    We're coming up on one of my favorite times of the year: that time, just after spring breaks out but before summer begins, in which thousands of college graduates are released into the world. And as they go forth we give them advice, lots of advice. The advice varies, sometimes conflicts, but the general idea is: Here is what you need to know in order to succeed in the world. I've given a few of these speeches myself. Indeed, Thrive grew out of a commencement speech I gave last year at Smith College.

    We have long had abundant reason to believe that most of us living in the modern world consume too much sodium and would benefit from consuming less. But whether the topic is salt, or saturated fat, or calories, or even the health effects of consuming vegetables and fruits -- saltation (the jumping from one position to another) seems to be the prevailing inclination in modern nutrition. Certainly it is the inclination that predominates in the popular press. Salt is just the latest nutrient to get caught up in that proclivity. This isn't the first time salt claimed its 15 minutes of notoriety.

But these are all really the fumes of nostalgia. What else is there? Well, we have the best fleet of aerial drone death-dealers in the world (for now).

    This was a week of reshuffling and resetting. On Friday, President Obama announced the resignation of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Yes, the Obamacare signup system was initially botched, but Sebelius also presided over a historic expansion of medical coverage, with the number of uninsured Americans having dropped to 2008 levels. On Thursday, David Letterman further shook up late night TV by announcing his replacement would be Stephen Colbert. As brilliant as he's been as "Stephen Colbert," it'll be exciting to see the full Colbert in action. Meanwhile, the Heartbleed computer bug reminded…
  • Burnout: Time to Abandon a Very Costly Collective Delusion

    6 Apr 2014 | 8:54 pm
    As I've been out on the road talking about Thrive, it's been inspiring meeting people and hearing their stories about how they're trying to navigate our culture of overwork and burnout. "I don't remember the last time I was not tired," one young woman told me after my conversation with Sheryl Sandberg at the San Francisco Symphony Hall. And many others -- men and women, young and old -- echo that same sentiment. Especially among the young ones, there is one question that has been coming up again and again, which is some variation of "hey, it's OK for you to say 'you don't need to burnout' now…

    This week reminded us once again of the costs of accepting lowered expectations as the new normal. On Wednesday, a 5-4 Supreme Court decision struck down overall limits on campaign donations, further ceding our political system to the highest bidder in the guise of "free speech." On the same day, Ft. Hood, Texas suffered its second mass shooting in five years, as a married father of four, in a fit of anger, killed four people, including himself, and wounded 16 others. Senator Harry Reid introduced a background checks bill the next day, but it will likely suffer the same fate as the one that…

    This week was the homestretch for Obamacare enrollment, with the deadline to sign up without penalty arriving tomorrow. On Thursday, the White House announced that enrollments had exceeded the CBO's estimate of 6 million. No doubt, furious debate over the program will continue into the midterm election, even as one poll finds 53 percent of Americans are tired of the endless back and forth. But now that this phase is done, how about instead of debating health insurance we focus on actual health care? Let's start with the fact that 75 percent of health care spending, and two-thirds of doctor…

  • A Closer Look At The 'Game Of Thrones' Baby Naming Trend

    The Huffington Post News Editors
    17 Apr 2014 | 1:16 pm
    Thanks to "Girls," "Duck Dynasty" and "Breaking Bad," there are more Shoshannas, Jases, and Skylers crawling around than before those shows were popular. But online men's magazine AskMen has pointed out why the baby naming trend inspired by "Game Of Thrones" is particularly interesting: Unlike the aforementioned names, the name "Khaleesi" didn't exist at all before the show aired. There were zero Khaleesis born before the "Game Of Thrones" era began in 2011. By the end of 2012, and thousands of addicted fans later, there were 146 babies given that name.Read More...

She started writing as a teen and, since then, has sold more than 500 million copies of her books in more than 40 countries and had 29 best-sellers, many of which have been adapted for the big or small screens.

    As a New York City Foot Surgeon, I want to provide some insight on Eli Manning's "arthroscopic ankle debridement" surgery that was performed. The surgery has sparked concerns that his better days may be behind him. Of course, any surgery on a pro-athlete poses a threat to continue playing at high level. Before anyone can call it quits for Manning, its best to understand the surgery he had performed and what that really means in terms of recovery. What is Ankle Arthroscopy Debridement? Eli had a very common orthopedic procedure called an arthroscopy. It involves accessing a joint through very…

    17 Apr 2014 | 9:54 am
    Recently, one of my friends (actually, an ex-boyfriend) said, "I was just telling someone life gets so much better in your 30s." He was right. And wrong. It gets better: more simple, more meaningful, more established, more fulfilling, more STABLE. You'll have fewer fights, cry less tears and make fewer bad decisions. But you'll also have less fun. Here's the best way I can put it: Life will feel less magical. (Probably because it becomes more predictable and less spur-of-the-moment). When I was 20, I skipped Friday classes and spent a three-day weekend on the road with one of my favorite rock…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he hopes Russia lives up to its agreement with Ukraine but adds that Russia's previous actions give him concern. Obama says his hope is that Russia will follow through in the next several days on promises made at its meeting Thursday in Geneva with leaders from the United States, the European Union and Ukraine. The meeting was an attempt to find a way to reduce tensions between Ukraine and Russia.

    Every year thousands of unaccompanied and undocumented children come to the United States from across the globe.

