When Donald Trump was inaugurated as president, he started forcefully laying out a plan for his first 100 days that included full repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act, suspension of immigration from certain "terror-prone regions" and the lifting of "roadblocks" to let "infrastructure projects like the Keystone Pipeline move forward." "I've asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on Day 1 to restore our laws and bring back our jobs," Trump…

This month marks 350 years since John Milton sold his publisher the copyright of Paradise Lost for the sum of five pounds. His great work dramatizes the oldest story in the Bible, whose principal characters we know only too well: God, Adam, Eve, Satan in the form of a talking snake — and an apple. Except, of course, that Genesis never names the apple but simply refers to "the fruit." To quote from the King James Bible: And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat the fruit of the trees o…

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nikki Haley didn't wait to take office as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to break with the Trump administration's foreign policy stances. At her Senate confirmation hearing, Haley bluntly accused Russia of being complicit of war crimes in Syria -- going against the president-elect's talk of warmer relations with Moscow. Three months later, she remains boldly off-message. The post Trump's UN envoy often off-message, seems in his good graces appeared first on News…

On April 24, 2013, the eight-story Rana Plaza building outside Dhaka, Bangladesh, collapsed, killing more than 1,100 people and injuring thousands of others. At the time, the building housed five garment factories that manufactured goods for major retail companies in Europe and North America.

On the week marking President Trump's 100 days in office, his mood on Twitter was much less positive than it had been in the previous few weeks. A sentiment analysis shows these last few months have been a roller coaster of emotion. Trump's most negative week by far was his second week in office — just after he signed his controversial ban on travelers to the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries, and protests broke out nationwide. His most positive weeks included the confirmation and s…

I awoke to the sound of a mosquito buzzing near my ear. It was still dark out, and I could see the stars from my window, a rare sight in India when you are in the city. I, however, was at least a few hours from the nearest one. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure where I was as I was never given the address or directions, having been transported by a private car from Hyderabad, one of India's bustling tech hubs. I was spending a few days at the Prajwala facilities, a compound of several…

Buy a ticket in the Nenana Ice Classic and you could win nearly $300,000. All you have to do is guess when the ice covering Tanana River at the city of Nenana, Alaska will break up. Brothers Josh and Judah Ridgeway live in Nenana, a community of 375 people, about an hour southwest of Fairbanks. The brothers were hired by the Ice Classic to make regular ice measurements. They use a gas powered drill to bore through 3 to 4 feet of ice — though it's sometimes more. They do this at several l…

"Why am I doing this, again?" I've asked myself that question several mornings over the past few months as my stomach begins growling, usually after I smell popcorn in my coworker's office. He's on a strict 10 a.m. popcorn schedule that coincides with my strict 10 a.m. hunger pang schedule. I am following an intermittent fasting program as part of a clinical trial for people with multiple sclerosis. For the past five months, I have tried to eat only between noon and 8 p.m., and am allowed…

Sometimes, even professionally compassionate people get tired. Kristin Laurel, a flight nurse from Waconia, Minn., has worked in trauma units for over two decades. The daily exposure to distressing situations can sometimes result in compassion fatigue. "Some calls get to you, no matter who you are," she says. That burnout is what Laurel says she was trying to understand when she wrote her semi-autobiographical poem, Afflicted . The poem delves into the night shift of an emergency room…

A tornado has injured dozens and killed multiple people in Canton, a small city in the east of Texas Saturday. Capt. Brian Horton of the Canton Fire Department said authorities did not have an exact count on the number of people killed by the weather, and told reporters late Saturday numbers were "still coming in," but there were "maybe five casualties." The number could rise as search teams expand their operation in the morning, he said. At least 54 people went to hospitals and one person…
