It looks like one of America's most enduring mysteries may have been solved. In 1961 Michael Rockefeller - the 23-year-old son of New York's Governor Nelson Rockefeller and heir to a vast family fortune - disappeared in Dutch New Guinea while filming a documentary. Author Carl Hoffman has been to the area to investigate rumours that Rockefeller was murdered and eaten by cannibals - in this video he reveals what he discovered http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-27053172

Which artist would you like to see represented on your country's stamps? The Finnish postal service is launching a set of stamps to commemorate the work of the late Tom of Finland - one of the country's best known exports, famous for his emphatically masculine, proudly homoerotic drawings. In this interview Timo Berry, who helped design the stamps, explains what makes Tom of Finland's art unique.

It is not promoting anything, it is just the work of a Finnish artist.

Should men be banned from going topless? A theme park has told male visitors they won't be allowed to bare their chests when visiting the attraction. Fashion designer Jeff Banks gives his take and warns that "when the shirt comes off, there's some awful bellies around". http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01xfmtp

"We have a very clear feeling if we don't stop the aggression in eastern #Ukraine , we might lose the whole country," says MP Andriy Shevchenko. Pro-Russia militants are continuing to occupy government buildings in eastern Ukraine, ignoring a deadline to leave or face eviction by Ukrainian forces. The city of Sloviansk is completely surrounded by barricades and the Russian flag has been seen flying over the police station.  At least one Ukrainian officer died over the weekend as a result of clashes on the outskirts of the city. Can the two sides resolve the crisis peacefully? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-27018199

 Think moving house is bad? How would you like to move a 66 million-year-old T-Rex across the US? Scientists are shipping a dinosaur skeleton from Montana to Washington DC to go on display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-26981943

When this T-Rex was alive, 66 million years ago, it did amazing movements with dexterity, now it is the turn of its skeleton, a part of the living one.

Are you an avid user of social media? Do you like looking at pictures of your friends on social networking sites? If so, do you ever feel bad about yourself afterwards? Researchers at one British university say they found that the more time women spent on Facebook, the more they compared their bodies with those of their friends, and the more they felt negative about their appearance.
