    This week brought a surprise: In a time of rampant division, we saw an entire people -- or at least 55 percent of them -- choose unity instead. On Thursday, 3.6 million Scots went to the polls and chose not to change Great Britain to Somewhat Less Great Britain by voting against severing their 307-year union. Now, after the celebratory champagne and haggis (or whatever one drinks with haggis), comes the hard work of ironing out a new division of power. Less surprising was the continued upheaval in the NFL, as yet another player was arrested for domestic violence. On Friday, Commissioner Roger…

  • Vance McAllister Feels #Blessed To Have A Devoted Wife After Kissing Scandal

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:30 am
    A married Republican congressman who was caught kissing one of his staffers has brought out his wife to speak positively of his character in a new television ad, titled "Blessed," that was released Monday. Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.), who has pursued a rather circuitous bid for re-election, is defending his seat against several challengers, including Zach Dasher, a Club for Growth-backed candidate with "Duck Dynasty" family ties. McAllister, who presents himself as a social conservative, was criticized as a hypocrite after a video leaked in April showing him kissing his district scheduler.

    Wenn wir uns die westliche Unternehmenskultur heute anschauen, finden wir zwei sehr verschiedene und miteinander konkurrierende Welten vor. In der einen Welt sehen wir eine klare Manifestation des Burnout-Syndroms: eine Geschäftskultur, die sich einzig und allein auf Quartalsberichte, die Maximierung kurzfristiger Gewinne und das Übertreffen von Wachstumsvoraussagen konzentriert. In der anderen Welt sehen wir eine wachsende Anerkennung der Auswirkungen von Stress am Arbeitsplatz auf die Angestellten - und auf die Bilanz des Unternehmens.

    Am Morgen des 6. April 2007 fand ich mich in einer Blutlache auf dem Fußboden meines Arbeitszimmers wieder. Im Fallen war ich mit dem Kopf gegen die Schreibtischkante geschlagen, hatte mich am Auge verletzt und mir das Jochbein gebrochen. Mein Kollaps war das Ergebnis von Erschöpfung und Schlafmangel. Nach ihm begann eine Odyssee von einem Arzt zum nächsten, vom MRT zum CT und Echokardiogramm, um sicherzustellen, dass hinter der Erschöpfung nicht doch ein organisches Problem steckte. Es gab keins. Doch schnell bemerkte ich, dass die Wartezimmer von Arztpraxen ein guter…

  • Israeli Gay Nightlife Promoter Sparks Controversy With ISIS 'Satire' Images That Recall Beheadings

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:26 am
    Israeli nightlife promoters have sparked international controversy after using images that appear to mock the militant Islamic State to publicize a gay-themed event last week. The Washington Post and Haaertz are among the many media outlets reporting that the group, called Drek, posted two questionable images on its Facebook page. In one, a model wearing only a Speedo holds a black flag similar to the Islamic State's banner: Post by ‎דרעק‎. The second image, which has been removed from the group's Facebook page, recalls ISIS footage which showed the executions of U.S. journalists…

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- In a first for the prestigious education award, districts in Florida and Georgia will split the $1 million Broad Prize - the largest education award given to U.S. public schools. On Monday, the Gwinnett County Public Schools in metro Atlanta and the Orange County Public Schools in Orlando each were promised $500,000 in college scholarships for their high school seniors. The announcement marked the first time in its 12-year history that the Broad Prize for Urban Education has gone to two districts.

  • Guess Who's Leading on Paid Leave? (Hint: Not Us)

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:41 am
    Earlier this month, I was in Melbourne, Australia representing our government at a meeting of Labor Ministers of the world's 20 major economies. After sitting down with my G20 counterparts and learning more about their policies relating to work and workplaces, my main takeaway is that the United States is distressingly behind the curve on paid family leave. It's incomprehensible to me that we're the only industrialized nation without a national paid leave law of any kind. How can we say we're for family values when so many women in the United States have to jeopardize their livelihood to take…
  • Climate Rally Draws Tens of Thousands to the Streets

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:41 am
    One contingent of the multitudinous climate rallies that coalesced as a mass of more than 300,000 people on Sunday, September 21, stirred to life outside the TimeWarner Center, on Columbus Circle, which was symbolic on a number of levels. It is unclear how the site for this part of the demonstration, which hosted a multifaith gathering of believers, was decided. Near where a miniature Noah's Ark and a mosque stood was the colossal commercial behemoth housing "the shops of Columbus Circle," named after the man who according to our national mythos discovered America, at a time when Mannahatta…
  • How Do Alibaba's IPO and China's New Nationalism Fit Together?

