Coronavirus Spreading by Mr Gates Family who we’re responsible for creating NAACP For Blacks to get Sterilisation in the early days.

Bill Gates funded the PIRBRIGHT institute, which owns the patent on coronavirus. Believe it or not, the coronavirus strain that’s currently spreading throughout China and abroad is a patented virus that’s owned by an entity called The Pirbright Institute, which is partially funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The patent page for coronavirus explains that it “may be used as a vaccine for treating and/or preventing a disease, such as infectious bronchitis, in a subject,” suggesting that this is just another weaponized viral strain designed to sell more useless, deadly vaccines, while at the same time killing off a few thousand, or perhaps a few million, people. A close look at the patent page also shows that the Pirbright Institute owns all sorts of other virus patents, including one for African swine fever virus, which is listed as a “vaccine.” It is thus no surprise that Bill Gates is a Pirbright Institute financial backer, seeing as how he’s one of the most aggressive, vaccine-pushing “philanthropists” on the planet. If you remember his agenda of depopulation of millions of people then you'll understand what's going on. This was a plot of making sure that it reaches all countries in taking mass numbers of civilians out and mainly those who have no health such as the homeless in the streets and under the bridges. Wakeup!

Type “alt-right” into Google and you’ll stumble across abundance of think-pieces on the subject. Writers and political commentators on all sides have attempted to understand this new and insidious force in( chiefly) American politics, which doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. In reality , now that Trump is in the White House, it has only just intensified.
The so-called alternative privilege might be extremely vocal but it is also exceedingly vague. It resembles a loose coalition of far right counsels more than it does a clear and concise ideology. Beyond the main theme of white-hot supremacy, anti-establishment postures, and not-so-discreet racism, there is not all that much known about what it expressed support for. So psychologists Patrick Forscher and Nour Kteily decided to taken together a psychological profile on different groups. It is still a working paper, but the results were published in a preprint last week, which is available to read here.
To create this profile, Forscher and Kteily recruited 447 self-identified members of such alt-right and transmitted them an online survey, which experimented them on a series of psychological quantifies. The researchers then compared these responses to those of a power group of 382 people.
Much confirms what we already know about the alt-right: they distrust mainstream media and politicians, they testify greater is supportive of pro-white organisations or are more likely to show bias against black people. They also score higher on what is known as the dark triad of personality traits: narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy.
Neither is the demographic all that shocking. Mortal outnumbered ladies two to one. The vast majority( 93.3 percent) were white. Almost three-quarters substantiated Trump in the 2016 election, while one in ten chose not to vote at all. Astonishingly, they found that merely over 5 percent backed Hillary Clinton.
Perhaps most terrifyingly of all, players were asked to rate how advanced they believed different groups of people to be on a magnitude of zero( not at all human) to 100( solely human ). Tell: the results are pretty horrific.
Alt-righters rated white people higher than all other groups, placing them at a 91.8 on the evolutionary magnitude, whereas Jews were rated 73.09, Mexicans 67.75, black people 64.72 and Muslims 55.4. Women were judged to be less evolved than mortals (8 8.47 versus 83.12 ).
Feminists were particularly despised( 57.22 ). Republicans were considered to be more evolved than Democrat (8 2.78 versus 60.38) but the lowest scorer was Hillary Clinton( 54.83 ).
This is hugely important because it is effectively dehumanizing big groups of people- basically anyone that does not fit into the alt-right mold. Verifying anyone as less than human- and therefore, less deserving of human rights- is, of course, a serious matter
When it came to questions of social situations or the economy, the alt-right were neither socially isolated or economically frustrated. According to the study, alt-righters and individuals in the command group had similar high levels of close friends, and, if anything, the alt-right adherents reported a more positive outlook towards the economy. It seems that racial bias and anxiety were the primary motorists to alt-right membership.
Forscher and Kteily did identify two sub-groups of the alt-right: those who represent the more populist, anti-establishment wing and those with a more extremist rhetoric, motivated by ideals of white-hot supremism and wanting to maintain the social hierarchy. Though they did note that there is significant overlap and hinted the former sub-group could be a gateway to the latter as they become more involved in alt-right networks.
Though there are some limitations, which the researchers have themselves acknowledged, such as the fact that they relied on participants to self-identify, the study does give some interesting insight into the minds and motivations of the American alt-right.

<div>If you’re thinking about adding a new sex doll to your wishlist this month, you might want to slow your roll. New reports in the <a href="http://nypost.com/2017/09/11/hackers-could-program-sex-robots-to-kill/">New York Post</a> say that hackers could one day possibly program sex robots to kill. Not exactly the main purpose of a sex robot.</div>
“A 115 pound [52 kilogram] robot that is covered with silicone won’t be able to do much physically,” McNew told Cosmopolitan. “Go onto YouTube and search for ‘bipedal robots’ – robots that can walk on two legs. Look at how heavy, ugly, cumbersome (and expensive) they are with today’s technology.”
Graham Cluey, a computer analyst commented on the story: “The truth is, all you need is any robot that interacts with a human in the workplace or in the home. It doesn’t need to be a sex robot.”
Just last month, cybersecurity firm IOActive published a report on the security flaws of home robots and the possibilities of them being hacked. They also revealed that audio and video could be recorded by the hacked robots and transmitted to an outside server.

