Trump: “Mission Accomplished”
Opinion on air strikes made in Syria in an attempt to prevent the state from using warfare against its own people remains divided – but one person who is clear on such matters is US President Donald Trump, who declared ‘mission accomplished’ after strikes impacted. What happens from here is not quite clear – though the US, UK and France are steadfast on the decision they made.

Tesla’s Robot Retirement
It may only be for a few days, but Elon Musk’s Tesla Model 3 is shutting down its robotic production line amid what the CEO has referred to as ‘hell’ along the developmental path. Tesla are hopeful to turn a profit by the fourth quarter of 2018 – but with news that they are not rolling as many cars off the line as they projected they would be, some are sceptical as to where this may all be heading.

Arsene Wenger to Leave Arsenal
After two decades as manager of Arsenal Football Club, Wenger has confirmed that this season will be his last. 22 years behind a top flight team really isn’t bad going at all – and while the manager may have had his critics over the years, there’s no doubting that his managerial style has helped the evolving team keep its nerve as one of the biggest Premier League clubs around.

Avicii Dies – Aged 28
Regular chart visitor and pioneering Swedish DJ Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, has confirmed to have died at the age of 28. His passing comes confirmed from his representative, and at the time of writing, his cause of death remains unknown. The star, perhaps best known for his hits Hey Brother and Wake Me Up, had quit touring two years ago as result of appendix and gall bladder problems. It’s not yet clear if there is a connection, and his representative has asked that his family’s privacy be respected.
