To many industry insiders, these claims are largely hype. They’re not false, but they abuse the terms “autonomous vehicle” and “self-driving,” which evoke images of hopping into a car, entering a destination and disappearing into sleep, food or our phones.
That is not what we’re going to get by 2021. It won’t happen for a long time, maybe decades.
Poll: Clinton climbs to six-point lead in Nevada, ahead in Florida and New Hampshire - Hot Air Hot Air
There are four new swing-state polls out today and none are good for Trump, but this Nevada survey from Suffolk is the worst because that’s been one of his best battlegrounds all year. He hasn’t trailed in a poll there since mid-August, when Suffolk’s last survey of the state found Clinton up just two points in the midst of her big post-convention bounce. If you’re Team Trump, you were counting on that to be her high-water mark in Nevada this year, especially given how the race had tightened nationally earlier this month. As it turns out, though, she’s now up six — her biggest lead in the state all year.
One day I met a lady who was dying of cancer in a most terrible condition. And I told her, I say, "You know, this terrible pain is only the kiss of Jesus — a sign that you have come so close to Jesus on the cross that he can kiss you." And she joined her hands together and said, "Mother Teresa, please tell Jesus to stop kissing me.”
Mother Teresa’s outlook on suffering played out in her order’s homes for the sick and dying, which doctors havedescribed as deficient in hygiene, care, nutrition, and painkillers. Miami resident Hemley Gonzalez was so shocked by his volunteer experience that he has founded an accountable charity to provide better care. "Needles were washed in cold water and reused and expired medicines were given to the inmates. There were people who had chance to live if given proper care," . . . "I have decided to go back to Kolkata to start a charity that will be called 'Responsible Charity.' Each donation will be made public and professional medical help will be given," Gonzalez said after returning to the U.S. He also launched a Facebook page called, “Stop the Missionaries of Charity.”
Not to say anything negative about St. Mother Theresa, but I found this aspect of the Missionaries of Charity's work not my cuppa tea. I volunteered once, many years ago in the DC missionaries' hostel for the dying. I was pretty appalled by the standards of the place, not to mention concerned, maybe scared shitless would be a better term, that I might catch a dose of AIDS if I wasn't careful handling the various fluids and stuff I would have to as a sort of helper in the wards. It wasn't that it was filthy or anything; "casual" would be a better word. But you don't want to be casual when handling the bodily exudes of AIDS patients. Anyway, I never went back after the introduction for volunteers and had to beg off when the mother superior called me up.
Children won a big victory in Nevada on Thursday as the state Supreme Court upheld the state’s revolutionary education savings accounts (ESAs), the nation’s first universal school choice program. Note to Donald Trump: This is worth celebrating.
Nevada's a great state, but it's so damn hot.
In a looping debate rant, Mr. Trump argued that an increasingly “political” Fed is holding interest rates low to help Democrats in November, driving up a “big, fat, ugly bubble” that will pop when the central bank raises rates. This riff has some truth to it.
Erickson dug in, writing that Trump was “out of his depth” and lacking in “common decency.” But he was drowned out by Trump sympathizers with even bigger audiences than his own, like The Drudge Report and the online outlet Breitbart. It was one of the first salvos in what would open up in the year that followed into a civil war within the conservative media, dividing some of the loudest voices on the right. Days earlier, Erickson had unimpeachable credentials in the conservative movement. But by crossing Trump, he was now, in the eyes of his former allies, “a tool of the establishment.”
I haven't read the whole thing yet, but it looks interesting.
Strobl is not the only one to make such a change. Other new University of Michigan pronouns include: “His Grace,” “Her Royal Highness,” and “The Exalted Reverend Doctor Architect.”
Students go on to a university online portal and can choose from a list of existing pronouns, or they can create one of their own that better fits their identity.
What should worry the “globalists” of every party is that this revolt is not an aberration from our current trajectory but parallel to it. The forces animating Donald Trump will persist so long as Bill Clinton and friends insulate themselves, their families, and their government from the unvarnished, intemperate, uncouth, and entirely legitimate grievances of the people.
