What J.J. Abrams Sayed About Rian Johnson Has ‘ Star Wars: The Last Jedi ‘ Fans FumingJess Bolluyt More Articles While presidents kept some of the best-known campaign promises they also broke quite a few. Donald Trump is trying to do a pretty good job of keeping his. But how do former presidents-including Barack Obama, Trump’s predecessor-compare? Political scientists say that politicians usually at least seek to do more with changing circumstances than a lack of principles, according to USA Today. “Discover below the most famous promises of the campaign that American presidents broke. Check out the record of Barack Obama on page 13 on page 14 of Donald Trump and the specifics of how the two compare on page 15.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

As for expenditures, he was incorrect. Keystone Features / Stringer / Getty Images Pledge he broke: “We spend too much money solely on government services that are neither feasible nor necessary.” USA Today notes that Franklin D. Roosevelt blamed opponent Herbert Hoover in his 1932 presidential campaign for excessive spending. In a speech given during 1932, he also accused the Hoover administration “of being the greatest peacetime spending administration in all American history.” USA Today states that Roosevelt made those allegations “while economists now accept that more government spending was needed to pull the nation out of the Depression.” After being elected, Roosevelt himself followed this line of thought. But as Seeker states, “Roosevelt’s New Deal policies dramatically increased the federal budget deficit far beyond the rates his predecessor had accomplished.” Next: This president vowed to fix a non-existing problem. 4.

John F. Kennedy The truth had to face up to him. National Archives / Newsmakers 35th U.S. President Pledge he broke: That he would “finally close the missile gap.” USA Today states that some presidential candidates made campaign promises they never intended to keep. An example? The vow by John F. Kennedy to close a “missile gap” with the Soviet Union that he believed there was no. At that time, the Atlantic reported that the truth of the situation became clear to the president and defense secretary [ Robert ] McNamara when the Kennedy administration took office and provided the basis for McNamara’s assertion last February to newsmen that he had found no missile gap. Having the new administration to concede that was politically painful, but it represented the facts.” Next: That president vowed to stay out of war. 5. Lyndon B. Johnson

He was unable to hold Vietnam’s troops out. Keystone / Getty Images 36th U.S. President Promise broke: “We’re not about to send American boys nine or ten thousand miles from home to do what Asian boys should do for themselves.Promise he broke : “I have a secret plan to end the war.” Richard Nixon typically goes on the list of presidents who were actually terrible peopleran on a platform that opposed the Vietnam War. But to win the election he needed the war to continue. Nixon stalled the Vietnam peace talks before he gained office. After he became president Nixon expanded the war into Laos and Cambodia. That action resulted in the loss of an additional 22000 American lives. And Nixon finally settled for a peace agreement in 1973 that could have been achieved in 1968. Next : This president didn’t make any campaign promises.

7. Gerald Ford He never made any promises. | J.D. Cuban/Allsport/Getty Images 38th president of the United States Promise he broke : None because he didn’t make any. Axios reports that Gerald Ford was the only president to never be elected. History notes that Ford ascended to the presidency because Richard Nixon resigned as the 37th president. Ford was serving as a vice president at the time. But he became the president who came to the office through appointment rather than election because he had replaced Spiro Agnew as vice president just eight months before. Axios notes that that means Ford didn’t have the opportunity to make or break campaign promises like other presidents. “He never made any campaign promises to keep or break. He gets a pass” the publication explains. Next : This president promised to solve the energy crisis. 8. Jimmy Carter

The energy problem got worse not better under him. | Hulton Archive/Getty Images 39th president of the United States Promise he broke : “We simply must balance our demand for energy with our rapidly shrinking resources. By acting now we can control our future instead of letting the future control us.” Next : This president promised an amendment on school prayer.

9. Ronald Reagan

His plan for school prayer didn’t go anywhere. | Hulton Archive/Getty Images Promise he broke : “To put God back in the classroom.” USA Today reports that Ronald Reagan promised in 1980 to support a constitutional amendment that would allow school prayer. But as the publication notes that campaign promise “never went anywhere” after Reagan took office. Education Week reported during Reagan’s presidency that the practice of school prayer had been outlawed for 20 years. Reagan proposed the amendment in 1982 but USA Today notes that he never made its passage a top priority. Next : This president promised not to create any new taxes.

