The unveiling is significant as it marks the first time Trump has officially laid out her formal policy goals as the first lady. Previously she had worked on combating a range of issues such as cyberbullying, neonatal opioid effects, social inclusion, and internet safety.
Her campaign, dubbed "Be Best" will help to combat issues facing children today and will include three main pillars centered on wellbeing, social media use, and opioid abuse.
"Together, I believe we should strive to provide kids with the tools they need to cultivate their social and emotional health," Trump said at the event. "Most importantly I will continue to travel and speak to children directly to speak about issues they face."
Trump has long said he wanted to visit the models himself so he can pick a winner, though the Department of Homeland Security says elements of each design are expected to be used.
Trump was briefed on eight towering prototypes Tuesday, including one with blue steel on top. He asked which of the models are the hardest to climb. He also said certain parts of California are desperate for a wall to break the flow of illegal immigration.
President Trump said: "If you didn't have walls over here you wouldn't even have a country."
Trump also said that "they re-established law and order in San Diego" with a wall.
She sent a “Goodbye” text and went to a local park to do the deed.
Police officers met the teen there and stopped her.
One officer sat with her for hours and eventually convinced Jazz to choose life.
Three years later, Jazz has publicly thanked her savior:
“You sat with me on the hospital bed, continuing to speak into my future and telling me of the hope you knew. Hours past and your shift had ended and you were still by my side.”
She got a heartwarming response from the officer who saved her:
Constable Meika Campbell: “I feel privileged and honoured that her story was told and commend her for openly sharing her demons to make a difference. Jazz is an inspiration and has gone on to help so many of those within our communities battling depression.”
Lennox Salcedo ran for the plate just like the big-league ballplayers do on TV—when the camera is turned to super-slow-motion.
The clever toddler realized that this was his moment to shine—he was about to score a run for his team! He made the moment last.
Despite his coach telling him to run as fast as he could, little Lennox acted out a slow-mo sprint.
When Lennox finally did reach home, collapsing dramatically atop the plate, everyone was laughing, realizing they had witnessed not only a sportsman’s first moment of glory but also a demonstration of comedic brilliance.
U.S. military C-130 plane crashes-EET hilaryl 2018-05-020 views A military C-130 aircraft crashed next to a road near Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport in Port Wentsworth, Georgia, on May 2, according to reports.
In this footage from a CCTV camera of a business located near the airport, an airplane descends nose first into the ground, and then a large plume of smoke rises above the horizon.
The local department of transportation said the plane crashed on a highway just north of the location where this video was filmed.
Five people were reportedly on board the plane, and all were killed, local media reported.
Now North Korean leader Kim Jong-un says he will invite journalists and experts to bear witness when his country closes the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in May.
That's according to Seoul officials after Kim met South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade.
That meeting paves the way for U.S. President Donald Trump to meet with Kim - something that Trump said would happen in three to four weeks.
On Friday (April 27), Kim and Moon vowed "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".
Trump held a 75-minute call with Moon on Saturday (April 28) and said the commitment to denuclearization was good for the whole world.
And North Korean state media, renowned for its bellicose bulletins, called the summit a turning point for the Koreas.
However, the declaration did not set out steps as to how denuclearization would be achieved, or clear up whether North Korea is willing to give up its arsenal of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.
State television had announced before the summit that Pyongyang would immediately suspend nuclear and missile tests and scrap its nuclear test site.
Experts say much of the site was rendered useless when a tunnel collapsed last year but Kim said there were two additional tunnels that remain "in a very good condition".
In another gesture of cross-border cooperation, Kim pledged to scrap a unique time zone created by Pyongyang in 2015, and said the North will move it clocks forward by half an hour to be in sync with the South.
ABBA is one of the most commercially successful music groups in history with more than 375 million albums and singles sold. They released nine studio albums between 1973 and their breakup in 1982.
"We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio," the band said in a press release. "And it was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!"
