We would certainly seek any and all information and documents, recordings etc., which may be relevant to the litigation of our lawsuit, Allred said when asked about seeking the outtakes. So, we’ll have to see what the reaction of Mr. Trump’s attorney will be to that…..and we’ll see what NBC decides if, as of when, they are served with a subpoena. Asked why the suit was being filed three days before Trump's inauguration, Allred was vague, but said her client chose to wait to see if Trump would retract his denials. The question is: why now? My answer would be: why not now?” Allred said. There's no good time. There's no bad time. But we have waited two months and time is up. Allred said she, Zervos and other Trump accusers plan to attend the women's march on Washington taking place Saturday as a protest against Mr. Trump's inauguration.

Al Salman said that Noor Salman was physically and mentally abused by Mateen and that she stayed with him for fear of losing custody of their son. A judge scheduled another hearing Wednesday to discuss her possible release ahead of trial, her transfer to Florida to face the charges, and the appointment of a lawyer to represent her. Charles Swift, director of the Richardson, Texas-based Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, planned on representing her at that hearing, said public defender John Paul Reichmuth, who served as her attorney during Tuesday's proceedings. Linda Moreno, a Florida attorney who also represents Salman, said after Salman's arrest that the widow had no foreknowledge nor could she predict what Omar Mateen intended to do that tragic night. Salman told The New York Times in an interview published in November that she knew her husband had watched jihadist videos but that she was unaware of everything regarding his intent to shoot up the club.

Otherwise, we – as well as other skeptical Americans – will be left with the corrosive suspicion that the intense campaign of accusations is part of a wider attempt to discredit the Russians and those – like Mr. Trump – who wish to deal constructively with them. Remember the Maine? Alleged Russian interference has been labeled “an act of war” and Mr. Trump a “traitor.” But the “intelligenceserved up to support those charges does not pass the smell test. Your press conference on Wednesday will give you a chance to respond more persuasively to NBC’s Peter Alexander’s challenge at the last one (on Dec. 16) “to show the proof [and], as they say, put your money where your mouth is and declassify some of the intelligence. …” You told Alexander you were reluctant to “compromise sources and methods.” We can understand that concern better than most Americans.

On-location film and TV production hit record levels in Los Angeles last year at least in recent years thanks in large part to the state's upgraded $330 million annual film incentives program. On-location feature film production was up 6.2% over 2015, and on-location TV production was up 4.8%, despite a weak fourth quarter. Last year, L.A. saw 39,605 on-location shooting days, defined as one crew's permission to film at one or more locations served by FilmLA , the...

S. uses to pick its presidents. Trump is set to become the country's 45th president as he is sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington. Despite the negative perceptions of him, the Post-ABC poll found that a majority of Americans are optimistic that he will be able to meet his campaign pledges to boost job growth in the U.S. and deal with the threats of terrorism. His worst ratings came on handling race relations and issues of concern to women. The poll found that only 44 percent of Americans believe that Trump is qualified to be president, compared with 52 percent who say he is not. The 52 percent unqualified figure, however, is the best recorded since he became a candidate a year and a half ago. Only 4 in 10 of those polled approved of Trump's choices for his Cabinet, with many of them older white men who have collected vast riches over decades of running businesses and have not previously served in the U.

At the state level, Reyes has been active on issues like white-collar crime and human trafficking, and one of his earliest moves was to head to court to preserve Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage. Despite his positions, some tech giants have tried to cozy up to Reyes. Facebook, for example, wrote a $10,000 check for the attorney general in October, according to Utah campaign finance data. Microsoft wrote a $1,000 check that month. Before becoming attorney general in 2013, Reyes served as general counsel for eTAGZ, a local media and technology company. His resume includes time spent as a partner at Accelerate Ventures, where he focused on legal issues facing the investment community. The FTC’s current leader, Democratic Chairwoman Edith Ramirez, has said she plans to resign on Feb. 10. After her departure, the agency will have three vacancies: two Republican slots, and one Democratic opening.

