President Trump dug in this week to try and fix some problems caused by his trade policies. First up, twelve billion dollars in assistance to farmers to ease the pain of his tariffs. Then the President made up with the head of the European Union Commission, a group of allies he called his foe just two weeks ago promising to work together for a future trade deal. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We also will resolve the steel and aluminum tariff issues and we will resolve retaliatory tariffs. This was a very big day for free and fair trade. MARGARET BRENNAN: And just in case there was any doubt he tweeted a photo of EU Commission head, Jean-Claude Juncker, kissing him on the cheek saying the EU and U.S. love each other.

Work at home programs that really work
Our games have changed over the last three decades. The basics are still intact. A basket inside the three-point line is still two points, a touchdown six, a goal in hockey or a run in baseball still counts as one on the scoreboard.

They’re also more fragile in some respects physically, emotionally and maturity-wise.It takes a special breed to coach in today’s high-level sports environment.

The nation's federal food-stamp program is at the center of an ideological firestorm. On one side are supporters of a bill moving through Congress that would impose stiffer work requirements on beneficiaries in exchange for food aid; on the other, anti-hunger advocates say the plan would make life more precarious for already struggling families. As the debate rages, one state offers a useful test case for assessing the potential impact of revamping food stamps, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), at the national level. Maine introduced work requirements in 2014 under Governor Paul LePage's push to reform its welfare programs. By one measure, the initiative is a success: The state's roll of food-stamp recipients declined from 209,000 residents in 2014 to about 171,000 people as of February.

Visitors who walk into Deborah Giannecchini's ranch house in Modesto, California, will notice a well-tended garden, four small dogs who greet every visitor with enthusiasm and a sign that hangs prominently displayed in her living room that reads "It's never too late to live happily ever after."She got it when she was 62 years old, after she married her husband, Leland, but it could also represent her current mission: to help other women avoid the pain she's experienced and allow them to have their own happy endings.Giannecchini is living with what is considered terminal ovarian cancer.
