The Changing Face of Charity In the aftermath of last summer's sudden fad for the victims of Lou Gehrig's Disease, American charities were struck with “Ice Bucket Fever.” People raised $115 million for the ALS Foundation — a charity that took in less than $3 million in August of last year — by dumping ice on their heads. But the exercise in viral giving was not sustainable for humanitarian fundraising. Charities that go viral are not always cost effective. Why do people donate to one thing and not another? Can Social Media help lift the level of giving above the tiny percentage of GDP, where it's languished for years?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
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.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
