Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser of U.S. President Donald Trump, from left, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde and German Chancellor Angela Merkel chat after a panel at the W20 Summit in Berlin on Tuesday.
The conference aims at building support for investment in women’s economic empowerment programs. But during a panel discussion that also included her host, Merkel, Trump was jeered by members of the audience. On her first official overseas trip as an adviser to the president, Trump was thrust into a more familiar role — defending her father’s behavior to skeptical foreigners.

A fluid-filled incubation system mimics a mother’s womb, in hopes of one day improving survival of extremely premature babies. In animal testing, fetal lambs grew for up to four weeks inside a bag filled with a substitute for amniotic fluid, while the heart pumped blood into a machine attached to the umbilical cord that supplied oxygen like a placenta normally would.

Protesters block a highway in Caracas, Venezuela, on Monday. Across the country, people sprawled in lawn chairs, worked on math homework and played cards on main roads as part of a sit-in against the government.
In Caracas, the capital, thousands expressed their disgust with the increasingly embattled socialist administration of President Nicolas Maduro. They turned the road into a kind of public plaza, with protesters laying out picnics, reading books and reclining under umbrellas they brought to protect them from the blazing Caribbean sun. Juan Carlos Bautista, 48, passed the afternoon playing dominos. “We want to be free. I’m here fighting for my children and my children’s children,” he said.
The protest movement is entering its fourth week — and has become increasingly deadly. On Sunday, a 21st death was linked to the unrest that began almost a month ago over the Supreme Court’s decision to gut the opposition-controlled congress of its powers. The current unrest is the most intense the economically struggling country has seen since two months of anti-government protests in 2014 that left dozens dead.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, right, rides with President Herbert Hoover on their way to the U.S. Capitol for Roosevelt’s inauguration as the 32nd president in 1933. FDR’s productive start to his first term set the standard for judging an American president’s first 100 days — arguably an impossibly high standard.

Wichita State archaeologist and anthropologist Donald Blakeslee points out man-made depressions on a boulder in what would have been the lost city of Etzanoa, a home to ancestors of the Wichita tribe. Researchers like Blakeslee believe that the area was a sprawling city of 20,000 people when it was first discovered by Spanish Explorers in the early 17th century. The area sits along the banks of the Walnut River just outside Arkansas City. (Travis Heying/Wichita (Kan.) Eagle/TNS)

Bernard Youngblood, Wayne County Register of Deeds, displays an old deed registry book in Detroit last week. Youngblood recounted a case in his office, when a man came to file a quitclaim deed transferring ownership on a property. A clerk recognized the address and went to a co-worker with a question. “Are you selling your house to that guy?” she asked. She wasn’t. Youngblood said he faked a computer outage, leaving the would-be fraudster waiting at the counter. It bought enough time to get deputies to respond and make an arrest.

Workers prepare voting booths at a polling station in Lyon, France, on Saturday. The first of two rounds in the country’s presidential election will take place Sunday.
Early voting began overseas Saturday in the most nail-biting election in generations, and the 11 candidates seeking to become the country’s next president silenced their campaigns as required to give voters a period of reflection.
Opinion polls pointed to a tight race among the four top contenders vying to get into the May 7 presidential runoff that will decide who becomes France’s next head of state. But the polls also said that decision was largely in the hands of the one-in-three French voters who were still undecided.
Security was tight — the government mobilized more than 50,000 police and gendarmes to protect 70,000 polling stations, with an additional 7,000 soldiers on patrol.

Ilya and Nohcho, gay men from Chechnya who use pseudonyms for safety, stay in a safe house in Moscow. The targeted, collective trapping and torturing of gays that began this month in Chechnya is a new, dark turn in the region’s long history of rights abuses. “I don’t blame him,” Nohcho said of the friend who informed on him after being tortured. “We are not heroes. We’re just gay guys.”

Anna-Spring Doerfler and Leonard Masuzumi prepare for ice fishing tours along the Dettah ice road in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, in January. Canada's ice roads in the Northwest, where many communities are reachable only by barge and air most of the year, have been freezing later and melting earlier, drastically reducing the precious window of time isolated residents rely on to restock a year's worth of vital supplies.

Two storefronts in the Lower East Side neighborhood of New York are filled with faux marijuana as a promotion for the so-called “Weed Week” programming on the Viceland television channel. The celebration of all things marijuana culminates on April 20, known as 420 in cannabis culture, but the domestic industry remains under a cloud amid worries that President Donald Trump’s administration may soon move to enforce the federal ban against the drug.
