Is Boeing's Dreamliner as Environmentally Friendly as Promised? When Boeing rolled out its 787 Dreamliner this weekend, it staged a global event of its own, linking partner-sites in Japan and Italy as well as Everett, Washington. The 787 is a major investment in plastic--to increase size, while lowering weight and requiring less fuel--at a time when the airline industry is both expanding and taking heat for its impact on the environment. Stanley Holmes, Seattle correspondent for Business Week magazine, has more on the fastest-selling commercial airplane in history, even though it won't make its first flight until September.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
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?
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
