Trump softens rhetoric on potential Syria strike
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has called her cabinet back from Easter break early for an emergency meeting on Thursday afternoon. Russia, which backs Mr Assad , has softened its initial threats to retaliate against USA ships and bases in event of an attack.

The Gmail overhaul, apart from a complete redesign, will also pack a handful of modern features you usually find on third-party clients.

What is also unclear at this point is whether the feature will work with other email accounts or only for emails sent to other Gmail users.

However, there are guesses to be made, as Google has recently launched a new design for Google Calendar with clearer design, glossy colors, and lovely icons. "Most importantly it's not a dumbed down version of Search, it's a search version that meets the needs of people and the devices and connections they are on", says Mich Atagama, head of communications and public affairs for Google SA.
