But Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee and former prosecutor in the FBI, said his panel hopes to “look like idiots.” Trump’s tweet Wednesday morning accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones. “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” the president wrote. No evidence has now been presented to substantiate Trump’s claim.

Obama did in fact tap some of Trump’s phones during the campaign and transition, but he had no authority to do so. What has been widely disputed by the press is the fact that Obama used the same wiretapping powers that Trump has suggested he was surveilled on. During a recent interview, Trump accused former Obama officials of covering up evidence that he could have the President’s tax returns. “It’s important for us to get that out. It’s very important for us to get it out as fast as we possibly can because we’ve got to get it out in a court of law,” Trump told NBC’s Lester Holt. The White House on Sunday tried to clarify the president’s comments. “In a debate like this you don’t usually hear things like wiretapping that are so specific that you’re going back to Watergate and Watergate,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on ABC’s This Week. “But this is the old showbusiness ‘You’re the boss so you can do whatever you want.’ And it should be clear to everyone who has been following the president that he meant exactly what he said.” On Saturday, Obama said he wouldn’t provide transcripts of Trump’s phone calls. He said they were “unwarranted.” The New York Times wrote a follow-up story that reported: “The White House initially disputed the reports, issuing a statement that seemed to question the legitimacy of Mr. Trump’s tweets.

“The President was not under investigation as part of any probe,” the White House said. “He had nothing to do with Russian interference in the election. He had nothing to do with putting the finger on Moscow, so that’s a pretty thin reed on which to base assertions that the President was allegedly wiretapped…. The first thing our president should do is ask the Department of Justice to provide the American people the facts. The American people expect there to be truth, there to be transparency about any probe and any investigation.”

Former attorney general Michael Mukasey, appearing on ABC’s This Week , said Trump’s tweets were “a little ridiculous” and that officials would not have done it. “I will tell you right now, that the president as somebody who is in the position of the president, does not get to direct the FBI to do anything that they don’t think will add value and add value to the nation,” Mukasey said. “My guess is this has become very typical for what we call in Washington the bureaucracy, this is not unusual. But it is what it is.”

Former CIA director John Brennan has been called a “liar” by some after he said the Russian government orchestrated hacks in order to help Trump win the election (even though the FBI has declared an official investigation by the U.S. intelligence community into the Russian government’s role in the interference). Brennan then went on CBS’ Face The Nation and argued Trump didn’t need Congress to provide information on his wiretap claims. “There’s no reason why the president should be required to get a sitting senator or a sitting congressperson’s permission to get publicly accurate information that’s already publicly available,” Brennan said. “I’ve been the CIA director for six years. I don’t think so.” Other lawmakers, however, are skeptical of Trump’s claims that he was wiretapped. Rep. Darrell Issa of California said he wasn’t sure the president had been spied on. “I’m not sure I can comment on that at this time,” he said on CNN. Rep. Devin Nunes, the House chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said President Barack Obama “hasn’t been forthcoming” with any information on his administration’s wiretapping claims. Nunes made this claims during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press” with Chuck Todd. “At home, at the White House, right in the Situation Room: listening to the president’s phones and sitting across the table from the president – talking to him on the phone.” “He’s the head of state, he’s the commander in chief,” Nunes said, when pressed to confirm whether Trump was wiretapped. “I can only tell you a number of times that we have heard that before from different administration officials, that it’s not the practice of the president to interfere with the FBI investigation.”

To this day the US has no equivalent. The US legal framework for child abuse is antiquated, illogical, and deeply flawed.

In the UK there is a system that works rather well – it’s called The Children Today Act 2000. It requires all UK parents and carers to report to a professional. The child abuse referral team (CART), which has an excellent hotline number, works with the local police to prevent abuse. They do not just come around and harass parents, they work with the family or carers to discuss this with the child or carer, then make a referral so that the child or carer can go ahead and contact the appropriate professionals.

