One person still missing in Arkansas flooding, governor says

Langley, Arkansas (CNN) - One person remained missing Monday from last week's flash flood at an Arkansas campground that left 19 dead, but "there's still a possibility there could be others," Gov. Mike Beebe told CNN.

Rescuers found a 19th body over the weekend about half to three-quarters of a mile downstream from the campground, Arkansas State Police Capt. Mike Fletcher told reporters. Eighteen of the 19 bodies recovered so far have been identified, Fletcher said.

Scientists say 'smarter' brains faster, more efficient

(CNN) – Whether you've been called book smart or street smart we'd all like to think that we're intelligent. But what does being "smart" really mean? And how do you get there? In our special series, "Are You Smart," Alina Cho took an in-depth look at every aspect of intelligence.

Program Note: IQ tests aren't the only way to judge smarts. In fact, some say emotional intelligence is much more accurate in determining whether or not people will succeed in life. Never heard of emotional intelligence? Watch American Morning tomorrow for part two of our series, "Are You Smart?"
