    This week, Americans fulfilled part of our responsibility to our government by filing taxes. But the government isn't doing its part in return. First, as a new report by the National Taxpayer Advocate showed, the IRS has been crippled by years of budget cuts, resulting in a "devastating erosion of taxpayer service" and filing misery for millions. Hold times, which were under three minutes in 2004, are now over 30 minutes. This isn't smaller government; it's broken government, which, for many budget-slashing legislators, is the point.

    This week delivered a prelude to today's announcement of Hillary Clinton's campaign for president, thus beginning our long national nightmare of breathless fluctuations in swing state polls, manufactured scandals, and faux outrage over faux stories. But it doesn't have to be that way; when the media serves up an unending stream of nothing-burgers (extra Benghazi on that?), we can demand more substantive fare. Like the fact that the 2016 race could be shaping up as a referendum on another war, this one with a country twice as big as Iraq, or that this week the Senate Foreign Relations…

In answer to my questions, he shared his insights on cosmetic neurology, the potential of so-called smart drugs to harm our health and our sleep quality, and the habits that are truly good for our brains. You've talked about "cosmetic neurology" -- what is this? Cosmetic Neurology is the application of neurotechnologies (pharmacology, biologics, devices, etc.) to modify brain function in healthy people. Analogous…

    This week, the framework of a deal on curbing Iran's nuclear capabilities was announced. Existing stockpiles of enriched uranium will be reduced by 97 percent, centrifuges by two-thirds, along with what President Obama called a "robust and intrusive" inspection regime -- if adhered to, the deal would make a bomb impossible for at least 10 years. "It will make our country, our allies and our world safer," said Obama. In short, a tentative victory for all. Except, of course, those cheerleaders of the disastrous Iraq War pining to launch a sequel. Speaker Boehner vowed to ask "tough questions"…

In answer to my questions, he shared his insights on the link between breathing and sleep health, social factors that can affect children's sleep, and the importance of teaching your children healthy sleep habits. How would you describe your research on sleep and children? My research on sleep in children focuses on complications related to sleep disturbances, namely sleep disordered breathing.

  • 6 Baltimore Officers Suspended After Man Suffers Fatal Spine Injury While In Police Custody

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore's top police officials, mayor and prosecutor sought to calm a "community on edge" Monday while investigating how a man suffered a fatal spine injury while under arrest. Six officers have been suspended, but investigators say they still don't know how it happened. A week after Freddie Gray was pulled off the street and into a police van, authorities don't have any videos or other evidence explaining what happened to cause the "medical emergency" an arresting officer said Gray suffered while being taken to the local police station, Deputy Commissioner Jerry…
  • Water Pricing To Spur Conservation Ruled Unconstitutional

    20 Apr 2015 | 8:17 pm
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Orange County appeals court ruled Monday that San Juan Capistrano's tiered water rates are unconstitutional, potentially dealing a blow to agencies statewide that have used the pricing structure to encourage water conservation. The 3-0 ruling by the 4th District Court of Appeal upholds a Superior Court judge's decision that found that charging bigger water users incrementally higher rates violates a voter-approved law that prohibits government agencies from charging more than the cost of a service. The ruling comes shortly after Gov. Jerry Brown issued drought orders…

It is nearly 10 years since a Danish newspaper published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, unleashing a storm of protest by Muslims around the world, and exposing a rift in Europe between true believers in free expression and those prepared to appease religious zealots. At around that time, I came to Berlin to defend the right to offend. Sadly, that right is less secure today than it was in 2005. Think only of the massacre of the Charlie Hebdo staff in Paris on January 7, and the gruesome shootings of the people in the…

  • The Simple Progressive Economic Agenda for Hilary Clinton (or Anyone Else)

    20 Apr 2015 | 5:41 pm
    In the week since Secretary Clinton announced she is entering the presidential race, there have been numerous stories asking about the agenda that she will adopt in her campaign. In her announcement video, she indicated she wanted to be a champion for the average worker against the wealthy. While many policies will be needed to improve the situation of the poor and middle class, there are three simple ones that could make a big difference: a more competitive dollar, a Federal Reserve Board committed to full employment and a financial transactions tax to rein in Wall Street. If Clinton or any…
  • Toughening Up Hillary

    20 Apr 2015 | 5:30 pm
    I write today to challenge what is fast becoming conventional wisdom in the political world -- in particular, the notion that Hillary Clinton really needs a strong primary challenge to "toughen her up" for the upcoming race with whomever the Republicans decide upon. When you deconstruct the logic behind this idea, however, it falls apart. There are many reasons for wishing Hillary will have a competitive primary race with at least one other strong Democratic candidate. The biggest of these is the hope that someone will "challenge her from the left," and thus draw Clinton further in that…

Now we, so pathetically atwitter at this proximity to power, are crooning as though we are so relieved; she is one of us, after all, and surely we can count on her because she said all those…

    DENVER (AP) -- The University of Colorado in Boulder was open to the public on 4/20, the unofficial pot holiday, for the first time in four years on Monday. The school had blocked public access to snuff out one of the nation's largest marijuana celebrations. The crackdown eased this year, and campus remained open except for a gathering spot notorious for a huge crowd of weed smokers. University spokesman Ryan Huff said police did not issue any citations for pot use on campus. He said interest in the gathering has dwindled because there is no longer a protest element after marijuana was…

    In December of 1984, American photojournalist Steve McCurry snapped a shot that would change lives.

