    • Trump's Russia scandal takes an unexpected turn

      On Friday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey delivered a classified, hour-long briefing to the Senate Intelligence Committee on the Russia scandal, and soon after, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent “formal requests to more than a dozen organizations, agencies and individuals, asking them to preserve all materials related to the committee’s investigation” into the controversy. We don’t know much about how the briefing went – committee members were tight-lipped following Comey’s presentation – though Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) tweeted late Friday that he’s “now very confident” that the committee will conduct “thorough bipartisan investigation” into Russia’s “interference and influence.” Reading

    • Amazing Video of German Fighter Jets Intercepting a 777 That Went Quiet

      A Boeing 777 was carrying passengers on India's Jet Airways from Mumbai to London this week when the pilots lost contact with air traffic controllers based in Cologne Germany. With a suddenly out-of-reach jet cruising through its airspace, Germany quickly hustled Typhoon fighter jets to intercept the airliner, as you can see in this video from the Facebook page CirrusPilot. It's pretty amazing footage, which was captured by a British Airways flight in the neighborhood. The 777 streaks across the sky solo. First one Typhoon and then a second pull up alongside the plane to make sure all is well. This plane mishap story has a happy ending. The Typhoons helped the airliner reestablish communications

    • All Of Emma Watson’s Looks From The Beauty And The Beast Press Tour (3 photos)

      It’s only T minus 25 days until we get to watch Emma Watson dazzle us on the big screen as Belle in Disney’s new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. We’ve already gotten sneak peeks of how the actress looks wearing that iconic yellow dress and—allegedly—her rose-covered fairy tale wedding gown, and while we’re admittedly obsessed with the epic costume design in the film, we’re equally excited about the prospect of seeing Watson’s personal style throughout the movie’s press tour. Given the fact that she’s been a muse for major designers and is regularly at the top of best-dressed lists for awards shows and other red carpet events, we know she’s going to serve us some seriously good looks. That said, we’re keeping track of all Emma’s fashions leading up to the film’s release on March 17th, so check back often to see her latest looks as well as what designers she’s wearing.

      (CNN)Melania Trump is beginning to forge her own path as America's first lady, assembling a team of aides and advisers. But the name of one longtime confidante, and perhaps her most trusted friend, won't be announced with a news release or statement or a new title: her sister, Ines Knauss. Knauss, Trump's older sister, lives just blocks from Trump Tower in the Trump Park Avenue property, public records confirm. She was Trump's maid of honor at her 2005 Palm Beach wedding, People magazine reported at the time. And the first lady called Knauss "an incredible woman and a friend" in her July speech at the Republican National Convention. And the sister of the famously private Slovenian-born first
