WASHINGTON – Addressing a deeply divided nation, President Donald Trump summoned the country to a “new American moment” of unity in his first State of the Union, challenging Congress to make good on long-standing promises to fix a fractured immigration system and warning darkly of evil forces seeking to undermine America’s way of life.Trump’s address Tuesday night blended self-congratulation and calls for optimism amid a growing economy with ominous warnings about deadly gangs, the scourge of drugs and violent immigrants living in the United States illegally. He cast the debate over immigration — an issue that has long animated his most ardent supporters — as a battle between heroes and villains, leaning heavily on the personal stories of White House guests in the crowd. He praised a law enforcement agent who arrested more than 100 gang members, and he recognized the families of two alleged gang victims.He also spoke forebodingly of catastrophic dangers from abroad, warning that North Korea would “very soon” threaten the United States with nuclear-tipped missiles.“The United States is a compassionate nation. We are proud that we do more than any other country to help the needy, the struggling and the underprivileged all over the world,” Trump said. “But as president of the United States, my highest loyalty, my greatest compassion, and my constant concern is for America’s children, America’s struggling workers and America’s forgotten communities.”Trump addressed the nation with tensions running high on Capitol Hill. An impasse over immigration prompted a three-day government shutdown earlier this year, and lawmakers appear no closer to resolving the status of the “Dreamers” — young people living in the U.S. illegally ahead of a new Feb. 8 deadline for funding operations. The parties have also clashed this week over the plans of Republicans on the House intelligence committee to release a classified memo on the Russia investigation involving Trump’s presidential campaign — a decision the White House backs but the Justice Department is fighting.The controversies that have dogged Trump — and the ones he has created— have overshadowed strong economic gains during his first year in office. His approval ratings have hovered in the 30s for much of his presidency, and just 3 in 10 Americans said the United States was heading in the right direction, according to a poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. In the same survey, 67 per cent of Americans said the country was more divided because of Trump.At times, Trump’s address appeared to be aimed more at validating his first year in office than setting the course for his second. He devoted significant time to touting the tax overhaul he signed at the end of last year, promising the plan will “provide tremendous relief for the middle class and small businesses.” He also highlighted the decision made early in his first year to withdraw the U.S. from a sweeping Asia-Pacific trade pact, declaring: “The era of economic surrender is totally over.”He spoke about potential agenda items for 2018 in broad terms, including a call for $1.5 trillion in new infrastructure spending and partnerships with states and the private sector. He touched only briefly on issues like health care that have been at the centre of the Republican Party’s policy agenda for years.Tackling the sensitive immigration debate that has roiled Washington, Trump redoubled his recent pledge to offer a path to citizenship for 1.8 million young immigrants — but only as part of a package that would also require increased funding for border security, including a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, ending the nation’s visa lottery method and revamping the current legal immigration system. Some Republicans are wary of the hardline elements of Trump’s plan and it’s unclear whether his blueprint could pass Congress.“Americans are dreamers too,” Trump said, in an apparent effort to reclaim the term used to describe the young immigrants in the U.S. illegally.A former New York Democrat, the president also played to the culture wars that have long illuminated American politics, alluding to his public spat with professional athletes who led protests against racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem, declaring that paying tribute to the flag is a “civic duty.”Republicans led multiple rounds of enthusiastic applause during the speech, but for the opposition party it was a more sombre affair. Democrats provided a short spurt of polite applause for Trump as he entered the chamber, but offered muted reactions throughout the speech. A cluster of about two dozen Democrats, including members of the Congressional Black Caucus, remained planted firmly in their seats, staring sternly at the president and withholding applause.After devastating defeats in 2016, Democrats are hopeful that Trump’s sagging popularity can help the party rebound in November’s midterm elections. In a post-speech rebuttal, Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, was seeking to undercut Trump’s optimistic tone and remind voters of the personal insults and attacks often levelled by the president.