TO the surprise of absolutely no-one, Vern Cotter declined to indulge in tearful farewells or self-aggrandising speeches yesterday after naming the last Scotland team of his three-year stint as head coach. The New Zealander has never been comfortable with talking about his own role in the progress made by the team, preferring to deal with practicalities - and this week there were more than a few practicalities to be sorted out before he could settle on the squad to play Italy tomorrow.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz decried what he called insincerity on the part of the Democrats over their criticism of Trump's attacks on judges , noting that they had raised questions about the role of dark money in groups supporting Gorsuch's nomination. These are serious attacks, many of them impugn your integrity directly, Cruz said. My colleagues the Democrats have a right to engage in whatever attacks they choose. But its a little rich for them to be maligning a sitting federal judge and at the same time giving speeches about how unacceptable it is for anyone to criticize a federal judge. Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse echoed Cruz's criticism, saying what some Democrats have been saying about Gorsuch is reckless and imploring Democrats to not split in a party-line vote on his confirmation. If [people] see something like Republicans voted one way and Democrats voted another way, and they have echoing in their ears the sounds of people saying that you [Gorsuch] are some sort of a shill for big business and the American people should be scared of you, we will have done in this body something to further erode the public trust, he said.

On a requisite YouTube channel , for instance, Bayancuk's talks and speeches are freely availabe and accessible, which are also being propagated by various twitter and facebook accounts. As a result, Bayancuk (or Ebu Hanzala) appears no different from the myriad of Islamic proselytizers that have crept up in today's post-Kemalist Turkish reality. Two names stand out in this respect: Adnan Oktar (aka Harun Yahya ) and Cübbeli Ahmet Hoca. The former achieved some international notoriety with his many glossy publications extolling the virtues of creationism (such as his notorious Atlas of Creationism , with unsolicited copies being sent to scientists and politicians around the world, such as Hillary Clinton, back in 2007). Oktar is also well-known for his ad hominem attacks on Charles Darwin (and what he calls Darwinism) and his contemporary supporters like Richard Dawkins.

His speeches have consistently demonized Muslims; he’s even called for Hindu icons to be installed in every mosque in India. His views on women’s issues are equally clear and dispiriting: Theirenergy” must be “channelled and regulated” so they can give birth to great men. Uttar Pradesh is vast. Were it a separate country, it would be the world’s fourth-largest democracy. Its population is young, growing and jobless. Yet Gorakhpur, the northeastern city which Adityanath has represented for five terms in Parliament, is far from a model of development; it’s in fact one of the most depressing places I have ever visited. Industry and investment have passed it by. People talk in hushed tones of the power of the temple that Adityanath heads, and of the dreaded militia through which he rules the area. Some observers think Modi is showing his real colors.

Cole-Hamilton. So, these islands run through me. Their history inspires me but also haunts me, and I recognise that there are times in a parliamentarian's career that he makes speeches he wishes he had not tried to learn off pat and had actually brought with him into the chamber. But I reflect on this union of nations, and that.

people decide. Please close. Please sit down. I notice the last two speakers have gone well over. Can I ask people to stick to six minutes, and may I also request those in the public gallery to please refrain from clapping or otherwise in relation to any of the speeches. Thank you.

This Vox video illustrates the fact that type design was the true culprit in last month's Oscars cockup, and how easy it would have been to prevent. But backslapping award shows are only the beginning of bad design when it comes to type. The 2017 Oscars ended with a pretty shocking mix-up. Announcer Warren Beatty incorrectly named La La Land as the Best Picture winner, and the mistake wasn't revealed until crew members had already started giving their acceptance speeches. A lot of things went wrong for the snafu to happen the way it did. But what if typography was one of them? A better announcement card design could have made for a very different Academy Awards show — not to mention a much less embarrassing Miss Universe show for Steve Harvey back in 2015. But the implications of bad typography don't end there: poorly designed ballots in the 2000 presidential election arguably could have swayed the outcome, and illegible type on medicine bottles could be causing nearly 500,000 cases of drug misuse per year in the U.

How ISIS depicts women in its official propaganda tells us a lot about the role it sees for female members of the group. In Women and Jihad, Women & Girls Hub speaks with researcher Charlie Winter about the power of the extremist promise. In the years since it emerged from the ashes of the militant group al-Qaida in Iraq in 2010, the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) has revolutionized the art of jihadist messaging, producing propaganda on an industrial scale. In place of the grainy videos and stagnant speeches of Islamic insurgencies that came before (think back to a seated Osama bin Laden threatening the West with a blank wall in the background), ISIS has brought its mission firmly into the 21st century with professionally produced newspapers, glossy magazines and stylized videos and photos . Designed to shock and inspire in equal measure, they depict in graphic detail the Islamic utopia the group promotes.

bring more of an army bias. He is also a relative newcomer to the House. As a relative new boy myself, could I see the logic's houses taken a bit of the kicking in the press that having sat through most of this debate I have been impressed by some of the excellent speeches. Interesting, well-informed and informative. I will.
