So it could still be on PC and that would make sense to cut that bit off. Close-ups of the top state that the beta is coming to PS4 first. Disappointing, but Activision is super in bed with Sony. So not a shock (also I think Destiny's alpha was PS only and the beta was on PS a week before Xbox joined in). It would seem EuroGamer are tweeting to confirm the leak is not a fake and Bungie devs have tweeted about it and have not debunked it. So... it would appear it's not fake! Damn, looks like today is going to be a big news day for Destiny 2 and I'm about to be internetless at work for the rest of the day :waah:

Johnson noted that the Department of Homeland Security has "been concerned for some time now" about explosives in electronic devices. He mentioned that the United Kingdom is implementing a similar ban, calling the British "good company." Obama's former DHS chief also criticized Trump for his frequent tweeting, calling it one of the president's "unhealthy impulses." "I'm very concerned about the tweets and very concerned about the direction we're taking in a lot of national security areas," he said. Johnson also said he is worried the government is, "when it comes to homeland security, fighting the last war." "We may be responding to the terrorist attack of 10 years ago, as opposed to the next one," Johnson said. "I used to tell my people, Don't respond to the last terrorist attack, prepare for the next one,' and given where we are right now with the current threat environment, we need to focus on home-grown, home-born violent extremism.

Buoyed by their celebrity, the Obamas still attract attention when they’re spotted on the street. But freed from the constraints of the office, their fans are now running into them on vacation, at lunch or outside SoulCycle . And those sightings, captured via iPhone camera and shared on social media, have become fodder for regular coverage in traditional gossip columns, on friendly left-leaning blogs, and in fashion magazines eager to assess the president’s post-White House wardrobe. “Especially in New York, the second that he’s anywhere, people are tweeting and Instagramming and just fanning out about it,” said Mara Siegler, a reporter for Page Six, the New York Post’s famous gossip section. “He was at Upland, and it was just everywhere immediately.” Take one day in late February, when the former president exited a building on Fifth Avenue in New York with a coffee cup in hand.

Enlarge / Really, guys, we're going. (credit: NASA) NASA has an extraordinarily popular Twitter account . With 22.4 million followers, it ranks among the top 60 accounts on all of Twitter. It is the only US government agency to come remotely close to the top 100, which mostly consists of celebrities. It is, therefore, a bastion of science, space, and reason in a sea of reality TV, late night television, and sports stars. During the last several years, one of the NASA Twitter feed's most common hashtags has been #JourneyToMars, representative of the agency's stated goal of sending humans to Mars in the 2030s. The Journey to Mars" had been a frequent talking point for Administrator Charles Bolden and other agency leaders. They talked about the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft as key components of this mission. But on the day Donald Trump became president and Bolden left his post as administrator, NASA has essentially stopped tweeting about the Journey to Mars.

Donald Trump doesnt care much about it,” Alan Dershowitz, professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, said of the Supreme Court confirmation process. “He picked somebody he knew conservatives would like, he wants to win, but we havent seen a lot of tweeting about it. He’s kept out of it. This is the best proof that to the extent Trump stays out of issues, they can work smoothly.” Dershowitz added: If you look generally at Trump’s first 56 days, the more he talks about an issue the more difficult it is for him.” For Trump allies who have been frustrated watching the president distract from pushing the health care bill by tweeting about unsubstantiated wiretapping theories, as well as by bungles like the rollout of the travel ban – the revised version of which has been blocked by federal courts, just as the first one was – the smooth Gorsuch nominating process serves a reminder of how much the White House benefits when it has organizing help from Washington professionals.
