Trump’s Race Against The Clock To Do Something:

Donald Trump’s first 100 days as President is ending as it began, in a tempestuous flurry of activity, executive power flexing and controversy.

And just like the President’s first few days in the White House, it’s not immediately clear what exactly it all adds up to.

On the one hand, the White House is insisting, like the boss in the Oval Office, that the First 100 days milestone is ridiculous, but on the other hand they are by all indications racing to make the most of every hour until Saturday’s deadline.

 

Bollywood’s ‘Original Heartthrob’ Vinod Khanna Dies At 70:

Veteran Indian actor Vinod Khanna has died at the age of 70, according to a hospital statement.

Khanna died of advanced bladder cancer on Thursday morning, said Tushar Pania, from the HN Reliance Foundation and Research Centre in Mumbai.
Dubbed Bollywood’s “original heartthrob,” Khanna had reportedly been battling cancer for several years.
Last month, he was hospitalized in Mumbai due to severe dehydration and bladder cancer, according to a report in the Hindustan Times. A photograph of him in a hospital gown looking very frail went viral on social media.

An Artist Creates A Mural Of Michelle Obama And Nobody’s Happy:

A new mural of former first lady Michelle Obama, painted on a building in the Chicago neighborhood where she lived as a child and remains popular, would seem like an innocuous project.

But the mural, by Chicago artist Chris Devins, has sparked intense debate — and not for the usual political reasons.
Shortly after Devins finished the mural last Friday, criticism began bubbling up online. People accused him of copying the image from Rhode Island art student Gelila Mesfin, who had posted a nearly identical portrait of Michelle Obama on Instagram last year.

Baltimore Asks FBI For Help: ‘Murder Is Out Of Control’:

The number of homicides in Baltimore this year is soaring — reaching 100 before the end of April for the first time in nearly two decades — and the mayor is asking the FBI for more help.

“Murder is out of control,” said Mayor Catherine Pugh, at her weekly news briefing Wednesday. “There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get.”
The mayor met recently with the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Baltimore office and asked for additional agents to help local police battle violent crime in the city, according to the mayor’s spokesman, Anthony McCarthy. He said that could either mean bringing in more FBI agents from other field offices across the country or reassigning agents already in Baltimore to work with local police investigating violent crime.

The 10 Things United Is Doing To Avoid Another Dust-Up, Drag-Out Passenger Fiasco:

United Airlines really wants to avoid another customer service disaster. And make flying its airline better in the process.

The airline said it is making 10 changes to prevent a repeat of what happened to Dr. David Dao, who was dragged from a flight because the carrier needed extra seats for commuting crew members. Video of the April 9 incident quickly went viral. Dr. Dao suffered a concussion and two missing teeth.

United had promised a review by April 30 of what happened aboard flight 3411 and changes to reduce involuntary denial of boarding or bumping “to as close to zero as possible.”

“Our review shows that many things went wrong that day, but the headline is clear: our policies got in the way of our values and procedures interfered in doing what’s right,” said United chief executive Oscar Munoz in a statement.
