Fox News Radio's JESSICA GOLLOHER (Live from Jerusalem) RUSSIAN JET CRASH INVESTIGATION The Russian jetliner that crashed shortly after takeoff from an Egyptian resort city broke up at high altitude, scattering fragments of wreckage over a wide area in the Sinai Peninsula, Russia's top aviation official said Sunday as search teams raced to recover the bodies of the 224 people who died. Meanwhile in Russia, an outpouring of grief gripped the historic city of St. Petersburg, home of many of the victims. President Vladimir Putin declared a nationwide day of mourning, and flags flew at half-staff. Aviation experts joined the searchers in a remote part of the Sinai, seeking any clues to what caused the Metrojet Airbus A321-200 to plummet abruptly from 31,000 feet just 23 minutes after it departed from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh bound for St. Petersburg.

ERIC CEDILLO (Expert on immigration reform, an attorney on the front line of the debate) PAUL RYAN SAYS HE WON'T WORK WITH OBAMA ON IMMIGRATION REFORM Speaker Paul D. Ryan said in a series of televised interviews on Sunday that he would not work with the Obama administration on changing immigration policy, effectively pushing off the issue to at least 2017. "Look, I think it would be a ridiculous notion to try and work on an issue like this with a president we simply cannot trust on this issue," Mr. Ryan, Republican of Wisconsin, said in an interview with CBS's "Face the Nation." "He tried to go it alone, circumventing the legislative process with his executive orders, so that is not in the cards." The message from Mr. Ryan, who was elected speaker on Thursday, signaled an antagonism toward the White House that both echoed his predecessor, John A. Boehner, and is likely to appeal to the party conservatives who forced Mr. Boehner's resignation. Mr. Ryan taped five Sunday morning news shows, in which he laid out his agenda for unifying his party and his approach to relationships with congressional colleagues, Mr. Obama and Republican presidential candidates. When asked to comment on the statements about immigration, a White House spokesman referred to a news briefing Friday by Josh Earnest, the press secretary, who described the speaker's stance as "a source of deep disappointment." Mr. Ryan said that if the Republicans were to be a successful opposition party between now and the presidential election, they would need to become an aggressive "proposition party," laying out a clear policy vision with alternatives to Democrats, like plans for overhauling the tax code and replacing the Affordable Care Act. "We have been too timid for too long around here," Mr. Ryan said on ABC's "This Week." "We have been bold on tactics but not on policy, not on an agenda. We have to show people what our alternatives are, and that is the kind of leadership I think people are hungry for here." President Obama's executive orders on immigration are stalled in federal court and it doesn't look like there are going to be any laws passed before the election. What does this mean for the millions of people living in limbo in this country?

HOWARD SCHWARTZ (From the CT Better Business Bureau) In his monthly call, Howard chatted about avoid annual holliday scams.

MELANIE ROSS MILLS (Relationship expert and author of the "Life Bond" series) SURVEY: BEARDED MEN MORE LIKELY TO 'CHEAT ON THEIR PARTNER' The fashion of having facial hair is becoming popular among men. However, a latest survey conducted by Eva and Censuwide gives a reason why women should not trust bearded men. According to a latest study, bearded men are more likely to get into a fight, cheat on their spouses and lie. During the survey, Eva and Censuswide surveyed 2,000 people to determine what they think or feel about facial hair. The survey found that more than 47 percent of the men with facial hair had cheated on their spouse, as compared to only 20 percent clean-shaved men. In addition, the survey found that bearded men were more likely to get into an argument or a fight. Nearly 45 percent of men with facial hair reported of having caught up in a brawl, while 39 percent of the bearded men reported of getting into such an act. The survey was not just restricted to loyalty and aggression. The study also found that bearded men were more likely to steal than non-bearded men. Nearly 40 percent of bearded men confessed to have stolen something in their life. On the other hand, only 17 percent of the men with no facial hair admitted committing the crime. A similar survey conducted on women revealed that 65 percent of the women would "never consider getting romantically involved with a beard-wearer." Nearly 44 percent of the women said that the idea of it being "unhygienic" puts them off at first. "In my photography career I've certainly noticed attitudes are shifting in regards to long beards and mustaches," said Jens Wilkhom from Eva, in an interview with The Independent. "Fashion changes so quickly, the beard trend is one that comes in every decade or so, but we might be seeing the end of the current beard cycle." Are beards a red flag for women? If a guy grows a beard, is it a sign that he has too much testosterone and is more likely to be a bad boy? Is there anything to this? Should women who like bearded men end their love affair with facial hair?
