… perhaps best capturing the spirit was the German late-night show Neo Magazin Royale, honing in on Trump's apparent desire to provoke countries until we're on the brink of war. "Germany hosted two world wars in the last 100 years," the video explains. "They were the best world wars in the world, and we won both of them big league, anyone who says anything else is fake news-period."

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Who was the first president to be born in the United States, after the US declared independence?

       Martin Van Buren                                                      Source

Martin Van Buren (December 5, 1782 - July 24, 1862) was an American politician who served a single term as the eighth President of the United States (1837-41). A member of the Democratic Party, he served in a number of senior roles, including eighth Vice President (1833-37) and tenth Secretary of State (1829-31), both under Andrew Jackson. Van Buren's inability as president to deal with the deep economic depression following the Panic of 1837 and with the surging Whig Party led to his defeat in the 1840 election.

Martin Van Buren was born on December 5, 1782, in the village of Kinderhook, New York about 20 miles (32 km) south of Albany on the Hudson River. He was the first president to be born in the United States of America, after the United States declared independence.        Source

Always Carry Hand Sanitizer

New Yorkers

A group of New York City subway riders came together to remove Nazi imagery sprawled across a train on Saturday night.

Documented in a Facebook post by Gregory Locke, passengers in a Manhattan 1 train pooled resources to remove swastikas and hate speech from the train. According to Locke, swastikas had been drawn in Sharpie across every window and advertisement in the train car.

According to Locke, one passenger explained that hand sanitizer removes Sharpie and began scrubbing the messages off of the windows. More passengers quickly joined in, clearing the train car of hateful imagery in two minutes.

Locke's post has been shared nearly 200,000 times on Facebook, as of this writing. Chelsea Clinton shared a screenshot of the post on Twitter and encouraged her followers to carry hand sanitizer to combat similar situations in the future.

Ohio School Recovers Recorded Melodies

Holocaust Survivors

Wire recordings of Holocaust survivors singing melodies at a refugee camp in France in 1946 are being heard for the first time in decades, thanks to university employees in Ohio who pieced together a device to listen to them.

University of Akron officials say the six songs were sung by survivors in Henonville, France, for psychologist David Boder, who was among the first to record Holocaust survivors telling their stories during the 1940s. He recorded on steel wire, capturing the melodies with lyrics in Yiddish and German.

"Dr. Boder was determined to give the survivors a voice," said David Baker, a UA professor of psychology and executive director of the Center for the History of Psychology. "Dr. Boder is credited with being the first person to record testimony of Holocaust survivors."

Boder conducted numerous interviews on wire recorders, which were considered state-of-the-art equipment at the time. He also recorded religious services, folk songs and counseling sessions in addition to his work with Holocaust survivors.

Some of Boder's spools were donated to the university in the 1960s and archived, but the content wasn't discovered until a recent project to digitize the recordings.

Warrants 'Threatened' Listing

Oceanic Whitetip Shark

The oceanic whitetip shark's declining status in the wild warrants listing as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, an arm of the federal government has determined.

The shark is found around the world, mostly in open water, and the conservation group Defenders of Wildlife called on the government to list the species. The listing would be the most widespread shark listing in the U.S. to date.

The National Marine Fisheries Service said in a document published in the Federal Register in December that the sharks are indeed likely to become endangered in all or at least a significant portion of their range "within the foreseeable future."

Threats to the sharks include fishing pressure all over the world, as their fins are prized in Asian markets for use in soup. The sharks have declined by 80 to 90 percent in the Pacific Ocean since the 1990s, and 50 percent to 85 percent in the Atlantic Ocean since the 1950s, said Chelsey Young, a natural resource management specialist for the fisheries service.

Doll Maker

Hong Kong

A Hong Kong doll maker with a history of creating figurines of controversial world leaders has launched a replica of US President Donald Trump (R-Grifter) complete with replaceable heads and hands.

Trump follows in a line of other limited edition figures made by the firm including Russian President Vladimir Putin and former Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

The 12-inch (30.5 centimetre) Trump figure comes with a red "Make America Great Again" cap and presidential podium as well as two removable heads with different facial expressions.

Four swappable hands can be fixed to the toy, including one with a jabbing pointed finger.

The doll -- which costs around US$120 -- had received "love and hate" responses, said Howard Cheung, founder of toy maker Dragon in Dream (DiD).

Must Turn Over Foreign Emails


A U.S. judge has ordered Google to comply with search warrants seeking customer emails stored outside the United States, diverging from a federal appeals court that reached the opposite conclusion in a similar case involving Microsoft Corp .

U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas Rueter in Philadelphia ruled on Friday that transferring emails from a foreign server so FBI agents could review them locally as part of a domestic fraud probe did not qualify as a seizure.