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:05 am
    This article also appears in the South China Morning Post China's e-commerce leader, Alibaba, celebrated its landmark U.S. $21.8 billion listing in New York on Friday -- the largest IPO in American history -- on the same day that British pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was hit by a record fine of U.S. $500 million imposed by the central government in Beijing. The two stories -- one happy and the other unfortunate -- are perfect examples to showcase the rise of China on both the economic and political fronts on the world stage.

  • What Are College Bars Really Saying When They Offer Discounts Just For Women?

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:45 am
    Some University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill students are protesting the "patriarchal culture" within the party scene at their campus. On Sept. 16, students organized a silent protest of Deep End's “Country Night,” which offered a discounted admission rate for female patrons at the bar near UNC. UNC senior Trevor Dougherty, who organized the protest, told HuffPost Live the widespread industry practice of cheaper drinks for women fosters an “underlying culture of sexism.” “Men pay more, women pay less and in that way, women are commodified and objectified and this whole culture of…

Indeed there are perennial lessons that physicians, public officials and the press, can learn from the global pandemic that is estimated to have infected 500 million people and taken up to 100 million lives.

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:47 am
    Season 40 will be Kenan Thompson's last as a repertory player on "Saturday Night Live." The longtime cast member will leave the show at the end of this season, TMZ reports. According to TMZ, Thompson was going to leave after Season 39, but Lorne Michaels, the show's executive producer, convinced him to stay. Thompson has been a cast member on "SNL" since 2003, and broke the record for longest serving black cast member. Of the current cast, he's been on the show the longest. Thompson also highlighted the show's lack of diversity last year when he told TV Guide that he would no longer play…

  • Big Insurance Companies Won't Be Big Insurance Companies Much Longer. Here's Why

    22 Sep 2014 | 9:37 am
    As I wrote last week, one of the nation's biggest employers -- Boeing -- is pioneering a concept in providing health care benefits to its employees that eliminates insurance companies as middlemen. What Boeing is doing represents a seismic shift in health care financing and delivery that potentially will have more far-reaching effects than Obamacare, primarily because it is coming from the private sector, not the government. It is a shift that the big health insurers have been anticipating and preparing for since long before the Affordable Care Act was enacted. We tend to think that insurers…

Regardless of what one thinks about J Street's conduct during the war, the promulgation of this line is a threat to any future pragmatic effort to move U.S. policy on Israel-Palestine in a progressive direction in any future that we can see. No-one who was seriously engaged in a realistic contest for power in D.C. on this issue, or had any plans in any future that we can see to engage in a serious contest for power on this…

(Per TMZ, Thompson was going to leave after Season 39, but Lorne Michaels, the show's executive producer, convinced him to stay.) An "SNL" spokesperson, however, denied the TMZ claims, writing that the report was inaccurate "as the season hasn’t even started and cast decisions aren’t made until the end of the season."

"Fashion as an industry has changed so much since I started," she told HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani in an interview on Friday. "Just to be able to sell online at this time is a crazy thing. At this time, there has never been a better time to start a business or make clothes. It's virtually risk-free." The digital marketplace offers plenty of outlets for designers to sell their goods,…
  • Investing in the Future We Want

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    We stand today at the threshold of one of the most significant development challenges of the 21st century: How to feed and nourish 9 billion people by 2050 without destroying the environment, while climate change threatens to significantly diminish crop yields and roll back years of progress. This means farmers will have to produce as much food over the next 35 years as they have over the past 8,000, with fewer resources and greater constraints. The challenge is all the more daunting given that three-quarters of the world's poorest people depend almost completely on agriculture for their…
  • Who Gets Rich Harvesting Burger King and the American Economy?

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:29 am
    As fast-food workers across the country strike for decent pay, Burger King is still preparing to abandon the U.S. as its home country. How does a burger company get flipped like this and who gets rich when it happens? Burger King is a company whose products encourage obesity, heart disease and diabetes in its customers and pays its employees so little that they require food stamps and other government assistance just to be able to sustain themselves. Now Burger King is asking us to swallow something even unhealthier than their food and lower than their pay. They are asking us to let them off…
  • Whole Foods' High-Priced Reputation May Finally Be Catching Up With It

