As the Los Angeles Lakers seek ways to improve their roster after missing the playoffs each of the last four seasons, Brandon Ingram is the only player currently on the team whose spot is safe. Per ESPN's Jorge Sedano , Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson said Ingram is " the only player he would not consider moving" in a potential deal. Other young players the Lakers have tried to build around in recent years include D'Angelo Russell and Julius Randle. Russell did show improvement in his second season, leading the team with 4.8 assists and ranking second with 15.6 points per game. The Lakers own the No. 2 pick in this year's draft and have been heavily linked to UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball. ESPN's Chad Ford reported Los Angeles is "enamored" with Ball. Russell is also a point guard, so that could create a potential log jam if the Lakers are able to select Ball in the draft next month.

In recent years, high-ranking officials in the U.S. military have argued that more preparation for space defense is essential, especially in light of the development of anti-satellite weapons in China and Russia . If taking out satellites effectively renders our troops helpless, it is a smart strategy for enemies to adopt. Click to View Full Infographic Furthermore, the threat would stretch far beyond the battlefield, as Ed Morris, the executive director of the Office of Space Commerce, wrote in the report, A Day Without Space: Economic and National Security Ramifications : “If you think it is hard to get work done when your Internet connection goes out at the office, imagine losing that plus your cell phone, TV, radio, ATM access, credit cards, and possibly even your electricity. The threat of warfare and aggression in space — and the need to prepare for it — has been broadly recognized all over the world.

"I spoke to my team about that, I wanted to get back to work. To do that, I have been training very hard, spending a lot of time practising and working on my game. "That's the best way to get your confidence back." - Balancing act - After crashing out in the third round of the Madrid Masters earlier this month to unheralded Borna Coric, Murray acknowledged his slump in form was a cause for concern. He also suffered a shock fourth-round exit at the Australian Open to Mischa Zverev in January and told AFP that it was a tough balancing act between missing tournaments to recover while also trying to retain his prized top ranking. "If you miss a lot of tournaments your ranking drops and people say, 'He's only ranked number seven in the world, he's not that good.' "But to get the balance of playing enough to stay at the ranking you maybe deserve or the level you feel you're playing at, and to take enough rest so you're able to maintain your best level for long enough, is always a challenge."

There were no further attacks following that incident, although it is thought to be linked to a car bomb that was disabled before it could detonate in central London the previous day. The threat level was downgraded to severe five days later. How do other countries measure terror threats? USA : In the US, the Department of Homeland Security operates the National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS), which issues public alerts when it has information about a specific, credible threat. Unlike the UK's system, NTAS is specifically designed to give the public practical tips and to share details where possible of the type of threat that exists. NTAS has three categories of severity: elevated, intermediate and imminent. It replaced the colour-coded ranking of terror threat introduced by George Bush after 9/11, which was criticised by political and satirical commentators for the administration's perceived use of the system to justify counter-terror crackdowns.

By Daniel Korschun, Boryana V Dimitrova, and Yoto V. Yotov | (The Conversation) | U.S. News and World Report recently published its annualBest Countriesranking, based on how thousands of people around the world perceive other nations. Switzerland topped the 80-country ranking, followed by Canada and the United Kingdom. One big surprise was that the United States fell three spots, from fourth to seventh. The U.S. received poor marks for business friendliness, respect for human rights and democracy, and educational quality. These results align with another ranking from Forbes showing the U.S. in decline. Reputational rankings and similar “best of” lists surely make for interesting dinner conversation, but they do beg an important question: Does a country’s reputation really matter? The three of us, an economist and two marketers, decided to examine how a change in a country’s reputation might affect its trade relationships.

7. Play the long-term game When you conduct keyword research, think about those keywords that bring actual value to your website and business. The most popular ones are, of course, long-tail keywords. They might be harder to fit in, but “how to create great content” will bring you more (targeted) traffic than “great content.” As a rule of thumb, instructional articles (how-to pieces) are excellent for your long-term strategy. There will always people searching for information and you’ll always be there to deliver it. Next up: update your old content. Make sure that all the links you inserted are still valid. Update your research quotes. And dont forget about the basics: you have a new idea that could enrich an older article, add it. The higher the word count, the better your ranking and, thus, the more organic traffic you will get. Getting organic traffic is all about quality Before you spend ages trying to get links and even pondering black-hat SEO techniques (by the way, they are NEVER a good idea), work on improving your content quality.

Many women, including high-ranking dignitaries, have visited the pontiff with their heads uncovered, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015 and Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's top civilian leader, this month. Many women wear veils out of respect. Mrs. Trump is Catholic, which likely made accompanying President Donald Trump for a meeting with the leader of the world's more than 1 billion Roman Catholics all the more meaningful to her. When a Vatican official handed her a rosary, the first lady immediately gave it to the pope to bless. She spent time in front of a statue of the Madonna at the Vatican's children's hospital and laid flowers at its feet. She also prayed in the hospital chapel. Every woman in the US delegation wore a veil, including Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter who converted to Judaism before marriage. In Saudi Arabia, the first lady dressed conservatively for her arrival Saturday in the capital of Riyadh.

President Donald Trump's U.N. envoy set foot Wednesday in the no-man's-land between Syria and Turkey, witnessing the precarious transfer of aid supplies into a seemingly interminable conflict. That reality is far removed from America's years-old hope for President Bashar Assad to leave power and speedily end the civil war. From the Syrian side of the border zone, Ambassador Nikki Haley gazed up at a Turkish flag plastered onto signs marking the entrance into that nation's territory. Syrian refugees once flooded through the run-down Bab al-Hawa Border Crossing until officials cracked down. These days it's only aid convoys that pass back and forth, trying to meet an unrelenting demand for food, health supplies and other basic needs in the Arab country. Ferried to the border in an armored motorcade, Haley walked to within just a few feet of entering the Arab land, becoming the highest-ranking U.
