Some veterans have filed a class action lawsuit against a defense contractor claiming toxic smoke from burning waste caused lung disease and cancer. Hari Sreenivasan and NewsHour producer Dan Sagalyn report. Continue reading →

Conversation with author Anand Giridhardas on his new book #TrueAmerican  
If you could face the man who tried to kill you, what would you do? A new book, “The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas,” tells the story of Raisuddin Bhuiyan, a U.S. immigrant from Bangladesh, who was shot in the face in Texas by a man trying to avenge the 9/11 attacks.

chat with +Amy Schatz of Re Code on Federal Trade Commission report on data brokers. Full report at  http://goo.gl/D8DW7T

Amy Schatz of Re/code joins Hari Sreenivasan from Washington for more. Contin...

Great reporting by +Hari Sreenivasan  in this segment on a new blockbuster drug that has a high curage rate for Hepatitis-C. The rub? It also has a high price: Sovaldi costs $1000 per pill, or $84,000 for the typical course of treatment. Pent up demand and potent results have led to record revenue for the maker of the drug, Gilead Pharmaceuticals, and public outcry about the expense:

This is a complicated, important story. I thought the PBS NewsHour handled it well.

few thoughts (& pics) from our recent trip to Guatemala. our piece on malnutrition airs tonight on +PBS NewsHour. Produced by +Jason Kane in partnership with +Pulitzer Center .
When we asked Maria Pilar whether she would save some of the peas she was tirelessly weeding, she looked at us like we were nuts. Her answer was, “I’ve heard people eat these things. But no, not me.” And that was part of the very problem we were in Guatemala to unpack. Half the children in Guatemala are malnourished -- as many as three-fourths in the rural areas.

#STEM  rocks
Scientists and engineers frequently seek solutions to specific problems. But the goal -- and challenge -- of basic research is to tackle broad questions without an immediate application in mind. As part of our ongoing series on the subject, PBS NewsHour asked undergraduates, graduates and postdoctoral researchers why they do basic research. We received more than 30 videos, Instagrams and Vines from throughout the country. Continue reading →

Some of your our body's microbes are going extinct http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/theres-extinction-happening-stomach/
