    This week proved Ebola panic spreads much, much faster than the disease itself -- with the former needing only contact with cable news, talk radio, social media, or political ads to proliferate. But with President Obama appointing an Ebola czar on Friday, we can question our preparedness without legitimizing the fear-mongering. As Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, told HuffPost's Sam Stein, without a "10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would've gone through clinical trials and would have been ready."…

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:42 am
    NEW YORK (AP) — Some big-name politicians are joining Jewish protesters in a growing firestorm against an opera they say glorifies Palestinian terrorists. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Gov. George Pataki and two U.S. congressmen are among hundreds expected outside the Metropolitan Opera on Monday to protest the Met premiere of "The Death of Klinghoffer." It's based on the 1985 murder of a disabled Jewish passenger, Leon Klinghoffer, on the Achille Lauro, an Italian cruise ship hijacked by four members of the Palestinian Liberation Front. The 69-year-old New York retiree was…

    Quando estava dando os últimos retoques em "A Terceira Medida do Sucesso", visitei o Brasil para o lançamento do Brasil Post, em parceria com o Grupo Abril. Era uma época que tinha tudo para ser muito estressante - um fluxo constante de prazos da editora e a pressão extra de seguir meus próprios conselhos de dormir o suficiente todas as noites -, mas me lembraram de que o Brasil é um país muito em sintonia com os temas sobre os quais estava escrevendo. Muita tinta e muitos pixels costumam ser dedicados à ascensão do país…

    This week the world was introduced to a glorious -- if unlikely -- new couple, united for all time by the matchmakers at the Norwegian Nobel Committee: Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, recipients of this year's Nobel Peace Prize. She's a 17-year-old Pakistani Muslim; he's a 60-year-old Indian Hindu. Together they're being honored for leading the fight for children's rights -- and against extremism -- worldwide. Malala, of course, is already well-known. After being shot by the Taliban in 2012 for trying to educate herself, she courageously spoke up even louder. "They can only shoot a…

There's no better time to celebrate the work and spirit of our amazing German team under the leadership of Cherno Jobatey, our editorial director, and Sebastian Matthes, our editor-in-chief.

It's also hard to believe that, at that time, we would occasionally hear that Germans simply weren't interested in…

    With early voting in full swing, more than 1.9 million people have cast a ballot in the 2014 midterm elections. I track early voting statistics here. Predictably, dueling spin about early voting has emerged from the Democratic and Republican camps. Republicans point to a better showing among early voters than the 2010 election, and point to this as evidence of greater enthusiasm among their voters. Democrats counter that new Republican voter mobilization efforts have merely shifted the furniture around such that people who would have voted on Election Day are now casting an early vote. When…

By the late 1980s, he had acquired the trappings of success: a Cadillac DeVille and a Lincoln Town Car, a lakefront home, investments in oil and real estate. Then the Nazi hunters showed up. In 1989, as the U.S. government prepared to strip him of his citizenship, Denzinger packed a pair of suitcases and fled to Germany. Denzinger later settled in this pleasant town on the Drava River, where he lives comfortably, courtesy of U.S.

  • A Revolt Against Austerity?

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:56 pm
    There was a bit of good news from Europe last week. Two of the nations that desperately need some respite from austerity essentially told German Chancellor Merkel to stuff it. France, under pressure from Germany and the European Union to meet the E.U.'s straightjacket requirement of deficits of no more than three percent of GDP (whether or not depression looms) informed the E.U. that they will not hit this target until 2017. The government of President Francois Hollande, under fire for failing to ignite a recovery, now plans economic stimulus measures -- and the target be damned. Under E.U.

    19 Oct 2014 | 7:16 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military said Sunday it had airdropped weapons, ammunition and medical supplies to Kurdish forces defending the Syrian city of Kobani against Islamic State militants. The airdrops Sunday were the first of their kind and followed weeks of U.S. and coalition airstrikes in and near Kobani, near the Turkish border. The U.S. said earlier Sunday that it had launched 11 airstrikes overnight in the Kobani area. In a statement Sunday night, U.S. Central Command said U.S. C-130 cargo planes made multiple drops of arms and supplies provided by Kurdish authorities in Iraq. It…

Their rise, however, is on a steep path, with many challenges along the way. "The most dangerous woman in China" is a female business journalist. Bloomberg Businessweek gave this title to Hu Shuli, at the time the editor of Caijing magazine, a leading Chinese business publication,back in 2001.

    18 Oct 2014 | 3:22 am
    With the U.S. currently engaged in an air-war against ISIS in Iraq and Syria and with voices now calling for deeper engagement in both conflict zones, the American public is being bombarded with commentary and analysis about ISIS, Syria and Iraq, and Muslims. Unfortunately, too much of it is shallow -- mostly a stringing together of clichés. More disturbing still, is the extent to which this crisis has provoked another round of uninformed conversation about Arabs and Islam fueling fear and hatred of Arab and Muslim Americans. While a few knowledgeable individuals have been invited for rare…

    Republicans didn't fare well in a recent Fox News poll and Ann Coulter says it's immigrants' fault. In an appearance on the "The O'Reilly Factor" Friday, Coulter said Democrats have used immigrants to boost their performance in elections and that Republicans should stop "sucking up" to Hispanics because they will never vote conservative anyway. Coulter's comments came in reaction to a Fox News poll that found only 36 percent of registered voters had a favorable view of the Republican Party, while 54 percent viewed the party unfavorably. The figures for Democrats were slightly higher, at 43…

    18 Oct 2014 | 5:11 am
    NEW YORK -- On the night of Oct. 8, The Washington Post reported that White House aides had received information in April 2012 “suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest” of a presidential advance team staffer in Cartagena, Colombia, the site of the Secret Service prostitution scandal. The White House quickly dismissed the Post’s story as old news and noted that The Associated Press reported in September 2012 that investigators had “uncovered a hotel record suggesting” an advance team staffer had hired a prostitute in Cartagena. The White House determined at the time that…

Meanwhile, as the midterms draw near, one of the most critical races -- between Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes -- has devolved into foolishness. Who's going to screw up their chances the worst? And, finally, Zach Carter returns from Turkey with some fresh perspective on how that nation's response to the Islamic State…

    Brian Stelter, the host of CNN's media commentary program "Reliable Sources," addressed the network's latest layoffs that left approximately 150 people without jobs and saw the cancellation of several shows. Stelter said that it had been a painful process for CNN, and framed the cuts as the result of an industry under strain. He pointed to CNN's efforts to reshape its programming, keep the cost of employees down, pressure for the parent company Time Warner to boost its stock price and cable being increasingly threatened by online viewing options. Stelter said: Now, there is some overall…
  • Introducing the Kosher HECM Reverse Mortgage

