Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, Mary Trump, a clinical psychologist and Donald Trump’s niece, decided to write a book on Donald Trump’s upbringing and long legacy of racist and misogynistic behavior. With “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” she hopes to provide voters with firsthand information about Trump’s background that wasn’t public in 2016. “There is more at stake than there has ever been,” she says, referencing the separation of immigrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border as an example of “torture” and cruelty that must be stopped. “I believe our country is on the knife’s edge, and I don’t want anybody going to cast their vote in November claiming they just don’t know who they are voting for.”
When American troops arrived in Nagasaki and stumbled upon one of the cameramen, from the legendary film company Nippon Eiga Sha, shooting amidst the rubble, they promptly arrested him and confiscated his film. The Americans would halt the entire production in fact. When they let it continue, they did so as producers, paying for the production and thus retaining the right to the film – and the right to keep it concealed for decades.
As Tom Brokaw marks his 50th year with NBC News, he continues his chronicle of America’s “Greatest Generation” with a remarkable look at the day World War Two ended – with Japan’s surrender aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945 – 71 years ago.
At 8.15 on 6th August 1945, USAA B29 bomber `Enola Gay’ dropped the world’s first operational atomic bomb, nicknamed ‘Little Boy’. Three days later, on 9th August, another B29 bomber dropped the second operational atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were experiments in a new kind of warfare, whose full implications were not entirely understood at the time. The bombing of these cities brought an end to the Second World War, but at a terrible cost to the Japanese civilian population, and signalling the dawn of the nuclear age. What had led to the fateful decision to deploy these new weapons of mass destruction?

Not Just Lyme: How An Adulterated Planet Let Loose A Scourge Of Ticks And Diseases by Mary Beth Pfeiffer
Mary Beth Pfeiffer, author of Lyme: The First Epidemic of Climate Change, has been an award-winning investigative journalist for three decades. A reporter who has specialized in social justice, environmental and health issues, she is also author of Crazy in America: The Hidden Tragedy of Our Criminalized Mentally Ill. The book is a critically acclaimed look at treatment of the mentally ill in prisons and jails in the United States.
Pfeiffer’s reporting for the Poughkeepsie Journal drew national attention in 2001 when she documented the suicides of mentally ill inmates in round-the-clock solitary confinement. As a 2004-2005 Soros Justice Media Fellow, she found systemic abuse in lockups across the nation, where people with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia were subjected to psychologically torturous isolation. Her October 2004 article in the New York Times Magazine, about the suicide of a 21-year-old mentally ill woman in solitary confinement, became the genesis of Crazy in America.
