Inside Amtrak's engineer training school
Eleven weeks. That's how long it takes to go from average Joe to Amtrak engineer. The transformation takes place at Amtrak's High-Speed Rail Training Facility, housed inside an unassuming beige building along a dead-end road just west of Wilmington, Delaware's Riverfront section. It's here where hopeful engineers from around the country come to take an eleven-week classroom course. Some are former freight train engineers. Some are what Amtrak calls "off the street."

Bailey Coal Mine in Wind Ridge Pa. serves up 45,000 tons of coal per day
Coal produces nearly half the electricity in the U.S., but the mercury, sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide it emits also make it one of the most controversial energy sources. New EPA regulations and a national Sierra Club campaign have added to rising anti-coal sentiment. For many environmental activists, coal represents an old, dirty source of power, but for coal-mining communities around the country, the story is different.

Delaware correctional officers speak out in documentary
Following February's deadly prison riot at Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna, Delaware, the correction officers union is producing a documentary allowing guards to tell their story. "The job the job that we do is one of the most, if not the most dangerous job," said correctional officer Nicole Downing in a preview of the documentary posted online. "Hidden in Plain Sight" is a rare look inside Delaware's prisons, told by those who work there. People like correctional officer Angelina Deallie. "We knew it was coming. It was classic, textbook. There were guys put in that building, free roaming with other inmates that should have never had contact with other people at all, period," Deallie said. "Life became very real to us that day, because all the things that we thought could never happen, happened that day." That day was February 1st, when inmates took control of the C- building at Vaughn Correctional, holding both guards and other inmates hostage. The siege, which resulted in the death of correctional officer Lt. Steven Floyd, was finally resolved nearly 20 hours later. In the following weeks and months, lots of questions have been asked about conditions inside Delaware prisons. The people most familiar with the answers to those questions, correctional officers, are rarely- if ever- allowed to talk about it with the press. To get around that, the officers union, lead by union president Geoff Klopp is working on a documentary to tell their side of the story.

Tiny Homes for the Homeless
The tiny home movement is growing in popularity across the country and two Dover women think tiny homes can make a dent in Delaware's homeless problem. Along a busy street in Dover, a 10 by 20 foot tiny home sits in front of a church. With just 200 square feet to work with, there's not a ton of wiggle room, but there is a living space, kitchen, pull-out bed, bathroom and utilities. This tiny house and others like it could help make a dent in Delaware's homeless population.
