In 'Chasing Coral,' the race to document death of corals Coral reefs support a quarter of all ocean life, but they’re disappearing at an alarming rate. Last year, a third of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef died. Conservationist Richard Vevers’ effort to document the death of the corals is the focus of “Chasing Coral,” a new documentary by the creator of “Chasing Ice.” Images above courtesy of Netflix
Accusations of lying fly between James Comey and White House During his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey accused President Trump and other White House officials of lying when they said the FBI was in disarray and its staff had lost confidence in him. President Trump’s lawyer said Comey was wrong -- that the president never asked for his loyalty, and never asked him to back off the investigation into former NSA director Michael Flynn.
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.
