It sounds weird for people who don't attend film festivals to hear that a film received a seven or eight-minute standing ovation, and that's because it is. It's really fucking weird. A standing ovation is a nice gesture, but one has no reason to go beyond, say, 30 seconds. People have places to be! Just see the below…

Pelosi pleads with Trump's family to 'stage intervention' and says she prays for him
Nancy Pelosi has lambasted Donald Trump a day after he stormed out of a bipartisan White House meeting on infrastructure, saying she prays for the president and calling for a family "intervention". The leader of the US House of Representatives addressed the conflict during a Thursday press conference in which she urged the White House administration to confront the president about his "temper tantrum" a day prior. "I pray for the President of the United States," she said, adding, "and the well-being of the United States of America.""I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country," she continued. Her pleas arrived after Mr Trump upended a meeting with Democratic leaders in the White House on Wednesday over congressional investigations into his alleged obstruction of justice. The president refused to sit or shake hands at the meeting, instead telling Ms Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer he would decline to work with them on any issues until all investigations against him were closed. He then held a supposedly impromptu press appearance at the White House Rose Garden and attacked Democrats over increasing calls for impeachment following Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. "So sad that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will never be able to see or understand the great promise of our Country," he tweeted after the appearance, before adding a mislea

Pentagon to present Trump with plans to send 10,000 extra troops to Middle East
The Pentagon expected on Thursday to present the White House with plans to send up to 10,000 extra troops to the Middle East to bolster forces against potential threats from Iran, officials said.The morning meeting between defence chiefs and Trump administration officials comes as tensions continue to simmer with Tehran.Any move to deploy more forces would signal a shift for Donald Trump, who has repeatedly emphasised the need to reduce the US presence in the region. It's unclear whether the White House might approve all or some of the requested forces.Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press the possible surge is not in response to any new threat from Iran.They said troops would be defensive forces and discussions include additional Patriot missile systems, more ships and increased efforts to monitor Iranian activities.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Mr Trump was currently evaluating the forces required in the region "every day". He told Fox News: "We're evaluating the risks, making sure that we have it right."US officials have provided few details about possible Iranian threats but indicated missiles have been taken off the boats near Iran's shore.Sending more troops could also raise questions on Capitol Hill. During closed briefings for the House and Senate on Tuesday, defence leaders told congressional officials the US doesn't want to go to war with Iran and wants to de-escalate the situation.Mr Pompeo and the acting secretary of def

Modi Strengthens Grip on Power, Pulling India Further to Right
If anyone had any doubts about Narendra Modi's popularity, India's masses just put them to rest. A combination of economic populism, Hindu nationalism and air strikes against arch-rival Pakistan earlier this year proved unbeatable.

While the nuclear-armed rivals launched cross-border air strikes at each other barely three months ago, some analysts say the return of Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in a new landslide could help peace prospects. Khan congratulated Modi on the win by the BJP, which has long taken a strong anti-Pakistan stance.
