One Year After Ferguson: What’s Changed?

“There is an awakening everywhere, and those 100-plus nights have changed the social fabric of America.” AJ+ went to the Michael Brown mural on North Union Boulevard in St. Louis to ask what’s changed in the year since Brown’s death.

Drought Talk: Is All Water Use Created Equal?

A massive amount of groundwater is being pulled from California’s Central Valley – so much that several cities in the area have started to sink.

Spain Still Suffering Fallout From Housing Bust

MADRID— Xacobo Rodriguez, out of work and with an infant child, says he lives in a constant state of dread. “You always fear the day there will be a knock on the door and then you’ll be evicted from your home,” he says.

Mr. Rodriguez, 38 years old, is one of the many Spaniards who can’t pay pricey mortgages taken out before a property bubble popped in 2008. Worse, his mother, who guaranteed his loan with her own home, is also at risk. “I feel we both might sink,” he says.
