He sure ain't wrong about everything. In fact, his not all that surprisingly successful career helps illuminate the realities of our situation. Whereas President Barack Obama, as much as I continue to like him, tended to distract from some harsh realities. His presence has made things seem better than they were. A year after the curdled satire of CSNY's once hopeful ' American Dream ' album, Neil Young in solo mode released the corruscatingly angry rock anthem ' Rockin' In the Free World .' He and Trump feuded ferociously over Trump's seemingly bizarre attempt to use it as his 2016 presidential campaign theme song. Now we know we're in trouble. Meanwhile, Trump's transition is staggering into his presidency. Aside from the headliners at Defense, State, and the National Security Council, Trump is amazingly going forward with virtually no subcabinet for his geopolitical team.

The content will be distributed on DailyMotion and on WhoHahas social channels. The Gym Heros spot was written by and stars Deirdre Devlin and Vana Dabney of female sketch comedy team Honest Monster. It was directed by Kai Collins and Deena Adar from production company Quiet Duke. Adweek caught up with Banks to see why she wanted to partner with the AHA and whether shes got any Super Bowl plans. Adweek: Why partner with the American Heart Association? What does this do for WhoHaha? Elizabeth Banks: Whats so great about this collaboration in my mind is that I sort of got my start directing as a woman in Hollywood with the American Heart Association. I directed and starred in a video for them a few years ago now, and it was very successful and won some awards and was one of the first times that the AHA used humor to hook in the audience about heart disease in women.

Since the coded pilot whale sounds were synthesized, and therefore identical, receiving and decoding them was merely a matter of recognizing a particular pattern as it came through the machine. A real whale’s call, with its unique combinations of pitch and timbre, would produce a slightly different readout, and could be weeded out as noise with the help of recognition software. “It was never successful,” writes Dr. Christopher Willes Clark, founder of the Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program, in an email. “The process of projecting codedwhalesounds out to functional distances is not viable.” Despite the promise of those initial tests, the technological barriers proved too large to overcome, and subsequent attempts in future years also failed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI2VqZYsW_k Obligatory reference to Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDTCXy6VQ_c

Onyeabor was simply referred to as "The Chief”. He was known for having created many opportunities for the people in his community. In his early 30s, he traveled the world to study record manufacturing, so that he could build, "the greatest record manufacturing business in all of West Africa." After those successful years as an artist and record label President in the 1980's, he opened a flour mill and food processing business. In 1987 these new business ventures saw him awarded West African Industrialist of the Year—just two years after the release of his most successful song "When The Going is Smooth and Good", and what should have been the height of his musical career. He was given the honorary title "Justice of the Peace"—a local judicial position elected by the community to provide independent legal ruling. In the early 1990's, he became the President of Enugu's Musician's Union and Chairman of the city's local football team, The Enugu Rangers.

As they try to break through the Peak TV glut and grab viewers, broadcast networks have been relying heavily on new shows based on popular intellectual property (IP), like Lethal Weapon, MacGyver and the upcoming Training Day and Taken. But The CWs new drama Riverdalebased on the Archie Comics charactersoffers the seasons most intriguing test as to whether IP can truly help launch a show, even if its intended audience will likely have very little knowledge of the source material. Riverdale, which premieres Jan. 26, finds Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead entangled in racy storylines miles from the world of the squeaky-clean comics book, which launched in the 40s. The premiere episode alone features a murder, a hush-hush student/teacher affair and dark secrets galore. Its an interesting conundrum: the IP builds awareness, but if youre then changing too much of the DNA, are you risking pushing the audience away? said executive producer Greg Berlanti, who was intrigued by the opportunity to mine the originality of the characters, which had made the Archie comics so successful.

The schemes can be great. The concepts can be great, but until you make that connection with your players and get them to believe they're getting better and they can see they're getting better and you're giving them ownership of the room and having conversations and dialogues. That's been the biggest thing for me as a coach is trying to make a connection with the players. Once you can set the hook, you got their attention. At this point, it seems like only a matter of time before Vrabel gets the opportunity to become a head coach in the NFL. A successful year with the Texans defense next season could make him the most prized option available next offseason. Moving up the ladder again in Houston could be possible in 2018. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network noted the Texans considered moving on from Bill O'Brien before their playoff win over the injury-depleted Oakland Raiders , either through a trade or a "mutual parting of the ways.

