By Michael Martina and Ju-min Park BEIJING/SEOUL (Reuters) - China on Thursday welcomed an apparently softer tone by the United States on the North Korean nuclear and missile crisis but stressed its opposition to a U.S. missile defence system being deployed in South Korea. Separately, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called on North Korea and other countries on Thursday to avoid behaviour or rhetoric that could increase tensions around Pyongyang's nuclear programme. Speaking at a news conference in Moscow after talks, the two leaders said they had agreed to cooperate closely to try to help defuse tensions around North Korea.

|We asked Trump voters what they think about his first 100 days – and if they have any regrets
Like the majority of people who sent Donald Trump to the White House, Lorraine Ostrowski has no regrets. While Mr Trump’s national approval rating is lower than that of any modern president, a recent Washington Post-ABC News survey found that among those who voted for him, just 2 per cent said they had made a mistake. Indeed, despite controversies ranging from Mr Trump’s Muslim travel ban, his campaign’s alleged links to Russia and the apparently often chaotic nature of his administration, when The Independent visited Macomb County, it found not a single Trump voter who wished for a do-over.

DNA from two extinct human relatives — the Neanderthals, and a mysterious branch of humanity called the Denisovans — has been detected in the ancient mud of caves, even though those caves hold no fossils of those individuals, new research shows. The finding suggests that scientists could detect such extinct lineages in places devoid of skeletal remains, the researchers said. The ancestors of modern humans once shared the world with archaic human lineages such as the Neanderthals — the closest extinct relatives of modern humans — as well as the Denisovans.

|This 7-year-old girl wrote a letter to Google and got a tech job out of it
How about this amazing little nugget to restore your faith in humanity: Chloe Bridgewater, a seven-year-old from Hereford, UK, is a big fan of technology and eventually wants to work for Google. Rather than wasting any time, she decided to send Google CEO Sundar Pichai a letter to let him know that she's planning on working there one day. She got two things in return: A lovely letter from Pichai encouraging her to follow her dreams, and a paid job testing tech products for a tech startup based in London.
"Dear Google boss," Young Bridgewater's letter begins. "May name is Chloe and when I am bigger I would like a job with Google." She goes on to explain that she's also planning on swimming in the Olympics and working at a chocolate factory, because what kid doesn't dream of that?
Her love of Google centers around its work culture, which includes kid-friendly bonuses like working from a bean bag or making your way from one floor of the company's headquarters to another via slide. After her father posted a photo of her letter online it quickly went viral, catching the attention of Kano, the built-it-yourself computer startup that crushed its crowdfunding goals back in late 2013 and has been shipping its kits ever since.
Now, the 7-year-old and her younger sister, Hollie, help Kano test new products ahead of time, giving the company feedback on what works and what doesn't. The two girls were even added as board members of Kano's product innovation board. See? The world isn't all bad.

|NASA’s Cassini survived its first Saturn dive, and delivered some mind-blowing photos
NASA delivered some fantastic news very early this morning, announcing that the Cassini spacecraft had successfully survived the first of its "Grand Finale" dives. The craft was out of radio contact for many hours as it ventured closer to the surface of Saturn than any earthly equipment had ever gone, and it shot some really stunning photos that show the planet in greater detail than we've ever seen.
Cassini's first dive sent it straight through Saturn's rings, shooting for a gap that measures roughly 1,500 miles wide which is light on debris. The craft cruised through its targeted space at speeds around 77,000 miles per hour, relative to the surface of the planet, and NASA notes that even the smallest particles could have spelled utter doom for the hardware if it was hit in the wrong spot.
"In the grandest tradition of exploration, NASA's Cassini spacecraft has once again blazed a trail, showing us new wonders and demonstrating where our curiosity can take us if we dare," Jim Green, director of the Planetary Science Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said in a statement.
The images Cassini delivered are the best photos humanity has ever had of Saturn's atmosphere, showing in detail the unique cloud formations that simply hadn't been seen previously. The photos were shot at a distance of about 1,900 miles from the planet, which might sound big, but is actually quite close when compared to most of Cassini's other photos.
Cassini's next dive will take place on May 2nd, and it will be the second of 22 total dives. So buckle up, because there's lots more awesome eye candy in store.

