  • Airbnb To Allow American Travelers To Book Lodging In Cuba

    Politics - The Huffington Post
    2 Apr 2015 | 1:34 am
    HAVANA (AP) — The popular online home-rental service Airbnb will allow American travelers to book lodging in Cuba starting Thursday in the most significant U.S. business expansion on the island since the declaration of detente between the two countries late last year. For a half-century, the U.S. trade embargo has blocked such businesses from entering the Cuban market. In January, however, the Obama administration loosened a series of restrictions on U.S. business in an attempt to encourage the growth of the island's small private sector. Airbnb searches for "Cuba" will now turn up more…

    A "chemical safety" bill is rapidly moving through the U.S. Senate. Writing in Bloomberg, Paul Barrett decries the "hyperbole" of those of us who are calling for stronger health and environmental protections than the industry-backed bill delivers. Barrett notes that many agree that our current chemical law is broken, but who could have believed the Senate would come up with a bill that could make things worse? This should come as no surprise, given that the proposal from Senators David Vitter and Tom Udall was recently revealed to have the chemical industry's digital fingerprints all over it.

    28 Mar 2015 | 9:00 pm
    This was a week of both progress and regression. First, Sen. Ted Cruz kicked off his presidential campaign and wasted no time showing what kind of candidate he'll be by claiming that, in the wake of 9/11, he stopped listening to rock and switched to country music. Finding a way, 14 years later, to use 9/11 to pander and divide is as impressive as it is cynical. Next, Indiana Governor Mike Pence found an even older way to divide, signing into law a bill that would, essentially, legalize anti-gay discrimination. On the other side of the progress/regression ledger, the five-year anniversary of…

  • Introducing HuffPost Gratitude: Starting the Conversation on What We're Thankful For

    Arianna Huffington
    23 Mar 2015 | 9:07 pm
    Gratitude has always been one of the most powerful emotions for me. And it's no coincidence that "grace" and "gratitude" have the same Latin root, "gratus." Whenever we find ourselves in a stop-the-world-I-want-to-get-off mindset, we can remember that there is another way and open ourselves to grace. And it often starts with taking a moment to be grateful for this day, for being alive -- for anything. That's why I'm delighted to announce HuffPost Gratitude, a new section in partnership with American Greetings, featuring stories that illuminate gratitude's transformative power to bring a…

    An Indiana pizzeria under fire for saying it would refuse to cater a gay wedding shut down on Wednesday after its owners said they received threatening messages. However, a GoFundMe page set up for Memories Pizza in Walkerton has raised more than $40,000 in just six hours. The pizzeria made national headlines this week when its owners called the business a "Christian establishment" and said the state's contentious Religious Freedom Restoration Act would allow it to refuse to make pizzas for a hypothetical gay wedding. That led to a flood of angry reviews on Yelp as well as the threatening…

Now, Stroud is sharing his story, both as a cautionary tale and as a call to action for ending the death penalty. Stroud appeared on MSNBC Wednesday night with a warning to prosecutors: "They should take heed in the fact that if something does go wrong, as it did in this case, it will be with them until the day they leave this earth." Ford was exonerated in 2014 after nearly 30 years on death row. He emerged from Louisiana's Angola…

  • The Road to Parity: 30 Is the New 50

    1 Apr 2015 | 4:04 pm
    By Jay Newton-Small, Washington correspondent for TIME. She is currently a Spring 2015 IOP Resident Fellow. Depending on who you ask, it will take women anywhere from 25 years to a century to reach parity in Congress. And, sadly, Congress is ahead of the private sector where female representation on corporate boards has stalled at 17 percent for the past decade. But there is some good news: women may not have to wait decades to have an impact. Studies show that somewhere between 20 percent and 30 percent in any body -- a legislature, a corporate board, a Navy ship or an appellate court -- and…
  • Religious Freedom - You've Got to Be Carefully Taught to Hate

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:55 pm
    Last week Indiana signed the now highly controversial "religious freedom" bill into law. Senate Bill 101, which takes effect July 1, prohibits state or local governments from substantially burdening a person's ability to exercise their religion. Arkansas is now considering a similar bill. But these two states are not alone. Forty percent of U.S. states now have religious freedom bills similar to Indiana. Although not written to specifically target LGBT persons, there is now well-grounded concern that such laws will lead to increases in discrimination based on sexual orientation. In addition…
  • Losing Ground

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:47 pm
    Despite the vital importance of coastal wetlands and the public and private efforts to save them, the nation is losing the preservation battle. According to the latest National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) analysis, more than 1500 square miles of these precious wetlands were eliminated, mostly by development, between 1996 and 2011. This is particularly bad news for the more than 125 million Americans who live on or near the coast. Depending on location, they can be beneficiaries of these fast-disappearing wetland buffers that mitigate the impacts of super storm surges and inexorable…
  • Top 10 Reasons Why States Should Ignore Senator McConnell's 'Just Say No' Advice on Carbon Pollution

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) recently penned an op-ed and a letter to governors urging states to refuse to cooperate with the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan to cut dangerous carbon pollution from power plants under. Governors aren't rushing to jump on his bandwagon. They know that if a state doesn't write its own clean air plan, then the Clean Air Act requires EPA to regulate the state's power plants directly. McConnell's call to "Just Say No" is a bad idea on many other levels too. Here 10 more reasons why states should reject the Kentucky lawmaker's…

  • Remembering Jack Freeman: Jack of Journalism, Jack of the World

    1 Apr 2015 | 4:25 am
    He was always "Jack" - never Jacob, his given name - and his byline at news organizations that he worked at for nearly seven decades all around the world was always "Jack Freeman." He would have been 82 years old this month, but his energy, his enthusiasm, his sheer zest for the world of words had no timeline to them. Ask him to go to Nepal, and Jack was already out of the door. Ask him to catch that midnight flight to Durban, and Jack's bags were already packed. Ask him to travel to Tokyo, and Jack happily displayed his specially carved chopsticks that he'd acquired in Vietnam. Australia?

