    Ready Jet Go! [#115H] Ice Moon Enceladus/What Goes Up.... * Ice Moon Enceladus - Sean sets up a sno-cone stand to help raise money to send a spaceship to Mars. But it's the hottest day of the year and he quickly runs out of ice, and he can't find any nearby. Then Jet has an idea where they can go to get some ice-Saturn's ice moon, Enceladus! Curriculum: Enceladus is a small moon of Saturn that contains a liquid ocean underneath an outer layer of ice. It has "ice volcanoes" that shoot geyser-like jets of water vapor into space. Some of the water vapor falls back as "snow" and the rest escapes, which supplies most of the material making up Saturn's E ring.
    * What Goes Up... - Jet builds a mini-flying saucer in his garage and wants to test it, but to succeed, he has to learn what gravity is and how it works. Curriculum: Gravity is an invisible pulling power that every object has-planets, moons, stars, and YOU. Gravity pulls all objects in the universe toward one another. The bigger and heavier an object is (the more mass it has), the more gravity it has.

Will they succeed? And if so, how?
    * A Monkey, A Plan, A Canal - Oh no! George and Allie find that a dry spell has lowered the water level of Lake Wanasink Lake and one of their fish friends got trapped in a small pond away from it's family! What's a monkey and girl to do? Trying to put the fish in a pail to carry it over doesn't work. George decides to dig a canal between the lake and the little pond.

Will George get extra credit for trying to follow the rules, or will his effort create one big mess?
    * Charkie Goes to School - Charkie's building has a new rule - all dogs must have a good-behavior diploma from obedience school.

    Washington Week [#5718H]
    Republicans rolled out their sweeping plan to lower the corporate tax rate and slash taxes for middle-income Americans. The proposal includes a number of changes including lowering inheritance taxes while preserving popular rules that protect retirement savings.
    Republicans hope to offset some of the lost revenue from lower tax rates by eliminating tax breaks in the code. President Trump is urging lawmakers to act quickly to pass the tax reform package so he can sign it into law by the end of the year.
    The first major moves in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election were also made this week.
    The indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates made headlines, but it was the unexpected plea deal by former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos that proved to be more of a mystery. Efforts by the White House and conservative leaders to discredit the probe don't seem to be working. According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, more than twice as many Americans approve as disapprove of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation.
    We'll get analysis on the major stories of the week from:
    Nancy Cordes of CBS News
    Philip Rucker of The Washington Post
    Kelsey Snell of NPR

    Emery Blagdon and His Healing Machine With pliers in hand, Nebraska artist Emery Blagdon fashioned pieces of wire into patterns and attached foil, beads, ribbons and an infinite array of everyday cast-off items. He hung the creations he called his "pretties" in his rural Nebraska shed, creating an environment he believed could generate natural energy from the earth and help people attain better health.
    The stories of Blagdon, his "Healing Machine" and the two men responsible for preserving this great American art are told in this film. Local pharmacist Dan Dryden befriended the man with unkempt hair, a long beard and overalls when Blagdon visited the store to buy supplies. When Dryden visited his farm, he was astonished by Blagdon's creations.
    When Blagdon died, his farmstead and the "Healing Machine" were up for auction. To keep his art from being separated or destroyed, Dryden and his friend Don Christensen purchased the "Healing Machine." His masterpiece is now on display at the John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and Emery Blagdon is known by art collectors and museum visitors as a man with boundless visionary creativity - an artist of great significance.
