    This week, President Obama's $3.7 billion request to deal with the border crisis stalled as lawmakers introduced a bill that purportedly aims to help young unaccompanied immigrants but actually just makes it easier to quickly deport them -- a measure Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, dismissed as "the deportation-only agenda dressed up in sheep's clothing." The crisis is certainly a chance to look in the mirror and decide what kind of nation we want to be: one that holds up "return to sender" signs and walks through towns with AR-15 rifles to protest the…

    TEL AVIV, July 23 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Tel Aviv on Wednesday to seek ways of ending the deadliest violence in years between Israel and Gaza's Islamist Hamas. "Secretary Kerry arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel, this morning to meet with officials to discuss the ongoing ceasefire efforts," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. "He will also travel to Jerusalem and the West Bank, and will be meeting with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Palestinian Authority President (Mahmoud) Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu." (Reporting by Arshad…

    Twenty-five years ago, in late 1989, I enrolled in an ulpan or Hebrew immersion program at Mishmar Haemek, a kibbutz in the Jezreel Valley. When I met the kibbutzniks as well as the other students in the ulpan, many of them would ask me two questions. First, they asked if I had graduated from college. The answer was yes.

    It's the middle of summer, which means two things: all over the country people are going on vacation, and Washington, D.C. is a mess. Might part of the reason be that, while most people recognize the benefits of unplugging, recharging, and renewing in the summer, our politicians spend the season tethered to the same hamster wheel, including endless calls and events begging for money? The science is in on what most people already intuitively know -- we perform better, we think better, and we make better decisions when we're refreshed and well-rested. To cite just one example, a study published…

    This week, the spotlight remained on immigration, with President Obama requesting $3.7 billion to deal with the flood of undocumented children crossing the border. As Speaker Boehner fixated on suing the President for delaying the same insurance mandate Boehner has tried to repeal, Glenn Beck announced plans to deliver food, water and toys to the children being held at the border, and the Wall Street Journal denounced the "extreme voices" arguing for impeachment, which included Sarah Palin. When the Journal calls out extremists and Glenn Beck is your voice of reason and compassion, you know…

    As indicações de livros para ler nas férias geralmente têm a ver com escapismo -- mistério, suspense, melodrama, romance --, e devem proporcionar férias de nossa vida cotidiana. Não faltam listas desse tipo. Mas eu gostaria de acrescentar um tipo de livro diferente para sua seleção anual. Embora não seja escapismo, é sobre um distanciamento de nossa vida de trabalho habitual.

    9 Jul 2014 | 6:25 pm
    Summertime-reading recommendations are usually about escapism -- mysteries, thrillers, melodramas, romances -- meant to stand in for vacations from our everyday lives. And there is no shortage of this kind of list. But I'd like to add a different sort of book to your summer-reading queue. While it's not escapism, it is about a departure from our everyday work lives. I'm talking about The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh, which just came out today. Hoffman is the founder of LinkedIn and a partner at Greylock and has made early-stage…

    Over at the Columbia Journalism Review, Steven Brill has a "story he'd like to see." Specifically: What's the deal with "the Hillary alternatives?" You know, those other people who might compete in a Democratic primary in 2016. This is worth some discussion. Among the reasons I can think of that speak to why there isn't block-to-block coverage of other potential Democratic contenders (besides maybe Elizabeth Warren, more on that later) are: 1) it's 2014 at the moment, and maybe people are showing a modicum of restraint, and 2) Hillary Clinton is currently "freezing the field."

  • Sarah Palin Ticketed For Speeding, Cracks A NASCAR Joke

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:57 pm
    Sarah Palin was allegedly caught speeding in Alaska last week, but she has an excuse that's sure to make many of her NASCAR-loving fans smile. "I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying," she joked to TMZ. Records posted online by Alaska's CourtView system show Palin was ticketed by the Wasilla Police Department on July 16 for going 10 to 19 mph over the speed limit, which is listed as a minor offense. TMZ says she was doing 63 mph in a 45 mph zone in a Toyota Tundra pickup truck. The former governor of Alaska joked that her choice in music may have played a role in her speed, telling TMZ that…

  • Can You Hear the Death Rattle of Capital Punishment in California?

    22 Jul 2014 | 8:07 pm
    On July 16, 2014, a federal trial court judge in Santa Ana ruled that the California death penalty system was unconstitutional -- not because actually executing a convicted murderer is cruel and unusual, but because the "inordinate and unpredictable period of delay" before the inmate is executed is a violation of the Eighth Amendment. It was not lost on Federal District Court Judge Cormac J. Carney that it is the appeals brought by the condemned prisoners that (initially, at least) trigger such delays, of over 25 years, on average, from sentence to execution. The old adage of the child who…

    This post has been co-authored with Rabbi Jack Romberg, Temple Israel, Tallahassee, FL. We write this as two friends, a Jew and a Muslim, both with leadership roles in our respective communities. Together we have broken bread, facilitated interfaith dialogue, and come to the realization that we have the same goal of peace, understanding and respect for people of all faiths and backgrounds. The recent spate of violence between Hamas and Israel presents a new test for us. Yet, in the end, even as we might have some disagreement on the details, or in parsing the conflict, we find that we share…
  • The Constant Dread of Defense

    22 Jul 2014 | 6:49 pm
    For years I avoided engaging in discussions about the Israel/Arab situation -- I just didn't want to deal with it. There has and is too much antagonism and ignorance on all sides, it was just not worth it. I'd rather have a beer and talk about hockey. Thus, I would routinely default to "I do have my own opinions, but I don't live there and I didn't serve in the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces), so I don't have a right to express my view." It's not that I haven't thought about the issues, learned a great deal and read about them and even written about them, rather it was just the desire to "not…
  • EPA Takes the Next Critical Step Toward Protecting Wild Salmon and Stopping the Massive Pebble Mine

