to strip power from the democratically elected government in syria. that was a big one on the table yesterday as president obama sat down with russia's president vladimir putin. they said that they had commonalities. the president said that they agreed that the violence needs to end, but not a lot of specifics there, especially when it comes to whether or not syria's president needs to go. elsewhere, new evidence was released in the trayvon martin murder case yesterday, and it included jail calls from george zimmerman to her husband, proving she lied when she said she and her husband were broke. nbc's jay gray has that story. >> we are hearing more from the man who shot and killed trayvon martin. six recordings of jailhouse phone calls between zimmerman and his wife shelley. they talk about their love for each other, confidence in his

to at least $130,000 when bond was set. that bond was revoked and zimmerman was sent back to jail, his wife was arrested on the charge of making a false statement. still, his attorney has down played the allegations. >> though they weren't honest with judge lester at first, that it was disclosed four days later. the money was transferred and taken care of. >> a new bond hearing for george zimmerman is scheduled for next week. and here's your first look at some of the other news going on around america today. in florida, it was just an amazing sight. doctors removed a three-foot spear from a teenage boy's head. he accidentally impaled just before heading out on a spear fishing trip. surgeons had to actually use a metal cutter just to be able to place his head in a cat scan device. they say the 16-year-old is now out of intensive care and recovering. unreal. an arizona massive flames and numerous small explosions

♪ visa. supporting athletes and the olympic games for 25 years. join our global cheer. put me at 5 timesd out myes and greater risk of a stroke, years. my first thoughts were about my wife, and my family. i have the most common type of atrial fibrillation, or afib. it's not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but my doctor put me on pradaxa instead to reduce my risk of stroke. in a clinical trial, pradaxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) reduced stroke risk 35% better than warfarin. and unlike warfarin, with pradaxa, there's no need for regular blood tests. that's really important to me. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition like stomach ulcers, or take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners, or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines.
tell your doctor about all medicines you take, any planned medical or dental procedures, and don't stop taking pradaxa without your doctor's approval, as stopping may increase your stroke risk. other side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. pradaxa is progress. having afib not caused by a heart valve problem increases your risk of stroke. ask your doctor if you can reduce your risk with pradaxa. in here, great food demands a great presentation. so at&t showed corporate caterers how to better collaborate by using a mobile solution, in a whole new way. using real-time photo sharing abilities, they can create and maintain high standards, from kitchen to table. this technology allows us to collaborate with our drivers to make a better experience for our customers.
