Common Education Core = Dumbing Down 5. The education system …is yet another dumbing-down agenda. As I have been saying for some time now, the education system ultimately serves to program and brainwash young people to fit into the corporate employment agenda like cogs in the wheels rather than treat them as individuals with their individual needs... see this. We know that the state education system is now giving children as young as 5 years old exam-based curricula. I suspect that the dark hidden motive behind this is to stop children from playing and developing their creative ability: The ruling elite dont want young people to grow up and be very creative because they perceive creativity as a threat. Creativity can mean getting in touch with one’s consciousness which if willfully intended can manifest a reality totally different to the current imprisoning status quo.

Many Republicans are more hesitant, worried that the enormous cost of a large-scale infrastructure plan could balloon the budget deficit. The new Senate Democratic leader, Charles Schumer of New York, also cautioned the president-elect. “We’ll fight him tooth and nail when he appeals to the baser instincts that diminish America and its greatness,” Schumer said. Some Democrats appear eager to take on Trump where they can, including former presidential contender Bernie Sanders. “When we stand together, Donald Trump and nobody, nobody is going to stop us! Let’s go forward together! Thank you all!” Sanders told Democrats at a post-election rally outside the U.S. Capitol. Why Unity Matters How Trump chooses to deal with the challenge of unifying the country is important, according to Brookings Institution analyst John Hudak. “It is incumbent upon him to start building bridges to the nearly 70 million Americans who voted for someone else.

As for rolling off of tables, it's supposedly using a tried-and-tested method - simply popping a clip onto the side, which will stop it rolling and also let it hang onto a shirt pocket. It brings to mind when NASA tried to invent a gravity-defying ink pen for its astronauts, while the Soviet cosmonauts simply brought pencils up to space with them. With the iPad Pro 2 expected to make an appearance in March, don't be surprised if the Apple Pencil 2 shows up then too. Knowing Apple's recent track record when it comes to needless accessories, brace yourself to laugh and/or cry at an "Apple Clip" announcement too... Here's everything you need to know about the iPad Pro 2

Though the health care law left mostly untouched the employer-based system of coverage through which most Americans get their health coverage, the individual market — including the exchanges that provide subsidized coverage to Americans who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid — is struggling, he said. “We’re like the ambulance team that comes on the scene of accident, and there’s carnage everywhere,” he said. “Well, first you stop the bleeding, then you get ’em breathing. You do these things and then you begin to rebuild the system. If you do nothing ... the patient gets worse.”

“In the moment, a week of 18-hour days can feel like an eternity,” said Charlie Anderson, who spent most of the last 10 years working for Obama. “In retrospect, it all just compresses.” Obama aides like to use expressions like “running through the tape” and “turning out the lights.” In fact, the process of winding down the current administration is more incremental than those metaphors imply: the finish line is staggered for staff, and only a bare-bones cadre of high-level counselors will be allowed into the building for Obama’s last hours as president on Friday. The trickle of departures picked up pace in December, and starting the first week in January, assigned departure dates each week sent tranches of employees out the door. The deliberate process gives the General Services Administration time to process the laptops, BlackBerries and security badges delivered to a room designated for “One-Stop Check Out” in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

How will they confront a suddenly awakened, and galvanized, white majority? What’s to stop Trump from doing whatever he wants? Who’s going to pull a coherent new vision together? Worried liberals are watching with trepidation, fearful that Trump is just the beginning of worse to come, desperate for a comeback strategy that can work. What’s clear from interviews with several dozen top Democratic politicians and operatives at all levels, however, is that there is no comeback strategy—just a collection of half-formed ideas, all of them challenged by reality. And for whatever scheme they come up with, Democrats dont even have a flag-carrier. Barack Obama? He doesnt want the job. Hillary Clinton? Too damaged. Bernie Sanders? Too socialist. Joe Biden? Too tied to Obama. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer? Too Washington. Elizabeth Warren? Maybe. And all of them old, old, old.

On January 15, Bahrain carried out its first execution after a more than six-year hiatus. The executions of Shia activists Sami Mushaima, Abbas Jamil Tahir al-Sami’ and Ali Abdulshahid al-Singace came after the Court of Cassation upheld the death penalties given to the trio over allegations of killing a member of Emirati forces in al-Daih in March 2014. The defendants had denied the charges. Meanwhile, a video showing Bahrain using hooligans to suppress dissent has gone viral. Initially released in April 2012, the video shows hooligans ransacking a store while Bahraini security forces look on and even film the incident without trying to stop the raid. Bahrain, home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet, has been rocked by a wave of anti-regime demonstrations since the popular uprising began in the country in February 2011. Scores of people have been killed and hundreds of others wounded or detained amid Manama’s crackdown on dissent and widespread discrimination against the country’s Shia majority.

Image 10 of 13 These updates occur passively without you asking for feedback, interrupting your music, meaning your can stay relatively inconspicuous. I only really chatted to my glasses when in a wide enough open space for me sayingOK Radar, how’s my pace?” not to be misconstrued as trying to initiate conversation with my fellow runners based on a friendly new nickname. The glasses passively detect when you stop and restart running, which is interesting, because it tells you both how long the session was and how long you were moving for, which differentiates in a way that most fitness trackers dontalbeit with a short delay in spotting the transition. Oakley Radar Pace review: In for the long haul But this was just a single race, and that’s not really what the Oakley Radar Pace glasses are all about: the idea is to give anyone (well, anyone with £400 to blow, anyway) their own personal running coach.
