From the CNN center in Atlanta, hello everyone, I'm Catherine Callaway, so glad you are checking in with us. Here is a look at what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

The nation's unemployment rate rose to its largest reading since 1983. Unemployment stood at 8.9 percent in April, up six-tenths of a percent from the previous month. In the mean time, the Labor1 Department reported that employers cut 539,000 jobs from their payrolls2 in April down from 699,000 from March, and the best reading since October.

Well Drew Peterson, the prime suspect of the disappearance3 of his fourth wife Stacy has now been indicted4 for the murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio. Peterson was arrested yesterday near his home in a Chicago suburb. He will be in court for a bond hearing this afternoon. He has denied any wrongdoing in Savio's death or in Stacy's disappearance.

Pope Benedict XVI landed in Jordan earlier this morning to begin a Middle East tour. His week-long trip will also take him to Israel and the Palestinian territories. It is the first papal trip to the region since Pope John Paul II made a similar pilgrimage some nine years ago.

Well, this is not your typical high school science project. 5400 students, parents and teachers went to the extreme at Coors Field in Denver trying to illustrate5 extreme weather in Colorado. They were trying to clench6 the Guinness World Record for the biggest science project. They did some explosive experiments and some hands-on activities, demonstrating the science of weather, that's kind of class everybody likes.

All right, KFC's free grilled7 chicken offer was apparently8 a little too finger-licking good. Some restaurants actually ran out of chicken. A KFC, can you believe it? This was after Oprah Winfrey told viewers about the internet coupon9. KFC has released a statement apologizing to its customers and is now offering a rain check.

Be sure in stick with CNN.com 24/7 for news from around the world and we will have updates for you right here throughout the day.