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:03 pm
    Last Friday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency formally proposed limitations that would block the massive, ill-conceived Pebble Mine project -- the controversial proposal to mine gold and copper at the headwaters of the pristine Bristol Bay wild salmon fishery in Alaska that faces overwhelming local opposition. (Eighty-five percent of commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay, 82 percent of Bristol Bay residents, and 62 percent of Alaskans oppose it.) This action by EPA is a critical step toward protecting Bristol Bay's salmon from the inevitable devastation that a large-scale mine would…

    ATLANTA (AP) — Businessman David Perdue has defeated longtime Rep. Jack Kingston in the Republican runoff for Georgia's U.S. Senate nomination, setting up a matchup against Democratic nominee Michelle Nunn that will help determine which party controls the Senate for the final years of the Obama administration. Tuesday night's primary runoff win validates Perdue's campaign as an outsider. The former CEO of Reebok, Dollar General and the failed textile firm Pillowtex, Perdue offered his private sector record and tremendous wealth as proof that he can help solve the nation's ills in a Congress…

    WASHINGTON, July 22 (Reuters) - U.S. officials have made almost 200 arrests and seized more than $625,000 in illicit profits in a month-long crackdown on human smuggling in response to an influx of illegal immigration into Texas, the Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the campaign underscored the government's pledge that U.S. borders were not open to illegal immigration "and that if you enter the United States illegally, we will send you back." "Equally important, those who prey upon migrants for financial gain will be targeted,…

  • Liberal Nationalism Is Not Only Possible, It's Essential

    22 Jul 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Out of many, one. As important today as ever. "Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind." -- Albert Einstein This is a popular sentiment in certain circles, including among some people for whom I have a great deal of respect. And, without question, nationalism has inspired many of the worst crimes human beings have committed against one another. Nationalism has often been a dangerous thing when it is directed outward, at another group defined as somehow inferior. On the other hand, nationalism can also liberate a people from imperialism, and can encourage an end to…

    22 Jul 2014 | 12:07 pm
    Today, the death toll in the Gaza-Israeli conflict stands above 500 people. In a few short weeks, 500 lives -- at least 100 of them children -- have been added to the death toll of a conflict that goes back much farther than most history books can cover. In the last few days, I've read articles urging the world to remember that war doesn't just affect those in the war, but the world. They are begging for resolution, a cease-fire, humanity. And Israel continues to send tanks into Gaza. And the fighting goes on. And I know tomorrow morning when I check the headlines the death toll will be more…

    When 9/11 happened, I was in the fifth grade. I was ten. I didn't understand the weight of it. I only knew it was horrible. For the next 13 years of my life, I would watch the aftermath and try to understand what happened. Throughout my teens, I would cringe at the report of any other threat, and as a Muslim-American say to myself, "Please, don't let it be a Muslim. Please, not again. Please, not in the name of my religion." Later, as a young adult, while my head focused on reciting the names of all the innocent lives lost in the 9/11 attacks for a memorial ceremony, it also ached for the…

The Sky Tower at Tivoli Friheden in Denmark is a free fall ride with no brakes because there's no vehicle. It's just you, plunging from the top of a 130-foot tower into a net 100 feet below. According to the park's website, you'll experience 4G sensations as your plummeting body hits a top speed of 55 mph. Don't worry. If you get to the top and have second thoughts, the park offers a dignified opportunity to chicken out. "You may also just take the lift to the top and enjoy the view," the website…

  • A New Challenge to the HECM Reverse Mortgage Program

    The United States today faces a retirement funds crisis: a rapidly growing number of persons who are retiring without the financial capacity to support themselves during ever-increasing life spans. The HECM reverse mortgage program, which allows older homeowners to convert some or all of the equity in their homes into cash, ought to be a major policy tool for dealing with the crisis. It is a well-designed program that allows seniors to draw funds in a variety of ways to meet a wide range of problems, but it has been hobbled by major challenges that have kept it small.

  • The Easiest Way to Stop Paying Interest on Credit Card Debt

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:14 pm
    Let's be honest, America is having a credit card debt crisis. We, as a nation, are $11.4 trillion in debt to credit card companies. With fees and interest rates, it can often be difficult to climb out of the hole of credit card debt we created. Luckily, there is a very easy solution to stop paying all of that interest to the credit card companies, and it comes from the most unlikely source ... the credit card companies. How to Avoid Paying Interest on Credit Card Debt We've all heard of balance transfer credit cards, but a surprising number of people don't have any idea how a balance transfer…

  • Two Magic Words - Thank You!

    22 Jul 2014 | 3:26 pm
    Thanking works because it expresses one of our most basic emotions: gratitude. Not an abstraction, gratitude is a genuine emotion. It cannot be exacted or forced. You either feel it or you don't. Yet, when someone does something nice for you, they expect gratitude and they think less of you for withholding it. Think about the last time you gave someone a gift. If they didn't say thank you, how did you feel about them? Great person? Or ungrateful S.O.B.? When someone gives you a gift, you wouldn't say, "Stinky gift!" "Bad gift!" or "I already have this stupid gift!" (Unless you are a real…

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:43 pm
    The purpose of the Women's Bureau was to establish policies to promote the welfare of wage-earning women, improve their working conditions, increase their efficiency, and advance their opportunities. The Bureau was established by the Department of Labor in 1920, the year women won the right to vote and comprised 21% of the gainfully employed in this country. It grew out of an agency named Women in Industry Service which investigated the readjustment women were having after World War I. Like the Women in Industry Service, the Women's Bureau investigated working conditions and industries…
  • Why Marketplace Businesses Don't Have Subscriptions

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:41 pm
    I was on a bike ride deep into Marin recently, and thought to myself, "If I blow a tire, it's going to be a really expensive Uber back home." Then the entrepreneur in me spoke up, "Wouldn't it be awesome if I could sign up for a subscription for rides, regardless of the distance?" That will never happen, of course. Business models are optimized for the needs of the customers they serve. If the business is run any other way, it will fail. For example, imagine if Salesforce.com, the $40 billion company that bills sales teams on a subscription-as-a-service (SaaS) model, acted like a marketplace.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional investigators using fake identities were able to obtain taxpayer-subsidized health insurance under President Barack Obama's law, according to testimony to be delivered Wednesday. The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office says its undercover investigators were able to get subsidized health care under fake names in 11 out of 18 attempts. The GAO is still paying premiums for the policies, even as the Obama administration attempts to verify phony documentation. The agency's findings are contained in testimony to be delivered at a House Ways and Means…

