The Russian Defense Ministry says it has launched a military exercise involving the launch of high-precision missiles. The war games are taking place amid the backdrop of violence in eastern Ukraine. In a statement Monday, the ministry said the maneuvers of the Western Military District will continue through Thursday and will involve the deployment of Iskander surface-to-surface missiles. It said the Iskander missiles, which are capable of hitting targets 280 kilometers away, will be airlifted by heavy transport planes to the exercise's area.
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.
Pippa Middleton had quite a successful year. The brunette beauty earned a little over $350,000 in the last 12 months with her booming business venture, PXM Enterprises.

And when Kate Middleton's sis isn't busy making paper with her business, she's writing articles for Vanity Fair and The Telegraph on a variety of topics from politics to hostess tips and even sports.

Prepare yourselves to fall in love with Taylor Swift even more. Four-year-old San Antonio resident Jalene Salinas has been battling an aggressive form of terminal brain cancer in recent months. And while her parents have worked tirelessly to check off every item from her bucket list, there was one important item that was a bit harder to accomplish: Jalene wanted to dance with T. Swift to her hit single "Shake It Off." Fast-forward to Monday evening around 6 p.m. and the Salinas family got a call they would never forget. Yes, the 25-year-old Grammy winner was ready to FaceTime with the young fan. During the 20-minute conversation, Swift said, "You look beautiful tonight, you really do. You're just as pretty as your pictures."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the speaker's podium for a closely-watched Iran speech to Congress on Tuesday and dropped references to Game of Thrones, Robert Frost, Google, YouTube and Twitter. At one point, Netanyahu dropped a casual gem of a Game of Thrones reference when warning of the danger posed by militant Islam, whether it comes at the hands of the jihadis of the Islamic State or in the nuclear ambitions of the Islamic Republic — otherwise known as Iran. While also discussing Iran nuclear talks, Netanyahu said, "This is a bad deal. It's a very bad deal. We're better off without it." Rather, the Israeli prime minister called for a deal that further restricted Iran's nuclear program for a longer period of time.
