    Do you know what happens when you live in New York and you type the words "why am" into Google? Before you can type the next word, Google's Autocomplete function helpfully offers to complete your thought. The first suggestion: "why am I so tired?" The second: "why am I always tired?" The Zeitgeist perfectly captured by Google. As the Belgian philosopher Pascal Chabot has put it, burnout is "civilization's disease." True, the results of an algorithm lack the nuance and intellectual heft of a philosophical diagnosis, and the results are regional, but Autocomplete provides a valuable window into…

  • David Gregory Stuck In Third Place As 'Meet The Press' Rumors Swirl

    Politics - The Huffington Post
    24 Jul 2014 | 10:34 am
    These are surely not the numbers David Gregory was hoping for on Thursday. The woebegone "Meet The Press" host is weathering one of his worst periods of press coverage, with rumors running rampant that he is due to be ousted from his job within months. (NBC has called the rumors "false.") If anybody was wondering why Gregory appears to be on such thin ice, they got an answer on Thursday, when Nielsen's weekly roundup of the Sunday talk show ratings was released. ABC's "This Week" and CBS's "Face the Nation" battled it out for first place in the total viewer category, with ABC pulling well…

    Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison said that "if we're not at the table, were on the menu." This was his justification for his attendance at this year's White House Iftar, which took place in the shadow of the U.S. government's support for Israel's massacre of Palestinians in Gaza, as well as new revelations surrounding the National Security Agency's illegal surveillance of Muslim- and Arab-American community leaders. While I completely agree with Congressman Ellison and have always advocated for this fact, what he and many other White House Ifar attendees have yet to recognize is that they…

    19 Jul 2014 | 9:00 pm
    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…
  • Lincoln, FDR, and the Power of the Well-Timed Vacation

    13 Jul 2014 | 6:30 pm
    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…
  • The Alliance: o livro que pode mudar nosso modo de trabalhar

    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. Estou falando de The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age [A aliança: Gerenciando o talento na era das redes], de Reid Hoffman,…

    13 Jul 2014 | 1:00 am
    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." Which is a way…

  • Russian Sanctions Spark AK-47 Buying Frenzy In U.S.

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:25 am
    In an effort to keep arms away from Russian-backed rebels in Ukraine, the United States may have kicked off something of an arms race back home. The Obama administration last week announced a new round of sanctions against Russia that it says are intended to discourage Russia from continuing to support rebel groups in eastern Ukraine. Companies blacklisted by the U.S. include Russian banks, energy firms and eight weapons manufacturers -- including Kalashnikov Concern, a maker of what is arguably the most popular weapon in the world, the AK-47. The move sent American gun buyers into a frenzy,…

    This past weekend, anti-immigration actions swept the country; on Tuesday, Texas Governor Rick Perry sounded the call for the immediate deployment of 1,000 national guardsmen to the U.S. border; and our leaders are currently considering gutting a bill that allowed for the humane treatment of child migrants from non-contiguous countries. Republican Congress members have made it clear that immigration reform is effectively dead this year. But these women and children are effectively dead if we do nothing. These refugees are facing life and death while Republican Congress members worry about…
  • Joe Lieberman Has A New Gig

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:09 am
    NEW YORK (AP) — Former U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman has been appointed a professor at Yeshiva University for the coming school year. The private New York university named him the Joseph Lieberman Chair in Public Policy and Public Service. He'll teach an undergraduate course and give three public lectures on topics ranging from Judaism and public service to the Middle East. Lieberman represented Connecticut in the U.S. Senate between 1989 and 2013. He was Democrat Al Gore's running mate during the 2000 presidential campaign but was re-elected to the Senate as an independent in 2006. Lieberman…

  • In 2014, Politics May Be Local. Really.

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:07 am
    Say what will you about 2014, but it hasn't stuck to anyone's script so far. The Beltway punditry has strained to find a consistent national narrative all year. And after the shocking defeat of Rep. Eric Cantor and unlikely triumph of GOP Sen. Thad Cochran due to a groundswell of African American support, we should probably expect an election full of the unexpected. Nearly four months out from November, there are still no clear signs of an impending wave, like we saw in 2010 and 2006, which would impact virtually every midterm race. What if this means that to some extent, as the old adage…
  • Do Republicans Warrant Being the Majority Party in Both Houses?

