Parthenon Marbles Move to New Home Phidias supervised the sculptures around the Parthenon during Athens' Golden Age. Christians defaced them in the 6 th Century AD when the building was made a church. In 1687, the Venetian Army shelled the Acropolis and blew up the Parthenon, where the Turks had been storing gunpowder. Then in 1802, the British Lord Elgin had some of the remaining sculptures removed, and since 1816, they've been in the British Museum . Today, a massive moving project began in Athens, where three giant cranes lifted two and a half tons of marble from the Acropolis to an ultra-modern museum at the foot of the hill as part of the effort to get the so-called " Elgin Marbles " back.
Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.
Trump's ethical conflicts pile up as transparency diminishes President Trump's refusal to reveal his income tax returns is just one example of a lack of transparency that could be hiding conflicts of interest. Other conflicts are already obvious from his appointments. And he's being sued for using his job to increase his profits.
Does 'hire American' mean fire a foreigner? US companies are allowed to hire employees from other countries with highly developed skills that can't be found here. President Trump says it's being abused as a way to find cheap foreign labor. We hear about the benefits—and the risks—of changing the H-1B program.
