The Pulse: World's Most Expensive Car & ISIS Recruiting in Europe

It's time for The Pulse!
You are looking at one of the most-expensive cars in the world. This 1962 Ferrari GTO Berlinetta was sold in California for 38 million dollars. That is the highest price ever paid at auction for a car! What makes it so unique? This car was previously used in a race that crashed and killed its owner. It was rebuilt in 1963 at the Ferarri factory, and ran in several other races. No word on the identity of the new owner or owners, though they obviously had money to burn!

Nascar's Tony Stewart will sit out a second weekend of racing as investigators probe a deadly on-track crash. Last week Stewart hit and killed a fellow driver during a dirt track race in New York. No criminal charges have been filed, but this weekend will be the second race Stewart is sitting out. The team announced Jeff Burton will drive the #14 car this Sunday in Michigan in his place.

Pope Francis led mass at the Daejeon World Cup stadium Friday while visiting South Korea. Prior to that, he greeted the nation's youth in his usual humble fashion. As part of "Asian Youth Day" the Pope had lunch with young people at a seminary and met with more youth at a shrine for Catholic martyrs. This is the Pope's first trip to Asia, nod to growing Catholicism outside Europe.

As ISIS charts its murderous course through Syria and Iraq - in Europe, there are worrying signs of support for the group now calling itself 'Islamic State'. Most recently, a stall set up on London's Oxford Street distributing leaflets calling on Muslims to pledge allegiance to the newly appointed Khaleef. A thinly-veiled reference, presumably, to the self-declared head of Islamic state. There are some 2,000 European recruits already in Syria - the largest contingents from France and Britain. On online message boards Britain's Jihadist wannabes can ask questions. One man asking whether you can choose the role of executioner when you're out there.

Police in Ferguson, Missouri, have released the name of the officer who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown, as well as details about a nearby-robbery moments before the incident. That's sparked a fierce response from the Brown family, as well as fresh fears of more violence. For more on this story - click on the video on this page.
