President Trump says he’s working with China to save ZTE:

President Donald Trump said in a tweet Sunday that he’s working to give China’s ZTE “a way to get back into business, fast.”

Jobs in China are at risk, he said

ZTE, a smartphone and telecom equipment maker that does business around the world, announced last week that it has halted its main operations after the Trump administration banned American companies from selling it vital components.

Now, Trump says he’s working with President Xi Jinping of China to get the company back on its feet.

“Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!” Trump wrote in a tweet Sunday. The US Commerce Department did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment Sunday.

Hawaii residents scrambling for masks the government says won’t help them:

As volcanic eruptions spew toxic gas into the air, some residents of Hawaii’s Big Island are frantically searching for masks for protection.

But the Hawaii Department of Health says “no commercial mask sold in stores” would actually do residents any good.
“I’m just worried about, you know, the air quality,” resident Clayton Thomas told CNN affiliate KHNL/KGMB. He wanted to get a mask for his nephew, who has asthma, but went to five different stores with no luck.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ hits China, becomes fifth biggest film ever:

China was the last market where “Avengers: Infinity War” opened, and Earth’s mightiest heroes made their premiere count.

The Marvel and Disney blockbuster made $200 million for its opening in China this weekend. The film, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, is the second biggest 3-day weekend opening ever in China, when measured in local currency, according to Disney.

With the film’s haul in China, “Infinity War” is now the fifth biggest film in history, globally.

It passed other hit films on the all time worldwide list like “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Furious 7,” “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” “Frozen” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” The film has also already passed Marvel’s last cinematic phenomenon, “Black Panther.”

Four of the top ten films on the all time global list belong to Marvel Studios.

Anna Faris and more celebs read hilarious texts from their moms:

Cue the LOLs!
Actress Anna Faris read a text aloud from her mom that said, “My dear Ani, I hope this doesn’t wake you. I just want you to know how proud your father and I are of you.

A school district in Oregon is accused of forcing LGBTQ students to read the Bible as punishment:

A school district in Oregon is accused of a disturbing pattern of intimidation and harassment against LGBTQ students. Among the allegations: Students were forced to read the Bible as punishment, and a teacher compared gay marriage to marrying a dog.

In a letter this year, the state Department of Education found that the school district in North Bend, a coastal community in southern Oregon, discriminated against students on the basis of sexual orientation.
“There is substantial evidence to support the allegation that the district subjected LGBTQ students to separate or different rules of behavior, sanctions, or other treatment,” the letter said.
The school disputes the findings and will make its case at a hearing May 24. At the time, state officials will determine whether the district violated state and federal anti-discrimination laws.
