Taking part in a live broadcast discussion with other young people in Europe on Friday, asking questions and raising issues that face young Europeans today. Would love to know what's worrying you or what you would question influential leaders with if you could!

The topic I'm most interested in is whether uni is worthwhile. What's your question?

Like a handful of other countries, including Germany and Denmark, Iceland has official rules about what a baby can be named. In a country comfortable with a firm state role, most people don't question the Personal Names Register, a list of 1,712 male names and 1,853 female names that fit Icelandic grammar and pronunciation rules and that officials maintain will protect children from embarrassment. Parents can take from the list or apply to a special committee that has the power to say yes or no. Read more here: http://apne.ws/WfT6RO

At least 7.4 million people across the East were without electricity. Airlines canceled more than 12,000 flights.

In a substantive showdown, Vice President Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan squared off in a fierce debate that was everything the presidential debate was not. There was nothing listless as Biden and Ryan clashed over practically everything.