Cohn, a registered Democrat , is particularly worrisome considering he still works as Goldman SachsCOO (Chief Operating Officer), a top position. Regardless of who won the 2016 election, apparently, Goldman Sachs has retained its influence — just as it did throughout the Obama administration, demonstrating the financial gianthacked’ not just the 2016 election, but also the 2012 and 2008 elections, as well as others before. Goldman Sachs employees were top donors to Barack Obama in 2008 and also contributed to his campaign in 2012 . John McCain and Mitt Romney also received funding from the company. Once elected in 2008, Obama lined his cabinet with former employees of major banking firms who cashed in on government bailouts and donated to his campaign. For example, Rahm Emanuel, who served as his chief of staff from 2008 to 2010 before successfully running for mayor in Chicago, had previously been on Goldman Sachs payroll, both during his time in the Clinton administration and when he was an elected congressman.

Likewise, an on-line charitable auction for a 45-minute coffee date with Ivanka Trump was cancelled after ethics questions were raised. The high bidder had offered $72,888money lost to the beneficiary the Eric Trump Foundation. (Both Eric and his father subsequently announced plans to shutter their charitable foundations.) Franklin Roosevelt would sympathize. At the time he was elected president in November 1932, FDRs oldest children, Anna, James and Elliott, were in their early 20s. Two younger sons, Franklin, Jr., and John, were still in school. James and Elliott had long served in supporting roles, quite literally, as their fathers assistants whenever he needed to appear to be able to walk. The polio-paralyzed Roosevelt would use a cane with his right hand and hold onto the arm of one of the boys with his left as he swung his braced legs from the shoulders down.

It's often right before dinner is served that I start to think about breakfast. It's about 12 minutes before hangry energy sets in, 10 minutes before I gussy up a plate of food for myself, and 20 minutes before I'm full once again and breakfast is a distant future thought. There's that special time when I try to sort through the clutter of my fridge in my mind's eye and dream up tomorrow's future. Continue reading Chilaquiles Frittata Bake at Joy the Baker.

“The Times currently devotes too many resources to low-value editing — and, by extension, too many to editing overall,” the memo said. “Our journalism and our readers would be better served if we instead placed an even higher priority on newsgathering in all of its forms.” Baquet and Kahn were more blunt in their memo: Let’s not be coy. These changes will lead to fewer editors at The Times. One of our overarching goals is to keep as many reporters, photographers, graphics experts and videographers on the ground as possible. One overarching theme of the report is that the Times needs to focus on revenue from readers, and place less emphasis on revenue from advertisers. To that end, the report clearly states that the Times “is a subscription-first business,” and should not emphasize pageviews. That being said, the company “is in the latter stages of creating a more sophisticated metric than pageviews, one that tries to measure an article’s value to attracting and retaining subscribers,” per the report.

The only sound was the lapping of the water against the hull as we tucked into giant prawns, fresh sushi, chicken skewers and ice-cold beers. Food with a view From the UK, the trip to Lizard Island involves a 24-hour flight, an internal transfer and then a small plane ride to the resort itself - a 36-hour door-to-door trip that is worth it for the resort's breakfast alone. The meal we were served on our first morning - poached egg with sweet baby tomatoes, cod roe, smashed avocado and sweetcorn fritters - easily made into my list of top five breakfasts anywhere in the world. Dinner, which is also complimentary, is the work of head chef Mark Jensen, whose menus combine his love of Australian ingredients with a broad palette of Asian and Mediterranean flavours.

Najib said this at a gathering with the people at the Kuala Ketil public field here, whch was attended by more that 23,000 residents from the Baling parliamentary constituency. Also present were Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah and Baling MP Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim. Najib explained that the opposition parties were also seen 'chaotic' when it came to issue involving the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) Haj programme, as there had been differences in opinions among their leaders. He said Dr Mahathir had been vocal in criticising the Haj programme whereas the latter's own deputy Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, who is also his (Dr Mahathir's) son used to send 20 representatives from Kedah to join the programme when he (Mukhriz) was the mentri besar of the state. Therefore, the prime minister urged the people to have confidence and faith that the Barisan Nasional (BN) and Umno today are the best and most reliable political (coalition and) party that had served them well.
