Watch: Society of the Snow.” Would you survive a plane crash in snowy mountains? That’s the plot of this Netflix thriller based on a true story. In 1972, an inexperienced pilot took a wrong route and crashed a flight carrying 45 passengers with 19 members of the Old Christians Club rugby team deep into the Andes. The gut-wrenching tale may make you cover your eyes at times, but it’s an Oscar-nominated must-see (just don’t eat while watching). – Suhani

UN chief: We must avoid the mistakes that led to World War I

Winston Churchill once said: "Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Those words ring as true today as they did in 1948.

They just pulled their country out of the Istanbul Conventions, European agreement that meant to protect women. And he also just sacked his new central bank governor. That's four central bank governors in two years. The economy is not doing well. The Turkish lira is getting crushed, his domestic popularity not going well.

But the big news, is that Erdogan is about to face another diplomatic challenge, which is from the United States. As I've heard from the White House, that President Biden is going to recognize the 1915 killing of Armenians under the Ottomans' rule as a genocide.
