Five Things to Know for Your New Day – Monday, December 8

Eric Garner protesters get more creative. The British royals arrive in New York City.  And the U.S. fears violence over a torture report.

It's Monday, and here are the 5 things to know for your New Day.



They're here!: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will start their whirlwind three-day visit to New York City today.  William and Kate arrived  last night - minus a certain chubby-cheeked lil' royal.  The couple attended a private dinner last night, and will start a series of activities today, including a children's craft group in Harlem and an NBA game.



Carols and burnings: From the streets of California to the stores of New York City, protesters are making sure no one forgets the case of Eric Garner. But some are choosing to do so more violently than others.



Already blamed for deaths in the Philippines, Hagupit is tipped to move west across the country today, with sustained 80-mph winds and potentially devastating rains.



Authorities identify remains: The body of one of the missing Mexican students has been found and identified, and families of 42 others want to know where their loved ones are. Authorities have said they believe the students' remains were burned at a landfill, then placed inside plastic bags and thrown into a river.



U.S. boosts security: U.S. officials urged commanders worldwide to review their security procedures in advance of a Senate Intelligence committee's report on interrogation practices of terror suspects. A similar order was issued to State Department and CIA facilities around the world. The report could be released as early as Monday, sources told CNN.


There you go. All you need to know to get an early start to your morning.

    Re: British Royals. Boooo – go home elitist swine. The US should send a strong message that this concept is irreconcilable to the modern day world.
