    (CNN) — Well before the Zika epidemic began in Brazil last year, Olympics organizers knew they would face a challenge in keeping the approximately 16,000 athletes and 600,000 visitors to Rio de Janiero healthy.

    Clinton, Sanders spar over … Henry Kissinger

    (CNN) — A surprise guest gate crashed Thursday’s Democratic debate: Henry Kissinger. In a blast from the 1970s that must have left many young Democratic voters bewildered, the former foreign policy guru to President Richard Nixon took an unexpected, starring role in an exchange between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Kissinger won a Nobel Peace Prize for helping to arrange the end of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, and is credited with secret diplomacy that helped Nixon open Communist […]

    NYPD officer found guilty of manslaughter, official misconduct in 2014 shooting of unarmed man

    NEW YORK (CNN) — Officer Peter Liang, who shot and killed an unarmed man in a New York housing project stairwell in 2014, was found guilty of manslaughter and official misconduct on Thursday.

    Breakthrough: Scientists detect Einstein-predicted ripples, UAH researcher involved in discovery

    (CNN) — Gravitational waves are a reality, according to scientists from an institution that has been hoping to observe them. “We have detected gravitational waves. We did it,” said David Reitze, executive director of LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. The discovery, based on ripples in space-time detected by LIGO, supports a prediction made by Albert Einstein that’s essential to his general theory of relativity. The ripples LIGO detected are based on the merging of two black holes, Reitze said. […]
