He sure ain't wrong about everything. In fact, his not all that surprisingly successful career helps illuminate the realities of our situation. Whereas President Barack Obama, as much as I continue to like him, tended to distract from some harsh realities. His presence has made things seem better than they were. A year after the curdled satire of CSNY's once hopeful ' American Dream ' album, Neil Young in solo mode released the corruscatingly angry rock anthem ' Rockin' In the Free World .' He and Trump feuded ferociously over Trump's seemingly bizarre attempt to use it as his 2016 presidential campaign theme song. Now we know we're in trouble. Meanwhile, Trump's transition is staggering into his presidency. Aside from the headliners at Defense, State, and the National Security Council, Trump is amazingly going forward with virtually no subcabinet for his geopolitical team.

Though Nintendo's big presentation last week shed plenty of light on the upcoming Nintendo Switch , we're seemingly still learning new things about the system - even if by accident. A leaked image posted on Twitter shows the handheld/console hybrid in action, showing off not just a few of the games we can expect to play on the system, but also something a little more low-key: a "Change User" prompt. The image below was originally posted by Nicalis, Inc., the publisher behind the Switch port of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+. The post only went up for a bit before the company deleted it. Credit: Nicalis, Inc. (via Twitter) If we're interpreting it right, the Change User function could mean the Nintendo Switch is capable of tracking multiple users on one device. If true, the feature would certainly be a plus for families hoping to share a console, as well as possibly making transferring account info from one Switch to another less of a pain, seeing as the current method allows only one Nintendo Network ID to be tied to a single Wii U or 3DS system.

The Dish AirTV set-top box caught our attention during CES 2017 for its ability to merge live over-the-air channels with Sling TV 's internet cable service into one 4K-capable Android TV player. However, it seems the key all-in-one feature setting the AirTV apart from the crowd is actually unavailable at launch, according to Zatz Not Funny! Customers claim that searching over-the-air channels on their AirTV - rather than integrating with the same guide as their Sling TV channels - instead open a separate Live Channels app on their Android TV. Some discontented users took to Twitter, in which Sling TV CEO Roger Lynch clarified to one customer that the model demonstrated at this year's CES was using beta software not included in the launch model. To clarify: the AirTV is seemingly still capable of showing local channels for those using the over-the-air antenna adapter, but it currently doesn't integrate those channels with the Sling TV guide as demonstrated - making it not quite the all-in-one cable-cutting solution some customers were hoping for.

Eerily, you will find stories similar to these going back for decades. In 1991 for example, Carl Campbell shot U.S. Navy commander Edward Higgins at a bus stop outside of the Pentagon at least five times with a 22-caliber semi-automatic pistol for seemingly no reason. The federal judge who oversaw the case found Campbell not guilty by reason of insanity when it later came out that Campbell believed the government had implanted a computer chip in his brain to control his mind. The inauguration is tomorrow Not only does this threat come just days before the inauguration, but it comes weeks after another man claimed he was ordered to assassinate Donald Trump and killed a random stranger in a Walmart parking lot whom he believed (and reportedly still believes) was the president-elect. A British teen was arrested this summer for attempting an assassination on Trump at a Las Vegas rally as well.

Not every musician is too proud to play for Donald Trump ! After the golden politician had trouble getting A-list talent to sing at his Friday inauguration, it was looking like the only performance of the ceremony would be Trump pretending to seem presidential. Eventually, the bronzed businessman managed to secure some notable performers at his inaugural, but even those B-list musicians dropped out over the backlash they received. Related: Trump Tweets About Speech Writing From Winter White House'! Now descending to the depths of obscure R&B singers and oh-yeah-I-forgot-about-them rock bands, Trump has seemingly found loyal musicians who are very excited to perform... not for him, of course -- but for the country ! Both 3 Doors Down and Chrisette Michele have gotten heat after signing on for the orange troll's swear-in ceremony , but the band and singer want you to know they aren't doing it for incoming POTUS.

During Obamas first term and into his second, the number of judicial vacancies skyrocketed, not because there werent nominees, but because Republicans blocked votes indiscriminately. Regardless of whether the nominees were for a district court or a circuit court of appeals, regardless of their records, regardless of anything said in their committee hearings, and regardless of whether Republicans supported or opposed them on the merits, all nominees found themselves part of a deliberately-created bottleneck designed to ensure a maximum number of vacancies for the next president (who they hoped would be a fellow Republican). The few times they agreed to have votes, most of the nominees were confirmed with strong Republican support. Seemingly impossibly, things got worse when the GOP took over the Senate after the 2014 elections. During the 114th Congress, the Senate confirmed only 18 district court and two circuit court judges for a total of 20, the lowest number since the 82nd Congress of 1951-52 during the Truman era.

