News: Thai officials spot Bangkok bomber suspect on video

  • Thai authorities said today that they were looking for a suspect who was seen on closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage near the site of the bombing. The man who is suspected of the bombing was seen entering the compound with a backpack on, sitting down against a railing and then slipping out of the bag's straps.

Entertainment: Julianne Hough is engaged to ice hockey player Brooks Laich

  • Julianne Hough, 27, took to her Instagram to announce her engagement to Canadian Ice hockey player, Brooks Laich. She previously dated Ryan Seacrest, who she broke up with in 2013, and Hough and her now-fiancé were first spotted together in 2014.

Tech: Probe of Clinton's server could find more than just emails

  • A forensic examination of Hilary Clinton's private computer could uncover more than just the details that the presidential candidate puts in her email. It could ultimately answer questions about how secure her system is, as well as who had access to it and whether hackers and outsiders tried to get a hold of the computer's contents.

Sports: 5-year-old Orioles fan with prosthetic hand throws out first pitch

  • Hailey Dawson, a 5-year-old Baltimore Orioles fan, was born with Poland Syndrome, resulting in her being born with a palm and no fingers. The young girl's prosthetic hand is Orioles-themed, and on Monday night, she was able to take the field and throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game.