    19 Oct 2014 | 5:33 pm
    The kosher stamp on a food means that it has been certified as fit for human consumption. We need a comparable certification process for financial instruments sold to consumers, with the need most pronounced for the more complex instruments. When scaled by the need for certification, HECM reverse mortgages are at the top. They are extremely complex, and markedly different from the standard mortgages that many seniors learned about when they took one earlier in their lives to purchase homes. This article describes the major features of a kosher HECM reverse mortgage. It does not yet exist, but…
  • Nonprofit Risk and Crisis Management: Challenges for the 21st Century

    19 Oct 2014 | 1:57 pm
    The nonprofit leadership literature recommends that every nonprofit organization have a comprehensive crisis management plan, but it has little focus on risk. Perhaps nonprofit boards are too risk averse and are really unable to maximize their resources to assist clients? Is it that nonprofit boards see little personal gains from taking reasonable risks fearing potential reputation and financial losses? I reviewed over 300 nonprofit articles related to nonprofit crises and related risks; only a handful centered on how a nonprofit board can respond to handling risk and crises in a strategic…

    Europeans went in May to the polls to vote for their representatives to the European Parliament. The results were surprising, as parties in the far right and skeptics of the European Union grew in popularity, picking up seats in the political organization. If anything, the vote was a testament to how unhappy people were with the status quo.

  • Time Warner Cable's Advertised $89.99 Triple Play: Now $190.77. What the F@$#X$!?

    18 Oct 2014 | 7:01 pm
    From: "The Book of Broken Promises: $400 Billion Broadband Scandal & Free the Net" This is my October 2014 Time Warner "Triple Play" bill. When I signed up, less than two years ago, it was advertised at $89.99 and today, less than two years later, the actual price is 110% more -- now $190.77. Click for Full Size. Fact is -- you can never, ever get the advertised price because it doesn't include many of the fixed costs, like the set top box, not to mention it is littered with pass-throughs of the company's taxes and fees, including the cable franchise fees. To add insult to injury, there are a…
  • This Is Your Brain on Money: Why America's Rich Think Differently Than the Rest of Us

    18 Oct 2014 | 2:08 pm
    Consider the following recent headlines: -- What The Middle Class Doesn't Understand About Rich People -- 9 Things Rich People Do Differently Every Day -- 15 Surprising Ways Rich People Think Differently The Internet is replete with apologias for the rich. They are thinly sourced and even less well-thought. The goal is simple: to justify the unjustifiable chasm between the rich and poor, globally and within our nation. But the irony is that, rather than being better than the rest of us, in many ways the rich are worse. Paul Piff and his co-authors, who have done extended research on the…

    "That's how long I want to live: 75 years .... Living too long ... robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic." -- From "Why I Hope to Die at 75," by Ezekiel Emanuel, The Atlantic, Sept. 2014 In his final years, my dad was hospitalized several times. He had a blockage in his kidney. He fell and broke his hip. He passed away last year, finally succumbing to old age and cancer. I…

  • Economic Malaise Clouds Florida Governor's Race

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:52 am
    LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — By many measures, Republican Rick Scott should have a strong case for a second term as governor. Elected four years ago, the former businessman reduced taxes, cut regulations and recruited businesses to help revive the economy. Florida is bouncing back, and Scott is claiming credit for adding 613,000 jobs and trimming unemployment to 6.1 percent. But along this stretch of central Florida, a crucial swing-voting area, the numbers are little more than an abstraction to middle-class voters who see a tepid turnaround. "I keep hearing there's a recovery, but I don't know if…

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:08 am
    KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — The Ukrainian president has said his country has reached an agreement with Russia on supplies of natural gas for the winter. When Russia cut off gas supplies to Ukraine in June over unpaid bills, it raised the risk that Ukraine would be left without heating during the coldest months of the year. It also raised fears that Russia could cut off flows to Europe if Ukraine began siphoning off gas from the pipelines crossing its territory, as has happened during past gas disputes. President Petro Poroshenko said in a television interview late Saturday that Russia has agreed…

  • Mad About the '60s... Fearful Fail-Safes, Then and Now

    18 Oct 2014 | 9:10 pm
    (Note: This is one in a series of occasional pieces in the run-up to the series finale of 'Mad Men' with cultural relevance to the period of the show and today.) Thanks to the Camelot myth, the popular sense of the early 1960s is that it was mostly a time of light and celebration which came to an abrupt end with the November 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. But the reality, as most Mad Men viewers know, is much more complex. Indeed, the symbol of all that optimism, avatar of the New Frontier, JFK himself -- in addition to boosting the nascent James Bond franchise by naming…
  • From Lizzy Bennet to Fanny Price: My Jane Austen Journey

    18 Oct 2014 | 7:12 pm
    At age 12, my obliviousness was a survival instinct. As my peers experimented with make-up and clothes, I wore a sports bra to school, my hair frizzing into the stratosphere. Most days were spent doing what I loved best -- reading. Inevitably then, my mother one day showed me the six-hour spectacle of Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle falling in love despite their best efforts. But my first exposure to Jane Austen only left me with more questions: Did people really have hair like that back then? Why so many hats? Is there nothing to do in England except go on walks and eavesdrop? How could a man…

    The month of October is the kick-off before the holidays. Stores are already filled with holiday decorations, and the smell of Halloween candy three aisles down is looming in the air. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I love to go all-out. A lot of my friends love Halloween as well, so it becomes a several-night affair instead of a grand, one-night party. However, when I start reminding myself of all of the holiday gifts/travel/decorations costs, I have to pull back the reigns and find something reasonable.

    17 Oct 2014 | 12:22 pm
    Brandy Melville offers fashion for "diverse California girls." And in Brandy Melville's opinion, this diversity is reflected in one size: small. I don't think it causes a negative effect on the body image of any one of our shoppers because anyone can come in the store and find something. At other places, certain people can't find things at all. Thus spoke Sairlight Saller, visual manager for Brandy Melville, the latest addition to the growing list of Lululemons, Abercrombies and American Apparels -- fashion brands who fail to understand that violating cultural sensibilities by propagating…

It degrades women and even the women who think they're not being degraded are. It's not like joyful, conscious, balanced people choose that industry. I think of the women who fought for us to vote in America, who wanted to be able to go to school, who wanted to have jobs that only men had. We're still trying to get paid the same salary.

