Accusations fly

As Donald Trump launches a new push to win over minority voters, his campaign surrogates -- and Hillary Clinton’s -- are locked in a war of words over race relations. We’re still seeing the repercussions of what was truly a first; two presidential candidates accusing each other of bigotry.

“Major speech”

Donald Trump has announced plans to deliver a “major speech on illegal immigration” in Arizona this week, after appearing to waffle for days on his immigration policy position -- specifically on his plan for dealing with undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S.

Mind the gap

Democrats have catapulted equal pay close to the top of their election-year agenda, but efforts to address the gender wage gap face an uphill battle at both the state and federal levels. We look at why, and hear from an expert who says any progress -- even slow and localized -- is “pretty substantial.”

Life on Mars

NASA hopes a year-long experiment that just ended will help reveal what it would be like to send astronauts to Mars. To prepare for a potential mission in the 2030s, researchers studied six people living like astronauts in a dome on top of a Hawaiian volcano. We find out what they hoped to accomplish.

Fertility suit

A lesbian couple in New Jersey says they were unfairly prevented from getting health insurance coverage for infertility treatments. The married women are now suing over the very specific way the state law defines infertility. We speak to the couple about their painful experiences trying to have a child.

Road ragers

Are drivers in some U.S. cities especially aggressive? Data culled from cars’ on-board diagnostic systems suggest so, with insurance companies eager to work up a map of these vehicular hot-spots. We look at where around the country these motorists tend to lurk, and what they tend to drive.

Marriage trend

What can women who dream of getting married do to improve their odds of finding a mate? Stay in school, apparently. Experts say an observable trend shows how women’s growing educational and career ambitions are changing their attitudes toward matrimony.