10. George H.W. Bush 11. Bill Clinton

He contradicted himself. | Stephen Jaffe/AFP/Getty Images 42nd president of the United States Promise he broke : “The era of big government is over.” Next : This president promised economic growth.

12. George W. Bush

The economy began to tank under him. | Timothy A. Clary/AFP/Getty Images Promise he broke : “What we Republicans should stand for is growth in the economy.” The Huffington post reports that on the campaign trail George W. Bush promised to cut taxes to create jobs. He managed to get his tax-cut agenda through Congress. But he saw “less than desirable results” from it. Bush said in his first inaugural address “We will reduce taxes to recover the momentum of our economy and reward the effort and enterprise of working Americans.” But the Post reports that he also failed to see his tax cuts translate into jobs. While his administration was in power the unemployment rate went from 4.2 percent to 7.8 percent with the country falling into the grips of recession.” Next : Barack Obama promised to close Guantánamo Bay.

Barack Obama He never closed Guantánamo Bay. | Alex Wong/Getty Images 44th president of the United States Promise he broke : “As President I will close Guantánamo reject the Military Commissions Act and adhere to the Geneva Conventions.

Sam Heughan defends fan over incident

The controversy started when a fan behaved as if he was going to capture Heughan on the butt while on stage at the Wizard World Convention. A clip showing the incident has been posted online and the moderator can be heard telling the fan No No No No. — Nicole s OL (@sassynachNicole) January 5, 2020 Several of Sam Heughan’s fans shared their disappointment about what happened in the comments. Many viewers from Outlander concluded that the conduct was inappropriate, but Heughan was able to explain what happened. Heughan wrote on Twitter there was no harm in that. Everything was taken off background. We were playing around on stage and being dumb. Never should have blown up like this. Heughan followed up with that by sharing a photo clearly showing the fan never touched him. For most viewers, though there were still a few who felt the incident wasn’t all right, Heughan’s remarks on the matter cleared things up. Appears but t. It is equivocal and dangerous. Don’t post unverified material again, please. You have a duty to that. Thank you @EW Some Outlander fans have pointed out that if it was a man who made an unwelcome move toward a woman then things would be different. Thankfully that was not the case and all involved parties knew that it was all fun (as Heughan pointed out). ‘ Outlander ‘ drops season 5 trailer During a segment on Good Morning America, humiliating mishaps aside producers have announced the first trailer for Outlander Season 5. For the new season, the trailer didn’t reveal too many secrets, but it set the stage for what was to come. The trailer features a first look at how all our favorite Outlander characters are preparing for the coming Revolutionary War according to Carter Matt. For example, Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger (Richard Rankin) are considering returning to modern times in order to escape the chaos of the war ahead. With the couple now raising their own child back to the 20th century a wise decision could be made.No big deal, in our dream home, just our dream family. # Outlander # STARZ A post shared by Outlander (@outlander starz) on November 25, 2019 at 1:06pm PST As far as Jamie is concerned, at the start of the new Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) season he will be grappling with some divided loyalties.

The Friendly Way Prince Harry Used to Flirt With Meghan Markle Stefan Preston More Articles March 11, 2019 Even before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were waiting for their brand-new baby that they had just met. Like many couples they began their relationship while still living from one another at opposite ends of the world. Markle was a famous Hollywood actress, and with his every step monitored by media cameras, Prince Harry was one of the world’s most scrutinised people. They nevertheless succeeded in finding common ground and communicating in an unexpectedly connected manner. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are a perfect match but how did that begin?Eric Robinette More Articles 30 July 2019 When Marvel revealed Natalie Portman and her hammer that Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie had become the first openly homosexual character in the movie. The fact that Thompson and Brie Larson had already exchanged love notes about their characters on social media has added fuel to that hypothesis. Figure 1 Brie Larson Jesse Grant / Getty Images for Disney

