  • Seattle Cop Who Issued 80 Percent Of Marijuana Tickets Reassigned

    By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE, July 30 (Reuters) - The Seattle Police Department has reassigned an officer who single-handedly issued about 80 percent of the marijuana tickets handed out in the city during the first half of this year, authorities said on Wednesday. Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole said staff reviewing data to prepare the department's first biannual report on marijuana enforcement found that 66 of 83 citations for public pot use were given out by just one officer. "In some instances, the officer added notes to the tickets," O'Toole said in a statement, adding that some of…

    My family name, "Maron," is a vestige of and a testament to the human capacity to hate. My family tradition tells the story of my ancestors' expulsion -- along with hundreds of thousands of other Jews -- from the Iberian Peninsula by royal Spanish decree in 1492 following an era of great success and coexistence there. Jews (and many Muslims) were given three options: convert to Christianity, leave their country and belongings, or die without trial.

  • This Is Your Brain on Legal Drugs: Let's End the Drug War With a Minimum of Casualties by Following the Science

    Arianna Huffington
    29 Jul 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Human beings sometimes have a troubling inability to hold two thoughts in mind at the same time. This is true not only when the two thoughts contradict each other but even when they simply appear to be in conflict with each other but actually aren't. And nowhere is there a greater need for us to get past this tendency than when discussing the ongoing war on drugs and the growing movement for the decriminalization of marijuana. It should be possible to say both that: 1) The drug war is an all-out disaster that has inflicted an untold amount of unnecessary human suffering. Therefore, as a first…

    This week provided some notable examples of Crime and Punishment in modern America. First, football star Ray Rice received a two-game suspension for knocking unconscious his then-fiancée in a hotel elevator. His coach promptly proclaimed Rice "a heck of a guy." Earlier in the week, Lane Johnson, another NFL player, was suspended four games for taking a performance enhancing drug -- a transgression apparently twice as bad, in the NFL's eyes, as beating up your soon-to-be-wife. In Arizona, the execution of murderer Joseph Wood went seriously awry, leaving him gasping for air for close to…
  • Here's What Happens When You Type 'Why Am' Into Google in New York

    Do you know what happens when you live in New York and you type the words "why am" into Google? Before you can type the next word, Google's Autocomplete function helpfully offers to complete your thought. The first suggestion: "why am I so tired?" The second: "why am I always tired?" The Zeitgeist perfectly captured by Google. As the Belgian philosopher Pascal Chabot has put it, burnout is "civilization's disease." True, the results of an algorithm lack the nuance and intellectual heft of a philosophical diagnosis, and the results are regional, but Autocomplete provides a valuable window into…

    This week, President Obama's $3.7 billion request to deal with the border crisis stalled as lawmakers introduced a bill that purportedly aims to help young unaccompanied immigrants but actually just makes it easier to quickly deport them -- a measure Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, dismissed as "the deportation-only agenda dressed up in sheep's clothing." The crisis is certainly a chance to look in the mirror and decide what kind of nation we want to be: one that holds up "return to sender" signs and walks through towns with AR-15 rifles to protest the…

    Over at the Columbia Journalism Review, Steven Brill has a "story he'd like to see." Specifically: What's the deal with "the Hillary alternatives?" You know, those other people who might compete in a Democratic primary in 2016. This is worth some discussion. Among the reasons I can think of that speak to why there isn't block-to-block coverage of other potential Democratic contenders (besides maybe Elizabeth Warren, more on that later) are: 1) it's 2014 at the moment, and maybe people are showing a modicum of restraint, and 2) Hillary Clinton is currently "freezing the field."

Peroutka has been under fire for months for his involvement in and leadership of the League of the South, a white nationalist group that advocates conservative, Christian theocracy and secession to form a Southern Republic. Top Democratic and Republican leaders had called for him to resign from the group. Most prominently, Maryland Republican gubernatorial…

    NEW YORK (AP) — His paintings made news worldwide, but it turns out that former President George W. Bush has been working on another, highly personal project since leaving the White House: He has quietly completed a biography of his father, former President George H.W. Bush. Crown Publishers told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the book, currently untitled, will be released November 11. In 2010, Crown published the younger Bush's million-selling memoir, "Decision Points." "George H.W. Bush is a great servant, statesman, and father," George W. Bush said in a statement issued by Crown.

  • Crisis at the Border: A Tragedy of Incentives

    30 Jul 2014 | 5:12 pm
    A picture by Jennifer Whitney for The New York Times perfectly captured the humanitarian crisis at the border. It has everything you need if you're looking for a way to get your heartstrings pulled at: It depicts a boy with a look of hope in his eyes handing over to a Border Patrol officer his birth certificate, which identifies him as Alejandro, age 8, and gives away his status as an unaccompanied minor of Honduran nationality who crossed the U.S. border illegally. The journeys across the desert of unaccompanied minors hoping to flee poverty and violence are not, by any means, a new fad. New…
  • Is Being Pro-Israeli or Palestinian a Viable Position to Hold?

    30 Jul 2014 | 4:58 pm
    In 1990, I went to Israel for a two-week study mission. I spent time in Gaza and the West Bank. I recall how evening conversations were periodically interrupted during my stay at a kibbutz in Kiryat Shmona by artillery fire coming from Lebanon. For those living in the area it was part of the routine, but my short stay did not afford me the time to grow accustom. I met with Palestinian and Israeli leaders, including future Prime Minister Ehud Omert. My overarching observation then, as it is now, was that right in this convoluted narrative was invariably based on who is telling the story. It is…
  • We're Fighting for Access, Not Choice

    30 Jul 2014 | 4:52 pm
    An article in Tuesday's New York Times focusing on limitations of the term "pro-choice" both over-claimed the recentness of this development and did not fully represent the history of questions about this framing. The issue isn't that "pro-choice" is no longer sufficient. It's that "pro-choice" was never sufficient for many women. I was sorry to see that the Times had not included those voices and missed the rich history of women of color fighting not just for "choice," but for full reproductive justice. And there's good reason for that fight. The concept of "choice" speaks only to those who…

  • Children's Deaths Prompt New York Governor's Bold Medical Marijuana Move

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday called for faster implementation of the state's medical marijuana law, which passed last month but won't take effect for another year and a half. In a letter to the state Health Department, Cuomo cited the deaths of two children from complications of seizure disorders who could have been treated with medical cannabis. The Huffington Post reported last week that the death of 9-year-old Anna Conte prompted drug reform advocates to demand that Cuomo find a way to speed access to medical marijuana for patients with chronic conditions. "The deaths ...

