Tuesday on Worldview:

Protesters have taken to the streets again in Egypt as election day draws near. They’re angry about Hosni Mubarak's aquittal on corruption charges, announced in a verdict last week. The judge found Mr. Mubarak and his former interior minister, Habib el-Adly, guilty of failing to stop the police from killing demonstrators, but acquitted six of his top aides.

Worldview talks about the ongoing unrest with Emad Shahin, a professor of religion, conflict and peace-building at Norte Dame. He’s just returned from a trip to Egypt.

And, Worldview's arts and architecture contributor, Robert Price, tells us what architects and designers are doing to achieve buildings that produce as much energy as they consume.
