- US sends second ship to help search for Malaysia plane
The US Navy has sent a second ship to the South China Sea to help in the desperate search for a missing Malaysian jet, officials said Monday. The naval destroyer USS Kidd has joined another American destroyer, the USS Pinckney, as Malaysian authorities announced they were doubling the size of the search area for the airliner that vanished without a trace Saturday with 239 on board. "We are continuing to assist the Malaysian government in search and rescue operations in conjunction with the disappearance of Flight 370," Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steven Warren told reporters. The US government over the weekend sent a team of investigators and experts from the FBI and the National Transportation Safety Board to help with the probe into the missing plane.

- 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.

- Prince Harry and girlfriend make it public
Prince Harry and his long-term girlfriend Cressida Bonas have finally made their romance official with two very public outings in three days after spending months trying to avoid being pictured together. Public appearances by the royals are carefully choreographed and this weekend's activities suggest the relationship between Harry and Bonas, 25, is now official. Harry, the youngest son of heir-to-the throne Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, recently quit flying army helicopters for a desk job organising commemorative military events in London. Speculation is mounting that he is ready to settle down -- just like his brother William, the second-in-line to the throne who married Kate Middleton in 2011 and had his first child, Prince George, last July.