In the U.S. they hope to reunite with parents or other relatives, and they dream of attending school and earning a living. The overwhelming majority, an estimated 60,000 for FY 2014, are apprehended crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and placed into deportation proceedings before the overwhelmed and backlogged Immigration Courts. During the pendency of proceedings, they are frequently sent to live…

    While not necessarily carried out in practice, equal pay for equal work has been law in the United States since the 1960s. Phyllis Schlafly, a major opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment during the 1970s and the founder of the "pro-family" organization, the Eagle Forum, suggested in her recent op-ed that the gender pay gap is necessary due to biology and the marriage market. Schlafly's suggestion that women should make less than their male counterparts demonstrates not only that she is still living in the 1950s, but completely out of touch with the demographic and social realities facing…

He is not... repeat, not... for containment of Iran. But by the same token, that doesn't mean that the United States should forget about containment as an option. To be against a 'we will never contain Iran' resolution is not the same as being for containment of a nuclear Iran. Rather, it means that foreign policy is complicated and doesn't fit neatly within a bumper sticker, headline or…

    Although critics have raised eyebrows at President Obama's late night appearances, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that "The Daily Show" might have been Obama's "toughest" interview during the 2012 campaign. Speaking to CBS News' White House correspondent Major Garrett at George Washington University Thursday, Carney said that during the last election, Obama campaign staffers had debated whether it was appropriate for the president sit down with Stewart and other less conventional interviewers. They ultimately decided it was a more effective way to reach younger viewers.

I also know the White House likes to blame Fox News for all their problems, but it is NOT just Fox New that outs the White House about its false claim of transparency. The New York Times and the Associated Press, both gold standards in the eyes of many, have been right there with Fox News about the…
  • My Conversation With Best-Selling Author Jackie Collins

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:13 pm
    Tonight on PBS, I have a conversation with one of the world's most successful writers, Jackie Collins. She started writing as a teen and, since then, has sold more than 500 million copies of her books in more than 40 countries and had 29 best-sellers, many of which have been adapted for the big or small screens. Collins reflects on her longevity as a novelist and previews her seventh book in the Lucky Santangelo series, Confessions of a Wild Child, and her new cookbook inspired by the heroine, The Lucky Santangelo Cookbook. In the clip below, Collins details the three things one has to have…
  • The 'Front Page Rule'

    17 Apr 2014 | 9:48 am
    Earlier this month, a New York Magazine article went viral, detailing the sordid stories of an anonymous personal assistant who was tasked with everything from breaking up with her boss's boyfriend to acting as a drug mule for the celebrity employer. "The Devil Wears Prada" chronicled a nasty, self-centered magazine editor, landing the book on the New York Times bestseller list and later becoming a movie starring Meryl Streep. More recently, "Horrible Bosses" took workplace horror stories to the extreme, telling the story of three employees who choose to fight back, albeit in unconventional…
  • Denver Post Scrubs Abortion Story From Its Website

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:22 am
    Here are eight reasons why Denver Post reporter Kurtis Lee's blog post, quoting Rep. Mike Coffman about personhood and abortion-for-rape-and-incest, was newsworthy and should not have been deleted from The Post's website on Tuesday. 1. It was news! The core of Denver Post Politics Editor Chuck Plunkett's written explanation for scrubbing the piece is that it was basically old news. But Lee's piece advanced our understanding of Coffman's thinking both on the personhood amendment (he opposes it under any circumstances; see number four below) and on abortion-for-rape-and-incest (he supports it…

  • Jon Stewart Was Obama's 'Toughest' Interview During The Presidential Campaign

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:59 pm
    Although critics have raised eyebrows at President Obama's late night appearances, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that "The Daily Show" might have been Obama's "toughest" interview during the 2012 campaign. Speaking to CBS News' White House correspondent Major Garrett at George Washington University Thursday, Carney said that during the last election, Obama campaign staffers had debated whether it was appropriate for the president sit down with Stewart and other less conventional interviewers. They ultimately decided it was a more effective way to reach younger viewers.

    NEW YORK -- Andrew Sullivan unloaded Wednesday on New York Times investigative journalist Jo Becker and her forthcoming book, Forcing the Spring: Inside the Fight for Marriage Equality. Sullivan, a gay journalist who has advocated for same-sex marriage for decades, argued that Becker overplays the accomplishments of a few figures in the marriage equality fight -- namely, Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin, Republican operative Ken Mehlman, and Proposition 8 attorneys David Boies and Ted Olson -- and minimizes or ignores many others, like ACLU lawyer Dan Foley and Freedom to Marry…

    What will the world be like in 2064? Just imagine: Will we have robot caregivers, like in the freaky sci-fi flick "I, Robot?" Will we be able to teleport using a transporter just like on the TV show "Star Trek?" Those may be things only seen in Hollywood productions... for now. Many Americans think they will be a part of our future in mere decades, according to a new Pew Research Center study. Story continues below. For the study, 1,001 men and women across the U.S. were asked over the phone whether five different scientific advancements will come about in the next 50 years -- lab-grown…
  • The World's Poorest People Live In These 5 Countries

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:12 pm
    Two-thirds of the world’s poorest people live in just five countries, according to a new World Bank study. Poverty is on the decline globally and those who are subsisting on less than $1.25 a day are concentrated in five areas -- India, China, Nigeria, Bangladesh and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Eighteen percent of the world’s population was living in extreme poverty in 2010, down from 36 percent in 1990, according to the World Bank study, which was released on April 10 in conjunction with the group's annual spring conference. The World Bank has a set a goal of reducing extreme…

