On May 5, the Institute of Politics and the Department of History welcomed Academy Award winning filmmaker Oliver Stone, director of films including JFK, NIXON, W. and the upcoming SNOWDEN, to campus. Stone has described his body of work as “controversial versions of recent American history, some of them at deep odds with conventional myth.” The event began with a screening Episode 3 of The Untold History of the United States; which explores the strategies behind the atomic bombings of Japan. After the screening, UChicago professor Bruce Cumings interviewed Mr. Stone and Peter Kuznick, historian and writer of the Untold series. Kuznick is Professor of History and Director of the Nuclear Studies Institute at American University.

Bowing to auto industry pressure, Trump to reconsider emissions standards, says source – Chicago Tribune
People wait in line Oct. 17, 2016, to get their vehicles tested at the emissions testing station on Webster Avenue, which is set to close Nov. 1. Abel Uribe/Chicago Tribune (Abel Uribe / Chicago Tribune)
The Trump administration plans to open the door to a possible reconsideration of greenhouse gas emission standards for cars and light trucks that has been sought by automakers, according to a person familiar with the plans.
That decision will be withdrawn for reconsideration as early as next week, said the person, who would only discuss the plans on the condition of anonymity because they have not been made public. An EPA spokeswoman declined to comment.
It will be one of a series of actions taken by the Trump administration recently to reconsider or reverse Obama-era regulations opposed by industry.
