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.

According to aid groups working in the area, an airstrike on a displaced persons camp in Yemen has left at least 29 people dead and dozens wounded, including women and children. Al Mazraq camp for internally displaced people (IDPs) in the Hajj governorate, near the border town of Haradh in western Yemen, houses around 5,000 people who have fled other areas of insecurity. A Saudi-led coalition is targeting Shiite rebels and their allies in Yemen in a campaign of airstrikes that began last week.
The Swedish masters behind those DIY bed frames and bar stools have a new addition to their collection, but not one you'll find in IKEA catalogs. The "Better Shelter" is a weatherproof and sustainable refugee home developed in partnership between the IKEA Foundation and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). It looks nothing like its shoddy tarp-covered counterparts that have become the norm in refugee camps. Each 188-square-foot shelter can accommodate five people and comes equipped with a solar panel that powers an internal lamp and cellphone charger. Instead of canvas lining, Better Shelter's panels are made of a custom-designed plastic foam that provides thermal insulation.
Selfie sticks have officially been banned from concert fun. Coachella was the first to nix the accessory, announcing that no poles or extenders would be allowed. You can still bring your GoPro to record hours of footage that you'll never get around to editing, but there's basically no point, since all you'll be able to see is the back of people's heads. Lollapalooza also decided to jump on the anti-selfie stick bandwagon, limiting tripods, stands, sticks, and other equipment to professional photographers only.
