Trump condemns leaks after UK police briefly halt information sharingBy Elizabeth Piper and Estelle Shirbon BRUSSELS/LONDON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Thursday that "deeply troubling" leaks to U.S. media about the Manchester suicide bombing would be investigated, after irate British police briefly stopped sharing information with U.S. agencies. Prime Minister Theresa May raised British concerns with Trump at a NATO summit in Brussels, telling him intelligence shared between their two countries had to remain secure, in a rare public show of dissatisfaction with Britain's closest security ally.

Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his human

Good service dog makes it into school yearbook right next to his humanService dogs deserve recognition for the great deeds they perform daily. To them, they aren't even great deeds. They are just ... deeds. Andrew "AJ" Schalk, a 16-year-old junior at Stafford High School in Virginia, certainly wanted to give his service dog, Alpha, the respect that was deserved for someone who has saved his life several times. So he asked his school if they'd be willing to give his dog a spot in the yearbook, and the result is adorable.  That's a GOOD dog if I've ever seen one. SEE ALSO: Inspirational golden retriever perfectly demonstrates how to get swole for the summer Just a boy and his (service) dog pic.twitter.com/uM5f9P9X3V — AJ (@t1dfighter_aj) May 18, 2017 Schalk was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009. "The decision to get a service dog came about just to have greater control over my blood sugar and A1C, and Alpha has even saved my life on multiple occasions," Schalk said. As Schalk's service dog, Alpha's job is to alert Schalk if his blood sugar is getting too low or too high by sniffing his breath. If undetected, Schalk could be in danger. But with Alpha on the case, he has peace of mind. Andrew Schalk and his good boy, Alpha.Image: Andrew SchalkAlpha joined Schalk's family when he was four months old, and has now been with Schalk for three and a half years. Halfway through the previous school year, Schalk started bringing Alpha with him to school. "I started by bringing him once a week, then twice, and so on and so forth until he was fully acclimated," Schalk explained. Alpha is now a consistent presence at Stafford High, attending classes with Schalk every day. Image: andrew schalk"Alpha is not a distraction at all!" Schalk said. "He lays under my desk during class, and even though everyone knows he is there, everyone still pays attention to class and loves having him there." Who wouldn't love knowing that there is a dog nearby at all times? We sure wouldn't mind. Alpha is so beloved at the school, in fact, that when Schalk asked if he could be in the yearbook the request was happily granted. "I talked to a friend of mine in the yearbook club and asked of we could get Alpha into the yearbook," Schalk said. "She took it to the teacher in charge and all the teachers and administration were 100% supportive." Good boy Alpha also got himself an official student ID. Alpha clearly dressed up for picture day.Image: andrew schalk"All my classmates loved seeing Alpha in the yearbook," Schalk said. "And people that I didn't know loved the surprise of having a service dog in the yearbook." Schalk, a junior, has one more year of high school left, and that means Alpha gets to make another yearbook cameo.  "I for sure plan on having him in the yearbook next year as well," Schalk confirmed.

Safety calls increase between US, Russia militaries

Safety calls increase between US, Russia militariesRussian and US military officials are increasingly communicating about operations in Syria -- and doing so at a higher level -- as both countries wage separate but overlapping campaigns, a US general said Wednesday. Lieutenant General Jeffrey Harrigian, who heads US Air Forces Central Command, said generals from both militaries are now using a special "deconfliction" hotline to avoid mishaps. The hotline, which had intially been staffed by lower-ranking officers, was established in late 2015 after Russia entered the Syrian war to prop up the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

Apple designer made a $12,000 hourglass that comes with an iPhone-worthy design story

Apple designer made a $12,000 hourglass that comes with an iPhone-worthy design story

Design stories can be pretty silly, and that’s especially true for Samsung’s annoying smartphone design stories — here’s the most recent Galaxy S8 story. But Samsung designers aren’t the only ones that have exaggerated tales about their creations, and we’ve got one more such example for you. This time around, it comes from an Apple designer, although it doesn’t concern an Apple product.

Marc Newson created a special hourglass for Hodinkee that retails for $12,000. It’s handcrafted, and it contains noisy nanoballs instead of boring sand. No, there’s absolutely no reason to buy one, even if it’s a Newson creation.

The hourglass is 150mm tall and 125mm across at the widest point. It contains 1.3 million tiny copper balls that measure just 0.6mm in diameter, and measures precisely 10 minutes.

But the way Newson and Hodinkee describe it makes it sound like something that’s actually worth buying/watching/enjoying. It’s not.

“Sometimes you see an object, and it just captivates you. You can't look away. You can't even really explain what you're looking at either,” Hodinkee says. “Marc Newson's Hourglass is one such object. It takes the idea of one of the most basic time-measuring instruments ever devised, and pushes it to its limits.” Alright.

"It is perhaps one of the most fundamental objects in the world of timekeeping, and arguably one of the oldest, but I love the fact that it is so sort of deeply esoteric, and it has this strange and mesmeric quality," Newson says in the promo video at the end of this post.

"On one hand, you're witnessing time. But on the other hand, it's completely sort of timeless, and it actually if anything focuses your attention on the opposite of time, if that makes any sense."

It doesn’t. And, look, the actual manufacturing of the hourglass is impressive itself. The glass object requires a certain precision, and it’s hand made, which is remarkable. It’s just Hodinkee and Newson’s design stories that are annoying.

“Watching the Hourglass is a multi-sensory experience that cannot be communicated in words,” the blog post explains. “The combination of watching those first few nanoballs bounce around the bottom chamber, the flow begin to change surface patterns in the top chamber, and the unique sound of the nanoballs flying around, hitting the glass and one another as they settle at the bottom, is utterly mesmerizing. Invariably, the first time we show it to someone, there's a gasp, a big smile, and sometimes even a little giggle as they lean in and get ready to watch for the full 10 minutes.” Mkay.

Charging bear attacks hunter in terrifying encounter caught on video

Charging bear attacks hunter in terrifying encounter caught on videoA Canadian hunter is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a black bear. Richard Wesley was bow hunting near Fire River, Ontario, when he noticed a large black bear roaming nearby. At first, the bear seemed unfazed by Wesley's presence, but when the hunter makes a sound in an attempt to scare off the approaching bear, it charges. Wesley attempts to make as much noise as possible, and even punches the attacking bear in the face. The camera falls and the hunter returns just a few seconds later, visibly shook by the near death experience. "I should have shot a long time ago," Wesley says into the camera just seconds after the attack.  Luckily, the hunter walked away nearly unscathed.  "No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down," Wesley wrote on YouTube.  "Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome."
