President Trump signed his first executive order in his redecorated Oval Office late Friday, targeting Obamacare, as his administration ordered an immediate freeze on new regulations just hours after his inauguration. Seated behind the iconic Resolute Desk, made from the timbers of a British exploration ship in the late 19th century, Trump also signed the commissions for his first two Cabinet nominees to win Senate confirmation: Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. Trump was surrounded by senior aides and advisers, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, Hope Hicks, National Security Adviser Mike Flynn, Stephen Miller and Marc Short.
Hillary Clinton will make history on Friday, but probably not the kind she wanted. Here in this tiny town in remote northwestern Kansas, she will be the first woman inducted into a museum that most Americans have never heard of, except for the people who live here and those eccentric few who travel the back roads of the country in search of extremely odd things. About a half-hour before Donald Trump takes the oath of office to become the nation’s 45th president, Clinton, his vanquished opponent, will have her picture unveiled at the They Also Ran Gallery — or as many people refer to it, the Museum of Presidential Losers.

Looking to lessen its reliance on Google and further differentiate itself among a crowded field of Android handsets, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone will feature a brand new intelligent personal assistant, similar in nature to Siri on the iPhone. Dubbed Bixby, Samsung’s AI assistant will be based on technology the company picked up when it acquired Viv this past October. What makes the forthcoming release of Bixby so intriguing is that Viv’s AI software was designed to answer layered questions that competing AI services are either unable to answer or struggle to process.

Nearly two months since the November 2016 kidnapping of Northern California mother Sherri Papini, police are yet to solve the case but are currently looking at a few clues. According to a new report, the delay in the investigation was caused as police were unable to pay attention to the case amid other high-profile crimes. The New York Post, which cited the local paper redding.com, stated that the Shasta County Sheriff’s Department is working on bigger-than-usual level of cases — including murders and a fatal shooting by a police officer — which have drawn their attention away from the Papini case. Papini disappeared on Nov. 2 while out jogging near her home in Redding, California.

Four cemeteries, from which at least 123 individuals have been excavated so far, have been unearthed near the remains of a medieval Christian monastery in Sudan. The cemeteries and remains, which have been excavated over the past two years, are located at a monastery called al-Ghazali near the Nile River. The people who were buried there lived about 1,000 years ago, during a time when a series of Christian kingdoms flourished in the area, according to Robert Stark, a doctoral student at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, who presented the findings this month in Toronto at the joint annual meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America and the Society for Classical Studies.

Nigeria's air force said it has set up a board of inquiry which will report its findings before February 2, but military commanders have already called the bombing a mistake.
