NATO air cover has allowed rebels fighting against Moammar Gadhafi's forces to gain ground in the eastern part of the country. Meanwhile in parts of Syria, protesters set fire to offices of the ruling Baath party.
For the millions of teens (and, let's face it, adults too) who follow the Twilight movies, music is a key part of the experience. The soundtrack to New Moon, the second in the series of teen vampire films based on Stephenie Meyer's novels, features a song called "Possibility," in which a delicate voice sets the tone for a story of young love and yearning.
That voice belongs to Swedish singer Lykke Li. But on her latest album, Wounded Rhymes, it doesn't sound quite so delicate.
Pedro Martinez says that while painter Susan Miller-Havens worked on his portrait, she focused on his hands. She saw his long fingers and told him that he "used them to do art with my fingers."
As far as pitchers go, Martinez, in his 18 seasons in the major leagues, made some pretty amazing art with those fingers: The greatest right-handed pitcher of his generation, he won 219 games, had a career ERA of 2.93, struck out 3,154 batters and won the Cy Young Award three times.