It’s a more effective approach to child safeguarding than a system the US calls the Protection from Hurt Child Act, which is less effective and less clear. The Protection from Hurt child act only applies to US children (and, to some extent, UK children, since it is only applicable to parents), but in the UK we have a much better system of reporting abuse – the Child Abuse Inquiry team (CAB), established in 1989, does the most good in the UK. The CAB works with the local police, the local schools and other groups that are involved in the child’s life, to support the young person. They do not just check whether the child is being abused, but also find out what else needs to be done, from changing educational and childcare arrangements, to meeting and discussing with local welfare workers the possibility of any intervention.

The CAB uses its resources to intervene with, as much as possible, any abuse that occurs in schools and early years care. It’s also good at spotting and exposing abuse which occurs before it leads to further abuse. This, I suspect, explains why the CAB was set up by the authorities, for the authorities.

There is one big reason the UK does far better: We have no child welfare law whatsoever. The UK is one of the few countries in the world which is able to put a system in place to deal with child abuse and neglect without a separate act of Parliament. The CAB and other child abuse committees work together, the CAB is the liaison between the police and the children and their families. It protects the child, it helps the family to understand what’s going on, and it makes clear what to do if they feel the professionals are not doing enough. The agencies involved are there for the children as well as the families.

The UK only has a few provisions in place. A very small proportion of parents are able to bring children into the system. Children who come into contact with adults in danger of abuse or neglect may be referred to social services. There are other safeguards such as mandatory reporting and training of social workers on how to identify and report child abuse. But there is no national system for child protection.

There were a lot of rumblings over the weekend that Prince Harry might have found his Prince Charming in Meghan Markle. While some speculated that he had, in fact, found the long lost love of his life on a plane, The Sun newspaper has uncovered evidence of a different kind. The paper tells us that Prince Harry was actually dating a lady named Princess Caroline. If the news is to be believed, her real name is the Princess Caroline Anne of Anjou.

According to the Sun, Princess Caroline Anne used to attend the Royal Society of Arts and was a member of the Royal Society of England. The Princess was born on May 4, 1926, to Baron Louis-Louis de L’Anjou (nee L’Anjou-Langjoo) and his wife, Countess Charlotte Blois-Duffin. If you have heard any weird rumours in the past about Princess Caroline, you might remember her from one of those things like The Invisible Man and The Prince of Wales .

The Princess was the daughter of Joseph and Charlotte Blois-Duffin. Joseph, born in 1921, was the illegitimate son of Gino and Charlotte Blois-Duffin who was a cousin of Charlotte Blois-Duffin’s sister and was the illegitimate niece of the Queen of Belgium.

Joseph was christened by a Catholic priest in the parish hall of St Thomas in St Thomas. Joseph had both a Catholic middle name and a Welsh mother. The name was pronounced ‘koh-shun’.

Baron de L’Anjou-Langjoo was a member of the Royal Society of Arts and married, in 1924, the Queen of the Bahamas. Charles Francis-Duffin, Prince Louis de L’Anjou-Langjoo’s younger brother, was a member of the same royal society.

The Duke of Gloucester met the Princess Caroline Ann of Anjou through a mutual friend and, from this event, Prince Charles asked the Prince’s mother to meet with him twice a year. In 1928, the Duke visited the United States and met the Princess in San Francisco.

The Princess met Prince Harry while he was staying with his cousin at the Palace of Westminster and he gave her a tour of the garden where they stayed in a guesthouse. This was quite an amazing occasion because before the tour even ended, Prince Harry asked her to marry him. Although she refused, she was determined to do it. It was decided that each party to be married should have one person to live in. Prince Harry was to live in the guesthouse with Lady Markle and her two children, Prince Harry-Prince Harry. It was later discovered that the Princess-Anne of Anjou had left it all behind and was living with Prince William and Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.

