    This week we saw how dissimilar appeals to our better and lesser angels look. For the former, there was Jimmy Carter's grace-filled press conference on Thursday revealing that cancer has spread to his brain. He reflected proudly on the work of his Carter Center, which, among many other things, has nearly eradicated the misery-causing guinea worm disease. But the week began very differently, as Donald Trump released an immigration plan that would end birthright citizenship, a proposal that would involve reverting to before the 14th amendment, ratified in 1868 to grant freed slaves citizenship…

    Generation Y, Yoani Sanchez, 28 August 2015 -- Undone, with the sparks of short circuits clouding his vision and the cabin smashed into smithereens, Voltus V faced the worst end against a fearsome enemy. However, at the last minute, he drew his sword and in a clean cut slew his enemy. Japanese anime, so popular on the island during the eighties, seems to have inspired the Cuban authorities in their tendencies to hold off on certain solutions until a problem has already resulted in the worst ravages. This has happened with the recent announcement that, as of this coming September 15, a…

  • Black Box Voting: Voter Intimidation

    Hard to believe, but true. Voters are flat-out intimidated to come to the polls. During the 2014 midterms, incumbent Mitch McConnell sent out warnings to Kentucky voters that read: ELECTION VIOLATION NOTICE. You are at risk of acting on fraudulent information that has been targeted for citizens living in County_____." If you read further, you find that, "This document serves as a notification that you, as a resident of Kentucky and a registered voter in the aforementioned Commonwealth of fraudulent information that is being deliberately spread to voters in your area," then goes on to list the…

  • My Q and A With Petteri Lahtela, Whose OURA Ring Will Track Your Sleep

    Arianna Huffington
    19 Aug 2015 | 1:36 pm
    Petteri Lahtela is the CEO and co-founder of OURA, a wearable device -- in the form of a waterproof ring -- that measures our well-being as we sleep. In answer to my questions, he shared his insights on the restorative power of sleep, the future of sleep technology, and how wearable devices can enhance the body-mind connection. What is the OURA ring, and why did you see a need for it? Our goal was to create a simple and comfortable way for people to learn how to be fully charged at the start of every day, feel well and be ready to perform at their best. We needed to gain a long-term view on…

    I have a particular fondness for comedians, and have had close personal friendships with some of the great ones over the years. Even as a teenager in the 1960s, my favorite reading material was not comic books, but rather biographies and autobiographies of comics-- W.C Fields, Jack Benny, George Burns, Steve Allen, Groucho Marx, Red Skelton, Woody Allen, and many others, all of which I still have in my library. I also have maintained a collection of volumes of one-liners by Robert Orben, Joey Adams, and other comedy writers. I want to introduce you to a comedian who I have never met, but with…

"What's that?" he asks, but he cuts me off by pointing a finger to starboard. "Look - there's a whale!" I get a mediocre picture, follow the whale for awhile, and then stare at the horizon to make sure he won't make another appearance. I continue the conversation I started before we got "whale distracted." I tell Mike my incredibly lofty goals for the day: "I want to do an inch on my knitting. I want to get a good start…
  • Top 7 Reasons I Haven't Jumped Out a Window From Katrina 10 Coverage

    28 Aug 2015 | 9:09 pm
    1) I live on the first floor, so there would be no point. Pre-Katrina my husband Jeff and I lived on the second floor. Then we lived in Illinois, second floor again, while my parents both succumbed to the long goodbye of Alzheimer's Disease. Then we shared a house with Dr. John while everybody was making it back to the city. Now we live in the French Quarter in a Creole cottage that I leave as little as possible. Having the bottom drop out of life turns you into a couch-hugger once you find a couch that tends to remain in place. It's a long story. 2) The stories from New Orleans still need to…

  • End Gun Violence by Repealing Not Enacting Legislation

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:50 pm
    I have no doubt that some additional legislation, such as background checks, will help stem the tide of this endless gun violence. But the real answer is in repealing existing legislation -- the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. Congress has chosen to immunize from liability (not companies or individuals who engage in life-saving activities or products), but those who make a product designed to injure and kill people. Yes, there are some exceptions, but the rationale for the legislation primarily was that the industry was being sued; the litigation was costing them money, and they…
  • After the Storm, Schools Rise Again

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:11 pm
    Akili Academy of New Orleans looks in many ways like a new school, with its bright white walls, long-tinted window panes and a shining banner announcing the school's name. But that's just the new wing. The heart of Akili Academy is the other half of the school -- a perfectly renovated building with freshly polished wood floors and desks. Inside this wing is a very special classroom, Room 2306, also known as the Ruby Bridges Room. In 1960, when Akili Academy was William Frantz Elementary, 6-year-old Ruby Bridges, escorted by National Guardsmen, bravely walked past racist protestors to exercise…
  • Unions Plot Major Push After Landmark Labor Ruling