I'm an Atari 2600 guy who learned to edit with VHS, and teeny-tiny bits of film plus Scotch tape, so I dive headlong for our common ground: USC's School of Cinematic Arts. It turns out that Mr. Wong also cut actual film there -- in 2008, their penultimate class to do so -- but he offers further practical insight: "When you break it down," says Freddie, "I think the fundamentals of filmmaking, of…

The former Speaker of the House told HuffPost Live on Wednesday that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence's promise to fix his state's law, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson's decision to hold off on signing a similar bill and Connecticut Gov.

    HAVANA (AP) — The popular online home-rental service Airbnb will allow American travelers to book lodging in Cuba starting Thursday in the most significant U.S. business expansion on the island since the declaration of detente between the two countries late last year. For a half-century, the U.S. trade embargo has blocked such businesses from entering the Cuban market. In January, however, the Obama administration loosened a series of restrictions on U.S. business in an attempt to encourage the growth of the island's small private sector.

    Co-authored by Cassie Rosengren Salesmanship is arguably the world's oldest and most timeless profession. While innovation has driven the evolution of man for millions of years, salesmanship (alongside marketing) has been the engine that keeps innovation running. Walter A.

  • Seattle Ushers In $15 Minimum Wage Amid National Debate

    1 Apr 2015 | 5:30 pm
    By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE, April 1 (Reuters) - Seattle's new minimum wage law took effect on Wednesday amid mixed reaction from businesses, giving some workers a bump in compensation on the way to a $15 hourly wage, among the highest big-city pay floors in the United States. Seattle became the first major U.S. city to commit to such a high basic wage when Mayor Ed Murray proposed the plan last May. The move has since been followed to varying degrees by other cities such as San Francisco, as labor groups and workers pressure retailers and fast-food companies to pay a "living wage." "Today…

  • Strategies for Saying No: When and How to Turn Down Opportunities

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:10 pm
    When I quit my job two years ago, I knew I made the right choice for my career and myself. However, once the initial excitement passed, I was afraid that I would just sit in front of my computer 12 hours a day, five days a week, and no offers or opportunities would come my way. After spending a lot of sleepless nights worrying about landing clients, I dove into building my business and was thrilled to find that (luckily) my fears were unfounded. I worked hard and the opportunities started rolling in, and I excitedly agreed to them all. However, I realized very quickly that all of these yes's…
  • 10 Ways to Easily Sabotage Your Success!

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:02 pm
    1. Be an adrenaline junkie who thrives on the thrill of the chase, the juggle, the STRUGGLE! Hey - you wouldn't want to actually GET there now, would you? How freaking boring would that be?! Best to keep things so you have to juggle like a BOSS and be proud of being ABLE to handle that stuff where most wouldn't.

  • Don't Fear the Impostor Syndrome - Fight It

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:03 pm
    It's one of the ironies of professional life that those most deserving of praise are often the least able to accept it. I've seen this in colleagues of all ages and levels of seniority. This irony is also known as "impostor syndrome;" the feeling that any time now, someone's going to discover that you don't belong in your job and that you've just been fooling everyone all along. And it can manifest as someone who's a little too open, a little too emotionally honest, in their leadership style. Impostor syndrome affects college students and CEOs alike, but lately there's been particular focus…

  • Airbnb To Allow American Travelers To Book Lodging In Cuba

    2 Apr 2015 | 1:34 am
    HAVANA (AP) — The popular online home-rental service Airbnb will allow American travelers to book lodging in Cuba starting Thursday in the most significant U.S. business expansion on the island since the declaration of detente between the two countries late last year. For a half-century, the U.S. trade embargo has blocked such businesses from entering the Cuban market. In January, however, the Obama administration loosened a series of restrictions on U.S. business in an attempt to encourage the growth of the island's small private sector. Airbnb searches for "Cuba" will now turn up more…

    1 Apr 2015 | 9:58 pm
    An Indiana pizzeria under fire for saying it would refuse to cater a gay wedding shut down on Wednesday after its owners said they received threatening messages. However, a GoFundMe page set up for Memories Pizza in Walkerton has raised more than $40,000 in just six hours. The pizzeria made national headlines this week when its owners called the business a "Christian establishment" and said the state's contentious Religious Freedom Restoration Act would allow it to refuse to make pizzas for a hypothetical gay wedding. That led to a flood of angry reviews on Yelp as well as the threatening…

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Attorneys for millionaire Robert Durst, who faces a California murder charge, say Durst's arrest in New Orleans on weapons charges was invalid, in part because the FBI searched his hotel room illegally. Durst, who waived extradition to California on the murder charge, was arrested last month at the J.W. Marriott hotel in New Orleans. He is set for a Thursday hearing on Louisiana charges of possession of a firearm by a felon and illegally possessing a firearm along with an illegal drug. Items recovered from his hotel room included a .38-caliber revolver and about 5 ounces…

He was an idol, an icon, and an inspiration. I wasn't yet 30 in April 1997, when I met him at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills for our interview at the press junket for Night Falls On Manhattan, one of his solid, authentic urban dramas that blended crime, politics and personal revelations that became his signature.

The tour, which kicked off this past February, finally made it to the band's hometown of New York City. NYC did not disappoint in welcoming them home, selling out the venue in 30 minutes. Their second, upcoming show in New York--at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 7th--is also sold out. Opening for MisterWives was Handsome Ghost, followed by Børns.

No "high sticking" from this talented musician, each Q&A is fun and as pleasant as a summer breeze.

The latter analogy didn't work. Anyway, read on! It's 5…
  • Movie Review: Woman in Gold -- The Art of Justice

    1 Apr 2015 | 1:51 pm
    Does it matter that Woman in Gold, Simon Curtis' moving drama about a woman seeking the return of art the Nazis stole from her family 50 years earlier, seems stenciled from a familiar template? If the plot of this film - with its tale of a young professional man cajoled into taking on a monolithic institution at the request (insistence?) of an older woman - sounds familiar, you probably saw 2013's Philomena. Except, instead of an aging Catholic matron hunting for the baby that was taken from her, Woman in Gold deals with an aging Jewish woman trying to reclaim part of her family heritage, a…

  • New Jersey School Cancels Common As Commencement Speaker Over 'A Song For Assata'

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:41 pm
    UNION, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey's Kean University has cancelled hip-hop artist Common as commencement speaker after police voiced concerns over a song about a woman convicted of killing a police officer who fled to Cuba. The school announced the Academy Award winner's selection on Monday, but said on its social media sites on Tuesday night that he would not be the speaker. University spokeswoman Susan Kayne told The Record newspaper the announcement was made prematurely. Common won the Academy Award for composing the song "Glory" for the 2014 film "Selma."