WARNING: This story contains spoilers.
Doctor Foster is back on our screens, two years since the first series – and fans and critics alike seem happy to have her back.
It was the most-watched television programme on Tuesday night, beating Channel 4’s Great British Bake Off.
Suranne Jones reprises her role as Gemma Foster, which earned her a Bafta.
The new series sees the GP’s cheating ex-husband Simon – played by Bertie Carvel – return to his former home town with his new wife.
The BBC One show drew an average audience of 6.3 million viewers – slightly higher than Bake Off’s average of six million viewers. Channel 4’s figures include those watching on +1.
The Independent Sean O’Grady says Jones is in contention for another Bafta and praises Mike Bartlett’s “skilfully rendered” script.
He says the set pieces, including a “wedding party debacle” and a “surprise Interflora package” with a rude message were “all done stylishly” and that the title sequence “drew us delicately into this middle class emotional hellhole”.
O’Grady has problems with Gemma’s nemesis, Kate however.
He writes: “I hate to say it, but Doctor Foster was also a bit compromised by the fact that the older (40 or so) woman is actually at least as attractive, smart and elegant as the younger (25 years old) usurper, Kate, played with well-calibrated naivety by Jodie Comer, who has only chronology on her side.”
The Guardian’s Lucy Mangan says she was gripped.
“An hour of the five in and I’ve already had so much fun I can barely type,” she writes.
“Simon drives up to the front door in a shiny new car. He smirks more smirkingly than anyone has ever smirked before to find her there, before delivering the most perfect pass-agg speech ever penned (I mentally prostrated myself at the feet of writer Mike Bartlett then and never really rose thereafter).”
Viewers of the show were also quick to take to Twitter.
Many were questioning the loyalty of Gemma’s co-worker Ros, who promised not to go to ex-husband Simon’s wedding party but was later outed. One fan describes Gemma’s colleague Ros as a “snake”.
Simon was also at the wrath of social media users – with many describing him in terms too colourful to publish.
And one writes she now hates her ex-husband after watching the show, despite the fact she’s never even been married.

As a beauty pageant owner turned politician, President Donald Trump could not have been pleased with how the 2018 Miss America competition wrapped up.
In the interview round on Sunday, Sep. 10, judge Jess Cagle, editor in chief of People magazine, asked Miss Texas Margana Wood whether Trump was right to fault “many sides” for the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Wood was blunt:
“I think that the white supremacist issue, it was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack, and I think that President Donald Trump should have made a statement earlier addressing the fact and making sure all Americans feel safe in this country.”
The state pageant champion, whose personal platform includes an anti-bullying campaign, argued that standing up to acts of hate is “the number one issue right now.”
Trump previously owned the Miss USA pageant, which is separate from Miss America.
Wood wasn’t the only contestant dunking on the president’s recent, controversial actions.
In the interview round, Miss North Dakota and eventual winner Cara Mund, slammed Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.
“I do believe it’s a bad decision,” Mund replied. “Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table, and that’s something that we really need to keep in mind. There is evidence that climate change is existing, so whether you believe it or not, we need to be at that table, and I think it’s just a bad decision on behalf of the United States.”
A June news poll by Washington Post-ABC found that 59% of Americans oppose taking the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement. And 52% of Americans think Trump’s response to Charlottesville was not strong enough, according to an August NPR/PBS News Hour Marist poll.
When it comes to the kind of place the average American wants their country to be, it seems clear that these two Miss America contestants have a better read than the president of the United States.
There’s a Constitutional loophole that makes them co-queen, right?

It’s utterly heartbreaking that the next season of will be its last, but does it comfort you to know that the series will begin filming sooner than we expected? The Season 8 filming date was finally revealed, so you can mark your calendars now to prepare for all your spoiler-hunting, photo-analyzing, counting-down-the-days needs. confirms what Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) told Collider: will start shooting again in October.
But what does that mean for a premiere date? Well, that’s the not-so-great part. Since began airing, the show had a history of hitting our small screens the same time every year for 10 episodes in April. But Season 7 came late this July, giving us just 7 episodes, thus changing up the cycle for the future. When it comes to , we are not fans of change.
This all means it’s doubtful that we’ll be getting a glimpse at the final season until next fall…. or 2019. Please, not 2019.
To top off our frustrations, Season 8 is expected to be its shortest at just 6 episodes. But wait! There’s more! Those 6 installments have the potential to be super-duper-sized, so don’t freak out thinking you only have a mere few more hours of to look forward to in your life. Season 7 is already blessing us with longer-than-average eps, and Season 8 might stretch the viewing time even further. Picture a mini-movie every week. At last month’s Con of Thrones, sound designer Paula Fairfield revealed that there’s the possibility of feature-length eps coming our way. We’ll just have to sit tight waiting around for them.
But don’t fret, fans. Even if we’re somewhat in the dark about the series’ exact future timeline, we still have a big Season 7 finale to look forward to on Sunday. And from the looks of it, it’s going to be a doozy. Bonus points? It’s clocking it at a colossal 80 minutes long.