As it comes to relationships, Prince Harry was the only one around who had met Princess Caroline Anne and she was a much more interesting girl than he might have imagined. She was a wealthy woman, not to mention the mistress of the British Royal family herself! The Princess was interested in writing and had always been a lover of music. She had moved to Paris after she married her husband and began spending weeks in Paris. It was here that she made her first recorded track, entitled, “Tous les Vierges du Matin” (The Sweet Moments of the Day) that included the words, “Tous les Vierges du Matin, dans le monde!”. Prince Harry found this album very interesting and he continued to return to Paris. It was during the summer of 1937 that he attended the Royal Society of Arts’ evening. He was told an interesting story about the time he met Princess Caroline. The night before he went on the occasion he asked her directly, “What’s it like when you are on tour in Paris with the Prince of Wales?” She said, “It’s very interesting, isn’t it?” He replied “Yes, it’s great!” When he returned to London, he arranged for the London Express with the Princess to fly to Paris on September 4th. He was going to wait for her to return. The Princess made her plane return to London that night at 8pm.

During their two time there, he had met other royalty and their stories, as well as the people who had accompanied the Princess and the Prince, made for such an interesting evening. Here is the first story. The first story is that Prince Harry had met, in Paris, two girls in the company of Prince Louis de L’Anjou-Langjoo. The two girls were only 13 years old, but they had both inherited their parents’ French accent. They had a very distinguished relationship and were very popular. The Prince invited them into his room and they both showed him how to play the piano and a French language book. At this point, while talking amongst themselves, the two girls suddenly realized something was up and

So far, the updates seem to have landed in a much-needed burst rather than as a trickle. One of my early reports of the device had noted that at least five updates (over the course of a single month) had rolled out, a nice trend.

In the UK, some users have been complaining of new features that aren’t present in any of the Samsung builds, so it’s possible there’s a difference between beta and final builds. One of the bugs was described as “a memory leak bug”, and this is the one I’m seeing now. The problem is in the System Info screen, which is supposed to show the Android version (and the version to which that version is rooted). It says you have Android 7.1.1, but instead of the Android 7.0.0 Nougat version, you get 7.1.1 Beta. I’m not sure if this means there could be two versions, but if so, there doesn’t seem to be any way to check the beta against a final build for this.

Here we see a screenshot of the screen being displayed in the beta.

There’s no way of checking for the latest builds in the beta

If you’re having problems, or get a different image that you’re not getting from the official app, you can disable access to system info in system settings and then enable manual mode.

It seems that the “Memory leaks” bug is at least a half-a-dozen different bugs. If you have a Galaxy S10, and this isn’t working for you, then the best workaround is to back up your data and try to restore to the most recent build, if possible at a different location . . . with the original Nougat system settings app . The instructions here , and here are invaluable.

If you’re enjoying the Galaxy S10 from what I’ve seen, I’d be thrilled for you to share your experiences in the comments.

** Watch the first 30 seconds of this fight here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGtOM0U3CKs It’s funny how you grow a relationship with the person you hang out with in your room for two hours. Even better, though, when those same two things happen in two different places. That’s what happened when I played one-on-one with Choi Soo-Buk in Seoul, South Korea. It was my first Korean fight, I got in just about the last round. I knew she would be my toughest opponent. I would never be fooled into thinking she was going to let me pull off no show. She surprised me and knocked me down. I was like “What the hell!?!?” Anyway, when I got back on my feet I found out from Choi that she was fighting her boyfriend at the time, Jung Joon-sung. That’s his girlfriend. If you’ve seen any of his movies, you’ll recall that this guy’s a big deal in Korea. You might remember this kid from his big fight with Kizar. What’s funny is we had two fight videos that we’d both put on our iPhone’s. I got a couple of hundred views and I was a bit nervous, you know after seeing that many people on my Instagram showing support of me. The kid’s a big deal in Korea. You will be surprised at how many Korean’s he’s fought for, that’s for sure. I was like “Whoa! This kid’s a lot more successful than I’d expect, it just goes to show you the success stories are true.” You always want to thank your sponsors when you can. I had to go to one of the Korean martial arts schools and buy all their equipment. I had to get my own blackbelt in Korean wrestling, even though I’ve been training for a few years. I’ve watched all the videos of Korean wrestlers, and there’s nothing in the blackbook of an MMA fighter in South Korea. You have to go through a different path there. I had a few more tips for Choi: I’ve only had two fights by the time this fight started, so the game plan for Choi was to keep me behind the ropes. The game plan wasn’t one of making Choi pay, but of not letting me breathe. I’m a natural wrestler with a good base. I know how to defend her, and what will make her react. If I can be able to do that I’ll be on my way to being successful. That said, I told Choi to think of the opportunity as a win. It’s possible that some fights aren’t meant to go your way, but I wanted to keep going. If she doesn’t have a game plan for me I’m happy to just stand on the sidelines and watch.