And so, when the opportunity came up to license it, we pounced on it. Its exciting. The Handmaids Tale, coming in April, is getting very strong early buzz. What does it mean to have a show like that on Hulu, especially in the new political landscape well be in when it debuts? Whats interesting is I think The Handmaids Tale novel is one of those pieces of literature thats timeless. Its a relevant piece of material. Thats why its such a beloved novel, and people are still reading it today. For us, its great existing intellectual property. The writing was fantastic, the cast is amazing, and it looks great. We think it has all of those pieces, and we couldnt be more happy with where it is right now. And we cant wait to get it out to the public. Thats based on a book, but do you feel like if the series is successful, it could go on for several years? Yeah, theres a lot of good story there, and were excited to see where they take it.

Each week with every film we produce we're going to aim to give you a bit of a gallery behind the scenes. This week we're in the mountain roads of Arizona with driver and owner Terry Larson. As you're well aware by this point, Terry's D-Type is anything but ordinary. From our film article: There are cars with history, and then there is OKV 2. The second works D-Type to roll out of the factory in Coventry in 1954 was immediately handed to Sterling Moss, where he and co driver Peter Walker set a new record speed on the Mulsanne Straight. A chipper 172.97 miles per hour. Over the next years the car would be held by the hands of some of the most capable racing drivers of the era. Norman Dewis , Peter Whitehead , Tony Role , Ken Wharton and Duncan Hamilton just to name a few. It went on to a successful career in the mid to late fifties racing around the UK and European circuits, but not without a significant series of crashes and rebuilds.

This here is a brilliant piece of industrial design: It's functional, durable, makes intelligent and economical use of materials and can easily be mass produced. So successful was the design that it was copied by most major competitors. Most importantly, it's long-lived; the original design was created over 100 years ago, and this object's subsequent iterations are still used and prized today by many. The object in question is the German mess kit (k ochgeschirr ) used during World War II. Check out some of its design features, demonstrated here by bushcrafter, hunter and reviewer Virtuovice: The sharp-eyed among you may have spotted this slot--which he does not elaborate on--cut into the inner container: So what's that for? This, as demonstrated by OutdoorGearReview: As far as we can tell, the original design of the German mess kit started with the Kochgeschirr M1887, designed in the late 19th or early 20th Century: Image via La Grande Guerre As you can see, the panhandle on this design was detachable and carried separately.

We come from different places, have our individual jobs, families, hobbies, charms, quirks and beliefs. But among the things we all have in common: everybody everywhere knows somebody whos a giant asshole. That indelicate little fact of life made a PSA promoting organ donation one of the most successful ads of the past year, and probably one of the most daring pieces of marketing everbeginning with its very racy title. The Worlds Biggest Assholea nearly three-minute film created by The Martin Agency for client Donate Life , an organ donation advocacy grouptells the story of Coleman F. Sweeney, an unseemly character who, among other things, pees in a beer bottle while speeding along in his pickup, then tosses it out the window; shoots his paint gun at a neighbors dog; steals womens underwear from a laundromat, and childrens Halloween candy; and haggles with a waitress over the skimpy portion of fries that comes with a $1.

Quite simply, many people felt that the elites had stolen their democracy…. The lack of redistributive policies is the main source of the dissatisfaction that democracy’s opponents have exploited…. I was an avid supporter of the European Union from its inception. I regarded it as the embodiment of the idea of an open society: an association of democratic states willing to sacrifice part of their sovereignty for the common good…. But then something went woefully wrong. After the Crash of 2008, a voluntary association of equals was transformed into a relationship between creditors and debtors, where the debtors had difficulties in meeting their obligations and the creditors set the conditions the debtors had to obey. That relationship has been neither voluntary nor equal. Germany emerged as the hegemonic power in Europe, but it failed to live up to the obligations that successful hegemons must fulfill, namely looking beyond their narrow self-interest to the interests of the people who depend on them….

For the half year, net profits came in at US$3.7mln from a US$2.6mln deficit the last time. Production in the second quarter totalled 6,852 ounces (8,172) as the company cut back ahead of the move deeper at San Gregorio. Costs were also higher due to the switch underground at US$914 an oz (US$858) due to shifting staff and equipment over. But that was planned said Salazar and overall operations were healthy with US$7mln of cash also generated in the first half. “The successful transition to San Gregorio UG as the Company’s primary source of ore feed to the plant in Uruguay, was a significant achievement for Orosur,” he added. Guidance for the full year remains in a range of 35,000 to 40,000 oz of gold at operating cash costs of between $800 - $900/oz. Rolling in the deeps House broker Cantor said Orosur made significant progress towards defining new deposits and reserves close to its existing operations over the half year.
