NEWZ033 I Want a Computer Pen

Elections in Venezuela; first black supreme court member in Brazil; student massacre in Nigeria; Syria crisis; mining strikes continue in South Africa; Nobel peaze price coming up

This week the Newz team begins back in Venezuela to discuss what happened with the elections over the weekend. From there we go over to Brazil where the first Black Supreme Court President has been appointed. Some terrible news from Nigeria where students were massacred last week. While up near the Syrian border, the US Military is concerned about chemical weapons and has deployed a force to Jordan. Following up on the South African Mining Strikes, workers have rejected the latest offer from the major gold companies. And finally today, it is Nobel season, so Tim and Mark are making their Peace Prize predictions.
