Unusual or Severe Weather Current Event News By: Vivian Vu US warns Russia on war games as tensions mount in Ukraine's Crimea The United States warned Russia it would be a "grave mistake" to intervene militarily in Ukraine, as the Kremlin ordered 150,000 troops to test their combat readiness and armed men seized government buildings in Ukraine's Crimea region and raised a Russian flag over a barricade. Secretary of State John Kerry issued the stern warning on Wednesday after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the large-scale military exercises in what many see as a show of force or possible prelude to intervention in Ukraine. "Any kind of military intervention that would violate the sovereign territorial integrity of Ukraine would be a huge, a grave mistake," Kerry told reporters in Washington. "The territorial integrity of Ukraine needs to be respected."

Other finalists include the Kikka Digga, a clip-on device that makes digging in the garden easier, and the Hydroguard, designed as a portable flood defence system. The project's finalists will be showcased at the Gadget Show Live in April and visitors will be able to use the products that have been specifically designed to help with everyday tasks. A total of 20 inventions have been shortlisted as part of the British Inventors Project, including the Wi-Fi enabled bed from Balluga, illustration pictured. It is a smart interactive bed with adjustable firmness, climate control and a built-in vibro massage system.

China's State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense announced the discovery, including images of what it said were three suspected floating objects. The objects aren't small: 13 by 18 meters (43 by 59 feet), 14 by 19 meters (46 by 62 feet) and 24 by 22 meters (79 feet by 72 feet). For reference, the wingspan of an intact Boeing 777-200ER like the one that disappeared is about 61 meters (200 feet), and the plane's overall length is about 64 meters (210 feet). The images were captured around 11 a.m. on March 9, the day after the plane went missing, but weren't released until Wednesday.

Wednesday, as the second major ice storm in two weeks froze the city in place, it proved true. Unlike two weeks ago, when two inches of ice and snow left thousands stuck on the Interstate overnight and made the city the butt of national jokes, Atlanta was prepared for a wide-ranging storm that marched across the South and headed north toward Washington and New York. But not so other parts of the South. As a rare storm that mixed ice and snow swept through several Southern states, gridlock played out in Raleigh, N.C., as people who thought they could beat what turned into a vast regional ice storm were stuck on roads for hours, apparently ignoring advice from Gov. Pat McCrory, who had pleaded with residents to stay in their homes.

It was, in fact, the 347th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th-century average, the government reported Thursday. That may feel plausible to Californians, whose state experienced temperatures 10 or 15 degrees above normal in some places last month, and especially to Alaskans, where the average temperature was almost 15 degrees above normal.

Kiev mobilized troops and called up military reservists in a rapidly escalating crisis that has raised fears of a conflict. And world leaders pushed for a diplomatic