This is what I heard that came out of the Korean Zombie’s mouth:

It’s not the right time, but like I said, I had a couple of fights for the company and didn’t want to pull any punches. I just wanted her to know I’d never give up, for her or anyone else. And that’s the way I did it. I’m going to finish this fight. It’s not going to be easy. I won’t get to take a victory lap or make any speeches in front of everybody. It’ll just be me standing on my feet for the remainder of the fight. It will be a simple decision, I’ll leave the decision up to her in the first round. So we’re going to be able see what moves her, because in the first round she’s stronger than I believe she’d be.

On the flipside, he does acknowledge that there’s nothing to be ashamed of about making “money” in the Octagon:

NoI’m not ashamed of making money in the octagon. It’s going to come out. I’m not making any special promise that I’m going to be undefeated and not die. It’s just that I never really saw myself as a fighter who would need to be taking money out of the octagon, and I don’t think people can see that. I’m just some ordinary Korean guy who gets paid to knock people out, whether it’s my opponent or friends from Seoul or whatever…I’m just going to stand there and see what happens. People forget that I didn’t even get up to fight, I just gave my life to this sport. Even then I was never thinking I would get paid. The idea of getting money isn’t even a thought in my head, not even for a moment.

The Korean Zombie went on to say his goals were to continue to have success in MMA, as well as just getting people to know who he is and where he came from. Here is where I would like to ask him what it took to get the UFC to come calling.

One of his biggest influences when he started training for MMA was a guy named Kim J

You are one of the lucky ones….

We also know that Amazon will be going after new devices too. They just released their new Android TV hardware at CES. We will be talking more about it as it gets closer.

It would be great if Amazon bought some of the major PC makers and made a PC or tablet. However, as we all know, they tend to do whatever they want and try things out. This is the nature of the beast. It’s nice that Amazon wants to stick to their guns and sell what they say… However, when it comes to making a good product the PC and tablet games have proven most lucrative as they are just cheap to play on.

There are now a few tablets out there that offer amazing functionality and a great price. Apple and Samsung have even released new tablets with big screens and incredible features that run well on Android. All you need to do is download the app and you will have an excellent tablet of ultimatepropergaming and productivity.

The reason why Google Play is so well received by the developer community is because Google Play is built from the ground up on apps. It doesn’t require you to wait until a PC has a game, it downloads the app from the Google Play Store and then lets you play it. If you don’t wish to wait until your PC has a game, you can build an app from scratch for it.

The other interesting element that is worth mentioning is that the apps themselves are free to use. In fact, some are worth $0.99 or even less. In addition, the apps do not require a PC to function. So, if you don’t want an expensive PC to play on the apps are for the average gamer just as well as a cheap Android PC.

I hope that this is just a preview of what’s to come in our next Android game. In short; I am very excited for my “First Play” at NAMM and I really hope that those of you with Android devices out there will check it out for yourself.

Best Regards,

Jeffrey Noyce

No sound quality from a subpar processor, but I appreciate the ability to record voice and send it over data. And yes, when I say I appreciate the ability to record voice, I am referring to the ability to send it to my assistant when I need it. A few times I’ve called Uber just to hear back. This is one of the few reasons that I didn’t switch out for another phone. It was the only device on the market right now that offered this, so I was happy. Of course, not everyone is happy with this feature, which I understand, but I can not complain. I have this phone for over 8 months, and I have yet to let it out of my hand as a battery saver or phone charger. It will charge itself all day long, no problems.