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:01 pm
    By Nathan Layne and Mica Rosenberg Aug 28 (Reuters) - U.S. union leaders said on Friday that a landmark U.S. labor board ruling on companies' obligations toward contract and franchise workers would help them organize manufacturers and e-commerce companies as well as fast food chains. On Thursday the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled the owner of a California recycling plant was a "joint employer" with the contractor that hired workers at the plant, essentially forcing both to bargain with the union together or risk violating U.S. labor law. Business groups, arguing that the ruling…
  • Weekend Roundup: Refugees and Market Woes Put World on Edge

    The undertow of China's slackening economy and the mounting tide of refugees pushing through border after border in Europe put the world on edge this week. After spiraling down, volatile stock markets rallied back, for now. . . Writing from Beijing, Fred Hu argues that what we are witnessing is China's shift toward the "new normal" of a slower growth paradigm focused on domestic consumption instead of investment and export-led growth. He expresses confidence that his country will weather the storm, writing, "it is a loser's game to bet against China's leaders." Nobel laureate Michael Spence…

  • Friday Talking Points -- Every Sulfurous Belch

    28 Aug 2015 | 5:43 pm
    OK, I fully admit I stole that title. Well, maybe not "stole," since I'm about to give it proper credit, but it certainly wasn't my own original idea. The line comes from George Will, and (of course) refers to Donald Trump. Part of the fun for Democrats this summer has been watching the angst of serious-minded conservative columnists as they realize how large a portion of the Republican base doesn't really care what serious-minded conservatives inside the Beltway think about much of anything. Will was the best (but by no means only) example of this last week, as he started his column off with…

  • California Climate Bills Could Set A High Bar For The Rest Of The Country

    28 Aug 2015 | 5:17 pm
    As states prepare to develop plans for meeting new greenhouse gas standards from the Environmental Protection Agency, they might look to California as an example of what's possible. Right now, the California legislature is considering two bills, SB 32 and 350, which would allow the state to meet interim climate goals that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) established through an executive order in April. Brown's order calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, a stopping point along the path to reaching an 80 percent cut by 2050 -- a goal scientists have…

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said on Friday that he is open to changing the United States' birthright citizenship policy, marking a reversal from his past remarks on the issue. During an interview, conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt asked the Republican presidential hopeful about the current debate over the 14th Amendment, which grants American citizenship to any individual born on U.S. soil.  "Yesterday, Marco Rubio said he wouldn't support a law to abrogate birthright citizenship. But you would, to be clear?" Hewitt asked.  "I would, because I think that when…

    On Aug. 28, 2008, Barack Obama, then a senator from Illinois, accepted the Democratic nomination for president in Denver. In his speech, he made a lot of promises about what he would do as president of the United States. Seven years later, we looked at how he's keeping up with those promises. Environment "For the sake of our economy, our security, and the future of our planet, I will set a clear goal as president: In 10 years, we will finally end our dependence on oil from the Middle East." While the United States' dependence on foreign oil has been declining since 2005, the United…

  • 'Playing Possum' Helped Victim Survive On-Air TV Shooting

     ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — The woman who survived the on-air shooting that killed two TV journalists says she never saw the gunman walk up to the group because the camera's bright light blinded her. Vicki Gardner, a chamber of commerce official, was answering questions about the community on live TV when the gunfire erupted. She was wounded as she fell to the ground after hearing the first gunshots, her husband said Friday.

In her column on Thursday, The Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan cited a conversation with a Dominican friend to explain why she thinks Trump's "staying power in the polls reflects a change in the electorate."  Something is going on, some tectonic plates are moving in interesting ways. My…
  • Rebekah Brooks Returning To News Corp After Phone-Hacking Scandal

    LONDON, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Rebekah Brooks will return to her old job heading Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper division, according to the Financial Times and New York Times, just over a year after being cleared of criminal charges in a phone-hacking scandal. Her return to News Corp could be as soon as early September, the Financial Times said on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.  Reuters reported in March that Brooks, the former editor of the News of the World tabloid and seen as Murdoch's protege, was in talks about returning to News Corp. "As we have said, we have…

  • How 'Boy Meets World' Helped me Dissect Beauty and Colorism

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:39 pm
    I hear it quite often. "You're hot ... for a black girl." And to be honest, I'm almost 100 percent sure I received the same "compliment" during adolescence. You know, that juncture within your life when incessant ☆NSYNC paraphernalia and Boy Meets World quotations were in style. But hey, let's be real - Boy Meets World is still spectacular. In fact, I think that's how it all began, the inception of my love of interracial relationships. Shawn and Angela were perfect.