    While shopping in a series of convenience stores, Vine user Rashid Polo realized that something was up: the store employees around him were ostensibly hard at work, bending to rearrange products for sale, busying themselves with drink machines, but they kept popping up wherever he went. This phenomenon was not a new experience for Polo, and no matter where he was or what he was doing, it seemed he was guilty of only one crime: shopping while black. So he came up with the brilliant idea to catch the clerks on camera and uploaded the resulting videos to Vine. "[The employee] been following me…

    22 Jul 2014 | 7:33 pm
    As the White House took steps to accommodate religious nonprofits wanting to opt out of contraception coverage, HBO's "Girls" creator Lena Dunham took to Twitter Tuesday evening with a simple question: The Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling last month dealt a major blow to birth control coverage. At the time, Dunham tweeted her stance that "Women's access to birth control should not be denied because of their employer's religious beliefs." Last week, Eden Foods' CEO revived a case to deny coverage of all birth control from employees’ healthcare plans. Within minutes of Dunham's tweet, both…

Mizruchi, the author of Brando's Smile: His Life, Thought, and Work, debunked that rumor in a recent HuffPost blog, and she stopped by HuffPost Live to share more little-known stories about the film icon. Mizruchi told host Ricky Camilleri that despite legend to the contrary, Brando was committed to his work until his final days. "Brando never gave up on acting. He acted almost until the day he died.

That's not strictly speaking true. What I did was make the first attempt after all parties had weighed in with what they thought her image should be. A few attempts had been made previously to come up with a design at J.J.

    In a world drowning in tweets and likes, it's hard to differentiate the talented from the... not-so-much. Times were simpler in the 90s. There were really only two all-American boy bands, and if you were a teen girl, you picked a side. You were an 'Nsync'er or a Backstreet girl. Now the pop music industry seems to pump every blue-eyed, baby-faced social media star in the faces of teen girls to the point that teens no longer care if the flavor of the month boy is even talented. MAGCon, or Meet And Greet Convention, is a tour that allows fans to meet and greet their favorite social media stars:…

    Some Kind of Wonderful is one of 80s movie-master John Hughes' underrated films. The movie is fun, romantic, and - more importantly - introduced me to tom-boy beauty cutie Mary Stuart Masterson. On a related note, that film's title was also a Grand Funk Railroad hit that still resonates, but a new band who shares a variation on that name and phrase is quickly making me forget about the two. SomeKindaWonderful released their self-titled last month, and it ranks as one of the best debuts I've heard in quite awhile. The L.A.-based band (Matt Gibson, Steve Basil, Jordy Towers, Ben Schigel, and…

(Eighty-five percent of commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay, 82 percent of Bristol Bay residents, and 62 percent of Alaskans oppose it.) This action by EPA is a critical step toward protecting Bristol Bay's salmon from the inevitable devastation that a large-scale mine would…

  • Aussie Households Go Solar: Game-Changer

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:11 pm
    Australia's household solar revolution has caught the government-owned electricity sector by surprise. Join Earth Dr Reese Halter from Los Angeles in another SOS segment as he tells how Australian homeowner are fighting back against climate disruption. More than one million Australians have already installed solar panels on their rooftops. It has caused demand for electricity from the grid to plummet. The race to power Australian homes from the sun has left Prime Minister Tony Abbott's Coalition government speechless. Photo credit: smh.com.au Despite being a sun-rich country, Australian Prime…

    Earlier this year, the U.S. Climate Assessment warned of parched prairies and flaming forests if we don't reel in climate change right now. Sixteen retired US admirals and generals then warned that droughts and other climate disruptions were about to make the world a very dangerous place. Now the United Kingdom's weather service, the Met Office, has tried to put the basic science in a simple, poster-sized product called the Human Dynamics of Climate Change, which you can download here (PDF, 12 MB). Supplementary information is also available here (PDF, 629 kB). The map is actually a teaser to…

  • Hollywood's Dystopian View of Population: Entertaining But Not Realistic

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:08 pm
    Armageddon again? Hollywood continues its investment in a spate of movies and TV shows about the end of the world or some variant thereof. The latest: a Lifetime TV series called The Lottery about the ultimate birth dearth -- a world in which no one is capable of having children -- no way, no how. Obviously, these fictional shows are not meant to depict reality. Entertainment is supposed to be, well, entertaining. And fantastical diversions can be welcome relief from the day-to-day. So, if this appeals to you, enjoy it. Taking off our TV glasses for a moment, is the world heading for collapse…

  • Obama Attributes Wildfires To Climate Change

    22 Jul 2014 | 6:05 pm
    SEATTLE (AP) — President Barack Obama says a wildfire that has burned nearly 400 square miles in the north-central part of Washington state, along with blazes in other Western areas, can be attributed to climate change. Obama, speaking at a fundraiser Tuesday, offered federal help to deal with Washington's wildfire, the largest in the state's history. He said Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Craig Fugate had authorized an emergency declaration to ensure electrical power. Obama has asked Congress for $615 million in emergency spending to fight Western wildfires. He said spending…
  • Crews Make Progress Controlling Largest Fire In Washington State's History

    22 Jul 2014 | 3:04 pm
    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Firefighters made progress Tuesday in their efforts to get the largest wildfire in Washington state's history under control, with wetter weather bringing some relief but also raising concerns about flash flooding. The Carlton Complex of fires, which has burned nearly 400 square miles in the north-central part of the state, was 16 percent contained as of Tuesday, fire spokeswoman Jessica Payne said. A day earlier, the fire was just 2 percent contained. Firefighters and local authorities have been heartened by forecasts that call for cooler temperatures and higher…
  • There Might Be A 16-Foot Anaconda Hiding In This Lake

