" (July 2014 interview with the Ledger-Enquirer ) 5. "The requirement to adapt quickly to unforeseen conditions means that commanders will need additional forces and resources that can be committed with little notice. For efficiency in all forms of warfare, including counterinsurgency, means barely winning. And in war, barely winning can be an ugly proposition." (Winter 2009 article penned by McMaster in World Affairs ) 6. "Some problems in the world are not bullet-izable." (2010 quote given to the New York Times ) 7. "There is a tendency in the United States to confuse the study of war and warfare with militarism. Thinking clearly about the problem of war and warfare, however, is both an unfortunate necessity and the best way to prevent it." (Veteran's Day speech, 2014) 8. "As previous generations defeated Nazi fascism, Japanese imperialism, and communist totalitarianism and oppression, we will defeat these enemies who cynically use a perverted interpretation of religion to incite hatred and violence.

I was the opposite. I was proud to a be a woman, and it didnt fit well in that culture. Lackluster enthusiasm from sports fans, she said, deepened her discontent with the sport. Nobody cares about the WNBA, she said. They give away tickets and people dont come to the game. Among those to refute Wiggins claims was San Antonio Stars small forward Monique Currie . In a Feb. 21 blog , Currie said shed never witnessed the kind of bullying that Wiggins had described in her interview. This does not mean it did not happen but Im proud to be apart of a league that supports inclusion and celebrates all players regardless of their race, religion or sexuality, Currie, 33, wrote . Wiggins needs to check her privilege at the door, and not group her very unfortunate personal experiences on an entire group of women.

There’s no evidence Milo has been a predator, and so I do think that is also very important context.” Marlow also suggested the video reemerging was part of a “coordinated hit.” The video, filmed in the summer of 2016, was resurfaced over the weekend by the blog and Twitter account “The Reagan Battalion.” More important context which is very unfortunately, is this does look like a coordinated hit. The problem is the video is a real video with horrible things on it. But it still is unfortunate that it does look like the forces on the left, and some of the Republican establishment and the never-Trump movement perhaps,” Marlow said. “There seems to be growing evidence this was all coordinated to wait for a peak moment when Milo was red hot, coming off his Bill Maher appearance [on HBO], and they sat on this story and hold it for maximum political damage, which is really sort of sickening, which they would keep this from the public if they had it until they tried to wait until they could do the most damage to his career and to Breitbart … so it is a political war out there, but the bottom line is the video speaks for itself and it says something very terrible.

Granted, its the Roadster model that just broke cover last week, but the coupe is nothing to sneeze at either given that its already sold out. More importantly, Toronto hosted the global debut of the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 hypercar. Built in cooperation with Red Bull Racing, the AM-RB 001 promises to revolutionize the supercar market through it state-of-the-art, F1- based technology and 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. Sure, the unit on display is still some sort of prototype and the drivetrain is likely missing, but its almost shocking that Aston Martin chose to introduce it in Canada. It goes to show that car events can be full of surprises. And, while Chicago was of the unfortunate variety due to its large number of near standard cars dubbed as special edition, Toronto is a show worth traveling for. Photo Credit: Andrew Clement

Jordan Katsianis 21 Feb 2017 The Chevrolet Camaro has just given the double tonne a go, attempting a 200mph top speed run at a high-speed proving ground in Germany. In its latest and most aggressive ZL1 form, the 641bhp Camaro can now officially claim that it ‘nearly’ got there, with an averaged top speed of 198mph. Watch us hit 200mph in a Porsche 911R The unfortunate fact is that despite the ZL1 hitting 202.3 mph at one point during the test, in order to officially claim a top speed, it must be averaged from another run in the opposite direction. That second top speed run halted at 193.3 mph resulting in the ZL1 not being able to claim the magical 200 mph watermark. Image 12 of 13 Image 12 of 13 The ZL1 itself is Chevrolet’s current flagship Camaro. Donning the full-fat LT4 6.2-litre supercharged V8, the 641hp super coupe is based on the new, smaller Camaro that Chevrolet released last year.

"It's huge," Fowler told Saxon. "Especially anytime you're unable to see family, it's unfortunate." Predictably, because God forbid anyone have a rational discussion about these things anymore, Fowler was flooded with all sorts of social media reaction. Some of it was supportive, but much of it was ugly and nasty. Talk about taking the high road. Fowler couldn't have handled it better with these three tweets: "The question was asked with empathy toward my family," Fowler says. "How does it affect your family? Yeah, my wife is Iranian. "People are going to be people. You've got to roll with it." Fowler thinks a lot of the nasty reaction came from people simply reading headlines on the Internet without understanding the context ("Cardinals' Dexter Fowler whose wife is from Iran weighs in on Trump's travel ban" read the online headline on USA Today 's site , for example).

