High-Speed Train Breaks Ground, Changes to California Eggs, and New TV

We kick off the new year with a look at two big California stories: First, a look at the status of the high-speed rail line between Los Angeles and San Francisco that breaks ground tomorrow. Then, what do California’s new egg regulations mean for the farming industry and for your brunch bill? Next, in our weekly TV roundup, a slew of new shows are coming to the small screen in 2015. Moving to the big screen, Madeleine speaks with “Birdman” writer-director Alejandro González Iñárritu about the film’s critical and commercial success. And finally, how and why are two rock climbers attempting to scale a sheer, 3,000-foot granite wall in Yosemite National Park?
