    This was a week of both progress and regression. First, Sen. Ted Cruz kicked off his presidential campaign and wasted no time showing what kind of candidate he'll be by claiming that, in the wake of 9/11, he stopped listening to rock and switched to country music. Finding a way, 14 years later, to use 9/11 to pander and divide is as impressive as it is cynical. Next, Indiana Governor Mike Pence found an even older way to divide, signing into law a bill that would, essentially, legalize anti-gay discrimination. On the other side of the progress/regression ledger, the five-year anniversary of…

  • U.S. Appeals Judge's Hold On President Obama's Immigration Executive Action

    Politics - The Huffington Post
    31 Mar 2015 | 12:35 am
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department urged a federal appeals court Monday to reverse a hold a judge placed on President Barack Obama's immigration executive action. The 69-page brief was filed with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ahead of arguments scheduled for next month. Lawyers for the federal government are challenging a preliminary injunction issued in February by a federal judge in Brownsville, Texas. That decision placed on hold an executive action that could spare from deportation as many as 5 million people who are in the U.S. illegally. Justice Department lawyers say in…

    If anyone took the demise of Jim Crow and the election of a black president to mean that racism was dead, reports of the Justice Department on Ferguson and Philadelphia are sobering reminders that racism lives. Racism is proving as stubbornly hard to eradicate as the mythical Hydra which sprouted two new heads for every one that was cut off. Until, that is, Hercules found and severed the beast's immortal head. What is racism's immortal head? Why does racism persist? Color differences are not the cause of racism, rather they are excuses for debasing one group to another group's advantage.

    Patrick Fuller is a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School's esteemed Division of Sleep Medicine. In answer to my questions, he shared his insights on the importance of good sleep hygiene, how our brain's clock is connected to our overall well-being, and the problem with sleeping pills. What have you found in your research on the "neurocircuit basis" that supports sleep? In specific reference to our recent work on the brainstem slow-wave-sleep promoter "center," we showed that this region of the brain is first connected (synaptically) to an important wake-promoting region of the brainstem…
  • Introducing HuffPost Gratitude: Starting the Conversation on What We're Thankful For

    Arianna Huffington
    23 Mar 2015 | 9:07 pm
    Gratitude has always been one of the most powerful emotions for me. And it's no coincidence that "grace" and "gratitude" have the same Latin root, "gratus." Whenever we find ourselves in a stop-the-world-I-want-to-get-off mindset, we can remember that there is another way and open ourselves to grace. And it often starts with taking a moment to be grateful for this day, for being alive -- for anything. That's why I'm delighted to announce HuffPost Gratitude, a new section in partnership with American Greetings, featuring stories that illuminate gratitude's transformative power to bring a…

    This week began with all sorts of madness. College hoops' March Madness began on Thursday, and if I had a bracket it would no doubt already be busted. Weather madness broke out on Friday, the first day of spring, with a snowstorm on the East Coast. More serious meteorological madness descended as Senator Mitch McConnell launched a national effort to thwart new EPA regulations on coal-fired carbon emissions. This comes as new data showed that the rate of melting on East Antarctica's ice could lead to a world sea-level rise of at least 11 feet and that -- spring snowstorms aside -- 2014 was the…

  • Iraqi Militiamen Plan To Travel To Yemen To Battle U.S.-Backed Coalition

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:48 pm
    BAGHDAD -- Iran-backed Shiite militiamen in Iraq say they're ready to take up arms in a country most of them have never been to: Yemen. “We defeated ISIS in Syria, we’re defeating ISIS in Iraq, and we’ll defeat them in Yemen,” Abu Kumael, a volunteer fighter with the powerful Iran-supported Shiite militia known as the Peace Brigades, told The WorldPost Monday. “We’re not just talking. We’re physically ready to go and fight.” In Iraq, the militias are working on the same side as U.S. forces against the self-declared Islamic State. But once the militiamen get to Yemen, they'll…

  • The Rise of the Working Poor and the Non-Working Rich

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:04 pm
    Many believe that poor people deserve to be poor because they're lazy. As Speaker John Boehner has said, the poor have a notion that "I really don't have to work. I don't really want to do this. I think I'd rather just sit around."In reality, a large and growing share of the nation's poor work full time -- sometimes sixty or more hours a week -- yet still don't earn enough to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. It's also commonly believed, especially among Republicans, that the rich deserve their wealth because they work harder than others. In reality, a large and growing…
  • Don't Worry About the Robots, the Fed Might Take Your Job

    30 Mar 2015 | 6:02 pm
    It is rare that a week goes by when we don't hear a story warning us that robots are going to be taking our jobs. (For example, here , here, here .) This is bizarre, even as measured by a standard of economic reporting that allowed an $8 trillion housing bubble to grow largely unnoticed. The basic point is a simple one: there is no real evidence that robots are displacing workers on any substantial scale. The other part of the story that makes the robot discussion so annoying is that the Federal Reserve Board is actively debating policy that has the explicit purpose of taking away people's…
  • John Boehner Reveals His Absolute Ignorance About the Middle East

