US Supreme Court takes narrow view on tribal immunity
The US Supreme Court took a narrow view Tuesday on the immunity from lawsuits enjoyed by Native American tribes, which are treated in some respects like sovereign states that cannot be sued in American courts. In a case involving a limousine driver who rear-ended a car on a Connecticut freeway, the highest court in the land ruled unanimously that tribal employees do not always have immunity when involved in incidents that take place far from reservations. The justices revived a civil lawsuit filed by the injured occupants of the car in state court, overturning the Connecticut Supreme Court's decision to dismiss the case because the driver worked for the Mohegan Tribe, which runs a casino in the state.

By Michael Martina BEIJING (Reuters) - China launched its first domestically built aircraft carrier on Wednesday amid rising tension over North Korea and worries about Beijing's assertiveness in the South China Sea. State media has quoted military experts as saying the carrier, China's second and built in the northeastern port of Dalian, is not expected to enter service until 2020, once it has been kitted out and armed. Foreign military analysts and Chinese media have for months published satellite images, photographs and news stories about the second carrier's development.
Please enjoy Obama photographer Pete Souza's latest flawless Trump troll
Trump's first 100 days in office have come and gone, and they're not getting great reviews. So, naturally, Pete Souza has some throwback photos to post. President Obama's official White House photographer, well-known for his timely bouts of Instagram shade, has been sharing shots from Obama's first 100 days ? which seem a little, uh, busier. And, less situated in Florida. And, are those a bunch of photos of him interacting civilly with Republican leaders?

This picture also brings back the memory that because of the economic crisis, potus thought that it would be improper to redecorate the Oval Office even though Congress had appropriated the funds. Instead, he kept the Bush 43 carpeting, drapes and furniture until mid 2010. A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on Apr 23, 2017 at 12:21pm PDT First 100 days. 1/21/2009. 7:30PM. Chief Justice John Roberts administers the oath of office. Wait, you say. Wasn't the inauguration the day before? It was but the Chief Justice had made a slight error in the wording of the oath. So the White House counsel decided, for an abundance of caution, to ask Roberts to do it again at the White House the next day. Although it has sometimes incorrectly been reported that there was no press present for this, a small press pool (including Time photographer Callie Shell) did witness the second swearing-in in the Map Room. POTUS even joked to the pool afterwards, "The bad news for the pool is there?s 12 more balls.? A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on Apr 23, 2017 at 4:41pm PDT First 100 days.

Syria accuses Israel of strike near Damascus airport
Syria accused Israel of firing several missiles Thursday at a military position near Damascus airport, triggering a huge explosion and prompting a call from regime ally Russia for restraint. Israel has carried out multiple air strikes in Syria since the country's civil war erupted in 2011, most of which it has said targeted arms convoys or warehouses of its Lebanese arch-foe Hezbollah, which is a key supporter of the Syrian regime. In line with its usual practice, Israel's military declined to comment on the latest blast.