    JEFFERSON, N.J. (AP) — Reports of a 16-foot-long exotic snake — possibly an anaconda — slithering through New Jersey's largest lake have stoked fears among residents and led to searches and questions about what exactly is in the water. Traps have been set in Lake Hopatcong, while animal control officers and a private reptile expert have been hunting for the snake, first spotted earlier this month. A spokesman for the state's Department of Environmental Protection said there have been no confirmed sightings of the snake and no evidence that it's acutally there. "We've been trying to take…
  • Gravity Explained, In One Simple Video

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:58 pm
    Albert Einstein once described gravity as the warping of space and time in his theory of general relativity. But what exactly does that mean? YouTube personality Edward Current attempts to simplify this theory in a new YouTube video, using a so-called "Spacetime Stretcher," built mostly out of materials from his garage and the hardware store. Check out the video above. "As a falling object's path goes increasingly in the space (down) direction, it goes a little bit less in the time direction," Current wrote in the video's YouTube description. "Gravity is effectively converting some of its…
  • Group Tries To Make Climate Change A Winning Wedge Issue

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:56 pm
    WASHINGTON -- Many nonprofits and issue groups from across the political spectrum score elected officials on their voting records, evaluating whether a politician has sided with them on key votes. But a new environmental group wants to take that ranking a step farther: Disregarding votes on public lands, endangered species and groundwater protections, the group instead evaluates candidates exclusively on one issue -- their leadership on climate change. Climate Hawk Votes has put together a scorecard that rates Democratic House members on how much they've actually done to draw attention to…

  • Illinois Among the Top 10 Worst States for Job Growth Since Recession

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:42 pm
    It's no secret Illinois is having a rough time creating jobs, which arguably will be the foremost important issue when voters head to the polls in November. Nationally, Illinois ranks 42nd for job creation since the end of the Great Recession, according to an Associated Press report and Crain's Chicago Business. In June 2014, Illinois had 5.81 million jobs -- and increase of three percent from 5.64 million in June 2009. Illinois is the eighth-worst since the Great Recession. Here are 10 through six of the worst. See the fifth through number one worst at Reboot Illinois. 10. Vermont Tie - 9.

He has only one film currently scheduled for release this year, "Happy Christmas," a Sundance Film Festival premiere available via on-demand services now before beginning a limited theatrical release on July 25. "I've attempted to make filmmaking into a normal, working class job," Swanberg said during an interview with HuffPost Entertainment at the end of June. "I've tried to turn it into a nine-to-five."

    TEL AVIV, July 23 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Tel Aviv on Wednesday to seek ways of ending the deadliest violence in years between Israel and Gaza's Islamist Hamas. "Secretary Kerry arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel, this morning to meet with officials to discuss the ongoing ceasefire efforts," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. "He will also travel to Jerusalem and the West Bank, and will be meeting with U.N.

  • Sky Tower In Denmark Might Be The Scariest Theme Park Ride Ever

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:38 pm
    This just might be the simplest idea for a theme park ride... and also the most frightening. The Sky Tower at Tivoli Friheden in Denmark is a free fall ride with no brakes because there's no vehicle. It's just you, plunging from the top of a 130-foot tower into a net 100 feet below. According to the park's website, you'll experience 4G sensations as your plummeting body hits a top speed of 55 mph. Don't worry. If you get to the top and have second thoughts, the park offers a dignified opportunity to chicken out. "You may also just take the lift to the top and enjoy the view," the website…

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:09 pm
    When there is a military objective, there is very rarely "proportionality." The lack of proportionality is what losers use to explain their defeat. In the current Hamas-Israel war, the concept of proportionality has become a front-and-center issue. The score is kept by the number of dead and wounded, with a particular emphasis on the number of women and children. A recent episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart featured two war correspondents and their contrasting on-air dress (the correspondent in Israel in spotless casual cloths, the Gaza one in battle gear) as an example of the…

    22 Jul 2014 | 4:28 pm
    Israel and the Arab world share a rare and brief window of opportunity -- even of necessity -- for salvaging a two-state solution to the Palestinian issue. The Arab Peace Initiative (API) offers a regional peace when Israel concludes a permanent agreement with the Palestinians. As hostilities and recrimination sweep the Israeli-Palestinian landscape and the wider region, activating the API is both possible and urgent. There will never be a perfect moment. The Arab League's 2002 launch of the API coincided with a wave of Palestinian suicide bombings inside Israel, followed by a major Israeli…

Is there the slightest doubt that the President would order a strike to destroy the missiles? Absolutely not. One missile hitting the homeland would rightly spark an overwhelming American military response. Yet this is the reality that Israel faces every day -- contrary to the proliferation of anti-Israel media reports in the U.S. and Europe.

    As a child of the '70s, I considered Han Solo the epitome of manhood. Fiercely independent, yet secretly sentimental. Skeptical, but willing to believe in magic if he saw it with his own eyes. Secure enough in his own skin to pursue a princess, but not above taking a wide-eyed farm boy under his wing. Best friends with a Wookiee. A lovable scoundrel who posed as a mercenary, but who deep down realized that the best things in life are free. In short -- the ideal dad. And while Obi-Wan Kenobi was a superb mentor and (spoiler alert!) Darth Vader achieved redemption in the end, it was Han Solo…

Having four days [off] would be very important to generate new entertainment activities and other ways of being occupied." I concur, Mr. Slim.