Jason Bateman plays a newly married homeowner who runs into an old acquaintance named Gordo (Joel Edgerton, also making his directorial debut). Gordo does not want to leave Bateman and his wife (Rebecca Hall) alone, and what unfolds after he is asked not to contact them again is full-on stalker territory. Secrets are revealed, people are panicking and we are getting chills. There's even an ominous game of Simon Says, and you know that is nothing but terrifying.

"You show up and you know nothing, which is kind of the fun of television. It's really scary because you open up the script, and I guess in some shows you go, 'Oh, I'm gonna die.' And…

    SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Visitors and Oregon locals lined up inside Portland International Airport to have their photos taken with an odd celebrity — a piece of nearly 30-year-old carpet. Ever since Oregonian's learned the iconic teal carpeting at the airport known as PDX was being torn up, the floor covering has become an online superstar. More than 40,000 "foot selfies" — photos people took of their feet on the carpet — were plastered on Instagram. Demand for actual bits of the carpet have been so high airport officials are giving four local vendors 1,000 square yards each to incorporate…

This is certainly a first world problem, but there is a serious lack in the retail market and someone, somewhere, should immediately whip up a prototype and audition for "Shark Tank," because THIS IS A MILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS IDEA. Look, I'm not a fancy girl. By any means. I don't wear fancy bras when I'm not nursing (somewhere, my husband is nodding sadly). But apparently, the Nursing Bra Designers of the world have…

This feeling came drifting into my consciousness after a few brief sneak peeks at spring. It was a feeling I was certainly not expecting and one I am wholly unaccustomed to experiencing. Me, who starts to panic when the leaves start falling. Me, who has written more than my share on the negative aspects of winter. Me, who vacillates between extreme aggravation and total denial when the temperatures drop and the snow starts falling -- I'm going to MISS winter?

    1 Apr 2015 | 11:43 am
    Lupita Nyong'o graces the cover of the May issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, and it's a welcome sight indeed. The cover represents a stunning image of a black woman that should be seen regularly on newsstands. The Oscar-winning actress acknowledges that she's in a "unique position;" people the world over connect with her due to a "limited representation" of minorities. But here's the thing: Labeling Nyong'o as the "new face of beauty" is a harsh reminder that the fashion industry encourages a standard of beauty where black women such as Nyong'o are considered "exotic," or worse, simply ignored.

Now don't get me wrong -- I don't mean chivalry in its truest sense (as in a code of conduct in which people treat one another -- regardless of gender -- with courtesy and respect). That is the kind of chivalry I can get behind -- by all means, the world needs more of that kind of chivalry! The kind I am talking about is the kind that is more generally referred to as taking place between men and women. The…

Although royal babies are almost always given previously used royal names, William and Kate might find they have a little more wiggle room with this second child. But probably not. Brits are big on betting, and royal offspring tend to incite a tsunami of wagering activity. As of this moment, the odds for the second baby's name heavily favor Alice, which currently stands at 2-1 at bookmaker William Hill , 7-2…

    Baby Boomers like me can directly relate to two proposed markers of the current geological epoch, which has been increasingly referred to as "the Anthropocene" due to the unique stamp humans have made on the planet that sustains them. The markers, global radiation and plastics, arose dramatically in the mid-twentieth century and represent the dawn of this new era of our own making. The mention of "plastics" reminds us boomers of the iconic scene from the movie The Graduate, in which the adrift post-graduate Benjamin (played by Dustin Hoffman) gets a quick glimpse into a petroleum-drenched…

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The stray dog was hit by a car, clubbed in the head and left for dead in a ditch in Washington state. Days later, the 1-year-old bully breed mix showed up sickly and covered in dirt at a nearby farm. Now, the dog that defied death is recovering with the help of good Samaritans and veterinarians at Washington State University. The dog used to roam the streets getting scraps of food from people in Moses Lake, a farm town about 100 miles west of Spokane. About a month ago, she was struck by a car.

  • Protesters Block Construction Of Thirty Meter Telescope On Hawaiian Volcano

    1 Apr 2015 | 4:29 pm
    HILO, Hawaii (AP) -- Protesters blocked a road this week as part of a push to prevent construction of a giant telescope near the top of a mountain held sacred by Native Hawaiians. More than 50 protesters formed a roadblock Monday that stopped about 15 vehicles carrying workers up Mauna Kea on the Big Island, the Hawaii Tribune-Herald newspaper in Hilo reported ( http://ow.ly/L2He7 ). Some see the $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope project as desecrating the peak. The protesters marched back and forth across the road outside the Mauna Kea visitor center as contemporary and traditional…
  • Captivating Underwater Engagement Photos Will Leave You Breathless

    1 Apr 2015 | 4:12 pm
    Wedding photographers and married couple Adam and Shawn-Marie Ravazzano had wanted to shoot underwater engagement photos since moving to Maui last year. In March, the Ravazzanos, of Love and Water Photography, found the perfect subjects in their friends and real-life engaged couple Leiha'aheo Kamahele-Beeck and Maika Dias of Oahu. Credit: Love and Water Photography Both the bride- and groom-to-be are experienced divers, so they were perfect for the shoot (and that's why they look so natural and graceful under the water).

