It's a scary amount of power and now we're giving it to a thin-skinned demagogue who already uses his Twitter account as a weapon. The short documentary, War Authority , takes a look at the controversial act of congress. It examines how the AUMF was passed with a vote of 420 to 1, and the lone dissenter. Director Matthew Palmer told Outspeak, "War Authority began as a very different film. It was simply about Congresswoman Barbara Lee, the sole member of Congress to vote against the 2001 AUMF. After interviewing her, however, I decided that more people had to know about the AUMF and its implications. Then, the 2016 election happened, and the matter became even more pressing." Now President Donald Trump has nearly unlimited authority to bomb, detain, and monitor just about anyone. We should all be concerned, so help spread the word. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

A new law going into effect in the U.K. gives the British government sweeping new surveillance capabilities. The Investigatory Powers Act grants intelligence agencies and local authorities the right to access the internet history of any British citizen they target. It may be the most extreme surveillance act in the Western world. Later this year, the British government will be able to require internet service providers to record the websites and messaging applications their customers visit and keep that information for one year. The data will then be available for use by 48 different national and local authorities without the need for a warrant.

And even if they don't use relays to do it, most FPGAs use mux-based logic inside. So it's worth your time to dig into the past and see how simply switching between two connections can make a computer. Mux Mania How do you go from a two input mux to an arbitrary logic gate? Simple, if you paid attention to the banner image. (Or try it interactive ). The mux symbols show the inputs to the left, the output to the right and the select input at the bottom. If the select is zero, the 0 input becomes the output. If the select is one, the 1 input routes to the output. Obviously, a relay with two poles can act like two gates (the input at the bottom has to be the same for both gates). You can also work out a buffer (swap the inputs of the NOT gate), or A OR NOT B and A AND NOT B. It is also possible to do things like wired OR with relays.

Trump’s pick for education secretary Betsy DeVos wants her and her billionaire friends to be able to set up more cheap, substandard, charter schools all over the country. These schools rake in federal dollars yet arent held to any standards. The substandard parts are where the owner class saves (pockets) the money. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Donald Trump’s nominee for education secretary appeared stumped by senators when they asked her about a federal education law related to discrimination during her confirmation hearing Tuesday night. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) asked Betsy DeVos about how she’d enforce the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. IDEA, as the law is known, requires that public schools provide children with disabilities a “free and appropriateeducation just like other students.

"MUNY to me is the subway performance equivalent of 'you have to act nice and wear nice clothes in order for your rights to be respected'." Rayquan Perez, 21, is a subway dancer with 2Live Crew, a group of b-boy dancers that's been around for over a decade. Perez started dancing when he was 9 years old. He says dancing on the train, from the 4 line through Harlem and the Bronx to the Q line from Midtown to Brooklyn, helps him pay the bills. He and his partners, all of whom are young men of color, also dance at parties and do shows to help make ends meet. The MUNY program doesn't have enough spots to accommodate the growing number of dancers and performers in the city, Perez says. Either way, he and other dancers would still prefer to dance on cars, where they enjoy a lot of support and make more money, even if the threat of cops makes it inconvenient.

During the past few years, Obamacare has been one of the most controversial and talked about policies in the United States. Since its inception, Obamacare has faced its fair share of opposition, and with Donald Trump coming into office, those flames have again been fanned. Jimmy Kimmel was curious about how the public really felt about Obamacare. Specifically, he asked people if they preferred Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. Of course, those two are the same thing. But from the responses he got, many people don't know that they are the same thing. Someone actually thought Obamacare was when "Obama pays for you."

8 mile dual carriageway tunnel to improve journey times, remove the sight and sound of traffic and enhance the world heritage site.” Traffic on the A303, with Stonehenge in the background. (OGL v3.0) The Telegraph reports that this tunnel has been a long time coming – it has been delayed for 30 years by fears of stepping on the toes of historians and environmentalists. And perhaps they were right to be concerned, Global News reports there are strong worries coming out by historians and history enthusiasts that the tunnel will cause more problems than it could solve. As historian Tom Holland has stated in a Youtube video ‘No Tunnel!’: “I think it would be a catastrophe — an act of vandalism that would shame our country and our generationStonehenge did not exist in isolation. Stretching all around it are traces stamped, not just in the field, in the very subsoil of Salisbury Plain — the most archaeologically significant landscape anywhere in Europe.

It was a fun match, but that sort of finish is meant to cheat the babyfaces out of a title victory. Not give the heels sympathy heat. Rich Swann vs Tony Nese Aries started off this segment by saying he's the best thing about the Cruiserweight matches on Raw. Usually he'd be correct, but then out came Nev-Heel to beat up Swann, so the match never got started. Big E beat Titus O'Neil Titus O'Neil and the New Day had an in-ring promo segment. Again. For the third week in a row. The New Day are most definitely entertaining, but they've been part of more horrendous segments on Raw than anyone else since the brand split. Their act doesn't seem to allow their opponents to look strong during their promos together. Charlotte's Winning Strategy Although Charlotte went on a bit, I thought this was an effective promo building the jock-like bullying of Bayley storyline.

...I tried to over correct but it didn't help. As soon as I hit the guardrail my airbags came out and because of the airbags and seatbelt the injuries weren't near as bad as they could have been. But what I do remember is going in and out of consciousness screaming for help and cars just continued to pass. It felt like I had been laying there for at least twenty minutes begging for help. And then a man stopped and ran over to me and got the police my way...so thank you to the amazing man that stopped and helped me as everyone else was passing. I have no idea who you are but thank you...I could never repay you for your act of kindness. Also...to all of you hurtful people that are saying that I deserved it and got what was coming for me...you need Jesus and I'll help by praying for you. And to all of those who are being supportive...I thank you very much.
