10 Buildings that Changed America Why did Southdale shopping center and the relatively obscure Vanna Venturi House in Philadelphia make the cut of a top ten list of game-changing American buildings? How come San Francisco's Ghiradelli Square almost bumped the Walt Disney Concert Hall? And where was Louis Kahn's Salk Institute? These and more are questions raised by 10 Buildings that Changed America , a PBS special airing this weekend, produced and written by Dan Protess, and hosted by Geoffrey Baer.
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.
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."
