    A funny thing happened when Susan Cain published her best-selling book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, in 2012: it got introverts talking. Here's how she describes the reaction: I began to hear from people. And not just a few: I received hundreds of letters, emails, and messages. Then thousands. Then thousands upon thousands. It was like that scene in Harry Potter where a waterfall of letters to Harry cascades from the Dursley fireplace. The messages came from all over the world. They came from people aged nine to ninety, from mothers and fathers, from…

    Should our understanding of what the Constitution requires change over time? In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision concerning same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges, George Will and Matthew Franck have written thoughtful pieces that probe that fundamental question. Will endorses Justice Kennedy's assertion in Obergefell that "[t]he generations that wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment did not presume to know the extent of freedom in all of its dimensions, and so they entrusted to future generations a charter protecting the right of all persons to enjoy…

    The Democratic presidential field is shaping up into a one-on-one contest, at least at this early stage of the race. While Jim Webb, Martin O'Malley, and Lincoln Chafee are all now official candidates, none of them has managed to either distinguish themselves much or garner much of any voter support. Which leaves Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders as the only two candidates capable of pulling in double-digit polling numbers among Democratic voters. Well, to be absolutely accurate, there are three Democrats who routinely manage this feat, but so far Joe Biden hasn't indicated whether he'll run…

    3 Jul 2015 | 9:01 pm
    This week, while the U.S. celebrates its independence, the world watches a modern Greek tragedy unfold as Greece votes on austere bailout terms imposed by the country's creditors. However the vote goes, one thing is clear: The austerity that came with the two previous bailouts has utterly broken the Greek economy. GDP has gone down nearly 30 percent. A quarter of the country is unemployed, including half of its young people. Pensions have been slashed. The health budget has been cut by 40 percent. Suicides are up 36 percent since 2008. The Troika has authored a new Greek myth -- that you can…

    Kelly Bulkeley is a dream researcher and visiting scholar at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. His lifelong fascination with dreams began in his teenage years, when he experienced a string of nightmares that got him thinking about where dreams come from and what they mean. In answer to my questions, he shared his insights on the practice of dream incubation, the phrase "sleep on it," and connection between sleep and wakefulness. What is dream incubation? Dream incubation is the practice of creating optimum conditions for the experience of a meaningful dream that responds…

    This week, in the words of President Obama, our union became "a little more perfect." On Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in favor of Obamacare, preserving health insurance for at least 8 million people. The law, as the president said, is now "woven into the fabric of America." In dissent, Justice Scalia -- whose opinions increasingly read like he's shouting them from the Court's front porch at passersbys -- accused the majority of "jiggery-pokery" and "pure applesauce." The next day, the Court ruled 5-4 to make marriage legal nationwide for same sex couples. "They ask for equal dignity…

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:49 pm
    At a moment when Marriage Equality has become national law, albeit by the slimmest of margins, (and, thank you Justice Kennedy), LGBTQI folk and our allies would be moronic not to realize how harrowing is this decision for millions who don't share our belief in what is now deemed to be a Constitutionally guaranteed right. Revolted by their visualizations of what same-sex unions mean, and haunted by unreal notions, including that we will soon agitate for the freedom to marry dogs, they spin their wheels in an effort to comprehend what has happened to a country they thought they understood as…
  • Life Lessons From Being a TEDx Speaker

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:47 pm
    You may have had being a TED speaker on your "bucket list." It's been on mine for the past few years. So you can imagine my delight and excitement when I was asked to speak at TEDxFargo on July 23, 2015. While you may not be scheduled to talk at a TED event or even give a speech to your local school, church, or bridge club, I'm discovering that the lessons learned from this are far-reaching. And I haven't learned all the lessons yet, as we're more than a few days away from the actual event. But I think you'll be as surprised as I was by some of these lessons. Here are my insider secrets: 1.
  • Learning from Colorado's Contraception Success

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:45 pm
    There is a lot to celebrate about the stunning reduction in teen pregnancy and abortion rates as a result of Colorado's initiative to reduce unintended pregnancy described in the New York Times. Among other things, the initiative ensured that women in Colorado got access to the most effective forms of contraception, the new IUDs and implants. The Times called the initiative a "startling success," so much so that one wonders, why haven't we seen similar progress elsewhere? One big reason is that most health centers in the US do not offer their patients same day access to the most effective…
  • Greece Is Just The Beginning Of The Great Austerity Backlash

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:44 pm
    WASHINGTON -- The global politics of austerity seeped into the press room of the White House on Monday, the day after the Greeks voted overwhelmingly to reject a harsh bailout deal with Europe. Reporters pressed Josh Earnest, President Barack Obama’s spokesman, for details of what his boss thought of the vote and of the bailout deal, and whether he agreed with 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders that the latter was outrageous. Earnest answered with streams of polite words that added up to ... nothing. Obama was staying out of the issue, as he apparently had promised German…

  • The Rise and Fall of Mario Biaggi: Reminder of Why the Illegal Gratuities Statute Should be Revived

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:59 pm
    Many readers probably overlooked the recent obituary of disgraced former U.S. Rep. Mario Biaggi (D-NY). But the rise and fall of this former policeman who died at the age of 97 serves as an object lesson for aspiring politicians and makes a compelling case for resurrecting one of the most useful tools to fight political corruption--the illegal gratuities statute. While the term "illegal gratuities" may sound like a problem for restaurant service workers, the statute was once a key tool to fight political corruption. The federal illegal gratuities statute forbids a public official from…
  • One Year Of Legal Marijuana Generated $70 Million In Tax Revenue For Washington State