    WASHINGTON -– The World Bank has been working to update safeguards intended to ensure that development projects it backs don’t hurt people or the environment. But environmental and civil activists are pushing back on a draft of proposed safeguards leaked last week, arguing they would weaken the standards and fail to adequately address climate concerns. Nezir Sinani, climate change coordinator at the Bank Information Center, a group that monitors the World Bank, criticized the climate portion of the draft.

    My apartment had a mouse infestation when my HuffPost internship began in 2010. Today is my last day with the company, and I find myself thinking about one mouse from that time in particular.  On one of my first days in the old intern office, I was filing a story on Michael Vick's pit bulls when my bag shuffled an inch across the desk. Then it shuffled again. I began shrieking and flapping my hands around.  Among 15-odd strangers, one hauled open a jammed window as another rifled through my backpack's contents of sweaty gym clothes, sandwich wrappers and chewed-up pens.

  • How To Save the 'New York Times'

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:50 pm
    The New York Times is in trouble. The paper recently announced that earnings had declined by 54 percent in the second quarter. Then Wednesday, the paper said it was contemplating a 'shrunken' edition of the paper - a smaller printed edition. It would be tragic to see a great institution like the New York Times disappear, but it is entirely possible, I suppose. The problem with the newspaper is that they continue to see themselves as a newspaper, either a print version (smaller or larger makes no difference), or an online version of the same. They are not.

    The images from and about Gaza disseminated through social media are striking, searing, poignant and loaded with messages, proving, yet again, that a picture (or cartoon) is worth a thousand words. They range from neutral to graphic traditional media photos shot at the scene of events, alongside images from "citizen journalists" documenting Israel's onslaught on the densely populated strip, where most of the victims have been unarmed civilians, to cartoons and comic pictures making the point in more hard hitting or ironic terms.

Armed with extensive research and study in, well, nothing, she pontificates about addiction and addicts, beating the same drum every time addiction catches her eye. Without compassion or empathy, Peyser regaled us with her ignorance when Philip Seymour Hoffman died, and again this month when Kevin McEnroe, son of Tatum O'Neil and John McEnroe, was arrested on a drug charge. Peyser does not believe addiction is a…
  • The Iron Dome Inside the Heads of Israel's Leaders

    30 Jul 2014 | 10:02 am
    When you go to a dictionary to look up dome, you find lots of references to hemispherical structures or forms. You also find that it is slang word for the head. And so, it may not be much of a stretch to look at the "Iron Dome" counter-missile system utilized by the Israeli forces as a perfect metaphor for the men authorizing its deployment and use, the iron domes of the heads who head up Israel's military, and orchestrate its most assuredly not defensive war against Gaza. It is also a metaphor for the war itself. The finger pushing reliance on computer technology -- whether with domes or…

  • Reinventing Your Business: The Top 10 List

    30 Jul 2014 | 7:11 pm
    Everyone gets into a professional or business slump. The best of the best in their field have had the proverbial bump in the road. When it happened to me, it came in the form an emotional, physical and professional Tsunami. Sadly, with every forward step I made (and believe you me, these were baby steps), I slipped a half to two steps back. I had no knowledge of how to move forward, which is why it's my life's mission to help people with creative and innovate ways to problem solve and move ahead. Here's my recipe for a successful professional reinvention. 1. Look at your reinvention as a…

    The philanthropist sighs and says she has money to give, but no nonprofit will agree to carry out her intent as she envisions it. The executive director commiserates, saying he has a program that really helps the community, but he can't find the right donors to provide the money his nonprofit needs to keep operating. The bartender approaches and waits for them to stop talking. Then he asks if they would like a hammer. They look at him incredulously. "What about a pair of pliers?" They shake their heads.

    Funny thing about the mind is that thoughts are constantly and randomly generated. Dr. Bruce Davis says we have 50,000-70,000 thoughts per day which equates between 35-48 thoughts per minute per person. We are probably having thoughts now about how many thoughts we have a day which well, you see where this is going. Most of our thoughts are filled with positive and negative observations particularly about life, purpose, our bosses' annoying habits. Some thoughts are possible business or career ideas that never amount to anything. Every once in a while though, we have a thought about how great…

    On days when most of the headlines about banks make you consider storing all your money in a mattress, it's nice to see a financial firm break from the trend of "bad banks behaving badly." In an effort to thank its customers, TD Canada Trust went above and beyond offering free coffee and cookies; the bank deployed "Automated Thanking Machines" to branches across Canada that gave lucky customers some remarkable gifts, including trips, memorable experiences and fulfilled dreams, the Examiner reports.

  • Power Plant Bombed In Gaza Is Insured By U.S. Government

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:10 pm
    WASHINGTON -- As lawmakers on Capitol Hill scrambled to approve increased military funding for Israel this week, a little-noted federal agency across town prepared to spend as much as $84 million to compensate an American company for losses sustained in the Israeli bombardment of a Gaza power plant. The money would come from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, which helps U.S. companies expand business abroad in ways that, to quote OPIC's website, "help solve critical development challenges and in doing so, [it] advances U.S. foreign policy." The agency does all this in part by…

The pint-size galactic menace premiered during the 2011 Super Bowl and in those three years has been shared 5,372,945 times via Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere according to Unruly’s data.

