Jeb Bush: Trump is ?a distraction in and of himself?
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 least of these?: Meals on Wheels, the Trump budget and the struggle over Matthew 25:40
The sainted Mother Teresa herself was fond of quoting the verse to explain why she devoted her life to serving the poor. Matthew 25:40, it turns out, is a famously difficult and controversial passage, the subject of at least one book, numerous articles and contentious disagreements among biblical scholars.

Pakistan says starts fencing Afghanistan border in 'high-threat zones'
Pakistan has begun building a fence on its disputed 2,500 km (1,500 mile) border with Afghanistan to prevent incursions by militants, Pakistan's army chief said, in a move likely to further strain relations between the two countries. Pakistan has blamed Pakistani Taliban militants it says are based on Afghan soil for a spate of attacks at home in recent months, urging Kabul to eradicate "sanctuaries" for militants. Citing the attacks, Islamabad earlier this month temporarily shut the main crossing points along the colonial-era Durand Line border, drawn up in 1893 and rejected by Afghanistan.

Did an astroid strike a Martian ocean and create a cataclysmic tsunami?
There's no shortage of theories about what Mars was like billions of years ago. 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.
Evidence that water existed on Mars is ample, and many researchers believe that telltale signs of tsunamis are also present. 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.
One particularly interesting spot on the planet, which NASA describes as "thumbprint-looking," was long thought to be the result of mud or other debris sliding downward after being pushed up by a glacier or other geographical shift. It's called the Lomonosov crater, and new research supports a very different theory as to how it got there.
Instead of being simply the result of gravity pulling dirt downhill, scientists now believe it could very well be the last remaining mark of an astroid that violently struck Mars billions of years ago. What's more, the characteristics of the crater support the idea that when the rock struck the planet, the spot it hit was actually an ocean, leading to multiple huge tidal waves as the displaced water was pushed from and pulled into resulting crater.

Kagame hails Rwanda-Israel bond at Washington forum
Rwanda's President Paul Kagame became the first African leader to address Washington's biggest pro-Israel forum Sunday, hailing the Jewish state as an inspiration for his own country's rebirth after genocide. Kagame was commander of the rebel force that put an end to the 1994 slaughter of Rwandan Tutsis by Hutu extremists and has led the country since 2000, as it recovers from the conflict and becomes a regional economic success story. In Washington to attend the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), he hailed the success of the state of Israel after the horrors of the Holocaust and pledged Rwanda's friendship.