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:46 am
    Conservative humorist P.J. O'Rourke once said of Republicans, they are "the party that says government doesn't work and then they get elected and prove it." O'Rourke's observation may prove to be the most cogent rationale for a Republican victory in November. If tradition holds, Democrats will lose seats in the midterm elections. In the previous 21midterm elections the party of the president has lost on average 30 seats in the House of Representatives and 4 seats in the Senate. In 2010, Democrats lost 63 seats in the House and 6 Senate seats. According to the most recent NBC/Wall Street…
  • Whose Decision? The President's or the FAA's?

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:58 am
    When it comes to the handling of complex pressing foreign policy issues, national security considerations of the executive branch generally trump rulings of U.S. courts, as well as those of U.S. government agencies. The FAA is no exception, although the matter is usually handled in more subtle than direct ways. In this perspective, the decision to ban U.S. flights into Israel, and then to resume them, has to be seen as a White House decision, not one by the FAA. To put the matter in perspective, in 1995, when in private practice, I was approached to see if I could do something about the heavy…

John Walsh had plagiarized his master's thesis when he appointed the former lieutenant governor to the Senate in February. Bullock joined national Democrats with a statement supporting Walsh, whose apparent plagiarism was first reported Wednesday by The New York Times. Walsh is now campaigning to keep the seat in November. "Senator Walsh has a long history of fighting for Montanans, both at home and in combat," Bullock said. "He deserves respect for his courage on our behalf." The…

    For just one brief and shining moment, gay people in Florida were treated equally when a courageous judge in Monroe County -- Luis Garcia, the Chief Circuit Court Judge -- decided that two men (Aaron Huntsman, 44, and William Lee Jones, 43) should be able to marry whomever they please, in this case, each other. He ruled in their favor last April in the case the couple had filed against Amy Heavlin, the Monroe County Clerk of Court. Judge Garcia's opinion recognized the constitutional right to marriage and likened the denial of that right to outdated social norms that kept women from voting…

LEGO is partnering with Shell on a global advertising campaign that includes co-branded toys, billboards, celebrity endorsements, videos, and a full-size LEGO Formula One car. Using toys to advertise any kind of product to kids is wrong. But it's particularly harmful to sell children on Shell, a company with a shameful environmental record that plans to drill for oil in the Alaskan Arctic, one of the most vulnerable places on earth.

    When I was in grade school, I was a bully. I punched a lot of kids and even stabbed one with a pencil. I have older brothers, and I have had anger issues, but I still feel bad about my behavior. Once I got to high school, however, there was a paradigm shift. I was picked on by these jock twin brothers who played basketball and made out with girls. They took it upon themselves to frequently remind me that I was a "fag." I was lucky to avoid physical torment, but as it stood, I still couldn't defend myself. In their limited scope, "fag" meant uncool and I was. I was a nerd. I obviously resented…

    24 Jul 2014 | 7:33 am
    As a human being fortunate enough to painfully observe, and not be victim to, the atrocities ongoing in our world today, I've noticed a tech-based trend when it comes to caring. Social media has played a triumphant role in magnifying what bothers its users -- us, the younger generation. This "bother", however, doesn't appear to have any kind of long-term consistency. Why is that? Why have we collectively moved our online concerns for humanity to Gaza? Syria's still in conflict. The kidnapped Nigerian girls are still missing. Congo's death toll in years and years of violence surpasses a number…

"We could say this every time I come on your show and talk to you: we've hit all-time lows with media coverage in this country," Scahill told Minkovski.

The Obama administration last week announced a new round of sanctions against Russia that it says are intended to discourage Russia from continuing to support rebel groups in eastern Ukraine. Companies blacklisted by the U.S. include Russian banks, energy firms and eight weapons manufacturers -- including Kalashnikov Concern, a maker of what is arguably the most popular weapon in the world, the AK-47. The move sent American gun buyers into a frenzy,…
  • The Simple LinkedIn Mistake that KILLS Opportunities

