Facebook is reportedly in talks with solar drone maker Titan Aerospace to buy the company for $60 million. The move could help Facebook, one of the major backers of Internet.org, achieve one of the initiative's goals: to bring internet connectivity to the world. Titan's atmospheric drones are solar-powered and can run for up to five years without landing. The deal, first reported in TechCrunch, means that Facebook could use the "atmospheric satellites" - a distinction that suggests they would fly above FAA-regulated space, to increase regional connectivity. The drones could also be used for weather monitoring or earth imaging.
Russia Russian serviceman Fyodor Zhuravlyov left home in a rush. He only managed to scrawl a phone number and a few words to his wife on a sheet of paper. "I'm away on a work trip," the note said, according to a family friend. Zhuravlyov's wife never saw him again. Late last week the military contacted the family to say that he was killed in combat on Thursday, Nov. 19. The 27-year-old now joins the growing ranks of the Russian army's unexplained dead, victims of the Kremlin's military engagements inside Russia and, in the past few years, beyond its borders too that are so secretive nobody will officially acknowledge where the deaths have occurred.
Spike Lee appeared a the The Late Show Tuesday where he told Stephen Colbert, sex strike by women could help prevent sexual harassment on US college campuses.

More than 10% of respondents said they had been physically assaulted or threatened with physical assault by men in pursuit of sex. Lee was discussing his new film Chi-Raq with Colbert. Based on Lysistrata, a satire by Aristophanes, the film follows a group of women on the south side of Chicago who decide to fight gun crime by withholding sex from their men. In real life, the film has reportedly inspired a group of 37 women to follow suit.
