The US military achieves another scientific feat as its robotic co-pilot flies and lands Boeing 737 simulator aircraft

Robotic co-pilot

Another scientific breakthrough emerges from the US military, as its funded project invents a robotic co-pilot which managed to fly and land an aircraft Boeing 737 in flight simulator. The robotic project is named ALIAS (Aircrew Labour In-Cockpit Automation System), the robotic system can help a pilot fly and even land a Boeing 737.

The scientific feat was designed by Aurora Flight Sciences which is one of its research projects to support more automation on existing aircraft

The project was embarked on due to how expensive both civilian and military aircraft operations are, as it needs extreme and skilled experts are needed to react in the right direction during unforeseeable circumstances.

Taking the seat of the co-pilot, ALIAS makes use of machine vision to enable the computer running the automated system take and understand visual feedback as humans. Just like human beings, it can as well manipulate the flight control.

Just like the Amazon Alexa voice command assistant, it has the ability to recognise speech and synthesis, formulating responses to communicate with the pilot.

"Having successfully demonstrated on a variety of aircraft, ALIAS has proven its versatile automated flight capabilities," said John Wissler, Aurora's vice president of research and development.

"As we move towards fully automated flight from take-off to landing, we can reliably say that we have developed an automation system that enables significant reduction of crew workload."

The work was completed for a project for the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in the US.

DARPA, is the US military's research wing, which supported projects that have been useful in non-military situations, including the ARPANET, the earliest predecessor of the internet.

The aims for ALIAS include it ultimately supporting the execution of an entire mission from take-off to landing, even in the face of serious aircraft system failures.

Contrary to speculation, the US economy is growing and 235,000 jobs created in February

US economic growth

Contrary to all the negative projections made by anti-Trump media houses to scuttle his ascendancy to the US presidency, recent data has revealed that the US economy has been experiencing steady growth. As a result, the government is now set to adjust the cost of borrowing to suit the current trend in order to keep the economy booming.

The Federal Reserve has now put interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point - the second rise in three months, due to improvements in key sectors of the US economy. Report shows that about 235,000 jobs were created in February, a growth which has proved all the project fear campaigners to shame.

Within the period, US shares experienced some gains, while the USD fall abruptly due to lack of plan that rates might rise.

The Fed's forecasts also saw the US economy developing by 2.1% in 2017, unchanged from its December forecast.

The latest rise in rates was due to the official jobs figures published on Friday, which were better than what was projected.

Steadily increasing rates are a sign that the US is gradually being weaned off the stimulus of cheap borrowing costs that helped nurse it back to health after the recession.

Fed chair Janet Yellen said: "The economy continues to expand at a moderate pace."

Economists think the next Fed hike will come no earlier than June as the central bank will want time to assess the likelihood that Mr Trump's plans will be passed by Congress.

However, Rising US rates have some kind of global consequences especially for developing countries most susceptible to higher dollar borrowing costs.

It contrasts with the UK, where rates were slashed to 0.5% in 2009 and cut further to 0.25% in the wake of last year's Brexit vote.

Lucy O'Carroll, chief economist at Aberdeen Asset Management, told Sky News it would have been an "enormous surprise" if the Fed had not raised rates in its latest policy announcement.

She said policymakers did not seem too worried about the possibility of soaring inflation.

"I think it was a very measured and reassuring message," she said.

Green card checks at Subway increases deportation tension in New York

US deportation tension in NY

With President Trump fully ready to implement his electioneering promises, of which immigration is one, immigrants living all over New York fasten their seatbelt for harsher immigration status checks over the past week.

Information reaching us has it that New York is experiencing rising number of unplanned immigration status checks being done by men of the Department of Homeland Security, namely on the city’s subway system.

Officials from the Homeland Security disclosed two memos last Tuesday which detailed wild stretching directives centred on both interior implementation and the US-Mexico border crackdown.

