This Week in History: On Aug. 25, 1916 President Woodrow Wilson signed into law a bill that established the National Park Service within the Department of the Interior. For 100 years it has been in charge of protecting, preserving, and educating people about the country’s iconic national treasures. Preceding the National Park Service, Yellowstone National Park was established as the first national park in 1872, and today the NPS includes over 400, parks, seashores, monuments, historical and cultural sites, scenic rivers and trails to name a few. During his administration President Barack Obama has established and expanded several national monuments, protecting more than 265 million acres of America’s public land- more than any previous president.

For much of the world, the catastrophic consequences of climate change are years down the line. But a new class of displaced people, so-called “climate change refugees,” has emerged as some populations find their environments increasingly inhospitable.

It’s happening in Bangladesh, where coastal flooding has begun to wipe out entire villages and crops. In the United States, parts of the Louisiana bayou have started to slip beneath the Gulf of Mexico, forcing American communities to relocate to higher ground.

But the situation is dire for inhabitants of the Marshall Islands, where moving further inland is not an option. If tides were to rise by the projected levels, living there would resemble being trapped in a narrow room with the walls closing in on both sides. “Hell and High Water” is the latest chapter in our special report on the world’s migrant crisis made in partnership with Magnum Photos. Photographer Michael Christopher Brown takes us to the island nation which stands to suffer the greatest and most immediate consequences of climate change.

For years, the Marshall Islands were used as a nuclear test site. Now, its residents face another man-made existential threat — rising tides.

This Week in Pictures: Last Friday, the 2016 Summer Olympics kicked off in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and by the end of this week the United States was leading in medals having won 16 gold medals, 12 silver medals, and 11 bronze medals, tailed by China, Japan, and Great Britain respectively. On Tuesday, Donald Trump incited controversy by raising questions about how “Second Amendment people” would stop Hillary Clinton from appointing liberal Supreme Court justices. Forest fires in Portugal this week displaced thousands and killed at least four.

For five South Sudanese runners competing in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, “refugee” is an identity that has followed them for most of their lives.

In the face of a global refugee crisis, the 2016 Olympic Games are bringing together the first ever team of refugees. Ten athletes are set to compete in the Games and represent the millions of people displaced from their homes around the world, all united under a single banner. They are the nation of refugees.

In this, the latest chapter in our special report on the world’s migrant crisis in partnership with Magnum Photos photographer Newsha Tavakolian takes us to the athlete’s training facility in Nairobi and the Kakuma refugee camp in northwestern Kenya, “home” to the displaced five.

This Week in History: The Summer Olympics opened in Berlin on August 1, 1936. It was these games that started the tradition of the Olympic torch relay with a flame lit on Mount Olympus. This was also a transformative period for Germany, which had just seen Hitler’s swift rise to power following the death of President von Hindenburg in 1934. Leni Riefenstahl, the filmmaker perhaps best known for the 1935 propaganda epic “Triumph of the Will,” shot this photograph in the making of her documentary “Olympia,” often hailed as a monumental film. It was the first feature-length documentary to cover the Olympics and Riefenstahl employed many revolutionary sports filming techniques. However, the film is politically controversial: The Nazi party declared non-Aryans unwelcome participants and barred them from German teams, save Jewish fencing star Helene Mayer. Here, a diver leaps from a height of ten meters, in Berlin, 1936.

On the fourth and final night of what became a historic Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton officially accepted the first ever nomination of a woman candidate for the U.S. presidency. “Tonight, we’ve reached a milestone in our nation’s march toward a more perfect union: the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for president,” Clinton said to a roaring crowd. “Standing here as my mother’s daughter, and my daughter’s mother, I’m so happy this day has come.” The nominee returned repeatedly to the idea that progress requires sacrifice—her campaign’s theme that “it takes a village,” and that, in contrast to Donald Trump’s claim that “I alone can fix it,” no one person can do it alone.

The future of the Republican Party — with or without Donald J. Trump — is weighing heavily on the party’s top elected officials, thought leaders and activists. We asked more than a dozen prominent minds in the Republican Party, including Trump supporters and Trump critics, fiscal conservatives and social conservatives, tea party rabble-rousers and veteran establishment hands, to assess the impact of Trump’s emergence and where the party goes from here.

It has been an exciting and record-breaking first week of the 2016 Summer Olympics as competitors from all over the world showcased their athletic prowess in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. On Thursday night, U.S. swimming legend Michael Phelps claimed the 22nd Olympic gold of his career with a dominant win in the 200-meter individual medley, marking the fourth straight Olympics that he has won this event. The victory provided Phelps his 13th individual gold of his long and storied Olympic career. Later that same evening, Simone Manuel became the first African-American woman to win an individual swimming gold medal. Manuel’s roommate in athlete’s village has been none other than American Katie Ledecky, who in her own events has continued her massive record-setting success at the games.

This Week in History: On August 12, 1961, East Germany’s Communist leader Walter Ulbricht ordered a barrier that would block passage between Soviet-controlled East Berlin and its democratic counterpart in the western half of the city. Just after midnight, East German soldiers laid more than 100 miles of barbed wire, in what later became the 10 ft. 96-mile-long Berlin Wall. After WWII, Germany was divided into zones of French, American, British and Soviet occupation. By 1961, millions of East German laborers, professionals and intellectuals had headed west in search of better lives. On August 13, 1961, Berliners on either side awoke to find they were cut off from family and friends living across the city. The most iconic symbol of the Cold War stood until 1989, when Berliners from each side united to dismantle it.

The week was a bumpy one, with the fight against ISIS in Libya escalating, continued self-inflicted controversy plaguing Donald J. Trump's campaign for presidency, widespread floods and fires, and the 2016 Olympic torch arriving to Rio de Janeiro amid protest. But that didn't stop communities of youth from enjoying those long-beloved summer days.

This week, the Democratic National Convention kicked off at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pa. The four-day event saw rousing speeches by First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Cory Booker, President Barack Obama, and former President Bill Clinton. Comedian Sarah Silverman came with a special message for voters who consider themselves ‘Bernie or Bust,’ over whose booing and yelling speakers struggled to be heard – “You’re being ridiculous.” And Hillary Clinton made history by being the first woman to win the nomination for President by a major political party. In southern and central Calif., thousands of firefighters are battling devastating wildfires. In Normandy, France on Tuesday, two attackers who had pledged allegiance to ISIS slashed the throat of an 85-year-old priest as he performed mass.

The penultimate day of the Democratic National Convention was packed with the speeches of major American political figures—from former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, to Vice President Joe Biden and Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine. But perhaps the biggest moment on the convention stage was the one in which President Barack Obama urged voters to “do for Hillary Clinton what you did for me.” The President arrived to chants of “yes we can” before he talked about family, faith in America, and feeling the bern. But the larger focus of his speech served to urge the American public, whom he called “the best organizers on the planet,” to mobilize—to go out and vote, “not just for a president, but for mayors, and sheriffs, and state’s attorneys, and state legislators.” Clinton took the stage alongside President Obama to a cheering crowd just before the convention went into recess until Thursday—its last day, and the one on which Clinton will address the delegates.

Take a look back at the third day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pa. Photographer Mark Peterson was on the ground covering the convention for MSNBC Photography as part of his on-going body of work “Political Theatre” which examines the landscape of the American political system.