ABBA have recorded two new songs and one of them "I still have faith in you" will be performed by digital avatars in a TV special set for broadcast in December.
The four shot to fame by winning the 1974 Eurovision song contest with "Waterloo" and went on to have global success with hits such as Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Thank You for the Music and Money, Money, Money.
The group's members are now in their sixties and seventies. In the past, they have rejected calls to re-form and have appeared only rarely together in public.
Cosby, 80, best known for “The Cosby Show” in the 1980s, was convicted of drugging a friend in 2004 before assaulting her.
After the conviction, he now faces a prison term of up to 10 years for three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand, 45, after a three-week-long trial at the Montgomery County courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania.
For Cosby, who is elderly and in poor health, a 10-year-long prison term is essentially a death sentence.
About 60 women have publically accused Cosby over five decades of being a sexual abuser. Due to the statute of limitation, only one charge was brought against him.
“It’s a victory not just for the 62 of us who have come forward but for all survivors of sexual assault, female and male,” Cosby accuser Lily Bernard told reporters, Reuters reported. “I feel like my faith in humanity is restored.”

The blast at the Husky Energy oil refinery happened at about 10 a.m. Five people were taken to hospitals in Duluth, Minnesota, Superior Fire Chief Steve Panger told The Associated Press. He doesn't know the extent of their injuries. Others were walking wounded. There were no known fatalities.
A contractor who was inside the building told WDIO television that the explosion sounded like "a sonic boom" and that it happened when crews were working on shutting the plant down for repairs.
Panger said the fire was out by 11:20 a.m. He said a small tank exploded, and the product was either crude oil or asphalt.
Superior police are advising people to stay away from the area and roads around the refinery have been blocked off. There have been no neighbourhood evacuations. Superior is a city of about 27,000 people that borders Minnesota to the north and the tip of Lake Superior.
No damage estimate was available. The Superior Fire Department sent all three engine companies to the explosion, and nearby Duluth sent over a command vehicle.
Calgary-Alberta-based Husky Energy refinery bought the refinery from Indianapolis-based Calumet Specialty Products Partners last year for over $490 million. It's Wisconsin's only refinery, and produces gasoline, asphalt and other products.
The refinery, which dates back to the early 1950s, has a professing capacity of around 50,000 barrels per day and a storage capacity of 3.6 million barrels of crude and products. It processes both heavy crude from the Canadian tar sands in Alberta and lighter North Dakota Bakken crude.
Former press secretary Sean Spicer helped unveil the new wax figure.
Sean Spicer, Former White House Press Secretary: "She's very supportive, she's very well-read and always interested in what's happening, and, to the extent possible, willing to share her thoughts and ideas as far as what's going on. I did get the chance before this to measure [it] up and it is unbelievably lifelike. So, thank you for taking me back."
The first lady's wax figure is dressed in a blue Roland Mouret dress.
She wore the dress to the Republican debate in March 2016.
A team of 20 artists worked with Trump's team to capture Mrs. Trump’s features over 3-4 months.
They studied over 250 angles of the first lady.
Visitors can ‘Give Melania a Voice' by posting on the Madame Tussauds Twitter page.
The figure will be on display until May 31 before being moved to Washington.
Motorcyclists Help Woman Cross Busy Intersection hilaryl 2018-04-250 views These motorcyclists were riding around town when they came across an older woman standing in the middle of an intersection. After motioning to each other to turn around, they blocked oncoming traffic with their bikes in order to help her cross safely.
The situation took place on April 20 in the town of Denham Springs.
Lynn Bienvenu was part of the procession, as she was attending the funeral of her cousin.
The basketball players noticed the procession go by and knelt until it passed, Bienvenu said.
Lynn Bienvenu: "They took a knee not out of disrespect, but out of honor. There was not an adult in sight to tell them to stop playing. This meant a great deal to our family. May God bless each one as I feel they will achieve greatness."
The picture has gone viral on social media.
Bienvenu later tagged all of the boys and thanked them.