I first encountered this young girl's face about three or four years ago, before photography was as important to me as it is now. Yet in my awe of that face and those eyes, I ripped the page…

    When the observatory at One World Trade Center opens next month, visitors will be treated to not just a 360-degree view of the Big Apple, but also a brisk -- and breathtaking -- elevator ride down up memory lane. As The New York Times explains, the five elevators that service the observatory will feature an immersive time-lapse animation which "recreates the development of New York City’s skyline, from the 1500s to today." Per the Times: From the moment the doors close until they reopen 47 seconds later on the 102nd floor, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will unfold on…
  • Blue Bell Creameries Recalls All Products After 2 Ice Cream Samples Test Positive For Listeria

    20 Apr 2015 | 8:48 pm
    BRENHAM, Texas (AP) — Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries issued a voluntary recall Monday night for all of its products on the market after two samples of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream tested positive for listeria, a potentially deadly bacteria. The company "cannot say with certainty" how the bacteria was introduced to its facilities, Blue Bell's chief executive Paul Kruse said in a statement. Blue Bell issued the recall that includes ice cream, frozen yogurt, sherbet and frozen snacks distributed in 23 states and international locations because other products "have the potential to…
  • 7 Life Changes That Could Help Your Finances

    20 Apr 2015 | 7:28 pm
    At first, Brian Carter's move to South Carolina seemed like an extreme measure to take in order to fix his finances. After all, on the surface, he had a great life. He was living in sunny San Diego, married to his true love, and had a flexible work schedule as a freelance digital marketer. The catch, however, was that his income fluctuated -- a lot. In 2007 he hit a dry spell and wasn't generating steady revenue. His wife, Lynda, took on 50- to 60-hour weeks as an acupuncturist just to cover the day-to-day bills -- and with the weight of the household expenses on her shoulders, she was…
  • The Simple Progressive Economic Agenda for Hilary Clinton (or Anyone Else)

    20 Apr 2015 | 5:41 pm
    In the week since Secretary Clinton announced she is entering the presidential race, there have been numerous stories asking about the agenda that she will adopt in her campaign. In her announcement video, she indicated she wanted to be a champion for the average worker against the wealthy. While many policies will be needed to improve the situation of the poor and middle class, there are three simple ones that could make a big difference: a more competitive dollar, a Federal Reserve Board committed to full employment and a financial transactions tax to rein in Wall Street. If Clinton or any…
  • Patty Murray Vows To Pursue ‘Every Avenue' For Paid Sick Leave

    20 Apr 2015 | 5:08 pm
    WASHINGTON -- Last month the Senate passed a measure during the midnight hours that has one lawmaker pretty pumped up. The issue: paid sick days for all Americans. It’s something Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) feels "really strongly about.” And after 15 Republican senators voted in favor of her amendment during a budget vote-a-rama, she sees an opportunity to go all the way. Her amendment, which seeks to ensure that all workers can take up to seven sick days a year and be guaranteed pay while recovering from an illness or caring for a sick family member, passed the Senate 61-39 in late…

  • How to Break the 'Mutually Assured Misperception' Between the U.S. and China

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:56 pm
    Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has emerged as a key broker of perceptions between the U.S. and China. He was a member of the Berggruen Institute's 21st Century Council delegation that met Chinese President Xi Jinping in November 2013 in Beijing and is currently director of the Asia Society Public Policy Institute. On behalf of the Belfer Center at Harvard, he has just completed a seminal report "U.S.-China 21: The Future of U.S.-China Relations Under Xi Jinping." Below are the key conclusions of that report. The full report can be read here. 1. Sorry, but on balance, the Chinese…

    Imagine you are a young adult, in your 20s or even early 30s. You haven't been feeling well lately, shake it off and then finally decide to make an appointment with your physician. After significant checkups, conversations and tests, you get some bad news delivered to you. You have Leukemia. Imagine you are a 22 year old young woman; you've just started your first job in an investment firm on Wall Street. You go for your annual gynecological exam, your doctor feels something strange and sends you for a mammogram and ultrasound. Unfortunately, you have a breast cancer diagnosis. Imagine, your…
  • The Problem With Asking for Feedback