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:13 am
    For years, Whole Foods has shrugged off criticism that it should be renamed "Whole Paycheck" because it is so expensive. But its high-priced reputation might finally be starting to hurt it. The grocery chain's competitors are luring shoppers away with lower prices, threatening to unlock its long stranglehold on the market for organic food, according to a new note by analysts at Wolfe Research, a New York investment research firm. Recently, stores ranging from Kroger to Walmart to Sprouts have undercut Whole Foods by bulking up their own, lower-priced healthy offerings. In its latest quarter,…

  • Why You Need to Be Seen

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:38 am
    We are living in an increasingly fast-paced world. Personally and professionally, our schedules are filled to the max. In our offices, we are so consumed with working through the seemingly never-ending volume of work that we can forget to even acknowledge people walking by. Some intriguing research conducted by Dan Ariely and his colleagues (Emir Kamenica and Drazen Prelec) highlights how powerful and important a simple gesture of acknowledgement can be in terms of our level of engagement and perseverance. They orchestrated a study to examine our willingness to work on a task, depending on…

    This article also appears in the South China Morning Post China's e-commerce leader, Alibaba, celebrated its landmark U.S. $21.8 billion listing in New York on Friday -- the largest IPO in American history -- on the same day that British pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was hit by a record fine of U.S. $500 million imposed by the central government in Beijing. The two stories -- one happy and the other unfortunate -- are perfect examples to showcase the rise of China on both the economic and political fronts on the world stage.

  • 1 In 5 Workers Laid Off In Past 5 Years Still Unemployed, Survey Finds

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:38 am
    WASHINGTON -- Twenty-two percent of workers laid off in the past five years are still unemployed, according to a new survey. The John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University surveyed more than 1,100 workers, including nearly 400 who are unemployed. A slim majority of laid-off workers in the survey, or 54 percent, said they received unemployment insurance when they lost their jobs. However, 83 percent of those who received benefits said the compensation ran out before they found jobs. Congress dropped extended unemployment benefits at the end of last year, despite…

Charlo Greene, a reporter for Anchorage's KTVA, announced on air that she would be leaving her job at the TV station to focus on marijuana legalization in Alaska. “Everything you've heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska," she said.

Die-hard fans spend hours outside to be a part of the fanfare and become the first to get their hands on latest device. But a disturbing new video documents why so many are willing to wait in line: They're reselling the phones for cash. In a six-minute short film, filmmaker Casey Neistat highlights the black market for phones at New York City's Apple stores. Here's how the process works. With the aid of a Mandarin translator, Neistat interviewed elderly Chinese men and women who all said…

  • Outlander and the Female Gaze: Why Women Are Watching

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:03 am
    By now you've doubtless heard of Outlander, Starz's new entrant in the race for premium channel subscribers. The surprise hit, based on the epic fantasy romance novels by author Diana Gabaldon, isn't the first series to court a mostly straight female audience; True Blood, adapted from Charlain Harris's Southern Vampire Mysteries, banked on the appeal of love triangles and quadrangles to rope in viewers who were still hungry for the romance of Twilight, with undeniable success. But unlike True Blood, which tantalized with ever more outlandish sex scenes and airbrushed-to-perfection hardbodies,…
  • Kenan Thompson Reportedly Leaving 'SNL' After This Season

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:47 am
    Season 40 will be Kenan Thompson's last as a repertory player on "Saturday Night Live." The longtime cast member will leave the show at the end of this season, TMZ reports. According to TMZ, Thompson was going to leave after Season 39, but Lorne Michaels, the show's executive producer, convinced him to stay. Thompson has been a cast member on "SNL" since 2003, and broke the record for longest serving black cast member. Of the current cast, he's been on the show the longest. Thompson also highlighted the show's lack of diversity last year when he told TV Guide that he would no longer play…
  • Kim Kardashian Doesn't Deserve To Have Her Nude Photos Stolen More Than Anyone Else Does

    It is a truth universally acknowledged by the law that stealing nude photographs is a crime. However, according to some, when those naked pictures are of Kim Kardashian, she was asking for it. Over the weekend, another round of stolen photos were leaked (likely by the same people), this time targeting celebrities like Gabrielle Union, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo, and yes, Kim Kardashian. While a similar incident with Jennifer Lawrence's photographs was met largely with public outcry and sympathy, Kardashian has instead been subject to vitriol and victim-blaming.