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:22 am
    Millions of LinkedIn users are sabotaging their own careers and job search by making an easy to fix mistake - misspelling words in their job titles and LinkedIn Professional Headlines. We all know how deadly misspellings are in resumes. Somehow, many of us have not translated that understanding to our LinkedIn Profiles. As a result, we make a bad impression on many people. But damaging credibility is not the only negative impact - and it may not even be the most serious! Result of the misspelling: Exclusion from search results on important keywords for our job search and career. I found one…

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:58 am
    In 2005, I was a criminal defense lawyer in Springfield, Missouri. I spent nearly 20 years defending people accused of the most serious crimes imaginable. I developed a reputation for winning, for aggressive cross-examination, and most of all the dedicated work of "leaving no stone unturned." I loved the courtroom and everything that surrounded it. I loved the minutia: what many would call boring but what I called the difference between the death penalty and a not guilty verdict. I reveled in learning new things about DNA testing, blood spatter, gun shot residue or carpet fiber analysis. I…

  • Pimping Diversity

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:49 am
    It has been said, "diversity management is a racket." Regrettably, there is a great deal of truth in this statement. In fact, "diversity management" has become a thriving industry with few bottom-line results that is in little danger of disappearing; we have all bought into a social construct that permits us to feel good about perpetrating a fraud. Corporations, universities, government agencies, minorities and "good white folks" alike -- we are all complicit in pimping diversity. Much like affirmative action, diversity management was developed to advance a multicultural workplace. Today,…
  • How to School Yourself at Work

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:34 am
    I didn't have a TV in my room when I was kid. My mom didn't allow it. Video games? No way. Free time was abundant and instead of wasting it she filled those hours, for my sisters and me, with learning. She took responsibility for that, then, but now it's on us.At some point in our lives, we begin to live within the barriers of society. These walls alter our once inquisitive minds and create boundaries that narrow our ability to think freely. The allotted time for curious learning and imaginative thinking (which was constant, as a kid), in some cases, disappears. Let's bring it back. Have you…

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:34 am
    Instagram may be following in the footsteps of its parent company, Facebook, by developing a Snapchat clone -- and prematurely leaking it, too. Last night, some Android users reported seeing a notification in their Instagram feed announcing Bolt, a “one tap photo messaging app," The Verge reported Thursday. The notification, which apparently linked out to a nonexistent Google Play page, was taken down soon thereafter. A Facebook representative declined to comment, and Instagram did not immediately return a request for comment. But several screenshots of the notification have been posted to…

    CINCINNATI (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that more investment in infrastructure and job training is needed to increase economic opportunities in the nation's cities. Biden spoke at the National Urban League conference, where the theme is "One Nation Underemployed." Biden said the keys to putting more people in better-paying jobs and spurring economic growth in cities are workforce training to meet today's business needs and improving roads, bridges and other transportation.

    Jennie Garth has a long and storied history with Tori Spelling. The two "grew up" together on the long-running teen series "Beverly Hills, 90210," and now, 24 years after the show first premiered, they star alongside one another in ABC Family's "Mystery Girls." While Garth is only a year older than her co-star, she told HuffPost Live's Caitlyn Becker that she looks at her as a "little sister." Accordingly, she was quick to come to her defense when asked to address a soundbite of Ian Ziering calling Spelling's reality show "a trainwreck" in a May HuffPost Live interview.

Or maybe he's getting into killer shape to prepare for a role with epic fight scenes. Perhaps he's taking precautionary steps to ward off any potential pirate attacks. But we'll leave the judging to Judy. You just do you, Leo.

Hannah, aka @sherbetswift, took to Instagram to ask her idol for some love advice earlier this week, and the 24-year-old singer-songwriter responded with what might be the most sincere message ever written. According to GossipCop, Hannah's original post read: There’s a guy Taylor, a guy who’s sweet and charming and makes me laugh. A guy who said sorry for eating in front of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast. A guy who grew up across the street from me. A guy who plays guitar like me. A guy who was my first best…

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:21 am
    Educators around the world are embracing mobile learning in what is considered a relentless and inevitable march towards the 'flipped' classroom. The average family today owns at least a handful of mobile devices, which invariably end up serving as modern-day babysitters, among other duties. Is there something we can learn from teachers to turn such free-form playtime into opportunities for learning?

