NASA has ordered up urgent spacewalking repairs at the International Space Station.
On Tuesday, two astronauts will venture out to replace a data relay box that broke over the weekend. The job falls to the two Americans on board: commander Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer.
The failed unit was installed not quite two months ago. It is one of two that control the station's radiators and solar panels, among other critical systems.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says his quest this year to visit every state he hadn't before is about building relationships, not politics.
The 33-year-old billionaire wrote in a Facebook post that some users have asked if the trip means he's running for public office. Zuckerberg says he's not running for anything. Instead, he says the visits around the country are in order "to get a broader perspective."
He said Facebook is looking to connect users beyond people they already know, and he wrote that it may be important that the platform connects users to "people you should know." He describes those as people outside a user's social circle who he says "provide a new source of support and inspiration."
Facebook is exploring models for building those connections, Zuckerberg said.
Turkey summoned the American ambassador on Monday to protest what it called "aggressive and unprofessional actions" by American security personnel against Turkish bodyguards during a violent incident last week in Washington. The U.S. ambassador told Turkey's government its guards violated U.S. laws, a senior U.S. official said.
Turkey's action appeared to represent retaliation for the forceful U.S. criticism of the Turkish guards' behavior in the American capital, where they accompanied President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on his visit. The U.S. summoned Turkey's U.S. ambassador last week after the Turkish security officers were seen hitting and kicking protesters outside the Turkish ambassador's residence; one video shared on social media even showed Erdogan watching the melee.
Turkey didn't specify the actions by U.S. security officials it deemed inappropriate. Video from the scene had showed U.S. police struggling to protect protesters, and two Turkish bodyguards were briefly detained after the incident. They were then set free and returned to Turkey.

The young man stabbed and killed in a random attack on the University of Maryland campus Saturday "could make friends no matter what group he was around," his father remembered.
Richard Collins III was a competitor and athlete. "He loved lacrosse and soccer. He was a runner," said his father, Richard Collins Jr.
Collins had just been commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army, and "he prided himself on his time and in his ROTC unit on being the top runner in his PTs," remembered his father. "He even won a certificate for being the best."

Iran's newly re-elected President Hassan Rouhani took barbed swipes at the U.S. and its ally Saudi Arabia on Monday, hitting back at both a day after President Donald Trump used his first foreign trip to the kingdom to call for further isolation of Iran.
The 68-year-old cleric, a political moderate within Iran who secured a resounding victory over a hard-line opponent, called relations with the United States "a curvy road" even as he touted the 2015 nuclear accord Iran secured with the Obama administration and other world powers as a "win-win" agreement.
A woman trying to buy a birthday card called police when she was accidentally barricaded inside a CVS store in central Florida.

Some people have all the luck.
Consider the person who dropped about 10 pounds (about $15) around 30 years ago on what was thought to be a piece of costume jewelry — it turned out to be a 26.27 carat white diamond.
The gem bought at a flea market is expected to fetch about 350,000 pounds ($454,000) when it is auctioned by Sotheby's next month.

The job of Ford's new CEO won't be easy: He will have to shore up the 114-year-old company's traditional auto business, but also invest in self-driving cars and other projects that could one day make that business obsolete.
Ford thinks Jim Hackett is up to the task. The 62-year-old former chief executive of office furniture maker Steelcase was named to the post Monday, just three days after former CEO Mark Fields told the company he wanted to retire.

President Donald Trump's two-day visit to Israel began Monday morning and there are five key issues that are expected to be the focus of his time in the country, NBC News reported.
The most recent issue to come up is the security relationship between Israel and the U.S. It was reported that the intelligence Trump discussed with Russian officials came from Israel. Though an Israeli official said the relationship is unchanged, many wonder if Trump's discussion will affect it.
Trump will be the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Western Wall, a holy site in Jerusalem. However, his administration has given conflicting statements about whether the wall is located in Israel.

A 30-foot-long humpback whale stuck in Southern California's Ventura Harbor made its way back out to the ocean Sunday morning.
The 30-foot-long whale was first spotted swimming in the harbor around 3 p.m. Saturday, said harborman George Kabris. The whale could be seen swimming into boat slips and coming right up to the edges of the docks as dozens of people watched. Kabris said there were no more signs of the animal Sunday morning.
Harbor staff, along with Coast Guard members and other groups, were working Saturday to help the whale exit the harbor, Kabris added.
Demanding Middle East leaders combat a "crisis of Islamic extremism" emanating from their homelands, President Donald Trump tried to revise his previous anti-Muslim rhetoric while recasting the fight against terrorism as a "battle between good and evil" instead of a clash between the West and Islam.
Trump's address Sunday was the centerpiece of his two-day visit to Saudi Arabia, his first stop overseas as president. During a meeting of more than 50 Arab and Muslim leaders, he sought to chart a new course for America's role in the region, one aimed squarely at eliminating terrorism, with less focus on promoting human rights and democratic reforms.

As President Donald Trump opened his keynote address in Saudi Arabia, he lavished praise on the "magnificent" kingdom and "the grandeur of this remarkable place."
Then he made clear there would be no public lecture from America on Saudi Arabia's abysmal human rights record.
"We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship," Trump declared Sunday.
