That's why I called ICE. Rinaldi, of Irving in suburban Dallas, and Blanco then began shouting at each other. A scuffle nearly ensued before other lawmakers separated the two. Later, a group of Democratic lawmakers held a press conference to accuse Rinaldi of threatening to put a bullet in the head of someone on the House floor during a second near scuffle. They said the comment was made in the direction of Democratic Rep. Poncho Nevarez, from the border town of Eagle Pass. In a subsequent Facebook statement, Rinaldi admitted saying he'd called federal authorities and threatened to shoot Nevarez but said his life was in danger, not the other way around. Nevarez threatened my life on the House floor after I called ICE on several illegal immigrants who held signs in the gallery which said I am illegal and here to stay,' Rinaldi wrote.

Some had called for Trump to respond to the attack earlier, including former CBS broadcaster Dan Rather and U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, a Democrat from Oregon. You must condemn this violent act and encourage Americans to stand together against hatred, Blumenauer wrote in a letter to the president. The mother of one of the targets of the rant said she is overwhelmed with gratitude and sadness for the strangers who were stabbed to death when they came to the defense of her daughter, 16-year-old Destinee Mangum. Dyjuana Hudson posted a photo on her Facebook page Saturday of Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, saying: Thank you thank you thank you. ... You will always be our hero. ... I'm soooooo sorry this happened. On Sunday, Hudson posted a video with her daughter saying they were traumatized by the event. Mangum told news station KPTV that she and her 17-year-old friend were riding the train when Christian started yelling at them.

Hopefully, its something hell learn from, grow from, take responsibility for and use it to make some changes. Woods underwent his fourth back surgery in April, which aimed to alleviate ongoing pain and allow him to return to competitive golf. Back issues have cost him most of the last four years of his career, and he is expected to miss the remainder of the 2017 PGA season. Woods wrote last week on his official website that he hasn't "felt this good in years." "As for returning to competitive golf, the long-term prognosis is positive," Woods wrote. "My surgeon and physiotherapist say the operation was successful. Its just a matter of not screwing up and letting it fuse. Im walking and doing my exercises, and taking my kids to and from school. All I can do is take it day by day. Theres no hurry. "But, I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again."

It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war.” This statement went further than merely boasting at the instigation of war and the ultimate collapse of the Soviet Union. In his memoir, entitled “From the Shadows,” Robert Gatesformer CIA director under Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and secretary of defense under both George W. Bush and Barack Obamadirectly confirmed this covert operation began six months prior to the Soviet invasion with the actual intention of luring the Soviets into a Vietnam-style quagmire. Brzezinski knew exactly what he was doing. The Soviets were then bogged down in Afghanistan for approximately ten years, fighting an endless supply of American-supplied weapons and trained fighters.

Iran is fighting those groups, not fueling them. Almost every terrorist attack in the West has had some connection to Saudi Arabia. Virtually none has been linked to Iran. Trump has adopted the Saudi line on terrorism, which deflects any blame from the kingdom and redirects it toward Iran. The Saudis showered Trump’s inexperienced negotiators with attention, arms deals and donations to a World Bank fund that Ivanka Trump is championing. (Candidate Trump wrote in a Facebook post in 2016, “Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!”) In short, the Saudis played Trump. (Jamie Tarabay makes the same point.) The United States has now signed up for Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy — a relentless series of battles against Shiites and their allies throughout the Middle East.

Competitive imbalance is an unavoidable reality in the star-driven NBA." " Hibernating bears have experienced more suspense," the Chicago Tribune 's Jerry Brewer quipped. "Thank God for the NHL playoffs," TNT's Charles Barkley said after Golden State's 121-95 Game 4 elimination victory over the Utah Jazz in the second round (via Sportsnet's Michael Grange ). "That's what I'd be watching in the back instead of these blowouts." "Dynasties aren't new and aren't badthe [Los Angeles] Lakers and the Celtics dominating the 1980s was fine, and the [Chicago] Bulls taking over the '90s is still historic, and who cares if the Lakers and the [San Antonio] Spurs won most of the titles in the 2000s," SB Nation's Tim Cato wrote. "We had a good time, didn't we? "But on the other hand, while dominance can be enjoyable to watch, it would be nicer if the Warriors and Cavaliers' trips to their third straight Finals against each other showed even a morsel of entertainment or uncertainty, not this sure thing we've seen coming since last August.

