Unrest in Lybia, EPA Tours Eastern Kentucky: Today on Here and Now

1:06pm: Opposition forces are in control of most of Tripoli, but Moammar Gaddafi's whereabouts remain unclear. The Pentagon believes he’s still in the country. The rebel National Transitional Council reportedly has a 70-page plan for leading Libya over the next few months, but there are many unanswered questions. Will they turn over Gaddafi and his son Seif to the International Criminal court for trial? And how much will they compromise with former Gaddafi loyalists? We’ll devote much of the hour to Libya coverage.1:35pm: Last week, EPA officials were on a tour of eastern Kentucky. They stopped in four communities, and spoke with residents who are concerned about the environmental impacts of mining. Our own Erica Peterson followed the tour and she’ll have an in-depth report.1:40pm With over 70% of the US youth population on Facebook, the gap that once existed between work and play is closing. What happens if you complain about work on a social media site? Should you 'friend' your boss? Can you be fired for online postings? It depends on what you say and how your boss accesses that information. Now some employers are developing behavior codes for online activity. Kabrina Chang, professor of business law and employment law at Boston University, decided to research the legal implications of firings that occur when online behavior meets the work place.
