Palestinians now seek full legal equality of treatment under secular law in Israel. So lets acknowledge the useful truth that Trump has blundered onto. Lets abandon the naive and cynical rhetoric about the two-state solution that will never come about ― in any just and acceptable form. Half of Israel never believed in it in the first place. It has served only as a facade for building an apartheid Jewish state ― a term used frequently by some liberal Israeli commentators I have encountered. [Ardent Zionists] want a 'Jewish state' and demand that the world accept that term. Yet, in today’s world isnt the term 'Jewish state' strikingly discordant? Netanyahu and the right-wing Zionists clearly want all of Palestine. But theyre not ready yet to admit it. They want all the land, but without any of its people.

Diesels represented a 45.1% share in January 2017, a 4.3% drop on last year as Brits are driven to petrol. It’s worth noting, though, that the proportion of diesel sales versus petrol at the nation's pumps is around 60% in favour of the former, due to the fuel’s use in HGVs and among drivers with longer average journeys. NOx-reducing technology In 1996, industry figures were still very positive about diesel, despite facing strict new emissions rules. “In order to reduce PMs, we need at the very least a form of after-treatment which goes beyond just catalysis and into a trapping mechanism. Engines modifications alone will not be sufficient,” Walshe said. Autocar continued: “Favourite at present is the particulate trap, which dramatically lowers the mass and number of particulates, especially the small ones.” This technology, now employed across Europe in the form of the diesel particulate filter (DPF), was first used on a car, albeit briefly, on the 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300D sold in California, which had a ‘trap oxidiser’.

-- Jamal Udeen Al-Harith. It is complicated and rather dumbed down in the reporting tomorrow. Lots of the criticism is did some of the money he got in compensation for his treatment at Guantanamo Bay go to fund the organisation that calls itself Islamic State? I think that is a very moot point really because, OK, it might be of interest but the real question is this is someone who identified.

First, when they told me, I was scared, because I'd been in a cage for so long, I didn't want to leave, strange as it might seem. You didn't want to leave? Yeah, my first reaction was, "I don't want to go". Tonight, his family insisted he'd been radicalised by what they called the mental cruelty and inhuman treatment, and his compensation was far less than £1 million. It's been hard for us, you know? He's gone now and I just hope that between him and his maker, he's, you know, done whatever he wanted to do.

Al-Monitor- As the Trump administration readies a new executive order limiting travel to the United States for citizens of seven mostly Muslim nations, Americans who value athletic contact with Iran say the restrictions should not apply to sports exchanges. “The White House made it clear to the Olympic movement that there were going to be exceptions made for athletes participating” in international competitions, Rich Bender, the executive director of USA Wrestling, told Al-Monitor in an interview. Bender spoke just after returning from the 2017 freestyle Wrestling World Cup in Kermanshah, Iran. The American team came in second to Iran , but Bender said the event was “the best I have experienced” in his 29 years with USA Wrestling. “We were given fantastic treatment,” Bender said, noting the warmth of their welcome and the enthusiasm and knowledge of Iranian fans.

That means not only investigating Fowlers claims, but looking more broadly to see whether Uber has systemic issues related to the treatment of women. Holder was also hired by the state of California last month to represent the state government in any legal fights with the Trump administration. But Holders investigation of Uber is hardly independent. Uber is paying Covington & Burling partner to conduct the inquiry. One lawyer who works on these kinds of investigations told The Huffington Post that billings for Covingtons work could be in the millions of dollars. An Uber spokesperson told HuffPost that Holder will work hand in hand with Uber board member Arianna Huffington, as well as with someone from Ubers legal team. (Huffington is no longer affiliated with HuffPost.) But in the end, this is a private inquiry and what Uber decides to do about Holders findings is entirely up to Uber.

Ibogaine, an isolated active alkaloid, comes from the root bark of a shrub from central West Africa called Iboga. It has been used for thousands of years in ceremonies for spiritual development and in many tribes and cultures as a right of passage into adulthood. Iboga may be the most powerful psychedelic known to man. In recent years it has been found to have amazing success with treating various addictions, specifically addiction to opiates. Its ability to mitigate intense opiate withdrawals was discovered in the late 1960s. Since this discovery, studies undertaken by many research and academic facilities have proved that one of the 14 isolate alkaloids of IbogaIbogaine — is an extremely effective treatment for addiction to most substances, even the most addictive, like heroin, methadone, cocaine, methamphetamine, alcohol, and even nicotine.

Ars Live #10, filmed by Chris Schodt and produced by Jennifer Hahn. (video link) Under President Trump in the United States, we're seeing a dramatic shift in border regulation and the treatment of immigrants. What exactly are your rights at the border, and should you really hand over your social media passwords to a customs agent? UC Hastings law professor Ahmed Ghappour , an expert in national security and cybersecurity, recently talked to Cyrus Farivar and I about the answers in all their complexity. Outside of legal circles, most people don't realize that your Fourth Amendment right to not be subjected to "unreasonable search" is suspended at the borders. Ghappour explained this gives border agents a lot of leeway in terms of how much they search and detain people crossing into the US. He talked to Ars about recent cases where people have been asked to hand over the passwords to their phones and computers, as well as other personal items.