<span style="font-weight:400;">Since 2005, Sea Shepherd has been working on the frontline of conservation in the Southern Ocean, using their ships to confront and disturb the vessels of Japanese whalers.</span>
On Sunday, the strident marine conservation group announced they will stop sending ships to the Southern Ocean in Antarctica because they can’t keep up with the technology of Japanese whalers. Although they will stop direct action against whaling vessels, they say they will continue to work towards stopping whaling operations in the Southern Ocean.
Sea Shepherd claims that Japan is now using military surveillance and satellite technology to keep tabs on its ships’ movements. This means that the whaling ships are able to avoid Sea Shepherds’ vessels with ease.
“The Japanese whalers not only have all the resources and subsidies their government can provide, they also have the powerful political backing of a major economic superpower,” Captain Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd’s founder, said in a statement on Sunday.
“Sea Shepherd, however, is limited in resources and we have hostile governments against us in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.”
Japan has also introduced a series of new anti-terrorism laws, making some of Sea Shepherd’s tactics technically illegal. The Japanese government has previously branded Sea Shepherd as “eco-terrorists” and attempted to place Captain Watson on an Interpol watch-list.
Last year, Japanese ships returned from the Antarctic Ocean after slaughtering 333 whales, the majority of which were believed to be pregnant females. Japan’s whaling operations have ignited huge international opposition. In 2016, the governments of Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the US signed a joint statement condemning whaling operations in the Southern Ocean.
However, in the statement, these governments also criticized the “dangerous, reckless, or unlawful behaviour” of protest groups such as Sea Shepherd. Although some of Sea Shepherd’s more controversial tactics, such as disabling ship’s propellers or cutting nets, have attracted criticism throughout the years, the conservationists remain confident their work was done for the right reasons.
“The Japanese whalers have been exposed, humiliated and most importantly have been denied thousands of lives that we have spared from their deadly harpoons. Thousands of whales are now swimming and reproducing that would now be dead if not for our intervention,” said Captain Watson.
“And perhaps more significantly than anything else, there are now voices in the Japanese government opposing the continuation of whaling. Our efforts have been like acupuncture needles stuck into Japanese society, probing and provoking responses.”
“We have exposed the incredible waste of money, the corruption and the shame this dirty business has brought to all the Japanese people. Our efforts have been so significant that one Japanese official said that Japan has two enemies – China and Sea Shepherd!”