“Bullies may land a punch,” Kennedy said. “They might leave a mark. But they have never, not once, in the history of our United States, managed to match the strength and spirit of a people united in defence of their future.”The arc of Trump’s 80-minute speech featured the personal stories of men and women who joined first lady Melania Trump in the audience. The guests included a New Mexico policeman and his wife who adopted a baby from parents who suffered from opioid addiction, and Ji Seong-ho, a defector from North Korea and outspoken critic of the Kim Jong-un government.On international affairs, Trump warned of the dangers from “rogue regimes,” like Iran and North Korea, terrorist groups, like the Islamic State, and “rivals” like China and Russia “that challenge our interests, our economy and our values.” Calling on Congress to lift budgetary caps and boost spending on the military, Trump said that “unmatched power is the surest means of our defence.”Trump’s biggest foreign policy announcement of the night concerned the Guantanamo Bay detention centre, which former President Barack Obama tried but failed to close. Reversing Obama’s policy, Trump said he’d signed an executive order Tuesday directing the Pentagon to keep the prison open while re-examining the military’s policy on detention.Trump said he was also asking Congress to ensure the U.S. had needed powers to detain Islamic State group members and other “terrorists wherever we chase them down,” though it was unclear whether he was referring to a new war powers authorization or some other mechanism. Trump also said he wanted Congress to pass a law ensuring U.S. foreign aid goes only “to America’s friends” — a reference to his frustration at U.S. aid recipients that voted at the U.N. to rebuke his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.Mrs. Trump arrived at the Capitol ahead of her husband to attend a reception with guests of the White House, but she rode back to the White House with him. It was the first time she was seen publicly with the president following a report that his lawyer arranged a payment to a porn star, Stormy Daniels, to prevent her from talking about an alleged affair. Daniels denied the affair in a new statement released hours before the speech.___Follow Julie Pace at http://twitter.com/jpaceDC and Zeke Miller at http://twitter.com/zekejmiller

The Independent newspaper in Britain which published the latest photograph today said the images were taken in May 2009 at the very end of the Sri Lankan government’s operation to crush the LTTE. The newspaper report claimed the images, contained in a new documentary, No Fire Zone, which will be screened at the Geneva Human Rights Film Festival during the UN Human Rights Council meeting in March, suggest the boy was captured alive and killed at a later stage. “It is difficult to imagine the psychology of an army in which the calculated execution of a child can be allowed with apparent impunity. That these events were also photographed and kept as war trophies by the perpetrators is even more disturbing.” The 12-year-old’s father, Prabhakaran, was killed along with most of the senior leadership of the LTTE as Sri Lanka’s army advanced on the rebels’ position. There were reports at the time that several LTTE officials were shot and killed as they tried to surrender.Prabhakaran’s body was displayed on state television, part of the front of his skull missing, also suggesting he may have been shot at close range. The Sri Lankan authorities have always denied shooting anyone who was trying to surrender. Last night, Brigadier PR Wanigasooriya, an army spokesman, said Sri Lanka had been a repeated victim of “lies, half truths, rumours, and numerous forms of speculations”.“No substantive evidence have been presented for us to launch an investigation,” he added, referring to alleged human rights abuses. A new video, set to be screened in Geneva on the sidelines of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session next month, shows what it claims to be the son of LTTE leader Villupillai Prabhakaran being fed inside a military bunker before being shot dead.Balachandran Prabhakara, the 12-year-old son of the rebel leader, was shown in an earlier video with bullet wounds on his body but the army denied capturing him during the final stages of the war. A forensic pathologist who examined the later images for the film-makers, said the boy was shot five times in the chest. Furthermore, propellant burns around the wound suggest he was shot at very close range.“The new photographs are enormously important evidentially because they appear to rule out any suggestion that Balachandran was killed in cross-fire or during a battle. They show he was held, and even given a snack, before being taken and executed in cold blood,” claimed the film’s director, Callum Macrae.