  • Birds in the Anthropocene

    1 Apr 2015 | 5:18 pm
    Baby Boomers like me can directly relate to two proposed markers of the current geological epoch, which has been increasingly referred to as "the Anthropocene" due to the unique stamp humans have made on the planet that sustains them. The markers, global radiation and plastics, arose dramatically in the mid-twentieth century and represent the dawn of this new era of our own making. The mention of "plastics" reminds us boomers of the iconic scene from the movie The Graduate, in which the adrift post-graduate Benjamin (played by Dustin Hoffman) gets a quick glimpse into a petroleum-drenched…
  • Losing Ground

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:47 pm
    Despite the vital importance of coastal wetlands and the public and private efforts to save them, the nation is losing the preservation battle. According to the latest National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) analysis, more than 1500 square miles of these precious wetlands were eliminated, mostly by development, between 1996 and 2011. This is particularly bad news for the more than 125 million Americans who live on or near the coast. Depending on location, they can be beneficiaries of these fast-disappearing wetland buffers that mitigate the impacts of super storm surges and inexorable…
  • Top 10 Reasons Why States Should Ignore Senator McConnell's 'Just Say No' Advice on Carbon Pollution

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) recently penned an op-ed and a letter to governors urging states to refuse to cooperate with the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan to cut dangerous carbon pollution from power plants under. Governors aren't rushing to jump on his bandwagon. They know that if a state doesn't write its own clean air plan, then the Clean Air Act requires EPA to regulate the state's power plants directly. McConnell's call to "Just Say No" is a bad idea on many other levels too. Here 10 more reasons why states should reject the Kentucky lawmaker's…
  • Intellect, Heart and Collaboration: The Keys for a Green Future

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:10 pm
    By Logan Moore (OH) Last week, I was given the opportunity to visualize the world from a different perspective. The EF Global Student Leaders Summit in San Jose, Costa Rica, featured several keynote speakers, including well-known primatologist and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall. Everyone in attendance was deeply moved not only by Dr. Goodall's contributions to the scientific community but also by her ability to speak about life through the lens of ultimate experience. During the talk, Goodall noted, "Isn't it strange our intellect doesn't compare to the destruction we create?" Finding…
  • The New 'Bait and Switch' on Seafood

    1 Apr 2015 | 1:36 pm
    For years sushi fanatics and fish enthusiasts could rest easy their carp was mercury-free, white-tuna top-grade, and their organic fish as fresh and USDA-certified as its farm-to-table brethren. Yet, it turns out the les fruits de mer, or "the fruits of the sea," are not what they seem. Seafood fraud is booming, and it ranges from mislabeling our favorite menu items to overcharging customers, to poor oversight of the pesticides that go into our fish. The recent AP report on "slave fishing" is only the tip of the iceberg for an industry plagued by fraud, deception, and potential health risk.

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:28 pm
    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Not every veterinarian would call it paradise. Scott Sims gets to far-flung locales in the Hawaiian Islands by flying a plane he built himself or by biking, riding an ATV or swimming to reach sick or injured animals. He will wrangle overweight pigs, scuba-dive to free a sea turtle tangled in a net and patch up patients in unexpected places, operating in a barn or the back of a truck. Dr. Scott Sims. He stars in Nat Geo Wild's show "Aloha Vet" that debuted March 21. He treats pets, of course, but also takes flight or bumps along Kauai's lone cross-island road to help wild…

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:08 pm
    Finally, a court has ruled in favor of the women victims of long-ago rapes and sexual assaults. A South African judge has convicted a one-time mixed doubles tennis partner of America's Billie Jean King of rape and sexual assault decades after the incidents occurred. Judge Bert Bam said he believed the three women who made rape and sexual assault allegations against now 75-year-old Robert Hewitt, a Grand Slam doubles tennis champion, arising from incidents occurring in the '80s and '90s when he was coaching them, according to an Associated Press story by Lynsey Chutel, reporting from…

    When Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia faced off Tuesday in their final mayoral runoff debate, it was the event's moderator, rather than either candidate, who found himself in the middle of the story. About midway through the televised debate, moderator Phil Ponce of local PBS affiliate WTTW asked Garcia about his 31-year-old son’s arrest record, which includes charges of felony aggravated assault and aggravated battery to a police officer, along with allegations of gang ties. “Is he still a gang member?” Ponce asked.

  • 10 of Illinois' Safest Cities

    1 Apr 2015 | 12:27 pm
    Illinois is home to 19 of the country's 100 safest cities with more than 25,000 people living in them, says Neighborhood Scout. Though the No. 1 safest city in the country is Zionsville, Ind., with just over 2.6 crimes per 1,000 residents every year, Illinois can still claim the country's second safest city. In Illinois, a person's chances of becoming a victim of a violent crime is 1 in 263 in a given year. The United States sees 37.9 crimes per square mile every year. Illinois' rate is slightly higher, at 38 crimes per square mile per year. Here are 10 of the safest Illinois cities: 19. Park…
  • Over 100 People Were Killed by Police in March. How Many More Will It Take?

    Here's a statistic for you: It's been 31 days since the release of the White House Task Force on 21st Century Policing report, but the number of fatal police encounters is already over 100 and counting. That's an average of more than three people killed each day in March by police in America. Too many of this month's victims fit a profile we know all too well -- unarmed men of color, some of whom have psychiatric disabilities. Victims like Charly Keunang in Los Angeles, California; Tony Robinson in Madison, Wisconsin; Anthony Hill in DeKalb County, Georgia; and Brandon Jones in Cleveland,…

    March 31 was U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock's last day in office after resigning from Congress following questions about possibly improper spending. But while the resignation and fall from public favor have been a disappointment for Illinoisans and the national Republican Party, Capitol Fax's Rich Miller says Schock could still have better days ahead of him. Miller writes: Just eight weeks ago, Schock was widely believed to be next in line to chair the National Republican Congressional Committee. But his rapid fall from grace ruined his career and deprived the NRCC of a chance to project a far more…
  • Not So Simple Machines

    My second grade daughter has lived through an extreme fixation on the study of simple machines at school. My sixth and eighth grade kids also studied simple machines when they were in second grade, but it involved a few worksheets and a classroom project designed to catch a leprechaun. My current second grader has studied simple machines via classroom discussions, sing along songs, the leprechaun project, worksheets, homework, study guides, quizzes AND a final test. What follows is the conversation I had with my eight year old after finding the "Simple Machine Test" in her backpack. The…

