This shows all kinds of new business activities created by the recent Trump actions.

Are these the same bookies who gave Trump an 15% chance of being elected?

Actually based on what I've seen and read it was a pretty darn accurate reporting of the events and what people thought about it. Yes it has a Eropean slant because well Trump and the administration were hiding from the US press. They held zero press briefings so the Ameri point of view became filtered by the Euro point of view because that is who talked to the press.

This was an accurate report that happens to paint a picture of a guy that was played by the professionals. Trump supporters will be pleased because Trump was the tough guy but they won't understand what happened... that Trump embarrassed himself and all of America.

Sad...but not biased. The truth kinda sucks huh?
You're right, it has a European slant.  That's anti-Trump.  So you agree with my point.  It's biased, not fair and balanced as Bart claimed.  They could have added to the article something like, "Although many Europeans leaders were concerned at Trump's antagonistic approach, he was in keeping with much of what he promised his voters - that he would put American interests first."

But you didn't get that because not only are Europeans anti-Trump, many are anti-American.  And the reporters there who work for Reuters are as biased in their viewpoints.

This would make no sense.
Nikon has two new camera's dealing with high iso - and they made serious effort to make the 64 asa useful in the d810. The d810 is a succes.
Why make a camera that goes back in time and has less quality at low iso than the d810?

Providing this is true, but I am again doubtful about this story, there would be several possibilities...
- Nikon wasn't able to secure a sensor with the same level of performance?
- They didn't understand that the amazing quality of the D810 at ISO64 was the main reason for its success?
- They had to make this design choice to enable other key features of the D820/D850 or of another camera using this sensor (EVF version,...)?

Cheers,
Bernard

On UK betting markets, the odds on Trump failing to see out his four-year term dropped to 5/6 from evens on Betfair, implying a 55 percent chance that he will leave.
Betfair was also offering odds of 12/5 percent that Trump would leave office this year, implying a 27 percent chance that he would depart. Betfair said that the odds for such an early departure had never been shorter.
Spokeswoman Jessica Bridge added that Ladbrokes had taken close to 50,000 pounds on various wagers over Trump's future, including whether he would be impeached and the year he might be replaced.

This shows all kinds of new business activities created by the recent Trump actions.

Modern equivalent of an old theme?

The scene actually extents another set of windows to the right, but too bad, the moment i tried to take a picture, some really heavy dude drives up with his scooter and parks it dead smack in front of me and throws me one of those "fucku" looks.

I decided not to ask politely...

A bit of tweaking for a fine image...

Meaningless to me. My most used ISO on medium format is 50. If it had 25 I would use that.

1. doable, but fraught with headaches.

2. One thing I forgot to ask is which paper feed path to use, assuming paper no thicker/stiffer than GFS? Ive always been able to get away with the top feed to date. My memories of using the front and back feeds from previous Epsons are not happy ones. I would expect the top feed to work regardless of paper length. Certainly don't have two or three feet of clear space behind the printer to work with.
1. Easy as, no headaches.
2. Always the rear feed. Just make an extension or rear support for the wall behind. I use an empty roll. Use Mirage Print for pretty much any size you want.

I haven't tried it myself, but OTOH I doubt it would have the same side effects:

I haven't used DEET either, but I was just told of one shorts-wearing tramper here in NZ who did. It repelled the sandflies but also glued him to the plastic toilet seat.

If only you could read further than what you erroneously think confirms your own bias, you'd see how silly your remark is. Not 100% objective means that some news can have some bias in one aspect of the metrics used, and no bias, or in another direction, for another metric. On average (which is why they score on a number of criteria, like political bias, how factual the information is, and if the media if they provide links to credible, verifiable sources) the result will be, just that, an average, based on objective criteria.  They apply an equal weighting on the importance of the scoring parameters for determining bias, one could also use other weightings or more parameters which would also give objective results.

So either you are (convincingly) pretending that you do not understand statistics, or you are really that ignorant.

While I can appreciate your architecture photography, I'm truly disappointed in your unconstructive trollish conduct in these matters, but feel free to go on, we live in a free world.

And to get back to the subject of the thread, despite your attempt to derail it, here's some more news from a least biased source

Senate intelligence panel requests Trump campaign documents: Washington Post
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-russia-documents-idUSKBN18M2QF

and at the same time:

In shakeup, Trump to set up 'war room' to repel attacks over Russia probe
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-warroom-idUSKBN18M2FU

And,

Trump hits out at 'fake news' following Kushner reports
http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-kushner-idUSKBN18O0G0

""It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media," Trump wrote in a series of Twitter posts on Sunday.

Shortly after the tweets, Trump's Homeland Security Secretary, John Kelly, made the rounds of Sunday television news shows to praise any so-called back channel communications, especially with Russia, as "a good thing."

The White House faces mounting questions about potential ties between Russia and Trump's presidential campaign, which are also the subject of criminal and congressional investigations. Trump officials were preparing to establish a "war room" to address an issue that has begun to dominate his young presidency."


So, either it's fake news, or it is a good thing. It can't be both, can it? Well, I suppose that with Trump anything's possible.

Cheers,
Bart
For the heck of it I looked up Reuters, who you think is fair and balanced,  and clicked on the first recent Reuters news story I saw. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-g7-summit-trump-allies-analysis-idUSKBN18O0BP?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+reuters%2FtopNews+%28News+%2F+US+%2F+Top+News%29

It's full of bias.  It's all taken from the European standpoint, what's good for them.  It makes backhanded swipes of Trump as a disaster.  Yet, it never mentions that he is acting mainly as he promised his voters during the campaign.  He doesn't work for Europe or European leaders. If they don't like his pressure, let them get a different job.  He doesn't have to kiss their asses.  He works for America and Americans and their security and economic needs.  Yet this aspect of his position is missing from the article.  That's why Reuters is biased to the left and why you are reading biased liberal news even with Reuters.
