President Donald Trump's charitable foundation, which last year admitted violating federal rules on "self-dealing," is in the process of dissolving, according to newly filed documents reviewed by NBC News.

The move fulfills a promise Trump made last December, when he said he would wind down the Donald J. Trump Foundation to avoid conflicts of interest. New York's attorney general ordered the foundation to stop soliciting contributions in October 2016.

Cassini's Last Ring Portrait at Saturn.
Image Credit: NASA, JPL-Caltech, Space Science Institute, Mindaugas Macijauskas
Explanation: How should Cassini say farewell to Saturn? Three days before plunging into Saturn's sunny side, the robotic Cassini spacecraft swooped far behind Saturn's night side with cameras blazing. Thirty-six of these images have been merged -- by an alert and adept citizen scientist -- into a last full-ring portrait of Cassini's home planet for the past 13 years. The Sun is just above the frame, causing Saturn to cast a dark shadow onto its enormous rings. This shadow position cannot be imaged from Earth and will not be visible again until another Earth-launched spaceship visits the ringed giant. Data and images from Cassini's mission-ending dive into Saturn's atmosphere on September 15 continue to be analyzed.

When we talk about black borders on video, we could be talking about multiple things. First, we have letterboxing (only on the top and bottom) and pillarboxing (only on the sides). Those are added when the native shape, or aspect ratio, of a movie or TV show doesn't match the final presentation format. For example, an old TV show, which was made for 4x3 TVs, needs to have pillarboxing added when it's released on Blu-ray, because Blu-ray can only be in widescreen. The black is spacing, and is added to fill out the screen. The original shape of the picture is preserved, and no part of the image is cut off (ideally).

But what I think you're talking about is what happened on older Bandai Visual transfers: a thin black box is added around the entire perimeter of a new HD master, even though it's unnecessary. The reason for this is something called "overscan," and it's a relic of how old tube TVs used to work.

Gameday. ⚔️ the Pistons host the Cavaliers

With all the injuries the Cavaliers have been hit with, coupled with an ugly start to the season, it forces the Cavaliers into multiple like up changes. The Iman Shumpert injuries linger for 5-7 days. Jose Calderon gets his second start of the season. The Pistons are playing their second game of a back to back, after winning against the Timberwolves on the road. The Pistons have the edge in multiple areas and have won all(3,) of their back-to-back games this season.

So far the Detroit Pistons have been one of the best teams in the league. They’re better than solid on the defensive end. They; take care of the ball, finish possessions with defensive rebounds, can score/shoot, move the ball, and they control the pace of games by slowing things down. The Pistons play tough, and have won their last 6 games at home.

The Cavaliers are currently on a 4 game winning streak, with a 5.4 Net rating. In a series of comeback wins and close games it would be nice to us control a game from start to finish; or at least put a game out of reach before the 5 minute mark of the 4th quarter. With a old roster that’s been hit the injury bug, rest in games/in between games is vital. This game marks the first time we will come into a game with 3 days of rest.

Theory: Flexibility is at the Heart of Human Intelligence

Centuries of study have yielded many theories about how the brain gives rise to human intelligence. Some neuroscientists think intelligence springs from a single region or neural network. Others argue that metabolism or the efficiency with which brain cells make use of essential resources are key.

The research is in Trends in Cognitive Sciences. (full open access)

Download the OnePlus 5T Wallpapers by Hampus Olsson - The OnePlus 5T was finally launched last week after months of speculation, and it didn’t disappoint.

For every OnePlus device since the OnePlus 2, all of the exclusive wallpapers have been released separately by the respective artists, and we’re happy to report ...
