Syria Peace Talks Break Down as Assault on Aleppo Begins 6 MIN, 13 SEC

So-called Syrian "peace talks" have broken down almost before they got started. The UN mediator asked for a pause in the violence to allow for humanitarian aid. Instead, the Syrian army launched a major offensive — supported by Russian bombardment. Patrick McDonnell was in Geneva. He's Beirut Bureau Chief for the Los Angeles Times.

The Politics of Feminism: It's Not All about Gender 34 MIN, 30 SEC

Democrat Hillary Clinton would be the first woman president, but many self-styled "feminists" are not supporting her candidacy. Some advocates of women's rights back Bernie Sanders, while Republican Carly Fiorina insists that she and other conservatives are also "feminists." The idea has evolved from the suffragettes to Roe v. Wade to Betty Friedan to Beyoncé. Different opinions between and within generations could make a difference in this year's primary elections.

Amazon Is Opening…Bookstores? 8 MIN, 46 SEC

The Internet shopping giant Amazon may have a surprise for retail customers. Famous for driving traditional bookstores out of business, last year Amazon opened its own brick-and-mortar outlet in Seattle. Now, it appears to be planning a chain of stores for customers who want to walk in and thumb through the pages.
