The National Academies Guide to President Trump’s Address to a Joint Session of Congress

The President’s Joint Address to Congress focused on topics including immigration, health care, and infrastructure. The National Academies Press provides resources directly related to these issues.

In keeping with our seven-year tradition of providing resources on the topics in Presidents’ State of the Union addresses, we’ve annotated the complete text of President Trump’s Address to Congress with relevant reports from the National Academies that provide authoritative, independent guidance on these issues.

African penguin (Spheniscus demersus) at Boulders Beach South Africa

While in Cape Town, I was able to visit the penguin rockery located at Boulders Beach for a few minutes. Endemic to southern Africa, in 2010 the African penguin was uplifted from vulnerable to endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN 2011) because the species is undergoing a rapid population decline. This decline has been attributed in part to food shortages caused by commercial purse-seine fisheries of sardines and anchovies. In 2015 populations were estimated to be about 25,000 pairs and about 1000 pairs nest at Boulders which is a protected site.

Eugene Cernan
1934-2017

"I'm on the surface; and, as I take man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come - but we believe not too long into the future - I'd like to just [say] what I believe history will record. That America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return: with peace and hope for all mankind. Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17."•
