1…………> Victory Parade: Moscow
A massive military parade was held in Moscow to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the Soviet victory in the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) against Nazi Germany in the European theater of World War II; Russia showcased many of its advanced, recently-developed weapons and displayed the might of its armed forces to the world.
From the deadly Sukhoi Su-57 stealth air superiority fighter, fitted with state-of-the-art avionics, radars, and weaponry, to the Kinzhal hypersonic missile, that has a range of over 1200 miles flying at Mach 10, to the BMPT Terminator, a tracked armored fighting vehicle armed with four anti-tank missile launchers, two 30 mm autocannons, two grenade launchers, and a coaxial 7.62 mm machine gun, to the Uran-9, an unmanned combat vehicle designed for reconnaissance and proving fire support, the rapid transformation of the Red Army to a 21th-century fighting force was praised by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“We will always be proud of the fact that the USSR did not bow down when other countries decided to surrender,” Mr.Putin said.
The president shook hands with Russian generals and greeted the WWII veterans attending the event.

Four individuals identified as Efrain Granados-Corona, aka “Chavito,” aka “Cepillo,” Emilio Rojas-Romero, Alan Romero-Granados, aka “El Flaco,” and Pedro Rojas-Romero, are charged together with Raul Romero-Granados, aka “Chicarcas,” aka “El Negro,” Isaac Lomeli-Rivera,” aka “Giro,” Julio Sainz-Flores, aka “Rogelio,” and Juan Romero-Granados, aka “Chegoya,” aka “El Guero,” who have been extradited from Mexico to the United States to face sex trafficking charges.

4…………> You Don’t Own Me: Baldness Cure
University of Manchester researcher Dr. Nathan Hawkshaw has discovered that an osteoporosis drug, WAY-316606, targets hair follicles without any side effects, and external application of the compound to a balding human scalp “may promote hair growth to the same magnitude as CsA or even better”.
“The fact that this new agent, which had never been considered in a hair-loss context, promotes human hair growth is exciting because of its translational potential,” Dr. Hawkshaw said.
“It could one day make a real difference to people who suffer from hair loss.”
It had “a dramatic stimulatory effect on human hair follicles donated by patients,” the university said in a statement.

Donald J. Trump
I am pleased to inform you that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in the air and on his way back from North Korea with the 3 wonderful gentlemen that everyone is looking so forward to meeting. They seem to be in good health. Also, good meeting with Kim Jong Un. Date & Place set.
Due to President Trump’s miraculous negotiating skills, North Korea has freed three US citizens from prison, identified as Kim Hak-song, Tony Kim and Kim Dong-chu who were able to “walk on the plane without assistance”, a development that is viewed as a goodwill gesture ahead of a historic summit between Mr Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
I had productive meetings in Pyongyang with Chairman Kim Jong-un and made progress. I’m delighted to bring home three Americans.
