U.S. investigators suspect the missing Malaysia Airlines flight stayed in the air for about four hours after its last confirmed location: http://on.wsj.com/O6sKWm

At one briefing, officials were told investigators are actively pursuing the notion that the plane was diverted "with the intention of using it later for another purpose."

Well, that UI sure looks pretty.

"Wear is the first OS to fully make use of the the Notification Access APIs introduced in Android 4.3, and as a result, every notification from every app just works. ... No matter what, you get an app icon, the full notification text, and any buttons the notification has. All of this was made without [the third party app] having to do a thing other than having an Android notification."

Date night with the wifey, looking for a place that would suit her fancy. The menu here seemed to pique some interest so we stopped in on a cold Chicago night. Note that it's located on the street that leads right up to the AMC theater. It's in the new section of the shopping center. We decided on a set of small dishes to get some variety, and on the recommendation of some reviews, settled on these: Crispy brussel sprouts and kale salad - There are those people where just the sheer mention of brussel sprouts or other vegetables make them gag, but my theory is that your parents are to blame for your ignorance and hate, because these brussel sprouts and veggies are darn good. Favorite dish of the night. Smoked Scallops - $15 for three? Cooked very nicely, tender, and the pickled tomatoes were quite good. But I come back to $15 for three scallops? I should have gotten a dozen oysters! They were good, but $15 for three seems...ridiculous. I don't know how you would have even shared this dish. Carne asada bone marrow tacos - Rich and tasty, with the perfect spicy sauce--great for a cold night. I'd get this again, but I'm not crazy about it. Real Crab california roll - We were just hoping that it would match the amazing huge crab california roll that we got in Hawaii a few years ago, but we reminded ourselves that snow crab is more of a mild tasting crab--not like dungeoness crab. So keep that in mind--this is a good roll and they didn't cheap out on the crab, but snow crab just doesn't taste that crabby so the roll turns out to taste sort of bland. Tres leches chocolate cake - Asked for a dessert suggestion that wasn't something super sweet, and our waiter suggested this. Very good call--not too sweet, very chocolatey, and the house whipped cream on top was light and also not sweet. Great finish to this meal. Service was attentive and quick, but as others have said, they are just a hair on the overbearing end. In my mind, perfect service is knowing what I want or need without me having to ask it--and then get in and out as invisibly as possible, unless it involves my response of course. They definitely delivered on a good service experience but I think that if you were in a real involved conversation, the interruptions would not be as welcome. I can't fault them for being attentive though, and I think they'll learn the finesse parts of the job soon. Overall, the price reflects the ambiance, service, and the attention to the food they put together. Definitely a very nice date or classy dinner spot, but I wouldn't be visiting here for dinner too often. More of a special occasion place, but we'll be back!

Went there for lunch today. The star of the show here is definitely their miso soup base. You can't get away from it--the goodness and benefits of miso are plastered all over their walls. A little background: I've tried ramen from all over, and I do have particular preferences. I know how to make ramen from scratch and I'll tell you what, it's not easy. I'm not really a big fan of miso or shio soup bases--I feel that their taste is very one dimensional, and that dimension is usually salt. I like my soups to be drinkable without making me feel gross, or need to drink a gallon of water afterwards. Here, since they seem to push miso so much, I figure maybe it's different. I got the Kome Miso (first one on their list). Buddy got the spicy "tonkotsu" ramen. Why the quotes? Well... Broth...Well....it's not bad. My Kome Miso was better than most miso soup bases. Not too much of a grease layer on top, but....still, salty. Definitely missing the full body multi-dimensional flavor of a good tonkotsu-based broth. Above average, but 5 stars? Come on. However, my friend's "tonkotsu" broth was a scam and a fake. This is not good tonkotsu broth. Where's the beautiful swirling creamy mixture that is a broth that has been simmering for hours, or even days? Not here. Just salty and greasy. In either case, there's no way I would feel good drinking the soup. Noodles--a bit on the soft side. Missing the chewy-springiness of what I would consider good ramen noodles. Not bad, but not really good either. In fact, there were a lot of short noodles bits in there, which leads me to believe....they aren't fresh and might have even come out of a bag.... Fillings and toppings-- Corn in my ramen? Hmm, not bad! adds some crunch. I can dig it. Clams in the "tonkotsu" ramen? Today I learned that this is a thing, and I'll pass next time. Vegetables and sprouts? Pretty good, and plentiful. ++ here. Where's my soft boiled egg? Oh, $1.50 extra. Meh. That's fair, I guess, since you are giving me 3 slices of... The one thing I would come back for: The Cha-siu pork. Normal slices of cha-siu for ramen are just braised and slow cooked for a really long time, and then served on top of the ramen. But here, they grill it to render the fat and caramelize the sugars and ho-ly cow it's good. They're not wimpy small thin slices either--nice big chunks, and the cut of the pork was large to begin with too. I am willing to come back here in a month or two after they've stabilized a bit to give them another chance, just because the pork was so good. Final bill was $15 after tax and tip for one person. For a bowl of above average ramen? Sorry, that's too expensive. The value proposition here just isn't good enough. I can get away with what I consider really good ramen with a side of gyoza for ~$11 (Sankyu), or $10 flat for Kurumaya's lunch special. If you know me and read my past reviews, you know that I could really care less about interior decor and ambiance. Win me over with your good food and I'll overlook almost anything. But... Maybe bad luck today, but it was a hot day, and no A/C made the place pretty stuffy. Plus, it really looks like they rushed to open this place--vents not cleaned, place looks half finished. I'm all about hole in the wall places that don't look fully "done", but please convince me that you were spending the time and resources needed to clean up the place you invested in making your food awesome. Bottom line: Has potential, needs to clean up their act. You should stick with the traditional places around here for now. Go get a tonkotsu ramen from Sankyu (not even a 2 minute drive from here) and get your ramen fix. Not as fancy, not as many toppings, but I'll go out on a limb that your bowl will be mostly empty when you're done and your wallet will be a little more full. By the way, keep in mind that the place is rather small. You won't be able to fit a group of more than 4 easily, if at all. I'll update when I visit again in a month or two.
