After crash, FAA bans U.S flights over eastern Ukraine
Washington Post: The FAA issued a notice banning all U.S. flights from operating in eastern Ukrainian airspace on Thursday night.
The restriction comes in wake of reports that the downed Malaysia Airlines passenger jet, which was carrying 298 people, was shot out of the sky.

Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman. From Time Magazine:
TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?
Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.
