Bed Bugs Are Back and Biting In New York, they've infested the Time Warner Center and shut down high-end clothing stores. In Dallas, they've driven people out of apartments. Bedbugs — almost eradicated 50 years ago — are making a comeback. The National Pest Management Association says calls for bedbug eradication have gone up 81% in the past ten years. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the EPA have warned of a rapid resurgence. Dini Miller is Associate Professor of Urban Entomology at Virginia Tech .
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.
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.
