It's not too often that I see Hulu app news pop up here, but this update is important. The popular TV (and more) streaming app is finally getting profiles, à la Netflix. The obvious benefit here is that individual users can have their own watch histories, interests, and recommendations without interfering with each other. Here's the official note on it: Profiles: Creating individual profiles enables you to keep track of all of your favorite shows and movies regardless of what other viewers in your household watch.

In terms of Trumps relationship with Putin, in a lot of American media coverage, hes in the pocket of Putin or being played by Putin. How is that relationship depicted in domestic Russian media? Its like weather in England, in that it changes every 15 seconds. All the Russian officials are very vocally denying, saying, No, we dont have any control over Trump, or, No, we werent trying to influence the elections. Theyre saying that, and all the pundits are like, Oh, but we could have influenced the elections, and we are indeed a superpower if we could do that. What are some major things you think that American media get wrong or dont understand in their coverage? Were getting to my favorite bit. Ive been seeing a lot in my Facebook feed among my Russian colleagues, especially those critical of Putin, who have been really dismayed about the quality of coverage that Russia has been getting recently.

Humphrey played into the liberal caricature of unfeeling, unimaginative businessmen when he offered an opinion of Ernest Hemingways The Old Man and the Sea: Why should anyone be interested in some old man who was a failure and never amounted to anything, anyway? CEOs accustomed to speaking their minds usually learn that the political echo chamber is a different, often more brutal place than the narrower world of business. A favorite President of Ronald Reagans, Calvin Coolidge, is perhaps best remembered for his remark that the chief business of the American people is business, which liberals have long scorned as presidential Babbittry while conservatives have celebrated Coolidges small-government common sense and fiscal discipline. In truth Coolidge was making a more complicated point, one that bears consideration in our own time.

Look for a converter with OCR (optical character recognition) if you do have flattened documents. Have we missed your favorite PDF to Word converter? Let us know in the comments below. Another online converter, Nitro did a good job with our magazine page, but it's a shame you have to wait for the document to be emailed rather than downloading it directly from the site 1. Nitro PDF to Word Converter Nitro PDF to Word Converter offers solid PDF conversion with just a couple of niggles You'd be forgiven for missing the free online version of Nitro PDF to Word Converter when visiting its site, given that it's so smothered in adverts for its paid-for desktop app, but this is a perfectly competent free tool no OCR though, sadly suitable for occasional use. Upload your PDF, give it an email address to send the results to, and it'll transform that PDF into Word, Excel or Powerpoint files and vice versa; we wouldn't recommend using the Excel converter for mission-critical work, however.

I have heard you say those are your beliefs many times. It is easy to deny man's impact on climate change until you read the science. I have poured over all five of the IPCC assessments (definitely not my favorite nighttime read!) in order to arm myself with knowledge from scientific experts all over the world in order to understand what the arguments might be that this is purely cyclical. There are no arguments. I am not a scientist. I am a mom, an artist, a former public school music teacher, and an American citizen. Science was never my favorite subject, however my nine-year-old lives and breathes science. He would rather be face-down in the ocean observing the smallest of creatures than anywhere else. He and his little developing brain gives me hope that he will play a role in the future of conservation and environmentalism. However, I fear that by the time he is old enough to understand the damage that has already been done, his generation will be forced to bear the weight of the decisions we adults are making right now.

Weve got some sad news concerning one of your favorite high school shopping hangouts. Bloomberg reports that BCBG Max Azria Group will close some of its 570 stores, which includes 175 locations in the United States (its not closing all of its stores, contrary to certain reports). The design house, founded in 1989 by designer Max Azria, will move its focus to e-commerce, licensing and boutiques. Like so many other great brands, BCBG has been negatively impacted by the growth in online sales and shifts in customer shopping patterns and, as a result, has too large a physical retail footprint, BCBG spokesperson Seth Lubove said in an emailed statement to The Huffington Post. This realignment will include a reduced focus on free-standing brick-and-mortar stores, concentrating more on in-store boutiques and, increasing our online presence as well as licensing.