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:09 pm
    President Barack Obama expressed his frustration with states that chose not to expand Medicaid "for no other reason than political spite" against him, saying that decision has been hurtful to millions. "You have 5 million people who could be having health insurance right now at no cost to these states, zero cost to these states, other than ideological reasons, they have chosen not to provide health insurance for their citizens," Obama said during a press conference Thursday. "That's wrong. It should stop. Those folks should be able to get health insurance like everybody else." The president…
  • Leading With Your Life: Why You Are the Job

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Last month, Pope Francis was expected to enter an empty confessional booth in St. Peter's Basilica to hear congregants' confessions. Instead, he approached an occupied booth, knelt before the ordinary priest within and began confessing his own sins -- in full public view. He then rose, entered a confessional and set himself to the scheduled task of hearing confessions. Like many of the gestures for which this Pope has been most praised, this one was not, pragmatically speaking, a significant action: Pope Francis simply confessed his sins before a priest, as his Catholic faith prescribes. But…
  • Obamacare Sign-Ups Hit 8 Million In Remarkable Turnaround

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:54 pm
    In a remarkable rebound from the botched rollout of Obamacare, 8 million people signed up for private health insurance via the exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act since October, President Barack Obama announced during a press briefing at the White House Thursday. March and April saw an uptick in the share of young people signing up for private plans using the exchanges. These people, who are presumably healthier, are needed to balance out the medical costs of older, sicker consumers. About 35 percent of people who signed up throughout the open enrollment period were under 35 years…

  • Equal Pay for Equal Work: A Response to Phyllis Schlafly

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:46 pm
    While not necessarily carried out in practice, equal pay for equal work has been law in the United States since the 1960s. Phyllis Schlafly, a major opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment during the 1970s and the founder of the "pro-family" organization, the Eagle Forum, suggested in her recent op-ed that the gender pay gap is necessary due to biology and the marriage market. Schlafly's suggestion that women should make less than their male counterparts demonstrates not only that she is still living in the 1950s, but completely out of touch with the demographic and social realities facing…
  • Why Every Politician Should Undertake a Business Apprenticeship

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Starting a company is NOT at all easy, and unfortunately there simply is no way to really learn about it other than by doing it. No book, school, mentoring, or even apprenticeship can substitute for hands-on experience. When you consider that doctors spend a minimum of two years in pre-med, four years in med school, one year in internship, and two years in residency before you would consider putting yourself in their hands, why do we allow politicians to enter parliament with little or no experience and expect them to improve the state and welfare of our nation?? Even barbers have to have at…
  • Market Noise and Fed Messaging

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:22 pm
    Markets have been jittery, and airways have been filled with angst. Tech stocks, biotech stocks and other high-fliers of the recent past have been falling in price. Some of the more dramatic winners of yesteryear are losing money to more conservative blue-chip names and bonds. This has been a clear "risk-off" start to the year. While volatility has increased, we don't agree with the intense level of hand-wringing. In fact, we think that the year has opened rather well. After years of solidly up markets, investors seem surprised that markets will from time to time go down. As older hands, we…
  • Congrats, Graduates: Now Go Out There and Redefine Success

    We're coming up on one of my favorite times of the year: that time, just after spring breaks out but before summer begins, in which thousands of college graduates are released into the world. And as they go forth we give them advice, lots of advice. The advice varies, sometimes conflicts, but the general idea is: Here is what you need to know in order to succeed in the world. I've given a few of these speeches myself. Indeed, Thrive grew out of a commencement speech I gave last year at Smith College. This year my book tour is taking me to a lot of colleges, and my first piece of advice is to…

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:25 pm
    Senate candidate and North Carolina state House Speaker Thom Tillis (R) responded Thursday to Democratic attacks, saying he had fired staffers who had affairs with lobbyists. Tillis accused Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) of "meddling" in his race's Republican primary after the Democratic group Senate Majority PAC released a TV ad Tuesday that focused on affairs between lobbyists and two former members of Tillis' staff. Tillis' former chief of staff and roommate, Charles Thomas, as well as the speaker's former policy adviser, Amy Hobbs, resigned in 2012 after their relationships…

Case in point. And while it's true that many people -- young or not -- lack full understanding of the permanence of the Internet and how…

    Thanks to "Girls," "Duck Dynasty" and "Breaking Bad," there are more Shoshannas, Jases, and Skylers crawling around than before those shows were popular. But online men's magazine AskMen has pointed out why the baby naming trend inspired by "Game Of Thrones" is particularly interesting: Unlike the aforementioned names, the name "Khaleesi" didn't exist at all before the show aired. There were zero Khaleesis born before the "Game Of Thrones" era began in 2011. By the end of 2012, and thousands of addicted fans later, there were 146 babies given that name. What's more, "Khaleesi" isn't even…

Each week viewers are taken into the utterly chaotic lives of the good people of Olivia Pope & Associates and each week something extraordinarily scandalous happens to the people we have grown to think of as family over the past three seasons. However, because shows such as Scandal are so much like real life, there are some very important life lessons to take away from it each week, because after all, which one of us can't say we haven't been a part of…

That was good, because I reeeeeeally wanted to review Under the Skin, but constraints -- both on time and finances -- meant that I needed a good reason to get to it. Since we were committed to reviewing Captain America: The Winter Soldier -- an okay film, but not really more than that -- on the Cinefantastique Spotlight the week Under the Skin was debuting, Jim's advocacy was just the motivation I required. So let it be noted, in case you had any doubt, that this confirms Jim…

Credit: Cameron Burnell - Pool/Getty Images Blitz popped the question to the royal baby via a t-shirt that read "Marry Me George." She topped off the look with a white tutu and a miniature British flag to boot. Her best accessory, though, was her winning (and very eager-looking!) smile.