According to the report, it was indicated in the memo that there would be recruitment of thousands new enforcement agents, and the empowerment of officials to “immediately deport” any detained individual who had been in the country for less than two years.

Accordingly, it has been confirmed by ICE operation that 41 arrests have been recorded in the New York City area.

Over the past 10 days, various occurrences of green card spot checks apparently happened in immigrant-heavy boroughs of New York, namely Queens and Brooklyn.

Graphic designer Jason Shelowtiz took to Twitter to document his wife's experience on a train.

He said: "Wife's coworker held up on subway in Queens because police were checking for green cards. This is not bull****. Racial profiling."

In subsequent tweets he added: "7 train at Junction Blvd was stopped. Police came on asking to see Green Cards.

"They're also stopping R trains asking to see Green Cards. This is scary."

The Twitter allegations have been denied by New York's Police Department, who told local media: "The police department does not check anybody's green card. Period."

Nearly 40 per cent of the city’s 8.2million population are foreign-born, according to a 2013 study by the City Planning Commission. In at least nine neighbourhoods, more than half the residents are foreign-born.

Elsewhere in Chicago, public transport users expressed their confusion and concern after encountering random security checkpoints set up at Addison Ted Lime stations on the city’s subway system.

Locals described the scenes as “peculiar” and “worrying” after Homeland Security personnel carried out bag searches in ticket halls.

Student Abby Seitz tweeted: "Stopped at the Addison CTA stop by Homeland Security for a "random bag check." ...what?"

She told local media that she had encountered at least seven or eight officers, all of whom wore Homeland Security badges and vests.

She said: “I did not see a single CPD [Chicago Police Department] officer in the line. They all had visible Homeland Security credentials."

President Trump now receives loads of accolades from people who had hitherto reviled him

Conservatives welcome Trump

Despite all the media blackmail against President Donald Trump, it is becoming clearer that, he is gradually becoming accepted by most of the people who fought against his presidential election.

The latest is coming from a formerly hostile audience of Conservatives as they cheered his plans in office to the rafters. As they all gave him a rousing welcome for his political plan for the country.

According to sources, Mr Trump received rounds of praise as he outlined the proposals he matched to his shared "values" with the right-wing and staunchly religious crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

They included pledges for the "greatest" build-up of the US military, the repeal of Barack Obama's signature healthcare programme and the renegotiation of Democrat-negotiated trade deals.

He also established the building of the US-Mexico border wall will begin "real soon" and "way ahead of schedule", while earning large cheers for plans to "keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out" of America.

The biggest of the ovation was given to him for his backing for the constitution’s rights to gun ownership, telling them almost in passing: "And by the way we will protect our second amendment."

The support was in marked contrast to his controversial last appearance on the same stage in 2015 when the presidential hopeful was booed when he doubted then crowd favourite Texas congressman Ron Paul's chances of winning office.

Trump was then heckled by one member who shouted: "You have zero chance of getting elected."

Two years on, as a returning president, Mr Trump enjoyed near universal support, though at least one audience member was taken out of the auditorium in National Harbor, Maryland after briefly shouting out insults.

Mr Trump began by showing his gratitude to the CPAC crowd, saying "I love this place", before thanking them for helping get him into power, telling them: "It's patriots like you that did it."

After reiterating many of his key campaign promises, he told the audience: "The future belongs to you. It's going to be bigger and better and stronger than ever before."

The president also urged the fully standing crowd to sit down and rise again to give him a standing ovation, joking that in its absence "the media" would have played down their support for him.

President Donald Trump set to revoke transgender right to use any bathroom of their choice

Trump and Obama

US President Donald J. Trump appears to fully ready to implement most/all of his campaign promises during the last concluded US presidential election, irrespective of who such implementation affects or not in a bid to bring morality values and sanity back to the United States.