THE MINISTER FOR Foreign Affairs expressed his concern to Northern Ireland’s Secretary of State about alleged ill-treatment of inmates of the Maze after a number of IRA prisoners escaped in 1983.A document marked ‘secret’ and published today under the 30 Year Rule outlines how Peter Barry raised the issue with James Prior during a three-hour briefing at Hillsborough.According to the file, the Fine Gael TD noted “the way in which prisoners had been ill-treated in the period following the escape and expressed the view that there seemed to be a lack of control over the prison officers”.Citing “reliable” sources, the Minister told Prior that one inmate had lost his front teeth while others were treated for “minor injuries”.Prior asked if he was ‘listening’ to Fr Denis Faul on the matter – a government source and Catholic chaplain at the H-Blocks – but Barry insisted there was other information available to his department.Both men agreed that temperatures had been raised following the escape of 38 republican prisoners in September of the same year.Prior also acknowledged that it was deemed a “major victory” for the IRA. Half the men were recaptured within 48 hours but the other 19 made it across the border. One was never seen or heard from again but four made it to the US.A prison officer was stabbed during the escape. He died later in hospital after suffering from a heart attack.The subject is also dealt with in papers released in Northern Ireland today under a similar 30 Year Rule.Although much of the detail about the escape kept in the Public Record Office will be sealed until 2069, those released today do contain allegations of serious brutality by prison officers, BBC News reports. The documents outline claims of prisoners being bitten by guard dogs and beaten by prison staff.Read: NI Secretary of State referred to Ian Paisley as a ‘schizophrenic’See TheJournal.ie‘s coverage of the 1983 State Papers>

SEE LATEST NEWS ITEMS ON MARIA AND LEE.2. The interaction of a weak low pressure area over central Florida and an upper-level low over the Gulf of Mexico is producing disorganized cloudiness and showers that extend from the northwestern Caribbean Sea northward across much of the Florida peninsula and the adjacent waters. Due to the low’s interaction with land and an expected increase of upper-level winds over the weekend, the likelihood of this system’s development appears to be decreasing. Locally heavy rainfall is still anticipated over portions of western Cuba, the Florida Keys, and the Florida peninsula during the next several days while the system moves slowly northward and then westward near northern Florida and the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. This has a low chance of formation over the next 5 days.3. A tropical wave interacting with an upper-level low is producing widespread cloudiness and showers extending from the eastern Caribbean Sea northeastward across the Lesser Antilles to the nearby Atlantic waters. Upper-level winds are not expected to be conducive for development while this system moves west-northwestward to westward at 10 to 15 mph during the next few days. However, locally heavy rainfall is expected over portions of the northern Leeward Islands and the Greater Antilles during the next several days, with a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands through late Sunday night. Formation chance over the next 5 days are low.FORECASTER: SHEZELLE MATHER /C.G. Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:

COPY LINKAD Loading … Representative ImageReutersPoland, the current president of United Nations Security Council (UNSC), on Monday, dismissed Pakistan’s efforts of raising the Kashmir issue to the international security body and called for finding a bilateral solution, according to reports. “Poland hopes that both countries can work out a mutually beneficial solution bilaterally.” Poland’s ambassador to India Adam Burakowski told The Indian Express.”Like the European Union, we are in favour of a dialogue between India and Pakistan,” he added.Burakowski further said that as a non-permanent member of the UNSC, Poland stands ready to prevent actions impacting security situation. “I would like to emphasise on the word ‘bilaterally’, that’s the keyword,” he added.A Polish Foreign Ministry statement revealed that the Indian Minister of External Affairs, S Jaishankar, had explained to Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz on August 8, that the amendment of the Indian Constitution is of “strictly internal nature” and aims at “bringing security to the region that is particularly vulnerable to terrorist attacks,” reported TIE.Pakistan has sought to raise to the UN security council the recent move by the Indian government, which scrapped Jammu and Kashmir’s special status provided under Article 370 of the Constitution.The report came on the same day Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi claimed that it will be difficult to find support against India from the five permanent members (P5) of the UNSC. He said garnering support “even from Muslim nations” would be difficult due to their strong economic relations with India.Qureshi said at a press conference on Monday, “People in the Security Council aren’t standing with flowers; any of the P5 members can be a hurdle. There shouldn’t be any ambiguity on that, do not live in a fool’s paradise.”The Security Council stated last week that New Delhi’s move was “within the framework of the Constitution of the Republic of India” and called for both the countries to “not allow a new aggravation of the situation in the region as a result of the decisions”.Russia, a permanent member of the UNSC, echoed the UN Chief’s statement on Article 370 and said, “We hope that the differences between them will be resolved by political and diplomatic means on a bilateral basis in accordance with the provisions of the Simla Agreement of 1972 and the Lahore Declaration of 1999.”Both the agreements state that Kashmir is a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan.Pakistan expelled Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria on August 7 and suspended all bilateral ties with India in retaliation to New Delhi’s decision. The neighbouring country said the move was an “illegal, unilateral, reckless and coercive attempt” by India.

