Hello again, everyone...
First of all, Isha Sesay is pulling double-duty today. So, she'll be presenting both editions of the I-Desk.
On today's rundown, we're expecting to go live to Nigeria, where the bloodshed continues. Hundreds are dead. And, there does not seem to be any end in sight.
Also, a HUGE online search coup by Microsoft and Yahoo. The two major internet companies are joining forces. So, what does that mean for you? And, what does it mean for Google, which has dominated online searches in recent years? Our CNN.com Correspondent, Nicole Lapin, is joining us to help figure things out.
Speaking of the internet, there's an on-going debate raging online about Pres. Barack Obama's birthplace. By all accounts, he was born in Hawaii in 1961. In fact, we have the updated computer printout of his "certificate of live birth" from Hawaii, to prove it. BUT, opponents on the right are raising questions about the legitimacy of those documents. They claim Mr. Obama was born in Kenya, which according to the U.S. Constitution, would not make him eligible to become president. We're bringing you both sides of this heated debate... and, we invite you to comment on it below.
That's it... See you tonight, at the I-Desk.
