by Shawna Thomas and Carrie Dann

A policy goal of one member of the United States Senate got a boost this afternoon from one nearly-universal fact about modern American culture: Almost everyone thinks robots are way cool. Sen. Jean Shaheen (D-N.H.) was aided by a small army of robots (and by the teams of students who built them) on Monday in unveiling legislation to help high schoolers gain more access to programs furthering science, technology, engineering and math education.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen: New START treaty will enhance our security

by Jeanne Shaheen

One year ago today, the most dramatic and comprehensive arms-control agreement in history -- known as the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (or "START") -- expired. The 1991 treaty, signed by President George H.W.