    30 Mar 2015 | 5:40 pm
    "It is better to be silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt." This quotation has been attributed to Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, and Socrates. It's too bad John Boehner doesn't seem to have taken it to heart. Here's what Boehner said on Sunday about the peace process in the Middle East. "Well, [Netanyahu] doesn't have a partner," Boehner said. "How do you have a two-state solution when you don't have a partner in that solution, when you don't have a partner for peace, when you've got a -- when the other state is vowing to wipe you off the face of the…
  • 6 Ways to Get Big Money Out of Politics

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:09 pm
    With the Oval Office at stake, the final price tag on next year's election will be sky high. It's predicted to total $5 billion. Politicians are talking to funders over constituents, listening to Big Money over voters. It's no wonder that for years the interests of regular Americans have been collecting dust in the halls of Washington. Our government should be representing the will of the people, not the will of a few billionaires. It's time we unite and wield the collective influence of people-power in order to unshackle our politicians from Big Money's venomous grip. This movement is about…

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) isn't letting the crisis in neighboring Indiana over a controversial religious freedom law go to waste. Emanuel, who faces re-election next week, has urged about a dozen Indiana businesses to move to Chicago as many have publicly expressed their concern that the law permits discrimination against LGBT employees. In a letter to the Indiana businesses, Emanuel said that the new law would lead to discrimination against LGBT employees in Indiana and harm the state's ability to attract top talent, Crain's Chicago Business reported.

    30 Mar 2015 | 10:32 am
    As one would expect, there has been a lot of press over last week's tragic crash of the Germanwings jetliner. Most media outlets are reporting the facts, but then there are some, like UK's The Sun, who choose to sensationalize and further the devastating effects of stigma with their front page headliner, "Crazed rookie pilot murdered 149, Madman in the Cockpit." No one at this point knows the reason that Andreas Lubitz intentionally crashed the plane into the French Alps killing himself and all 149 people on board. The speculation though, is that he had a mental illness, possibly depression…
  • Tobacco Marketing Increased to $9.6 Billion in 2012. Efforts to Fight Tobacco Use Must Also Intensify.

    30 Mar 2015 | 9:20 am
    In troubling news for our nation's kids and health, the Federal Trade Commission's latest reports on tobacco marketing show that cigarette marketing expenditures increased by nearly 10 percent, to $9.17 billion, in 2012. Adding $435.7 million in smokeless tobacco marketing, the tobacco companies spent a total of $9.6 billion to market cigarettes and smokeless tobacco -- that's $26 million each day and more than $1 million every hour. The cigarette marketing increase was driven by a sharp rise in spending on price discounts, which now account for 85 percent of all cigarette marketing. The…

  • Why Defining Personal Success is a Crucial First Step When Starting A New Business

    30 Mar 2015 | 9:00 pm
    At Nashville’s Belmont University, entrepreneurship majors are tasked with creating a promising business plan as their final project before graduation -- which is how Jason Duncan devised the blueprint for his now-successful small business. Along with his wife, Jenni, Duncan opened Café Evoke, a coffee bar and mobile coffee company in Edmond, Oklahoma. We've partnered with Intuit, makers of QuickBooks, to talk with small-business owners from a variety of different fields, bringing attention to entrepreneurs like Duncan and their emerging enterprises. During these conversations, they reveal…
  • The Rise of the Working Poor and the Non-Working Rich

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:04 pm
    Many believe that poor people deserve to be poor because they're lazy. As Speaker John Boehner has said, the poor have a notion that "I really don't have to work. I don't really want to do this. I think I'd rather just sit around."In reality, a large and growing share of the nation's poor work full time -- sometimes sixty or more hours a week -- yet still don't earn enough to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. It's also commonly believed, especially among Republicans, that the rich deserve their wealth because they work harder than others. In reality, a large and growing…
  • Rahm Emanuel Wants To Capitalize On Controversy In Neighboring Indiana

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:02 pm
    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) isn't letting the crisis in neighboring Indiana over a controversial religious freedom law go to waste. Emanuel, who faces re-election next week, has urged about a dozen Indiana businesses to move to Chicago as many have publicly expressed their concern that the law permits discrimination against LGBT employees. In a letter to the Indiana businesses, Emanuel said that the new law would lead to discrimination against LGBT employees in Indiana and harm the state's ability to attract top talent, Crain's Chicago Business reported. "But (Chicago's) great strength is…
  • Washington State To Boycott Indiana Over LGBT Discrimination Law

    30 Mar 2015 | 6:12 pm
    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) announced Monday that he would ban state-funded travel to Indiana, where a controversial new law could allow businesses to deny service to gay and lesbian individuals for religious reasons. “I find Indiana’s new law disturbing, particularly at a time when more and more states and people in America are embracing civil rights for everyone," Inslee said in a statement. "Washington will join other states and cities in opposing this law and I will impose an administration-wide ban on state funded travel to Indiana." In his statement, Inslee cited the case of a…

  • Don't Worry About the Robots, the Fed Might Take Your Job

    30 Mar 2015 | 6:02 pm
    It is rare that a week goes by when we don't hear a story warning us that robots are going to be taking our jobs. (For example, here , here, here .) This is bizarre, even as measured by a standard of economic reporting that allowed an $8 trillion housing bubble to grow largely unnoticed. The basic point is a simple one: there is no real evidence that robots are displacing workers on any substantial scale. The other part of the story that makes the robot discussion so annoying is that the Federal Reserve Board is actively debating policy that has the explicit purpose of taking away people's…
  • Why You Should Build a Prosocial Emotional Brand Identity

