  • Russia and Turkey refuse to back down in row over jet downing

    By Nick Tattersall and Vladimir Soldatkin ISTANBUL/NIZHNY TAGIL, Russia (Reuters) - Russia sent an advanced missile system to Syria on Wednesday to protect its jets operating there and pledged its air force would keep flying missions near Turkish air space, sounding a defiant note after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet. The downing of the jet on Tuesday was one of the most serious publicly acknowledged clashes between a NATO member and Russia for half a century, and further complicated international efforts to battle Islamic State militants in Syria. President Tayyip Erdogan made no apology, saying his nation had simply been defending its own security and the "rights of our brothers in Syria".

  • Saudi deputy crown prince says considering subsidy cuts after oil price fall - NYT

    (Adds comment on possible lower oil prices) RIYADH, Nov 25 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia may reduce energy and water subsidies for wealthy citizens among other reforms to diversify its economy away from oil amid a sustained fall in prices, its Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was quoted as saying on Wednesday. The newspaper paraphrased the prince's reform plans, adding: "So even if oil falls to $30 a barrel, Riyadh will have enough revenues to keep building the country without exhausting its savings," but without making clear if that figure was its own or had been mentioned by Mohammed bin Salman. The world's top oil exporter has previously said it was studying increases in domestic energy prices, the introduction of VAT and the installation of nuclear and solar power.

  • Wayne Coyne Talks Miley Cyrus Connection: 'She's Just Got a Bigger Brain'

    (photo: Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images) In 2013, Miley Cyrus scandalously twerked all over Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards and basically broke the Internet. Two years later, she shocked and awed at the VMAs again, this time performing with Oklahoma eccentrics the Flaming Lips and surprise-releasing their joint EP, the psychedelic masterwork Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, that same evening. Now, as the Lips and Miley embark on their wild “Milky Milky Milk” club tour that basically makes Twerkgate look like Hannah Montana, Lips frontman Wayne Coyne explains how the two events are connected. It was in fact Miley’s 2013 VMAs spectacle that brought the former teen star to his attention in the first place.