  • Makeup Is Not a Prerequisite for Career Success

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:09 am
    Over the past few months, I've read several essays linking makeup and professionalism. Written by stylish women working in corporate America, these articles insist that daily makeup application is a must for working women, and that going without it may degrade your image of competence and reliability. They inevitably cite a recent study, the results of which indicate that women wearing just the right amount of makeup appear more trustworthy and likable to most observers. And they send readers scrambling to Sephora to upgrade their stashes. I never experimented with makeup as a girl and…
  • Fearless Aging: Famous Women Embrace the Wrinkles

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:49 am
    Diane Keaton Bobbi Brown Helen Mirren Meryl Streep Who Else? Who is aging gracefully and honestly that we identify as women role models? My mom says I am the first person to ever write about fearless aging. But, I'm taking my cues from the cosmetics industry and Hollywood. Years ago those two sources would have added misery to my self-image but times they are a'changin. Leave it to the baby boomers to put a new age spin of acceptance on the inevitable. I am delighted to know that at mid-50 there are women at the forefront of these two industries who are softening our perception of aging.

  • Girls Are Already Lining Up To Marry Prince George (And Who Can Blame Them?)

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:39 pm
    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are certainly going to have their hands full! During the royal family's visit to Wellington, New Zealand on Wednesday, Prince George received a marriage proposal from a cute-as-can-be 11-month-old baby girl named Ruby Cate Blitz. Credit: Cameron Burnell - Pool/Getty Images Blitz popped the question to the royal baby via a t-shirt that read "Marry Me George." She topped off the look with a white tutu and a miniature British flag to boot. Her best accessory, though, was her winning (and very eager-looking!) smile. And although Prince George wasn't there to…
  • Joan Rivers Slams Gwyneth Paltrow, Says Actress Was Mad About 'Fashion Police' Critique

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:37 pm
    Gwyneth Paltrow was apparently none too pleased when Joan Rivers and the "Fashion Police" crew dissed her style choices on the E! show. Rivers sat down with Andy Cohen for "Watch What Happens Live" on Wednesday, April 16. When a caller asked about the worst backlash Rivers had ever received from her celebrity style criticisms on "Fashion Police," the 80-year-old revealed it was from the GOOP founder. "The worst criticism was, ugh, Gwyneth Paltrow," she said, sticking out her tongue. "She came in and yelled at us, but she stood up, she can't sit down, because she's got a stick up her rear-end.

    Every weekday, I take a six-mile drive through Mid-City Los Angeles to pick up my daughter from preschool. There are no fewer than 20 stoplights along the way, and my trek takes 30 minutes in each direction. But lately, that drive has been taking even longer. Ten minutes into a typical trip, I've already had to honk my horn three times to nudge traffic along. No, I am not an aggressive driver. But I have become a frustrated one, bearing witness to a disturbing trend that seems to be growing with every passing day: Texting at stoplights. Never mind that it's against the law in California.

  • Cat Attacks Family, Sends 3 To Hospital

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:10 pm
    Don't let that cute necktie fool you: This kitty's got some serious claws. Three members of a Roseville, Calif., family were taken to an area hospital Tuesday night after their pet cat -- named Khat -- became suddenly aggressive and attacked them. "He's never been an aggressive cat. He's never been mean. He just flipped," the owner, who did not want to be identified, told KXTV news. The attack occurred after animal control had closed, so the Roseville Fire Department ended up responding to the cat-tastrophe. "One of the patients had facial lacerations. The cat had actually jumped up on her…

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego cable company employee expecting a shipment of fiberglass equipment got a shock when he discovered two newborn kittens clinging to life inside the box. KGTV reports (http://bit.ly/1gE7wGG ) Thursday that the kittens are recovering after being accidentally shipped by truck from the Los Angeles area to a Cox Communications office in San Diego. Upon finding the tiny black cats, a Cox warehouse worker called his nephew, who happens to work for the Humane Society in San Diego. The kittens were so young they still had their umbilical cords attached. Humane Society…
  • Your Couch Is Far More Dangerous Than You Think

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Why are we so afraid to let our kids play outside, when we know that such activity is vital for their physical and mental health? Our fears are so extreme that in a few cases, parents have been arrested for allowing their children to play outside unattended. My mother would have been sent to jail on an almost daily basis. Until recently, it was common for kids to come home from school, grab a snack, and head outside to play in the neighborhood. This was true for me growing up in suburban Minneapolis, and also for my parents who grew up in L.A. and Detroit. Even in the nation's city of cities…

    Close to the end of his life, legendary Rear Admiral Hyman G. Rickover of the U.S. Navy said at a lecture: "We should value the faculty of knowing what we ought to do and having the will to do it. Knowing is easy; it is the doing that is difficult. The critical issue is not what we know but what we do with what we know." With his incisive tenacity, the accomplished four star Admiral captured the spirit of the human legacy; overcoming adversity with ingenuity. The admiral was the longest serving naval officer due to his wealth of knowledge about nuclear propulsion technology and his catalytic…

    Meet Ashol-Pan. She is 13 years old, and she is an eagle huntress-in-training. Photographer Asher Svidensky captured this stunning shot of Ashol-Pan during a 40-day trip to Mongolia late last year.

