KinScreen is a great example of the power Android offers, as the app adds new functionality to your phone, allowing you to turn your screen on just by waving your hand over the proximity sensor, picking your phone up, or holding it at a certain angle. KinScreen also includes toggles to keep your screen on under certain circumstances, such as when on a call, although youll need to make sure your face doesnt press a million buttons at the same time. It's not the only app to offer these tools, but it works well and while there is an IAP to unlock certain options, much of it (including the wave-to-wake feature) is free. Got an expensive app habit? Then it's time you discovered Google Opinion Rewards , an app which gives you Google Play credit for filling out quick surveys. Most of the questions are multiple choice and there are rarely more than a few questions in each survey, so the app won't waste your time.

What do you think his wake-up call will be? It's hard to say. If you look at the presidencies of George W Bush and Barack Obama, they were defined by events which were not part of their campaign, 9/11 and the financial crisis. I think Donald Trump will be overwhelmed by events and I don't think he is equipped to deal with them.

I think the policies are misguided and I think that a lot of the things Donald Trump talks about in policy solution terms are missing the point. He rails against China and Mexico for taking jobs while saying nothing about the looming job killer, automation. He has a very much populist appeal, but the reality TV sound bites that carried him to the White House do not help with governing an extremely complex issue, and I think he will have a wake-up call in how difficult those problems are come this weekend.

The inaugural address is traditions gift to a new President, a chance to gather the country together before the hard business of governing begins. Donald Trumps predecessors have seized these historic moments to issue calls for unity. Barack Obama, who took office in the midst of deepening economic crisis, used his first inaugural to steel the nation for the hardship ahead. George W. Bush, who became President in 2001 in the wake of a contested election, urged a a new commitment to live out our nations promise through civility, courage, compassion, and character. Nobody knows how Trump, who on Friday at noon becomes the 45th U.S. President, intends to make use of his moment in history. But there is little to suggest that he will heed the road map sketched by past Presidents. Trump has spent the weeks since Election Day practicing the same brand of us-against-them politics that won him the job.

Villagers can use this money to support themselves during this time of crisis,” said Kritsada Muadnoi, a gold buyer and adviser to the local government. “We are lucky here that nature has compensated us for the disaster.” Pineapple farmer Samruay Kamlin, 59, said just the prospect of finding gold thrilled her. So far, she has only uncovered a few flakes, but she obsesses over the hunt day and night. “It is like a magic drug for me,” she said. “I wake up at 3 a.m. thinking that I have to go look over here or there for gold.” Some, inevitably, are disappointed. Local villager Yuang Padthong, 67, said that she earned around 2,000 baht ($57) a month cultivating coconuts, but since her crop and the local market had been destroyed, she was trying her hand in gold panning. She left empty-handed. “There were more people here a few days ago and they were able to find a lot.

Thats a common enough occurrence since people rarely bother to cancel old registrations when they move from one state to another. Sounds benign, right? Not so. As Greg Palast detailed in Rolling Stone last August, this purge of voter rolls was methodologically inept and had the effect of disproportionately disenfranchising minority voters. The crosschecking frequently matched only first and last names, ignoring middle names and suffixes like junior or senior. As a result, common surnames Jones, Washington, Garcia, and the like generated huge numbers of matches. The intent of the program was to prevent double voting, a form of voter fraud that the right has frequently decried as widespread, but for which no one has found substantial evidence. (As the New York Times reported in the wake of election 2016, no significant evidence of voter fraud of any sort was found.

Secondly, abandoned by their regional and extra-regional supporters in the wake of the fall of eastern Aleppo, the last major rebel stronghold, the major rebel groups are now helpless and hapless, while the Assad government is set to negotiate from a position of strength and possibly dictate the terms of any forthcoming agreement. Still, hardly there is any alternative for the rebels to negotiating peace to facilitate their social and political rehabilitations in Syria. The long slogan of ‘Assad Must Go’ has now become an emphatically empty slogan, despite a long delegitimizing campaign by rebels of various stripes and their powerful backers. The road to Astana What leads to Astana is a host of factors set in motion long before the collapse of the rebels in eastern Aleppo. One such important factor was the abortive mid-July 2015 coup to topple President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, resulting in a big shift in Turkey’s foreign policy – from a traditionally pro-U.