The battery life is what I wanted, and it’s absolutely remarkable how little it weighs after I’ve added multiple hours of video and listening to music. I have been hearing all day that HTC’s upcoming phones will have better battery life than our own Droid RAZR HD . When I opened my box on Friday, the phone was already dead; I had to unplug the cord that came with it to get it turned on. Yes, this phone is rated for 4X 4 cell use, but it can only go so far, with only the 3.75V battery that allows it to charge at 2.5A. But with this phone, I am happy to see so many different people commenting that they love playing Call of Duty and listen to music. I didn’t want a Moto X with the same software but a $800 price tag (especially if it doesn’t have LTE) and this phone is a pleasure to use thanks to the great build.

Now the battery problem comes into play; this is by no means a bad thing. It is simply a battery problem, which HTC has addressed in several respects over the past year and a half. The HTC One has a few of the best internal parts around, but this time around, the phone has a very impressive battery which I have used for months now with zero issues. This phone will last you 5 days on full charge and will probably get you through the day and most of the night once it’s on. There’s no reason to use the phone as a computer while charging (except if you have an external battery and you don’t want to carry it with you) and the included USB charger is very cool.

The battery life doesn’t end there, either. The main problem with my phone has been battery life from my computer, with some use. It’s a long, long way to go and I have no complaints here. It will last me probably 6-8 hours, depending on how active my computer is. The device’s 3.75V battery has the capability to last me through the day, which is terrific for an Android phone. I don’t even have to plug it into a charger! The 3.75V battery doesn’t drain fast, and when it finally drains, it gets even more powerful in under an hour, thanks to those TurboWatts. It takes a nice and long shower after 5 of these and you won’t have to worry about going to the bathroom. I have had to use the back to charge the phone, but it will do that in a few hours and it gets much faster. This phone is a pleasure to use, and if you have a Moto X running Android 6.0 and the 5.2 Marshmallow OS, you will love it. I am going to let you all in on a little secret. The HTC U11 and U12 have some great speakers. They are not as impressive as you hear in the videos on YouTube, but they really are. I listen to everything over sound in my audio player and I do not think it is a very good sound. It is a little louder than most iPhones these days, but it is still very good, and it is so good that I don’t want to get rid of it.

And after I get my hands on my new phone, I am going to install a second Android phone (the Moto X, obviously) and I will do some more listening to my Netflix queue on that device. I am not a very fast and reliable audio listener, but this phone has me covered. Yes, I am sad I didn’t get this phone sooner, but I was on my way and I wanted to keep my options open. Once I get the U12 and U11 on the market, I am going to see what you all think about them. I am going to keep this review as short as possible, but I want to go into what I like and what I enjoy. And then we’re going


The Chiefs have won their past four games, which has put them in first place in a wild-card spot at 7-1.

The Chiefs are riding a three-game winning streak in which they’ve outscored opponents by 47-29, a run that includes Sundays 34-21 thrashing of the Chiefs’ fellow AFC West contender, the Raiders.

Last year, the Chiefs trailed the Chiefs and Patriots by 16 points after nine quarters, including a 13-3 drubbing that sent Oakland to the playoffs (in which Kansas City went 1-2). Kansas City trailed the Chiefs by 14 points in the third quarter on two such occasions, but won in overtime.

The Chiefs did, however, drop a 23-18 decision to the Giants last Sunday, the Giants’ first win of the season. At home, the Giants were favored by 17 points over Kansas City, who were favored by eight.

It’s a tough division, but right now the Chiefs are right where they’re supposed to be, on top of the AFC West. (The Jets are 11 points ahead, but they’re still a couple of games back in the wild-card picture.)

Cleveland-based band Iggy is currently featured in their “I Got A Feeling”, which you can get through their web store

The band that had four members (two left) but still went by what people used to call the Scum/Easier to Kill crew is headed your way again .

