In-Depth UCLA Study of 32 Families Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century : 32 Families Open Their Doors is the title of a new book, which exactly describes the contents. It's an inter-disciplinary study by archaeologists, anthropologists and other social scientists, documenting the daily lives of 32 families. For one week each, videographers roamed through the house, learning how space was used – and even went along when the kids were driven to school. We hear more from one of the authors and one of the subjects.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