Venezuela said the move was a response to a Washington-backed campaign against the ruling Socialist Party that is meant to trample on the sovereignty of Venezuela, the United States' principal ideological adversary in the region.

Law enforcement officials, first responders, and agencies at all levels of government are running drills to prepare for massive nuclear and terror attacks in two of America’s most populous cities. The training comes amid heightened national concerns over the nuclear capabilities of North Korea and following a tense 2016 presidential election season in which terrorism was a frequent point of discussion by Donald Trump. Although the timing of the New York City drills —the nuclear attack simulation was to take place just west of the city in New Jersey — seem particularly topical, officials say that they were preplanned and have nothing to do with the headlines North Korea’s missile tests are producing.

|This may be Apple’s first brand new iOS device since 2015
The rumors saying that Apple is working on a Siri-based Amazon Echo rival are back, with a noted insider saying that Apple is currently finalizing the design for the unnamed product.
“Apple is currently finalizing designs for their Alexa competitor, expected to be marketed as a Siri/AirPlay device,” Sonny Dickson said on Twitter.
Dickson, who has a decent track record when leaking details about unreleased Apple products (especially iPhones) also said the upcoming Echo rival is “believed to carry some form of Beats technology, and is expected to run [an iOS variant].”
The insider did not mention anything about an actual launch date for the product, or a price.
Amazon’s Echo is currently the most popular voice-based home assistant product out there. Earlier this week, Amazon unveiled a new Echo gadget, the Echo Look that comes with a built-in camera. Amazon’s Alexa assistant, the AI brains of the Echo line of devices, is available in other non-Amazon devices as well, with more third-party companies interested in integrating the service into their products.
Google is looking to turn its Home device into an equally popular gadget, although Amazon’s lead can’t be contested for the time being.
A Time report in February said that Apple had no interest in making a device that would compete against Amazon Echo and Google Home. However, given the increased popularity of these home devices, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Apple come out with a competitive product that would offer Siri functionality at home.

|Qualcomm slams Apple in scathing new statement
The Apple vs. Qualcomm patent fight is probably the second most important new legal confrontation between tech companies this year, with the Google vs. Uber trial being far more interesting and dramatic. But you had still better be ready for the incoming spectacle. Case in point: Qualcomm on Friday issued a press release to tell everyone in the world that Apple has been a bad, bad company.
Titled Apple Continues to Improperly Interfere with Qualcomm's Agreements with Contract Manufacturers, the new statement is about Qualcomm’s revised guidance for the third quarter in light of Apple’s recent actions. Needless to say, this fight stands to have a dramatic impact on Qualcomm's performance.
Apparently, Apple told Qualcomm that “Apple is withholding payments to its contract manufacturers for the royalties those contract manufacturers owe under their licenses with Qualcomm for sales during the quarter ended March 31, 2017,” and it will continue to do so until the patent dispute is settled.
As a result, Qualcomm now expects revenue between $4.8 billion and $5.6 billion for the third quarter. Its prior guidance was between $5.3 billion and $6.1 billion. Comparatively, Qualcomm reported $6.0 billion for the third quarter of fiscal year 2016. In other words, iPhone money is really important to the chipmaker.
"Apple is improperly interfering with Qualcomm's long-standing agreements with Qualcomm's licensees," executive vice president and general counsel of Qualcomm Don Rosenberg said.
"These license agreements remain valid and enforceable. While Apple has acknowledged that payment is owed for the use of Qualcomm's valuable intellectual property, it nevertheless continues to interfere with our contracts. Apple has now unilaterally declared the contract terms unacceptable; the same terms that have applied to iPhones and cellular-enabled iPads for a decade. Apple's continued interference with Qualcomm's agreements to which Apple is not a party is wrongful and the latest step in Apple's global attack on Qualcomm. We will continue vigorously to defend our business model, and pursue our right to protect and receive fair value for our technological contributions to the industry."
Things are definitely going to get interesting...