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:39 pm
    Everyone wants feedback, right? Wrong. Most people cringe at the thought. Although the term feedback has become mainstream in the world of corporate speak, giving and receiving it still ranks below going to the dentist for a deep filling. This is because we are wired to reject things we don't want to believe is true about ourselves, and most of us feel uncomfortable telling others information that could come across as insulting. So when someone asks you for feedback, you naturally think twice about providing him or her with the truth. Let's go back to basics. The problem inherent in asking…

  • Craft Breweries Troll Budweiser With Pumpkin Peach Beers

    20 Apr 2015 | 4:07 pm
    A group of craft brewers has discovered that revenge is both sweet and a dish best served cold. More specifically, for a nationwide group of breweries led by the acclaimed Bell's Brewery of Kalamazoo, Michigan, revenge is an icy glass of pumpkin-peach beer. The idea for the strange-sounding beer came from a controversial Budweiser ad that premiered during this year's Super Bowl, mocking the pretensions of the craft beer movement. In the ad, Budweiser branded itself as "proudly a macro beer." Near its climax, the clip's title cards took a dig at craft beer snobs: "Let them sip their pumpkin…

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd pleaded guilty Monday to charges that he threatened to murder two people and possessed methamphetamine, according to the New Zealand Herald. Earlier in December, he had pleaded not guilty to the threats charges, as well as charges that he had methamphetamine and 130 grams of marijuana on him when he was arrested. His home in Tauranga, New Zealand was raided on Nov. 6 last year after he called a man and his daughter, and threatened to kill them. Police initially accused the 60-year-old rock star of masterminding a murder plot…

    During an interview with "Good Morning America" Monday, John Travolta was asked why there is so much intrigue and interest surrounding the Church of Scientology. "Mostly because it's not understood," he responded. "People really need to take time and read a book. You know? That's my advice. You could read A New Slant on Life, you could read Dianetics. And I think if you really read it, you'll understand it, but unless you do, you'll speculate. And I think that's a mistake to do that." The actor attested that L.

    STOCKHOLM (AP) — "Mamma Mia!" may be in its final year on Broadway, but the ABBA musical is getting a rebirth of sorts — this time in a restaurant setting. Former ABBA member Bjorn Ulvaeus said Wednesday he hopes to transfer the show's dancing-in-the-aisles party atmosphere to a Greek taverna set to open in January in Stockholm. The idea is to have musicians and actors interacting with waiters and guests, who will be invited to sing and dance along to the catchy tunes of the Swedish 1970's pop group. "They will be part of a little story in real time, which will be played out during the…

  • At Tribeca: "American Renaissance" or 9 Minutes of Elizabethan Frivolity

    20 Apr 2015 | 12:52 pm
    "God save the Queen!" the masses cheered. A solid narrative short, like a short story, in most cases, should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Of course, in the proper hands, this rule is meant to be broken. As for a documentary short, information should be supplied, a world revealed, and the viewers' sense of a certain topic should be transformed or heightened. With "American Renaissance," which is screening at the current Tribeca Film Festival, youthfully bearded directors Ryan Scafuro and Jarred Alterman have forged together a look at the New York Renaissance Faire that's held in the…

    FirstGen Show is the late coming-of-age story of a first generation American woman who discovers that she wants to drop out of Harvard Medical School...to become a comedian. Her immigrant parents are less than pleased. It is the hilarious brainchild of Yvonne Orji, writer, comedienne and actress, who relocated to the United States with her family at the age of 6. She is the youngest and only daughter in a family of four children. Adjusting to life in the U.S. early on was not easy. She was a self-described "brown girl with an accent" who didn't feel like she fit in. "I was the type of kid…
  • Rihanna's New Single "American Oxygen" and What it Means for America

    20 Apr 2015 | 12:43 pm
    As a major fan to Rihanna, I have become somewhat immune to her promiscuous music videos, outfits, and lyrics. Whether she's nearly nude on the cover of her album Unapologetic, taking drugs in her We Found Love music video, or belting out to her latest risqué lyrics--I am never revolted or turned off. That is simply Rihanna. And as a fan, I am also all too aware of Rihanna's incredible chameleon qualities. One minute she is the sweet, emerging star on her first album Music of the Sun, and the next she has become the Good Girl Gone Bad. Just look at when she showed up to the 2009 Met Gala in…

    A few days ago, I asked my 4-year-old daughter, Milo, if she remembered where she had put my tablet. She didn't. I suggested to her to imagine that our brain has millions of tiny boxes, and all the memories that we create are stored in them. So, when we want to remember something, we just need to tell our brain to find the box that we need, and open it. In a minute she figured where she put the tablet and what had been lost was now found! I was impressed with my illustrative skills! While watching "Connected" episode 7, "Tearing Down Walls," I wondered, "Was it right to describe our memories…

