st four-day annual start on record. stock indexes worldwide are also slumping. but why is this happening? alison kosik explains ... "hi there. an ugly day on wall street. we saw the dow fall 392 points. it is officially in a correction. that's a 10 percent decline from the dow's recent high. so what's going on? a lot of this is because of what's happening in china. suspending trading for the second time in four days and then the government there doing an about-face, taking away its circuit breakers, so we could very well see more selling in china tonight and that could still spread throughout the globe. all of the concern also has to do with its currency. china is in the process of trying to stimulate its own slowing economy, devaluing its yuan to try to make its exports cheaper. that could start a currency war, that's adding to the mood here on wall street. but to investors, that sends a message that china could be in worse shape than we may realize, and has sparked, once again, fears of a currency war. also making everybody anxious -- oil prices falling at one point today to a 12-year low. you look at over the past 18 months, oil has been in a slow motion crash. and

presidential candidate the u.s. are straightforward. the very first u.s. citizen born abroad as a natural legal experts agree with cruz, his fellow politicians don't seem so sure. presidential candidate i think is qualified and eligible to be the prime minister of canada.at least one house democrat has threatened a arizona senator john mccain, who faced similar questions in 2008 because he was born on a u.s. military base in panama, expressed doubts. arizona i think there is a question. i am not a constitutional scholar on that but i think it's worth looking into.even the white house commented. it would be quite ironic if, after seven or eight years of drama around the president's birth certificate, republican primary voters were to choose senator cruz as their nominee -- somebody who actually wasn't born in the united states.in washington, dianne