The latest of such is his resolve to revoke former president Obama’s guidelines which gave some kind of preferential treatment to transgender students to make use of any bathroom of their choice, which so many persons have said gave sexual predators a upper hand to cause more harms to innocent people.

The proposed document reveals that President Trump will reverse an initiative that poses threats to schools with the pulling out of federal funding if they force transgender students to use particular bathrooms against their will as was introduced by the Obama administration in May 2016.

Though during his campaign to become the Republican presidential nominee, Mr Trump stated that transgender people "should be able to use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate".

However, the President changed his position after coming under criticism from fellow Republicans.

On Tuesday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Mr Trump's "view has been for a long time that this is not something the federal government should be involved in, this is a states' rights issue".

Statistics shows that some 150,000 American children (0.7%) aged between 13 and 17 identify as transgender, according to a study by The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law.

Boris Johnson listed among those who renounced their American citizenship

Boris Johnson

The US treasury department has released a comprehensive list containing details of all those who renounced their American citizenship last year. Among them is Boris Johnson who was born in New York when his parents worked in the States and ranked 5,411 in the list

People from different quarters are wondering if his decision to renounce his US citizenship is a ploy to exonerate himself from the current political situation in the States under the leadership of President Donald Trump, though the decision not be unconnected to America’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Boris announced in 2014 that an heavy tax was imposed on him by the US government after he sold his house in Islington, north London which he paid later on, despite seeing it as ‘absolutely outrageous’.
It was revealed that the American government’s resolve to crackdown on finding out how much dual citizens is forcing a lot of people to renounce their US citizenship.

As dual nationals are liable for tax bills in both countries Boris’ decision was most likely an effort to rid himself of a sizeable bill.

During a visit to New York in 2014, he told National Public Radio that it would be hard to renounce his citizenship: ‘The great United States of America does have some pretty tough rules, you know.

‘You may not believe this but if you’re an American citizen, America exercises this incredible doctrine of global taxation, so that even though tax rates in the UK are far higher and I’m mayor of London, I pay all my tax in the UK and so I pay a much higher proportion of my income in tax than I would if I lived in America.

‘The United States comes after me, would you believe it … for capital gains tax on the sale of your first residence which is not taxable in Britain, but they’re trying to hit me with some bill, can you believe it?’

Foreigners visiting America may be required to submit their social media ID and password for scrutiny

New USA visa rule

There seem to be strong indication that nationals from the Muslim-majority countries wanting to visit the United States may be required to give details of their social media accounts for scrutiny or be barred from entering. According to source, American visa applicants could be told to submit their social media password during the application.

Speaking on the issue, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly stated the proposal could be part of the tough measures being put in place by the government in an effort to fish out suspect terrorists.

Furthermore, he stated that such a check may be narrowed down to the seven countries being placed under security watch, like: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Mr Kelly told a hearing of the Homeland Security Committee: "We're looking at some enhanced or some additional screening.

"We may want to get on their social media, with passwords.

"It's very hard to truly vet these people in these countries, the seven countries. But if they come in, we want to say, what websites do they visit, and give us your passwords. So we can see what they do on the internet."

He said anyone who refused to cooperate would not be allowed into the United States.

He stressed that no decision had been made, but tighter screening would be implemented, even if it means longer delays for awarding US visas to visitors.

"These are the things we are thinking about. But over there we can ask them for this kind of information and if they truly want to come to America, then they will cooperate. If not, next in line."

President Donald Trump vows to reverse Friday’s court ruling against his executive order

President  D.J. Trump

Could Friday’s ruling by a federal judge James Robert which brings to a halt the executive order of President Donald Trump mean that the interests of affected countries under the terror watch list which are subject to rigorous vetting to ensure that anyone from the listed countries coming into the US is free from any form of terrorism or its related activities supersedes that of the American citizens?

According to our source, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the official request made by the US Department of Justice seeking to lift the said ruling, and gave President Trump till Monday (today) to put in more arguments prior to the reaching of a final decision. That also allows states such as Washington and Minnesota to also make good their case.