  • The 'Seinfeld' Emoji Are Here, And They're Spectacular

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:48 pm
    No wait for you! The "Seinfeld" emoji have arrived! Earlier this month, it was announced that the guys behind the Seinfeld2000 Twitter and Instagram accounts developed a new set of emoji inspired by the show, and now they're here and available for a free download on iTunes. Giddy up! Technically these aren't traditional emoji since they're currently available through an app rather than your iPhone’s keyboard; however, you can still write out the message you want, save it and then post to social media or text, according to Death and Taxes. Android support will reportedly be added if demand…
  • Everything You Can't Do When You're Not A Toddler

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:46 pm
    Walking around naked, adding "and a half" to your age and throwing your entire body on the floor when you discover there is only one cookie left -- these are just a few examples of the many glorious things you can really only get away with when you're under the age of 5. And anyone who has spent a significant amount of time with a toddler has likely imagined what it would be like to follow that tiny person's lead, though. Now, in a video made for NickMom's "Things You Can't Do" series, comedy duo Tripp and Tyler show us what would happen if an adult man played toddler for the night. At a…
  • This A Cappella Medley Is Truly 'Wicked'

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:34 pm
    It doesn't matter whether or not you're a fan of the musical "Wicked" -- after listening to this medley, you'll feel like you can ... defy gravity. Simply put, this video from Peter Hollens is an example of a cappella done so, so right. In an email to The Huffington Post, Hollens discussed why he chose "Wicked" as his current project. "I've been waiting for the perfect medley and moving parts to finally work on my favorite musical of all time," he wrote. "And Nick Pitera has been waiting for years to do it as well -- we thought working together would be the perfect combination." And it is.
  • Vine User Blasts Employees Following Him Around Stores In Best Possible Way

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:20 pm
    While shopping in a series of convenience stores, Vine user Rashid Polo realized that something was up: the store employees around him were ostensibly hard at work, bending to rearrange products for sale, busying themselves with drink machines, but they kept popping up wherever he went. This phenomenon was not a new experience for Polo, and no matter where he was or what he was doing, it seemed he was guilty of only one crime: shopping while black. So he came up with the brilliant idea to catch the clerks on camera and uploaded the resulting videos to Vine. "[The employee] been following me…

  • 30 Things Only Dog Owners Understand

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    15 Jul 2014 | 4:03 am
    As someone who's volunteered in animal rescue for over 10 years -- and has been a foster and adoptive parent to lots of dogs over the years -- I feel like I'm constantly reminded of how dogs bring alive the Third Metric values of well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving. They bring us joy. They keep us in the present moment. They make us laugh. They touch our hearts in the most unique way. Those of us who have canine members in our family experience an abundance of the unique ways that dogs have an impact on our daily lives. At a dog park, a fundraiser, an animal shelter or in line buying dog…
  • Reduce Stress and Really Thrive by Bringing Mindfulness to This

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    13 Jun 2014 | 5:33 am
    "A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit." -- Proverbs 15:4 It is encouraging to see the practice of mindfulness penetrating the culture. It is a graceful antidote to the unconscious, knee-jerk reaction way of living. Our over-stimulated society has drawn us away from our inner life, and the principles of mindfulness are helping us to forge a way back. Mindfulness is the experience of being fully present, bringing your attention to the present moment. When I bring up the subject of mindfulness to my patients, I find that many of them associate the concept…
  • Apparently, You Can Teach an (17-Year) Old Dog New Tricks

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    17 Jan 2014 | 5:42 am
    One of the most common questions I receive from people who know that I volunteer at my local animal shelter is, "Don't you just want to take them all home?" Reasonable question. The answer is: I want to do as much as I can to help them get adopted, and we have a crew of rescues at home, so I just try to stay focused on helping the animals get adopted and rescued. In over a decade of volunteering, I've never taken a dog home that I met during my volunteer shift. Until one day... I showed up at the shelter on a Sunday afternoon, and one of the most dedicated volunteers ever was holding a little…
  • It's Time for Women to Pay More Attention to This Health Concern

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    27 Aug 2013 | 7:35 am
    If you ask an American woman to list her concerns about disease, breast cancer will almost invariably rank high. Breast cancer awareness in this country is an institution, serving as a banner for the largest series of 5K runs in the world (Race for the Cure) and claiming the month of October for fundraising against the disease across the country. During that month every year, pink ribbons adorn the lapels of politicians and are emblazoned on celebrity T-shirts, and even corporations not exactly associated with health such as Kentucky Fried Chicken line up to sponsor the cause. Many people…
  • Is Your Stress Response Stuck in the 'On' Position?

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    28 Mar 2013 | 5:58 am
    Most of us live in a world with so much comfort compared to our ancestors. Want that double latte with 2 percent milk? Skim? How about almond milk? Maybe soy? Can't remember who was the 16th president of the United States? Don't waste time trying to jog your memory or discuss with friends. You can find the answer in seconds by, you guessed it, Googling it. Lonely? Don't forget, you have hundreds of Facebook friends to reach out to. Is the room a little chilly? Turn up the heat. A little too hot? Get the A/C going. In the mood for a green sweater with black buttons? Don't spend time going from…

  • PepsiCo's Female CEO Says You Can't Be A Good Mom and Leader -- You Can

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

    Bonnie Fuller
    30 Jun 2014 | 8:15 am
    Matt Lauer, you are surrounded by strong women on the Today show, so why would you even think of asking Mary Barra if she could be a good mom if she's a CEO? Matt Lauer, when you asked CEO Mary Barra on the Today show on June 26 if she could run General Motors and still be a good mom, it sounded like a sexist insult. After all, virtually all the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are men, and have you ever asked any of them if they can be good dads and CEOs? I don't think so. That's why you've been the subject of scathing criticism ever since you interviewed Mary in Detroit and had the…

    11 Jun 2014 | 2:34 pm
    Hillary Clinton: Has there ever been a potential presidential candidate who has already taken incredible heat and yet proven triumphant? Here's why the author of Hard Choices, should be our next president. 1. Hillary Rodham Clinton Would Be a Fabulous President BECAUSE She's a Woman You know that phrase, "When you're number two, you always try harder?" Well, sadly, it's still true that women are the second sex in this country. Women make up more of the overall population than men -- 161 million versus 156.1 million -- and received 25 percent more of the college degrees than men in…
  • 'My Five Wives' Premiere Proves Polygamist Wives are Sad and Lonely

    Bonnie Fuller
    10 Mar 2014 | 8:38 am
    Why oh why do supposedly modern women get conned into sharing their husband with several other wives? There's no compelling reason why Brady Williams' five wives have given up the love of a monogamous soulmate in TLC's new show, 'My Five Wives.' Here's the deal. My Five Wives star, Brady Williams, claims that going public about his polygamous lifestyle with five wives is "liberating," and yeah, maybe sex with five wives is better than one. But marriage for his attractive harem seems anything but fun and freeing. 'My Fives Wives' Premiere Recap: Wives Are Sadder And Lonelier Than Kody Brown's…
  • Rachel Canning: Her Parents Should Be Fighting to Bring Her Home

