recent months and years, we've become used to Theresa May and politicians giving messages of condolences to cities like Paris and Nice and Brussels and it is unusual to see London the subject of that outpouring, but also very encouraging to see the international community react with such solidarity to what.

It was 3am, and astronomer Maurizio Pajola had been up for hours looking through images taken by the Rosetta spacecraft of its dumpy, duck-shaped comet. Pajola had just started a new job studying Mars moon Phobos at NASAs Ames Research Centre. The only time he could continue this work on the Rosetta mission was the middle of the night. His eyes were beginning to glaze over when he spotted something unusual: A patch of something bright and white shining out from the comets...

Inside a BT telephone exchange. Click and drag to move the camera. BT's Openreach infrastructure division, which will soon escape from the BT mothership with some 32,000 employees under its twisted copper arms and form a separate company, has released a 360-degree walkthrough video of a modern telephone exchange. This is somewhat unusual: there are low-res photos of telephone exchanges online, and some historical illustrations of telephone exchanges for educational purposes, but a high-res walkthrough of an active exchange is quite rare. The first thing you'll notice is just how tidy the room is. It looks like a server room, or perhaps even a small data centre, with very few exposed wires and some nice overhead ducting. Unlike a data centre, though, natural light floods in through some windows (I expected more security, really). Sadly we don't know the location of the exchange, but judging by the size of the car park outside, the building presumably houses more than just an exchange.

Comey said. Mr. Comey said that it was unusual for the F.B.I. to confirm or deny the existence of any investigations, but that in unusual circumstances when it is in the public interest, the bureau will sometimes discuss such matters. “This is one of those circumstances,” he said. “The F.B.I., as part of our counterintelligence effort, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 president election,” he continued, adding that the investigation included looking at whether associates of Mr. Trump were in contact with Russian officials, and whether they colluded with them.” Read more here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/20/us/politics/intelligence-committee-russia-donald-trump.html Hosts: Cenk Uygur Cast: Cenk Uygur *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Gerald Kaufman, who died on 26th February 2017 at the age of 86, was the son of Jewish immigrants from Poland who won a scholarship to Leeds grammar school and Queen’s College, Oxford. He was one of the original members of Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson’s kitchen cabinet. Entering the House of Commons in 1970 for the constituency of Ardwick (later Gorton) in Manchester, he was known for his eccentricity of dress. Having served as an MP for 47 continuous years, Kaufman became the Father of the House of Commons. Kaufman was on the Right of the Labour Party and was famous for having unfairly described Labour’s 1983 election manifesto as ‘the longest suicide note in history.’ Yet he was an unusual right-winger known for taking up causes that usually belonged to the Left. Kaufman deserves credit for, almost single handedly, putting steel into Tony Blair’s backbone over the quaint British custom of fox hunting.

These corporations will be able to steal from and poison the American people, without consequence, if H.R. 985 and H.R. 1215 pass into law as they currently stand. The Myth of the Frivolous Lawsuit People like Representative Goodlatte claim that congressionally mandated judicial reform is necessary because there are too many frivolous lawsuits. This is a myth that has been repeated so many times that many, maybe even most, people think that it's true. Of course, there are cases where an unscrupulous attorney or greedy plaintiff succeeds in getting a large payoff, but that situation is unusual, and it is far more common for legitimately injured people to be unable to gain justice (for the reasons described above) than it is for a frivolous lawsuit to move forward and win in court. This skit from Adam Ruins Everything , though it is meant to be humorous, excellently explains how the myth of the frivolous lawsuit was started, perpetrated, and promoted by large corporations: The case described in the video, that of Liebeck vs.

Have you ever wondered what the most absurd yet effective brainstorming environment would be for you? We haven't either. But the minds behind C2 have, which is why each year they have a new "experimental brainstorming" setting, to help attendees become their most creative in the most unusual of surroundings, like in a row of chairs suspended 18 feet off the ground.

We love seeing new takes on existing ideas, and [Danny] certainly took the word clock concept in an unusual direction with his Wordsearch Clock . Instead of lighting up words to spell out the time, [Danny] decided to embrace the fact that the apparent jumble of letters on the clock face resembles a word search puzzle. In a word search puzzle, words can be found spelled forward or backward with letters lined up horizontally, diagonally, or vertically. All that matters is that the correct letters are in a line and sequentially adjacent to one another. [Danny]'s clock lights up the correct letters and words one after the other, just as if it were solving a word search puzzle for words that just happen to tell the correct time. You can see it in action in the video, embedded below. [Danny] went the extra mile in the planning phase. After using a word search puzzle generator tool to assist in designing the layout, he wrote a Processing sketch to simulate the clock's operation.

Russia's Special Envoy to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, stated that the absence of armed opposition groups "does not lessen the importance of the Astana process," while speaking on the final day of the Syrian peace talks in the Kazakh capital on Tuesday. The Russian diplomat went on to say that the Russian side "feels sorry about this decision" and called "the pretext under which the Syrian armed opposition has decided not to participate to be unconvincing." SOT, Alexander Lavrentiev, Russia's Special Envoy to Syria (Russian): "The meeting in Kazakhstan is taking place in rather unusual conditions; the Syrian armed opposition has refused to arrive in Astana for a new round of talks. Of course we feel sorry about this decision and we consider the pretext under which the Syrian armed opposition has decided not to participate to be unconvincing. We believe that any dialogue is better than silence and it is better to address all questions, all concerns in a direct discussion with all the parties involved: whether it is the Syrian government, or the Iranian representatives or the Russian delegation.

Hlehel, like Taha, belongs to Israel’s large minority of Palestinian citizens, numbering today some 1.7 million, or one in five of the population. They have found themselves forced into a unique and troubled position: inside Israel territorially and nominally as citizens, but outside the state’s Jewish self-definition, Israel’s popular consensus and its circle of ethnic privilege. As a result, the minority has acquired an unusual and illuminating perspective on both the Israeli and Palestinian experience. Young Palestinians in Israel, says Hlehel, are tired of thinking about the Nakba only as a political event, or a piece of tragic history. The outlines of the Nakba are increasingly known, even to foreign audiences: more than 750,000 Palestinians were expelled in 1948 – and their hundreds of villages razed – to create a Jewish state on the ruins of their homeland.

And the journalists’ that I was with, from the New York Times, BBC, and other venues or other sites . . . we were at the Rasi hospital which is one of the main hospitals in Aleppo and we saw some of the injured coming into the hospital and we saw some of the corpses of those killed in these attacks coming to the morgue around the corner from the hospital. And in the piece the New York Times journalist later wrote – I dont remember verbatim what she said – but it was implying that this kind of attack was unusual, where we’d been told, and anybody who researches even a little bit about Aleppo would know, we’ve been told that, on a daily basis, or near daily basis, the people of Aleppo were being attacked by mortars, gas canister bombs, etc. But, in her report, she couldnt simply state what she had seen, she had to imply that this was somewhat unusual and she had to qualify it with an unsubstantiated report by the Syrian Observatory For Human Rights which is based in the U.
