  • Afghanistan Investigates Claims Taliban Chief Mullah Omar Is Dead

    The Huffington Post | The Full Feed
    29 Jul 2015 | 4:01 am
    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- An Afghan official said Wednesday his government is examining claims that reclusive Taliban leader Mullah Omar is dead. The Taliban could not be immediately reached on the government's comments about Omar, who has been declared dead many times before. Omar, the one-eyed, secretive head of the Taliban and an al-Qaida ally, led a bloody insurgency against U.S.-led forces after they toppled him from his rule in Afghanistan in 2001. Zafar Hashemi, a deputy spokesman for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, made the announcement at a hastily called news conference Wednesday in…
  • Chattanooga Shooter Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez's DUI Arrest Video Released

    Politics - The Huffington Post
    29 Jul 2015 | 1:45 am
      Police in Chattanooga have released an edited video showing the April DUI arrest of Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, who just three months later would kill five U.S. servicemen in an attack on a recruiting station and a Navy and Marine Reserve center in the city.  The footage, at least as edited, shows a largely civil encounter between Abdulazeez and two police officers after 2 a.m. on April 20.  One of the officers said Abdulazeez had been weaving, and conducts a field sobriety test.  The 24-year-old takes off his sandals and has trouble walking in a straight…

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:24 pm
    Turkish policies towards the Middle East have been in wild oscillation over the past many weeks, even months. Ankara has now finally and begrudgingly initiated military action against ISIS in cooperation with the U.S. But it has also initiated air attacks against its former Kurdish negotiating partners. Just what is going on? There may not be any coherent strategy, but the following seem to me to represent the key issues driving policy. At the top of the list is President Erdoğan and his quest for political survival. After the rebuff to the ruling AKP Party in the June elections that caused…

  • How To Wear Fall's Newest Fashions While Summer's Still In Swing

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    While we have all spent the past few weeks rejoicing over all the summer sales, it's easy to forget why stores are getting rid of their warm-weather merchandise -- to make way for fall fashion.  Yes, turtleneck season is coming and many stores have already started putting out their fall wares. Instead of waiting until September to start your shopping (when they will probably be sold out of your size), why not get a head start now? There are tons of items on the market that you can buy now, wear for the rest of the summer and well into the cooler temps. Behold, the fall items we're…
  • If You Sit All Day, Try This Yoga Pose To Get Out All Those Kinks

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    As yoga instructor Jules Mitchell explains in the video above, restorative fish pose is basically the opposite position of the one your body's stuck in all day. Between sitting at your desk and flopping upright on your couch to watch TV, you're in a near-constant hunched-over state. Excessive sitting has been shown to deteriorate muscles and make it harder to lose weight, so physical activity like walking, running and yoga is a smart way to combat the havoc it wreaks. Follow along as Mitchell demonstrates the proper way to unwind in this restful pose. To do it yourself, you'll need…
  • A Definitive Ranking Of The Best And Worst Cheese Puffs

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    Is there any snack food in the world better than cheese puffs? Sorry, that was a rhetorical question, because the answer is hell no. Cheese snacks are the ultimate snack, period, end of story, full stop. But while we love a good cheesy nosh, we aren't fools -- we know that cheese puffs aren't all created equal.   So, to settle the great debate once and for all, we embarked on a very scientific journey to discover which cheese puff reigns supreme. To be clear about our process, we simply ranked cheese puffs based on our own personal preferences. So feel free to disagree, but you'll be…
  • We Tracked Down 17 Of The Most Lust-Worthy Lipstick Shades

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    Lipstick is arguably the most beloved item in our beauty arsenal. Few things have the power to completely transform our look in two seconds flat. Plus, there's no denying the importance of a product that was once supposedly worn by George Washington, and also used to indicate whether or not a woman was a prostitute.  These days, the biggest problem we have with lipstick is figuring out which color to wear or how to stop buying so many tubes (answer to the latter: it's impossible). Thankfully, there's an endless feed of lipstick inspiration at our fingertips: Instagram. …

  • Donald Trump Would Love 'Special Person' Sarah Palin On His Team

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:40 pm
      Donald Trump would "love" to have former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin working in his administration if he's elected president. "I'd love that because she really is somebody that knows what's happening and she's a special person," the Republican candidate said on "The Palin Update," an online interview show. "She's really a special person and I think people know that." Trump didn't say whether he would consider Palin for a Cabinet-level post or some other role, but told host Kevin Scholla that she has "a following that's unbelievable." Palin's fans, he added, are always urging…
  • Patty Murray: There Are 'Some Basic Human Rights Abuses' On College Campuses In Rape Cases

