President Trump on Friday praised far-right French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen as “the strongest” candidate on immigration and terrorism, in an unusually clear political signal two days before a first round of voting. Trump also predicted that that a deadly shooting Thursday night on the famed Champs-Élysées avenue in Paris would “probably help” her prospects. Trump, who made those comments in an interview with the Associated Press, denied that he was delivering an endorsement of Le Pen.

American and Canadian fighter planes scrambled to intercept two Russian TU-95 “Bear” bombers Thursday night, marking the fourth consecutive night of Russian probes near the Alaskan coast, U.S. defense officials said Friday. At no point did the Russian aircraft cross into American or Canadian airspace, but the incursions into the Air Identification Zones — which extend beyond the territorial waters of the U.S. and Canada — represent a sharp increase in activity in the area, which has seen no Russian activity at all since 2015. Over the past several years, Moscow has played a high-speed game of cat-and-mouse with U.S. and NATO aircraft and naval vessels in the Baltic and Black Seas regions, but this level of activity hasn’t been seen near Alaska since 2014, one defense official told FP.

Holocaust denial just got a little harder. The Wiener Library for the Study of Holocaust & Genocide is making the United Nations' files on World War II war crimes more accessible by allowing the general public to search an online catalog of the documents for the first time beginning Friday.

The steady drip of jihadist attacks in Europe, including the slaying of a policeman on Paris's world-famous Champs Elysees Thursday, might give the impression the Islamic State group is thriving -- but experts say that's wrong. Under the pressure of the international coalition in Iraq and Syria as well as improved efforts by intelligence services, IS has seen its ability to mount complex, group attacks weaken. While a large-scale strike remains a possibility, "the deadly tenacity of Daesh (IS) against France poorly masks a continuing degradation of its ability to strike our nation," Jean-Pierre Filiu, a researcher at Paris's Sciences Po university, wrote on his blog Friday.

President Trump listens as Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni speaks during a news conference on Thursday. President Trump complained Friday about the “ridiculous standard” of judging an administration’s ability to govern based on its first 100 days — a checkpoint he will reach a week from Saturday. As his 100th day in office fast approaches, Trump has signed executive orders at a frenetic pace but does not have a major legislative accomplishment — despite having a Republican-controlled Congress.
After one too many incidents involving belligerent customers -- who also happened to be members of parliament -- Air India announced that unruly passengers who cause a flight delay of up to one hour will be slapped with a hefty $7,750 (5 lakh in rupees) fine. Last month, a member of parliament was charged with assaulting a 60-year-old airline staffer with his slippers during an altercation that delayed an Air India flight.
Climate change is not an abstract debate for the villagers of Kivalina, an island off of Alaska’s northwest coast — it’s a matter of survival. As Yahoo News reported previously, the indigenous whaling community’s remote home island vanishes into the surrounding Chukchi Sea little by little each year, as Arctic sea ice melts due to global warming.
Wrong! There’s an art to making a perfect grilled cheese sandwich. Obviously, a skillet is your go-to pan when making a grilled cheese sandwich. A nonstick skillet or well-seasoned cast iron skillet is the best pan to use because it will brown the bread nicely, and allow you to flip the sandwich with ease.

The center-right opposition accuses the leftist government of repressing protests and sending armed thugs to attack them.
While the Obama administration prosecuted more leakers of classified information than all previous administrations combined, there was one target they could never quite figure out how to go after without getting ensnared in the First Amendment rights of journalists. From his perch at the Ecuadorean Embassy, the journalist-cum-transparency activist Julian Assange could expose the U.S. government’s mostly closely held secrets — and American prosecutors could do nothing about it. According to the Washington Post, the U.S. Justice Department is planning to charge Assange.

By Stephen Nellis SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - When Gokul Gunasekaran was offered a full scholarship for a graduate program in electrical engineering at Stanford University, he saw it as the chance of a lifetime. In the meantime, he is in a holding pattern on an H1-B visa, which permits him to live and work in the United States but does not allow him easily to switch jobs or start his own company. "It was a no-brainer when I came to this country, but now I'm kind of regretting taking that scholarship," said Gunasekaran, 29, who is also vice president with a non-profit group called Immigration Voice that represents immigrants waiting for green cards.
A former Weather Underground radical who drove a getaway car in a bungled 1981 Brinks armored-car robbery that left three people dead was denied parole on Friday despite the fact Gov. Andrew Cuomo praised her behavior as a prisoner when he commuted her sentence last year. Judith Clark has served 35 years of a 75-years-to-life sentence for the suburban New York heist, which led to the deaths of two police officers and a security guard. Cuomo, a Democrat, commuted Clark's sentence in December to make her eligible for parole, saying she had become a repentant, "impressive" and community-spirited prisoner.
A toddler is lucky to be alive after being brutally attacked by a dog as he played outside in his upstate New York neighborhood Thursday evening, community advocates told InsideEdition.com. Surveillance footage of the terrifying ordeal posted to social media appears to show a group of young children playing outside a Spring Valley home when suddenly, a black dog charges at the group from across the street, grabbing a hold of a little boy and dragging him along the pavement. The dog, which had been identified as a pit bull, appears to lose its grip on the child at one point, jumping on him again before it’s dragged away by a man, according to the video posted by the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council [OJPAC].
Scott Van Zyl made his living taking wealthy clients on “safaris” for the sole purpose of bringing home trophies like leopards, zebras, wildebeests and even lions. Now, investigators in Zimbabwe believe that Van Zyl ended up on the wrong end of the predator-prey relationship, and DNA tests have confirmed that he was attacked, killed, and eaten by crocodiles while on a hunting trip. Van Zyl, who ran SS Pro Safaris, offered specials for hunters to spend a week or more on his hunting lands which border nature preserves, with the promise of killing up to seven different species for $9,000.