    Willem Dafoe never set out to be a famous actor; he wasn't a child who dreamed of a place in Hollywood. In fact, growing up, he didn't really have an answer for those who asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. "I never had a picture in mind, I just kind of drifted from situation to situation" he explained for NEWSWIRE.FM's ONE WORLD series. "I never had that moment that you hear a lot of actors have where they say 'oh I want to be an actor.'" For Willem, it was more of a progression from one project to another without a clear desire to turn it into a larger career. But a career is…

No, not Sex Tape -- I have no idea about how that plot plays out and, besides, that's not genre. But otherwise, for all their divergent approaches to the material, both I Origins and Mood Indigo incorporate the same base theme. After that, of course, anything goes: I Origins continues director Mike Cahill's ongoing exploration of humanity's interconnectedness through the tale of a dedicated, eye-obsessed scientist (Mike Cahill) having his adherence to objective reasoning…

"It's always a knot in my stomach," the 23-year-old says of industry expectations to constantly top his previous efforts, "But I look at it like I'm having fun." It's been a wild, unpredictable ride for the rapper, who shot from un-signed artist to the top of worldwide charts in a matter of months with his 2007 debut "Crank That (Soulja Boy)." Self-produced and initially released on the internet, the single went on top the Billboard "Hot 100" chart for seven nonconsecutive weeks and sell in excess three million copies. Since that…

The 41-year-old actress and her rumored beau Benji Madden basked in the gorgeous scenery of Sardinia, Italy on July 24, taking a stroll on the rocks before heading back to their yacht with friends. Diaz wore a teeny mismatched bikini while Madden rocked fish-patterned swim trunks and a muscle-tee. The couple has been exploring the Amalfi Coast, and was recently spotted in Capri.

  • Baby Deer Approaches Cameraman, Licks Lens With No Inhibitions

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:21 am
    Now this is up-close and personal camera work. The YouTube user A Bad Idol recently uploaded a video of a baby deer approaching him and his camera while he filmed the animal from his porch. At first, the man begins to back away as the deer approaches. But then, after reaching his porch, he stops while the deer keeps coming forward. Oddly enough, it seems the young deer just wanted a taste of the camera, perhaps checking to see if it was food. It's possible the deer approached the camera as a result of habituation, where deers become accustomed to being fed by and hanging around humans. That's…

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:20 am
    What is a Sherpa exactly? As an experienced mountaineer, I can tell you that they are one of the best communities of people on the planet. The Sherpa are actually a Tibetan tribe that occupies the high valleys around the base of the High Himalayas in northeastern Nepal. The native Sherpa pronunciation is "Shar-wa." Shar meaning east, and wa meaning person. Sherpa are people who live in the east. Growing up in India, Sherpa were part of my cultural wheelhouse. In fact one Sherpa in particular served as a sort of superhero for me as a child. Every now and again I would hear about Sherpa Tenzing…
  • Everything Is Not Awesome in LEGOland

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:09 am
    LEGO holds a special place in the hearts and minds of children and families around the world. But everything is not awesome in LEGOland. LEGO is partnering with Shell on a global advertising campaign that includes co-branded toys, billboards, celebrity endorsements, videos, and a full-size LEGO Formula One car. Using toys to advertise any kind of product to kids is wrong. But it's particularly harmful to sell children on Shell, a company with a shameful environmental record that plans to drill for oil in the Alaskan Arctic, one of the most vulnerable places on earth. That's why Greenpeace and…

  • Not Just the Atlantic: Obama Leasing Millions of Gulf Acres for Offshore Drilling

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:48 am
    Cross-Posted from DeSmogBlog Deploying the age-old "Friday news dump," President Barack Obama's Interior Department gave the green light on Friday, July 18 to companies to deploy seismic air guns to examine the scope of Atlantic Coast offshore oil-and-gas reserves. It is the first time in over 30 years that the oil and gas industry is permitted to do geophysical data collection along the Atlantic coast. Though decried by environmentalists, another offshore oil and gas announcement made the same week has flown under the radar: over 21 million acres of Gulf of Mexico…
  • Clean Your Home With Farmers Market Finds

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:40 am
    If you're like me, as the end of summer draws near, I spend as much time as possible browsing local farmers markets (Checkout websites such as GrowNYC or Local Harvest for locations close to you). As the founder of an eco-friendly cleaning company, I can't help but use some of those glorious farmers market finds to create effective (and economical) DIY cleaning solutions. Here are 5 farmers market products that are cleaning powerhouses: Herbs or Essential Oils Mixed in a spray bottle with a little water, borax or vinegar, herbs can become an effective (and great smelling) disinfectant cleaner…

  • Could There Be an Economic Rebirth for Rural America?

