    Twins Separated at Birth, Reunited by Facebook

    (CNN) — Anais Bordier and Samantha Futerman have the same laugh and the same freckled cheeks. They wear their hair the same way and have since they were babies. They share a hatred of cooked carrots, a love of the same color nail polish and the need to sleep 10 hours a day. The pair tease, poke and prod each other like they’ve grown up together, but they didn’t. Neither woman knew she had an identical twin sister until less […]

    Five Ways To Honor Veterans Beyond Veterans Day

    (CNN) — Tuesday is Veterans Day, and there will be speeches and parades. “Thank you for your service,” the phrase that’s come to define how America expresses gratitude for its men and women in uniform, will be said, a lot. But what does a holiday — a single day — really mean to the 19.6 million veterans it’s meant to honor? CNN asked a few of them. Their answer: Go beyond the holiday. They encouraged a constant, creative and sensitive […]

    Are These the Worst Political Ads Ever?

    (CNN) — Brittany Maynard says she hasn’t decided yet when she’ll end her life, but it’s a decision she’s still determined to make. “I still feel good enough and I still have enough joy and I still laugh and smile with my family and friends enough that it doesn’t seem like the right time right now,” Maynard says in a video released to CNN on Wednesday. “But it will come, because I feel myself getting sicker. It’s happening each week.” […]

    Watch Live: Partial Solar Eclipse

    (CNN) — The cosmos will cast an afternoon delight over the country on Thursday with a partial solar eclipse. The moon will clip the sun, making it look like a fingernail as it sets in the west for most of the country and Canada. The show will reach its height between 5:45 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. ET, NASA says, meaning the Eastern half of the country should get a view before the backdrop of golden twilight hues. People living in the […]

Authorities aren’t sure if the letter was left on […]

    PHOENIX, Ariz. — A dental hygienist in Phoenix noticed something strange in the mouths of her patients — and spoke up about it. Now a toothpaste manufacturer is taking action, according to KNXV. Trish Walraven has seen lots of things as a dental hygienist, but until a few years ago, she had never seen anything like this. “We thought it was a cleaning product or something that people were chewing,” Walraven said. They were little blue dots trapped in the tiny […]

    9/11: 13 Years Later

    (CNN) — A voice on the phone. A cry in the dark. A flag raised amid death and devastation. These are the stories forever linked with the September 11, 2001, terror attacks in New York, Washington and western Pennsylvania. In some cases, they are tales of ordinary people caught in extraordinary circumstances — people who became symbols of comfort and hope for a grieving nation. Then there were those who were behind the attacks, people who have become the emblem […]