  • A Generation Desensitized to Gun Violence

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:30 pm
    Along with rest of the world on August 26th, I stared at my computer screen horror watching the final minutes of 24-year-old Alison Parker. The flooding of dread that washed over me while viewing the footage was not due to the graphic nature of the actual shooting. It was from knowing that when Parker woke that morning, she had no idea that instead of covering the news she would be an international headline story in the worst way possible. Her cameraman Adam Ward most likely had ambitions of capturing a newsworthy moment that would go national. 72 hours ago, he would have laughed if someone…
  • Ashley Madison and the Hypocrisy of Male Internet Privacy Activists

    28 Aug 2015 | 11:44 am
    The thing about the Ashley Madison leak that truly fascinates me is the hypocrisy of internet privacy activists, whom are predominantly male. No, I don't think it's necessarily fair to judge every person who has "cheated" on their spouse or with someone who is married. People engage in infidelity for a lot of reasons. There are trapped relationships, repressed sexualities and gender identities, abusive marriages, etc. I get that "cheating" isn't always black-and-white and that people have a right to privacy. But what blows me away every time some internet privacy incident comes up is that so…

    Let's get serious. As morbidly fascinating as the "Trump circus" has been so far, it's time we took a deep breath and acknowledged something that the media has known all along: Donald Trump, a rich, idiosyncratic blowhard with no discernible grind-it-out stamina, is absolutely, positively guaranteed to drop out of this race. When the circus comes to town, it stays only a few days, and then leaves. Cognizant of wearing out its welcome, the circus has no illusions about its long-term staying power. And the same is true of Trump. Not only is he guaranteed to drop out of the race, he already…

In her column on Thursday, The Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan cited a conversation with a Dominican friend to explain why she thinks Trump's "staying power in the polls reflects a change in the electorate."  Something is going on, some tectonic plates are moving in interesting ways. My…
  • Rebekah Brooks Returning To News Corp After Phone-Hacking Scandal

    28 Aug 2015 | 3:09 pm
    LONDON, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Rebekah Brooks will return to her old job heading Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper division, according to the Financial Times and New York Times, just over a year after being cleared of criminal charges in a phone-hacking scandal. Her return to News Corp could be as soon as early September, the Financial Times said on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.  Reuters reported in March that Brooks, the former editor of the News of the World tabloid and seen as Murdoch's protege, was in talks about returning to News Corp. "As we have said, we have…

    In one of its first public changes since coming under new management, Al Jazeera America has parted ways with Mary Caraccioli, formerly the network's senior vice president of news output. The news channel confirmed in a statement to The Huffington Post on Friday that Caraccioli is departing amid its new editorial strategy under CEO Al Anstey, who took on that role in May. "AJAM continues to realign its editorial and business operations to best position the network to advance its core journalistic mission," the network's statement reads. "We thank Mary for her work and dedication, and…
  • How Social Media Would Have Changed Hurricane Katrina Coverage

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:51 pm
    WASHINGTON -- The streets of Algiers Point, a mostly white enclave nestled in a predominantly black New Orleans neighborhood, were not safe. White militias blocked off most of the area’s streets, posted signs declaring that they had no issue gunning down looters. Bullets cut through the stale, moist air. Reginald Bell, a black Algiers resident, stood on a street several blocks from his home, staring down the barrel of a white man’s pump-action shotgun fixed on him from a balcony. Bell was told his kind wasn’t wanted around, according to The New York Times. The following day,…

    28 Aug 2015 | 7:07 pm
    NORWOOD, Mass. (AP) — Donald Trump held a $100-per-person campaign event — which he repeatedly insisted wasn't a fundraiser — outside of Boston on Friday evening as he backpedaled on his previous pledge not to accept contributions for his campaign. "This is not a fundraiser tonight, just so you understand," Trump told reporters at the sprawling Norwood property owned by local car dealership owner Ernie Boch Jr. A combination of die-hard fans and those curious to see the spectacle were treated to food from chef Tony Ambrose and a live cover band, in addition to a speech from…
  • Unions Plot Major Push After Landmark Labor Ruling

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:01 pm
    By Nathan Layne and Mica Rosenberg Aug 28 (Reuters) - U.S. union leaders said on Friday that a landmark U.S. labor board ruling on companies' obligations toward contract and franchise workers would help them organize manufacturers and e-commerce companies as well as fast food chains. On Thursday the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled the owner of a California recycling plant was a "joint employer" with the contractor that hired workers at the plant, essentially forcing both to bargain with the union together or risk violating U.S. labor law. Business groups, arguing that the ruling…
  • Weekend Roundup: Refugees and Market Woes Put World on Edge

