The respondents spent an average of 66 minutes per day reading, watching or listening to election news, of which 25 minutes were on social media. But when asked which were "most important," the top information sources were cable TV, network TV, websites and local TV. Social media was the fifth most important news source, cited by 14% of those polled. The study was based on an online survey of 1,208 US adults the week of November 28 – three weeks after the November 8 election. Even though Facebook has brushed aside criticism over its role in the spread of fake news, the world's biggest social network has nonetheless taken a series of initiatives since November aimed at curbing the spread of misinformation and hoaxes. — AFP

" A record nine drivers won a grand prix in 2016 and Rossi expects another open championship. "Maybe nine different riders is hard because it is very strange, but it is good for MotoGP. I think at minimum six riders can win this year." Rossi has finished second in the championship each of the last three seasons, but it was 2015 that stung the Italian most as he was involved in a series of bust-ups with Marquez, including kicking the Spaniard off his bike in Malaysia as Lorenzo came from behind to snatch the title by five points. And with the far less experienced Vinales, 22, now by his side, Rossi is hoping for less drama this season. "The rivalry on the track is always very hard, especially with your teammate. "After there is a different relationship off the track. I think we can have a good relationship, yes (with Vinales). "From 2013 when I went back to Yamaha my relationship with the racers was not so bad for all the years.

Your prayers are working: 41 and Mom are doing much better today and fighting on, he said in his first public comments about their illnesses. Bush said he and former first lady Laura Bush look forward to representing them at Trump's inauguration Friday in Washington while they continue to recover in Houston. Even though he was hospitalized, the elder Bush's Twitter account was active Thursday, offering hearty congrats to former Houston Astros baseball player Jeff Bagwell on his election to the Baseball Hall of Fame. McGrath said while Bush did not physically type the tweet, he did approve it from his hospital room, calling the Astros' former slugging first baseman a good friend and great player and praising his election Wednesday to Cooperstown. Bush was a first baseman when he attended Yale, and was captain of the Yale team that played in the first College World Series in 1947.

At the most it was a trigger, but certainly not the reason, he said. The avalanche certainly would have come down sooner or later, but the distance from the epicenter is quite substantial. Marcella, the restaurant owner, said he received the call from Parete at around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. The chef reported that all of the guests had checked out and were waiting in the front hall for the roads to be cleared when the avalanche struck. Parete was being treated for hypothermia at a hospital in Pescara. The Romanian foreign ministry reported three Romanian citizens were among the missing in the hotel an adult and two children believed to be Parete's family. The mountainous region of central Italy has been struck by a series of quakes since August that destroyed homes and historic centers in dozens of towns and hamlets. A deadly quake in August killed nearly 300. No one died in strong aftershocks in October, largely because population centers had already been evacuated.

However, for now the TV industry is becoming increasingly focused on OLED and its technical possibilities. While not exactly panel-less, LGs paper-thin W-Series OLED TVs are just 1 mm thin and flexible making them a nice compromise between traditional larger LCD screens and projectors. So what do we think the future of TV will entail? Its probably not huge panels, or pricey projectors, but something in between. Want a 4K projector right now?