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:20 pm
    Whether deliberately designed or not, every organization has an identity, both tangibly -- that is, in the design and feel of the products and services it brings into the world -- and intangibly -- in the way people relate emotionally to the organization. This takes form in a number of ways; when we talk about branding, positioning, and differentiation, we're discussing organizational identity. Western and Eastern psychological traditions make a distinction between the individual ego and the social ego. The individual ego is the way we think about ourselves, how we relate to ourselves, the…
  • The Quiet Epidemic That's Ravaging U.S. Workers

    30 Mar 2015 | 2:54 pm
    Image Courtesy of https://www.takebackyourtime.org One of the most entertaining things I learned at World at Work's "Future of Work" forum in Nashville a couple weeks ago is that March 31 is now officially national Vacation Commitment Day. Citing an "epidemic of vacation deprivation," a new nonprofit advocacy group called Take Back Your Time has devised the special day to launch its new Vacation Commitment Initiative. The idea is to get Americans, notorious slackers when it comes to vacationing, to take some time off, already. And (more to the point) to get their employers to make it…

    30 Mar 2015 | 4:08 pm
    In a letter to Gov. Mike Pence (R) and state Republican leaders on Monday, the CEOs of nine different large companies headquartered in Indiana expressed concern that the state's controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act would lead to discrimination against employees. The law would allow corporations or private citizens to cite their religious beliefs as a defense if they are sued, which many say would make discrimination against LGBT individuals permissible. While Pence has said that the intent of the law was not to discriminate, the CEOs said on Monday that intent was not relevant.

  • Martha Stewart Delivers The Dirtiest Joke Of All At Justin Bieber's Roast

    30 Mar 2015 | 11:46 pm
    Turns out having Martha Stewart at the Comedy Central "Roast of Justin Bieber" was a good thing after all. Stewart's tame joke about the roast on Twitter earlier this month had some wondering if she could deliver the type of edgy and downright mean-spirited cracks that mark these celebrations: I wonder if Justin Bieber like roast beef or roast chicken or pot roast. I have to bring a roast to the roast don't I?— Martha Stewart (@MarthaStewart) March 6, 2015 Wonder no more, because Martha Stewart can push the envelope to the extreme.

    What was the best film of 2014? The Oscars said Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance). The New York Film Critics said it was Boyhood. The LA Film Critics Association agreed, naming The Grand Budapest Hotel as the runner-up. But if the IRAs have anything to say about it, the movie that might well rise in stature and come to be remembered as one of the defining films of the year is...Nightcrawler. That was the big winner at the 40th annual IRA Awards handed out over the weekend. It swept most major awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. Despite a lot of acclaim…

Gonzo, of course, plays the role of Shock G, which is fitting since the rapper is known to don an unusual artificial schnoz when he adopts the Humpty Hump persona. The clip is the latest from YouTuber isthishowyougoviral, a.k.a. Mylo the Cat.

Mr. Ferrara (the director), with whom you don't work unless you're pretty prepared for a raw and truthful ride, fully took his directorial journey, uncompromising in all things. What became clear was that the film was a…

  • A-Sides With Jon Chattman: Bleachers' Jack Antonoff's "All in on Everything"

    30 Mar 2015 | 11:49 am
    It's almost an insult or simply dismissive to refer to someone's "other" band as a side project even if it is one. It's even worse to ask that same person if their arguable "main" band is calling it quits. When you talk to Jack Antonoff of Bleachers and fun. neither should enter your mind. OK, they can but it's essentially a non-starter. Music matters than lame labels and questions, and pretty much everything else. So when Antonoff jumped on a phone call with yours truly (A-Sides) the last thing I wanted to discuss was whether fun's break is a break-up or if Bleachers is a hobby. Why? Because…

Well, if you loved that, you may sort of kind of like his distant cousin's rendition. Actor and dancer Tim Lacatena plays Polunin's so-called cousin, and, while he's no Polunin, he's not half bad. Donning a similarly revealing nude ensemble, Lacatena prances through the streets of Los Angeles, twirling through the Santa Monica Pier, leaping before the Church of Scientology and freaking a lot of people out in the process.

    In advertising, there's something called an ADLOB. It stands for "Ad Like Object" and it's called for when we need to present something to a client that's a simulacrum of an ad without being a full on ad itself. In dating, I've discovered the need for -- and therefore invented -- a similar term, a Datelob. A datelob as you might guess, stands for "Date Like Object." In New York, where every new acquaintance is bookmarked, sorted and categorized as either social or professional networking, it can often get confusing which falls into which category. A few years ago for instance, a man contacted…

He even once made a gold toothpick for rapper Snoop Dogg, according to an episode of Secret Lives Of The Super Rich, airing Tuesday on CNBC. But Power's pride and joy may be his $500,000 mountain bike made with 24-karat gold. The chain,…

    30 Mar 2015 | 10:50 pm
    Surfer Mark Healey has seen his share of hairy moments in the water, but not many will top this one. While out on a boat in the rough waters of the famed Mavericks surf spot in California's Half Moon Bay, Healey spotted a big wave and jumped into it. "Typically, in a potential maritime disaster, the best idea is to stay with the boat," the 33-year-old told Fox News.

