Editor’s note: Tune in at 8 and 10 p.m. ET for all the latest twists and turns in the Jodi Arias trial from Randi Kaye, and analysis from Jeffrey Toobin, Nancy Grace, and Mark Geragos.
It’s a momentous day in the Jodi Arias trial. Arias is answering questions from the jurors - the men and women who will decide if she lives or dies for the 2008 death of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. The questions were written on pieces of paper and given to Judge Sherry Stephens, who’s reading them to the defendant. The topics cover everything from her relationship with her parents to what happened the night she says she killed Alexander in self-defense. Here’s the AC360 411 break down of the trial:
CNN's Isha Sesay is now a (blushing) bride-to-be! Anderson Cooper makes a surprise announcement on behalf of the AC360 staff.
Anderson Cooper and the team at AC360° wish you and your family the best this holiday season, a Merry Christmas, and a very happy new year.
Thanks to everyone who posted a question(s) on our Facebook and Google+ pages! Because of your brilliant curiosity, we learned more about Anderson's interests and got to the bottom of that "feud" with Wolf Blitzer. And yes, there was a fair amount of giggling involved in this interview. Watch the video we recorded a few weeks ago, hosted by 360 producer Jack Gray, and inspired by your submissions. Then, check out the recap:
Anderson's reaction to Jack's follow up question:
We had so much fun during our last Hangout that we decided to spin it off into a semi-regular web series. Because, let’s be honest, there just aren’t enough ways for you to distract yourself on the Internet. We’re calling it the AC360° Afternoon Interruption.
Anderson will be joined by a rotation of CNN personalities for a 15 minute chat (or shorter if people start cursing and arguing, which we’re not ruling out). AC360° producer Jack Gray will moderate the discussion, which will include your questions – so post them here, Facebook, Google+ or tweet @AC360.
It’s going to be a departure from what you see on CNN. No news analysis, no politics. We want it to be a fun, relaxed show where your favorite CNN folks can let down their guard, kick back, and talk about everything from the crazy stuff that happened during the day to good books and movies to Wolf Blitzer’s new eyeglasses. You know, important things.
So submit your questions and interrupt your afternoon with us on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, right here on AC360.com.

When your boss is Anderson Cooper, what do you give him for his 45th birthday? Can you surprise a man who’s innately observant and passionate about finding the truth around him? Yes. If you’re sneaky and determined, then yes you can.
There were a few close calls when the surprise was almost spoiled, but thanks to some quick thinking, fast door slams, and the speed (and grace) at which Ben can wheel an event cake, the plans were kept hush hush.
I’m taking you behind the scenes so you can get a taste of what happened before and after the birthday ambush. This is a web exclusive, everyone.
You may not get a sense for the distinctive smell of our reptilian guests, but you’ll see how they try to bite the hand that holds them (initials A.C.). Special thanks to Turtleman for bringing the two snapping turtles, one weighing in at 50 lbs., and for teaching us that his “yiyiyi” call is more than just a gimmick – it makes his “soul feel better.”
It’s tough for our staff to surprise Anderson for his birthday. First, he knows it’s coming. And, he’s traveled the world, met the most fascinating people and lives a pretty exciting life.
Anderson Cooper is surprised on his birthday by the stars of Animal Planet's "Call of the Wildman" and TLC's "Cake Boss."
