged YC, and yelled "I love you so much!" to DIL.
