North Korean officials marked the second anniversary of former leader Kim Jong Il's death with a large memorial in Pyongyang on Tuesday (December 17), less than a week after his son and successor Kim Jong Un ordered the execution of a powerful family ally in a rare public purge. The young leader was the centre of attention at a large memorial in Pyongyang staged to mark the second anniversary of the death of his father, Kim Jong Il. The public display of fealty came only days after the execution last week of Kim Jong Un's uncle, Jang Song Thaek, considered the second most powerful man in North Korea. The ousting of Jang overlaps with a propaganda drive that has tied the younger Kim to his father's legacy in the weeks leading up to the anniversary. Official television KRT footage showed Kim Jong Un sitting centre stage beneath a huge red mural of a flag emblazoned with a picture of his smiling father. Kim, believed to be about 30, took over when his father

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in the Philippines Tuesday on a trip to modernize economic and political ties with one of America's oldest allies in Southeast Asia. Kerry's two-day visit takes him to the capital, Manila, for talks with government officials and the business community, and later to Tacloban in the central Philippines, the epicenter of super typhoon Haiyan, which decimated towns and villages last month leaving more than 6000 dead.

Amid a strong Oscar "buzz," stars Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts shared the spotlight on the red carpet Monday night (December 16) at the premiere of their dysfunctional family drama, "August: Osage County." The film tells the story of a family that is "messed-up" on several levels, starting with Violet, Meryl Streep's pill-popping, viper-tongued matriarch. Barb, played by Roberts offers strong support on screen, as the bitter daughter who bristles at Violet's barbs and wallows in a world of unfulfilled promise. Add a "pickled" alcoholic poet of a father, an old-maid sister, the flighty daughter, the cowed cousin, the pot-smoking teen, the philandering husband and the sleazy boyfriend, and the family picture is not pretty. SOUNDBITE Meryl Street saying (English): "Sometimes you are in a film where people fly in do their part and then fly out. We really lived it together, we really earned the title of dysfunctional family." Although the film is rooted in dy

R&B singer Chris Brown had his probation revoked by a Los Angeles judge on Monday (December 16), but he was not taken into custody because of good reports on his progress in a court-ordered rehab program. The judge pulled the 24-year-old's singer probation as a result of Brown being charged with assault in Washington, D.C. back in October for punching a man who was trying to get a picture with the singer. Brown plead not guilty to misdemeanor assault after the altercation left a 20-year-old man with a broken nose. He voluntarily served a two-week say in a rehabilitation facility for anger management after his October arrest, but the judge ordered Brown to complete a 90-day substance abuse and anger management program in November. The singer was set free without bail on Monday and was given praise by the judge for "doing well" in the program. The Grammy-winning singer is due in court in Washington D.C. on Jan. 8 for a status hearing on his misdemeanor assau

A judge rules the U.S. government's gathering of Americans' phone records likely is unlawful. U.S. District Judge Richard Leon of the District of Columbia ordered the suspension of the collection of data on two phone company customers who sued the Obama administration. The ruling marks a significant challenge to U.S. spying authority. In his written opinion, the judge said that the government's program likely violated Americans' right to be free of unreasonable searches. The U.S. Justice Department is reviewing the ruling - and said in a statement quote: "We believe the program is constitutional as previous judges have found." In June, the British newspaper the Guardian reported that a U.S. surveillance court had secretly approved the collection of millions of raw daily phone records - after former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden leaked the program.

Google is the new home of Big Dog, Cheetah and a whole bunch of animal like robots - many familiar to millions of YouTube fans. Google bought Boston Dynamics- a privately held company- known for building robots that look like something out of a science fiction movie- often co-developed or funded by the military. Google has already bought more than half a dozen robotics companies- and could have big plans: Forrester's Frank Gillett: SOUNDBITE: FRANK GILLETT, PRINCIPAL ANALYST, FORRESTER RESEARCH (ENGLISH) SAYING: "'One of them is to automate the production of phones and gadgets that Google would like to make and have others make in order to bring their costs down and enable much more widespread use." Google has the luxury of lots of money- so they can afford to invest in ideas that sound wacky- but eventually become reality- think Google Glass. In this case- Gillett also says the robots could be used with their mapping projects- like driverless cars:
