    A little laughter can go a long way, a new study reveals.We all know the mood-boosting benefits of a good laugh, but researchers at California's Loma Linda University set out to find out if humor can deliver more than just comic relief. The study looked at 20 healthy older adults in their 60s and 70s, measuring their stress levels and short-term memory. One group was asked to sit silently, not talking, reading, or using their cellphones, while the other group watched funny videos.After 20 minutes, the participants gave saliva samples and took a short memory test.

  • A Conversation With Eckhart Tolle

    Arianna Huffington
    22 Apr 2014 | 6:04 am
    One of my favorite moments on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday came when Oprah asked the poet Mark Nepo what he considers sacred. When he replied, "Conversations like this are sacred to me," Oprah said, "They're so sacred to me I created a whole show to have them!" In 2008 Oprah and the spiritual teacher and author Eckhart Tolle held a number of those conversations as part of their Web series Oprah & Eckhart Tolle: A New Earth. Now they're bringing those episodes to television for the first time, Sundays at noon on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. Since my new book Thrive is concerned with many…

    This week began the way so many do: with more tragic gun violence, as three people were killed in two shootings at Jewish centers in the Kansas City area, part of the 86 killed by guns in the U.S. every day. "We are united in our condemnation of this heinous attack," said Attorney General Holder. "These acts cannot be ignored." And yet, one year ago this month, the Senate rejected even a modest background check bill, despite the support of 90 percent of Americans. In the wake of the Kansas shootings, Michael Bloomberg's $50 million gun control effort, "Everytown for Gun Safety," unveiled its…

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

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

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

    Godzilla is a multicultural icon. If there was a Coca-Cola commercial featuring monsters that sung the national anthem, he'd be singing his part in a mixture of English and Japanese. He's been terrorizing Tokyo for longer than Disneyland has been around. Over the span of 60 years, he's battled Earthlings, space monsters and robots, spawned offspring and chased Matthew Broderick, all while belting out the most iconic roar in film history. He's appeared in 28 Japanese films, a 1998 American film and an upcoming 2014 reboot, countless comic books, novels, video games and TV. That's an astounding…

The child is breastfeeding at one of her breasts and holding his hand over the other. After distributors expressed concern about having the magazine on US newsstands, HipMama was forced to publish not one, but two, covers: a "family-friendly" one that ensured it would be sold on newsstands and in supermarkets in which her bared breast is hidden by a large red dot and another, mailed to subscribers, in which…

Our now infamous one percent own more than 35 percent of the nation's wealth. Meanwhile, the bottom 40 percent of the country is in debt.

    Is the United States a strong nation? There's a notion that it is, of course -- based mainly on the disruptive philosophical underpinnings upon which this country was established. But these are all really the fumes of nostalgia. What else is there? Well, we have the best fleet of aerial drone death-dealers in the world (for now). Certainly our fast-food accomplishments are second to none.

    There might not have been a better opportunity for Qatar to find its way back to the bosom of its neighbors than the last GCC foreign ministers meeting in Riyadh. The extraordinary summit, which is owed to enormous Kuwaiti diplomatic efforts, succeeded in creating a chance of normalizing relations between Qatar and fellow GCC states: Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain. Many sought to analyze and interpret the recent developments as per their whims or according to what their alleged sources say.

    There are certain subjects that progressives tend to shy away from for their own ideological reasons. Concerned lest it provide ammunition to the right, the left downplays many retrograde practices associated with political Islam. In a sense, such a development is hardly surprising: for years the left has criticized U.S. foreign policy and American sponsorship of Israel, and doesn't want to encourage Washington to launch more foreign adventures. In light of recent history, including U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, such concerns are not altogether misplaced. However, by adopting such a…

    The newest issue of HipMama magazine features a photograph of artist Ana Alvarez-Errecald standing, topless, holding her baby. He's wearing a Spiderman costume and she is wearing the mask. The child is breastfeeding at one of her breasts and holding his hand over the other. After distributors expressed concern about having the magazine on US newsstands, HipMama was forced to publish not one, but two, covers: a "family-friendly" one that ensured it would be sold on newsstands and in supermarkets in which her bared breast is hidden by a large red dot and another, mailed to subscribers, in which…
  • Free Speech Lessons From a Lifetime Movie That Beat Censorship, Not Women

    22 Apr 2014 | 12:02 pm
    It's really almost too easy to poke fun at Lifetime movies. Critic Christopher Lawrence of the Las Vegas Review Journal once wrote that the Lifetime Movie Network's unofficial motto should be "mistreating women every two hours since 1998." Comedian Jim Gaffigan riffs that "there's always a woman getting beaten on that channel." And that beating usually occurs at the hands of a machinating man who, as Lifetime movie reviewer extraordinaire Jennifer Boudinot wryly wrote in The Huffington Post, "doesn't turn into a true asshole until after he gets married." But on April 17, Lifetime…
  • Do You Kiss Your Mother With That Tweet?

    22 Apr 2014 | 10:27 am
    Early in my career, while working for a Fortune 100 company, I flew to the Philippines on a business trip. It was the weekend before a series of meetings, and over 100 sweltering tropical degrees, but I was dressed in a full suit and tie. That was company policy. It was made perfectly clear that wherever we went and whatever we did, we represented the brand -- and we were to look and behave accordingly. Looking back, I don't recall ever seeing the official rules on publishing pornographic images of a woman being violated with a model of one of the company's products in response to a customer…
  • Parker Molloy Does Not Hate RuPaul

    22 Apr 2014 | 10:09 am
    Credit: Parker Molloy Recently a public dispute erupted between the transgender old guard and the new wave of trans* advocates and journalists. This kind of thing is not new. When I was a young transgender woman coming to terms with my own gender identity, I recall vividly how many transsexuals found it offensive to be lumped in with crossdressers and gender queer individuals. I don't think I quite understood the concept yet of "transsexual separatists," but I often heard women speak about the differences between transsexuals and transgender people. Most of the transsexual women I knew had…

    23 Apr 2014 | 1:55 am
    DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — Pro-Russian gunmen in eastern Ukraine admitted on Wednesday that they are holding an American journalist who has not been seen since early Tuesday. Simon Ostrovsky, a journalist for Vice News, has been covering the crisis in Ukraine for weeks and was reporting about groups of masked gunmen seizing government buildings in one eastern Ukrainian city after another. Pro-Russia insurgents who have been occupying police stations and other public buildings in eastern Ukraine for more than a week are defying the accords that Russia and Ukraine signed last week, urging all…
  • Ex-Fox Executive Denies Allegations In Sex Abuse Suit

    22 Apr 2014 | 3:02 pm
    HONOLULU (AP) — A former Fox television executive on Tuesday denied allegations that he sexually abused a teen through a sex ring involving underage children. Louise Ann Fernandez, a lawyer for Garth Ancier, said all the allegations made by Michael Egan III in a federal lawsuit filed in Hawaii are untrue. Fernandez said Ancier has never visited the estate in Hawaii where Egan claims he was molested. "We are confident the courts will agree when the evidence is presented," Fernandez said. Egan made similar allegations last week when he sued "X-Men" director Bryan Singer. Ancier and two other…

  • Newspaper Article Accidentally Sums Up The Marijuana Legalization Debate

    22 Apr 2014 | 1:15 pm
    Is it time for Ohio to legalize marijuana? That was the question posed by the Dayton City Paper, an independent alternative weekly in Dayton, Ohio, to its readers last week. As part of its coverage of the legalization issue, the paper set aside a page for a "debate forum," with one DCP staffer arguing for marijuana legalization on the left side of the page, and another staffer arguing the anti-legalization case on the right side. That was the plan, anyway. Just one problem: Dayton City Paper's editors were unable to find anyone on their staff to argue against legalization. Instead, they went…

    KATMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Dozens of Sherpa guides packed up their tents and left Mount Everest's base camp Wednesday, after the avalanche deaths of 16 of their colleagues exposed an undercurrent of resentment by Sherpas over their pay, treatment and benefits. With the entire climbing season increasingly thrown into doubt, the government quickly announced that top tourism officials would fly to base camp Thursday to negotiate with the Sherpas and encourage them to return to work. But while Nepal's government has been heavily criticized for not doing enough for the Sherpas in the wake of last…

