So, You Want To Impeach The President | Ron’s Office Hours | NPR

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2fx6YXFEho
No President of the United States has ever been removed from office by impeachment. http://bit.ly/NPRsubscribe But it’s hard to watch the news these days without hearing the word. So what does it actually take to impeach a president? In this Ron's Office Hours, NPR's Ron Elving explains the procedure by which the House of Representative and the U.S. Senate impeach a sitting president. He also looks at the history of impeachment proceedings, beginning with former President John Tyler in the 1840s and leading up to the House impeachment of former President Bill Clinton in 1998. And Ron breaks down how this relates to President Trump, who has already been the subject of two impeachment resolutions brought by House Democrats. ------------------------------------------------------ Follow NPR elsewhere, too: • Twitter: https://twitter.com/npr • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NPR • Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/npr/ • Tumblr: http://npr.tumblr.com/ • Snapchat: https://www.snapchat.com/add/npr ABOUT NPR NPR connects to audiences on the air, on demand, online, and in person.

Senior Spring: How Teens Feel About Guns in America | NPR

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxGrsxpcqeA
On Feb. 14, 2018, a gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. In the aftermath, led first by students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, teenagers around the country initiated an unprecedented wave of youth activism for gun control. Teenage voices from all sides of the issue weighed in, and in the months that followed, they helped reinvigorate one of the nation's longest-raging debates. Beginning in March 2018, NPR sought out more than 15 teenagers from nine states and Washington, D.C., to document their relationship with guns. Everyone featured in the resulting film was 17 years old in 2018. Most of these teens were seniors in high school. As they approached their graduations, they spoke from a variety of diverse backgrounds and perspectives — from sport shooters in the Midwest to a student planning to join the military in the Southwest; from a teenager in Washington, D.C., who lost his twin brother to gun violence to a young woman in Montana who followed the example of the teens from Parkland. What emerged was a portrait of the budding political consciousness of the next generation of American voters, and a fresh look at America's complex relationship with guns from the teenagers who have grown up with them.

Eating Dandelions | The Salt | NPR

Dandelions are much more than just unwanted weeds, according to expert forager and nutritionist Debbie Naha—they make a delicious (and nutritious) snack. Naha took us foraging for dandelions at Little Buffalo State Park in Newport, Pa. She advises to pick from your own yard or a place where you know that no agricultural chemicals, like weedkillers, are sprayed. She demonstrated how she incorporates the flower petals into a dandelion smoothie and dandelion fritters. • Read "VIDEO: Dandelions Aren't Just Weeds.
