Amid escalating international tensions, North Korea has released footage of Kim Jong Un firing a gun during some target practice with his military last week.

This comes as the young leader continues to threaten South Korea and the U.S. in an attempt to bolster his image at home in the rogue, isolated nation.

His propaganda machine is in overdrive. See below.

  • Kim Jong Un on a Horse!
  • Kim Jong Un Fires Gun

If the 28-year-old weren't an authoritarian dictator and violator of human rights who may have access to nuclear weapons, this would honestly be hilarious.

One wonders what he thinks he's accomplishing with this nonsense, but perhaps that's part of it: Kim Jong Un loves keeping enemies off balance and on alert.

Talk about sticky fingers!

German police have reported that thieves made off this weekend with five-and-a-half tons of Nutella, stealing the delicious chocolate spread from a trailer in the town of Bad Hersfeld.

The hazelnut-flavored haul is estimated too be worth over $20,000, with sources saying these same culprits previously made off with a bunch of energy bars from the same location.

It's unclear what the still-at-large criminals have in mind with the treat, but we know of at least one Nutella cookie bars recipe that is rather tasty.

Samuel Little's more than 100-page rap sheet details crimes in 24 states spread over 56 years - assault, burglary, armed robbery, shoplifting and drug violations.

In that time, authorities say, he served less than 10 years in prison.

little, s

Baffling and sad as that is, when Los Angeles cold case detectives caught up with Little this past fall, they had far more serious allegations against him.

Investigators wanted the recidivist criminal on far more serious charges: The slayings of two women in 1989, both strangled and nude below the waist.

Samuel Little's name came up, police said, after DNA evidence collected at old crime scenes matched samples of his stored in a criminal database.

Barbie is the ultimate doll, so it makes sense that she's dolled up.

Hot. Always. No matter what she's doing or wearing, the girl is a looker ... but have you ever wondered what she looks like with no makeup?

Artist Eddi Aguirre Cendejaz attempted to envision it, and wow:

  • Barbie Without Makeup
  • Barbie Photo

Sans blush, lipstick, mascara and fake eyelashes, Barbie without makeup has never before been seen ... except maybe by Ken first thing in the morning.

Assuming she sleeps over. We don't know what their deal is.

Our primary point: In an era where going au naturale is all the rage, should Mattel start selling Barbie dolls without makeup? Would she be as popular?

We vote yes. Any pic of Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga or Demi Lovato without makeup instantly gets tens of thousands of Likes on Facebook. Just saying.

Facebook has blocked a mom over breastfeeding photos uploaded to a page she runs for new mothers, setting off a firestorm of debate and controversy.

FB Logo Thumbs Up

Kristy Kemp runs the support site Breastfeeding Mama Talk, which has drawn more than 4,300 fans, one of whom uploaded nursing images (below).

Facebook reportedly responded by blocking Kemp, locking her out of the page she created and removing the image, which it said “violated” company policy.

But a closer reading of the Facebook community standards makes this action seem dubious, and sparked backlash. Facebook rules for photos read:

The morning-after pill, also known as Plan B, could hit shelves as an over-the-counter drug store product as early as May, thanks to a judge's ruling.

Morning After Pill

A federal judge ordered the Food and Drug Administration to allow emergency contraception drugs, such as Plan B, to be sold over the counter.

In his ruling, Edward Korman repeatedly referred to the "bad faith" resulting in restricted access to Plan B in the past. The FDA can appeal the ruling.

Currently, women under 17 need a prescription for emergency contraception.

Although women 17 and older don't need a prescription, the morning after pill is available only behind the pharmacy counter and an ID is required.

The baby polar bear at the Buffalo Zoo has some cute company.

Kali, an orphaned polar bear cub currently residing at the Alaska Zoo, is winning fans across the nation and world ... and it's easy to see why, isn't it?

Lil Bear

The cub, who is about 3-4 months old, was taken to his temporary home in Anchorage in March after his mother was fatally shot. The shooter turned the cub in.

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says it eventually plans to relocate the little cub because the Alaska Zoo already has two polar bears on display.

We <3 Kali.

Lululemon announced this week that Sheree Waterson, its top product executive, is stepping down after last month's see-through yoga pants fiasco.

Yoga Pants Picture

Waterson's exit comes quickly on the heels of the Canadian company's large recall of Lululemon's popular black yoga pants, due to their sheerness.

A subsequent bending-over test made PR matters even worse.

The pants were recalled because they were unintentionally see-through - 17 percent of all women's yoga pants had the defect - and created a shortfall.

"We appreciate the many contributions that Sheree made during her time with Lululemon, particularly in the area of design," Lululemon's CEO Christine Day said.

In the meantime, guys everywhere will continue to stare at girls in yoga pants, who increasingly use them as a substitute for regular pants, sheer or not.
