We can be just as competitive as other countries... Rick Rowlands supported him precisely because he was a billionaire businessman, and he's been impressed with how the President-elect has fought during the transition to keep car manufacturing jobs in America. We were a manufacturing powerhouse at one point. When you say we're going to make America great, well, maybe that means we're going to restore that sense of optimism in people, that, yes, tomorrow will be better than today.

It's been all to obvious for a very long time, long before his "shock" election as President of the United States, that Donald J. Trump was far more than an entertaining carnival sideshow. But it has also been obvious that Trump is a sort of political carnie, a larger than life character always out to get the best of the marks. Perhaps he learned a lot with his failed Atlantic City casino project after all. There's a now longstanding pattern to this political carnie's approach to policy. It's a kind of perpetual short con -- thus a de facto long con based on the media culture's ADD nature, which Trump understands better than anyone -- called the shell game. What, precisely, is Donald Trump's policy on anything? You may think you know, based on where you think the metaphorical pea (i.e., the policy never laid out in concrete detail) is. But Trump is constantly moving the shells about.

Shes referring to Sonys LSPX-W1S 4K ultra short-throw projector the only other such product on the market which does indeed sell for precisely $50,000. So how much is the 100H10D? Hisenses effort will cost just $12,999.99 when it launches in the US in summer 2017. Sonys effort can manage a 147-inch image from even closer to the wall and is best put on the floor rather than on a table. Although Hisenses 100H10D is far cheaper, it could also find a challenger closer to home. Another Chinese vendor ChangHong has also been making short-throw products, says David Tett, Market Analyst at Futuresource . Its a phenomenon that started in China because of the inability of some people to hang a 65-inch TV on the wall for structural reasons, so it addresses that.

The NPD sufferer will say whatever feels most comfortable or good to him at any given time. He will lie a lot. As Ziehl says, "if you're trying to reconcile or analyze his words, don't. Only address his actions...If he gets enough accolades for better behavior, he might continue to try it. But don't count on it....Entitlement is a key aspect of the disorder. He will not observe traditional boundaries of office. He states that rules don't apply to him...It's very common for non-disordered people to lower their own expectations and try to normalize NPD behavior. DO NOT DO THIS AND DO NOT ALLOW OTHERS, ESPECIALLY THE MEDIA, TO DO THIS . Pay attention to your own emotions: do you sort of enjoy his clowning? is this kind of fun and dramatic, in a sick way?" How then do we cope with such a leader and his basket of deplorables? (don't listen to your critics Hillary, you precisely nailed Trump's whole tawdry crew).

The best free PDF to Word converter If the precise formatting and fonts of a document are essential, PDF is the perfect format. It requires nothing more than a competent PDF reader for documents to display precisely; everything's packaged in and ready to go. Which is all lovely until you need to extract some of that information. PDFs are usually a one-way street, consigning you to look and not touch. Unless you possess the original document used to generate the PDF in the first place, editing is going to be out of your reach. Or is it? We're here to look at the solution: free PDF to Word converters. These tools will analyse PDF files, extract the text and images, and make the best stab they can at creating a Microsoft Word-compatible file that replicates the source. Bear in mind that even with the best free PDF to Word converter, results are unlikely to be absolutely perfect particularly if the text in your PDF has been scanned or flattened to an image.

ACLU attorney Hina Shamsi expressed disappointment in the Obama team’s decision to keep fighting for secrecy in the targeted killing effort, even as it is handed over to President-elect Donald Trump “At a time when even more transparency is urgently needed about what the Obama administration did and the rules that will govern the Trump administration’s lethal strike policies, this is a step in the wrong direction,” Shamsi said in an interview Thursday. Shamsi said she, too, remains in the dark about precisely what the government is objecting to in McMahon’s ruling. “The significant redactions in the judge’s opinion make it hard to know It appears that the judge thinks the role of particular agencies in the lethal strike program process should be made public as, potentially, should acknowledgment of the existence of a program in Pakistan. We do not know yet what the government is specifically seeking to appeal, yet it appears to continue to fight disclosure about the fundamental decision-making procedures and locations of a program the world knows exists but the details of which the government still seeks to hide from the American public,” Shamsi added.

