President Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway on Fox News Wednesday denied allegations that she was "sidelined" from press appearances, arguing that she shouldn't have to explain her decision to abstain from TV appearances while she's trying to balance her career and her role as a mother of four children. Conway said during an appearance on "Hannity" that she didn't go on television for a few days because she was looking at houses and schools with four children. "I don't think I have to explain myself," Conway said. "A lot of my colleagues aren't trying to figure out how to be a mother of four kids, I assure you," she added. Conway also pointed out that Trump is president and should be the one getting the spotlight. She also said that "he is his own best messenger, we don't need to be out there all the time." CNN reported that Conway was "sidelined" from media appearances after she said on television that former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had the president's "full confidence.

I am looking at building a new cabinet for my hardware as I would like to add a firewall and new switch to try and future proof a little. I have one old i7 920 running off a 600w PSU, and I am looking at digging out my even older Q6600 for the firewall. The i7 and mobo came out of an Alienware Area 51 ALX that also had either a 1.2Kw or 1.5Kw PSU.. Would it be feasible to run the two systems of the one PSU if I branched off the 24pin and 8pin. Then if so, if I were to mod the PSU to be on all the time it has power by joining PWR_ON wire to GND, will I be able to power down each PC independently?? Both machines would run headless so no power required for GPU, but will have about 10 HDDs and 1 DVD drive between them. Cheers Iain

KUALA LUMPUR: The Road Transport Department today issued a warning that firm action would be taken against Dego Ride service providers, including seizing their motorcycles. RTD Enforcement Division director Datuk V. Valluvan Veloo said they understood motorcycle taxi operators will be back in operation despite the warnings and summonses that were issued. "I issue a warning that this time we will not issue a summon but will seize their (operators) motorcycles. Now we have identified over 6,000 operators who have registered and I understand they want to resume operations. "Two weeks ago we only issued summons, but this time we will seize the motorcycles," he said at a press conference at the closing ceremony of the RTD First Aid Course Series 2/2017 here today. Last week, the Transport Ministry ordered the "Dego Ride" services to be stopped immediately for safety reasons and the operating licence for the service operator had not been issued for the time being.

IF THE gravest threat to democracy is indifference, have some faith in Donald Trump’s America. For the president is not just good at rallying throngs of his own supporters. He is also firing up his critics in a way that offers some echoes of the Tea Party movement that sprang up to oppose Barack Obama in 2009. Consider the long lines of constituents wrapped around a high school in Virginia Beach on February 20th, sacrificing their time on a public holiday to meet their Republican congressman, Scott Taylor. Undistracted by a mild, golden-hued evening worthy of early summer, almost 1,000 locals waited in line for seats. A minority were conservatives, wearing the Make America Great Again hats that signal Trump-allegiance or carrying signs demanding that Mr Taylor—a 37-year-old former Navy SEAL commando, elected to Congress for the first time last year—should vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare.

The May 2012 annular solar eclipse. Image credit and ©: Kevin Baird . Tis the season... eclipse season that is, as a spectacular ring of fire annular solar eclipse marks the end of the first of two eclipse cycles for 2017. And although the annular path for this eclipse passes through some sparsely populated parts of the southern hemisphere, we just might get some amazing live views, courtesy of modern technology and some intrepid observers willing to adventurously trek after the shadow of the Moon. Unlike many of the uncertainties in life, eclipses are sure to happen, a certainty ordained by orbital mechanics. Well, okay, the Vogons could always blow the Moon to smithereens this fine Thursday afternoon... but otherwise, we're in for a true celestial show. Eclipse circumstances: Prospects and prognostications. The eclipse begins far out in the South Pacific at sunrise, and the path of annularity makes first landfall along the southern coast of Chile at 13:31 Universal Time (UT).

Depression has a way of silencing its sufferers. Even in today's technology-connected society, people are hesitant to talk about their painful experiences and suffering for fear of being stigmatized. Though this has been the unfortunate norm for quite some time, new research from Drexel University is steadily uncovering the areas of social network sites where the sufferers are finding solace. In their latest finding Andrea Forte, PhD, an associate professor, and Nazanin Andalibi, a doctoral candidate in Drexel's College of Computing & Informatics who study how people interact on social media, have observed that one way people in pain are overcoming silence is by using Instagram—and recruiting pictures to help them explain the feelings and experiences that are often too painful or complicated to put into words.

Nottingham has been home to a number of famous musicians, including the bands London Grammar and Don Broco (which both formed at the University of Nottingham), and its favourite son since D.H. Lawrence, Jake Bugg. But in the 90s and early noughties, another name was the ruler of the underground. Now, the original line-up of the cult band Six. By Seven, appearing together on stage for the first time in almost seventeen years, returned last night to Hockley's Rough Trade to play a warm-up gig...