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:50 pm
    Washington state raked in more than $70 million in taxes during its first year of legal and regulated marijuana sales. The Washington State Liquor Control Board, the government body charged with overseeing the state's marijuana industry, reports that state pot shops sold more than $257 million worth of marijuana, generating more than $64 million through July 1 thanks to the state's marijuana excise tax. Add in local sales and other taxes, and Washington's state and local governments have collected more than $70 million, according to The Associated Press -- roughly doubling the state's…
  • U.S. At Odds With Germany Over Greek Debt Crisis

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:30 pm
    The ongoing Greek debt crisis is pitting the United States against its German ally, as the U.S. pushes for a solution that keeps Greece in the eurozone currency union. On Monday, the Obama administration renewed its calls for a resolution to Greece’s debt crisis, but in a notable change from recent months, focused its remarks on Greece’s creditors. "The task before the leaders of Europe remains the same," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said at a press briefing. "We have long indicated that it's our view that it's in their collective interest for these differences to be…

"I live in Detroit, and I know some people who were robbed by fake police officers," Wallace told MLive. "I was taught to find a well-lit area to pullover in."

  • The 'Double Truth' Revealed by Greek Crisis Shows Path Ahead Is a 'Two Speed' Europe

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:53 pm
    The great paradox of the present debacle over Greece in Europe is that Wolfgang Schäuble, the sober, wheelchair-bound austerian who is German finance minister, and Alexis Tsipras, the fiery, freewheeling populist leader of Syriza, are both right. Schäuble is right that an ever-closer union that tightly binds the economies of Europe through a common currency can only be founded on adherence by all members to agreed rules of supranational sovereignty. Tsipras is completely correct that Greece can never escape ever-more-spiraling-depression through abiding by those rules. More than the…
  • State Medicaid Programs and the Changing Dynamics of Pharmacy Benefits Management

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:33 pm
    When President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, millions of Americans received prescription drug coverage as part of their new health insurance. While this expanded coverage provided new access to prescription drugs for many Americans, it brought with it additional pharmacy requirements for both states and the federal government. Fast-forward to five years later and those ACA requirements are putting a heavy strain on state Medicaid programs as they work to manage pharmacy benefits for an increasingly diverse beneficiary population and an increasingly expensive array of…
  • No Thanks, America Ferrera -- A Chicana Response to 'Thank you, Donald Trump!'

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:23 pm
    Last week, amid the corporate fallout from GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump's racist remarks about Mexicans, actor America Ferrera penned a widely-shared thank-you letter to Donald Trump. Ferrera's tongue-in-cheek thank you to the bombastic real estate mogul is problematic for a variety of reasons. Ferrera deflects anti-Mexican remarks and turns the conversation into one about Latino voters. In announcing his presidential bid, Trump said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best. They're not sending you, they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're…

    Nearly three months after Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy, she remains the favored choice of most Democratic voters, a new HuffPost/YouGov poll finds. Fifty-four percent of voters who are Democrats or lean toward the party say they'd prefer to see Clinton as the Democratic nominee in 2016, while 30 percent would rather nominate someone else. In April, 56 percent had named her as their preferred nominee. Fifty-four percent of those voters in the new poll also say that they'd definitely vote for her, virtually unchanged from the 52 percent who previously said the same. Seventy-seven…

    One can't blame journalists in Egypt for being confused about what they can (and can't) cover and what language to use in their reports, given the widening chasm between authorities and countless news organizations. Local and foreign journalists could face prosecution and jail if they fall afoul of anti-terrorism legislation to be passed shortly that bars them from publishing news deviating from the official version of terrorist-related events. Louisa Loveluck, Cairo correspondent for Britain's The Telegraph, tweeted about a memo from the Egyptian Foreign Ministry saying it wasn't OK to use…

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:47 pm
    Kendrick Lamar’s opening performance of his new single “Alright” at this year’s annual BET Awards sparked some debate over at Fox News last week. During a June 29 episode of Fox News’ “The Five” co-hosts Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino, Eric Bolling, and Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera took aim at Lamar’s performance, saying that the song’s lyrics are “not helpful at all” in improving police relations in the black community. Rivera stated: “This is why I say that hip-hop has done more damage to young African-Americans than racism in recent years. This is exactly…

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:49 am
    BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — The reigning Miss Universe has refused to relinquish her crown despite a tide of condemnation following pageant owner Donald Trump's remarks on Mexican immigrants. Paulina Vega on Monday said she would continue doing the organization's social work and dismissed Trump's accusation that she is a hypocrite for condemning his recent comments but declining to step down as Miss Universe.

  • Don't Hold Your Breath For A Skinnier iPhone

    6 Jul 2015 | 10:55 am
    Phone makers seem to think that thinner is better. But Apple's next iPhone might not be skinnier than its current iterations. According to a document obtained by Engadget Japan, an upcoming "iPhone 6S" device is slated to be 7.1 millimeters thick -- precisely the depth of the iPhone 6 Plus, but thicker than the iPhone 6 by 0.2 millimeters. If the report is accurate -- Apple did not respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post and generally declines to weigh in on rumors -- you probably won't notice the difference. Credit cards are about 0.76 mm thick, which is more than three…

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:30 pm
    The ongoing Greek debt crisis is pitting the United States against its German ally, as the U.S. pushes for a solution that keeps Greece in the eurozone currency union. On Monday, the Obama administration renewed its calls for a resolution to Greece’s debt crisis, but in a notable change from recent months, focused its remarks on Greece’s creditors. "The task before the leaders of Europe remains the same," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said at a press briefing.