    28 Jul 2015 | 7:55 pm
    Some college administrators are complaining they already have enough regulations about responding to sexual assault, but lawmakers like Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) have no intention of abandoning plans for new federal rules on the issue. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension committee will hold its first hearing Wednesday on the Campus Accountability and Security Act, a bipartisan bill addressing college sexual assault. The bill would designate new guidelines about whom a rape victim could speak to confidentially; require additional disclosure of how sexual misconduct is…
  • Senate GOP Fast-Tracks Bill To Defund Planned Parenthood

    28 Jul 2015 | 7:09 pm
    WASHINGTON -- After a group of GOP senators huddled Tuesday afternoon to discuss the recently released undercover "sting" videos of Planned Parenthood, Republicans unveiled legislation to strip the family planning provider of its federal funding. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) fast-tracked the legislation Tuesday night using Rule 14 of Senate procedure, setting up a procedural cloture vote to move the bill to the floor as early as Monday. That all but assures the bill will get a final vote before Senators depart for August recess. McConnell huddled with Sens. Joni Ernst…

    WASHINGTON -- After the Republican Party took a drubbing at the polls on Election Day 2012, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus ordered an autopsy. The party, the coroner's report found a few months later, had alienated women and minorities and came off as plutocratic.  But with another presidential election now quickly approaching, the zombie appears to be rising from the table, as the party’s discourse has not exactly been focused on the priorities that the 2013 report identified.  Over the past few weeks, the GOP presidential campaign has been fixated on comments Donald Trump…

  • Eleanor Smith Inclusive Home Design Act Will Make Homes Accessible

    28 Jul 2015 | 3:53 pm
    Today, I introduced the Eleanor Smith Inclusive Home Design Act, which would require new homes built with federal dollars to meet accessibility standards -- including a zero-step entrance, wheelchair accessible doorways and bathrooms, and climate controls that are at a height reachable from a wheelchair. Above, I announced the introduction of this legislation to advocates at a Rally with the National Council on Independent Living. They support the legislation. For too long, the federal government has supported the development of housing that is not visitable or livable for those with mobility…
  • Fed Angst and the Interest Rate Tragedy

    28 Jul 2015 | 2:37 pm
    As traders and investors around the world try to decipher the Federal Reserve's use of such terms as "not impatient" in lieu of "patient" in its guidance on interest rates, it is fast becoming clear that the Fed realizes that it has been painted into a corner between "stimulating" the economy and returning it to a course of 'normalcy' -- precisely the kind of tight corner that naturally creates economic angst. But what is a normal return on, say, benchmark three-month U.S. Treasuries? Consider that in August, 1981, the yield on such treasuries was well over fifteen percent, meaning that the…
  • The Perversion of the American Presidency

    28 Jul 2015 | 2:20 pm
    Children long have been taught by their parents that anyone in America can grow up to be president. Today that message needs to be revised: anyone can grow up to be president if they are willing to circumvent and break the nation's anti-corruption campaign finance laws, and are willing to genuflect before the nation's wealthiest individuals. That is the reality playing out in the 2016 presidential election. This coming weekend, for example, four leading Republican presidential candidates, according to POLITICO, have been summoned to make their case for financial support from the Koch brothers…
  • The Weekly Shooting Cycle

    28 Jul 2015 | 2:19 pm
    One more terrifying, insane, heart-stopping shooting spree. How many is it now? I've lost count. I will never again speak the words "gun violence." You know why? Because "gun violence" is a euphemism. It's hollow. It doesn't describe what's actually happening (like "collateral damage," a euphemism for the murder of innocent women and children). I'm going to start calling it what it really is: domestic terrorism. Media pundits like to talk about something called the weekly news cycle: a few boring days of news followed by a day or two of big news. We Americans have something just like it: our…

The article describes how the hike to $15 is being pushed hard by Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), even as many prominent party leaders, fearful of the warnings from some economists that such an increase would have an adverse effect on unemployment, are pushing for a more modest boost. Hence, the division. One of those voices, stoking those fears of unemployment, is presented in the piece…

    Hulk Hogan came under fire recently after tapes of him making racist remarks were leaked, doing little to bolster his reputation amid his legal battle with Gawker.com, whom he's currently suing for hosting his sex tape. A.J. Daulerio, the Gawker editor who published the tape (which has since been taken down), told HuffPost Live on Tuesday that the site was in the right to broadcast the wrestlers's sexual exploits. "We presented it in a way that ultimately, we thought, was basically telling that story. That was a news story, at the time," Daulerio told host Marc Lamont Hill about the…

  • Television 2.0: Getting the Right Audience to the Right Advertiser at the Right Time

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:50 pm
    Television may have both the scale and the power to dominate advertising spending, but getting the right audience to the right advertiser at the right time has never been television's strong suit. Although it's cost effective and reaches a large, sometimes very large, audience, television advertising has always been seen as a fairly blunt instrument by marketers. The television advertising ecosystem has never really been about finesse -- and for 50 years that's been okay. Until now. At the Upfronts (the week of madness in May where the broadcasters gather in New York to lay out all their…

