Is there any sign that they will give us what we want? They will not give us what we want, but that is the right approach. The right-wing Eurosceptic press are triumphant because we got the whole country to vote to leave the EU, but the whole thing in terms of punishment by the Europeans or as poking them in the eye, that is not the attitude that will be struck by Theresa May or Angela Merkel or anybody else.

Men who end up behind bars may soon be able to keep their mane after a High Court judge found a decision to shear lawmaker Long Hair Leung Kwok-hungs signature locks during his brief incarceration in 2014 to be unlawful. In a judgment handed down on Tuesday, Mr Justice Thomas Au Hing-cheung ruled in favour of the radical legislator, who challenged the lawfulness of the decision and relevant orders requiring him and all male prisoners but not female inmates ...

FREQUENTLY, I am surprised by the number of friends and relatives who, when they reach a certain age, find themselves drawn to a singular pastime. Some are a bit defensive about it. Others are triumphant. Their common passion is a slight looking thing – the ukulele.

SpaceX On Saturday SpaceX triumphantly returned to flight after an accident last September, launching 10 Iridium satellites into an orbit 625km above the Earth's surface. As a bonus, the company also demonstrated its increasing mastery of rocket landings by bringing the first stage booster back to a drone ship off the California coast. SpaceX has now successfully landed seven rockets back on Earth. This flight was essential for SpaceX because the Falcon 9 rocket lies at the core of every aspect of SpaceX's business. Mission success means that the company can now move forward with its lofty ambitions for the year 2017, which include a long list of tasks to ensure a bright future for the rocket company in Hawthorne, California. Here's a look at the company's to-do list: Read 17 remaining paragraphs | Comments

Sanders himself has been more focused on his Senate work than on party politics. And on Capitol Hill, no Clinton-Sanders proxy fights have yet broken out in a place full of Clinton allies and comparatively few Sanders backers. The senator’s confidants are careful not to look either bitter or triumphant — “We wouldnt frame anything as Bernie-Clinton,” said Larry Cohen, the board chairman of Our Revolution, the successor group to Sanderscampaign — but his supporters arent shy in invoking his name. And they’re already taking Sanders’ so-called political revolution to the states: while Maine Democratic Party Chairman Phil Bartlett — a Clinton super delegatemanaged to stave off a Sanders-inspired challenge, another Sanders backer, Tim Vandeveer, captured Hawaii’s party chairmanship. Fights are now brewing in more than roughly half a dozen other states as other Sanders supporters look to replace entrenched state party leaders.

Again, we ought to be winning that seat at the moment comfortably by ten, 15,000 vote majority, so these should be to huge triumphant by-election victories for Weber. Jeremy needs to deliver them. I am going to lose by-elections, I think every Labour MP needs to go but Jeremy himself needs to spend a significant amount of time in the North at those two by-elections out of Westminster and out of London.

"This experiment has failed," and "we have to step in before things get worse." The Senate passed the resolution Thursday. It received no Democratic support in either chamber, highlighting the intensely partisan fight that lies ahead. The resolution provides Republicans with a powerful tool, called reconciliation, which allows repeal legislation to proceed through the 100-member Senate with a simple majority, protected from a Democratic filibuster that requires a 60-vote threshold to overcome. Trump made repeal of the law a central plank of his insurgent campaign, and he sounded triumphant ahead of the vote. "The 'Unaffordable' Care Act will soon be history!" he tweeted early Friday. Days earlier he said the Republicans ought to repeal and replace Obamacare quickly and "simultaneously." During a Thursday town hall style event Ryan said he was on board, and that he envisioned action on a plan "within the first hundred days.

But though its ambitions are clear, it feels less like a fully-realized story than a patchwork of interesting ideas that are rarely developed to satisfaction. The film tracks Joe Coughlin (Affleck), a small-time Boston hood in the 1920s who eventually forms a massive illegal rum-running empire out of Florida, all the while making plans for revenge against the Boston crime lord who betrayed him and sent him to prison (Robert Glenister). Boasting opulent production design by Jess Gonchor and luxurious cinematography from Robert Richardson, not to mention a top-drawer supporting cast including Zoe Saldana, Chris Messina, Sienna Miller, Chris Cooper, and Elle Fanning, Live by Night tries to make a strong case for itself as a triumphant restoration of the crime epics of old. And while it certainly has enough of those trappings, it's also repeatedly hamstrung by its episodic nature, jerking from inciting incident to inciting incident without a clear through-line and leaving the whole thing undernourished.

Sheridan Smith made a triumphant return to the stage last night [Getty] But last night, the actress looked back to her bubbly self as she made a triumphant return to the stage. The 35 year old performed two songs from her West End show Funny Girl at the launch of Bunga Bunga club in Covent Garden last night. She wore a stunning gold dress with a glamorous slick of red lipstick. And as she sang, Sheridan Smith showed off a new tattoo tribute to her late dad. Sheridan Smith ...

Recall that after the revolution of Vatican Two, Popes abandoned their sedan chairs and the papal tiara, the triple crown that symbolized and embodied the claims of the institution to have authority over the church triumphant (in heaven), the church suffering (in purgatory) and the church militant (on earth), each represented by one of the three crowns in the tiara. Pope Pius XII (Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli) was the last person to wear it, though Pope Paul VI was crowned with it, he seldom wore it in public functions. But amid all the flannel- and cotton-mouthed pronouncements of the Second Vatican Council, one central doctrine was treated in the old fashioned language: the papacy, and its claims, itself, and those pronouncements of Vatican Two stressed all the vocabulary of plenitudo potestatis that one was accustomed to from the mediaeval popes like Boniface VIII and Innocent III.

Survival of the fittest, this still exists even today. If you’re weak, people pick on you, they take advantage. And if you dont respond to what they do, they will continually pick on you. You have to frighten them and attack first.” Those strong words come from Ralph Whims, a teacher who, one night back in 1973, agreed to chaperone a school dance in a church basement. It was a pretty ordinary affair, until a 20-member biker gang barged in, uninvited, and started harassing the kids. What to do? Retreat? Or step forward and restore order? That’s the story, apparently all true, told by the short animation, The Chaperone , created by Fraser Munden. (His own father once had Ralph Whims as an elementary school teacher in Montreal.) This empowering short film has been screened at 70 film festivals and won 25 awards. You can get more backstory on the film by reading an interview with the director here .

So, Cuban exiles piloted retired Air Force planes with markings painted over, but no one under fire is fooled for long. There was no denying, plausible or otherwise, the bloated corpses all over Playa Giron and prisoners dragged before the cameras, a triumphant Fidel commanding from atop a tank. 30 One of the piquant ironies of the Iran-Contra affair was the way secret agents exposed each other, accused each other as frauds and liars in a veritable shit-shower of leaks that percolated up from the bowels of the Deep State. Not that they didnt try: Success has a thousand fathers but failure is everywhere an orphan, Kennedy mused. He took the blame anyway but canned the invasion’s planners and executors for, among other blunders, confidently predicting a popular uprising that never occurred. Did they return to put Kennedy in his coffin? We may never know for sure but the incoming administration is almost certainly moving to rescind the law passed in the wake of Iran-Contra that would force the CIA to release in 2017 more than 17,000 pages of material related to the hit that are still considered too sensitive for the public to see 53 years after the assassination and counting.
