DEBRIS OF MISSING MALAYSIAN PLANE POTENTIALLY FOUND "French officials are investigating plane wreckage that on Wednesday washed ashore on the island of Reunion, near Madagascar, for possible links to a Malaysian airplane that vanished without a trace in March 2014. American air safety investigators say the debris found on Reunion appears to be from the same type of plane as the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 aircraft." While some officials are saying it’s too early to determine the true origin of the debris, the location of the found wreckage would support investigators' theories about what happened to missing Malaysian Flight 370.

THE FEMINIST DOCUMENTARY FROM 40 YEARS AGO THAT SHOULD BE BEHIND HILLARY'S CAMPAIGN "For only five nights in the fall of 1973, a documentary called 'Year of the Woman' played at the Fifth Avenue Cinema in Greenwich Village. Crowds lined up around the block. Arthur Schlesinger Jr., described it as 'the greatest combination of sex and politics ever seen in a film.' And then 'Year of the Woman' all but vanished for 42 years, robbing us of a movie that captures–in its raucous, weird, unmistakably ’70s style–one of the most pivotal moments in feminist history."[HuffPost]
