MH370: Drone Sent Back Down

The underwater drone scanning the ocean for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 began its ninth mission Monday with "no contacts of interest" in its last eight, the Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre said.

The Bluefin-21 has scanned about two-thirds of the intended territory without finding any sign of the missing plane.

These efforts may be a main focus of the search, but they aren't the only part.

Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre announced Monday morning that up to 10 military aircraft and 11 ships would participate in the day's search for the Boeing 777 and the 239 passengers and crew on board.

The weather isn't making the task easier.

Tropical Cyclone Jack is circulating northwest of the search area. And while it won't hit directly, this system should increase winds and rains.

A Look at the "Boston Strong" Store One Year Later

For almost forty years, Marathon Sports has been a fixture of Boston.

But on April 15th, 2013, a bomb exploded right out front, and what happened next would make this place much more than a store.

Assistant Manager Kevin Dillon says within seconds the store became a makeshift emergency room and t-shirts became tourniquets.

"T-shirts that you’re looking at right now – we took them off the clothing racks and tried to wrap people up to try to stop some of the bleeding, but also just to comfort some of the people that were in that position... A lot of my colleagues were a part of that and we’re very proud to say they acted as they did on that day."

And they never stopped, reports CNN's Chris Cuomo.

What was once a store was now a symbol of resilience that captivated the nation: Boston Strong.

War Hero Rescues Woman Trapped Under Car

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a  war hero rescues a woman pinned underneath her SUV. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

James Yates was already a hero.

The Purple Heart winner, with tours of Iraq and Afghanistan, was actually on his way to an Iowa Barnstormers game to be honored.

But heroes never rest.

On his way, he happened to pass by Courtney Pearson.  She was trying to fix a brake fluid leak on her truck.

"I've had that jack under the car before, I didn't think it would be too much of an issue," she said.

"I had my kids out playing, as soon as the car fell they heard me scream, go find a neighbor go find a neighbor, somebody, anybody."

The person Courtney's kids found was Yates.

He jacked up the truck and Courtney escaped with only bruises.

Inside Politics Speed Read: Should Justice Ginsburg retire?

Here's our morning roundup of the big stories Inside Politics on CNN:

The justice and her plans: She’s 81, has had two bouts with cancer and has been on the Supreme Court for 21 years, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has made it clear she won’t be rushed off the bench.

It’s no secret that a lot of Democrats would like to see her step down.

There’s certainly no guarantee a Democrat will win the White House in 2016. And more immediately, there’s no guarantee that Democrats will keep their majority in the Senate in 2014. Both elections could complicate Democrats’ hope to replace Ginsburg with an equally liberal justice.
