Trump has a desperate need which repeatedly compels him to invent an alternate reality he can inhabit, on an imaginary pedestal constructed of lies.

It's a need arising from deep insecurity, compelling stupid, deceitful statements, like his recent claims that former presidents didn't call the families of fallen servicemen.

No man who lives inside a web of such deceit deserves to be called a president. He's more like a venomous spider, waiting for the next inconvenient truth he can call "fake news"...

From the article linked below:

THE families of slain US soldiers have lashed out at Donald Trump, branding him a “fat f**king liar”, after he falsely said past presidents had never called them.

“When my brother was killed (in Iraq War), Pres Bush listened while I screamed at him & then held me as I sobbed, you fat f**king liar,” Delilia O’Malley tweeted at President Trump.

Her fury was echoed by Gold Star families and the staffers of former presidents, who accused President Trump of blatantly lying.

The Republican leader said in a news conference on Monday he had written letters to the families of four soldiers killed in an October 4 ambush in Niger and planned to call them, crediting himself with taking extra steps in honouring the dead properly.
“Most of them didn’t make calls,” he said of his predecessors. He said it’s possible that President Barack Obama “did sometimes” but “other presidents did not call.”

Researchers release the brakes on the immune system - Many tumors possess mechanisms to avoid destruction by the immune system. For instance, they misuse the natural "brakes" in the immune defense mechanism that normally prevent an excessive immune response. Researchers at the University of Bonn have now been able to remove one of these brakes. The study, which involved colleagues from Hamburg and Würzburg, could pave the way for more effective cancer therapies. It is published in the journ...

Beyonce Turned Down a Role in Beauty and the Beast

When #BillCondon was rounding out the cast for Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, he tried—and failed—to involve #Beyonce. He had worked with her before, when she played Deena Jones in his 2006 film Dreamgirls. To date, he's one of just two directors to put her in a musical—the first being Robert Townsend, who directed MTV's Carmen: A Hip Hopera. "Isn't that weird?" Condon recently asked Yahoo! Movies. "God, it seems crazy!"

Other Android devices on the market with an always-on display such as the LG V30 and Galaxy S8 move whatever is displayed on screen every few minutes from one part of the display to a completely different part, and you notice what’s happening pretty quickly. One minute the content may be up top, and the next it could be at the bottom.

Google decided to take a more subtle approach with the Pixel 2’s implementation. Instead of moving completely, the content simply shifts by “at most” a pixel whenever the minute changes. It’s very likely that you’ll never even notice that it’s happening.

(5) New hope for humans in an A.I. world | Louis Rosenberg | TEDxKC - YouTube

'Imagine a global "Hive Mind" that can tap the knowledge, wisdom, insights, and intuitions of millions of people, and produce a super-intelligence that is much smarter than any individual person. A new technology called Artificial Swarm Intelligence is making this possible and it could be our best defense against the emerging dangers of AI. Louis Rosenberg, PhD is a researcher, entrepreneur, and writer. He is currently Founder & CEO of Unanimous AI, an artificial intelligence company that amplifies human intelligence by building “hive minds” modeled after biological swarms. A prolific inventor, Rosenberg has been awarded over 350 patents worldwide for his work in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Human-Computer Interaction. Rosenberg was also the creator of the Virtual Fixtures system for the U.S. Air Force in the early 90's, the first immersive Augmented Reality system. Prior to his current role at Unanimous AI, Rosenberg was founder and CEO of Immersion Corporation (NASDAQ: IMMR) and Outland Research, and has worked as a tenured professor at California State University (Cal Poly). This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx'

Velcro on a stick

Common agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria)

Svartskog, Norway

Yet another species using hooks for seed dispersal, and so many seeds!

In summer this is a plant with lovely yellow flowers swaying on long inflorescences. Come autumn and seed dispersal, furry animals or humans wearing loopy fabrics will most definitely get acquainted with this species as they will stick to your pants or to the fur of your dog as small and annoying balls that you must rip out with hairs and fabric to free yourself from it.

Humanity as for quite some time now acknowledged this to be a most ingenious, fast and very safe way to solve so many of our everyday needs in the form of Velcro. As so many times before, and countless times to come, nature has found the best way to solve fundamental practical problems.

This is one of several plants growing alongside the road in the hill behind my home, and they seem to spread as the seeds are dispersed by people walking their dogs or just enjoying nature here. The locations I found them first have no such expansion, which proves very well how the hooked seeds in areas with a stable flow of humans and furry animals provide an efficient dispersal method.

In a world in which meta-humans are more populous, where magic hid itself after humanity tried to kill it off, there are still communities that live on, using the old language, growing in urban centers, where most people are simply overlooked. In this world, resides a small, basic neighborhood known as Hell's Kitchen, within the city of New York. There the nights are still and silent...or so it seems. A lot of them are this time in age. There is fear in Hell's Kitchen. The devil can feel it flowing through the veins of those who walk the streets, the good and the bad. He heard it inhale and exhale in the midst of the cold nights. Yet he is unbound by these fears. The city unrolls like a carpet in front of him, above him, behind, below, to either side of him and he can feel its heart racing. He wishes he could say he was here for the view, but even that's too much of a lie, even for him to stomach. He loves the city, loves it deep down to the bones. He is unseeing, and yet, always watching...


