Every weekday morning, we'll hit the top five stories of the day and clue you in on a few other buzzy items.
1. MARK ZUCKERBERG
A truly worldwide web:
You're connected. It's a seamless part of your life, but you do realize you're in the small minority, right? Most of the world doesn't have access to the Internet.
Facebook's billionaire founder Mark Zuckerberg wants to change that. Five billion more people will have access to the Web and e-mail, he says. Zuckerberg imagines a world in which everyone has the "same ability to share their opinions and speak freely - I think that would be a much better place." (It might also mean a billion more pictures of cats and status updates about dinner).
Can he do it? Well, he certainly has used his clout for good before.
2. HANNAH ANDERSON
A new twist:
There was a time when the Hannah Anderson abduction case seemed clear-cut. But every day seems to bring a new revelation.
This morning, we learned that James DiMaggio's family wants a sample of her DNA and her brother's. Why? They want to know if DiMaggio fathered them!
We also learned that Hannah was seen sitting in DiMaggio's car 20 hours before he went on his alleged criminal spree. Then there's the $110,000 insurance policy he left -- naming Hanna's grandma as beneficiary.
3. SYRIA CIVIL WAR
U.N. investigators just arrived in Syria a few days ago and it looks like they have a brand new claim of chemical weapon use to look into this morning.
Opposition activists are saying hundreds were killed today in the Damascus countryside and that chemical agents are to blame. They posted some very disturbing videos.
And a doctor told CNN many of the unconscious victims were convulsing when they were brought in.
Lies, countered the Syrian government. It's all an attempt to steer the UN inspectors from their jobs, it said.
4. NSA LEAK FALLOUT
Were Miranda's rights violated?:
British officials justify the nine-hour detention of the boyfriend of a prominent journalist, saying they have the right to act when they think someone has "highly sensitive stolen information" related to terrorism.
But David Miranda, the partner of Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, says police never, not once, asked him about terrorism. He also says he wasn't allowed to talk to his lawyer.
Greenwald told CNN's Anderson Cooper last night the incident makes the British government look "thuggish." He and Miranda are suing to get back a computer, some memory sticks and a cell phone.
5. GRADE SCHOOL GUNMAN
Cue the gun debate:
Hundreds of little school kids in the Atlanta area run for cover as a gunman fires his AK-47. They all make it safely while the shooter tells workers to call a TV station with a chilling message: Watch as I kill lots of cops.