    Giving up turned out to be the most liberating thing Uzo Aduba ever did. The actress skyrocketed to fame last year for playing fan favorite Crazy Eyes on "Orange Is The New Black," but the day she got the call that she was hired was one of the lowest she'd ever experienced. In fact, just hours before, she had decided to leave acting behind for good. "I had quit the day I got this job [on 'Orange']. It was the first time in my entire time pursuing this, in my heart and in my mind, that I actually was like, 'We need to hang this up,'" Aduba told HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill on Wednesday.

  • A-Sides with Jon Chattman: Volcano Girls Veruca Salt Set to Erupt Again

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:44 pm
    With apologies to L.L. Cool J, we all know how "comebacks" work. They usually, um, don't. You know the drill - a band breaks-up, disappear for awhile, and tour in support of a new album that fails to capture that old magic. Veruca Salt don't fit that mold, and although they just released their first new material in over 18 years, it doesn't seem like they ever left - at least for me. "Seether." "Volcano Girls." "Aurora." These are just some tracks that have been a part of the soundtrack to most of my adult life, and it feels like many tracks from the alt-rock band could fit on radio today…

    "YOU ARE an evil bastard! I should have stayed with Joe!" One of the more colorful quotes that erupted from Marilyn Monroe on the set of The Misfits, as her marriage to Arthur Miller turned to dry dust on the Nevada desert. This comes from the latest MM tome, Marilyn and Joe -- Legends in Love. It was written, at least partially, by the late C. David Heymann. He had a string of sizzling celebrity bestsellers behind him, before his death in 2012. •THIS is a problematic book.

  • Was David Duchovny's Family From Ukraine or Russia?

    30 Jul 2014 | 12:50 pm
    There's been quite a fuss about a nationalistic, Russian beer commercial David Duchovny made not long ago -- especially given that he recently discovered that his roots are actually in Ukraine. For obvious reasons, this is less than ideal timing. As a genealogist who also has Ukrainian roots, but grew up being told she was Russian (Smolenyak -- we must be from Smolensk, of course!), I decided to take a look into the specifics of Duchovny's case. It doesn't take much effort to learn that his grandfather was Moshe Duchovny, but that's where things start to get challenging. If you search Ellis…

  • Gunshot Wound Survivor Got Incredible Facial Transplant And Is Now Gracing The Pages Of GQ

The monumental procedure was what Dr. Rodriguez called the "most extensive of all face transplants performed to date" in a video by the Telegraph. Now, one 36-hour surgery and two years later, Norris has gone from hiding away in his parents' home to being featured in the August issue of GQ magazine,…
  • Katy Perry Addresses Cultural Appropriation Accusations, But Just Seems Really Annoyed

    30 Jul 2014 | 11:57 am
    It's hard not to like Katy Perry: she's bubbly, endearing and just, well, incredibly likable. But then she does things like that Geisha-inspired performance of "Unconditionally" at the American Music Awards. Each night of her Prismatic tour also features dancing mummies with big butts (which have also been viewed as racist by some critics). But as Perry explains in her August 2014 Rolling Stone cover story, it's not that she's trying to offend anyone, it just kind of happens that people get offended.

  • World Bank Faces Pushback Over Leaked Safeguards

    30 Jul 2014 | 5:36 pm
    WASHINGTON -– The World Bank has been working to update safeguards intended to ensure that development projects it backs don’t hurt people or the environment. But environmental and civil activists are pushing back on a draft of proposed safeguards leaked last week, arguing they would weaken the standards and fail to adequately address climate concerns. Nezir Sinani, climate change coordinator at the Bank Information Center, a group that monitors the World Bank, criticized the climate portion of the draft. "There is sporadic mention of climate change, but nowhere lays out what governments…
  • This Greedy Kitty Knows Exactly How To Charm His Owner Into Giving Him More Kisses

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:35 pm
    Every pet owner knows that look. You know, the one that your furry friend gives you when the lil' guy wants something? Well, in this video uploaded to YouTube, a cunning kitty proves he's got that look down, and is using it to collect more kisses (insert evil laugh here). When the cat cocks his head with a twinkle in his eye, his owner turns to mush and gives in to his demand for another kiss. And when that doesn't work, the cat pats his owner's face, as if to say, "Whoa, there. You forgot something!" This cat's cute smooch-summoning tactics are so effective, you'll probably be blowing kisses…
  • Homeless Man Tearfully Watches As Police Destroy His Shelter

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:27 pm
    Sam had just one request for police about to destroy the makeshift shelter in the woods he'd built: "Can I watch?" The video above, showing a visibly shaken Sam become teary-eyed as his home of several years crumbles to the ground, is promoting a new documentary shedding light at the current realities of homelessness in America. "Destiny's Bridge," a project sponsored by nonprofit Fractured Atlas and produced by filmmaker Jack Ballo, focuses on homeless minister Steve Brigham, who lives in the woods of New Jersey among dozens of others in similar circumstances.

  • Clean Power Plan Leads to Healthy Kids

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:32 pm
    It shouldn't be dangerous to breathe. But, for thousands of kids in Atlanta, just going outside is like a fullback going into a game without a helmet - unhealthy and unsafe. Millions of American kids live in places where the air is so polluted that its not always safe to practice sports, go for a hike, or visit the local park. In fact, Atlanta has one of the worst asthma rates in the country, meaning the dreams of too many kids are at risk of getting sidelined by chronic health problems. As a kid from South Carolina who grew up to become a professional football player in Atlanta, my career…

Join Earth Dr Reese Halter from Los Angeles for another segment of SOS as tells of the 'War Against Nature' and the heinous ecocide in the North Atlantic.