It was maintained on Saturday night by the acting solicitor general Noel Francisco that the President's authority is "largely immune from judicial control" when it comes to deciding who can enter or stay in the US.

Accordingly, the government also issued out a warning stating the risk thwarting the president’s order could cost the States, as aliens have “no constitutional right to come into the US.

Nevertheless, the president is fully determined to ensure terrorists and their allies do not attack the US and is resolved to overturn the “ridiculous” ruling.

Also in a swift reaction, the president launched some kind of personal attack on James Robert on Saturday, as he called him a "so-called judge" in a series of ill-tempered tweets. Where the Seattle judge was accused of opening "up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart".

It will surprise you how 24 rattlesnakes invaded a house through a broken toilet pipe

Rattlesnakes found in a home

Amazing how dozens of rattlesnake invaded a family home in Texas, United States. The nightmare turned to reality, when the adult snake was discovered in the toilet boil, another found in the basement, more 10 which includes baby snakes were later seen living in the foundations of the infested building.

The petrifying encounter was reported to have occurred in Jones country, near Buffalo Gap in Texas. Thus, pest control company Big Country Snake Removal was called in to take away the snakes.

It was believed  that the snakes got their way into the house, via a broken pipe. The company shared images of the mission to round up the snakes on Facebook.

It said: "Last week we received a call from a family in Jones County who had an adult rattlesnake in their toilet. Yes, in their toilet!

"The snake found its way in from an opening in a relief pipe that I later sealed.

"This was the first snake that the family has seen on the property in several years.

"When I arrived, I immediately noticed a few problematic areas. Intuition took me directly to a storm cellar where I safely removed 13 adult rattlesnakes.

"After a thorough perimeter check, I crawled underneath the house where I removed another 10, five being babies... 24 snakes total, including the toilet snake, and the family had no idea.

"How is this possible? It's actually quite simple - rattlesnake are secretive and can be very cryptic.

"They rely heavily on their camouflage. This is simply how they survive. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they aren't there."

Irrespective of the various protests, new poll shows that majority of Americans are in support of President Trump

President Donald Trump

New poll have revealed that how more Americans give their support to President Trumps travel ban on nationals of certain countries in the US terror list.

According to the survey, which was made available on 30 and 31 January 2017 49 percent of American adults “strongly” or s”omewhat” agree with the President’s executive order, as against 41 percent that “strongly” or “somewhat” disagreed, while 10 percent neither agreed nor disagreed.

Be that as it may, the reactions were part completely along partisan divisions. Exactly 53 percent of Democrats said they "firmly dissent" with Mr Trump's activity while 51 percent of Republicans said they "unequivocally concur."

Mr Trump's official request restricted refugees from entering the United States for 120 days, and it put an inconclusive hang on Syrian exiles. It additionally blocked subjects from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The president during his campaign promised to bring what he called "extreme vetting" to the country's migration framework, said the request he marked on Friday was intended to safeguard the nation and its borders. "This is not a Muslim ban," he said.

Be that as it may, disarray over who was secured by Mr Trump's request left travellers, aircrafts and foreign governments scrambling to get clarity from US authorities, a considerable lot of whom were likewise puzzled.

The Reuters/Ipsos survey discovered 31 percent of Americans feel "more safe" in light of the ban, against 26 percent who said they felt "less safe." Some 38 percent said they felt the United States was setting "a good example" of how best to stand up to deal with terrorism, while 41 percent said the nation was setting "a bad example."

Democrats were more than three circumstances as likely as Republicans to state that the US ought to keep on taking in settlers and refugees, and Republicans were more than three circumstances as likely as Democrats to concur that "banning people from Muslim countries is necessary to prevent terrorism."