  • U.S. To Commit To 28 Percent Emissions Cut As Contribution To Climate Treaty

    30 Mar 2015 | 5:23 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) — In a highly anticipated announcement, the United States will offer a roughly 28 percent emissions cut as its contribution to a major global climate treaty nearing the final stages of negotiation, according to people briefed on the White House's plans. The U.S. plans to announce its commitment Tuesday, the informal deadline for nations to submit their contributions to the United Nations. Although the goal of 26 percent to 28 percent by 2025 isn't new — President Barack Obama first unveiled it last year during a trip to Beijing — the U.S. proposal has drawn intense…
  • This Croatian 'Sea Organ' Uses Wind And Waves To Create Enchanting Harmonies

    30 Mar 2015 | 2:58 pm
    If the sound of waves lapping gently onto the shore puts you in a trance, then it's time you listen to the Morske Orgulje -- or, the Sea Organ. The crooning structure in the video above is a 230-foot long instrument on the coast of Zadar, Croatia, that plays mesmerizing harmonies using the movements of the sea. The Sea Organ was conceived in 2005 by architect Nikola Bašić, after a new jetty was built to welcome cruise ships and their tourists to the charming port town. On its surface, the organ looks like large marble steps leading into the Adriatic Sea. Below, however, lies a series of…
  • Fossil Fuel Divestment: Some Points of Utility

    30 Mar 2015 | 2:49 pm
    The Financial Times recently weighed in on the issue of fossil fuel divestment, arguing that divestment is "largely irrelevant to the ultimate objective of minimizing the threat of climate change." It's a common argument: that we can be certain that divesting won't affect anything. It's a favorite of industry-funded counterattacks and intransigent universities. The problem is that it's not a good argument. It's not based on reason, and it's not based on evidence. Now, when we talk about the future, we are reduced to possibility and likelihood. That does not mean, however, that we may throw…
  • Poll Finds Strong Majority Of Americans Support An International Climate Agreement

    30 Mar 2015 | 2:21 pm
    WASHINGTON -- A new poll finds an overwhelming majority of Americans support an international agreement to cut planet-warming emissions. The poll found 72 percent of likely 2016 voters said they support the United States signing on to an international agreement on climate change. The Benenson Strategy Group conducted the polling for the environmental organizations Sierra Club and Union of Concerned Scientists, and surveyed 1,000 expected voters. Sixty-five percent of respondents said they thought the United States “should take the lead and make meaningful reductions in its carbon emissions…

  • The Senator From Searchlight

    30 Mar 2015 | 1:16 pm
    Harry Reid's announcement that he will not stand for reelection to the Senate from Nevada in 2016 is a major loss for the climate movement -- and yet another signal that the U.S. Senate is being transformed by today's bifurcated, parliamentary politics into an institution almost unrecognizably different from its traditions. But while Reid may be the last Senate traditionalist to serve as Majority Leader, he was first and foremost the product of his own history as a miner's son who put himself through Georgetown Law School by working as a capitol police officer. Searchlight was a hardscrabble…

They're actually going to honor Watson's ability to abuse his power, wealth and corporate connections to evade accountability for the wide range of environmental and human rights crimes he has allegedly overseen as head of Chevron since 2010? WHAT?! There are a myriad of alleged reasons why presenting such an…
  • Climate Change This Week: Melting Poles, Fading Forest, Solar Soars, and More!

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:23 am
    Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. As we cut down much of the Amazon forest , much of the rest is starting to die off, greatly decreasing the cheapest way to store carbon in the world. Along the way, we are losing fascinating wildlife. Amazon Forest Now Stores A Third Less Carbon than formerly as deforestation and die-off of the remainder increases, reports Karl Mathiesen at The Guardian. Much deeper carbon emission cuts will be necessary to offset this loss of storage, say scientists. Related Headline: OO Deforestation Slowing, But Forests Are Breaking Down * *…

For the last 31 years, Phil Nuechterlein and his wife have been leading pack llamas through Alaska's state and national parks. Phil said they've been to Denali National Park and Preserve and up the Dalton Highway to Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve and have traveled extensively through Wrangell St. Elias…

Sure, the pups are a little demanding in their requests for human affection. But at least, unlike their feline counterparts, they let you know when they're done with your services with a gentle hand lick, rather than turning your arm into a scratching post. If the above video makes you want to find your own dog, the ASPCA adoption page is a good place to start the search. Like Us On Facebook Follow Us On Twitter

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:12 pm
    This past week, I joined 11 other medical students from the University of Chicago in volunteering at a Lakota Native American reservation in Rosebud, South Dakota. We spent some of our time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, and some time shadowing physicians at the local Indian Health Service (IHS) hospital. This experience was a great opportunity to not only learn about health care challenges on reservations, but also to reflect on the intersections between religion, service, and medicine. Aside from astronomically high rates of chronic conditions such as Type II Diabetes, obesity,…
  • Rahm Emanuel Wants To Capitalize On Controversy In Neighboring Indiana

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) isn't letting the crisis in neighboring Indiana over a controversial religious freedom law go to waste. Emanuel, who faces re-election next week, has urged about a dozen Indiana businesses to move to Chicago as many have publicly expressed their concern that the law permits discrimination against LGBT employees. In a letter to the Indiana businesses, Emanuel said that the new law would lead to discrimination against LGBT employees in Indiana and harm the state's ability to attract top talent, Crain's Chicago Business reported.

