13 days after American James Foley was beheaded by terror group Isis, another video has surfaced. And the way this is all unfolding, it's sounding a little bit too much like the plot of a TV show or movie. And this sequel even promised a third installment by introducing a third Western captive at the end. The executioner directly addresses the camera - repeatedly pointing a knife at it - and the message is recorded from multiple angles and edited. These were filmed this way on purpose. There's some production value -- it's not good production value, but it's done intentionally. It is the epitome of terrorism as theatre -- backed up by a number of psychologist and professors studying terrorism and security.

It seems the Queen isn’t too happy about the sea of smartphones that await her. The Queen who “photobombed” a selfie earlier this summer told an American reporter she misses eye contact when it comes to meeting people as she travels.