American embassy disputes assertions by British government that Muslim travel ban will not affect Brits with dual citizenship from the listed countries

President Trump immigration

Contrary to the assertions made by the UK government, which states that British nationals will not be affected by the travel ban signed by President Donald Trump, the US embassy seem to have contradicted such a claim by the UK.

The assertion was made by Boris Johnson on Sunday as he told the public that he got assurances directly from the US which says only UK citizen who have dual nationality and have travelled to the listed countries would however be affected.

On the contrary, the American embassy issued a statement on Monday morning tagged “urgent notice” stated there will be no issuance of visa to dual national of the countries in the terror watch list.

Stating further that the US embassy would not even book any appointment for dual citizens of the nations pencilled down by President Trump for any visa interview.

“Per U.S. Presidential Executive Order signed on January 27, 2017, visa issuance to aliens from the countries of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen has been suspended effective immediately until further notification,” the US embassy’s statement said.

“If you are a national, or dual national, of one of these countries, please do not schedule a visa appointment or pay any visa fees at this time.

“If you already have an appointment scheduled, please DO NOT ATTEND your appointment as we will not be able to proceed with your visa interview.”

Though a representative of the Prime Minister, explained to newsmen on Monday morning that he is yet to see any notice regarding such and was not in any position to make any comment on that, but he was “confident” that’s the Foreign Secretary’s criteria would stand.

Accordingly, the Foreign Office says Mr Johnson's statement was relied upon an explanation he was given by the White House.

But a UK Government spokesman insisted the FCO guidance "was cleared by the top team in the White House and they are in charge".

A Government source said that after seeing the US Embassy guidance, Mr Johnson "sought clarity from the White House and was informed that the FCO statement was correct".

Theresa May in White House, partners with President Trump

Trump and May

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: British Prime Minister Theresa May has used her official visit to state in strong terms both countries should never go back to the mistakes of the past (Iraq-style intervention) in other countries.

The Prime Minister evoked the relationship between Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan amid a discourse at the yearly Congressional Republican Retreat in Philadelphia, including that "time and again it is the relationship between us that has defined the modern world".

Mrs. May also gave her backing to most of Trump’s foreign policies as she denounces the "malign influence of Iran, vowing to battle Islamic State and promising to "stand up" for the security of Israel.

Mrs May said Mr Trump's triumph would permit the US to be "stronger, greater, and more confident in the years ahead", as she focused on the Brexit vote would re-establish power and autonomy to Britain.

Nevertheless, she forewarned the President over foreign policy positions taken by him amid his campaign, cautioning that he ought to "engage but beware" of Vladimir Putin and Russia and underscoring the work of the UN as needing change, yet fundamental, still.

She told the group of onlookers that the US and UK had a "joint responsibility to lead, because when others step up as we step back, it is bad for America, for Britain and the world".

There must be "no return to the failed policies of the past - the days of Britain and America intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over".

Sky News Diplomatic Editor Dominic Waghorn stated: "It's the kind of speech you would expect from a Prime Minister hoping to make the most of what is clearly a lot of goodwill towards the UK, an administration that seems keen on pursuing the special relationship.

"In a sense it was an appeal for wiser counsels to prevail in the Republican Party and a bit of a dig if you like at some of the ideas that Donald Trump has hinted at."

Mrs May visit has made her the first world leader to address the Republican Retreat.

It was obvious before he became president, Mrs May portrayed Mr Trump's policies as "divisive, stupid and wrong", however in her discourse she adulated his electoral triumph even as she voiced contrasts to some of his motivation.

She depicted the Iran nuclear arrangement - which the US President has undermined to tear up - as fundamentally vital for local security and tried to simplicity fears that China will obscure the West on the universal stage.

President Trump fully ready to implement his campaign promises on immigration to make America great again

President Donald J. Trump

The United States president Donald J. Trump set to fully  implement his campaign promises, which is the building of a wall on the US-Mexico border as well as the stiff immigration laws against countries known for breeding terrorists.

