Shocking Shock Method -- a special CBS News Investigation

CBS News is out with the results of a special investigation into the use of electric shock treatments to try to change harmful behaviors in children and adults with developmental disabilities.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering a ban on using electrical stimulation devices to modify aggressive or self-injurious behavior in people with severe emotional problems and developmental disorders such as autism.

CBS News' Anna Werner spoke with Jennifer Msumba, who is suing the Judge Rotenberg Center, or JRC, the only facility in the country known to use electric shock.

Mideast truce holds, diplomacy ramps up

CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata reports from Tel Aviv on Wednesday that, despite the longest lull in fighting since the current crisis began, the cease-fire feels more like a standoff, and the prospect of a return to war doesn't seem far away: Israeli tanks are still positioned right on the Gaza border.

What exactly are doctors looking for when they suspect a patient may have Ebola?

American Fighting in Syria Worry U.S.

It's very hard to tell which of the estimated 100 to 200 Americans who have traveled to Syria since 2011 might come home and pose a threat. And it's not just American fighters, either. Europeans who have become radicalized pose an equally great threat because they can enter the U.S. without obtaining a visa if their radicalization went undetected and they were not placed on any watch list.

What's driving stock market volatility?

After the relative calm and quiet of the last few months, the newfound market volatility is causing many investors to wonder what's driving the selling and how much longer it will continue. At its core, the problem is that the "Goldilocks" condition that has prevailed and supported share prices is beginning to end.

Security of the Internet of Things
