Trump wants to increase defense spending and request new money to build a border wall with Mexico. That, however, would require Congress to raise spending caps put in place years ago. In order to do that, Republicans would need the support of at least eight Democrats in the Senate, which is extremely unlikely at this point. Democrats typically demand dollar-for-dollar funding boosts for non-defense programs, such as transportation or housing, in order to support defense increases. They’ve also sworn to never support funding for Trump’s wall, something the White House wants to push for in earnest this fall — even at the risk of a shutdown fight. During Thursday’s House GOP conference meeting, Republicans harped on Senate rules requiring 60 votes for passage instead of a simple majority. They discussed the possibility of convincing Senate Republicans to go nuclear on spending bills, as they did to confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch — though that’s unlikely at best.

Money to be made For Louzonis, there is no question that there is money to be made in Ukrainian real estate. His agency focuses on Kyiv, where he says the simple logic of a lack of supply of good apartments in the city center means for the investor who is willing to put in the due diligence, the deals are out there. Not only are the values of centrally located properties likely to rise in the coming years, if you target them correctly they are rentable at rates which can comfortably yield 10 percent annual return on investment, he says. Such predictions come as Ukraine is experiencing relative economic stability and moderate growth following the steep downturn in the wake of the EuroMaidan revolution of 20142015. This means ex-pats from foreign governments and big corporations are starting to trickle back in, which for property investors is very good news.

The trips, which usually last two days, come in four price types: economy (Hr 1,090 for the first person, and Hr 790 for each other member of a group), standard (Hr 1,890 for the first person, and Hr 990 for each of the other travelers), comfort (Hr 3,190 for the first person, and Hr 1,790 for each of the other travelers) and expensive (Hr 9,990 for the first person, and Hr 4,990 for each of the other travelers). The price includes travel and hotel accommodation. The higher the price type, the better the level of tickets and accommodation. Kosianchuk and Klepyk say there’s a simple secret to the success of their service: Ukrainians are tired of bad news, they want a bit of positive changes.

If you're ready to jump on the fidget spinner bandwagon the toy craze that seems to be obsessing the nation but still don't want to shell out a hard-earned $5 or more for the funky gadget, then you're in luck. There are now official instructions for how to make your own fidget spinner using LEGOs, as posted on Reddit . (And if you don't have any LEGOs lying around, then at least you can invest in a box of the plastic pieces knowing they can be used for various other craft projects once your fidget spinning days have come to a close.) While these might be the official instructions from the toy brand, other LEGO lovers have been getting creative with their pieces for weeks, posting popular tutorials on how to construct all kinds of iterations of the toy. While most of the for-sale versions are simple plastic three-pronged trinkets, the variations available when you make your own are pretty much endless.

Musical note frequencies and 555 timer circuit The way to do it is simple really. Each music note has a corresponding frequency . For a desired note, your circuit need only cycle a speaker at that note's frequency. And a simple way to supply that frequency is using a 555 timer circuit in astable mode like the one shown. In the circuit, the output frequency is determined by capacitor C, and resistors R1 and R2. You can clearly see that dependency by looking at the frequency formula for the 555 timer's output. Resistances for musical notes and 555 timer circuit A typical way of manipulating that formula is to use a fixed value for R2, and then to add a different resistance to it for each desired frequency, as shown in the modified circuit. For now let's insert a variable resistor Rn. In the diagram you can see that we first added Rn to the frequency formula, and that we then rearranged the formula to solve for Rn instead.

Early detection is another critical priority, and a recent breakthrough in the form of a simple blood test has made lung cancer detectable with 92 percent accuracy . Researchers have also developed a way to detect esophageal cancer using a sponge on a string . Prevention is also on the medical agenda. Researchers have also discovered how to use CRISPR to target the “command center” of cancer in mice; this technique has been proven to shrink aggressive tumors in mice, who survived at an astonishing rate of 100 percent. Scientists have also been working to create a personalized cancer vaccine . While there's not yet any one best way to prevent, detect, or treat cancer, it's safe to say that genomics will continue to play a role in the best practices for fighting the disease. The change in focus away from the location of tumors and toward underlying genetics is absolutely essential to success.

Earlier this week, news started circulating that President Trumps proposed budget was based on a math error, a very large one, too. It turns out that the entire budget is based on a $2 trillion math error, said Stephen Colbert on Wednesday nights episode of The Late Show . While theoretically the budget is meant to boost economic growth enough to pay for $2 trillion in spending within 10 years, critics say it contained an accounting error that adds up to a $2 trillion oversight . Colbert had an idea about the source of the questionable computing. There is a simple explanation for how this happened: Donald Trump is an idiot, Colbert quipped, adding another possibility into the mix: Or, hes lying. While White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney stands by the numbers in the budget, saying during a press briefing, that the double counting was done on purpose because you don't want to make too many assumptions.
