>Kolkata: “Ashamed” at seeing the Sri Lankan cricketers donning pollution masks while playing in the national capital, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said it is high time the Delhi government took a call on the situation.

>“It’s not a good scene that the a visiting team is playing an international game wearing masks. Pollution is worsening everyday. This is not earning a good name for the country. I think Delhi must control pollution. Delhi must sit together and decide on it (pollution issue),” Banerjee told reporters at the state secretariat.

>Banerjee said she was speaking on it because the pollution in Delhi was a genuine issue. “I felt very ashamed (seeing the Sri Lankan cricketers wearing masks) otherwise I would not have said this...This is not a political issue but a genuine issue,” the chief minister said.

>The Sri Lankan cricket team on Sunday took to the field wearing anti-pollution masks while fielding on the third day of the Kotla Test against India, complaining of poor air quality that forced the hosts to declare their innings.
Well they eat curry and then shit it out in the street. USE THE GODDAMN TOILET and maybe your city won't be polluted. Fucking curryniggers.
Calm down cunt

Yes he needs to calm down and learn to communicate like an adult, but he's still right.
Well, what can I say. Facts are facts.

Maduro on Sunday announced the creation of the "Petro", Venezuela's official cryptocurrency "to advance in the matter of monetary sovereignty, to make financial transactions and to overcome the financial blockade".

"Venezuela announces the creation of its cryptocurrency, the Petro; this will allow us to move towards new forms of international financing for the economic and social development of the country," Maduro said during his weekly television program, broadcast on the state channel VTV.

"The objective is to advance in the Venezuelan economy and overcome the financial blockade, this allows us to continue in the economic and social development supported by Venezuelan riches," said the president, explaining that his government will make a cryptocurrency issue "backed by reserves of Venezuelan gold, oil, gas and diamond wealth."

Meanwhile in Russian Crimea


GENEVA — Russia has committed “multiple and grave” human rights abuses in Crimea since reclaiming the territory three years ago, the United Nations said on Monday, including arbitrary arrests, torture and the imposition of Russian citizenship on residents of the former Ukrainian region.

United Nations investigators have documented evidence of arbitrary detentions, torture and abductions since Russian troops annexed the Crimean Peninsula, according to a report presented in Geneva on Monday and linking abuses to the Federal Security Service, Russian police officers and a paramilitary group.

Hey OP.

Suck dicks and die.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said Scotland should be allowed to "effectively stay in the single market" following reports that Northern Ireland and the Republic could maintain regulatory alignment after Brexit.

A leaked draft of plans for the Irish border after Brexit showed British and Irish officials had agreed proposals that would effectively keep Northern Ireland in both the single market and customs union after Brexit by retaining EU regulations - unlike the rest of the UK.

The SNP leader seized on the news as a sign that Scotland could also remain in the EU trade agreements after Britain leaves the bloc, something the pro-independence party has been pushing for since the referendum.

Sadiq Khan also weighed in to the row to call for a bespoke deal for London, as the capital also voted overwhelmingly in favour of staying in the EU.



>Archaeologists recently unearthed a curious artifact in California: An Egyptian sphinx.

>Unlike the Great Sphinx of Giza, which was made of bedrock, this sphinx was made from plastic. And it wasn't carved by the ancient Egyptians, but molded by designers on the set of Cecil B. DeMille's 1923 biblical film The Ten Commandments.

>The film featured thousands of actors and actresses, and the director commissioned famed art deco designer Paul Iribe to construct an ancient Egyptian palace for the film's backdrop. Iribe's final product was the largest set design of its time and included more than 20 sphinxes.

>After filming was complete, the 12-story set was too expensive to dismantle —and too valuable to leave for rival film studios to pilfer. In a move just as ambitious as his filmmaking, DeMille, who created a second version of the film in 1956, ordered the set buried at a location unknown to the public.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Monday Russian President Vladimir Putin had taken a decision to hold off responding to new U.S. sanctions last year independently and had not been influenced by former U.S. national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors delving into the actions of President Donald Trump’s inner circle before he took office.

U.S. prosecutors said Flynn and Sergei Kislyak, then Russian ambassador to the U.S., last December discussed economic sanctions that the Obama administration had just imposed on Moscow for allegedly interfering in the U.S. presidential election, something Moscow denies.