    20 Apr 2015 | 1:25 pm
    When I began my undergraduate degree in wildlife science in the mid '90s, I was somewhat naïvely surprised by how animal welfare was not generally considered germane to discussions about conservation and sustainability. I found this disappointing, because the whole reason I pursued a wildlife science degree was that I cared about animals. However, I often got the message that in order to be a good scientist, I needed to care less. For example, as part of a lesson on "mark and recapture" (a technique for surveying wildlife populations), students were instructed to capture wild field mice, cut…

It is a rare luxury to feel that you have been part of a moment; a subtle but profound tipping point after which nothing will ever seem the same. The 1.618 Sustainable Luxury conference in Paris on April 2 was one such moment. Dedicated to the theme of Sustainable Sourcing and Responsible Value Chains, it was clear that the discussion of sustainable luxury has finally moved on from creating feel-good initiatives to recognizing the potential for creating business value.

  • Giorgio Armani Says Gay Men Shouldn't 'Dress Homosexual'

    20 Apr 2015 | 1:59 pm
    Fashion icon Giorgio Armani has come under fire after claiming in an interview that gay men "do not need to dress homosexual." The 80-year-old Italian designer told the Sunday Times magazine that gay men are men "100 percent," and then noted, "When homosexuality is exhibited to the extreme -- to say, 'Ah, you know I'm homosexual,' -- that has nothing to do with me. A man has to be a man." Armani didn't mince words when it came to women who have had plastic surgery or muscular men, regardless of their sexuality. "A small breast does not have to become bigger," he said. Later, he added, "I…
  • How Facebook Stalking Leads Women To Objectify Their Own Bodies

    20 Apr 2015 | 1:52 pm
    Facebook stalking is real, people, and it has real effects on your body image. A new study has found that Facebook usage is positively correlated with a tendency to compare appearances with peers and engage in self-objectification (viewing your body as an object to be gazed upon). Both of these outcomes can lead to body dissatisfaction and disordered eating. Researchers in Australia surveyed 150 women between the ages of 17 and 25 to determine what types of media they were consuming and which ones made them feel bad about their own bodies. Unsurprisingly, participants spent roughly 2 hours a…

  • Elevator Journey To The Top Of 1 World Trade Center Features Spectacular Time-Lapse History Of New York

    20 Apr 2015 | 11:00 pm
    When the observatory at One World Trade Center opens next month, visitors will be treated to not just a 360-degree view of the Big Apple, but also a brisk -- and breathtaking -- elevator ride down up memory lane. As The New York Times explains, the five elevators that service the observatory will feature an immersive time-lapse animation which "recreates the development of New York City’s skyline, from the 1500s to today." Per the Times: From the moment the doors close until they reopen 47 seconds later on the 102nd floor, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will unfold on…
  • Water Pricing To Spur Conservation Ruled Unconstitutional

    20 Apr 2015 | 8:17 pm
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — An Orange County appeals court ruled Monday that San Juan Capistrano's tiered water rates are unconstitutional, potentially dealing a blow to agencies statewide that have used the pricing structure to encourage water conservation. The 3-0 ruling by the 4th District Court of Appeal upholds a Superior Court judge's decision that found that charging bigger water users incrementally higher rates violates a voter-approved law that prohibits government agencies from charging more than the cost of a service. The ruling comes shortly after Gov. Jerry Brown issued drought orders…
  • NOAA Proposes Removing Most Humpback Whales From Endangered Species List

    20 Apr 2015 | 7:15 pm
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Monday proposed removing more than two-thirds of the world's humpback whales from the endangered species list after 45 years of conservation. NOAA's proposal would consider 10 of the world's 14 distinct populations of the whales "not warranted" for the endangered species list. The Cape Verde Islands/Northwest Africa and Arabian Sea populations would still be considered endangered, and the Western North Pacific and the Central America populations would remain in the category of threatened. NOAA placed humpbacks on the endangered species…
  • A Sustainable Tomorrow Begins With the Actions of Youth Today

    20 Apr 2015 | 6:40 pm
    The environment is constantly undergoing change, and the human influence on natural surroundings that is causing climate change is well-established. As a young person, I am aware that trees are being cut to provide wood to build luxurious houses that would mostly remain empty, or that oil is being spilt by massive vessels polluting oceans and wiping out marine habitats. But these instances only affect me indirectly, albeit constantly griping at my consciousness that the environment is crying out for help for the damage that is being caused to it by humans and I need to tell people about the…

  • Pipe Dreams: Spinning Water Into Watts

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:58 pm
    By Don WilllmottWhen it comes to pushing lots of water through lots of pipes over long distances, nothing works better than old-fashioned gravity, something the Romans figured out and carved into stone more than 2,000 years ago. Might there be a way to tap into those rushing underground rivers and generate some sustainable hydroelectric power without slowing down the streams? To find out, you have to go beneath the streets of Portland, Oregon, where an innovative startup is adding turbine-equipped pipes to the city's water system and providing power to Portland General Electric.Lucid Energy's…

