    Washington Week [#5645] This was the week Congress got busy.
    * Republicans in the House performed life-saving measures to revive their long-promised plan to replace Obamacare weeks after their original replacement bill fell short. The re-crafted measure does not require people to have health insurance, rolls back state-by-state expansions of Medicaid, and includes $8 billion to help cover people with pre-existing conditions. Health care industry groups including the American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society oppose the bill and it's likely to encounter hurdles when it is debated by the Senate.
    * The health care win came just days after Congress reached a bipartisan budget deal to fund the government through the end of September. The $1.1 trillion spending bill increases defense and border security funding but does not include money to pay for President Trump's border wall. Despite the compromise, Trump suggested the need for a "good 'shutdown' in September" to get more Republican spending priorities.
    Robert Costa goes behind-the-scenes in the halls of Congress and the White House to understand the negotiations and impact of this consequential week with: Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post, Erica Werner of AP, Peter Baker of The New York Times, Molly Ball of The Atlantic.

    Ready Jet Go! [#126H] What's A Satellite/Satellite Selfie "What's a Satellite?" - An Earth-orbiting "telecom" communications satellite breaks down, and satellite TV service in Boxwood Terrace stops working. Three people can't watch their favorite shows and consequently get very upset. Jet decides to fly up to space and see what the problem is with the satellite, and hilarity ensues. Curriculum: A satellite is an artificial object that has been intentionally placed into orbit. Satellites are used for a large number of purposes. Communications satellites receive signals from Earth and bounce them back to other locations, for everything from GPS to cell phone service to TV shows. Satellites are usually semi-independent computer-controlled systems. "Satellite Selfie" - The kids learn that they can use links to different websites to see a satellite view of their house. Mindy notices that Jet's house is not in the image. That's because these images are from sometime over the past 2 years, and not live images from space. With Dr. Rafferty's help, the kids identify the next time a satellite will pass over their neighborhood, and try to gather for a "space selfie" next to Jet's house. Curriculum: Satellites are objects that humans have placed into orbit around the Earth. Many have cameras in them. Some of these satellite cameras look "up" at the outer areas of space, and some look "down" at the Earth - they can even see our houses and cars! duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

On Joseph's latest Irish adventure you'll discover along with him that North or South, East or West - wherever you are in Ireland - it is the best! duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
