Yassiry Gonzalez goes to bed early. But often she wakes up around 1 or 2 in the morning. And from then on, sometimes all the way through dawn, the New York City high school student is on her phone — on FaceTime with close friends, or looking through Instagram.

"Sometimes, I'm so tired that I'll just fall asleep in school." She estimates the all-nighters happen once or twice a week. And on the weekends? "There's no sleep. No sleep."

Looking back, 2018 may be the year that a critical mass of people started wondering: Am I spending too much time on my phone?

Accusing U.S. lawmakers of interfering in its affairs, Saudi Arabia has angrily rejected newly passed U.S. Senate resolutions ending U.S. support for the war in Yemen and laying blame for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the feet of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi Arabia denounced the U.S. Senate's position on Monday as being "based on baseless allegations and accusations" that distort the truth.

This month, a comet called 46P/Wirtanen is doing a dramatic fly-by, giving Earth an unusually good view of its greenish glow.

The timing of the comet's apparition — and its seasonally appropriate coloring — have led some to dub it the "Christmas Comet."

Planning a trip to to the Grand Canyon over the upcoming holidays?

You might want to have a Plan B...or at least bring your own trail maps.

While the Grand Canyon, along with the rest of the national park system, is expected to remain open in the case of a government shutdown, visitors centers at the facilities probably wont be. And some iconic sites, including the Statue of Liberty, may be closed altogether, if the park service follows past practices. That is of course unless Congress and the White House resolve their latest spat over funding the federal government.

New York City-based Lucky Chops found their love of music in school.

"We would get together after school and play different kinds of music than we were playing in our band classes, the jazz band and the orchestra," trombone player Josh Holcomb said. "We would kind of get together and play other songs we liked from other genres and apply them to our wind and jazz instruments. And so that's kind of how we started originally. And that was 12 years ago." 

Folk musician Jim Kweskin is visiting Alaska for his first time ever. Originally from Stanford, Connecticut, he’s now been to all 50 states thanks to touring.

“I loved folk music since I was a kid and I also loved early jazz,” he said. “I got into combining the two which is basically what jug band music is, old jazz played on folk music instruments -- is a simple way to describe it. Then I started traveling around the country learning songs “
