Ebola medical records

The Texas nurse who contracted Ebola while caring for a dying Liberian man repeatedly visited his room, from the day he was admitted to the intensive care unit until the day before he died. Medical records give details on the care given by nearly 70 Texas Presbyterian hospital staffers who were involved in Duncan's care after he was hospitalized.

Ebola frontline

Locals' skepticism of Ebola and its treatment are only helping the virus spread in West Africa, where there are almost 8,400 cases of the deadly virus. It has killed more than 4,000 people so far. CBS News Correspondent Debora Patta says doctors in Liberia, at the epicenter of the outbreak, are working to reverse that perception.

Baghdad battle

Iraqi Army General Jabbar Naeemal tells CBS News Correspondent Elizabeth Palmer that with the help of American air power his troops have been able push ISIS back beyond the Southern border of Baghdad. Now his troops have to hold the ground.

Breaking apart

Passengers on American Airlines Flight 2293 looked on in shock Monday as their Boeing 757 seemingly started to come apart mid-flight, with the cabin's wall panels tearing open. CBS News transportation correspondent Jeff Pegues says the plane took off at about 1 p.m., but shortly after takeoff, witnesses described the body of the aircraft shaking violently as interior panels on both sides of the plane blew off.

Ultimate choice

Brittany Maynard thinks she may die before the end of the month. CBS News Correspondent Jan Crawford reports Maynard seems very sure that she is going to end her life on her terms, but as certain as she seems, there is also so much sadness, and also some fear about what's ahead.

Cuomo's rise

Andrew Cuomo rose to power as the son of liberal icon and three-time New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, but he endured a humbling collapse in his first run for office and a very public divorce from the daughter of Robert Kennedy. He covers all that and more in his memoir called "All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life." Cuomo speaks to CBS This Morning Anchor Charlie Rose in his first national broadcast interview about the book.

Ferguson off-camera

As thousands gathered in the streets and at St. Louis University for the weekend's last protest, young people challenged those here to think about what happens in Ferguson after the crowds and cameras leave. CBS News Correspondent Vladimir Duthiers reports just 12 percent of Ferguson's eligible voters participated in the last election, a week before the protests we found one young man, 24-year-old Frankie Edwards trying to make a difference.

Challenging youths

Donning a climbing helmet, and supported by a harness, she'd climbed three stories high, to leap to a cross bar a few feet away. It was part of an exercise to build trust and self-esteem -- CBS News Correspondent Michelle Miller reports it was one of the reasons Stewart came to Sunburst Youth Academy, a quasi-military high school 30 miles south of Los Angeles.

Who votes

The Texas case is just one of several ongoing disputes over controversial voting laws that could have an impact at polling places on Nov. 4. Seven states have pending lawsuits challenging new voting regulations and as many as 14 states have new voting restrictions this year and almost as many legal challenges.

Cool cap

When Donna Tookes learned she had breast cancer last winter, the 59-year-old thought she had no choice but to accept one of the most dreaded side-effects of chemotherapy: losing her mane of silver hair. "I had resigned myself," Tookes told CBS News. But secretly, her husband began to conduct research and was able to obtain information about a new and innovative therapy called a scalp cooling cap.