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:39 pm
    I live in rural America. But my rural America is not the agricultural fields of waving grain so often imagined. It is not a land locked state in the center of our country. My county crashes up against the wild surf of the Pacific Ocean. It is filled with great natural beauty and diversity, encompassing forests of giant redwood groves, rugged coastlines, coastal mountains, small inland towns nestled in valleys, and yes, agricultural areas. We are a tourist destination for visitors from all over the world. While much of rural America encompasses large agribusinesses, for many rural communities…

  • Baby Deer Approaches Cameraman, Licks Lens With No Inhibitions

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:21 am
    Now this is up-close and personal camera work. The YouTube user A Bad Idol recently uploaded a video of a baby deer approaching him and his camera while he filmed the animal from his porch. At first, the man begins to back away as the deer approaches. But then, after reaching his porch, he stops while the deer keeps coming forward. Oddly enough, it seems the young deer just wanted a taste of the camera, perhaps checking to see if it was food. It's possible the deer approached the camera as a result of habituation, where deers become accustomed to being fed by and hanging around humans. That's…

    Zebra or horse? Okapi's refuse to choose. And in today's modern society, they don't have to. Story continues after animals that refuse to choose... This picture from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, shows mother Ayana and her 2-week-old calf. From the AP: The male calf, named Jackson, was born on July 6 and is spending time with his mother in the okapi barn at the Safari Park as he gets to know his surroundings. Okapi newborns can stand within 30 minutes of birth and nurse for the first time within an hour. They have the same coloring as an adult but have a short fringe of hair along the spine,…

    Sen. Mark Pryor's (D-Ark.) re-election campaign blasted challenger Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) on Wednesday for touting disaster aid for Arkansas farmers affected by floods, even though Cotton voted against the 2014 and 2013 Farm Bills. "I appreciate Secretary Vilsack's quick approval of Governor Beebe's disaster declaration request for the 23 impacted counties," Cotton said in a joint press release with the Arkansas congressional delegation. "I have heard from many farmers about the impact of the recent flooding, and I look forward to working with our friends in Arkansas to make sure farmers…
  • Even Dogs Get Jealous, New Study Suggests

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:07 am
    Humans may not be the only animals to experience jealousy. A new study published in the online scientific journal PLOS ONE lends support to the theory that dogs get jealous too. The idea for the research came when a University of California, San Diego psychology professor saw her family's border collies exhibit some intriguing behavior. "As I was petting the dogs, what happened is that one dog would push the other dog's head from out underneath my hand so that both hands were on him, and it wasn't just one dog who did this," Dr. Christine Harris told NBC News. "They were not content to be…

    Bill and Barbara Westbrook are frequent visitors to the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in Kenya, but they'll be the first to say that their most recent visit was the best yet. While at the conservancy's Kicheche Bush Camp, the Westbrooks witnessed a standoff between a mother giraffe and a pride of lions intent on eating her calf. Even though she was outnumbered, and without any sharp claws of her own, the giraffe stood strong to protect her calf. "This was remarkable, going on for almost half an hour as the mother protected her calf ferociously from the young Moniko pride," Barbara Westbrook…

  • What You Need To Know About The Condom Designed To Kill HIV

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:34 am
    A groundbreaking new condom that uses an antiviral gel as added protection against HIV, herpes and HPV may soon hit the shelves in Australia. But some experts are wary of the effectiveness of VivaGel, the lube that makes the condom so potent against viral sexually transmitted infections. The VivaGel condom, made by pharmaceutical company Starpharma, is the only condom of its kind to incorporate the antiviral compound, asodrimer sodium, in its lubricant. Lab tests show that it can "inactivate" up to 99.9 percent of HIV, herpes (HSV) and HPV, according to the company's press release. But Dr.
  • Arrest Made In Stray Bullet Killing Of 11-Year-Old Shamiya Adams

