Who won the lottery? – That question seems to be on everyone's mind after it was announced that two tickets, one sold in Idaho and another in Washington state, matched all six numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.
Early Wednesday nearly every Google trend dealt with the lottery. Now all people want to know is who are the two lucky people who will split the $355 million jackpot. So far, lottery officials haven't identified them. But once they do, their names are likely to become well-known.
Congress goes back to work – The new Congress convenes Wednesday, and the initial focus for Republicans, fresh off their 2010 midterm election victories, will start off symbolic, with the legislative meat to be served later.
House Speaker John Boehner recently laid out his vision for the upcoming session, vowing to make the "people's House" more transparent. His first order of business will be passing a new set of rules for the legislative chamber.
Republican and Democratic leaders then will launch the new Congress, pledging to make job creation their No. 1 priority. After that point, bipartisanship may be tricky.
Women fighters in Gaza – With faces covered and guns loaded, Palestinian militants are training among the sand dunes of Gaza. Shouts of "Allahu Akbar" – God is great – are followed by intense target practice. These militants are preparing to fight their sworn enemy, the state of Israel.
But there is a difference – they are women.
Training alongside men, they say they are ready to go into battle and are calling on more Palestinian women to join what they call the resistance against Israel. CNN was given rare access to some of these women inside Gaza. The militant group insisted the location be kept secret, so we were blindfolded in the back of a car and driven to a house. CNN's Paula Hancocks talks to Palestinian women, who explain why they are willing to die in a fight against Israel.
Jackson doctor's hearing – The pretrial hearing for Dr. Conrad Murray continues Wednesday as a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge decides whether there is probable cause to try him on an involuntary manslaughter charge in the death of pop star Michael Jackson.
The hearing, which began Tuesday, is expected to last two or three weeks, with 20 to 30 witnesses testifying. On Tuesday, Jackson's former security chief testified that Murray seemed not to know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation as he waited for paramedics to arrive at the singer's house on June 25, 2009, the day the entertainer died.