    When I saw The Bridges of Madison County musical on Broadway last night, never would I have imagined a family connection nor a birthday connection. Yet there were both. I was prompted to see the musical for two reasons. I loved the film, starring a Vassar College classmate Meryl Streep, and I had just taken a class a few days earlier taught by the much heralded Robert McKee on the love story genre, i.e. how to write a love story screenplay. The class featured the film. The course with about a hundred students was at the French Institute at E. 60th between Park and Madison. So, it was a happy…

    CHICAGO (AP) — An Illinois House committee has advanced a plan to devote $100 million in state funds to help bring President Barack Obama's presidential museum and library to Chicago. The committee voted unanimously Thursday following a hearing in Chicago. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was among several officials who spoke in favor of the funding. He says the money would return dividends "well beyond" $100 million. Emanuel also says the funding would be a fitting way to welcome Obama back to his hometown.

Pucks were dropped across North America as the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs began on Wednesday night and it didn't take long for jaw-dropping and possibly jaw-breaking things to start happening. Even if you haven't watched anything involving a puck since T.J. Oshie became Captain America in Sochi and don't know Doc Emrick from Dr. Seuss, playoff hockey has something for you. While dedicated hockey fans and those with Canadian citizenship already know all about the thrilling nature of playoff hockey, casual fans of the sport…

His scenes with the statuesque Vanessa Williams exemplified two actors at the top of their game who clearly delight in being bad. However, Urie, a Julliard-trained actor, has significant stage credits, including notable Broadway runs in Angels in America and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Though, a seemingly underground play based on a strange-but-true pop-culture footnote quietly became a break-out hit for both playwright Jonathan…

    On April 17, 1946, French mandatory rule over Syria came to an end after 25 tumultuous years of a colonial rule which started with violence and ended with violence. For France, the granting of Mandatory rule over the Levant was the realization of a long expectation to extend its tutelage over the Christians of the region, particularly the Maronite Catholics of Mount Lebanon, "our little brothers of the Orient." For the overall Sunni Muslim majority of the Levant, particularly in Syria, that meant the replacement of a Sunni Muslim domination [the Ottoman Empire] with a Colonial Christian…

Her parents had also been killed and in the streets outside, dogs fed on the decomposing bodies of her neighbors. This scene, witnessed by Amnesty International researchers, may be reminiscent of one that occurred during the Rwanda genocide. But this girl was a Muslim, not a Tutsi. The village was in the Central African Republic, not in Rwanda. And this happened in February, not 20 years ago. A decade ago,…

These words from a boy soldier in South Sudan echo in my mind, as he threatened to kill a pastor and a busload of over 50 elderly Sudanese people. As violence between the Sudanese government and anti-government forces began to overtake the town of Malakal, World Vision staff was frantically transporting busloads of Sudanese people to safety when they were stopped and threatened at gunpoint by a soldier who could not have been older than 15. As an emergency response director at World Vision, I have witnessed…

As Ukraine grapples with Russia's annexation of Crimea and pro-Russia unrest in the country's east, Putin used his annual call-in show, broadcast on state television, to defend sending Russian troops into Crimea and deny that Russia was behind the deadly protests in eastern Ukraine. Here are some of the highlights from "Direct Line With Vladimir Putin" we wouldn't want you to miss, in case you didn't tune in for all 81 questions. 1. Obama…

The convict, identified by his first name Bilal, had been sentenced to death for killing a teenager, Abdollah Hosseinzadeh, during a street fight in the market of the northern Iranian town of Nour seven years ago, the ISNA news agency reported. At the time, both Bilal and Hosseinzadeh were around 17 years old, ISNA said. Bilal was brought blindfolded to…

  • Jon Stewart Was Obama's 'Toughest' Interview During The Presidential Campaign

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:59 pm
    Although critics have raised eyebrows at President Obama's late night appearances, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that "The Daily Show" might have been Obama's "toughest" interview during the 2012 campaign. Speaking to CBS News' White House correspondent Major Garrett at George Washington University Thursday, Carney said that during the last election, Obama campaign staffers had debated whether it was appropriate for the president sit down with Stewart and other less conventional interviewers. They ultimately decided it was a more effective way to reach younger viewers.
  • The Second Coming of Homeless Jesus

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:51 pm
    This week's poll from the Lester & Charlie Institute of Forward Thinking! A couple of weeks ago, we told you about some of the unbelievably heartless ways some American communities have been dealing with homeless people -- from making it illegal to give them blankets on cold nights to letting cops knock the free, church-donated hot dogs out of their cold, near-dead and greedy hands. (Really!) The stories sound incredible, but they're true. Too many local governments think the homeless should just go away and stop depressing everyone with their mere presence. Or at least find another town to…

Sure we've heard it; perhaps we've even been guilty of saying it, but it would appear certain that the guy in this story had it stored up in his arsenal (among some serious issues and self-control problems, which you'll come to see). I say this because in thinking back to the bizarre scenario, I think it's only safe to say he was insane. With a little bit of an asshole thrown in there.

