John Edwards Not Guilty
John Edwards may be a liar and adulterer, but thanks to a hung jury in North Carolina, he is not a criminal. Edwards, his mistress, and those who allegedly gave him money to cover up the affair did not testify, and the trial ground to a halt. ABC's Bob Woodruff was there.
A Cry for Help
Now we travel to a little-known corner of Africa on the brink of catastrophe ... a country where a devastating food crisis is threatening millions of lives, many of them children. It's a situation that's grown increasingly desperate, and ABC's Bazi Kanani traveled inside the hunger zone to report on their cry for help.
Queen Elizabeth is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this weekend, and ABC's Katie Couric sat down with two men who are very close to her majesty: Prince William and Prince Harry. She spoke with William in London about his mother's 60 years as the Queen of England.
ABC's Katie Couric also met up with Prince Harry in Brazil while he was traveling through South and Central America. They spoke about what it's like to represent the royal family and about his grandmother's time on the throne.
The World Science Festival
The World Science Festival took place in New York City this week. As a product of the Science Festival Foundation, the event is an annual celebration and exploration of science.

ABC News National Correspondent Jim Hickey has the details from New York.
Head Injury Dangers
Since the days of leather helmets, football has been one of America's most violent past times, but now concern is growing about the long-term effects of invisible brain injuries ... and it's not just the NFL stars who are in danger. Some doctors say even young players are at risk. It's a revelation that has many parents wondering if they should they let their kids play football. ABC's Paula Faris has the details.
The Humanitarian Side of 50 Cent
We've gotten used to seeing Bono or Angelina Jolie traveling around the world to help people in troubled countries ... but 50-Cent? Looks like the often crude rapper has been doing a lot of good for the World Food Program, so they invited him to a refugee camp in Somalia ... the most lawless country in the world. Can being a do-gooder cramp his bad-boy style? Here's ABC's Dan Harris.