    30 Jul 2014 | 1:21 pm
    Is humanity on a sustainable path? Are we on the verge of being unsustainable? And, if so, how will we know when we get there? Sorry. We are already there. We are drawing down global resources, both renewable and nonrenewable, at an alarming rate. Nature cannot keep up with us. Water tables are falling. Lakes and rivers in many areas are shrinking. Tropical forests in Southeast Asia and other parts of the world are disappearing. All around the world top soil is eroding. Arable land is being rendered infertile. Deserts are expanding. Ocean fisheries are being depleted. Everywhere we are…

    Surfers may know the shores of Australia or Hawaii as some of the prime surfing spots around the world. But swells in the Arctic Ocean? That's a new one. While some daring surfers have ventured out to the icy waters in Iceland and Norway for some Arctic surfing, they may want to pay attention to Alaska's Beaufort Sea, where researchers have recorded sizable swells. In a recent study, oceanographers describe how they detected "house-sized waves" in the Arctic Ocean for the first time. The research team, from the University of Washington and the Naval Research Laboratory, used sensors anchored…

    30 Jul 2014 | 6:59 pm
    My apartment had a mouse infestation when my HuffPost internship began in 2010. Today is my last day with the company, and I find myself thinking about one mouse from that time in particular.  On one of my first days in the old intern office, I was filing a story on Michael Vick's pit bulls when my bag shuffled an inch across the desk. Then it shuffled again. I began shrieking and flapping my hands around.  Among 15-odd strangers, one hauled open a jammed window as another rifled through my backpack's contents of sweaty gym clothes, sandwich wrappers and chewed-up pens. The other…
  • I Am Not Adorable, So Please Stop Calling Me That

    30 Jul 2014 | 5:23 pm
    There's lots of discussion these days about what to call people as they grow older. Nobody likes "elderly"; "senior" and "senior citizen" are a scant improvement over "elderly"; and we can argue til the cows come home exactly what "older person" means. I'm fine with using my actual age as a descriptor. I'm a "64-year-old." Period. What I'm not fine with is being called "adorable." Spending a good deal of my day online, I see people my age and older being called "adorable" all the time. "Adorable" is a word that is best applied to babies and puppies. To my ear, it's a diminishment of what I've…
  • Lulu, Plus-Size Pole Dancer, Has An Inspirational Body Love Message To Share

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:52 pm
    Pole dancing is an incredibly difficult sport -- and one woman is out to prove that size doesn't matter when it comes to skill. LuAyne Brown, who goes by the stage name Lulu, is a lifelong cheerleader and dancer who gravitated towards the sport in 2006. "I'd always wanted to try it, but I was worried about what people would think," she told Closer magazine in 2011. "But when I turned up for my first class and everyone was in stilettos and tiny shorts, regardless their different sizes, I felt a lot better." She began competing in 2008, undeterred by disparaging comments on her YouTube page.

  • Poll results show Rauner's lead over Quinn growing

    30 Jul 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner holds a 14-point lead over Democratic incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn in a new Reboot Illinois/We Ask America poll. The new poll was conducted July 28, after the candidates shared their proposed plans to balance the state's budget. More voters said they thought Rauner's tax plan (which includes expanding the sales tax to cover many services while allowing the state's income tax to fall to 2011 levels) would be more effective by a margin of 11 points. Compared to the first Reboot Illinois poll in June, the new poll shows a growing gap between the…

Even so, it's often hard to check the ol' ego at the door for the greater good of the partnership. But take two people from the dance world that have known each other for 16 years, give them a shared vision and complementary skill sets... and wonderful things can happen. It's immediately obvious that there's a deep rapport between Lucy Vurusic-Riner and Michael Estanich, and it is in every sense the foundation that their dance…

My family tradition tells the story of my ancestors' expulsion -- along with hundreds of thousands of other Jews -- from the Iberian Peninsula by royal Spanish decree in 1492 following an era of great success and coexistence there. Jews (and many Muslims) were given three options: convert to Christianity, leave their country and belongings, or die without trial. My family changed our name to "Maron" as a reminder that we were "marranos," the term for Jews who were forced to publicly join the church and…

At best, the struggle is essentially a Hatfield-McCoy feud. It just goes round and round and round. No one at this point remembers why it began, but no one is prepared to end it, either, so the two sides, basically indistinguishable from one another, just keep at it. At worst, it's a tale of the strong, Israel, against the weak, Hamas. Thus, the relentless focus has become the damage inflicted on poor, defenseless Gaza, as well as…

To explain both my horrified reaction to the Gaza casualties and support for Israel's operation to destroy the tunnels, I am looking for even imperfect references that might resonate with Brazilian readers. But at the outset I'll state some points that seem lost in the tendentious noise: Hamas is not a legitimate representative of the Palestinian people; just ask the…

Negotiations began in 2010, but their progress has been tightly sealed off from the media, prompting calls for greater transparency and an end to secret dealings behind closed doors. The Wikileaks saga has been keeping the media busy by bringing a broad range of issues to the surface. However, it seems that the draft text of the TPP leaked by the group has largely slipped through…

Farmer Christoph Huttner, who owns the wheat field near Weilheim, couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday but told the dpa news agency Tuesday he didn't create the circle himself.

    WASHINGTON -- As lawmakers on Capitol Hill scrambled to approve increased military funding for Israel this week, a little-noted federal agency across town prepared to spend as much as $84 million to compensate an American company for losses sustained in the Israeli bombardment of a Gaza power plant. The money would come from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, which helps U.S. companies expand business abroad in ways that, to quote OPIC's website, "help solve critical development challenges and in doing so, [it] advances U.S. foreign policy." The agency does all this in part by…

    We're guessing you haven't exactly reached Ryan Gosling levels when it comes to charming the opposite sex. But that's OK, because on Wednesday, Redditor SteepLikeAMountain shared this pro tip. The post quickly shot to the front page of Reddit and it's not hard to see why -- it's either the best pickup line we've ever heard or the absolute worst: 1. Acquire several dozen limes. 2. Go up to them and then drop all the limes. 3. Start picking them up, but keep dropping them. The clumsier you look the better. 4. Keep doing this until you have their attention (this could take up to thirty minutes).