  • QVC Solves Global Warming

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:14 pm
    In 1690, the Massachusetts Bay Colony issued the first paper money in the colonies that would later become the United States. In 1691, QVC (Quality and Value for the Colonies) was created as a way for people to spend the new money they had. Today, QVC (in 1986, the C was changed to stand for Convenience), QVC's 2013 sales generated 8.6 billion dollars in annual revenues. QVC employs 17,000 people and sells tens of thousands of products a year. They control the governments of several countries and have cornered the market on sales to developing planets. QVC's vision is simple: There is no…

  • Girls Are Already Lining Up To Marry Prince George (And Who Can Blame Them?)

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:39 pm
    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are certainly going to have their hands full! During the royal family's visit to Wellington, New Zealand on Wednesday, Prince George received a marriage proposal from a cute-as-can-be 11-month-old baby girl named Ruby Cate Blitz. Credit: Cameron Burnell - Pool/Getty Images Blitz popped the question to the royal baby via a t-shirt that read "Marry Me George." She topped off the look with a white tutu and a miniature British flag to boot. Her best accessory, though, was her winning (and very eager-looking!) smile. And although Prince George wasn't there to…
  • Pulling Things From People's Hair Becomes A Prank For The Gullible

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:16 pm
    Imagine if someone pulled a pineapple out of your hair. Seems pretty unbelievable, doesn't it? Well... apparently not if you're these people. Using a fairly simple hand-off deception, the guys from JStuStudios came up with a prank that convinces people that they had just pulled some utterly ridiculous things from their hair. Some of the targets went as far as actually thanking the guys for removing things, like a roll of toilet paper, from the backs of their heads. Watch the video above to see all the reactions.
  • 'Tuition' Is A Beyonce Parody With A Serious Point On Student Loans

    17 Apr 2014 | 11:50 am
    While the music video "Tuition" above may seem like a tongue-in-cheek parody of Beyonce's hit song "Partition," its creator and star, Chanel Carroll, has a very serious point to make towards Sallie Mae: "She just wants to lead a debt free life!" The message by Carroll is one very relatable to the 40 million borrowers who have taken on student loans to pay for their education, particularly in light of the recent probe into and findings about the company continue to come to light. If you're taking on or still paying off student loans yourself, you may find yourself simultaneously laughing and…

    Time has a strange affect on events in our lives. I feel I'm looking through a glass of water when I look back 25 years to this day, March 24, 1989. I'd left Seattle University and the Ballard Lochs on the M/V Westward heading north through the Inside Passage of British Columbia for the sac roe herring fishery in Sitka. No time in my life is etched as clearly as that spring. There is a certain magic about following Spring to Alaska. Per my not so scientific study, I've determined Spring moves at about 9 nautical miles an hour, about the same as the hundred foot boat I worked on. The inside…

Then someone did something stupid in Juneau, so you'll have to wait a week while I sort this doofus out. First, the reporting on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders from Kyle Hopkins and Marc Lester for the Anchorage Daily News has been incredible. Disturbing, and incredibly needed. Two percent of children born in Alaska have FASD. We need solutions and education. Sadly, we have a "think tank" formed by Sen. Pete Kelly that is sitting on empty.

    Though not Catholic, I went to a Jesuit University and had one of the most spiritual experiences of my life in Rome. I watched the smoke from the Sistine Chapel signal the selection of a new pope. I like the new guy, Pope Francis. He's not perfect, and neither is the institution, but this guy's a rebel. I think Jesus -- you know, the guy who chased the investment bankers out of the temple -- would like him too. This pope doesn't prance around in red Prada shoes like the previous quitter pope. He has instructed clergy to sell their newer cars, give the money to the poor and drive beaters like…

    It is hard to imagine being abducted, away from your family for eleven years, chained, beaten, with no hope for freedom even when your captors know you did nothing to be there ... that is the case for eighty six men held at Guantanamo Bay prison facility. Neighbors turned in rivals, bounties were paid, and many times the wrong person was taken simply for wearing a certain brand of wristwatch in the days that followed the invasion of Afghanistan. The United States had no evidence of wrongdoing in many cases and has concluded no charges could be filed against these individuals. Some prisoners…

    28 Mar 2013 | 7:22 pm
    In an interview with Ketchikan's KRBD, Alaska's one and only Congressman, Republican Don Young, was able to include a racial slur in comments regarding the economy and employment. Congressman Young said, "My father had a ranch; we used to have 50-60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes," he said. "It takes two people to pick the same tomatoes now. It's all done by machine." Congressman Young is again under investigation by the House Ethics Committee. The fresh charges are that he failed to report gifts, misused campaign contributions and lied to investigators. The National Republican Party has recently…

    I spent most of Saturday hiking up and down the impossibly steep trails of Muir Woods National Monument. The expanse of ancient redwood groves and lush pine forests near San Francisco Bay was set aside in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt and named in honor of the conservationist chiefly responsible for the existence of our National Parks, John Muir, whose tireless campaigning in support of this continent's most scenic natural places inaugurated our government's role in preserving land for the enjoyment of the people, rather than for the exploitation of industry. The National Park Service…