"The top five percent (of cities per population) could see increases in temperatures of about 8 C and larger," study co-author Francisco Estrada of the Institute for Environmental Studies in the Netherlands told AFP. Estrada and a team used different projections of average planetary warming, combined with the UHI effect and potential harms, to estimate the future costs of warming on cities. The median city, right in the middle of the range, stands to lose between 1.4 and 1.7 percent of GDP per year by 2050 and between 2.3 and 5.6 percent by 2100, they concluded. "For the worst-off city, losses could reach up to 10.9 percent of GDP by 2100," wrote the team. UHI "significantly" increases city temperatures and economic losses from global warming, they added. This meant that local actions to reduce UHI -- such as planting more trees or cooling roofs and pavements, can make a big difference in limiting warming and minimising costs.

Hey, It has been quite a while since I last wrote something here and everything moved so far through these years so I guess the easiest is to ask you about what parts should I buy for my new build than try to catch up with all this new computer tech. So I need to build a new computer for my mum. It will be used mostly for accountant stuff. The budget for this is about 300-450 pounds without the monitor and I think I will find an old case lying somewhere around so no need that also (but you can try to convince me that I need a new one). Oh and I think the computer should have a small SSD for OS and a bigger one maybe 500gb-1tb ordinary one for data but also you can ignore that also. Thanks in advance. Cheers, Justas

The gods were associated with stars (including objects in the sky that we now classify as planets), and the ancient Egyptians (to give but one example) hoped to be united with the Sun and stars upon death. Plato in Timaeus (circa 360 bce) wrote, “And when he [the Artificer]had compounded the whole, he portioned off souls equal in number to the stars and distributed a soul to each star…” 17 Building on such ideas, my wife Katie has speculated that perhaps when human beings die their hydrogen is released (hydrogen can potentially carry information, and many would argue that information is an essential element of consciousness) and at least some of the hydrogen escapes to space where it collects as clouds, collapses under gravitational attraction, is compressed, and ultimately gives rise to starsstars which may retain some of the information, some of the consciousness aspects, of the former beings who gave up their hydrogen.

WASHINGTON: Golf superstar Tiger Woods was arrested Monday in Florida on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to records from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. The 14-time major champion was booked into the Palm Beach County jail on Monday at 7.18am (1118 GMT, 7.18pm Malaysia) after he was arrested by police in Jupiter, Florida. He was released on his own recognizance at 10.50am. Woods, 41, hasn't played competitive golf since pulling out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February after one round because of back pain. He had spinal fusion surgery on April 20 — his fourth surgery in three years to treat his troublesome back which has limited him to three tournament starts worldwide in the past two years. Woods wrote on his website last week that since his latest procedure he was feeling better than he had in years and remained committed to returning to competitive golf.

This occurred at the height of the wave of violence that began two months earlier in the West Bank and Israel. It was the second time she had been arrested, after serving a prison term in 2008 over charges of contacts with organizations hostile to Israel. This time, she says, she was handed a screenshot of a Facebook post featuring a picture of her husband, with the text, “May God unite us in heaven.” Zariqat says the word shahda (cognate to shahid, Arabic for “martyr”) in her Facebook post seemed to worry her investigator. “I told him it’s a word we use regularly. The fact that I wrote it on Facebook doesnt mean I’ll do anything even when someone dies in a car accident we call him shahid.” Following the interrogation Zariqat was issued with a four-month administrative detention order – detention without trial that is used as preemptive detention by Israel, mostly against Palestinians in the West Bank.

He said if you went into the aftermarket, bought after the close and sold before the opening every day, you would make risk-free profits. He said statistically that’s impossible unless there’s manipulation occurring. I also spoke to Professor Rosa Abrantes-Metz at the New York University Stern School of Business. She is the leading expert on globe price manipulation. She actually testifies in gold manipulation cases that are going on. She wrote a report reaching the same conclusions. It’s not just an opinion, it’s not just a deep, dark conspiracy theory. Here’s a PhD statistician and a prominent market expert lawyer, expert witness in litigation qualified by the courts, who independently reached the same conclusion. Now, where is the manipulation coming from? There are a number of suspects but you need look no further than China. China wants to do what the U.