Obama at the time expelled 35 Russian diplomats and the U.S. authorities seized two Russian diplomatic compounds in the United States.

But Putin said he would wait to see how relations developed with the new Trump administration before responding. Russia only went ahead and took retaliatory measures this summer.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin had taken the decision to hold off retaliating independently and had not known of Flynn’s alleged request to Russia to refrain from an immediate response.

Flynn was not in a position to ask Kislyak, the then Russian Ambassador to the U.S., to do anything, said Peskov, calling the idea “absurd.”

The Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, Prof. Musibau Akanji, has described as baseless rumour, the proposed hike in tuition fees by 38 federal universities.
Akanji said there is no plan to hike the tuition fees of federal universities in the country.
He said that the university management condemned the allegation in all its totality, stating that the rumour was meant to cause panic and confusion.
In a statement signed by the university Deputy Director of Information, Mrs. Lydia Legbo, the vice chancellor reiterated that the management of FUT Minna does not collect tuition fees from its students, adding that what the students pay are minimal fees charged for other services.



>Someone’s in a good mood.

>As the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election moves closer to President Trump’s inner circle, the man reportedly pressured by Trump not to charge ex-national security advisor Michael T. Flynn has been posting online famous quotes about truth and justice.

>Former FBI Director James B. Comey posted on Instagram Saturday a photo of sunlight reflecting off the waters of Long Island Sound and paraphrased a saying often attributed to the Buddha: “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun; the moon; and the truth.”

>Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts in December with Russia’s ambassador in Washington at the time.

>Comey seemed to be feeling vindicated by the news.

>Hours after special counsel Robert S. Mueller III announced on Friday that Flynn would cooperate with investigators, Comey shared a photograph of waterfalls and quoted from the biblical book Amos, writing: “But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”

>Comey was fired as FBI director in May. In February, the day after Trump fired Flynn for lying to the vice president and to the FBI, Trump reportedly asked Comey whether he could see his way “to letting Flynn go.” Comey wrote down Trump’s comments in notes he made after the Feb. 14 meeting.

German architect Marc Wübbenhorst has to drink at least 20 liters of water a day or risk dying from dehydration. The 35-year-old suffers from the rare metabolic disease Diabetes insipidus, which causes intense thirst and the frequent excretion of large amounts of diluted urine. If Wübbenhorst stops drinking water, his body starts to dry out, and he can die of thirst in a matter of hours.

Constant thirst has been a part of Marc Wübbenhorst’s life for as long as he can remember. It’s nothing like the thirst a normal person experiences, because it doesn’t go away after drinking a glass or two of water. His body can’t hold any water, as his kidneys eliminate the fluids almost as fast as he ingests them. Marc can never ignore his thirst for more than an hour, because he starts to experience severe symptoms of dehydration, like cracked lips, dizziness and confusion. These are symptoms that most adults experience after two or three days of fluids deprivation.
Although Diabetes insipidus can develop at any point in life, Wübbenhorst was born with the condition. As a child, he managed his condition relatively well, he had lots of friends and tried to live a normal life, but at one point it got too much, and he fell into a deep depression.

“I had a kind of exhaustion depression,” Marc told Neue Westfälische. “I did not want to go to kindergarten, paint anymore, or see the lantern parade.”

Each day in Marc Wübbenhorst’s life begins with a big bottle of water to fill him up, but it doesn’t last long, as he soon has to go to the bathroom. It’s even harder at night, and the 35-year-old admits that he has never slept for more than two hours at a time in his whole life. He constantly has to get up, hydrate and than go to the bathroom to excrete all the fluids. In total, he visits the toilet up to 50 times in 24 hours.

He'll probably get stoned just like the rest of us.

THC is fat soluble, not water soluble, so as long as he didn't smoke weed all day then it shouldn't affect his hydration more than his illness affects it already.

That in itself is going to shorten this poor bastard's life span, to say nothing of the devastation to his quality of life. I'd wear a catheter and Depends 24/7 if I was in his shoes.
>tfw Bielefeld is a land-locked city

Must've pissed off Dagon pretty hard to get exiled that far.
Whether or not this condition could be treated with transplantation depends on if the cause is central (i.e. the hypothalamus isn't producing sufficient antidiuretic hormone) or nephrogenic (kidneys aren't responding to hormone). If it's the former, the only real option is management with ADH analogs, and generally speaking surgery is only on the table if it progresses to renal failure (probably due to the inherent risks of surgery itself).

