 President Barack Obama is honoring the nation’s top police officers. At Rose Garden ceremony at the White House, the President praised the winners of a National Police Association Award for officers who showed courage and in the line of duty.

"We will be forever in debt to those who wear the badge, to men and women with deep sense of duty and willingness to serve and sacrifice on our behalf.”
He also says they represent the quite courage found in officers across the nation.
Mitt1 Romney discussed his own family and offered a defense2 of Christianity in a commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia. He said there is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian3 conscience and action. The presumptive Republican presidential candidate barely mentioned his Mormon faith. * sustained applause when he said marriage is relationship between one man and one woman.
A group of veteran civil rights leaders have written an open letter, embracing President Obama’s support for same sex marriage. But NPR’s Alison Keyes tells us the issue remains4 divisive for the black community and the rest of the nation.
The letter signed by NAACP chairman Emeritus(名誉退休者) Julian Bond and civil rights icon5 Reverend Joseph Lowery among others says they concur(同意) with Mr. Obama’s view because ‘we can’t fight to gain right for some and not for all.’ But some African American faith leaders, such as Reverend Michael Waters of Dallas, Texas, the median in the black community believe as he does that the same sex marriage undermines marriage. Waters told NPR’s Tell Me More, “I do not find President Obama’s stance(立场) on marriage to be same sex marriage to be compatible with Christian teaching, tradition and authority.” A new gallop6 poll finds that 39% of Americans say the President’s support of same sex marriage will affect their votes.

The reporter and photographer went missing in northern Italy province in early March. And their families were not permitted to speak with them until last week.

Facebook is updating its privacy policy just days before its initial public offering. As NPR’s Steve Hen reports the move will allow Facebook * to use information that connects about its 900 million users to target ads across the internet.
Facebook at Friday was updating its privacy policy in response to an investigation9 by the Irish Data Protection Authority last year. Facebook’s European headquarters are based in Ireland. And officials there had asked Facebook to become more transparent10. But the changes will get Facebook more freedom to use information that connects about its users to target and sell ads on other websites, something the social network hasn’t done before.
