Millwall Football Club bosses have said they are extremely disappointed Leicester City did not raise its concerns about abuse immediately after the clubs' FA Cup match ended on Saturday. As previously reported, Foxes fans have said they were subjected to a barrage of abuse throughout the clash in South London, with missiles including coins and bottles thrown at them. Millwall supporters also invaded the pitch after the match, which their club won 1-0, taunting away fans with...

Far from the well oiled machine described by the President, it is badly out of sync and clearly misfiring. The new National Security Adviser who replaces the disgraced General Mike Flynn will have his hands full and must have the authority to pick his own team, starting with the crucial deputy job. We need to have a regular schedule of Deputy and Principal Committee meetings, which thus far have not been convening. What is said at the UN by Ambassador Nikki Haley, for example, must line up with Presidential tweets and press conferences. The glaring disconnects are becoming extremely noticeable and are discouraging to our closest allies while providing ammunition to anti-U.S. narratives. Second, political operatives like Steve Bannon should not be formal appointees to the Principals Committee. More than one European pointed out that having a purely political voice in that body is not so far from the Soviet system of having a political officer in every security unit remember the commissar onboard the defecting Russian submarine in The Hunt for Red October? Captain Ramius had to eliminate him in order to execute his plan.

The nightmare of their rule is finally ending. However, make no mistake, these people are extremely dangerous, very smart and now literally fighting for their lives. The reason is they know that when the American people find out these thugs have been torturing and killing their children on an industrial scale, the people will demand justice be served, That’s why the battle taking place now inside the Washington DC power structure is so vicious. This Satanic faction created ISIS in order to convince Westerners to hate Islam enough to support a military invasion of Iran. The plan was to steal that nation’s oil, consolidate their control of the Middle East, and set up a world government with its headquarters in Jerusalem, the capital of their planned greater Babylon. This faction includes both Satan worshipping Jews and their brainwashed Christian Zionist servants.

AOC has revealed a pair of new curved gaming monitors which benefit from a three-sides frameless design, along with AMDs FreeSync technology. The two new Agon models are 31.5-inch (AG322QCX) and 27-inch (AG272FCX) in size, with screens that boast a curvature of 1800mm, the most pronounced curve the Agon range has seen yet for the maximum effect in terms of producing an immersive gaming experience. And that immersion is boosted further by the frameless design on three sides meaning all the edges are extremely thin save for the bottom bezel, as you can see from the image above (note that Phillips revealed a monitor which uses this trick last week, as well). These are 16:9 aspect ratio monitors (not ultra-wide or 21:9, as is often the case with larger curved screens) built with VA panels offering a Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution in the case of the smaller model, and 2560 x 1440-pixels for the larger 31.

It doesnt take much to spark a good story. A tall man, a short woman, a setting that’s sterile to the point of soulless, and a couple dozen bananasIt practically writes itself! If you’re slow to recognize the potential in these extremely potent elements (culled from the above video’s opening shot), this free online course on storytelling , part of Khan Academy ’s popular Pixar In A Box series, might help strengthen those slack storytelling muscles. The lessons will hold immense appeal for young Pixar fans, but adults students stand to gain too. Children are naturally confident storytellers . Unfortunately, time can do a number on both fluency and one’s belief in one’s own ability to string together narratives that others will enjoy. The Pixar directors and story artists drafted to serve as instructors for this course are as deft at encouragement as they are at their craft.

That said, Elsweyr would also be an interesting geography change with its dry plains and harsh badlands that the Khajit call home. It would certainly be nice to find out more about the culture of either the Khajit or the Argonians so both of these extremely different settings have an understandable appeal to fans. There is, however, weight to a rumor that Elder Scrolls 6 could be set in Valenwood. Valenwood is the home of the Bosmer and its an area of Tamriel that Bethesda hasnt explored much. The rumor that the game will be set here is based on a reported internal Bethesda memo from all the way back in 2014. In this memo, Bethesda employees were reportedly wanted against using the terms Fallout: Nuka World, Elder Scrolls VI or Project Greenheart. Though it was initially believed to be a fake, Fallout: Nuka World ended up being a big DLC release for Fallout 4 which gives slightly more weight to rumor that Project Greenheart is in fact the codename for the next Elder Scrolls title.

