5 Surprising Ways to Get Most Value Out of Your Grill

Top Merkel aide rejects Trump's call to renegotiate global climate deal

The head of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office on Friday dismissed U.S. President Donald Trump's call to renegotiate a landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change.

Fearing Trump's next move, liberals urge Supreme Court conservative Kennedy to stay

By Lawrence Hurley and Andrew Chung WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Liberal activists are urging U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, a conservative with whom they often disagree, to put off any thought of retirement, fearing President Donald Trump would replace him with a jurist further to the right.

It also shows how big the stakes are for both sides in any decision that Kennedy, who...