No, it would be very bad. Every human would die, and the Earth would become a radioactive cinder. World War III is one of the worst things that could happen.
You are the U.N. secretary-general, the director of the United Nations. This is you.
Running the United Nations is a challenging job, but you know how important your work is. Without your tireless diplomatic efforts, World War III could erupt at any moment.
This is the start of a new day, and it’s bound to be a stressful one. You have just enough time for a soothing chamomile tea before you talk to world leaders and try to delay nuclear holocaust a little bit longer.
Soon the weight of the world will be on your shoulders, but right now, for one brief moment, you can revive your spirits with the calming taste of chamomile.
The second you swallow the tea your bowels seize up in knots. Number one and number two are stirring through your guts like a pair of incestuous pythons, angrily slamming against the walls of your intestine and bladder. What the hell did you just drink?
Oh no. You wanted to make chamomile tea, but must have grabbed the wrong box. You have to find a bathroom, fast.
Maybe you should do a little diplomacy first though, before you visit the toilet. You’ve already left the world unattended while you had your tea, and there’s no telling what mischief the countries are getting themselves into.
Diplomacy can wait five minutes. You desperately waddle straight to the bathroom.
While you’re in the bathroom, World War III occurs, and a nuclear shockwave obliterates New York City, which is where the United Nations headquarters is. You are instantly killed without even realizing there’s a problem. Soon every other city on Earth is also erased by nuclear hellfire.
Within minutes, a global population of billions is reduced to millions. The survivors struggle on for several decades, their numbers continually dwindling due to radiation sickness and famine caused by nuclear winter. The few that survive are often infertile from constant background irradiation.
Fifty years after World War III, fewer than 100,000 humans remain alive on the face of the Earth, surviving in scattered hunter-gatherer tribes. They eke out a tough existence on the toxic husk of the Earth, but even those hardened nomad bands are slowly killed off by the inhospitable wasteland.
Five hundred years after World War III, only two humans are left on Earth, a mother and her son. They live on the outskirts of the radioactive ruin of what was once called Cincinnati, eating cockroaches to survive. She dies of cancer when the boy is 10 years old. He lives the rest of his life alone on a dead planet, making up imaginary friends to keep himself company. He dies at the age of 49 from an untreated tooth infection.
This tragic fate befell humanity because you couldn’t hold in your feces for a few minutes before using the bathroom. It didn’t have to be this way.
You visit the conference room where ambassadors hang out to argue with each other. “Good morning, Mr. Secretary-General,” the diplomats greet you in unison.
Your stomach is rumbling like a blender full of rocks. You really need to wrap up this diplomacy stuff, pronto.
You deliver a long and eloquent speech on the importance of diplomacy, ignoring the furious writhing of your intestine. Unfortunately, you take too long. As soon as your finish speaking, your colon erupts in a geyser of shit. Liquid rivers of warm dung flow down your pant leg, over your shoes, and spread across the floor like the Exxon Valdez spill.
“Hey, the secretary-general just shit his pants!” screams the Belgian ambassador.
“Whoa, what a loser!” shouts the Japanese ambassador. “We used to respect him, but he can’t even keep his crap inside his body where it belongs.”
“All these years, we’ve listened to him when he told us that World War III would be bad,” says the Chilean ambassador. “But now that we know he’s actually an idiot who shits his pants, what if that means World War III would be good?”
Excited murmurs start to fill the room. “Yeah, World War III!” “The Big War!” “World War III would be good!” “Nukes nukes nukes nukes!”
The ambassadors ignore your desperate pleas and phone their home countries to tell them to start World War III. It doesn’t take long before a nuclear shockwave reduces the United Nations to radioactive ash, and you with it.
The French ambassador clears his throat. “Yes, we are about to go to war with our hated enemy England.”
Uh-oh, he’s lifting weights. This is a traditional form of diplomatic saber rattling that countries use to show their power. If he’s doing exercise at the United Nations, that means armed conflict could erupt between France and England at any second.
“The arrogant and imperialistic British have been hogging Stonehenge all for themselves. Why do they get to own Stonehenge? They didn’t even build Stonehenge, it was druids a long time ago. France should get a turn owning Stonehenge. If not, we have no choice but to start World War III.”
The diplomats watch you in puzzled silence as you struggle to control your spastic bowels. After a few perilous seconds you manage to resist defecating, for at least a little bit longer.
The English ambassador scoffs disdainfully. “How dare the devious French try to take our Stonehenge, when they’ve been selfishly hoarding the Eiffel Tower all to themselves for years. If France wants to do World War III, England welcomes the chance to best them in a contest of nukes. After we win, we’ll bring the Eiffel Tower to London where it belongs.”
With your blessing, England and France begin lobbing nuclear weapons at each other, destroying both Stonehenge and the Eiffel Tower, as well as all their cities and buildings and people.
The destruction of two countries would be bad enough, but England and France were both NATO signatories. As soon as they went to war, that invoked Article 5 of the NATO treaty, which declares that an attack against one NATO member is an attack against all and must be responded to with military action. All the other NATO members fulfill their obligations to defend England and France from England and France by bombing England and France. Attacking England and France invokes Article 5 of NATO again, which forces all the NATO nations to start bombing all the NATO nations that attacked England and France, including themselves.
You are killed in a nuclear explosion when the United States retaliates against the United States by bombing the United States.
Knowing that your bowels could evacuate the entire frozen package of hot dogs you ate this morning at any moment, you have to propose a peace treaty between England and France on how to equitably divide Stonehenge and the Eiffel Tower, and pronto!
The British ambassador falls silent for a long moment, then takes a nude photo of the queen out of his briefcase. “This photo of the queen’s glorious bare body is one of England’s most treasured possessions,” he says gravely, handing it to the French ambassador. “England will not trade it for anything less precious than the Eiffel Tower.”
The French ambassador examines the photo for a few seconds. “She looks pretty good for her age,” he says with utter solemnity.
The British ambassador nods. “Yeah, she’s in her nineties. Not bad at all.”
The two ambassadors shake hands, signaling a new era of peace between their countries. Now that you’ve averted war, nothing stops you from running to the bathroom.
“The Mona Lisa is one of France’s most valued treasures,” says the French ambassador in a hushed and reverent tone. “We stole that painting from the Italians, and it’s ours now. Until now, we’ve had a policy to never paint on the Mona Lisa, but we would break that rule in exchange for Stonehenge.”
“Manchester United rules!” shouts the English ambassador. “They kick the ball very well. We’d be honored to have Mona Lisa become a fan of Manchester.”
The two ambassadors shake hands, signaling a new era of peace between their countries. Now that you’ve averted war, nothing stops you from running to the bathroom.
You sprint toward the toilets, using every ounce of willpower to contain the furious contents of your twitching asshole. The door of the U.N.’s bathroom beckons to you like a lighthouse in a storm.
You stride triumphantly toward the toilets, ready to drop your pants and destroy the plumbing. There’s no time to spare either, because shit is ramming against your sphincter like Vikings at the castle gates.
There are four stalls in this bathroom. Which one do you want to use?
Wow, you just offended a Nobel Prize winner, and you still have a runaway brown train chugging down your colon, next stop sphincter junction. And without your guidance, World War III could break out in the general assembly at any time. Better make this quick!
