3. There is another recall involving General Motors. The company is recalling an additional 7.6 million vehicles due to ignition problems. The latest recall involves mainly older midsize cars and brings GM's total number of recalls this year to over 28 million.

4. Starting today through next year, all student loans offered by the federal government will have an interest rate increase of 0.8 percent. The change stems from a bipartisan deal brokered last year by congress and signed by President Obama in order to tie the rates to the financial markets.

5. Today team USA will take on Belgium in the World Cup. America advanced to the knockout round, despite losing to Germany last year. The game kicks off at 3:00 p.m. CST.
