Trump's motto was "Make America Great Again".

He omitted the last part of his slogan.

..for those who are already obscenely rich, with nothing better to do than destroy whatever is before them out of boredom and narcissism."

Trump is still adjusting the laws of the USA to suit his ego and sense of entitlement which springs from his malignant narcissism.

From the article linked below:

The Trump administration recently rolled back protections for African lions, releasing new guidelines that allow hunters to bring trophies from animals killed in parts of Africa into the U.S., according to updated rules released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service."

...a new page on the FWS website that details the regulations and calls hunting a “conservation tool.”

The news comes the same week the White House came under fire over its plans to lift a ban on the import of elephant trophies...

Allowing hunters to import elephant and lion trophies is a direct rollback of two Obama-era regulations meant to protect the species. ....

Wayne Pacelle, president of The Humane Society of the United States, published a blog post slamming the move and saying the change cast the federal government as “a promoter of trophy hunting” in an interview with The Guardian.
....

President Donald Trump sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are big game hunters. Trump Jr. has traveled to Africa to hunt, and a photo that surfaced in 2012 shows him holding the severed tail of an elephant he shot and killed. Another photo shows the two brothers posing with a slain leopard.

Trump continues to do what Trump wants. He has no care for anything or anyone else.

November 19, 2005-Michael and the kids stay at the Al Bustan Palace Hotel in Muscat, Oman.Here is a story from an Oman fan who met him there:

My name is Samira from Muscat and I'm 33 years old. I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson since I was four years old. When I was little I was a fan of Shakin’ Stevens also but somehow , I think it was in 1980, I fell in love with Michael's voice. The songs which I recall from back then are 'One day in your life and I can't help it. But then Thriller came out and got me started. God, I loved Michael Jackson from there onwards. I never get bored watching this clip but nowadays it's hard to get The Making of Thriller on DVD! Back in those years everything was on video tapes and yes, it was easy to get it.

Thriller also became my favourite album. I still have so many cassettes at home for it's hard to get this stuff on CDs here! I also started collecting his pictures from newspapers, magazines, posters etc and still do until this very day. I'm always looking forward to something new from Michael. His music is amazing. You can dance to the tune yet his music relaxes your mind. And I simply love his dance moves! This man was so gifted and talented.

I never saw Michael live in concert but I did watch all the concerts on DVD and wow they are magic. I never get bored watching the Bad and Dangerous tours on DVD. Here in my office I even set up a screen saver with Michael Jackson on it, too.

During all those years of being a fan I always said to myself that one day I will meet Michael Jackson in person. And believe it or not but my dream really did come true when Michael visited Oman in 2005.

At first it was just a rumour that he was in town but I didn't believe it! But as the rumours kept on I got suspicious. I knew that tracking Michael down, would be like mission impossible, but I thought if he indeed is here I just have to meet him!

So, my friend Fahad and I went to the Grand Hyatt Hotel. There we waited for hours & hours it soon became clear that Michael indeed was in the hotel. It was 16th of November, 2005, and my birthday was the following day. Though I didn't give up easily, I really wanted to meet my idol in person!

The following day (my birthday) I called the hotel and asked if it was possible to speak to Michael Jackson. Of course, the receptionist refused, and added that Michael didn't want to be disturbed.

So another day passed without any sight of Michael and I was growing desperate yet at the same time very determined so I called the hotel again. This time I asked the receptionist about Michael Jackson's whereabouts and luckily found out that Michael was going to be at the Al Bustan Place Hotel tomorrow!

Next day I was at my station in NSC (Network Service Centre), anxiously waiting by the clock, counting down the minutes, so that I could pursue my mission. Finally it was time and I went to the Al Bustan Place Hotel togeher with Fahad. We waited for so long but nothing happned. Though exhausted and tired I nevertheless decided to return the next day.

It was Sunday when I returned to wait in the lobby of the Al Bustan hotel. I prepared for a long wait but suddenly a security guard approached me. It was the same one that I saw at the Hyatt few days ago. He said, You haven't seen him yet?, Come with me and I'll introduce you! I froze and couldn't believe what he had just said to me.