Which stall do you want to use?
You open the door to the first stall, and a young woman sitting on the toilet shrieks in alarm.
“Excuse me, this stall is occupied!” screams Malala Yousafzai. “What the fucking hell is wrong with you? Can’t a Nobel Prize winner take a dump in peace?”
“Well, fucking knock next time! Now get lost, so I can finish up in here and get back to a conference on the importance of women’s education in the developing world.”
The Dalai Lama is sitting on the toilet. “Suffering must be our teacher, not our master,” he says while smiling at you benevolently. There is a quiet continuous sound of trickling urine.
“You are filled with sorrow,” says the Dalai Lama. “Instead, be joyous, for the world’s beauty is all around you!” Urine continues to steadily trickle.
“Our needs and wants are roadblocks on the path to nirvana.” The sound of urine slows down to intermittent spurts, and eventually stops entirely. Five quiet seconds pass as the Dalai Lama smiles at you. Then suddenly urine starts pouring again twice as loud as before.
You drop your pants and seat your bare ass on the Dalai Lama’s naked thighs. In response, the Buddhist spiritual leader calmly takes a can of mace out of his robes and pepper-sprays you in the eyes.
The world is a painful blur. You try to fumble your way to the sinks to wash the pepper spray from your stinging eyes, but instead accidentally wander out of the bathroom into the U.N.’s hallway, right in front of an elementary school tour group.
There are shocked gasps and giggles from the students as you waddle around with your fallen pants, reluctantly shitting a breadcrumb trail of turds behind you.
Police handcuff you and throw you in the back of a squad car. You face some pretty serious charges. Shitting in front of minors will get you put on the sex offender registry, which will get you fired from your job at the United Nations and make it impossible to ever get employed again.
However, you’re never charged for your crimes. On your way to the police station, World War III happens, and you’re disintegrated by a nuclear explosion.
Former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi is sitting on the toilet. “Occupied,” says the brutal tyrant. “My bad, I should have locked the door.”
“No, they only killed one of my body doubles,” says Gaddafi. “I was at the United Nations for a diplomatic summit when my government was overthrown, so I decided to lay low and live in the bathroom here.”
“Sure, help yourself,” says Gaddafi as he stands and pulls up his pants. “Heads up, though, I just dropped a monster deuce, and this toilet is completely clogged. Sorry about that.”
The odor from the toilet is absolutely horrendous. Gaddafi’s dump smells like a combination of dog sweat and spoiled cheesecake. You flick the handle a few times, but it doesn’t flush. You definitely do not want to sit on top of that mess, but you need a toilet and you’re getting desperate.
You sit down on top of the steaming dung and defecate. It’s pretty gross feeling the polluted Gaddafi-water splash up against your ass cheeks, but at least you get rid of your diarrhea.
You have succeeded in using the toilet for five minutes without World War III breaking out, so congratulations! Technically, you win! On the downside, you get all kinds of weird diseases from exposure to Gaddafi’s shit, which is to be expected from someone who slept with thousands of prostitutes and sex slaves over four decades. A few hours after using the bathroom you start hemorrhaging blood from your anus and then die. After your death, there’s nobody around to prevent World War III, and humanity is eradicated by nuclear warfare.
If you’re okay with this, you can quit now and consider this a victory, but maybe there’s a way to take a shit and also prevent World War III from happening at all.
You open the door and find Bill Gates sitting on the toilet, but not actually defecating. The toilet lid is down, and Bill Gate’s pants are up.
The billionaire philanthropist is lost in thought and doesn’t notice you enter.
“Oh, hello, Secretary-General,” says Bill Gates. “No, I don’t need to use the bathroom. I just came here to think about all the strides the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has made in the fight against malaria. The bathroom is one of my favorite quiet places to think about doing charity.”
“Sure, of course you can use this toilet,” says Bill Gates. “Unfortunately, not everyone on Earth has a toilet. And other unfortunate people have malaria, a serious and sometimes deadly disease spread by mosquitoes. There are over 200 million cases of malaria each year. It’s an enduring problem that I hope to fix in my lifetime.”
“Oh right, you need to use the toilet,” says Bill Gates. “I forgot because I was talking about malaria, a serious disease endemic in tropical climates. Combating malaria will require a threefold approach: 1) reducing mosquito populations by eliminating standing water sources and employing judicious use of pesticides; 2) developing effective drugs and vaccines to protect at-risk populations from malaria; 3) employing barriers such as mosquito nets to prevent contact between humans and mosquitos.”
“I’m sorry to hear that. I will get off the toilet immediately so you can use it,” says Bill Gates while remaining seated on the toilet. “Diarrhea is also one of the symptoms of malaria, a serious disease that is sometimes fatal. Other symptoms of malaria include fever and vomiting. Over half a million people die each year from malaria, a grim annual toll that is too often ignored in the Western world.
“The good news is that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has made huge strides against malaria, reducing deaths by 20 percent since the year 2000. Our scientists have made promising breakthroughs experimenting with recombinant protein-based vaccines, and we intend to keep funding grants to pursue that area of research.
“Eradicating malaria is a long-term goal, but an attainable one, that will require ongoing cooperation between government health departments and NGOs. By the way, didn’t you say you needed to use the toilet? Sorry, I got distracted talking about malaria.”
Bill Gates stands up and gestures at the toilet. “It’s all yours.”
You shit your pants because you let Bill Gates ramble on about malaria for too long. There’s no way you can conduct diplomacy like this. None of the ambassadors will take you seriously if you have sopping-wet shit legs. You have no choice but to go shopping for a new pair of pants.
You and your befouled pants squeeze onto a packed subway train. The other straphangers give you disgusted looks and inch away.
In your worst nightmares you never dreamed that you, the secretary-general of the world’s most esteemed diplomatic institution, could become a social pariah stinking up a train car. You pray the subway gets to your stop quickly so you can reach Macy’s and buy clean pants as soon as possible.
You’re traveling through a tunnel when the subway comes to a screeching halt. The lights flicker, and the car shakes as the ground trembles.
The train conductor’s voice crackles over the intercom. “Sorry passengers, this train is experiencing service delays because World War III just happened on the surface and everyone up there is dead. Thank you for your patience.”
You climb a service ladder to the street level and behold the grim aftermath of World War III. Charred corpses litter the streets amidst burning rubble. This is the exact kind of situation you tried to warn people about when you said World War III would be bad.
Fortunately, you managed to survive doomsday and become a nomadic scavenger. You spend the rest of your grueling life searching through the radioactive ruins of civilization for canned food and bugs to eat. However, in all your decades of wandering the nuclear wasteland, you never find a clean pair of pants.
“Don’t worry, I’ll squish it!” shouts Bill Gates. He runs out to the United Nations parking lot, hops into his car, and drives into your car at 90 mph, totaling both vehicles.
Bill Gates dizzily climbs out of the wreckage of his car. He has a long gash bleeding on his forehead where it hit the steering wheel. “I don’t see the mosquito,” he shouts out in warning. “I think it got away. Don’t let it bite you, or you might get malaria!”
You’ve successfully tricked Bill Gates into leaving the toilet.
You drop your pants and lower yourself down. The ring of the toilet seat feels cool and refreshing on your buttocks.
Just as you prepare to tense your colon and expel all the filth within, there is a loud commotion from outside the bathroom. You hear angry shouting. Someone screams, “If World War III is what you want, then World War III is what you’re gonna get!”

