Billionaire Carlos Slim's America Movil said on Tuesday its board voted to sell off assets to cut its Mexico telecommunications market share below 50 percent in order to avoid tough new regulations designed to curb its long-held dominance of the sector. America Movil, which runs mobile, Internet and fixed-line businesses, said in a statement that its board of directors had decided to sell certain assets to a new company independent of America Movil. It did not specify the assets. Slim's companies are being forced to slash costs they charge other companies to complete calls on their network and share infrastructure after a new market regulator declared it dominant in the fixed-line and mobile phone markets.
An astonishingly tragic year for air travel in Southeast Asia turned worse Sunday when an AirAsia plane carrying 162 people disappeared over stormy Indonesian waters, with no word on its fate despite several hours of searching by air and sea. AirAsia Flight 8501 vanished in airspace possibly thick with dense storm clouds, strong winds and lightning on its way from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore. Searchers had to fight against heavy rain. The Malaysia-based carrier's loss comes on top of the still-unexplained disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in March and the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in July over Ukraine. At the Surabaya airport, shocked family members pored over the plane's manifest, crying and embracing when they learned the news. Nearly all the passengers and crew are Indonesians, who are frequent visitors to Singapore, particularly on holidays.

Binx's Poetic Death As observant as we all like to think we are, some of you may have missed the brilliance in this moment: when Binx dies, and Dani is crying over his dead cat body, Binx's body is actually resting on his sister Emily's grave. Sean Murray is a Mime? The actor who plays Thackery Binx, Sean Murray, did not actually provide the vocals for his character! When you see Thackery speaking in his human form, you're really hearing James Marsden's voice.
