Ellison, a Muslim, has also faced a smear campaign led by Haim Saban, a major Jewish Democratic donor, who has called Ellison an “anti Semite” and warned that he “would be a disaster for the relationship between the Jewish community and the Democratic Party.” Ellison has been attacked for his prior positive remarks about the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan, a charge that was also made against Obama early in his career, a precursor to an Islamophobic campaign that would dog Obama throughout his presidency. (In a debate, Hillary Clinton criticized Obama for “denouncing” Farrakhan but not “rejecting” him. “I reject and denounce,” Obama replied.).

BOLLINGER: Yes. I mean, this is often race is a way to get racial and ethnic diversity without having to take it into account. And there’s a very simple answer to this, which is all universities want low income students and to make sure there’s opportunity for access to higher education, but we also want racial and ethnic diversity.

Global scale exponential impact is going to be part of life in Anthropocene. Technology is an essential component of the transformation to a sustainable society and certainly we need to get on exponential curves for renewable energy, food security, disaster risk reduction and poverty alleviation. This is why Singularity University is so important.

Open in new tabConclusion Analysis shows that statistically significant hemodynamic changes do occur post PED deployment, as determined by differences in the contrast transit time post PED in the distal intracranial circulation. These hemodynamic changes might be more pronounced in large and giant aneurysms. The mechanism for this is not clear, yet hemodynamic changes affecting especially the vasculature distal of the PED might shed a light at the patho physiology of the delayed parenchymal hemorrhage..

People fail out of ivy league schools. Go to a school you love, not one that has the highest ROI. Don forget the collegiate experience is an integral component of your “return.” If you don choose a school that works for who you are, you won do nearly as well as you could.

“The most clear, decisive and understandable thing we can do is to repeal the statue and repeal it promptly. Once that is done we have a foundation and a beginning to repair the state’s image. Reparing the state’s image will entail putting new provisions into the law to make clear that everyone in Indiana is treated fairly and equally,” Democratic House Minority Leader Scott Pelath said in a press conference later Tuesday.

Laughing the whole time. I try to explain to him how stupid he is for playing with guns like that. I tell him the 1 rule of gun safety is to always assume it loaded and never point it at anything you not willing to kill. Unfortunately, all cotton fabrics are not created equal. It is important to choose cotton sheets which have been finished with fuzz singeing to prevent pilling, and mercerized to increase the strength of the fabric. In regard to yarn ply, the best cotton is woven with one ply yarn, which is a long staple (this indicates the yarn is in very long strands).

Body length: 10 32 inches.4: Fluffy Angora Rabbit or Imported RabbitThe Fluffy Angora rabbit is a variety of domestic rabbit bred originated in Turkish port called Angora, the land of Angora cat and Angora goat. It has long, soft wool and this rabbit are very soft to the touch. They were bought in France by a sailor in around 1723.

And he disagreed with the notion that Rasoul could be considered just another guest.”If his picture and name and title are there [in ads for the event], there’s a pretty good case that that constitutes soliciting,” Marston said.Together Virginia is a new PAC created by Stacy Snyder, an Alexandria ceramics artist who grew up in Blacksburg and is looking for ways to build bridges between the state’s deep blue urban areas and its bright red rural regions.It is a theme that Rasoul often hits upon. In 2016, he scolded fellow Democrats for losing touch with the white, rural and working class voters who propelled Donald Trump to the White House.[Can Virginia’s only Muslim legislator help Democrats connect with Trump voters?]”I wanted to support a very nice woman who’s got this little PAC,” Rasoul said. “She’s doing the urban rural divide, which I think is great.”Headlining the event with Rasoul was Jason Kander, a Democrat and former Missouri secretary of state who speaks to Democratic groups about how to pitch progressive values in red states.”Proceeds will be used to help initiatives in VA like Democratic Promise!” the group wrote on Twitter.

This was a bit out of character for a president who believes in federal power and what it can achieve. Federalism and the law, though, left it to local and state officials to force an evacuation and manage it. They failed on both counts and made the bad situation in New Orleans breathtakingly worse..

