Sissoko was impressive last summer for France at UEFA Euro 2016, but he has not replicated that form in the Premier League this term. The 27-year-old has started just six games in the Premier League this season, according to WhoScored.com , rising from the substitute bench on 11 occasions. In other Spurs news, the club are prepared to "cut their losses" with Vincent Janssen and move the striker on in the summer. According to John Cross of the Mirror , Spurs will attempt to sell the former AZ Alkmaar player before they have completed the payments of his instalment deal which brought him to the Lane. Janssen is yet to score from open play in England's top division and has failed to offer Harry Kane sufficient cover as an alternative striking option. Janssen's failure has seen Kane overused, and the England international has suffered injury at vital stages of the campaign.

Mexico stands alone atop the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 World Cup after scoring a 2-0 victory over Costa Rica on Friday night at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Javier Chicharito" Hernandez scored in the seventh minute and El Tri never relinquished the lead. The result leaves them as the only unbeaten team in the Hexagonal through three matches (2-1-0), which creates a promising path to qualification after narrowly making the cut four years ago. Nestor Araujo also scored for the Mexican side. The Ticos (2-0-1) drop to second place in the group with the loss. They were competitive throughout the contest, especially in the early stages, but giving up the second goal right before halftime was a major setback in their bid to earn at least a point. Chicharito put Mexico on the scoreboard early by capping off a terrific team play with a perfect chip.

“WE are going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” With those words the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, admitted that Republicans in Congress and President Donald Trumpproud author of “The Art of the Deal”—have failed their first big test as a governing party. For seven years Republicans have run against Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), calling it socialism, a government power-grab and accusing the law of institutingdeath panels” that could deny older Americans care by bureaucratic fiat. When Barack Obama was still in the White House and wielded the veto pen of a president, House Republicans voted more than 50 times to repeal the ACA, knowing that these were empty show votes. On taking power in January Republicans announced that their first priority was a law repealing as much of the ACA as possible, using fast-track rules that apply to certain sorts of budget bills, with some replacement elements to follow in two further stages.

Jacquard by Google has teamed up with Levi's to create a smart denim jacket, specifically with bike commuters in mind. The collaboration has been going on for quite some time—back in 2015, Ivan Poupyrev, technical program lead at Google's Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) division and Paul Dillinger, vice president of global product innovation at Levi Strauss Co spoke at our conference about the initial stages of the project. Now, two years later, the jacket is a reality and is set to release this fall. At first, the result of the collaboration just looks like a Fitbit sewn into a jacket sleeve, but the making of video reminds us that Jacquard by Google's mission is to seamlessly integrate tech into textiles. And their mission doesn't stop at conceptbelow you can see the surprisingly traditional methods used to construct the conductive yarn: The smart tag on the sleeve serves as a middle-man between the tech infused threads and the user's mobile device.

If the erosion of civil liberties and rising inequality characterize the state of the nation, democracy is both dysfunctional and illiberal. A state that strips away the civil liberties of its citizens via civil forfeiture, a war-on-drugs Gulag and unlimited surveillance may be a democracy in name, but it is at heart an oppressive oligarchy. If the super-wealthy continue to become ever wealthier while the bottom 95% of the citizenry struggle in various stages of debt-serfdom, the state may be a democracy in name, but it is at heart an oppressive oligarchy. Author/commentator Fareed Zakaria recently addressed the illiberal aspects of America's faded democracy in an article America’s democracy has become illiberal . Zakar's prettified critique avoided the real worm at the heart of our democracy: the state exists to enforce cartels. Some might be private, some might be state-run, and others might be hybrids, such as our failed Sickcare system and our military industrial complex.
