    UK referendum: What’s next for Europe as divorce looms

    (CNN) — It’s not us, it’s you. The decision by the UK to go it alone leaves the jilted European Union with some tough soul searching of its own as it contemplates a new future. Sure, it’s only losing one of its 28 member nations, but that departure could have huge consequences. Some warn it could lead to the eventual collapse of the world’s biggest trading bloc as other countries follow suit. Seismic political changes could be on the horizon […]

    Led Zeppelin did not copy ‘Stairway to Heaven’ intro, jury finds

    LOS ANGELES (CNNMoney) — Music history will not be rewritten. A jury found Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page not guilty of copyright infringement on perhaps their most famous song, “Stairway to Heaven.” A Los Angeles jury deliberated for about five hours before deciding the band did not steal its most famous licks from another band. The case centered on claims that Led Zeppelin copied key note patterns in the first two minutes of their hit from […]

    Supreme Court split on immigration, block on Obama plan remains

    (CNN) — In a crushing blow to the White House, the Supreme Court Thursday announced it was evenly divided in a case concerning the President’s controversial executive actions on immigration. The ruling means that the programs will remain blocked from going into effect, and the issue will return to the lower court. It is exceedingly unlikely the programs will go into effect for the remainder of the Obama presidency. Obama announced the programs to great fanfare in 2014 as well […]

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — House Republicans sought to end an extraordinary day of drama and a 16-hour sit-in by Democrats in the early hours of Thursday morning by adjourning for a recess that will last through July 5.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Georgia Rep. John Lewis is leading a sit-in on the House floor Wednesday to push Republicans to address gun violence in the legislative chamber. “Sometimes you have to do something out of the ordinary. Sometimes you have to make a way out of no way. We have been too quiet for too long,” the Democratic civil rights leader said. “There comes a time when you have to say something, when you have to make a little noise, […]

    Birmingham-area teenager gets stuck in Barney head during prank

    (CNN) — Have a Barney costume lying around? Think twice before you put it on. Alabama teenager Darby Risner was trying to pull a prank by wearing the big purple dinosaur costume when the massive mask got stuck on her head and shoulders. Her friends tried to help her out, but only exacerbated the situation by pulling her in both directions — and of course, being the teenagers they are, they took a video and posted it on Twitter. When […]

But her mischievous 3-year-old was practicing a lockdown drill — hiding from a potential attacker, hoping to avoid the type of tragedy that she likely isn’t able to fully comprehend at such a young age. And when Feeley realized what she was doing, she broke down. […]

    Senate rejects gun control measures aimed at tightening curbs on firearms

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Senators couldn’t muster enough bipartisan support to pass a series of gun control measures Monday, the latest in a long string of failed attempts at enacting tighter curbs on firearms in the United States. Spurred by the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, senators from each party introduced the measures they said would have strengthened background checks and prevented suspected terrorists from obtaining weapons.
