WASHINGTON — Sarah Huckabee Sanders does not want you to read this story. When Yahoo News asked the White House’s principal deputy press secretary if she was willing to be interviewed for an article about her life and increasingly high-profile role in the administration of President Trump, she declined and said she’d prefer it wasn’t written at all. Any profile should be on him,” Sanders said.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., took issue with President Trump’s loquaciousness and encouraged him to think about his choice of words more carefully before speaking. During an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday morning, Feinstein said it was altogether inappropriate for Trump to describe former FBI Director James Comey as a “nut job” while meeting with Russian officials. Former Director Comey is in no way a nut job.

Two photographers have crisscrossed North America to escape the light pollution of occupied areas and capture the original beauty of the night sky. Gavin Heffernan and Harun Mehmedinović traveled more than 150,000 miles to a staggering 500 locations across North America in order to capture these images, which feature millions of stars, far-off galaxies and areas of extreme darkness that offer an almost primeval contrast to glowing cities. Heffernan, 37, said the aim of the series, called Skyglow, was to show off the incredible vastness of the night sky, in the hope of inspiring people to care about dark skies.

Dr. Roland Yearwood was nearing the peak of Mount Everest when he died Sunday in the so-called "death zone" where air becomes perilously thin. The first time, Yearwood managed to skirt tragedy when he lived through an avalanche that killed 18 there in 2015. It is not clear if Yearwood fulfilled his dream of reaching the Everest summit before he died.

Beijing systematically dismantled CIA spying efforts in China beginning in 2010, killing or jailing more than a dozen covert sources, in a deep setback to US intelligence there, The New York Times reported Sunday. The Times, quoting 10 current and former American officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, described the intelligence breach as one of the worst in decades. It said that even now intelligence officials are unsure whether the US was betrayed by a mole within the CIA or whether the Chinese hacked a covert system used by the CIA to communicate with foreign sources.
Egyptian authorities say they caught looters digging up an ancient stone block carved with an image of a pharaoh. In the city of Abydos, antiquities authorities say they were inspecting an old two-story, mud-brick house when they found that the owner had excavated a hole in the floor.

Each morning, Joanna Smith's 7-year-old son pulls on a T-shirt and shorts, boasts how fast he can tie his sneakers and heads to school. Legislation headed for passage in the Texas Legislature this month could forbid him from using the boys' bathroom and effectively divulge his transgender identity to classmates. "He would be very embarrassed and ashamed to be outed," said Smith, who plans to pull her child out of school if the measure is adopted.
This article originally appeared on the Motley Fool. More and more often, American defense contractors are finding some of their biggest defense markets lie halfway around the world, in the Middle East. The UAE, you see -- already a big fan of the Patriot air defense system manufactured by Raytheon (NYSE:RTN) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) -- is making a $2 billion investment to upgrade its arsenal.
Frankly, after driving the car with the 316 horsepower twin-charged powertrain (T6), I don't see a flaw in their plan. Volvo was careful not to use the word "smaller" in any case, but frankly, the XC60 is a five-seater, not a luxury people hauler for seven. Design chief Thomas Ingenlath told me the 60 series (which Volvo internally calls the "60 cluster") are more about the sculpture and the muscle fully modeled out of the available volume, with a look that still feels natural.
By Bozorgmehr Sharafedin LONDON (Reuters) - Iranian hardliners indignant at President Hassan Rouhani's re-election vowed on Sunday to press their conservative agenda, with some saying his caustic campaign trail attacks on their candidate would bring a backlash. Rouhani won decisively with 57 percent of the vote on Friday, with promises of more engagement with the outside world, more economic opportunities for Iran’s youth, as well as social justice, individual freedoms and political tolerance. The president, known for decades as a conciliatory figure, remade himself on the campaign trail as a reformist political street fighter, accusing hardliners of brutality and corruption in language that frequently strained at the boundaries of what is permitted in Iran.
As a little girl sat by the edge of a dock in Steveston, Canada, Saturday, a sea lion suddenly snatched her and dragged her into the water.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte flew to Russia on Monday to meet his hero, seek arms and steer his nation's foreign policy further away from longtime ally the United States. The five-day trip will cement a dramatic improvement in relations with Russia since Duterte came to power last year and began unravelling his country's decades-long alliances with the United States, which he accuses of hypocrisy and bullying. "Russia must cease to be at the margins of Philippine diplomacy.

North Korea successfully tested an intermediate-range ballistic missile Sunday, the reclusive country said Monday in a statement, also indicating advances in its ambitions to attack the United States. The details about the missile comes amid concerns that Pyongyang could target South Korea and U.S. amid growing tensions surrounding the reclusive nation's nuclear advancements. Just a day before the missile launch, North Korea said it had developed the capability to strike the U.S. mainland, although Western missile experts say the claim is exaggerated.
Even for non-aficionados, Shelby revealing a new wide-body Super Snake version of the current Mustang probably wouldn't come as too much of a surprise. After all, Shelby is wholly synonymous with the legendary Mustang. However, that model is merely a
A senior Hezbollah official recently blacklisted by Washington and Riyadh called the U.S. administration "mentally impeded and crazy" on Sunday as President Donald Trump visited Saudi Arabia, in the group's latest verbal attack on the United States. Sayyed Hashem Safieddine, president of the Iran-backed Shi'ite group's executive council, said Washington would not be able to do any real harm to Hezbollah. "America's contempt and blockading that targets our region, countries and communities are proof that it is much weaker than it was in past decades, especially since Trump continues to lead," he said, according to a statement.
