Ederson has a muscle problem in a thigh and Pep Guardiola does not know if his No 1 will …

Trump administration proposes charging for asylum applications, joining only 3 other countries

(CNN)The Trump administration on Friday proposed a charge on asylum applications — the first time the US government has charged for the form — as well as an 83% fee increase for the naturalization form, according to a proposed rule issued in the Federal Register late in the afternoon. “USCIS is required to examine incoming and outgoing expenditures, just like a business, and make adjustments based on that analysis. This proposed adjustment in fees would ensure more applicants cover the true cost of their applications and minimizes subsidies from an already over-extended system,” said acting USCIS Director Ken Cuccinelli in a statement. Still, the latest move to charge a fee for asylum applications could prove to be yet another challenge …

Dinosaurs Lived On The Other Side Of The Galaxy, NASA Astrophysicist Demonstrates

Cleopatra lived closer in time to the creation of the hit TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race than she did to the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza. Also, Oxford University is older than the Aztecs (Oxford began teaching in 1096, the Aztecs were around from about 1300). Here’s one more example for you to mess with your sense of time, as a NASA scientist has recently pointed out on Twitter: When dinosaurs roamed the Earth, they did so on the other side of the freaking galaxy. As you all know, just as the Earth rotates around the Sun, the Sun (with all the planets in tow) rotates around the center of the galaxy. We’re moving at around 828,000 kilometers (514,500 miles) per hour, at a distance …

There was something not quite right about the two men struggling out of Hereford bus station on a blustery day in November 2015. The dark-haired one was wearing what appeared to be military fatigues; his much older companion seemed confused and barely able to walk. A concerned passerby went to help. The younger man, who seemed to have an American or Canadian accent, explained that he had found the older man face down on a country road and was taking him to Hereford county hospital. She walked with them, doing her best to support the faltering …
