The New York Post's front page Thursday featured a photo of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack while using a partial quote by U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar. Some of Omar's Democratic colleagues, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, have defended Omar, who is Somali-American and wears a hijab.

Zeke Miller Associated Press Updated 11:08 p.m. UTC Sep 5, 2018 Washington — An incendiary tell-all book by a reporter who helped bring down President Richard Nixon set off a firestorm in the White House, with its descriptions of current and former aides calling President Donald Trump an “idiot” and a “liar,” disparaging his judgment and claiming they plucked papers off his desk to prevent him from withdrawing from a pair of trade agreements. The book by Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward is the latest to throw the Trump administration into damage-control mode with explosive anecdotes and concerns about the commander in chief. The Associated Press obtained a copy of “Fear: Trump in the White House” on Tuesday, a week before its official release.

By Yasir Ahmad Published: August 6, 2018 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email Everyone needs to know that these underlying factors determine your band score. PHOTO: BRITISH COUNCIL One late evening, a student came down to my office, wanting to join my International English Language Testing System (IELTS) class. This young lady told me how she had given her IELTS for the second time but she knew her performance was not upto the mark and hence, she was not expecting the band score she required; despite paying Rs54000 for the course itself. On the day of the exam, she woke up at 5:30am, and had a healthy breakfast with a mug of coffee to make sure she wouldn’t feel drowsy in front of the speaking examiner. However, I could see a mime of chaos on her face as the young lady told me how she was unable to answer some of the examiner’s questions suitably, which gave her a rough idea that she would once again not grade beyond a 6.5 band. This girl had been practicing … [Read more...] about Unable to get your desired band score in IELTS? Fret not and follow these tips!
