Fears of a second

recession have caused panic

in Europe's financial markets.

The severity of this recession will

cause more pain before it ends.

European Union

cannot bail out Greece.

You've seen the

government of Spain coming out

and saying we've had the same problem.

Portugal says the same thing.

There's some talk

that Italy could be in trouble.

US intelligence officials

are growing more and more concerned

that foreign operatives are surveilling

computer systems

that control America's infrastructure.

It's now clear

this cyber threat is one of the most

serious national security challenges

we face as a nation.

Then it might

have the ability to go in and cripple

financial networks, nuclear plants,

chemical plants,

all of which would have devastating effect.

North Korea has now joined

the Pacific Rim Cooperation Organization.

The group's formation is

a clearer warning that further intervention

in the region by the U.S.

and its allies will not be tolerated.

A South Korean TV station

reports that North Korean leader

Kim Jong II

suffered a stroke.

His third

and youngest son, Kim Jong-Eun

has been tapped to inherit power.

Promoted from a nobody

to high political and military office.

As a kid, he was really loved by his father

because he had a fit of anger.

He will now lead

the world's fourth largest army.

Groups are fighting against Russia's

government from within its borders.

Rebels were planning to increase

their violent campaign

as the country prepares

for the presidential elections.

Russia's pouring more troops

into the Georgian capital, Tbilisi.

Ex-Soviet Georgia

has become a focus of tension

between Russia and the West.

We're working to reset

our relationship with Russia.

U.S. soldiers are being deployed

with renewed conflicts in the Middle East,

South Asia and the Korean peninsula.

Critics suggest

this leaves our shores unprotected.

South Korea accused the North

of firing a torpedo at its Cheonan warship.

South Koreans continue to protest

against North Korea's attack

on Yeonpyeong Island.

Some are calling the

attack a crime against humanity.

North Korea

continues to act in a provocative

and belligerent manner.

There are consequences to such actions.

Fueling the fire,

the North has ripped up

non-aggression pacts.

This is an incredibly immature

regime in the North.

The rogue North Korean

dictator makes a wild threat

to wipe out the United States.

North Korea is like a spoiled child.

North Korea is a danger to the world.

What would

North Korea possibly hope to gain?

What will be the next step?

What is it that they want?

What are they preparing for?

So far, this quarter,

Eckert has got to make up some ground

and try to get in field goal position.

But with the clock running down

and no time-outs left,

Wolverines are in a tough fix.

Out of bounds!

- How did that one feel, b*tch?

- Get off him!

Hey, man, you got rocked.

He hits hard!

Matty, be careful.

Eckert! Thirty seconds left.

Just get us in field goal range!

Come on, kid, now, execute!

Empty left! Empty left!

How's he doing?


Your ass is mine, b*tch!

You hitting on me, 53?

Mac 53, Mac 53. Hut!

Eckert, you got to stop

with the cowboy sh*t!

If I did that,

I'd still be back on the 20, Coach!

Get Danny on the corner!

Tell him to get his ass out of bounds!

- Line! Line!

- Pick him up. Pick him up.

Lead your team, 9!

- Take us to the house, Eckert!

- Hut!

You got to stop the clock!

Take it out of bounds!

Clock is still running.

Field goal, Archer!

Coach, let me go for it!
