Jeb Bush says President Trump’s evidence-free claims are kneecapping his first 100 days in the White House. “He should stop saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand,” Bush said in an interview that aired Sunday on Miami’s WFOR-TV. During the bruising campaign, Bush was a prominent critic of Trump — who in turn relentlessly mocked the former Florida governor.
The three had forced their way into the house near the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow on Monday when the homeowner's son opened fire with an AR-15 military-style rifle, Deputy Nick Mahoney, spokesman for the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office, said by telephone.

An 18-year-old student meticulously planned a mass shooting at her high school in which she intended to die, authorities in Maryland said Monday. A shotgun, ammunition and bomb-making materials including nails and fireworks were found at Nichole Cevario's home in Thurmont on Thursday, Frederick County Sheriff Charles Jenkins said at a news conference. One of the teen's parents notified Catoctin High School officials Thursday of a potential threat of violence and Cevario was removed from the classroom and turned over to investigators, the Frederick County sheriff's office said in a statement.
Every one of President Donald Trump's weekend trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida has cost taxpayers an estimated $3 million and created what one former Secret Service agent called a "logistical nightmare." But in spite of all the resources the federal government has devoted to making sure the president can visit his properties every weekend, it hasn't kept track of the names of who else is coming and going from Trump properties. Last week, Democrats introduced legislation that would require the Trump administration to create a public database of anyone who visits the White House or "any other location at which the President or the Vice President regularly conducts official business." The bill is not so subtly called the "Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act" — the MAR-A-LAGO Act.
Kutner, now 25, knows firsthand what Thomas is going through. Just like Thomas, she thought it was a storybook romance — and didn't understand that she was a victim. Thomas' teacher, Tad Cummins, is armed with two handguns.
2018 Ford Mustang To that end, we hear Ford is leaning away from EcoBoost and toward a supercharged, larger-displacement version of the Mustang GT’s Coyote. If that sounds a lot like the GT350’s 5.2-liter Voodoo V-8, well, that’s because it would be,
Following a barrage of betas over the past week, Apple rolled out the final version of iOS 10.3 to the public on Monday. After launching iOS 10 last September, Apple was relatively quick to follow up with iOS 10.1 in October and iOS 10.2 in December, but it ended up taking more than three months to finalize iOS 10.3. Along with bringing the frequently discussed Find My AirPods functionality to the Find My iPhone app, iOS 10.3 also changes the animations that occur when opening and closing apps, adds weather forecasts to the Maps app and gives users the option to add a Podcasts widget in the panel where widgets go.
By Tom Westbrook SYDNEY (Reuters) - Thousands of Australians fled their homes on Monday as a powerful cyclone bore down on coastal towns in Queensland, where authorities urged 30,000 people to evacuate low lying areas most at risk from tidal surges and winds of up to 300 km per hour (185 mph). Cyclone Debbie is expected to gather strength before making landfall in the northeast state early on Tuesday, with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a category four storm, just one rung below the most dangerous wind speed level. The growing alarm persuaded the state government on Monday to warn some 25,000 people living in parts of Mackay, a city 950 kilometers (590 miles) north of the state capital Brisbane, to head south to higher ground.
The Philippines military said Monday they have rescued three more Malaysian tugboat crewmen held hostage by Muslim militants for eight months in the south of the country. A brief military report said troops rescued Zulkipli Bin Ali, Mohammad Ridzuan Bin Ismail and Fandy Bin Bakran late Sunday in southern Sulu province. Two other Malaysian crewmen from the same group, who were kidnapped by Abu Sayyaf militants in July off Malaysia's Sabah state near the southern Philippines, were rescued last week when they were abandoned by their captors as a naval patrol closed in.

By Elizabeth Piper LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May will press her case on Monday for a strong union in Scotland, using a visit to staff working on international aid to say "there is no limit to what we can do" when Britain works together. May is battling to keep the United Kingdom together after Britain's vote to leave the European Union revealed deep divisions, with England and Wales voting for Brexit, while Scotland and Northern Ireland supported staying in the bloc. Just days before the British leader launches the formal divorce procedure with the EU, May wants to try to stem demands in Scotland for a new independence referendum by promising to get a Brexit deal that will suit all parts of the country.

Yesterday was the two-year anniversary of President Barack Obama’s most indefensible and harmful foreign-policy decision. On the evening of March 25, 2015, a statement from National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan was posted on the White House’s website: “President Obama has authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to GCC [Gulf Cooperation Council]-led military operations.
The prevailing guess is that water was abundant, and there may have even been enough to form huge oceans. New research into an existing geographical feature on the red planet could provide new evidence of not only the existence of a massive body of water, but also an astroid impact that could have generated multiple devastating tsunamis. In an effort to explain how a tsunami might have been generated, scientists have been looking for the spot (or spots) on the Martian surface where an astroid or other celestial object could have come crashing down.
The earlier you look at how much you will need during retirement, the more time you will have to adjust your current routine. Conventional wisdom is your spending will go down in retirement. For most, spending stays the same or increases, especially at the start of retirement, says Thomas J. O'Connell, president of International Financial Advisory Group in Parsippany, New Jersey.
A 6,800-ton South Korean ferry was hoisted to the surface last week nearly three years after it capsized and sank in violent seas off the country's southwestern coast, an emotional moment for the nation as it searches for closure to one of its deadliest disasters. In other images from the Asia-Pacific region last week, about 50 farmers and activists opposed to a cement factory in Indonesia's Central Java province encased their feet in concrete during a dayslong protest in Jakarta, the capital. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte met with Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, completing a series of get-acquainted visits with the members of the 10-country Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which the Philippines is chairing this year.
Bone fragments recovered from the wreck of South Korea's Sewol ferry are from an animal and not human remains, the maritime ministry said Tuesday, dashing hopes of the relatives of missing victims.

By Aleksandar Vasovic and Ivana Sekularac BELGRADE (Reuters) - Serbia is committed to European Union membership but it will work hard to improve relations with its traditional ally Russia, Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic told Reuters ahead of a presidential election on Sunday.

Leading South African anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Kathrada, one of Nelson Mandela's closest colleagues in the long struggle against white rule, died early Tuesday aged 87, his eponymous charity foundation said. Kathrada was among those tried and jailed alongside Mandela in the Rivonia trial in 1964, which drew worldwide attention and highlighted the brutal legal system under the apartheid regime. Kathrada spent 26 years and three months in prison, 18 of which were on Robben Island.
President Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border has been criticized by some and lauded by others, but everyone knew it was going to be expensive. Exactly how expensive, though, was partially revealed Monday when a report showed the Trump administration wants $1 billion in funds to cover 62 miles of the border. The White House asked for $999 million to build 48 miles of the new wall, in addition to replacing about 14 miles of the already existing border fence, according to CNN, which cited documents obtained from the Department of Homeland Security.
