Sometimes we just need to put the phone down and enjoy our surroundings.  Not the best of days for these boaters out on the water.  See why in today's "Video of the Day"


Investigators revealed Wednesday that alleged YouTube shooter,  Nasim Adgham, broadcast her motive right on her target's website.   Agdham racked up millions of views on her YouTube channel with her sometimes bizarre antics like dressing in costumes and dancing next photos of fruit.  Recently, videos of her ranting that YouTube had begun to censor her appeared -- costing her viewers and therefore revenue -- and speculation is that this perceived injustice pushed her enough to launch a suicide mission.


On Wednesday, Facebook revealed that as many as 87 million people,  mostly in the US, may have had their information improperly shared with the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica -- far more than the 50 million initially suspected.  In a conference call with reporters, CEO Mark acknowledged the company didn't focus enough on preventing abuse, saying “We didn't take a broad enough view of what our responsibility is. And that was a huge mistake. And it was it was my mistake.”  Starting Monday Facebook will tell users if their information was possibly shared with Cambridge Analytica by adding a link at the top of the news feed.   The company also announced several other changes, among them restricting access for third party apps and deleting phone and text logs after a year. Zuckerberg said he wishes he could snap his fingers and solve everything in three to six months. But, he said, "these are big issues" and a big shift for Facebook.


Syria...remember them?  What's the status of U.S. military involvement in Syria?  Are we in or out?  We take a look at troop levels, and why haven't we heard more out of the middle east lately?
