The Biggest New Things in Los Angeles One of the most impressive exhibits of its kind will open publicly this weekend. Dinosaur Hall at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County contains fossil exhibits unique in the world, including a 25-foot long Triceratops with a skull weighing more than 900 pounds, and the Tyrannosaurus Rex Growth Series, featuring skeletons of the youngest known baby T-Rex, an adolescent and a young adult. The $135 million make-over required two familiar buildings, constructed in 1913 and 1920.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
