3 New Suspects In Custody For Boston Bombings - Three friends of the Boston bombing suspect who are currently in custody have been arrested for interfering with the investigation. The three friends are 19 year old college kids and being accused of trying to cover up for 19 year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by discarding a backpack of explosives that was in his room and by making false statements to investigators. According to the FBI, just a few hours after the surveillance camera photos of Tsarnaev and his brother were released, his friends suspected he was one of the bombers and removed the backpack as well as a laptop from his room. Before Tsarnaev's roommate let them into the room, Kadyrbayev got a text from Tsarnaev that said, "I'm about to leave if you need something in my room take it." They are being officially charged with conspiring to obstruct justice and face 8 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Justice Department Appeals Morning-After Case - The Justice Department has appealed a judge’s decision that made Plan B available to women 15 years and older over the counter. The administration argues that this type of contraceptive should not be available to women who are so young.

Breast Implants May Make Cancer Harder To Find - A recent study has found that women with breast implants who were diagnosed with breast cancer were diagnosed at later stages than women who were diagnosed and didn’t have implants. It isn’t believed that the implants themselves contribute to cancer but their presence makes it harder for doctors to examine the breast tissue. Studies are still being conducted but if it is definitively found that breast implants are impairing doctors’ vision than additional screening methods like ultrasound may be introduced into mammogram procedures.

42 Percent Don't Know Obamacare Is The Law - A recent study has found that 42% of Americans don’t realize that Obamacare is LAW. 12% of respondents were under the impression that the bill had been repealed and another 7% thought the law had been overturned. The remaining 23% admitted that they didn’t know enough about the law either way. To counter the lack of awareness healthcare advocates plan to implement major marketing campaigns.

Pa. Woman Who Disappeared In 2002 Found - A central PA woman who went missing after dropping her kids off at school 11 years ago has been found in Florida living with homeless hitchhikers and sleeping under bridges. She told authorities that she went there on a whim and survived by scavenging food and panhandling. When she first went missing she was going through a divorce and was unsure of her future housing and plans when she made friends with the people she ended up traveling to Florida with. She was declared legally dead by the courts two years ago and her husband remarried. She turned herself into Florida police because of outstanding warrants and informed them that she was a missing person. She never checked to see if she was being looked for and said that she had just reached the end of her rope and was tired of running. Her son has graduated from college and her daughter is a sophomore at West Chester University.
