Starting today, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will begin sending out Amber Alerts on Facebook's news feed. The alerts will include a photograph of the missing child and the location where the possible abduction took place.

Facebook has 185 million users in the U.S., and the notices will be tailored to location — so users will receive alerts about missing children in their area.

A report from NPR's Sonari Glinton says the F-150 is Ford's most important vehicle, and quotes Aaron Bragman, Detroit bureau chief for Cars.com, as saying the automaker's move to aluminum is one of the biggest gambles in the auto industry in years.

Cuba has reportedly released 36 dissidents from prison in the last two days, as part of the move to improve relations with the US. Activists, however, remain concerned over the future of those released.