    On March 5th, a thousand angry women descended on a facility in Brazil where the biotechnology company, FuturaGene, was growing genetically engineered eucalyptus trees. Later that day, a meeting of the Brazilian Biosafety Commission (CTNBio) was scheduled to announce their decision about whether or not to allow commercial release of the GE eucalyptus. The women, members of the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement, or MST, and several other social movements in Brazil were angry. They broke into the facility and ripped up tree seedlings. They made clear their determination to prevent the release…
  • Poll Shows We Need to Come Out on Climate Change

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:09 pm
    A new poll released this week by the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication reveals that Americans rarely--very rarely--hear people they know talk about climate change and surprisingly few hear about it on a weekly basis in the news media. Anthony Leiserowitz, Ph.D., Director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, writes: "Our survey finds, for example, that only 40% of the American public says they hear about global warming in the media at least once a month and only 19% hear about it at least once a week. Further, only 16% say that they hear people they know talk about…

    20 Apr 2015 | 5:32 pm
    Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) couldn't hold back tears during a Senate speech Monday commemorating the five-year anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon explosion that took 11 lives. "These were just people we grew up with," Cassidy said on the Senate floor before reading the names and stories of the men who were killed. "So I apologize for being emotional, but these are our neighbors." The BP blowout is thought to have caused the worst marine oil spill in U.S. history, and conservationists have pointed to it as evidence of the high risks associated with the petroleum industry.

  • Stunning Photos Reveal Centuries-Old Shipwrecks In Lake Michigan

    20 Apr 2015 | 4:22 pm
    Much to the delight of photographers, last winter was particularly frigid for Lake Michigan. Subzero temperatures caused "once in a lifetime" ice caves and gargantuan ice boulders on and around its shores, providing inspiration for magical images like this: And this: Now, the ice has melted away, revealing a brand-new photographic marvel. Last week, the water was so clear and so blue that the Coast Guard captured aerial photographs of shipwrecks along the Sleeping Bear Lakes National Seashore -- vessels that sank to the bottom of the lake centuries ago. The wrecks, which become visible every…

  • These 3 Lawsuits Are Taking the Chicago Police Department To Task For Brutality

    20 Apr 2015 | 2:58 pm
    In the first trial of a Chicago police officer for a shooting death in 17 years, a judge on Monday cleared Chicago Police Detective Dante Servin of all charges related to his killing of a 22-year-old unarmed black woman, Rekia Boyd. Servin's team did not even have to mount a defense in the trial for the off-duty 2012 shooting. The case is one of three major police misconduct-related issues Chicago faces amid a growing national debate over police brutality, particularly in minority communities. In October of last year, a youth activist group presented a report to the United Nations alleging…

    CHICAGO -- A Chicago Police Department detective was cleared Monday of all charges in the fatal 2012 off-duty shooting of Rekia Boyd, a 22-year-old unarmed black woman. Judge Dennis Porter found Dante Servin not guilty of involuntary manslaughter and other lesser charges, concluding prosecutors failed to prove Servin acted recklessly, the Chicago Tribune reports. Servin's case marked the first time in more than 17 years that a Chicago police officer faced a trial over a shooting. Monday's verdict was considered "unusual" as Servin was found not guilty without even having to mount a defense,…

Walter Scott's death represents a systemic issue with the police training and screening process. Walter Scott should not have been shot and killed. Will this be a landmark case for the country, or will the police officer walk free after more is revealed about…

No breakfast, because I don't want my stomach churning food before I preach. I review my notes, although I preach without notes or a manuscript. I mumble and rehearse a few key phrases. I highlight the transitional moves. Then I put my notes away and never look at them again. Perhaps I will take a bicycle ride along the canal, or go on a run. The sermon whirs through my head. But what if it's Sunday morning and you're in the People's Republic of China? That's…

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd pleaded guilty Monday to charges that he threatened to murder two people and possessed methamphetamine, according to the New Zealand Herald. Earlier in December, he had pleaded not guilty to the threats charges, as well as charges that he had methamphetamine and 130 grams of marijuana on him when he was arrested. His home in Tauranga, New Zealand was raided on Nov. 6 last year after he called a man and his daughter, and threatened to kill them. Police initially accused the 60-year-old rock star of masterminding a murder plot…

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un "climbed the top" of the nation's highest mountain on Saturday, state news agency KCNA reported. Based on photographs showing him attired in a long topcoat and shiny shoes, and recent health problems, it's unlikely Kim hiked up the nearly 9,000-foot Mount Paektu, both The Guardian and the Telegraph noted. He more likely was dropped off at the summit, where he was joined by a crowd of North Korean fighter pilots. Kim reportedly made the trip to the "sacred mountain of revolution associated with the soul of the Korean nation" to commemorate the 23rd anniversary…