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:47 am
    CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago police say they've arrested a man in the slaying of an 11-year-old girl who was struck in the head by a stray bullet while at a sleepover last week. Janel Sedevic, a Chicago police spokeswoman, says the man has been arrested on a first-degree murder charge and will be formally charged Thursday. She provided no other details. Sedevic says Superintendent Garry McCarthy will discuss the arrest at a Thursday morning news conference. Shamiya Adams was making s'mores at a friend's house in the West Garfield Park neighborhood on July 18 when she was struck by a bullet. She…

    24 Jul 2014 | 5:48 am
    Friends, when a small group of parents and educators formed the Network for Public Education in 2013, we had a singular goal: to mobilize the allies of public education against the powerful forces supporting privatization and high-stakes testing. To advance that goal, we hoped to create a force to counter the large amounts of money that were being dumped into state and local school board races to undermine public education, to demoralize teachers, and to promote an agenda of choice, testing, and sanctions. We knew we were up against some of the wealthiest people in the nation. We knew they…

  • Why Neo-Plessyism Failed to Improve Chicago Schools

    23 Jul 2014 | 3:01 pm
    The market-driven school reform movement intentionally uses test, punish, choice, and no-holds-barred competition to sort and separate students and educators. They scoff at the social science that explains the need for trusting relationships and diversity in schools, as they use the stress of tests and competition to supposedly overcome the stress of poverty. Reformers ridicule calls for collaboration and integration, as they use segregation by choice to undo the legacy of segregation by economics and race!?!? Then they are shocked, shocked, that their campaign to separate leads to increased…
  • Here's What Happens When You Type 'Why Am' Into Google in New York

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:51 pm
    Do you know what happens when you live in New York and you type the words "why am" into Google? Before you can type the next word, Google's Autocomplete function helpfully offers to complete your thought. The first suggestion: "why am I so tired?" The second: "why am I always tired?" The Zeitgeist perfectly captured by Google. As the Belgian philosopher Pascal Chabot has put it, burnout is "civilization's disease." True, the results of an algorithm lack the nuance and intellectual heft of a philosophical diagnosis, and the results are regional, but Autocomplete provides a valuable window into…
  • Interview on the Red Carpet With Woody Allen

    It is a rare occasion that director, screenwriter, actor, Academy Award winner, comedian, and musician Woody Allen appears in Chicago. On July 19th, in promotion of his new film, Magic In the Moonlight, Woody Allen did just that. He was in rare form, chatting on the red carpet and, as you'll see in the video below, discussing his work ethic and life view. Woody Allen is a rare artist who continues to be prolific in his art and steadfast in his desire to create. I was honored to speak with him about his mélange of beauty and sorrow, hope and despair, joy and cruelty, and found him to be…

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:25 am
    In an effort to keep arms away from Russian-backed rebels in Ukraine, the United States may have kicked off something of an arms race back home. The Obama administration last week announced a new round of sanctions against Russia that it says are intended to discourage Russia from continuing to support rebel groups in eastern Ukraine. Companies blacklisted by the U.S. include Russian banks, energy firms and eight weapons manufacturers -- including Kalashnikov Concern, a maker of what is arguably the most popular weapon in the world, the AK-47. The move sent American gun buyers into a frenzy,…

    I met Mustapha for the first time in a refugee camp in the Syrian border town of Atmeh, near Turkey. At the time, I was training young Syrians in the camp on conflict resolution techniques. Mustapha was standing outside the big tent; he was too old to go to the local children's school, and too young to be part of the service groups around the camp. I asked Mustapha to come and join us, which he excitingly did. This wonderful young man told me that his father, a defected officer, died in the conflict, and his mother brought him with his brothers and sisters to the camp, escaping from jets…

Although the distinction between Israel and Hamas couldn't be clearer - between a democratic nation and a terrorist organization, between the victim and the aggressor, between a society that protects its civilians and one that uses them as human shields, and between a military that operates by a strict code of conduct and a group governed by no scruples whatsoever - some consider all that irrelevant, unimportant, or beside the point.

