One Massive National Problem that Can Be Solved: Food Waste America's ability to produce food is one of the major achievements of modern science and industry. It's almost too successful, as no less than 40% -- almost half — is wasted. There's waste in farming, transportation, processing and distribution. But the most wasteful place of all is the American home. Do you understand what those "sell by" or "use by" or "best by" dates really mean? Probably not, because the answer is different in different places. We hear what can be done to waste less up and down the food chain at a time when one in six Americans don't have enough to eat.
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?
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?
