    30 Rock on Huffington Post

    For seven years NBC tried to tell everyone that 30 Rock was a hit. It was not. Critics enjoyed it but no one was rabidly watching it like Modern Family. The Blacklist is the ONLY holdover for new shows from last season and that is only good because James Spader is truly "the man".

    This week proved Ebola panic spreads much, much faster than the disease itself -- with the former needing only contact with cable news, talk radio, social media, or political ads to proliferate. But with President Obama appointing an Ebola czar on Friday, we can question our preparedness without legitimizing the fear-mongering. As Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, told HuffPost's Sam Stein, without a "10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would've gone through clinical trials and would have been ready."…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Frank Mankiewicz, the press secretary who went before television cameras to announce the death of Sen. Robert F.

    Ebola panic is sweeping the nation, with schools closing and people barricading themselves at home, even if they're thousands of miles away from one of the three individuals who have contracted virus on U.S. soil. Politicians, always eager to take advantage of voters' fears, are jumping on the bandwagon hoping it will pay off at the ballot box. Republican Senate candidates Tom Tillis (NC) and David Perdue (GA) blame President Obama -- and by reflection their Democratic opponents -- for the crisis in Africa. In Minnesota Republican Mike McFadden has revamped his stump speech to capitalize on…

    Quando estava dando os últimos retoques em "A Terceira Medida do Sucesso", visitei o Brasil para o lançamento do Brasil Post, em parceria com o Grupo Abril. Era uma época que tinha tudo para ser muito estressante - um fluxo constante de prazos da editora e a pressão extra de seguir meus próprios conselhos de dormir o suficiente todas as noites -, mas me lembraram de que o Brasil é um país muito em sintonia com os temas sobre os quais estava escrevendo. Muita tinta e muitos pixels costumam ser dedicados à ascensão do país…

    This week the world was introduced to a glorious -- if unlikely -- new couple, united for all time by the matchmakers at the Norwegian Nobel Committee: Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, recipients of this year's Nobel Peace Prize. She's a 17-year-old Pakistani Muslim; he's a 60-year-old Indian Hindu. Together they're being honored for leading the fight for children's rights -- and against extremism -- worldwide. Malala, of course, is already well-known. After being shot by the Taliban in 2012 for trying to educate herself, she courageously spoke up even louder. "They can only shoot a…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is offering federal support to New York as it responds to its first Ebola case. Obama spoke Thursday night to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The White House says some officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were already on the ground, with another team expected to have arrived late Thursday.

    NEW YORK (AP) — An emergency room doctor who recently returned to the city after treating Ebola patients in West Africa has tested positive for the virus, becoming the first case in the city and the fourth in the nation. Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday urged residents not to be alarmed by the doctor's Ebola diagnosis, even as they described him riding the subway, taking a cab and bowling. De Blasio said all city officials followed "clear and strong" protocols in their handling and treatment of him. "We want to state at the outset that New Yorkers have no reason to be…

Don Young's (R-Alaska) insensitive comments during a school assembly Tuesday and thinks the congressman’s apology was insincere. Zachary Grier, 17, a senior at Wasilla High School, asked Young during the assembly why he still opposed same-sex marriage, even after a court struck down Alaska's ban on same-sex unions. Young responded by asking Grier, “What do you get when you have two bulls having sex?” When Grier answered that he didn’t know, Young told him: “A whole lot of bull.” Grier said…

    The current Ebola crisis has revealed the power of conspiracy theories and how they can prevent meaningful engagement in crisis situations. A major Liberian newspaper continues to churn out bizarre conspiracy theories about the mortality of Ebola patients and remains extremely popular. Pathogens seem to provide fertile ground for conspiratorial thinking as exemplified by similar challenges in eradicating polio in Pakistan and Nigeria due to conspiratorial rhetoric. It is easy to get exasperated at these conspiracy spinners but a more considered and analytical response is in order. Conspiracy…

And soon enough, Bradlee's assistant was in touch and we danced for a few weeks before we hooked up on the phone. I was nervous. This was the man, made famous by All the President's Men, who could cuss you out, charm your pants off, speak to you in French, and sniff out a story with the best of them. This was Bradlee -- the man who turned the Washington Post from a nice regional newspaper into an authoritative national voice.

