What the Chicago Teachers Strike Means For Public Education: Over 25,000 Chicago teachers remain on strike in a dispute that has implications for the future of public education. We take a look at the sticking points with Education Week's Stephen Sawchuk.

A Seattle Black Panther Looks Back: Aaron Dixon grew up in Seattle's Central District and co–founded the Seattle chapter of the Black Panther Party in 1968. He was 19. Four decades later, he's reflecting on his experiences in a new book, "My People Are Rising: Memoir of a Black Panther Party Captain."

On The Job: Taxidermy: Tony Angell is an illustrator, sculptor and author. He's not a professional taxidermist, but he does enjoy it. Why? To preserve the dead animals he finds so that he can reference their bone, wing or fur structure to make his artistic endeavors more accurate. Weekday producer Katy Sewall paid him a visit.

The Weather And Hike Of The Week: Michael Fagin suggests a hike that matches the week's weather forecast.
