News of the week


Here are the top news stories from the past week:


- About a week after saying his Twitter account was hacked, New York Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted he sent the infamous crotch photo, as well as other ones, and that he had engaged in online relationships outside of his marriage. Politicians and voters pressured the congressman to resign.


- Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley on Thursday signed an illegal immigration law that supporters and opponents agree is the toughest in the nation. The new law requires public schools to identify illegal immigrants, allows police to arrest suspected illegals and more. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Southern Poverty Law Center said they will challenge the new law in court.


- Delta took a publicity hit this week when Army soldiers returning from Afghanistan had to pay out of pocket to put all their gear on a returning flight. The soldiers posted a video on YouTube complaining about the incident, and Delta quickly moved to reimburse the soldiers, saying the fee was a mistake.


- Steve Jobs took the stage at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday to talk about developments, which include a new operating system (Lion) and the iCloud service. The iCloud is a storage system designed to work across multiple Apple platforms (e.g., iPhone, iPad and laptops).