Well, in this video uploaded to YouTube, a cunning kitty proves he's got that look down, and is using it to collect more kisses (insert evil laugh here). When the cat cocks his head with a twinkle in his eye, his owner turns to mush and gives in to his demand for another kiss. And when that doesn't work, the cat pats his owner's face, as if to say, "Whoa, there. You forgot something!" This cat's cute smooch-summoning tactics are so effective, you'll probably be blowing kisses…

    A woman hears her phone buzz. She looks down, and sees that she has a new text -- from a dude! She opens the message,and it's a grainy photo of said man's penis, better known as a "dick pic." So, what's her initial reaction? Comedian Janet Silverman is here to enlighten us. Silverman had never received or seen a dick pic, so her friends put together an 89-picture slideshow of them, and Silverman filmed her reactions. A sampling of her thoughts: "I'm not a size queen or anything... but this one's very short." "The first thing I thought right now was: gerbil." "This reminds me of a scary…

    Explaining "what you do" to your parents is not exactly easy when you work in social media. I know, I know -- Facebook is now considered "your mom's social media outlet," but even if she does have a profile (which mine does not), she still likely thinks all a social media manager does is play around on Facebook and Twitter all day. Being in the field myself, I know that's the furthest thing from the truth.

Why would I make snarky comments about a mosquito-borne virus that's sneaking into Florida from the Caribbean and freaking out health officials like it's the Bubonic plague? Normally I would say for money, but that's a bit of an understatement. Most bloggers are lower on the pay scale than a snake's belly.

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:12 pm
    When Facebook first got started, 'liking' meant something. You didn't just hand out a thumbs up as if it was charity -- people had to earn it. A post needed to be endearing, clever or unique, or you had to have a crush on the person. It's different now. If you're part of the crowd aged 25 and under, or 45 and over -- the "next generation" of social media -- you're liking way too many posts. Everyone's whoring out hearts, literally, just giving them away, and forgetting that people need to be teased in this life. Who and what you like says a lot about you. It's a business, it's how advertisers…
  • If My Kids Ever Appeared on Shark Tank

    30 Jul 2014 | 1:23 pm
    My kids' current favorite show is Shark Tank, where budding entrepreneurs pitch ideas to a team of corporate tycoons who double as potential investors. While listening to concepts for, among other things, collapsible kayaks and colored fur spray for dogs, my daughters vigorously interrogate the television. "What are your yearly sales?" they ask, before Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban makes the same inquiry. Often they throw their hands up in disgust, exclaiming, "I'm out," together with venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary. "Think you could be on this show?" I asked one evening. "What, as a…

    30 Jul 2014 | 11:35 am
    Before you aptly point out that I "must have gotten some sun," please take a moment to consider what legitimate purpose that comment actually serves. Yes, my ordinarily fair skin is currently the color of crustacean commonly consumed with butter, but what are you really getting at? Do you think I'm somehow unaware of the fact my skin is on fire, my bra straps feel like they're made of barbed wire, and in a few days I'm going to be molting? I'm more than just a lump of reddened flesh, you know. There's a story behind my scarlet epidermis that would put good ol' Nate Hawthorne to shame. It's a…

  • The Worst -- Or Possibly Best? -- Pickup Technique Of All Time

    30 Jul 2014 | 5:24 pm
    We're guessing you haven't exactly reached Ryan Gosling levels when it comes to charming the opposite sex. But that's OK, because on Wednesday, Redditor SteepLikeAMountain shared this pro tip. The post quickly shot to the front page of Reddit and it's not hard to see why -- it's either the best pickup line we've ever heard or the absolute worst: 1. Acquire several dozen limes. 2. Go up to them and then drop all the limes. 3. Start picking them up, but keep dropping them. The clumsier you look the better. 4. Keep doing this until you have their attention (this could take up to thirty minutes).

    Joe Mulvihill's wife Rachel asked him to only take serious pictures with his groomsmen at their wedding. So this is what he did: Credit: Lucas Anderson for Amelia Soper Photography The awesome photo was taken at the couple's July 19 nuptials in Normandy Park, Washington. The groom told HuffPost Weddings that Rachel is no stick in the mud and was totally cool with the guys' goofball moment. "She laughed and immediately told me to put it on Reddit for 'internet points.'" And so he did. Now can we all just take a moment to acknowledge the awesomeness of those denim cowboy briefs?

  • This Greedy Kitty Knows Exactly How To Charm His Owner Into Giving Him More Kisses

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:35 pm
    Every pet owner knows that look. You know, the one that your furry friend gives you when the lil' guy wants something? Well, in this video uploaded to YouTube, a cunning kitty proves he's got that look down, and is using it to collect more kisses (insert evil laugh here). When the cat cocks his head with a twinkle in his eye, his owner turns to mush and gives in to his demand for another kiss. And when that doesn't work, the cat pats his owner's face, as if to say, "Whoa, there. You forgot something!" This cat's cute smooch-summoning tactics are so effective, you'll probably be blowing kisses…
  • 89 Thoughts That Run Through A Woman's Head When She Looks At Dick Pics

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:16 pm
    A woman hears her phone buzz. She looks down, and sees that she has a new text -- from a dude! She opens the message,and it's a grainy photo of said man's penis, better known as a "dick pic." So, what's her initial reaction? Comedian Janet Silverman is here to enlighten us. Silverman had never received or seen a dick pic, so her friends put together an 89-picture slideshow of them, and Silverman filmed her reactions. A sampling of her thoughts: "I'm not a size queen or anything... but this one's very short." "The first thing I thought right now was: gerbil." "This reminds me of a scary…