Polls show her doing remarkably well against anyone already mentioned, including Jeb Bush. Another thing we know is that it won't be Joe Biden. While it's possible he'd accept a position in Hillary's cabinet (Secretary of State or Defense) he's already done his time. Although the job has been depicted, historically, as thankless and…

The idea for the strange-sounding beer came from a controversial Budweiser ad that premiered during this year's Super Bowl, mocking the pretensions of the craft beer movement. In the ad, Budweiser branded itself as "proudly a macro beer." Near its climax, the clip's title cards took a dig at craft beer snobs: "Let them sip their pumpkin…

  • 15 Activities That All Procrastinators Can Understand Doing

    20 Apr 2015 | 5:01 pm
    There's nothing worse than having copious amounts of deadlines and assignments that need to get done, than having zero motivation to do them. Everyone has procrastinated in their life, and for those who say they haven't: I applaud. But the majority of us have all found something that seemed more important to do than the actual task that we had at hand. Most of us can regrettably admit that we've done at least one of the things listed below while procrastinating. 1. Binge-watching an entire series on Netflix. This is the biggest culprit of procrastination. But let's be real, the feature that…
  • 5 Possible Choices for Hillary's Running Mate

    20 Apr 2015 | 4:24 pm
    One thing we know for certain is that it won't be a quasi-Republican, weak-kneed, moderate Democrat. Unless Mitt Romney comes riding in on a white horse at the last minute, and becomes a formidable opponent, she won't need to kiss up to moderate Republicans. Polls show her doing remarkably well against anyone already mentioned, including Jeb Bush. Another thing we know is that it won't be Joe Biden. While it's possible he'd accept a position in Hillary's cabinet (Secretary of State or Defense) he's already done his time. Although the job has been depicted, historically, as thankless and…
  • I Ate a Space Cake in Amsterdam and It Was Terrible

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:05 pm
    I was studying abroad in Paris my junior year of college when my friends and I decided to take a weekend getaway to Amsterdam. This involved getting on an overnight bus from Paris to Amsterdam and staying at a place called the Botel, a boat converted into a hotel and permanently docked in one of the canals. Rushing to catch the bus and starving, I decided to stop at a vending machine and grab not one but two brie sandwiches, (yes these things were actually sold in French vending machines). I scarfed them down on the way and made it to the bus just in the nick of time. After we exhausted…
  • Doug's Dozen: 12 Excuses for the Dear Departed Elephant Hunter

    20 Apr 2015 | 12:38 pm
    The whole world was saddened to hear of the loss of elephant hunter Ian Gibson, who was trampled to death in Zimbabwe by the bull elephant he was attempting to shoot for its ivory. "Why couldn't this have happened years ago?" was a typical, tearful response. But every story has two sides, so here is... Doug's Dozen: 12 Excuses for the Dear Departed Elephant Hunter 1. The man suffered from a crushing depression. 2. Some people just crack under pressure. 3. He was like a character in a pulp novel. 4. He was relying on assurances that a MASH unit was nearby. 5. He needed ivory fast: It was…

Being able to perceive the very thing that is doing your perceiving is an experience no one should miss. I'd been addicted to pornography and I'd embarked upon the craniectomy in the hope of getting involved in a loving and committed relationship.

  • Nick Kroll Says The Last Season Of 'Kroll Show' Wasn't Premeditated, But It Felt Like 'A Natural Conclusion'

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:02 pm
    Nick Kroll didn't intend for this past season of "Kroll Show" to be the last, but the actor still feels that his eponymous series ended at just the right time. "It was a very organic process to reach where the show culminated," he told HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri. "So it just felt like, let's end where it feels like a natural conclusion, even though when we were shooting it, we didn't know it was necessarily the end." By ending on a strong note, Kroll sees a possibility for the esoteric personalities featured on his reality TV satire to have an afterlife. "The beauty of it is like, if you…

    Well, as every high school student (no pun intended, we swear) has probably reminded you, today is April 20, or "FOUR-TWENTY!!" But, as we all grow up and mature as a nation, the unofficial marijuana holiday largely loses its luster of "craziness," if it ever truly had that to begin with.

