MH370: Why do top Indonesian police say they know what happened but M'sian cops 'Play Dumb'

One of the strangest things about MH370 was the insistence of the government of Malaysia in the wasting of search resources over a South China Sea search when it knew on the morning of its disappearance that the flight had recrossed the Malaysia Peninsula to the north of the entrance of the Straits of Malacca. There are several reasonable observations to be made about reports in Indonesia that the 'truth' about the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is known at a senior level in its police force.

Travelblog: Hipster hijabs

When independent filmmaker Habib Yazdi released his "Somewhere in America" video last year, the two-minute piece featuring 26 young Muslim women in headscarves unleashed a flurry of online debate about what it means to be a Muslim in America. There's nothing racy about the video, unless you're a tradition-minded Muslim who thinks women shouldn't be seen outside in skinny jeans and cavorting around on skateboards.