It is a classic story about today's bizarro world of big-money-dominated politics: Big Wall Street banks are so upset with U.S. Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren's call for…

  • In Historic Mayoral Race, New Poll Showcases Why Language Matters

    30 Mar 2015 | 9:57 am
    Whether they answered their phones at home or on their cell phones with a "bueno?," "hello?," or "si, digame," 406 Chicago Latino registered voters helped shape the results of a historic poll released earlier this week. In the country's third largest city, Latinos are almost a third of its population. Still in Chicago elections -- with Latinos making up nearly 1 in 5 registered voters -- they are consistently underrepresented in public opinion surveys. As the Windy City faces its first mayoral runoff election in history, a local firm that's been polling about this race weekly states, "it is…

Schock's moment of contrition came late in his six-minute farewell, delivered five days before his March 31 resignation date. Schock spent most of the speech discussing his accomplishments since joining the U.S. House in 2009. "I fought and opposed the billion-dollar stimulus bill, the government takeover of our health care and the massive new regulations put on small businesses. But more importantly for the people of my district ... I…

  • The Sooner Alberta Weans Itself From Its Resource Addiction, the Better

    Any Canadians curious about where Prime Minister Stephen Harper's plan to turn the country into an energy superpower is heading need look no further than the provincial budget just tabled by Alberta. The collapse in oil prices has turned a once-enviable budget surplus into a monster $5-billion deficit. What makes Alberta's current predicament even more troubling is how little of its royalty wealth the province has saved. In the last 25-plus years, Alberta has contributed barely anything to its Heritage Savings Fund, which was established in the mid-1970s by Premier Peter Lougheed. It now…

    Why does hunger persist in a world of plenty? In a world that has made so much progress in achieving many of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), cutting extreme poverty in half by 2010, why has it not yet cut hunger in half? Most people are surprised that it has virtually nothing to do with food supply, and far more to do with sexism, open defecation and weak local government. India has the world's largest share of hunger -- more hungry people than all of Africa combined. Experts estimate that half of that hunger is a result of water-borne disease caused by open defecation. With 17…

The data manipulation happened last year when there was heightened scrutiny nationwide over how long veterans were waiting to see doctors. The electronic records altered in Honolulu dealt with benefits claims, not medical appointments. But the finding underscores that there are ongoing problems within the system. The Honolulu…

In his new book, Fukuyama focuses on the dysfunction and decay of political systems, notably American democracy. Here are three…

And though half of hospitals in Africa don’t have access to clean water, the staff are well aware that expecting mothers need it, so many require the patients to cart it themselves…

The clip is the latest from YouTuber isthishowyougoviral, a.k.a. Mylo the Cat.

Did you know that if you search for "toaster" on Amazon you get 1,572 to choose from? So I had some decisions to make. Do I want a two-slice toaster or a four-slice toaster? Maybe I need one that also toasts muffins and cooks an egg. Do I want one that is red, blue or maybe teal with dots? Or perhaps one that looks like Darth Vader's helmet and stamps each slice with "Star Wars." Wanting to be an educated toaster purchaser, I started reading…

Well, if you loved that, you may sort of kind of like his distant cousin's rendition. Actor and dancer Tim Lacatena plays Polunin's so-called cousin, and, while he's no Polunin, he's not half bad. Donning a similarly revealing nude ensemble, Lacatena prances through the streets of Los Angeles, twirling through the Santa Monica Pier, leaping before the Church of Scientology and freaking a lot of people out in the process.

But this year, in the thick of parenting two children under the age of 3, my husband and I stayed as far away from the festivities as possible.

Did you know that if you search for "toaster" on Amazon you get 1,572 to choose from? So I had some decisions to make. Do I want a two-slice toaster or a four-slice toaster? Maybe I need one that also toasts muffins and cooks an egg. Do I want one that is red, blue or maybe teal with dots? Or perhaps one that looks like Darth Vader's helmet and stamps each slice with "Star Wars." Wanting to be an educated toaster purchaser, I started reading…
  • How SXSW Is Like Parenting

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:17 pm
    Over the past two weeks, at least 70,000 people migrated to my hometown of Austin, Texas for the annual SXSW extravaganza. Having lived here for 3+ decades, I've participated in my fair share of festival activities across interactive, film and music. But this year, in the thick of parenting two children under the age of 3, my husband and I stayed as far away from the festivities as possible. But I didn't have much FOMO (that's fear of missing out, Mom), as parenting and SXSW are, in many ways, the same. 1. Deportment Walking through the streets of Downtown Austin during Southby, you'll see…
  • The 10 Commandments, Mom Style

    30 Mar 2015 | 2:35 pm
    Since it's one of the times of the year when most everyone I know is celebrating something religious, I thought it would be fitting to do a post with some religious undertones. Exodus tells the story of how the Jews, having escaped slavery in Egypt, were wandering the dessert. Moses got word to climb Mount Sinai, where he was given the 10 Commandments, a list of expected behaviors for all. This got me thinking. In my house, I have a list of expected behaviors, too. I, by no means consider myself to be divine. Nor do I mean any disrespect to my religion or any other. But through all this Bible…
  • My Buddy Hal

