Nonpartisan investigators said management failures by the Obama administration set the stage for the computer woes that paralyzed the president's new health care program last fall. After a months-long investigation, the Government Accountability Office found that the administration lacked "effective planning or oversight practices" for the development of HealthCare.gov, the online portal to coverage for millions of uninsured Americans. As a result the government incurred "significant cost increases, schedule slips, and delayed functionality," William Woods, a GAO contracting expert said in testimony prepared for a hearing Thursday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
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.

After decades in private hands, a spaceship from the classic film "2001: A Space Odyssey" will go on display for the first time to the public. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the group that presents the Oscars, purchased the spacecraft at auction Saturday for $344,000. The academy will display the ship in its museum of movie history, scheduled to open in 2017 in Los Angeles. According to the auction house, the spaceship is one of the few sets left from the 1968 film.
Suspected members of an outlawed marxist organization in Turkey have stormed an Istanbul courthouse on Tuesday and taken hostage a prosecutor who was working on the case of Berkin Elvan - a teenager who was killed during an anti-government demonstration in 2013. The kidnappers, who claim to belong to the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front, have published photos of themselves pointing a gun at the head of Mehmet Selim Kiraz, against the backdrop the organization's flag.
How did video footage of a shirtless, 18-year-old Rahm Emanuel demonstrating in the summer of 1978 in a Chicago city park during a neo-Nazi rally manage to stay buried for 36 years? No, this is not an outtake cut from the classic comedy "Blues Brothers." Thanks to the Chicago Reader, America can catch a glimpse of a bronzed, bushy-haired, generally angry-looking Emanuel as he appeared when he was taking on literal jackbooted thugs wearing swastika armbands. The scene was Marquette Park on Chicago’s southwest side on July 9, 1978 — a balmy Sunday. Dressed in real, actual brown shirts, members of the National Socialist Party of America led by founder Frank Collin had scheduled a city-approved rally at the park. A number of white supremacists gathered to hear Collin’s standard neo-Nazi racist message. But most people don't like Nazis---neo nor original. So responding with their duty to humanity a crowd of protestors showed up to bring shame to those shiny black boots. Prolific Chicago filmmaker Tom Palazzolo was on hand to document the events. He made a short film called Marquette Park II about the rally and the corresponding counter-rally. The whole film is a stunning slice of late 1970s Americana that feels relaxed and largely unedited — as if you, the viewer, are some time-traveling anthropologist.
