The mother of an unarmed black teenager fatally shot by a white police officer as he fled a traffic stop has expressed her anger and devastation over a jury's decision to acquit the officer. Former East Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld was charged with homicide for shooting Antwon Rose II last June in one of the many high-profile killings of black people by white police officers. The deadly confrontation, captured on video, led to weeks of unrest and angry protests in the Pittsburgh last year, including a late-night march that shut down a major motorway.
Poppy fever has returned to Lake Elsinore, California. After tens of thousands descended on the town last weekend and caused major traffic headaches, city officials and law enforcement responded with a plan to require all weekend Walker Canyon visitors to ride a $10 shuttle from the Nichols Road exit. Hundreds gathered inside a vacant store to wait for the shuttles, which started ferrying super bloom fanatics at 6:30 a.m. The parking lot was already starting to fill up around 8:15 a.m. as drivers searched for empty spaces.
For the last several months, U.S. special representative Zalmay Khalilzad has been deeply involved in a negotiation with the Taliban—an effort that may or may not lead to a comprehensive political resolution of the seventeen-year-long Afghan conflict. For the sake of peace in Afghanistan, we should all hope that Khalilzad—a man of eminent experience who has worked on the Afghan portfolio for decades—can pull a rabbit out of his hat and close the book on this latest bloody chapter in Afghanistan's history.
Teams from the three U.S. airlines that own 737 MAX jets headed to Boeing Co's factory in Renton, Washington, to review a software upgrade on Saturday, as U.S. regulators prepared to receive and review the fixes in coming weeks.

This month, a second deadly crash involving an Ethiopian Airlines MAX in Addis Ababa triggered the fleet's worldwide grounding.
Nintendo is reportedly planning to release two new models of the Switch this year, as the Japanese gaming giant looks to continue the early success of its home-and-handheld hybrid console. According to the Wall Street Journal, the first new model will be an 'enhanced' version of the console 'targeted at avid video gamers'; while the second will be a budget version of the console that removes certain features to offer a cheaper alternative. Unsurprisingly, the premium Switch model is reportedly not as powerful as Sony's PlayStation 4 or Microsoft's Xbox One consoles, but will likely offer improved features to expand the console's existing popularity with 'hardcore' gamers.
In more typical tax years, most taxpayers must pay at least 90 percent of their federal taxes for a given year, or 100 percent of what they owed the year before, in order to avoid an underpayment penalty.

That was Trump's only comment as he returned to the White House on Sunday, hours after the Justice Department declared that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation found no evidence that Trump's campaign "conspired or coordinated" with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. Mueller also investigated whether Trump sought to obstruct the investigation, but did not provide a definitive answer. Back at the White House, Trump said only: "I just want to tell you that, America is the greatest place on earth, the greatest place on earth."

Prime Minister Theresa May outlined her Brexit survival strategy to her disgruntled ministers Monday as Britain entered the week it was meant to leave the European Union with its government in crisis. Britain is still no closer to figuring out how it intends to split off from the other 27 EU nations than it was when voters narrowly backed Brexit in a divisive 2016 national poll. All the options are back on the table after May's deal twice failed to win parliamentary support by resounding margins.

Africa's biggest carrier will work with Boeing and other airlines to make air travel safer, its chief executive, Tewolde Gebremariam, said, after regulators this month grounded the worldwide fleet of the aircraft following the crash that killed 157 people. "Despite the tragedy, Boeing and Ethiopian Airlines will continue to be linked well into the future," Tewolde said in a statement on Monday.

The military-scripted charter limits the number of seats large parties -- like Pheu Thai, linked to the political machine of exiled ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra -- can win. It is designed to keep "Thaksin-aligned parties from emerging with a large number of MPs", said analyst Thitinan Pongsudhirak of Chulalongkorn University. Thai Raksa Chart, a Pheu Thai offshoot created to scoop up more votes, was dissolved following its ill-fated bid to have Princess Ubolratana run as its prime ministerial candidate.