    Have you ever wondered what our world would be like if charitable giving was a part of every business model? I know I have. While it's a given that any philanthropist wants to have wealth trickle back to society in a way that has the most impact by tackling the world's biggest problems and funding the most likely solutions the question that remains is where to begin. For me, the answer is a rather obvious one. We must begin with the premise that every life is of equal value. There in lies the starting point. A truth that is as simple as it is complicated as the needs are, seemingly endless.

    19 Oct 2014 | 9:46 pm
    BEIJING (AP) — A bear in central China has bitten off the arm of a 9-year-old boy who tried to feed it through its cage, state media and a doctor said Sunday. Media reports said the attack happened Saturday afternoon at Pingdingshan Hebin Park in Henan province, which has a zoo inside. The boy managed to push his arm through the bear's cage to feed it when the bear bit him. A doctor at the Pingdingshan Number 152 Hospital, who treated the boy, said Sunday that he lost his entire right arm, which had to be amputated. Calls to the park and local forestry bureau were not answered.

    We meet at a Malibu coffee shop, 8:45 a.m. sharp. Our mission: Hike down Malibu Canyon and collect the trash congesting the freshwater riparian habitat around Malibu Creek's Rindge Dam. Like most acts of voluntarism this is a labor of love. The goal is to get the discarded plastic and glass bottles, boogie boards, swim noodles and beach chairs, abandoned socks and shoes (some in pairs), t-shirts, towels and a sea of cigarette butts, before seasonal rain washes this detritus into the Pacific. Malibu Creek drains into the ocean at legendary Surfrider beach (think Gidget and the 1990's longboard…
  • Great White Sharks Thrash In Waters Off Massachusetts In Video

    19 Oct 2014 | 6:24 pm
    Because two is indeed better than one, here are TWO great white sharks putting on a show in the waters off Chatham, Massachusetts. Post by Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. The video taken Saturday by Scott Koerner, director of IT at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, shows seemingly tranquil waters erupt with a flurry of fins and sea spray as two white sharks break the surface. The video was shared by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy the day after the sighting. White sharks, also known as great white sharks, are not uncommon in the North Atlantic. A 2014 study found the…
  • Hurricane Ana Made For A Rainy Weekend In Hawaii

    19 Oct 2014 | 3:30 pm
    HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii residents started to relax Sunday after days of keeping a cautious eye on Hurricane Ana, which was downgraded by late afternoon into a tropical storm. After churning dangerously close for several days the closest Ana got to Hawaii was about 70 miles southwest of the island Niihau on Sunday, leaving the state soaked but largely unscathed. "It was a fortuitous track," said Chris Brenchley, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Honolulu. Preparations for the storm began last week, with residents stocking up on bottled water, shelters opening and various…
  • These Advocates Are Raising Awareness For Ridiculously Adorable Sloths

    19 Oct 2014 | 8:29 am
    As if we need an excuse to celebrate sloths. Sunday is International Sloth Day, which aims to draw the public's attention not only the creature's cuteness factor, but also promote the respect of its natural environment and protection. And The Sloth Institute Costa Rica is doing just that. Primatologist and founder of the organization Sam Trull, and her friend and volunteer Seda Sejud spend their days caring for the algae-eating animals that often end up injured or orphaned due to man's impact on their natural habitat. Running a rescue clinic in coordination with Kids Saving the Rainforest…

  • Good Jobs or Healthy Planet? We Can Have Both

    18 Oct 2014 | 7:25 pm
    If we really want to fix the environment, then we need to join coalitions with organizations that focus on changing our economic system too. This article is published as part of New Economy Week and in Yes Magazine. We are heading toward a potentially severe clash between environmentalists who advocate for reducing carbon emissions and community and labor activists who are most concerned about jobs, racial equity, and reducing wealth inequality. Our urgency about the climate catastrophe does not trump equity concerns. Both the climate crisis and the wealth gap are deepening -- and both will…
  • When Our Responses to Drought Make Things Worse

    18 Oct 2014 | 8:19 am
    In a new study just published by the journal Sustainability Science (Springer), analysis from the Pacific Institute shows that many of the fundamental responses of California water users to severe drought actually make the state's overall water conditions worse -- that in the end, many of these actions are "maladaptations." Water is a complex resource; and water problems are an equally complex mix of natural resource, technology, social, economic and political conditions. When water is limited, such as in water-short areas or during extreme events such as droughts, society puts in place a…
  • Do You Know Your Dog's Emotional IQ?

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:58 pm
    In my last post, I opened a discussion on the emotional life of dogs, sharing one of my favorite books on the subject, Animals Make Us Human, by Temple Grandin. In her book, she spotlights a study by neuroscientist Jaak Panksepp in which he lists key emotions common to all mammals. In Part One, I began with two: Seeking and Play. According to Dr. Panksepp, these happy centers can only exist when a mammal -- here a dog -- is content and comfortable in his surroundings. Now for the other three: fear, frustration and panic. Though those may seem dark by comparison, there are healthy levels of…

  • Bear Bites Off Boy's Arm In Chinese Zoo

    19 Oct 2014 | 9:46 pm
    BEIJING (AP) — A bear in central China has bitten off the arm of a 9-year-old boy who tried to feed it through its cage, state media and a doctor said Sunday. Media reports said the attack happened Saturday afternoon at Pingdingshan Hebin Park in Henan province, which has a zoo inside. The boy managed to push his arm through the bear's cage to feed it when the bear bit him. A doctor at the Pingdingshan Number 152 Hospital, who treated the boy, said Sunday that he lost his entire right arm, which had to be amputated. Calls to the park and local forestry bureau were not answered.

