Nearly four decades after voters unceremoniously rejected then-President Jimmy Carter’s bid for a second term, the 39th president has reached a milestone that electoral math cannot dispute.

#China’s close relationship with #Brazil could be under threat after the right-wing president of #LatinAmerica’s largest economy spoke of his desire for 'a new era of closer ties' with the #UnitedStates. China loomed large during #JairBolsonaro’s visit to Washington this week, with his #US counterpart Donald #Trump keen to find a new ally to counter Beijing’s rising global influence amid an ongoing trade war and escalating geopolitical rivalry with the Asian giant.

While Bolsonaro said his visit to Washington was a success with 'important advances achieved in the economic, security and foreign policy areas', Trump’s national security adviser, #JohnBolton, hailed Brazil as a major ally and a strategic partner on #Venezuela, #Iran and China. Since 2003, China, which is Brazil’s top trading partner, has invested US$124bn in the South American country, mostly in the oil, mining and energy sectors. China also accounted for almost 28% of Brazil’s exports in 2018, while two-way trade between them in 2017 totalled US$75bn, according to Reuters.

Should China be worried about Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s bromance with Donald Trump?

The #EU has handed #TheresaMay two weeks’ grace to devise an alternative #Brexit plan if her deal falls next week after the prime minister failed to convince the bloc that she was capable of avoiding a #nodealBrexit. After a marathon late-night session of talks, the EU’s leaders ripped up May’s proposals and a new Brexit timeline was pushed on the prime minister to avoid the cliff-edge deadline of 29 March - next Friday. Under the deal agreed by May, #Britain will now stay a member state until 12 April if the #withdrawalagreement is rejected by MPs at the third time of asking.

May had been asking for an extension to #article50 until 30 June to make time for vital legislation to pass should she manage to get her deal through the Commons next week. But her appeal 'dismally' failed to offer any answers as to what she would do if the deal was blocked by MPs again, sources said, provoking EU leaders into taking matters into their own hands and in effect taking control of her future.

First Congress threatened to cut off federal funds to universities using components made by telecom giant #Huawei. Next came a classified FBI briefing last fall for University of California research chiefs about foreign espionage threats. Then in January the US government charged the Chinese firm with bank fraud, violating US sanctions against Iran and theft of trade secrets. Berkeley is among a growing number of American universities, including such research powerhouses as Stanford, MIT and UC San Diego, that have begun to cut off ties with Huawei.

The moves come in response to warnings from US law enforcement agencies that Huawei can't be trusted and could secretly do Beijing's bidding, whether by spying or sabotage. Moreover, the #Trumpadministration wants to restrain Huawei - the world's largest telecom equipment maker - from expanding its grip on development of critical #5G infrastructure, the next-generation wireless networking system that experts believe will transform connectivity for self-driving cars, factory automation and many other applications.

President Donald #Trump heaped praise Tuesday (Mar 19) on right-wing Brazilian President #JairBolsonaro - and received plenty back - in announcing a special relationship that he said could even see the Latin American country join NATO. Trump, stressing #Brazil’s partnership in the U.S.-led campaign to force hard-left Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power, said Bolsonaro was “doing a fantastic job” and had 'brought the country together.'

For years Bolsonaro was little more than a marginal congressman, but his Trump-like campaign in 2018, promising to combat corruption and crime, and to end politics as usual, propelled him to surprise victory. His hard-right views, including frequent expressions of support for Brazil’s past period of military rule, horrified the left and drove deep divisions in Latin America’s biggest nation.

President Donald #Trump has a low approval rating. He is engaging in bitter Twitter wars and facing metastasizing investigations. But if the election were held today, he’d likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses.

While Trump appears to be in a much stronger position than his approval rating and conventional Beltway wisdom might suggest, he also could wind up in trouble if the economy slows markedly between now and next fall. And other legal bombshells could explode the current scenario. Trump’s party managed to lose the House in 2018 despite a strong #economy. So the models could wind up wrong this time around.

There are essentially three parts to the GauGAN software: a paint bucket, pen and pencil. At the bottom of the screen are a bunch of labels like sky, water, rock, and sand. Select "water" and tap the paintbrush and the tool will turn your blue line into a cascading, photorealistic waterfall. The same goes for turning circles into clouds or lumps into rocks or a cliffside.

So This is Making America Great Again?
Check out which bases in foreign countries are being considered for school and child care cuts. Then look at the Alaskan air base with no room for a school with 240 children additional. These are political targets. In Arizona McSally reports there should not be any such cuts. But we know who she’s a big fan of.

Trump's border wall money may come at expense of schools for military kids

A woodland walk in spring

Today is the spring equinox and while I haven't been able to photograph as much over the past few weeks as I would have liked, the days are getting longer and warmer.

Time again to venture on an epic photography tour in Ireland.

BRAZILIAN SCIENTISTS PRODUCE MINI-BRAINS WITH EYES

“Organoids are tiny, self-organized tissue cultures. They’re comprised of stem cells that can be programmed to replicate naturally occurring tissue. Using them, scientists can grow mini organs of various types for research purposes, and, not surprisingly, there’s a lot of interest in mini-brains. Researchers from the D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR) have announced the creation of one that includes retinal cells — primitive eyes…”