"People often call me "fearless." I'd be lying if I said I really minded the title, but I'd also be lying if I admitted any truth to it at all. Everyone is afraid of something. Ask any of my friends, they'll tell you I'm a God-fearing man. While that's true, there are other, mortal things I am afraid of. I don't fear death--that should be a given. If death scared me at all, I wouldn't do what I do. Every night, I tread past death's door, the possibility of not coming home tomorrow is always clear in the back of my head. I'm not afraid of pain, defeat, or most things the everyman may hesitate when faced with...but I have my insecurities. My moments of doubt or hopelessness. I'm human. I still bleed. Sometimes, I simply ignore my fears; sometimes I go on and confront them. Whatever the trick may be in any given case, I can never allow myself give into them. I'm not as fearless as the press gives me credit for, but I do my damnedest not to show it. Fear, after all, does not eclipse courage. Courage comes from rising above your fears."


He listens to the city around him. While it would be considerably quiet to any regular person, the basic sounds of the city are uproarious to the devil's amplified hearing. If he didn't know how utilize his senses properly, every little sound would be deafening to his ears.


"I guess you could say I was a bit of a bookworm as a kid. My father wanted me to be successful in life. He didn't want me to end up like him. An "uneducated pug" he'd say to describe himself. Due to this, it also meant I wasn't allowed to go outside with the other kids. I was bullied in school. The other kids would call me "Daredevil" because of how cautious and shy I was. Until the one time I wasn't. I was walking home from school one day when I noticed an old, blind man crossing the street. At the same time, the driver of a cargo truck carrying toxic waste through New York City traffic wasn't paying attention to the road. I ran towards the man and shouted after him. Deaf too, apparently. So I bolted towards him, jet-fuled by years of pent up fighting spirit. The trucks tires screeched and stopped at a skid, although I was still hit by the truck head on. Barrels of the waste flew out of the back and spilt all over the road. The last thing I ever saw was a glimpse of the sky and the glow of radiation. I was blinded instantly. Later there would be...compensations. The chemical isotope rewired my remaining senses over time--amplified them to superhuman performance."


"At a young age, my Mother abandoned my Father and I. I don't have much memory of her...but my father? My father, Battlin' Jack Murdock, was a prize fighter who was forced into doing some pretty bad stuff for some pretty bad men. He was a worn, small time boxer, who when told to, refused to take a dive during his last boxing match because he wanted his blind son to hear the crowd cheering his name. Later that night, he was shot by a couple of gang members. The man that pulled the trigger was a man named Slade. Didn't have too much information on him. The man who gave the order was Roscoe Sweeney, who called himself "The Fixer."


"My world had become a much darker place when my father was taken from me in a cruel twist of fate. I had to mourn the wrongful loss of my father whilst trying to find light in the darkness. Eventually an old man named "Stick" would find me in the orphanage. He taught me how to control and hone my senses. He taught me how to fight. He showed me everything I was capable of. I hated him, but he taught me well. After he abandoned me, I began my hunt for the Fixer in search of justice and answers. I located him and his followers, including Slade, and pursued them in a chase through a subway station after chasing them away from their headquarters. Before I could get Sweeney to confess, he died of a heart attack. I'd say he got lucky. Slade would deal with life in prison. Once I got a little taste of crime fighting, I decided to put my abilities to good use."


The devil rests nimbly on a gargoyle, where he stalks his prey and tunes his ears into the city. The citizens of Hell's Kitchen see the dark silhouette of a man in the crescent moonlight, save for the two horns protruding from the mask he dons. He listens to the city in case its people call for help. He puts his own life on the line to defend those who can't defend themselves. A man like this does more in a single evening than one true, fashionable hero does in a week.


"This is Hell's Kitchen. It raised me, practically. This city let me breathe its air. Sure, I've lost things in its streets...my father, my eyes, and occasionally...my religion. I'm not sure which hurts me the most anymore, but I've gained things too. "Super friends"...a different kind of family. My lawfirm. When I put on the mask, when I hide my eyes, the ones I forgive this city for taking, that's when the devil comes out. That's when I feel I've lost whatever moral religion I have left. I constantly remind myself that where ever I walk, I walk with my father's composed and fearless demons, because my father had devils of his own, sure enough. He brought the demons with him into the ring and they backed him through every punch, through every win, every loss, and his ghosts were always there watching...waiting...cheering."


A dark and dirty city bleeds and a hero is born in the oozing wound...


"My name is Matthew Murdock, but Hell's Kitchen knows me by another name..."

Donald Trump's third version of travel ban blocked by Hawaii judge

A US judge on Tuesday barred the White House from implementing yet another version of Donald Trump’s controversial executive order on immigration, hours before it was to go into full effect.

The decision by Hawaii federal judge Derrick Watson – which the White House signaled it would appeal – marks the latest blow to Trump’s long-running efforts to restrict entry of travelers from targeted countries into the United States.

Watson said the third rendition of the travel ban – covering people from six mainly Muslim countries, as well as North Korea and some officials from Venezuela – could not be justified under law.

In his decision Watson wrote the ban "suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor: it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more than 150 million nationals from six specific countries would be ’detrimental to the interests of the United States.’

The ruling meant the Trump administration will again be forced to ask the Supreme Court to decide whether his immigration orders are legal.