    28 Aug 2015 | 6:00 pm
    The undertow of China's slackening economy and the mounting tide of refugees pushing through border after border in Europe put the world on edge this week. After spiraling down, volatile stock markets rallied back, for now. . . Writing from Beijing, Fred Hu argues that what we are witnessing is China's shift toward the "new normal" of a slower growth paradigm focused on domestic consumption instead of investment and export-led growth. He expresses confidence that his country will weather the storm, writing, "it is a loser's game to bet against China's leaders." Nobel laureate Michael Spence…

Neither decision permits false or misleading speech such as sales pitches that omit material safety information or misrepresent scientific findings.

  • Higher Minimum Wage: A Crucial Tool for Lifting More Californians out of Poverty

    28 Aug 2015 | 5:08 pm
    Come January 1, 2016, California will have the highest minimum wage of any state in the country. But it's not enough. So I'm committed to a path toward increasing the minimum wage to at least $15, because no one who works for a living in one of the world's leading economies should have to live in poverty. Right now, half of California's children live in poverty or near-poverty. That's unacceptable, and increasing the minimum wage is part of fixing that problem. A bill in the California Legislature, SB 3 (Leno), is one avenue to increase the minimum wage and help make a better life for…

  • 6 Ways My Parent's Deaths Made Me a Better Leader

    28 Aug 2015 | 4:29 pm
    I was 29 years old when I lost my dad suddenly. He had a heart attack while driving, and crossed the median -- his Cadillac landing on an embankment on the other side of the highway. A couple years prior to that, circumstances that no longer matter had caused me to grow distant toward my dad, so I avoided him some. I was working in the political world at the time and lived a couple hours away. My job kept me on the road a lot, and one day my drive took me right by the school where he taught automotive technology. I felt something pull my Mazda Protégé' up the narrow drive to the school…

    On Aug. 28, 2008, Barack Obama, then a senator from Illinois, accepted the Democratic nomination for president in Denver. In his speech, he made a lot of promises about what he would do as president of the United States. Seven years later, we looked at how he's keeping up with those promises.

  • Why You Always End Up Paying Too Much For In-Flight WiFi

    28 Aug 2015 | 2:18 pm
    Surfing the Internet while flying used to feel like a modern miracle. But in the decade since airlines first began rolling out the service, we've come to expect that most flights will have some kind of web access.  Checking email, Facebook and Twitter from the air has begun to feel like an essential -- one we're willing to pay for.  Gogo, the most prevalent provider of in-flight WiFi in the United States, has more than doubled its connectivity prices on some of its routes, as the New York Times' Brian X.

    Who remembers the 1956 science fiction classic, Academy Award-nominated film, Forbidden Planet, featuring the likes of Walter Pidgeon and Robby the Robot? To the sci-fi aficionado, it was in a league of its own and according to Gene Roddenberry an inspiration for the Star Trek franchise. Do you remember the monster in this film? Of horrible appearance and temperament, his shape only appeared as an outline as he moved against powerful "disintegrator beams." He was unstoppable and vanished only when the Walter Pidgeon character finally died. Our heroes came upon a planet with an extraordinarily…

Unfortunately, I never stopped to think about my beauty routine and how products I use daily like soap, shampoo, and moisturizer…

What we've seen on the runways and headed fast toward the streets in catalogs for the coming season is a lot of interesting textures and bold colors in clothing, often in natural, earthy tones making big statements. The fall hair is also gorgeous in simple, low-maintenance cuts and natural colors. Braids are a great way to add texture to the hair, mix up the symmetry or change a look entirely, while keeping that natural, practical appeal. Here are a couple of the most basic techniques, but don't…

  • Khloe Kardashian Is A Show-Stopper At James Harden's Birthday Party

    Khloe Kardashian looked positively gorgeous at James Harden's birthday yacht party.  The 31-year-old and her entire family were there to celebrate the Houston Rockets player's 26th birthday on the Fantasea Yacht in Marina Del Rey, California, Tuesday. Kardashian turned heads in a sheer, sparkling bodysuit and white slit skirt, with a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps (and white sneakers in hand).  Of course there was a photo booth on board, and the reality TV family shared a handful of the black-and-white photos on Instagram.  A photo posted by Khloé…
  • Fifth Harmony's Views On Beauty Are The Perfect Reminder That You're 'Worth It'

