This is Saturday's edition of -- The Pulse.
Number five -- Boeing said the test flight of its 787 Dreamliner was uneventful. The flight lasted a little more than two hours and the FAA allowed the test so Boeing could assess the in-flight performance of the aircraft's lithium-ion batteries. Those batteries have been at the center of several problems, including a fire, that led the federal aviation authority to ground the entire Dreamliner fleet.
Number four -- A rally in Florida honoring Trayvon Martin. The teenager would have turned 18 earlier this week, but nearly a year ago, Martin was shot and killed in Sanford, Florida. George Simmermann claims he shot the teen in self-defense. Friends, family and supporters marched for peace, chanting "I am Trayvon Martin."
Number three -- A bus overturned when the driver lost control on a road in California, hitting two other drivers. The crash killed eight people and injured more than 40 others. Now, the U.S. Department of Transportation has now ordered the company to stop running buses, calling the company an "imminent hazard to public safety."
Number two -- Police are continuing to search for the former LAPD officer suspected of killing three people. They are looking for Christopher Dorner in the San Bernardino Mountains in Southern California using helicopters and armored personnel carriers, and have been trudging through knee-high snow with rifles at Big Bear Lake. Dorner is suspected of killing two people in Irvine on Sunday and shooting at Los Angeles area officers on Thursday. One of those officers died. In a manifesto, Dorner promised to bring "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" to police officers and their families. He said it was the "last resort" to clear his name and retaliate at the LAPD over mistreatment.
Number one -- The Nor'easter. At least six people have been killed in a blizzard that struck the East Coast and is now making its way out to sea. The storm dropped snow at a furious rate of up to four or five inches an hour, and parts of Connecticut saw total snowfall as high as 38 inches. The blizzard also knocked out power to more than 635,000 customers.
