Shopping malls in Madison, Wis. made headlines recently –and disappointed some local teens — when they imposed unusual curfews. According to the new rules, young people under the age of 18 are not allowed to enter the malls without a parent or guardian who is over 21 after 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Mall managers justified the ban, saying groups of teens have been causing problems on weekend nights, and the ban is designed to prevent disruption. But some teens and parents disagree with the strict measure, claiming it interferes with a teenage tradition of hanging out with friends and is unnecessarily punishing well-behaved teens.

Mall curfews are in effect in over 100 shopping centers across the U.S. We want to know what you think — should malls have curfews for teens? Vote and tell us your opinion in the comments section below. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show.

A solar eclipse is one of the most fascinating natural phenomena that people can witness. And if you happen to be lucky, you may even witness the rare event that is a total solar eclipse.

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly between the sun and Earth. A total solar eclipse  occurs when the sun, moon and Earth are in direct line, and the moon casts a large shadow onto Earth’s surface. Watch the NASA video below to get a better understanding of the science behind the total solar eclipse.
