Trump says unsure if Tillerson will remain secretary of state

Trump not sure if Tillerson will stary for the duration

U.S. President Donald Trump said he was unsure whether his top diplomat, Rex Tillerson, would remain in his post for the rest of Trump's term in the White House and was "not happy" that some State Department staff were not supporting his agenda.

In an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News late Thursday, Trump attacked the department under Tillerson, the secretary of state, and said he alone determines U.S. foreign policy.

"The one that matters is me," Trump said. "I'm the only one that matters because, when it comes to it, that's what the policy is going to be."

With 'America First,' Trump mutes U.S. voice on human rights in Asia

Trump Asia trip ignores human rights violations

As Trump prepares to depart on his first Asia tour, which will bring him face-to-face with a number of leaders with poor human rights records, his administration has been taking a more muted approach than his predecessor to such concerns, said current and former U.S. officials, rights activists and diplomats.

In addition to the situation in Cambodia, they cite what they see as a slow, overly cautious response to Myanmar’s Rohingya crisis, Trump’s failure to publicly call out autocratic leaders he meets over rights abuses, an eagerness to engage with the Philippines’ controversial president, Rodrigo Duterte, and a less vocal approach to human rights in China.

Bowe Bergdahl avoids prison time, will receive dishonorable discharge, judge rules

Bowe Bergdahl gets no prison time; gets dishonorable dischargeSgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier who deserted his Afghanistan outpost and was then held captive in brutal conditions for five years, received no prison time but was reduced in rank to private and will be dishonorably discharged from the army, a military judge ruled Friday.

In announcing the punishment the military judge, Col. Jeffery Nance, rejected a prosecutor’s recommendation to sentence Bergdahl to 14 years confinement. Nance did not elaborate on his decision before dismissing the court. Defense attorneys had argued against prison time, saying the soldier already suffered enough while in Taliban hands.

Bergdahl did not react as the sentence was read. He stood flanked by defense lawyers as the judge read sentence and left the courtroom with his attorneys.

Heart stents may be useless for many in treating chest pain, according to researchers

Heart stents may be useless for chest pains

New research suggests a popular treatment for chest pain may be useless for many people, The New York Times reported today.

Citing a Wednesday study published in The Lancet, the Times wrote that new research raised "questions about whether [heart] stents should be used so often — or at all — to treat chest pain."

Heart stents are small tubes, generally made from metal or fabric, that are used to restore blood flow through narrow or blocked arteries. They became popular in the 1990s as an alternative to the more invasive option of bypass surgery, according to the Times.