    30 Mar 2015 | 12:24 pm
    Frankly, I've been a bit worried lately. My childhood friend Hal has sepsis and was in the hospital. He put a picture of his right leg on his Facebook wall and it looked like a rancid polish sausage. I called Hal every day for a while to see how he was. He sounded terrible, and he was on the strongest pain medications they had. Then, for a couple of days, he didn't even answer his cell phone. "Uh oh," I thought, and looked at his wall again, just to make sure he had not, uh, assumed room temperature, as Rush Limbaugh says. Thankfully, Hal is alive, and back home recovering. But during those…
  • 12 Headlines We'd Read if Madonna Were an Older Man

    30 Mar 2015 | 11:52 am
    Madonna gets a lot of heat for behaving in a way many believe is inappropriate for a woman over 50. Men who are also "of a certain age" often behave in rebel fashion, but are usually lauded for their actions. Here, the headlines we'd read if Madonna practiced what many older men preach. 1: Harrison Ford, Private Plane Pilot. On March 5, the 72-year-old actor crashed his World War II-era plane. The story made headlines around the world, all honoring how well he managed to handle the accident and hoping for his speedy recovery. Madonna's Headline No longer High, Flying or Adored, Madonna…

  • Martha Stewart Delivers The Dirtiest Joke Of All At Justin Bieber's Roast

    30 Mar 2015 | 11:46 pm
    Turns out having Martha Stewart at the Comedy Central "Roast of Justin Bieber" was a good thing after all. Stewart's tame joke about the roast on Twitter earlier this month had some wondering if she could deliver the type of edgy and downright mean-spirited cracks that mark these celebrations: I wonder if Justin Bieber like roast beef or roast chicken or pot roast. I have to bring a roast to the roast don't I?— Martha Stewart (@MarthaStewart) March 6, 2015 Wonder no more, because Martha Stewart can push the envelope to the extreme. She delivered one of the edgiest jokes of the night, and…
  • Gonzo And The Muppets Do Digital Underground's 'Humpty Dance' In New Mashup Video

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:09 pm
    All right, stop whatcha doin' because the latest Muppets mashup video is here and it features Gonzo taking on Digital Underground's "The Humpty Dance." Gonzo, of course, plays the role of Shock G, which is fitting since the rapper is known to don an unusual artificial schnoz when he adopts the Humpty Hump persona. The clip is the latest from YouTuber isthishowyougoviral, a.k.a. Mylo the Cat. Mylo the Cat has become something of an expert in Muppets mashups, having previously riffed on Biz Markie's "Just A Friend," The Beastie Boys' "So What’cha Want," Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and "Blurred…
  • Sergei Polunin's 'Distant Cousin' Sort Of Slays Hozier's 'Take Me To Church'

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:33 pm
    Remember that hauntingly beautiful viral video of ballet dancer and pinacle of half-naked beauty Sergei Polunin dancing his broken heart out to Hozier's "Take Me To Church"? Well, if you loved that, you may sort of kind of like his distant cousin's rendition. Actor and dancer Tim Lacatena plays Polunin's so-called cousin, and, while he's no Polunin, he's not half bad. Donning a similarly revealing nude ensemble, Lacatena prances through the streets of Los Angeles, twirling through the Santa Monica Pier, leaping before the Church of Scientology and freaking a lot of people out in the process.

The company's co-founders, who work for "large technology companies" in San Francisco, prefer to remain anonymous, but they joined HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski on Monday to discuss their business. Donning masks and using the pseudonyms Phropenius and Coxworth, the pair explained that they accept requests to redesign any logo, no questions asked. For $25 to $55, depending on the size of the logo, Penised will find a creative way to incorporate some phallic imagery…
  • Watch Hannibal Buress Expertly Shut Down A Heckler In Delaware

    30 Mar 2015 | 1:29 pm
    Here's why some people who go to comedy shows should be held to a two-drink maximum. In a video uploaded to YouTube on Sunday, comedian and "Broad City" star Hannibal Buress shows us the best way to deal with a heckler in the audience at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware. Buress doesn't just make fun of the (probably) intoxicated man who kept yelling out, he also relates to him -- albeit on a smaller scale. "I've done shit when I was drunk ... not interrupt a show that 1,100 other people are watching," he said. "When I'm drunk, I like to ruin one or two people's nights: A cab…

    Dawn Teo
    23 Mar 2015 | 1:18 pm
    This past November, my husband and I adopted our Mackenzie from foster care. She was only six months away from her 18th birthday and had spent more than half her life in the care of the state. "Mom, we need to do something to show people the magnitude of foster care in Arizona. Most people can't even picture 17,000 kids, much less understand just how many of us there are." Mackenzie said, one day out of the blue. "Let's create a video. We can get 17,000 pieces of candy or something and give people a visual." Mackenzie knows too much about foster care. She lived in 26 "placements," which she…

    8 Dec 2011 | 10:11 am
    WASHINGTON -- Thousands of protesters have descended on Capitol Hill to bring attention to the inequalities between the bottom 99 and the top 1 percent of Americans. Much of the media coverage has talked about the income inequalities, but those who stormed congressional offices and powerful K Street offices this week had a more specific message: The inequalities that matter are in power and opportunity. Activists have come from every corner of America to the nation's capital to recall that it's the middle class that's too big to fail. "[Congress] sees an indicator that a big financial…

    Staffers of at least one Congressional office, Rep. Tim Griffin (R-Ark.), distributed "homework" to Congressional town hall attendees in the form of a "watch list" that features photographs, personal information and pointed questions about six activists who are constituents of Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.), each of whom was openly critical of Webster at his town halls earlier this year. The handout, which also included an email sent by MoveOn to its members instructing them on how to be effective at town halls, can be downloaded by clicking here (PDF).

