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.

Pakistan building border fence with Afghanistan: officials

Pakistan building border fence with Afghanistan: officialsPakistan has begun building a fence along its border with Afghanistan to curtail the movement of militants, its army said, in a move criticised by its eastern neighbour for dividing communities. The two nations are divided by the "Durand Line", a 2,400-kilometre (1,500-mile) frontier drawn by the British in 1896 and disputed by Kabul, which does not officially recognise it as an international border. Last year, Pakistan completed an 1,100 kilometre (700 mile) trench along the southern half of the border.

Northeast Australia braces for cyclone, thousands flee to higher ground

Northeast Australia braces for cyclone, thousands flee to higher groundBy Tom Westbrook SYDNEY (Reuters) - Thousands of Australians fled their homes on Monday as a powerful cyclone bore down on coastal towns in Queensland, where authorities urged 30,000 people to evacuate low lying areas most at risk from tidal surges and winds of up to 300 km per hour (185 mph). Cyclone Debbie is expected to gather strength before making landfall in the northeast state early on Tuesday, with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a category four storm, just one rung below the most dangerous wind speed level. The growing alarm persuaded the state government on Monday to warn some 25,000 people living in parts of Mackay, a city 950 kilometers (590 miles) north of the state capital Brisbane, to head south to higher ground.

Elon Musk, very normal non-supervillain, starts company to implant electrodes in your brain

Elon Musk, very normal non-supervillain, starts company to implant electrodes in your brain

Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, Tesla, and a man who wants to nuke Mars, has founded a new company. According to WSJ sources, Neuralink is a new venture that aims to pursue "neural lace" technology to help brains interface with computers.

Musk did not confirm details or comment to the WSJ, but the report claims that Musk was actively involved in setting up the firm, and may have a significant leadership responsibility. Investors will presumably hope that solving another of science fiction's biggest worries won't stop him from revolutionizing the automaking, space exploration and energy generation industries at the same time.

Neuralink's aim, according to the WSJ's sources, is to implant tiny electrodes in the brain that may allow for two-way interfacing with computers, allowing users to "one day upload and download thoughts." Although Musk didn't confirm his involvement, one of the firm's founding team members confirmed his involvement. Neuralink registered as a medical research company in California last year.

Musk's interest in a computer-brain interface hasn't come from nowhere. The billionaire is famously worried about the development of AI, and how it may pose a threat to humanity -- not just in a Terminator sense, but that computers may one day leave humans behind, and make us obsolete. The computer-brain interface is Musk's solution, allowing humans to be enhanced by AI, rather than replaced.

https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/739006012749799424

If Musk is confirmed to be involved in Neuralink, it would be the latest in a series of side projects. Since making his fortune as one of the "PayPal Mafia" during the first dot-com boom, Musk has found success with Tesla, his auto manufacturer, and SpaceX, a rocket company that has its ambitions set on a Mars colony.

In the meantime, Musk has proposed a radical new form of transportation called Hyperloop (although he gave the plans away for free, since he's too busy), worked on making solar roofs affordable for every house in America, and tried to solve LA's traffic problems by tunneling.

The three men were kidnapped from a ship eight months ago, and their rescue means no other Malaysians are currently held hostage as two others were rescued at sea last week. The military said the three Malaysians were rescued on Jolo island in the southern Philippines on Sunday but gave no details of the operation.

Did an astroid strike a Martian ocean and create a cataclysmic tsunami?

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.

Unlike many struggle veterans, Kathrada, who was imprisoned on Robben Island, never held public political office after the fall of apartheid and Mandela's election as president in 1994. When Mandela left office in 1999, after serving a single four-year term, Kathrada also stepped away from politics -- immersing himself in activism through his Ahmed Kathrada Foundation.

The Missouri senator's investigation comes amid an epidemic of opioid addiction, with 91 Americans dying everyday as a result of overdose, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "This epidemic is the direct result of a calculated sales and marketing strategy major opioid manufacturers have allegedly pursued over the past 20 years to expand their market share," McCaskill, the top Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, wrote in a letter to the drugmakers.