>Electronic Arts has drawn immense criticism from the gaming community over so-called loot boxes and how they are implemented in Star Wars Battlefront II, but it is not just gamers who are speaking out. Belgium's Gaming Commission has determined that loot boxes are a form of gambling and is seeking a ban against them in Europe, and Rep. Chris Lee of hawaii is taking a similar in the United States. According to Lee, loot boxes are a form of gambling aimed at children and it is time to "draw the line."

>In a video showing Lee and others speak out against the current state of microtransactions, Lee calls to attention Battlefront II and the "predatory behavior" EA is engaging in. "It's a trap," he says, likening Battlefront II to a "Stars Wars-themed online casino designed to lure kids into spending money." As a result of the cycles that loot boxes create, many folks feel compelled to spend thousands of dollars on loot boxes.


>"These kinds of lootboxes and microtransactions are explicitly designed to prey upon and exploit human psychology in the same way casino games are so designed. This is especially true for young adults who child psychologists and other experts explain are particularly vulnerable. These exploitative mechanisms and the deceptive marketing promoting them have no place in games being marketed to minors, and perhaps no place in games at all," Lee stated.

>The reason Lee and others who share his position view loot boxes as a form of gambling is, in part, because of the randomized content. A player could pay money for a loot box only to be disappointed by what it contained, and then feel compelled to try again.

Shit, if you want to ban addictive things, you might as well ban video games as a whole, unless you haven't noticed an epidemic of children spending 99% of their free time in front of a TV or monitor while growing up to become NEETs.
I think they should ban micro-transactions as a whole because of bait and switch laws.
First it was with free to play games whch was ok because basically it was a type of shareware, give it a try and if you like it you can pay.
Then it was paid MMO's which again was ok because the were very up front about micro-transactions being in the game.
But now they are randomly spread amongst the paid singleplayer games and they mostly do NOT disclose on the store page that there are additional microtransaction things you need to buy to have the complete game; I'm ok with dlc, you can see what dlc is availavle and how much it cost before you buy, but but they hide that a game has micro-transations and Steam for example will not allow customers to add a micro-transaction tag to the tags a game has; this is bait and switch pure and simple

Finaly they are doing to do something usefull

>form of gambling aimed at children

God damm it.
How exactly is this any different than the millions of mobile games that have been around for a decade doing exactly this? How is it any different from MTG or Pokemon booster packs, or baseball cards before that. Will these people ever stop grasping at straws hoping to find a cause among them?

That is what it's *claimed* he did.

Hell take a shot at playing the next Ghengis Khan if given half a chance.
Dude officially restored the old Soviet national anthem after he took power "with new words"... but of course rewritten by the original composer.

His job before he became president essentially boiled down to hunting, torturing and killing anyone threatening their Communist system of government.

Hes made many comments over the years alluding to his desire to restore the old Soviet glory days and it's no surprise to anyone who actually studies him. Hes certainly still got ambitions toward northern Europe, that's for sure.

Considering these facts, calling out their online bullshit for being commie quackery is quite fitting in my opinion.

>In June, the artist Jeanette Hayes posted a video to her Instagram on the last day of her sold-out exhibition at New York’s Romeo gallery to show some of the anime-influenced drawings on view.

>A user zoomed in on the corner of one of the drawings on Hayes’s Instagram feed and noticed that a detail of tentacles extending from young girls’ faces almost exactly matched that of a work by Japanese artist Shintaro Kago. They posted a screenshot of the detail to Reddit and 4chan and accused Hayes of image theft.

>“It was wildfire,” Hayes said of the online fury that spiraled from there. “I’d look down at my phone and it was like, ‘Kill yourself, kill yourself,’” she said. Eventually, she muted the notifications, which numbered in the “thousands and thousands.”

>Hayes said she had pulled the image off of Tumblr years ago, as she often does, and never checked its original source. “My drawings are complex, it’s not just a 1:1 of other people’s work,” she said. Renderings of Bart Simpson, Hello Kitty, and other pop culture characters appear elsewhere in the drawing. “The show was called ‘Jeanettically Modified’ because it was all these things I was putting together.”