  • Airbnb To Allow American Travelers To Book Lodging In Cuba

    2 Apr 2015 | 1:34 am
    HAVANA (AP) — The popular online home-rental service Airbnb will allow American travelers to book lodging in Cuba starting Thursday in the most significant U.S. business expansion on the island since the declaration of detente between the two countries late last year. For a half-century, the U.S. trade embargo has blocked such businesses from entering the Cuban market. In January, however, the Obama administration loosened a series of restrictions on U.S. business in an attempt to encourage the growth of the island's small private sector. Airbnb searches for "Cuba" will now turn up more…

However, a GoFundMe page set up for Memories Pizza in Walkerton has raised more than $40,000 in just six hours. The pizzeria made national headlines this week when its owners called the business a "Christian establishment" and said the state's contentious Religious Freedom Restoration Act would allow it to refuse to make pizzas for a hypothetical gay wedding. That led to a flood of angry reviews on Yelp as well as the threatening…

The attack bore the hallmarks of a Somali Islamic extremist group. Terrified students streamed out of buildings, some young men shirtless, as arriving police officers hunkered down, taking cover.

    It's 7 p.m., but it feels like midnight. The city of Patan in Nepal is already sleeping. The large city subsumed in the greater Kathmandu area is known to have a calm character compared to the capital's buzz. But as the sun sets, Patan quiets down bafflingly fast. The reason is electricity, or more precisely, the lack of it. A couple of construction workers wonder upon a pile of bricks, illuminated by trucks headlights. They communicate quietly. Infrequent mopeds and strollers pass by, even the stray dogs are quietly resting. Across the street two men are sitting on a candle-lid street side…

Most significant at the moment: the ascension of Podemos in Spain. Hardly one year old, Podemos is already vying for the top spot in Spanish polls. This precocious party vows to throw Spain's weight behind the tug-of-war Greece is already having with the European Union, further testing the limits of Eurozone coherence.

  • Palestine Needs Unity to Pursue War Crimes Case Against Israel

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:31 pm
    AMMAN -- The state of Palestine officially became a member of the International Criminal Court on April 1, allowing it to prosecute Israel for crimes of war. The distance between the ability to sue and an actual conviction is going to be long and arduous and will require a totally new strategy. And such a strategy will require an ingredient that has been missing for year -- national unity. While any new Palestinian strategy must be focused on the ultimate goal of ending the occupation, it is important not to continue using the issue of the ICC as a bargaining chip. Past delays have been made…

Brook asked random men and women for directions in Grand Central station, and then, when the moment felt right, went in for a kiss. It went about as well as you would expect. Got to admire the guts to brave through these painfully awkward, but funny encounters. We won't say if she was successful or not, but it's an entertaining social experiment. Heh, that we wouldn't recommend.

    Along with the "like" option, many people think Facebook should also have a "dislike" option to click on. That would be a waste of time, of course. Facebook already has a dislike button. By not acknowledging a post, one is essentially telling his or her Facebook friend that they hate it. So when you post that photograph of generic vacation scenery, or an image of your Florida thermostat during the winter, or your fifth selfie in the last hour... ask yourself why the "likes" are so few and far between. Actually, a more interesting dimension would be for Facebook to add a "love" option. I mean,…
  • Spring Cleaning Life Hacks

    1 Apr 2015 | 12:14 pm
    Green stuff is poking up around my driveway. I think they are daffodils, but I planted them too close to the edge of the driveway and they get trampled on before they can bloom. But still... Yay Spring! We've reached that time of year where we are supposed to do something called "spring cleaning." I'm under the impression that means we're supposed to clean springs, which seems an enormous waste of time. I mean, we can barely be bothered to change our sheets at reasonable intervals, much less clean the bed springs. Besides, we have one of those memory foam beds. There aren't even any springs…
  • Parenting's 10 Plagues

    1 Apr 2015 | 10:56 am
    On Friday, we'll be celebrating Passover. On the holiday that marks the freedom of my ancestors, my kids and I are being held captive at home by a particularly vicious cold -- in saying that, I'm referring both to the weather and my kids' medical condition. The bible recounts the 10 plagues with which God struck the Egyptian Pharaoh and his people: Blood, frogs, lice, wild flies, death of livestock, boils, storms of fire, locusts, darkness and first-born death. Home confinement opened my eyes to a whole new set of modern-day plagues. So, without further ado, I give you parenting's 10 plagues:…

    Need some love advice? Ask a Beastie Boy. As part of Rookie's "Ask A Grown Man" series, Adam Horovitz, aka Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys, answered teen girls' questions about dating insecurities, what to do when you're in a relationship but you're just not feelin' it and being scared to have your first kiss. "My advice and opinion, is to go ahead and kiss. Go ahead and do it," said Adam.

  • Girl Wanders Around Grand Central Trying To Kiss Strangers And It's Hilariously Awkward

    1 Apr 2015 | 1:41 pm
    NYC comedian Farah Brook had a more ... forward approach to pranking this time of year. Brook asked random men and women for directions in Grand Central station, and then, when the moment felt right, went in for a kiss. It went about as well as you would expect. Got to admire the guts to brave through these painfully awkward, but funny encounters. We won't say if she was successful or not, but it's an entertaining social experiment. Heh, that we wouldn't recommend.
  • Madame Tussauds Appoints 'Tissue Attendant' For Mourning Zayn Malik Fans

    1 Apr 2015 | 12:52 pm
    One Direction fans have not taken the news of Zayn Malik's departure lightly. Their reaction has been so intense, in fact, that Madame Tussauds in London said it had to appoint a "tissue attendant" as fans mourned beside Malik's wax figure. The company had 150 boxes of tissues delivered to the wax museum and tapped 18-year-old attraction assistant Grace Cadden as "tissue attendant," according to Yahoo UK. "Directioners that have visited since the news broke have enjoyed seeing all of the boys together and singing along with their songs -- many have also been teary eyed, but we've had a…

