OOD DAY FOR: A girl’s best friend, after lingerie company Triumph International displayed a $122,000 diamond thong at a fashion show in Singapore. The thong has 518 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 30 carats. “It is very comfortable,” said Danielle Luminita, who modeled the underwear. “It’s not heavy or scratchy or anything.” (Reuters)

BAD DAY FOR: Online reservations, as the Navajo Nation may lose its Internet service Monday, in a dispute involving Utah-based satellite provider OnSat Network Communications. After a tribal audit found possible double-billing by OnSat, the FCC, which pays for up to 90 percent of the service at 70 of the tribe’s chapter houses, said it is withholding payment to OnSat.