Valkyrie: Thor comes out. You need a King for your men. Thor: No they’ve got one already. Valkyrie: It’s just funny. Are you serious? Thor: It is time I was who I am rather than who I should be. Yet you’re a master. That’s just who you are. Valkyrie: You know I am going to make a lot of improvements here. Thor kind of got his wish when Thompson went to the San Diego Comic-Con stage and said that having her queen as King of New Asgard would be her first order of business. Cue rapturous crowd cheers. Another reason the cheers were so loud was because this announcement was true to the source material: in the comics, Valkyrie is bisexual. A scene that revealed this was filmed for Thor: Ragnarok but it was removed by director Taika Waititi because he felt it clashed with the scene’s narration. And so do the actors We cool @TessaThompson x — Brie Larson (@brielarson) March 18, 2019.Also when Larson was included in the list of the 100 most influential people in Time Magazine it was Thompson who wrote her entry: “Her advocacy is an extension of who she is. She sits at a table and is keen to ensure that everyone has access to it. She is constantly looking at how to become a better ally. She took a breather outside of an annual adult prom the first time I met her; next time she was having a discussion (complete with graphs and a PowerPoint presentation) about the lack of representation in the film. She has a great potential for both fun and serious work. “So if Marvel fails to get these two together soon it will be one of their occasional misjudgments. Just imagine what would happen if Larson and Portman Thompson were all in Love and Thunder.Also when Larson was included in the list of the 100 most influential people in Time Magazine it was Thompson who wrote her entry: “Her advocacy is an extension of who she is.

Dead or Alive shakur shakur? Michelle Kapusta More Articles View this post on Instagram @50cent get the strap y all see it A post shared by Suge J Knight (@sugejknight) on October 2nd, 2018 at 6:22pm PDT View this post on Instagram He never left us. They’ll soon smh after me. For y all , There have been several sightings over the years from people who say they’ve seen Tupac. Some were in Cuba but others were also in the U.S. Conspiracy theorists and those still alive who want to believe the rap music icon should accept Knight’s assertion that he is in Malaysia. Some think the younger Knight is out for publicity and knows nothing about what happened to Pac. Anyone who knows the truth is father to Knight. However, the former chief of Death Row is not thinking and is likely to spend the next 28 years in jail for the hit-and-run death of a man outside a Compton eatery in 2015. Knight Sr. reached an agreement with prosecutors in September 2018 and pleaded no contest for voluntary manslaughter instead of standing trial for attempted murder. No one has ever been charged with murdering Tupac to this day, although the investigative outlets from LAPD have floated their own theories about who killed him and why. One source told People that it was all an act of “gang revenge.” He became an enemy of the Crips gang when Pac signed with Death Row mark. To Crip founder Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, the night of the shooting Tupac the elder Knight and others got into a brawl in the MGM Grand casino lobby. Police sources said Anderson and other South Side Crips had been seeking revenge for the attack after that battle. It was easy retaliation: you mess with one of ours that we’re going to mess with the source clarified with one of yours. If Orlando had never been jumped into the hotel they would never have killed Tupac that evening. In 1998 Anderson died in a shooting of an unrelated gang. The Cheat Facebook Cover!Julia Mullaney More Studies Doctors stress the importance of having their children vaccinated to new parents every year. Each year, however, there seems to be another outbreak of infectious disease usually affecting people who have never been vaccinated at birth. Specifically measles appear to rear their ugly head in the United States at least once a year. But why do some parents choose not to have their children vaccinated? Experts come up with some ideas. 4/4.939 4/4.939 Vaccines aid with keeping children safe. Scyther5/Getty Images

Parents believe that vaccines do not work. Some parents believe that vaccinating their children is just a waste of time. The flu vaccine has been as effective as doctors had hoped in recent years. Yet some parents are equating a useless flu vaccine to other useless vaccines, such as the approved MMR vaccine for young children. Children will receive the vaccines though when they re young are extremely successful and efficient in preventing disease. They are usually effective between 85 and 95 percent and have re-designed differently than the flu vaccine, so it is difficult to compare them with it.

Parents are concerned that the risk of side-effects is too high

Vaccinations pose a very low risk of complications. According to the World Home Organization the real mortality figures are too difficult to determine because death — or serious vaccine injury — is extremely rare. Anti-vaccine campaigns, however, tend to run with the belief that vaccines are harmful, causing parents to doubt whether or not to vaccinate their child. Some parents worry that their child actually gets the disease outweighs the risk for death (which anti-vaccine advocates say is much higher than it really is). Parents believe that their baby’s immune system can t tolerate so many vaccinations

Some parents are concerned that injecting too many different vaccines into their babies can overwhelm the immune system and cause complications. However it is incorrect to assume that the child can tolerate t vaccines. While today young children receive more vaccines than 30 years ago, it is a perfectly safe method of vaccination and only protects them against more diseases. There are 15 different vaccines recommended within the first year and a half of life but they last about 15 months so it’s an incredibly safe method.