    The great paradox of the present debacle over Greece in Europe is that Wolfgang Schäuble, the sober, wheelchair-bound austerian who is German finance minister, and Alexis Tsipras, the fiery, freewheeling populist leader of Syriza, are both right. Schäuble is right that an ever-closer union that tightly binds the economies of Europe through a common currency can only be founded on adherence by all members to agreed rules of supranational sovereignty. Tsipras is completely correct that Greece can never escape ever-more-spiraling-depression through abiding by those rules. More than the…

  • 3 Steps to Stop Letting Yourself Off the Hook

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:32 pm
    If you tend to let yourself off the hook on certain things you know you need to do, you're in great company. Selective avoidance is a time-honored trait of the most successful people. I hear it from strong executives and emerging millennial leaders alike. It sounds something like, "I know I need to..." "... give that guy some candid feedback" "... trust my team more and stop trying to do it all myself" "... have that difficult conversation with the Board about their newest idea" If letting yourself repeatedly off the hook sounds familiar to you, here are three steps you can take that can…

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:09 pm
    The number of health insurers competing for your business almost certainly will decrease in coming months as the big for-profit firms merge or acquire each other. The companies insist that the results will enable them to operate more efficiently through the elimination of redundancies. But don't expect your premiums to go down when the dust settles. In fact, if the past is prologue, premiums will go up. The biggest beneficiaries will be the shareholders and a handful of top executives; they'll make tens of millions of dollars on the day the transactions become final. Among the losers--in…

    Do we really need another sci-fi TV show about humanoid beings you may fairly ask? For doesn't it seem like yesterday when Edward James Olmos acted in Battlestar Galactica before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Initially I was skeptical about Humans. Now I'm not. Humans is the product of a joint British and American (AMC) sci-fi series that had a recent U.S. launch on Sunday June 28, 2015, whereas U.K. viewers had an earlier launch.

Studies have shown that babies will actually stare at people who have more symmetrical faces than those without. Part of living is our ability to appreciate, want, lust over and love beautiful things. We work long and hard to earn money to afford pretty possessions, we get excited and nervous when meeting someone we consider especially attractive and we take photos to remember beautiful times. It's hard to imagine a life where beauty did not exist, and depending on your attitudes towards what beauty is,…

Because Jenner is a famous celebrity, athlete and financially very well off, does she really represent the typical young teenager adult, or child who is trapped within a body that they feel they really don't belong in? The Trans teen, child or adult is manifesting gender; they are not manifesting sexuality. Due to the deficiency in our language, the word sex is used to refer to both gender identity and the carnal act…

(or perhaps you have already gone blonde to hide the grays). I am really writing from the perspective of a color analysis professional when I use the words "optimal hair color palette". What I…

  • Just FYI, Russell Wilson And Ciara Aren't Having Sex

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:26 pm
    We haven't heard that much about Russell Wilson and Ciara's relationship, until now.  The pair, who made their public debut as a couple back in April as they walked the red carpet at the White House Correspondents' Dinner together, were rumored to have ended their romance as soon as it started. But it turns out that's not the case. In a Q&A with San Diego pastor Miles McPherson at The Rock Church on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback got really, really candid about the couple's sex life, or lack therof.  "He has anointed both of us and I know that he's…
  • Bill Cosby Admitted To Drugging Women In 2005 Deposition

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:36 pm
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby admitted in 2005 that he got quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and that he gave the sedative to at least one woman and "other people," according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press. That woman and a second woman testified in the same case that they knowingly took quaaludes from him, according to the unsealed documents. The AP had gone to court to compel the release of the documents from the deposition in a sexual abuse lawsuit filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand…
  • How One 14-Year-Old's Dream To Help Underprivileged Girls Became A National Success

    6 Jul 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Most 14-year-olds are busy studying for biology tests, trying out for school sports teams and musical productions, and searching for spare time to sleep. Not Allyson Ahlstrom. At age 14, she started a non-profit organization, and nearly six years later, Threads for Teens is a nationally-recognized organization doing incredible work. The organization's mission statement explains that it aims to inspire confidence in young women by providing underprivileged teen girls with the opportunity to pick out a new outfit or two from the back of the company's mobile boutique, which is run out of the…
  • The Power Of Seeing Women Masturbate On TV

    6 Jul 2015 | 1:14 pm
    The fifth episode of Lifetime's "UnREAL" opens with a shot of protagonist and reality TV producer Rachel (played by Shiri Appleby) masturbating with a vibrator in the back of a van. "Chivalry is not dead," says the male host of fictional dating show "Everlasting," as Rachel, laying under a wool furniture blanket, tries to get off to some porn on her iPhone. The scene isn't "sexy" -- there's no lingerie, no tousled sheets, no moaning, no male-gazey camera shots. While the fantasy of a "Bachelor"-like dating world is being created outside of the production van, the audience watches the…

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:05 pm
    Robert Dollwet says it's his cat's confidence that sets her apart. We think it might be the fact that Didga the cat skateboards, swims, surfs -- sometimes on top of dogs -- and does gymnastics on command. She even poops in a toilet. Then flushes. OK, he'll admit it: Didga is "most likely the most talented cat in the world," says Dollwet, with more than a little fatherly pride.

Bob the dog is a golden retriever who lives in Brazil and chills with multiple birds and one fat little hamster. As of Monday, he has over 53,000 followers on Instagram and 12,000 likes on his Facebook page. But like any celebrity, a star needs a squad, and Bob’s crew rolls deep.