    28 Aug 2015 | 12:43 pm
    After launching into stardom straight from "The X Factor," the girls of Fifth Harmony have seen their share of fame. Luckily, they haven't gotten caught up in the ridiculous beauty standards that come with it. In a "come-as-you-are type of editorial," the girl group opened up to Teen Vogue about all things beauty. Wearing minimal makeup at the shoot, the five singers revealed how they stay confident in a society that constantly stresses the importance of physical qualities. In her interview, 22-year-old Ally Brooke Hernandez explained she felt insecure for years (and sometimes still…

    SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Tropical Storm Erika began to lose steam Friday over Haiti and the Dominican Republic, but it left behind a trail of destruction that killed at least 20 people on the small eastern Caribbean island of Dominica, authorities said. Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said in a televised address late Friday that the island has been set back 20 years in the damage inflicted by the storm. "This is a period of national tragedy," he said, adding that hundreds of homes, bridges and roads have been destroyed. "We have, in essence, to rebuild…

  • Our Future Generations Can Teach Us a Thing or Two About Arctic Drilling

    28 Aug 2015 | 5:34 pm
    Last week, President Obama made a terribly risky decision for the Arctic. His administration cleared the final hurdle that allows for drilling into oil-bearing zones in the Arctic Ocean, approving one of Shell Oil's modified drilling permits for the Chukchi Sea. That decision puts the fate of the fragile Arctic Ocean, and a piece of our climate future, in the hands of Shell - a company with a track record of stumbles and mishaps in the Arctic that hardly inspires confidence. To put this decision into context, it's important to understand the climate legacy President Obama has sought to put…
  • California Climate Bills Could Set A High Bar For The Rest Of The Country

    28 Aug 2015 | 5:17 pm
    As states prepare to develop plans for meeting new greenhouse gas standards from the Environmental Protection Agency, they might look to California as an example of what's possible. Right now, the California legislature is considering two bills, SB 32 and 350, which would allow the state to meet interim climate goals that Gov. Jerry Brown (D) established through an executive order in April. Brown's order calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, a stopping point along the path to reaching an 80 percent cut by 2050 -- a goal scientists have…

Solar energy isn't just limited to the US; it has now become a global standard. Increasing worries about climate change have compelled many to relook at the role of solar energy. It's not just sustainable, but also renewable like wind and biomass, which means there will always be enough of it to go around. However, with so much information on solar energy systems and companies, installation, cost and…

    About 40 members of several Ojibwe communities in Minnesota staged a protest this week over their right to hunt, fish and harvest wild rice off the reservation, seeking to provoke a peaceful confrontation with law enforcement. The protesters, who have organized themselves as the 1855 Treaty Authority, intentionally violated Minnesota state laws and regulations that prohibit the Ojibwe from harvesting wild rice off-reservation. The protest on Thursday and Friday took place on Hole-in-the-Day Lake and Gull Lake, near Nisswa in central Minnesota. The 1855 Treaty Authority argues that the…

Starting on Oct. 1, fans of Jordan and the 1996 sports entertainment classic "Space Jam" can bid on the actual Tune Squad uniform Jordan wore during the making of the movie. Despite there being "signs of wear" and "minor staining" on the uniform, it'll be available for bidding through online auction house Invaluable via Los Angeles-based auction house Profiles In History.

What can I do that's bigger than anger, bigger than a demand for governmental and corporate entities to make changes they are essentially incapable of making? Maybe I can help rewrite the story of civilization, which means unwriting the present story. From…

    Felonius Ax of the Billionaires for Endless War here to offer you an alternative view of this Nuclear Treaty with Iran that so many progressives are supporting: Yes, it will prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon for the next 15 years, and yes, by ending the boycott of Iran's economy, there's a very real possibility that increased trade with Iran by the family of nations will create inroads for democratization of that country. But no one is talking about the people who will be most hurt by this display of unfettered diplomacy: The weapons manufacturers! The arms merchants! I am here to…

  • We've Replaced Your Wife With Folgers Crystals

    28 Aug 2015 | 4:36 pm
    Everything indicated that the American divorce rate would drop after the invention of Folgers Crystals. Research indicates, however, that in the early 1960s, when these commercials were introduced, divorce was at its lowest rate of the decade. Over the next ten years, the divorce rate doubled.

  • Trump These Thoughts

    28 Aug 2015 | 3:45 pm
    I am the best. This is true because I said so. Even the sentences I write are the best except perhaps for the last one, which a teacher told me ended in a preposition, yet if I construct a sentence then whatever words I use are the best, because I said so and I went to Wharton which only accepts the best smart people. Teachers are losers anyway. Imagine making less than one hundred thousand dollars a year and all you do is help kids learn? My grandchildren have car seats worth more than 100K. (I didn't spell out the entire word again because so little money doesn't deserve that many letters,…

  • I'm With Stupid: How Do You Fire a Pistol With Your Feet?