Bungie and publisher Activision must be pleased with how well Destiny has sold over the two months since it launched with some 9.5 million user accounts registered. But they aren’t taking that success for granted, and as of yesterday Destiny became free to play in limited form.If you own a PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, or Xbox One, it’s now possible to download a demo version of the game. On the PS4 and Xbox One it is being called the Destiny Trial because at any point you can instantly upgrade to the full version via the in-game menu. However, on PS3 and Xbox 360 it’s called the Destiny Demo because you have to exit out of the game and purchase it digitally or go buy a physical copy to continue playing.In all cases the limited version of the game will allow you to experience the core features of the gameplay, including creating and evolving a Guardian, carrying out story missions, and partaking in social activities. It’s unclear how much content is included in this free version, but the words “limited-time demo” are used to describe it, meaning the main blocker could be the time you are allowed to spend in the world. If you do decide to continue playing beyond that limit, then all of your progress is saved and transferred over to the full game. You won’t need to start again.This idea of allowing the initial stages of the online game to be played for free has worked well for other MMOs, so there’s no reason it won’t attract many more players to Destiny in the coming months. Actually getting the game on your console isn’t exactly a small download, though. On PS3 and Xbox 360 it’s a 6GB download, but on PS4 and Xbox One you’ll be waiting for 20GB to transfer on to the hard drive.
Samsung Hands Out Limited-Edition Olympic-Themed Galaxy Note 8Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Not DIY Friendly Stay on target Samsung kicks off the annual device-reveal season with today’s unveiling of the Galaxy Note 8.Various leaks and teases have piqued consumer attention, which, frankly, is mainly focused on whether or not this handset will explode.All eyes will be on the new phablet, launching a year after the Note 7 made headlines when buyers reported the handset spontaneously combusting.Two recalls and a halt in production later, Samsung ultimately blamed the battery—which, according to iFixit, is “very, very similar” to the one glued into this year’s flagship Galaxy S8 and S8+.We’ll soon find out if the manufacturer has taken a different route for its next-generation Note.Early this month, serial leaker Evan Blass tweeted a glimpse of the upcoming smartphone, which looks like the love child of a late Note 7 and more recent Galaxy S8.Featuring the same wrap-around display and side buttons as the S8, Samsung’s new rectangular Note is expected to add an infinitesimal amount of screen coverage, and allegedly comes with a revamped dual camera setup—vertical, rather than horizontal.Specifics are still a bit murky, but Blass tipped a 6.3-inch display and the same Exynos 8895 and Snapdragon 835 chipsets as the Galaxy S8, plug 6GB of RAM.Samsung last week teased fans with a Galaxy Note 8 promo video, inviting folks to #DoWhatYouCant with the series’ defining feature: the S-Pen stylus.Today’s invite-only Galaxy Unpacked event begins at 11 a.m. ET in the Big Apple. Those not in attendance can livestream the launch via Samsung’s website or YouTube page. Or, follow along with the special Unpacked 2017 mobile app for iOS and Android.Also keep an eye out for software updates, especially following Google’s recent announcement that Android 8.0 will officially be known as Oreo. The latest OS comes packed with features like picture-in-picture display, Chrome autofill, and better battery life.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

As part of this initiative, the society continues to bring together pharmaceutical developers, the imaging community, biomarker manufacturers and regulatory agencies to address critical needs for incorporating imaging biomarkers into multi-center trials. A formal introduction to the Clinical Trials Network was provided at a two-day workshop in Clearwater Beach, Fla., in February 2009 and additional educational sessions about the network are planned for June during SNM’s 56th Annual Meeting in Toronto, Canada.”We are gratified to have Genentech—a pioneer in the field of developing targeted therapeutics—join us in this important endeavor, which we hope will broaden the scope and effectiveness of today’s medical practice and lead to improved patient care in the near future,” said Peter S. Conti, M.D., Ph.D., co-chair of the SNM Clinical Trials Network and professor of radiology, pharmacy and biomedical engineering at the University of Southern California. “We are pleased that such an innovative corporate leader supports our mission of advancing molecular imaging and therapy.”The use of imaging in clinical trials can help pharmaceutical developers determine earlier in the development process whether a new product is clinically promising by allowing physicians to see and assess whether it is working as intended for a patient, explained Dr. Conti.”Molecular imaging is an essential component of such studies since it accelerates the development of promising compounds and eliminates those without apparent patient benefit earlier in the development cycle,” he added. “We hope that Genentech’s collaboration with SNM will help improve patient treatment worldwide.”For more information: www.snm.org/clinicaltrials.

