Notorious Afghan warlord calls for peace in first public speech
Notorious Afghan warlord calls for peace in first public speechBy Ahmad Sultan MEHTAR LAM, Afghanistan (Reuters) - In his first public speech since signing a peace deal with the Afghan government, one of Afghanistan's most notorious warlords on Saturday called for the Taliban to stop fighting and begin negotiations. "I invite you to join the peace caravan and stop the pointless, meaningless and unholy war," Gulbuddin Hekmatyar said to a gathering of his followers and Afghan politicians in Laghman province, east of the capital, Kabul. "I want a free, proud, independent and Islamic Afghanistan," he said.

Italian elected new leader of Order of MaltaA 72-year-old Italian medieval art expert was on Saturday elected to head the Order of Malta, the world's oldest chivalric order. Giacomo Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto takes the reins for one year after Pope Francis ordered the resignation in January of the Order's Grand Master, Britain's Matthew Festing, following a power struggle. The influential Order of Malta, founded in Jerusalem and recognised by the pope in 1113, operates in around 120 countries and is one of the biggest landowners in Italy.

Judge orders Arkansas to conduct autopsy on executed inmate
Judge orders Arkansas to conduct autopsy on executed inmateA federal judge has ordered the Arkansas authorities to conduct an autopsy on the body of an executed inmate whose lawyer described his death as "horrifying," including jerking and convulsions during his lethal injection. Judge Kristine Baker of the US Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas issued the order late Friday, less than 24 hours after the state executed the 38-year-old convicted multiple murderer Kenneth Williams. Arkansas officials had said the compressed timeline was necessary because the state's stock of a sedative used in the lethal injection, midazolam, was set to expire at the end of April.
25 years after Los Angeles riots, progress and distrust live side by side
25 years after Los Angeles riots, progress and distrust live side by sideBy Alex Dobuzinskis and Dana Feldman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Twenty-five years after the acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers in the beating of black motorist Rodney King and the deadly riots that followed the verdict, an undercurrent of distrust pulses through a city that says it worked hard at police reform. Long before the advent of the Black Lives Matter movement, the name Rodney King became synonymous with the use of excessive force in policing minority groups. King, then 25, was battered by a squad of white officers after a traffic stop in March 1991, an incident caught in graphic detail on a bystander's video.

Fox News accused of running 'misleading' graphic on Donald Trump's unemployment record
Fox News accused of running 'misleading' graphic on Donald Trump's unemployment recordFox News has attracted controversy after it posted a graphic on Twitter about unemployment rates which users have pointed out is "misleading". On the surface, it seems uncomplicated, comparing the rate of US unemployment under four presidents on the 100th day of their first administration: Donald Trump, Barack Obama, George W Bush and Bill Clinton. The graphic appears to present the Republicans - Mr Trump and Mr Bush - favourably, showing the jobless rate after the first three months of their presidencies stood at 4.5 per cent and 4.4 per cent respectively.

