Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today (times in EDT):

1. AGGRESSIVE OBAMA REBOUNDS, ROMNEY HOLDS FIRM

AP’s Ben Feller described the crackling debate as an almost desperate competition of ideas and claims between two men who badly want the job.

3. WHO’S FIGHTING THE REGIME IN SYRIA’S LARGEST CITY

If they win, the rebels’ blend of poverty, religious fundamentalism and anger could define the future of Aleppo, and perhaps the rest of the country.
