Mass evacuations in the shadow of America's tallest dam Two of the channels that drain the Oroville dam -- near Sacramento -- are damaged. Workers are trying to come up with a fix before a new set of storms move in later this week. In the meantime, nearly 200,000 people have been evacuated.
West Coast Bands Together over Climate Change Governor Brown describes a new pact between the states of California, Oregon and Washington and the Canadian Province of British Columbia as a " small but powerful first step " toward dealing with climate change. Governor Jay Inslee of Washington, says, "So simply put, I don't think it's too much to say that on the West Coast we intend to design the future, not to wreck it." Craig Miller is Science Editor at KQED , public radio and TV in San Francisco.
In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
Previewing James Comey's blockbuster testimony Former FBI director James Comey testifies Thursday in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, but his opening statement has been released. In it, he says he felt pressured by Donald Trump to declare loyalty to him and publicly clear him of any wrongdoing in the Russia investigation.
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
