U.S. – Cuba

As Cuba and the U.S. officially resume diplomatic relations for the first time in 54 years, a CBS News Poll shows 58 percent of Americans favor re-establishing diplomatic ties between the two countries, while just 24 percent oppose it. But the poll shows the support for normalization varies greatly when the respondents’ parties are considered.

Bridge collapse

An elevated section of Interstate 10 collapsed yesterday amid heavy rains in the California desert, injuring one driver, stranding many others, and halting travel for thousands by cutting off both directions of a main corridor between Southern California and Arizona. CBS News correspondent John Blackstone reports interstate 10 is closed completely and indefinitely.

Chattanooga shooting

Federal investigators say they’ve received hundreds of leads, but are still trying to figure out why Chattanooga gunman Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on two military sites in Tennessee last week. A source close to the family tells CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan Abdulazeez’s parents encouraged his seven-month trip to Jordan last year because they hoped visiting relatives there would help him recover from what they say was his state of depression. A government source tells CBS News Abdulazeez did not travel outside Jordan during that visit, and did not go to Iraq or Syria to fight or train with ISIS.

Trump factor

After Donald Trump’s comments about Sen. John McCain, the majority of the Republican presidential contenders immediately shot out sharp statements leaping to McCain’s defense. But, based on the diverse, noncommittal opinions of a gathering of Republican voters in Ames, Iowa, it is hard to tell if Iowa voters will turn on “The Donald” over his comments.

Campaign trail selfies

Meeting a presidential candidate is a dream for some voters. Getting a photo with a politician can be tougher. But, CBS News correspondent Julianna Goldman reports, two New Hampshire sisters who are not even old enough to vote are headed for a landslide victory with a mission to snap a selfie with every potential presidential candidate.

Dodd – Frank at five

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis, the U.S. undertook the most comprehensive overhaul of its financial sector since the Great Depression. The “Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” aimed to strengthen the nation’s financial system, preclude another bank bailout by taxpayers, and protect consumers from the kinds of rapacious lending and investment practices that shook the American economy to its core. Is Dodd-Frank, which President Obama signed into law on July 21, 2010, working?

Summer sound

For half a century, Beach Boys songs like “Fun, Fun, Fun” have promised unending summers of fun in the sun — not at all like the life founding Beach Boy Brian Wilson actually led for many years, as Anthony Mason tells us.

Shark attack

Defending world champion Mick Fanning learned the hard way that a surfer’s paradise can — in the blink of an eye — become anything but. Yesterday, at the finals of the World Surf League competition in South Africa, the Australian was attacked by a shark, and it was captured live on TV. CBS News correspondent Debora Patta spoke to Fanning about the close call.

    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