A terrifying and realistic "chainsaw massacre" prank, uploaded this past Wednesday, has already garnered over 26 million YouTube views. In it, a chainsaw-wielding psychopath drags a bloody, dismembered, corpse in a parking structure as unsuspecting passerbys scream and run from the carnage. Video from behind the scenes shows how the actor playing the victim was born with no legs and just one arm. With fake blood and realistic looking guts, it gives the genuine appearance of a frighteningly…

    Hey, highbrow literary references aren't for everyone. But then, why are you reading The New Yorker? Longtime New Yorker Cartoon Editor Bob Mankoff just launched a new series in which he breaks down the magazine's droll comics in a way that we can't exactly tell if it's sarcastic or not. To introduce the pilot episode, Mankoff writes: "E. B. White wrote, 'Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.' Not to worry. I’m just going to prod the frog to reveal some of his secrets. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll tickle him." If this is a joke,…

    Television has never been an amazing source of three-dimensional female characters. For decades, the medium has relied on one-note stereotypes: the good girl, the temptress, the rebel, the know-it-all. But in the past few years, a new crop of shows -- "The Good Wife," "Orange Is the New Black," "Transparent" -- has emerged, showing that realistic women actually blur these lines. And now there may be one more to add to the mix, in light of the recent announcement that acclaimed "Bachelorette" writer-director Leslye Headland (who cites those aforementioned series as inspiration) has a script…

The photo, captured by the state-run Xinhua News Agency during a trip to Hebei province in July of 2013, first garnered international attention for its informality. The picture is somewhat dull, the setting undeniably dreary, but in a country where the media is closely monitored and image is…

That's according to a new report from GreenWave Advisors, a research and advisory firm that serves the emerging marijuana industry in the U.S., which found that if all 50 states and the federal government legalized cannabis, combined sales for both medical and retail marijuana could balloon to $35 billion a year by 2020. If the federal government doesn't end prohibition and the trajectory of state…
  • From Sh*t to Hit - Providing Remarkable Customer Experiences

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:50 pm
    The other day I flew back to Sydney from New York and just as I was dreaming of unicorns, rainbows and shooting stars, someone suddenly jolted me out of my sleep by yanking my seat up. 'It's dinner time,' the flight attendant said. 'Brilliant' I thought, I'd much rather hang out with my unicorns. But seriously, he could have tapped me on the shoulder rather than abruptly waking me as if there was an emergency (wow, I sound like a total princess here! It's not that I was dreaming of being kissed awake by a prince. Or maybe I was?). Airlines are an interesting business to study and since I fly…
  • Darrell Issa Smells Another Obama Scandal In Bank Fraud Cases

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:40 pm
    WASHINGTON -- Congress is out of session and won't be back until Nov. 12. But that isn't stopping House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) from demanding that consumer watchdogs cough up an ocean of paperwork while he's out of town. Issa has been waging a minor year-long crusade against a handful of Department of Justice investigations into petty consumer fraud. It hasn't caught on the way his probes into Benghazi and Lois Lerner have, but Issa has riled up his fellow House Republicans and issued a report claiming that DOJ's "Operation Choke Point," which seeks to cut off…

  • HBO Going Rogue Could Get Us to Net Neutrality

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:37 pm
    Recently, a couple of cable content providers have announced that they're going rogue and are going to start providing content independently of cable companies. That's good news for consumers who have, until now, been at the mercy of companies such as Comcast and Time Warner.

  • Will the Law Finally Catch Up to Goldman Sachs?

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:36 pm
    Remarkably, Goldman Sachs, one of the richest, most powerful, politically connected (aka Government Sachs) too-big-to-fail Wall Street banks, has demonstrated a Teflon-like ability to bounce back from egregious misdeeds, if not outright illegal conduct, and horrible publicity. From Matt Taibbi's Rolling Stone classic "great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity" to Sen. Carl Levin's expose of Goldman's infamous Abacus derivatives rip off, for which Goldman paid the SEC a record $550 million to settle (without, of course, admitting any wrongdoing), not to mention the massive…

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:59 pm
    Want to become a sought-after, connective leader? Then become the glue that bonds others together around their most talented sides. Consider this approach. In experiments, psychologist David Trafimow and colleagues asked half of the study participants to think about how they were different from their friends and family and asked the other half to consider how they were similar to their loved ones. They then asked participants to describe themselves. Those who were asked to think of similarities gave descriptions that included more relationships and roles than those who had thought about their…
  • Adam Smith To Xi Jinping: Wealthy Nations Need Good Laws

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:58 pm
    This article first appeared in Caixin and was translated into English by Worldcrunch. It is is part of a Worldcrunch series: China 2.0. BEIJING - In his book The Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith explained that under tyrannical and monarchical rule, property rights are always at imminent risk of infringement -- and people will usually hide their wealth. In case of emergency, they can immediately transfer their holdings to another safe haven. Though not as serious as Smith's description, China's situation is nevertheless very grim. Indeed, even though that emergency is yet to come, China's rich…

  • Amazon Stock Tanks On Massive Loss, Disappointing Forecast

    23 Oct 2014 | 1:41 pm
    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc's sales projections for the crucial holiday quarter disappointed, and third-quarter results missed Wall Street's targets, sending the online retailer's shares 9 percent lower. Some analysts fear that the U.S. holiday shopping season, the biggest quarter for most retailers, might turn out weaker than anticipated. The company projected on Thursday net sales of between $27.3 billion and $30.3 billion for the holiday quarter, lagging the $30.89 billion analysts had expected on average. After an unusually busy first half of the year that saw the online…

    “Where are the American Boy dolls?” my 8-year-old son asked me. We were at the sprawling American Girl Place store in Chicago, that mecca for big and little girls. We had just finished walking through the historical dolls gallery, after first looking at the dizzying array of dolls that could be made to look just like any little girl, the doll clothes and doll accessories. His twin sister was debating whether to get a doll that would look like her.

