This is Sunday night's edition of -- The Pulse.
Number five -- Lunar New Year. Folks around the world are taking to the streets to celebrate, with traditional Chinese style dancers, firecrackers, and food. This year marks the Year of the Snake.
Number four -- Shooting on Bourbon Street. Mardi Gras celebrations quickly turned sour after shots rang out Saturday night. One man is in critical condition, and three others were grazed by bullets. Witnesses tell police a fight started outside a strip club, and authorities are using surveillance video and cell phone video to help track down the shooter.
Number three -- The family of the late football coach Joe Paterno release a new report on their web site by former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh. The family accuses Penn State of a rush to judgment in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. Thornburgh found the university's report to be "factually wrong, speculative and fundamentally flawed." Paterno was ousted as Penn State head football coach and later died of cancer in January 2012. Sandusky was convicted on 45-counts of child sex abuse and sentenced to up to 60 years in prison.
Number two -- Nor'easter cleanup. The blizzard that pummeled northeastern states has drifted out to sea, and now the clean up effort begins. Hundreds of thousands are still without power, and as much as three feet of snow blankets parts of the coast. President Obama announced a state of emergency in Connecticut, which got some of the heaviest snowfall. But, travel is slowly coming back to life and power is gradually being restored.
Number one -- Authorities are now offering a $1 million reward for information leading to the capture of wanted ex-cop Christopher Dorner. Dorner is on the run after allegedly killing three people, injuring another two, and threatening revenge on several more. The manhunt for the former LAPD officer marks the biggest in Los Angeles police history. LAPD is also re-opening Dorner's case to show their department is fair and transparent.
