The CNN Daily Mash-up is a roundup of some of the most interesting, surprising, curious, poignant or significant items to appear on CNN.com in the past 24 hours. We top it with a collection of the day's most striking photographs from around the world.
Alleged victims continue to testify in the trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, accused of sexually abusing 10 boys over more than a decade. A now 28-year-old man known as Victim No. 4 testified:
He treated me like a son in front of other people. Outside of that, he's treating me like his girlfriend.
These musicians are thinking well outside the box. They call themselves "a classically trained garage band." Listen:
Talk about your alternative form of transportation. A Minnesota couple is using a mule-drawn wagon to take the slow, scenic route across the country, CNN affiliate WCCO reports. Is that some kind of rebel flag they're flying?
CNN columnist LZ Granderson expanded on a provocative graduation speech by teacher David McCullough Jr., saying parents do children a disservice when they seek to shelter the young 'uns from disappointment. Many of our readers had opinions on the matter also.
Because everyone got a trophy in soccer and football and everyone got a 1st place ribbon in dance class does not mean that will happen in real life. Children have to lose sometime in order to be a good loser as well as a good winner. Kids need to learn how to deal with disappointment, because the truth is there is a lot of it in real life. Parents teach your children to work hard and take responsibility for their own actions. Teach them to stand on their own two feet financially. Teach them if they want something in life they have to earn it, because in the real world no one will just hand it to them as you have done.
Another commenter put it more succinctly:
I learned more from my failures than from my successes.
CNN iReporter Philip Dahlheimer, a conservative independent from Henderson, Nevada, says that for the economy to really succeed, manufacturing jobs need to be brought back to the United States. And he has a personal story behind his reasoning: "My manufacturing job of 20 years was lost due to our factory going to China." But it doesn't end there; he says discrimination is limiting his opportunities to bounce back.
Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, is scheduled to testify Wednesday before the Senate Banking Committee about the bank's billions of dollars in trading losses that it reported last month.
Hundreds of new Internet domains will be proposed on Wednesday, including .lol, .xxx and .porn. Not all will be approved, and the ones that are will take at least until 2013 to start rolling out.

Pls., tell us why you waited 10 years before reporting this crime. Really. Did you keep your girlfriendliness to yourself? Like, did you speak of being RAYPED to ANYONE? What did they say you should do? Keep dating coach, or what?
SO, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
Even in gradeschool, I treated this one girl like a girlfriend. We held hands, and even kissed. (playing spin-the-bottle) Did you and boyfriend Jerry play?
I don't know, but I never felt like i was being trated like a girlfriend by my abusers. Likening a raypist to a boyfriend? Are you sure he forced himself on you? Or is this statutory raype where like when a 20 yr. old gets caught with his 15 yr. old girlfriend or a 30 yr. old fem teacher gets caught with a HS senior.
What's the matter with you??
Seriously, you're not blaming the victim here, are you?
Not graphic enough for you, or what?
Best guess....$$$ was involved.
@ banasy, gmta, i was thinkin that same thing. What a moron!
Victims often feel shame. They take deep hurt to the grave.
Re kid heroes. Any team sport player may not be the MVP, or team captain etc and won't be singled out for an award, but that kids efforts should be recognized for the dirty work he or she performs as a taxi squad pretending to be the opposition during practice sessions. These players get banged up, yelled at, and ridiculed all the while making the MVP's and the teams so much
better. Most give their all. Maybe a pat on the back. After youth sports they may attend MIT and save the world?
Something tells me you are speaking from experience, Tony. Were you getting smacked around by the starting squad while I was sitting in the library, reading Arthur C Clarke and picking my nose?
I was on the starting HS squad....scoring touchdowns. BUT my first two years on the practice squad I got th*mped quite a bit.
Well, I learned to play chess and how to work the film projector.
Oh, the A/V dude, huh, BOMBO©?
Every school had to have them...
I operated the film projector too; I also made popcorn and sold it.
My first-grade girlfriend had pigtails, and I planned to marry her.
@ @Victim No. 4:
I think that these teenagers were so frightened that they were afraid to tell anyone, even later. I was afraid to tell about the violence in my home, and I was ashamed of it.
I was afraid too, until I grew some hair on my balls and started becoming a man. At the age of 15, I went to the authorities and filled-out a police report. To have not to have done so would have implocated me in the coverup that's still going on.
Yes, even youngsters know to report a fire. Especially a fire burning their own family down.
And don't say I'm wierd. There are millions like me who reported family abuse to the proper authorites rather than keeping it secret forever, or waiting utill university.to tell.
Statute of Limitations ring a bell?
