Authorities are investigating if any more security video exists showing a teenager who bypassed security at a San Jose airport and stowed away in the wheel well of a Hawaii-bound jetliner. In a statement Monday, airport officials said they have video of the 15-year-old walking on the airport tarmac toward a Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767 on Sunday, but it remains unclear how the teen got onto the tarmac. The   FBI   originally said video showed him scaling a fence. But late Monday, airport officials only mentioned a video that showed him walking on the tarmac.

With her latest "Have You Seen Marie?," Sandra Cisneros has written a picture book for adults (and kids too). It's not what readers expected from Cisneros, who leaped onto the literary scene in 1984 with "The House on Mango Street" and continued with an acclaimed literary career. Her 1991 collection, "Woman Hollering Creek and Other Stories," was a finalist for the L.A. Times Book Prize; her many awards include a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship. Creating an illustrated book, she tells the L.A. Times' Hector Tobar, was a little like working on a film.

If you think asteroid impacts are just the stuff of action movies, think again.  Since the year 2000, a powerful array of microphones has detected 26 nuclear-sized explosions in the Earth's atmosphere-- each the result of a space rock slamming into our planet. You can see where and when these impacts occurred, as well as how strong they were, in the video above. The new video was released by the B612 Foundation, a nonprofit that hopes to send a privately funded infrared telescope into space by 2018 to locate as many potentially dangerous asteroids as possible.  Most of us remain blissfully unaware of the pummeling the Earth gets on a regular basis because the force released by most asteroid impacts is absorbed entirely by our atmosphere and rarely causes much damage at ground level.

The dark of night still draped Mineta San Jose International Airport when a 15-year-old boy from nearby Santa Clara wandered onto a secure airport ramp and toward a Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767. Then he disappeared. The slight teenager, first seen on a security camera video, would not appear again until later Sunday morning, when airline workers spotted him 2,350 miles to the west, walking on the tarmac at Kahului Airport on the island of Maui. In the interim, authorities say, the boy survived a perilous, 5 1/2 -hour odyssey - enduring frigid temperatures, oxygen deprivation and a compartment unfit for human habitation - as he traveled over the Pacific Ocean in the jet's wheel well.

A Tunisian diplomat kidnapped in neighboring Libya pleaded tearfully with his country's president in an online video to negotiate with a militant group for his release. Mohammed Bel Sheik, who was reportedly kidnapped a month ago in Tripoli, did not appear to be injured. Another Tunisian diplomat was abducted in Tripoli last week, shortly after Jordan's ambassador to Libya, Fawaz Itan, was seized. The fate of those two men is unknown. Kidnappings have surged in Libya since the revolution that ousted Moammar Kadafi in October 2011.

There are "trophy wives," and then there the prizes on offer in Future and Kanye West's new video. In the new clip for "I Won," Future extrapolates on that old women-as-prizes-for-music-success canard. While decked out in a Tom Wolfe-worthy white suit ensemble, he promises a potential amour, "Ever since I been with you, I feel like I won me a trophy. " Well, it seems like Future means that as a genuine compliment. And heck, if you play with OutKast at its  Coachella reunion, you probably deserve a medal of some sort.  PHOTOS: 10 great rap lyrics of 2013 Kanye West also shows up for a guest verse, promising to "Take you to the south France / so you can run around without them pants," and declaring the hotness of the entire extended Kardashian clan.
