MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – From the arrest of a 10th terror suspect in Minnesota to the race for the Golden Globes, here’s a look at the top stories for December 10, 2015.

10th Terror Suspect Arrested

A 10th terror suspect is due in court Thursday.

Abdirizak Warsame, 20, is charged with providing material support to terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

He was arrested Wednesday night in Eagan.

The criminal complaint said he was, at one point, the leader of a group of young, Somali-Americans from the Twin Cities who tried to flee the country in April to join ISIS.

No Child Left Behind No More

No Child Left Behind will soon be no more.

President Obama will sign the Every Student Succeeds Act into effect Thursday. It’s an overhaul of the K-12 education policy and will end more than a decade of strict federal control over schools.

The new act focuses less on standardized testing and makes states responsible for fixing under-performing schools.

Nominations Out For Golden Globes

The Golden Globe race gets underway soon as nominations will be announced starting at 7:15 a.m. Thursday morning.

“Spotlight” starring Michael Keaton is a frontrunner.

So is the romance “Carol” starring Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett. Matt Damon’s “The Martian” is also a favorite.

Vikings vs. Cardinals

The Vikings are taking on the Arizona Cardinals Thursday night. They’re looking for redemption from their ugly loss to the Seahawks.

Kickoff is at 7:20 p.m. with a pre-game show starting at 6:30 p.m. right here on WCCO.
