’ … ‘New York is extremely intense and competitive, but it is actually a much smaller pond than Washington, where you have many more players with access to many more sources,’ said Howard Wolfson, who has split his career between New York and Washington, advising former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. ‘In New York, you can create a manageable set of relationships in a smaller universe,’ Mr. Wolfson said. ‘In Washington, that becomes a lot more complicated.’ There is another fundamental difference: During his Page Six days, Mr. Trump was, by and large, trafficking in trivia. As president, he is dealing with the most serious issues of the day. They involve the nation’s safety and prosperity, and it is the role of news organizations to cover them.” http://nyti.ms/2lcZfSP -- CORRECTION TO THIS STORY: “Because of an editing error, an earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to Sean Spicer’s upbringing.

Having his second start in nine months, after an early season setback, Werther looked to have a fairly prosaic assignment ahead against just six rivals but the cakewalk looked more like a sleepwalk at the...

The nano-satellites, Nair pointed out, have a short useful life after which they become junk that will keep floating in space for years in the same orbit with chances of colliding with ISRO's operational satellites sharing the same space. "The debris that these nano-satellites will leave after their brief existence in space are potential source of damage to us. Safety of our satellites is more important," Nair maintained. He cautioned that ISRO should carefully weigh a few million dollars of commercial gain from launching foreign nano-satellites into 500-km orbits against the potential harm to the present and future Earth observation satellites close to their lanes. He also noted that in case of a future collision between the debris from any of these nano-satellites and a working satellite belonging to another country, India will have to pay for the damages.

On the "committee for public safety" were ringleaders from Indonesia, Bolivia and Venezuela whose fathers had overthrown their governments. We promised "full democratic elections" at some vague point in the future – a nice touch of cynicism worthy of a Bolivian or Argentine junta. I also organised student protests against the French colonial war in Algeria that earned me frequent death threats from "La Main Rouge", an extremely violent false front for the DGSE, French intelligence, themselves a bunch of wild and murderous cowboys. I was young and fearless in those days; now I'm not young but still fearless and reckless. Ecolint had been founded to educate children of Geneva-based United Nations personnel and, of course, to promote international understanding. What we really cared about in those ancient days was of course girls. Ecolint was coed.

GEORGE TOWN: The public seems to be in two minds over what to do with am ailing 130-year-old tree at the entrance of the Penang Botanical Gardens. Some of people theSun spoke too wanted the tree to be chopped down for safety while others expressed their hope the tree could be retained or a replacement one be planted. Adrian Toh, 55, said there was no doubt in his mind the tree has to go and be replanted with a new tree to preserve the feel of the popular recreational area. The businessman said the rain tree, which was planted in 1887 to commemorate the birthday of Queen Victoria, was symbolic but safety came first. "There is no other choice," he said when met today. Ahmad Bakar, 45, echoed similar sentiments saying that safety should take precedence over sentimentality. "Who will be responsible if something happens? The lives of the people must be taken into account," the trader said, Yeoh Kim Bok, 57, nonetheless urged the authorities to do all they can to preserve the tree due to the historical significance.

NEW DELHI: From next year onwards, scheduled flight operations will be allowed from defence airports only if they have been certified by DGCA, according to the civil aviation ministry. With certain issues still to be sorted out between civil aviation and defence ministries, the deadline has been extended to December 31, 2017, a senior DGCA official said. The initial deadline lapsed on December 31, 2016. In a notification issued earlier this month, the civil aviation ministry said scheduled flight operations will not be permitted from any airport, including defence aerodromes, from December 31, 2017, unless such aerodromes have been certified by the DGCA. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is the regulatory body governing safety aspects of civil aviation and approves flight schedules, among others. "... no person shall operate scheduled air transport services to and from an aerodrome, including defence aerodromes, with effect from December 31, 2017 unless it has been either licensed (aerodrome) or certified (defence aerodrome) by the director general of civil aviation," the notification said.
