Israel’s Prime Minister is vowing that air strikes in Gaza will continue until Hamas militants end rocket attacks against the Jewish nation. Israel has rejected a French call for a cease fire. It’s not yet clear how or even if this figures into the Middle East conflict but someone shot two Israeli citizens at a mall in Denmark today. They’re both gonna be okay, one was shot in the hand, the other in the leg. So far police do not have a suspect in custody. And Democratic congressional lawmakers say they won’t accept any appointment made by the Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. The embattled governor says he is appointing former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to President-elect Barack Obama’s old Senate seat in Illinois. That of course is the very same seat that Blagojevich himself is accused of trying to sell or trade. The governor’s critics say he should resign so his successor can be the one to appoint a new senator. And the Tennessee sludge spill now has its first lawsuit. A real estate developer has now filed a 165-million-dollar lawsuit against the Tennessee Valley Authority. The developer says the sludge spilled into their land and was badly damaged, causing two home sales to fall through. Billions of gallons of coal ash, of course, spill through this area after a broken dam occurred in Knoxville last week. The party goers in New York’s Time Square should get a better look at this new and improved crystal ball when it drops in this evening. As many as one million people are expected to be there in Time Square for tonight’s celebration. The new ball has four times as many Waterford Crystal triangles compared to last year’s ball along with more than 32, 000 lights. Basketball great Charles Barkley has been arrested now on suspicion of drunken driving happened this morning. Police in Arizona say they stopped Barkley after he ran a stop sign. And Barkley declined to take a breath test then was taken to a police station in Scottsdale, that’s where authorities administered a blood test. Barkley was cited for driving while impaired and then released. And those are the headlines at this hour.

Here is a look at what's happening 可可英语 www.kekenet.com NOW IN THE NEWS. Hamas sources say Israeli forces have killed 3 senior members of Hamas' military wing. Israeli Prime minister Ehud Olmert says the objectives are to take out areas Hamas uses for firing rockets into Israel. Israel's bombing of Gaza has killed at least 480 Palestinians. Meantime, 24 hours after Israel began its ground incursion into Gaza, there is word of the first Israeli fatality from that operation. The Israeli Army says a soldier was killed by a mortar shell in northern Gaza. Palestinian medical sources say at least 37 Palestinians have been killed since the ground attack began. Hamas' rocket attacks have killed 4 Israelis. Oh, with mounting casualties in Gaza and a growing humanitarian crisis, International envoys are scrambling to try to end the violence. A team from the European Union is expected to arrive in Egypt today, before continuing to Israel and the Palestinian territories tomorrow. French president Nicolas Sarkozy will also head to the region tomorrow to meet Palestinian and Israeli leaders. We are seeing a wide-range of international response from protestors and demonstrators around the world. A CNN IReporter captured this pro-Palestinian protest in Afghanistan this morning. He says the group there is asking the US and the international community to put pressure on Israel to stop the attacks. Chicago and Los Angeles have seen pro-Israeli demonstrations. One group with flags outside Israel's consulate in downtown Chicago. In other news, search and rescue crews are on the job after a major earthquake struck near the north coast of west Papua, Indonesia. Government officials say at least 2 people were killed and
dozens were hurt. Doze ns of houses have been damaged, and at least 4 buildings have collapsed altogether. A tsunami warning was initially issued, but was lifted about an hour after the quake struck. President-elect Barack Obama is moving to the nation’s capital today. His wife and daughters arrived there yesterday. They will stay at the posh and historic Hay-Adams Hotel until the inauguration on January 20th. The president-elect's daughters, by the way, begin classes at their new school tomorrow. And those are the headlines this hour.

Here is what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS. Fighting rages in Gaza and Israel faces more Hamas rocket attacks. As the crisis deepens and diplomats hope a ceasefire is close, Israeli tanks are pushing deeper into Gaza and Hamas says it won't stop the fight. Israel is under pressure from the EU to agree to a temporary truce to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza. Palestinian medical sources say 530 Palestinians have been killed in the military operation. We could find out some time later today what likely caused the death of actor John Travolta's 16-year-old son. An autopsy is being done in the Bahamas. Jett Travolta died on Friday after he apparently suffered a seizure and fell in the bathtub at the family's vacation home in the Bahamas. The family also said, I should say, the family says he also had Kawasaki disease which is a heart condition that researchers believe can lead to convulsions and seizures. President-elect Barack Obama gets down to work in Washington today. He plans to meet with Congressional leaders to hammer out an economic recovery plan. A plan that sets to include among other things-300 billion dollars in tax cuts. Meantime, a senior Democratic official confirms that 可可英语 www.kekenet.com Obama plans a major speech on the economy this Thursday. A big showdown may be looming as Roland Burris, the man embattled Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich picked for senator, is expected to show up for work tomorrow, but Senate Democrats are still furious at the governor over accusations of corruption may pull that Senate seat from underneath Burris's optimistic. Senators will agree to see him tomorrow. Credit card companies are bracing for record losses. Experts predict the industry stands to lose 17 billion dollars this year. According to the Federal Reserve, less than 3 months ago, taxpayers were more than 1 trillion dollars in the whole.

The death toll climbs, and the crisis deepens in the conflict between Israel and Hamas. Here is what we know right now.An Israeli missile slammed into an elementary school where hundreds of civilians had taken refuge. Gaza city is now surrounded by Israeli forces. And Palestinian doctors are bracing for even more casualties. They say at least 555 people have been killed, and the Red Cross has declared a full blown humanitarian crisis. President-elect Barack Obama is laying the groundwork to offer 300 billion dollars in tax cuts for individuals and businesses. It's part of a massive stimulus plan. Obama wants it ready for signing within two weeks of his inauguration. Obama's economic stimulus plan is aimed primarily at job creation and consumer spending. Trying to get the rest of his team in place, Obama is also expected to name Leon Panetta as his choice for CIA Director. Panetta has no experience in the intelligence community, but he did serve as White House Chief of Staff under Bill Clinton. Retired Admiral Dennis Blair is expected the choice for Director of National Intelligence. He served in the National Security Council and was a military liaison with the CIA. Congressional lawmakers are ready to take their seats today and the man named to succeed
Obama in the Senate could face a rather ugly welcome. Senator nominee Roland Burris is a controversial pick because as he was known he was chosen by embattled Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Democratic leaders say it's not likely Burris will be seated today. Tough times are hitting some of the more successful automakers.