    The Department of Defense (DOD) is at the genesis of large-scale integration of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) into its non-tactical ground fleet as part of federal government efforts toward expanding usage of alternative fuel vehicles. The DOD has identified certain segments of the non-tactical fleet that are "ripe for achieving cost parity," according to Camron Gorguinpour of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Environment, and Logistics. There is no budget line for this project. Rather, the DOD is "investigating opportunities" to work within its…
  • SB1070 Goes to U.S. Supreme Court, SB1070 Author to Be Recalled

    Dawn Teo
    10 May 2011 | 5:44 pm
    After drafting Arizona's controversial new immigration law SB1070 last year, Arizona state Senate President Russell Pearce held the spotlight and became the anti-immigration poster boy in Arizona and across the nation. One year later, Pearce is on the verge of being recalled, and his pet legislation, SB1070, has been neutered by a federal court and is on its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In April, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's injunction against the most controversial parts of SB1070. Monday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced the…

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

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

    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…

  • Ted Cruz Is Trying and Failing to Weasel Out of His Obamacare Duplicity

    Bob Cesca
    27 Mar 2015 | 5:08 pm
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is now apparently undecided how he'll buy insurance, backing away from his Obamacare announcement earlier in the week. Either way, Cruz is a master at what Al Franken used to call "weasel words" -- talking points that are carefully constructed to sound legitimate but really aren't at all. Come to think of it, Stephen Colbert famously referred to this sort of thing as "truthiness." Cruz is especially on his game when the topic of the complicated Affordable Care Act comes up because even top-shelf reporters don't quite grasp all of the ins and outs of Obamacare and,…
  • Your Handy Guide to Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz

    Bob Cesca
    24 Mar 2015 | 1:11 pm
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has hopped aboard the GOP clown car, announcing his candidacy on Monday at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University. Let's talk about Cruz by way of a refresher on what he's all about. Doh! Canada Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1970 to an American mother and a foreign (Cuban) father. Sound familiar? The only difference between the presidency-related birth circumstances of President Obama and Ted Cruz is that Obama was born in the United States and Cruz wasn't. Of course this doesn't matter because Obama is black with a funny-sounding "exotic" name and Cruz is a…
  • This Year's CPAC Speakers: Three Generations of Stupid

    Bob Cesca
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:20 pm
    Sadly, the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference is over. And while none of the speakers used Super Big Gulps as props this year, the level of stupid reached all new depths. One speaker after another proved that far-right conservatives are more interested in thoughtless applause and bumper-sticker slogans than serious policymaking. For example, Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson delivered a speech in which he talked about sexually transmitted diseases. I give you CPAC science, by Phil Robertson: I mean, I'm reading this stuff from the CDC and it says, 'how many sexual encounters does…

    Bob Cesca
    16 Feb 2015 | 5:22 pm
    In case you haven't heard, Boyhood is an almost universally beloved movie by Richard Linklater, starring Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke, about a boy named Mason, who does various things such as growing incrementally older over the course of 12 years. How did Linklater and his cast achieve this miraculous visual effect? They filmed the movie sporadically beginning in 2002 and wrapped in 2014 -- 12 years. Did I mention it took 12 years to film, and that it's universally beloved? Literally everyone loves it. Everyone. It's received a lengthy roster of palmarès and…

We've barely heard from the other clown-car passengers and already Huckabee has navigated his way through at least three major new cycles in which he says something obnoxious then walks it back, but only after the GOP base scarfs it down like, I don't know, whatever it eats. Rind? We'll circle back to this. It's been yet another weekend and another Huckabee television appearance that included yet another deliberately awful…

    Last week, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz became the first candidate to formally enter the race for the Republican nomination for president. The Republican field is likely to be very crowded, but until recently there were no official candidates. Accordingly, one of the first thing that Cruz's announcement did was draw attention to the absurdity of the "campaign announcement." More.

    Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reid's decision not to seek reelection in 2016 will mark the end of his impressive 30-year career in the Senate. Mr. Reid, one of the least charismatic politicians to rise to his post but who mastered the Senate arcane rules to his party's advantage, anointed Chuck Schumer as his successor. "I feel very comfortable about this continuity of leadership with Schumer. He will be elected to replace me in 22 months." Additionally, another possible contender for the top job, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, has indicated that he will step aside to allow Mr. Schumer's…

A few minutes later, the middle-aged Italian-American man sharing our table leaned over. "I wasn't eavesdropping," he said, "but I heard you mention Israel." Soon he told me how much he liked Benjamin Netanyahu, and how much disdain he had for President Obama, leading to a discussion of the Israeli elections, which, at that point, were still a few days away. It felt like a long time since the only Americans who paid attention to elections in Israel were…

    The runoff election for mayor of Chicago between incumbent Rahm Emanuel and challenger Jesus "Chuy" Garcia is a reminder of why it is so important for Hillary Clinton to have no serious opponent in the Democratic Primary for president. Ms. Clinton and Mr. Emanuel are not exactly similar candidates, and they are running in different kinds of races. Mr. Emanuel is a divisive incumbent who has had a very controversial first term, while Ms. Clinton currently holds no elective office and was generally seen, particularly within the Democratic Party, as very successful in the last job she held.

