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.

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.

Why Trump rollback of Obama climate policies could be a long slogWith a flourish of his pen Tuesday, President Trump promised a full-scale assault on the Obama administration’s signature climate-change initiative. Mr. Trump's executive order starts the process of scrapping Mr. Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which calls on states to reduce electric-utility emissions that scientists say are changing Earth’s climate. Instead, Trump wants to go all-in on expanding US energy jobs, notably in coal mining and fossil fuels.

Why the 'Fearless Girl' statue will stay put on Wall StreetThe 50-inch bronze "Fearless Girl" statue, which currently stands in front of Wall Street's famed "Charging Bull" sculpture, will be allowed to stay – at least until February 2018. The statue was installed on the eve of International Women's Day earlier this month as a commentary on the lack of gender diversity in the workplace. Initially, the statue was supposed to stay facing down the bull for a week, but in light of the popularity of the figure, the permit allowing the temporary art installation to stay was extended until April 2.

Why is someone trying to shutter one of Russia's top private universities?Generally, prestigious private universities with hundreds of students don't get shut down over fairly minor, six-month-old technical issues that have since been resolved. What appears to be on full display is a hallmark of the Vladimir Putin-era: a new brand of domestic "lawfare," in which state-run courts enforce political conformity through legal pretexts. One illustrative recent example is a local court's upholding of an embezzlement conviction against opposition leader Alexei Navalny, which has the collateral effect of barring him from running in presidential elections that are about a year away.

More than 1,000 arrested in Belarus protests against 'parasite law'A human rights group said more than 1,000 people were arrested across Belarus over the weekend, as another wave of unsanctioned protests against authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko reached the streets of Minsk and other cities. Vesna told the Associated Press that about 150 of those arrested have been sentenced to jail terms of up 25 days. The demonstrations against a leader who has been described as Europe's last dictator started last month when frustration over a tax against the unemployed boiled over and 2,000 protesters gathered in opposition to the $250 annual tax locally known as the “law against social parasites.” At the start of 2017, the average monthly salary was $380.

Watch the moment an Amazon drone delivers sunscreen for the first timeAmazon has taken another small autonomous step toward drone delivery.  The company completed its first public United States delivery using one of its Prime Air delivery drones at a robotics conference in California on Monday, within the airspace of the Palm Springs Airport. SEE ALSO: Forget taxis; Dubai wants to fly you around in passenger drones The drone lands in a field, drops off a four-plus pound box of sunscreen bottles, and buzzes back up into the sky. Amazon's first drone delivery took place late last year in the United Kingdom, where regulations are a bit more drone-friendly. The drone delivered an Amazon Fire TV and a bag of popcorn.  But Amazon did conduct its U.S. delivery with the FAA's help, which demonstrates coordination and communication on at least some level.  Several legislatures in the U.S. are slowly coming around to robotics. Earlier this month, Virginia passed legislation that allows robots to roam around on sidewalks delivering packages.  Though Amazon doesn't seem to have a plan for ground-based drone delivery, they voiced support for Virginia's move. For them, the greater acceptance of autonomous delivery, the better.  WATCH: Use Jedi mind tricks to command this drone

India says no to most of Apple's demandsApple is not getting any special treatment from the Indian government.  Despite the company’s imminent plans to begin manufacturing iPhones in the country, the Indian government remains committed to not folding to the Cupertino giant’s demands.  SEE ALSO: Apple had its best year ever in world's fastest growing smartphone market When asked if the government has accepted the iPhone maker’s demands, commerce and industry minister Nirmala Sitharaman told Rajya Sabha (Council of States) that the ministry has said "no" to "most" of them. Apple has put up an "unprecedented" list of demands before the government. "Apple India has sought concessions, including duty exemptions on manufacturing and repair units, components, capital equipment including parts and consumables for smartphone manufacturing and service/repair for a period of 15 years," Sitharaman added. Apple sees big potential in India. The company’s CEO paid his maiden visit to the nation last year and expressed desires to bolster the company’s business in the country. Even though India remains one of the few places that has shown strong iPhone sales, there is no easy way for Apple to continue the momentum. For one, more than 50 percent of iPhones sold in the nation last year were iPhone 5s models. The four-year-old iPhone sells for under $300 in the country. Analysts say the company needs to lower the prices of the iPhone, which are higher in India due to domestic import laws. Apple's solution of sorts was to try to convince the Indian government to permit sales of refurbished iPhones — a proposal India was quick to discard.  Now Apple’s biggest bet at making iPhones affordable (and possibly to get India to say yes to refurbished iPhones) is if it could start manufacturing locally.  The Indian government offers various benefits to overseas companies to setup manufacturing plants in India as such efforts help in creation of new jobs and foster the development of cities and states.  Mashablewas first to report about Apple’s plans to manufacture iPhone SE in India starting as early as April. It appears Apple will have to make do with the same usual incentives that other international brands get. WATCH: You can now take selfies... with your feet?

