    What’s Inside Paul Revere’s 1795 Time Capsule?

    (CNN) — More than 200 years after Samuel Adams and Paul Revere first buried it in Boston, it took an hour Tuesday to remove all the objects crammed inside a tiny time capsule. “They said it was hermetically sealed, and I think they really meant it,” said Pam Hatchfield, head of objects conservation for the Museum of Fine Arts. Among the stash Hatchfield removed from the 1795 time capsule: Five folded newspapers, a Massachusetts commonwealth seal, a title page from […]

    Two NYPD Officers Shot and Killed in Brooklyn

    (CNN) — Two New York City Police Officers are dead following an ambush Saturday afternoon.

    Will Jerry Sandusky face new charges?

    (CNN) — A man who says he was molested by Jerry Sandusky has filed a private criminal complaint in Pennsylvania, trying to force prosecutors to reopen their investigation into the former coach and take him, once again, to trial.

Victim X said Sandusky molested him in 1988 when he was a junior in high […]

    Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson Resigns

    (CNN) — Now that a Missouri grand jury has decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson, what will happen to the man who killed an unarmed teen in the line of duty? Technically, the 28-year-old officer could have returned to his job at the Ferguson Police Department. But many believe he will never work as a cop again. On Saturday, Wilson resigned from the force, his attorney confirmed to CNN. The eight-year police veteran wrote in his resignation letter he […]

    FERGUSON, Missouri (CNN) — A Missouri grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the August 9 shooting death of Michael Brown, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch said Monday night.

Brown’s father is “devastated” that Wilson will not face charges, a spokeswoman for Michael Brown Sr. […]

    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) — In Cedar Rapids Iowa, independent U.S. Senate candidate Rick Stewart made a bold proposal. He wants to end negative television advertising in the state. Stewart is not the first to call for this. Almost every election cycle we hear proposals to bring an end to the nasty ads. There is always speculation that we have reached some kind of tipping point. But in the end the proposals never go far. The truth is that people hate negative ads, […]

    Brittany Maynard On Decision to Die, Not Time Yet

    (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.” […]