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:44 pm
    As you'll no doubt agree if you're a regular reader of this column, I've been rather wrapped up in myself the past couple of weeks. I've been yammering away so much about my play -- which has two more showings, by the way -- that I've totally neglected my important role as arbiter of what is and what is not stupid in today's society. So self-engrossed was I, in fact, that I completely missed a story so dumb it couldn't not be a column. Here's the 2-week-old headline from the Trenton, New Jersey, Trentonian, just so you know what we're dealing with: "Weapon charge dismissed for man with no…
  • How To Navigate The Horrifying Dystopia That Is Target's New Genderless Toy Section

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:02 pm
    As you've surely heard by now, either via news reports or your homophobic aunt ranting on Facebook about how this is yet another sign of the end times, Target has announced they are no longer labeling their store toy aisles by gender. No more pink section marked "girls." No more blue section marked "boys." No more signs announcing that dolls are for girls and toy guns are for boys. Here's what Target said in its official announcement of the new policy: Right now, our teams are working across the store to identify areas where we can phase out gender-based signage to help strike a better…

  • The 8 Stages Of Watching 'Batman & Robin' On Netflix

    28 Aug 2015 | 2:00 pm
    For whatever masochistic reason, the film "Batman & Robin" is trending on Netflix, and has been for a few weeks or so. Helmed and steered clear off a cliff by Joel Schumacher, "Batman & Robin" stars George Clooney as the caped crusader with nipples on his batsuit. One of the plot points is that Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred is dying, and you see him in various scenes privately wincing from some unknown pain. Well, it's clear now that just being in this movie was probably physically paining the actor who played Alfred, Michael Gough. It's an awful movie. And I fell for watching it. It…

  • With Tougher Gun Control Laws, Alison Parker and Adam Ward Might Still Be Alive

    Bonnie Fuller
    28 Aug 2015 | 11:35 am
    Alison Parker, 24, will never get married to the love of her life or fulfill her dream of being a news director. Adam Ward's fiancee will never wear the wedding dress that was delivered on the day of his murder. We need to stop easy access to any and all kinds of guns. As of 6:45 AM on Aug. 26, Andy Parker will never hear from beloved daughter Alison ever again. "I talked to her every day," he tearily told CNN's Chris Cuomo, explaining that she would always call to get his feedback on her on-air reports. "I'm never going to hear that again. And I just, you know, it just crushes my soul." the…
  • Demi Lovato: Thanks for Standing Up for Female Sexuality and Cosmo Magazine

    Demi Lovato, you are one smart, strong woman and you are now standing up against censorship of Cosmopolitan, the young women's magazine, whose cover you're gracing on the Sept. 2015 issue. Demi Lovato, you took to Instagram on Aug. 5 to fight back against a campaign of censorship against the world's leading magazine for young women: Cosmopolitan. You rightly pointed out that it's very important to "show women there's nothing wrong with embracing their bodies and sexuality" and that "for the first time in a long time I feel incredibly empowered and the most beautiful I've ever felt on this…

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

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

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

  • Sometimes a Movement Needs a Leader: The Bernie Sanders Campaign

    Joseph A. Palermo
    23 Aug 2015 | 2:51 pm
    According to a recent above-the-fold, front-page article in the New York Times by Jason Horowitz, Senator Bernie Sanders "bellows" "snarls" and "glares" his way through campaign appearances. His candidacy, Horowitz writes, amounts to little more than giving "disaffected Democrats" the opportunity "to vent their anger at the list of national ills they believe are caused by big business and its conservative allies." The dismissive tone of such reportage tells us more about what ruling elites would like to sweep under the rug than it does about anything of substance relating to Sanders' critique…
  • Trans-Pacific Partnership: Obama Sides With the Wrong People for the Wrong Reasons at the Wrong Time

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

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

    Joseph A. Palermo
    26 May 2015 | 3:39 pm
    Nothing illustrates better the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican war hawks who call themselves presidential candidates than their attempts to whitewash the history of how this nation went to war in Iraq. John Ellis "Jeb" Bush stood by his brother's side while he demolished a nation of 28 million people in the heart of the Arab world he knew nothing about. Out on the stump, Jeb and other GOP candidates try to shift responsibility for the worst U.S. foreign policy disaster since the Vietnam War from George W. to President Barack Obama. Jeb and Co. claim that everything was…
  • The Baltimore Riots, Inequality and Federal Inaction