The North Koreans want what we might call a “complete, verifiable, irreversible guarantee” that Kim’s regime will survive and prosper. As an Asian diplomat told me this week, this guarantee will become real only when thousands of Americans are living and working in Pyongyang. This, too, would mean a very different North Korea..

The other ventures were starting to stray too far from Google core mission (and rarely made money), so they decided to separate them to make clear where Google is and isn profitable. And to give Google original founders broader jobs of managing the many Alphabet companies instead of managing the day to day at Google. That role was at that time passed to current Google CEO, Sundar Pichai..

Tipster Anthony Reed rides the Red Line just about every day sometimes more than once and wants to know why the subway station by his Dorchester home seems to have a split personality. On the side leading to the JFK/UMass station that faces the University of Massachusetts atBoston campus, the MBTA parking lot and bus waiting areas appear clean, safe, and well lighted. But the other side of the station, which brings riders to a densely populated part of Dorchester by Columbia Road and Dorchester Avenue, feels dark, isolated, and more than a little spooky, he says..

This is really good advice. I have thought about that. I guess being out in the field and seeing 8 other fleets within approx. The American Bar Association, which avoids political issues whenever possible, blasted the policy as well. In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the ABA’s president flatly rebuked his claim that the law requires the administration to carry out this policy, and declared, “The systemic practice of separating parents and children is antithetical to our values as a country, appears to violate longstanding precedent protecting rights to family integrity, burdens the federal criminal justice and immigration adjudication systems, and increases costs to the government. Attorneysalso vilified the policy.

Bush is scheduled to keynote a fundraiser in Irving, Texas, for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, a group that trains people in the United States, Israel, and around the world to convince Jews to accept Jesus as the Messiah. The organization’s goal: to ‘restore’ Israel and the Jews and bring about about the second coming of Christ. Messianic Jews have long been controversial for Jews of all major denominations, who object to their proselytizing efforts and their message that salvation by Jesus is consistent with Jewish theology.” [Mother Jones].

My husband is an engineer, and his master thesis was designing the control system (ie steering and how the vehicle stays on the road) for an autonomous vehicle. He was part of a research team that also designed adaptive cruise control and operation sensors. He been trying to get me to let him put his controller on our cars for a decade.

When we last checked in on the effort to close the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, there were some encouraging signs of progress. We were reminded yesterday that movement will remain, at best, incremental. Soil. Much more concentrated on CICO (and just accepting that I be hungry a lot) than any strict diet plan. And it seems to be working. I have another 35 45 lbs to go, but if I can keep up the momentum and if this is indeed a paradigm change on how I look at food, I think it might be achievable this time..

Two other phrases in our early reports are interesting to think about now: to death and and killed. Gliniewicz was shot. He did die. As we first reported last fall, there are many species of whales and one by one they’re coming off the endangered species list. Whale hunting is rare today but there is still a place on the high seas where there’s a battle to eliminate the last vestiges of whaling. There we found a man who has risked life and limb to end any threat to whales once and for all..

Napolitano isn’t expected to announce a decision until late February. But many observers expect DHS will shrink the program back to the original 10 metro areas. That would leave Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, Miami and Seattle among those left out in the cold, with smaller metro areas already feeling the sting of budget cuts in areas such as bioterrorism preparedness..

The decision to shut down the investigation that led to the prosecution of a dozen people connected to Gray’s campaign or to the once powerful city contractor, Jeffrey E. Attorney’s Office. In March 2014, it essentially forecast a prosecution of Gray by accusing him of having detailed knowledge of a corrupt, off the books campaign fund.

350 interviews: While she did not keep up with the frantic media pace Donald Trump set for much of the election season, Clinton cannot be said to have ducked public questioning. She had indeed done 350 interviews in the first seven months of the year. Mostly TV: Clinton favored television above all other forms of media.

They are in some respects like “insane” criminals who believe that God or the devil told them to do it. Because they are not deterrable, the argument for taking preventive measures against them becomes more compelling. In the classic situation, the harm may be a single murder or robbery that, tragic as it may be to its victim and his family, the society is able to absorb.

