Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta bring back their iconic 'Grease' characters

  • John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John recreated their iconic "Grease" characters, Danny and Sandy, on Friday night in West Palm Beach, Florida.
  • Appearing in her "good girl" outfit, Newton-John is sporting her yellow skirt and matching cardigan, complete with the white button up.
  • But fans of Sandy's bad girl transformation at the end of the film have nothing to worry about.
  • Newton-John made time for a quick outfit change, donning a leather jacket and black pants in time for the Q&A.
  • The throwback comes just days after a fan, after purchasing Newton-John's black leather jacket from the movie for $243,200 at a charity auction, presented the jacket back to the actress.
  • Her entire "bad girl" ensemble -- the skin-tight black leggings and jacket -- sold for $405,700 at an auction in November, with proceeds going to Newton-John's cancer wellness center in Australia.

Boris Johnson will make history if he can save the UK from division and achieve these 5 goals

  • Prime Minister Johnson – who famously craves both public attention and a place in history – won the former and a shot at the latter through a British election victory this week that was the most convincing conservative victory since Margaret Thatcher in 1987.
  • I opposed Brexit on economic and political grounds yet, at the same time, Johnson might have the political flexibility, the intellectual chops and the Churchillian ambition to confound his critics along the five lines of action he must simultaneously pursue to find his historic place.
  • The Brexit referendum and— three years later— his election vote are part psychological and part political drama for Boris Johnson, the stuff of a West End musical.
  • If Johnson defines his country as too close to the European Union, irrespective of economic logic, his base may well ask what the past three years' drama has achieved other than serving Johnson's own political ambitions.

Let’s talk Samsung Galaxy S11

  • Obviously no major hardware maker in its right mind is going to be announcing anything major in the next few weeks, for fear of preemptively cannibalizing holiday sales.
  • Samsung’s six month flagship release cycle (S series, followed by the Note) affords the company the ability to offer more frequent refreshes, but this first one is really a standard setter for both the company and the industry at large.
  • Doing so puts the spotlight on its own devices and beats the MWC news glut for a few weeks.
  • Likely available for the devices will begin the following month.
  • The recently announced Snapdragon 865 will be powering the device in a number of markets, making the S11 among the first devices to launch with the latest flagship SoC.
  • An impossible large 108 megapixel camera has been rumored for the device, along with 8K video.

The Army-Navy game will honor the three sailors who died in the Pensacola shooting

  • The three sailors -- Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham, 19; Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters, 21; and Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, 23 -- were killed earlier this month when a gunman opened fire at the naval base in Pensacola, Florida.
  • At the football game, set to kick off at 3 p.m. ET, Watson's shipmates from 10th Company will be wearing red, white and blue ribbons pinned to their lapels, the United States Naval Academy said in a statement posted to Facebook.
  • Some of the leadership and midshipmen will wear the Naval Aviation Schools Command patches straight from the flight suits of Watson's Pensacola classmates, the statement read.
  • The attack, which is being treated as an act of terror, happened on December 6 when Mohammed Alshamrani, a Saudi Arabian Air Force officer who had been in flight training at the base for two years, opened fire in a classroom building.

Thousands of chunky, squirming innkeeper worms washed up on a California beach

  • They are not franks but fat innkeeper worms, almost as old as the wet sand in which they burrow.
  • And their appearance was rare: The stranding Ford stumbled into might've been one of the few times they'd ever left the ground in their adult lives, biologist Ivan Parr told CNN.
  • Colloquially known as "penis fish" among biologists and dilettantes for its phallic shape, the innkeeper worm earned their proper name for temporarily housing smaller creatures in their burrows, with little conflict.
  • The powerful storms that hit Drakes Beach around Thanksgiving dumped an inch of rain and wind gusts of 45 miles an hour on the area, likely a driver of the worm's surfacing, Parr told CNN.
  • The resilient worms are ancient creatures, their burrows dating back some 300 million years, Parr said, and one of the oldest worms ever found was believed to be 25 years old.
