Has Arsene Wenger's time at Arsenal finally run out?

Things have gotten so bad for Arsene Wenger that the embattled Arsenal manager can’t even look to the heavens for help anymore. And for some, Wenger’s future at Arsenal is more important than Britain’s future in the European Union. And this spring things got worse rather than better, with Arsenal losing four consecutive road games for the first time since 1995. We need to think toward next season,” Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil told London’s Daily Mail. He’s been successful for many years … and has always managed to get Arsenal to the Champions League, making Arsenal a big club.

These Guys Really Like Trump

They thought even Mr. Trump might have his price — but luckily, it would be too high for most to afford. In 2016, Mr. Peterson had persuaded his reluctant friend to hear out Mr. Trump, and Mr. Paslow was sold. He gives Mr. Trump credit for buoying the industry by promising to roll back environmental regulations that stifled growth. “Now we’re typists.”If they are adrift in a sea of menace, graft and scorn, Mr. Trump is an anchor. “Trump walked in and asked, what you want — that’s what I’m going to give you,” Mr. Paslow said.

NFL Network’s Mike Mayock goes bananas over orangutans making draft picks

The NFL draft has zoomed past the point of being simply a major event on the sports calendar. — ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 29, 2017Maybe they haven't been told to zip it. — ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 29, 2017This is entirely silly. It’s not like the fifth round of the NFL draft is some sort of sacred television space. If not an orangutan, it would have been some sub-Goodell NFL functionary no one’s ever heard of making the pick.

EPA removes climate change information from website

Story highlights EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has expressed doubt about the reasons for climate changeThe EPA's associate administrator for public affairs said the agency wants "to eliminate confusion by removing outdated language"(CNN) The EPA removed most climate change information from its website Friday, saying in a press release that language on the website is being updated to "reflect the approach of new leadership." EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has expressed doubt about the reasons for climate change, saying in a CNBC interview in March that he was skeptical of the role carbon dioxide plays. "I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do, and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact," Pruitt said. "So, no, I would not agree that it's a primary contributor to the global warming that we see." Visitors to the website now find most climate change information "is being updated," although the page that addresses climate change in the water sector still reflects a basic assessment that global warming is affecting water and precipitation.

Democrats argue way back to power is through small towns won by Trump

Earlier this month, Sen. Tim Kaine began the congressional spring break with a trek through Virginia’s southwestern towns and small cities. It helped Barack Obama win two presidential campaigns and gave Democrats a Senate majority for eight years. Some liberal experts argue that white-working class voters in places like Castlewood and small cities across the Rust Belt have abandoned the Democratic Party forever. But four years later, Trump won by more than 23,000 votes, getting 70 percent to just 27 percent for Clinton. But when they do make the occasional stop next year in those rural towns, Democrats hope that there will be residual goodwill from the time spent in the same places this year.

Having shot a load of 16mm film for a film we called Inciting to Riot we needed a secure facility to cut the stuff.

Story highlights Art exhibits, poetry sessions and dance performances are popping up to mark the 100th day of the Trump administrationTrump-inspired works include jewelry, songs, visual art and limited-edition skateboards(CNN) President Donald Trump's 100th day in office has become, perhaps unintentionally, an inspiration for artists nationwide. Art exhibits, poetry sessions and dance performances are popping up to mark the first three months of the Trump administration, most casting themselves as acts of resistance. "After the election, I had very strong feelings about what was happening, and for a while, I was very frustrated," said Matt Adams, curator of The First 100 Days: Artists Respond , a Houston-based exhibition opening Saturday. When Adams decided to do an art show, he called on artists from "both sides of the aisle" but received no submissions in favor of the President. The First 100 Days: Artists Respond exhibit in Houston"In the exhibit room, I have a 50-foot blank wall that represents the work submitted in support of Trump," he said.

Russia Says U.S. Missiles In Poland, Romania Would Violate Treaty

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A U.S. deployment of ballistic missile defense systems in Romania and plans to place more defense systems in Poland violate an existing arms treaty, Russia’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Saturday. The United States switched on an $800 million missile shield in Romania nearly a year ago and was planning to create another site in Poland, seeing it as vital to defend itself and Europe from so-called rogue states. In 2016, the Kremlin said it was aimed at blunting its own nuclear arsenal. The foreign ministry said on Saturday the plans violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Force Treaty (INFT), signed by Washington and the Soviet Union in late 1980s in an attempt to eliminate nuclear and conventional short-and intermediate range missiles. “The undeniable fact is that this is a gross violation of the INFT obligations,” the ministry said on its website.

China Deports U.S. Citizen Convicted Of Espionage

SHANGHAI, April 29 (Reuters) - China has deported a U.S. citizen who was convicted of espionage this week after being held without trial for two years, removing a source of friction between Washington and Beijing. Sandy Phan-Gillis was arrested in March 2015 while about to leave mainland China for the Chinese-ruled, former Portuguese colony of Macau. A court on Tuesday ordered her deportation after sentencing her to three-and-a-half years in prison for espionage. “The United States welcomes her home,” said the official, who did not want to be identified by name. This is a day of great celebration for her family and all Texans,” Cruz said in a statement, which applauded the State Department and Trump for securing Phan-Gillis’ release.
