    Top searchers at the Dutch company leading the underwater hunt for Malaysia Airlines jet MH370 say they believe the plane may have glided down rather than dived in the final moments, meaning they have been scouring the wrong patch of ocean for two years. Flight MH370 disappeared in March 2014 with 239 passengers and crew onboard en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur. Searchers led by engineering group Fugro (FUGRc.AS) have been combing an area roughly the size of Greece for two years. That search, over 120,000 square kilometers of the southern Indian Ocean off Western Australia, is expected to...

    More than a dozen Turkish navy ships are reportedly still at sea and remain unaccounted for following the botched military coup. The commander of the Turkish navy Admiral Veysel Kosele also remains missing, having been out of contact since Friday evening. It is unclear if he was part of the coup attempt or if he is being held against his will after local media reports said he was tricked into boarding one of the missing ships after being told there was a terrorist attack.

    Apparently, while serving as our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton "misplaced" $6,000,000,000 of hard-earned American Taxpayer provided funds Have any of you, by chance, seen that money? I looked everywhere for it. I even looked in the junk drawer. You know, the drawer where you put stuff you might need but don't know where else to put it. I didn't find Hillary's missing money there. Found some batteries, though. Now, $6,000,000,000 is a pretty good sum of money. Bill Clinton could buy his own rape island if he had that kind of dough. So, I think we should all look...

DNA matching didn't exist at the time, so officials had few options when it came to identifying the woman. "In the early 2000s, we worked with Natalie Murray, a forensic artist, to create a facial reconstruction of the decedent. The result showed a woman with...

    Just weeks ago, the 33-year-old with model good looks was an Instagram star, posting endless photographs of himself — some of them shirtless — jetsetting around the world, hobnobbing with celebs, training with troops and surfing and sunbaking in exotic locations.