Parents think that vaccines contain too many toxins Anti-vaccination campaigns also promote the concept of vaccine toxins. Although the toxins in vaccines are technically true, they are used to make the vaccines safer (such as avoiding infection and keeping the virus in good working order) and contain only very trace amounts. Parents.com states that by merely breathing the earth’s air, the amount of contaminants in the vaccinations is much less than what any person can get. In no way do they make vaccines dangerous.

Parents claim that vaccines are only a way for the pharmaceutical industry to make money

Pharmaceutical firms have long struggled with the belief that new treatments, etc. are just a way to make money for them. Though pharmaceutical companies do make money on this which is not meant to vaccinate your child. To order to keep your child protected, vaccines are safe and effective. The risks are remarkably small and any form of anaphylactic drug reaction is a mere one in one million chance.Taylor Swift dates from British actor Joe Alwyn, best known for his role in the Long Halftime Walk of Billy Lynn.

Entertainment Cheat Facebook Cover! 9 Useful Tips for Picking Out a Smartphone

Mark KnappGoogle+ More Articles January 01 2016 Although many of us might only opt to buy some other manufacturer’s latest iPhone or flagship that isn’t always going to be the best choice financially. Even if that’s the route you’re going, you still have to make some decisions whether to determine which device to go with or find out how much memory your new device should have. This guide will be able to provide some assistance in making your decision.

1. Only think of scale

4/4.947

4/4.948 4/4.948 Source: Thinkstock The processor is basically a device’s brain although there are other components that also make up the brain relative to a human being. It will be important to pay attention to what you get. There are only two things you need to be careful about to think about processors in the simplest way: the number of cores and the clock speed. The speed of the clock tells you how quickly each core can process information. If you see clock speeds reported in megahertz (abbreviated MHz), you are likely to look back at an older system that has won t work to the standards of today. Cores of most quality run at speeds specified in gigahertz (abbreviated GHz). When you know the speed of the clock you can multiply it by the number of cores to know the device’s maximum processing speed to make a good comparison with other choices. Sadly this data can only be as useful as the processing power value often depends on how many demands the phone itself has. Some phones may have background programs that constantly take on some of the device’s processing power, making it a bit slower for it to perform certain tasks. If the devices you are looking at are narrowed down, you can test their benchmark ratings. Review AnandTech s scoresAndroid CPU BenchmarkiOS CPU Benchmark for comparison between devices with different operating systems. 3.

Understand memory: ROM RAM and internal storage

4/4.949 Source: Mark Knapp Read-Only Memory and Random Access Memory are both critical computing device components and are no exception in a smartphone; they also play a major role in brain analogies. Both are stocking details. ROM stores the most important information, and is usually faster than RAM, but is smaller if not internal storage included. RAM is unique for storing even more information and can store data on currently running programs or that the system is expected to be needed soon. To have a quality unit, of course you want these to be simple. However there are many different options for how to organize storage components in a system and the best thing to learn is how they apply to your needs. These days, RAM appears to be calculated in gigabytes for more powerful devices, and the more merrier. Multitasking memory is basically your computer. Every device that runs on a smartphone requires a chunk of RAM, and some “like games” need larger chunks. A share is also expected of the operating system itself. You want more RAM or a lightweight operating system if you want easy switching between loads of applications. If you’re not going to have to run so many applications, you can do fewer. Keep in mind that knowing just how much RAM a smartphone has doesn’t tell you all: you may just have to get your hands on a floor model and play around with mu
ltiple apps running and flipping between them to see how the phone actually uses its RAM. See here for more nitty-gritty details about RAM s tech side. It can be difficult to think about ROMs in smartphones. It will not actually be on any spec sheet for a computer and may be called internal storage. It might also not be easy to tell at which speed it runs, or if it includes multiple storage chips running at different speeds. The operating system will be stored on ROM, and applications may be mounted in other parts. If your phone has large internal storage, you shouldn’t have to think too much about ROM, but if there’s little space, it could be a good move to get your hands on the smartphone to see how much room there is for apps and more. 4. Consider external storage versus internal storage

