#5 Ash cloud from Hawaii volcano sparks aviation red alert

An ash plume rises from the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island on May 15, 2018, in Volcano, Hawaii. The U.S. Geological Survey said a recent lowering of the lava lake at the volcano's Halemaumau crater 'has raised the potential for explosive eruptions' at the volcano.

#6 U.S.Twitter Users Pan Ted Cruz After He Tweets ‘Prayers’ To Santa Fe School Shooting VictimsReport: Trump Jr. met Gulf states envoy offering election helpTrump Jr. met Gulf princes’ emissary in 2016 who offered campaign help

After Friday’s school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, a lot of people are letting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) know that they prefer action to his “prayers.”

The NRA-funded politician immediately offered standard moral support (but, of course, not solutions) via Twitter after a gunman attacked a Texas high school, killing 10 people.

Cruz may have thought he was doing his duty, but a lot of people let him know his response was sorely lacking (in occasionally foul-mouthed fashion).

One commenter recalled Cruz’s famous “machine-gun bacon” ad.

Others referenced the generous contributions Cruz has received from the NRA.

#7 As Israel Celebrates Dream of Independence, Many See Nightmare Taking Shape

JERUSALEM — When Israel declared its independence in 1948, President Harry Truman rushed to recognize it. He took just 11 minutes, and Israelis, about to go to war to defend their infant state, were euphoric.

Seventy years to the day — and nearly as long since Israel declared the holy city of Jerusalem its “eternal capital” — the United States will formally open its embassy on a hilltop here two miles south of the Western Wall.

The embassy’s move from Tel Aviv and President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — reversing decades of American foreign policy — comes at a moment so fraught with both pride and peril that Israelis seem not to know what to feel.

#8 Iraq’s shock election result may be turning point for Iran

The unexpectedly poor showing of Haider al-Abadi, Iraq’s prime minister, in parliamentary elections has dealt a blow to US influence in the country. It was a poor return for American backing for the Baghdad government’s drive to extirpate Islamic State and regain lost territory.

But the bigger loser may be Iran, whose allies in Iraq’s Shia militias known as the Popular Mobilisation Forces were pushed into second place by Moqtada al-Sadr, the veteran nationalist. Put simply, Sadr believes Iraqis should run Iraqi affairs – not Washington, not Tehran and not their proxies.

The pressing question now, for Iraqis and the wider Arab world, is whether the election marks the high watermark of Iranian influence that has grown steadily across the region since the 2003 US invasion. Recent events have blown large holes in the prevailing narrative of an inexorable Iranian advance. In short, have we reached “peak Iran”?

Evidence the tide may be turning emerged last week after Donald Trump, in effect, tore up the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and reimposed sweeping sanctions.

Tehran’s fractured leadership seemed caught off-guard by the full force of the US president’s denunciation. It has failed so far to articulate a clear response.

#10 BusinessGoogle says India anti-trust ruling could cause ‘irreparable’ harm: documentBuzzfeed: Campaigning in 2016, Trump was negotiating for Trump Tower MoscowTrump acknowledges reimbursement to Michael Cohen for Stormy Daniels

By Aditya Kalra and Aditi Shah

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc's Google has said an Indian antitrust ruling that found it was guilty of search bias could cause "irreparable" harm and reputational loss to the company, according to a legal document reviewed by Reuters.

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) in February fined Google $20 million for abusing its position in online web search and also slammed the company for preventing its partners from using competing search services.

After the ruling, Google had said the verdict raised only "narrow concerns", but in its plea challenging the CCI's ruling the search giant signalled the impact could be far greater.

The order, the company said, "requires Google to change the way it conducts business in India on a lasting basis and the way it designs its search results page in India", according to a copy of its plea which was seen exclusively by Reuters.
