Homework

From the CNN Center in Atlanta, I’m Nicole Lapin. Thanks most 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 puddle. Police at the scene now say that one of the people hurt was the bus driver. And now all of the injuries are heard set to be minor.

The Federal Reserve made an unexpected move in an effort to pump up the economy. It cuts the federal funds rate by 3/4 of a percentage point. Now that rate basically affects how much we pay for credit. It also cuts the discount rate by the same amount. That is the rate of which banks used to borrow money from the Center Bank. Now the cuts were all response to the threat over resection and also sinking world markets.

The government wanna to put him away for life instead of a federal judge sentenced * Padilla to 17 years and 4 months in prison. Padilla was convicted in August of supporting *. He’s been in custody ever since 2002. And back then he was accused of applauding to explode a radio act of dirty bomb. Those charges will however dropped and would part of the case. He was sentenced on today.

Presidential race is definitely heating up. And it so was the CNN Democratic debate in South Caroline last day. Mostly the bickering was between Senator Barack Obama as you see right there and Hilary Clinton, there she is. They went bagging and for over several issues including health care and the economy.

* 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 a basis of his own violin dries of the scene when he was 15-year-old. And *'s conviction was vacated thanks to DNA evidence and indication hidden to get that trial. His ordeal isn’t over just yet though. He’ll be back in court next month and that’s when prosecutors will announce whether or not they’ll gonna trial him again. That’ considered to be unlikely in a lie of DNA evidence.

It looks like they could be the Oscars for they will be blood. It reads today the * won nominations with the film "no countries for old man". Both films received 8 nominations appease. Oscar organizers say the show will be on February 24th despite the writers’ strike.

And be sure to stick with the CNN.com and 24/7 for all the news all around the world Of course, we’re gonna get you updates right here from the day. Take care.
