Barack Obama: "Number six, alongside our outstanding military work, we have to draw upon the strength of our diplomacy. Terrorists would love to see us walk away from the type of work that builds international coalitions, and ends conflicts, and stops the spread of deadly weapons. It would make life easier for them; it would be a tragic mistake for us.
"Just think about what we’ve done these last eight years without firing a shot. We’ve rolled back Iran’s nuclear program. That’s not just my assessment, that’s the assessment of Israeli intelligence, even though they were opposed to the deal. We’ve secured nuclear materials around the globe, reducing the risk that they fall into the hands of terrorists. We’ve eliminated Syria’s declared chemical weapons program. All of these steps have helped keep us safe and helped keep our troops safe. Those are the result of diplomacy. And sustained diplomatic efforts, no matter how frustrating or difficult they sometimes appear, are going to be required to resolve the conflicts roiling the in Middle East, from Yemen, to Syria, to Israel and Palestine. And if we don’t have strong efforts there, the more you will be called upon to clean up after the failure of diplomacy.
"Similarly, any long-term strategy to reduce the threat of terrorism depends on investments that strengthen some of these fragile societies. Our generals, our commanders understand this. This is not charity. It’s fundamental to our national security. A dollar spent on development is worth a lot more than a dollar spent fighting a war. (Applause.)

Mark Zuckerberg did not want to look small when faced with a grilling from US politicians regarding data sharing on Facebook .
The 5'7" CEO took a leaf out of Simon Cowell's book and brought his own booster seat to appear taller as he was quizzed by the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees.
At the hearing Zuckerberg pledged that Facebook will investigate "tens of thousands" of apps to discover if any other companies have accessed data in a similar way to Cambridge Analytica (CA).
The social network says it is in the process of letting up to 87 million users know that their information may have been accessed by CA, and in a packed room on Capitol Hill, Zuckerberg repeated his admission that the company "didn't do enough" to stop its tools "being used for harm".
Seconds after saying he "had to be careful", BBC presenter Mike Bushell was left wishing he had followed his own advice.
The sports broadcaster was making his way into a swimming pool to interview five of England's Commonwealth Games medalists.
But he missed the step and slipped, leaving the swimmers in hysterics.
"I'm going to have to jump into the water," he had said.
"I'm going to have to be careful because I've got a sound pack on."
England's gold medalists Sarah Vasey and Adam Peaty burst out laughing as Bushell added: "I didn't see the step.

A convention for 'furry' turned X-rated when two visitors were filmed gyrating against each other in a hotel lobby in broad daylight.
This weekend saw the 14th annual Furry Weekend at Atlanta in Georgia.
A 'furry' is someone who dresses up as animal characters with human characteristics.
Furries can pay more than £2,000 for their costume.
One of the visitors at the convention, who goes by 'Nikki The Husky' on Twitter, filmed two people making sex motions with each other in the lobby of the hotel in Atlanta.
People walk past apparently nonplussed about the unusual activity happening metres from them.
CNN’s Leila Santiago, covering the immigrant “caravan” moving through Mexico and toward the United States in recent weeks, asked the travelers where they intended to go on Monday. All who answered indicated that they would go to the United States to seek asylum.
Santiago first claimed that many of the migrants would stay in Mexico, and she asked those on the bus where they would go.
“They are fleeing violence from gangs that are controlling the areas in Honduras, Guatemala, El Savador, where they live,” she said. “Many of them will stay in Mexico.”
They did not back up her claim.
“Who will stay in Mexico?” she asked the bus in Spanish.
None of the migrants raised their hands.
“Who will go to the United States?” Santiago inquired immediately after.
Most of the bus raised their hands, while others did not answer.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis was arrested Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport for making a bomb threat, a police spokesperson confirmed Monday to USA TODAY Sports.
Los Angeles Airport Police spokesperson Rob Pedregon said Monday that Davis and a female companion were checking in at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter Sunday morning when the ticket agent asked them if they had a list of unapproved items like aerosols, knives or explosives — a standard procedure before checking in to a flight.
Davis then turned to the companion and, according to Pedregon, made "a statement in the area of, 'Yeah, did you pack the explosives?'"
Airport police were alerted to the 24-year-old's comments, and he was subsequently arrested on a misdemeanor charge of making a bomb threat. Davis was then booked into a Los Angeles jail shortly after noon Sunday and released within the hour on $15,000 bail, according to online inmate records.
Davis is due to appear in court May 3, according to the online records.
A horse trailer secretly shuttling about 18 ILLEGAL immigrants through Campo on Interstate 8 overturned Saturday, injuring several, authorities said.
The crash occurred in the westbound freeway lanes west of Crestwood Road about 11:50 a.m.
A woman who was driving behind the Ford F-250 in the fast lane told investigators that the two-axle, four-horse trailer being hauled by the pickup began to fishtail, according to the California Highway Patrol. The pickup driver was unable to maintain control and drifted off the freeway. The trailer then separated from the truck and tipped onto its right side, said CHP Officer Travis Garrow.
Several people scrambled from the trailer and many ran away. No horses were inside.
CHP called the Border Patrol, and after a search of the area authorities were able to round up most, if not all, involved, said Border Patrol Agent Eduardo Olmos. CHP and Cal Fire reported 18 individuals, while Border Patrol reported 19; the reason for the discrepancy was unclear.
Border Patrol said the driver had not yet been identified and it was unclear if he or she was in custody.
Two women were transported by air ambulance and four men by ground ambulance to hospitals. Others were treated at the scene and arrested. The injuries were described as minor to moderate.
Olmos said it was not yet known where the people made illegal entry into the United States. A breakdown of their nationalities was not immediately available.
Police have lifted a lockdown at Dolphin Mall in Sweetwater after there were multiple reports of shots being fired around 9 p.m. Saturday.
Officials say it's very possible that those reports were untrue and that "all there was was a fight."
"We still don't know what area of the mall it happened in," Sweetwater Mayor Orlando Lopez told the Miami Herald at around 9:45 p.m.