    Bonnie Fuller
    8 Mar 2014 | 1:02 pm
    I know my opinion is not going to be popular, but here goes -- Sean and Elizabeth Canning are the adults and the parents in this relationship. They need to work harder than an 18-year-old to mend their family fences. Rachel Canning has been called a "spoiled brat" who's suffering from "affluenza" because she is suing her estranged parents for high school and college tuition and support. I agree that she may feel "entitled," but I also think it's ridiculous that her parents have allowed her to live at a friend's home for over four months without making serious efforts to repair their…

  • GOP Continues Push for Frivolous Obama Lawsuit Despite History of Executive Orders

    Bob Cesca
    1 Jul 2014 | 5:24 am
    Last week, we brought you the story of the latest unprecedented congressional Republican weapon against the White House: the frivolous lawsuit. Specifically, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is considering legal action to overturn the president's executive orders (EOs) in spite of the fact that every president since George Washington has used executive orders to enact policies and implement congressional legislation, among other things. Since then, there have been a lot of tweets, memes and online discussions about how President Obama has issued considerably fewer EOs than nearly every…
  • Let's Call 'Open Carry' Gun Gangs What They Are

    Bob Cesca
    26 Jun 2014 | 12:27 pm
    On Monday, the Houston chapter of Open Carry Texas had originally planned an armed march into the Fifth Ward, a predominantly African-American community. The group canceled the event because, they say, one of the members was committed to a previously scheduled event elsewhere. Canceling the march was probably fortuitous because what could possibly have gone wrong? A gaggle of white, paleoconservative rednecks with military-style rifles strapped to their chests marching through an African-American neighborhood is never a recipe for harrowing consequences. But seriously, while they're not in…
  • This Is One of the Craziest Fox News Rants Ever, and It's Not Hannity or O'Reilly

    Bob Cesca
    24 Jun 2014 | 5:06 am
    Judge Jeanine Pirro's television career began as the host of a reality courtroom show not unlike Judge Judy or any of the dozens of other knockoffs. But for the last few years, she's become a regular contributor to NBC's Today as well as the host of Justice with Judge Jeanine, Saturday nights on Fox News Channel. Frankly, we hadn't heard of her until this past weekend when she delivered a rant about President Obama and the fiasco in Iraq. Based on the reactions online and in social media, the segment has elevated her within the hierarchy of sociopathic rogues, screechers and former morning…
  • Desperate Mitch McConnell Gets Slippery on Obamacare

    Bob Cesca
    2 Jun 2014 | 3:37 pm
    As time wears on, the following prediction will seem less like science fiction and more like science fact: The Republicans will eventually try to take credit for the Affordable Care Act. The fact that it's proving itself to be increasingly successful, along with the reality that much of the law was originally conceived by Republicans, makes it absolutely ripe for the plucking. Indeed, it wouldn't be surprising if, in 10 years or so, the Republicans were to not only claim credit, but also to campaign on preserving it. Keep your government hands off of our blah, blah blah! Clearly, they won't…
  • The 13 Most Bizarre Things From Edward Snowden's NBC News Interview

    Bob Cesca
    31 May 2014 | 12:53 pm
    While watching Brian Williams' interview with Ed Snowden, I actually agreed with Glenn Greenwald about something. Back in 2012, Greenwald referred to Williams as "NBC News' top hagiographer," using "his reverent, soothing, self-important baritone" to deliver information in its "purest, most propagandistic and most subservient form." It's worth noting at the outset that Greenwald flew all the way to Moscow specifically for the NBC News interview, and he appeared on camera with Snowden and Williams, answering questions from this so-called "hagiographer." Now, I'm not a Brian Williams hater. I…

  • Will the Giants Improve Their Bench?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    22 Jul 2014 | 12:40 pm
    After a charmed first half of the season, the San Francisco Giants stumbled badly from roughly June 9 until the All Star Break. They have played reasonably well since the All Star Break, winning three of four and are now back in first place in the NL West. However, the last few days have also brought some bad news to the Giants as star pitcher Matt Cain and first baseman Brandon Belt were placed on the disabled list. To replace Belt on the roster, the Giants brought up Adam Duvall a journeyman minor leaguer who made his big league debut only a few weeks ago at age 25, but was quickly sent…
  • Six Californias: Conservative Plan, Techie Self-Indulgence or Both?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Jul 2014 | 9:01 am
    In November of 2016, voters in California will vote on whether or not to divide the state into six different states. If the Six Californias, as this proposal is being called, initiative passes, nothing will happen right away. Creating new states requires action by Congress and cannot simply be done by the people of a given state.The initiative is the brainchild of Tim Draper, a wealthy California venture capitalist. Without Draper's money, the proposal would not have received enough signatures to make it onto the ballot. Presumably, Draper will continue to support the initiative during the…
  • The World Cup and Baseball

    Lincoln Mitchell
    16 Jul 2014 | 10:46 am
    The World Cup is an important global event in which the US usually plays a very peripheral role. That was certainly the case this year as the US made it out of their group but lost in the Round of 16. The World Cup inevitably draws contrasts between soccer's global even universal popularity and the American people's stubborn preference for baseball. This is, of course, a false contrast as baseball is popular in much of East Asia, the Caribbean and increasingly in a few other countries besides the US. Soccer, while the world's most popular sport has failed to catch on in many parts of South…
  • How the Republicans Could -- But Won't -- Beat Hillary Clinton in 2016

    Lincoln Mitchell
    11 Jul 2014 | 11:42 am
    Hillary Clinton's increasingly likely candidacy for president in 2016 must be extremely frustrating for Republican strategists. Clinton is a strong candidate, but she is not invincible. If Clinton runs, she will face nominal opposition within her own party, but obviously a Republican will run against her. The most recent polls show her defeating any Republican challenger by between 7 to 9 points. What makes Clinton's candidacy frustrating for Republicans is that while the formulas for beating her are relatively straightforward, the party is unable to implement them. Much of Clinton's strength…
  • Billy Beane and the New Moneyball

