Amazon’s Black Friday deals are worth staying in. Amazon posted a list of  Deals for Monday, November 19 through Saturday, November 24, along with the approximate time the deals will be active.

Thursday and Friday are the big days, of course, with standout deals including Dishonored for $25, Skylanders Giants for $39, $200 PS3 and Xbox 360 bundles, and the far, far too tempting $100 price for the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set.

CNN Skype interview with an Israeli citizen and a Palestinian in Gaza

A Skype interview between CNN’s Isha Sesay, Israeli citizen and Ashkelon resident Nissim Nahoom, and Mohammed Sulaiman, a Palestinian resident of Gaza, was suddenly interrupted by repeated bomb blasts.

The two interviewees live on the two sides of the Israeli, Gaza strip border, separated only by a 15 minute drive, the CNN anchor notes. After the first few blasts, Sulaiman tried to keep talking and ignoring them, until a louder one gets him offline and interrupts the call.

The simultaneous Skype interviews were set up by CNN as a way to underscore the dangers or regular people who live on the front lines of the conflict that renewed Wednesday with the assassination of Ahmed Said Khalil al-Jabari, the head of Hamas’ military wing. The airstrike has been followed by Hamas militants launching missiles towards Israeli cities as well as subsequent bombings by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in Gaza.