    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,…
  • Outlander Episode 107 'The Wedding' Ties That Bind

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:39 am
    To catch up on previous Outlander episodes, go HERE. Episode 107 begins with a flashback to Claire's and Frank's wedding day. The spontaneity of his proposal on front of the office of the registrar and suggestion to get married right then, and her immediate decision to marry him, reveal the adventurous, risk-taking of Claire that we as viewers have come to know and love. Oddly enough, it mirrors the quickness of her agreement to marry Jamie in 1743, even though that wasn't a decision made out of love and desire. As she and Frank kiss to celebrate their decision, the scene changes to show…

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:22 am
    The first week of our freshman year, we discovered that we were both very big fans of the show Gilmore Girls. Our obsession sometimes reached questionable heights; for example, during our senior year, we would sneak upstairs to watch Gilmore Girls in someone else's apartment because our TV didn't work. The tenants of the above apartment (luckily) had no idea. But we wouldn't have cared if they did. That's where we were at in our lives -- breaking and entering to get our fix of Lorelai and Rory. But big news broke a few weeks ago, and shall forevermore prevent us from committing misdemeanors…

  • High Heels or Sensible Flats?

    19 Sep 2014 | 3:25 pm
    Women's footwear has its own history. "Heels" as a type has fallen in and out of popular fashion several times since WWII, most notably in the late 1990s when lower heels and even flats prevailed. Now we hear that "flats are back!" "Whereas heels were once integral to power dressing, flats now connote a liberation from that stereotype. As clothes have become more gender-neutral, the need to announce our femininity with a percussive soundtrack has vanished," writes Sadie Stein. Wow! This sounds progressive. Who could have predicted that flats and other "sensible shoes" would become symbols of…
  • The 5 Biggest Natural Hair Mistakes

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:49 pm
    Marcus Garvey once challenged black people to get the kinks out of our minds and not out of our hair. Never has this statement been more true than with the natural hair movement. Don't get me wrong. The modern natural hair movement is an amazing cross-cultural coalition of women with kinks and curls giving emotional support and hair advice to one another. It is great in many respects! But, the movement often fails to challenge the very paradigm that encouraged women to chemically process their hair and thereby prevented them from remaining natural, in the first place. In my view, the…

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:34 am
    A kitten has been caught on camera discovering her own tail. And it seems like she has no idea the moving "toy" is actually attached to her body, or that she has any control over it. Though we are confident this kitten will have total mastery over her tail one day, we hope that day doesn't come too soon -- her look of confusion is pretty adorable. [h/t Hello Giggles ]

  • Investing in the Future We Want

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:32 am
    We stand today at the threshold of one of the most significant development challenges of the 21st century: How to feed and nourish 9 billion people by 2050 without destroying the environment, while climate change threatens to significantly diminish crop yields and roll back years of progress. This means farmers will have to produce as much food over the next 35 years as they have over the past 8,000, with fewer resources and greater constraints. The challenge is all the more daunting given that three-quarters of the world's poorest people depend almost completely on agriculture for their…
  • The Ocean is Taking Away My Island

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:30 am
    I was born on the Carteret Islands, a group of six atolls just off the northeast coast of Bougainville Island in Papua New Guinea. They are home to over 2,700 people. Women are the traditional custodians of the land here. My grandmother passed our small island to my mother and she passed it on to me. But I will never be able to pass it to my daughter. Her heritage will be gone by then. I don't know much about science. What I know is that our shores are being eaten away. And nothing can stop the erosion. The hardest thing I have ever had to do was tell my family and friends that we needed to…

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:38 am
    September 20, 2014 Brussels Over three thousand environmental protestors marched on the capital of Europe at 10:30 Brussels time in the rain. They shouted slogans like, "This is what democracy looks like," in a show of solidarity with the New York Climate March later in the day, to send a message to leaders meeting at Tuesday's upcoming UN Climate Summit. Shouting, "What solution? Revolution," protestors started in front of Brussels' Palais de Justice and marched to Sablon to the beat of drums and brass band music. This is expected to be the biggest mobilization in history against climate…

  • Climate Summit: Creating Better and More Sustainable Cities

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:29 am
    This post was co-authored by Stephen M. Ross, Chairman and Founder, Related Companies; and Dr. Andrew Steer, President and CEO, World Resources Institute. The world's cities are growing by 1.4 million people every week. This remarkable demographic shift is creating densely populated communities that can be centers of innovation and economic opportunity. These cities can also be healthier for people, with cleaner air, and more resilient to climate change, but only if urban leaders with real influence have the vision to meet the challenges of the 21st century. New York, which will host the UN…

