Did it have is an print on him? I think I'm looking for a word more than a thumb print. It was Bannon all in. This was what Steve Bannon has been doing during the campaign. He joined it from August on and this is the point of view he has been expressing to me, to anyone that's talk to him, and also to Trump again and again.

Intel is getting proficient at developing small computers. First, came its Compute Sticks and then its credit-card-shaped Compute Cards. But nothing's quite like the mysterious Euclid, which is a self-contained computer the size of a thumb designed to be the brains and eyes of a robot. More details have emerged about the computer, which was announced in August and has yet to be released. The Euclid is so small and light that's possible to hold like a pen. It has a built-in 3D RealSense camera, making it like a PC fused into a Microsoft Kinect. The design makes it possible to install the Euclid where the eyes of a human-like robot would be typically placed. The 3D RealSense camera will act as the eyes of a robot, capturing images in real-time and helping with movement. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Tens of thousands of civilians fled to U.N. camps for protection, and years later, the camp in Juba is still overflowing with those who do not feel safe enough to return home. Although Machar and Kiir signed a peace deal in August 2015 and briefly installed a unity government in April 2016, their troops opened fire on each other again three months later. Government forces then bombed the rebel camp where Machar was staying in the capital, forcing him to flee the country. Since the start of the conflict, troops loyal to both Machar and Kiir have carried out horrific atrocities against civilians, including rape and mass murder, leaving more than 50,000 people dead . Marys husband joined the opposition fighters early on in the conflict, and was soon killed by Kiirs forces, leaving her to raise their children on her own. The moonshine that Mary makes to survive is illegal in certain communities in South Sudan, including in the U.

S. inner cities, including when he said in August that African Americans should vote for him because we will make your streets safe so when you walk down the street, you don't get shot. He reprised his apocalyptic rhetoric on Friday, vowing to stop the “American carnage.” There is much economic data indicating the country is in better shape than it was eight years ago when Obama took office amid the Great Recession. But Trump’s gloom-and-doom portrayal of America is central to his core narrative — that the country is in need of a political outsider promising a major departure from the status quo. Since Election Day, Trump has been trying to make nice with the GOP establishment he used as a foil on the campaign trail. But his address put establishment Republicans on notice that he still isnt one of them. He made a direct appeal to “the people,” blasting the Washington establishment and laying blame for America’s problems on both political parties.

(credit: BT Sport) Ten months after its last price hike, BT has confirmed that charges for its broadband and landline services are being jacked up again. Additionally, BT Sport customers will—unsurprisingly—be required to pay £3.50 a month from the start of the next football season (August 1), the former state monopoly added. It has sunk huge amounts of cash into the venture, so a price tag at some point was inevitable. During the company's most recent quarter, ended September 30 last year, it said that broadcasting rights charges for BT Sport stood at £177 million—up £42 million to pay for UEFA games.

Former President Jimmy Carter's attendance at Donald Trump's inauguration on Friday makes him the oldest former commander-in-chief to attend a presidential inauguration ceremonya fact made more remarkable by his recovery from a cancer diagnosis less than two years ago. Carter, now 92, announced in August 2015 that he had been diagnosed with cancer. He later said he thought he had just a few weeks to live. When he began treatment, the melanoma had spread to his liver and brain. But by that December, Carter announced he was cancer-free. In a further sign of recovery, in March 2016, Carter said his doctors had told him he no longer needed cancer treatments which had been a combination of radiation and the new immunotherapy drug pembrolizumab . Immunotherapy, an innovative new approach to treating cancer , uses the body's immune system to fight the diseasesometimes by enhancing the immune system and sometimes by targeting specific cancer cells.

Ironically, the CIA was sold on Geller’s powers as a result of tests conducted between August 4 and August 11 in 1973, but on August 1, Geller famously was a guest on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and failed to demonstrate his ability to bend spoons successfully. The documents released dont indicate when the program ended, though officials have previously indicated that the CIA scrapped the program in 1995, saying they never got anything useful out of it.