4/4.950 4/4.950 Source: Mark Knapp Several “but not all” smartphones provide some internal storage while leaving a slot available for micro-SD cards. This slot helps users to greatly increase the storage space available on the computer at no high cost. Compared with the cost of upgrading from a device with 8 GB of internal storage to one with 32 GB, high-speed Class 10 32 GB micro-SD cards can be had for steal. Decide which route to get there will depend on your needs. If you don’t need a ton of different apps and are planning to use the room mostly for music or images then an SD card will do the job perfectly and be the cheaper option. Even if you want a lot of apps but only expect to use a few of them on a regular basis, you can usually store apps either on an internal storage or on an SD card so that you can store only the most-used apps on your phone while putting the rest on an SD card. You want to keep items in the internal storage for the quickest use of the app. Remembering however that the last segment on ROM can be difficult to determine the exact sizes and speeds of the internal storage and may require some work on individual phones. 5.

Know the connectivity options to your network

6. Operating systems and applications know what’s going on in

4/4.952 4/4.952 Apple’s iOS OS has functionality on its hand. It’s known for ease of use and is likely to be a good choice for people who don’t think they’re tech-savvy and worry about getting a smartphone. Also the program is quite consistent across devices so if you run into problems another person with iOS might be able to help you out with ease. The operating system is also known to make better use of its resources so an iPhone with less RAM and a weaker CPU than another computer could still manage it better and run smoother. One of iOS’s disadvantages is the restrictive environment that restricts users in a variety of ways, such as requiring the use of iTunes to add music instead of enabling other players to play. As of October 2014 the iOS App Store had over 1 million applications so it should be easy to find software for just about anything. 4/4.953 4/4.953 Source: Google But there’s nothing about Android that makes things much more difficult for less tech-savvy users. Though Android is known for its versatility and customizability, this complexity can be easily looked at in a beneficial light. Although iOS is designed to work in a way that allows Android to work a lot of different ways. If you want to change your keyboard from QWERTY to DVORAK or you want to make a quick phone end shake a phone call or start a text message there’s probably a way to do it. Fragmentation is Android’s main downside, meaning one smartphone running Android 4.4 could function differently and look different from another Android 4.4 phone running. Similar to Android’s iOS, Google Play App Store has over 1 million applications and won t abandon users who want more. 7.

Check the displays and know what they say

4/4.954 4/4.954 The thing you’re going to communicate with the most is the touchscreen of a smartphone. It depends on your choice of computer whether it’s pretty or plain bright or dim oily or clean sharp or cheap. If you are curious about the different screen types available, such as LCD and AMOLED, use this guide for each of the advantages and disadvantages. You can experience capacitive resistive multitouch or any other number of types of touchscreens in terms of the touch interface. You may save a buck if you come across a capacitive touchscreen, but you may find yourself with a computer that has trouble running down the line. Every type of screen responds to pressure, which means that you can click the button and find some wear and tear. Resistive touchscreens are common in smartphones and simply respond to the contact of conductive elements, whether light touches or not. A non-multitouch interface can save on cost if one can be found while multitouch offers much more in the way of interacting with the computer (such as conveniently zooming in and out). If you have big fingers a computer that supports a stylus can be helpful. The reality is that finding a good touchscreen will come down to how it will behave when you try it out in a store and what your uses will be for it: you can look at the sampling rates of the screen voltages and what else but simply testing a device out will probably be the easiest way to assess its quality. To be sure the touchscreen won t be a constant source of stress go check out the phone and test the keyboard to see if it types easily; also draw a number of straight lines in a paint app if possible to see if they stay true to your touch. Opening a Web browser and attempting to press buttons near certain buttons to see how well it works for you can be wise. If you are worried about oils on the screen or have a matt screen to make it easier for you to use your smartphone outdoors, you can find it built into your phone, but you should be able to find these features just as easily in the form of third-party screen coverings. These features don’t have to be a deal-breaker if you don’t want them on purchase with the product. One of the main issues about screen quality is the pixel density: how many pixels fit on an inch-long line. The more pixels the sharper pictures will go, and the better the show. High end computers have some approaching 400ppi with very high pixel densities. The fact is that most people in general usage won t be able to distinguish between pixels on 300ppi screens or higher densities than this may not seem all that different from users although they are likely to cost more. You can find that even lower densities of pixels look good enough for you and that will surely help save you some money. 8. Consider what other

4/4.955 4/4.955 Source connections and sensors you need: Gea.

