The Pulse: John Boehner to sue President Obama

Number 5:
A teen gets an idea from Facebook and let's just say, he got burned.
A 15-year-old said he didn't know what to expect when he poured rubbing alcohol on his chest and lit it.
He said it's something called the "fire challenge," but videos he watched never showed the after effects.
Now he has second and third degree burns on his body and is hoping by getting his story out, he'll stop this social media scorching skin trend.

Number 4:
Getting to the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 is more of a quest than a mission right now for international investigators.
Teams were denied access for a fourth straight day because of heavy fighting in eastern Ukraine.
Ukrainian officials said rebels have booby-trapped the crash area with land mines.
That report is now under scrutiny .
Some media crews were able to use an alternative route to reach the site.
They found an area littered with belongings from passengers and wreckage from the plane.

Number 3:
US Gross Domestic Product grew a whopping 4% in the second quarter.
GDP is the best measure of the economy's health, a tally of all US goods and services, and that 4-percent is even better than what economist's were expecting.
It also means that the deep contraction earlier this year can be blamed mostly on bad weather.
Consumer spending, which makes up about 2/3rds of economic activity, ramped up this spring, spending money on big ticket items like cars, appliances and furniture.

Number 2:
The GOP led house has approved a resolution authorizing speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama.
The vote was 225 to 201.
Republicans say the president's executive actions to change Obamacare and make other policy decisions on his own are unconstitutional.
They believe it's Congress' job to make or change laws.
The White House responded saying the lawsuit will "waste valuable time and potentially millions of taxpayer dollars."

Number 1:
The Peace Corps is pulling hundreds of its volunteers from three African nations hardest hit by an outbreak of the Ebola virus.
The humanitarian agency says 340 of its workers will temporarily leave Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
The evacuation comes as two Peace Corps volunteers were put in isolation after coming in contact with someone who later died of the Ebola virus.
And the virus is claiming more lives.
