FROM Peggy Orenstein
'Girls and Sex' Teenage girls are more empowered today than ever before. They’re told they can do whatever boys can do. They’re encouraged to study science and math, to become designers, athletes, artists or entrepreneurs. They’re told to be proud of who they are and to take control of their own lives. But what about their private lives -- their sex lives? Well, that’s a different story as Peggy Orenstein found out. She’s a journalist and author and her new book is called Girls and Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape .
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.
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.
