Gulf oil disaster - BP seemed to be getting criticism from every angle as the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico entered its 45th day Thursday and every effort to stop the historic flow is still failing - and oil could begin to show up on Florida coast on Thursday. As the oil company gets increased scrutiny from Congress and President Obama, a grass-roots campaign dubbed Seize BP planned demonstrations in more than 50 cities to start Thursday. In the wake of the anger, BP's CEO Tony Hayward is appearing in an ad, saying he is "deeply sorry" about the disaster and that BP "will make this right."
Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, who is heading the federal government's response, said the real fix for the disaster will be a relief well, but that won't be working until August. Until then BP's next move will be to use the same sheer-cutting device that made a successful cut on the riser Tuesday. The only issue with that cutter is the rougher surface left by that cut will not accommodate the tight seal needed for installation of the lower-marine riser package that BP wants to use to stop the gusher. BP engineers now plan to use a different device called a "top hat" instead.

No single laboratory test can determine whether a person has lupus. CNN's Madison Park takes a look at what testing "borderline positive" actually means.