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders on Tuesday sued the team over a pay system they say had them working hundreds of hours for free at games and at mandatory public appearances at which they were subjected to groping and sexual comments, and one said they had to take a jiggle test so their boss could see how firm their bodies were. The state Supreme Court lawsuit is the third filed this year against a National Football League team by cheerleaders. The Oakland Raiders and Cincinnati Bengals also have pending wage battles. The case against the Bills says its…

    22 Apr 2014 | 4:46 pm
    Innovation -- the act of creating extraordinary new value in extraordinary new ways -- is a dance with one foot in the future and the other in the past. It is the past that gives you the raw material to imagine things that never were ask the proverbial, "why not?" question. And then, of course, the future takes over, for that is where innovation must find its home. That said, not everyone steps into the future with the same dance move or with the same dance partners. Much of what is extraordinary and new about the finest innovators comes from a certain asymmetry in their experiences, their…

  • Three Ways to Fill High-Skilled Jobs

    22 Apr 2014 | 3:55 pm
    The most recent Labor Department's job growth report shows that the American economy added 192,000 jobs last month, not as much as some analysts predicted. The unemployment rate of 6.7 percent still persists at relatively high levels, yet thousands of high-wage jobs need to be filled at companies across the country, right now. What accounts for this disconnect? The high-wage jobs found in industries like aerospace, defense and bioscience require high-skilled employees, and there are simply not enough qualified people who can apply for and fill the positions. In Southern Arizona where I live,…

Two years later, they received their first angel investment of $100,000 for a company that didn't yet exist. In 1998 PC Magazine named the newly christened Google the search engine of choice. Feeling like the company was distracting from their academic pursuits, in early 1999 Sergey and Larry tried to sell Google for $1 million to an established web company.

    I've been approached recently to elaborate on the "flow" state at work. Flow, the state where we feel in command of what we do, execute tasks effortlessly, and perform at our best, was discovered by researchers at the University of Chicago. They asked a wide range of people, "Tell us about a time you outdid yourself -- you performed at your peak." No matter who answered -- ballerinas, chess champs, surgeons -- they all described the characteristics of the flow state. One of flow's best features: It feels great. We all know that we do our best work in those exceptional moments when we've…

But Jared Frank just might make it work. The 22-year-old Canadian could earn big bucks for his viral YouTube clip, the CBC reported. Frank (whose YouTube handle is Jared Michael), told the outlet that he made a deal with licensing company Jukin Media. The CBC estimated that the arrangement could mean $30,000 to $250,00 in revenue for Frank, plus potential income from other licensing. His original train kick video had accrued…

Over the span of 60 years, he's battled Earthlings, space monsters and robots, spawned offspring and chased Matthew Broderick, all while belting out the most iconic roar in film history. He's appeared in 28 Japanese films, a 1998 American film and an upcoming 2014 reboot, countless comic books, novels, video games and TV. That's an astounding…

    Lesson of the day: Never trust a cut-out skirt. Rumer Willis made quite the appearance when she hit the town in a rather revealing skirt and crop top for Elle's Women In Music concert on Tuesday, April 22, in Hollywood. The skirt featured two large cut-outs over the thigh and Willis' pink underwear was visible through the holes as she turned to pose for photos on the red carpet. Whether she knew about the wardrobe snafu at the time or not, the 25-year-old certainly seemed comfortable once inside the event while DJing a special set. Sarah McLachlan, Angel Haze and Betty Who also performed.

    I'm going to be brutally honest here and say that I was a supremely confident tween. Just ask the boys who I told flat out that I had crushes on them in middle school or the teachers who year after year wrote "great participation, talks a little too much" on all of my elementary school report cards. But something happened once I got a little bit older. I had to start going on awful things like job interviews and even worse...the occasional date. Suddenly, the chutzpah (or ballsiness for you non-yiddish speakers) I so heavily relied on seemed to vanish into thin air. Instead of feeling excited…