  • 'Water Cops' Hunt For Sprinkler Scofflaws As California Remains Parched By Drought

    19 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct 19 (Reuters) - It was still dark on Kokomo Drive in Sacramento's Natomas district as Paul Brown edged his city-issued Honda Civic past a row of beige stucco houses with tiny front lawns, looking for water wasters. He heard the scofflaws before he saw their lush green lawns amid the otherwise parched turf. The buzz of a sprinkler system gave them away on a day that the city, desperate to save water amid California's ongoing drought, had forbidden watering. "If I can get a good picture - if there's a lot of water - I'll cite them," he said. California…

  • Bears Locker Room Gets 'Ugly' After Latest Home Loss

    19 Oct 2014 | 4:19 pm
    The atmosphere in the Chicago Bears' locker room didn't sound pleasant after yet another home loss on Sunday. Following a 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins at Soldier Field, a place where the Bears haven't won yet this season, several reporters tweeted about the tempestuous postgame scene. A couple of reporters described the locker room as "ugly" and tweeted that several players were yelling at each other. According to Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com, Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall called out quarterback Jay Cutler and yelled at kicker Robbie Gould. After the commotion died down, Marshall…
  • Florida State Holds Off Notre Dame After Late Penalty Negates Last-Minute Touchdown

    18 Oct 2014 | 9:10 pm
    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — With Florida State's perfect record still intact and a second-half rally against Notre Dame complete, Jameis Winston and coach Jimbo Fisher shared a hug as the crowd exploded in celebration. Winston had done it again. "He has a drive to win," Fisher said. "He has a drive for greatness." No. 2 Florida State bounced back from a 17-10 halftime deficit and won its 23rd consecutive game by holding off No. 5 Notre Dame 31-27 on Saturday night. The win came after another week of controversy for Winston, who has been the subject of a sexual assault allegation and a student…
  • Jimmy John's Noncompete Agreement, All Mapped Out

    17 Oct 2014 | 2:55 pm
    WASHINGTON -- As Huffington Post reported on Monday, many workers at Jimmy John's sandwich shops have been asked to sign the sort of strict noncompete agreement usually reserved for high-level executives. According to the clause, the worker agrees not to take a job at a competing sandwich shop for a period of two years following employment at Jimmy John's. The company's definition of "competitor" is rather broad: any business that derives 10 percent or more of its revenue from the sale of sandwiches, and that resides within 3 miles of a Jimmy John's location. After HuffPost posted a copy of…
  • Colleges Are Already Screwing Up New Campus Safety Law That Includes Domestic Violence

    Colleges have to count more types of incidents as hate crimes and disclose the number of dating violence, domestic violence and stalking reports they receive each year, under final safety law regulations unveiled Friday by the U.S. Department of Education. However, the department had already asked schools to list those new categories in the annual crime reports released this year. At least 23 institutions (listed below) failed to include them, though the Education Department will not say whether colleges will face fines for not complying with those new rules that were already in place.

Open House Chicago returns this weekend to give visitors from around the globe the rare opportunity to step inside some of the city's most treasured landmarks typically closed from public view. The now-annual event run by the Chicago Architecture Foundation (CAF) provides a city-wide history lesson spanning 18 neighborhoods and 150 structures, CAF officials told The Huffington Post. This year, though, a handful of landmarks on the tour will open to guests for the first time in more than half a century. Among the most anticipated is the…

  • Illinois Deserves Better Than the Chicago Tribune

    17 Oct 2014 | 12:30 pm
    The Chicago Tribune endorsed Bruce Rauner in the GOP Primary and it's now endorsed him for the General Election too. This comes as a surprise to no one. No doubt the editorial board already had its love letter written and ready to go even as the Tribune had one diligent reporter in Tampa three weeks ago covering the first days of an ongoing trial in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Plaintiffs there seek to prove that private equity firm GTCR participated in a massive, fraudulent scheme to unlawfully hide assets and thus prevent nursing home victims' families from recovering for the suffering and death…
  • Former Indiana Governor Explains What's Wrong With Illinois

    As Illinois moves ever-closer to decision time on finding a new governor, could our elected officials learn something from looking at our neighbors? Scott Reeder spoke with former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels about how he ran his state and his advice for his friends to the west. From Reeder: "I told my people early on in my administration that I wanted to build the best sandbox in America. I wanted to create an environment that encouraged the hiring of people and more investment in Indiana," he said. "I asked them to consider what they can do better, faster - or stop doing - to ensure that the…

  • How Google Glass Apps Showcase the Potential of Wearable Educational Technology

    Last month Google made its wearable Glass product available to the general public for the first time. While you no longer need to be an invited Google Glass Explorer to play around with the pioneering (albeit unfashionable) platform, you still need $1,500 to get one shipped to you from the Google Play Store. It's unclear whether this high profile focus on wearable computing will come anywhere close to matching the success of Google's Android operating system. Many, including famed tech commentator Robert Scoble, believe that Glass is not ready for prime time and will ultimately sink like…
  • Highest-paid Illinois College Football Coaches

    17 Oct 2014 | 6:19 am
    College football can be a huge money maker for schools. On top of being a way to generate revenue, good football teams can also help a school attract prospective students. Football is essentially a major investment for colleges, and their board members are willing to shell out big bucks to hire and retain football coaches who can win and provide the maximum return on that investment. While football might not be as big in Illinois as it is in the South, particularly the Southeastern Conference -- where University of Alabama Head Coach, Nick Saban, made $5.4 million last year -- coaches at…

  • Rudy Giuliani, George Pataki And 2 Congressmen Plan Protest Of 'The Death of Klinghoffer' At Metropolitan Opera

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:42 am
    NEW YORK (AP) — Some big-name politicians are joining Jewish protesters in a growing firestorm against an opera they say glorifies Palestinian terrorists. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Gov. George Pataki and two U.S. congressmen are among hundreds expected outside the Metropolitan Opera on Monday to protest the Met premiere of "The Death of Klinghoffer." It's based on the 1985 murder of a disabled Jewish passenger, Leon Klinghoffer, on the Achille Lauro, an Italian cruise ship hijacked by four members of the Palestinian Liberation Front. The 69-year-old New York retiree was…

    OSIJEK, Croatia (AP) — Former Auschwitz guard Jakob Denzinger lived the American dream. His plastics company in the Rust Belt town of Akron, Ohio, thrived. By the late 1980s, he had acquired the trappings of success: a Cadillac DeVille and a Lincoln Town Car, a lakefront home, investments in oil and real estate. Then the Nazi hunters showed up. In 1989, as the U.S. government prepared to strip him of his citizenship, Denzinger packed a pair of suitcases and fled to Germany. Denzinger later settled in this pleasant town on the Drava River, where he lives comfortably, courtesy of U.S.
  • A Revolt Against Austerity?

    There was a bit of good news from Europe last week. Two of the nations that desperately need some respite from austerity essentially told German Chancellor Merkel to stuff it. France, under pressure from Germany and the European Union to meet the E.U.'s straightjacket requirement of deficits of no more than three percent of GDP (whether or not depression looms) informed the E.U. that they will not hit this target until 2017. The government of President Francois Hollande, under fire for failing to ignite a recovery, now plans economic stimulus measures -- and the target be damned. Under E.U.

