precedent for the senne confirming a justice during a president's final year in office. president reagans nominee, anthony kennedy was confirmed in february 1988. but kennedy's case is an unusual one. the vacancy came the previous year - in july 1987 when justice lewis powell resigned. reagan first nominated robert bork, who the senate rejected after a long, bitter debate. reagan then nominated the less-controversial kennedy in november 1987. the senate confirmed him three months later - 97 to 0. democrats say with 11 months left in obama's presidency, there's plenty of time to confirm a justice. you know how frustrating it can be when your flight is delayed by a few hours. it can really alter your plans... but imagine if your flight landed a full 24 hours later. details of a nightmare flight that just landed in new york city.

6:21 am
software to bypass security features would be dangerous if it fell into the wrong hands because it would allow someone to unlock any i-phone. it goes on to say that while the company believes the f-b-i has good intentions ... it is not willing to undermine decades of security advancements that protect its customers. meanwhile ... i-phone owners have mixed reactions to the governments' order. "it's gonna give the government the right to go into everybody's phone either they're criminals or not, or you're just going along your business, the government is just gonna us that against you all the time." "if it's for an investigation i feel it's justified." the problem that the f- b-i is running into is that there are more than 10 thousand - four digit passcode possibilities. and apple's operating systems includes a feature that ... if enabled ... could wipe out all information on the phone after 10 failed attempts to input the passcode. which worries the f-b-i since the agency claims that the information on farook's phone could be vital to its investigation. in cook's letter he states his concern that

parents are often faced with a dilemma during these cold months. when strapping their little ones into their car seats -- they want them to be warm, but is it safe to strap them in with their bulky winter coat on? experts say the answer is no. they say a thick winter coat adds space between the harness and the child's body.... enough space that can result in a serious injury to their chest, head, and necks. "just because the child fits in the car seat with their coat on and the buckle over it does not mean that the buckle is holding them tightly into the seat. the key is that the seatbelt really needs to be tight against the baby themselves and not be separated from the baby by layers." doctor kimberly giuliano, a pediatrician at cleveland clinic children's recommends covering smaller children with blankets while in the car, or
