Syrian Forces Fire on Thousands: Forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad trained their guns on thousands of protesters Friday as Syrians demonstrated for regime change. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the gunmen fired on crowds in the city of Hama and another nearby town.
Romney Gains Ground in OH, FL: The race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney continued to heat up this week, with a new poll showing that the Republican has caught up with the president in the swing states of Ohio and Florida. Obama pulled ahead in Pennsylvania, however, according to the Quinnipiac University poll. 
Chen Offered University Fellowship: In a deal that may bring an end to careful negotiations between the United States and China, blind activist Chen Guangcheng has been offered a university fellowship, American officials said Friday. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement Chen and his wife and children have been made an offer by an American university, and that the Chinese government should hold to its earlier indications that it would allow Chen to travel abroad for study. 
Calif. Pension Fund Sues Walmart: In what may be the first sign of serious blowback for Walmart after a bombshell New York Times report last month, the United States’ second-largest pension fund said it is suing the company over allegations of misconduct in Mexico. The California State Teachers’ Retirement System holds more than 5.3 million shares of Walmart Stores Inc. 
Report: (Only) 115,000 Jobs Added in April: Only 115,000 jobs were added to the American economy in April, according to the jobs report released by the Department of Labor Friday morning—the smallest gain in six months. That’s significantly fewer than the 154,000 jobs that were added in March, according to today’s revised report.