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

  • Trump's Tropes

    Robert L. Borosage
    27 Aug 2015 | 5:55 am
    In the dog days of August, the news channels have turned themselves into the Trump show. Bernie Sanders rouses the biggest crowds in obscurity while Trump floods the air waves. Commentators still dismiss Trump as a summertime fling, a bad boy escape before voters settle down with a serious choice. But Trump is more than a celebrity. He has earned his high disapproval rates, but he also enjoys support across the Republican party. His ugly posturing over immigration expresses the fears and anger of much of the Republican base. And unlike his rivals, he speaks to the discontent of American…

    Chanting "$15.00 and a union," thousands of federal contract workers walked off their jobs yesterday, led by the Senate's cafeteria workers who serve Senators their food. They were joined by Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, led by Keith Ellison (D-Minn) and Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz). Sanders announced they were introducing legislation to raise the federal minimum wage to $15.00 an hour. Sanders also reiterated his call on President Obama - joined in a formal letter by Elizabeth Warren and 18 other Senators -- to give…
  • The Sanders Challenge

    Robert L. Borosage
    1 May 2015 | 2:56 pm
    Tweeting that "America needs a political revolution," Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders threw his hat into the race for the Democratic nomination for president this week. Sanders is in many ways the mirror image of Hillary Clinton, the prohibitive favorite in the race. She has universal name recognition, unlimited funds and a campaign operation overrun with political pros. He is not widely known, has little money, and has never run a national campaign. Sanders is not easy, not blow dried and not scripted. But in a populist moment, he is the real deal -- a full throated, unabashed, independent,…
  • Hillary: Time to Step Up on the Trade Deal

    Robert L. Borosage
    30 Apr 2015 | 11:03 am
    It's time for Hillary Clinton to take a position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement and the fast track authority designed to ramrod it through the Congress. Hillary has been non-committal to date, with many assuming she will eventually support the president whom she served as Secretary of State. But now the pressure to take a stand is growing. President Obama decided to call out his opponents, turning the escalating battle over fast track and TPP into an intra-party back-alley knife fight. AFLCIO President Rich Trumka, head of the 11 million member labor federation, delivered a…

    Robert L. Borosage

    This week in Washington, hundreds of low wage federal government contract workers walked off their jobs, demonstrating for a living wage and a union. They included Senate janitors and food service workers, the workers who serve the Senators their food and clean up the messes they leave. Carrying signs reading "Hiring: A President who will sign a $15 +Union Executive Order," these workers are calling on President Obama to lead, asking him to put government on the side of workers by issuing an executive order that would give preference in government procurement and licensing to companies that…

For a brand to employ culture effectively it needs to understand what 'codes' are out there, and which are most culturally salient in order to smash, break and combine them into something that is truly vibrant, new and culturally on point.

    Chroniques d'Asie du Sud-Ouest (28) La pensée géopolitique pakistanaise, comme ailleurs, n'est pas un bloc. Elle est traversée de multiples tendances, qui peuvent évoluer dans le temps, et qu'on ne comprend pas si on les juge avec une approche d'abord moralisatrice. Donc quand on parle d'"École" géopolitique ici, il ne s'agit pas de groupes de personnes et d'institutions définis avec extrême précision pour rendre le travail plus simple pour l'analyste extérieur, bien sûr. On évoque plutôt par là de grandes tendances intellectuelles ayant un impact plus ou moins grand selon les…
  • Tout ce que vous ne savez pas sur la sophrologie

    28 Aug 2015 | 12:45 pm
    PSYCHOLOGIE - On croit tout savoir de la sophrologie et pourtant elle conserve une image floue auprès du grand public, allant de l'ésotérisme à la relaxation, en passant par l'hypnose. A la fin des années soixante, son créateur, le neuropsychiatre Alfonso Caycedo, notant la rupture de la conscience chez ses patients, choisit d'étudier les pratiques orientales sur la conscience et de trouver une approche alternative à la camisole chimique ou aux électrochocs, trop violents et réductifs à son goût et sans espoir d'évolution positive. Dans cette optique, la sophrologie est créee en…

    C'est encore arrivé la semaine dernière, dans la file d'attente, à la banque. -"Ça, c'est un beau chien! Il s'appelle comment?" -"Merci, il s'appelle Theodore. Il est gentil, vous pouvez le caresser." Elle le caresse. Il gigote, frétille de la queue et se frotte à elle. "Il est vraiment magnifique. C'est un croisé Boxer?" -"Non, un pitbull." -"Ah d'accord! Pourtant, ils ont vraiment mauvaise réputation. Comme quoi, ce n'est qu'une question d'élevage." Ça y est, je suis mal à l'aise.

