On the Radar: Golden Globes, Tunisia revolution, Arizona shooting and Wiki

Golden Globes - The Golden Globes show launched the Hollywood awards season with 26 trophies handed out by an array of stars. For "Social Network"  and "Glee" it was a good night.

Take a look at who took home the awards, watch the winners' reactions, get a glance at the fashion and flair from the red carpet, and take a peek at our full gallery of stars on the big night. We'll also be looking at the reaction to one man of the hour - the host, Ricky Gervais - and whether his expected but over-the-top routine was hit or miss for the stars and critics.

Tunisia in crisis - A new Tunisian government could be announced Monday, one day after the country's army clashed with armed gangs and remnants of ousted President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's personal guard.

Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia on Friday after ruling the country for 23 years. His ouster followed weeks of protest over what Tunisians described as poor living conditions, high unemployment, government corruption and repression. Public protests continued Monday, as about 2,000 people packed into a major road in Tunis.

And as Tunisia struggles to come up with a stable government, others are watching carefully. Time.com takes a look at whether Tunisia's revolution will spread across North Africa.

Arizona shooting - The congresswoman shot in the January 8 mass shooting in Arizona reached another milestone over the weekend, as mourners said goodbye to one of her staff members and a retired construction worker who died shielding his wife.

U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was upgraded from critical to serious condition Sunday, eight days after being shot in the head.

As the case against alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner proceeds in another jurisdiction, experts tried to shed light on possible intentions behind the shooting. Two psychiatric experts gave their opinions on whether Loughner is evil or mentally ill. And we also take a look at Loughner in his own words.

More info from WikiLeaks? –– A Swiss whistle-blower Monday handed over what he said were secret Swiss banking records to WikiLeaks, the website dedicated to revealing secrets.

Swiss banker Rudolf Elmer handed two discs to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at a news conference in London. WikiLeaks could release the secret Swiss banking records in "a matter of weeks" if it can process them quickly enough, Assange said.

    He's got a Brit sense of humor, and if one doesn't understand that kind of humor, he's not going to be funny. I DO understand it, and he was funny at times, painful to watch in others!
