The Short List

  • Moktada al-Sadr reappeared in Iraq, but for how long and for what reason people aren't sure.

  • Nobel prize winner Muhammad Younis is under fire from the Bangladeshi government and there are concerns he could be removed from his leadership role with Grameen Bank.

  • Robert Gibbs is stepping down as Press Secretary in early February, which is part of a broader staff shuffle at the White House.

  • The United Nations reports a sharp rise in food prices, but the situation isn't as dire as the number would suggest for now.

  • An investment unit inside Goldman Sachs declined to get in on the Facebook deal, in part due to the implied valuation of the company.
