    Washington Week [#5715] President Trump is expected to decertify the Iran nuclear deal on Friday despite assessments from several cabinet officials that Iran is complying with the 2015 agreement. The decision would send the deal to Congress which could re-impose economic sanctions and effectively kill the deal that limits the development of Iran's nuclear ambitions. Mr. Trump's attempt to get out of the "worst deal" would have a far-reaching impact on how the United States is viewed on the world stage and comes the same week the president publicly challenged his own secretary of state.
    On domestic issues, the president signed an executive order to dismantle key parts of the Affordable Care Act and will allow small businesses to join together to purchase insurance plans. The directive would undermine the Obamacare exchanges and could potentially raise prices for the sickest people. The unilateral action comes as President Trump grows increasingly frustrated with the Republican Party's ability to pass legislation on Capitol Hill and GOP leaders work to overhaul the tax system.
    Robert Costa will discuss President Trump's actions at home and abroad with:
    Michael Crowley of POLITICO
    Shawna Thomas of VICE News
    Julie Hirschfeld Davis of The New York Times
    Nancy Cordes of CBS News

    Jeremiah On July 18, 1965, U.S. Navy Commander Jeremiah Denton took off from the aircraft carrier USS Independence leading a 28-plane mission over the city of Thanh Hoa in North Vietnam. Denton's plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire during the attack, and for the next 8 long years, he would battle the North Vietnamese as a prisoner of war in the infamous Hanoi Hilton.
    As the senior American officer at the prison, Denton was forced by the North Vietnamese to participate in a press conference and told he must say the POWs were being treated well. Looking haggard, weak and beaten from the severe punishment he had undergone, Denton took advantage of that opportunity however, to send a secret message home, blinking out the letters T-O-R-T-U-R-E in Morse code.
    In this film, family, friends, and fellow POWs help tell the story of this American hero who led the way for prisoners in Hanoi and returned from Vietnam to become a US Senator from Alabama. 6 of Denton's children are interviewed: Jeremiah III, James, Don, Mike, Mary and Madeleine. Robert Shumaker, James Mulligan and George Coker were part of the Alcatraz Eleven, a group of hardline resistors including Denton that the Vietnamese removed from the Hanoi Hilton and sent to a worse prison that the POW's named Alcatraz. Other interviewees include Senate staffer Joel Lisker, who worked for Denton; Alvin Townley, author of Defiant; and Heath Hardige Lee, who is writing a history of the POW wives and the POW/MIA movement.
    The documentary also tells the story of what was happening back home to Denton's wife, Jane, and their 7 children, who wondered if he would ever return as they faced the turbulent social changes of the 1960's. Jane Denton managed to overcome her grief at her husband's imprisonment by becoming an activist and helping to start the POW/MIA Movement which was partially responsible for the Vietnamese ending their program of torture.
    The film explores the power of faith in unbelievable circumstances, and the qualities of leadership Jeremiah Denton brought to the difficult task of guiding fellow POWs to survive years of imprisonment and torture. In the end, it leaves no doubt that Denton was "a hero among heroes."

    American Graduate Day [#2017H] AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY 2017 is a four-hour, live broadcast and outreach event dedicated to engaging our country around the dropout crisis with special celebrity guests, relevant spokespeople and compelling stories from the students themselves. At its core, it will preserve the same broadcast themes as last year's AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY, leveraging a unique production and community engagement model both locally and nationally. AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY 2017 will be hosted by Soledad O'Brien and once again be broadcast from the Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center in New York City. The broadcast's primary theme will be mentorship -- telling the story of Community Partners and how they provide support, advice, and intervention services to at-risk students, families, and schools. This year's AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY will emphasize the need for mentors beyond high school, and focus on how mentors can be helpful as students pursue a variety of post-secondary options, including traditional four year colleges, skills-based certifications, vocational training or the military. As in years past, the most important element of AMERICAN GRADUATE DAY 2017 is the participation of community-based organizations (Community Partners) doing exceptional work to combat the dropout problem. The theme of mentorship will be applied to a variety of pertinent topic strands related to addressing this crisis including Early Education, More & Better Learning, Special Needs, STEAM, Dropout Prevention and Re-engagement, and Career Readiness & College Completion duration 3:56:46   STEREO TVG