  • My Teen Daughter Asked for 17,000 Shoes: Why I Said Yes

    Dawn Teo
    23 Mar 2015 | 1:18 pm
    This past November, my husband and I adopted our Mackenzie from foster care. She was only six months away from her 18th birthday and had spent more than half her life in the care of the state. "Mom, we need to do something to show people the magnitude of foster care in Arizona. Most people can't even picture 17,000 kids, much less understand just how many of us there are." Mackenzie said, one day out of the blue. "Let's create a video. We can get 17,000 pieces of candy or something and give people a visual." Mackenzie knows too much about foster care. She lived in 26 "placements," which she…
  • 99% in DC: We Deserve to Be Heard

    8 Dec 2011 | 10:11 am
    WASHINGTON -- Thousands of protesters have descended on Capitol Hill to bring attention to the inequalities between the bottom 99 and the top 1 percent of Americans. Much of the media coverage has talked about the income inequalities, but those who stormed congressional offices and powerful K Street offices this week had a more specific message: The inequalities that matter are in power and opportunity. Activists have come from every corner of America to the nation's capital to recall that it's the middle class that's too big to fail. "[Congress] sees an indicator that a big financial…

    Staffers of at least one Congressional office, Rep. Tim Griffin (R-Ark.), distributed "homework" to Congressional town hall attendees in the form of a "watch list" that features photographs, personal information and pointed questions about six activists who are constituents of Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.), each of whom was openly critical of Webster at his town halls earlier this year. The handout, which also included an email sent by MoveOn to its members instructing them on how to be effective at town halls, can be downloaded by clicking here (PDF).

    The Department of Defense (DOD) is at the genesis of large-scale integration of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) into its non-tactical ground fleet as part of federal government efforts toward expanding usage of alternative fuel vehicles. The DOD has identified certain segments of the non-tactical fleet that are "ripe for achieving cost parity," according to Camron Gorguinpour of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Environment, and Logistics. There is no budget line for this project. Rather, the DOD is "investigating opportunities" to work within its…
  • SB1070 Goes to U.S. Supreme Court, SB1070 Author to Be Recalled

    Dawn Teo
    10 May 2011 | 5:44 pm
    After drafting Arizona's controversial new immigration law SB1070 last year, Arizona state Senate President Russell Pearce held the spotlight and became the anti-immigration poster boy in Arizona and across the nation. One year later, Pearce is on the verge of being recalled, and his pet legislation, SB1070, has been neutered by a federal court and is on its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In April, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's injunction against the most controversial parts of SB1070. Monday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announced the…

    Bonnie Fuller
    22 Sep 2014 | 10:44 am
    JLo, you just redefined the image that the world has of a 45-year-old woman. You celebrate the sexual power of a beautiful big booty in your new "Booty" video and destroy the idea that women over 40 are over. Jennifer Lopez, when you and Iggy Azalea, 24, shake up a storm, singing and showing off your womanly backsides in your just-released video, "Booty," you're doing more than just getting sexy. Yes, you've created the most sensual music video of 2014 and maybe ever, but you've also made a statement about female sexuality and beauty that's historically empowering. Since the dawn of time,…
  • 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, It Was Sexist to Ask GM CEO Mary Barra If She's a Good Mom

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

  • Indiana Gov. Mike Pence Continues to Dodge the Discrimination Question

    Bob Cesca
    31 Mar 2015 | 11:31 am
    If there's an upside to Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN) signing the pro-discrimination SB101 "Religious Freedom Restoration Act" (RFRA) into law last week, it's this: the bigots, homophobes and neo-segregationists have been coaxed out of the woodwork, exposing themselves for what they really believe. My Twitter feed is festooned with these people, now more than ever -- not even during the Hobby Lobby debate have they swarmed like they are today. Elsewhere, an audio recording has been circulating that a restaurant owner who called into an Indianapolis radio station and, despite the incredulity and…
  • Ted Cruz Is Trying and Failing to Weasel Out of His Obamacare Duplicity

    Bob Cesca
    27 Mar 2015 | 5:08 pm
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is now apparently undecided how he'll buy insurance, backing away from his Obamacare announcement earlier in the week. Either way, Cruz is a master at what Al Franken used to call "weasel words" -- talking points that are carefully constructed to sound legitimate but really aren't at all. Come to think of it, Stephen Colbert famously referred to this sort of thing as "truthiness." Cruz is especially on his game when the topic of the complicated Affordable Care Act comes up because even top-shelf reporters don't quite grasp all of the ins and outs of Obamacare and,…
  • Your Handy Guide to Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz

    Bob Cesca
    24 Mar 2015 | 1:11 pm
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has hopped aboard the GOP clown car, announcing his candidacy on Monday at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University. Let's talk about Cruz by way of a refresher on what he's all about. Doh! Canada Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1970 to an American mother and a foreign (Cuban) father. Sound familiar? The only difference between the presidency-related birth circumstances of President Obama and Ted Cruz is that Obama was born in the United States and Cruz wasn't. Of course this doesn't matter because Obama is black with a funny-sounding "exotic" name and Cruz is a…
  • This Year's CPAC Speakers: Three Generations of Stupid

    Bob Cesca
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:20 pm
    Sadly, the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference is over. And while none of the speakers used Super Big Gulps as props this year, the level of stupid reached all new depths. One speaker after another proved that far-right conservatives are more interested in thoughtless applause and bumper-sticker slogans than serious policymaking. For example, Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson delivered a speech in which he talked about sexually transmitted diseases. I give you CPAC science, by Phil Robertson: I mean, I'm reading this stuff from the CDC and it says, 'how many sexual encounters does…

    Bob Cesca
    16 Feb 2015 | 5:22 pm
    In case you haven't heard, Boyhood is an almost universally beloved movie by Richard Linklater, starring Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke, about a boy named Mason, who does various things such as growing incrementally older over the course of 12 years. How did Linklater and his cast achieve this miraculous visual effect? They filmed the movie sporadically beginning in 2002 and wrapped in 2014 -- 12 years. Did I mention it took 12 years to film, and that it's universally beloved? Literally everyone loves it. Everyone. It's received a lengthy roster of palmarès and…

  • Impeaching the Presidential Campaign Announcement

    Lincoln Mitchell
    30 Mar 2015 | 4:49 am
    Last week, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz became the first candidate to formally enter the race for the Republican nomination for president. The Republican field is likely to be very crowded, but until recently there were no official candidates. Accordingly, one of the first thing that Cruz's announcement did was draw attention to the absurdity of the "campaign announcement." More.