    Lincoln Mitchell
    11 Jul 2014 | 9:06 am
    The term "Moneyball" is used to represent a number of different things in baseball. Critics use it as shorthand for an overly statistical analysis of the game that overlooks the human side of baseball. For others, "Moneyball" refers more generally to statistically sophisticated approaches to understanding baseball. The term is also sometimes is used to describe a style of baseball that values on base percentage, walks and home runs more than batting average and making contact. Michael Lewis' 2003 book Moneyball, which brought the term to baseball, is primarily about none of these things. It…

  • Hillary's Hard Choice

    Robert L. Borosage
    26 Jun 2014 | 10:45 am
    The launch of Hillary Clinton's yet undeclared candidacy for president -- in the form of the roll-out of her memoir, Hard Choices, an astounding two and a half years prior to the election -- has been marked by big media and silly gaffes. Tin eared and thin-skinned, Clinton, unlike her husband, has never been a "natural" as a candidate. She campaigns in prose, not poetry, crouched in a cautious, defensive posture that reveals the burdens, not the joys of the stump. But the efforts of Republicans -- and some Obama aides -- to use Clinton's inept comments about the family's wealth to paint her…
  • The Lousy Economy: Washington's Failure

    Robert L. Borosage
    30 May 2014 | 9:23 am
    The U.S. economy contracted in the first three months of 2014, according to revised figures issued by the Commerce Department, declining at an annual rate of 1 percent. With the economy expected to bounce back in the second quarter -- April to June -- the downturn received little attention, dismissed as "a hiccup, not a heart attack." But at Republican campaign committee headquarters, Champagne bottles surely were popped in celebration. The Republican strategy of obstructing any measure that would put people back to work is succeeding. More than 20 million people are in need of full-time…

    "The game is rigged and the American people know that. They get it right down to their toes." -- Senator Elizabeth Warren This week, the House Ways and Means Committee is poised to demonstrate exactly how the rules get rigged. Beginning on Tuesday, the committee will mark up a series of bills on corporate tax breaks -- known as "extenders" because they have been extended regularly every year or two for over a decade. Only now the Committee plans to make many of them permanent, at the cost of an estimated $300 billion over 10 years. And it does not plan to pay for them by closing other…
  • This Is Who They Are: The Republican Budget Vote

    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…

    Robert L. Borosage
    12 Mar 2014 | 7:41 am
    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…

You know, those other people who might compete in a Democratic primary in 2016. Brill writes: Can it really be such a certainty that Hillary Clinton is going to be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016 that the media is taking the right approach in essentially ignoring other possible Democratic candidates? In any other situation we would be seeing profiles of a half dozen or more alternatives. But not now. Yet there has to be some…

Well, over at The Washington Post, The Fix hooks you up with "The 10 things you need to know about Julian Castro." This must be a misprint, because the article goes on to relate 10 very inessential and/or inconsequential things about Castro. For example, did you know that he has a twin brother?

    Good news for people who hate lawmakers giving themselves three-day weekends on the regular! According to Politico, should the Republicans win back the Senate in 2014, they "are vowing to reinstate the five-day workweek." It's a supreme sacrifice that would leave the U.S. Senate with the same workweek as many normal human Americans -- at least the ones who haven't been cowed by their employers into giving up their weekends, which is a new thing that some lawmakers want to help facilitate. There are a lot of schools of thought on whether or not lawmakers should spend more time in Washington,…

    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.

    I'd been writing novels and literary nonfiction for twenty years before I dared to write a memoir about my flight from my evangelical past. That book became the bestselling CRAZY FOR GOD: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back. I'd been so out of touch with the evangelical world that I'd lost track of the players. Put it this way: I'd never heard of Rob Bell. I was expecting a backlash from the sort of people I'd worked with. I was only half joking when I told my wife Genie, "Pat Robertson will have me killed." I'd…

Only there is another side to all this that I -- as a mid-level author of more than a dozen books and several best-sellers -- would like to offer. I love Amazon and here's why.

    Another blow. More innocents slaughtered. Another bloody act in a land scorched by perpetual division. And another reminder that even the most seemingly justified acts can threaten to overwhelm all in a holocaust of dumb, deadly hatred. And what do Jews do? One thing they shouldn't do is act like all those who would visit misery upon them, not behave like those of lesser character, of lesser intellect, of lesser sense, to not regress into however justifiably violent a response to the unimaginably awful fate suffered by innocent children at the hands of animals. Because an eye for an eye, even…

    The world, it seems, is ugly. One could argue that it's always been; one could also argue that never more than in modern history has that ugliness been given such free rein, spurred perhaps by a detachment from responsibility for one's fellow, by the sheer effort selflessness seems to require; spurred perhaps by a culture's dependence on the physical rather than the spiritual, by the twice election of a black president, the living embodiment of the scary dark nights which haunt the white tribal imagination. Yes, the good vs. evil dynamic has been at play since God first created The Big Bang…

Why, she asked incredulously, participate in something that had no real commercial potential?

That shocked me. Certainly there's a market out there for professional lugers or people who…

  • Geht er für immer? "Bommel" alias Merlin Leonhardt verlässt "GZSZ"

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:28 am
    Es bleibt ein Kommen und Gehen beim RTL-Dauerbrenner "Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten" ("GZSZ"): "Bommel" alias Merlin Leonhardt (25) hat die Serie verlassen.

