  • Anti-U.S. Protests Expand As American Victims Return
    Audie Cornish has a round-up of the protests that broke out across the Middle East Friday, apparently in response to the U.S.-made film mocking the Prophet Mohammed.

  • Romney's Critiques Of Obama Like Reagan's Of Carter
    Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says President Obama's foreign policies have sent "confusing messages" to the world.

  • Week In Politics: Chicago Teacher Strike, Libya Attack
    Audie Cornish talks to regular political commentators, E.J. Dionne of The Washington Post and Brookings Institution, and David Brooks of The New York Times. They discuss the Chicago teachers strike and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.
  • It's Hard To Tell La Familia You're Gay
    A new national campaign called Familia es Familia is hoping to help make coming out easier for LGBT Latinos. While the majority of Latinos are accepting of gays and lesbians, foreign-born and evangelical Latinos are less tolerant and remain opposed to same-sex marriage.
  • New School Year Brings Tough Lessons In Spain
    Budget cuts have hit public education hard — with larger class sizes, pay cuts for teachers, and increased fees for books and school lunches. In some cities, there's a fee just to eat a bag lunch in the school cafeteria. All told, funding for schools in Spain is slated to be reduced some 20 percent by 2015.
  • Indian Cartoonist Charged With Sedition
    There is a growing controversy in India after a satirical cartoonist was arrested for sedition. The man has since been offered bail, but his original detention raises questions about freedom of speech in India.

  • Revisiting 'Life' Magazine's 'Take-Over Generation'
    In 1962, Life magazine ran its version of a "who's who under 40" list — a special issue it called "The Take-Over Generation." Many of the 100 young professionals profiled went on to prominence in their fields. Three men reflect on how America has changed since they were featured in 1962.
  • More Protests Erupt After Weekly Prayers In Egypt
    Egypt's powerful Islamist Muslim Brotherhood organization is walking a fine line in trying to appease Washington, D.C., in condemning the eruption of deadly regional violence over an anti-Muslim film while also appealing to hardcore demonstrators calling for action against the U.S. At the last minute, the Brotherhood cancelled nationwide protests over the film and called instead for something contained to Cairo's Tahrir Square.
