    That's the one. I didn't know they could fly until I tried igniting them with my lighter. Usually I don't care if some bugs are crawling around my screened patio, but if they get inside my screen they get the torch.

    As with previous Clinton health scares, the details are a bit unclear. As one host called out Clinton for missing an interview, her spokesman initially said she “twisted her ankle.” He tweeted a picture of Clinton wearing a special boot during a separate appearance on the BBC’s “Graham Norton Show.” Clinton, who is about to turn 70, was able to make it to her interview on “The Graham Norton Show,” sporting a foot brace. But in that appearance, Clinton said she actually broke her toe -- after apparently running down the stairs in heels and falling backward.

    And what is the success rate of tribal societies without the support of a more advanced state successfully defending their freedom against a more advanced conqueror? Anarchist societies live in a constant state of war and violence, they may have smaller instances of tyranny and violence but they make up for it by having no respite, and they always give way to bigger nastier tyrants unless good people create a government to defend against it.

    I think Shah Jahan was the mad Ludwig of India, his son seized power to prevent him from bankrupting the kingdom with the matching mausoleum he had planned for himself, the Taj Mahal had already seriously depleted the treasury.

    A controversial Indian politician from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has called the Taj Mahal a "blot on Indian culture" built by "traitors". Sangeet Som, a lawmaker in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, was addressing supporters in the city of Meerut. The remarks, which come weeks after the famous mausoleum was excluded from an Uttar Pradesh tourism booklet , have sparked shock and outrage online. The phrase "Taj Mahal" was trending on Twitter on Monday. "Many people were pained to see that the Taj Mahal was removed from the list of ," Mr Som said on Sunday. "Is this history that the person who built the Taj Mahal imprisoned his father? "Do you call it a history when the one who built the Taj targeted many Hindus in Uttar Pradesh and Hindustan? "If this is history, then it is very unfortunate and we will change this history, I guarantee you." Shah Jahan, the Muslim Mughal emperor who built the Taj Mahal in memory of his favourite wife in 1643, did not imprison his father. He was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb until his death.

    President Donald Trump said Monday his administration will start to consider reforming the welfare system in the United States, saying that some people are "taking advantage of the system."The comment comes as the Trump administration struggles to get any sweeping legislation through Congress, despite Republicans controlling both the House and Senate. Trump failed to pass health care reform earlier this year and is currently working -- without much success so far -- to pass tax reform. "People are taking advantage of the system and then other people aren't receiving what they really need to live and we think it is very unfair to them," said Trump, flanked by Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during a Cabinet meeting. "Because some people are really taking advantage of our system from that standpoint." "We are going to be looking very, very strongly, therefore, at welfare reform," Trump added. Trump didn't say when this roll out would happen but said he would announce his plan "shortly." More at: http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/16/politics/president-donald-trump-welfare-reform/index.html

    Mississippi Republican Sen. Thad Cochran remains ill and won't return to his Senate duties Monday as was expected, his office announced. The 79-year-old's absence raises doubts about the ability of GOP leaders to pass a key budget resolution -- a vote is planned later this week -- that is needed to advance tax reform, a top legislative priority for Republicans and President Donald Trump. "Mrs. Cochran informed me late Saturday night that Senator Cochran has developed another urinary tract infection," said the statement from Cochran's chief of staff Brad White. "After a day of monitoring his condition, and on the advice of his physicians and other health care professionals, Senator Cochran has postponed his return to Washington. He will continue his recuperation at home in Mississippi." White did not say if Cochran might be back in time for the vote, which, while not formally scheduled, is expected to take place late Thursday night or very early Friday morning, but the senator already has been out for several weeks. Asked if the vote might be postponed to give Cochran time to recover, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spokesman Don Stewart said he did not have any scheduling announcements to make.