In some ways, it’s like a “back to the basics” project with a new band because they don’t do their usual material live. But even though it’s a band that seems to be inching more into the mainstream , this is a band that shows a few things about the indie rock sub-genre: 1) It’s about doing the right thing, and being true to yourself, and 2) People do come together sometimes, whether it’s from the band or from other sub-genres, just because of the people they are and how you react to what they say and show when you don’t think you like what they’re saying. One might argue that Scum are a “bad band”, even though they’re not to be blamed for what happened . But they are at least responsible, for not taking their own advice and acting on the direction of the original band rather than following and responding to the other members.

There may have been a few cracks in the group’s armor at first, but it isn’t really necessary to just point to “Scum” as the source of everything good that’s come out of music in the past decade or so. The best part of what the Scum got right was taking their old album and throwing it into new and interesting directions, and the results make it seem like something worth exploring for many people. They changed their name twice, but the one constant in the whole project was that they listened to music and wrote music and were just doing it. They went in the opposite direction of how other bands went about things, and it was both the right and the right direction if done by the artists. That band took the band and the music and put those two things together. The Scum are still doing the same, just with new ideas and new parts to explore. We’re going to see something new and different and interesting from them for a long time to come. The songs may have been old, but the themes and the vibe and the energy got stuck in. The Scum were making us see that music can have an old-time vibe to it, which is really fun. As the old folks of a decade move on into the next with their new bands , the Scum will continue to do the same, just as their original band will continue to do what it does with a new, young, and innovative band in the next few years. That’s what makes the Scum such a weird and wonderful group. With new music to play and new places to go, what is there left for the Scum to go?

I say new because it sounds like it could be about me. But that would be too depressing for the mood. I could just be writing a story about the Scum and being nostalgic. That would not be cathartic. My guess would be that it’s a tale of those that tried and just gave up and gave up. Their songs may be over-written, but they’re still the real thing. I won’t tell you what happened, but I promise you that it’s worth getting your hair on fire. I should have added that there has been a very specific history in which the Scum have stayed out of the press, as to preserve their privacy. Most people don’t read about Scum because they’re afraid to. That is their gift, and it’s very real. As my friend, Tom Waits, said, “you don’t expect to see a Scum album in the bookstore and people assume the band is defunct.” We may not make records, but this is an important, important record and I hope you’re going to enjoy it. (And if it doesn’t happen, then it’s the band’s fault that we all left. Oh well. I guess I’ll just have to give up here and listen to “I Got A Feeling”. I like a good, old-fashioned romance, whether it’s Tom Waits or the Scum.)

The Scum had six guys and one girl. When they had songs written, demos recorded, and they could go to rehearsal and see other bands do them with them, they did all that and did all that and didn’t go anywhere. When they moved into their own apartment, they slept in their room for the first year or two, and that was before they met and started making friends. It was also before they were into the whole indie thing, and they had very little use for labels or the people marketing them. They were the band that wrote music with the people who wrote the music. They were the band that got a lot of attention as the first punk band in Connecticut. After that, they did things that were more like “fuck it” and moved on

Vaping, the medical-grade tobacco product that is much safer than cigarettes, helps individuals quit cigarettes, but this method of quitting doesn’t necessarily result in quitting the nicotine habit that results in people smoking. In fact, some experts say that it can lead to it. According to the NIH, the vast majority of vapers don’t “take up vaping in order to quit smoking.”

While it is possible, some experts believe, for an individual to get some level of nicotine from vaping, then the risk of getting addicted to nicotine and potentially dying becomes much greater than it is from smoking tobacco cigarettes. So the best way to help an individual quit smoking is to not vape, but rather to find a way to put down cigarettes for good.

You’ll be amazed to learn it is actually possible to stop smoking from vaping. “Smoking is the primary cause of preventable death in the U.S.,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Health called the New York Times. “Vaping is the next-best option.”