    15 Jul 2014 | 4:03 am
    As someone who's volunteered in animal rescue for over 10 years -- and has been a foster and adoptive parent to lots of dogs over the years -- I feel like I'm constantly reminded of how dogs bring alive the Third Metric values of well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving. They bring us joy. They keep us in the present moment. They make us laugh. They touch our hearts in the most unique way. Those of us who have canine members in our family experience an abundance of the unique ways that dogs have an impact on our daily lives. At a dog park, a fundraiser, an animal shelter or in line buying dog…
  • Reduce Stress and Really Thrive by Bringing Mindfulness to This

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    13 Jun 2014 | 5:33 am
    "A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit." -- Proverbs 15:4 It is encouraging to see the practice of mindfulness penetrating the culture. It is a graceful antidote to the unconscious, knee-jerk reaction way of living. Our over-stimulated society has drawn us away from our inner life, and the principles of mindfulness are helping us to forge a way back. Mindfulness is the experience of being fully present, bringing your attention to the present moment. When I bring up the subject of mindfulness to my patients, I find that many of them associate the concept…
  • Apparently, You Can Teach an (17-Year) Old Dog New Tricks

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    17 Jan 2014 | 5:42 am
    One of the most common questions I receive from people who know that I volunteer at my local animal shelter is, "Don't you just want to take them all home?" Reasonable question. The answer is: I want to do as much as I can to help them get adopted, and we have a crew of rescues at home, so I just try to stay focused on helping the animals get adopted and rescued. In over a decade of volunteering, I've never taken a dog home that I met during my volunteer shift. Until one day... I showed up at the shelter on a Sunday afternoon, and one of the most dedicated volunteers ever was holding a little…

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    27 Aug 2013 | 7:35 am
    If you ask an American woman to list her concerns about disease, breast cancer will almost invariably rank high. Breast cancer awareness in this country is an institution, serving as a banner for the largest series of 5K runs in the world (Race for the Cure) and claiming the month of October for fundraising against the disease across the country. During that month every year, pink ribbons adorn the lapels of politicians and are emblazoned on celebrity T-shirts, and even corporations not exactly associated with health such as Kentucky Fried Chicken line up to sponsor the cause. Many people…

    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.

    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.

    I know my opinion is not going to be popular, but here goes -- Sean and Elizabeth Canning are the adults and the parents in this relationship. They need to work harder than an 18-year-old to mend their family fences. Rachel Canning has been called a "spoiled brat" who's suffering from "affluenza" because she is suing her estranged parents for high school and college tuition and support. I agree that she may feel "entitled," but I also think it's ridiculous that her parents have allowed her to live at a friend's home for over four months without making serious efforts to repair their…

    It's becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of the far-right's bellicosity in the face of refugee children entering the United States. Not a day goes by without Sean Hannity, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Bill O'Reilly or various screeching mobs composed of townspeople from The Simpsons brandishing torches, pitchforks and AR-15s in reaction to the over-hyped immigration issue. Speaking of Gohmert, this week he suggested that President Obama is allowing women to be raped by "illegal aliens": And they've committed at least 7,695 sexual assaults. You want to talk…

    The National Rifle Association (NRA) has been responsible for countless nonsensical, totally illogical and sadistically irrational pro-gun slogans. It's kind of what the NRA does. Its executive vice president and chief crackpot, Wayne LaPierre is a never-ending geyser of these easy-to-repeat yet easily debunkable slogans. So it came as no surprise when the NRA released a brand new YouTube video that literally makes no sense whatsoever -- on any level. In fact, it's so off-the-rails that it's difficult to imagine even the most loyal NRA automatons buying into what it says. Here's the video…

    Last week, we brought you the story of the latest unprecedented congressional Republican weapon against the White House: the frivolous lawsuit. Specifically, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is considering legal action to overturn the president's executive orders (EOs) in spite of the fact that every president since George Washington has used executive orders to enact policies and implement congressional legislation, among other things. Since then, there have been a lot of tweets, memes and online discussions about how President Obama has issued considerably fewer EOs than nearly every…

    On Monday, the Houston chapter of Open Carry Texas had originally planned an armed march into the Fifth Ward, a predominantly African-American community. The group canceled the event because, they say, one of the members was committed to a previously scheduled event elsewhere. Canceling the march was probably fortuitous because what could possibly have gone wrong? A gaggle of white, paleoconservative rednecks with military-style rifles strapped to their chests marching through an African-American neighborhood is never a recipe for harrowing consequences. But seriously, while they're not in…

Frankly, we hadn't heard of her until this past weekend when she delivered a rant about President Obama and the fiasco in Iraq.

  • Israel and Hamas Are Both Winning and Both Losing in Gaza

    Lincoln Mitchell
    30 Jul 2014 | 2:42 pm
    The war in Gaza is characterized by two sides that, for reasons of domestic and external politics, define victory very differently. Israel employs a reasonably conventional military notion of victory, measuring their success in by their ability to keep their own people safe and destroy Hamas' ability to make war on them. Hamas, for its, part defines victory largely by driving up hatred for Israel both inside and outside of Gaza. These two visions are not only different, but exist on largely different planes, making it possible for both sides to simultaneously view themselves as winning this…

    As the baseball trading deadline approaches, one of the most intriguing players who has been connected to trade rumors is Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester. Lester is a top flight starting pitcher who was one of the mainstays of the Red Sox rotation during their 2013 World Series winning season. Lester was even more impressive in the World Series itself where he won two games while giving up only one run in just over fifteen innings. Lester was a strong candidate for the World Series MVP last year, in the other than David Ortiz bracket, of course. Lester is also a free agent after this year…

    As the war in Gaza continues, one of the interesting, important, but clearly secondary stories has been the efforts by both Israel and its opponents to influence public opinion through social and conventional media. Notably, by far the most important public with which both sides are concerns is the American public. The U.S. is one of the few countries where the public still has positive feelings for Israel. That support, however, is not as strong as it was even a few years ago. Despite the emphasis on social media with formal and informal volunteers from both sides Tweeting, posting links on…