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:06 pm
    New York City has invested considerably to protect lands surrounding its upstate reservoirs to secure its drinking water supply--with great results. Now Mayor Bill de Blasio has a unique opportunity to provide city residents with significant health, economic and quality-of-life benefits by leveraging ongoing efforts to secure the supply of fresh, local food by conserving farmland within its regional "foodshed." In 2013 Scenic Hudson, the environmental organization and land trust based in New York's Hudson River Valley, released a Foodshed Conservation Plan. It provides an innovative blueprint…

    Cross-Posted from DeSmogBlog On Thursday, July 3 on the eve of a long Fourth of July holiday weekend, Canadian pipeline company giant Enbridge landed a sweetheart deal: a provision in the 2015 Wisconsin Budget that will serve to expedite permitting for its controversial proposed Line 61 tar sands pipeline expansion project. Line 61 cuts diagonally across Wisconsin and goes into north-central Illinois, beginning in Superior, Wisconsin and terminating in Flanagan, Illinois. The Wisconsin Gazette refers to the pipeline as the "XXL" pipeline because it is bigger in size and has higher carrying…

    Handicraft exchange between the Suruí and the Yawanawa communities The scene is idyllic: Children scamper across a clearing in a forest, a boy swings a baby into the air, nuzzling the child's cheek. A girl windmills her arms as she skips to a nearby hammock hung between two enormous trees. A group of women work steadily at making jewelry, staying cool in the shade of one family's dwelling. The task demands great concentration, as they pound tiny shells into shiny beads, using very large and very sharp knives. It's a slice of a day in the life of the Paiter-Suruí, a group of indigenous…

    6 Jul 2015 | 1:45 pm
    WildCare's Wildlife Hospital treats nearly 4,000 ill, injured and orphaned wild animal patients from over 200 species every year. This is one patient's story. It was around 7:00 pm and this young badger's rescuers saw her in the road, huddled near the body of her dead mother. The young animal was lethargic and disoriented. Not sure how to deal with a badger, which can be quite intimidating, even when small, the badger's rescuers called WildCare's Hotline for help. Our Hotline operator walked them through safely containing the badger in a carrier, and instructed them to call the local Humane…
  • Steady as She Goes: Lessons for the Clean Power Plan From the Supreme Court's Mercury and Healthcare Decisions

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:32 am
    Everyone with a stake in President Obama's Clean Power Plan waited anxiously last month for the Supreme Court's decisions in the mercury and healthcare cases, Michigan v. EPA and King v. Burwell. What would those cases tell us about prospects for EPA's carbon pollution standards? The two decisions, taken together, tell us that the Clean Power Plan's prospects are, in fact, pretty good. Here are three reasons why: 1. The mercury setback is temporary and won't interfere with the Clean Power Plan. Considering the immediate press coverage of the Michigan case, one could be forgiven for thinking…

  • In Show Of Strength Against Poaching, Mozambique Burns Illicit Rhino Horn And Elephant Ivory

    6 Jul 2015 | 12:26 pm
    Mozambique doesn't have any living rhinos left, but the country is still a hub for the illicit, and highly lucrative, trade in endangered animal parts. In an increasingly common show of force against poachers, wildlife officials destroyed more than 425 pounds of rhino horn and two tons of elephant ivory on Monday. The cache was seized in Maputo, Mozambique's capital, earlier this year in what The Guardian calls the biggest haul of rhino horn ever. The goods represent more than 200 animals that were killed for their horns and tusks, according to Agence France-Presse. Based on conservative…

Farah Brook, the comedian who went around Grand Central Station trying to kiss total strangers, is back with a new video, this time showcasing some very public displays of affection to a lot of unsuspecting New Yorkers. In honor of International Kissing Day, Brook and a guy friend innocently asked total strangers to take a picture of them. The couple then proceeded to get extremely affectionate while the stranger looked on, unsure of what to do next. Eventually, some strangers just simply walk away, awkwardly (and hilariously) laying the camera down on the…

  • During budget shutdown, Illinois comptroller says only a court order can authorize payments

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:25 am
    Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Comptroller Leslie Geissler Munger want a Cook County judge to make clear what can and can't be paid by the state comptroller's office without a state budget in place. Madigan filed a motion in Cook County Circuit Court that seeks a court order authorizing the comptroller's office to, among other things, issue paychecks to state employees. "The Illinois Constitution clearly states that without a budget, the state's authority to fund government operations and services is severely limited.

A separate Senate bill did pass with no support from Republicans. The Illinois News Network's Mark Fitton explained: The state Senate on Thursday passed a measure to provide about $2.2 billion for "essential services" for the month of July, but that bill apparently will not see action in the Illinois House until next week at the earliest.

    Two of the country's most politically savvy and competitive cities are now in a tight race to end veteran homelessness by the end of the year. In the nation's capital, a small group of advocates is shaking things up on the ground and energizing city decision makers and service providers to get to the finish line on time. Before Chicago, that is. Last week, local and national leaders gathered at an event at the Mount Pleasant Public Library sponsored by Veterans Now DC, a local veteran advocacy group. All signs point to the fact that D.C. has the resources to do the job, but the push will be…

    If U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) emerges as the 2016 Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate in Illinois, incumbent Republican Mark Kirk faces an enormous challenge holding onto his seat, a new poll suggests. A June 23 survey of 598 likely 2016 Illinois voters commissioned by The Illinois Observer's e-newsletter, The Insider, found that Duckworth leads Kirk 43.8-27.3% or 16.5 points. Wow. The poll, conducted by Chicago-based Ogden & Fry, had a significant 28.9% of voters undecided. The survey had a margin of error of +/- 4.09%. Kirk's weakness vis-à-vis Duckworth seems to be explained by a…

