Ebola czar

Ron Klain steps into his new role as "Ebola czar" this morning. CBS News White House correspondent Major Garrett has a glimpse at what his role as President Obama's Ebola response coordinator will and won't entail, according to sources inside and outside the White House.

Ebola response

With the threat of the Ebola virus still causing widespread concern across America, the Obama administration is coming under increasing pressure to implement at least some travel restrictions on people traveling to the U.S. from West Africa.

Job Corps

The federal government Job Corps has been around for 50 years, providing training and education to disadvantaged teens and young adults. The tax-payer funded program is now the largest residential program of its kind in the country. But as CBS News correspondent Anna Werner reports, our investigation raises serious questions over how well some Job Corps centers are doing.

Questionable spending

The current Congress has been unable to agree on solutions to many of the nation's most pressing problems, but federal agencies nonetheless have found time to approve nearly $200,000 to study worm-digested compost and more than $800,000 to train mountain lions to walk on treadmills. CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes has more examples of what some might call egregious government waste.

Ben Bradlee

The legendary Washington Post Executive Editor is dead at 93. He led the Post for 26 years and through the Watergate and Pentagon Papers stories.

ISIS fighter

CBS News correspondent Holly Williams goes into Syria to interview ISIS fighters captured by the Kurds. She meets a terrified 15 year-old ISIS fighter. He says he was ripped from his home and forced on threat of death to join ISIS.

Airbag recall

One day after the government issued an urgent letter advising consumers to take immediate action to fix potential exploding air bags, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website did not work. CBS News correspondent Jeff Glor reports a separate page listing affected vehicles was inaccurate, including vehicles not involved. Check to see if you car is on the corrected NHISA list released last night.

Blue Bottle coffee

A new generation of coffee roasters is vying for a piece of America's $30 billion coffee market. They hope to outshine Starbucks by focusing on quality over quantity. But what happens when it's time to scale up? CBS News correspondent John Blackstone reports on one company trying to figure out how.

Sophie Kinsella

She's the New York Times bestselling author of the chick-lit sensation "Confessions of a Shopaholic." And now Sophie Kinsella is launching her 9th novel in the series. The British writer kicked off her book tour in New York on Monday at a "Girls Night Out" party with fans. But CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata met Kinsella at her London home -- and they went shopping.

Solar eclipse

A partial solar eclipse is expected to darken the skies of North America tomorrow, as the moon crosses between the Earth and the sun. Found out how to safely watch this astronomical wonder.
