Trump?s chaotic first 100 days ? as seen through his tweets
After winning the election, Donald Trump said he wasn't sure how much he'd use Twitter as president. ?I?m going to be very restrained, if I use it at all,? he said on ?60 Minutes.? As he approaches his first 100, that vow appears to have fallen short.

Korean Businesses Targeted During LA Riots
In archival NBC News footage, Diana Koricke reports on Koreans targeted during the 1992 riots, in part because of the light sentencing a South Korean store owner received after fatally shooting a teenaged black girl.
Russia's Putin, Japan's Abe call for talks, calm with North Korea
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday called on North Korea and other countries to avoid behaviour or rhetoric that could increase tensions around Pyongyang's nuclear programme. Speaking at a news conference in Moscow after holding talks, Putin and Abe said they had agreed to cooperate closely to try to help defuse tensions around the secretive Asian state and that both wanted to see a resumption of six-party international talks with North Korea. "In my opinion, and in the opinion of the prime minister, the situation on the Korean peninsula has unfortunately got a lot worse," said Putin.

French tourist attacked by shark in New Zealand
A French tourist survived a rare shark attack in New Zealand on Thursday, suffering only moderate injuries, rescuers and locals said. The woman, aged in her 20s, was bodyboarding in the afternoon at Curio Bay in the South Island when the shark attacked her leg, St John Ambulance said. Nick Smart, who runs the Caitlin Surf School, said the woman was in the water with friends when the shark attacked "out of nowhere".
NASA?s Cassini survived its first Saturn dive, and delivered some mind-blowing photos
NASA delivered some fantastic news very early this morning, announcing that the Cassini spacecraft had successfully survived the first of its "Grand Finale" dives. The craft was out of radio contact for many hours as it ventured closer to the surface of Saturn than any earthly equipment had ever gone, and it shot some really stunning photos that show the planet in greater detail than we've ever seen. Cassini's first dive sent it straight through Saturn's rings, shooting for a gap that measures roughly 1,500 miles wide which is light on debris. The craft cruised through its targeted space at speeds around 77,000 miles per hour, relative to the surface of the planet, and NASA notes that even the smallest particles could have spelled utter doom for the hardware if it was hit in the wrong spot. "In the grandest tradition of exploration, NASA's Cassini spacecraft has once again blazed a trail, showing us new wonders and demonstrating where our curiosity can take us if we dare," Jim Green, director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said in a statement. The images Cassini delivered are the best photos humanity has ever had of Saturn's atmosphere, showing in detail the unique cloud formations that simply hadn't been seen previously. The photos were shot at a distance of about 1,900 miles from the planet, which might sound big, but is actually quite close when compared to most of Cassini's other photos. Cassini's next dive will take place on May 2nd, and it will be the second of 22 total dives. So buckle up, because there's lots more awesome eye candy in store.

We asked Trump voters what they think about his first 100 days ? and if they have any regrets
Like the majority of people who sent Donald Trump to the White House, Lorraine Ostrowski has no regrets. While Mr Trump?s national approval rating is lower than that of any modern president, a recent Washington Post-ABC News survey found that among those who voted for him, just 2 per cent said they had made a mistake. Indeed, despite controversies ranging from Mr Trump?s Muslim travel ban, his campaign?s alleged links to Russia and the apparently often chaotic nature of his administration, when The Independent visited Macomb County, it found not a single Trump voter who wished for a do-over.