    The last time an Illinois governor interfered with pay for members of the General Assembly, House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton sued and won. That was in the summer of 2013, when then-Gov. Pat Quinn suspended all pay for lawmakers until they delivered him a pension reform bill to sign. Quinn lost in court when the judge ruled, to no one's surprise, that Illinois law requires any changes to lawmakers' pay to be executed by statute. The law is a good one and is designed to prevent the kind of retaliatory pay action that Quinn attempted. On Wednesday, as thousands…

Tsipras is completely correct that Greece can never escape ever-more-spiraling-depression through abiding by those rules. More than the…

Egypt's cabinet on Sunday drafted a new law that, if approved by President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, could criminalize "reporting false information on terrorist attacks that contradicts official statements," according to Egyptian media. At a Saturday press briefing, the Foreign Ministry provided journalists with a list of words it should be using to describe "terrorist groups." The list included: assassins, slayers, eradicators and…

  • Girl And Guy Prank Complete Strangers With Some Extreme PDA

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:19 pm
    Definitely putting the P in PDA. Farah Brook, the comedian who went around Grand Central Station trying to kiss total strangers, is back with a new video, this time showcasing some very public displays of affection to a lot of unsuspecting New Yorkers. In honor of International Kissing Day, Brook and a guy friend innocently asked total strangers to take a picture of them. The couple then proceeded to get extremely affectionate while the stranger looked on, unsure of what to do next. Eventually, some strangers just simply walk away, awkwardly (and hilariously) laying the camera down on the…
  • Amy Schumer: 'Sex Is Just Explained Incorrectly To Us'

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:19 pm
    Amy Schumer tells it like it is. In a CBS News profile on July 5, Schumer broke down the problem with the way young men and women are taught about sex. "Sex is just explained incorrectly to us," she said. "It's like everything -- magazines, sitcoms. Men 'love' sex, and women just deal with it." The comedian, whose film "Trainwreck" comes out on July 17, has never been shy about identifying as a feminist and filtering her ideas about sex through a feminist lens. "It's so crazy that people don't identify as feminists," Schumer told CBS. "I think it's only people that don't know the definition."…
  • Surfing, Skateboarding Cat Proves Our Feline Friends Make Awesome Adventure Buddies

    6 Jul 2015 | 3:05 pm
    Robert Dollwet says it's his cat's confidence that sets her apart. We think it might be the fact that Didga the cat skateboards, swims, surfs -- sometimes on top of dogs -- and does gymnastics on command. She even poops in a toilet. Then flushes. OK, he'll admit it: Didga is "most likely the most talented cat in the world," says Dollwet, with more than a little fatherly pride. You can watch this cat's impressive range of skills in this spectacularly inspiring video Dollwet recently put together: Dollwet is a former Hollywood dog trainer who moved to Australia seven years ago, for family…
  • Bill Cosby Admitted To Drugging Women In 2005 Deposition

    6 Jul 2015 | 2:36 pm
    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby admitted in 2005 that he got quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and that he gave the sedative to at least one woman and "other people," according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press. That woman and a second woman testified in the same case that they knowingly took quaaludes from him, according to the unsealed documents. The AP had gone to court to compel the release of the documents from the deposition in a sexual abuse lawsuit filed by former Temple University employee Andrea Constand…

  • I'm With Stupid: Anticipating Reactions to Reactions to Reactions

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:43 am
    I know that on occasion this column can skew left in its political leanings, and in the past I may have offended a few people on the right side (looking at you, gun lobby). But I believe in fair play, so this week, just because the opportunity has presented itself, I'm going to try to be an equal-opportunity offender and outrage the left and the right simultaneously. I know that sounds like a radical idea, but I feel I'm up for the challenge. We'll start with the left and a law that could only have been passed in a very blue state, but before we do, I'd like to make one thing perfectly clear:…
  • Google, I Hardly Knew Ye

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:35 am
    Google thinks it's so great. That it's the best search engine in the world. Then why can it not answer any of my simplest, most pressing questions? Here's a perfect example. I just keyed in: "Does this outfit make me look fat?" What do I get back? A link to an animated YouTube video in which Batman is nervously asking Boy Wonder that question. Irrelevant, Google. And it's a no brainer anyway. We all know the Batman needs to stick to basic black in his cape and body suit combos. Much more forgiving. Next I typed in: "Why did Charlie Pierkowski dump Maureen Stone in 10th grade?" (They were such…
  • Politeness I'd Truly Like to See

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:09 am
    Buzzfeed's "Whatever Happened To These 6 Polite Gestures?" was all over Facebook recently. It prompted all kinds of nostalgia for things like thank you notes--as if climate change would end when people bought stationary and picked up pens again. I send email thank you notes, and if I'm really grateful, send them via Jacquie Lawson who does awesome animated cards. They're more beautiful than anything I could buy, and my handwriting has always been atrocious anyway. It's worse now that I've had reconstructive surgery on my right hand. Trust me, you don't want a thank you note from me. You will…

    Remember when you were 14 and your mom made you stop saying "like" 127 times a day? Fine, we'll admit it: She was right.

