Nicole Bass, left, tries to stay warm while waiting outside of Best Buy in Evansville, Ind., on Thursday, Nov.  24, 2011.  Bass got to the store about 11:30 a.m. on Thursday and estimates that she is about 25th in line. She's hoping to get a 42-inch television for $200 when the store opens at midnight. This weekend, many stores will for the first time use midnight openings along with the usual bevy of deals as they try to lure consumers, whose appetite for good-buys has been increasing since the Great Recession.

Navy ships are capable of a variety of military actions, including launching Tomahawk cruise missiles as they did against Libya in 2011.