Education's great task, she said at a recent New Hampshire education summit, is not to prepare people for jobs, but to "fill children's souls," to make of them the kinds of citizens who can contribute to a participatory democracy. And that task, she insisted, requires exposure to music, literature, art and philosophy -- the very subjects that are…

  • The Daily Dot: How a 'Pornographic' Lesbian Graphic Novel Ignited a Culture War at Duke

    The Daily Dot
    27 Aug 2015 | 1:24 pm
    A group of freshmen at Duke University is boycotting a critically acclaimed book assigned for summer reading because of its gay-themed content. The book in question is Alison Bechdel's illustrated memoir Fun Home--which has recently been made into a Tony Award-winning musical. The memoir follows Bechdel's relationship with her closeted gay father, who committed suicide after the then-19-year-old author came out to her parents as a lesbian. It's a tough story to read, no doubt, but it's a reality that many LGBT people face. Read more: Duke University, Fun Home, Lgbt, LGBT Rights, LGBT Issues,…

However, at the last minute, he drew his sword and in a clean cut slew his enemy. Japanese anime, so popular on the island during the eighties, seems to have inspired the Cuban authorities in their tendencies to hold off on certain solutions until a problem has already resulted in the worst ravages. This has happened with the recent announcement that, as of this coming September 15, a…

  • Top 7 Reasons I Haven't Jumped Out a Window From Katrina 10 Coverage

    1) I live on the first floor, so there would be no point. Pre-Katrina my husband Jeff and I lived on the second floor. Then we lived in Illinois, second floor again, while my parents both succumbed to the long goodbye of Alzheimer's Disease. Then we shared a house with Dr. John while everybody was making it back to the city. Now we live in the French Quarter in a Creole cottage that I leave as little as possible. Having the bottom drop out of life turns you into a couch-hugger once you find a couch that tends to remain in place. It's a long story. 2) The stories from New Orleans still need to…

  • Breve historia de la censura en el arte: de 1508 hasta la actualidad

    28 Aug 2015 | 12:50 pm
    El Real Academia Española de la Lengua (RAE) define censura como "dictamen y juicio que se hace o da acerca de una obra o escrito". El mundo del arte —un reino poblado por obras frecuentemente aclamadas por sus características transgresoras, controvertidas y tabúes— choca por lo general, en pos de la lucha por la libertad de expresión, contra los estándares de decencia y buen gusto. A lo largo de la historia, las obras de arte han sido alteradas, silenciadas e incluso eliminadas por inaceptables, según las motivaciones censoras de la religión, la sociedad o la política de turno.
  • Pese a la amenaza nazi han hecho su fiesta de bienvenida a refugiados

    28 Aug 2015 | 12:45 pm
    La ciudad alemana de Heidenau, escenario el fin de semana pasado de protestas por parte de neonazis contra un centro de acogida de refugiados, había prohibido ejercer el derecho de reunión a partir de la tarde de este viernes y hasta el lunes por la mañana ante la imposibilidad de poder garantizar la seguridad de sus vecinos. De momento, de nada ha servido. Grupos de izquierdas han celebrado, como tenían previsto, una fiesta de bienvenida en Heidenau para los refugiados alojados en un gran almacén de bricolaje con barbacoa, partidos de fútbol y otras actividades, así como distribuir…

La alcaldesa ha criticado que las fronteras europeas se llenen de medidas de seguridad, y ha apelado a la empatía de Europa: "Europa, europeos: abramos los ojos.

Utilizar el teléfono mientras estás viajando puede acabar muy mal. Es lo que intenta reflejar la campaña #ItCanWait (eso puede esperar) con este vídeo, en el que las chicas tienen un trágico final por hacer más caso del móvil que de la carretera.

  • Espeluznante agresión en un partido de fútbol sala femenino

    28 Aug 2015 | 9:24 am
    Si no es la peor agresión durante un partido que se ha visto nunca, poco le falta. ¿Recuerdan la de Pepe a Casquero? Pues lo que pasó en este partido de fútbol sala femenino en Brasil fue mucho peor. Venezia y Montenegro son dos equipos aficionados, pero por la tensión que se vio en la cancha parece que se jugaban la vida. Una jugadora, cansada de las filigranas de la estrella rival, no dudó en darle una brutal patada en la cara cuando ésta, despistada, sonreía en el suelo mirando para otro lado. Dantesca imagen.

Secondo le credenze religiose di costui, se i soccorritori avessero toccato la ragazza per salvarla, l'avrebbero disonorata a vita. Da prete, mi fa un male pazzesco che delle bestemmie vengano prese per credenze religiose.
