President Donald Trump has once again proved us why it was a mistake to elect him. He was being a hypocrite (as always) about the sexual harassment accusations of senator Al Franken. As stated in the article, " Trump, a veteran of sexual harassment accusations, scolds Franken", which talks about the hypocrisy of donald trump. As stated, "The photograph prompted Mr. Trump to tweet that “the Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words.” The president then suggested that Mr. Franken might have gone on to take more liberties with the sleeping woman." He is being so ignorant by forgetting the fact that HE ALSO ACTED THIS WAY TOWARDS WOMEN. As stated in the article, "The president’s decision to tweet about Mr. Franken’s case immediately drew comparisons to his own behavior as revealed by an “Access Hollywood” tape. Released by The Washington Post in early October 2016, just weeks before the presidential election, it revealed Mr. Trump talking in vulgar terms about women.Mr. Trump later apologized for his language on the tape, saying that “these words don’t reflect who I am.” But since then, he has described his comments as “locker-room talk.”" DO YOU SMELL THE HYPOCRISY!!! This right here is our president. He defends his statement by saying it was "locker-room talk", THIS IS UTTERLY DISGUSTING. How are we allowing this type of behavior from the president of the united states of America. He talks about women in such lowly ways, he considers them as objects, prizes, that you can put on the shelf. I miss Bernie. "Before the election, several women told The New York Times that Mr. Trump assaulted them, touching them inappropriately. Several others told the newspaper that Mr. Trump behaved improperly around them.In his tweets on Thursday night, the president went on to accuse Mr. Franken of hypocrisy, saying that “just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women,” adding, “Lesley Stahl tape?”How is he president? Please tell me. How is going off on Al Franken but doesn't go off on Roy moore? Because HE IS REPUBLICAN. This is disgusting. I really miss Bernie.


Apple has delayed the launch of its smart speaker. As written in the article, " Apple delays launch of smart speaker", the company is trying to compete with google and amazon. As stated in the article, "The electronics giant said the device, which was due to be released in December this year, still needed development work.It said the HomePod would be ready to go on shop shelves in the US, UK and Australia "early in 2018".The news is a blow to its plans to take on rivals Amazon and Google in the growing market for home devices that use AI to help consumers." In other words its trying to be in the new wave of technology in order to get money ( by making it very expensive). Furthermore, this delay can cost apple greatly. As stated in the article, "In a statement sent to news organizations, Apple said the wireless speaker needed "a little more time before it's ready for our customers".The delay will mean Apple misses the lucrative holiday season during which many consumers buy gadgets as gifts.The gadget was first unveiled in June this year when Apple said it would go on sale in the US for $349 (£265). In the UK it was expected to cost £350." This can cost apple the opportunity to make a lot of cash, in a way this shows how the company cares about the quality of their products rather than just releasing and hope they do good just because the apple symbol is smacked right into it. Anyways, the article also states,"Like them it was designed to play music and act as a hands-free helper letting owners set timers, maintain shopping lists and get reports about the news, weather and other subjects.Since Apple unveiled the HomePod both Google and Amazon have added new models to their ranges of smart speakers, intensifying the competition with Apple."



Trumps ex member Mike Flynn has been offered by Turkey. As written in the article, "Ex-trump aide Mike Flynn offered 15 million by Turkey for Gulen". Mike flynn has been offered $15 million. As stated in the article, "Ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn and his son discussed the alleged plot with Turkish representatives, NBC News and Wall Street Journal report.The matter is said to be under scrutiny in the wider Justice Department probe into alleged Russian election meddling.Mr Flynn quit after misleading the White House about meeting an envoy". In other words they discussed the 15 million dollars! In article it also states, "Mr Flynn was serving on the White House transition team during the reported meeting, which came a month before he joined the Trump administration.He also met Turkish representatives in September last year, according to Mr Woolsey, a board member for Mr Flynn's consultancy.Mr Woolsey has previously told CNN that in September, "there was at least some strong suggestion by one or more of the Americans present at the meeting that we would be able, the United States would be able, through them, to be able to get hold of Gulen".NBC reported that federal investigators are also looking into whether Mr Flynn tried to push for the return of Mr Gulen to Turkey during his time as White House national security adviser.Mr Flynn's attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the BBC". It also states, "In 2016, his consultancy Flynn Intel Group was paid $530,000 for lobbying on behalf of the Turkish government - work which required him to register as "a foreign agent".His lawyer later said Mr Flynn did not register because he was working for a Turkish businessman, rather than a government official.Investigators are also looking into the actions of his son, Michel Flynn Jr, who worked closely with him at Flynn Intel Group".




