I wrote in the past that most of the country, about two-thirds, would reject Trump and vote against him. I was naive and wrong. I think that eventually, as Trump fails, many will fall off. Probably only that third of the country, like barnacles, will continue to support him. Most of the country cannot. I was wrong. Eventually I may end up being right, most of the country may reject Trump, but I was wildly wrong in the shorter-term. Donald Trump is an exceedingly dangerous individual now. No doubts. We all need to wake up. I will be wrong again. For sure. You too. But Putin is our enemy and Trump appears to be his lackey. We should all watch very closely. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Plans to sell government stakes in energy enterprises have been in the works for around a decade. The State Property Fund announced plans to sell not only Odesa Portside Plant last year but six regional power supply companies, or oblenergos, and four combined heat-and-power plants on its privatization calendar. Later the State Property Fund pushed back the auction date of five of the oblenergos to January, and one to May, although it appears plans to sell five of the power distributors will again be postponed. Centrenergo, a company that owns three power plants in different regions of Ukraine, has also had its privatization pushed to 2017. Concorde Capital head of research Alexander Paraschiy said while the privatization of the energy sector as a whole doesnt need to be postponed, the State Property Fund should wait until parliament adopts the awaited legislative changes for the sector before selling off stakes in certain enterprises.

In any situation, we control only our own actions. Through them we either increase or decrease conflict. Even taking concrete steps that stand up for what we feel is right, intention and awareness of the larger picture can guide nuanced choices, but only if we stay out of autopilot and fear-driven reactivity. Protest and stand resolute, try to engage in conversation across the aisle, and through it all aim for agreement and collaboration instead of escalating conflict when possible. • Cultivate compassion. We're all struggling to find happiness in life, however messed up our approach to there sometimes appears from the outside. Mindfulness builds from self-compassion, the capacity to approach ourselves with the same kindness we treat our best friend. When feeling beleaguered and beaten up, we become miserable, lose faith, and may even mistreat those around us.

So, its possible that FilterPop could get squeezed out of the business if Snapchat expands its geofilter services to the more do-it-yourself, low-budget crowd. Additionally, another startup called Makeshake attempted a similar platform to FilterPops last summer but has already gone out of business. Therefore, Kehrs territory remains relatively unchartered and definitely appears to have potential pitfalls.

Louis to Los Angeles in 2016 and the Chargers joined the Rams in L.A. from San Diego this year. Per Benjamin Allbright of 104.7 FM in Denver , some Raiders players are already looking forward to the prospect of playing in Vegas: Assuming the move occurs, the Raiders will become the second major professional sports franchise in Las Vegas, as the Vegas Golden Knights will begin play as an NHL expansion team in 2017-18. The Raiders have a lengthy relocation history already, as they went from Oakland to Los Angeles in 1982 before moving back to Oakland for the 1995 season. Nothing is official until the league vote happens, but with seemingly no plans in place to keep the team in Oakland, a third move appears to be on the horizon. Follow @MikeChiari on Twitter.

Gamma-ray emission, on the other hand, is produced at higher altitudes in a larger region, allowing the respective pulses to sweep larger areas of the sky. For Geminga, we view the bright gamma ray pulses and the edge of the pulsar wind nebula torus, but the radio beams near the jets point off to the sides and remain unseen, Posselt says. Orientation matters, too The strongly bent lateral tails offer the astronomers clues to the geometry of the pulsar, which could be compared to either jet contrails soaring into space, or to a bow shock similar to the shockwave created by a bullet as it is shot through the air. Oleg Kargaltsev, assistant professor of physics at George Washington University, who worked on the study on B0355+54, says the orientation of B0355+54 plays a role in how astronomers see the pulsar, as well. The study appears in the Astrophysical Journal and is available online via arXiv .

It’s not too fussy or garish, and everything appears to be well knitted together. It shouldn't surprise you, then, to discover that this is a car almost exclusively designed in Europe, and the flair of designers Peter Schreyer and Gregory Guillaume really shines through. It’s simple, elegant and muscular all at once. It’s a design that works. Kia Stinger: Technology and audio The car might draw inspiration from the classics of the 20th century, but it’s packed with 21st-century toys. Naturally, the car comes with the full complement of safety and driver assistance tech, including forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking and “pedestrian recognition”. You get “advanced smart cruise control”, there’s lane keeping, rear cross traffic alerts, a top-down surround view to make parking super easy, blind-spot detection and automatic high-beam headlight adjustment.

The skills to succeed Many of these features already exist in one form or another, but not all in one place, and certainly not all in an AI assistant, so this sort of thing could be exactly what Samsung needs to convince people to use Bixby rather than the more familiar Google Now. SamMobile seems confident in this information, but notes that features can be added or removed at short notice, so theres no guarantee that Bixby will be integrated into the Galaxy S8s camera. But its likely, as it appears Samsung is looking to make the assistant a big focus on its next flagship, as the company has already confirmed Bixbys existence and some rumors even suggest there will be a dedicated Bixby button on the side of the phone. The HTC U Ultra also has a new AI companion

That’s not only a testament to the ingenuity of DMC and Mansory, but also to Bentley for creating a product that has proven to be worth all the hype it has received. Soon enough, we’re going to see more tuners develop kits for the Bentley Bentayga. That’s not a question of “if,” but “when.” For now though, Mansory and DMC headline the list of tuners with existing programs and the latter’s Gigante kit for the SUV appears to have all the tools to be worth the look, that is if you’re looking to get more out of the Bentayga than what it already has. Continue after the jump to read more about the Bentley BentaygaGigante” by DMC.
