Many people have become numb to this Administration ''s wrongdoing after almost three years of constant scandal. Some feel that no matter what Trump does, he 'll never be held accountable. Why should they invest time in today ''s awful news, when it will give way in a few days or weeks without anything changing?This is the challenge the Democrats face as they open public impeachment hearings this week. Can they get the country to pay attention? Can they produce a coherent narrative that will help people understand this most serious of Trump Administration debacles?
El Tri manager Tata Martino has called in a number of young players as he looks to strengthen both the senior team and the group that will seek Olympic qualification and then contest the tournament in Tokyo. But there also are stars like Hirving Lozano, Hector Herrera and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona in the mix and they're not just in Bermuda to enjoy the beach.So how will Mexico line up? Will Martino blend experience with youth, try to play the most experienced team possible or toss the young players into the deep end?

This isn #x27;t the wrapped knuckles sludge Windstein has made his name on. Instead, he embraces a more mellow approach, comparatively at least, while retaining the overt heaviness of his signature sound with lurching riffs and simple, effective melodies which have shades of his affection for #x27;70s rockers Thin Lizzy and UFO. "The idea to record a solo album started out as, #x27;I m going to do an acoustic record, #x27; but that s just so clich , " Windstein said of the album #x27;s origins. "Nothing against that, but it s been done a million times. But I had been thinking about doing something a little more mellow for some time. It s something I wanted to do, I needed to do. It s another side of my songwriting, my personality. It s another side of me. It s something I did for myself. It s not even that this isn t heavy, because there are bits and pieces that are very heavy. But even the heaviest riff on this is something I couldn t really do in Crowbar. If some Crowbar fans don t like it, I ll understand. But I hope people dig it. "

The characters of The Walking Dead were up against a number of horrific events this weekend. On top of being constantly attacked by walkers, the team were also being secretly sabotaged by the Whisperers.

NEW DELHI : Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd has cautioned that offering any relief to rival operators after a Supreme Court judgement put a 92,000 crore burden on the telecom industry would go against the judgement and set a wrong precedent for other sectors. In a 1 November letter to Union telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, the telecom arm of Reliance Industries Ltd also alleged that Bharti Airtel Ltd and Vodafone Idea Ltd have enough funds to pay dues. Any reduction in the financial liability of the licensees arising from the judgement of the Court would in effect be rewarding them for their conduct in initiating frivolous and vexatious proceedings to delay payment of their just dues," Jio said in its letter, a copy of which was seen by Mint.

This confluence may present a solid buying opportunity.
Key point: The Cold War is full of examples of near nuclear disasters and those remain a threat today. What happens when you use the same satellites to control nuclear forces as well as conventional troops? Accidental nuclear war, that''s what could happen. That''s the warning by a Washington think tank, which argues that the U.S. is inviting nuclear war by using the same command and communications systems to oversee both nuclear and conventional forces. But such "dual use" systems risk an inadvertent nuclear war, because an attack on non nuclear assets, such as satellites or radars, could be perceived as an attempt to cripple America''s nuclear deterrent. The Trump administration''s draft nuclear policy already states that cyberattacks against America, or attacks on U.S. satellites, could constitute a strategic threat that merits a nuclear response. But this raises a problem called "nuclear entanglement," where the traditionally bright lines between nuclear and non nuclear systems become blurred. In a study earlier this year, the Carnegie Foundation for International Peace pointed out that Russia and China were guilty of entanglement. For example, Russia keeps nuclear submarines and bombers at the same bases as conventional ships and planes: thus a strike by conventional U.S. forces against conventional Russian forces the sort of operation common in World War II could be mistaken by Russia as an American strike on its nuclear forces, triggering Russian nuclear retaliation. China plans to attack American satellites to disable U.S. command systems and smart weapons that rely on satellite guidance, because China believes this to be a part of conventional warfare despite the Trump administration declaring otherwise. But a new Carnegie study says the U.S. is making the same mistake. "Starting in the last decade of the Cold War, the United States has increased reliance on dual use systems by assigning nonnuclear roles to C3I assets that used to be employed solely for nuclear operations," writes James Acton, co director of Carnegie''s Nuclear Policy Program. "Until the mid 1980s, for example, U.S. early warning satellites were used exclusively for detecting the launch of nuclear armed missiles. Today, they enable a variety of nonnuclear missions by, for example, providing cuing information for missile defenses involved in intercepting conventional ballistic missiles." The U.S. has also scrapped its Cold War land based communications systems for controlling nuclear forces. Which means that satellites have become virtually the only means for nuclear command and control, and those precious satellites are also handling non nuclear communications. Even as cyberwarfare and anti satellite weapons have emerged as major threats, U.S. satellite systems have become less redundant. In the 1980s and 1990s, the U.S. had two satellite based communication systems for nuclear weapons. "Today, the United States is in the process of deploying just four Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellites that will be the nation''s sole space based system for transmitting nuclear employment orders once legacy Milstar satellites have been retired," writes Acton. Similarly, one of two radio networks for communicating with nuclear missile submarines has been shut down. Acton explores several scenarios where the U.S. could overreact. "Russia might attack ground based or space based U.S. early warning assets to defeat European missile defenses that were proving effective in intercepting its nonnuclear missiles," he writes. "Washington might see such attacks, however, as preparations to ensure that limited nuclear strikes by Russia could penetrate the United States' homeland missile defenses." The U.S. fears that Russia could launch limited nuclear strikes to paint America into a corner, where it must either back down or risk escalating into full nuclear war. But Russia could attack dual use communications systems with the goal of disrupting the operations of U.S. conventional forces, which the U.S. might perceive as an attempt to cripple U.S. nuclear communications. These issues apply to a lesser extent to China, which knows (and the U.S. knows that China knows) that a Chinese first strike wouldn''t be powerful enough to prevent massive American retaliation. Still, a Chinese attack on, say, the Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radar system could be taken as the prelude to a Chinese nuclear strike.

Acton does point out that the U.S. reaction will depend to some extent on context, such as whether Russia has placed its nuclear forces on alert. But this is a slender reed on which to avoid nuclear destruction. Untangling nuclear entanglement will not be easy. Russia, China and the U.S. are likely to balk at the cost of separating their nuclear and non nuclear command and control systems and facilities. Nor are they like to accept limits on weapons that threaten an opponent''s command and control systems, even if those systems have a nuclear function. Acton does suggest a few mild measures to mitigate the problem, such as more resilient command and control systems, or small space based sensors useful for detecting ICBM launches, but not for conventional warfare. The Carnegie report is particularly significant for missile defense. The proliferation of conventional ballistic missile threats against targets like ports, airfields or ships at sea means that missiles and missile defense have become an integral part of conventional warfare. This in turn means that missile defense systems have become conventional targets. Yet to attack them as part of a conventional war means scaring your opponent into fearing that this is the opening salvo of a nuclear strike.