Thus, the taskforce saddled with the responsibility of implementing these policies are already working round the clock to bring them to fruition, as the concern immigration and national security.

President Trump tweeted last night saying: "Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!"

According to the Washington Post, several 'Angel Moms' - mothers who've lost a family member to crime committed by an illegal immigrant - could be present at Trump's announcement.

Also, strong indication has emerged that the President will later in the week sign a lot of executive orders that will strictly restrict people from Muslim countries from coming into the United States.

Accordingly, countries that are earmarked to be affected at the moment are Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, it has been claimed, even visa holders from these countries would be affected.

The report came via Reuters who spoke to several congressional aides and immigration experts briefed on the matter.

However, Muslim campaign groups said they were preparing for the details of the order - but indicated Trump may face a legal fight.

Ibrahim Hooper, spokesperson for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told BuzzFeed: "We are preparing for the inevitability of what kind of ‘Muslim ban’ will be implemented, and we’re working with coalition partners to develop a strategy to defend rights and religious freedoms.

"Everybody is poised, waiting to see what the language is of this version of the Muslim ban, and we’ll go from there.

"Because until you see the specific language it’s difficult to react."

During his campaign, Trump promised to temporarily ban all Muslims from entering the United States as an apparent measure to combat terrorism.

"Donald J Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on," he said at the time.

He later appeared to backtrack when the pledged disappeared from his website.

Trump then suggested he would target specific countries rather than a religion which claims more than 1.6billion people worldwide.

"When I am elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world when there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we understand how to end these threats," Mr Trump said in a June 2016 speech.

But following the Berlin terror attack in December, Trump's hardline stance returned.

"You know my plans all along and I’ve been proven to be right," he told reporters.

"100 per cent correct. What’s happening is disgraceful."

Donald Trump takes the U.S. out of Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and signed anti-abortion bill in a bid to make America great

President Trump

Having started his first week at the White House with a very busy day, President J. Trump has convened a meeting with business executives in a bid to effective implement his corporate tax cut promise and regulations

The President has also made the move to take the United States out of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, saying that such a deal is a "potential disaster for our country".

Though the deal was meant to reduce tariffs and other trade hindrances between America and a number of Pacific Rim nations including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Malaysia and Chile.

Mr Trump described his action on TPP as a "great thing for the American worker".

Speaking to Sky's Diplomatic Editor, Dominic Waghorn, said: "His critics will say it's not putting America first because free trade is good for America, as it is for the rest of the world.

"It allows cheap goods to go to America (and) allows America to export its goods to the Pacific Rim countries more effectively."

Also speaking, White House press secretary Sean Spicer stated in his daily press briefing: "When you enter into these multi-national agreements, you're allowing any country, no matter the size, to have the same stature as the United States in the agreement."

Mr Spicer added that such arrangements were "not always in the best interests of the United States", saying that bi-lateral agreements would be pursued instead.

"This is a strong signal that the Trump administration wants free and fair trade throughout the world," he told reporters.

Asked by Sky's US Correspondent, Cordelia Lynch, why Theresa May will be the first foreign leader to meet President Trump in Washington on Friday, Mr Spicer said: "I think we've always had that special relationship with Britain, and that reflects in the Prime Minister's first visit here.

"He's had a great conversation with her, and he looks forward to having her here, but we can always be closer."

In a move to bring sanity to the country as he promised during his presidential campaign, Mr Trump has signed two other executive orders.

One bans US non-governmental organisations that receive federal funding from providing abortions abroad.

While the other imposes a freeze on federal hiring.

United States 45th president sworn in as he said America’s interest will be his priority before others

President Donald Trump

Against all odds, Donald J. Trump was elected last year against Hilary Clinton who was the projected candidate of former president Barack Obama.

Having won the election at the Electoral College, the 45th president of the most powerful nation on planet earth has been sworn in.

While delivering his speech Donald Trump vowed to put America first and lead a "great national effort" to reconstruct the nation in the wake of being confirmed as its 45th President.

