From Barack Obama: The First Four Years:

In early 2010, President Obama made good on a campaign promise to Nevada by stopping funding for the development of the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository program. The volcanic ridge about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas has been the leading site candidate for nuclear waste since the 1980s.

However, according to The New York Times, the mountain was selected for political, rather than scientific, reasons stemming from a list created by a 1987 Congress that declared the area dry and remote. However, since its selection and substantial construction, it was discovered that water flows through the mountain faster than believed, therefore any nuclear waste stored inside the mountain could pollute the water supply.

In a bold move that may have injected a dose of sanity into what had become tantamount to throwing money down a bottomless pit, President Obama cut off all federal funding for Yucca Mountain in 2010 and tried to have the site’s application removed from consideration, but a federal court found congressional law required consideration of the application.

From Quicklet on Barack Obama's Dreams From My Father:

Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance is Barack Obama’s ode to his early life, which was varied and exotic, to say the least, and would have been challenging for any child.

He made the decision to write the book after receiving an advance from a publisher some time after he had been elected president of the Harvard Law Review, the first African American to hold the position.

Dreams from My Father was first published in 1995 in the style of a memoir, and marked the initial expression of the young Democrat’s political ambition. Obama was aged only 34 at the time, and was gaining a reputation as a community activist, a civil rights lawyer and a university lecturer.

And in 2004, after almost a decade of considerable political success and in the run-up to being voted the Senator for Illinois, Obama decided to re-publish the book for a second time.

In his introduction, he said he originally wrote the book “with the belief that the story of my family, and my efforts to understand that story, might speak in some way to the fissures of race that have characterized the American experience, as well as the fluid state of identity—the leaps through time, the collision of cultures—that mark our modern life.”

From Biography of Michelle Obama:

Since the beginning of 2012, Michelle Obama and her family have faced a vital year for the family. This is the year where her husband will campaign for his second term in office, and as such their family image has been closely scrutinized. In recent months, Michelle has continued with her family life, as well as the campaigns that are true to her heart.

Michelle has recently been quick to promote the same causes as her husband and as such she has been vocal in encouraging the rich to spread their wealth. She has questioned why families who earn a lot of money can feel good, when others continue to struggle. In a public address, Michelle said "If a family in this country is struggling, we cannot be satisfied with our own families' good fortune."

Michelle has also begun to take her health campaigning to the next level, by launching a campaign that is targeted specifically at the Latino population of the USA. "Mi Plato" (My Plate), is a bilingual educational campaign that encourages those who reside within the Latino community to make better choices about what they eat.