  • Spring Fevered Bad Fashion

    22 Apr 2014 | 10:41 am
    After a long, skin-crackin' winter, fresh colors herald the spring. Pink, yellow and pale greens are budding everywhere on new clothes racks. I'm about to be fashion blindsided. Put those pink daisy pants down! Who wouldn't want fun and flirty wear after a season of dark woolen coats and sensible shoes? The problem is, I'm pushing 60 but my inner teen still wants low-slung jeans and filmy blouses. She is responsible for my bad fashion choices. At stores she and I go 'round and 'round. I tell her, "You're circa 1973. Get over the short skirts and peekaboo tops." She pouts. "Can't we at least…
  • Browsable Women: The Three Hells of Online Dating

    22 Apr 2014 | 9:26 am
    Let's talk about online dating and visual marketing. There are three forms of browsable women. (Substitute "men" if you like.) 1. Pornography 2. Mass media and cheesecake photos. 3. Online dating. Each of these types of browsable partners has something to offer. Let's see if there is a relationship between them, or if we can understand something about ourselves through a bit of exploration. Only one of these pools of images has the potential for a real human connection. (With someone other than yourself, I mean.) One of these pools of images and videos has the potential for immediate sexual…

  • How Butt Clenching Gave Me More Body Confidence

    23 Apr 2014 | 5:05 am
    I'm going to be brutally honest here and say that I was a supremely confident tween. Just ask the boys who I told flat out that I had crushes on them in middle school or the teachers who year after year wrote "great participation, talks a little too much" on all of my elementary school report cards. But something happened once I got a little bit older. I had to start going on awful things like job interviews and even worse...the occasional date. Suddenly, the chutzpah (or ballsiness for you non-yiddish speakers) I so heavily relied on seemed to vanish into thin air. Instead of feeling excited…

Will required some assistance when it was his turn to spin, but Kate actually kind of looks like a natural. And what is even cooler than a DJing duchess? A DJing duchess in a pink Alexander McQueen ensemble. Let's be real, if these two put out an album, we'd be first in line to buy it.

    GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man charged with first-degree murder is afraid the tattooed mirror-image letters spelling out the word "murder" across his neck might prejudice a jury, so he is asking for a professional tattoo artist to remove or cover it up. Prosecutors say they aren't opposed to Jeffrey Chapman covering his tattoo, but Barton County's sheriff says he's against transporting Chapman to a licensed tattoo facility — the only places tattoo artists are allowed to practice under Kansas law. The Great Bend Tribune (http://bit.ly/1hdCklp ) reports Chapman's trial is scheduled to…

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal forecasters calculated that for most of the Earth, last month was one of the hottest Marchs on record — except in the United States. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Tuesday that it was the fourth hottest March in 135 years of records. The overall global temperature was 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit (0.7 degree Celsius) warmer than the 20th century average. But in the United States, March was about a degree cooler than normal, or about a half a degree Celsius. It was the 43rd coolest March on record. Slovakia had its hottest March on record while…

  • Cities Need Nature

    23 Apr 2014 | 5:31 am
      We humans have an intrinsic emotional need to connect with nature.  The eminent biologist E. O. Wilson first called this need “biophilia,” and the term has stuck.  Yet cities also, and fundamentally, need the structure of hardscape urbanism – streets, buildings, and infrastructure – in sufficient density to achieve environmental and economic efficiency and nurture social bonds.  It is critical that we incorporate nature into cities, but we must do so in a way that supports urbanity rather than replaces it.

One criterion of the health of our democracy is the active role of higher education in civic dialogue and as a catalyst for change based on prevailing values and advances in knowledge. The issue of our day is not simply an issue of the day, it is the greatest challenge to life on this planet in human history: climate change.

The 86-year-old retired transit worker figures he is an increasingly rare kind of baseball fan. "Look around, do you see many people keeping score?" he asked. No indeed. Between batters and between pitches, most fans in the stands at Wrigley — and everywhere else in the majors — take their eyes off the game to peck away at smartphones, phablets, tablets and iPads.

Congress isn't even in session right now -- lawmakers are taking the week off for a district work period.

    A couple of polls popped up over the weekend focusing on some of the key players in Illinois politics. First, with just over six months until the November general election, the first poll focusing on the race for governor between Gov. Pat Quinn and Bruce Rauner appeared. The poll showed Rauner with a slight 43-40 lead, a figure that means little with so much time to go. What does mean a lot, however, is what the poll said about both Quinn's ratings and the favorability of public unions in Illinois.

