Good morning, happy Friday to you, from the CNN center in Atlanta, I'm Reggie Aqui. Here is what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

A political mystery finally solved, this morning multiple Democratic sources tell CNN that New York Governor David Paterson has chosen the woman you see there, Congresswoman Kirsten Gillibrand to fill Hillary Clinton's vacated Senate seat. Gillibrand represents New York's 20th Congressional District and worked on Clinton's 2000 Senate campaign. Paterson is scheduled to make the official announcement at noon Eastern CNN.com/live will take that for you when it happens.

President Obama meets with Congressional leaders to talk about his economic stimulus1 package. House Committees already approved portions of the 825-billion-dollar plan. The full House could vote on it next week, but not everyone is on board. You see Republicans are working on their own alternatives. They want a better idea how the plan is gonna impact jobs.

In speaking of jobs, motorcycle maker2 Harley-Davidson is laying off more than 1000 workers, closing some facilities and consolidating3 others. And another sign of U.S. economic woes4, Internet search engine Yahoo says it won't be giving its workers salary increases this year. That decision is part of a cost-cutting plan. In October, Yahoo announced plans that cut about 1500 jobs.

North Korea's leader is looking noticeably thinner. State TV shows these pictures today of Kim Jong-il, meeting with a delegation5 from China. The 66-year-old has rarely been seen since he reportedly suffered a stroke last August.

And a starting surprise overnight, Congolese rebel leader Laurent Nkunda is now in custody6 in Rwanda. Nkunda has been on the run from Congolese troops. When Nkunda crossed the border, Rwandan police snapped him. The surprise in all of this is that Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo worked together. You see the two countries have been bitter rivals since the Rwandan genocide.

Back here in the States, Tennessee voters have rejected a proposal that would have made English the official language for city business. Immigrants make up about 10% of Nashville's population. Critics said that it encourages discrimination. Supporters of the proposal say it would have encouraged them to learn English.

 That's a quick look at your headlines right now. Please stick here with us at CNN and CNN.com/live for more on these stories and your updates throughout the day.