  • The 10 Most Surprising Things About Foster Care

    Dawn Teo
    15 Apr 2015 | 12:40 pm
    1. Foster care is all around us. I saw a tweet once from a radio personality that asked, "When I go to a foster parent training, why am I the only one who doesn't look like he's going to a monster truck rally?" When my husband and I got licensed for foster care so that we could adopt a child who was waiting for a family, we thought we would be alone on this journey within our social circles. After all, foster parents have a certain reputation. Now, I realize it's not a reputation as much as it's a stereotype. Trust me when I tell you that there are foster families all around you. Foster…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    About two years ago, I approached my father (Deepak Chopra) with a confession. I told him I was generally exhausted, over-caffeinated and my sugar addiction was out of control. I realized I was over-scheduled trying to balance my role as a wife, mom, and entrepreneur with Intent.com, my start-up social media company. I felt bloated and had a lot of body pain. I hadn't been meditating or exercising much, and at night I was having trouble sleeping. My father looked shell-shocked, and it took a few moments for him to transition from concerned father to Deepak Chopra, the person that thousands go…

    By Mallika Chopra My daughter recently told me about an incident with some of her friends. A group of them were together singing, dancing and having fun. One friend, a free-spirited, earnest girl, was enthusiastically participating, feeling secure in the trusted circle. My daughter heard another friend, who had a cell phone with her, laugh and say, "Let's record her," without the other girl's knowledge. My daughter said no, feeling intuitively that it would be inappropriate. This incident brought up several issues for me. 1. All the girls involved in this scenario are really nice, kind, good…
  • Where Is Your Favorite Place to Meditate?

    In nature? In a sacred place? In the comfort of your home? How about sitting on a platform held up by a stick held by another meditating man? I'm not kidding -- just witnessed this this past weekend at Piazza Navona in Rome. While we gawked at the stunt, I have to admit these two men meditated in silence and stillness for more than an hour... I myself have meditated in the middle of the city when Intent coordinated a flash mob meditation in Union Square, San Francisco. It was amazing to personally experience silence in the midst of chaos. I have to admit I am not a nature meditator, unless…

Would you travel the world and see those places on your dream list? Moms: Would you hire a good nanny and a housekeeper and treat yourself to spa days and getaway weekends with girlfriends?

    Hmm... I just read this op-ed on CNN by Mike Milhaven titled "How Do I Tell My Kids About 9/11?" Quite frankly, I was shocked that his kids are 9 years old, and neither he nor his wife have talked to them about that day! My daughter Tara is 9 years old. I was 5 months pregnant on 9/11. My dad, my mom and my brother were on planes when all the news hit. I will never forget my father, hysterical on the phone, while my aunt and I tried to track down my brother. Our family was spared. So many were not. That experience shaped so many of us and our sense of security. It shaped the world my…

    Danielle and Alexander Meitiv, the notorious "free range" parents, need to stop battling Child Protective Services and the "parenting police state" for now and start supervising their two young children so they don't lose them. When Danielle and Alexander Meitiv's two children, Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6, were picked up by police for the second time walking home alone from a park, then turned over to Child Protective Services, the Maryland couple should have vowed that this would never happen again.

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,…

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.

    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.

  • Ted Cruz Is Trying and Failing to Weasel Out of His Obamacare Duplicity

    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,…

    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…

    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.

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…

  • Would Clinton-Warren Be A Winning Ticket?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Apr 2015 | 10:11 am
    With the Democratic primary unlikely to be competitive, attention will soon turn to Hillary Clinton's choice of a running mate. At first glance, it would seem that she would benefit from a running mate that is at least a decade younger than her, probably male and perhaps Latino. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro would fit that description nicely. Senators Michael Bennet of Colorado and Tim Kaine of Virginia, while not Hispanic, would serve as qualified veeps. More.

    In one of the more surreal emails of the still-young 2016 presidential campaign, John Podesta, Bill Clinton's former chief of staff, sent a note to Democratic supporters and the media yesterday afternoon that included the line "I wanted to make sure you heard it first from me -- it's official: Hillary's running for president." By Sunday afternoon, actually by Sunday afternoon a year ago, more or less everybody knew Ms. Clinton was running for president, so anybody who heard that for the first time yesterday from John Podesta could not have been paying too much attention.

    One of the most intriguing potential Republican presidential candidates for 2016 is former CEO of Hewlett-Packard Carly Fiorina. The logic of Ms. Fiorina's candidacy is reasonably straightforward. As the only woman in a crowded field of men, and the only candidate with extensive private-sector experience, Ms. Fiorina, who ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in California, can easily stand out from the rest of the field. Additionally, as a woman, and as somebody whose national profile is not centered around far-right opinions on social issues, Ms. Fiorina could be well-positioned to challenge…

    Judith Miller recently popped out of the Fox News bubble for a quick jaunt to the Wall Street Journal editorial page, the home base for John Bolton, Max Boot, and other neo-con hawks, to give her forthcoming book a little free advertising. In the process she attempts to whitewash her role as an influential pro-war voice in the lead-up to the Iraq War. Her April 3, 2015 statement predictably follows the same party line as Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Tony Blair, and George W. Bush. She strongly defends herself against those who claim her reportage in the run-up to the war consciously fanned…

    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…

    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…

    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.

    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.

Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion." --Hillary Clinton (emphasis added) With a rhetorical bow to Elizabeth Warren, Hillary launched her presidential campaign yesterday in a terrific 2-minute-and-18-second video while heading to Iowa for a series of "intimate" meetings with voters.

    Next week as Congress returns, House Republicans will address what they consider one of the nation's most pressing problems: relieving the tax burdens on multimillionaires -- not the 1 percent but the wealthiest 0.2 percent, two of 1000 -- by eliminating the estate tax. Its repeal will cost $269 billion over 10 years, but Republicans find the cause so compelling that they would add that sum to our deficits rather than struggle with "paying" for it. The bill, of course, has no chance of becoming law. If necessary, the president will veto it. It is a message bill. Conservatives love to rail…

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

She's already been central to three presidential campaigns, as…
  • Obama Gets His Groove Back

    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…

  • Le probable dernier procès d'un ancien nazi, le "comptable d'Auschwitz" Oskar Gröning, s'ouvre aujourd'hui en Allemagne

    20 Apr 2015 | 11:11 pm
    JUSTICE - Soixante-dix ans après la libération des camps de concentration, le procès de l'ancien comptable d'Auschwitz s'ouvre mardi à Lunebourg, dans le nord de l'Allemagne, et pourrait être le dernier d'un ancien nazi. Devant l'affluence médiatique et le nombre de parties civiles – 67 rescapés et descendants de victimes défendus par 14 avocats –, l'audience se tiendra dans un bâtiment loué pour l'occasion, et se poursuivra au moins jusqu'au 29 juillet. Oskar Gröning, veuf de 93 ans qui se déplace avec difficulté, comparaît à partir de 09H30 pour "complicité de 300.000…

    ÇA MARCHE - 150 millions de personnes dans le monde partagent le même sort. Leur vue est trop faible pour pouvoir mener une vie normale. Mais elles ne peuvent pas s'offrir de lunettes. Ces personnes ne peuvent pas aller à l'école, apprendre à lire et à écrire, elles ne pourront pas travailler correctement ni s'occuper de leur famille. Leur existence dépend de ce handicap pourtant si facile à corriger. Selon l'OMS, cela entraîne une perte de revenus d'environ 120 milliards de dollars par an. C'est à peu près l'équivalent de la somme investie chaque année dans l'aide au…

Mardi 21 avril, le premier bilan annoncé est encore plus lourd: "On peut dire que 800 personnes sont mortes", a déclaré Carlotta Sami, porte-parole du Haut commissariat des Nations unies aux réfugiés (HCR) en Italie, avant que le porte-parole de l'Organisation internationale pour les migrations (OIM), Flavio Di Giacomo, ne vienne confirmer cette estimation.

    20 Apr 2015 | 11:16 pm

Tal vez por eso nunca me ha gustado hablar de dinero. Como tema de conversación, me parece, como mínimo, indelicado, hortera. En las navidades de 1992, viajé por primera vez a Estados Unidos, a Los Ángeles. Nada más llegar, en una fiesta, el primer norteamericano al que me presentaron, me preguntó esto:…

    We are the richest country humanity has ever seen, and we are at our richest moment. Yet hardworking Americans keep coming home to "a plate full of worry." This is largely because over the last few decades the wages of the bottom 80 percent of Americans have fallen or stagnated while the super-rich rake in all the profits. We can do better, and we must.

    William S. Becker
    19 Apr 2015 | 3:57 am
    Congress should amend the President's free tuition idea to create the civilian equivalent of a GI Bill for young adults who engage in 1-3 years of national service. That single change would turn the President's proposal from a college giveaway to an opportunity that serves both the individual and the country.

    President Obama has nearly two years to make the rapprochements with Iran and Cuba irreversible. If he can do that, and bring about a ceasefire in Syria to boot, then his diplomatic legacy will be secure -- no matter what his successor does to reassert the worst kind of dumb power.

    The recent changes in U.S. policy toward Cuba have produced plenty of U.S. media coverage examining the things Cuba is lacking: freedom of the press, new paint on buildings, leaders less than 80 years old.

    The main hurdle to restoring full diplomatic relations in Cuba centers on how much freedom U.S. diplomats will have to travel around Cuba and what the U.S. embassy will be allowed to bring into the country. While these may seem like mundane issues of every-day operations that should be easy to settle, they are not. Read more: Cuba, U.S.-Cuban Relations, u.s.

  • John Feffer: Working With the Marginalized in Poland

    John Feffer
    18 Apr 2015 | 1:47 am
    Until the 1970s, drug addicts didn't exist in Poland -- at least not officially. In those days, drugs were expensive and the supply was limited, so the Polish state could hide the problem by giving a different label to the small number of addicts. But then heroin became more readily available. And addiction started to grow. Read more: Poland, Drug Addiction, HIV/AIDS, Eastern Europe, Europe, European Union, Homelessness, World News, World News