  • Do You Earn a Living Wage?

    22 Apr 2014 | 12:49 pm
    Debate over the minimum wage is all the rage at the moment at both the federal and state levels. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has made raising Illinois' minimum wage from $8.25 an hour to $10 a major plank in his reelection campaign platform. President Barack Obama advocates doing the same at the federal level, which now has a $7.25 minimum wage. The tug-of-war on this issue is intense. While the Congressional Budget Office issued a report saying raising the federal minimum wage would hurt job creation, proponents say it's a necessary step to ensuring that all full-time workers can make a "living…

On the other hand, love and compassion are deeply felt personal emotions and sentiments of individuals. It would, therefore, seem that love and compassion do not or need not have a legitimate place in governance.

However, 20 years on, people are starting to talk about the "Return of History" in the face of historical regressions and anachronisms, especially in Europe and in Northeast Asia. Whether this is the End of History or the Return of History, one cannot deny the fact that the…

The search coordination center said Wednesday evening that police secured the material that washed ashore 10 kilometers (6 miles) east of Augusta in Western Australia. Its statement did not describe the material found. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is examining photographs to assess whether further investigation is needed and if the material is relevant to Flight MH370. Augusta is near Australia's southwestern tip…
  • 'To Be Or Not To Be': That Was Our Poll Question

    23 Apr 2014 | 4:41 am
    On Wednesday, William Shakespeare would have turned 450 -- if the bard really were immortal. In honor of his birthday, a HuffPost/YouGov poll posed some of his most memorable questions to the American public. In true Shakespearean fashion, we're introducing the results with a sonnet: Do Shakespeare's words apply to us today? Assessing that was our primary goal. So taking inspiration from his plays We asked his famous questions in a poll. "To be or not"? Is greatness "thrust" or earned? In stars or in ourselves, where does fault lie? Perhaps it won't surprise too much to learn That differences…

    23 Apr 2014 | 5:06 am
    On Wednesday, April 23, "13 Going On 30" turns 10 years old. In honor of the reverse-coming-of-age time travel romcom (and all 13 year olds now going on 23), we have spliced Jennifer Garner's recreation of "Thriller" into 11 easy steps. Without further adieu, please let her teach you how to dance, nay, how to live via the GIF-ed cuts of the sequence below. Step 1: Turn to the side and take four steps forward and four steps back, starting with your right foot first. Bob your head on beats one, three, and four, and be sure to shake your butt. Step 2: Turn your waist to the front, and push your…
  • 5 Things You Quit Saying When You Hit 60

    23 Apr 2014 | 4:50 am
    With age should come some wisdom, right? So with that in mind, there are a few things that many of us still say that should perhaps be retired. Why? Because at 60, we know better. Here are 5 examples of what we mean: 1. "Hindsight is the perfect vision." Enough already with the second guessing and playing the "if only" game. At every crossroad in our lives we make a choice. We evaluate the best information we have at the moment and take a leap of faith that what we are deciding will be right. Sometimes, years later, we realize we were wrong. Hindsight may be the perfect vision, but who needs…
  • The 29 Greatest Selfies Of All Time

    23 Apr 2014 | 4:34 am
    It's easy to write off the Oxford Dictionary's 2013 Word of the Year as a silly, narcissistic fad. But every once in a while, a selfie comes along that really is more art than duck-faced cry for Instagram attention. To prove our point, we decided to treat the form with the respect it deserves and round up our favorite face-facing photos of all time. Whether it's for the courage displayed or impeccable fashion taste on view, we think you'll agree that these 29 self-portraits are impossible to dislike. 29.

