To pass, the motion requires a simple majority of the 400 seats in the national assembly where the ANC holds a 62% majority.

    However, according to the latest information cited by The Investor , it looks like the Note 8 is going to be marginally larger than the Galaxy S8+, standing in at 6.32 inches. These are actually the first cases that Mujjo has released for anything other than the iPhone, so that has to be a bit of a hat-tip in the Galaxy S8's favour - not that it needs it.

There's also keyboard and mouse control, if you're some sort of blaspheming heathen when it comes to controlling action games on the PC. Voice overs and subtitles are also available in both Japanese and English, so you can choose whichever suits your preference.

    The Moto C will be another budget offering from Motorola. The listing shows that both the phones will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat. We are yet to hear from Lenovo about an official unveiling or market release dates. However, the previous appearance on FCC brought forward an unexpected Moto E4 Plus that is set to feature a monstrous 5000mAh battery unit. We see that this Moto E4 would carry a MediaTek MT6737 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, with a 5-inch screen and ...

    Dillon's performance not only inspired the writers to give Dillon more to do, but also impressed everyone on set. They're not changing any rules or creating new rule, just explaining how the current decree works. This was not wholly satisfying for Dillon , who said they cried when they first read the Billions script, as "Taylor really inspired me to feel finally like: 'Yeah, this is who I am and I don't feel any shame or need to hide it'".