(CNN)Face down in the mud, a baby boy lies still after washing up on a river bank.
‘The military was searching for Rohingyas’
- The Rohingya are a stateless Muslim minority in Myanmar’s Rakhine state thought to number about 1 million people.
- Myanmar does not recognize them as citizens or one of the 135 recognized ethnic groups in the country.
- Myanmar regards them as illegal immigrants, a view rooted in their heritage in East Bengal, now called Bangladesh.
- Though many Rohingya have only known life in Myanmar, they are widely viewed as intruders from across the border.
- According to Human Rights Watch, laws discriminate against the Rohingya, infringing on their freedom of movement, education and employment.
- They are denied land and property rights and ownership, and the land on which they live can be taken away at any given time.

Missing the former first lady already? You’re not alone. As it turns out, some people think she’d be the best bet to serve the White House again — but this time, she’d be at the helm. As he wrote in an op-ed for , former Bill Clinton pollster Douglas E. Schoen thinks Michelle Obama would dominate the 2020 election for the Democratic party.
Pretty much since the election ended and current President Donald Trump took office, Democrats, pundits, and concerned Americans alike been chattering about who might be stepping up to compete for the 2020 election nomination. And already, the competition looks pretty full, despite being only eight months into the president’s first term.
Democratic Senators Kamala Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts have been flagged as early options, and their campaigns are already in fundraising mode.
But Schoen doesn’t seem to think these candidates would solve the problem. He writes,
This alternative plan requires a new, united opposition, led by a political leader with widespread popularity.
The only person I can see accomplishing this would be none other than the party’s most popular political figure: Michelle Obama.
The whispers of whether Obama might consider running for president began even before her husband’s second term ended. Some have suggested it as a half-cracked fantasy that the first lady would ever run for office, and she herself has dispelled that notion. As points out, when Oprah asked Obama the very same thing back in December, she put those queries to bed, saying:
I don’t make stuff up, I’m not coy — I’m pretty direct. If I were interested in it, I’d say it.
She’s also expressed that, after eight years in the White House, their family is not looking to return to the immensely demanding Washington lifestyle. Nevertheless, Schoen thinks she’d be the best candidate to run in the Democratic party. He wrote,
Michelle Obama is perceived as a strong, well-qualified leader with immense national popularity. Broadly, the polls show she is respected by the American people and by the near-entirety of the Democratic Party.
Schoen makes clear that he’s in no way personally endorsing her as a candidate and stresses his concerns with the Obama administration. But Schoen’s analysis is based on polling numbers and strategies that might avoid the shortcomings that buckled Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. He cites a lack of any controversies or ethical Achilles’ heels for Mrs. Obama, and focuses on how popular she remains among the American people. According to Schoen, her favorability ratings far outpace the sitting president’s, for example. And not only could she outdo Republican candidates, but she would potentially rate higher than the other Democratic names already flagged as possible candidates.
Schoen notes that if you’ve got nothing but fondness for the former first lady, you’re joined by a lot of Americans who gave Michelle a 68 percent approval rating — higher than her husband or former vice president Joe Biden. (As of July 8, Melania Trump’s approval rating was only 51 percent, according to a Fox News poll.)
If some were holding out hope that, over time, Trump’s presidency would wear down the Obamas and convince them to reconsider a 2020 run for president, it’s not looking likely. reports that Obama again reiterated her position on Aug. 27 at a Q&A during a conference in Florida, saying:
Politics is tough, and it’s hard on a family. I wouldn’t ask my children to do this again because, when you run for higher office, it’s not just you, it’s your whole family.
Her own clear insistence on the matter hasn’t done much to dissuade dreamers. (This guy even made… T-shirts… ?)
It’s unclear what impact, if any, the repeated narrative of her presidential potential might have on Obama. Nothing is certain until it’s happened, and some point to the continued unpredictability of this administration as evidence anything can happen. Polls aren’t everything, though, and personally: whatever Michelle decides to do with her life will probably still be 1,000 times cooler than most of us.

Vanity Fair just released its annual International Best Dressed List, but there’s one name in particular that’s missing and people have taken notice.
First Lady Melania Trump didn’t make the cut, although her predecessor, Michelle Obama, did (not for the first time). But while no Trump family members are on the list, the Washington Post points out that Melania’s go-to stylist, Hervé Pierre – who dressed the First Lady for her husband’s inaugural ball, along with several other high-profile events – was named.
In addition to Obama, who appears in the “couples” section of the list alongside former president Barack Obama, a small group of other politicians made the cut, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron (along with his wife, Brigitte).
Trump’s wardrobe has been discussed by Vanity Fair in the past — recent topics include her penchant for pink, and her decision to board a flight to flood-ravaged Houston in stiletto heels — but the site has also reported on her more innocuous fashion choices, too. In late August, the site ran an article titled, “Melania Trump Takes a Fashion Cue from Michelle Obama,” which likened Trump’s more affordable ensemble to the J.Crew outfits Obama was fond of wearing.
In response, fans of the First Lady are fuming over the Trump family’s exclusion from the Vanity Fair list, with some accusing the publication of ignoring her purely out of spite.
While many are claiming Vanity Fair seemingly left Trump off the list due to the magazine’s political position, The Cut notes that both Obama and Macron made the list as a best dressed couple, so perhaps Trump would be included if her husband dressed differently.
However, not everyone agrees that Trump should’ve made the list, sparking a heated debate on Facebook.
“Just because Melania is ‘First Lady’ — she had to wear a tacky hat in Texas to remind us — doesn’t give her an automatic entrée to the Best Dressed List; especially since every time I see her she’s dressed like a ‘high-end’ hooker,” one person commented.
Another wrote: “Vanity Fair and Vogue have much different criteria than our personal taste.”
“It’s not ONLY about clothes, but rather someone’s entire persona. Melania has been on the job almost a year and has done NOTHING but wear clothes, she’s the least interesting First Lady in history. Sorry, she’s not good enough,” another person wrote.