  • Romania: A Sad Country Full of Humor

    18 Oct 2014 | 12:53 pm
    Constanta, the Romanian city on the Black Sea coast, is perhaps best known for being the place of Ovid's exile in the first century AD when it was known as the Roman port of Tomis. The poet, having fallen afoul of Emperor Augustus for some mysterious offense, found himself at age 50 on the edge of the Roman Empire in a place where no one spoke Latin. This was no doubt a sad country for Ovid, a poet of sly good humor judging from his famous Art of Love. When I visited Constanta last year, I paid my respects to Ovid's statue, which stands outside the history and archaeology museum in a square…
  • The Ray of Hope from Nigeria Should Inspire Us to Provide Safe Schools for Every Girl

    LONDON -- Finally, a ray of hope for the more than 270 Chibok girls whose abduction by Boko Haram on April 14 has led to six months of captivity -- six months during which the girls' parents did not even know whether their daughters were dead or alive. The announcement on Friday of a potential cease-fire with Boko Haram and the strong rumor that the girls will be released on Monday is a vindication of the work of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan and of the campaigning zeal of the Bring Back Our Girls movement, which have never allowed the girls to simply vanish from the public eye.

    18 Oct 2014 | 7:16 am
    Following the non-binding British Parliament's recognition of Palestine, it has been written a lot about Israel's inaction regarding the peace process. While reporting on Israel's politics and policy, it is important to draw the full picture -- most Israelis want peace. Since Israel's very early existence, Israeli leaders have always believed that we must shape our future by ourselves. The best and most memorable example, of course, is the Israeli declaration of independence, made by David Ben-Gurion in 1948. Ben-Gurion knew that the decision was fraught with risks, and yet decided to go on…

    With the U.S. currently engaged in an air-war against ISIS in Iraq and Syria and with voices now calling for deeper engagement in both conflict zones, the American public is being bombarded with commentary and analysis about ISIS, Syria and Iraq, and Muslims. Unfortunately, too much of it is shallow -- mostly a stringing together of clichés. More disturbing still, is the extent to which this crisis has provoked another round of uninformed conversation about Arabs and Islam fueling fear and hatred of Arab and Muslim Americans. While a few knowledgeable individuals have been invited for rare…

    Bad Lip Reading has taken another stab at "The Walking Dead," transforming intense clips from Season 4 into a string of absurd conversations. Among bits about French babies, inconveniently placed railings and questionably magical kittens, we are left with classic lines like, "There ain't a man alive who doesn't want to get his butt washed in the Jedi fountain," and, "Why can't everybody just be like Prince: an angel with a little afro."

They were amused, to say the least. Actor Larry Murphy was even indignant that he hadn't been considered to reprise his role.

    18 Oct 2014 | 6:51 am
    It sounds like a specialized question, but it's not. Most authors on tour get it a lot. For some reason, people who read a book only under duress seem to think of King as the touchstone of all things literary. If you know him, your reality as an author is verified, whether they'll ever bother to read a book of yours or not. I've been asked this annoying question countless times by cab drivers when I'm doing book tours across the country and they discover why I'm in town. It's almost always the first question. So, here are some sample answers to help out all you road-weary, flummoxed authors…
  • The Happiest Place on Earth Depresses This Mom

    17 Oct 2014 | 12:55 pm
    Intelligent children (who are well-organized and can understand calendars and priorities) are a dangerous thing. Yes, I was coerced by little people who cannot vote, serve in the armed forces, drink, drive, gamble or plan a well-balanced meal (but who know our yearly passes expire soon) to go to Disneyland. It was Wednesday and not a holiday, so I anticipated the excursion would be rather harmless. But that was before I realized there is a huge "Haunted Mansion" cult out there who thinks observing this ride decorated with pumpkins for Halloween is worth missing both school and work. In other…
  • Plane Diverted After Ebola Virus Reclines in Seat

    17 Oct 2014 | 12:48 pm
    Global Odyssey Worldwide Travel Flight 416 from West Africa to New York was forced to divert to Italy when passenger William Lockhold objected to the Ebola virus in front of him reclining in its seat. "During the screening of Blended, the Ebola virus attempted to recline but the passenger behind it had attached a Knee Defender device to his tray table," says Global Odyssey Worldwide Travel spokesperson Mikael Nichester. "We do not allow the use of any devices that will restrict seat reclining or affect the comfort of dangerous infectious diseases traveling internationally." According to…
  • I'm With Stupid: Shark-riding Babes and Vigilante Surf Wolves

    17 Oct 2014 | 9:28 am
    I've been back in Colorado for nearly two weeks now after my brief sojourn to Oahu, but I have to be honest: In my mind, I'm still in Hawaii. This has caused a bit of a problem with the time difference, as I've decided it gives me license to get up four hours later than normal, but the upside is that while you're all shivering in the early-morning cold, I'm still in bed, dreaming of palm trees and perfect waves. The best part is that in my dreams I can actually surf those waves without vomiting, which, as we discussed last week, is something I apparently can't do in my waking life. It was a…

  • 'The Walking Dead' Bad Lip Reading Part 2 Proves Glue Police Isn't A Real Thing

    19 Oct 2014 | 9:46 am
    Bad Lip Reading has taken another stab at "The Walking Dead," transforming intense clips from Season 4 into a string of absurd conversations. Among bits about French babies, inconveniently placed railings and questionably magical kittens, we are left with classic lines like, "There ain't a man alive who doesn't want to get his butt washed in the Jedi fountain," and, "Why can't everybody just be like Prince: an angel with a little afro." Watch the video above.

    Some Halloween memories are so embarrassing that we'd rather they be forgotten. Thankfully, we have Jimmy Fallon's "Hashtags" to ensure that never actually happens. This week, Fallon asked for everyone's best #HalloweenFail tweets, and some are so ridiculous that you'll definitely raise your eyebrows, unless you're going as Dr. Evil, of course. "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
  • Here's What The Cast Of 'Bob's Burgers' Has to Say About The 'Bob's Burgers' Porn Parody

    19 Oct 2014 | 9:30 am
    This month, animated sitcom "Bob's Burgers" received what might just be the highest recognition of a television show's success and pop cultural impact: its own porn parody. Finally, the show's Emmy will have something worthy to share a shelf with. Mobile news site NowThis News caught up with the cast at PaleyFest and got their take on the parody. They were amused, to say the least. Actor Larry Murphy was even indignant that he hadn't been considered to reprise his role. "The casting of Teddy -- it was like, why did nobody approach me," he told NowThis. The others were supportive of the parody…
  • Let Us Explicitly Tell You Why These Costumes Are Wrong. Because Ignorance Is Spooky

