WATCH: Jon Stewart says Congress 'should be ashamed' over inaction on helping 9/11 first responders
 
09:18
Jon Stewart, the former host of "The Daily Show," appeared before a House committee in Washington, D.C., to again advocate for health benefits for 9/11 first responders. At the start of his 10-minute statement, Stewart said Tuesday's hearing was an "incredible metaphor." "Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress." Stewart said the lack of urgency to help these responders was a "stain" on Congress. "Your indifference cost these men and women their most valuable commodity: time," he said. "It's the one thing they're running out of."

WATCH: NYPD veteran on 69th round of chemo makes plea to Congress for 9/11 victims fund
 
05:22
In a simple, but passionate testimony, veteran and retired NYPD detective Luis Alvarez urged lawmakers to reauthorize funding for victims of the 9/11 attacks. “This fund is not a ticket to paradise,” said Alvarez, who was scheduled to begin his 69th round of chemotherapy the next day. “It is there to provide for our families when we can’t. Nothing more." The fund provides money to any person who suffered physical harm or the families or those who were killed in the Sept. 11 attacks or the subsequent debris removal efforts. Alvarez told the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties that, “You all said you would never forget. Well, I’m here to make sure that you don’t.” If the fund is not renewed, it will expire in 2020 and could run out of money before then.

Watch Changing of the Guard at Arlington National Cemetery in 4K

Twenty-one steps south. Face east 21 seconds. Face north 21 seconds. Twenty-one steps north. Face east 21 seconds. Face south 21 seconds. Repeat until relieved. Thus is the meticulous routine performed by the select few chosen for the honor of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, located in Arlington National Cemetery, just outside of Washington, D.C. These Tomb Guard Sentinels, elite volunteer members of the U.S. Army's 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, watch the Tomb 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, rain or shine -- and have done so for almost 80 years. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was constructed in 1921, after Congress approved the burial of an unidentified U.S. soldier from World War I, with other Unknowns interred since. The Tomb has been guarded year-round continuously since 1937, when the first 24-hour guards were posted. Since April 1948, sentinels from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, also known as the "Old Guard," have been watching over the hallowed memorial. The above video shows a complete changing of the guard ceremony edited together from three different ceremonies all recorded on May 20, 2015. To watch the video at full resolution, be sure to choose the 4K option in the YouTube player. The video was shot and produced by Justin Scuiletti.

Here’s proof that open office layouts don’t work, and how to fix them
 
03:44
The basic logic behind the open offices is that tearing down physical barriers inspires communication and collective creativity. But there is little evidence to support these widespread claims — and some surveys show the opposite: declines in employee satisfaction and productivity. Now, two behavior researchers from Harvard University have tackled this problem head on, by directly measuring more than 100,000 face-to-face conversations at two Fortune 500 companies — before and after their global headquarters switched to open office layouts. The team found open office layouts dramatically cut employees’ face-to-face conversations at these companies — by as much as 70 percent.
