President Vladimir Putin has marked the fifth anniversary of what Moscow considers the day Crimea became part of Russia by visiting Ukraine's Black Sea peninsula, as NATO, the United States, and the European Union again condemned what they called the "illegal " land grab. On March 18, 2014, Putin signed a treaty that Moscow claims made Ukraine's Crimea region part of Russia, after Russian forces seized control of the peninsula and organized a referendum that was not recognized by the international community. Ukraine and the West have slammed Russia's move as an "illegal " annexation, leading to sanctions against Russian individuals and entities. The annexation of Crimea and Russia's role in the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine, where government forces have been fighting against Russia backed separatists since April 2014, sent ties between Moscow and the West plunging to post Cold War lows. The conflict in eastern Ukraine has left around 13,000 people dead, some 30,000 injured, and uprooted well over 1 million Ukrainian citizens, according to UN and Ukrainian officials. In Washington, Kurt Volker, the U.S. special envoy for Ukraine, called the fifth anniversary of Russia's annexation of Crimea a "sad day. " "This is an illegal occupation, an illegal seizure of territory, and we fundamentally stand behind Ukraine in insisting that its territorial integrity be restored, " Volker told journalists. In a statement, NATO described the annexation of Crimea as "a serious breach of international law and a major challenge to Euro Atlantic security. " The Western military alliance's North Atlantic Council criticized Russia's "ongoing and wide ranging military build up " in Crimea, and raised concerns over its "efforts and stated plans for further military build up " in the Black Sea region. The allies also accused the "Russian de facto authorities in illegally annexed Crimea " of carrying out human rights abuses against "Ukrainians, the Crimean Tatars, and members of other local communities, " including "extrajudicial killings, abductions, enforced disappearances, violence, arbitrary detentions, arrest, and torture. "They said that there would be no return to "business as usual " with Moscow until there was a "a clear, constructive change in Russia's actions. "

TwitterEmailLarry Busacca Getty ImagesFacebookTwitterEmailWhen Kanye West released the song and video for "Famous " in 2016, he instantly reignited his feud with Taylor Swift. You know, the one that started when he hopped onto the stage at the 2009 VMAs and interrupted Swift #x27;s acceptance speech, and peaked in 2016 when West #x27;s wife, Kim Kardashian West, called her a liar and had the receipts for it? Well, the beef that launched a million snake emoji lives on thanks to a simple "like " on Instagram.The most recent chapter gives us insight into what Swift may really think about the video, which showed a naked look alike wax figure of her in bed next to West, along with 10 other nude figures including Donald Trump, Amber Rose, Chris Brown, Rihanna, and Bill Cosby. West #x27;s song features the lyrics "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex Why? I made that bitch famous. " The beef kicked off again because West said he got approval from Swift to use the lines, which Swift denied before Kardashian West released recordings on Snapchat that appeared to show Swift green lighting the "might still have sex " line (Swift says she didn #x27;t give the go ahead for the "that bitch " line).
One of the central Game of the Thrones questions that needs to be answered in season eight is who will sit on the Iron Throne after all of the wars are over. After eight seasons of teasing viewers with options ranging from Daenerys to Jon Snow to Gendry, someone decent has to finally earn that uncomfortable chair, right? Well, maybe not. The looming threat of the Night King combined with the possibility of a fiery battle between the Mother of Dragons and Cersei could mean that the Iron Throne will be destroyed in battle. There's an equally strong possibility that whoever inherits it next will do away with the throne because of what it symbolizes. While that could be frustrating for fans, eliminating that divisive symbol of power could be the best thing to ever happen to the Seven Kingdoms. The Iron Throne is a monstrous thing. According to A Wiki of Ice and Fire, Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of Westeros, had the throne made out of the swords of his enemies. Since then, it's been the central seat of power in the Seven Kingdoms and it has inspired far too many wars as the Targaryens, Baratheons, and others battled for the right to claim it.

With the bulls almost guaranteed a position above $145, they are now starting to eye the $150 position. Although difficult to get over, this is one of the more crucial resistance positions that could well establish a more long term bullish view.Although there is still a long way to go for Ethereum to hit $150, the current bullish charge could offer the required momentum to see the coin this high. But, in the next couple of hours, the coin will have to stay green if this prospect is to remain achievable. Also, the wider market rally will also have to persist throughout the weekend, giving ETH the best chance possible.
The launch of this new subscription service is not a big surprise. Viveport has always been a big part of HTC;s VR ecosystem. What is remarkable, however, is how the new service is not limited to HTC;s own VR headsets. Instead, Oculus Rift owners can access all of the content as well. With hundreds of apps and games to choose from, there should be something for everyone. Moreover, any standalone VR headset built on VIVE WAVE will benefit from this subscription service as well. HTC also announced a different revenue split for developers to attract more content. By offering developers 80% of the earnings per sale, an important step in the right direction has been taken. It is expected the service will launch globally on April 2nd, and a yearly subscription of $79 will also be available.
