/flash/

and I actually found a plan that I can afford."

Leonard Stern / Future Builders

"We've had people with chronic conditions and now they have insurance."

DESPITE A ROUGH START.

SUPPORTERS OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT ARE PLEASED WITH THE RESPONSE.

Sen. Angus King / I-Maine

just in the last few days, there were 500,000 people on the call centers on Friday and a million and a half on the website. "

BUT CRITICS STILL QUESTION WHETHER IT'S WORTH THE PRICE.

Sen John Barrasso / R-Wyoming

once this is all said and done what kind of insurance will these people actually have? Will they be able to keep the doctors that they want, and how much more is it going to cost them?

ONE KEY MEASURE OF SUCCESS WILL BE THE NUMBER OF YOUNG, HEALTHY PEOPLE WHO'VE SIGNED UP.

Marshal Lawler/Wesleyan Univ. Sophomore

"The more people we sign up, the more healthy people there are in the exchanges and the more likely that the system as a whole won't collapse."

BUT FOR THOSE WHO'VE BEEN STRUGGLING WITHOUT COVERAGE.

Margarita Merito / signed Up for Insurance

MISSING PLANE-PKG


THE U.S. PING DETECTOR, THE DEVICE FOR TRYING TO LOCATE THE BLACK BOX, WILL FINALLY LEAVE PERTH ON MONDAY AFTERNOON ON BOARD AN AUSTRALIAN VESSEL, "THE OCEAN SHIELD."

THE U.S. COMMANDER IN CHARGE OF THE PING OPERATION WAS ON HAND HERE IN PERTH TODAY, AND HE HAD SOME GOOD NEWS BUT ALSO SOME NOT SO GOOD NEWS.

THE GOOD NEWS WAS THE PING COULD LAST FOR UP TO 45 DAYS, WHICH MEANS THAT THEY COULD STILL FIND THAT BLACK BOX.

HE ALSO WARNED THAT THIS WAS A VAST AREA THAT THEY WERE LOOKING AT AND THAT IT COULD STILL TAKE YEARS.

"Right now the search area is basically the size of the Indian Ocean, which would take an untenable amount of time to search."

THE SEARCH THIS WEEKEND WAS THE BUSIEST YET, THE GREATEST NUMBER OF ASSETS.

TODAY WE SAW NINE AIRCRAFT AND EIGHT SHIPS IN THE AREA.

THERE WERE MULTIPLE SPOTTINGS OF DEBRIS INCLUDING WHAT WAS DESCRIBED AS FOUR LARGE ORANGE OBJECTS, BUT NOTHING CONFIRMED TO BE ANYTHING TO DO WITH MH 370.

TWO SHIPS, A CHINESE SHIP AND AN AUSTRALIAN SHIP, BOTH PICKED UP OBJECTS FROM THE OCEAN, BUT THEY DIDN'T TURN OUT TO BE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE AIRCRAFT EITHER.