At every port we arrived at, the three layers cranes, trucks, containers seemed fundamentally the same, standardised with only the occasional exception. The Taiwanese port of Kaohsiung uses instead of trucks oddly top heavy looking skeletal machines that bounce along on huge moon buggy tyres. They swarm endlessly like busy robots, their blue or yellow frames smeared in grease and grime, discharging black clouds of diesel smog..

Faced with such inertia at the top, legalization advocates may face a long slog ahead. Moreover, as they cultivate unusual cross border alliances, activists may confront a significant obstacle in the counter narcotics establishment. If the ban on marijuana is lifted, then certain agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration would lose a lot of their budget and overall legitimacy.

Consensus in Newton is a rarity these days, as the city undertakes construction of the most expensive high school in the state and faces a $12 million override. City officials have been criticized for the construction of the $197 million high school by parents, state officials, and a fiscal watchdog group that said it has made Newton a “poster child” for suburban excess. The override vote, set for May 20, remains another contentious issue that has pitted a faction that wants improved funding for city services against residents who say local taxes are already too high..

If my mother name changes one day, i don care how much you believe human memory is shitty i will NOT accept that i am misremembering. And like my mother name, i am absolutely 100% certain that Mona Lisa was not smiling, and Australia was not there! we do misremember things in our life, a lot of things, but when we do, we accept that, that is not a ME! ME is about things that we did know and they are changed. For example, until 18, i always thought New Zealand was a European country! That is an embarrassing mistake and i admit that.

This system was a digital one that used frequency bands around 900 MHz (GSM) and later 1800 MHz (DCS). This technology made compression of speech possible and therefore transmission to and from several mobile phones using the same channel could be applied. This type of transmission is called TDMA.

Some of the messaging surrounding African Americans at the convention is inextricably connected to Trump’s crime rhetoric, as well. In a Monday night speech, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke declared that “blue lives matter,” then sharply criticized the Black Lives Matter movement: “So many of the actions of the Occupy movement and Black Lives Matter transcend peaceful protest, and violates the code of conduct we rely on. I call it anarchy.” That same night, Trump accused the movement of “essentially calling death to police.” (The Black Lives Matter website explains that the group “is not an anti police officer movement” and “is not trying to make the world more unsafe for police officers; it hopes to make police officers less of a threat to communities of color.”)..

“In his 40 years in the military, Kelly developed a reputation for bluntness that won him the respect of his fellow Marines and sometimes grated on senior officials in the Obama administration,” Greg Jaffe and Andrew deGrandpre wrote in a profile over the weekend. Troops in Iraq and lost a son in Afghanistan in 2010 to a Taliban bomb. But the most relevant experience he will bring to the chief of staff job is a tour as senior military adviser to Defense Secretaries Robert M.

It IS shitty business and, theoretically, they will see the ramifications in less sales which was what i was getting at in my post. Assuming that the gaming consumer market is fairly inelastic, if we choose to financially show our backing to firms like this one, less money will go to EA, and thus they will be reprimanded for shitty customer value. (It’s not even close to perfectly inelastic, and there are many other factors that come into play given specific titles such as IP recognition like we saw with the Star Wars games).

So we graduated from going to the see the Bad Brains to going to the Roxy. Russell was their manager; I was friends with Russell and Lyor. And I met Captain Pissy, he started Sean Carasov, rest in peace my man. New ideas, no matter how old they are, knock out the foundation of our reality and force us to construct a whole new reality. This is hard work and scary, and it is why new ideas, no matter how important, are first met with resistance. It’s why the Chinese resisted Western ways for thousands of years, and why it took us about a thousand years to finally discover Chinese food..

A: I think in economic times where people are concerned about losing a job or making ends meet with their current income, they’re looking for other options, and they look to direct selling for those options. Direct selling is very flexible, they can do it while they’re looking for a job, around a full time job, or they can do it part time. Most direct sellers work less than 10 hours a week at their business.