Dr. Craig Spencer was diagnosed with the disease on Thursday after reporting symptoms earlier in the day. He had recently returned from Guinea, where he was treating Ebola patients for Doctors Without Borders. Trump sent out the following tweet when news broke that Spencer was being tested for the disease: If this doctor, who so recklessly flew into New York from West Africa,has Ebola,then Obama should apologize to the…

  • Virgin Not the First Time for Latinos

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:19 pm
    The anticipated premiere of Jane the Virgin (CW) was as wacky and sweet as promised. Based on a Venezuelan telenovela, Jane has drawn comparisons with Ugly Betty, made evident through notable cast performances and a tendency toward camp. With its roots firmly in Spanish-language soap operas, Jane is an attempt to reach Latino viewers, while at the same time appealing to wider audiences. Besides Jane, Cristela (ABC), and Seth MacFarlane's new animated series Bordertown (FOX), set to debut in spring of 2015, all feature Latino lead characters. Initial buzz surrounding these shows has been…

This pretty much meant "EVERYONE" who was anyone in the monde of fashion. For the last 40 years in American fashion one could not write, talk, or even report on a season of fashion without invoking something about OSCAR. You will read the fashion tribe ooze on about his iconic handiwork, lace, ruffles and exquisite textures and his love of the female shape. For me, the fashion aspirant, the TV lifestyle correspondent who covered him for 2…

    Over the years Sofía Vergara’s “Modern Family” character, Gloria, has been heavily criticized for perpetuating stereotypes of Latinas. But now the Colombian actress is saying she helped the show’s writers become more culturally aware and that television could use more Latin writers. Recently the actress spoke to Time Magazine as part of the Follow The Script campaign, which raises awareness about hypothyroidism, and discussed the kinds of cultural mishaps she initially experienced on set and the state of Latino representation in Hollywood.

Jean-Philippe Thiellay, the associate director of the Paris National Opera, told Agence France-Presse that some performers had complained after spotting the woman, who was sitting close enough to the conductor to be visible on the television monitors at the Opéra Bastille, the French capital’s…
  • Leslye Headland Is The Next Big TV Writer For The Modern Woman (And Everyone Else, Too)

    Television has never been an amazing source of three-dimensional female characters. For decades, the medium has relied on one-note stereotypes: the good girl, the temptress, the rebel, the know-it-all. But in the past few years, a new crop of shows -- "The Good Wife," "Orange Is the New Black," "Transparent" -- has emerged, showing that realistic women actually blur these lines. And now there may be one more to add to the mix, in light of the recent announcement that acclaimed "Bachelorette" writer-director Leslye Headland (who cites those aforementioned series as inspiration) has a script…

    For some guys, a low-key proposal on the beach or at the end of a fancy dinner would do just fine. But not for a romantic guy like Levy, who has been putting money into his proposal piggy bank since he was 12 years old. When he popped the question to Tiffany -- his long-distance girlfriend of more than three years -- on October 14, videography company Candlelight Films was there to capture all the romance. Levy spent the last 17 months planning a scavenger hunt proposal. And when we say he pulled out all the stops, we mean it. He got her parents and all of her best friends together for the…

People become apathetic towards the horrible repercussions of rape after watching too many episodes of "CSI" or other all-too-real entertainment, Twohy reminds the crowd. “And I get it. I know that you’re tired of hearing rape poems," Twohy says. "I am tired of hearing rape poems, the same way soldiers are tired of hearing their…

  • 7 Facts That Prove Your Day-To-Day Choices Can Actually Have An Environmental Impact

    23 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Everyone thinks their contribution to being sustainable won’t make a difference. That is simply untrue. The power of one person “going green” can have a much bigger impact on the world around us than we realize. According to the NRDC, a pound of carbon dioxide could fill a ballon the size of an exercise ball -- and the average American releases the equivalent of 57 pounds of carbon dioxide, or 57 of these balloons, into the atmosphere every day.

