Once again, Hala is off. And, today, BackStory's Michael Holmes is joining us at the I-Desk.
Joining Michael will be Ivan Watson in Turkey. He's following those deadly floods, which have claimed the lives of dozens of people. We'll also show us some dramatic video of desperate people, caught up in the raging floodwaters.
Over in California, we're following the return appearance of Apple CEO Steve Jobs. He spoke at an event, just a few hours ago. It's his first appearance in public, since having liver transplant surgery a few months ago. We'll go live to a journalist, who attended the event.
Also coming to the I-Desk, Atia Abawi in Afghanistan, Nic Robertson in Libya, Ed Henry in Washington, and several others. It's a busy show!
And, at the end, find out if your city makes the list of the world's happiest places... Quick hint: Michael is VERY happy about the Top 5.
See you in a few minutes!
