I had forgotten how goofy the monster noises were in the epic Kirk vs Gorn battle. With this excellent mask and a few groans you too could rough up Starfleet's more daring Captain. https://youtu.be/4SK0cUNMnMM Evidently you'll need to make your own body suit, but the mask looks nicer than the actual prop.

Pope Francis surprised the attendees at the 2017 TED conference by beaming in from the Vatican for a talk, where he preached humility and togetherness and argued for a revolution of kindness . While attendees at the annual gathering of innovators, futurists, activists, and tech gurus are used to a star-studded stage, the arrival of the Pope seemed particularly moving, even for secular watchers. Sephen Colbert, though, was impressed for an altogether different reason: I think its impressive for an 80-year old to set up his own web cam, the comedian joked, noting, Its not like he can get help from the grandkids. While the Popes surprise appearance at TED would be hard to top, Colbert was up to the challenge. He knew one guy who could upstage the PopeJesus Christ himself.

In sign painting he found a skill that could be honed over a lifetime. It's two years of practice before you can feel comfortable and happy in your ability, he says. I think it was the idea that it's such a refined skill that you can spend a very long period of time working on and mastering. Sign painting just has this calm beauty to it, when you see someone who is very practiced at it do it well. He now splits his time between creating bespoke signage for businesses across London and creating his own personal pieces.

Seth Meyers has seemed to realize that his best line of attack on Donald Trump is to use the presidents own words against him. On Late Night , Meyers argued that almost every action Trump has taken during his first 100 days in office, there is a Trump tweet that argues against that actionat least when it was taken by President Barack Obama. It is at this point like a law of physics: For every Trump action, theres an equal and opposite Trump clip, Meyers said on his Wednesday show. Meyers happened upon this idea thanks to one particular issue that Trump had completely backtracked, according to Meyersexecutive orders. Particularly, the number of executive orders that Trump has signed during his relatively short tenure in the White House. The White House released a statement bragging that Trump will have signed 30 executive orders during his first 100 days, which is ridiculous, Meyers said.

Kirsten Howard Louisa Mellor Apr 27, 2017 It looks like season 5 of Vikings will be keeping it in the family as Katheryn Winnicks brothers join the cast... Vikings star Katheryn Winnick blew countless minds earlier this week when she checked in on Instagram from Dublin and revealed that both of her real-life brothers had been sharing the frame alongside her while filming the fifth season of The History Channel's hit show. See related Vikings renewed for season 5 Although there's no denying that the Winnicks are one preposterously attractive set of siblings, it was only after eyes drifted to the hashtags on her post that people started to wonder what might be brewing over there in Ireland. Have a look... This happened..Yesterday on the set of Vikings.. all 3 Winnick's shared the same scene.. same frame %uD83D%uDC4A#Lagertha #KingAngantyr #Bommy #blueeyedsiblings #missingDaria #waitforit A post shared by Katheryn Winnick (@katherynwinnick) on Apr 25, 2017 at 1:48am PDT Yes, it seems there may be a new king in Lagertha's midst during the upcoming fifth season, presumably played by one of her own brothers.

I wish there was peace, I still support a two state solution. He had this to say about Palestinians, and how indifferent they are to their own people: In Jericho we were joined by a Palestinian journalist who works with the New York Times. He's no Zionist. He wants to live in a Palestinian state coexisting with a Jewish state. After our meeting he said to us that 24 years later the Palestinian Authority has an interest in the status quo, in not resolving the political impasse. The Palestinian Authority is corrupt, he said... building palatial homes within eyesight of refugee camps, paid for by foreign money. He told us that none of these leader ever set foot in refugee camps. What kind of people, what kind of leadership, would tolerate five generations of refugees and blame it all on the Jews?! Would the Jews tolerate leadership like that, that condones generation after generation of Jews, living in squalor, forgotten by their own leadership that presumes to act and speak on their behalf? Would Americans tolerate this? Would the French? The British? Hirsch told of his group's trip to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and reflected on the question the Holocaust memorial raises: why the allies did not bomb Auschwitz in 1944 (a theme that Laurence Zuckerman dealt with in the Nation ).

In other words, do your own damned research. Google can’t tell you everything. 2. What is a general election? :( 3. Which constituency am I in? That’s actually a really good question. As I hinted at before, where you live makes a huge difference as to who you want to cast your vote for, and searching for this on Google points you straight to a site that will tell you via your postcode . Yay. 4. How do I register to vote? This is another good one, with some estimates suggesting over a million voters werent registered in 2015 . The good news is that this search seems to be having a real impact, with the government site for voter registration seeing over 550,000 applications since Theresa May announced the snap election on 18 April. Go register now, if you havent already . I'll wait. 5. When was the last general election? How quickly we forget.

The majority of the materials that remain sealed go to the heart of Sater’s cooperation in several highly sensitive matters ,” Lynch wrote to Hatch. Photo credit: See complete attribution below. The public has no idea of what the remaining sealed files contain, other than Lynch’s tantalizing remark. The nation and world are now riveted by investigations into the Trump campaign’s putative role in Russian attempts to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. The issues raised go to the heart of the integrity of the electoral process. The traditional rationale for cloaking information about an informant's identity or the scope of his disclosures is to protect the informant’s safety. But Sater’s own behavior suggests that he does not fear for his own safety as a consequence of cooperating with law enforcement officials. In this vein, it is worth noting that Sater undertook the Ukrainianpeace proposalmission, which carried with it a reasonable possibility of generating headlines — as it did.

Think you've heard enough of James Blunt's 2004 hit "You're Beautiful"? Fair enough, it's highly annoying. But if self-effacing tweets are anything to go by, nobody is more sick of the song than James Blunt himself. So when the British pop artist sat down with Australian comedian Tom Gleeson for an intentionally cringey interview segment on The Weekly called "Hard Chat," he gave as well as he got. And he got a lot of mocking. SEE ALSO: PSA: Australia is only dangerous 'if you're a dumbass' The resulting interview is peppered with p*ss-taking, and even Gleeson struggles to keep it completely together as Blunt tears his own career to shreds, and proclaims himself a musical genius in equal measure.
