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.

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.

#Italy is set to enter into a landmark economic cooperation with #China, making Rome the first of the elite #G7 group to officially join Beijing's vision to expand its footprint across the globe. Chinese President #XiJinping is set to arrive Friday (Mar 22) in Rome, where he and Italian Prime Minister #GiuseppeConte are widely expected to sign a memorandum of understanding on Italy's participation in the #BeltandRoadInitiative (BRI). The ambitious plan has already seen billions of dollars invested in various international projects, many of them involving expensive infrastructure projects in Africa and Asia. But Xi has long sought to take his signature project into a skeptical West.

The #US and the European Union have been deeply critical of China's growing economic presence worldwide, accusing the country of using investment as a means of pushing its own political agenda. Italy's apparent decision to sign onto #BRI would come amid staunch Western pressure, but according to Jacob Shapiro from Geopolitical Future, he U.S. has opted for political posturing rather than offering real alternatives.

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.

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.

But their emails: Seven members of Trump’s team have used unofficial communication tools

President #Trump’s objections to #HillaryClinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state were never terribly convincing. At times, he claimed that Clinton, his Democratic presidential challenger in 2016, had tried to shield unethical activity by using a personal account. At others, he specifically criticized her for having shared classified material through her personal account.

If Trump’s broad criticism was true, that the use of a private account to conduct official business is suspect - if not illegal - and represents an effort to mask illicit activity, then we have bad news for him: An awful lot of that same suspect activity is taking place in his administration. Trump’s son-in-law, #JaredKushner, and daughter #IvankaTrump, both advisers to the president, had used either personal email accounts or the messaging application WhatsApp to conduct official business, according to information from the House Oversight Committee. The committee also learned that former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland and former adviser Stephen K. Bannon had also, at times, used personal email accounts for official business.

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…”