The 70-year-old business mogul swore the oath of office on the west strides of the US Capitol in Washington, cutting down the shade on the administration of Barack Obama.

The occasion was graced by a mammoth crowd who assembled at the National Mall to witness one of the most significant transfer of power from one administration to another in the history American. Among them was Hillary Clinton, his rival in November's race.

At an inaugural lunch after the event, Mr Trump drove an overwhelming applause for Mrs Clinton and her husband Bill, telling the gathering of people he has a considerable measure of regard for those two individuals.

While delivering his inaugural speech, Mr Trump guaranteed to exchange control from Washington to the general population.

Mr Trump said 20 January would be recognized as "the day the people became the rulers of this nation again".

"The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer," the new President said.

Mr Trump further said: "From this day forward it's going to be only America first.

"We must protect our border from the ravages of other countries. I will fight for you with every breath of my body and I will never let you down."

Proceeding with the populist tone of his triumphant battle, Mr Trump said that a "small group" in Washington had "reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost".

"Washington flourished but the people did not share in its wealth," he said.

"Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.

"The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country."

He added: "That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment and it belongs to you."

Referring to "the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives", Mr Trump said the "carnage" seen on American streets "stops right here and stops right now".

The US would "start winning again" like "at no other time, he pledged, promising to manufacture new streets, bridges, airplane terminals, burrows and railroads "all across our wonderful nation".

Turning his thoughtfulness regarding other nations of the world, Mr Trump said the US would "seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world", however with the understanding that it is the privilege of all nations to "put their own interests first".

He proceeded with: "We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilised world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth."

The president likewise issued a call for solidarity tailing a standout amongst the most hostile and divisive race battles in the country's history.

"We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly but always pursue solidarity," he told those gathered.

"When America is united, America is totally unstoppable."

The Republican set aside opportunity to acclaim his ancestor, expressing gratitude toward Mr Obama and his significant other Michelle for their "thoughtful guide" all through the move.

The President is relied upon to start issuing official requests inside hours, following up on battle guarantees.

As of now the White House has declared arrangements for another rocket resistance framework.

As they invited Mr Trump as their new president, Americans likewise said goodbye to Mr Obama following eight years in the Oval Office.

Before he went out for the last time Mr Obama penned a letter to his successor, and utilized Twitter to state it had been "the respect of my life" to serve the American individuals.

French Polynesia government sign MOU with an American firm to construct world’s first floating city in the middle of the Pacific Ocean

World's first floating city

Innovation at its peak as world first floating city to emerge a Pacific Ocean, as construction is billed to kick-start sometime in 2019.

The contract for the construction has already been signed by the parties involved.

According to source, a research firm named the Seasteading Institute, an American firm signed the contract for the dazzling project which is to be built in the centre of the Pacific Ocean with the government of French Polynesia,

Report has it that for over 5 years, the US based construction firm has been working round the clock on how to build "permanent, innovative communities floating at sea".

This innovative idea may due to the fact that French Polynesia, which happens to be a collection of 118 islands in the southern Pacific, is at risk from rising sea levels.

ABC’s report the government of the islands has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the San Francisco-based institute.

Though, more studies will undertaking as a result of the proposed city with regard to the economic and environmental effect of the project and its legal implications.

According to Randolph Hencken, executive director of the institute: "What we're interested in is societal choice and having a location where we can try things that haven't been tried before.

"I don't think it will be that dramatically radical in the first renditions.

"We were looking for sheltered waters, we don't want to be out in the open ocean - it's technologically possible but economically outrageous to afford.

Bestiality appears to becoming a normal way of life in this present generation, as human beings increasingly neglecting normal style to engage in having affairs with animals of various sorts.

A 23-year-old Bradley Hubbard has been blamed for engaging in sick out s3x with his DOG that he named Baby Girl for a considerable length of time.

