Trump praises AOC about VA healthcare ? before completely contradicting herDonald Trump has praised Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter over comments she made last week about the Department of Veterans Affairs ? while simultaneously undermining her stance on the issue of privatising health care for US veterans. The president claimed the agency ?is doing great? thanks to his administration in a tweet, seemingly undermining the fundamental point the 29-year-old lawmaker was making during a town hall event in New York. Mr Trump supported at least a portion of the congresswoman?s statements surrounding veterans? health care in America, writing Wednesday, ?Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is correct, the VA is not broken, it is doing great. But that is only because of the Trump administration.? Ms Ocasio-Cortez was speaking out against efforts by the Republican Party to privatise the VA ? the second largest federal department following Defence ? when she said at a town hall event in New York, ?When it comes to the VA, all I can think of is that classic refrain that my parents always told me growing up, which is that, ?if it ain?t broke, don?t fix it.?? ?That is their opening approach that we have seen when it comes to privatisation,? she continued. ?the idea that this thing that isn?t broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimised, tinkered with, until ? until we don?t even recognise it anymore.?More follows...

NASA?s InSight lander may have just captured a ?Marsquake? for the first time

NASA?s InSight lander may have just captured a ?Marsquake? for the first timeNASA's Mars rovers have provided breathtaking images from the surface of Mars for many years, but listening to Mars is a whole other story. The InSight lander, which touched down on Mars in late 2018, is designed to listen closely to the inner workings of the planet, and it may have just nailed a huge milestone.In a new blog post, NASA reveals what appears to be a recording of audio from the first Marsquake observed by the lander. It's a small step in a long road ahead for InSight, but it's an exciting development in a mission that has seen more than its fair share of trouble.You'll remember that back in March, NASA was faced with a huge hurdle to overcome when the InSight's drilling tool failed to drill deep enough into the Martian surface. The instrument came up well short of the intended depth to be drilled, but the robot has additional observational tools at its disposal as well.In the video below you'll hear the high-pitched whine of, well, something going on near the InSight. Scientists believe it to be evidence of the first Marsquake observed by mankind, but they're still digging into the data in order to confirm that notion.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLBP-5KoSCc"InSight's first readings carry on the science that began with NASA's Apollo missions," InSight Principal Investigator Bruce Banerdt said in a statement. "We've been collecting background noise up until now, but this first event officially kicks off a new field: Martian seismology!"The rumblings were detected by the InSight lander's SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure) instrument, which the robot placed on the planet's surface last year. InSight is currently less than six months into its two-year primary mission, so we can expect to see many additional discoveries in the coming months.

The summit will be the first between Putin and the North Korean leader and the nuclear row, and how to resolve it, would be the main item on the agenda, Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters. "In the last few months the situation around the peninsula has stabilized somewhat, thanks in large part to North Korea's initiatives of stopping rocket testing and closing its nuclear test site," Ushakov said.

The Game is Changing. What Will Be Expected of You?

“When we were doing our studies for the National Academies, the typical first response of university presidents or CFOs or provosts was to say: ‘I understand things are changing very rapidly, but I'll ask my CIO to take care of it. The CIO usually can.’ We would then ask: ‘Suppose you wake up in the morning and come in to your office and nothing works anymore. You can't access e-mail. All of your course systems have collapsed. Who fixes the problem?’ They begin to scratch their heads, and pretty soon it's like the five phases of grief. They start off with denial and anger, move through bargaining and depression, and finally reach acceptance.” — James J. Duderstadt, Change and the Research University
