From the CNN center in Atlanta, I'm Nicole Lapin. Thanks so much for checking in with us today. Here's a look at what's happening right Now In The News.

We now know that at least six people were injured when a school bus crashed in Palmdale. Police at the sence now say that one of the people hurt was the bus driver and all of the injuries are, however, said to be minor.

The Federal Reserve made an unexpected move in an effort to pump up the economy. It cut the federal funds rate by 3 quarters of a percentage point. Now that rate basically affects how much we pay for credit. It also cut the discount rate by the same amount. That is the rate of which banks use to borrow from the Central Bank. Now the cuts were all in response to the threat of a recession and also, sinking world markets.

The government wanted to put him away for life. Instead, a federal judge sentenced Jose Padilla to 17 years and four months in prison. Padilla was convicted in August of supporting Al-Qaeda. He's been cut speeding ever since 2002. Now back then he was accused of plotting to explode a radioactive dirty bomb. Those charges were however dropped were part of the case. He was sentenced on today.

Presidential race is definitely heating up. And so was the CNN Democratic debate in South Carolina last night. Mostly the big ring was between senator Barack Obama, as you see right there, and Hillary Clinton, there she is. They went back and forth over several issues including healthcare and the economy.

Tim Masters is a free man today for the very first time in a decade. In 1999, the Colorado man was convicted in a 1987 murder. Largely on the basis of his own violent driving of the scene when he was 15 years old. Now Masters' conviction was vacated thanks to DNA evidence and indication, he didn't get a trial. His ordeal is an over-just yet though. He'll be back in court next month and that's when prosecutors will announce whether or not they are gonna trial him again. That's considered to be unlikely in the life of DNA evidence.

It looks like there could be Oscars for "There Will Be Blood". It leaves today the Academy of World Nominations. With the film, No Country for Old Men. Both film received eight nominations apiece. Oscar organizers say the show will be on February 24th despite the writers' strike.