become a Personal Travel Manger hereSource = TravelManagers Australia Enjoying the splendor of Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Zayed Grand MosquePersonal Travel Managers’ Great Dates in Arab StatesThe world’s largest hand-knotted carpet, a mountaintop restaurant and a souvenir one-kilogram box of dates were just a few of the highlights for TravelManagers’ Anne Maree Selmo on her CT Partners exclusive famil of Six Senses Gulf State Resorts.Selmo, representative for Edithvale in Victoria, spent ten days discovering some of the highlights of Abu Dhabi and Oman, including Muscat and Zighy Bay. In total, nine consultants took part in an exclusive CT Partners famil, which was Selmo’s first visit to the Middle East.“The sheer opulence on display in the beautiful mosques we visited was something I’ve never experienced before. At the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, we saw one of the world’s largest chandeliers, made with Swarovski crystals and weighing around 12 tonnes!” In royal company. Prince Andrew heard CT Partners was in Muscat and visited Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque at the same time!At the Grand Mosque in Muscat, Selmo was thrilled to discover that she was not the most prestigious guest visiting that particular day.“We had the unexpected pleasure of bumping into Prince Harry at the Mosque, which was a highlight for the females in our group as he walked past us.”Selmo says she found it very useful to experience these Arab states first hand, as it gave her a better appreciation of the cultural protocols to be followed when visiting holy sites.“It’s essential that females wear long pants (but not skinny jeans), long sleeves (but can’t be sheer material) and a scarf that covers the head – if you get this wrong you will be denied entry,” she explains. “Being able to give my clients really detailed advice about this sort of this ensures that they won’t be disappointed when they get there.”For Selmo, the famil was also a great opportunity to discover new stopover options for her clients en route to European destinations.Enjoying a cooling dip in one of the pools that come with each of Six Senses beautiful indigenous village style villas“Six Senses Zighy Bay is a great option for a stopover as it’s only a two-hour drive from Dubai or just over three hours from Abu Dhabi. The last five kilometers by road is an impressive zig-zag drive over the spectacular Musandam Mountains… or you could elect to do a tandem paraglide into the resort. And once you’re there, you just have to have a dip in the warm Arabian Sea.”TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager, Michael Gazal, says the exclusive famil was yet another example of the company working with CT Partners and key industry partners to provide high-quality ongoing product knowledge to PTMs.“We are very fortunate to have the support of suppliers like Six Senses and Etihad. They make it possible for us to provide really amazing famils to our PTMs, but they also ensure that our PTMs will come home with a really clear understanding of what a destination has to offer.”Selmo came home from her trip laden not with the almost-obligatory carpet but with what she describes as a shopping “must” when visiting the Middle East.“I brought home a one-kilogramme box of dates but they’re so delicious that I don’t think they’ll last long. Being able to pass on to my clients what I’ve learned about shopping, dining and playing in these countries is a huge advantage. Even if it’s something as insignificant as where to buy gooddates, it’s adding value to my clients and enhancing their holiday experience. And that’s good business for me.”For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599.
New drugs for multiple sclerosis patients are urgently needed and should be supplied by the government regardless of the cost, the multiple sclerosis association said on Wednesday.Speaking on the occasion of World Multiple Sclerosis Day, the head of the association Savvas Christodoulou said that around 2,000 people suffer from the degenerative disease of the brain and spinal cord in Cyprus, though a lack of patient records means the exact numbers are not known.Christodoulou stressed the association was very concerned about the delay in introducing new drugs.“The system of introducing new drugs is long delayed and that is very unpleasant for patients who depend on our therapies, and the inclusion of new drugs in the state catalogue should be reviewed in order to access newly approved therapies as soon as possible,” he said.“However expensive these medicines, if administered correctly, they will not burden the state budget, as disability benefits will not have to be paid.”When a drug exists and can be used to slow the progression of a disease and provide a better quality of life for the patient, then it is the duty of the state to help, he added.He explained that a re-evaluation of specific medicines has been one demand in their negotiations with the health ministry and free MRI diagnostic tests for all multiple sclerosis another.Patients receive some free treatment either in the private sector, in public hospitals or at the Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics.The head of the association thanked the labour ministry for an annual state subsidy which covers part of their expenses.Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou assured multiple sclerosis sufferers and their families of the ministry’s support.You May LikeRocketGeeksThis Is How Much These Marvel Cinematic Universe Actors Are WorthRocketGeeksUndomydayoff.meTop 10 Luxury Bicycles Created by Car Brandsmydayoff.meUndoCBS NewsThe Best Movies Of 2018CBS NewsUndo Iran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoUK plays Brexit hardball with ‘stubborn’ EUUndoState Legal Service condemns attack on attorney-generalUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