    After nearly three years in the job, the much-vilified U.S. Ambassador to Bahrain, Thomas Krajeski, will be replaced - if the U.S. Senate agrees to his confirmation - by William Roebuck, a middle east specialist at the State Department. After stints in embassies in Libya, Iraq, Syria and Israel, a spell with close U.S. ally Bahrain might seem like a relatively cushy number, but being American ambassador to Bahrain has become a nightmare job. Krajeski and his staff have been regularly attacked in media loyal to the Bahrain government. Last year the cabinet, which includes the Prime Minister…

    The UN is as much stage as platform for diplomatic exchange, and the Kremlin is no longer so keen on keeping the curtain up. From news to manifestations in popular culture, diplomacy is evolving, modern communication defining both obsolescence and new demands/opportunities. The conversation is increasingly moving beyond states to the global citizen and access to news and perspectives is part of the diplomatic arsenal. Most recently, the UN Security Council Resolution demanding access for investigators to the MH17 Malaysia crash site in pro-Russia rebel held territory showed how Moscow is…

    As a human being fortunate enough to painfully observe, and not be victim to, the atrocities ongoing in our world today, I've noticed a tech-based trend when it comes to caring. Social media has played a triumphant role in magnifying what bothers its users -- us, the younger generation. This "bother", however, doesn't appear to have any kind of long-term consistency. Why is that? Why have we collectively moved our online concerns for humanity to Gaza? Syria's still in conflict. The kidnapped Nigerian girls are still missing.

The woman -- who the article notes was of normal intelligence -- told doctors she used the five-inch toy in a drunken sexual encounter a decade ago and didn't remember whether she took it out or not, the Daily Mail reported. By the time surgeons found it, the toy's effects were potentially…

    An Iowa community's campaign urging residents to buy toilet paper locally was bound to be the butt of jokes. In its own take on the initiative (above), WTFark! goes on a roll. But to the Eldridge, North Scott area, it's serious business. The "Shop, Stay and Wipe Local" drive could boost the area economy by $677,000, according to one estimate. That's a lot of scratch. (Or not, if everyone is wiping properly.)

    I didn't want a cell phone. I was perfectly content with my landline telephone and felt no need to reach out, touch or be touched by anyone. I loved the quiet periods that came with driving, and wandering through shops and parks, alone and non-communicative. Now, if I don't answer my phone in the middle of dinner at a restaurant, callers worry and later reprimand me for having turned it off. Technology frustrates and baffles me. When I reluctantly caved in and bought a cell phone, I did it so I could call for help if I was lost or mugged. I hadn't bargained for a built-in camera, a recording…
  • Woman Expecting Breakup Text Receives Beautiful, Handwritten Breakup Letter

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:52 am
    This post originally appeared on Reductress.com. Sarah Lloyd was surprised and touched to receive a beautiful, handwritten breakup letter this Monday. Lloyd, who had sensed that a breakup was coming with boyfriend Thomas Scott, had been expecting to receive the information via text and was completely thrown off and charmed by the beautiful letter. "After all we've been through, I expected him to break up with me in a more convenient way. I expected him to be like all the other guys, but I guess I underestimated him." Lloyd was brimming with curiosity as she clumsily opened the envelope, a…

  • Baby Deer Approaches Cameraman, Licks Lens With No Inhibitions

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:21 am
    Now this is up-close and personal camera work. The YouTube user A Bad Idol recently uploaded a video of a baby deer approaching him and his camera while he filmed the animal from his porch. At first, the man begins to back away as the deer approaches. But then, after reaching his porch, he stops while the deer keeps coming forward. Oddly enough, it seems the young deer just wanted a taste of the camera, perhaps checking to see if it was food. It's possible the deer approached the camera as a result of habituation, where deers become accustomed to being fed by and hanging around humans. That's…
  • Iowa Community Tells Folks To 'Wipe Local' And Buy Toilet Paper In Town To Boost Economy

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:08 am
    An Iowa community's campaign urging residents to buy toilet paper locally was bound to be the butt of jokes. In its own take on the initiative (above), WTFark! goes on a roll. But to the Eldridge, North Scott area, it's serious business. The "Shop, Stay and Wipe Local" drive could boost the area economy by $677,000, according to one estimate. That's a lot of scratch. (Or not, if everyone is wiping properly.)
  • Fred Armisen Finds A New Use For Payphones, Then Answers 8 Random Questions Via Email