  • CDU-Außenexperte Wellmann: MH17-Abschuss war "vorsätzlicher Massenmord"

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:14 am
    Für viele im Westen steht nach dem Absturz der Passagiermaschine MH17 in der Ostukraine der Schuldige seit Tagen fest: Wladimir Putin. Trotz der jüngsten Erkenntnisse US-amerikanischer Geheimdienste sehen auch deutsche Politiker eine Verantwortlichkeit beim russischen Präsidenten. "Es gab sicherlich keinen Befehl aus dem Kreml, dieses Flugzeug abzuschießen. Aber wer die Separatisten mit schweren Waffen und moderner Flugabwehrtechnik ausrüstet, muss damit rechnen, dass das passiert", sagte CDU-Außenpolitiker Karl-Georg Wellmann der Huffington Post. Putin trage daher eindeutig eine…

    Mats Hummels Freundin Cathy Fischer (26) ist der Ruhm ihres Partners nicht wichtig. "Mich interessiert nicht, dass Mats ein erfolgreicher Fußballer ist, mich interessiert der Mensch", sagte sie der Zeitschrift "Grazia". "Wenn er Bauarbeiter wäre, wäre das auch okay." Die Freundin des Weltmeisters und Borussia-Dortmund-Stars hatte während der Fußball-WM eine Kolumne im Internet und musste dafür viel Spott einstecken. Sie selbst könne damit umgehen, aber für ihre Familie sei es nicht leicht gewesen. Ihr größter Fehler sei wohl gewesen, dass sie einfach drauf los geplappert habe. "Da…

However, opaqueness surrounds this support; the total investment of the U.S. embassy in the training was only revealed now -- U.S.$ 2,2 million over the past 2 years. The deal was never publicized in full, and many questions remain. The Ministry of Justice is yet to explain for instance, how many courses were funded by the U.S., and who were the trainers -- U.S. military?

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:09 am
    Il me vient souvent à l'esprit ce fantastique dessin de Vloutch lorsqu'on me parle des accords entre les mets et les vins: "Je cherche un vin qui se marie bien avec une très très très mauvaise nouvelle que je dois annoncer à ma femme." ("Le doute est partout", éditions du Cherche-Midi, 2007). Ceci pour dire que ces accords ne résultent pas d'une science exacte. L'ambiance et la bonne compagnie comptent pour beaucoup. Le meilleur vin du monde dégusté avec votre contrôleur fiscal à l'occasion d'un redressement ne vous laissera qu'un goût amer. Par contre, entouré de ses meilleurs…
  • La montre intelligente Ritot projette les messages et notifications sur la main

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:07 am
    TECHNOLOGIE - La smartwatch est devenue le nouvel accessoire à posséder. Ces bijoux de technologie font l'actualité depuis des mois. Une curiosité accrue par la sortie prochaine de iWatch d'Apple. Pourtant, l'accueil des consommateurs est timide, les horlogers traditionnels y croient peu. La solution est peut-être de se démarquer des concurrents avec des fonctionnalités encore jamais vues ailleurs que dans la fiction. Un besoin de renouvellement s'est déjà fait sentir dans ce tout jeune marché. Ritot l'a vu. Cette start up californienne a créé une smartwatch tout à fait hors du…
  • "Bouclier humain" à Gaza, la défense mensongère d'Israël

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:00 am
    Publié dans The Guardian, l'activiste politique Richard Seymour écrit dans un article intitulé "Dans un hôpital. À la plage. Le Hamas, Israël nous dit, se cache parmi les civils". L'auteur écrit : "Ils se sont cachés à l'hôpital El-Wafa. Ils se sont cachés à l'hôpital Al-Aqsa. Ils se sont cachés à la plage, où les enfants jouaient au football. Ils se sont cachés dans la cour de Muhammad Hamad, 75 ans. Ils se sont cachés dans les quartiers résidentiels de Shujaya. Ils se sont cachés dans les quartiers de Zaytoun et Toffah. Ils se sont cachés dans Rafah et Khan Younis. Ils…
  • Terroristes en deçà, activistes au-delà

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:53 am
    Merah et Nemmouche sont des terroristes. Les hommes du Jihad Islamiste, du Hamas et autres dont ils sont issus, sont des activistes voire des résistants! Pourtant ce sont des mêmes hommes avec les mêmes objectifs dont il s'agit. L'embargo militaire dont la France et les USA s'étaient engagé à assurer la surveillance électronique à partir du Sinaï en 2009 devait empêcher le réarmement du Hamas en missiles. Même mission que celle de la FINUL au Liban après 2006. Bravo pour les performances, on voit des centaines de missiles partir de Gaza intentionnellement sur les centres urbains…
  • VIDÉO. Gaza : à chaque média sa vérité

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:51 am
    TÉLÉVISION - Le récit médiatique de l'intervention militaire israélienne à Gaza peut varier, d'un pays à l'autre, selon une sensibilité pro-palestinienne ou pro-israélienne, plus ou moins affirmée. Pour mieux s'en rendre compte, notre rendez-vous vidéo, Ce qu'il ne fallait pas rater, a comparé les commentaires des journaux télévisés francophones de Canal Algérie, télévision d'État et ceux de i24News, chaîne d'info israélienne. Et force est de constater que presque tout les oppose. Terroristes ou soldats, mission ou extermination, intervention ou agression, saccages ou…

Esta decisión significa el revés más duro a la Ley del Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio, que supone ser la carta de triunfo de Barack Obama en su segundo mandato. La ley, de acuerdo con el argumento de la demanda, sólo debe permitir el subsidio federal a personas que residen en aquellos estados en los que se toma en cuenta los recursos de los mercados estatales de seguros médicos.

    What if I told you that the most pertinent social science subject -- one that affects every single one of us every single day -- is taught to only a select few? That would be absurd, right?

    15 Jul 2014 | 2:12 am
    It's taken a long time for Germany and Japan to recover from the Second World War. After enduring the indignity of military occupation, they regained sovereignty only by guaranteeing against future threats to peace. Germany's new constitution only authorized military force in self-defense or in collaboration with collective security agreements. Japan's Article Nine went further, "forever renounc[ing] ... the threat or use of force as a means of settling international disputes." But this post-war settlement is unraveling before our eyes.

    Rep. Mike Honda
    21 Jul 2014 | 10:21 am
    There are steps we can take right now to address this growing gap. The first is to raise our minimum wage to a living wage. No one who works full time should have to live in poverty. Increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 would lift millions out of poverty, ease some of the burden on our social safety net, and put more money into our local economy.
