Donald Trump has reportedly suggested on more than one occasion that the US military should bomb hurricanes in order to disrupt them before they make landfall. According to US news website Axios, the president said in a meeting with top national security and homeland security officials about the threat of hurricanes: “I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?” **** “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it.

So when little Christian Moore, eight, saw Connor Crites alone, crying, he rushed over to make sure he was ok, holding his hand before heading off to class together. What Christian didn't know at the time, however, was that his new pal had autism. Overwhelmed with everything that was going on at Minneha Elementary School in Kansas, he struggled to take it all in. Connor says his new buddy's kindness helped him overcome his first-day nerves and the pair of LADs are now well on their way to being best friends forever. He said: "He was kind to me.

Christian saw Connor crying on their first day of school and rushed over to hold his hand. Credit: Courtney Moor

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 preview: Specs, price, release date, and more By now, everyone who spends a little time on the internet and is interested in smartphones knows there’s a new Galaxy Note flagship from Samsung coming out at some point later this year. The Galaxy Note 10 will be the tenth Galaxy Note flagship in name but will actually be the ninth device in the series, as Samsung skipped the Galaxy Note 6 naming and skipped directly to the Galaxy Note 7. However, that doesn’t mean the Galaxy Note 10 won’t bring considerable spec and feature upgrades over the Galaxy Note 9. But what specs and features can we expect to see on the Galaxy Note 10? A lot has been rumored and a lot has been leaked in the previous few months, and we’ll try to make sense of it all and try to differentiate between what’s possible and what sounds implausible in this post. We’ll keep updating the information on this page as we approach the Galaxy Note 10’s launch, so don’t forget to bookmark it in your browser
