Forget the gray, green and brown dinosaurs in the "Jurassic Park" movies. Paleontologist Jack Horner wants to transport people back in time to see a feathered Tyrannosaurus rex colored bright red and a blue triceratops with red fringe similar to a rooster's comb.
Horner, who consulted with director Steven Spielberg on the "Jurassic Park" films, is developing a three-dimensional hologram exhibit that will showcase the latest theories on what dinosaurs looked like. He is working with entertainment company Base Hologram to create an exhibit that will let people feel as though they're on an archaeological dig, inside a laboratory and surrounded by dinosaurs in the wild.
"I'm always trying to figure out a good way to get the science of paleontology across to the general public," Horner said in a recent interview with The Associated Press.
Former President George H.W. Bush has arrived at the family's Kennebunkport compound on the Maine coast.
Bush spokesman Jim McGrath sent a tweet Sunday evening to confirm the 93-year-old former president had arrived.
McGrath shared a picture of 41st president waving to well wishers in Dock Square on his arrival.
A man intentionally rammed a vehicle into a North Carolina restaurant busy serving Sunday lunch, killing his daughter and another person and injuring several others, authorities said.
Bessemer City Police said in a statement that preliminary evidence indicates Roger Self, 62, purposely smashed his way into the Surf and Turf Lodge where reports say families were eating a relaxed midday meal.
Self was arrested after the vehicle had slammed its way inside the steak and seafood restaurant in Bessemer City. Jail records show he's been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Facing the risk of a mutually harmful trade war, the world's two biggest economies have put their differences on hold. Yet it's far from clear that a fragile truce between the United States and China can hold.
In exchange for the United States agreeing to hold off on tariffs on up to $150 billion in Chinese goods, Beijing agreed over the weekend to "substantially reduce" America's huge trade deficit with China. Beijing made no specific commitment, though.

A New Jersey police officer saved a fawn by performing an emergency C-section after the baby deer’s mother was hit by a car.
Animal control officer Robert Lagonera was called to the scene of a doe that had just been hit by a vehicle around 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, the Washington Township Police Department said in a Facebook post.

“Washington Township police Officer Vernon took the initiative and performed an emergency C-section on the deceased doe saving one of the two fawn inside,” wrote on the department’s page.

Donald Trump Jr. met during the 2016 campaign with a private military contractor and an adviser to Middle Eastern leaders, both of whom have since become a focus of investigators working for special counsel Robert Mueller, a lawyer for President Donald Trump's eldest son said Saturday.
Erik Prince, an informal adviser to the Trump campaign and former head of Blackwater, and George Nader, a veteran operative who has advised the United Arab Emirates and helped American contractors secure business in the Middle East, met with Trump Jr. at Trump Tower to discuss a social media proposal, lawyer Alan Futerfas said in a statement.
"They pitched Mr. Trump Jr. on a social media platform or marketing strategy. He was not interested and that was the end of it," Futerfas said.
The principal of a New Jersey high school has apologized for what he called “insensitive” language on tickets for the upcoming senior prom. The Courier Post reported
the Cherry Hill High School East senior prom tickets urged students to “party like it’s 1776” during the event at Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center. Principal Dennis Perry said in an apologetic letter to the community posted on his Twitter account Friday that it was insensitive and irresponsible not to appreciate that not all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776.”

A substitute teacher who had a "lust for life," a Pakistani exchange student who aspired to work in civil service, and an outgoing and "really funny" student who blocked the door to try to prevent the gunman from entering the classroom are among the victims of Friday's mass shooting at a Texas high school. Seventeen-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis is being held on charges of capital murder and aggravated assault after authorities say he fatally shot 10 people and wounded at least 10 others at his high school in Santa Fe, about 30 miles southeast of Houston. Family members and friends of the eight students and two teachers fondly remembered their loved ones. They used such words as sweet, hardworking and loving.
Here are some of their stories:
Harris County Sheriff's Office
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick called Sunday for a "hardening" of the nation's school buildings in the wake of the attack by a 17-year-old student who killed 10 people at a high school near Houston.
Patrick, a Republican, blamed a "culture of violence" and said more needs to be done to keep shooters away from students, such as restricting school entrances and arming teachers.
"When you're facing someone who's an active shooter, the best way to take that shooter down is with a gun. But even better than that is four to five guns to one," he told CNN's "State of the Union."
Justify endured the most difficult race of his career and came away a step closer to becoming trainer Bob Baffert's second Triple Crown champion in four years.
The heavy 2-5 favorite jumped out to the lead, surrendered it briefly to Good Magic and roared back, holding off several hard-charging challengers to win the Preakness through a cloud of fog on a sloppy, slippery track Saturday. Justify has the chance at the Belmont Stakes in New York on June 9 to do the same thing Baffert's American Pharoah did in 2015.

When Gayatri Kaimal, a seventh-grader from Tucson, Arizona, competes in the National Geographic Bee finals this weekend, she’ll be one of the only four girls on stage, NBC News reported.
Fifty-four geography-loving fourth-to-eighth-graders have earned a spot in the televised, rapid-fire contest — winners of local competitions from each U.S. state and territory — but just four of them are girls. The gender gap has persisted since the competition started in 1989; of the 29 winners, only two have been girls.
Gayatri, 13, beat 100 other children to win this year’s Arizona Geographic Bee. She said she feels extra pressure to perform this weekend as one of the few girls to make it this far in the competition, adding, “I wish there was a little bit more representation for both genders."

Hours after the former Meghan Markle exchanged vows with Prince Harry at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, England, she emerged for the evening celebrations wearing another very meaningful piece of jewelry: a ring that belonged to Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana.
The stunning emerald-cut ring with an aquamarine stone, seen here in 1997, was one of Diana's trademark jewels.
It was yet another sweet way for Prince Harry to honor the memory of his mother in the royal wedding. Earlier during the ceremony, the Duchess of Sussex’s bridal bouquet contained forget-me-nots, which were Diana’s favorite flowers.

Criminal investigators are getting their first look at materials gathered from raids on the home and office of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer as a process to separate items subject to attorney-client privilege appears to be meeting a judge's demand that it occur speedily and efficiently.
The progress comes just days before U.S. District Judge Kimba M. Wood will preside over a fourth hearing resulting from Michael Cohen's efforts to gain influence over what potential evidence seized in the April 9 raids can be deemed subject to the privilege and blocked from the view of criminal prosecutors. Prosecutors say they are investigating possible fraud as they study Cohen's personal business dealings.
