    Science Friday End-of-Life Decisions In medical circles, it's called "the conversation" when medical professionals sit down with patients to tell them that there's no longer any realistic hope.

    All Things Considered 'Most Unpopular Senator in U.S.' During the Congressional recess, Sen. Jeff Flake returned to Arizona -- but his constituents were not very happy with him. Just a few months into his first term, Flake is facing backlash because of his vote against universal background checks for gun purchases. A recent poll shows that even in this conservative state, most voters support background checks -- and now Flake is facing the dubious distinction of being the most "unpopular Senator in the U.S."

    All Things Considered Complications of Online Sales Tax The U.S. Senate is expected to pass a bill to allow states to collect sales tax from online sellers. Proponents say collection should be easy, despite rebuttals about how complicated it is to collect taxes from 9,600 jurisdictions. It's also not clear how far states will have to go to help small businesses. And some tax experts say it's an entirely new kind of tax that raises some issues for the future.