  • Fox News Is No Joke. It's Pure Poison

    Bill Mann
    29 Jun 2015 | 10:39 am
    Bill O'Reilly was really steamed. Poooor baby. What got the churlish O'Reilly mad were post-church-shooting statements by South Carolina Rep. Todd Rutherford that Fox News was regularly dispensing the kind of hate speech that led to the church shooting. Rutherford's comments deserved a lot more attention. A whole lot more. Only the crying need for gun control has been more egregiously overlooked since the Charleston tragedy. Let us speak plainly here. Fox has been providing a megaphone for hatemongers for years. It's made it OK to hold crackpot, hateful ideas. Simply put, Fox dispenses…
  • Colbert as Colbert? It Might Not Be So Bad

    Bill Mann

    Stephen Colbert... as himself? It might not be the worst thing in the world -- no matter what many of us thought at first. The initial reports confirming that the preternaturally talented Comedy Central host would be taking over David Letterman's show -- something I strongly suspected might happen but that surprised many -- also included a disheartening assurance from a top CBS exec that Colbert would do The Late Show as himself, not as his bloviating, Bill O'Reilly-esque character. "Terrible news," I thought initially. But is it? Two weeks later it seems that it might not be, for several…

Believe me, it's a blessed relief not to have to see John Boehner, Tenn. Cong. Marsha "Michele Bachmann Wannabe" Blackburn, Rep. Louie "Gomer" Gohmert, or any of the 40 or so Tea Party numskulls from far-right Congressional districts in places like Indiana and Georgia who are currently holding millions of Americans hostage during their prolonged temper tantrum.

  • David Brodeur: A Key Player in Lively, Offbeat Quebec Music Scene

    Bill Mann
    17 Sep 2013 | 1:54 pm
    Quebec has always been an oddball music market. Not only does it have its own stars (Robert Charlebois, Michel Pagliaro, Nanette Workman), but some of the foreign groups and acts that never make it anywhere else are supervedettes (stars) in La Belle Province. British groups like Supertramp, Strawbs and individudual artists, like Texas warbler Shawn Phillips. All of them owe their Quebec success to David Brodeur, a music aficionado with an encyclopedic knowledge of rock and soul who died this week in Montreal at 68 after years of health problems. Brodeur was an original, a guy with a blueblood…

    There's nothing better than a summertime trip to the beach in Vancouver to remind one of the major differences in civility between the U.S. and Canada today. I took in one of Vancouver's big summertime Celebration of Light fireworks shows up in B.C. recently. The fireworks were pretty amazing. Even more amazing was the difference in public behavior there and at a beach, say, in Southern California. Over 300,000 spectators had gathered, packing the shores and beaches of English Bay near downtown Vancouver to watch the fireworks finale. The parking lots were overflowing out at Spanish Banks…

    Bonnie Fuller
    19 Jun 2015 | 1:07 pm
    Madonna, you are so smart to keep creating the music and videos that excite you. The ageist critics who tell you to stop dancing and looking hot at 56 are the real old folks, no matter what their ages. Madonna, the dissers who are trying to define or judge you for your age -- 56 -- are silly and small-minded. And in many cases, sexist! I'll throw that in for good measure, because it's true. You just released what is arguably the hottest, funnest and most compelling video of your life for your single, "Bitch I'm Madonna", with guest appearances by Beyonce, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West,…
  • Game Of Thrones: Why the Show's Shocking Finale Death Is a Disaster

    15 Jun 2015 | 2:35 pm
    Say it isn't so. Of all the deaths 'Game of Thrones' has inflicted on us since the show started, this one was the worst. Here's why. [WARNING: Major spoilers ahead!] Game of Thrones fans are mad as hell and we aren't going to take it -- after a season full of twist, turns and terrifying deaths, the fifth season finale hit fans where it hurt with perhaps the most gut wrenching death yet. And if this one sticks, if this character truly met their ultimate end in the season finale, then the GoT creators have made a catastrophic mistake. Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) should NOT have been killed off.

    Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian all deserve kudos for sounding off loudly, clearly and positively about women's sexuality. They each make different points -- all of them great. Miley Cyrus didn't just pose naked on the cover and inside the pages of the new issue of Paper magazine. She also did something far more astounding. Miley Cyrus spoke out about her own sexuality. She revealed that she is bisexual and even beyond that -- that she is very comfortable with enjoying her own sexuality. "I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn't involve an animal…
  • Game of Thrones Episode 9: Stannis and Melisandre Should Burn in Hell

    Bonnie Fuller
    8 Jun 2015 | 10:29 am
    In the most shocking departure from the books yet, Shireen gets sacrificed in a vile move that now proves Stannis Baratheon is totally unworthy to sit on the Iron Throne. In a season of startling departures from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, Princess Shireen's depraved murder at the hands of her father, Stannis Baratheon, was the most disturbing. Really, disturbing doesn't even begin to describe the horror of watching a power-hungry father and his weak wife, Selyse, send their bright, gentle little girl to be burned alive at the stake. And all in the name of some hocus…

    For a too brief time in my life, I got to spend time with Peter Pan. Not just any Peter Pan, either. Disney's Peter Pan, arguably the best known iteration of the classic fairy tale. We'll circle back to this presently. Let's talk about modern movies. Stick with me here. You've probably seen more than a few behind-the-scenes featurettes showing actors in skin-tight lycra suits with what appear to be ping-pong balls glued all over their bodies. The most famous of these oddly-dressed actors is probably Andy Serkis who, in addition to traditional roles, is Hollywood's premiere "motion capture…
  • GOP Candidate Ben Carson Seriously Thinks There's Something Called 'Judicial Law'

    Bob Cesca
    11 May 2015 | 5:48 pm
    One of the lasting legacies of the George W. Bush presidency is that it severely lowered the bar on what we expect the president to know. Bush and mainly his primary handler, Karl Rove, made it generally acceptable for the chief executive to be no smarter than the great unwashed he's governing. Worldly, smart people like John Kerry were caricatured as being effete dandies just because they could speak French or, you know, count higher than six. Bush and Rove, on the other hand, glamorized being a dilettante. While we ought to demand that our presidents be significantly smarter than we are,…
  • The Five Nearly Impossible Challenges for Bernie Sanders and His Supporters

