Can President Obama and House Republicans reach an agreement before the Jan. 1 deadline?

    Science Friday Moral Injury By now, post traumatic stress is well-established as a psychological diagnosis of war.

    Lance, Inc. -- Lance Armstrong presided like a business executive over cycling teams that achieved unparalleled athletic success.

    All Things Considered PTSD and Meditation The VA in Palo Alto, California is using a new program called "compassion meditation" to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in veterans. In general, meditation is a mixed-bag for PTSD. Sometimes an empty brain is an open invitation for flashbacks and self-recrimination. The new guided meditation aims very specifically at the veteran's capacity for compassion, in other words, the ability to relate to wives, children and strangers in the civilian world.

    All Things Considered Eastern Congo Conflict In eastern Congo, the city of Goma has been captured by rebel forces. But on the streets, life appears normal, and people are not particularly fearful. Many say that the rebels have humiliated their national army and U.N. peacekeepers. Even some wounded government soldiers in the military hospital seem in a conciliatory mood.
