Those criteria are determined by individual states, she noted. Imagine going to the DMV to renew your license, Bedoya wrote in a recent op-ed in the Washington Post . What if youand most other teens in the United Stateswere then asked to submit your fingerprints for criminal investigations by the FBI or state police? In scope, he argues, the face-matching system resembles the National Security Agencys call-records program, which logged the metadata of all Americans phone calls. This has never happened beforenot with DNA or fingerprints, which are kept in smaller national networks made up mostly of known or suspected criminals. Yet law-enforcement face-recognition systems have received a fraction of the NSAs oversight.

Hillary Clinton's infamous campaign logo was created by a three-person team of designers who were invited to work on the "secret" design project four months before the official campaign launch in April 2015, according to a recently published essay written by the lead designers. Michael Bierut's essay, " I'm With Her: What I learned designing a logo for Hillary Clinton ," was published in the Design Observer. It chronicles the timeline of his involvement with Clinton's campaign—from the excitement of learning that his logo was chosen, to the heartbreak of Clinton's electoral defeat, and further to his decision to wear the logo at the January Women's March" in Washington, D.C. It all began in January 2015, when Bierut was "invited to volunteer" his services for what he saw as Clinton's "historic moment." "I was invited to volunteer my services on a secret project: the design of a logo for the possible presidential bid of the former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton," Bierut wrote.

The answer lies in another part of Article II—the part that received some important attention in Bush v. Gore , the Supreme Court decision that Democrats love to hate. Famously, the 2000 case between Republican nominee George W. Bush and Democratic nominee Al Gore effectively handed the election to Bush when it ended the Florida recount. Article II provides that the “state legislature” “may direct” “the manner” for choosing presidential electors. In Bush v. Gore , the Court stated that this Article II power given to state legislatures was “plenary,” meaning that the states have a broad power when it comes to presidential elections. Indeed, the Court wrote that even though state legislators have given each state’s voters the right to vote for presidential electors, at any time a state legislature can “take back the power” to appoint electors. In other words, if the California or Texas state legislature wanted to directly choose the state’s presidential electors in 2020, the state could do so.

It also says the island state's economy would be hit by a decline in tourism. The court papers cite reports that travel to the United States took a nosedive after Trump's actions. The state was joined by a new plaintiff named Ismail Elshikh, an American citizen from Egypt who is an imam at the Muslim Association of Hawaii and whose mother-in-law lives in Syria, according to the lawsuit. Hawaii and other opponents of the ban claim that the motivation behind it is based on religion and Trump's election campaign promise of a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. The court will not crawl into a corner, pull the shutters closed, and pretend it has not seen what it has, Watson wrote on Wednesday. Watson wrote that his decision to grant the preliminary injunction was based on the likelihood that the state would succeed in proving that the travel ban violated the U.

On February 28, Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) chairman UK Sinha's last day in office, the markets regulator wrote to the National Stock Exchange (NSE) asking it to expand an ongoing investigation into futures and options to the cash and currency segments. Sinha's parting shot has effectively placed India's biggest stock exchange, which is preparing for a mega public offer of shares, under an open-ended investigation with incalculable consequences. NSE has hired EY for a forensic audit. A top exchange official fears one impact could be on the valuation of its shares as revenue from the collocation centre (where clients pay to locate their servers next to the exchange's to be faster by fractions of seconds) or about a third of the exchange's total income has to be kept in a separate account until the probe is over. Sebi expanded a probe that began after a whistleblower using a pseudonym Ken Fong wrote to it in January 2015 alleging that NSE gave certain clients preferential access to its servers helping them nose ahead of competitors.

Where the 'historical context and the specific sequence of events leading up to' the adoption of the challenged Executive Order are as full of religious animus, invective, and obvious pretext as is the record here, it is no wonder that the Government urges the Court to altogether ignore that history and context, Watson wrote. The Court, however, declines to do so. ... The Court will not crawl into a corner, pull the shutters closed, and pretend it has not seen what it has. After the judge blocked Trump's revised order two weeks ago, the president told a crowd in Nashville that the new directive amounted to “a watered-down version of the first one.” Watson cited that statement in his ruling Wednesday. The judge said he was sensitive to concerns that Trump's public remarks from the presidential campaign and since taking office should not forever preclude him from taking necessary security steps, but that the Justice Department had failed to show a bona fide difference in the motivation behind the second executive order.

FUNCHAL: When the island of Madeira on Wednesday renamed its airport in honour of its hometown hero Cristiano Ronaldo, all eyes were expected to be on the four-time world player of the year who is adored not only for his soccer skills but also his model looks. But grabbing attention instead was a bronze bust of the player with a toothy grin and bulging eyes that instantly created a laugh on social media because of its debatable likeness. "I defy you not to feel better after viewing this picture of Cristiano Ronaldo alongside his portrait bust," wrote one Twitter user, Tom Sutcliffe (@tds153). "That hideous Ronaldo statue is going to be a meme in 5,4,3...," posted @Agave310. Another Twitter user deemed the statue "the most gloriously awful bust" of Ronaldo. The 32-year-old Real Madrid player's girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, and his mother, Maria, both attended the renaming ceremony of Portugal's Aeroporto da Madeira, now known as Cristiano Ronaldo Airport.