    One contingent of the multitudinous climate rallies that coalesced as a mass of more than 300,000 people on Sunday, September 21, stirred to life outside the TimeWarner Center, on Columbus Circle, which was symbolic on a number of levels. It is unclear how the site for this part of the demonstration, which hosted a multifaith gathering of believers, was decided. Near where a miniature Noah's Ark and a mosque stood was the colossal commercial behemoth housing "the shops of Columbus Circle," named after the man who according to our national mythos discovered America, at a time when Mannahatta…

    22 Sep 2014 | 9:33 am
    A day after the People's Climate March filled the streets of New York, a smaller group of protesters are engaging in non-violent, direct action against climate change. By conducting a sit-in on the steps of the New York Stock Exchange and blocking lower Broadway, organizers say they are confronting "the system that both causes and profits from the crisis that is threatening humanity." The protest does not have a permit, and some participants have pledged to risk arrest during the sit-in. Pictures from the group's assembly at Battery Park, the march to Wall Street and a blockade of Broadway…

    22 Sep 2014 | 9:17 am
    People spend thousands of dollars to have giant aquariums in their homes, but this guy actually gets paid to live in one. Meet Mark Dimzon, an aquarium biologist in the Live Exhibits Department at the Waikiki Aquarium in Honolulu, Hawaii. Dimzon lives in an 8-by-8-foot room next to the aquarium tanks and shares a wall with the monk seal exhibit. Ask him what it's like to live in an aquarium, and he might tell you a story about a night shortly after he moved in, when a loud roar jerked him awake on the top bunk, making him smack his head on the low ceiling. “The monk seals, Maka and Hoa,…

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:36 am
    We're now in week 3 of the NFL season, and who would have thought that Arizona -- with Drew Stanton making two starts -- would be undefeated, or that New Orleans and Green Bay would both be 1-2? Denver and Seattle provided the type of theater that many anticipated during the Super Bowl, giving the NFL precisely what it needed after a catastrophic couple of weeks. But there was plenty more to like during week 3 -- namely, the possible emergence of a new star at quarterback and the continual decline of an old one. Let's take a look at what we learned.

  • David Bowie Exhibition Details How An Artist Became An Icon

    There’s never been an artist quite like David Bowie, so it’s only fitting that a major exhibition chronicling the legend’s work is as diverse, expansive and exciting as his career over the past half century. “David Bowie Is,” opening Tuesday at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, contains more than 300 artifacts selected from an incredible 75,000 items Bowie had archived over the years. With a location-based headset, viewers can hear corresponding interviews, commentary and -- of course -- music as they move through the show. Along with the immersive audio, the exhibit packs…

    The White House released guidance on Friday pushing colleges and universities to conduct campus climate surveys to ensure ongoing compliance with Title IX, the gender equity law requiring schools to respond to and prevent sexual violence on campus. A best practices document presented last week with the Obama administration's "It's On Us" campaign encouraged colleges to conduct the surveys "in consultation with research personnel with expertise in survey design and data collection and analysis." Schools should analyze the data collected "to assess the rates and nature of sexual misconduct, any…
  • 7 Things I Learned About Love When My Dad Started Online Dating

    22 Sep 2014 | 6:46 am
    When most 20-somethings have dating questions, they call a single friend. A few might call their moms. But what if your "person" is a 60+ guy who also happens to be your dad? When I first moved to New York, I was that girl who checked in with Mom back at home most nights; she was hilarious and witty and always interested in my day. Plus, she had stage IV cancer, and therefore a lot of mother-daughter wisdom to impart. Those calls were among the most open of my life. With time against us, we were oddly free with our stories and advice. The phone calls stopped a few weeks after my 23rd…

    22 Sep 2014 | 6:37 am
    "Not afraid. Not ashamed. Not alone." That's the tagline of Not Alone, a website that offers women a platform to share their abortion experiences through video testimonies and essays. "We are here to let women who have had abortions know that they are part of a community," the website reads. "We are not ashamed of our experiences; we are not anonymous; and we are not alone." Not Alone was founded in 2013, after Beth Matusoff Merfish wrote a New York Times column about her mother's experience of getting an abortion in Texas in 1972, where the procedure was illegal. The outpouring of support…

  • Evanston Township Ceases to Exist

    19 Sep 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Until May 1, taxpayers in Evanston supported two governments -- the city of Evanston and Evanston Township. Evanston became a case study in government consolidation when voters decided in March that one Evanston government was enough and dissolved the township as a legal entity. The Better Government Association examined the causes and effects of the Evanston Township dissolution. Illinois has by far the most government taxing bodies per capita of any state in the nation, and township governments have become prime targets for reformers who say they duplicate services of county and municipal…

