Thai rescue operation resumes for 9 still trapped inside cave:

The rescue operation to remove eight Thai boys and their coach who are still trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand has resumed, according to a Thai Navy official with knowledge of the operation.

“The operation has begun and it is ongoing at the moment,” the navy officer told CNN. He said Monday’s mission involved the same divers who carried out Sunday’s treacherous operation, which took nine hours and led to the rescue of four boys.

Five ambulances were seen driving toward the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex, and at least one helicopter was also seen heading towards the cave entrance:

Giuliani confirms WH contested Mueller interview with John Kelly:

Rudy Giuliani confirmed on Sunday that the White House contested a request from the special counsel to interview White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Giuliani, in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” also spoke about the latest preconditions he is demanding for an interview between the special counsel and President Donald Trump.
Asked about a report in The New York Times that included news of the pushback against special counsel Robert Mueller’s request for an interview with Kelly, Giuliani said the special counsel team was dealing with White House attorney Emmet Flood on that issue.
“I’m glad to see that Emmet is using a high standard because after all, we’ve given them everything they ask,” Giuliani said. “Thirty-two witnesses, no invocation of privilege. 1.4 million documents, no invocation of privilege. Tell me we have something to hide. We have nothing to hide.”

As Basketball Within Borders shared on Instagram, “A LeBron-hating Laker fanatic put out a contract to get this mural of #LeBronJames vandalized today in California. Dude need to get extra security around town. The hate is real.”

Elvis Costello cancels tour dates to recover from cancer surgery:

Elvis Costello has canceled the remaining six dates of his European tour to recover from surgery to treat what the musician calls “a small but very aggressive cancerous malignancy,” according to a statement posted to his website.

The canceled dates of Costello’s European tour include shows in the United Kingdom, Croatia and Austria.
Costello said his surgery took place six weeks ago and was so successful, he decided to go on with plans for his European tour. However, he has now realized he must “accept that it is going to take longer than I would have wished for me to recover my full strength,” the statement said.
“Post-surgical guidelines for such surgery, recommend three weeks to four weeks recovery depending on whether you are returning to a desk job or an occupation that involves physical work or travel,” he wrote. “It was impossible to judge how this advisory would line up with the demands on a traveling musician, playing 90-minute to 2-hour plus performances on a nightly basis but by the time we reached the Edinburgh Playhouse, I was almost fooled into thinking that normal service had been resumed.”
