The Hollywood Reporter spoke with the head writer of the eerily dead-on episode, "Bart to The Future," recently to find out exactly how he arrived at such a once-unthinkable scenario. In the episode, Lisa Simpson is president and at one point says, "As you know, we've inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump. It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane.
But while The Simpsons may have predicted the future, Scandal presented its fictionalized Trump in an episode set in the now, with Hollis Doyle (Gregg Henry) returning last Thursday as a Trump-like candidate who felt all too close to the real thing. Who knows what show might take on the former reality host next.

But I think with the Indy there's no point. There is always going to be overlap. The ship may be a different tier, or have some other characteristics that make it different.
Didn't she was the same as the Richelieu. I think the US refit of Richelieu would be better as a premium but as it's head of class and Dunkerque, already in the game (also head of class) it won't happen.
They won't put two of the last french BBs as premiums if they want to make a french BB line (they have the material). In term of unique flavor, Jean Bart would be the very same as stock Richelieu, that's why I don't understand it as a Premium choice. Richelieu all the way. That US AA refit. It will be god tier. Gascogne would've had two turrets like Richelieu and Jean Bart but with one facing forward and one facing aft. The armor is rather weak already, why make it worse by showing more broadside to have the aft turret shoot.
It's Graf Spee all over again. Why loose the flavor and strenght of the full frontal turrets. I don't know if the Jean Bart offers something sufficiently different or special to sell it while having the ship's class in the tech tree.
But there's the Prinz Eugen, so t could happen. Weaknesses would be it's lacking long range AA, low number of secondaries, and, despite supercharges, still sporting just 8 15 inch guns at T8. Guessing that she will also get a radar consumable due to being the last Battleship ever built (Jean Bart really doesn't count).
For this reason, sources which quote HMS Vanguard as having gun ranges in excess of 32,000 yards (29,260 m) are somewhat misleading, as such a range would have required the use of super charges, which she never carried. She was a Franken-ship made from spare hull and guns, although she was built I think her strange construction could easily lend to creative balancing. Honestly I think there would be a lot of hate for releasing Vanguard at tier 8 price tag and she didn't feel good to play.
We dont need a tier 8 Krazny Krym. Maryland got more AA.
West Virginia got more AA, enhanced radar, thicker decks, better torpedo defenses, and so forth. In effect, she was a new ship built atop the old. With the right tweaks, such as more accurate guns and possibly radar, she would make a decent tier 8 premium. The low speed would be a major downside, but she would be very strong in other areas.
I don't know if it will happen considering Alabama is coming and the number of US premiums already live. Something that can repair other ships as well.
Yeah, we're getting the USS Alabama, but I'm fairly sure that was pretty much put down as SoonTM, and is something we can only just wait for at this point. In the mean time I'd be rather content with a Tier VIII Premium Destroyer, or Cruiser.These advancements create new challenges for marketers. Far from a controlled consumer view of a brand (TV, outdoor, instore), marketers will face multiplatform, multi-device, in and out of walled gardens, all differently experienced by every consumer.
Geotargeting will be seen as a commercial opportunity: KFC has used Snapchat geofilters instore, and Snapchat itself is using geofilters to let people know where to find a Snapbot vending booth. We will see more sequential content as marketers consider using retargeting for a more strategic and persuasive catenation of consumer messages.
Consumers will stop seeing ads for a mattress they searched for, and bought, two weeks earlier.
Marketers will try to introduce emotion into this (supposedly) highly rational, data-driven ecosystem as a point of difference, and to create a longer term bond with the consumer. However, marketers will start to expect consistent metrics that they can compare, despite being in permanent beta. Done poorly, this targeting can be intrusive, creepy, off-point and ineffective. In 2017, marketers will focus on finding the right balance between precision and intrusion.
Advertisers and their agencies will align on the components of effective targeting based on brand affinity, interests and the appropriate demographics. Most marketers now understand that post-purchase targeting misses the opportunity to influence the consumer before they have decided on a brand. Effective targeting will successfully harmonize mid-cycle path to purchase variables with the requisite interest-based and demographic variables, and empower advertisers to identify the most addressable audiences for media activation.
This shift in approach will help marketers and their agencies focus on brand effectiveness from the moment the media begins. Marketers who do this successfully will amplify the power of their digital creative and influence the most appropriate and receptive audience for their brand. Digital advertising has had its wake up call and can no longer hit the snooze button.
The industry has been jolted into action by the continued rise of ad blocking software across desktop and mobile devices, and forecasts of billions in lost advertising revenue. We predict marketers will fight back with genuine improvements for consumers. More confident that UX basics will be addressed, publishers will be proactive in trying to win the hearts, minds and screen space of consumers.
Marketing campaigns will focus both on deterring new ad blocking users and discouraging existing users. The ethics of ad blocking will also be questioned as software providers increasingly attempt to profit from ad authorisation. Meanwhile, the technical ping-pong against ad blockers will continue. This will return short-term dollars to publishers but will override consumer wishes, so the safer long-term strategy will be to address the core concerns which have drawn people to ad blocking.
Expect to see the digital advertising industry urgently responding to these specific challenges throughout the coming year. In a media landscape of ongoing dramatic change, advertisers will more aggressively adopt multiple media alternatives to reach and connect with their audiences throughout 2017. Synergies will become more important than any single channel and the collective weight of all channels put together. Marketers will be focused on understanding the role each media plays within a broader plan and how they rub off to produce synergistic effects.
The concept of synergies has been around for some time but what has changed is the planning aspect and the application of a discipline to the selection of channels to maximise its impact. These numbers are not only growing but increasingly we are seeing non-TV synergies emerging as advertisers and agencies start to get their heads around this.At odds with him, she yet took time to think of his creature needs.

