The only mystery is how he will go to the toilet, with the artist becoming uncharacteristically evasive when pressed on the subject. Loneliness should not be a problem, he said. When he was buried under a rock outside a gallery in the southern city of Marseille, former prisoners who had survived solitary confinement came to keep him company and a "young girl talked to me about the violin she had just bought for three hours". - Walking on clouds - In fact, so many people came to "talk to the stone" that security guards had to be stationed around the rock at night so he could get some sleep. The real wrench this time may be having to leave the rock after the week, Poincheval admitted. After previous performances, the end has always been what he called "delicate", marked by a "day in the dumps... and a lot of turbulence inside. It takes several weeks to get back to normal," he told AFP.

We have chosen to post this in a section of the conference dedicated to education, he said. Specifically, I want to influence elementary school teachers, grades K-6, on the definitions that they can teach their students. This is not the first time someone has proposed a definition other than the one proposed by the IAU. But few people have talked about education. They talk among their peers and little progress is made. I wanted to post this in a section to reach teachers. In accordance with the definition proposed by Runyon, bodies like Ceres and even the moon would be considered planets. Credit: NASA/ JPL/Planetary Society/Justin Cowart Naturally, there are those who would raise concerns about how this definition could lead to too many planets. If intrinsic property of hydrostatic equilibrium is the only real qualifier, then large bodies like Ganymede, Europa, and the Moon would also be considered planets.

Markets believe that the trend is your friend. And they see high economic growth, central banks still supporting markets. So far, the politics are being messy, but contains. I would price in a higher political risk, I would caution people to take more seriously what we are seeing, but markets by now are not. If Christian and I had money at our disposal, would you advise us at the moment to put it in the markets? No, I would tell you hold onto it, the markets have come very, very far very quickly. We have yet to see policy announcements translate into design and implementation. This is complicated and there are two major headwinds. One we have already talked about, politics, and the other was mentioned at the beginning, the dollar.

“Over 20 million will lose coverage and with all due respect, sir, you’re the man who talked about the death panels. You’re going to create one great big death panel in this country for people can’t afford to get insurance.” Back in 2009, Grassley accused Democrats of crafting legislation that would allow the government to “decide when to pull the plug on grandma.” That fed into fears of what Sarah Palin and others calleddeath panels.” There’s no such thing in the health law, but the line inflamed fears of rationing and ignited the intense opposition to Obamacare that remains to this day. On Tuesday, Grassley tried to reassure the crowd that packed the community hall, saying that three of the four main GOP health care plans circulating on Capitol Hill would preserve Obamacare’s most popular provisions: pre-existing condition protections, the prohibition on lifetime limits and the ability of young adults to stay on their parentshealth care plans.

By Robert Parry, the investigative reporter who many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s. Originally published at Parry’s Consortium News (republished with permission). In the anti-Russian frenzy sweeping American politics and media, Democrats, liberals and mainstream pundits are calling for an investigative body that could become a new kind of House Un-American Activities Committee to hunt down Americans who have communicated with Russians. The proposed commission would have broad subpoena powers to investigate alleged connections between Trump’s supporters and the Russian government with the apparent goal of asking if they now have or have ever talked to a Russian who might have some tie to the Kremlin or its intelligence agencies. Such an admission apparently would be prima facie evidence of disloyalty, a guilt-by-associationcrime” on par with Sen.

Plenty of musicians have extended their brands into the world of books but few have achieved the literary accolades of John Darnielle, founding member of the Mountain Goats . The folk musician published his first novel, Wolf in White Van , in 2014. The story of a post-apocalyptic role-playing game invented by a teenager with a disfigured face became a New York Times bestseller and was long-listed for a National Book Award. Darnielle's follow-up, Universal Harvester , about a video rental store in 1990s Iowa where strange scenes start turning up on the tapes, comes out this month. TIME talked to Darnielle about the Midwest, genre fiction and the political role of literature. TIME: What was the origin of this novel? Darnielle: If I hand in an album, and the album is mastered and its done, I start writing new stuff. So when Wolf in White Van [was done], I was waiting to hear from my editor, and in the mean time, I just started writing.

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers have talked about a swap that would bring Blake Griffin to Boston, per Zach Lowe of ESPN, though any deal is a longshot: They have talked intermittently with the Clippers about Blake Griffin in recent weeks, per several league sources, but a deal is extremely unlikely. Griffin will be a free agent this summer, and Boston would probably need official permission to talk to him about his future -- a concession Minnesota allowed Cleveland before the Kevin Love trade. The Clips would ask for a bounty, starting with Jae Crowder and one of the Avery Bradley/ Marcus Smart duo, plus picks, per league sources. More to follow.

The ADL Monday called again on the Trump administration to develop a plan to address what some believe is a recent rise in anti-Semitism in the U.S. At a Washington news conference last Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump was asked about increase in anti-Semitic incidents throughout the U.S. Rather than condemn the acts, Trump instead talked about his electoral college victory and described the question as unfair, prompting more criticism that he had been silent about the apparent rise in anti-Semitism in the U.S. Earlier Monday, Trump's opponent in last November's election, Democrat Hillary Clinton, called for the president to take a stronger stand against anti-Semitism.

Losing weight is tough, but keeping off the weight over time is even harder. The vast majority of people who lose weight gain it back, which is why weight loss maintenance is an area scientists and doctors are always looking into. Now, in a new study, researchers suggest that special programs designed for weight loss maintenance are critical for helping people reach and sustain their weight goals . After people lose a substantial amount of weight, they tend to regain it at a rate of about 2 to four 4 lbs. a year, say researchers of a new study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine . To assess whether a post-weight loss program could help people prevent the weight from creeping back, the researchers split 222 people into two groups. All together, they'd lost an average of 16 lbs. during a 16-week weight loss program. Then, about half were assigned to a program that focused on helping them maintain the weight they lostthey had frequent phone calls with experts who talked to them about how to stick to their diet in social situations where temptation may be strong, told them to weigh themselves frequently and asked them about the good things that have happened to them as a result of their weight loss, and so forth.

The White House is open to making recess appointments to fill some administration positions, according to Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump. Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, speaking to Conway for his show on Tuesday , suggested that the White House consider the maneuver to fill out some political posts, citing obstruction from Senate Democrats, and Conway responded that “everything’s on the table.” “I think if you nominate the deputy secretary of state, the deputy secretary of defense, the undersecretary for policy at DOD ... a solicitor general, perhaps, that might be of particular interest to you, they can all be recess appointment on March 22,” Hewitt proposed. “Have you talked about that? Would you push that, because we’ve got to stand up this government, and Senate Democrats are not going to do anything to assist us in getting going.