A cyber security buff has issued a bizarre warning that sex robots could one day rise up and kill their owners if hackers can get inside their heads.
Last month, tech billionaire Elon Musk claimed that artificial intelligence could take over the planet, and he’s not the only one concerned about the dangers of killer tech.
With sex robots becoming increasingly popular and sophisticated, Cyber security lecturer Dr Nick Patterson revealed that the lifelike dolls could end up going all Terminator on us.
However, in the case of sex robots, the danger isn’t that the love dolls will end up developing minds of their own, Westworld-style.
Dr Patterson told Star Online that hacking into many modern-day robots, including sexbots, would be a piece of cake compared to more sophisticated gadgets like mobiles and computers.
The tech expert, from Deakin University, Australia, said: “Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like in some cases knives or welding devices.
“Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot.”
The warning may sound a little far fetched, but the robots run using an operating system just like a phone or PC.
And as with all devices, if that system is ever connected to the internet, then it becomes possible for hackers to break in to it.
The cyber defence guru added: “The last thing you want is for a hacker to have control over one of these robots.
“Once hacked they could absolutely be used to perform physical actions for an advantageous scenario or to cause damage.”
Previously, the Sun Online exclusively revealed that the sexbots could actually end up SAVING people’s lives, according to one of the companies behind the AI-lovers.
We also exclusively told how wars of the future could be fought with man-made robotic viruses which turn people into zombies.

A Maryland county judge has ordered the state bar to investigate three lawyers accused of deleting thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Circuit Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. ruled Monday that the Attorney Grievance Commission and Office of Bar Counsel Maryland Office of Bar Counsel must look into complaints against Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson and David E. Kendall, citing “allegations of destroying evidence,” according to the Washington Times.
The ruling came after Ty Clevenger, an attorney in New York City, filed the complaint. He recently was denied files from the FBI related to Clinton’s email investigation, due to what the bureau called a lack of public interest.
Clevenger argued that the lawyers should be investigated for wrongdoing by destroying evidence, The Baltimore Sun reported.
Harris said Clevenger’s appeal to have the lawyers investigated “appears to have merit,” the Times reported.
Clevenger is looking to prove Clinton committed perjury, the Times reported. He said he was writing a book about political corruption — and has lobbed accusations against both Republicans and Democrats.
A lawyer for the bar counsel said Monday that Clevenger’s complaint was “frivolous” but wouldn’t elaborate, citing confidentiality reasons. Judge Harris rejected the argument.
“The court is ordering bar counsel to investigate,” Harris said.
Former FBI Director James Comey said in July 2016 that while Clinton’s use of a private email server was “extremely careless,” he decided against recommending criminal charges.

ESPN radio host Dan Le Batard became emotional reading Michael Bennett’s harrowing account of his arrest by Las Vegas police for “simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
What Le Batard read next made him furious.
During a commercial break on the Wednesday edition of his radio show, Le Batard said he received a stream of text messages from irate fans accusing Bennett of embellishing, or fabricating the story.
“Calling total BS on that story, video or lie,” one text reportedly read.
“Don’t believe this story. Back it up with a police report or an eyewitness,” read another.
“Shut up fat face Leba-tard,” another began. “I still haven’t found the racists who spray painted LeBron’s gate. This is all made up. Liberal sheep liar. Shut the [bleep] up.'”
In a righteous, five-minute response, Le Batard called out his listeners for reflexively doubting the Pro-Bowl defensive end.
The host rattled off a list of other athletes who have identified racism in their daily lives — including Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones, who reported racist taunts at Fenway Park, and NFL players attributing teams’ refusal to sign Colin Kaepernick to the quarterback’s national anthem protests last season — and the skeptical responses he’s received from listeners.
“I’m just hurt by it man,” Le Batard said. “‘Prove to me that racism exists.’ ‘Adam Jones, you got called the n-word. Prove to me that you got called the n-word.’ ‘Colin Kaepernick, look at the starters in the NFL this week. Prove to me that he’s blackballed.’ ‘Where’s the proof?’ ‘Prove racism to me.’ Well, how can I prove it to you if when Michael Bennett comes out and tells your story, you’re gonna tell him, ‘Not true.’ How? How can I prove it to you if every time I come to you, you’re gonna say, ‘Fake news’?”
The ESPN host went on to express shock at the intensity of the blowback.
“The reaction was too strong,” Le Batard said. “Man, who hurt you? Who hurt you? Because I know who hurt black people. It was white people.” He speculated that black Americans and the police often feel threatened by one another — making rational discourse impossible.
A March Quinnipiac University poll found that 39% of white Americans believed that racism against whites was “very serious,” compared to 66% of non-whites. ESPN’s radio audience is 80% male, most between the ages of 25 and 52. Barrett Sports Media, a sports media consulting company, estimates that listeners skew 70-90% white across all stations.
Le Batard frequently analyzes the intersection of race and sports on air. The host has voiced support for Colin Kaepernick’s activism and dismay that the quarterback remains unsigned by the NFL.
“He is good enough to be paid by that league and the only reason he’s not paid by that league is because that league is run by cowards,” Le Batard said on a July 19 edition of his radio show. “I shouldn’t say it’s the only reason. It’s one of the reasons.”
The sportscaster also recently criticized Kaepernick for wearing a T-shirt with Fidel Castro’s image on it. (Le Batard is Cuban-American.)
He concluded the monologue with an appeal to his listeners’ empathy.
“You don’t know what it’s like to be on the end of those handcuffs for no reason,” he said. “Because if you did, there’s no way you would respond to that Michael Bennett story by calling BS and wanting to fight me for reading the story to you.”
Five days a week, thousands tune in to listen to Le Batard. Now, he’s asking them to listen to others whose experiences differ dramatically from their own.

