The FBI may have found a new way to crack into the locked iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters — a method that doesn't require Apple's help.

This is a major new development in the increasingly heated debate between the tech giant and the government, which has argued that Apple should be compelled to write new special software that would override some security features. That was the only way, investigators previously had said, that they could crack the phone's passcode without jeopardizing its contents.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Capping a historic visit to Cuba, President Obama delivered a sweeping speech about American ideals and reconciliation at the Gran Teatro de la Havana.

"I have come here to bury the last remnant of the Cold War in the Americas," Obama said.

The speech was carried live by Cuban state television, giving Obama a chance to speak directly to the Cuban people. Cuban President Raúl Castro sat in the balcony of the theater, where he heard Obama issue a tough rebuke of the Cuban regime's crackdown on dissent.

Kansas Campuses Prepare For Guns In Classrooms

Mar 22, 2016

Next summer, in addition to textbooks, laptops and double-strength coffee, Kansas college students will be able to bring something else to class: guns.

By July 2017, all six state universities plus dozens of community colleges and technical schools must allow students to carry concealed weapons on campus.

The reason for the change was simple: to make schools safer.

Editor's note: In the wake of terrorist attacks around the world, many Muslims feel called upon to publicly defend their faith, a faith many say is not accurately reflected in the stated or assumed motivations behind such attacks. Writer Beenish Ahmed has struggled with this responsibility all her life and shared her thoughts in this essay published by Code Switch as news was unfolding of the attacks in Brussels.

So you walk into the new Korean joint around the corner and discover that (gasp) the head chef is a white guy from Des Moines. What's your gut reaction? Do you want to walk out? Why?

The question of who gets to cook other people's food can be squishy — just like the question of who gets to tell other people's stories. (See: the whole controversy over the casting of the new Nina Simone biopic.)

Washington Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is back in town and spent Thursday morning on a tour of the Clark County Jail.

She spoke with corrections officers about ways to better help inmates with mental health and substance abuse issues.

Officials at the jail told Herrera Beutler their facility is overcrowded, and needs more treatment options for inmates.

The jail's detox center was packed with a dozen cots as inmates dealing with addiction wait out withdrawal symptoms.

Big cities aren’t the only places to see works by major artists. Sometimes you have to head to a small town.

On a Tuesday morning, three classes of sixth-graders crowd into the Pendleton Center for the Arts to face down a selection of Chuck Close’s portraits, on view through April 29.

“Come on in, crowd around,” said Bonnie Day, the center’s coordinator of education and outreach, as she invited the students to cross the room towards an 111-color, screen-printed self-portrait, complete with the preeminent artist's trademark glasses and goatee.

Mike Pompeo, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, slammed WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange in a full-throated public denunciation Thursday before an audience for foreign policy specialists in Washington, D.C.
