May 31, 2016 by legitgov

North Korean state media offers support for 'wise politician' Donald Trump | 31 May 2016 | Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, has faced an unusual amount of criticism from foreign leaders -- in large part because of his combative tone and unorthodox policy suggestions. This week, however, he found an unlikely international voice of support -- in North Korean state media [as opposed to 'corporate-owned media,' which is never added as a descriptor in US publications]. State outlet DPRK Today published an editorial on Tuesday that called the business mogul a "wise politician" and said he could be good for North Korea. "There are many positive aspects to Trump's 'inflammatory policies,'" the author of the article wrote, according to a translation from NK News.

Heartbreaking Image Foreshadows the Sun Setting on the Polar Bear Population | 26 May 2016 | Just one of the numerous species facing extinction, the polar bear is increasingly regarded as the poster animal for the damage caused by global climate change.

The Arctic is particularly affected, with warming temperatures -- increasing between two and four times faster than the rest of the planet -- leading to sea levels rising and ice caps melting...The polar bear's plight was strikingly captured by photographer Paul Nicklen, who recently immortalized one gigantic individual near Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

Family of Kate Steinle files lawsuit over deadly shooting on San Francisco pier | 27 May 2016 | Relatives of the woman shot to death on a San Francisco pier last year filed a lawsuit Friday saying the illegal border-crosser accused in the killing should have been in custody if not for a series of mistakes by city and federal workers.

Despite national outrage, San Francisco's Board of Supervisors on Tuesday upheld those protections for people in the country illegally. The sheriff at the time of the killing, Ross Mirkarimi, is named in the lawsuit, along with ICE and the Bureau of Land Management.
