The announcement comes nearly a month after Woods publicly apologized for what he called "irresponsible and selfish" behavior, which he said included infidelity, and said he was going through a course of therapy to help "become a better man."

"The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta," Woods said in a statement.

"The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it's been a while since I last played."

The Masters Tournament is scheduled to take place from April 8 to April 11.

Woods has not played in a golf tournament since November 15.

You either love him or you hate him - it's a quality that filmmaker Michael Moore is very familiar with.

What do you want to ask Michael Moore?

The left-leaning liberal is about as controversial as you can get when it comes to his politics and films.

His range of hard hitting movies blasts everything from George W. Bush to capitalism.

However, Moore's first hand account and confrontational style of filmmaking has put four of his documentaries in the top ten highest grossing docos of all time and in 2002, Moore won the Academy Award for "Bowling for Columbine".

In 2007, Moore released his film, "Sicko" which investigated the crippling healthcare industry in the U.S. - a subject that Moore is extremely passionate about.

Today, as President Obama struggles to pass his very own healthcare reform, Moore has ripped apart his version of the bill, saying it would "be a death sentence for literally tens of thousands of people".

Here's your chance to ask Michael Moore your question.

Do you want to know how he would solve the healthcare crisis? What does he think of President Obama's handling of the country so far? Would he vote for President Obama again?

Blue fin tuna is the most prized sushi in Japan and each fish can fetch tens of thosuands of dollars on the market.

Should we ban the sale of blue fin tuna?

Should we ban the sale of blue fin tuna?

But Japan's insatiable appetite for blue fin tuna - a country that consumes 80% of the global catch - is eating the fish to near extinction, say activists.

The EU and the U.S. are formally seeking to ban the trade of the fish at the UN meeting called the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in Qatar.

"The Atlantic Bluefin tuna has been over fished to such an extent that only about 20 percent are left in the world's oceans," Karen Sack from the Pew Environment Group told CNN.

"These are the lions or tigers of our oceans and we need to make sure that we protect them now before it is too late."

While countries like the U.S. are supporting the ban, Japan is opposed to it.

A vote on the blue fin tuna is expected sometime early next week.

We want to know what you think.

Should we ban the trade of blue fin tuna to save help save the speices? Is a total ban the answer or should we focus on reducing over fishing?

Have you ever had blue fin tuna sushi? Would you continue eating it knowing it was endangered?

And please let us know from where you are writing.
