Most of the remaining part of the building’s roof crashed to the factory floor in early May during a barrage of shelling by the enemy. The soldiers seem to sense their foesfrustration. “Recently, the militants started throwing three-man commando groups against us,” Khan goes on. “And we slay them immediately, right here, at the Skeleton. We dont understand what’s going on — either they’ve gone nuts or they just dont respect us anymore. Those weak infiltrating groups are all doomed to die here, with no exceptions.” As he speaks, a walkie-talkie on his shoulder buzzes with short encoded reports from soldiers manning the nearest positions. Overnight on May 17, the Skeleton Position was hit by tank fire, and then the Ukrainian defenders were hit by two big infantry assaults. Khan’s soldiers believe it was revenge for their earlier destruction of an enemy rocket-propelled grenade fire team.

Rental income Rubinstein says that for the uninitiated it is crucial to know that in the Kyiv property market things move fast, because the vast majority of deals are made with cash, without the need for mortgages. Local investors — who typically own several properties — know well the going prices and are quick to pounce on anything that looks like a good deal. “The way it works here is a little tricky, it can be difficult for people to understand,” he said. “We’re a cash-driven gray economy. There’s never a lack of cash or financing. If something is priced below the market, by say, 15 percent, it gets snatched up straight away.” Over the years, Rubinstein has seen that in Kyiv trying to make quick money by “flipping” a property through buying it, renovating it, then quickly selling it is the domain of domestic investors, who better understand the tastes of local buyers.

Greg Gianforte doesnt get the basics of America or public service, Sen. Ben Sasse said Thursday. “If you’re seeking a job as a public servant, if you’re going to serve in the Congress, one of the core obligations before you is to teach American civics. And if you’re teaching American civics, you celebrate a First Amendment, a free press, speech, assembly, religion,” Sasse said Thursday in a detailed and frank interview for POLITICO’s “Off Messagepodcast scheduled to be released on Tuesday about America, Peter Pan, the failings of Congress and of the Republican Party, and President Donald Trump. [ Subscribe to the podcast here.] Sasse, the junior senator from Nebraska and a staunch conservative, is a former college president who’s promoting his new book, “The Vanishing American Adult,” which amounts to a diagnosis of the rot within American culture and what to do about it.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) during her Thursday press conference repeatedly dodged questions over whether or not Imran Awan, an IT staffer for Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D., Fla.) who is under investigation by Capitol Hill Police, should continue to serve in an advisory role. A reporter asked Pelosi about Awan, who is under investigation for stealing equipment from members' offices and for possibly illegal actions on the House IT network. Awan remains on Wasserman-Schultz's staff in spite of the investigation. Pelosi initially did not seem to understand the question about Awan. "Well, the people who are under investigation are the Attorney General of the United States," she said. "I mean what are we talking about here?" "Should Imran Awan still be here?" the reporter asked. "I'm not familiar—you have a very specific charge there," Pelosi said.

The facility was built in the last few years, according to the IRGC. Iranian military leaders also are working on building Iran's first "ground-to-ground" ballistic missile. Iran's repeated test firing of ballistic missiles, as well as its multiple space launches—which are believed to be cover for an intercontinental ballistic missile program—have riled the Trump administration and leaders of both parties on Capitol Hill. A bipartisan delegation of nearly 50 senators announced on Thursday that it is moving forward with new legislation to increase economic sanctions on Iran as a result of its missile program, as well as the Islamic Republic's support for terrorism and illegal weapons trade. Sen. Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), a chief sponsor of the legislation, said that it is part of a larger effort to ensure that "Iran's leaders understand they do not enjoy blanket impunity as the United States continues to live up to its commitments under the" nuclear agreement.

Tim Louzonis, originally from the city of Worcester in the American state of Massachusetts, only co-founded his real estate agency in Kyiv three years ago. But his experience in Ukraine stretches much further back than that: he first arrived in the Black Sea port city of Odesa in 1993 as an exchange student, and has since then worked all over the country. Over the years he’s learned plenty about the do’s and dont’s when it comes to making property investments in Ukraine. He says for many outsiders from other countries who are used to transparency and the easy availability of market data, the first thing to understand is that things here arent quite so straightforward. “Ukraine is a place where you have to do all your homework,” he told the Kyiv Post in an interview. “It’s not a place for those who want to do it themselves. If you think you can do it all online, you’re in trouble.

Shelly Sterling, the wife of former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, wants the NBA to end the lifetime ban given to her husband after his racist comments were caught on tape, which led the league to force the sale of the Clippers organization. On Thursday, James Rainey of NBC News passed along comments from Shelly Sterling with the two-year anniversary of the sale set to arrive next week on May 29. "I couldn't understand the severity of the ban. It just seemed a little bit out of line," she said. "I have talked to [the NBA] several times and I don't know what they will do. Maybe they will and maybe they won't [lift the ban]. Maybe it takes a little bit more time." This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.

For every single agent and every single studio, it was a laughable concept." Hayek said Hollywood had disregarded and disrespected the female market. "They have not realised that women are a great economic power. These people don't understand we are a huge audience. We have been neglected for so long they don't know what we want to watch. "We don't even know, because we always think of who we will be watching the movie with - the husband, the family, the children," she told the talk, sponsored by Kering, her husband Francois-Henri Pinault's luxury goods empire. She blamed movie executives' "ignorance" for failing to properly play to the female demographic. "Today almost 80% of the decision-makers of what movie or television show to watch are female. Women work, we make money and we all want to go out and have fun much more than before, and they have not capitalised on that.

Sen.

"Independent of the nuclear portfolio, and as President Rouhani starts his second presidential term, our broader policy towards Iran must be one that holds Tehran accountable for their destabilizing efforts in the region, illegal and dangerous missile technology development, and nefarious activities as the world's leading sponsor of terrorism," Menendez said. "As the administration continues to review its Iran policy, Congress must set out clear markers that impose real consequences to Iran's illicit behavior that runs counter to our national security and that of our allies in the region.

The paper slides between the plate and the wire. Only when there's a hole in the paper between the wire and the plate do they make electrical contact. That brings the corresponding resistor into the circuit, and the 555 outputs the correct frequency for the desired musical note. In the diagram we're highlighting the electrical path if a hole is between D3's wire and copper plate. A Very Quick Intro To Reading Music Before we end this article, here's the promised minimal introduction to reading sheet music, just enough to understand this article. How to read music for piano A simple way to start is by looking at the keys on a piano. Each key represents a musical note, denoted by a letter from A to G. You can always find C because it's the white key to the left of any set of two black keys. There are only seven letters from A to G, but look closely at the keyboard and you'll see that the pattern of black and white keys repeats after every seven white keys.