There are a variety of other components that complement the smartphone experience and usually appear on high-end phones but may lack cheaper models. Here’s a quick breakdown of what they are and what they are doing to help you to cross them off the list of things you can or can live without: GPS: GPS is a must for the best navigation experience. While some systems may be able to find locations based on cellular or Wi-Fi networks, it is likely that the accuracy of GPS will be greater, which may be necessary to navigate city streets. Accelerometer and gyroscope: This measures phone movements. If you want a system that reacts to shaking and tilting you need to make sure the device has these components. If they aren’t, you may need to turn from portrait view to landscape through a variety of menus (watching video on your screen becomes a pain). Compass: You don’t have to know how to go with GPS. If you only need to know the direction in which a compass is going, it can be useful as it should use as much battery as a GPS receiver. There are many other sensors that a smartphone can have and some can be unique to a single device without any other device. Check to see what other equipment is bundled with the product you’re looking at so you can determine whether you need something or something you’re paying for but never using. When shopping for a smartphone you should have an easy time finding a good device worth your money, if you keep the
se things in mind. You know what stuff can drive the price up, and by avoiding things you don’t need you can save a buck.

Directed by Melissa Rosenberg (Dexter) the thirteenth episode drama will focus on the female superhero who suffers from a post-traumatic stress disorder and then wants to hang up her mask and open her own detective agency where she assists other superheroes as well as regular civilians. The upcoming series will mark the first time the character has been shown, although she has previously appeared in the Marvel Heroes video game. Krysten Ritter has been cast into the title role, as announced in December. For the role, the actress beat out Alexandra Daddario Teresa Palmer’s likes Jessica De Gouw and Marin Ireland. A.K.A. Jessica Jones will mark the actress ‘ grittier role while she won t be her first leading TV turn. Most recently she appeared at NBC’s Mission Control which was cancelled last year before she went on air as well as a short-lived ABC’s Don t Trust the B at Apartment 23. She highlighted her dramatic acting skills on the critically acclaimed Breaking Bad with her role as Jesse’s acerbic girlfriend. Now she’s set to show off her action-star chops in darker tone than her blockbuster movies about crime stories [ that’s ] more in the streets than in the clouds. In actor Mike Colter who is set to play Luke Cage, the series finds yet another lead. It is confirmed that Colter, known for his roles on The Following and The Good Wife, will be seen in several A.K.A. Jessica Jones episodes before eventually starring in his own spinoff. As comic fans may know, Cage began as an ex-con who had developed superhuman strength after experiments in prison. As he meets Jones his past memories will dramatically change her in ways she never expected. Former Doctor Who star David Tennant is also expected to play an important part in the show. The actor will portray Kilgrave as an mysterious character from Jessica’s past whose reappearance will have a huge impact on her. The character is speculated to be the main antagonist of the series, although this has yet to be reported officially. Joining the cast, too? HarperDarville will play Malcolm, a Jessica’s neighbor whose life will unexpectedly cross with the private detective’s, according to The Wrap Carrie Ann Moss. Moriarty plays Hope a young girl who becomes Jessica’s business partner. In the meantime Traval will play a New York City Police Department by – the-book detective. No premiere date has yet been set for the show but Netflix recently indicated it plans to release each of the Marvel series one year apart. For Daredevil scheduled to air this year that means that at some point in 2016, A.K.A. Jessica Jones will likely hit the streaming service.

Yet sadly it reveals just how uneducated some people are when it comes to wildlife and the great outdoors. One woman decided to venture out for a walk while on a summer vacation in Colorado — a totally normal occurrence for Coloradans during the summer. She didn’t feel too assured that she could spot potential predators on her own; she actually asked hotel staff to trap — yes trap — all the bears and mountain lions before she left. Wow …… wow.
