  • Russia's new Armata tank makes debut in parade rehearsal

    Russia's new Armata tank appeared in public for the first time Monday, rumbling down a broad Moscow avenue on its way to Red Square for the final rehearsal of the Victory Day parade.

  • Met Gala 2015: Rihanna 'BANNED' Rita Ora From Her After Party?

    The reported fiery feud between Rihanna and Rita Ora was still burning at high temperatures at the Met Gala, as it's claimed that RiRi refused to invite Reets to her after-party at Up & Down nightclub because the two 'can't stand each other'. The two gorgeous singers are said to have more beef than a large mixed grill at Wetherspoons, with their similar music and fashion styles, and the fact that RiRi is now friends with Rita's former BFF Cara Delevingne apparently contributing towards their supposed feud. Doesn't help that both Rihanna, 27, and Rita, 24, are signed to Roc Nation.

  • Contract battle brewing over $14M Blackbeard 'treasure'

    Nearly 300 years after the pirate Blackbeard's flagship sank off the North Carolina coast, a shipwreck-hunting company and the state are battling over treasure linked to the vessel — but they're fighting with legal filings, not cutlasses, and the treasure is $14 million in disputed revenue and contract violations. The Florida-based company, Intersal Inc., found little loot when it discovered the Queen Anne's Revenge almost 20 years ago, but it eventually gained a contract for rights to photos and videos of the wreck and of the recovery, study and preservation of its historic artifacts.

  • 'Anglo-Saxon' world would rip apart Europe after a Grexit, says Juncker

    The president of the European Commission has risked angering Britain after comments warning that the "Anglo-Saxon world" would seek to dismantle the European project if Greece was ever allowed to leave the single currency. Speaking to an audience at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium, Jean-Claude Juncker said a "Grexit" would expose the EU to huge risk, leaving the euro prey to forces who "would do everything to try to decompose" what remained of the monetary union. “Grexit is not an option," said Mr Juncker.

  • Britain's new princess can't expect fairy-tale life

    William and Kate's new daughter is the first British princess who won't face royal discrimination because she's a girl, but that doesn't mean her life will be a fairy tale. Thanks to a change in the centuries-old rules of royal succession, if Princess Charlotte has a younger brother, he won't overtake her in line to the throne. The experience of Kate — and, even more, of the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana — suggests the level of interest the princess can expect.

  • Climbers leave Everest after Sherpas refuse to rebuild route

    Climbers who stayed in villages close to the Everest base camp are packing their gear and leaving the mountain because Sherpa guides have refused to rebuild a climbing route destroyed by the earthquake-triggered avalanche, mountaineering officials said Tuesday. Gyanendra Shrestha, an official at Nepal's Mountaineering Department, said some of the climbers had stayed in the mountain villages to help the Sherpas and their families who had their homes damaged by the April 25 earthquake. The government has not formally canceled the climbing season and climbing permits are valid until the end of May, but the Sherpas have said they would not rebuild the climbing route because of safety and time reasons.