He was building a presidential campaign around his brand of libertarian Republican politics that, while not exactly making him a frontrunner for his party's presidential nomination in 2016, made him a credible candidate. Mr. Paul's belief that the U.S. should be less engaged in every corner of the world, coupled with his views on personal freedoms, enabled him to stand out from the rest of the Republican pack.

    Joseph A. Palermo
    8 Mar 2015 | 7:19 am
    Fifty years ago, on March 8, 1965, although few Americans could see it at the time, President Lyndon Johnson embarked on a war in Vietnam that would fundamentally transform both societies. He opened up a new phase in the U.S. military's ongoing goal of keeping afloat the Saigon government. The United States was using the airfield near Da Nang as a base of operations for the bombing of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV). The landing of 3,500 Marines (two battalions) in the port city was to protect a U.S. airbase from National Liberation Front (NLF) attack and it marked a turning point in…

    Anyone who doubts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's drive and ability to wield power unhindered by any sense of fair play in pursuit of plutocratic ends should read Allen Raymond's 2008 book titled: How To Rig An Election: Confessions of a Republican Operative. Raymond recounts his career as a political hatchet man for the GOP. And even as aggressive and merciless the young Raymond was as a Republican operative, he notes that Mitch McConnell's oily demeanor still scared the shit out of him. Raymond is a rich white Republican guy with an illustrious New England pedigree who had…

    With President Barack Obama's decision to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba we might be entering a new era where the ghosts of America's past military interventions in the Caribbean and Central America finally can be placed in a more realistic perspective. Throughout the 1980s, the Reagan administration and its bipartisan allies in Congress had argued that the embargo against Cuba, like the Contra war in Nicaragua, U.S. military aid to El Salvador, and the October 1983 invasion of Grenada, were all steps in countering Soviet power in the region. The problem the United States had with…

    Last August, President Barack Obama admitted to the press: "we tortured some folks." But he also added that torturing people "is not who we are." His CIA director, John Brennan, calls the CIA torturers "patriots." So which is it? Are they "patriots," deserving of our admiration, or sadists who engaged in acts that are contrary to "who we are?" The Senate Intelligence Committee's executive summary report on CIA torture concludes that at least 26 of the people the CIA contractors tortured were innocent of any ties to terrorism whatsoever. One of the CIA contractors, James Mitchell, was on TV…

Is the Democratic Party the party of labor unions or the party of trade deals that outsource American jobs? Is it the party of the environment or a water carrier for fossil fuel corporations? Is it the party of public education or the party of busting teachers' unions and privatizing schools? Does it favor a single-payer health care system or…

    Robert L. Borosage
    5 Mar 2015 | 8:46 am
    U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) just announced that fast-track trade legislation won't be introduced until April. Thanks to the objections of U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), the effort to fast-track fast track has been put on hold. Fast track -- "Trade Promotion Authority" -- is designed to grease the skids for passage of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement that is still being negotiated behind closed doors. The postponement opens up a month to have a true national debate on our global trade tax policies. Surely one is long overdue. The Full Catastrophe The U.S. has racked up a…
  • The Case for a Populist Challenger in the Democratic Primaries

    Robert L. Borosage
    18 Feb 2015 | 9:14 am
    A raft of reasons are floated for why someone should challenge the prohibitive favorite, Hillary Clinton, in the Democratic primaries, most of them spurious. Yes, polls show Democrats want a contest, not a coronation for their presidential nomination. The press and talking heads also yearn for a contest, if only to have something to cover. But this doesn't justify a run. Contrary to many pundits, Hillary (first name used as shorthand to distinguish her from her husband) doesn't need a primary contest to get her campaign in shape. She's already been central to three presidential campaigns, as…

    The swagger was back. Ignoring the electoral rebuke of 2014, President Barack Obama claimed the growing economy as a mandate for his progressive agenda, delivering a State of the Union address bristling with veto threats and challenging Congress to stand with working families. The speech roused Obama's popular majority coalition that elected him twice against the Republican congressional majority, which captured far fewer votes. While ending with a long, soaring peroration about "one America" in Obama's signature voice, the speech itself threw down the gauntlet before Republicans, inviting a…

    Legislators in the new Congress haven't even cut the curtains for their offices, but it is already clear that the right has no clue and the "center" offers no hope. Republican Mitch McConnell, newly installed as Senate majority leader, announced that his goal is not to be "scary." House Republican leader John Boehner declared his troops had to prove Republicans can "govern." But Republicans are already tripping over those low bars. They stuffed the legislative docket with "message" bills to repeal Obamacare, rollback immigration reforms, and cripple agencies that protect the environment…

    The first signs of the November election returns are apparent in the $1 trillion spending bill that the House of Representatives passed last night in Washington. This spending bill was forged with resurgent Republicans on their best behavior. They are still a minority in the Senate in the lame-duck session. Their leaders exercised adult supervision over the wingnuts, rejecting calls for a government shutdown over immigration because Obama. They largely adhered to the budget deal cut last year on spending limits, and agreed to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year through…