But in a different list that focused on low-income students, Illinois placed: 21 high schools in the Top 500. The magazine's "absolute" list of the 500 best public high schools in the country based on students' college readiness, graduation rates and how many students from those schools were college-bound. Illinois had 16 high schools on that list, and Northside College Preparatory High School was No. 3 among all high schools in the country. The second list focuses on schools with high percentages…

    Education is the orphan of any war. It is true in Iraq, where ISIL recently yanked any studies of literature, history, art, or music from public school curriculums in areas it controls. The academic crisis is even more dire in war-torn Syria, where universities have been occupied or destroyed and thousands of students and professors have been displaced, threatened, or killed. In Syria, escalating sectarian conflicts and the rapid advance of ISIL have driven Syrians who previously attended or taught in universities to seek shelter in refugee camps or wherever they can escape the violence.

  • UCB Helps The NFL Get Its House In Order With Official Response To Domestic Violence Scandal

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:43 am
    If, like nearly everyone, you've been appalled at the way the National Football League has handled the domestic violence scandal, then we have the scathing parody for you. Upright Citizens Brigade group Pocketwatch takes on the NFL's half-hearted attempts to address the issue by introducing its Executive Vice President of Communications & Public Affairs, who attempts to make the NFL policy very clear. For instance: "One strike and you're out, unless you're a franchise player," the VP explains. "In that case, it's three strikes and you're warned." Most importantly, no NFL player is allowed to…
  • Kitten's Mind Is Blown By The Existence Of Her Own Tail

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:34 am
    A kitten has been caught on camera discovering her own tail. And it seems like she has no idea the moving "toy" is actually attached to her body, or that she has any control over it. Though we are confident this kitten will have total mastery over her tail one day, we hope that day doesn't come too soon -- her look of confusion is pretty adorable. [h/t Hello Giggles ]

    We all spend a fair amount of time staring at our smartphone screens, but these frogs might have us beat. In the video above, a small army of frogs-turned-couch-potatoes watch enrapt as a video of worms plays on the screen of an iPhone placed in the dirt. A few of the frogs even take a leap at the phone, in hopes the worms could be dinner. It's clear these little amphibians are true smartphone fanboys. And hey, who could blame them?
  • 'Meet The McCardles' Hilariously Tackles 'Ex-Gay' Therapy

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:11 am
    'Ex-Gay' therapy is perhaps one of the biggest threats to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth in America -- and what better way to skewer how ridiculous it is than through some good ol' sketch comedy. This hilarious video, called "Meet The McCardles," written by and starring Abby Mcenany and Tim Paul of The Second City Network, tackles the life of two "ex-gays" trying to make a relationship work. As you could guess, the awkward dynamics will crack you up as the pair are interviewed about their life together post-ex-gay therapy and the cultural expectations they're trying to…

  • Who Rescued Whom? Shelter Dogs and Prison Inmates Give Each Other a New 'Leash' on Life

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    3 Sep 2014 | 1:40 pm
    August 9, 2014, was one of the most memorable days of my life. On that day I entered a maximum-security prison in Lancaster, Calif. to witness an extraordinary event connecting the lives of some of its inmates with a pack of rescued shelter dogs. Just a few months ago, five lucky dogs -- Shelby, Oreo, Rendell, Chuey and Eddie -- beat the odds and were pulled from a high-kill shelter in Los Angeles and entered this Level 4 prison for a chance at a better life. Earlier this year, Karma Rescue, a nonprofit that saves at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters across Southern California, partnered with…

    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
    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,…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    My friend and founder of The Daily Banter, Ben Cohen, wrote a post today titled, Here Are 7 Causes More Important Than Animal Rights. I absolutely agree that all of the issues he listed are important, but as an animal rights supporter I believe there's more than enough room for an entire menu of important issues, including the moral and humane treatment of animals and the protection of endangered species. Besides, it's not as if the U.S. government is somehow busily prioritizing animal rights at the expense of thwarting Ebola or the ISIS threat. Unfortunately, there's exactly nothing on the…

    A particularly intolerable meme continues to play out in the news media and online: Apparently U.S. history began on January 20, 2009, when Barack Obama was inaugurated. In case you were unaware, President Obama is evidently the first president to take vacations; he's the first president to play golf; he's the first president to be photographed without a suit or tie; and he's the first president to routinely use a teleprompter. If you believe any of that, then you're a moron who needs to crack a good book -- anything prior to the events of 2009 will do. There you'll find that not only are…

