Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday played down criticism by Israel's defense minister of American efforts to broker peace in the Middle East, saying he wouldn't let "one set of comments" undermine his work. With his subdued reaction, Kerry appeared to be attempting to quickly move beyond the uproar that exploded Tuesday over the comments reportedly made by Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon. After harsh criticism from Washington, Yaalon issued a late-night apology. Speaking to reporters in Kuwait, Kerry said that he speaks regularly with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and said they were both "very committed" to moving forward on peace efforts. "We just can't let one set of comments undermine that effort, and I don't intend to," Kerry said. Kerry has been shuttling between Israel and the Palestinians for months, and is expected back in the region in the coming weeks to deliver his ideas on a framework for peace. The Palestinians seek the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza Strip, territories captured by Israel in 1967, for an independent state. Netanyahu wants to keep parts of the West Bank and says he will not share control of east Jerusalem, home to sensitive Muslim, Jewish and Christian religious sites.
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.
Last week, after just five days in rehab – his second trip this year – Scott Disick left the facility in San José, Costa Rica, for a night of clubbing and drinking. And now, it looks ¨like Kourtney Kardashian has finally kicked him out for good. On 21 March, Scott headed straight to Rouge and Vertigo nightclubs with his bodyguard, then on to the Sheraton hotel, where he was seen boozing. It was there he ran into KUWTK fan Camila Garaizabal, who tells heat, “He had obviously been drinking. He could barely walk.” But, that’s not all – despite being practically married to Kourtney Kardashian for eight years, Scott was flirting with fans. Disqus allows you to post comments on our site.
Riders on a New York roller coaster took the long way down Sunday after Coney Island's historic Cyclone got stuck in its track on opening day. Images and videos shared on social media showed people slowly walking down the 88-year-old wooden roller coaster. A Luna Park spokeswoman said that no one was injured in the mishap, which occurred about noon during the first run because of an "isolated mechanical issue." Spokeswoman Erica Hoffman said, "Safety is the number one priority for our guests here at Luna Park. Nobody was injured, and those on the ride were safely evacuated and will be able to come ride again for free when it is open again."
Sunday night JB and his crew knocked out some off the cuff table jams at a Miami sushi spot using nothing but chop sticks and table tops. Biebs and about 22 of his closest buddies chased their sashimi down with percussion instead of saki (though it sounds like they had that too) and treated the whole joint at Tokyo Blue to a freestyle jam sesh. After 2 songs we're told Biebs felt bad, apologized to the other patrons, and posed for pics. We're told he even dropped a $500 tip on the $1,000 tab.
Take a hike, Jason Statham — a new actor has announced that they'd like to play the villain in a future Fast and Furious installment, and it's definitely not a name that anyone saw coming. Helen Mirren told Yahoo! Movies, "My great ambition is to be in a Fast and Furious movie. My claim to fame is I always do my own driving — I was on Top Gear, and I did my lap in a very good time. I keep putting it out there, and they never ask me. I’ll be in Fast and Furious 8."
