President Trump hosted Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan at the White House. The meeting came after Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria, which cleared the way for Turkey to lead an offensive in the area and which drew bipartisan criticism. Trump and Erdogan held a joint press conference. 

For more information, see NPR's coverage of Trump and Erdogan's joint press conference.

There was exactly one sink in my first New York apartment, which also featured a bathtub in the kitchen and a toilet tucked away by itself in a room smaller than many closets. It was fine for a person living alone, but when my roommates returned, well, the dishes — from which there was never an escape — piled up fast.

In 1957, Joel Healy witnessed one of the largest nuclear tests ever conducted on U.S. soil.

Healy was in the U.S. Army, stationed in the Nevada desert north of Las Vegas at Camp Desert Rock. He was 17 years old and a private first class at the time.

Healy drove dump trucks, moved materials, and built structures, like houses, that would be destroyed by the explosions so the Army could study the effects of a nuclear blast. He also helped build the towers where many of the bombs were detonated.
