This is what Nikolas Cruz's life in jail is like

Parkland, Florida (CNN) New documents obtained by CNN provide a glimpse into the Florida school shooter's life in the Broward County Jail.

White House continues to delay gun proposals

Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump isn't expected to announce new proposed action on guns until he meets with representatives of the video game industry on Thursday, two sources familiar with the matter tell CNN. Both sources caution, however, that the President could change his mind at any time and opt to move forward with his policy before the meeting. Nearly three weeks since the shooting that killed 17 people, Trump appears more eager to take action on campaign promises to his base tha

'The Shape of Water' wins, as Oscars tackle the serious without losing the fun

"The Shape of Water" floated to the top as best picture at the 90th annual Academy Awards, bringing a suspenseful close to an awards season punctuated by the sexual-harassment scandals that have roiled Hollywood. The Oscars are a big, unwieldy beast, which invariably try to serve too many masters. Yet if the intent was ultimately to maintain a celebratory tone without ignoring either the outside world or the elephant in the room throughout this year's awards, host Jimmy Kimmel and the show itse

Where do adults belong in the 'March for Our Lives?' All the way in the back

My daughter and her peers have shown me that change is possible and perhaps even inevitable. In only a few days and weeks, teens across the country have heard the rallying cry of Parkland survivors and created dozens of local "March for Our Lives" events. My daughter has held meetings, prepared press releases, spoken to media, run social media accounts and even worked with T-shirt designers to create merchandise to raise money for our local event and the national one. And she's just one teen, in

A mixed martial arts training for Filipino women

Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — It’s eight a.m. on a Saturday, and the six-hour session is about to begin. Tammy, a 31 year-old entrepreneur, is the first of the girls to arrive. She does yoga and running, and says she’s here for self-defense. “[I'm here to] Develop a bit of confidence and not be oppressed by men,” she says with a laugh. “You have that, like, fear in your mind, you know? It’s kind of like an instinct of fear that I want to gear myself up against. That’s the bigger picture.”

CNN (national media hit) - Maria Shriver Breaks Husband's Cell Phone Law

(CNN) -- A celebrity gossip Web site has caught Maria Shriver a third time apparently violating California's law against using a cell phone while driving. Shriver's husband, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, last year supported and signed into law a ban on using handheld communication devices while driving. Shriver's most recent alleged violations come on the heels of AAA Northern California's "Heads Up Driving Week," during which the auto club urged motorists to get in the habit of driving without distractions such as cell phones, fast food and tuning the stereo. "We hope that by driving distraction-free for a week, people can pick up the habit for life," AAA spokesman Matt Skryja said in a news release.

Democrats are weaponizing the health care debate

The effects were felt in Virginia's state legislative races, too, delegate-elect Wendy Gooditis said on a day-after call with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. Gooditis's brother, who struggled to find treatment for PTSD and then alcoholism because he was not insured, died early on in her campaign. "I talked and talked and talked about the expansion of Medicaid this year," Gooditis said on Wednesday. "Now, having earned the huge honor of joining the house this year, it's going to be a major push for me, as well as many others."

#2020Vision: Did Bernie jump the gun?

There are signs of momentum this week for Cathy Glasson, one of the Sanders-friendly Democrats running to be the next governor of Iowa. It's a crowded primary field, so the endorsement — and with it fundraising and strategic support — she got from the small but influential Progressive Change Campaign Committee, is nice get for Glasson. A nurse and Service Employees International Union local leader, she backed Hillary Clinton in 2016 (at least in part because the SEIU did), but has been working to woo Hawkeye state Berniecrats. She was visible making the rounds during Sanders' first return to Des Moines since the election over the summer at the Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement Action Fund Convention.

Nepal outlaws menstruation huts, but is it enough?

(CNN) Radhika Kami lives with her family of six in a traditional mud-and-brick house in a rural village in Nepal's Kanchanpur district -- for most of the year. For about five days each month, the 16-year-old is banished to a hut -- a windowless, ramshackle shed with a small door and poor sanitation and ventilation -- and is forbidden from touching other people, cattle, any fruits and vegetables that are growing, even books. It is known as a menstruation hut, and Radhika must go there each time
