10 things to know for Tuesday, Oct. 23

The Associated Press

 

A daily look at breaking news, upcoming events and stories that will be talked about on Tuesday:

1. AMID CLASH, CANDIDATES FIND COMMON GROUND:  In their final debate, Obama and Romney both stress support for Israel, and both oppose sending U.S. forces to topple Assad. Now both candidates set out Tuesday on a sprint to the finish.

2. YOU SURE ABOUT THAT?: The AP’s Calvin Woodward examines Obama and Romney’s claims, separating fact from fiction.

3. HOW THE SPA SHOOTING SUSPECT GOT HIS GUN – DESPITE PRIOR VIOLENCE: Police say Radcliffe Haughton didn’t have to wait for a background check, because he bought his weapon from a private individual — two days after his wife obtained a restraining order against him that ordered him to turn in all guns.

4. WHAT APPLE HASN’T TOLD US ABOUT ITS NEW MINI IPAD: With the public getting its first look at the device Tuesday, many details are already known – except what it will cost.

5. ACCUSED USS COLE BOMBER SEEKS TO HALT GUANTANAMO TRIAL: Lawyers for Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri say that since the U.S. wasn’t at war at the time of the bombing in Yemen, the 47-year-old shouldn’t be tried at the U.S. base.

6. LANCE ARMSTRONG: HEROICS THAT NEVER HAPPENED: The Texan is no longer a seven-time Tour de France winner. His name has been erased from the record books.

7. WHY GREEN BUILDINGS ARE ON THE RISE IN PERSIAN GULF STATES: Oil-rich countries are realizing their fossil fuel supplies will someday run out and they should chart a more sustainable path.

8. SYRIAN REGIME AND REBELS CONSTANTLY ADAPT THEIR ARSENALS: As the civil war heats up, the opposition is getting more advanced gear while government troops resort to low-tech weapons for urban warfare. Meanwhile, a proposed cease-fire for a Muslim holiday looks highly unlikely as government forces attack a town in the north.

9. AN AWARD TO GET ELLEN DEGENERES DANCING: She receives the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, joining the ranks of Bill Cosby and Tina Fey.

10. GIANTS RETURN TO WORLD SERIES AFTER COMBACK AGAINST CARDINALS: San Francisco won its record-tying sixth elimination game of the postseason, beating St. Louis 9-0 in Game 7 of the NLCS.