But indeed, a few moments later, there he was wearing a red shirt and black trousers, his hair open and staring at me through his black sunglasses. My first reaction was to walk to Michael and give him a hand shake & kiss his cheeks. I said, Hi I'm Samira and I'm a big fan!

It really was a pity that I didn't have a camera with me, but it all happened so fast. However I managed to get his autograph, Love always, Michael Jackson. He wrote on the inside cover of his book. He was simply amazing and so kind. I will never forget that day of meeting my idol.

Finally my Mission Impossible was complete!

I MET MICHAEL JACKSON!

Science crime in progress!

I need to come up with a copypasta explanation of this project and why I post these kinds of things to this collection because it's a bitch to keep typing the same thing over and over!

From the article: Last month, Josiah Zayner, a biochemist who once worked for NASA, became the first person known to have edited his own genes with CRISPR. During a lecture about human genetic engineering that was streamed live on Facebook, Zayner whipped out a vial and a syringe, then injected himself. Now, following in his footsteps, other biohackers are getting ready to take the plunge and tinker with their own genes.

Jango Fett & Clone trooper
Join the album to stay updated: http://bit.ly/1Pn1zTH

Jango Fett Wielding two blaster pistols and advanced mandalorian armor, bounty hunter Jango Fett was the perfect choice for the Republic to base their Clone Army on. He agreed to the proposal of Darth Tyrannus and made Kamino his base, but only on the condition that one clone would go unaltered for Jango to raise as his son: Boba.
Clone trooper The secret creation of Sheev Palpatine and Count Dooku, the Clone Trooper Army was made from the DNA of bounty hunter Jango Fett on the world of Kamino. Trained to be elite soldiers, the Clones fight with honor and admit their expendability. Little did the Clones know their real reason for existing: to destroy the Jedi Knights and make Palpatine into an Emperor by carrying out Order 66.

As allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore multiply and polls suggest he could lose the senate race he once led by double-digits, political analysts offer one cautionary refrain: Remember, it’s Alabama and he’s a Republican.

But a look at Moore’s last general election in the state shows its voters may be a bit more complicated than that – and December’s senate race could be as well.

The founder of psychoanalysis, still relevant 100 years on.

"Sigmund Freud introduced the notion of the unconscious thought, which he believed took place in the ‘id’ part of our psyche. Now neuroscience research matches onto what Freud called, superego."

--------------------

Over the past five years, there’s been increasing research on metacognition, which is, quite simply, knowing that we know. In other words, metacognition is an awareness of our conscious thought processes. A clear-cut example is a contestant on a quiz show making a judgment about the extent to which she’s confident of her answer—she is thinking about her own thoughts

While Freud’s concept of the superego played a more ethical role, encouraging the id and ego to follow moral rules, its role (much like metacognition) was to impose order.

-------------------

In a recent lecture on metacognition at this year’s Scientific Study of Consciousness conference, cognitive psychologist Axel Cleeremans pointed out that Freud’s Id-Ego-Superego structure roughly matches onto the Unconscious-Conscious-Metacognition structure of the mind studied in neuroscience today.

“The ‘id’ is what we call the unconscious today or the idea that there’s a vast reservoir of representations that sits there and influences ongoing processing but without being available to conscious awareness,” he says. “The ‘super-ego’ in a sense is connected with meta-cognition, with the idea that in addition to first-order awareness, the technical movie that we have as soon as we wake up and the field of sensations we experience and thoughts we have, there’s an additional monitoring and control system.”

-------------------

Cleeremans believes that much of Freud’s work has scientific value today. “I think he’s wrongly discredited. He’s discredited for all sorts of political reasons that have nothing to do with the ideas,” he says. While Freud’s work on sexuality and women, for example, are largely dismissed, there’s still considerable value in broad structure of his work. “The core set of ideas hold up,” adds Cleeremans.
