    Trump caps off a long day by letting coal companies dump waste into streams.The president’s unhinged 77-minute press conference wasn’t the only news he made today. After an exhausting fracas with the media, he popped back into the Oval Office to repeal an environmental regulation restricting coal companies from polluting waterways with mining waste. Trump signed a bill undoing the so-called Stream Protection Rule...

    Russia's cruise missile defies Cold War agreement, officials say

    Russia has deployed a surface-to-surface cruise missile that U.S. officials say violates a Cold War treaty that bans intermediate range nuclear missiles in Europe, CBS News’ David Martin has confirmed. Russia deployed the ground-launched weapon system in December at the tail end of the Obama administration. The Obama administration complained about the December violation, but Russia ignored the complaints and continued to test the missile.

    Wind power reaches 100K job milestone

    The number of jobs supported by the wind industry has cracked the 100,000 mark, according to new data from the U.S. Department of Energy. As Energy Central reports, the milestone means wind power now employs more workers than nuclear, natural gas, coal, or hydroelectric power plants. And one out of every four of those wind workers are employed in the state of Texas. And wind doesn’t appear to be slowing down, either. According to an earlier DOE report, the U.S. could add almost 400,000 more wi...

    How Psychologists Determine Whether Someone Is Faking Insanity

    For the past three months, I’ve been covering a Manhattan murder trial that might finally solve the mystery of what happened to Etan Patz, the 6-year-old boy who vanished on his way to the school bus in 1979. In my time in the courtroom, several questions I’ve heard have stuck out. Like, “Do you have any major problem communicating with other planets?” And, “Do you sometimes have strange feelings in your body? Do these feeling only occur on Tuesdays?”

    I’ve quit as shadow minister over article 50 to follow the true will of my people

    Sleepless nights, cold sweats, recurring nightmares. No, not pregnancy this time – it’s the emotional turmoil that has accompanied so many votes in the House of Commons. Maybe I was naive. Before being elected as an MP, I knew there would be difficult decisions to make – policy compromises or funding trade-offs with no way of satisfying everyone. But I hadn’t realised how emotional it would be. Without exception, every time I vote, I do it with my local constituents in mind. From finding...

    Britain tells EU: end-March deadline to trigger Brexit will stick

    Britain told EU peers it would stick to an end-March deadline to trigger its exit clause from the bloc, a senior EU diplomat said, after Britain's top court ruled that London must seek parliamentary approval before invoking the so-called Article 50. "The UK representative here made it very clear that he is going to prepare a short legislative bill to go to the parliament but he does not foresee any problems to stick to the deadline ... before the end of March," Malta's Deputy...

    DIY gene therapy is on the rise

    In a dream Brian Hanley told me about, he’s riding a bus when he meets a man in dark leather clothing. Next thing he knows, he is splayed across a tilted metal bed, being electrocuted. The dream was no doubt connected to events that took place last June at a plastic surgeon’s office in Davis, California. At Hanley’s request, a doctor had injected into his thighs copies of a gene that Hanley, a PhD microbiologist, had designed and ordered from a research supply company. Then, plunging two p...
