Federal Judge Seems Sympathetic To Anti-Corruption Case Against President Trump

Updated at 1 p.m. ET Barely a month ago, a federal judge in New York dismissed an anti-corruption lawsuit against President Trump. But on Thursday, another federal judge, in a different courtroom, gave the same basic argument a much friendlier response. Judge Peter Messitte, of federal district court in Greenbelt, Md., seemed sympathetic to the assertion that Trump profits from the nexus of his hotels and the presidency. During a preliminary hearing, the argument against Trump was made by two...

Mexico Registers Its Highest Number Of Homicides On Record

More than a decade after Mexican soldiers deployed in the streets and mountains to fight a U.S.-backed drug war, Mexico has something to show for it: more killings than ever.

The Massive Case Of Collective Amnesia: The FBI Has Been Political From The Start

Recent FBI investigations relevant to the 2016 presidential election have become the latest battleground in our deeply divided and partisan politics. Some Republicans, disappointed by the lack of charges over Hillary Clinton's emails and distressed by the continuing probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, suddenly perceive corruption in the FBI. Democrats counter that the casting of doubt on the nation's top national law enforcement agency is an unprecedented outrage. Everyone...

The hosts, members of the U.S. Embassy staff, made their guests envious by revealing that they could request any American products they wanted through the embassy.

These were globe-trotting sophisticates living in the tony Maida Vale neighborhood, and topping their wish lists were ... Bud Light and Cheetos. To Americans...

The Far Out History Of How Hippie Food Spread Across America

Frustrated with the Vietnam War, The Man, and the general state of the nation, hippies set out to do everything differently. They founded rural communes, dabbled in psychedelics and cultivated a laissez-faire approach to personal hygiene. But, like everyone else in the world, they had to eat. Mainstream fare — Wonder Bread and frozen vegetables — clashed with their politics. So they explored and invented new foods, then enthusiastically shared their creations. And despite the disbanding of...

A hand-held scanner helps Beatty find specific items, such as face cream or lipstick — to be sorted, packed and shipped to online customers. In his industry, this is called picking.

In a weeklong series , NPR explores many aspects of this change. For Tom Hansen and his family, the past few weeks have been a time of feast or famine.
