Israel said Thursday it has called up another 16,000 reservists, allowing it to potentially widen its Gaza offensive against the territory's Hamas rulers in a three-week-old war that has killed more than 1,300 Palestinians and more than 50 Israelis. The new call-up follows another day of intensive fighting, in which tank shells struck a U.N. school where Palestinians were sheltering and an airstrike tore through a crowded Gaza shopping area. At least 116 Palestinians and three Israeli soldiers were killed Wednesday alone.

With the upcoming release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee has revealed who he think would win in a fight between the Dark Knight and Man of Steel. Lee chided to the Boston Herald, "Oh Superman." He added, "he’s indestructible." Lee continued stating that since Batman relies on gadgetry, weapons, and means other than his own; he doesn't stand a chance toe-to-toe with Superman. Firm in his belief, Lee concluded, "If this is real, a fight between Superman and Batman, there’s no way you’d bet on Batman." The comic legend wisely added, "[Superman] can do anything." But poor Bruce Wayne can't, caped crusader or not.
Jurors in the Colorado theater shooting trial reached a decision Monday on whether to keep the death penalty as an option for gunman James Holmes. The jury deliberated for less than three hours. On Thursday, Holmes' parents made an emotional plea for their son's life because he is mentally ill. During the sentencing phase, the defense called a court-appointed psychiatrist who previously testified for the prosecution. He determined that Holmes knew the difference between right and wrong and was therefore legally sane. But Dr. Jeffrey Metzner also said severe mental illness and delusions drove Holmes to kill, rather than hatred or a desire for notoriety. Metzner added, "having psychosis doesn't take away your capacity to make choices. It may increase your capacity to make bad choices." This sentence will be announced later on Monday.