People have tried and failed. A Moroccan man living in Fairfax was arrested in 2012 and charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction against federal property. At one point he considered bombing Bistro Bis on Capitol Hill or the restaurant Aria on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, according to Washingtonian magazine..

Over the millennia we have constructed a carefully balanced jurisprudence of after the fact reaction to harms, especially crimes. In this book, I will propose some generalizations about pre emption in its varying contexts and manifestations and suggest how a democratic society might begin to construct a jurisprudence a philosophy of pre emption. Put another way, I will try to articulate the factors that should go into any process of striking the proper balances between the virtues and vices of early intervention, especially when the intervention involves the use of force, power, compulsion, censorship, incarceration and death, and most especially when the failure to intervene may also involve comparable threats, dangers and harms.

Southwest AirlinesSouthwest Airlines allows each passenger a single carry on measuring up to 24 inches by 16 inches by 10 inches and a small personal item the fits under the seat in front of you. The personal item can measure up to 18.5 inches by 13.5 inches by 8.5 inches. If you’re traveling with a pet in a small carrier that fits under the seat in front of you, the airline counts it as either your carry on or your personal item..

To the parishioners of St. Peter’s in Steubenville, this history is beside the point. Their point is that government alone can and will never nourish the proper regard for the sanctity of life, the dignity of humanity and the role of faith in creating moral character that Americans need to govern themselves in a democracy..

But don’t be fooled into thinking that the mayor has somehow lost control or tired of his job. He still maintains a full schedule of appearances before every community group under the sun this is a mayor who not only never stopped campaigning, but runs his administration like the manager of a just in time retail stocking operation, pushing agency heads to get stuff done almost as soon as the mayor reports back from the neighborhood meetings where residents make demands.Council members Brown can certainly have some fun lunging at the mayor’s slightly tarnished armor. But they’re not going to pierce it at least not anytime soon..

I believe we need to have standards. I also believe that I can only control one thing in this world and that is myself. I am also responsible for one thing in this world and that is myself. Realistically, this one was already lost for Republicans. But any lingering hopes were dashed when Kirk made a damaging, puzzling jab at his opponent, Democratic Rep. Tammy Duckworth, in their debate last week, calling into question the wounded Iraq veteran’s heritage and military service.

Which is why it’s confusing to check the year’s attendance figures. Cleveland ranked 28 out of 30 teams during the regular season. Progressive seats a little over 35,000. The CDC supports such a curricula approach, but indicates that it is not enough. In addition, schools need to (a) have explicit tobacco control policies, (b) have appropriate teacher training, (c) involve parents and families, (d) support cessation for teachers, staff and students and (e) regularly evaluate performance. The only way schools can reach all of the above goals (especially with limited budgets) is a comprehensive approach in which preventing initiation is a high public priority and significant progress has been made on denormalising tobacco use in the broader community.

During experiments at the Bimini Biological Research Station in the Bahamas, researchers Eric Stroud and Michael Hermann, with the company SharkDefense, dropped a small magnet in the water beside a shark. The presence of the magnet elicited a distinct reaction from the fish they darted away from it. To determine the strength of this repugnant force, Stroud and Herrmann held sharks on their backs, inducing a condition called tonic immobility, or a temporary paralysis that naturally occurs when the fish lay in that position.

At the same time, a minuscule portion of the budget goes toward the students who need accelerated curriculum. How about a few aides for them? I also don’t understand why we need a psychologist and a social worker in every school. At salaries of $80k + per year, plus benefits that bring the total cost above $100k, these positions should be reduced substantially so that each covers two to three schools on a rotating basis.

Note that I never mentioned fighting the inmates? I did reference gas/tasers, but the perception of prisoners fighting guards is not overblown, but it is more rare than you might think. In the last 4 years, I think I wrestled with 6 8 inmates, and every one of those has been someone coming into the jail, still upset about being arrested (for perspective, our jail handles 6,000 inmates a year). Once the inmate is in jail, DOs have what POs don time.

