    To mark the elections in the Netherlands (let's hope for the best), here is a study in contrasts:

    Nice to see it confirmed - no American media, Dutch people aren't angry and aren't voting for this asshole en masse.

    Also nice to see: the youngest group among the voters (18-24) clearly prefer the progressive parties (24% of them voted for the green party and 23% for the liberal left-wing party)

    I hope we'll get a similar result in Belgium when it comes to the progressive parties.

    U.S. District Court Judge Derrick K. Watson has issued a nationwide temporary restraining order, preventing President Trump's revised travel ban from taking effect at midnight Wednesday. Trump's executive order would have temporarily halted the U.S. refugee program and travel from six Muslim-majority countries.

    Department of Justice attorneys argued that the ban was necessary to protect the nation's security and that it had been revised to address legal concerns. State attorneys general and immigrant rights activists argued the travel ban amounted to an unconstitutional Muslim ban.

    The federal court in Hawaii was one of three courts to hear challenges to the travel ban Wednesday.

    Yesss !!!

    But seriously, this stop-and-go game is annoying and already affecting a lot of people's lives. I deactivated my Facebook account a while ago for various reasons, one of them being the overload of Trump-related posts, but before that, well, I had made a lot of acquaintances with people from those and other countries who study or work in the US back when I was there, and on Facebook I saw that all their family lives are pretty messed up cause this administration is unpredictable - no one dares to leave the country to see their familes at home because they could get stuck there and not be allowed to return, families in turn don't dare to book expensive flights because it is unclear if they will be let in at the border and students don't apply for visas in the first place because they may get cancelled, trying for Canada or other countries instead. The US is very good in science and academia but in the long run this ridiculous game is going to harm this and other fields that rely heavily on international exchange.
    I hope it will get settled once and for all soon, but somehow I know Trump and his people will not stop trying.

    i know what you mean. in a way, this is great because it lets us see that our system does work - or at least can work sometimes :p but i can only imagine how frustrating/scary it must be for the people who are most directly impacted :(
