October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this means a wave of pink tutus and bejeweled brassieres will be rolling through the Treasure Coast for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer annual fundraising walk.

“It is an awareness walk. It’s a family event. It is not competitive. It is truly a celebration.”

The new body cameras worn by Ft. Pierce Police officers will be automatically activated when a weapon is drawn.  The action will active the cameras worn by all officers who are in the general area of the incident.

Dads, stepdads, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, foster fathers and all male role models are encouraged to take children to school Wednesday, Sept. 26.  Find out more by clicking HERE.

Heat indexes on the Treasure Coast have topped the 100 degree mark all week.  Here's some advice on keeping cool and a reminder to always "look before you lock."  For more information on dealing with hot weather click HERE.  To find out more about children and vehicle safety from Kids and Cars click HERE.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis "could" be considering a departure, Saudis can expect "severe punishment" for any involvement in the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and climate change is probably real, but not caused by man, President Trump said in an interview aired Sunday on CBS' 60 Minutes.

One of the last secrets from the Watergate scandal could soon be revealed.

A federal judge in Washington has ordered the National Archives to review key documents that have remained under seal for 44 years and prepare for their release.

Those papers, known as the "road map," helped advance the impeachment effort aimed at then-President Richard Nixon.

They've been under wraps since then but scholars say they're newly relevant today as President Trump faces down a different investigation.

An era of a new kind of CEO activism appears to be in full swing. Think of Nike CEO Mark Parker's decision to feature ads with Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback turned racial justice activist. Or Dick's Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack, who in February pulled assault-style weapons from store shelves and raised the minimum age to buy guns to 21.

Corporate leaders, who historically stayed silent on policy, are increasingly speaking out. Their statements are directed at consumers, but employees are also responding and it is affecting morale and company culture to recruitment.

Over the past year, companies have been rolling out electric scooters by the thousands in cities across the country — from Washington, D.C. to Milwaukee, to Lubbock, Texas. People download the app, find a nearby scooter and then just unlock and ride. But as these shared scooters have spread, so have concerns about safety.

When Monica Cosby, Tyteanna Williams and Celia Colon talk about the years they spent as inmates at women's prisons in Illinois, their stories often turn to the times they would be disciplined for what seemed like small, even absurd things.
