In 2014, all leaders of the state BN unanimously agreed to Taib's hand-picked successor bypassing the question of seniority in PBB's hierarchy; when Abang Johari was appointed the chief minister last week, the seniority clause was invoked, and apparently with Taib's blessing. Taib's choice of Adenan as chief minister turned out to be a master-stroke for the latter was for all intents and purposes a brilliant and extraordinary leader for Sarawak. The only concern in everyone's mind was his poor health. He had for the past four years been using a pacemaker to stabilise his heartbeat to which he succumbed. In my conversations with some top people in Sarawak's corridors of power, I was told that Adenan had been pushing himself too hard, work-wise, for someone with such a heart condition. He had had a punishing time campaigning during last May's state election with his battle cry of appealing to Sarawakians to give him a fresh mandate and that he wanted to be chief minister for another five years only and no more.

Lithium, which is vital for rechargeable batteries in just about every device from phones to cars, could be extracted from the granite beneath Cornwall's landscape - making the duchy Europe's only source of the valuable material.

Bush or what Mitch McConnell did to Obama. “They’re scared of the unknown. This is a new world for them. And they’re trying to find solace in what they know,” Gallego says. Gallego points to his time as assistant minority leader in the Arizona legislature under an all GOP-controlled government, where Democrats held the line until splintered Republicans gave in, allowing them to preserve Obama’s Medicaid expansion. For what’s ahead in Washington, he’s pushing a kind of explanatory resistance, refusing any cooperation with Trump—“It’s very dangerous to give this man anything, because anything he does makes him more powerful, and he’s going to use power irresponsibly”—while using every fight as an opportunity to promote what the party stands for instead. Trump’s pledge to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure is one of those opportunities, Gallego says.

German Defense Minister Ursula Von der Leyen has announced that her nation will increase military spending by $2 billion in 2017, and another $2.2 billion on top of that by 2020, in an effort to get closer to the 2% of GDP spending level the US is demanding of NATO members. Germany is currently spending just over 1.2% of its GDP, which still amounts to one of the top 10 militaries on earth. NATO nations have been pushing to get the increases in with an eye toward selling President-elect Donald Trump on the idea that NATO is paying their fair share in the cost of the defense of Europe. Von der Leyen followed her announcement with a demand for Trump to make it clear what his agenda will be on foreign policy, insisting that Germany needs reliability. Other officials have repeatedly insisted that Trump will remain committed to NATO no matter what, and have downplayed his comments calling the alliance obsolete.

was expected to return to Indonesia this summer. MNC is investing between $500 million and $1 billion in the developments, one near Jakarta and the other in Bali. It is paying the Trump Hotel company to manage luxury hotels, golf courses and country clubs at the two sites. The properties should be open by early 2019, Tanoesoedibjo said. He demurred on how U.S.-Indonesia relations might change under a Trump administration except to welcome Trump's willingness to take on the United States' larger trading partners in pursuit of what he calls better trade deals. "When the U.S. is pushing too hard against another big country like China or maybe a European country that may create a situation where that country may shift their investment somewhere else," Tanoesoedibjo said, "and potentially to Indonesia." He said he would decide before the end of next year whether to run in Indonesia's 2019 presidential election, while describing Trump's victory as inspiring to would-be candidates with thin political experience.

Motorola started pushing Android 7.0 Nougat to the Moto G4 and G4 Plus in some markets, but not everyone has it yet. OTA updates are nice, but developers also want to have access to the open source code for system updates. That's at least available to everyone now in the form of a kernel source download. The code is available on Motorola's GitHub page. The archives contain code for both phones, which care almost identical save for the camera and fingerprint sensor.

Over the past few months there's been an increasing amount of politicians and groups who have been pushing for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Recently there have been a number of headlines in America media addressing concerns about the GOP's plans to defund the organization. One of the main reasons many Republican politicians want to defund Planned Parenthood is because they offer pregnancy termination services. However, Planned parenthood offers a variety of healthcare services that many American's turn toward on a consistent basis, both for themselves and their families. With the Affordable Care Act under attack, many Americans - men, women, and those within the LGBTQ+ community - cannot afford to lose Planned Parenthood. It's important to understand exactly what would be lost in the eradication of such a prominent organization, so here's a few services that will no longer be available to the public if the GOP plan to defund goes through.

So he has this deep fear that he is himself not a legitimate president, and I think that’s why he goes to such great lengths to delegitimize even the intelligence community, which is the president’s key resource in security, and he’s going to do this demeaning and delegitimizing behavior rather than accept what they have to tell him. Blair: I wanted to go back to one of the words that Michael used, which was “gaming the system,” which is so much a part of his dad’s—what Fred Trump did, what Donald has done. Looking for the loophole, pushing it as wide as possible, going through it. Donald did it through his whole career. His dad did it through his whole career with his use of federal subsidies and tax abatements. And now we’re seeing that he’s gaming the White House. He’s gaming, looking for the loopholes. The president is exempt from these conflict of interest laws.

Elon Musk is not one to let setbacks slow him down, even when setbacks involve the explosion of a rocket containing cargo precious to fellow tech billionaire Mark Zuckerberg. As of this week, SpaceX, where Musk is CEO, is back in the business of launching rockets. And Musk is pushing ahead on his outsize ambitions for the company. After 17 successful launches between 2012 and 2015, SpaceX initially planned to launch 20 rockets in 2016. Largely because of the aforementioned explosion the company's second rocket loss in two years it managed only eight. On Twitter, Musk called the Sept. 1 incident the most difficult and complex failure we have ever had. But if last year ended on a sour note for SpaceX, 2017 is starting off with more promise. After spending months investigating and resolving the issues that caused the September explosion, the company launched a Falcon 9 on Jan.

Tests of more than 150 homes around Flint have shown that a vast majority of residences are below federal limits on lead and copper and that bacteria levels are also dramatically lower than they were a year ago. But the group has yet to come to a consensus that the water is safe to drink and appears hesitant to do so anytime soon despite the recent test results. Everyone is erring on the side of caution, Edwards says. Some residents, however, are highly skeptical of those findings. Melissa Mays, a local activist and organizer of the group Water You Fighting For?, is pushing for more extensive testing for homes in Flint to check for bacteria like Legionella, which led to a local outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease that followed the water switch in April 2014 and killed 12 people. Mays says she still develops a rash from water in her home and questions the official findings about improving water quality.
