Today we seem to be thinking of nothing but the rights of foreigners... My Lords. People of nationalities of other countries within the union of foreigners. I thank the noble Lord and I would like to asking him to protect the argument further about protecting the rights of UK citizens. What would he say to a UK citizen married to perhaps a German or Dutch national and now worried about the rights to remain and to work and to live in this country? That is exactly what the Prime Minister has said.

The time for small thinking is over. The time for trivial fights is behind us. We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts. The bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls. And the confidence to turn those hopes and dreams to action. From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears –- inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past –- and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts. I am asking all citizens to embrace this Renewal of the American Spirit. I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold and daring things for our country. And I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment and Believe in yourselves. Believe in your future. And believe, once more, in America. Thank you, God bless you, and God Bless these United States © ZeroHedge.com The post Key Highlights And Full Text Of Trump's Address To Congress appeared first on MintPress News .

Unless you want to risk... If you are not going to think about other people, think about yourself may be. You are not paying attention, using a phone while driving, it means you are not paying attention. So you could hurt, kill yourself. If you are only thinking about yourself, think about that. Mobile phones, we know we know -- we all need them, I need my GPS, cannot have without it, because I am always getting lost, when I have a seizure, do one of my wandering off, need to call someone to say can you come get me, I do not know where I am, it is midnight, stopped like that.

This is certainly the case with McCarthy, whose work plumbs the deepest existential abysses. Nevertheless, I harbored certain anxious expectations of him, unsure if he was a writer I’d ever actually want to meet. So like many others, I was more than a little puzzled by McCarthy’s decision to give his first and only TV interview in 2007 on Oprah Winfrey’s wildly popular platform. But among the many things we learned from their pleasant conversation is that McCarthy doesnt care much for literary society. He doesnt like writers so much as he loves writing and thinking, of all kinds. He spends most of his time with scientists, keeping—as we noted in a post last week —an office at a think tank called the Santa Fe Institute and doing most of his writing there on a noisy old typewriter. While developing relationships with physicists, McCarthy took an interest in their writing, and volunteered to copy-edit several scientific books .

Good gory fun. This Netflix exclusive landed just before Halloween but while it offers chills, don't come here expecting conventional scares. I Am The Pretty thing is much more brooding than to offer cheap thrills - instead it's a ghost story hidden within a ghost story, focusing on carer Ruth Wilson who slowly realises the house she is working in may be haunted. For the first hour of From Dusk Till Dawn, you'd be forgiven in thinking that there's no horror to be seen at all, other than the fact no one clearly wants to go on holiday in a camper van. But when the film finally lands in the Titty Twister, all hell breaks loose. Given this is a Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez joint venture, there's plenty of black comedy to go with the hordes of vampires that eventually turn up and wreak havoc in the movie. Dumb fun. Daniel Radcliffe has done well to rid himself of his Harry Potter persona and it's all thanks to choosing roles in movies such as Women In Black.

Famed talk show host Oprah Winfrey in a recent interview hinted that she would consider running for president in 2020. During an episode of Bloomberg's "The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations" that aired on Wednesday, Winfrey and Rubenstein took a jab at President Donald Trump by saying that you don't need experience to be president anymore, so she could run, according to the New York Post . "I actually never thought that was — I never considered the question, even a possibility, I just thought Oh, oh,'" Winfrey said. "Right, because it’s clear that you dont need government experience to be elected president of the United States, right?" Rubenstein said. "That’s what I thought," Winfrey said. "I thought, Oh gee, I dont have the experience, I dont know enough. Now I’m thinking, Oh, oh.'" The reaction from the crowd and Winfrey's facial expressions implied that because Trump became president without political experience, Winfrey could now take the opportunity to run for office.

Tuesday in an interview with Bloombergs David Rubenstein, talk show host Oprah Winfrey said she was rethinking the possibility of running to be president of the United States after President Donald Trump‘s victory. Partial transcript as follows: RUBENSTEIN: Have you ever thought that given the popularity you have—we havent broken the glass ceiling yet for women—that you could actually run for president and actually be elected? WINFREY: I actually never thought– never considered the question, even the possibility. I just thought, oh, oh. RUBENSTEIN: Because it’s clear you dont need government experience to be elected president of the United States. WINFREY: That’s what I thought. I thought, ‘Oh gee, I dont have the experience, I dont know enough.’ Now I’m thinking oh, oh. Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

A pair of rich, illuminating studies epitomise a new wave of thinking about the Freud wars and the history of analysis If Freud, as Auden wrote in his 1939 elegy , is “a whole climate of opinion / under whom we conduct our different lives”, then it would be fair to say that the local weather patterns around him shift from temptestuous to clement with uncanny regularity. Geography inevitably plays into the picture. There are actually only two (relative) constants in the diffusion of Freud’s invention, psychoanalysis , from 1906 on. One is the acceptance of the fact that each of us has an unconscious life: parts of ourselves that are hidden from our own view inform dreams, and shape unwitting remarks and behaviour. The second is the talk and listening technology of two people – the free-associating patient and the analyst engaged in an intimate therapeutic conversation.

Most people arent in the buying mindset when they log in to their accounts. Most people are simply checking in to see what’s going on with their social circles and what their friends and family are up to. Their mindset isnt usually, I’m desperately looking to make a purchase . They may be thinking that when they log in to Amazon—but not Facebook. Or as Aaron Zakowski eloquently puts it, Theyre buying intent is low. This graph shows how people spend their time on Facebook: And guess what? None of these activities involve buying. I think it’s really important to keep this in mind when approaching your video ad content. The last thing you want to do is clobber users over the head with ads that have the subtlety of a slap in the face. What you want to do is to promote your product/service/brand without making it seem like an advertisement. You need to be cool about it.

.. We are bleeding the best academics from this country at the present time who are leaving one by one or thinking about it because they do not see themselves as having a future in this country.

Alphr 35 min 26 sec ago Artificial intelligence. The words evoke images of sterile science-fiction environments, sleek robots and future-gazing articles from the past 20 years promising that, this time, AI is really taking over. The change has been more subtle than that – not a sudden revolution where we’re servile to robots, but an undeniable shift in how AI is increasingly embedded in our technology, altering our lives as a result. This month, alongside our other regular coverage, we’ll be paying special attention to AI with a number of interviews, features and other stories about this most exciting of technological advancements. Below, three of our writers give their thoughts on why it’s so damned important. Ian Betteridge: Humans are right to be worried Way back in the 1990s, I spent a great deal of time thinking about AI. Somehow, I had wangled a grant to write about it – and boy, did I write a lot of words.

You have to stop thinking, and start observing the behavior of Van Jones' audience. When People Who Matter have been killed, it becomes important to kill more of the Enemy even or perhaps necessarily through means that also kill many more of the People Who Matter. The flag's appetite has awakened. This is not the only way in which the U.S. media is treating this Death That Matters. Some commentators are even suggesting that it was a life lost in vain. Not in mass murder, but in vain. We should be aware, however, that the insanity Van Jones is tapping into is a powerful current with a long record of horror and destruction behind it.
