Congress has finally approved a stop gap spending bill that provides funding -- $1.1 billion - to fight the Zika virus. The money comes at the same time that new Zika transmission zones have been found in Florida and the first group of babies of mothers in Puerto Rico known to have been exposed to the virus in their first trimester are being born.
"Bill! Bill! Bill!" the crowd passionately chanted, reminiscent of Bill Nye the Science Guy, the iconic PBS television series. Minutes later Bill Nye took the stage in his signature dapper look including a white blazer and bowtie at the Brooklyn Pier for the National Parks Service 100-year birthday celebration. Nye was named an ambassador for the National Parks Service.
