Fri, 24 Mar 2017 02:27:00 +0000   
President Trump apparently fed up with House Republicans on Thursday night lashed out to say through his aides that the time to find common ground was now, according to The Washington Post.

Ryan from Wisconsin.“Disastrous #Obamacare has led to higher costs & fewer options. It will only continue to get worse! We must #RepealANDReplace. #PassTheBill,” Trump tweeted from his official White House account as the meeting was wrapping up Thursday night.

The United Nations is warning that Uganda is nearing a "breaking point" with almost 3,000 refugees pouring into the country everyday fleeing violence and famine in South Sudan, according to Al Jazeera.

3 Reasons Athletes Should Keep a Food Journal
Thu, 23 Mar 2017 23:17:00 +0000   
The influence that our nutrition and diet play on athletic performance aren’t always as apparent as they should be, but it’s there, either pushing you along with more energy, faster recovery, and a stronger immune system, or it’s dragging you down, leaving you feeling haggard, tired, and sluggish. In our battle to conquer our nutrition the easy way out is supplements. With pre-workouts, post-workouts, intra-workouts, and every sort of pill and powder imaginable designed to help cure all of our nutritional woes we hit them hard. But in reality, eating clean will do more for you than all of the nutritional supplements in the world. And the first step in cleaning up your nutrition is starting a...

The importance of Proofreading in Translated Material
Thu, 23 Mar 2017 22:59:00 +0000   
On the 25th of July 2016, Channel 5 aired an episode of Fireman Sam which showed the character slipping on a piece of paper whilst carrying tea in through a doorway. This paper is flung into the air and it can be seen to be a page from the Quran. The video went viral and shared by over 10,000 people within the first 24 hours after it was bought to the attention of the public by one twitter user. This caused a lot of embarrassment for both Mattel and Channel 5. Why was this allowed to happen? Well it can be argued that it was Islamophobia and the artist did this to either deliberately offend a large proportion of a religious community or perhaps for self-satisfaction due to prejudice and bias...

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 22:52:00 +0000   
A federal judge in New York has been tasked with organizing a slew of 9/11 lawsuits blaming Saudi Arabia for the 2001 terrorist attacks, The Associated Press reported Thursday.

Meanwhile, Magistrate Sarah Netburn presided over a hearing Thursday bringing together dozens of lawyers who have filed lawsuits since the bill’s passage last year, the report said. The lawsuits represent thousands of family members of those who died in the terrorist attack and others who were injured, the report said. In June, Saudi Arabia is expected to appear in court to...

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 22:40:00 +0000   
(AP) — An Oregon judge who last year ruled that a transgender person can legally change their sex to "non-binary" has given the OK for a Portland resident to be genderless. Multnomah County Judge Amy Holmes Hehn on March 10 granted a petition allowing Patrick Abbatiello to go from male to "agender" and switch to the single name Patch. The 27-year-old Patch writes and designs video games and had been using the name Patch since well before the decision to legally change. In an email, the judge told NBC News, which first reported about Patch's case, that her decisions were supported by facts and law. ......
CBO Finds Revised GOP Health Care Plan Would Still Raise Uninsured Rates
Thu, 23 Mar 2017 22:22:00 +0000   
The revised Republican bill to replace Obamacare as proposed would still lead to the same number of Americans losing health insurance as their first plan according to the Congressional Budget Office on Thursday, reported by Reuters. The CBO said that the revision would still cause 24 million to be uninsured by 2026 compared to the current law. The bill itself is currently delayed in the House of Representatives. President Donald Trump and other House leaders attempted to convince some of the skeptical members of the Republican Party to promise their votes but instead were dealt a setback. The financial markets ended slightly down on Thursday after the delay since the markets were using it as...

From caricature to man of character: How time and art change image of Bush
Thu, 23 Mar 2017 21:46:00 +0000   

From caricature to man of character: How time and art change image of BushLast July, when former President George W. Bush began to smile and sway to “The Battle Hymn of the Republic,” holding hands with both his wife and former first lady Michelle Obama during the closing moments of a memorial service for five Dallas police officers, many of his long-time detractors could only look and mock. On traditional and social media, Mr. Bush, making a rare public appearance at the time, was once again the president of the malaprop, seemingly lacking in seriousness and curiosity, the smirking architect of a disastrous and unnecessary war.