  • The Bottom Line on Climate Change Costs

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:49 pm
    The recent report published by the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, an organization aimed at helping the world's societies to combat the effects of climate change, suggests that the costs of combating climate change are considerably lower than widespread opinion has suggested. This new analysis is considered to be a real game changer in how we perceive and act on remedies for polluting the planet. The analysis cuts to the heart of climate deniers contentious arguments that an overhaul of the fossil fuel industry will cream our economy. Not so. The study tells us that between 2015…
  • Illinois Wasting Millions on Another Coal-to-Gas Pork Project

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:38 pm
    The state of Illinois is throwing millions of taxpayer dollars at another coal-to-gas plant just two years after a similar project ended in failure. The Coal Development Fund has so far given Homeland Fuels two grants totaling $4.25 million in taxpayer dollars. The first grant was awarded in 2013 to fund a study for the proposed "Coal to Diesel Pilot Project" next to their coal supplier, which will apparently be a nearby Chris Cline-owned mine in central Illinois. The company moved addresses from Hillsboro to Litchfield before receiving a second grant for $3,500,000. There's no…

  • The Climate Post: Ozone Focus of EPA's Latest Rulemaking

    23 Oct 2014 | 1:50 pm
    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a rule that sets domestic production consumption limits for hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs)--eventually phasing them out completely by 2020. The rule aims to reduce emissions from leakage and stockpiles of four HCFCs, a class of refrigerant linked to ozone depletion and climate change. "This rule finalizes allowed amounts of HCFC production and import in 2015-2019 that protect human health and the environment, while also encouraging transition to non-ozone-depleting alternatives and greater recycling of existing HCFCs," the EPA said,…

  • 7 Facts That Prove Your Day-To-Day Choices Can Actually Have An Environmental Impact

    23 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Everyone thinks their contribution to being sustainable won’t make a difference. That is simply untrue. The power of one person “going green” can have a much bigger impact on the world around us than we realize. According to the NRDC, a pound of carbon dioxide could fill a ballon the size of an exercise ball -- and the average American releases the equivalent of 57 pounds of carbon dioxide, or 57 of these balloons, into the atmosphere every day.

  • Boy Who Shot Albino Deer With Crossbow Receives Death Threats, Family Says

    It's all fun and games until somebody gets famous for shooting a mutant beast. Gavin Dingman is 11 years old. Earlier this week, the Michigan boy went hunting with his dad. During the trip, he took down a 12-point albino buck with a crossbow. "My dad was just like, 'Take a deep breath. Are you sure you can take the shot? If you're not 100 percent, we don't want to injure it,'" the boy told USA Today. Post by WZZM 13 Grand Rapids.

  • Marijuana Industry Could Be Worth $35 Billion In 2020, If All States And Feds Legalize It

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:13 pm
    If all 50 states legalized marijuana and the federal government ended prohibition of the plant, the marijuana industry in the United States would be worth $35 billion just six years from now. That's according to a new report from GreenWave Advisors, a research and advisory firm that serves the emerging marijuana industry in the U.S., which found that if all 50 states and the federal government legalized cannabis, combined sales for both medical and retail marijuana could balloon to $35 billion a year by 2020. If the federal government doesn't end prohibition and the trajectory of state…

    GARY, Ind. (AP) — The two-bedroom home in Gary's Bungalow Heights area went up in the Roaring '20s, when the Indiana steel town was thriving and filled with prosperous subdivisions. By the time Anith Jones' body was found in its basement Saturday, the building was one of thousands of dilapidated, abandoned houses serving as havens for crime in cities like Detroit and Chicago that have battled neighborhoods in decline. Police say Darren Vann, a 43-year-old former Marine, has confessed to killing Jones and six other women. All but one of the victims were found in abandoned homes in Gary,…

    23 Oct 2014 | 10:06 am
    By: Gianni Jaccoma Credit: Flickr/Bill Dickinson These days, the term "hipster" has become so mainstream that it almost entirely lacks meaning, lost in a sea of skintight jeans, Flock of Seagulls haircuts, and cruelty-free almond butter. Even so, nearly every major city hosts a neighborhood where occupants are just a little too cool for their own good, and it's important to identify the key characteristics of such "freethinking" areas. The next time you see anything remotely resembling the following 18 warning signs, don't panic. Just know that you're out of your element, and then run as fast…

    China has no strategy, but it has a policy. This is what Chinese experts have said in the course of explaining -- or justifying -- Chinese policy toward the countries of the Middle East. Russia is clinging to its policy because it is a state that understands strategy and what makes a strategy, from geography to natural resources. Russian experts speak in this manner, sometimes condescendingly, with their Arab counterparts. The Europeans are fragmented and they confess to their disunity. Their strategy is tactical in nature. For their part, the Americans take turns in refusing to blame the…

Listening to Mrs. Kim Hye-sook share the horror of life as an inmate in one of North Korea's notorious political prison camps at a packed event at the UN earlier yesterday, it was hard not to be affected by the brutality that defined her life for nearly three decades. Arrested when she was just 13, Mrs. Kim only found out after her release that she was imprisoned because her grandfather -- whom she had never met -- fled to South Korea many years before.

To introduce the pilot episode, Mankoff writes: "E. B. White wrote, 'Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.' Not to worry.