  • Jon Stewart's Hilarious Takedown Of Sexism Looks At When 'It's OK To Be A P***y'

    23 Apr 2014 | 3:44 am
    When news of Chelsea Clinton's pregnancy broke, the pundits immediately began wondering what it would mean for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential hopes -- and if it's sexist to even ask. "No! No! No, silly billy, of course it's not sexist, even though it's a question that has never, ever been posed to a male candidate ever," Jon Stewart said on "The Daily Show" Tuesday night. "For god sakes, Mitt Romney has like a litter of grandchildren... Mitt Romney has a grandchildren petting zoo." That got Stewart going on how women in politics are treated differently from men, especially when it comes…

    Stephen Colbert paid his first visit to the "Late Show" since CBS announced that he'll be taking over hosting duties from David Letterman next year. "He just stopped by to sign the lease," Letterman said during his monologue on Tuesday night. Letterman said he was "thrilled" that Colbert would be his replacement. "They could have just as easily hired another boob like me," he said. "But they didn't." "They hired a boob like me," Colbert replied. "Every boob is like a snowflake, Dave. We're all unique in our own way." The two then posed for a selfie, which Colbert posted to Twitter with a…

  • What the Pets In Your Online Dating Photo Mean

    22 Apr 2014 | 9:39 am
    Scientific research about whether you should include a pet in your online dating profile pic is, not surprisingly, rather flimsy. According to some studies, a dog in your profile photograph is guaranteed to get the replies rolling on (even if you admit it's not your dog -- in fact, according to some studies, especially if it's just a borrowed dog)... and then, according to other studies (we're using the word "studies" very loosely here, of course), a dog can actually reduce your chances of finding a date. So, we decided to put together our own report on featuring pets. And yes, we're using…
  • Year of the Cat

    22 Apr 2014 | 9:22 am
    Wow, it seems like just yesterday that I was deaf and blind and weighing all of 3 ounces. But alas, that is not the case anymore. I, Tater, just celebrated my first birthday. God, I feel so old even saying that. As I approached this milestone, I found myself getting rather nostalgic and sentimental for my first year on this planet. I've learned so much not only about myself, but about the kind of cat I want to become. It's so easy to get caught in the minutia of the daily hustle and bustle that I wanted to take a moment to slow down and share with you some lessons that have really stood out…
  • Bad Breaks

    22 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    While visiting the Golan Heights in Northern Israel several years ago, I felt the sudden need to relieve myself. Instead of heading back to the bus, though, I went behind some bushes along a cliff overlooking the Syrian border. A communications tower loomed behind me, no doubt casting a watchful eye on Damascus a mere 40 miles away and the entire Middle East. With my right leg literally perched over the edge of the cliff, the thought occurred to me of what the next day's headlines might read should I slip and fall which gave me pause: "Tourist Dies Taking a Leak While Taking a Peek." To add…

    22 Apr 2014 | 8:10 am
    You hear of hatha, vinyasa and Iyengar along with many other styles of yoga. Now there is a new addition to the varieties of yoga experience that is being offered. Cunnilingua yoga is becoming increasingly popular due to the unique positions and postures it employs. Cunnilingua yoga can be performed either by a man and a woman or by two women, but there must always at least be at least one female involved. Your typical cunnilingua yoga session begins with the worshipping of a god and a ritual bath. After the worshipping and purification are complete, the couple lie down on the mat. The woman…

    Bob Cesca
    26 Mar 2014 | 12:17 pm
    I spent most of Saturday hiking up and down the impossibly steep trails of Muir Woods National Monument. The expanse of ancient redwood groves and lush pine forests near San Francisco Bay was set aside in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt and named in honor of the conservationist chiefly responsible for the existence of our National Parks, John Muir, whose tireless campaigning in support of this continent's most scenic natural places inaugurated our government's role in preserving land for the enjoyment of the people, rather than for the exploitation of industry. The National Park Service…

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

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

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

In a 2000 episode titled "The Midterms," the White House hosts a gathering of talk radio announcers and while President Bartlet addresses the group, he notices a "Dr. Laura" type, Dr. Jenna Jacobs, sitting down while every one else in the room are standing out of respect for the chief executive. Bartlet interrupts his remarks to the room and engages Jacobs directly. "I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination," Bartlet snarkily observes. Then he sets about completely decimating the chief…

  • Now Playing First Base for the Yankees

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

    17 Apr 2014 | 6:52 am
    Forty years ago Jerry Brown won a Democratic primary defeating runner up Joseph Alioto, the longtime mayor of San Francisco, soundly. Brown then went on to defeat State Controller Houston Flornoy by a margin of less than three percent. Nationally, 1974 was a Democratic year as the Republican brand was badly tarnished by the Watergate scandal, but in California the scion of the state's most famous Democratic political family was barely able to squeak by to victory. A lot has changed in California politics since then. After going Republican in every presidential election but one between 1952…

