Ebola rules?

Federal health officials are attempting to bring clarity to an at times confusing patchwork of protocols across the country about when it's appropriate to quarantine travelers returning from the Ebola hot zone in West Africa. As CBS News Correspondent Jericka Duncan reports, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidelines yesterday. This comes after the states of New York and New Jersey instituted their own much more stringent rules last week, and that resulted in New Jersey forcing a nurse returning from Africa into quarantine.

ISIS propaganda

ISIS is stepping up its propaganda war. CBS News Correspondent Holly Williams reports the terror group released a slickly produced video claiming to show British hostage John Cantlie playing the role of reporter in the Syrian town of Kobani, on the border with Turkey. Kobani is under siege by ISIS.

Security breach

There are new questions this morning about the British Prime Minister's security. A jogger on the way to the gym weaved through a crowd and literally ran into David Cameron. The security team wrestled the confused jogger to the ground.

On the trail

With a week to go until Election Day, President Obama is picking up the pace of his campaigning to help Democrats across the country, but it's hardly the packed schedule a more popular president might have lined up.

Directionless control

If Republicans win control of the Senate this Nov. 4, President Obama can surely forget about pursuing some of his key agenda items, like raising the federal minimum wage--he's acknowledged as much himself. What's less clear, however, is what the Senate agenda would look like with Republicans in the majority.

Not so easy

Democrat Mary Landrieu comes from a big political family, so campaigning is in her blood. Her record is 10 events in one day. CBS News Correspondent Nancy Cordes reports the latest CBS estimate, Landrieu leads her GOP opponent Bill Cassidy by five points in a three-way race that includes a Tea Party candidate. But in a head-to-head matchup, she trails Cassidy by four points.

Tesla ban

Michigan's governor signed a law last week effectively banning the electric car maker from doing business in the home state of the three largest automakers. CBS News Correspondent Elaine Quijano reports the law prevents car companies to sell directly to consumers, and Tesla is the only car company using that business model.

Texted victims

Investigators say the gunman responsible for a shooting at a Washington state high school on Friday invited his victims to lunch by text message. Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary yesterday said, the five students were all at a lunch table when they were shot by 15-year-old Jaylen Fryberg. CBS News Correspondent Carter Evans reports, despite these new details, police are still searching for the motive, and the community tries to heal.

No hunger

For about a year, a 12-year-old Iowa boy has had a mysterious illness. He never feels hunger or thirst and therefore refuses to eat and drink. The disorder is so rare that doctors think he may be the only person in the world who has it.

Last stand

No other band has had the type of connection that the Allman Brothers have with the Beacon Theater, selling out more than 200 shows since its tenure began in 1989. And tonight, CBS News correspondent Anthony Mason reports, the band will say goodbye from the city that has meant so much to it from the very beginning.
