Verify: Is West Texas sinking?

A new research report, from Southern Methodist University and funded by NASA, found a “…large swath of West Texas oil patch is heaving and sinking at alarming rates.” To find out if West Texas is sinking, first I'm going to the guy who wrote the report, Dr. Zhong Lu. He's a geophysicist who studies the earth using satellites. By shooting a radar beam from space -- like a measuring stick -- a satellite can calculate elevation changes down to the centimeter. Lu did that over a 4000 square mile area. [...]

Listen: Jeffrey Engel, CPH, Unpacking The Confusing Signals We’re Getting from the Mueller Probe

WDET Originally Posted: April 11, 2018 We have become accustomed to the weekly news cycle being interrupted by the quarter turn of information about Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 presidential election. But this week saw a blockbuster emerge. FBI agents raided the office and home of Michael Cohen, the personal attorney of President Trump. The federal agents reportedly seized documents related to the president’s alleged affairs with two women, including Stormy Daniels. That raid is awfully close to the president himself, a fact which is reflected in Trump’s response. Trump sent an angry series of tweets practically accusing Mueller of treason.