War has always been a problem throughout human history. As written in the article, "Saudis declared war on Lebanon- Hezbollah leader", a war was just declared betwwen the saudis and the leader of Lebanon. As stated in the article, "Hassan Nasrallah said Saudi Arabia was holding Mr Hariri against his will.He also accused the Saudis of inciting Israel against Lebanon.The powerful Hezbollah Shia movement is an ally of Iran, which has been trading accusations with the Saudis of fuelling tension in Lebanon and the region". In other words he himself is accusing the saudis of doing terrible things. In the article it also states, "In a televised speech on Friday, Mr Nasrallah said Saudi Arabia was trying to provoke fighting amongst the Lebanese. "In short, it is clear that Saudi Arabia and Saudi officials have declared war on Lebanon and on Hezbollah in Lebanon, but I have to say this is a war on Lebanon," he said.Mr Nasrallah also accused Saudi Arabia of being prepared to pay "billions" to Israel for a military strike against Lebanon, describing this as the "most dangerous thing". In the same article it also states, "t the weekend the Hezbollah leader had said that Mr Hariri had been forced to resign by the Saudis, but he repeated the allegations on Friday, saying that this was now "beyond any doubt".Saudi Arabia was attempting to remove Mr Hariri as prime minister and impose a new leadership on his political movement, he said.BBC Middle East editor Sebastian Usher says Mr Nasrallah's words were delivered as calmly as ever - but they will inevitably raise the temperature further as a growing number of countries outside the region try to calm the crisis."




Unwanted thoughts have always been a problem with mankind, but dont fear scientists are here with an elaborate explanation on why this happens. As written in the article, "Scientists find key to unwanted thoughts", scientists explain the reasons why the brain does this. One reason is because there is a region in the brain thats responsible with memory, as stated in the article, "They have identified a chemical in the brain's "memory" region that allows us to suppress unwanted thoughts.The discovery may help explain why some people can't shift persistent intrusive thoughts - a common symptom of anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and schizophrenia". Ou brain is at fault with us being in a bad mood and having mental issues. Another reason is because of our neurotransmitter, as stated in the article, "Gaba is the brain's main "inhibitory" neurotransmitter. That means, when it's released by one nerve cell it suppresses the activities of other cells to which it is connected. They found people who had the highest concentrations of Gaba in their brain's hippocampus (or memory hub) were best at blocking unwanted thoughts or memories". In other words, our neurotransmitter suppress the activities of other cells causing us to have unwanted thoughts going through our head. One last reason is because our strong ability of being self conscience, as stated in the article, "Researchers say controlling our thoughts is "fundamental to wellbeing".




Science has truly changed our lives, from the way we think to the way we hold ourselves. As written in the article, "How science transformed the world in 100 years" by BBC, we the various changes in life due to science! One example would be the creation of the Gps, as stated in the article, "The GPS in a smart phone depends on correcting the time from satellites using both the special and general theories of relativity - theories that people once thought would have no practical value. I wonder how many understand all the discoveries that make the little box work". The Gps has really changed our lives without us knowing it, navigation is now more simple than ever, and we take it for granted! Furthermore science has helped us with the creation of computer, as stated in the article, "Today, much of how we see the world is through an electronic screen. Computers in all their many guises are sources of knowledge, but they are also increasingly how we present ourselves to the rest of the world, and how we interact with others". Computers have made our lives more easier than ever before, we can know communicate with people around the world in minutes! Unlike 100 years ago where we had to write letters and it would take days or months to deliver. Lastly, science has helped us go to space, as stated in the article, "From the Apollo missions to the Cassini probe, the Hubble telescope to the search for gravitational waves and exoplanets - all of those breakthroughs seem to be making us more inquisitive about space".