While there has been such a slew of books and television programs about barn finds that the subject has its own genre, it stands to reason that not every derelict car can actually be discovered hiding out in a proverbial barn waiting to see the light of day: some may be hidden away in (almost) plain sight, under vegetation, in fields, under tarps, or behind an abandoned gas station. And this is precisely what author and photographer Heribert Niehues discovered when he took it upon himself to bring to light just a fraction of these undoubtedly countless decaying husks laying around the United States. Each of the chapters in Rost in Peace depicts a region that Niehues visited during his journeys around the United States – the West, the Midwest, and the deep South – and from the ordinary to the collectable, he photographed cars and trucks he happened upon that have, for one reason or another, become forgotten.

There was some welcome news for the Prime Minister almost immediately, when the Finance Minister of Australia - the UK's 19th biggest export market, worth £4 billion a year - said a trade deal could be done very quickly. We don't know precisely yet what will be involved in the process, in terms of Britain exiting the European Union, but what I would say is that there is lots of goodwill, lots of strong goodwill on both sides of the equation.

This was due to the fact that the Testarossa, like many other sports of the era (such as the Alpine A310 V6 and the Peugeot 205 T16), had the famous Michelin TRX fitted on. These tires were developed in 1975 and are still remembered as the first low profile tires on the road, and the first developed for a specific rim (and vice versa). The TR of their name comes from “Tensionpartie” to indicate that their construction and special design allow for a better distribution of the stresses on the tire, while the letter X indicates them to be radial tires. The standard size of these tires, in the case of the Testarossa, was 210 TR 415 / 240 TR 415 and required specific rims, developed together with – and for – these tires, with a diameter of 16,33inches. It was precisely this, the fact that these tires require non commercial rims (and vice versa, to change the tires you need four TRX made APPOSITAMENTE for you) to condemn them; the second series of the Testarossa was already equipped with rims with a standard diameter of 16 inches.

-- she is. I think to some degree she is but the speech will be framed differently to how it was in the UK. We are now right in the middle of the congress centre where the speech will be happening. You can see people filing into that speech at the moment. This is the World Economic Forum. These are delegates who are very keen to listen to the Prime Minister and to hear precisely what she has got to say about what Brexit will mean not just for the UK and the people of the UK, but the rest of the world as well.

Rather than diffusing controversy and polarisation, it seems as if statistics are actually stoking them. Antipathy to statistics has become one of the hallmarks of the populist right, with statisticians and economists chief among the variousexperts” that were ostensibly rejected by voters in 2016. Not only are statistics viewed by many as untrustworthy, there appears to be something almost insulting or arrogant about them. Reducing social and economic issues to numerical aggregates and averages seems to violate some people’s sense of political decency. The declining authority of statistics is at the heart of the crisis that has become known as “post-truthpolitics Blindness to local cultural variability is precisely what makes statistics vulgar and potentially offensive Statistical data is only credible if people will accept the limited range of demographic categories that are on offer Continue reading...

Trump himself has made similar statements about affordability that lack specificity about how, precisely, the GOP will make that a reality. A recent report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office predicted 18 million people would lose insurance in the first year the law is repealed, and that premiums would rise by 20 to 25 percent in the non-group market. The report predicted repeal would result in 32 million people losing insurance over a decade. But Pence, like Trump, said a replacement would be passed nearly simultaneously with repeal. A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found the Affordable Care Act is at its peak popularity, with 45 percent of Americans considering the law a “good idea,” and 41 percent considering it a bad idea.

It's precisely that sort of arbitrary, baseless policing which leads to people resisting arrest. If cops suddenly decided Dallas Cowboys hats weren't allowed in the subway, I'd probably resist their orders, too. Last year, three performers reached an unlawful arrest settlement from the city totaling $54,000 stemming from incidents in 2013 and 2014 with the NYPD. In the more recent episode, a guitar player, Andrew Kalleen, was playing in a near empty subway station in Brooklyn when cops violently arrested him. In the 2013 incident, a pair of hip hop performers were arrested and run for warrants repeatedly by a commander who allegedly couldn't believe "a young black man" didn't have an open warrant. They were detained for 24 hours and released with loitering charges that were eventually dropped. In all of these cases, every charge was ultimately dropped, which suggests that performer busts are little more than expensive bouts of clumsy police-baton-swinging contests, perhaps driven by quotas, that ultimately put the taxpayers on the hook for lawsuits.
