Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana Still Experiencing Drought

MID-SOUTH DROUGHT- Texas is technically still experiencing a drought -- even with cooler temperatures and some recent rainfall, A recent report indicates Texas is growing increasingly dry. The U.S. Drought Monitor finds nearly half of the state is in drought. Brian Fuchs is with the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln; he says the record-setting heat, many areas of Texas saw last month, is fueling the drought. "And we're still seeing some of that triple...

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned on Tuesday of a "prolonged" impact from one of the most destructive typhoons in decades to hit the country, with a toll that has now risen to at least 53 dead.

Typhoon Hagibis brought record-breaking rainfall, caused extensive flooding and power outages, forcing the government to approve a special budget for disaster response.

In a parliamentary session, Abe said the rescue effort from the storm that hit central Japan over the weekend was "continuing around the clock."

On a recent Sunday in a tiny gym just outside of Boston, physical trainer Justice Williams teaches Leo Morris a stretch called the Brettzel.

"Yasss," Williams shouts. "There you go. Elbows down."

"Jesus," Morris says, exhausted.

"Yass," Williams shouts again. "And hold. Very nice."

Morris, who is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns, is among about 10 people working out who identify as gay, trans and/or queer.

This is "Queer Gym." It's one of a few workout spaces explicitly for LGBTQ folks that's cropped up in North America in recent years.

Many public service workers thought they were in line to have their student loans forgiven. They made payments for 10 years only to be told they weren't in the right loan forgiveness program.

There's a lot to watch for in Tuesday's Democratic presidential debate in Ohio.

Days after appearing to acquiesce to a Turkish invasion of Northern Syria aimed at routing Washington's Kurdish allies, the White House is officially reversing course, calling instead for a ceasefire, imposing economic sanctions and dispatching Vice President Mike Pence to Ankara.

In an executive order issued Monday, President Trump declared that Turkey's offensive "undermines the campaign to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, endangers civilians, and further threatens to undermine the peace, security, and stability in the region ..."

The very day President Trump was sworn in — Jan. 20, 2017 — he signed an executive order instructing administration officials "to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay" implementing parts of the Affordable Care Act, while Congress got ready to repeal and replace Barack Obama's signature health law.

When Will tried his first vape during his sophomore year, he didn't know what to expect. It was just something he had vaguely heard about at school.

"I just sort of remember using it a bunch of times, like in a row," he says. "And there's this huge buzz-sensation-like head rush. And I just ... didn't really stop."