On auto-pilot, I would boil the water for fresh pasta (parmesan in a Ziplock bag on the side) or Annie's Macaroni and cheese shells. Yellow only. And don't even think about elbows. There were other annoying necessities, such as slicing grapes, not only so that they wouldn't be choking hazards, but also because the bruised ends which attached to the vine offended them. The crusts on any sandwich must be banished, and hard boiled…

  • This Pope Photo Is Pretty Dope

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:28 pm
    From his penchant for selfies to his smooth white 1984 Renault, Pope Francis is quite possibly the most swagtastic 77-year-old we know. Then there’s this photo, recently re-surfaced by Twitter fan @Tayo: Why this pope looking like he about to drop the hardest freestyle of the year and d guy behind him dropping the beat pic.twitter.com/V6AZIyE29Q— Tayo (@temitvyo) October 15, 2014 We’re not sure why @Tayo, just like we’re not quite sure what Italian President Giorgio Napolitano had to do to earn a place in Francis’ posse. One thing's for sure: When the Holy Father gets ready to throw…
  • The New Yorker Finally Realized Us Plebeians Don't Get Their Cartoons

    23 Oct 2014 | 1:53 pm
    Hey, highbrow literary references aren't for everyone. But then, why are you reading The New Yorker? Longtime New Yorker Cartoon Editor Bob Mankoff just launched a new series in which he breaks down the magazine's droll comics in a way that we can't exactly tell if it's sarcastic or not. To introduce the pilot episode, Mankoff writes: "E. B. White wrote, 'Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.' Not to worry. I’m just going to prod the frog to reveal some of his secrets. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll tickle him." If this is a joke,…

  • Man Teaches Puppy To Ring Bell For A Treat, Unwittingly Creates Adorable Bell-Ringing Monster

    23 Oct 2014 | 1:32 pm
    Did you forget to feed your puppy? Maybe this video will ring a bell. Careful, though: Once that bell starts ringing, it may be impossible to stop. This cautionary tale brought to you by Maddie, a 10-week old dachshund puppy whose owner taught her she'd get a treat every time she rang a bell. As you'd expect, Maddie picks up the trick quickly and transforms into a bell-ringing monster. (Albeit a very, very cute monster). YouTuber Kirk Miller originally uploaded the video in 2012, but it has only recently gone viral thanks to a boost from Viral Viral Videos. Like Us On Facebook Follow Us On…

    With ISIS dominating the headlines with their vicious, Dark Age brand of extremism, arguments over "boots on the ground" and unhinged declarations about all of us all getting "killed back here at home!" by supposed Serious People talking about running for president (God Help Us) from their influential permanent perches on our increasingly Kardashian-esque Sunday shows. With a "reconstruction" conference over how to physically rebuild Gaza, after a summer of war that included loose talk by an Israeli politician of a Palestinian genocide, as well as a tide of anti-Semitism unleashed from its…

    Bob Cesca
    3 Oct 2014 | 2:14 pm
    If you were in a coma for the last six years, then suddenly awakened this past weekend to observe both John Oliver's Last Week Tonight on HBO and Bill O'Reilly's appearance on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, you might assume they were talking about the military actions of two very separate and distinct presidents. On one hand, there was Bill O'Reilly who continued to push for a stronger response to Islamic jihad. Not only should the president seek to hire a mercenary army of 25,000 privateers, but we should also somehow recruit Zombie Patton to roll into Syria with the Third Army from…
  • GOP Continues to Blow Off Rule About Not Criticizing the President During Wartime

    Bob Cesca
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:59 pm
    The biggest news of the past 10 days: President Obama launched the first sorties into Syria, targeting ISIS terrorists. Within 24 hours, however, Republicans everywhere decided to turn an awkward salute into a near-impeachable crime against humanity, thus violating one of their most sacred rules from the Bush administration era: never criticize the commander-in-chief during wartime. Here's just another friendly reminder of what I thought was the rule about this kind of behavior (note that O'Reilly and Hannity have been especially critical of Obama): "You don't criticize the commander-in-chief…
  • The New and 'Edgy' Meet the Press Explains the Midterms Using Chicken, Coffee, and a 'Nerd Screen'

    Bob Cesca
    23 Sep 2014 | 3:14 pm
    There are a few things we know about the current status of Meet the Press. As Chez Pazienza pointed out, the way NBC News forced David Gregory out of his job was horrendously bad form. Like or dislike Gregory's style, there's no justifying the way he was tossed out. Nevertheless, NBC's choice for a replacement was essentially a lateral move -- swapping Gregory for MSNBC's Chuck Todd, who's basically the same person, torn from the same establishment circuit. There's really nothing Chuck Todd brings to the show that David Gregory didn't already provide. Except for one thing. Those of us old…

On the economy, the president reported: This morning we found out that our economy actually grew at a stronger clip in the second quarter than we originally thought. Companies are investing, consumers are spending. Over the past four and a half years, our businesses have now created nearly 10 million new jobs. So there are reasons to feel good about the direction we're headed. On ISIS and…

