Nurse Kaci Hickox's neighbor: It's common sense, stick to the quarantine

Negotiations between the state of Maine and nurse Kaci Hickox over the limits of her quarantine ended today with no resolution.  The disagreement was over the guidelines on how and when she could leave her house, while staying away from public places.

Early Thursday morning, Hickox and her boyfriend left their Fort Kent home for a bicycle ride around town, followed by state police.

Police were not authorized to arrest her, the governor saying they were there for her protection and to monitor any interactions with the public.

But Gov. Paul LePage said he would use "the full extent of his authority" to protect public safety.

James Majka lives down the street from Hickox in Fort Kent, Maine, a small town with a population just above 4,000. In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Majka says Hickox should have remained in quarantine.

Apple CEO comes out: "I'm proud to be gay"

A glass ceiling cracked Thursday as Apple chief Tim Cook became the first Fortune 1000 CEO to publicly acknowledge that he is gay.

In a column in Bloomberg Businessweek, Cook writes that he had long been open about his sexual orientation, but had just not discussed it publicly until now.

It's a watershed moment for corporate America, and in the life of a man who was born in a small town in Alabama and ended up at the helm of one of the world's most valuable companies.

CNN's Erin Burnett has the report.

FBI most-wanted suspect Eric Frein in custody

(CNN) - After nearly seven weeks on the run, suspected cop killer Eric Matthew Frein is in custody, Pennsylvania State Police spokeswoman Connie Devens said Thursday.

"I can confirm that we have taken Eric Frein into custody. Further information will be released at a later time. No further information will be released or confirmed at this time," she said in an email to reporters.

According to a federal law enforcement source, Frein was caught hiding at an airport in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. He was arrested by U.S. marshals, the source said.

Frein was taken into custody without incident, according to a second source. The fugitive was armed, and at least one weapon was recovered, a third source said.

Frein, 31, is suspected in the September 12 ambush shooting that left Cpl. Bryon Dickson dead and Trooper Alex T. Douglass wounded outside the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Blooming Grove.

Crews search for clues to NASA rocket explosion

Investigators are trying to piece together exactly what caused a more than $200 million rocket carrying supplies to the International Space Station to explode seconds after takeoff.

The imploding rocket caused flaming debris to rain down across NASA's launch pad at the Wallops Field Facility in Virginia.
Fortunately, no one was hurt. But the explosion has raised serious questions about safety when it comes to the commercialization of space exploration.

Athena Jones is OutFront with more on the investigation and what might have gone wrong.