Press secretary Sean Spicer was asked during Tuesday’s briefing about possible expansions of Medicaid coverage in Kansas, Georgia and Virginia. The three states are in varying stages of moving toward joining the 31 states that have already opted in to Obamacare’s expansion of  the decades-old program, which covers 74 million Americans.

When Someone You Love Spirals Out of Control, When Do You Stay and When Do You Go?Though the two are still legally married, Khloe Kardashian left the basketball star after five years together in 2013, reportedly over his struggle with substance abuse and, primarily, his addiction to cocaine.  Odom remains in critical condition, still unconscious, with Kardashian by his side after she rushed to Las Vegas upon hearing the news.  Earlier this week, University of Southern California football coach Steve Sarkisian was fired, allegedly as a result of his own struggle with alcoholism and his violation of the school’s zero-tolerance policy regarding alcohol use. The 41-year-old has three children with his estranged wife.  Also this week, reality TV star Scott Disick, the former boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian and father of her children, checked into rehab to get help for his addiction problems.

High School Quarterback’s Tragic Death Highlights Silent Danger of an Enlarged SpleenA spleen can become enlarged for many reasons, including genetic diseases, William Katkov, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., tells Yahoo Health. Here’s why that’s a problem: A person may feel better and resume their normal activities, but their enlarged spleen is more susceptible to rupturing and may no longer be protected by their ribcage, leaving it incredibly vulnerable to injury. “An enlarged spleen is at an increased risk for rupture or injury in the setting of normal trauma, like a football game, diving into a pool, or minor car accident,” Katkov says. While an enlarged spleen can be asymptomatic, Katkov says a person can feel uncomfortable or have a feeling of fullness in their upper abdomen on the left side.

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.

Wild Thai tiger cub footage sparks hope for endangered speciesConservationists on Tuesday hailed the discovery of a new breeding population of tigers in Thailand as a "miraculous" victory for a sub-species nearly wiped out by poaching. Images of some tigers including six cubs, captured by camera traps in an eastern Thai jungle throughout 2016, confirm the presence of what is only the world's second known breeding population of the endangered Indochinese tiger. The only other growing population -- the largest in the world with about three dozen tigers -- is based in a western forest corridor in Thailand near the border with Myanmar.

It is unclear what sorts of products Neuralink might create, but people who have had discussions with the company describe a strategy similar to space launch company SpaceX and Tesla, the Journal report said.

Concorde 2.0 edges closer as startup Boom completes $33m funding roundOver 13 years since Concorde was retired from service, a US startup from Denver, Colorado believes it can offer supersonic flights between London and New York which take just over three hours and cost the same as today's business class seats. Boom Technology has now completed a $33m (£26m) funding round, taking its total funding to $41m, and has begun wind tunnel tests on a model of its plane. After this, the cash injection means Boom now has enough money to finish its first prototype, begin its flight test programme, and set a new speed record for civilian aircraft.

"We have been informed that two Caucasian bodies have been found in shallow graves in the search area, one male and one female," John Sharp, the father of Michael, wrote on his Facebook page. Congo Communications Minister Lambert Mende said villagers had discovered three bodies - two Caucasians and one Congolese - not far from where the experts group disappeared.

Elon Musk, very normal non-supervillain, starts company to implant electrodes in your brainElon 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/739006012749799424If 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 affordablefor every house in America, and tried to solve LA's traffic problemsby tunneling.

Venezuela seeks to stymie OAS meeting, vows 'severe' responseBy Diego Oré and Lesley Wroughton CARACAS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Venezuela called on Monday for the suspension of an Organization of American States meeting intended to air regional concerns over the OPEC nation's economic crisis and democratic standards. The Washington-based OAS is due to debate Venezuela on Tuesday after its secretary-general, Luis Almagro, said the country should be suspended from the regional bloc if it does not hold elections. Last week, 14 nations urged elections and freedom of jailed opponents of President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government, turning up the pressure after authorities thwarted a referendum on him last year and postponed local polls.
