IN THE NEWS: WHERE'D THE INTERNET GO?

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- When there is just one road to your home and it gets shut down -- you can't get out and people can't get in. Imagine what happens if there's just way to get on the Internet -- and that goes away. That's what went down in Arizona last month -- vandals cut a cable, throwing thousands of people back to a time when there was no Internet to link everything from computers to financial transactions or even telephones. The situation pointed out a big problem for many areas: the lack of a backup Internet system. Because online service is mostly unregulated by the federal government or the states, it's up to ISPs to decide whether to build backup systems. But most industry insiders say that usually doesn't happen unless the Internet providers think it's worthwhile financially.

IN THE NEWS: "TEEN MOM 3" STAR HIT WITH REVENGE PORN

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The ex-boyfriend of a star of MTV's "Teen Mom 3" has been charged in a revenge porn case. Authorities in Florida say Shakiel Brown is charged with felony voyeurism -- after posting sexually explicit images of his ex -- Briana DeJesus -- on social networking sites. Authorities say he put the images on Instagram and Twitter after she refused to speak to him following their breakup. DeJesus says she had no idea Brown posted the images, which officials say were sex tapes. The videos have since been removed.
