As the death toll continues to rise in the Bahamas, we look at the devastating impact that Hurricane Dorian has had on some its islands with Ellison Tommy Thompson, deputy Director General of the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism. Facebook is expanding into online dating. Many wonder why it took so long to roll out and others have their concerns over privacy.