    Bob Cesca
    7 May 2015 | 7:58 am
    Based strictly upon his agenda, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) would be a groundbreaking president, and in a general vote-your-conscience sense, he's definitely worthy of support from the activist left. Here are just a few of the reasons why: he supports single-payer health care; he supports higher tax rates on the wealthiest one percent, especially when it comes to paying for wars; he'd prioritize global warming as the number one crisis of our time; and he's arguably the most vocal supporter of the middle class since FDR. In many ways, Sanders is a dream candidate... ...On paper. This is the big…

    Arguably the most ludicrous book to emerge during the George W. Bush era was hilariously titled, Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning, by National Review Online editor-at-large Jonah Goldberg. Yes, somehow Goldberg awkwardly contorted the English language to shoehorn a square liberal peg into a round fascism hole and catapult this hooey to number one on The New York Times bestseller list, making it really difficult to decide which was more idiotic: the book's title or the legion of doofuses who bought it.

Rose's efforts to finally make it to the Hall of Fame had been getting some traction earlier in the year, but that has changed now. The new information regarding Pete Rose is only of the ethics scandals that has hit baseball in the last few weeks.

    The story is familiar. A Muslim population that holds little political power is being mistreated, denied their rights and pushed out of land where their families have lived for generations. This time it is happening in a remote corner of a distant country where few Westerners have traveled. The treatment of the Rohingya minority in Myanmar is, however, a major human rights violation. A Human Rights watch report from 2013 states that, "The criminal acts committed against the Rohingya and Kaman Muslim communities in Arakan State beginning in June 2012 amount to crimes against humanity carried…
  • Draft Position and Tracking of Pitchers

    Baseball's amateur draft was completed this week. Much of the focus of the attention has, rightly, been on the first few players drafted like Dansby Swanson who was chosen first in the country by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The draft, however, lasts 40 rounds. The players chosen in the final rounds are not all seen as top prospects, but are often drafted for the simple reason that the big league teams need to fill several minor league rosters with decent players. Players drafted in the late rounds rarely become impact players, but there are exceptions. Lorenzo Cain was taken by the Royals in…

    Following their extraordinary 2014 World Series Victory, the San Francisco Giants had a rough offseason. They lost two of their top power hitters, Pablo Sandoval and Michael Morse, to free agency, and early in spring training one of their remaining home run threats from 2014, Hunter Pence, broke his arm and had to miss most of the first part of the season. Many Giants fans shrugged this off, noting that 2015 is an odd numbered year and therefore not one in which the team is expected to do much. The Giants, after all, had won the World Series in each of the last three even numbered years, but…

  • Trans-Pacific Partnership: Obama Sides With the Wrong People for the Wrong Reasons at the Wrong Time

    Joseph A. Palermo
    25 Jun 2015 | 1:34 pm
    By siding with the Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in passing "fast-track" trade authority as a step toward signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), President Barack Obama triangulated against labor unions, environmentalists, consumer activists, and the base of his party. The 60-38 vote in the Senate to give the president (and the next president) more executive power to negotiate trade agreements, which garnered the support of thirteen Democratic Senators, followed months of bitter in-fighting among Democrats. President Obama not only expended his own "political…

    16 Jun 2015 | 7:14 am
    John Ellis Bush has formally announced his 2016 campaign to bring another Bush to the White House. He's banking on the amnesia of the American people, hoping we've already forgotten his brother's catastrophic presidency. Now that the Republican party's Great Establishment Hope has entered the crowded field of candidates it raises the question: What, exactly, are Bush and the other GOP presidential contenders actually going to "debate?" All of them (including Bush) agree on handing over the largest share possible of the country's resources and public assets to private corporations and banks.

    Nothing illustrates better the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican war hawks who call themselves presidential candidates than their attempts to whitewash the history of how this nation went to war in Iraq. John Ellis "Jeb" Bush stood by his brother's side while he demolished a nation of 28 million people in the heart of the Arab world he knew nothing about. Out on the stump, Jeb and other GOP candidates try to shift responsibility for the worst U.S. foreign policy disaster since the Vietnam War from George W. to President Barack Obama. Jeb and Co. claim that everything was…

    29 Apr 2015 | 12:23 pm
    We hear politicians across the ideological spectrum talking about the "problem" of wealth and income inequality in America, yet few offer any concrete solutions. The rioting in Baltimore shows that inequality is not an abstraction or a talking point, but a real sociological phenomenon that is causing real suffering and instability in African-American communities across the country. Police brutality in Ferguson or Baltimore or Oakland represents the failure to bring real economic reforms that might have a chance of ameliorating the suffering of the poor and unemployed. Yet the political will…
  • Judith Miller Clings to Her Own Stubborn Myths

    7 Apr 2015 | 9:33 am
    Judith Miller recently popped out of the Fox News bubble for a quick jaunt to the Wall Street Journal editorial page, the home base for John Bolton, Max Boot, and other neo-con hawks, to give her forthcoming book a little free advertising. In the process she attempts to whitewash her role as an influential pro-war voice in the lead-up to the Iraq War. Her April 3, 2015 statement predictably follows the same party line as Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Tony Blair, and George W. Bush. She strongly defends herself against those who claim her reportage in the run-up to the war consciously fanned…

    6 Jul 2015 | 1:25 pm
    Europa bebt. Die Griechen haben sich gegen die Rettungspolitik der Gläubiger gestellt. Doch dabei ging es nur auf den ersten Blick um eine aktuelle politische Frage. In Wirklichkeit war es ein Votum der griechischen Jugendlichen gegen Europa, besser gesagt: Gegen die europäische Idee, wie die Jüngeren sie gerade erleben. Denn mit Europa verbinden viele von ihnen nicht mehr Verheißung, sondern Gefahr, nicht mehr Aufbruch, sondern Unsicherheit. In vielen südeuropäischen Ländern gehören die Jüngeren zur ersten Generation seit Jahrzehnten, der es nicht mehr besser geht als ihren Eltern.