Robert O’Neill, who claims to have fired the fatal bullets, has for the first time published a detailed account of the mission that lead to the 9/11 mastermind being gunned down in a secure compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in May 2011. In a dramatic extract from his new book, The Operator, published in the Mirror, the former Seal described the moment he fired two shots at Bin Laden and “split open” his head.
Russian flags rained down in a confetti-style protest during Trump's rally
Russian flags rained down in a confetti-style protest during Trump's rallyTrolling is mostly dumb, but sometimes it's an art.  President Donald Trump held a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday and, as he was speaking, someone tossed a bunch of tiny Russian flags, confetti-style, in front of the cameras streaming his speech to news networks.  SEE ALSO: Russian refugees read powerful testimonials of gay men who escaped Chechnya As far as protests go, it certainly earns points for creativity.  The Trump campaign and administration officials have had a lot of unexplained contact with Russian officials, much of which is currently under investigation. A former campaign manager allegedly laundered money for a Ukrainian political party with ties to the Russian government. The FBI got a surveillance court order in the summer of 2016 to watch a Trump adviser because of an investigation into links between the Kremlin and the current president's campaign. And if you're looking for more...oddities...they're not hard to find. The FBI is currently investigating the administration's ties to Russia, as are multiple bodies in Congress. Maybe this particular troll just wanted to remind us of that.  WATCH: In stunning exchange, Trump refuses to answer question from CNN reporter
Blue Sadie headphones review: premium audio at a premium price
Blue Sadie headphones review: premium audio at a premium priceBlue, a company known for their microphones and recording equipment, has rolled out a new line of premium headphones. The prices go from $250 to $700, but the sweetest spot for most people would probably be the $400 Sadie over-ear headphones. For the price, you get an integrated amplifier that's supposed to give you high-quality, distortion-free audio like you'd get from a fancy headphone pre-amp, but in a setup that you can take with you. The fit is probably the best part of these headphones: a pair of articulating arms adjust to fit your ears perfectly, and memory foam pads mean you can wear them for a long time without it being uncomfortable. The company claims that the design was inspired by the suspension system race cars use. While that might be a stretch, the built-in amplifier allows them to get about as loud as one, and the closed-ear design blocks out external noise very well, so you could definitely use them in a crowded area to enjoy your music in peace. As for style, they're a clean dark grey with metallic accents, and you can tell right away that they're top of line cans. The nice thing is that unlike a lot of other headphones, they aren't super gaudy, and they don't make you look like a wanna-be club D.J. When it comes to practicality, things also look good. The headphones come with a 4-foot aux cable with iPhone controls that allow you to play, pause and skip songs, as well as a longer 10' cable to use with a desktop computer, or anywhere where you need a bit more wiggle room. As for the sound, it's about what you would expect for headphones that retail for about four hundred dollars: it's clear, warm, and the integrated amplifier allows you to crank up the volume without distorting the sound quality. Sadly, that's really the best thing you can say about the amp: it means you don't have to crank the volume on your smartphone, so you don't get swamped with distortion. But you're still relying on your smartphone's amplifier for the original signal, so you're never going to get the kind of audio quality you would with a pre-amp and a better-definition source. The amp has two settings, a regular amp mode and Amp+, which is supposed to emulate the sound of vinyl records. In practice, Amp+ is louder than the regular amp setting, but other differences are difficult to discern. In some ways, I think Blue's missed an ideal chance here: one of the benefits of smartphones without traditional headphone jacks was supposed to be headphones that connect with a Lightning or USB-C connection. Those headphones would use their own internal amp rather than the phone's amplifier, allowing for much better audio quality. The Sadies already have the difficult part of that, namely the dedicated amplifier. With an optional Lightning or USB-C connector, I could see a major improvement in sound fidelity, and an option to play high-bitrate music without the limitation of the iPhone's audio circuitry. Without a standout feature like that, the Sadies become like any other pair of expensive, great-sounding on-ear headphones. The sound is great, fit is exceptional, but $400 is still a high asking price for a standard, cabled pair of headphones.

China-built amphibious aircraft takes maiden flight: Xinhua
China-built amphibious aircraft takes maiden flight: XinhuaChina's domestically developed AG600, the world's largest amphibious aircraft, took its maiden flight ahead of schedule on Saturday from the southern city of Zhuhai, according to the official Xinhua news agency. The AG600 was designed to extinguish forest fires and carry out rescue missions at sea, Xinhua said on Saturday, adding that it could also "be used to monitor and protect the ocean." The seaplane's maiden flight comes amid China's increasing assertiveness to its territorial claims in the disputed South China Sea where it is building airfields and deploying military equipment, rattling nerves in the Asia-Pacific region and the United States.
Turkey blocks Wikipedia access, bans TV dating shows
Turkey blocks Wikipedia access, bans TV dating showsTurkey on Saturday blocked all access to Wikipedia and banned television dating shows, adding to fears of a crackdown after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's victory in a referendum on enhancing his powers. The government also dismissed almost 4,000 public officials in the latest wave of the purge under the over nine-month state of emergency that has followed last July's failed coup. Erdogan, who has dominated Turkey since 2003 as premier and now president, narrowly won the April 16 referendum on enhancing his powers which supporters believe will lead to better government but critics say creates one man rule.

Orban was summoned to a meeting with top officials from the European People's Party (EPP) over the law that could force the closure of a Budapest university founded by US billionaire George Soros. The European Commission on Wednesday launched legal action against Hungary over the issue, giving the government one month to comply or face being taken to court.

In a telephone call on Sunday, Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, reassured his South Korean counterpart, Kim Kwan-jin, that the U.S. alliance with South Korea was its top priority in the Asia-Pacific region, the South's presidential office said.

At the end of its line, emerging from the water tail-first, like a giant hooked tarpon, is the impossibly gorgeous, smoky silver, Aston Martin DB10 sports coupe, purpose built as a one-off (well, ten-off) by Aston design chief Marek Reichman in collaboration with director Sam Mendes, just for “Spectre,” the 24th James Bond film, and the 12th featuring the venerable British sporting luxury brand.