  • No Predicting This World Series

    Lincoln Mitchell
    21 Oct 2014 | 1:01 pm
    The World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants features two teams that were pretty good in the regular season but have been played either excellent (the Giants) or almost flawless (the Royals) baseball during the postseason. The two teams, neither of whom managed to win 90 games in the regular season, also have dramatically different recent histories. The Giants have won two of the last four World Series and will be representing their league for the fifth time in the last 25 years in the World Series. The Royals, for their part, have not appeared in the fall…
  • In Defense of This World Series

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:58 am
    In recent days there have been a number of articles asserting that the 2014 postseason is either boring or not lucrative for MLB because of the absence of any teams with a national following, like the New York Yankees or the Boston Red Sox. Leaving aside the question of why an ordinary baseball fan should care whether or not ratings are up for the World Series, these assertions, at least with regards to the teams and the game on the field, are inaccurate. Clearly baseball isn't for everybody. Some people did not grow up with the game and have never fully learned the beauty and nuance of…
  • Does the Better Team Win in Baseball's Postseason?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    8 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Over the course of the 162 game baseball season of 2014, four teams won 94 or more games. Today as four teams remain in baseball's postseason tournament, only one of those teams is still playing. The Washington Nationals led the NL with 96 wins; the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim led the AL with 98 wins, but neither team made it out of the first round of the playoffs. Both teams were defeated in the LDS by teams that did not muster even 90 wins. For some this reflects the excitement and dynamism of the postseason, but for others it is in indication that the postseason, as it is now structured,…

    1 Oct 2014 | 2:12 pm
    For baseball fans, the end of September and beginning of October are a fun time. Playoff baseball often consists of tense, high-stakes and exciting games featuring the baseball's best players. It is also a time of mind-numbing cliches, lazy analysis and in, much of the media, an understanding of baseball that too often seems frozen sometime around the last Kansas City Royals World Series victory. Before last night's Royals-A's games, the analysts on TBS promised a great pitching duel largely because the Royals were starting James Shields. Shields, who as I learned yesterday, is nicknamed "Big…

There has been some talk about this for months, but it has grown louder in recent days. Yesterday, The Washington Post described Mr. Romney's evolving potential candidacy as "The road from 'I'm not doing it again' to 'Circumstances can change' is paved with favorable polls, 2012 predictions that came true and public statements from supporters."

    Few things are better at getting the word out about a past injustice than a Hollywood movie and Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner and directed by Michael Cuesta does so with depth and drama. For the first time the true story about the courageous investigative journalist, Gary Webb, is being told in movie theaters across the country where people can draw their own conclusions unhindered by the noise and static of establishment naysayers in the corporate media. This powerful film uses an "entertainment" format to assess the compelling evidence that people tied to the Nicaraguan Contras,…

    When high school students in Jefferson County, Colorado walked out in protest against the right-wingers on the school board who purged their history curriculum of content they deemed "unpatriotic" they probably learned more in a week of direct action than they could learn in a year of going to class. Not content to write a letter of complaint, or sign a petition, or tap "Like" on a Facebook page - these young people hit the streets in the grand tradition of civil disobedience in America; the same tradition the Jefferson County school board seeks to airbrush out.

  • Ken Burns' 'The Roosevelts' Reveals Everything Wrong With Our Current Political Class

    Joseph A. Palermo
    21 Sep 2014 | 5:39 pm
    Ken Burns' seven-part PBS series on the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, is a remarkable achievement. Burns sheds a poignant new light on the personal and public lives of three monumental figures in 20th Century American history. And in doing so, he illustrates the relative rottenness of the hacks, partisans, and plutocrats who make up the political class that rules America today. By exploring the lives and times of TR, FDR, and ER Burns shows that in our not-so-distant past the governing institutions of this country were actually…

    Che Guevara famously called for "one, two, many Vietnams!" The idea was that constant warfare around the globe could at some point bleed dry the United States. Today, we hear similar calls for "one, two, many Iraqs!" Yet these noises aren't coming from a charismatic socialist revolutionary but from American foreign policy elites. Just over a year ago, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry were trying their best to drum up support for cruise missile strikes against the Syrian government of Bashir al-Assad. When confronted with the fact that the vast majority of Americans…

    It's difficult to write about the racial and political implications of the killing in Ferguson, Missouri, of an unarmed African-American teenager, Michael Brown, at the hands of a white police officer without rehashing what has been said a million times. When the inevitable incidents of police brutality or racially-tinged violence crop up -- be it Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, or Michael Brown -- you can count on a few news cycles featuring hand-wringing analysis followed by calls to action that everybody knows will never be answered. The only reason why the Ferguson conflict…

    (Frank S hanging out back stage with the band Delta Spirit, and with my pals Jesse and Dan Russell.) I was tired, so fucking tired! The night before last I'd been at The Paradise Club in Boston at a rock concert by Delta Spirit. Now I was in New York listening to the St. Matthew Passion by J.S. Bach at the most coveted "two-performances-only" concert in town. No one could get tickets. I could because the lyric soprano Camilla Tilling is my friend. The night before I'd had a back stage pass and was the guest of the bass player. My ears are still ringing. Delta Spirit is a great band.