They must be identical for the hack to work: Uh ohh. Clearly, they are not the same. Repeating this experiment multiple times, even with different kinds of IR receivers, I have noticed that the error rate is extremely high and the bit patterns produced are absolutely not repeatable without the carrier. In this case we see two output toggles for every one input toggle. This, I suspect, is an artefact due to the demodulator not being happy with the out-of-band frequencies. Even though there is a strong correlation between the two signals, it is certainly not enough to fool a TV. I've tried pointing this IR LED to the three TV sets I have, none of them even budged. Can An Obstruction Produce Any Bit Pattern? The last thing to test is producing some kind of bit pattern using an obstruction. This is a bit redundant as the last test has shown, low frequency signals produce erroneous data at the receivers output anyways.

They got the results back; the ground squirrels weren't closely related to those on the mainland. Their DNA most closely matched those from the Semidi Islands, about 45 miles away. It seems unlikely to me that they rafted [to Chirikof] or swam there, because it is so isolated, says West. It's well known to be extremely rough sea. It is possible that this little squirrel got there successfully, but it seems far-fetched. Invasive or not? Instead, she says, the ground squirrel might have been introduced by people after all, just not Russians. The most likely hypothesis, she thinks, is that they were carried there by native Alaskans, though for now she can't say for sure. If that is true, then in the eyes of the refuge, says Ebbert, they're invasive—though he is quick to point out that they are far from the most damaging species.

This seems like just the first new step for the growing company. Theyre inviting you to follow along if you can find a Snapbot on the map. Is it worth following back? Lets take a non-expiring view. Price and release date The first thing you should know about Spectacles is that they're hard to come by, launching in pop-up locations around the US. But that should change soon, according to Snaps IPO filing. An adorable-looking yellow Snapbot vending machine dispenses a limited number of glasses in one spot, so you have to get there extremely fast. They cost $129.99 (about 105, AU$169). The bot becomes a lot less adorable when it runs out of glasses and you then have to share an elevator with people, who were in line ahead of you, and are clutching multiple Spectacles in tennis ball-like plastic canisters (thankfully everyone is limited to two).

Also, in this case, since your friend is charging business expenses , there could be tax ramifications and concerns about commingling funds. If you proceed down this road, both of you should double-check your plan with your accountants and keep extremely detailed records, in case the IRS comes asking who paid what and who owes what on his taxes. You also might have to pay an additional fee for adding the authorized user , depending on which credit card you have. Given all these hazards, this is not a path I would recommend for such a substantial amount of money. However, if you've considered all the dangers and still want to proceed, there are a few precautions you can take to protect yourself. Keep in mind that I'm not an attorney and this is not legal advice (trust me, you wouldn't want my legal advice anyway), so if you do this, you're proceeding at your own risk.

Kraft Heinz’s interest was made public at an extremely early stage," Kraft Heinz spokesman Michael Mullen said in a statement. "Our intention was to proceed on a friendly basis, but it was made clear Unilever did not wish to pursue a transaction. It is best to step away early so both companies can focus on their own independent plans to generate value.” Kraft was forced to reveal the details of its bid to the public on Friday to comply with Britain’s takeover rules after stock traders caught wind of the proposed merger. The public withdrawal of its offer means Kraft will be unable to approach Unilever again for another six months, according to UK takeover rules. It would have marked the third biggest takeover in history and the largest acquisition of a UK-based company, according to Thomson Reuters data. The merged company would have $82bn in sales.

Coalition plan for more efficient coal plants could well increase emissions in a sector that is the second most polluting in the developed world The government has indicated it will act to allow the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to finance new coal-fired power plants on the basis that these coal plants have lower emissions than existing coal power plants. While such power plants may have lower emissions than Australia’s ageing and extremely inefficient existing coal plants, they would most likely increase Australia’s emissions rather than decrease them. And this is in a context where Australia’s electricity supply is the second most polluting in the developed world (beaten only by Estonia). Continue reading...
