Russia has reportedly equipped its warplanes flying in Syria with air-to-air missiles for self-defense for the first time, Reuters reported on Monday, citing Russian news agencies.
The move comes one week after aRussian Su-34 fighter bomber was shot down by Turkish F-16 jets, in an incident that has heightened tensions between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Tayyip Recep Erdogan. 
The missiles, which are reportedly capable of hitting targets at a distance of up to 37 miles, will supplement the state-of-the-art S-400 missile systems Russia says it has deployed to the Russian Hemeimeem air base near Latakia, Syria — about 30 miles south of the Turkish border.

World leaders launch bid for climate breakthrough in Paris

World leaders launched an ambitious attempt on Monday to hold back the earth's rising temperatures, with French President François Hollande saying the world was at "breaking point" in the fight against global warming.

Some 150 heads of state and government, including US President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, urged each other to find common cause in two weeks of bargaining to steer the global economy away from its dependence on fossil fuels.
They arrived at United Nations climate change talks in Paris accompanied by high expectations and armed with promises to act. After decades of struggling negotiations and the failure of a summit in Copenhagen six years ago, some form of landmark agreement appears all but assured by mid-December.

Justin Theroux: 9/11 was the best thing to happen to New Yorkers

Celebrities Visit "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" - November 18, 2015
An extra on the set of HBO’s “The Leftovers” was offended by an off-handed remark Justin Theroux made about 9/11.
We’re told the hunky actor, who is married to Jennifer Aniston, was overheard saying in front of others on the show: “9/11 was the best thing that happened to NYers,” followed by a story about getting a deal on rent.
“He said at the end of the process, the landlord was so mad, they threw the keys at him,” said our tipster.
But a rep for Theroux, whose Greenwich Village apartment was profiled in the NY Times in 2003 for its eclectic décor made up of things he’d found in the trash, told us: “As a New Yorker and someone who has lived downtown for over 20 years, Justin would not make jest of 9/11.”

I Have Surrendered My Life to Jesus – Actor Sylvester Stallone

Popular American actor, Sylvester Stallone recently made a very important decision in his life. And it's not another blockbuster film. He announced that he "has surrendered his life to the Lord Jesus Christ."

Stallone made this life-changing announcement before releasing his latest ROCKY movie. However, his "public announcement" was not covered by the news media. If he had announced he was GAY, all the media, TV shows and newspapers would have given it full coverage.

Singer Sinead O'Connor attempts suicide, says 'my family betrayed me' in suicide note

Popular 90s singer Sinead O'Connor reportedly took an overdose of pills earlier today after leaving a suicide note saying her family does not care, have betrayed her so much, and blamed them for her suicide attempt. TMZ reports below...
The note, posted Sunday morning, alleges "appalling cruelty" on the part of her husband, her children and even her son's girlfriend -- and she says it all started when she had a hysterectomy in August. Sinead claims they've been keeping her babies from her, and she just couldn't take it anymore.
The 48-year-old singer wrote, "I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home. I'm at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name. I've been howling crying for weeks. And been told by them all to go f*** myself. I'm invisible. I don't matter a shred to anyone."
Sinead has four children, ranging in age from 9 to 28. She's currently married to Barry Herridge -- the therapist she married in Las Vegas after meeting on the Internet.
She has since been found safe and sound in a hotel in Dublin and she's currently getting medical attention

All that's required is a little bit of forethought and a few key facts to remember to tell your barber.

The 27 jobs that are most damaging to your health


Some jobs intrinsically have more health risks than others. A nurse working in a hospital is more likely to catch an infectious disease than a lawyer working in an office, for example.
To rank the most unhealthy jobs in America, we used data from theOccupational Information Network, a US Department of Labor database full of detailed information on occupations.
In order to analyze jobs by their impact on workers' health, we took O*NET measures of six health risks in each of the 974 occupations in the database: exposure to contaminants; exposure to disease and infection; exposure to hazardous conditions; exposure to radiation; risk of minor burns, cuts, bites, and stings; and time spent sitting, since studies show that frequent inactivity shortens your lifespanO*NET scores these factors on a scale from 0 to 100, with a higher score indicating an increased health risk.

A Kansas City man arrested for attacking his wife is also suspected of feeding his 7-year-old son to pigs after beating him to death.
Michael Jones, 44, was held after reports that he had assaulted his wife at their home and fired a gun at her.

The next day, human remains were found at a barn on their property in Wyandotte County.
Local women who knew the family said the couple had eight children, but their son had disappeared earlier this year. They also claimed Jones’ wife added livestock to the barn in September.

The government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is investigating a report that the U.S. government has been spying on executives of the state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela, or PDVSA, over the past decade. “The oil industry is the backbone of the Venezuelan economy,”Maduro said on state television. “The U.S. empire for a long time … has intended to sabotage [Venezuela’s] oil industry and defeat the [Caracas] government in order to steal the oil.”
He spoke Wednesday shortly after the news website The Intercept said it had documents from Edward Snowden, the former contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), saying the agency had been spying on PDVSA’s senior executives. Snowden, who faces espionage charges himself for releasing secret NSA files in 2013, is now living in self-imposed exile in Russia.

The $400,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith is a car with no rivals

Rolls Royce WraithBenjamin Zhang/Business Insider
The Rolls-Royce Wraith quite unlike any car in the world. As the adage goes, "A Rolls-Royce is a car you don't drive. It's a car in which you are driven." That may have been this case during the days of "Downton Abbey," but things have certainly changed.
With the two-door Wraith, you have a Rolls-Royce that's designed to be driven — and driven at high speed. Don't be mistaken — the Wraith isn't a spritely Lotus-esque English sports car. If you're expecting a bigger Elise with a leather-lined cockpit, you will be disappointed. On the other hand, it's far from a grand luxury limousine. This Rolls falls somewhere in the between the two extremes. 
Earlier this year, Business Insider spent a few days behind the wheel of a 2015 Rolls-Royce Wraith, clad in a resplendent Royal Blue livery. 

The single biggest way shoppers are manipulated by retailers

macy's black friday shopping consumer
It's Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving when Americans take a brief respite from stuffing their faces with turkey to stampede into stores in an effort to take advantage of what appear to be great deals.
But it's a mistake for shoppers to think they're somehow winning at the cost of the retailer.
Sure, it makes sense to buy a good when the price is discounted. But that feeling of confidence is exactly what the retailer wants as they bombard us with not-so-good deals.

Turkey: We would have acted differently if we knew the jet was Russian

Russia is preparing to sanction Turkey in response to its downing of a Russian warplane earlier this week, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced in a televised cabinet meeting on Thursday, according to the BBC.
"The government has been ordered to work out a system of response measures to this act of aggression in the economic and humanitarian spheres," which may include "limits or bans" on "foodstuffs, labor, and services from Turkish companies," Medvedev said.
The sanctions "could bite into more than $30 billion in trade ties between the two countries, as police here began seizing Turkish products and deporting Turkish businessmen," The Washington Post's Andrew Roth and Karla Adam wrote on Thursday.