    I blame Bill Nye. Several weeks ago, Nye thought it'd be a fine idea to debate a well-known creationist and founder of the Creation Museum, Ken Ham. On debate points and grasp of reality, Nye absolutely won the debate. But ultimately, Ham was the real winner. Not only did the debate send the loud but unspoken message that creationism was worthy of equal time with science but, it turns out, the debate was a huge money-maker for Ham's ridiculous museum -- inside which it's okay to instruct children that the universe is 6,000 years old and that humans rode on the backs of tamed, domesticated…

    I spend a lot of time debunking various myths, slogans and lies, and the undisputed champion of easily debunkable myths continues to be the Republican Party. But, until now, I don't think I've ever fully summarized the most glaring examples of GOP myths and lies. To be sure, this isn't to suggest that all Republicans are easily-misled simpletons. They're not. Yet their party consistently panders to its easily-misled simpleton base with the most egregiously dishonest ideas in American politics. I hasten to note that this list obviously doesn't cover everything and I'm sure you'll have some…

    The Republican battle against the Affordable Care Act just can't catch a break. First, the website is repaired and currently runs quite well. Then we find out that millions of uninsured Americans signed up for a plan, with millions more signed up through the law's Medicaid expansion. Then their Obamacare horror stories turn out to be bogus, and Speaker of the House John Boehner basically gave up on trying to repeal the law. And now, this. Before we get into it, the Congressional Budget Office is the closest thing we have to a neutral arbiter of facts and reality any more. With all sides…

Bartlet interrupts his remarks to the room and engages Jacobs directly. "I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination," Bartlet snarkily observes. Then he sets about completely decimating the chief…

  • Now Playing First Base for the Yankees

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Apr 2014 | 6:59 am
    The New York Yankees Opening Day roster included outfielders Carlos Beltran, Alfonso Soriano and Ichiro Suzuki who are 36, 38 and 40 years old respectively. Beltran and Soriano were productive hitters as recently as 2013, posting OPS+ of 128 for Beltran and 114 for Soriano. Suzuki was not as good last year, as his OPS+ was only 75. All three have also slowed down considerably in the field. Suzuki a 10-time gold glove award winner is not the defensive force he once was. Beltran, once a fleet center fielder now spends most of his time in one of the outfield corners or as designated hitter.

    Forty years ago Jerry Brown won a Democratic primary defeating runner up Joseph Alioto, the longtime mayor of San Francisco, soundly. Brown then went on to defeat State Controller Houston Flornoy by a margin of less than three percent. Nationally, 1974 was a Democratic year as the Republican brand was badly tarnished by the Watergate scandal, but in California the scion of the state's most famous Democratic political family was barely able to squeak by to victory. A lot has changed in California politics since then. After going Republican in every presidential election but one between 1952…

    The recent decision by the Supreme Court in the McCutcheon case is another ruling that ensures a greater influence of money in politics and ultimately weakens American democracy. Anybody who follows American politics, and particularly elections, with even moderate interest knows that money has always played a major role in our political system, and that in recent years, primarily because of the Citizens United case, it has grown to play a bigger role. Stories of massive independent expenditures, candidates spending most of their time raising money and building relationships with wealthy…
  • Commemorating Derek Jeter, Forgetting Bernie Willams

    Lincoln Mitchell
    7 Apr 2014 | 6:13 am
    The Derek Jeter retirement tour began in earnest last week in Houston as Jeter was presented with a pair of cowboy boots that only a Yankee fan, and probably not too many of them, could love. Jeter's retirement has led to a recognition that he is the last of the Yankee core four to retire. Jorge Posada retired a few years ago; and Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte retired at the end of last season. Every mention of a core four, the alleged true Yankees at the heart of their 1996-2009 run, is a reminder of how another great Yankee, Bernie Williams, has become increasingly overlooked over time.

Bidondi, an avid supporter of unrestricted gun ownership had been present at a press conference where Miller and other state legislators appeared. Miller's comments came after Bidondi had been harassing and berating participants at the event. Miller later apologized for using profanity. However, as more information about this…

    This week, the House of Representatives will vote on the Republican budget, presented by Republican Budget Chair Paul Ryan (as well as alternatives from the Democratic leadership, the Congressional Progressive Caucus "Better Off Budget," the right-wing Republican Study Group budget and Congressional Black Caucus). Republicans are reportedly lined up to vote for the Ryan budget, with the exception of a handful that think it is not extreme enough. The budget, of course, is dead on arrival in the Senate. So this is a message statement, a voluntary vote to let Americans know where Republicans…

    Today, the Congressional Progressive Caucus released its annual budget proposal -- the "Better Off Budget" (link not yet available). Budgets are numbing, grist for geeks, not citizens. This budget is no exception, detailing row after row of numeric projections. Produced in conjunction with the Economic Policy Institute, it is a technician's document, based on a sound economic model. But amid the numbers, budgets display our values, what we consider important, what we consider fair, how we address our future. Taken together, the blizzard of numbers provides a pointillist portrait of the…

    Remember the Republican promises about comprehensive tax reform? A flatter, simple tax code. Lower rates, paid for by closing loopholes. Well, never mind. For years, Republican candidates have pledged comprehensive tax reform that would offer lower rates paid for by closing loopholes. They've rejected any effort to close obscene dodges in the tax code arguing that had to be part of comprehensive tax reform. From the Romney campaign, the Ryan budgets, to endless stump speeches, they promised to lower rates paid for by what became known the "magic asterisk" -- details on what loopholes get…

