Hear, hear! My Lords... My words, but to act as well. Hear, hear! My Lords... My Lords, we do need to try and organise this debate so that we hear all sides of the argument and I hope noble Lords will understand if I then suggest a time limit. I think I should first of all in a manner that is not being followed by anybody else in this House today, declare my interest in this matter.

Vaughn Highfield 11 min 14 sec ago Nintendo Switch Price when reviewed 179.99 To understand the Nintendo Switch you first have to understand Nintendo. It’s the culmination of over thirty years of Nintendo’s gaming hardware know-how. Ever since the Nintendo Entertainment System entered Japanese homes in 1983, the aim has been to entertain families, bring people together and show that video games can bring the world happiness. That idea has been Nintendo’s mantra in everything it’s ever produced. It’s all about creating a sense of joy and wonder; it’s about transporting you back to your youth – or if you’re still youthful – showing you that life isnt always about being serious. All those feelings have been distilled down into the Nintendo Switch. The moment you hold the it in your hands, turn it on and hear that chime for the first time – and every time – you can’t help but smile.

At the very least, however, the crater could reveal a slew of important climate data, which, according to lead researcher Julian Murton from the University of Sussex, could help us to understand how the climate of Siberia changed in the past, and how it will shift over the coming years. Such insight may help us to better prepare for when the permafrost melts again, which last occurred around 10,000 years ago, when the Earth transitioned out of its last Ice Age. The Batagaika site contains a remarkably thick sequence of permafrost deposits, which include two wood-rich layers interpreted as forest beds that indicate past climates about as warm or warmer than today's climate, Murton explains . The upper forest bed overlies an old land surface that was eroded, probably when permafrost thawed in a past episode of climate warming.

From international tourism to federal employment prospects, every new president alters the fabric of life in the nation's capital. But for local restaurateurs such as Ashok Bajaj, a new White House administration is just another president waiting to be fed. "It takes a little while for the administration to find a restaurant," Bajaj, the owner of several Washington establishments, told VOA's Russian Service. "For the first month or so they are trying to find out what is going on in the White House, and then they are trying to understand what's around, what are best places to eat, best places to drink. With every new administration, we go through that transitional period, too. We lose our old friends and get new ones." Located just a stone's throw from the West Wing, Bajaj's aptly namedOval Roomregularly hosted staffers from the Obama White House.

I am very alarmed by the desecration of Jewish cemeteries, with Jewish Community Centers being threatened around the country, and with the headquarters of the Anti-Defamation League receiving a bomb threat last week. When we see violent and verbal racist attacks against minorities – whether they are African-Americans, Jews, Muslims in this country, immigrants in this country, or the LGBT community, these attacks must be condemned at the highest levels of our government. It was rather extraordinary that in the White House’s Holocaust Remembrance Day statement, the murder of 6 million Jews was not mentioned by the Trump administration. I hope very much that Pres. Trump and his political advisor Mr. Bannon understand that the world is watching: it is imperative that their voices be loud and clear in condemning anti-Semitism, violent attacks against immigrants in this country, including the murder of two young men from India, and all forms of bigotry here and around the world.

Oh, and some nifty dancing too. Timur Bekmambetov may be a Hollywood director now, but where his American movies are visually appealing but pretty awful (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the remake to Ben-Hur), Night Watch, which he made in his native Russia, is fantastic. At the time of its release (2004), it was the most successful Russian movie for all time and for good reason. It's a brilliant, sometimes incoherent fantasy that melds Bekmambetov's great style with a story that involves modern day vampires that are split into two factions: the night watch and the day watch. Don't try and understand it, just feast on the surreal, stunning visuals. Splitting the last book in the series was a mistake as instead of having one fantastic movie, you instead have two good ones. Mockingjay - Part 2 is by far the darkest Hunger Games movie but it's well made and a fitting end to the franchise.

In the last ten years, an old scholarly paradigm that was used for the historical analysis of European settler movements in various parts of the worlds, and in different periods, resurfaced in the USA and Australia as part of the new wish to understand the modern histories of these countries. Leading historians from all around the world reshaped the paradigm of settler colonialism to include all the places where European immigrants colonised non-European lands, at first with the help of Colonial Empires, and then struggling against the Empire and the local indigenous population. All the countries in North, Central and South America are settler colonial countries. As are Australia, New Zealand, Algeria, Zimbabwe and South Africa. By this, we mean they either have a settler colonial history or still are engaged in struggle against the native indigenous population.

I think for someone like me who studies Disney and cinema, it actually is a good way to understand and to see a reflection of the society it is catering for. It is not leading, it is following.

Thank you very much. Does the noble Lord not understand... Thank you. The moral obligation that it is on this government? These people are not bargaining chips. If we say quite freely that they are free to stay, that does give the moral high ground to our government in its negotiations and I would argue that all noble Lords, including noble lord Howard should vote with their consciences country.

Plymouth Argyle's latest defeat has left fans rather frustrated with a continuing run of poor results - mainly because they have been against beatable sides. Notts County were in 21st position in the League Two table before they beat Argyle at Home Park so you can understand why supporters were upset not to see the Pilgrims record a routine win. But Tuesday's game was not a one-off event as it was the latest missed opportunity to punish a team that was threatened with relegation and...

How do tumours grow? And how do bacteria transform harmless substances into medical agents? When biophysicists want to understand what is happening in living cells, they have to introduce fluorescent probes or other foreign molecules. There are several ways to overcome the cell wall without causing the cell permanent harm. Physicists at Bielefeld University have developed a particularly gentle method for this: nanoinjection. In a new study to be found in Scientific Reports published by Nature, they show that with this method, nine out of ten cells survive being injected with foreign molecules.

So a signal coming from a satellite on the horizon will be affected more than from a satellite directly overhead. This type of interference is constantly changing and introduces an unavoidable margin of error in positioning up to 10 meters. RTK and Differential GPS Diagram via Penn State GEOG862 Now that we know how GPS works and its fundamental limitations, we can understand how to remove those limitations to obtain a higher level of positioning accuracy. This can be done with the introduction of a second fixed receiver. Fixed meaning it doesn't move and its location in known exactly. The mobile receiver (the one that needs positioning) must be relatively close to the fixed receiver, so the two receivers can compare signals from the same GPS satellite and then talk to each other about it. The fixed receiver looks at the GPS signal received, and then looks at the signal received from the mobile receiver.

About 80,000, in fact, and I can still remember most of them (three years is a long time to work on a single project). Then, AI was mostly theoretical. Now, it’s the most commonly used buzzword in tech. But is it really here? The answer, of course, depends on your definition of intelligence. We dont really have general-purpose artificially intelligent machines capable of passing the Turing test, for example. But what we do have is increasingly adaptable algorithms capable of learning from a set of inputs and making decisions based on experience, rather than pre-programming. This means we’ll have machines that effectively programme themselves – and in turn, this means that we’ll no longer be able to understand their programming. If that scares you, you’re probably right to be scared, for two reasons. First, it makes systems virtually impossible to debug.
