"There was so much optimism" in Iran in 2015 when the nuclear deal was put in place, says CNN senior international correspondent Frederik Pleitgen, who joins host Jeremy Hobson from Tehran. "You can really see that that optimism is pretty much all but gone now, after President Trump said what he said yesterday." Also, the clothing brand LuLaRoe has many fans of its patterned leggings and geometrically designed dresses, which are sold by women out of their homes. But thousands of these "consultants," as the company calls them, have left the company, and some have filed lawsuits alleging LuLaRoe is a pyramid scheme. And some scientists say it might be too late to save the Great Barrier Reef, which has been badly damaged by warming waters. We hear from one NOAA researcher who hasn't given up hope — and doesn't want other people to give up either. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's May 9, 2018 full broadcast.
