Tea leaves

Historically, prognosticators have looked at a handful of indicators to make reasoned assessments about the outcome of presidential elections. Those assessments will be made in the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but perhaps with less confidence than in the past. With just 90 days before Americans head to the polls, we look at where Clinton and Trump stand by the numbers.

"Countenancing violence?"

Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine strongly condemned Donald Trump last night after the Republican nominee's suggestion about how "Second Amendment folks" might protect their right to bear arms was interpreted by some as a veiled call to violence.

Athlete sexism?

Female athletes have produced many of the top performances at the Rio Olympics, but even when women win gold medals, much of the buzz remains about the men. Critics say it's proof that sexism is still an issue for female competitors at the highest level of sport.

Hack the vote

About 70 percent of U.S. states use some form of electronic voting. Hackers tell CBS News that problems with electronic voting machines have been around for years, but with millions heading to the polls in three months, security experts are stepping up to sound the alarm.

Pregnancy & DEET

Florida has reported four new cases of the Zika virus spread by local mosquitoes. As the number of infections rises across the U.S., health officials are urging people to use mosquito repellents, including those that contain DEET. But is the chemical -- registered with the EPA -- safe for pregnant women?

Pie in the sky

Could the moon be America's next economic frontier? Moon Express, which this month became the first private company to win U.S. government approval to land on the moon, plans to offer lunar burials when it heads to Earth's satellite next year. But space memorials are just one business line the startup envisions.