    The Obama administration continues to push a fast track to nowhere. U.S. Trade Representative Michael B. Froman now has launched charm offensive, meeting with legislators, consumer, union and environmental groups to try to defuse growing opposition to fast track trade authority. Fat chance. Senate Majority leader Harry Reid says he has no intention of bringing fast track up on the Senate floor (at least before the election). House Speaker John Boehner couldn't even round up a Democratic co-sponsor for the bill. Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has voiced her opposition. Froman's strategy now is…

    In a State of the Union address that lasted more than an hour, President Obama challenged the Congress to raise the minimum wage, announced he would act immediately to issue an executive order lifting the lowest wages of government contract workers, and urged companies to give Americans a raise as well. This was far from the president's best speech, but as Republican CNN Analyst Alex Castellanos quipped in the best line of the night, "a speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex. The worst there ever was is still excellent." The president went through a long laundry list of proposals and…

    Is the United States a strong nation? There's a notion that it is, of course -- based mainly on the disruptive philosophical underpinnings upon which this country was established.

He struggled to understand this new concept welling up in his imagination. A full approximation of its significance was not something he was constitutionally able to achieve in the split-second that was afforded him by this new insight before its insistent demands for concrete realization compelled him -- with the…
  • Turns Out The Ohio Chrysler Plant Deemed Doomed In 2012 Is Not So Doomed After All

    Jason Linkins
    14 Mar 2014 | 2:10 pm
    The Toledo Blade's Tyrel Linkhorn reported Friday that a Chrysler plant in Toledo, Ohio, is having itself a pretty terrific year. Chrysler is planning on hiring "up to 1,000 part-time employees for the Toledo Assembly complex" in order to give their full-timers a break. Those full-timers have been "regularly working 60 hours a week," racing to keep up with "record demand for the Jeep Wrangler and the launch of the new Jeep Cherokee last year." Chrysler's already been through a round of hiring part-timers: 50 of the 380 they've brought in have had their positions converted to full-time. And…

    This week, the Congressional Budget Office has once again proven itself an able newsmaker, issuing a report scoring the economic impact of a proposal to raise the federal minimum wage from its current $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour. And once again, the CBO has produced a reality-based mixed bag. As HuffPost's Dave Jamieson reported, on the plus side, the increase would "raise the country's collective wages by $31 billion and lift perhaps 900,000 people out of poverty." The downside? The effort would also "likely eliminate an unknown number of jobs, ranging from a "very slight decrease" to…

  • Artyom Lukin: The Winner of the U.S.-Russia Conflict in Ukraine: China

    Artyom Lukin
    17 Apr 2014 | 9:20 am
    The leadership in Beijing must be secretly delighted watching the struggle between Russia and the West. The Ukraine mess can seriously poison Moscow's relations with Washington and Brussels for a long time to come, thus reducing their mutual ability to coordinate policies on the major issues in world politics. One such issue, perhaps the most important, concerns geopolitical risks associated with China's rise and its impact on the global economic and military balance. The Western push to "isolate" Russia may prove self-defeating. Rather than forcing Moscow to withdraw from Ukraine, it will…

Der 25-jährige Täter hatte vor sieben Jahren den damals 18-jährigen Sohn der Frau auf einer Straße in Rojan in Nordiran erstochen. Als sein Todesurteil am Dienstag vollstreckt worden sollte, begnadigte ihn die Mutter des Opfers quasi in letzter Minute.

Und schon muss die Bundesregierung herbe Kritik an dem Entwurf einstecken. Nach Auffassung des beim Kanzleramt angesiedelten Nationalen Normenkontrollrats hat Nahles nachlässig gearbeitet. Wie die "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" berichtet, fällt das Urteil des Gremiums zu den Plänen der Ministerin vernichtend aus.

The idea that he was a non-ideological moderate would have been laughed out of the room, even by the man himself. Moderate was an insult he applied to his leadership rival, that pink and pale McGuinty imitation Ernie Eves. As Ontario's Attorney General and Finance Minister, Flaherty was one of Harris's most consistent and reliable true believers, mocked (like Harris himself) for applying his tough-on-crime universal…

  • Artyom Lukin: The Winner of the U.S.-Russia Conflict in Ukraine: China

    Artyom Lukin
    17 Apr 2014 | 9:20 am
    The leadership in Beijing must be secretly delighted watching the struggle between Russia and the West. The Ukraine mess can seriously poison Moscow's relations with Washington and Brussels for a long time to come, thus reducing their mutual ability to coordinate policies on the major issues in world politics. One such issue, perhaps the most important, concerns geopolitical risks associated with China's rise and its impact on the global economic and military balance. The Western push to "isolate" Russia may prove self-defeating. Rather than forcing Moscow to withdraw from Ukraine, it will…

    Though mired in a thoroughly modern nation-state dispute with very real military consequences, both China and Japan also proudly draw their identities from continuous cultures that are not only thousands of years old, but also grounded in common civilizational roots. Perhaps if they peered far enough back to those common roots, they would not be so bent out of shape over who owns a few rocks in the ocean. Looked at differently, the islands very much resemble a dry zen garden where a series of mindfully positioned rocks rest harmoniously amid a meticulously raked gravel sea of nothingness. It…