The accusations come as the Red Sox are attempting to hold off the fast closing Yankees in a battle for the American League East title. After winning three of four from Boston last week at Yankee Stadium, then winning Monday at Baltimore, the Yankees, who also lead the AL wild card race, moved to within 2 1/2 games of the Red Sox entering Tuesday night’s games. The teams do not play each other again this season..

What Happened to Primatene Mist?Primatene Mist stopped being sold on December 31, 2011. Why are they no longer available on our store shelves? The FDA has banned all asthma inhalers which contain chloroflouorocarbons (CFCs). This ban only affects Primatene Mist because it is the only asthma inhaler that has been approved by the FDA to be sold without a prescription.

In other words, with an eco mind, it’s not possible to know what’s possible. And that’s where honest hope lives, in the uncertainty in which there is only one certainty: That what we do, however big, however small, ripples forth in ways we’ll never know. And, unbeknownst to us, one may even create a cascade..

In 1 3 years time when GGG wants to retire, he can let Canelo know he ready for his retirement fight, and they do the rematch so Canelo can pay $25 million for a win against GGG on his record. GGG loses nothing but a loss on his record in his last fight before retirement. If I GGG, that sounds fine to me.

And isn it better to have both? the discussion and the checklist to use when you just gone through the trauma of losing a spouse and may not have full recollection of EVERYTHING you need to address. The OP indicated he had these discussions, and the letter probably provides some structure (and ability to co collaborate on additions/revisions) during that discussion. I think too too many people are trying to turn this into some type of put down on the OP wife by the OP.

She wrote in the description: day before Bailey still had no feeling or movement in her legs. I want to thank everyone for their prayers, blessings, and support through this. You’ll get more comfortable responding to this as you DM more and more, but the most helpful approach for me when I first started was just take the situation one step at a time.

President Trump campaigned last year defending Americans’ Second Amendment rights and against Hillary Clinton’s agenda to tighten gun laws. Earlier this year, with the help of the GOP controlled Congress, Mr. Trump reversed a rule finalized in the last days of the Obama administration that was part of the implementation of a 2008 law that Congress passed in the aftermath of the Virginia Tech shooting.

I actually agree with the driver more than I thought I would. He could have gave him a little more time to move over before passing him, but don ride your bike in the middle of the road. I hate bicyclist who think it the Tour de France and ride in the middle of the road blocking huge lines of traffic.

Earlier this month, that debate got a lot more urgent in Seattle, when a young homeless man who was camping along Interstate 5 was killed by a car that careened off the roadway. A couple of hours after the death, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray visited the site to view the wrecked tent and address what he calls the city’s “homelessness crisis.”The city has tried being more aggressive about clearing out illegal campsites, especially after five people were shot and two of them killed in a notorious camp called “the Jungle,” back in January. But the city’s “sweeps,” as they were called, quickly ran into an angry backlash from homeless activists and civil rights groups..

In the end, people familiar with the transition said, the choice came down to Kelly and Rep. Michael McCaul (R Tex.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. McCaul was considered an early favorite, but his chances were hurt by opposition from some conservatives who found him insufficiently tough on border security, the people said..

Tens of thousands paid their respects in person, tearfully laying flowers at the gates of Kensington Palace in her memory. Millions more watched her funeral, which was televised around the globe. (30 photos total). Even a market based solution, of eliminating homelessness by giving everyone the means to afford to own a residence also requires a multi faceted approach, such as controls however one economic ideology presumes wages can be induced to rise to a level that would make homes afforable .on top of however one economic ideology presumes home pricing and rent rates can be induced to set to a level that would make homes affordable .on top of however one economic ideology presumes one might eliminate unemployment (so that everyone has jobs, which means everyone gets money, which means everyone gets to buy and own a home).but whether we think this can be handled directly, or via the Invisible Hand of the Free Market, it almost tautological to suggest that in a society where there are more people than there are homes, that there are going to be people who will both A. Disrespect the notion of “private property” out of sheer necessity, and B. Seek to extract rents from property, also out of sheer necessity (in order to afford all the other stuff that one needs besides shelter)..
