Trump's 100-days promises: A long way to go on most of them 25.4.2017 AP Top News
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sure enough, the big trans-Pacific trade deal is toast, climate change action is on the ropes and various regulations from the Obama era have been scrapped. It's also a safe bet President Donald Trump hasn't raced a bicycle since Jan. 20, keeping that vow....

Noam Chomsky: US Is the "Most Dangerous Country in the World" 24.4.2017 Truthout.com
The US is literally alone in the world in refusing to join in efforts to do something about saving the planet, says Noam Chomsky. Meanwhile on the domestic front -- under cover of the Trump/Spicer media extravaganzas -- the entire Republican Party under Ryan's leadership keeps chipping away at every government program that's of any use to anybody, except those benefitting the rich.

John Oliver Explains Why Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Aren't Going to Save the White House 24.4.2017 Mother Jones
On the latest Last Week Tonight, John Oliver challenged the popular belief that President Donald Trump's closest advisers, his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, are moderating forces in the White House. According to Oliver, Americans should be concerned, because despite the incredible level of power the couple wields within the administration, the two have little to no actual political experience. He began by specifically calling out Ivanka's history of publicly supporting progressive issues, such as paid maternity leave and climate change, while standing by her father, as his administration sets out to defund Planned Parenthood and limit the role of science and evidence-based policies in government. "The assumption that many of us have that she disagrees with him isn't actually based on much," Oliver said. Oliver then questioned what qualifications Kushner may or may not have to merit his increasingly stacked White House duties, which range from reforming veteran care to brokering ...

Tribune Op-ed: What's more conservative than reverence for the Earth? 23.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Earlier in February, the Senate confirmed Scott Pruitt to head the EPA on a largely party line vote. Both Utah senators, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, voted for his confirmation. Conventional political wisdom suggests this was unsurprising. But should it be? Many Republicans, like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lindsay Graham, Hank Paulson and several Republican House members, including Utah’s Mia Love, publicly support taking action on climate change. But more need to take up the mantle. In our increasing...

Prep baseball: BYU commit Ryan Brady a perfect fit as Park City's ace 23.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Transplanting a teenager from Southern California to Utah, with the climate change and challenge of finding a new set of friends, can be fraught with peril.

For one, Brady already had a familiarity with the region and a love of the area’s favorite pasttime — skiing. Another asset when it came time to integrate with his new teammates on the Park City baseball team was a couple of really wicked ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
