With the Big Delay Almost with Us, Is It Time to Panic? If you love to hate the 405 through the Sepulveda Pass, try living without it. That's what the Westside of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley will have to do from 7pm tomorrow, when the ramps shut down between the 10 and the 101, until 5am Monday morning. What does the frenzy over " Carmageddon " say about transportation planning past, present and future?
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences. On the second half of the program, we hear about cuts in Obama-Era civil rights programs called for by the Trump Administration's first budget plan.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
What happens when America retreats from the world?