    For the last several weeks, the following photo of Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) and Sean Hannity has haunted me. During the current unhinged freakout surrounding immigration reform and, specifically, the Central American teens and children being held by the U.S. after having entered the country via the Mexican border, I can't help but to the think that the true threats to the U.S. aren't undocumented immigrants, be they adults or children, but rather these dinguses: With Gov Perry pic.twitter.com/oLaxlpwgp8 -- Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) July 10, 2014 When I see this photo, taken at the…

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…

    Some great ballplayers are remembered so much for the narrative that emerges around them that it overshadows anything they did on the field. Barry Bonds, for example, is more known for steroid controversy than for being the best player of his generation even before he was suspected of steroid use. Cal Ripken Jr. is now remembered more for breaking Lou Gehrig's consecutive game record than for being one of the greatest all around shortstops ever. Jackie Robinson is rightfully remembered more for being the first African American to play in the big leagues in the 20th century than for being an…
  • Is the Gender Gap Really About Race?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    15 Sep 2014 | 5:37 am
    As the 2014 midterm election approaches the gender gap -- or in less polite terms, the Republican war on women -- will likely draw a fair amount of media attention. It's a good Democratic talking point and fits in well with how many view politics in the U.S. today. The gender gap is generally viewed as being a product of both Republican policies and positions on issues such as reproductive rights and, in recent years, contraception, but also on economic questions as well. Women tend to be more concerned with issues like equality of income opportunity and believe that the government should…

    Major League Baseball released its schedule for 2015 this week. This is the kind of late-season event that is only of interest to the most intense fans. Not too many casual observers of the game are interested in knowing who their team will open against next April, whether their team will be home over July 4th or when their team will first meet their most hated rival in 2015. Nonetheless, the schedule is a reminder of both the length and complexity of the baseball season as it is now constructed.

    With the 2014 midterm elections less than two months away, it is difficult to open up a political website or listen to kibitzers on radio or cable television without hearing the latest horserace analysis. The question of whether the Republicans win control of the Senate or the Democrats hold on by a narrower margin than their current de facto 55-45 majority is important, but has less bearing on policy over the remaining two years of the Obama administration than might initially seem to be the case.

    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

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    So, that happened: Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's (R) career as a professional defendant has finished its first big story arc, with he and wife Maureen being convicted of 20 counts of corruption between them. The convictions were, perhaps, the result that close observers could have seen coming a mile away. What no one could have predicted at the beginning of this trial was the desperate and shameful gambit that McDonnell would embark on to clear his name -- effectively slut-shaming his wife and throwing what remained of a disintegrating marriage on the trash heap.

    Good news for people who hate lawmakers giving themselves three-day weekends on the regular! 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.

    What's needed to save the dwindling Church is a new paradigm: the embrace of atheism as the true religion and religion as the true atheism. Like box stores, the trend in churches is a few get huge while the rest slowly fade away. Progressive Christians and fundamentalists seem to agree when they look for causes of church attendance decline. They parse the details of how church is "done" related to both theology and method. To rock out or not? To affirm a literal gospel, or not? These questions are meaningless today. Both sides miss the point. Belief in Jesus is getting harder to "do" when…

Fact-based, enlightened atheists sometimes treat people like shit, and delusional fundamentalists sometimes treat people with compassion in spite of their harsh theology. Labels don't mean anything. Who cares about labels when someone is slapping you in the face? Who cares about labels when someone is saving you from drowning? Who someone is and what they do is all that matters. This is especially true because who we are…
  • Switchfoot's Album & Movie "Fading West" -- It's Grace in Action, Hope Crystallized, Damnation Canceled in Favor of Love...

    Frank Schaeffer
    12 Aug 2014 | 9:04 am
    I was just speaking at SoulFest (August 7-9). It's a music festival with evangelical roots. The band Switchfoot played. I'm several things but not evangelical. Could you imagine a more uncomfortable fit for me? I was expecting the worst. What I got was two gifts: One of pure art and the other pure grace. I also got a good and necessary humbling. FIRST GIFT: Switchfoot's new album that they played from at the festival -- "Fading West" -- is the best rock and roll I've heard in years. I haven't been so excited by a rock album since the day in 1967 when I was fifteen and I put…
  • We Spend Lifetimes Striving to Give Love, Create Beauty and Find Peace. Why?

