The suspect fired his gun and struck one of the officers

  in the vest. A second officer fired back and hit the suspect, Splinter said.

  Both the officer and the suspect were transported to a local hospital, and the officer was treated and released. The suspect is listed in critical condition.

  Police said that per their policy, the identities of the officers involved will be released after 48 hours.

  The incident brings to mind the movie “Ocean’s Eleven.” In the film, Danny Ocea

n (Clooney), Pitt and other accomplices plan a heist on several casinos, including the Bellagio.

  Parts of Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska are grappling with the aftermath of a powerful “bomb

cyclone” that turned some areas into swamps as rivers spilled over highways and residential areas.

  The “bomb cyclone” slammed the central US with hurricane-like w

inds and blizzard conditions this week, leaving in its tracks heavy rains and flooding.

  In a news conference Friday, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts said the state has experienced historic flooding in nearly every region.

minutes that explain the Trump presidency, a bad defeat

  For President Donald Trump, a bad defeat is simply a spark for a future fight.

  The President reacted with characteristic defiance to Congress’ repudiation of the national emergency declared in the cause of funding his border wall.

  ”VETO!” he tweeted, promising to crush the insubordination of lawmakers who had tri

ed, where many others had failed, to rein in his quest for power and contempt for constitutional norms.

  Trump’s crisis management reveals defining attributes of this most unique of political care

ers: The irrepressible energy of a force of nature personality, a refusal to accept a loss and an instinctive reflex to seek a new opening.

  But it also showcases less positive traits, including his willingne

ss to trample the truth for his own benefit, a selfish streak for which friendly foreign lead

ers sometimes pay the price and even a shockingly casual way of talking about political violence.

Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time

  of national political angst and with a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittling opponents, to de

tract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida gove

rnor’s campaign that hinted at a grain of truth. The one-time GOP front-runner could never recover.

  Trump vs. Brexit — and Obama

  At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to “comment on Bre

xit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and poin

ting out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to comp

lete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.

North Korea says it may suspend nuclear talksorth Korea is conside

  North Korea is considering suspension of denuclearization talks with the United States, Deputy Foreign

Minister Choe Son Hui told reporters on Friday.

  ”We have no intention to yield to the US demands [put forward at the Hanoi summit] in any form, nor are we willing to engage in neg

otiations of this kind,” said Choe, according to Russian state news agency TASS, which attended the press event in Pyongyang.

  Choe said the North was deeply disappointed by the failure of the two sides to reach any agreements at last m

onth’s summit between Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.

  She blamed the breakdown of talks on the US side, saying the Am

erican delegation was being too demanding and inflexible: [The US] “were too busy with pu

rsuing their own political interests and had no sincere intention to achieve a result,” Choe added, according to TASS.

  However, US National Security Advisor John Bolton disputed Choe’s characterization of the breakdown of talks

as “inaccurate” and said he had discussed the reports from North Korea with his South Korean counterparts.

Hu said the two new models are likely to conduct their

first mission in about five years if all goes well. Like other Kuaizhou types, they will be mainly tas

ked with meeting demands in commercial launch service from the burgeoning satellite industry in China.

Meanwhile, designers also hope the Kuaizhou 21 will have the opportu

nity to serve government space programs such as the space station program, he added.

Zhang Di, a vice-president at the academy, previously told China Daily that the Kuaizhou 21 will b

e powerful enough to transport supplies to the country’s future space station or to ferry robotic probes to planets far from Earth.

CASIC began to develop the Kuaizhou series in 2009 as a low-cost, quick-response

product for the commercial space market. The company has launched four: two Kuaizhou 1s and two Kuaizhou 1As.

Icebreaker returns home early after hitting iceberg

The Chinese icebreaker Xuelong, carrying the 349 members of China’s 35th research mission to Antarctica, returne

d to Shanghai safely on Tuesday, about a month earlier than originally scheduled due to a collision with an iceberg.

Despite the Jan 19 collision in the Amundsen Sea, the crew managed to carry out com

prehensive research at five stations, including Changcheng, Zhongshan and Taishan, aerial geop

hysical remote sensing observation in the southeast polar ice cap, and marine surveys in the Amundsen Sea.

“Our team obtained valuable data and samples on the expedition, and filled the scientific ga

ps in the investigation of the Amundsen Sea area,” said Li Yuhong, an assistant researcher from No 3 Marine In

stitute of the Department of Natural Resources, who joined the 35th expedition

Illegal projects have been gradually eliminated to protec

  natural reserves. So far, more than 100 illegal mining projects have been withdrawn from Mount Qilian National Park, one of the country’s 10 pilot national parks, Zhang said.

  Under a plan released in 2017, China aims to set up a batch of national parks covering ab

out 200,000 square kilometers, and to form a unified management system by 2020.

  China’s achievement in afforestation was recognized in a study by the United States’ space agency NASA published last month. It sa

id China and India are leading the increase in greenery globally – with China alone accounting for a qua

rter of the global net increase in leafy area despite having only 6.6 percent of the world’s vegetated area.

  Tax authorities are preparing to enact significant tax cuts and fee reduction

s, said Wang Jun, commissioner of the State Taxation Administration, on Tuesday.

  China is establishing measures to cut taxes and fees by nearly 2 trilli

on yuan ($298 billion) this year, said Premier Li Keqiang in his Government Work Report.

said it provided tailored services for the major gov

ernment campaigns aimed at addressing three causes of popular discont

ent, namely cracking down on organized crimes, crimes disrupting the poverty relief

program, and those ruining the national environmental protection campaign.

The Supreme People’s Court said in its report that it had fulfilled the task it set itself in 201

6 to “basically resolve the problem of difficulties in implementing court rulings in two or three years”, an achi

evement that has boosted judicial credibility and strengthened public confidence in the entire justice system.

National security, crimes endangering public safety, and the correcting of wrong verdicts have

been priority concerns on the national judiciary’s recent agenda, and they will no doubt continue to have prid

e of place, and not just this year, as they are of great significance to society’s overall stability.

Carlson ended his monologue by saying he’s grateful for Fox’

  ”toughness.” Then he said “we’ve always apologized when we’re wrong, and will continue to do that” — but he pointedly did not apologize for any of his misogynistic comments from the past.

  Right after Carlson’s show on Monday, veteran Fox News analyst and former host Brit Hume

tweeted out Friday’s cable news ratings — which had Carlson in first place among total viewers — and said “doing well is the best revenge.”

  CNN analyst Joe Lockhart responded to Hume by expressing regret that “bigotry and misogyny sells so well.”

  ”It’s a stain on our country,” Lockhart wrote. “Ratings don’t trump values and I know you know that.””I hate flyin

g as it is,” she told CNN. “When I saw it was one of the new ones I was absolutely terrified.”

  Nevertheless, she boarded Turkish Airways flight 1969 for the four-hour flight.

  About two hours into the flight, she says she noticed something odd.

  ”Well they didn’t tell us straight away but I could feel some

thing was different,” she says. “And the map on the screens was showing we’d turned back.”

  The pilot then announced they would be turning back to Istanbul because UK airspace was closed, citing weather condi

tions. (Around that time, the Civil Aviation Authority in the UK closed the airspace to all Boeing 737 MAX model planes.)

  The flight turned around and landed about two hours later at the same airport from where they left.

  Tor says Turkish Airways told the passengers they will be put on a Wednesday morning flight instead.

There should be no small food shops at campuses, those

shops that have obtained permits should avoid selling snacks that have lots of salt and sugar, it said.

Canteen staff should undergo health checks every year and maintain good sanitary habits; the school should keep full a
