Happy Birthday Google! 15 years of searches and more

Big birthday news today – Google turns 15.

The search engine was officially launched on this day in 1998 out of a garage in California. It's amazing how much the world – and Google – has changed in only 15 short years.

In 1998 Saving Private Ryan was the No. 1 movie of the year, Seinfeld was wrapping up its nine-year run, Apple decided to drop the rainbow colors from its logo, and people used other search engines. FULL POST

Commercial pilot dies after suffering heart attack mid-flight

An in-flight emergency with a sad ending.

A United Airlines flight was forced to make an unexpected stop last night after the pilot suffered a heart attack in the cockpit. The Captain was flying a 737 from Houston to Seattle when the first officer had to take control of the plane. Air traffic controllers told him to land in Boise when he called for help.

Passengers on the plane say they were impressed with how the crew handled the emergency. Sadly the pilot, Captain Henry Skillern passed away this morning. He was 63 years old.

President Obama, President Rouhani share historic phone call – now what?

Outfront tonight – the historic call with Iran.

President Obama dropped a bombshell announcement today, revealing he spoke directly to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani by phone. It's the first time a U.S. president has directly communicated with the president of Iran since 1979.

It's also a major shift in momentum. On Monday, the Obama administration suggested there might be a face to face meeting, leaving the door open to "engage with Iran on a variety of levels." Then nothing happened at the UN.

President Rouhani blamed the non-meeting on a lack of time, but President Obama didn't give up. The two spoke today as Rouhani was on his way to the airport.

But will this really lead to a diplomatic settlement on nuclear issues? Outfront tonight are General Wesley Clark, the former NATO supreme allied commander, and Chad Sweet, a former CIA officer and Co-Founder and Managing Principle of the Chertoff Group.