Louis to Los Angeles in 2016 and the Chargers joined the Rams in L.A. from San Diego this year. Per Benjamin Allbright of 104.7 FM in Denver , some Raiders players are already looking forward to the prospect of playing in Vegas: Assuming the move occurs, the Raiders will become the second major professional sports franchise in Las Vegas, as the Vegas Golden Knights will begin play as an NHL expansion team in 2017-18. The Raiders have a lengthy relocation history already, as they went from Oakland to Los Angeles in 1982 before moving back to Oakland for the 1995 season. Nothing is official until the league vote happens, but with seemingly no plans in place to keep the team in Oakland, a third move appears to be on the horizon. Follow @MikeChiari on Twitter.

Exit Stage Left: Lights Go Out On Biden As He Talks Of USLeadershipIn Davos Speech It may have just been coincidence, or perhaps something more symbolic, but whatever it was, Joe Biden saw the lights go out on him as he mentioned USleadership” during his last major speech as vice president, in Davos, Switzerland. “ We are going to retain our position of leadership ,” Biden was telling the audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos, when the lights on stage began to dim. Rendered a dark silhouette, and seemingly unimpressed, the outgoing vice president carried on talking about the West’s ideas and visions of the world. “ If we dont fight for our values, no one else will ,” he said from the darkness. Moments later the lights came back on, allowing Biden to proceed with his rather dark warnings to the world. Biden used his final major speech while in office to accuse Russia and President Vladimir Putin of “ purposefullyaiming to “ collapse the liberal international order .

Time and again, the Obama administration has ignored the comprehensive nature of the Iranian threat and soft-pedaled non-nuclear sanctions seemingly out of fear that Iran would walk away from the nuclear deal. As a result, and much to the worry of America's traditional allies, Iran's leaders have become more emboldened and its footprint continues to grow across the region. In the past, we have spoken publicly about the flaws of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which in the end has not halted but only delayed Iran's path to a bomband at the considerable price of abandoning Western leverage against Iran. To respond effectively, the Donald Trump administration should not rip up the deal on day onethat would make U.S. actions and not destabilizing and threatening Iranian behaviors the issue. We need to isolate Iran, not ourselves.

ESP woes Some owners have had problems with the Hill Hold Assist and the ESP seemingly not working. Testing the latter isnt easy, though. Interior Packed with high-quality materials and neatly designed, the Rio’s dash is clear yet far from bland. It also feels durable, plus the seats are comfortable and the rear offers lots of room for two adults. Boot space is good, too: with the back seats up, capacity stands at 288 litres; fold them and you get 923 litres. Image 6 of 12 Image 6 of 12 Running costs All petrol Rios need maintenance every 12 months or 10,000 miles; diesels stretch this to every 20,000 miles. Services on petrol cars generally cost between £101 and £182, but the fourth check-up is priced at £265. Maintaining the diesel models costs between £42 and £159, with the fourth service pitched at £254. All Rio engines are chain-driven, so there are no timing belts to replace, but the air-con should be regassed every three years (at £50) and the coolant renewed every 10 years or 120,000 miles.

The US claims the reasoning of this program was to keep the weapons away from more radical groups but, even Secretary of State John Kerry has admitted ( behind closed doors ) that many allied rebel groups have worked with terrorists known to use chemical agents. In what seems like a possible response to these new revelations by the Syrian army, Western media began throwing around their own allegations of supposed proof of the use of Bashar Assad and his brother being tied directly to the use of chemical weapons. Yet, as with much of the previousevidence’ against the Syrian government this is seemingly another loose accusation backed up by nothing. The allegations stemmed from a Reuters piece published on Friday , which basically said that a Reuters reporter had heard about some solid evidence from someone. According to the article there was a list of commanders who authorized the use of chemical weapons that was “seen by Reuters but has not been made public.

One of these is a topic of special interest to me - the technology behind the digital currencies like Bitcoin called the blockchain. Together they are creating entirely new capabilities and dramatic impacts on, well, just about everything - our political, social and economic systems and the future of civilization. This Fourth Industrial Revolution brings disruption and a human cost along with its seemingly limitless applications. Soon the rise of "smart factories" may replace factory workers, leaving millions unemployed. And it's not just blue collar workers either - technology is now targeted at the heart of professions from doctors and druggists to limo drivers and airline pilots. In the past years at Davos, most people argued that like all of the revolutions that came before it, this one will displace old industries with new ones and overall contribute to jobs and prosperity.
