If you arent sure where to point it, ask your Web host to help you. When you point your domain name to your host, you tell a user’s Web browser where they can find your site. Note that it takes sometimes up to 72 hours for these changes to take effect. Usually, it’s a smaller amount of time, but users who access your site can still get the parked page until your changes replicate across the Internet. 3.

Weak-kneed Republicans are starting to stammer, talk of delay and say we can't repeal all of Obamacare. One GOP plan even keeps the Obamacare taxes. Another GOP plan says to blue states: "If you like Obamacare, you can keep it!" and red states will pay for it. Other GOP plans want to keep Obamacare subsidies but rename them refundable tax credits.

At some point you've probably flown into John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York (JFK) . Or Ronald Reagan National in Washington D.C. (DCA) . Or even Bob Hope Airport, more commonly known as Burbank (BUR). But have you ever flown to Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (BOM) in Mumbai ? If a proposal currently under consideration in India becomes official policy, you might never make it to Shivaji, or Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) in Delhi or any other airport in the country named after a person. That's because according to the Indian Express , the government is deliberating whether to rename all existing airports in the country — as well as future airports — after cities instead of personalities. The problem with naming airports after people appears to be twofold. First, airports in India are sometimes co-owned by separate state authorities and entities who can't agree on which person should receive the honor of having an airport named after him or her.

In the 17th century, Belgium was under Spanish rule, which makes them a likely early hotbed for potato recipes. Belgian historian Jo Gerard specifically reports a family story dating back to 1680 which holds that in the winter, when peasants in the Meuse Valley didn't have fish for their usual fish-fry, they would cut potatoes into the shape of fish and fry them instead. But if that's the case, French appropriation of the dish was certainly cemented by 1802, when Thomas Jefferson served potatoes fried "in the French manner" at a state dinner. This began a long tradition of fast food eaters in the White House that now includes Bill Clinton and Donald Trump. During the Iraq War, when Republican Congressmen in a fit of patriotic stupidity pushed to rename French fries as "freedom fries" on cafeteria menus, the French embassy protested to The New York Times that this was misguided, because the dish is Belgian anyway.

Yale University announced Saturday that it will rename the Calhoun College residence hall a decision that follows over a year of protests calling for the removal of the name of John C. Calhoun, a Yale alumnus who called slavery a positive good. Yale's Board of Trustees initially voted in April to keep the name. At the time, Yale President Peter Salovey voiced concerns that removing it would mean masking history. But the trustees reversed their decision on Friday, the Hartford Courant reported. I made the decision because I think it is the right thing to do on principle, Salovey said in a phone interview with reporters Saturday morning, according to the Courant . Judging Calhoun's principles and legacy as an ardent supporter of slavery as a positive good are at odds with the values of this university.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the city of Charlottesville, Va., city council has voted to remove an imposing statue of Robert E. Lee (and the horse he never rode in on) from Lee Park, and to rename and redesign the park. The statue of this non-Charlottesvillian had been put up in a whites-only park during the 1920s at the whim of an extremely wealthy and racist individual. So, for a representative government to vote, following a very public deliberative process with voluminous and diverse input from city residents is if nothing else a step toward democracy. I think it's much more as well. There are two issues at stake here, neither of them dead issues from the past. One is race. The other is war. Following the vote of City Council, two Republican candidates for governor Corey Stewart and Denver Riggleman declared their outrage.
