Fake news?

Which of the following are fake news:

EPA To Drop 'E,' 'P' From Name
WASHINGTON, DC—Days after unveiling new power-plant pollution regulations that rely on an industry-favored market-trading approach to cutting mercury emissions, EPA Acting Administrator Stephen Johnson announced that the agency will remove the "E" and "P" from its name. "We're not really 'environmental' anymore, and we certainly aren't 'protecting' anything," Johnson said. "'The Agency' is a name that reflects our current agenda and encapsulates our new function as a government-funded body devoted to handling documents, scheduling meetings, and fielding phone calls." The change comes on the heels of the Department of Health and Human Services' January decision to shorten its name to the Department of Services.


First neutrino captured in Iron Range trap
Excerpt from article: The project, which aims to catch neutrinos fired through the earth from Fermilab to the former iron mine in northern Minnesota, has been ratcheting up the intensity of the beam. The Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search project is expected to help researchers understand more about the universe and about smaller subatomic particles. Neutrinos are sometimes called the ghosts of the universe because they have little or no mass, no electrical charge and tend not to interact with other matter. They stream from the sun and other stars.The steel and plas tic strips making up the planes of the detector here are set to pick up the rare neutrinos that actually collide with them instead of passing through undetected.
