How satellite buoys may be the key to discovering debris from missing Flight 370

It's now been two full weeks since Flight 370 disappeared and questions and theories far outweigh clues and concrete information.

But could the key to solving this mystery be found among satellite-tracked buoys?

Joining "Piers Morgan Live" on Friday evening, Oceanography researcher Luca Centurioni demonstrated how such instruments may aid in the search for debris in the Indian Ocean.

"We have an element which is underwater. We call it a drug. And that will make sure the drifter follows the ocean currents," explained Centurioni, detailing the first element in a three tier process. "Then we have another sensor which is a temperature sensor. It measures the temperature of the water. And then very importantly we have another sensor which is atmospheric pressure sensor ... and what we do, we feed all the data in real time to anyone who can make use of it." FULL POST

Flight 370 puts Israel on high alert: "Israel has close to zero margin for error in countering and protecting itself against a hijacked airplane"

A dozen days into the investigation surrounding missing Flight 370, there are far more questions than there are answers.

However, among the possible theories exists the notion that the aircraft may have been hijacked, with a plan to be used in a terrorist attack.

Among the many nations that could be potential targets within such a scheme, it is perhaps Israel that finds itself most vulnerable, thanks in part to its size and location.

"Israel's a tiny country. It's situated along the coast. A jet that's been hijacked flying at 600 miles an hour will take about a minute and half to cross the entire country of Israel. It's where Israel's most populated cities are right along that coast. So Israel has close to zero margin for error in countering and protecting itself against a hijacked airplane," explained Michael Oren, a former Israeli ambassador to the United States. "If this Malaysian jet has been hijacked, and there's a sense among Israeli intelligence officials that that is a possibility, then Israel feels that it has to take the necessary precautions. The government met with security officials this week and decided on a number of emergency measures." FULL POST

Might missing Flight 370 have landed, then refueled, in the name of terrorism?

More than a week into the mystery surrounding missing Flight 370, new theories are popping up each day, and with information scarce, nothing feels out of the realm of possibility.

On Monday evening, Bill Weir filled in as "Piers Morgan Live" host, welcoming retired American Airlines pilot Jim Tilmon for a live, primetime interview.

Joining the program via satellite from Phoeniz, Ariz., Tilmon said he wished to "roll something by you," admitting it was "far-fetched" and might sound "crazy."

Searching for answers on behalf of the network and its audience, Weir invited Tilmon to "go ahead, bring it."

Laughing, Tilmon noted that "yeah, I'm going to bring it", before offering his theory.

"What would happen if they did in fact find a way to land, refuel, take off again and then threaten the integrity of certain kinds of structures, structures like the White House, the Eiffel Tower," he wondered. "What if they had threatened those in a 9/11-type approach?"

Mark Cuban becomes a billionaire: "I was literally naked in front of my computer when it crossed the line"

His net worth is in excess of two billion dollars. He owns a basketball team, is on television every week and only wears a suit if it's a "damned good reason."

Well, apparently joining "Piers Morgan Live" for an hour-long interview isn't enough incentive for Mark Cuban to wear a suit and tie. But just because the Dallas Mavericks owner wasn't able to channel his inner Justin Timberlake, that doesn't mean he wasn't rather colorful during his visit with Piers Morgan.

"I remember the second it happened because, I was working at home in the morning, and watching the stock, because we were getting close," he explains, recalling the day he became a 10-figure man. "And I was literally naked in front of my computer when it crossed the line, and I was a billionaire." FULL POST

John McCain comfortable waiting for more facts, and a healthy debate, on both Chris Christie and Ted Cruz

He's been called a "maverick". And a "badass". And, even, the real life version of actor Ed Harris (though his wife thinks he's too cute for such a comparison).

However, on Thursday evening John McCain was simply a guest of Piers Morgan.

A frequent visitor to the program, the one-time presidential candidate joined the host for a primetime interview, sharing some thoughts on a few of the names currently dominating the GOP headlines. FULL POST

Rudy Giuliani on "The Tonight Show" returning to New York: "We have a lot more interesting people to interview than the West Coast"

He's pro-choice, and against medical marijuana. But above all, Rudy Giuliani doesn't believe in welching on a bet.

As such, the former New York City mayor appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Monday night, diligently handing Jimmy Fallon one hundred dollars.

"I lost a bet, I lost a bet, what can I do," laughed Giuliani, as he joined Piers Morgan on Tuesday.

Initially, the former Republican presidential candidate went on the record to say that Fallon would never land in the host's chair of America's most iconic late night program. FULL POST

Nancy Grace on George Zimmerman's "victim" claims: "Just go away and stop rubbing salt in my wound"

Amidst the overwhelming backlash surrounding CNN's morning interview with George Zimmerman, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" asked a trio of voices to offer their insights and reaction.

In a sit down interview with "New Day" host Chris Cuomo, Zimmerman – who in July was found not guilty in the killing of Trayvon Martin – referred to himself as a victim, suggesting that the ordeal of the trial, and the associated media attention, had taken an intense toll on him personally.

Nancy Grace did not share Zimmeramn's perspective: FULL POST

Sandy and Lonnie Phillips react to state senator saying it was "a good thing" James Holmes had 100-round magazine

On Thursday evening, Piers Morgan welcomed Sandy Phillips, the mother of Aurora shooting victim Jessica Ghawi, asking her and her husband Lonnie to share their reactions in the aftermath of recent remarks made by Sen. Bernie Herpin.

During a hearing on Wednesday, the Republican from Colorado offered the following comments in speaking of the Aurora shooting that cost Ghawi her life:

"As it turns out, that was maybe a good thing that he had a 100-round magazine because it jammed. If he had four, five, six 15-round magazines, there’s no telling how much damage he could have done until a good guy with a gun showed up."

Initially, Phillips simply couldn't believe Herpin's statement: FULL POST
