    Black Friday 2014: A good deal? Or just deja vu?

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — If you’re experiencing déjà vu this Black Friday, there’s a reason: Retailers are repeating products and prices from last year. A whopping 93% of stores surveyed are offering customers year-old products for the same “discount” that was offered last year, according to a recent study from NerdWallet. While that may not be a huge issue for things like furniture and cookware, it does matter when it comes to tech and electronics that can be outdated or […]

    Thanksgiving is President Obama’s favorite holiday; so what’s on the menu at the White House?

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Obama celebrated his favorite holiday — Thanksgiving — with phone calls to U.S. troops, something he often does to mark the holiday. He spoke with representatives from the Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard to express his appreciation for their service, including their work to stamp out Ebola and to defeat ISIS. The Obamas spent Wednesday afternoon in Southeast Washington passing out food and Thanksgiving greetings to people at Bread for the City, an […]

    Another reason to be thankful: That storm that snarled travel on the East Coast is moving out

    (CNN) — It was a hellish holiday travel night Wednesday, with hundreds of flights canceled and thousands delayed by a punishing nor’easter. But the silver lining for Thanksgiving Day? The storms are leaving and conditions should return to normal. Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire will still see some snow. But New York will only get a dusting — and that’s good news for those lining up for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The weekend will be cold, very cold. But […]

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — WalMart makes no apologies for kicking off the holiday shopping season during dinner on Thanksgiving. “We get underway at 6 p.m. and I’m really happy with it,” said Greg Foran, President and CEO of WalMart U.S., on an conference call with reporters Thursday after the release of his company’s third quarter earnings. “It’s absolutely appropriate that we open at 6 p.m.” WalMart is technically open 24 hours, but the retailer’s special deals that lure the big […]

    “We’re overworked, underpaid and disrespected:” Walmart workers plan Black Friday protests

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — Some aggrieved Walmart workers and their advocates have a slew of grievances. And for the third year in a row, they will air them on one of the busiest shopping days: Black Friday. Protesters are expected to gather outside 1,600 Walmart stores across the country as the retailer launches doorbuster deals. That would be more than ever before, according to organizers. Some demonstrations are planned for Wednesday, while others will take place on Thanksgiving Day or […]

    Darren Wilson changed homes, preferred dark movie theaters to avoid detection

    (CNN) — Days after he fatally shot an unarmed black teen in August, Officer Darren Wilson was cutting grass when he was told his home address was circulating online. Within three hours, he’d grabbed some bags and gone into hiding, according to his attorneys. “He had to leave the grass, literally, half mowed,” his lawyer, Neil Bruntrager, told CNN’s Don Lemon late Wednesday. Since then, he’s stayed under the radar by moving from house to house, including briefly living with […]

    Maybe it was the biting cold, or maybe the Thanksgiving holiday: Ferguson much calmer early Thursday

    FERGUSON, Missouri (CNN) — Perhaps it was the biting cold or maybe because it was Thanksgiving. But Ferguson was much calmer early Thursday than it has been the past two days. CLICK HERE for the very latest out of Ferguson via FOX6’s sister station, FOX2 KTVI in St. Louis. A few dozen protesters showed up outside police headquarters in Ferguson late Wednesday night. And standing underneath a “Seasons Greetings” sign stretching over the road, they fired obscenities at National Guard […]

    Black Friday is one day away, but at many stores, there’s no need to wait until Friday morning!

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — You may be one of the faithful Black Friday shoppers lining up outside malls and department stores across America. But at many stores there’s no need to wait. Black Friday doorbusters begin as early as 6 a.m. the morning of Thanksgiving day, when Kmart opens. You can shop there any time until the real Black Friday is over — it’s open for 42 hours and finally closes at midnight on Saturday. Like Kmart, a growing number […]

  • Michael Brown

    Is ‘professor’ who helped with Michael Brown autopsy who he says he is?

    (CNN) — The last thing an attorney might expect to receive at a deposition is a brain, but that’s what the man said he was handing over. A brain. In a bucket. Sliding the bucket across the table and opening the lid, the man urged the lawyer, Michael Hodges, to take it. Hodges declined. The deposition continued. This might have gone down as just on odd moment in Kansas legal history were it not for the fact that about a […]

    Scientists: ‘Positive’ results in 1st human trial of experimental Ebola vaccine

    (CNN) — The first human trial of an experimental Ebola vaccine has produced promising results, U.S. scientists said, raising hopes that protection from the deadly disease may be on the horizon. All 20 healthy adults who received the vaccine in a trial run by researchers from the National Institutes of Health in Maryland produced an immune response and developed anti-Ebola antibodies, the NIH said Wednesday. None suffered serious side effects, although two people developed a brief fever within a day […]

    London is latest city to see protests as Ferguson dismay spreads

    (CNN) — The sparks of outrage that started in Ferguson, Missouri, have ignited a firestorm of protests across the country and beyond. But the furor isn’t just about one grand jury’s decision on one shooting case. To many protesters, the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown — and the lack of an indictment for the officer who shot him — are symbolic of racial injustice in America. “I think that it’s important for people to know that the decision […]
