Kite flyers, picnickers, and Ultimate players treasure Seattle’s Gas Works Park--but beneath its sparkling grass lies a toxic legacy of its industrial past. Puget Sound Energy is now working with public officials to clean up the mess.

The famous towers and pipes of Gas Works Park were once part of a coal gasification plant that lit up early Seattleites’ homes. The landscape architect who designed the park tried to clean up the pollutants left behind. But there weren’t enough tools in the 1970's toolbox. So, today, there are still benzene, arsenic, lead, and other pollutants in the soil, groundwater, and lake sediment.

Ching-Pi Wang, with the Department of Ecology, says the city of Seattle is taking a first step to g…

    The man who carried out a deadly attack near Britain's Parliament was known to police and intelligence services, and had previously been investigated, Prime Minister Theresa May says. Speaking in the House of Commons Thursday, May said the man was British-born. "Some years ago, he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism.

  11. The Forces Driving Middle-Aged White People's 'Deaths Of Despair'

    In 2015, when researchers Ann Case and Angus Deaton discovered that death rates had been rising dramatically since 1999 among middle-aged white Americans, they weren't sure why people were dying younger, reversing decades of longer life expectancy. Now the husband-and-wife economists say they have a better understanding of what's causing these "deaths of despair" by suicide, drugs and alcohol. In a follow-up to their groundbreaking 2015 work , they say that a lack of steady, well-paying…

    We are in the midst of a quiet revolution in school discipline. In the past five years, 27 states have revised their laws with the intention of reducing suspensions and expulsions.

A new paper from Max Eden, a senior fellow at the conservative-leaning Manhattan Institute, argues that this is all too much, too soon. In New Y…
