Russian Federation earlier this week denied a chemical weapons attack took place in Syria saying the deaths in Khan Sheikhoun were caused by a Syrian regime airstrike on a rebel-controlled chemical weapons factory on the ground. The statement was made in the name of a previously unheard of "shared operations room" between Russia, Iran and allied forces. The US ambassador's statements will not quell rising concerns about the effect of Friday's bombing.

Kansas GOP Treasury Secretary Bob Estes defeated Democratic newcomer James Thompson by more than 8,000 votes and almost 7 percentage points.

High-profile Republicans got involved in the race at the last minute, including President Trump.
This has been stalled since that Nunes visit to the White House and his description about what he said he learned from these officials with the Trump administration.

In the run up to the Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP had promised in its manifesto that small and landless farmers will get loan waivers, which effectively means that farmers who raise their crop on 1-2 hectare land will benefit from the scheme.
Venezuela protesters marched through Caracas and cities across the country on Saturday, as the government's ban of Venezuela's top opposition leader from office breathed life into the disparate opposition and fueled the first sustained anti-government demonstrations since 2014.
But the real offensive star of the night was Cespedes, who belted three home runs and a double. "Any player that hits three homers would have fun", he said through an interpreter. He'd double and hit into a forceout, though the damage was already done. The Mets entered with a.192 team batting average and eight homers in seven games.
The club has confirmed its authenticity. It's one of the most unique, coveted pieces of clothing in all of sports: the green jacket. Tournament officials authenticated the piece as a real Master's trophy jacket from the 1950s - one of the earliest in existence - but they refused to speculate as to which Masters champion may have originally won it.
Pentagon and US -led coalition officials have said they do not work hand in hand with Syrian and Russian forces in fighting IS, though they admit to sometimes using a "deconfliction channel" to make Russian commanders aware of their military positions and intentions.
Najib Danish, a spokesman for the ministry, told Anadolu Agency the blast left five people dead and 10 more injured.

Though the Kremlin had declined to say whether the leaders would meet, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday: "There is a certain likelihood". Mr Tillerson reiterated the United States view that Assad aircraft carried out the attack.
Declining to reveal them, Najib said Malaysia held firm to its stand that the two North Korean suspects holed up in the embassy - second secretary Hyon Kwang-song and Air Koryo employee Kim Uk-il - must be questioned and investigated before they could be released.
President Donald Trump ordered the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, along with three guided-missile destroyers and cruisers to leave Singapore Saturday in response to North Korea's latest missile test, according to the Times. US President Donald Trump claimed China has turned a fleet of coal-carrying cargo ships back to North Korea this week, and described it as a " big step" towards cracking down on the rogue state.
Following the suspected attack, US President Donald Trump launched air strikes against a Syrian government air base, and branded Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad a "dictator" who had "launched a disgusting chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians".
The show of naval force by Tokyo comes as concern grows in Japan over the rapid pace of North Korea's ballistic missile development and U.S. President Donald Trump's threat of unilateral action to solve the North Korean problem. He wrote : "If China decides to help, that would be great. The last thing we want to see is a nuclear North Korea that threatens the coast of the United States, or any other country".
It is still unclear what exactly transpired during their meet as the Chinese leader did not offer any commitment on North Korea. He replied: "I think the message that any nation can take is if you violate worldwide norms, if you violate global agreements, if you fail to live up to commitments, if you become a threat to others, at some point a response is likely to be undertaken".

But a spokeswoman for the Podesta Group now tells the Associated Press that the firm is registering under FARA because of "information brought to light in recent months".

The US officials raised the stakes before Mr Tillerson's visit to Moscow with the disclosure that the administration had reached the preliminary conclusion that Russian Federation knew in advance of the chemical weapons attack on Khan Sheikhoun, which left at least 80 dead.
The results were announced as the Russian military said the Syrian government is willing to let global experts examine its military base for signs of chemical weapons. United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Sunday that the administration would not let Russian Federation "cover for this regime anymore". The talks will be a major test of Tillerson's diplomatic skills.
Phoenix will battle it out with at least nine other cities for the two MLS expansion franchises that are expected to be awarded later this year. Drogba's role as a player and part-owner is certainly unusual, but the former Chelsea player says he's spoken with Blues owner Roman Abramovic about taking on a front-office role.
No, if Bannon gets fired, it will be because he was just too committed to Trump's populist, working-class base, and the White House's cucks just couldn't take it. For now, it seems Kushner and Bannon are trying to play nice, holding what Politico calls a "bury-the-hatchet meeting" that was ordered by Trump.

South Korea's flag flew and its anthem sounded in Pyongyang on Friday as its women's football team played out a 1-1 draw with their neighbours, in the first ever competitive soccer match between the two countries hosted by the North.

The Toronto Maple Leafs did Boston what appears to be a huge favour by losing their regular-season finale vs. Columbus 3-2 at home. Giving the Boston Bruins possession will be suicide for the Senators' Stanley Cup goals, keeping the Corsi For percentage in mind, and the fact that Brad Marchand is now on a hot goal-scoring streak and is the number one goal scorer since the beginning of the year.
Days earlier, she had said the opposite. The newly hardened view of Moscow comes as the president has tried to shake suspicions about the motives behind his campaign calls for warmer relations. The talks of top Russian and United States diplomats have already turned into a special format. "I do not know who saw them". "We can not let this happen again", Tillerson said of the chemical attack.
But any such expectations have crashed into reality amid the nasty back-and-forth over Syria and ongoing USA investigations into Russia's alleged interference in America's US presidential election.

The steel and aluminum markets are a particular focus, as USA officials say China's trade policies in those areas have impacted US manufacturers. The country's largest companies in these sectors, such as Citic Securities and China Life Insurance, have achieved enormous scale in the 15 years since the world's second-biggest economy joined the World Trade Organization, making them formidable competitors for new entrants to the market.
It was stark evidence that the president is moving ever further from his campaign promises to establish better ties with Moscow. Politics, worldwide or otherwise, is a game of optics, and Trump's dismal ability to form a consistent foreign policy will make it harder for him to win over supporters (at least, outside the U.S.) on any potential campaign against Assad - even in retaliation for something as terrible as gassing his own people.
