North Korea's 'ballistic submarine': Will Kim's gamble pay off?
North Korea's "new vessels" may be relatively advanced, but they pale in comparison with the US naval assets that they face. So why is Pyongyang lavishing millions on these submarines? Julian Ryall reports.

Monica Lewinsky publicly complained Tuesday about the title of an upcoming HLN documentary focused on the scandal around the relationship between the former White House intern and President Bill Clinton. By Wednesday morning, the network changed the title.
Beginning Dec. 3, HLN will air a two-part episode of its true crime series, “How it Really Happened,” about Clinton and Lewinsky that details the affair, the fallout and the household names that followed. The network originally titled the special “The Monica Lewinsky Scandal,” but Lewinsky was not having it.
Lewinsky, who has emerged from her scandal-scarred past as an anti-bullying activist, suggested her own corrections to the name. She retweeted Tuesday a promo for the special, drawing a red line over the words “The Monica Lewinsky Scandal” and replacing it with her own suggestions: “The Starr Investigation” or “The Clinton Impeachment.”

Modern geese are terrifying enough as it is, but this ancient goose-like dino would have been even more of a nightmare.Take the claws of the infamous Velociraptor, stick them onto the flippers of a penguin and the stilt legs of a wading bird, then top the whole thing off with the long, flexible neck of a predatorial reptile. That was the surprisingly weird combination paleontologists discovered in a fossil that has now been identified as a brand new species in an article published in the journal Nature.