    A petition on the government’s official page about holding a SECOND BREXIT REFERENDUM about the terms of the final deal with the European Union has reached 100,000 signatures – this means that the government is obliged to debate discuss it in parliament. The session will be held on 11th December 2017. The original petition was set up with the following details: We, the undersigned, call upon HM Government to give the people of this country the final say on the Brexit deal negotiated by the UK and EU. This would be done through a referendum that would take place prior to the April 2019 exit date. The referendum would allow for three options: (1) To revoke Article 50, thereby keeping Britain in the EU (2) To reject the UK-EU deal and leave the EU (3) To accept the UK-EU deal and leave the EU

    Gazprom Neft Unhappy With OPEC-Russia Production Cut Deal Russia’s oil producer Gazprom Neft is ‘holding its nose’ to the OPEC/non-OPEC production cut deal because it has made the company cut its production growth targets, Gazprom Neft’s first deputy CEO Vadim Yakovlev told Reuters in an interview published on Monday. “The companies involved in this deal are paying a different price. The effect is equal for everyone, but the contribution of the companies to the deal is different,” Yakovlev said. “This is related to the market players’ ability to increase their output - we have such a possibility and have to ‘hold our noses’. Gazprom Neft makes a big contribution to the deal. For us, this is a very sensitive issue as it is holding up the development of our fields,” said the manager who noted that the company sees the deal as a short-term one. Gazprom Neft plans to lift its oil production next year, Yakovlev told Reuters in today’s interview. For the first half of this year, the company reported a 23.1-percent annual increase in net income, while oil and gas production, including such from joint ventures, rose 5.3 percent year-on-year, driven by production ramp-up at the new Novoportovskoye, Prirazlomnoye, and Messoyakha fields, as well as in Iraq. Gazprom Neft’s Middle East operations are of “strategic importance”, Yakovlev told Reuters, adding that the company plans to increase its presence there. At the Badra field in Iraq, production is expected at between 85,000 bpd and 90,000 bpd in 2018, to reach 110,000 bpd in the future. Iraq has not asked Gazprom Neft to cut production in the country, Yakovlev told Reuters. At the end of March, Gazprom Neft’s production at Badra was 80,000 bpd, with further developments planned.

    This month the U.S. Department of Energy announced an investment of nearly $1.5 million in projects to develop renewable energy from Hawaiian seaweed, following large investments in other parts of the nation in a new push toward the potentially groundbreaking development of seaweed-based biofuels. The $1.5 million will go toward establishing two large-scale offshore seaweed farms for development and production of biofuels. Of this hefty sum, $995,978 goes to Honolulu’s Makai Ocean Engineering for the development of an ocean simulating model to facilitate offshore seaweed farm design, Kailua-Kona’s Kampachi Farms receives $500,000 to develop an offshore macroalgae farm and test out different seaweed harvesting methods in search of the most efficient model. The recent investments in Hawaii are just one part of a recent energy trend toward biofuels. The DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) program is developing nationwide projects to establish a large-scale macroalgae agricultural industry under the under the Macroalgae Research Inspiring Novel Energy Resources (MARINER) program. In Massachusetts, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) was awarded a whopping $5.7 million from ARPA-E to fund two projects to further advance mass cultivation of seaweed on an industrial scale. $3.7 million of this will go toward the development of a breeding program for sugar kelp (Saccharina latissima), utilizing cutting-edge gene sequencing and genomic resources for the most accurate and efficient selective breeding possible, resulting in a 20 to 30 percent improvement over wild plants. For this endeavor, WHOI will work in conjunction with the University of Alaska Fairbanks, another MARINER project funding recipient that is currently developing scale model seaweed farms capable of producing sugar kelp for less than $100 per dry metric ton. The other $2 million given to WHOI goes toward developing a self-sufficient underwater observation system to monitor these large-scale seaweed farms for long periods of time without human intervention. This revolutionary technology is being created by a team from the Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering department. This huge push in funding and biofuel investments comes in the hope that seaweed could soon be used to power our homes and vehicles. According to ARPA-E, the U.S. could potentially produce 300 million dry metric tons of combined brown and red seaweed per year. Converted to biofuel, this yield could supply 10 percent of the nation’s annual transportation energy demand—a game-changing amount.