Former President Donald Trump has recently embarked on a eleven day trip to Asia. As written in the article, "Donald Trump embarks on marathon tour of Asia" by BBC, we see the reasons why our "dear" president would make such decision. Various elements came into play such as the threat of North Korea. As stated in the article, " The trip comes at a time of heightened tensions with North Korea over its nuclear programme and missile tests", the president finally seems to be worried about the North Korea threat and is at last taking action towards this meddling problem. Furthermore, he will use this trip to visit US military complex, as stated in the article, " He is, however, to visit Camp Humphreys, a US military complex south of the capital, Seoul". In other words he will visit some military troops in Seoul which further adds validity to his decision. The last reason why he is making this eleven day trip in Asia is because he will do a summit of South East Asian nations. As stated in the article, " His final engagement will be a summit of South- East Asians nations in the Philippine capital, Manila".




The Spanish prime minister did not tolerate Catalonia independence. As written in the article," Catalonia independence: Rajoy dissolves Catalan parliament" by BBC news we the controversy that is taken place in this historical day. Mariano Rajoy ( the current prime minister of Spain ) has fired Catalan leader Charles Puigdemont and his cabinet knowing that its a risky move. As stated in the article, " Spains prime minister may have hoped warning Catalonia against declaring independence would be enough. Now he has to follow through on his pledge to impose direct rule, knowing this is highly risky". In other words, he is ready to take risk, this means that he values Catalonia and will do anything to control them. Furthermore, was a violent riot in Catalonia. As stated in the article," There is some sympathy for the Catalan cause, mostly because of the police crackdown during the referendum. But far louder are calls to prosecute those pushing for independence. Its a move which many spaniards, like their government, are convinced was illegal".




In the article, "Fidel's Hell" by Terrence Cullen and Leonardo Greene ( published in the Daily News ) the government of the United States has released documents that suggested the idea to kill Fidel Castro. As stated in the article, "... documents shed little immediate light on President John Kennedy's assassination but they did provide some quirky details about America's strategy to kill Fidel Castro". In other words the C.I.A was planning to kill Castro and they were very open about it, as seen in the letters. Furthermore, the documents showed specific ways on murdering Castro, as stated in the article, " Discussions about preparing a booby-trap spectacular seashell which would be submerged in an area where Castro often skin dived", one of the memos said. " The seashell would be loaded with explosives to blow apart when the shell was lifted". Strategicly plotting the assassination of Fidel Castro seemed to be a great interest to the C.I.A.




In the article, " Don's weak Rx ", by Denis Slattery ( published in the Daily News ), the former president, Donald Trumps, is being critized for the way he is handling the opioid epidemic in America. The current fund to get opioids off the shelves is currently at $ 57,000, as stated in the article, " The public health Emergency Fund currently contains just $ 57,000, according to the department of Health and Human services". In other words, this opioid epidemic is being held lightly even though 150 Americans die weekly due to this horrible addiction. Furthermore, the president has no knowledge in the origin of the opioid epidemic. As stated in the article, " An astonishing 90% of the heroin in America comes from south of the border--where we will be building a wall-- which will greatly help in this problem, he said". This can easily be contradicted with some experts being skeptical about the walls ability to fight the problem, given roots in painkillers prescribed by doctors in the United States. Doctors are indeed prescribing them left and right!




President Donald Trump has recently selected a politician to control NASA, resulting in mixed opinions in whether he has done the right thing or the opposite. As written in the article, “ Trump has picked a politician to lead NASA. Is that a good thing?” by Paul Voosen, we see the complications that resulted, due to this selection. Bridenstine was harshly criticized for his comments towards global warming in 2013 by stating, “ Mr.Speaker, global temperatures stopped rising 10 years ago,” he said. “ Global temperature changes, when they exist, correlate with sun output and ocean cycles?”. His lack of space exploration caught Marco Rubio attention and later went on to comment about the situation by saying that the agency should be led by a space professional”. His career includes brief forays into real estate and a rocket-racing league, which isn’t much considering the fact that he has never actually been hands on with a project of this magnitude. The last and final statement of the article is that many will expect that Brienstine, who has written about the commercial potential of exploiting lunar resources, could shift the agency’s emphasis toward the moon.
