- Mini-skirt turbulence at Japan budget airline
A Japanese budget airline has flown into rough air over its decision to outfit flight attendants in revealing mini-skirts, drawing criticism that it could invite sexual harassment. Skymark Airlines came under fire from the cabin crew's labour union, which said the super-short skirt -- with a distinctively swinging sixties look -- barely covers wearers' thighs. "We're concerned that the design of this uniform may cause problems," including sexual harassment, the Japan Federation of Cabin Attendants said in a statement late last month. "The airline is saying the uniform is meant to attract more customers, but this shows the company is treating women like a commodity," it added.

- 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!

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.
- No room for 'Nyet' in Ukraine's Crimea vote to join Russia
By Richard Balmforth KIEV (Reuters) - Sunday's vote in Ukraine's Crimea is being officially billed as a chance for the peninsula's peoples to decide fairly and freely their future - but in fact there is no room on the ballot paper for voting "Nyet" to control by Russia. According to a format of the ballot paper, published on the parliament's website, the first question will ask: "Are you in favor of the reunification of Crimea with Russia as a part of the Russian Federation?" The second asks: "Are you in favor of restoring the 1992 Constitution and the status of Crimea as a part of Ukraine?" At first glance, the second option seems to offer the prospects of the peninsula remaining within Ukraine.
