BY YIQIAN ZHANG ANCHOR JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource U.S. newsy analysis from Newsy. An explosion outside a Jewish synagogue in Santa Monica, California sent a 300-pound concrete block through the roof of the neighboring house. About 100 people were evacuated immediately. Police first identified the blast as an accident. However, they reversed that stance late Friday night and identified a suspect as more evidence was uncovered. And Los Angeles CBS affiliate KCAL has more on the suspect. “On your screen is Ron Hirsch, a transient who police say frequents the Chabad House in Santa Monica to panhandle there and in other synagogues around the Los Angeles area.” And ABC reports further details on the explosion. “Santa Monica police say they believe Hirsch may have constructed this pipe bomb by filling this four-inch pipe with some kind of explosive, then setting it in concrete inside a trash container. When it detonated Thursday morning, the concrete projectile bounced off the wall of the Jewish center, then tore a huge hole in the neighboring home, narrowly missing an 11-year-old girl inside.” Finally, a writer for the Santa Monica Patch spoke to the Anti-Defamation League, who says the incident probably was not an act of terrorism or anti-Semitism -- but area synagogues and temples are still on high alert until the case is resolved. “After police issued an alert indicating Hirsch is ‘extremely dangerous,’ the ADL sent an alert of its own to hundreds of Jewish institutions in the Los Angeles area. ...the reason for doing so was three-fold: to share information, to gather intelligence and to ensure the security of Jewish institutions.

BY ALEX SCHUPP ANCHOR CHRISTINA HARTMAN You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy. Just days after Twitter broke the news of Osama bin Laden’s death to the world, the social networking website is back in the spotlight. HILARY RUSSO, ANCHOR: “Twitter has made an offer to acquire TweetDeck for anywhere between 40 and 50 million dollars. TweetDeck is a popular third party software application used for Internet social networking services. According to Reuters, the cash-and-stock deal could close in less than ten days and would represent Twitter’s largest acquisition to date.” (FNN) The acquisition comes after what seemed to be a final agreement between TweetDeck and social media company UberMedia, but Twitter outbid its competitor. TechCrunch explains that Twitter needed to retain a dominant market presence over its rivals. “They simply couldn’t allow UberMedia to have so much market share in this space. The company has acquired UberTwitter, EchoFon and a number of other Twitter-related startups. Adding TweetDeck to the UberMedia stable of products would give them too much leverage...” But a columnist for PCMag argues the purchase is not an act of expansion, but a calculated demolition deal. “If the majority of Twitter users view their tweets though third-party tools … they’ll never see Twitter partner ads, promos, or Quickbars. Twitter loses control not only of the conversation, but the ability to monetize millions and millions of eyeballs and social activity.” According to a writer for GigaOM, Twitter’s relationship with third party developers is already strained, and defensive moves like this one only make it worse. “Many of the moves it has made — shutting down UberMedia’s apps, tightening its restrictions on the API, telling people not to bother making new clients, and so on — have not just ruffled feathers in the developer community but made some seriously question their relationship with the company.” A SocialMediaToday reporter explains Twitter’s decision to purchase TweetDeck was a forward-thinking plan, not a defensive act. “The move to buy TweetDeck might be seen as defensive…but others might view this as Twitter wanting to finally control its product, brand, [and] audience...” Though the acquisition is not yet official, TweetDeck users are already pleading, in 140 characters or less, to save the third-party app. Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource tech news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

Testifying before the House Ways and Means committee, acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller said, "I want to apologize on behalf of the [IRS] for the mistakes we have made," but added that the "foolish" mistakes were driven by a desire to be "more efficient", not by "an act of partisanship."

Lyrics below: Hard days made me Hard nights shaped me I don't know they somehow saved me And I know I'm making something out of this life they call nothing I take what I want take what I need they say it's wrong, but it's right for me I won't look down Won't say I'm sorry I know that only God can judge me And if I make it through today Will tomorrow be the same Am I just running in place And if I stumble and I fall Should I get up and carry on Will it all just be the same Cause I'm young and I'm hopeless I'm lost and I know this I'm going nowhere fast that's what they say I'm troublesome I've fallen I'm angry at my father it's me against this world and I don't care I don't care And no one in this industry understands the life I lead when I sing about my past it's not a gimmick, not an act These critics, and these trust fund kids try to tell me what punk is but when I see them on the street they got nothing to say And if I make it through today Will tomorrow be the same Am I just running in place And if I stumble and I fall Should I get up and carry on Will it all just be the same Cause I'm young and I'm hopeless I'm lost and I know this I'm going nowhere fast that's what they say I'm troublesome I've fallen I'm angry at my father it's me against this world and I don't care I don't care I don't care... and now I don't care I'm young and I'm hopeless I'm lost and I know this I'm going nowhere fast that's what they say that I'm troublesome I've fallen I'm angry at my father it's me against this world and I don't care I don't care. I don't care. I don't care. [I take no credit in the creation or release in this song this is purely for entertainment]

Picture this scenario: hundreds of millions of children go through their day thirsty, with no source of safe drinking water. A bottle of water costs a days wages. Huge corporations control water supplies while farm lands turn to dust. This is not an act of imagination. Rather, it is the future already upon us in many undeveloped countries. Maude Barlow, senior advisor to the United Nations on water issues, warns the world is running out of fresh water. To recognize the 41st Earth Day, NH Outlook interviews Maude Barlow and explores the uncertain future of water.

The clip reading Christine's fortune from Drag Me to Hell (2009) I pray to God none of my students see me here. The only class I'll be able to teach is, like, Hypocrisy 101. Yeah, there's so many things to choose from here. Unfortunately, not what I'm looking for, which is a weird little dried monkey head. Wait, no, never mind, he's got one. I am Rham Jas, seer. I'm Christine and this is Clay. But you probably already knew that, right? Just kidding. How can I help you? I would like to have my fortune read. Can you do that? I have the ability to see certain energies. Sometimes these energies are a foretoken of things to come. $60, please. Seriously? Yes. Sixty... Doesn't that seem a little steep for this sort of thing? If you're not serious, please go. All right. Come on, Chris. Wait, wait! I'll... I'll pay. No, you know what? You know what? I got it. I got it. There you go. Platinum card. Very good. Thank you. Here, here, baby. Thanks. Sure. Uh-uh. Please. Okay. So, you wish to know something of your destiny. Yes. Very good. Let's see what the fates have in store. You know, Freud said destiny was not an act of fate, but rather something created by our subconscious to control our conscious choices. That's true. But we cannot attempt to understand the world by intellect alone. Carl Jung. Yes. From his treatise Psychological Types. So... Jung, the New Agers' favourite psychologist. Because he wasn't afraid to bring God into the equation.

I don't think most people really understand how deadly these things are, just keep your eye on the huge slow truck on the left hand side. It looks as if he slows to let the military trucks pass by him, but when they do, BOOM. This DEFINITELY was not an act of good will. The explosion is huge.
