Stephen Hawking: I fear I may not be welcome in Donald Trump's US

Five most powerful people in Britain are women, says Prof Stephen Hawking

But, he added, Britain hoped that Mr Trump's administration would learn to appreciate the role of the United Nations in protecting domestic and global security.

"American families make tough decision every day about their own budgets; it is time Washington does the same", he said.

Includes $250 million in cuts to coastal research programs that help prepare communities to deal with storms and rising seas. "The thing is, ONC has been given a tremendous amount of responsibility in the 21st Century Cures Act, so this 'interoperability" thing we are dealing with is something that's needed to support the healthcare industry as a whole.

"While almost every Republican claims to be a fiscal conservative, many of them defend subsidy programs important to their states or personal interests", observed Chris Edwards, editor of the Cato Institute's DownsizingGovernment.org, who tossed out rural business subsidies as an example.

The blueprint would also eliminate funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Interagency Council on Homelessness, the National Endowment for the Arts and a number of other agencies.

Thursday's proposal doesn't spell out all details of the cuts.

We're going to keep our citizens safe", the president said at a rally in Nashville. "We're gonna win it, we're gonna win it". Trump has moved to appeal against the federal judges emergency halt and take it "as far as it needs to go".

Jayhawks-Spartans Among NCAA Games To Complete Second Round
In the end, I think this will go down as one of the best games in the tournament and Kansas squeaks out a tight victory. Sure, all those teams had plenty of blue chip underclassmen, but they rode the shoulders of their upperclassmen guards.

Gunmen raid Kabul hospital, leave 38 dead
The NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg ‏said he strongly condemns the inhumane Kabul attack on hospital patients and staff. Ghulam Azrat, another survivor, said he escaped through a fourth floor window after attackers killed two of his friends.

One of the most important ways the Federal Government sets priorities is through the Budget of the United States. Here is a background article from 2011, when Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives tried to kill the peace institute.

The budget blueprint completely eliminates one billion dollars in funding for arts and culture programs.

Once you read the body of the story, however, it's clear that this author is not impressed by Trump's budget - which would slash money for everything from Meals on Wheels to student financial aid to climate change research. The budget also seeks to reduce "administrative costs and rebalance federal contributions to research funding". "And I think for the first time in a long time, you have an administration that is looking at the compassion of both sides of the equation", Mulvaney said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Congressman Jim McGovern is bashing President Donald Trump's budget proposal, calling the proposal "reckless". It does not, however, cut any money for those who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) because that program is not part of the "discretionary" spending this budget addresses. Cuts to the Agriculture budget would end programs that fund water and sewage systems - and even the federal flood insurance program would take a hit. Among the services getting cut from the budget entirely are: before and after school tutoring programs, an educator training programs in at-risk schools, need-based scholarships to college students, programs that help disabled and non-native English speakers to sharpen their skills.

"SEOG recipients' income levels are comparable to Pell recipients". (Trump's administration in its budget blueprint calls that program "ineffective.") The administration sees it differently: The proposed budget does expand the Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments, another program created to help the unemployed find work; that program saves $536 per claimant, according to the administration's budget.

Studies have shown that after school programs do help students' performance in terms of metrics such as grades, test scores, attendance, participation ratings and more.