His arrest came as a result of a tip off from his flatmate who finally had enough and informed relevant authorities he'd been mishandling a pit bull named Baby Girl. The arrest was carried out at his home in Pensacola, Florida.

The flat mate didn't promptly raise the alert, since she would not like to get him captured. She made mention to investigators she "did not want to get Hubbard in trouble".

Cuban migrants

At last, U.S. President Barack Obama brings to an end a longstanding policy which gives residency to Cuban nationals who came to the U.S. illegally.

The 20-year-old strategy permits Cuban migrants who reached US soil to have legal status and become permanent residents after one year.

In return, Havana has consented to begin tolerating Cubans who are dismissed or expelled from the US.

Numerous Cubans in the US say Washington is compensating an administration which has neglected to address human rights concerns.

Be that as it may, President Obama is attempting to proceed with the defrosting of relations with Cuba in his last days of office.

He stated: "With this change we will continue to welcome Cubans as we welcome immigrants from other nations, consistent with our laws."

In an announcement on state TV, the Cuban government praised the move as "an important step in advancing relations'' between the US and Cuba.

Thus, it is misty where relations between the two nations will go now.

Mr Obama's successor, President-elect Donald Trump, has taken a much harder position and could invert the change.

As of recently, the supposed "wet foot, dry foot" strategy has connected exclusively to Cubans, a huge number of whom reached US soil a year ago, including via land.

Foreigners from different nations who go to the US without a visa could be captured and ousted.

more to keep individuals from manhandling the framework - is the best thing to do."

President-elect, Donald J. Trump makes social security and tax reform his priority over ethical reforms

Donald J. Trump

Though the U.S. Congress was yet to resume as at Monday, but report has it that some politicians were already warming up for big power tussle which is expected to result into a dramatic change in the political history of the United States of America.

Monday was reported to be a wet Bank Holiday, without any notification, members of the Republican Party went into a closed door meeting with the sole objective of choosing to gut an ethical panel, which cleared both sides of the political aisle scratching their heads.

Was the President-Elect going to endorse the annihilation of an autonomous supervisory body, the eyes and ears on any potential corruption on Capitol Hill? Shouldn't something be said about his arrangement to deplete the bog?

On Twitter, he was strangely noiseless on the back room moves, picking rather to dispatch an assault on another corporate target - General Motors.

It was said that Mr Trump undermined to hit them with a major border tax for making autos worked in America accessible tax exempt in the US.

However, in a quick reaction, GM immediately confronted his claim, saying just the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback was made in Mexico for worldwide markets with a little number sold in the US.

However, before long, Mr Trump got a political blessing which additionally conveyed some setting to his prior tweet.  

Mr Trump over and again condemned the organization during his campaign. Presently the CEO was discussing a "show of confidence" in Mr Trump's "pro-business environment".

All of that looked like impeccable diversion from the morals debate.

Be that as it may, not long after, again on Twitter, Mr Trump condemned his own political party, recommending incapacitating the Office of Congressional Ethics ought not to be their top need. Stating that changes to tax policy and social insurance, were more essential.

Did he truly not think about the gaggle the day preceding and assuming this is the case, why not? Was inside strain effectively rising over?

Then again was this another political blessing, a possibility for Mr Trump to distinct himself from Republicans and Democrats vigorously condemning of the move to take away the autonomy of a body directing what's going on when others can't.

It's also critical to clarify that Mr Trump hit out at the planning not the substance of the Republican arrangement.

In any case, what the first day of Congress showed the entire world is that Donald Trump stays insubordinate about how and when he shares his perspectives and he isn't terrified to give off an impression of being inconsistent with his associates.

What did we gain from the Democrats? Strategically, not an extraordinary arrangement.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's announcement: "With all due respect, we cannot afford a Twitter Presidency" appeared to be strangely worthless and inconsistent with another wave and pace of legislative issues they need to defy.