Cobb County, Georgia, police lieutenant Greg Abbott is under investigation after talking about killing “black people.” Um, whut ??
In a DUI arrest captured on sprint cam, a white girl passenger says she’s afraid to reach for her cell phone because she’s “seen way too many videos of cops…”
Abbott gets what she entails right away and interrupts her, saying 😛 TAGEND
“But you’re not black. Remember, we only kill black people.”
“Yeah. We merely kill black people, right? All the videos you’ve recognized, have you discovered the black people get killed?
Ugh. The incident is from way back in July 2016 but has recently been been released to the public. Abbott, who has been a police officer for 28 times and should know better, is now on “administrative duty” pending an investigation.
Cobb County Police Chief Mike Register released a statement saying 😛 TAGEND
“No matter what the context, statements like these are unacceptable and are not indicative of the type of culture we are trying to facilitate here in the police department, as well as within the county.”
Lt. Abbott has not spoken out about the incident, but his attorney, Lance LoRusso, liberated a declaration on his behalf saying specific comments was an unorthodox direction to “de-escalate a situation involving an uncooperative passenger.”
Even if it did work to de-escalate such a situation( and frankly it seems like telling her only awful cops kill anyone would have been a more appropriate AND more calming thing to say ), it is the kind of note that intensifies strain between the black community and police nationwide.

President Donald Trump should be pretty well informed about what to do in a disaster situation by this point. After being criticized for his initial response to last month’s Hurricane Harvey, should know by now to stick to public expressions of concern for those affected and discussions of how to help. But it looks like he hasn’t learned his lesson yet. The president stuck his foot in his mouth again on Sept. 10, when Trump said hurricanes were improving the Coast Guard’s brand.
Trump started the statement he made to a reporter in the White House pool on Sunday right. As Hurricane Irma pounded Florida, devastating the state with catastrophic flooding, intense wind, and heavy rain, the president began by praising the work of the government agencies working to help, like the Coast Guard. Trump said that “a group that really deserves tremendous credit is the United States Coast Guard,” according to The Hill. So far, so good — acknowledging the severity of the situation, praising those who are risking their own safety to help, talking up his administration’s response an acceptable, but not boastful, amount.
But then, he screwed the pooch. Trump quickly reminded us of his inability to overlook a branding opportunity, no matter how gauche or mistimed. He said,
What they’ve done — I mean, they’ve gone right into that, and you never know. When you go in there, you don’t know if you’re going to come out. They are really — if you talk about branding, no brand has improved more than the United States Coast Guard.
Oh, no. Oh, Donald, Donald, Donald. You were doing so well. Okay, it was for, like, a split second, but hey, the bar is pretty low these days.
Just in case it needs to be said: no, the Coast Guard probably isn’t worried about their “brand.”
The Coast Guard is, currently, probably worried most about A) saving lives across Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, which have all been heavily hit by the storm, B) keeping their own people and resources safe, and a possible third of C) getting the funding that they need which Trump’s budget wants to cap.
On ABC News’ on Sept. 10, Rear Admiral Peter Brown said that the Coast Guard was focused on recovery in the places that the storm had hit, and getting channels of travel open again to bring first responders and resources to the people who need them.
He also acknowledged that the resources of the Coast Guard were stretched, with many people and resources being moved right from Harvey recovery to helping with Irma. He said,
My district is also responsible for Coast Guard operations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and those response operations have been going on for several days now. … Many of the same assets and people who responded to Harvey have now reprovisioned and repositioned to be ready to respond to Hurricane Irma. And although the storms are different and the threats are a little bit different, we’ll take the lessons learned from our recent experience with Hurricane Harvey and apply it to respond to Hurricane Irma.
It’s not Trump’s first flub when it comes to responding to a major disaster.
In late August, he took heat for traveling to Houston, Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey — only to avoid meeting with any actual survivors of the storm. On a second try, Trump and First Lady Melania went to a shelter for people who had been displaced by the storm, where they helped distribute meals and told survivors to “have a good time.” There were some raised eyebrows before the couple got to Houston, as well — both times, the first lady got criticism for wearing stiletto heels as she headed out to supposedly lend a hand to people who had lost everything to flooding.
So, Donald. Let’s go over what we’ve learned. In a natural disaster, when people have lost everything, DO: meet with those affected; express your concern and sympathy; and tell people what you’re doing to help. DO NOT: gladhand; wear inappropriate footwear; or express a bizarre concern with branding. You get me?
Well, Trump is scheduled to go visit Florida “soon.” I guess we’ll see.

( CNN) Since 2007, John Culpepper had been anticipating this moment: the unveiling of a statue to the common Confederate soldier in his hometown of Chickamauga, Georgia. In November of last year, three days before Donald Trump won the presidency, it became a reality.
