• Clashes intensify in the Syrian capital, opposition activists say: "For the third straight day, fierce clashes erupted in the Syrian capital Tuesday as fighters braced for a major showdown in the pivotal city, opposition activists said.'The battle for Damascus is coming,' said Abdulhameed Zakaria, a Syrian army colonel who defected and joined the rebel Free Syrian Army."

Multiple people shot at Alabama bar: "Multiple people were shot early Tuesday at a Tuscaloosa, Alabama, bar, police told CNN. The shooting occurred about 12:30 a.m. at the Copper Top Bar, Tuscaloosa police Sgt. Brent Blankley said. He would not confirm how many people were injured or their conditions."

• Google's Marissa Mayer is named CEO of Yahoo: "Google's first female engineer, Marissa Mayer, has made a career out of bucking expectations - and she did so once again on Monday by announcing she will leave Google to be the new CEO of Yahoo, the struggling company that once was Google's main competitor."

LeBron James helps U.S. basketball team dispatch Brazil after poor start: "LeBron James scored 30 points and the U.S. rallied from an early 10-point deficit to beat Brazil 80-69 on Monday night in its final exhibition game on home soil.

    According to a recent investigation published in the U.K. Guardian, top figures in the “regime-change” coalition — most notably the Syrian National Council (SNC) — have intimate links to the highest ranks of the world elite: the shadowy Bilderberg conference, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Goldman Sachs megabank, billionaire financier George Soros, and, of course, the U.S. government. It is all out in the open, too.

    Since this is so "out in the open", why haven't we seen anything about it from the main stream media?