The “White House Transnational Rogue CIA” had convinced them that subliminal programming and narrative network propaganda kept the people under control. After watching the fleecing of the world by the Bush Oil Cartel and the “Unquestioned Supreme Rule” of King Obama, Hillary and Wild Bill got sloppy and thought they could grab what they wanted and the warlord banker controlled legacy media would ignore their crimes and cover their tracks. Unfortunate for them, patriotic Americans noticed and called out the Emperor’s New Clothes syndrome and wrote books and articles, made movies and videos exposing their crimes. Obama’s personal history did not stay hidden and the old CIA trick of sealing files for “National Securityreasons doesnt wash. Key Point: Trump can unseal those records and reveal Barry Soetoro for who he is – a CIA indoctrinated traitor who has committed numerous crimes against America.

Junk science is presented as science but cherry-picks data to support a specific but unstated agendaan agenda that requires downplaying or overlooking conflicting data. One common example of junk science is the approval of new medications by the FDA. If you actually dig into Phase III data, you may well find that the benefits of the new wonder-drug are barely above statistical chance, and the potential interactions with commonly prescribed (or imbibed) drugs are ignored. This is how we end up with medications with an unfortunate side-effect: death from misadventure, addiction, in combination with other commonly prescribed meds, etc. (For more junk science, check out how meds going off-patent magically get FDA approval for additional and immensely profitable patent protection.) Junk food is now so ubiquitous we lose sight of its core qualities: it is food in the sense of being digestible, but it is harmful above very small, occasional doses.

Our region is facing a very serious threat of extremism, of violence. And Iran has been, from the very beginning. We didn't change sides. We were, from the very beginning, on the side of those who were fighting these terrorists and extremist organizations. And we continue to be on the side of the government of Iraq, the regional government of Kurdistan, and the government of Afghanistan, as they continue to fight these menaces. ANN CURRY: Let's address one of the fears that arose before Congress on Tuesday. Netanyahu strongly suggested that Iran has genocidal ambitions against the Jewish people, saying, Iran's regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazis were a Jewish problem. What is your response to that? JAVAD ZARIF: Well, it is unfortunate that Mr. Netanyahu now totally distorts realities of today.

Even including the 24 free throws they attempted in last week's double-overtime loss to Virginia Tech, UVA has averaged just 9.4 free-throw attempts in its eight losses. In the OT loss to Pittsburgh in January, the Wahoos attempted five freebies while allowing a season-high 28 attempts. It's an unfortunate side effect of their slow tempo, but the lack of trips to the free-throw line seems to be killing the Cavaliers lately, as they have scored 71 regulation points or fewer in 10 consecutive games. Their free-throw rate has consistently been low under Tony Bennett, but this is significantly worse than in any previous season . With four games left to play, Virginia has already suffered more ACC regular-season losses (six) than in any of the previous three years. The Cavaliers are still in great shape for a top-four seed in the NCAA tournament, but their dreams of competing for the ACC title are dead and buried.

Safia Ahmed tweeted to Schwartz that Somalia does not need to import slogans. Twitter user Hassan Abdi expressed his displeasure in a more blunt form, saying the ambassador had a “disgusting sense of humor.” Others thought the timing for such a message was inappropriate because of Trump’s recent immigration travel ban that affected seven Muslim-majority nations, including Somalia. Joshua Busby, an associate professor of public affairs at the University of Texas-Austin, tweeted the exchange was “embarrassing.” Laura Hammond, a scholar at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) University of London, tweeted that she had mixed feelings about the exchange, saying the sentiment behind the gift was OK, but the association with Trump’s platform was unfortunate. Others were somewhat kinder. Mohamed Ali tweeted that he hoped the intentions were different that many others had thought and pleaded with others on Twitter that the ambassador’s tweet should not be taken out of context.

“We will investigate it (the Pakistani list), and if there is a need for more evidence and documents we will ask for it. But we also handed over a number of lists with enough evidences and documents to Pakistan and we hope they will also sincerely take action on them,” asserted General Shaheem. He also criticized Pakistan for unilaterally sealing border crossings with Afghanistan following recent militant attacks, calling the action against “all diplomatic norms and unfortunate.” The Afghan general also alleged that on Friday alone Pakistani troops fired about 200 shells into a border district of eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar. He did not say whether the firing caused any damage. Mutual terrorism allegations have plunged relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan to new lows in recent months. The latest round of a "war of words" is likely to present challenges to efforts to improve ties.

Personally I’d like to turn the Senate on and leave it open, 24-7, until we get this done. Seriously. And there are several of us pushing for that,” Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) said. “It’s unfortunate we’ve got a recess week. Several of us would love to stay here and get this done. You had a weekend a couple of weekends ago that we wanted to stay here.” A spokeswoman for freshman Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) confirmed that he “fully supports working late nights and weekends to move the Republican agenda as fast as possible.” At least a half-dozen senators were pushing the effort, though several asked not to be named to avoid provoking a fight with Senate leaders. Republicans — including Trump — are furious that Democrats have strung out debate on a series of Trump’s nominees for as long as they can, occasionally letting through less controversial figures like Small Business Administration chief Linda McMahon or Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin.
