Also today, while lots of folks are planning a trip to the beach this summer, some are looking for an opportunity to explore the world. But before planning your next adventure, you'll need to some research and make sure your trip is a safe one. We'll explain how to do it.

Plus, bullying is a hot topic these days, but students at one high school are creating a trend that's bringing out the best in everyone.
