Ideological infighting and Trump's own rather uninformed indecision seems to be the cause for an unprecedented situation. It makes Obama's problems in that area, and those will be discussed in "All the President's Generals," about both Trump and Obama, appear relatively minor.

Jeffrey Brown talks with Jarmusch and poet Ron Padgett, who composed poems for the film.

I mean I think the arts in this country should be accessible to all and we are whether people like to admit that or not, we are a multicultural society and we’re here, we pay our taxes, we work and we should be given a chance to perform at least our own roles, you know." SOT, Rebecca Boey (English): "There's no reason for it, there are loads of us, there are loads of east Asian actors who would have been perfectly good for the roles but actually it’s not really about that because they werent looking for us, they never came to us, it never crossed their minds that they needed to cast east Asians and that actually is the root of the problem."

Hope is a big part of my being. There's a wall between me and the people who are throwing rocks, and it's glass. They're throwing rocks at the Constitution, and we have to be strong enough to turn them back. At 94, still working on his own version of how to “make America great again,” he asks some provocative questions about the Military-Industrial Complex, which has continued to grow like a strangling weed around democracy. Today, on the 56th anniversary of former General and President Dwight Eisenhower’s unprecedented warning about the threat of uncontrolled militarism, Lear’s call to action has never been more timely. We’re pleased to have Norman as a reader and supporter of WhoWhatWhy. Introduction by Russ Baker, Editor in Chief. ****** Dear Who What and Why: I have a WHY for you. And a bit of a challenge, too. First, a bit of biography: I served in the 15th Air Force in WW II, in a B-17 bomber, out of Foggia, Italy.

"Don't do to someone what you wouldn't want done to yourself." This, and Australian hardiness, is presumably how injuries are avoided. 3. Only Recycled Cardboard Allowed. It's fun…and eco-friendly! 4. Kids Get the Armor Afterwards While participants must be 18 or older, after a battle is concluded children from the audience swarm onto the battlefield to plunder. This fourth Boxwars rule states that "Warriors are requested to forfeit their armour (intact, damaged or destroyed) to any minor who desires it post battle. Kids are the next generation of warriors, and although they cannot participate until they are older, the flame is passed in this ritual of Boxwars." To that end, the group also regularly hosts workshops for kids, where they help them realize their own cardboard pieces.

And since 320-million citizens cannot fit into the briefing room, the 49 reporters who represent them there must be free to challenge the president without fear of reprisal, threat of ejection, or being banned. If one of their own gets "Acosta'd" again, perhaps all 49 White House reporters should get up and leave Trump and Spicer standing alone in the briefing room. I suspect that would make a strong point. And if the administration carries out its threatened changes and severely limits future media access, perhaps it should no longer cover Trump's bombastic tweets. Maybe it should also place a moratorium on appearances by Kellyann Conway and other surrogates who use the generous airtime afforded them to spread the administration's propaganda. To be sure, Trump needs the media more than it needs him. He's an attention-starved, self-aggrandizing showman, and without the media there is no show.

Vin Diesel may be known for being fast and furious , but he really just wants to sing (and maybe dance ). When the actor stopped by The Late Late Show on Wednesday, he begged James Corden for a chance to audition for Carpool Karaoke . Corden was more than willing to let the x Xx star try out. However, because the show is designed around singers like Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber (and Michelle Obama, of course) singing along to their own music, the question was what would Corden and Diesel sing in the car? Luckily, Diesel came prepared for that question. With a little help from Corden, Diesel proved his mettle, by singing a few bars from Consider Yourself from the 1960 musical. The audience cheered the performance, and Diesel turned to them to ask, How many of you wish you could do Carpool Karaoke? Am I entitled? Can I get a shot here? Can I do Carpool Karaoke? Can I do it in New York City in my hometown? After that audition, Corden just might consider it.

To save relays, he uses a 1-bit ALU. There are quite a few others out there including [Simon Winder's] impressive build to compute square roots with a telephone dial (see video below). We've covered some other cool relay builds in the past, including this 8-bit marvel that uses 152 relays and reads its programming from paper using optical sensing. There's also this much larger computer that even has its own online simulator. Go For It! If you've ever thought about building a computer with relays, this should give you plenty of inspiration. Just keep in mind that relays are deceptively simple: they are non-ideal devices made of coils and strips of spring steel. For example, arcing across contacts is bad, right? Depends. Some contact material depends on arcing to clean corrosion. Others just pit and fail. There's a lot of subtlety to relays and a lot of their perceived unreliability is really just misapplication.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova urged for the Kremlin to receive more information, in Moscow on Monday, after the state TV channel, RT, was temporarily blocked from posting anything but text to Facebook. Zakharova was speaking after RT was notified that it would be blocked until 22:55 local time (19:55 GMT) on Saturday, due to an alleged infringement of rights over a livestream of President Barack Obama’s final press conference, but the ban was lifted around 19:00 (16:00 GMT). The Foreign Ministry spokesperson recommended that "a list of all those violations that took place” should be made, adding that it “is necessary to wait for the official answers.” Zakharova recalled that her own Facebook account was once blocked “due to technical issues,” but after “the relevant changes were made, the post on the account was unblocked.

People must have the right to know different news coming from different sources and then make their own judgment, said Nikolov, in conclusion to a very moving personal speech about his own family's experience of propaganda during the mid 20th century Soviet era. See Nikolov's full address, along with the other speakers here: . The ceremony also featured the screening of a stunning new film for RT Documentaries entitled, Children of the Front about the role of child soldiers in Central African Republic's horrific civil war. The film recently won a Omni Award for its production. This announcement comes in front of a political backdrop in America which has become Anti-Russian after one of the country's most divisive election cycles in US history, with accusations of Russia hacking the US election elevating public fear and partisan angst to near hysterical levels.