    28 Mar 2015 | 7:41 am
    Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reid's decision not to seek reelection in 2016 will mark the end of his impressive 30-year career in the Senate. Mr. Reid, one of the least charismatic politicians to rise to his post but who mastered the Senate arcane rules to his party's advantage, anointed Chuck Schumer as his successor. "I feel very comfortable about this continuity of leadership with Schumer. He will be elected to replace me in 22 months." Additionally, another possible contender for the top job, Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, has indicated that he will step aside to allow Mr. Schumer's…

    Last Saturday night, while having dinner at an Italian place on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx with my family, I mentioned my cousin in Israel. A few minutes later, the middle-aged Italian-American man sharing our table leaned over. "I wasn't eavesdropping," he said, "but I heard you mention Israel." Soon he told me how much he liked Benjamin Netanyahu, and how much disdain he had for President Obama, leading to a discussion of the Israeli elections, which, at that point, were still a few days away. It felt like a long time since the only Americans who paid attention to elections in Israel were…
  • A Warning From Chicago for Hillary Clinton and the Democrats

    Lincoln Mitchell
    16 Mar 2015 | 10:22 am
    The runoff election for mayor of Chicago between incumbent Rahm Emanuel and challenger Jesus "Chuy" Garcia is a reminder of why it is so important for Hillary Clinton to have no serious opponent in the Democratic Primary for president. Ms. Clinton and Mr. Emanuel are not exactly similar candidates, and they are running in different kinds of races. Mr. Emanuel is a divisive incumbent who has had a very controversial first term, while Ms. Clinton currently holds no elective office and was generally seen, particularly within the Democratic Party, as very successful in the last job she held.
  • Whatever Happened to Rand Paul?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    13 Mar 2015 | 5:08 am
    A year ago, Rand Paul was the most exciting Republican politician in the country. He was building a presidential campaign around his brand of libertarian Republican politics that, while not exactly making him a frontrunner for his party's presidential nomination in 2016, made him a credible candidate. Mr. Paul's belief that the U.S. should be less engaged in every corner of the world, coupled with his views on personal freedoms, enabled him to stand out from the rest of the Republican pack.

    Joseph A. Palermo
    8 Mar 2015 | 7:19 am
    Fifty years ago, on March 8, 1965, although few Americans could see it at the time, President Lyndon Johnson embarked on a war in Vietnam that would fundamentally transform both societies. He opened up a new phase in the U.S. military's ongoing goal of keeping afloat the Saigon government. The United States was using the airfield near Da Nang as a base of operations for the bombing of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV). The landing of 3,500 Marines (two battalions) in the port city was to protect a U.S. airbase from National Liberation Front (NLF) attack and it marked a turning point in…

    20 Jan 2015 | 3:13 pm
    Anyone who doubts Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's drive and ability to wield power unhindered by any sense of fair play in pursuit of plutocratic ends should read Allen Raymond's 2008 book titled: How To Rig An Election: Confessions of a Republican Operative. Raymond recounts his career as a political hatchet man for the GOP. And even as aggressive and merciless the young Raymond was as a Republican operative, he notes that Mitch McConnell's oily demeanor still scared the shit out of him. Raymond is a rich white Republican guy with an illustrious New England pedigree who had…

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:28 pm
    With President Barack Obama's decision to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba we might be entering a new era where the ghosts of America's past military interventions in the Caribbean and Central America finally can be placed in a more realistic perspective. Throughout the 1980s, the Reagan administration and its bipartisan allies in Congress had argued that the embargo against Cuba, like the Contra war in Nicaragua, U.S. military aid to El Salvador, and the October 1983 invasion of Grenada, were all steps in countering Soviet power in the region. The problem the United States had with…
  • 'We Tortured Some Folks,' But 'That's Not Who We Are'

    Joseph A. Palermo
    12 Dec 2014 | 2:18 pm
    Last August, President Barack Obama admitted to the press: "we tortured some folks." But he also added that torturing people "is not who we are." His CIA director, John Brennan, calls the CIA torturers "patriots." So which is it? Are they "patriots," deserving of our admiration, or sadists who engaged in acts that are contrary to "who we are?" The Senate Intelligence Committee's executive summary report on CIA torture concludes that at least 26 of the people the CIA contractors tortured were innocent of any ties to terrorism whatsoever. One of the CIA contractors, James Mitchell, was on TV…

    26 Nov 2014 | 4:01 pm
    The internal sniping and bickering has already begun among Democratic ranks but it's their own damn fault. The internal debates following the 2014 midterm elections highlight the ideological schizophrenia that continues to plague the Democratic Party. Is the Democratic Party the party of labor unions or the party of trade deals that outsource American jobs? Is it the party of the environment or a water carrier for fossil fuel corporations? Is it the party of public education or the party of busting teachers' unions and privatizing schools? Does it favor a single-payer health care system or…

  • How About a Real Debate on Trade?