    It wouldn't be Halloween season without the following standard racist, sexist and offensive-all-around costumes. "But it's all in good fun!" you probably want to exclaim. O rly? Here's why that is simply not true. Before you jump down to the comment section to declare that we need to lighten up, please remember these basic rules: Most cultures prefer not to have their rich history reduced to drunken pageantry. Commentary about women’s bodies should not be purchased in a clear plastic bag at a local Halloween warehouse store. Mocking serious social issues of our time will just make you seem…

  • Jennifer Lopez, 45, in 'Booty' Video: Thanks for Showing Women They Can Be Ageless

    Bonnie Fuller
    22 Sep 2014 | 10:44 am
    JLo, you just redefined the image that the world has of a 45-year-old woman. You celebrate the sexual power of a beautiful big booty in your new "Booty" video and destroy the idea that women over 40 are over. Jennifer Lopez, when you and Iggy Azalea, 24, shake up a storm, singing and showing off your womanly backsides in your just-released video, "Booty," you're doing more than just getting sexy. Yes, you've created the most sensual music video of 2014 and maybe ever, but you've also made a statement about female sexuality and beauty that's historically empowering. Since the dawn of time,…
  • PepsiCo's Female CEO Says You Can't Be A Good Mom and Leader -- You Can

    Bonnie Fuller
    8 Jul 2014 | 3:29 pm
    The renowned female CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi, admitted in an interview that she believes that career women can't be great moms as well. I couldn't disagree more -- here's why. There's no doubt that PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, 58, is an incredible role model for young women -- she combines a stellar career with a solid marriage and two daughters. But she made some very frank and surprising remarks about career and motherhood when she was interviewed at the Aspen Ideas Festival on June 30 by David Bradley, owner of the Atlantic Media Company. Indra confessed that even though she has…

    Bonnie Fuller
    30 Jun 2014 | 8:15 am
    Matt Lauer, you are surrounded by strong women on the Today show, so why would you even think of asking Mary Barra if she could be a good mom if she's a CEO? Matt Lauer, when you asked CEO Mary Barra on the Today show on June 26 if she could run General Motors and still be a good mom, it sounded like a sexist insult. After all, virtually all the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are men, and have you ever asked any of them if they can be good dads and CEOs? I don't think so. That's why you've been the subject of scathing criticism ever since you interviewed Mary in Detroit and had the…

Here's why the author of Hard Choices, should be our next president. 1. Hillary Rodham Clinton Would Be a Fabulous President BECAUSE She's a Woman You know that phrase, "When you're number two, you always try harder?" Well, sadly, it's still true that women are the second sex in this country. Women make up more of the overall population than men -- 161 million versus 156.1 million -- and received 25 percent more of the college degrees than men in…
  • 'My Five Wives' Premiere Proves Polygamist Wives are Sad and Lonely

    10 Mar 2014 | 8:38 am
    Why oh why do supposedly modern women get conned into sharing their husband with several other wives? There's no compelling reason why Brady Williams' five wives have given up the love of a monogamous soulmate in TLC's new show, 'My Five Wives.' Here's the deal. My Five Wives star, Brady Williams, claims that going public about his polygamous lifestyle with five wives is "liberating," and yeah, maybe sex with five wives is better than one. But marriage for his attractive harem seems anything but fun and freeing. 'My Fives Wives' Premiere Recap: Wives Are Sadder And Lonelier Than Kody Brown's…

  • John Oliver and Bill O'Reilly: A Study in Two Very Different Views of Obama

    3 Oct 2014 | 2:14 pm
    If you were in a coma for the last six years, then suddenly awakened this past weekend to observe both John Oliver's Last Week Tonight on HBO and Bill O'Reilly's appearance on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, you might assume they were talking about the military actions of two very separate and distinct presidents. On one hand, there was Bill O'Reilly who continued to push for a stronger response to Islamic jihad. Not only should the president seek to hire a mercenary army of 25,000 privateers, but we should also somehow recruit Zombie Patton to roll into Syria with the Third Army from…
  • GOP Continues to Blow Off Rule About Not Criticizing the President During Wartime

    Bob Cesca
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:59 pm
    The biggest news of the past 10 days: President Obama launched the first sorties into Syria, targeting ISIS terrorists. Within 24 hours, however, Republicans everywhere decided to turn an awkward salute into a near-impeachable crime against humanity, thus violating one of their most sacred rules from the Bush administration era: never criticize the commander-in-chief during wartime. Here's just another friendly reminder of what I thought was the rule about this kind of behavior (note that O'Reilly and Hannity have been especially critical of Obama): "You don't criticize the commander-in-chief…
  • The New and 'Edgy' Meet the Press Explains the Midterms Using Chicken, Coffee, and a 'Nerd Screen'

    Bob Cesca
    23 Sep 2014 | 3:14 pm
    There are a few things we know about the current status of Meet the Press. As Chez Pazienza pointed out, the way NBC News forced David Gregory out of his job was horrendously bad form. Like or dislike Gregory's style, there's no justifying the way he was tossed out. Nevertheless, NBC's choice for a replacement was essentially a lateral move -- swapping Gregory for MSNBC's Chuck Todd, who's basically the same person, torn from the same establishment circuit. There's really nothing Chuck Todd brings to the show that David Gregory didn't already provide. Except for one thing. Those of us old…

    On Thursday, President Obama held a press conference in which he discussed the economy as well as two of the most critical foreign policy issues in the world: the ISIS threat and the situation in Ukraine. On the economy, the president reported: This morning we found out that our economy actually grew at a stronger clip in the second quarter than we originally thought. Companies are investing, consumers are spending. Over the past four and a half years, our businesses have now created nearly 10 million new jobs. So there are reasons to feel good about the direction we're headed. On ISIS and…

  • In Defense of This World Series

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:58 am
    In recent days there have been a number of articles asserting that the 2014 postseason is either boring or not lucrative for MLB because of the absence of any teams with a national following, like the New York Yankees or the Boston Red Sox. Leaving aside the question of why an ordinary baseball fan should care whether or not ratings are up for the World Series, these assertions, at least with regards to the teams and the game on the field, are inaccurate. Clearly baseball isn't for everybody. Some people did not grow up with the game and have never fully learned the beauty and nuance of…
  • Does the Better Team Win in Baseball's Postseason?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    8 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Over the course of the 162 game baseball season of 2014, four teams won 94 or more games. Today as four teams remain in baseball's postseason tournament, only one of those teams is still playing. The Washington Nationals led the NL with 96 wins; the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim led the AL with 98 wins, but neither team made it out of the first round of the playoffs. Both teams were defeated in the LDS by teams that did not muster even 90 wins. For some this reflects the excitement and dynamism of the postseason, but for others it is in indication that the postseason, as it is now structured,…
  • Pedro Martinez Shows Solidarity With a Young Pitcher

