- Ukraine appeals to the West as Crimea turns to Russia
By Andrew Osborn and Alastair Macdonald SEVASTOPOL/KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's government appealed for Western help on Tuesday to stop Moscow annexing Crimea but the Black Sea peninsula, overrun by Russian troops, seemed fixed on a course that could formalize rule from Moscow within days. With their own troops in Crimea effectively prisoners in their bases, the new authorities in Kiev painted a sorry picture of the military bequeathed them by the pro-Moscow president overthrown two weeks ago. The prime minister, heading for talks at the White House and United Nations, told parliament in Kiev he wanted the United States and Britain, as guarantors of a 1994 treaty that saw Ukraine give up its Soviet nuclear weapons, to intervene both diplomatically and militarily to fend off Russian "aggression".

- SHOCK: Miley Cyrus Performed in Her Unmentionables
Today in celebrity gossip: Miley Cyrus went chaps-less during a recent performance, Elisabeth Moss did not enjoy her "awful" marriage to Fred Armisen, and Chris Evans is both ready and willing to marry you. This was a brave admission for what must have been a truly mortifying situation! But please do not jump to conclusions about Miley Cyrus' lack of inhibitions, because as Us Weekly charitably described it, "the 21-year-old singer decided to take the stage half-naked rather than disappoint her fans." See? Miley Cyrus did not want to disappoint her fans and THAT is why she opted to forego her usual modesty-preserving sequined Ace bandage wrapped around a child's melted Halloween costume and instead took the stage in a state of undress that could be described as "revealing". We've all been there and we will all be there again and again and again and quite frankly we all owe Miley Cyrus a debt of gratitude for her bravery in this situation.

By Jonathan Kaminsky OLYMPIA, Washington (Reuters) - Five detainees on hunger strike at an immigration holding center in Washington state were placed under medical observation on Tuesday, a federal agency said, while advocates insisted it was a divide-and-conquer tactic to undermine their protest.

- Dog in viral 'kegstand' photo going home to NY college student
By Caurie Putnam BROCKPORT, New York (Reuters) - Mya, the puppy whose photo showing her held upside down above a keg and drinking beer resulted in animal cruelty charges against two college students, was headed back to the off-campus home of her owner on Tuesday. A photo of the 4-month-old black Labrador doing a "kegstand" at the home of students at College at Brockport, part of State University of New York, went viral over the weekend after it was posted on a Twitter account called the SUNY Party Stories page. Two of the roommates, Shane Oliver and Robert Yates, both 20, were charged with misdemeanor torturing or injuring an animal at the multi-unit rental home across from campus. "The dog is in excellent health and going home to the owner," Dog Control Officer Kathy Beaumont said on Tuesday.
