You’ll find all the breaking news of the day here, from big stories like earthquakes and elections to interesting notes on the naming of the world’s richest man and Charlie Sheen’s return to his sitcom.

There’ll be posts from yours truly and the staff of CNN at large to give you the latest from the CNN Wire, plus the scoops and interviews and insight that make this a really fun and interesting place to be. You’ll know when we have live streams of events and videos of news can be posted within minutes of them coming in.

    We have wondered about the Muslim people's efforts to free themselves from colonial and Western sponsored oppression. Here it is in Egypt. These are the heroes and they cannot be blamed for any religious fanaticism. They are praying and dancing in Tehrir square demanding freedom from a tyrant's rule who is supported by the old colonialists. Hundreds of thousands risking their lives, surrounded by tanks and plain-clothes policemen on horses and camels attacking them and attacking the media. What an example Egyptians have presented before a mostly indifferent world , an insensitive Europe and opposed by other kings and dictators. CNN's role under threatening conditions also should be commended.

    My name is Tamer Abdelmalek. I am an Egyptian American. I was born in Alexandria, Egypt. I came to the U.S. when I was 13 years old. That was 23 years ago. I am calling for all Nations to pray for Egypt (the Mother land). Thank you in advance.

    We all fiddled while Rome burned. The world is running out of oil. As the supply decreases we will see the price go up and up until wars begin for the remaining supply. The question really is are we all going to wake up before we get there?
    When are we going to leave these B.S. stories and focus on survival?

    According to the Mayan calender everything stops in 2012 (in May, I seem to recall) so now might be the time to change things while there is still time left. And if it does'nt end in 2012 at least things were changed. It's called a revolution because it does'nt stop. Something to consider.

    THEY SHOULD USE LAGRE AMOUNTS OF DRY ICE TO COOL REACTORS water is a liquid and will fall out of the fuel rod pools but dry ice will remain in them

    I THINK MY IDEA would be a sustainable idea that would work 100 hunderd times better than water

    the SEA WATER around the plant, how many sieverts in it. The 40 tonnes of H20 they spray each time is running back to the sea after douching the holding tanks. you better watch your sardines for the telltale greenish glow...

  13. Think outside the box people. Listen to this.

    Ok . First we should do what the president said. Learn from this. I have lots of great ideas like Build it under ground already. with gravity fed tubes for water. never run out and no power needed. A reactor really is just a huge boiler with a generating turbine on it. Simple concept really. How about they make updates to homes and businesses near by so they seal up tight and alarm you if theirs a threat. they already distribute pills to the neighborhood. How about A containment zone with not one but six vessels to capture radioactive matter . Make it like you would already have a lot going on. asteroids anyone? that would devastate a plant and so on. We have no one willing to give their help to go inside their kamikaze style. How about those r.o.v robots and u.a.v.s. Nothing their to fight a fire with right. How about you two twin guys who made the rip saw tank thing. wake up. We all need to band together . All nations and ally with each other on all planes. Make this Earth not America or Russia. crazy i think not. We are not neighbors unless they live on the moon. They could use solar power on it or wind as well. Their are 5 reactors in MI where i live. They frighten me so i learned all about them. Don't be afraid. We can over come this you know. How about that crazy end of the world thing. Its our own fault. We don't love the planet like Indians did anymore. Did you even know that their is a thing called yuca mountain. We don't even have room for the waist we get from our plants now. We are very close to a new way to recycle the waist. a new reactor design. How about some way to attract the radiation to keep it at bay. Lots of ideas. it could easily be cooled by the earth itself through geothermal means. basically all our energy saving things in one huge package. Reactors are the wave of the future. We need to build a ship to fly out of harms way and we need the reactor to power said vehicle. If we shot some dna into space in a capsule would any one find it and bring us back. I think so if they could. This is the way to do it. find me cnn i want an interview im going broke in MI. Really