  • Why Do You Think So Many Atheists Seem So Evangelistic?

    Frank Schaeffer
    1 Oct 2014 | 4:36 am
    Why do you think so many atheists seem so evangelistic? They even sometimes speak of their moment of "de-conversion" as a flip-side to the so-called born again experience. If life teaches us anything it's that certainty is overrated. The real life-lessons aren't found in intellectual theories much less in theology, but in seeing life through the lens of those we love most. For instance, I actually experienced brief and perfect instants when death lost its sting. Being with my granddaughter Lucy as she's grown up next door so far (she's just turned six) has helped me more honestly think…

    Die schlechten Wirtschaftsnachrichten, die uns derzeit erreichen, wirken wie ein eisiger Herbstregen nach einem milden Spätsommertag. In der ersten Jahreshälfte herrschte in Deutschland Überschwang. Die Konjunktur schien vor Gesundheit zu strotzen, unberührt von den Problemen in anderen Teilen Europas, und die Große Koalition konnte zwei Dinge tun, die selten miteinander vereinbar sind: Sie hat einerseits das Geld mit vollen Händen unters Volk geworfen - Mütterrente, Rente mit 63, Entlastungen für die Kommunen und vieles mehr.

Am Abend das Gleiche zurück - fünf, manchmal sechs Tage die Woche. Dann musste ich meine Kleine noch baden, ihr etwas vorlesen und mit ihr kuscheln.

Paracetamol gehört zu dem am meisten verwendeten Schmerzmittel während der Schwangerschaft. Mehrere Studien der letzten Jahre haben ein erhöhtes Risiko für Hodenhochstand und Unfruchtbarkeit bei Jungen und Asthma bei Kindern nach Paracetamol-Exposition während der Schwangerschaft beschrieben.

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

  • Diesen Fehler darf die große Koalition nicht machen

    24 Oct 2014 | 1:25 am
    Die schlechten Wirtschaftsnachrichten, die uns derzeit erreichen, wirken wie ein eisiger Herbstregen nach einem milden Spätsommertag. In der ersten Jahreshälfte herrschte in Deutschland Überschwang. Die Konjunktur schien vor Gesundheit zu strotzen, unberührt von den Problemen in anderen Teilen Europas, und die Große Koalition konnte zwei Dinge tun, die selten miteinander vereinbar sind: Sie hat einerseits das Geld mit vollen Händen unters Volk geworfen - Mütterrente, Rente mit 63, Entlastungen für die Kommunen und vieles mehr. Andererseits rückten die sprudelnden Steuereinnahmen…
  • Ich bin alleinerziehend und dieser Sch*** ist verdammt hart

    24 Oct 2014 | 12:52 am
    Einige Monate nachdem ich den Vater meiner Tochter verlassen hatte, musste ich ihm gestehen, dass ich Probleme hatte, mich an das Leben als alleinerziehende Mutter zu gewöhnen. Die tägliche vierstündige Pendelfahrt machte mir zu schaffen: eine Stunde Fahrt durch die Bronx nach Upper Manhattan, um sie dort bei ihrer Großmutter abzusetzen und dann eine Stunde im Zug zur Arbeit. Am Abend das Gleiche zurück - fünf, manchmal sechs Tage die Woche. Dann musste ich meine Kleine noch baden, ihr etwas vorlesen und mit ihr kuscheln. Wenn ich sie dann ins Bett gebracht hatte, war ich völlig…

Vielleicht lässt die Herbstnostalgie den Schauspieler in warmen Gedanken an seine Kindheit schwelgen. Bei Facebook postete er mit dem Hashtag #‎throwbackthursday‬ gestern ein Foto, das ihn 1984 als kleiner Bub und dafür umso größerer Goldkette um den Hals am Meer zeigt.

Fast annähernd alle deutschsprachigen Äußerungen auf Twitter rund um den Bahn-Streik sind negativ - sowohl für die Deutsche Bahn als auch für die Gewerkschaft Deutscher Lokomotivführer (GDL), wie der präzise und umfassende Blick auf die rund 25.000 Tweets zur Deutschen Bahn und knapp 13.400 Kurznachrichten zur GDL mit unserem Social Intelligence-Tool Attensity Analyze zeigt.

