Guest: John Clark, Ph.D, Professor of Veterinary and Animal Sciences at the University of Massachusetts—Amherst  Parents dread getting that note home from their child’s school warning that head lice are making the rounds. Thinking of it might make you itch: the caustic shampooing and careful combing, the endless piles of pre-emptive laundry to make sure the lice aren’t hiding out on linens or clothes.  And now comes news from the lab of Dr. John Clark at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst that a drug-resistant strain of lice have now been found in 25 states.

Guest: Eric Jensen, J.D., teaches The Law of Armed Conflict, International Criminal Law, and National Security Law at BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School  Hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing poverty and conflict and Syria are arriving by train, bus and on foot in Austria and Germany. Heart-wrenching images last week of drowned toddlers intensified calls for European nations to do more for the refugees. The president of the European Commission today announced binding quotas for distributing a total of 160,000 refugees between EU nations.  The Washington Post reported last week that the CIA and US Special Operations forces have launched a secret campaign to hunt terrorism suspects in Syria—this is part of a targeted killing program that is separate from the military’s broader offensive against the Islamic State.  North and South Korea recently agreed to ease tensions.