The judge said this was because there was "no meaningful interference" with the account holder's "possessory interest" in the data sought.

Google, a unit of Mountain View, California-based Alphabet Inc , said in a statement on Saturday: "The magistrate in this case departed from precedent, and we plan to appeal the decision. We will continue to push back on overbroad warrants."

The ruling came less than seven months after the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said Microsoft could not be forced to turn over emails stored on a server in Dublin, Ireland that U.S. investigators sought in a narcotics case.

Proposed Fine To Get Hearing

Dakota Access

The developer of the Dakota Access pipeline will have to present evidence at a hearing to prove the company didn't willfully violate North Dakota rules when it failed to provide details of how it planned to avoid disturbing Native American artifacts during construction, state regulators said.

Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners last October diverted construction of the $3.8 billion pipeline around artifacts without running the plan by the Public Service Commission, which oversees pipelines. Commission staffers say that warrants a fine of at least $15,000, even though the artifacts weren't disturbed.

ETP maintains it didn't intentionally violate state rules and that public comments in November by Public Service Commission Chairwoman Julie Fedorchak illustrate the minor nature of the incident. Fedorchak said she was "disappointed" with the developer's conduct but acknowledged it might have resulted from miscommunication within the company.

The three-member commission on Tuesday rejected the company's request to dismiss the complaint, saying whether there was a willful violation should be determined at a hearing. The commission's order also contends Fedorchak's comments aren't relevant.

An administrative law judge will oversee the hearing, but the commission will make the final decision on a fine. The hearing wasn't immediately scheduled.

Inside Disney's Secret Club You Could Wait a Lifetime to Get Into


Police Escort


Congressman Tom McClintock, a Republican from California, on Saturday faced a rowdy crowd at a packed town hall meeting in Northern California, and had to be escorted by police as protesters followed him shouting "Shame on you!"

McClintock was constantly interrupted and booed as he defended his party's national agenda during the hourlong event at a theater in downtown Roseville, the population center of his sprawling congressional district, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Hundreds of protesters stood outside chanting "Vote him out," while those inside the theater held signs that read "Resist," ''Dump Tom McTrump," and "Climate change is real."

"I understand you do not like Donald Trump (R-Con Man)," McClintock said. "I sympathize with you. There have been elections where our side has lost ... Just a word of friendly advice: Remember that there were many people in America who disagreed with and feared Barack Obama just as vigorously as you disagree with and fear Donald Trump."

A video posted on the newspaper's website shows demonstrators chanting "Shame on you!" as they follow McClintock who walks to a waiting car surrounded by police officers.

Israel Allowing Export?

Medical Marijuana

An Israeli government committee gave an initial nod on Sunday for the export of medical marijuana in what could be a windfall for companies in Israel, widely regarded as a leader in research in the field.

A government statement announcing the vote said it could take months for the legislation to make its way through parliament.

In the United States, 28 states have legalized marijuana for medical use and since 2012, Colorado, Alaska, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, D.C. have also approved marijuana for recreational use. The market there, by some estimates, will reach $50 billion over the next decade.

Israel is widely regarded as one of the world leaders in medical marijuana research, even though the local market is small. Only 23,000 people have Health Ministry permits to purchase medical cannabis from nine licensed suppliers, creating a market of $15 million to $20 million at most.

Weekend Box Office


M. Night Shyamalan's multiple-personality thriller "Split" led the box office for a third-straight week, an unusual streak for a low-budget horror film.

According to studio estimates Sunday, "Split" came out on top again with $14.6 million in North American ticket sales, bringing the Universal Pictures release's three-week haul to $98.7 million.

Surely hurt by the continued strength of "Split," Paramount's horror option, "Rings," came in second with an estimated $13 million. The sequel was an attempted revival the dormant franchise begun with 2002's "The Ring" and followed up with 2005's "The Ring Two."

The weekend's other debut, "The Space Between Us," flopped altogether. The STX Entertainment release, starring Asa Butterfield as a boy who comes to Earth after being raised by astronauts on Mars, made a mere $3.8 million. It cost $30 million to make.

Universal's "A Dog's Purpose" came in third with $10.8 million in its second weekend. Audiences have largely shrugged off the outcry over a leaked video from the film's production of a frightened German shepherd being urged into churning water.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers also are included. Final three-day domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1. "Split," $14.6 million ($14.6 million international).
    2. "Rings," $13 million ($15.2 million international).
    3. "A Dog's Purpose," $10.8 million.
    4. "Hidden Figures," $10.1 million.
    5. "La La Land," $7.5 million.
    6. "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter," $4.5 million.
    7. "Sing," $4.1 million.
    8. "Lion," $4 million.
    9. "The Space Between Us," $3.8 million.
   10. "xXx: The Return of Xander Cage," $3.7 million ($12.4 million international).