Sie haben Lehrpläne entrümpelt, Schuljahrgänge gestrichen und wieder eingeführt und Ganztagsschulen eingerichtet. Über den Erfolg dieser Maßnahmen lässt sich streiten. Kein Wunder, ihr Nutzen war schon heftig umstritten, bevor sie überhaupt ergriffen wurden. Der Nutzen einer weiteren Maßnahme ist weit weniger umstritten: der eines späteren Schulbeginns.

  • Griechenland-Krise: Wenn Europa zerbricht, dann ist DAS der Grund

    6 Jul 2015 | 1:25 pm
    Europa bebt. Die Griechen haben sich gegen die Rettungspolitik der Gläubiger gestellt. Doch dabei ging es nur auf den ersten Blick um eine aktuelle politische Frage. In Wirklichkeit war es ein Votum der griechischen Jugendlichen gegen Europa, besser gesagt: Gegen die europäische Idee, wie die Jüngeren sie gerade erleben. Denn mit Europa verbinden viele von ihnen nicht mehr Verheißung, sondern Gefahr, nicht mehr Aufbruch, sondern Unsicherheit. In vielen südeuropäischen Ländern gehören die Jüngeren zur ersten Generation seit Jahrzehnten, der es nicht mehr besser geht als ihren Eltern.

    Was haben Bildungspolitiker nicht alles versucht, damit die deutschen Schüler in internationalen Vergleichen endlich besser abschneiden? Sie haben Lehrpläne entrümpelt, Schuljahrgänge gestrichen und wieder eingeführt und Ganztagsschulen eingerichtet. Über den Erfolg dieser Maßnahmen lässt sich streiten. Kein Wunder, ihr Nutzen war schon heftig umstritten, bevor sie überhaupt ergriffen wurden. Der Nutzen einer weiteren Maßnahme ist weit weniger umstritten: der eines späteren Schulbeginns.

  • Obergefell v. Hodges and the Meaning of Liberty

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:54 pm
    Should our understanding of what the Constitution requires change over time? In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision concerning same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges, George Will and Matthew Franck have written thoughtful pieces that probe that fundamental question. Will endorses Justice Kennedy's assertion in Obergefell that "[t]he generations that wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment did not presume to know the extent of freedom in all of its dimensions, and so they entrusted to future generations a charter protecting the right of all persons to enjoy…

    At a moment when Marriage Equality has become national law, albeit by the slimmest of margins, (and, thank you Justice Kennedy), LGBTQI folk and our allies would be moronic not to realize how harrowing is this decision for millions who don't share our belief in what is now deemed to be a Constitutionally guaranteed right. Revolted by their visualizations of what same-sex unions mean, and haunted by unreal notions, including that we will soon agitate for the freedom to marry dogs, they spin their wheels in an effort to comprehend what has happened to a country they thought they understood as…

    You may have had being a TED speaker on your "bucket list." It's been on mine for the past few years. So you can imagine my delight and excitement when I was asked to speak at TEDxFargo on July 23, 2015. While you may not be scheduled to talk at a TED event or even give a speech to your local school, church, or bridge club, I'm discovering that the lessons learned from this are far-reaching. And I haven't learned all the lessons yet, as we're more than a few days away from the actual event. But I think you'll be as surprised as I was by some of these lessons. Here are my insider secrets: 1.
  • Learning from Colorado's Contraception Success

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:45 pm
    There is a lot to celebrate about the stunning reduction in teen pregnancy and abortion rates as a result of Colorado's initiative to reduce unintended pregnancy described in the New York Times. Among other things, the initiative ensured that women in Colorado got access to the most effective forms of contraception, the new IUDs and implants. The Times called the initiative a "startling success," so much so that one wonders, why haven't we seen similar progress elsewhere? One big reason is that most health centers in the US do not offer their patients same day access to the most effective…
  • Greece Is Just The Beginning Of The Great Austerity Backlash

    6 Jul 2015 | 4:44 pm
    WASHINGTON -- The global politics of austerity seeped into the press room of the White House on Monday, the day after the Greeks voted overwhelmingly to reject a harsh bailout deal with Europe. Reporters pressed Josh Earnest, President Barack Obama’s spokesman, for details of what his boss thought of the vote and of the bailout deal, and whether he agreed with 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders that the latter was outrageous. Earnest answered with streams of polite words that added up to ... nothing. Obama was staying out of the issue, as he apparently had promised German…

En una entrevista en Telecinco y ante la pregunta de si se podía asegurar que esos comicios serían en el último mes del año ha respondido con un "no" rotundo.

De hecho, la partida entre Tsipras y Europa parece que no ha hecho más que empezar. Dimisiones, presiones, caras largas y más corralito para cerrar una jornada frenética que no ha parado de dejar noticias. La sorpresa Tras la rotunda victoria del 'no' en el referéndum, el ministro griego de Finanzas, Yanis Varoufakis, sorprendía a todos anunciando su dimisión para facilitar las negociaciones de una nueva propuesta griega de cara a renovar su ayuda financiera.

Otros se paraban ante los quioscos a leer las portadas de los periódicos y muchos se dirigían a su trabajo como cualquier día normal.
