    That was shambolic from Arsenal. Pathetic doesn't even begin to describe the level of that performance. Bayern might as well prepare for the QFs.

    Maybe they will say that Flynn was never the NSA, the liberal media made up the story.

    But bruh, her emails!

    KellyAnn Conway said a few hours before Flynn resigned that POTUS Trump had complete confidence in him. Maybe she meant "Alternative confidence"?

    I am more interested in the news that some officials leaked the news about Flynn. It would indicate that Trump has lost trust from a lot of officials. People can say what they want about Obama, but he did not lose officials like this.

    Again, more popcorn!

    The Republicans help up Obama's nominee for a year. Can you imagine the outrage if Obama had said/done something even remotely close to this?

    As someone who has no dog in the race though, its funny to watch the whole thing go down. I'm running out of popcorn here.

    Japan's score was 72 (ranked 20) while China ranked 79.

    Since its debut in 2010, the fantasy epic—which has now hauled in 38 Emmys in total, including best drama for two years running—has been the target of criticism for senseless violence and, more controversially, its pervasive use of rape as a dramatic device.

    What utter garbage. Do these people even know the kind of world in which GoT is set? And does not violence and rape exist today as a way to exert power and influence? I expected better from AFP that this tripe.

    It’s going to be possible to fall in love with a virtual girl.

    Wasn't that the case already for quite a few people in Japan?

    Robson-Kanu sent Belgian defenders to buy some Belgian waffle from across the border with that sweet turn.

    What a story for Wales. Despite the fact that I despise Arsenal, Ramsey has been brilliant this tournament and its a shame he will miss the semis. Hopefully the other squad members step up.

    Other reports say he overpowered one of the kidnappers and called the cops himself. What a man!

    Watched parts of the debate, and my assessment was that Sanders had Clinton's number all night long. I think he could have said a lot more aggressive in calling her out on her policy decisions and ties to wall street. But still overall a very strong showing from Sanders.

    Here is what I don't understand about America and its politics (and in this particular case, the democrats). Sanders has a higher honesty/integrity rating than Clinton, higher favorability rating than Clinton, does better in hypothetical matchup polls against republicans, and has the highest approval rating of any US senator. And still he is behind in the race to the nomination. So, the people overall favor Sanders but are still gonna vote Clinton. How does that even work?

    A witness said he heard shouts in Arabic shortly before two blasts struck the packed airport departure lounge.

    Of course. It'd be more of a news if people heard "Oi vey".

    At this point, even the most ardent defenders of the doctrine of Islam have to acknowledge that something is very wrong. Many other ethnic and religious minorities have suffered injustices. Still many others have reached out to western Europe in hopes of a better life. But it is the members a particular "fraternity" that show this sort of proclivity for violence. I understand the urge to believe that religion is not to blame, that somehow geopolitics drives these people to do what they do. But at the same time, we have square that argument with the reality that other minority/migrant communities do not engage in such barbaric activities.

    Europe has a simple choice. Either acknowledge the reality, and fix what is broken. Or stay in denial, and perish.

    “We have a special obligation to make clear what we stand for, which is why I think we should not make promises we can’t keep,” Clinton said.

    Hillary Clinton should change her campaign slogan to - "Lower your expectations. Vote Clinton."

    Seriously though, are those things Sanders promises actually unrealistic? Because I was under the impression that most of the schemes such as single-payer healthcare were already tried and tested in western Europe and Canada. Or are those promises unrealistic because Clinton's donors will not make money from them and told her they are unrealistic?

    Continuing her assault, Clinton embraced a typical Republican line of attack to demonize Sanders, saying his plans would likely increase the size of the federal government by about 40 percent.

    Not surprising. By most standards, Hillary is more Republican than Democrat. It is due to Bernie that she is being forced to drift left.

    May the force be with Bernie.

    “We thought of sentences in a way that students can memorise and practise easily,” said the spokesman.

    Ah yes. Of course.

    Problematic entries included, “I was puzzled by the size of her breasts” and “She squeezed me in a rhythmic way.” Among other examples were, “Please slowly insert all the way” and “Don’t stimulate the sensitive spot too hard.”

    On second thought, this might actually work for the male students. /jk

    My sincerest apologies. I misunderstood the ordinance to mean it would result in a ban. My bad. Thanks for pointing it out. The ordinance now looks pretty good!

    As someone who is an absolutist about Freedom of Speech, I disagree with this ordinance (people are most welcome to disagree, or dislike this comment). Hate Speech should be fought with informed debates and positive messages, not with bans. These measures can have certain undesirable side effects in the long run.

    I think America has the right idea in this regard, wherein hate speech is permissible and even protected under the right to free speech (such as that in which the idiots at the WBC engage in), but hate crime is illegal and severely punished.

    The only people who profit from these events are giant corporations who get massive contracts at inflated prices funded by the taxpayer. The Olympics will not turn over nearly enough money for this whole gig to be profitable. For a country with such a massive debt, shrinking/aging population and no real growth as Japan, bidding for the Olympics was a huge folly to begin with.

    People blaming the migrant situation for this might want to consider the migrants are running from the same sh*t.

    At the same time, if it later turns out that the attackers got in disguised as migrants, Europe does need to tighten controls.

    Europe now has to walk a very tight rope between pragmatism and idealism.

    Stay safe people in Paris!

    PS: Some reports suggest the attackers shouted...... you guessed it, Allahu Akbar. And yet we will be subjected to the same drivel that religion has nothing to do with it. These attacks are just a symptom, and the world quickly needs to focus on the problem rather than the symptom.

    “I don’t think we should keep our mouth shut at all times just because of freedom of the press,” LDP Secretary General Sadakazu Tanigaki

    Nobody is asking you to "keep your mouth shut at all times", although it would be better for everyone. The allegation is of "exerting undue pressure". The LDP could have just criticized the program, but they went on to summon an NHK executive, while the Ministry also issued a "stern warning" to the NHK. See the difference?

    It's oddly satisfying to watch Mourinho and his team crash and burn.

    Also, Vardy is a beast of a player.
