- 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! 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.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — In an age when people assume that any bit of information is just a click away, the thought that a jetliner could simply disappear over the ocean for more than two days is staggering. But Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is hardly the first reminder of how big the seas are, and of how agonizing it can be to try to find something lost in them.

- House cat in Oregon attacks baby, traps family in bedroom
(Reuters) - A rampaging, 22-pound Oregon house cat with a "history of violence" attacked a baby and trapped a family and their dog in a bedroom at their Portland home before being captured by police, authorities said on Monday. The Sunday evening incident began when the cat, a black-and-white Himalayan, scratched a 7-month-old baby in the face, according to Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sergeant Pete Simpson. The baby's father kicked the cat in the backside, which sent it into a rage, and the parents and baby, along with their dog, retreated into a bedroom as the father called police, Simpson said. Meanwhile, the cat blocked the bedroom doorway and could be heard on the 911 call screeching loudly, Simpson said.