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

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

    It is rare that the comments of a state legislator make national news, even more so when those comments are only three short words. Last week, however, State Senator Joshua Miller made national news when he told Dan Bidondi of Infowars to "Go f#ck yourself!" Bidondi, an avid supporter of unrestricted gun ownership had been present at a press conference where Miller and other state legislators appeared. Miller's comments came after Bidondi had been harassing and berating participants at the event. Miller later apologized for using profanity. However, as more information about this…

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

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

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

    The Obama administration continues to push a fast track to nowhere. U.S. Trade Representative Michael B.

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

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

  • Turns Out The Ohio Chrysler Plant Deemed Doomed In 2012 Is Not So Doomed After All

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

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

    Natalia Viana
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:14 am
    The story of 60-year-old builder Altair Antunes Guimarães from Rio de Janeiro, illustrates a "collateral effect" of the mega-events in Rio that has fallen under the radar lately. With the first kick getting nearer -- less than 60 days now! -- people seem to have forgotten the thousands of families who at some point faced eviction to give way for the enlargement, improvement, or establishment of infrastructure for the 1-month tournament. The feeling is that the battles are lost to the construction companies, who indeed profited immensely during the construction of the stadiums -- and that…

    INSOLITE - Ce 23 avril, Barack Obama entame une tournée en Asie, en commençant par le Japon. Et pour son dîner en compagnie du Premier Ministre japonais, Shinzo Abe, le Président américain aura droit à un cadre déroutant : une station du métro de Tokyo. Un lieu inhabituel où il se verra servir les "meilleurs sushis du monde". Car en réalité, le Président se rend chez Jiro Ono, 88 ans, chef triplement étoilé au Guide Michelin et référence mondiale du sushi. Son restaurant, le Sukiyabashi Jiro, se trouve au sous-sol d'un immeuble de bureaux, dans le quartier de Ginza, au détour…

    POLITIQUE - Le 8 mai 1982, François Mitterrand honorait la mémoire de Jeanne d’Arc comme l'avaient fait avant lui Charles de Gaulle et Valérie Giscard d'Estaing. Trente ans plus tard, Nicolas Sarkozy rendait aussi hommage à la "Pucelle d'Orléans", dénonçant le détournement de l'image de Jeanne d'Arc par le FN, qui en a fait un symbole contre les "envahisseurs" étrangers. "Jeanne n'appartient à aucun parti, à aucune faction, à aucun clan", avait dit Nicolas Sarkozy.

Dans un communiqué, le chef de gouvernement turc s'exprime pour la première fois aussi ouvertement sur ce drame survenu entre 1915 et 1917, aux dernières années de l'empire ottoman et qui est reconnu comme un génocide par de nombreux pays. La Turquie, en revanche, ne reconnaît pas le génocide arménien. "C'est un devoir humain de comprendre et de partager…

    Mariah Griffin-Angus
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:54 am
    People sure love their drugs. There are high costs, however, for this international appetite for drugs. And it's usually the poor and disenfranchised who pay these costs. The cost of the global appetite for drugs is high and the burden is disproportionately felt by the poor. It's the man who passes out in front of my apartment on a weekly basis. It's the victims of beheadings in Mexico. It's the families left impoverished while a small, violent elite makes millions. Drugs aren't cool. Or edgy. This is supply and demand at its most brutal and the poor are the ones paying the price. Read more:…

This legislation is ideological but it is also strategically drafted. Creating an escape clause to the general rule, while also leaving "the circumstances" undefined and ambiguous was done so that the legislation would survive a challenge.

    Economic success does not assure peace, but economic failure and disintegration almost assures conflict. It is incumbent on the leaders of the major nations of the world to figure out how to achieve more rapid and sustained economic growth. A commitment to maintain strength, to uphold the international order, is an inherent and deeply-seated part of any successful global system. Great powers can never bluff. When they bluff, when their intentions are uncertain, they are tested. When they are tested, questions arise, and the prospect of conflict mounts. Read more: Economics, War, Larry…
