Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave remarks after visiting Israel’s Holocaust memorial with President Trump on May 23.
Under Trump there have been an increase in attacks on al-Qaeda in Yemen.
The two have clashed on issues ranging from global warming to migration, but during a symbolic first meeting they’ll be on their best behavior
One man wakes up before dawn each day for hours of prayer and meditation, eschews television and vacations, and has decried the morally bankrupting temptations of wealth, vanity and pride.
The other begins each morning feasting on morning cable news shows, has played golf more than 21 times and visited his luxury Florida resort seven times since becoming the US president, and delights in publicly eviscerating his enemies.
Office rejects Trump budget director’s claim it lacks authority to demand information on former lobbyists granted waivers to work in administration
Donald Trump’s administration says the government ethics office lacks the authority to force the president to reveal how many waivers he’s granted to ex-lobbyists in his new administration.
The San Antonio coach has led the team to five NBA championships but taking a team depleted by injuries and a retirement to the Conference finals was something else
The San Antonio Spurs’ season is over eight wins short of the franchise’s sixth championship, swept by the Golden State Warriors and outscored by 84 points over the final three and one half games of the Western Conference Finals. So concludes the finest coaching performance in Gregg Popovich’s 21 seasons leading the Spurs.
San Antonio’s line-up for their Game 4 defeat showed how little Popovich had to work with at the end. Patty Mills, Danny Green, Jonathon Simmons, what’s left of LaMarcus Aldridge and then Manu Ginobili getting an honorary start for what may have been his final game in a remarkable NBA career. On the sidelines was MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard, out with an ankle injury since late in the first half of Game 1 when Golden State’s Zaza Pachulia accidentally undercut him (or committed basketball “manslaughter”, depending on your point of view).
Trump’s budget would slash safety net programs by $1 trillion over 10 years
In the West Bank, Trump is again reminded of the Palestinians demands over Jerusalem.
Consumers are reluctant to spend because of new technologies that could eventually replace many or most of their jobs
Since the “Great Recession” of 2007-09, the world’s major central banks have kept short-term interest rates at near-zero levels. In the United States, even after the Federal Reserve’s recent increases, short-term rates remain below 1%, and long-term interest rates on major government bonds are similarly low. Moreover, major central banks have supported markets at a record level by buying up huge amounts of debt and holding it.
Why is all this economic life support necessary, and why for so long?
Vienna meeting almost certain to prolong curbs but analysts say tougher reductions in output are unlikely
The world’s major oil countries will almost certainly extend production cuts by a further nine months at a crunch meeting this week, though they are thought highly unlikely to toughen the curbs.
A landmark deal by Opec and non-Opec members, including Russia, to reduce output by 1.8m barrels a day and shore up the oil price, is due to expire at the end of June.
Former MotoGP champion considered one of the great motorcycle racers of the modern era
Nicky Hayden, who has died following a cycling accident aged 35, was one of the greatest motorcycle racers of the modern era. He came from humble beginnings in Owensboro, Kentucky, to win the 2006 MotoGP world championship, defeating the reigning champion Valentino Rossi in an unforgettable final-race showdown.
Like most riders from the US, Hayden started out in dirt track, wrestling bikes around loosely surfaced oval circuits and learning the art of throttle control. It is no coincidence that many European racers, including Rossi and the reigning MotoGP champion Marc Márquez, now include this discipline in their training regimes.