>But the online commenters did not seem to care about the history of appropriation art or the doctrine of fair use in US copyright law. They continued reposting the offending details of Hayes’s drawings, rather than their entirety.

Seen it.

You don't say. Guess you missed the commie faggotry eh?
wait, what if refusing to credit the artists was like, part of the art?

popular culture art is never insightful


>WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump's rally in Missouri this past week was a set-piece of distortion about taxes and the economy. He compounded his growing legacy of false tales on Twitter, where he spread a British fringe group's factually twisted propaganda aimed at stirring hate and fear of Muslims.

>A look at statements from his rally Wednesday, the anti-Muslim propaganda he retweeted and more:

>TRUMP describes the tax overhaul as "the biggest tax cut in the history of our country - bigger than Reagan," and says of lawmakers: "For years they have not been able to get tax cuts, many, many years since Reagan."

>THE FACTS: Trump is just wrong.

>Not only have there been multiple tax cuts since President Ronald Reagan, but Trump's cuts are nowhere near the largest in U.S. history.

>An October analysis by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget found that it would be the eighth biggest since 1918. As a percentage of the total economy, Reagan's 1981 cut is the biggest followed by the 1945 rollback of taxes that financed World War II. Trump's plan is also lower than cuts in 1948, 1964 and 1921.

>Post-Reagan tax cuts also stand among the historically significant: President George W. Bush's sweeping cuts in the early 2000s and President Barack Obama's renewal of them a decade later.

Come on guys throw off your fedoras and talk shit to each other like real internet tough guys. Get mad, get revenge. Do it for the lols.

Neither of you have even mentioned what SEAL Teams you're with. Combat is just weakness leaving the body, come on get to it we wanna see some fucking blood.
It's not new information that Trump lies daily and doesn't know how to do his job, it'll be big news when conservatives can admit that he's an incompetent clown. There's more than enough hard evidence out there for any halfway reasonable human to see that this is the worst administration in our nation's history, but all that evidence doesn't mean a thing when half the nation is blind by fanaticism

We shouldn't normalize it though. We shouldn't get to the point where the President of the United States doing something blatantly incompetent or deceitful is not important news and treated as such. This attitude may not mean much now, but it will in a few months or years.
Hasn't this meme been dead for a quarter century?

No, unfortunately commie propaganda is a real thing, just like our own propaganda. The only thing that's changed is the commies have rebranded themselves just as we have.

What hasnt changed is that in spite of real commie propaganda, most of what is labled such isn't really commie propaganda... it's just a label for lazy people to attack anything that don't like with.

>ABC News issued a correction Friday on a report published earlier in the day that stated former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was instructed by President Trump to contact Russians while Trump was still a candidate.

>Instead, the "clarification," later changed to a "correction," noted that Trump's request came after the election – a significant detail as Trump would have been transitioning from campaign mode to preparing for the start of his administration, but still might put Flynn in danger of violating the 1799 Logan Act because he was a private citizen at the time.

>“A clarification tonight on something one of Flynn’s confidants told us and we reported earlier today,” Brian Ross said during ABC News’ “World News Tonight” on Friday. “He said the president had asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He’s now clarifying that, saying according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots, and then after the election, the President-elect asked him, told him to contact Russia on issues, including working together to fight ISIS.”

>Earlier in the day, Ross had said on ABC News’ “Special Report” that a Flynn confidant had revealed “[Flynn] is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate … ordered him, directed him to make contact with the Russians.”

A plague on both your houses and anyone who is dumb enough to play this bullshit game.
cnn is fake news

No it's not.

The National Enquired is fake news.

CNN, FOX, MSNBC and the others are mostly biased news.

Fake news is both 100% false and manufactured out of thin air.

Biased news may have fake bits here and there, but is composed of real events combined with spin that together serve to both inform and propagandize.

You have some unlearning to do my friend : )
Well said

Several lines the 36-year-old delivered Tuesday had been directly pulled from her poorly attended November 2 speech in Tokyo, where she attended the World Assembly for Women alongside Japanese President Shinzo Abe.

The recycled speech drew criticism from international news outlets, with Quartz India writing the headline "Parts of Ivanka Trump's Hyderabad speech sounded a lot like the one she gave in Tokyo."