A teenager tried as an adult under Alabama's accomplice liability law was sentenced to 65 years in prison Thursday after rejecting an earlier plea deal that recommended 25 years.
On Thursday, Judge Sibley Reynolds of Alabama's 19th Judicial Circuit Court handed down three sentences that Smith will serve back to back: 30 years for murder, 15 years for burglary and 10 years each for two theft convictions. Smith smiled and laughed through the sentencing.
Formally, China’s copyright laws have been in line with those of the United States and other developed countries since China became a signatory to the Berne Convention in 1992 and the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) in 2001. But it’s hardly news that you can get a pirated copy of pretty much any movie, CD, or book in China with only a modicum of effort. Years ago you could find bootleg DVDs outside nearly every supermarket and mall in the country. Nowadays it’s more difficult to find such sellers, but not because of China’s efforts to curtail counterfeit goods; it’s because the market has moved to the Internet.
But as China’s homegrown media companies like Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent continue to pay serious money for the rights to stream tv shows, movies, and other copyrighted material, more lawsuits are being filed in Chinese courts seeking to enforce China’s copyright law, and more official efforts are underway to reduce the amount of pirated material available in China. A (slightly) more subtle form of copyright infringement is still thriving, however: creative works that coopt key elements from copyrighted material, from storylines to characters to music cues and beyond. Television shows in China will make a few slight changes to a copyrighted format and then insist it is an entirely new creation, as with The Voice of China last year. It’s not always clearly a copyright dodge, either; the popular Chinese singing competition I Am a Singer (我是歌手) is an official licensee of a copyrighted Korean format – or was, until the title and format were altered recently in the midst of China’s unofficial restrictions on Korean content. Presumably it is no longer considered a Korean-content show, which as a side benefit probably means the show cannot be held liable for copyright infringement.
Chinese manufacturers have long excelled at taking the key elements of an existing product and incorporating them into a “new” product. So it’s no surprise that the same thing happens in entertainment. It’s been happening for decades with the most famous story in China, the 16th century novel “Journey to the West,” which has been adapted into a movie or tv series dozens of times. We complain in America about the overwhelming number of sequels and superhero movies, but at least most of them have a different plot. This would be like having one of our greatest stories – you know, like Point Break – remade multiple times in different formats every year for forty years.
Miami police say a man intentionally crashed his car into the utility room of a Liberty City police substation Friday morning, prompting a bomb scare after a safe was found inside the vehicle.
After investigating for about three hours, the bomb squad determined that there was no threat inside the older model Chevrolet Impala that careened through a gate behind the North District Sub Station at 1000 NW 62nd Street and Northwest 10th Avenue.
The crash occurred at around 7 a.m. Authorities now believe the driver, 36-year-old Giftson Cherefant, intentionally drove through the gate and smashed into the back of the station, breaching a utility room.

This is the moment a motorcyclist tried to cross a tiny footbridge for pedestrians - and face-planted into an open sewer.
Onlookers apparently tried to warn the rider not to cross the plank, but after considering his options he decided to press ahead.
But unsurprisingly he couldn't control the huge bike on the 1ft wide bridge and toppled headfirst into the cesspool in India.
This happened at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 4, according to the Montreal Gazette.
The truck was traveling along Highway 40 with its trailer completely raised when it smashed into a pedestrian bridge.
The contents of the trailer were scattered all over the road, and pieces of the trailer became embedded in the bridge.
The highway was closed as a result, and remained partially closed almost 20 hours later. Nobody was injured.
He was trying to look like a badass in front of a woman and well... the rest is history.