    Paracetamol-Exposition während der Schwangerschaft erhöht nach neuen Studien bei den Kindern das Risiko u.a. für schwergradige Entwicklungsstörungen, Aufmerksamkeitsdefizit-Hyperaktivitätsstörung (ADHS) und Hyperaktivitätssyndrom (HAS). Paracetamol gehört zu dem am meisten verwendeten Schmerzmittel während der Schwangerschaft. Mehrere Studien der letzten Jahre haben ein erhöhtes Risiko für Hodenhochstand und Unfruchtbarkeit bei Jungen und Asthma bei Kindern nach Paracetamol-Exposition während der Schwangerschaft beschrieben.

    From time to time we have pre-conceived notions about people. As much as we try not to, we do. Last week while I was on my way to hear Madeleine Albright speak, I feared that her presentation might be dull and boring. After all, talking about sanctions against Iraq or the American policy in Bosnia is certainly educational, but it can also be very dry. I couldn't have been more wrong.

    FOOTBALL - Un match dont Erik Lamela se souviendra longtemps. A l'occasion d'une rencontre de la 3e journée de Ligue Europa opposant son équipe, Tottenham, aux Grecs de l'Asteras Tripolis, le milieu international argentin a inscrit un but hors du commun. Reprenant un ballon qui traînait à l'entrée de la surface, le joueur a réussi une frappe puissante grâce à un "coup du foulard" qui n'a laissé aucune chance au gardien adverse (voir la vidéo en haut de cet article). Egalement appelé "rabona", ce geste technique (ou du moins son appellation) vient justement d'Argentine et remonte à…

Cette bête de 300 kilos enlève la belle jeune fille alors qu'elle promène ses moutons, et l'entraîne bientôt dans sa tanière, qui n'est qu'obscurité, humidité et roche.

    Human rights would be empowered by a proportional and rational response, but knee-jerk fear has a history of racism in this country when it comes to public health. Unfortunately, current media reactions, prevalent in mainstream and social media, are fanning flames of xenophobia in America and withholding care from those that need it most.

    We need to change the tax and regulatory incentives that now reward corporate leadership for short-term thinking. CEOs today make most of their money from stock options, which means they are highly motivated to keep the stock price up even if it means shortchanging long term objectives.

  • All About That Bass -- Or Is It?

    Shannon Cutts
    8 Oct 2014 | 12:47 pm
    From the time I was eight, all I wanted to do was write songs. I wrote and wrote and wrote. I wrote for years, dreaming of the day I would hear one of my songs being sung on the radio by a famous singer. As I got older I found out many other songwriters had the same dream, so I started singing my songs myself. I entered a few song contests -- one year I even won! That was the year I realized other people's opinions are just opinions -- nothing less, and certainly nothing more. That particular year, some people -- people who happened to be contest judges -- liked my song enough to declare it…
  • Take a 'Virtual Walk' for Eating Disorders Awareness Week

    Shannon Cutts
    5 Feb 2014 | 2:27 pm
    Long gone are the days of the "anonymous Internet" when folks surfed and shared about their deepest fears and struggles under the protective cover of pseudonyms. Today, building a social media presence equates to constructing a very public and powerful platform to do good, influence public opinion, promote personally significant causes, and, well, change the world. Or at least that is what our Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, and other social networks allegedly have the potential to do. I will confess I usually use my social networks to look at pictures of cute baby parrots…
  • Why I'm Glad I'm Not Famous Like Megan Fox and Jodie Foster

    I will admit it. I occasionally (always) struggle to comprehend the editorials in my TIME magazine subscriptions. Or at least I did struggle until I figured out a useful strategy to combat this. Now I just skip the editorials entirely and flip straight to the back to read Joel Stein's column, the 10-question celebrity profile featurette and of course The Culture section, which contains more celebrities and lots of colorful pictures. A recent edition of TIME's The Culture lampooned actress Megan Fox for her poor choice of analogies when answering one of the press' many endless questions about…
  • Lady Gaga, Naso-Gastric Tubes, and My Commitment

    Shannon Cutts

    I have tried so hard to keep quiet in the recent spate of news headlines targeting the use of feeding tubes for pre-wedding diets, Lady Gaga's controversial body image tweets, and other similar spring season "thin ideal" viral media frenzies. But I have watched these topics circulating and recirculating for a couple of very long weeks now, and the truth is, I just can't. I was trying to stay mum because my usual policy regarding discussion of such potentially triggering topics is that "less is more", and the last thing I want to have to bear responsibility for is putting a dangerous idea…
  • Our Mentors Are Where We Are

    Shannon Cutts
    24 Feb 2011 | 5:54 am
    Have you ever heard the phrase, "Wherever you go, there you are"? The same could be said for our mentors. This past week I spoke to a crowd of several hundred students at Truman State University. The topic? Body image and eating disorders. The truth, as I shared with the students, is that most of us simply don't have time to stop and analyze all of the messages that come at us each day. Most of us don't even have time to stop and notice that those messages are there. Yet they mentor us. They affect us. They sink into our awareness anyway -- whether we invited them to do so or not. And once…