    After a charmed first half of the season, the San Francisco Giants stumbled badly from roughly June 9 until the All Star Break. They have played reasonably well since the All Star Break, winning three of four and are now back in first place in the NL West. However, the last few days have also brought some bad news to the Giants as star pitcher Matt Cain and first baseman Brandon Belt were placed on the disabled list. To replace Belt on the roster, the Giants brought up Adam Duvall a journeyman minor leaguer who made his big league debut only a few weeks ago at age 25, but was quickly sent…

    In November of 2016, voters in California will vote on whether or not to divide the state into six different states. If the Six Californias, as this proposal is being called, initiative passes, nothing will happen right away. Creating new states requires action by Congress and cannot simply be done by the people of a given state.The initiative is the brainchild of Tim Draper, a wealthy California venture capitalist. Without Draper's money, the proposal would not have received enough signatures to make it onto the ballot. Presumably, Draper will continue to support the initiative during the…

    Joseph A. Palermo

    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…

    It makes perfect sense that out of the horrors of the war in Iraq a resistance army would arise that is far more pernicious, ruthless, and fanatical than the original enemy the US sought to defeat. The level of sectarian violence Iraq has experienced from 2003 to the present is a direct consequence of the US invasion, which long ago showed the world how wrongheaded the decision to invade was. We've recently heard prattling in the mainstream media about how successful the 2007 "surge" had been in Iraq and how President Barack Obama somehow "failed" because he didn't follow the neocon…

    I thought Karl Rove's 2004 Swift Boating of John Kerry's Vietnam service record in the US Navy was pretty disgusting, but the recent smears against President Barack Obama for winning Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release have descended to a new low. Instead of rejoicing in the homecoming of an American soldier who spent five years as a captive of the Taliban, the Republican response has been one of contempt and condemnation. There'll be no welcome home festivities in Hailey, Idaho for the 28-year-old Bergdahl, not with the FBI confirming that his family has been receiving threats. Instead, he has…

    With the Federal Communications Commission's proposed rule changes that could sound the death knell for Net Neutrality, context matters. And the context within which citizens must operate who want to defend a free and open Internet is one of relentless corporate lobbying and political power. For years now the corporate Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have been pushing for a tiered system of Internet delivery. They want the FCC to allow them to construct "fast lanes" and "slow lanes" on the Internet. Such a system would enable ISP companies to create false scarcity, roadblocks, and…

    On November 5, 2008, the day after the country elected its first African-American president, an op-ed appeared in the Los Angeles Times written by the conservative black academic Shelby Steele titled "Obama's Post-Racial Promise." In it Steele asks: "Doesn't a black in the White House put the lie to both black inferiority and white racism? Doesn't it imply a 'post-racial' America?" Thus began a trope that has bounced around our political discourse ever since.

According to Politico, should the Republicans win back the Senate in 2014, they "are vowing to reinstate the five-day workweek." It's a supreme sacrifice that would leave the U.S. Senate with the same workweek as many normal human Americans -- at least the ones who haven't been cowed by their employers into giving up their weekends, which is a new thing that some lawmakers want to help facilitate. There are a lot of schools of thought on whether or not lawmakers should spend more time in Washington,…

    Why does prayer feel both right and normal to me and crazy, too? The best I can do is offer this analogy. In the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, people receive a vision of a mountain to which they're being called. They don't know what they're seeing, let alone why. They don't believe in callings per se. They just have to go there. In the same way, I just have to pray. And while I know that soon my grandchildren will be asking me tough questions about whether any of this spiritual mumbo-jumbo is real, I'm like a pregnant crack addict passing my addiction to my unborn child.

That book became the bestselling CRAZY FOR GOD: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back.

    As anyone who has been reading my HuffPost blogs knows I'm "of the left." So I understand the impulse to regard corporations as bad and giant companies as downright evil. Enter the Amazon takeover of the world and destruction of all that is right and holy in publishing. Only there is another side to all this that I -- as a mid-level author of more than a dozen books and several best-sellers -- would like to offer. I love Amazon and here's why. Many years ago when Laura Bush read a paragraph from one of my Washington Post op-eds on Meet the Press, the book my op-ed referenced (a work about my…

    Another blow. More innocents slaughtered. Another bloody act in a land scorched by perpetual division. And another reminder that even the most seemingly justified acts can threaten to overwhelm all in a holocaust of dumb, deadly hatred. And what do Jews do? One thing they shouldn't do is act like all those who would visit misery upon them, not behave like those of lesser character, of lesser intellect, of lesser sense, to not regress into however justifiably violent a response to the unimaginably awful fate suffered by innocent children at the hands of animals. Because an eye for an eye, even…
  • Easy to Be Ugly

    Steven Weber
    28 May 2014 | 2:30 pm
    The world, it seems, is ugly. One could argue that it's always been; one could also argue that never more than in modern history has that ugliness been given such free rein, spurred perhaps by a detachment from responsibility for one's fellow, by the sheer effort selflessness seems to require; spurred perhaps by a culture's dependence on the physical rather than the spiritual, by the twice election of a black president, the living embodiment of the scary dark nights which haunt the white tribal imagination. Yes, the good vs. evil dynamic has been at play since God first created The Big Bang…

    While watching TV coverage of Sochi last week, I heard one of the commentators wonder how an Olympic athlete who wasn't competing in any other sport besides ice hockey could ever derive satisfaction. Why, she asked incredulously, participate in something that had no real commercial potential? Her partner in the exchange didn't dispute her assertion or even pause before accepting it outright, which pretty much implied that playing any sport which didn't result in a related career was a wasted one. That shocked me. Certainly there's a market out there for professional lugers or people who…

