10 Things to Know for Wednesday

Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about Wednesday:

1. WHAT LANDMARK ARMS TREATY HINGES ON

The U.N. pact is intended to keep weapons from falling into the hands of bad guys around the globe. But if big arms exporters — like the U.S. — don’t ratify it, its impact could be minimal.

2. HOPING FOR HILLARY

Clinton, perhaps as popular as she’s ever been, is taking steps that fuel fans’ hopes she will again run for president.

“The bottom line very simply is that ... the United States will not accept (North Korea) as a nuclear state,” the secretary of state says.

4. DEADLY LIAISONS

An ambush on the frontier that left 48 dead may be evidence of a growing alliance between two extremist groups — al-Qaida in Iraq and the Nusra Front in Syria.

5. HOW WHITE SUPREMACIST WENT UNDERGROUND

Days before he allegedly killed Colorado’s corrections chief, Evan Ebel disabled his ankle monitoring bracelet and fled.

6. FACEBOOK: MORE FUNCTION, LESS FUN

Many agree the social networking site has morphed into a vital service — like email used to be.

7. WHERE FUNDAMENTALISM IS SPREADING

In Gaza, Hamas decrees that boys and girls must attend separate middle and high schools.

8. ELUSIVE SURVIVALIST IN CUSTODY

Authorities nab a fugitive who years ago “just dropped off the face of the Earth” and hid out in the mountains of Utah.

9. A FATAL THRILL

Autopsies confirm “BUCKWILD” star Shain Gandee died of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning while out “mudding.”

10. WHO’S GETTING BANG FOR THE BUCK