    Lincoln Mitchell
    1 Oct 2014 | 2:12 pm
    For baseball fans, the end of September and beginning of October are a fun time. Playoff baseball often consists of tense, high-stakes and exciting games featuring the baseball's best players. It is also a time of mind-numbing cliches, lazy analysis and in, much of the media, an understanding of baseball that too often seems frozen sometime around the last Kansas City Royals World Series victory. Before last night's Royals-A's games, the analysts on TBS promised a great pitching duel largely because the Royals were starting James Shields. Shields, who as I learned yesterday, is nicknamed "Big…

    In recent days and weeks there has been renewed speculation that Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for president will again be a candidate in 2016. There has been some talk about this for months, but it has grown louder in recent days. Yesterday, The Washington Post described Mr. Romney's evolving potential candidacy as "The road from 'I'm not doing it again' to 'Circumstances can change' is paved with favorable polls, 2012 predictions that came true and public statements from supporters."

  • Leonard Cohen at 80

    Lincoln Mitchell
    22 Sep 2014 | 11:35 am
    Anybody familiar with Leonard Cohen knows the haunting often depressing beauty of his lyrics. In his early years performing, Mr. Cohen's unrelenting grimness became something of a joke. The British media, for example, in the 1960s and 1970s frequently referred to him as "Laughing Len." Laughing Len turns 80 today; and his music can still invoke great sadness. The first verse of one of the songs on his newest album is as depressing as anything Mr. Cohen wrote in the 1960s or 1970s. "I saw some people starving. There was murder; there was rape. Their villages were burning.They were trying to…

    When high school students in Jefferson County, Colorado walked out in protest against the right-wingers on the school board who purged their history curriculum of content they deemed "unpatriotic" they probably learned more in a week of direct action than they could learn in a year of going to class. Not content to write a letter of complaint, or sign a petition, or tap "Like" on a Facebook page - these young people hit the streets in the grand tradition of civil disobedience in America; the same tradition the Jefferson County school board seeks to airbrush out.

  • Ken Burns' 'The Roosevelts' Reveals Everything Wrong With Our Current Political Class

    Joseph A. Palermo
    21 Sep 2014 | 5:39 pm
    Ken Burns' seven-part PBS series on the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, is a remarkable achievement. Burns sheds a poignant new light on the personal and public lives of three monumental figures in 20th Century American history. And in doing so, he illustrates the relative rottenness of the hacks, partisans, and plutocrats who make up the political class that rules America today. By exploring the lives and times of TR, FDR, and ER Burns shows that in our not-so-distant past the governing institutions of this country were actually…

    Che Guevara famously called for "one, two, many Vietnams!" The idea was that constant warfare around the globe could at some point bleed dry the United States. Today, we hear similar calls for "one, two, many Iraqs!" Yet these noises aren't coming from a charismatic socialist revolutionary but from American foreign policy elites. Just over a year ago, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry were trying their best to drum up support for cruise missile strikes against the Syrian government of Bashir al-Assad. When confronted with the fact that the vast majority of Americans…

    It's difficult to write about the racial and political implications of the killing in Ferguson, Missouri, of an unarmed African-American teenager, Michael Brown, at the hands of a white police officer without rehashing what has been said a million times. When the inevitable incidents of police brutality or racially-tinged violence crop up -- be it Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, or Michael Brown -- you can count on a few news cycles featuring hand-wringing analysis followed by calls to action that everybody knows will never be answered. The only reason why the Ferguson conflict…
  • It Can Be Done: Negotiate an End to the Siege in Gaza

    Joseph A. Palermo
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:10 pm
    The gutless American political class has abdicated its responsibility for the actions of the Israel Defense Forces. Few people living in the Middle East or anywhere else make the distinction between the United States and Israel, nor should they with all those weapons stamped "made in the USA." It's supremely foolish to conclude that Israel can never negotiate with Hamas on lifting the siege of Gaza. The American rhetoric of spreading "freedom" has been a legitimizing argument dating back to the 1898 Spanish-American War when we were "liberating" the Cubans and Filipinos from the yoke of…

    25 Sep 2014 | 11:54 am
    At the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative this week, former President Bill Clinton predicted corporations would soon care less about maximizing profits and more about employees and society. This would happen without significant government involvement because "of proof that markets work better that way." Companies would understand that they gain greater overall success by taking care of their employees and doing good for more than only their shareholders. We should only hope. That revolution in the corporate worldview would be immensely important, to say the least. The focus on…

    This Tuesday, Zephyr Teachout is slated to lose the New York Democratic primary for governor to incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Many voters will be seeing her memorable name for the first time when they cast their vote. She has run a shoestring campaign against a powerful, lavishly funded governor who refused to debate her. But whatever the outcome, her campaign has already had dramatic significance for progressives across the country. Zephyr Teachout is a law professor at Fordham and a national expert on the deeply corrosive influence of big money in our politics. Her new book, Corruption in…

    Robert L. Borosage
    29 Aug 2014 | 1:34 pm
    On Labor Day weekend, we bid the summer goodbye. Families picnic; children play hard, knowing the school year is upon them. Politicians pay tribute to workers and to the rewards of hard work. But this Labor Day, workers are struggling to stay afloat. Incomes haven't gone up in the 21st century. Inequality reaches new extremes. A record portion of our national income goes to corporate profits, while a record low goes into workers' wages. Three-fourths of Americans fear their children will fare less well than they have. This Labor Day, we should do more than celebrate workers -- we should…

    Robert L. Borosage

    The launch of Hillary Clinton's yet undeclared candidacy for president -- in the form of the roll-out of her memoir, Hard Choices, an astounding two and a half years prior to the election -- has been marked by big media and silly gaffes. Tin eared and thin-skinned, Clinton, unlike her husband, has never been a "natural" as a candidate. She campaigns in prose, not poetry, crouched in a cautious, defensive posture that reveals the burdens, not the joys of the stump. But the efforts of Republicans -- and some Obama aides -- to use Clinton's inept comments about the family's wealth to paint her…

    The U.S. economy contracted in the first three months of 2014, according to revised figures issued by the Commerce Department, declining at an annual rate of 1 percent. With the economy expected to bounce back in the second quarter -- April to June -- the downturn received little attention, dismissed as "a hiccup, not a heart attack." But at Republican campaign committee headquarters, Champagne bottles surely were popped in celebration. The Republican strategy of obstructing any measure that would put people back to work is succeeding. More than 20 million people are in need of full-time…

Bach at the most coveted "two-performances-only" concert in town. No one could get tickets. I could because the lyric soprano Camilla Tilling is my friend. The night before I'd had a back stage pass and was the guest of the bass player. My ears are still ringing. Delta Spirit is a great band.

