That’s bad news for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose Bharatiya Janata Party is battling a crucial state election in Uttar Pradesh that began on Feb. 11. The election is just one of five state polls taking place across India. Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur are voting as well, with results for all states announced on March 11. In the 2014 general election, Modi swept this poor state of 200 million people by promising development. But for farmers like Singh, who voted the BJP into national office, it is not Modi but Yadav’s administration that’s delivered on its promises. The success of the expressway and other projects has allowed the Samajwadi government to hijack Modi’s mantra of development. Now it’s possible the BJP could lose India’s most important state election, endangering further economic reforms and sapping Modi’s momentum ahead of the 2019 national elections.

Likewise, resistance by Hezbollah during the 2006 Lebanon-Israel war secured the liberation of areas in south Lebanon occupied by Israel. Therefore, the only way to counter Israel’s ambitions is resistance. Iran has explicitly put forward numerous ideas in order to reinforce resistance. Tehran itself has, loud and clear, announced its support for resistance both in occupied Palestine and in the region. In fact, Iran has practical proposals, both at the political level and on the ground, on helping settle the Palestine issue. Why Is Palestine Important to Iran? Iran regards Palestine as one of the key issues in the region due to different reasons. First, ideologically speaking, Quds was Muslims’ first Qibla. Second, ethically speaking, the Palestinian people are oppressed. Zionists have had Palestinian territories under occupation for 70 years now and continue to grab more Palestinian land.

" The organization says the research is important to understanding how culture influences beliefs in the paranormal. "The objective of the project is to document, in a serious and meaningful way, Bering Strait residents' knowledge about, experiences with, and beliefs about supernatural phenomena," the group said. "We think that this information is important to understanding how people relate to their environment and that there are culturally specific understandings of these phenomena which have not been previously documented." The National Park Services originally announced its intention to award a $150,000 grant outside the normal competitive process to Kawerak for the supernatural study in March 2016. The grant announcement said the study would also include "animals with transformative powers, a variety of other non-human persons, landscape features with special powers, and other similar phenomena.

Rumors that Nvidia is about to unveil its powerful GTX 1080 Ti graphics card have been swirling, with many suggesting that an event held in San Francisco on February 28 by the GPU maker would see it officially announced and it looks like the company may have accidentally spilled the beans early. In a bid to drum up more hype for the event (if any more was needed), Nvidias UK Twitter account tweeted a link with the words Its almost Time. #UltimateGeForce. As if bolding the 'Ti' in TI ME wasnt enough of a clue, people who visited the website and viewed the page source saw that the video was labelled GTX1080Ti_countdown. This has since been changed, but the cat appears to be out of the bag. So, has Nvidia spoiled its own surprise? Maybe not, as the emphasis on Ti in Time all but confirmed it anyway.

Trump still has Cabinet members awaiting confirmation, and key positions throughout the government remain vacant as Trump and his advisers insist they are doing the best they can in the face of united Democratic opposition, particularly in the Senate. Officials familiar with the speech planning said Trump is expected to tout companies such as Intel and Carrier that have announced since his election plans to either expand operations or keep more jobs domestically. It’s part of Trump’s recent message that “I inherited a mess” and an attempt to frame any jobs or stock market growth as his doing, after he described in his inaugural a deeply struggling nation even amid more positive broader economic indicators. Spicer said on Monday of the speech: “The president is going to lay out I think two main things—where we’ve come and where we’re going.” And after the speech, plans are in the works to put both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence back on the road, after staff saw how visibly invigorated Trump was by his weekend campaign rally in Florida.

My sense is that almost everyone who has voted is going to have an opportunity to talk to both the two front-runners and, myself included, I think everybody really likes both of them. Most of the discussion I've heard is it's really people voting for one of them but not against everybody. The email survey reveals what is essentially a two-candidate race in the final days before the Feb. 25 vote in Atlanta. Ellison, a Bernie Sanders supporter during the 2016 Democratic primary, holds a modest lead over Perez, with the rest of the field lagging far behind, according to the 176 DNC members who responded. After Ellison and Perez, the next largest group of respondents is undecided. Perez's team announced last week he had secured 180 pledged votes, just 44 votes short of the amount needed to win a majority. In response, Ellison accused his rival of trying to exert pressure” on DNC members.