With the addition of Japanese stud Shohei Ohtani on Friday, the team saw its World Series odds dramatically increase.
Coming into the day, the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook listed the Angels at 50-1 to win the World Series. After the Ohtani news, that went to 30-1.
Japanese star Shohei Ohtani's signing with the Los Angeles Angels had ripple effects in Las Vegas as well. The Angels go from 50-1 to 30-1 to win the World Series at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. With their new odds, the Angels would be in the same category as the Tampa Bay Rays, Toronto Blue Jays, Seattle Mariners and Milwaukee Brewers. Note that those odds are from November and may have changed since then.
When Westgate released its odds in November, the Angels were tied with the Chicago White Sox, Atlanta Braves and San Francisco Giants at 50-1. While Ohtani should help the Angels, the team is still considered a fringe playoff contender according to Las Vegas.
None of the teams with 30-1 odds made the postseason in 2017, though many came close. That includes the Angels, who finished at 80-82. Many believe Ohtani can be a difference-maker, at least on the mound. If Ohtani is that good, you might as well put your money down now, because it would be tough to see the Angels miss the postseason with the next Babe Ruth and Mike Trout on the same team.
Actually, you might want to put your money on the Angels even if you believe Ohtani is merely a good player instead of a legendary one.
The level of uncertainty surrounding Ohtani could mean Vegas is underrating him at the moment. NBC Sports ChicagoCreate Your Website - Start HereYahoo. Ana: Democracy is ruined by those opposing free speech.

Elsewhere, the 8-4 Carolina Panthers will look to crawl to a tie with the 9-4 New Orleans Saints for the NFC South lead as they host the 10-2 Minnesota Vikings. Carolina would technically be in second place even with a win, as it lost to New Orleans twice this year and is on the wrong end of a head-to-head tiebreaker. However, a Panthers victory would create an interesting NFC South logjam, as New Orleans, Carolina or the 8-5 Atlanta Falcons could lay claim to the division.

But when they face off, neither one is prepared.
Because when real life meets true love, all bets are off. Minerva Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet, even if he is gorgeous and successful Calvin Morrisey. Cal knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs, even if she does wear great shoes and keep him on his toes.
When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But fate has other plans, and it's not long before Min and Cal meet again. Soon they're dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a freakishly intelligent cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of.

The itinerary was customized to our needs with no reluctance or difficulty. This is our second Nordic Visitor trip and they both have been wonderful trips.
We've enjoyed many of the excursions you've recommended and are grateful for the expertise of your staff who planned our trips. When you add Faroe Islands to your itineraries, let us know. Was a great time. Tour was a lot of fun. The Norwegian drivers and hotel staff some of the very friendly and helpful.
Tour was a great value. Lifetime of great memories. Makes me want to go back to Norway again. It was a wonderful trip, all the arrangements went smoothly and we felt very comfortable traveling Iceland.
The organisation and the information were fantastic and would highly recommend Nordic Visitor to others Very smooth vacation. Days were organized well so there was lots of time to stop to see the things we wanted to see and not feel rushed.
Hotels were easy to find. Everyone we spoke with at Nordic Visitor was friendly and helpful (as were all the Icelanders we encountered). I am already telling everyone who asks about it to go visit Iceland. We had a great time, and our experience with Nordic Visitor was excellent. We will highly recommend you to our friends who are visiting the countries you cover. This is an outstanding travel company. The accommodation houses also commented that your company was great to deal with and reliable.
We would recommend Nordic Visitor to any of our family and friends. Many thanks also to Annie for her wonderful and professional service. It was so great to have suggestions along the route. And we really appreciated how stress free the whole process was.
It can be overwhelming traveling in another country, and this was just perfect. I have to say I am impressed with the care and attention I received from the company before and during my visit. I want to mention two examples in particular.
On the first day of my arrival in Reykjavik I forgot my credit card at the local post office and had to pick it up at the opening. For this I needed to postpone scheduled hotel pick-up by the car rental company. While my agent Kristin was on vacation, another employee (I don't have the name now) received my email, called me and helped to reschedule the pick up - all outside normal business hours.