    Robert L. Borosage
    5 Mar 2015 | 8:46 am
    U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) just announced that fast-track trade legislation won't be introduced until April. Thanks to the objections of U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), the effort to fast-track fast track has been put on hold. Fast track -- "Trade Promotion Authority" -- is designed to grease the skids for passage of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement that is still being negotiated behind closed doors. The postponement opens up a month to have a true national debate on our global trade tax policies. Surely one is long overdue. The Full Catastrophe The U.S. has racked up a…
  • The Case for a Populist Challenger in the Democratic Primaries

    Robert L. Borosage
    18 Feb 2015 | 9:14 am
    A raft of reasons are floated for why someone should challenge the prohibitive favorite, Hillary Clinton, in the Democratic primaries, most of them spurious. Yes, polls show Democrats want a contest, not a coronation for their presidential nomination. The press and talking heads also yearn for a contest, if only to have something to cover. But this doesn't justify a run. Contrary to many pundits, Hillary (first name used as shorthand to distinguish her from her husband) doesn't need a primary contest to get her campaign in shape. She's already been central to three presidential campaigns, as…

    21 Jan 2015 | 11:53 am
    The swagger was back. Ignoring the electoral rebuke of 2014, President Barack Obama claimed the growing economy as a mandate for his progressive agenda, delivering a State of the Union address bristling with veto threats and challenging Congress to stand with working families. The speech roused Obama's popular majority coalition that elected him twice against the Republican congressional majority, which captured far fewer votes. While ending with a long, soaring peroration about "one America" in Obama's signature voice, the speech itself threw down the gauntlet before Republicans, inviting a…

    15 Jan 2015 | 6:59 am
    Legislators in the new Congress haven't even cut the curtains for their offices, but it is already clear that the right has no clue and the "center" offers no hope. Republican Mitch McConnell, newly installed as Senate majority leader, announced that his goal is not to be "scary." House Republican leader John Boehner declared his troops had to prove Republicans can "govern." But Republicans are already tripping over those low bars. They stuffed the legislative docket with "message" bills to repeal Obamacare, rollback immigration reforms, and cripple agencies that protect the environment…

    12 Dec 2014 | 9:22 am
    The first signs of the November election returns are apparent in the $1 trillion spending bill that the House of Representatives passed last night in Washington. This spending bill was forged with resurgent Republicans on their best behavior. They are still a minority in the Senate in the lame-duck session. Their leaders exercised adult supervision over the wingnuts, rejecting calls for a government shutdown over immigration because Obama. They largely adhered to the budget deal cut last year on spending limits, and agreed to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year through…

    Die AfD zeigt Verständnis dafür, dass in der Zuwanderungsdebatte zunehmend auch schrillere Töne zu hören sind. "Die Lasten sind sehr ungleich verteilt und werden am stärksten getragen von den einfachen Leuten mit geringen Einkommen", sagte Parteichef Bernd Lucke der "DPA". Ungleiche Lastenverteilung Die Wohlhabenden könnten sich dagegen weitgehend abkoppeln von diesem Problem, fügte er hinzu. Das sei unfair. Von ärmeren Familien würden Zuwanderer eben nicht nur als Notleidende wahrgenommen, sondern auch als Konkurrenten auf dem Arbeitsmarkt und bei der Suche nach billigem Wohnraum.

Das erklärt auch die zunehmenden Trends zum Wandern und Flanieren, zum Selfmade oder zum Gärtnern. Der Dritte Ort ist ein Fachausdruck der Soziologie.

Um ihre Lohnkosten zu senken, beschäftigt die Deutsche Post etwa 14.000 befristete Zustellerinnen und Zusteller. Schon diese riesige Zahl von Beschäftigten, die in permanenter Unsicherheit leben müssen, ist ein Skandal. Man erinnere sich an die Postbotin in Wittenberge, die ab 1997…

Wie keine zweite Metropole in Deutschland lebt die Hauptstadt von der Veränderung und den dadurch entstehenden neuen Ideen. Und Berlin wird allein schon deshalb eine unfertige Stadt bleiben, weil niemand weiß, wie dieses fertige Berlin am Ende aussehen sollte.

    To me, all faiths shared similarities, and my childhood naiveté could not comprehend tension and factionalism within and between these religions. I was also incapable of understanding why my teacher went so in-depth with the Abrahamic faiths, but skipped over the eastern religions, including mine.

  • So rechtfertigt AfD-Chef Bernd Lucke Ressentiments gegen Asylbewerber

    2 Apr 2015 | 1:40 am
    Die AfD zeigt Verständnis dafür, dass in der Zuwanderungsdebatte zunehmend auch schrillere Töne zu hören sind. "Die Lasten sind sehr ungleich verteilt und werden am stärksten getragen von den einfachen Leuten mit geringen Einkommen", sagte Parteichef Bernd Lucke der "DPA". Ungleiche Lastenverteilung Die Wohlhabenden könnten sich dagegen weitgehend abkoppeln von diesem Problem, fügte er hinzu. Das sei unfair. Von ärmeren Familien würden Zuwanderer eben nicht nur als Notleidende wahrgenommen, sondern auch als Konkurrenten auf dem Arbeitsmarkt und bei der Suche nach billigem Wohnraum.

    2 Apr 2015 | 1:33 am
    Gesellschaft - Wo wir uns heute finden Dritte Orte gewinnen in einer globalisierten und vernetzten Welt immer mehr an Bedeutung, denn wir brauchen eine stabile Verankerung im persönlichen und lokalen Bereich, um uns nicht zu verlieren. Das erklärt auch die zunehmenden Trends zum Wandern und Flanieren, zum Selfmade oder zum Gärtnern. Der Dritte Ort ist ein Fachausdruck der Soziologie. Ray Oldenburg führt in „The Great Good Place" (1999) den Begriff Third Place ein, der neben dem eigenen Heim ("Erster Ort") und dem Arbeitsplatz ("Zweiter Ort") von großer Bedeutung ist für das…

Denn sie führen einen exemplarischen Kampf gegen die neuzeitliche Lohndrückerei. Worum geht es bei dem Streik? Um ihre Lohnkosten zu senken, beschäftigt die Deutsche Post etwa 14.000 befristete Zustellerinnen und Zusteller. Schon diese riesige Zahl von Beschäftigten, die in permanenter Unsicherheit leben müssen, ist ein Skandal. Man erinnere sich an die Postbotin in Wittenberge, die ab 1997…

    Dass Berlin eine Stadt ist, die „ständig im Werden“ ist, steht in jedem Reiseführer. Ein über hundert Jahre alter Slogan, der bisher kaum etwas von seiner Wahrheit eingebüßt hat. Wie keine zweite Metropole in Deutschland lebt die Hauptstadt von der Veränderung und den dadurch entstehenden neuen Ideen. Und Berlin wird allein schon deshalb eine unfertige Stadt bleiben, weil niemand weiß, wie dieses fertige Berlin am Ende aussehen sollte.
