  • Romney Touts 2-Step Economic Plan In Cincinnati
    Mitt Romney and President Obama contrasted their economic visions in dueling Ohio events Thursday. In Cincinnati, Romney attacked Obama's record on the economy and talked about his own plan to lower taxes and cut regulations.
  • In Ohio, Obama Calls For 'Shared Vision' On Economy
    President Obama campaigned in Cleveland, Ohio, Thursday, where he gave a speech about the economy. The message was that the poor state of the economy is less the fault of Obama's policies and more due to Republican foot-dragging in Congress.
  • A Sail On The Nile Caps A Revolutionary Road Trip
    Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep offers final thoughts on his Revolutionary Road Trip through North Africa. We also hear from NPR's Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson and Leila Fadel, who will fill in for Soraya in Cairo next year.
  • Youssra El Hawary Scales A Wall With A Wink And A Smile
    A catchy, crazy little song for one sweet voice, accordion and recorder has enraptured a country — and more than one American listener.

    The Miami Heat held off a late rally by the Oklahoma City Thunder to win 100-96, tying the series.
  • Legal Help For The Poor In 'State Of Crisis'
    Amid a funding crunch, legal aid programs that help poor people with civil disputes — like evictions and child custody cases — are laying off workers or even closing their doors. At one Baltimore office, lawyers say the number of people needing help has gone through the roof in recent years.
  • Don't Think, Just Enjoy Bawdy 'Rock Of Ages'
    The new movie based on the Broadway show built on hit songs from the 1980s is a guilty pleasure.
  • Yammer Agrees To $1.2 Billion Sale To Microsoft
    Often called Facebook for the workplace, Yammer lets co-workers share files, message each other and organize meetings and events. Microsoft targeted it much like it did Skype, the video-calling company it bought last May for $8.5 billion.
  • Markets Encouraged By Plans To Calm Eurozone Panic
    Turbulence and anxiety in the Eurozone have helped make this a volatile week on the markets. Global central banks are bracing themselves for worse and are moving to avert market panic ahead of the Greek election. Reports say they're preparing to take coordinated action to help banks by pumping in funds.
  • China's Economy Cools, Perhaps More Than Planned
    The country's economy has not only been slowing down recently — it's been slowing faster than expected. That's due largely to overly effective efforts by Beijing to rein in earlier blistering, and unsustainable, growth. Many say the downshift will continue unless the economy undergoes serious reform.
