Two months after the inauguration of President Trump, indications are mounting that the United States military is deepening its involvement in a string of complex wars in the Middle East that lack clear endgames.” TAX REFORM UPDATE: From POLITICO’s Darren Samuelsohn: “Republican and Democratic veterans of Washington’s messy policymaking process have a vehement response to the idea that the White House, fresh from its failed attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, will take the lead on drafting legislation to reform the nation’s tax system: good luck with that. Traditionally, the White House has stumbled when trying to craft major new legislation. Writing laws is, after all, what Congress gets paid to do — and lawmakers dont like being big-footed by staffers at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., even when they come from the same party.”

The Apollo program was a triumph of image control, especially when it came to the photographs. Thousands of shots were taken during the 11 Apollo flights, but only the best were released. Thats a shame, because its the outtakesastronauts posing awkwardly, the suns blinding flaresthat capture the missions as the half-improvised camping trips they were. Now a group of European designers have assembled 225 of the least-seen images in the book Apollo VIIXVII. You may have seen the views captured through the spacecraft windows, but youve never seen how dirty those windows got. Youve heard about the scientific instruments left behind, but youve never seen the makeshift contraptions they really were. The Apollo missions were flown by fallible humans just trying to put in a week or two of work and come home alive.

SUVA, Fiji: Sedition charges brought against executives at Fiji's oldest newspaper are "absolutely outrageous", Amnesty International said Thursday, while accusing the government of trying to intimidate the media. Three staff members at the Fiji Timesoccasionally a feisty critic of the regime — are facing up to seven years in jail for publishing a letter to the editor last year containing inflammatory comments about Muslims. "To charge people with sedition over something that's printed by an outside contributor in a newspaper is extremely heavy handed," Amnesty's New Zealand chief Grant Bayldon told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. "Fiji has a really sad history of suppressing freedom of expression and we really have to wonder if the motivation here is to intimidate one of the few media outlets that is still independent in Fiji." The letter in question was printed in a low-circulation Fijian-language supplement of the Times, which remains the Pacific nation's oldest newspaper established in 1869.

A group of motorcyclists riding on the dusty roads near Banda Aceh, north of Sumatra Island, came across a ‘humanoid being’ of very short height who has been identified by some as a possible member of a mythical tribe of Pygmies which were not seen from since the 17th century. In the video footage of the ‘close encounter’, one of the bikers falls as he tries to evade the mysterious being as it crosses its path, coming out of the forest. Shortly after, his colleagues chase after what appears to be a small semi-naked humanoid armed with a wooden pole, who manages to swiftly escapes into the high grasslands along the side of the road. Trying not to lose the mystery humanoid , the bikers step off of their bikes and enter the grasslands on foot, finding only the wooden object the supposed pygmy carried. According to reports from Mail Online, members of the “mythicalMante tribe are said to be much shorter than an average man, not more than five feet tall.

So here we go! The beginning of strawberry spam. It’s a zingy little strawberry treat for our thirsty Thursday. Wahoo. I’ve been prepping some great early spring (that scream ‘come to me summer!’) cocktails along with some fun easter brunch cocktails that I can’t wait to share with you guys. It's the best day of the week! Strawberries have been my favorite fruit for as long as I can remember. Really, all fruits are my cup of tea. I’ve said it a million times but it’s like all my produce love got used up on fruits and there just wasnt enough left for any vegetables. Strawberries have always been TOPS though. My go-to. ALSO. I’m still in this major ginger mood . Really, it’s because I’m desperately trying to clean out our fridge and freezer before our kitchen remodel begins on Monday and in doing so? I found FIVE knobs of ginger. Why is my life such a mess? These right here are bourbon soaked sugary strawberries.

FRENCH President Francois Hollande was here recently to persuade the government to buy the Dassault Aviation SA's Rafale fighter jets. The Rafale is seen as a frontrunner as Malaysia looks to buy up to 18 jets in a deal potentially worth more than RM9 billion. The French have even started advertising their Rafale fighter jets in newspapers. British Aerospace is also competing for a slice of Malaysia's defence pie, trying to flog their Typhoons in a RM10 billion deal they hope to clinch with a "Buy 1-Get 1 free" offer. The French are desperate to sell their arms because 60% of their exports are made up of arms. They obviously have not heeded the wise words of their literateur Albert Camus who said, "Peace is the only battle worth waging". The key question is whether Malaysia actually needs any of these fighter jets, considering their cost is spiralling way out of control and such jets are quickly obsolete? Malaysian taxpayers need to be wary of this record breaking arms deal.
