From NPR News in Washington I'm Craig Windham.

President Obama is seeking to build public pressure on lawmakers in advance of a vote on health care overhaul legislation by putting a personal face on the issue. The president is speaking at a senior center near the Ohio hometown of Natoma Canfield today. She is a self-employed cleaning woman who wrote to him saying she had dropped her medical insurance when premiums became unaffordable only to discover later she had leukemia. "I'm here because Natoma. I'm here because of the countless others who have been forced to face the most terrifying challenges in their lives with the added burden of medical bills they can't pay. " The president is calling on lawmakers to show courage and enact the health care measure.

Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd says there is another urgent need facing the country preventing a recurrence of the financial crisis by closing loopholes showing up the financial system and protecting consumers from risky lending practices. "The legislation I present today contains bipartisan ideas. And it is the result of a bipartisan effort. It does not as of yet enjoy bipartisan support. But we do need to act. And I will act. Every day we delay is a day we are unprepared for what s around the corner." Dodd notes that negotiators for the two parties were substantially in an agreement on nine of the bill s eleven sections but so far no GOP lawmakers have signed on.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan says the changes President Obama is proposing to make in the No Child Left Behind law part in Duncan s words pretty dramatic. The goal he says is to broaden the focus of the law beyond math and reading. Not only are we focusing just on school, we are focusing on school districts and focusing on states. And so there s much more shared responsibility and frankly shared accountability than anything that exists in prior. But the American Federation of Teachers says the proposal puts too much responsibility on teachers for school and students success.

Thailand's prime minister says he will not give in to the demands of as many as 100 000 anti-government demonstrators who are gathered in the capital. NPR s Michael Sullivan reports the protestors want him to resign and order new elections.

The demonstrators are giving Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva until noon to dissolve parliament. It didn t happen. In a nationally televised address, Abhisit rejected their demand but said he was willing to listen to their ideas. He didn t elaborate. Earlier in the day tens of thousands of Red Shirt protestors converged on a military base on the outskirts of the capital where the prime minister and senior members of the military were said to be gathered. Thai security forces made no effort to stop the procession nor did the demonstrators try to force their way inside. The protestors are now returning to their staging area near the center of the city. Their next move unclear. Michael Sullivan NPR News Bangkok.

Stock prices have turned mixed before the closing bell a slight uptake in industrial production has not been enough to fuel buying on Wall Street today. The Dow is up 13 points. This is NPR News.

Soccer great David Beckham is facing weeks in a cast and more weeks of rehabilitation after surgery in Finland today to repair one of his achilles tendons. NPR s Rob Gifford reports the surgeon says the tendon was totally torn, and Beckham will not be able to put on much strength on that foot for up to three months.

Thirty-four-year-old Beckham who s became one of the world s most recognized sporting stars has been hoping to become first England player to play in four successive Soccer World Cups. The four-yearly competition starts in South Africa in June. The collective groan of Beckham s injury will no doubt be heard in Los Angles, too, where Beckham is still on the contract to the LA Galaxy . And he is the highest paid player in US major lead soccer. He was temporarily on loan to AC Milan before the US soccer season gets started at the end of this month. Rob Gifford, NPR News, London.

Truck loads of sand bags have been delivered to neighborhoods in Fargo, North Dakota, where volunteers are ready to assemble barriers that will hold back the rising waters of Red River. Pat Zavoral who is the city manager in Fargo says there is an urgency to the work now because forecasters believe the river will crest sooner than first thought.
"We had accelerated all of our planning that so we had a place into an implementation lot. It is now that s what we act. "
The river is expected to crest to about 20 feet above flood stage on Saturday. Last year flooding along the Red River force the evacuation of thousands of people in North Dakota and Minnesota but communities say they are better compared this year.

More heavy rain today in New England aggravating flooding there more than 115 000 homes and businesses are still without electricity in the region.
