It's the first official tour for Britain's newest addition to the Royal family...and this was Prince George's first official engagement in Australia. The eight-month-old helped unveil a plaque marking the dedication of a bilby enclosure in his name at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. The third-in-line to the British throne seemed enthusiastic about the furry creatures in the flesh...less so about the toy version. His parents William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, handed him back to his nanny for a nap at that point. That left them free to see the rest of the zoo and some of Australia's native wildlife before heading on to Canberra to meet the Governor-General and Foreign Minister.

PLEASE NOTE: CONTAINS STILL IMAGES OF MIXED SIZES This is the Bluefin-21 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle search teams are using in the hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and its 239 passengers and crew. The remote controlled submarine has spent the past week scouring the largely unmapped stretch of ocean floor about 2, 000 kilometres northwest of Perth for signs of the plane. The air, surface and underwater search has narrowed its target range to a 10 kilometre circle of sea floor. Bluefin-21 is now on its eighth deep sea mission with no sign of wreckage so far. The search for flight MH370 entered its 44th day on Sunday with the mystery still unsolved. Hopes for further black box signals are fading as their batteries are now two weeks past their expected 30-day lifespan. As aircraft and ships again joined the search Malaysian authorities said the operation was at a critical point and asked for prayers for its success.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin really likes to be a part of the action, so much so that he made his way onto the field with his back turned to the play in the third quarter Thursday night, just missing running into Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones on a kickoff return. The incident during the 73-yard return got the fans riled up at M&T Bank Stadium as Baltimore ended up settling for a field goal in their 22-20 win. Tomlin was not penalized for sideline interference, although he probably should have been, as he got out of the way at the last second to avoid obstructing Jones' path. It did look as if Jones had to alter his direction somewhat. Jones was up and complaining immediately after being taken down by cornerback Cortez Allen. The Pro Bowl kick returner pointed towards the Steelers' bench. After the game, coach Tomlin said he didn't think that he interfered with the play while at the same time admitting he shouldn't have been on the field. "...I do it quite often, like everybody else in the National Football League. I was wrong, I accept responsibility."Jones didn't blame Tomlin for costing him the score. "As soon as I hit the hole and I was running down the sideline, I was looking at him the whole time like, 'Is he going to move?'" Jones said. "Literally, I was thinking, 'Is he going to move?' I just weaved out of the way. I broke my stride a little but I still should not have gotten caught. I would have done the same thing if I was him."Guess Tomlin has been watching Jason Kidd lately. --------------------------------------------------------Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