    1 Oct 2014 | 4:36 am
    Why do you think so many atheists seem so evangelistic? They even sometimes speak of their moment of "de-conversion" as a flip-side to the so-called born again experience. If life teaches us anything it's that certainty is overrated. The real life-lessons aren't found in intellectual theories much less in theology, but in seeing life through the lens of those we love most. For instance, I actually experienced brief and perfect instants when death lost its sting. Being with my granddaughter Lucy as she's grown up next door so far (she's just turned six) has helped me more honestly think…

  • VIDÉO. Un rhinocéros orphelin et un agneau jouent ensemble

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:26 am
    INSOLITE - Un rhinocéros et un agneau, un duo improbable? Pourtant ces deux là font la paire. Le centre pour les espèces menacées ou en voie de disparition de Hoedspruit en Afrique du sud a posté le 12 octobre une vidéo des deux meilleurs amis en train de jouer. Gertjie, le petit rhinocéros arrivé en février a vu sa mère se faire tuer par des braconniers. Secouru, il avait besoin d'un compagnon à quatre pattes pour s'habituer à la compagnie d'autres animaux.

  • Juppé séduit davantage les Français mais Sarkozy s'impose toujours dans l'électorat de l'UMP

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:25 am
    Alors qu'il affirme depuis plusieurs mois sa détermination à devenir le candidat de l'UMP en vue de l'élection présidentielle de 2017, Alain Juppé bénéficie aujourd'hui, auprès de l'ensemble des Français, d'une meilleure image que son principal rival à l'investiture, Nicolas Sarkozy. Sur tous les traits d'image testés dans l'enquête Ifop pour Sud-Ouest Dimanche, Alain Juppé apparaît en effet nettement devant Nicolas Sarkozy : il est ainsi jugé sympathique par 59% des Français (+20 points par rapport à l'ancien locataire de l'Elysée) et avoir l'étoffe d'un président de la…

Interrogée par Le Parisien dans une interview parue ce lundi 20 octobre, la maire du VIIe arrondissement de Paris et eurodéputée UMP évoque le retour de celui qu'elle a toujours soutenu. Aujourd'hui, selon elle, Nicolas Sarkozy ne peut plus se contenter de réclamer la poursuite de la politique menée entre 2002 et 2007. "La crise a profondément changé le pays, la gauche l’a fracturé. La France a besoin d’un nouveau projet qui ne peut pas se résumer à la réduction du déficit, du nombre de…

Alors que nombre d'historiens et de personnalités politiques contredisent et dénoncent ses thèses, il a trouvé ce lundi 20 octobre un défenseur en la personne de Jean-Marie Le Pen. "Eric est un homme intelligent et courageux (...), je le connais depuis longtemps, j'ai de la sympathie pour lui, j'ai de l'estime, parce que je sais quel courage il faut pour oser dire un certain nombre de choses", a déclaré le président d'honneur sur RMC et…

    The need for a harmonized communication system is paramount or infection will spread. A lack of smooth channels between departments within the hospital led to a combination of confusion and misguidance. Thanks to the whistleblowers, other secondary factors such as lack of proper equipment and disposal of medical waste appeared to be mishandled. Then there was the overall morale of those working inside, which seemed to be poor at best. While this could be expected, there was little questioning of the hospital when it apologized for its handling of the situation. Read more: Ebola, Ebola…

I know we like to support the underdog, but the underdog becomes relative to who's being bullied. This is why I find the term "reverse bullying" redundant.

    Fear of resurgent inflation has been a defining element of U.S. economic policy over the last five years, driving federal spending reductions, personal income tax increases, and, just this month, the end of the Federal Reserve's Quantitative Easing program. But that broad-based inflation has not materialized and we are left asking why? Read more: Inflation, Economy, US Government, Politics News

    Shannon Cutts
    8 Oct 2014 | 12:47 pm
    From the time I was eight, all I wanted to do was write songs. I wrote and wrote and wrote. I wrote for years, dreaming of the day I would hear one of my songs being sung on the radio by a famous singer. As I got older I found out many other songwriters had the same dream, so I started singing my songs myself. I entered a few song contests -- one year I even won! That was the year I realized other people's opinions are just opinions -- nothing less, and certainly nothing more. That particular year, some people -- people who happened to be contest judges -- liked my song enough to declare it…

    5 Feb 2014 | 2:27 pm
    Long gone are the days of the "anonymous Internet" when folks surfed and shared about their deepest fears and struggles under the protective cover of pseudonyms. Today, building a social media presence equates to constructing a very public and powerful platform to do good, influence public opinion, promote personally significant causes, and, well, change the world. Or at least that is what our Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, and other social networks allegedly have the potential to do.

    I will admit it. I occasionally (always) struggle to comprehend the editorials in my TIME magazine subscriptions. Or at least I did struggle until I figured out a useful strategy to combat this. Now I just skip the editorials entirely and flip straight to the back to read Joel Stein's column, the 10-question celebrity profile featurette and of course The Culture section, which contains more celebrities and lots of colorful pictures. A recent edition of TIME's The Culture lampooned actress Megan Fox for her poor choice of analogies when answering one of the press' many endless questions about…

    I have tried so hard to keep quiet in the recent spate of news headlines targeting the use of feeding tubes for pre-wedding diets, Lady Gaga's controversial body image tweets, and other similar spring season "thin ideal" viral media frenzies. But I have watched these topics circulating and recirculating for a couple of very long weeks now, and the truth is, I just can't. I was trying to stay mum because my usual policy regarding discussion of such potentially triggering topics is that "less is more", and the last thing I want to have to bear responsibility for is putting a dangerous idea…
  • Our Mentors Are Where We Are

    24 Feb 2011 | 5:54 am
    Have you ever heard the phrase, "Wherever you go, there you are"? The same could be said for our mentors. This past week I spoke to a crowd of several hundred students at Truman State University. The topic? Body image and eating disorders. The truth, as I shared with the students, is that most of us simply don't have time to stop and analyze all of the messages that come at us each day. Most of us don't even have time to stop and notice that those messages are there. Yet they mentor us. They affect us. They sink into our awareness anyway -- whether we invited them to do so or not. And once…
