1. Campaign 2020Joe Biden is finally in. The former vice president joined 19 other Democrats in the 2020 presidential race with a video that explicitly criticized President Trump’s response to white supremacists’ 2017 march in Charlottesville, Virginia. The President fired right back, welcoming Biden to the campaign fight by reviving his “Sleepy Joe” moniker. His Democratic rivals joined in, too, with many highlighting that the Democratic Party has moved more to the left than he has. And Biden’s political past popped up, after it was revealed that he has expressed “regret” to Anita Hill for how she was treated during the 1991 hearings for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Hill said Biden doesn’t understand the damage he caused.Biden would have to be considered the front-runner in the Democratic race, according to most polls. And many political observers (including Trump himself) consider Biden the biggest threat to the President in the Rust Belt and Midwest. Of course, others think the gravest threat to Biden’s bid is … Joe Biden. He can be a gaffe machine (though one wonders if that even matters in the Trump era), and his earlier runs for the White House didn’t end well.Here's what went wrong in Biden's past presidential bidsHere's what went wrong in Biden's past presidential bidsHere's what went wrong in Biden's past presidential bidsJUST WATCHEDHere’s what went wrong in Biden’s past presidential bidsReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Sri Lanka attacksRead MoreWorshipers of all faiths in Sri Lanka are being urged to pray privately at home as fears of more attacks linger. People have been told to avoid houses of worship, as the country enters the first weekend since terrorists bombed churches and hotels in the island nation. Sri Lanka’s Prime Minister says security forces are arresting terrorist “sleepers” who might still activate attacks. Meantime, the death toll in the bombing was revised down significantly to 253 people. A statement from Sri Lanka’s health ministry said getting an accurate death toll in the bombings “is challenging” because of the ways people died.Authorities ramp up investigation into Sri Lanka attacksAuthorities ramp up investigation into Sri Lanka attackssri lanka terror trail fbi ripley pkg vpx_00023208JUST WATCHEDAuthorities ramp up investigation into Sri Lanka attacksReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

More than 100 students and staff at UCLA and Cal State LA — who’ve been exposed to a confirmed case of measles and can’t prove they’ve been vaccinated — were told to stay home, avoid contact with others and notify public health officials if they develop symptoms. Just this week, the US hit a record with the most measles cases since the highly contagious disease was declared eliminated in this country in 2000. There have been 695 cases in 22 states so far this year.Measles quarantine issued at 2 California universitiesMeasles quarantine issued at 2 California universitiesmeasles quarantine ucla cal state la vpx_00003828JUST WATCHEDMeasles quarantine issued at 2 California universitiesReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Otto Warmbier When the North Koreans handed over Otto Warmbier in 2017, they also handed over something else: a $2 million bill for his medical care. This shocking revelation came from two people familiar with the situation. North Korea insisted the US sign a pledge to pay the bill before releasing Warmbier, an American college student who was held by the North as a prisoner. He died a few days after making it home. President Trump was later told about the bill, but as of yet, it has not been paid. The North Koreans didn’t bring up the bill during Trump’s two summits with Kim Jong Un, but it could come up at future talks.North Korea billed US $2 million for care of Otto WarmbierNorth Korea billed US $2 million for care of Otto WarmbierNorth Korea billed US $2 million for care of Otto WarmbierJUST WATCHEDNorth Korea billed US $2 million for care of Otto WarmbierReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

The latest results aren’t so good. Levels of sadness, anger and fear reached record levels in 2018, according to the report, based on thousands of interviews with people in 140 countries. Chad took home the dubious honor of being the world’s most unhappy country. There were a few rays of sunshine, though. People reported a slight decline in stress and also said they experienced enjoyment and laughed or smiled a lot the day before their interviews. And the world’s happiest and most positive country?
