After Controversy Over Condolence Calls, Can Trump And The White House Refocus?

Updated Monday, Oct. 23 at 6:08 p.m. ET When backed into a corner, President Trump digs in and fights back. It's what he's done as president, it's what he did as a candidate and it's what he did as a businessman. Just go listen to NPR's Embedded podcast and a recent episode about Trump's fight with Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., over things as petty as a flagpole at his golf course, putting hedges in front of houses he thought were ugly and the name of a road.

Khan and his wife Ghazala became the center of political discussion when Trump questioned their motives and religion, even though they're Gold Star parents...

A Tale Of Two Efforts To Improve Confidence In U.S. Elections

Efforts to boost public confidence in U.S. elections are proceeding on two parallel tracks right now. One is moving slowly, but steadily. The other is hardly moving at all. Most of the attention has gone to a commission set up by President Trump to look into allegations of voter fraud and other electoral problems. The panel — called the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity — has been mired in controversy ever since it was formed earlier this year. Its work now appears...

Learning To Care For My Newborn Was A Humbling Experience

Wen is an emergency physician and the health commissioner of Baltimore City. Two months ago, my husband and I welcomed our baby son, Eli, into the world. Hearing his first cry and getting to hold him were the happiest moments of our lives. When he was placed on my chest and I could see and touch him, I felt like I knew him already. The doctors told us he was healthy and well. I couldn't wait to start our lives together as a family. The night we arrived home, Eli wouldn't stop crying. Crying...

The FDA Will Decide Whether 26 Ingredients Count As Fiber

What counts as dietary fiber? That's up for debate. The Food and Drug Administration is reviewing 26 ingredients that food manufacturers use to bulk up the fiber content of processed foods to determine if there's a health benefit.

Other ingredients on the "do-these-count-as-fiber?" list include gum acacia, bamboo fiber, retrograded corn...

Italian Runner Wins Venice Marathon After All The Favorites Take A Wrong Turn

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wfd8meY4cg It's fair to say things were not supposed to go this way at the Venice Marathon. It would've been little surprise if Kenya's Gilbert Kipleting Chumba had won the race Sunday — or maybe it could have been his countryman David Kiprono Metto. And, in fact, both of those favorites were among the leaders roughly 16 miles into the marathon. Then, they took a wrong turn. Led astray by a guide motorcycle, the small pack of runners leading the marathon...