    It just might be that when the history of the current era is writ, the most interesting aspect will focus on how this country reached a point where it simultaneously rose to fulfill its highest democratic potential while exposing its basest and most destructive tendencies. The election of a black man to the land's highest office, indeed to perhaps the most powerful position in the world, has hastened a kind of cultural mitosis, a cleaving of the body politic of the United States, forcing people to one side or the other. Inasmuch as the two elections of Obama are examples of how far the nation…

    Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen made waves in her Congressional testimony last week when she argued that social media and biotech stocks were over-valued. She also said that the price of junk bonds was out of line with historic experience. By making these assertions in a highly visible public forum, Yellen was using the power of the Fed's megaphone to stem the growth of incipient bubbles. This is an approach that some of us have advocated for close to twenty years. Read more: Financial Crisis, Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, Wall Street, Housing Bubble, Janet Yellen, Business News

Der 73-Jährige hat mehrere Bestseller geschrieben ("Wer weint schon um Abdul und Tanaya?", "Warum tötest Du, Zaid?"), hat den syrischen Diktator Bashar al-Assad während des Bürgerkrieges zu einem umstrittenen Interview getroffen und reist immer wieder in die Krisengebiete, um sich selbst ein Bild von der Lage zu machen.

  • Was würde passieren, wenn Argentinien pleite wäre?

    30 Jul 2014 | 1:03 pm
    Bis vor Kurzem konnte Argentinien seine Schulden noch begleichen. Doch jetzt sind die Gelder eingefroren. Wegen eines Streits um ausstehende Zahlungen bei US-Hegdefonds (siehe Hintergrund-Box), der seit Jahren tobt, sich aber dramatisch zuspitzte. So dramatisch, dass Argentinien am Rande des Abgrunds steht. Um Mitternacht US-Ostküstenzeit, also um 6 Uhr am Donnerstagmorgen nach MESZ, läuft die Frist ab, um eine Lösung in diesem Krimi zu finden. Was würde Argentinien passieren, wenn das Land keine Lösung findet? Rating-Agenturen würden Argentinien wohl für zahlungsunfähig erklären.

    As Wikileaks documents showed back in 2010, the U.S. has vamped up its assistance on anti-terrorism for the World Cup because it saw a right risk of danger -- and also a great business opportunity for its companies. However, opaqueness surrounds this support; the total investment of the U.S. embassy in the training was only revealed now -- U.S.$ 2,2 million over the past 2 years. The deal was never publicized in full, and many questions remain. The Ministry of Justice is yet to explain for instance, how many courses were funded by the U.S., and who were the trainers -- U.S. military?

    30 Jul 2014 | 11:36 am
    INTERNATIONAL - Au moins 108 Palestiniens ont été tués mercredi 30 juillet dans l'offensive israélienne dans la bande de Gaza, portant le bilan de 23 jours de conflit à 1359 morts et plus de 7300 blessés, selon les secours locaux.

  • Virus Ebola, portrait d'un tueur

    30 Jul 2014 | 8:52 am
    SANTÉ - L'Ebola, en grande partie responsable de l'épidémie de fièvre hémorragique qui sévit depuis janvier avec au moins 660 morts en Afrique de l'Ouest, figure parmi les plus contagieux et mortels chez l'homme, qu'il peut tuer en quelques jours. Ce virus tueur, qui provoque des "fièvres hémorragiques", tire son nom d'une rivière du nord de l'actuelle République démocratique du Congo (ex-Zaïre), où il a été repéré en 1976. Son taux de mortalité peut aller de 25 à 90% et il n'existe pas de vaccin homologué. Lire aussi : Ebola s'étend en Afrique, l'inquiétude gagne le…
  • VIDÉO. Ce député moldave demande publiquement pardon à sa femme car il n'a pas pu fêter leurs 10 ans de mariage

    INSOLITE - Voilà un mari visiblement meurtri. Comme l'a repéré BFM-TV, le député moldave Veaceslav Ionita s'est excusé publiquement lundi 28 juillet. La cause de ce mea culpa: l'homme politique avait prévu d'offrir un week-end en amoureux à son épouse pour fêter leurs dix ans de mariage. Malheureusement pour le couple, les travaux parlementaires ont retenu le mari toute la fin de semaine. Très ému, celui-ci a donc souhaité s'excuser auprès de sa femme, devant les médias, comme ont peut le voir dans la vidéo en haut de l'article. Triturant nerveusement un stylo, silencieux…

La jeune actrice Aimee Richarson qui interprétait Myrcella Baratheon -la fille de la Reine Cersei Lannister- dans huit épisodes de la saison deux, s'est vue évincer de la série alors que son personnage revient justement dans la saison cinq. Attention, cet article contient des SPOILERS sur la saison quatre de "Game Of Thrones".

    Liberals should also be wary since unions will quickly throw their money at another party if you dare step out of line, as happened in the 2012 Ontario by-election in Kitchener-Waterloo when unions spent over $1.5 million in ads in support of the NDP campaign following a government showdown with teachers' unions. That is perhaps the most disturbing element of this big money politics: it is hard to see it as anything other than buying influence.

    The latest Commonwealth Study ranked Canada's health care system a dismal second to last in a list of eleven major industrialized countries. It is true that Canada's health system is fragmented and uncoordinated. Too often people fall through the cracks and we are miserable at managing patients with multiple illnesses. And too often our system feels unresponsive to the concerns of patients and their families.

What kind of misandry is this? Sure the five dollar bill boasts our old pal Wilfred Laurier, and the ten dollar bill shows everyone's favourite confederation-loving racist Sir John A. Macdonald, and the fifty dollar bill has séance-holder and dog enthusiast William Lyon Mackenzie King and yeah, fine, the hundred dollar bill is devoted to Nova Scotia's good ole boy Sir Robert Borden, but I mean, come on.

    Germany has the most unequal distribution of wealth in the eurozone. In this sense, Germany faces the same challenge as China: a high-export and saving economy which needs to rebalance through policies that create a greater flow of wealth to households, thus spurring greater consumption.