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:56 am
    Imagine that you're walking the streets of New York. You pass by a ringing payphone, unaware that there's a former "Saturday Night Live" cast member on the line, just waiting to invite you to a secret comedy show. Do you pick it up? Or do you pass it by? Okay, we know what you're thinking: Wait, payphones are still a thing? But seriously, Fred Armisen presented several New Yorkers with that choice, inviting adventurous passersby to a show at The Comedy Cellar by calling a payphone from across the street. It's all part of a campaign for Heineken called Routine Interruptions, in which old…
  • Here's Leonardo DiCaprio Doing Karate On His Yacht

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:47 am
    Don't ask about it -- be about it, people. Leonardo DiCaprio casually busted out some karate moves on his yacht in Saint-Tropez, France on July 22: Now, we could speculate that DiCaprio is taking up a new career path -- after all, that man bun is totally sumo wrestler chic. Or maybe he's getting into killer shape to prepare for a role with epic fight scenes. Perhaps he's taking precautionary steps to ward off any potential pirate attacks. But we'll leave the judging to Judy. You just do you, Leo.
  • We Spent Half An Hour Talking To Allison Janney About 'Drop Dead Gorgeous'

    24 Jul 2014 | 8:20 am
    1999 was Allison Janney's star-making year. It started with her role as a guidance counselor turned erotic-lit writer in "10 Things I Hate About You" and ended with a small spot as Chris Cooper's withdrawn housewife in Best Picture winner "American Beauty." In between came her defining role on "The West Wing" and a memorable turn as the trailer-park firecracker Loretta in "Drop Dead Gorgeous." When "Drop Dead Gorgeous" opened on July 23, 1999, it was many things: a beauty-pageant satire, a dark teen mockumentary, an A-list ensemble and a gigantic flop. Reviews ranged from mediocre to…

  • 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…

    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…

  • 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…

    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…

    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.

    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…

    Bob Cesca

    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…

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,…

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).

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.

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.

    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? Her partner in the exchange didn't dispute her assertion or even pause before accepting it outright, which pretty much implied that playing any sport which didn't result in a related career was a wasted one. That shocked me. Certainly there's a market out there for professional lugers or people who…

The election of a black man to the land's highest office, indeed to perhaps the most powerful position in the world, has hastened a kind of cultural mitosis, a cleaving of the body politic of the United States, forcing people to one side or the other.

  • NASA-Studie zeigt: Vor zwei Jahren entging die Erde nur knapp einer Katastrophe

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:42 am
    Vor zwei Jahren entging die Menschheit möglicherweise nur knapp einer Katastrophe. 2012 verfehlten zwei gefährliche Plasma-Wolken der Sonne die Erde. Wissenschaftler nennen diese Phänomene Sonnenwind oder -sturm und in der Regel sind sie völlig ungefährlich - in Teilen der Erde lassen sie den Horizont im wunderschönen Polarlicht strahlen. Kategorie Fotoband. Nicht so der Sonnensturm vom 23. Juli 2012, der stärkste seit 150 Jahren. Er gehört in die Kategorie Katastrophe.

    Kaum ein Thema beherrscht die deutsche Medienlandschaft im Moment so sehr wie der eskalierende Konflikt zwischen Palästina und Israel im Gazastreifen. Kein Wunder also, dass auch die deutsche Rap-Landschaft die Ereignisse nicht unkommentiert lässt. Die Bilder von verstümmelten oder toten palästinensischen Kindern berühren die Menschen rund um die Welt. Man muss keinen arabischen Migrationshintergrund haben- wie es bei vielen berühmten deutschen Rappern der Fall ist - um die Geschehnisse in Gaza anzuprangern. So nutzen auch die Musiker in Deutschland ihren Ruhm, um die Aufmerksamkeit auf…

    The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is a massive piece of financial reform legislation that I voted for and was signed by President Obama in 2010. Was it perfect? Of course not. No massive piece of legislation is perfect -- and that's why we constantly work to improve the law. Read more: Rep.

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?

    24 Jul 2014 | 10:17 am
    POLITIQUE - Tout a commencé par une petite phrase relayée par Le Figaro. Dans l'avion qui l'emmenait mercredi à Madrid, le premier ministre Manuel Valls a une nouvelle fois exprimé son désaccord avec les élus qui manifestent leur soutien à la Palestine, au risque d'être associés à des slogans antisémites.