    Frank Schaeffer
    8 Aug 2014 | 6:57 am
    It was a bright September day, clear, cool and perfect. My wife Genie, my grandchildren Lucy (age 5 and in the picture here taken that spring at Easter), Jack (3) and my daughter-in-law, Becky, were sprawled on the lawn. Lucy wandered over to the vegetable garden and picked cherry tomatoes. She ate them while dancing and watching her shadow flicker over the grass. Becky was starting to show with her third child. Love, contentment and sweetness were as palpable as the sunlight. The whole world pines for these sublime moments. We spend entire lifetimes striving to achieve fragments of peace.

    If you dropped by your local Disney Store during the 1989 holiday season looking to purchase some The Little Mermaid -themed merchandise, you'd have learned that what little had been ordered in advance had long since been sold out.

  • Neue Supermedizin soll bei HIV, Malaria und Grippe helfen

    Ist das der große Durchbruch im Kampf gegen den HI-Virus und gegen Malaria? Ein neues Medikament, entwickelt von amerikanischen Forschern, lässt hoffen: Der Impfstoff "VIP" ("vectored immunoprophylaxis"). Das berichtet die "Bild". Wo andere Impfstoffe Antikörper als körpereigene Immunreaktion auslösen, wirke "VIP" anders - es beschaffe dem Körper eine Anleitung, so dass sich die Antikörper selbst entwickeln. Dies schütze dann vor Infektionen. Im Kampf gegen HIV testeten die Forscher die Methode bei Mäusen - mit Erfolg. Selbst eine hundertfache Menge der HI-Viren infizierte die Mäuse…

Nach Informationen der "New York Times" betreibt das Weiße Haus derzeit "die Wiederbelebung" ihres Atomwaffenprogramms. Konkret heißt das: Obama hat die Modernisierung der bestehenden Nuklear-Waffen angeordnet. Darüber hinaus seien neue Waffen und Trägersysteme entwickelt sowie Anlagen aufgerüstet worden. Kostenpunkt: Eine Billion Dollar. Das Blatt berichtet zudem,…

Den Erwartungen zufolge werden bis 2050 drei Viertel aller Menschen in Städten leben.

    Steve H. Hanke
    12 Sep 2014 | 9:14 am
    Property's worst enemy is theft: theft makes property insecure. And unless property is secure, it can't be accumulated and it is wasted. The increasing incidence of heists on grain, Argentina's most valuable export, indicates that property rights are becoming more insecure and that the economy only has one way to go: down the tubes.

  • Neue Supermedizin soll bei HIV, Malaria und Grippe helfen

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:36 am
    Ist das der große Durchbruch im Kampf gegen den HI-Virus und gegen Malaria? Ein neues Medikament, entwickelt von amerikanischen Forschern, lässt hoffen: Der Impfstoff "VIP" ("vectored immunoprophylaxis"). Das berichtet die "Bild". Wo andere Impfstoffe Antikörper als körpereigene Immunreaktion auslösen, wirke "VIP" anders - es beschaffe dem Körper eine Anleitung, so dass sich die Antikörper selbst entwickeln. Dies schütze dann vor Infektionen. Im Kampf gegen HIV testeten die Forscher die Methode bei Mäusen - mit Erfolg. Selbst eine hundertfache Menge der HI-Viren infizierte die Mäuse…

Nach Informationen der "New York Times" betreibt das Weiße Haus derzeit "die Wiederbelebung" ihres Atomwaffenprogramms. Konkret heißt das: Obama hat die Modernisierung der bestehenden Nuklear-Waffen angeordnet. Darüber hinaus seien neue Waffen und Trägersysteme entwickelt sowie Anlagen aufgerüstet worden. Kostenpunkt: Eine Billion Dollar. Das Blatt berichtet zudem,…

Angelockt wurden sie von den beruflichen und persönlichen Möglichkeiten in Ballungszentren. Die Zahl der Städte wächst kontinuierlich, wie auch die Städte selbst: Sao Paulo, Tokio und Delhi haben mittlerweile jeweils mehr als 10 Millionen Einwohner. Den Erwartungen zufolge werden bis 2050 drei Viertel aller Menschen in Städten leben.

Wie wäre es stattdessen mit einem Umstyling, das eine normale Katze in einen hippen, grellgrünen Drachen verwandelt? Die Liebe zum Detail zeigt sich vor allem im zurecht gerupften Schwanz: Aus dem pelzigen Anhängsel wird ein stacheliger Reptilien-Schwanz. Wem Drachen zu angsteinflößend sind, wählt vielleicht lieber das Modell "Biene Maja“: Das Tier (in diesem Fall ein Hund) wird in…

    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?

    Kyle Knight