    By Sylvia Warren and Katherine Warren Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift received abundant attention last week over a series of tweets about the Video Music Awards (VMA) nominations. On Tuesday, Minaj tweeted about not receiving a VMA nomination for Video of the Year and said, "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year." Swift felt this message was directed at her, and responded: "I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot." Minaj clarified that she was not…

In 2013, in the Shelby vs. Holder case, the United States Supreme Court gutted some of the most important provisions of the 1963 Voting Rights Act, originally meant to extend the right to vote to all citizens. In response, several Southern states have enacted measures meant to…

The New York Times, by way of comparison, sells 639,000 copies a day - in a country of 320 million. The British love their newspapers. On top of the 10 national titles, there are an astonishing 68 regional dailies that sell another 2m copies, and then there are 9 Scottish papers, 6 Welsh and 3 Northern Irish.

  • Reading the Pictures: How to Understand the Newly Released 9/11 Photo of Dick Cheney with his Foot Up

    28 Jul 2015 | 12:23 am
    It's thoroughly obvious why this photo of Dick Cheney went absolutely viral the other day. For the left-leaning, it presents the ultimate opportunity to hate on Darth Vadar for being so callous. And for the right, the nonchalance is cowboy fuel for biding one's time before retaliating with vengeance. I would argue, however, that anyone reading a smug indifference above, even if that's characteristic of Cheney most of the time, would understand at some level that it's misattributed here. At the same time, however, the way particular attitudes go along with certain body language, the shot can't…

    28 Jul 2015 | 6:41 pm
    Co-authored by Lindsey Groepper, President, BLASTmedia A fight is brewing in the world of marketing when it comes to brand budget dollars; how do you choose between native advertising and content marketing? It's not an easy question to answer, brands must wade through a plethora of information to decide what is best for them. With spending on native ads predicted to reach $7.9 billion in 2015 and grow to $21 billion in 2018, it appears brands are growing warmer to sponsored content. To help cut through the clutter and achieve the best results while still running lean and mean, we've put…

    "Kite surfing Oahu" by Eric Guinther -- Own work. Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons Several years ago I was on holiday in Egypt. My best friend and I were in Club Med, El Gouna, far away from our stressful jobs in finance. We were having a whale of a time with nine days of sports, fabulous sunshine and lots of delicious food! We both windsurf and thought we'd give kitesurfing a go. It looked like lots of fun, and we were drawn to the multi-colored kites bobbing over the sea, pulling the surfers across the waves. Every morning, our instructor Osama would pack us, the kites and…

    Over at The Hill, Mike Lillis has the story on how the proposed $15 minimum wage is dividing Democrats, in a piece auspiciously titled, "$15 minimum wage divides Democrats." The article describes how the hike to $15 is being pushed hard by Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), even as many prominent party leaders, fearful of the warnings from some economists that such an increase would have an adverse effect on unemployment, are pushing for a more modest boost. Hence, the division. One of those voices, stoking those fears of unemployment, is presented in the piece…

  • Redefining Big Data

    28 Jul 2015 | 3:41 pm
    If we're going to nominate a buzzword for 2015, big data is already a major contender for the title. It seems to be all the rage these days -- the promises are huge -- yet very few businesses are leveraging big data well. The challenge that most business leaders face with big data isn't the numbers or even the analysis -- at its core, the math is really not that complicated -- the failure exists in the underlying approach to big data. Perhaps the main reason "big data" has gotten so misconstrued is because of semantics. When we think about big data, we think numbers, not words. We build data…

    What entrepreneur hasn't launched their enterprise with enthusiasm and optimism for the future? Little did you suspect you would one day awake with a groan. After hitting the snooze alarm for the third time, you blubber "I don't want to go to work today." You sound like a snotty-nosed first-grader dreading school. What makes this situation hairy? You own the small business you dread working at. Yikes! What happened? How did you go from slaying giants to pondering a gig at Starbucks?

    28 Jul 2015 | 3:52 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The pilot of a Virgin Galactic spaceship that disintegrated midflight recalls trying in vain to activate oxygen to help him breathe as he fell toward the California desert. Federal accident investigators on Tuesday released a summary of their interview with Peter Siebold, who survived when SpaceShipTwo ripped to pieces during an October test mission. The mission was part of nascent efforts to create a space tourism industry. Siebold says he recalls the violent breakup of the craft before he blacked out. When he awoke, he tried to get his emergency oxygen flowing. He next…

In Twitter's first quarterly earnings call since Dorsey replaced Dick Costolo as CEO this month, Dorsey regurgitated prepared remarks when asked about the search for a permanent chief executive. "The search committee does feel the urgency of the search," Dorsey said, appearing for the first time during an earnings call on Periscope, Twitter's live-streaming app.  Asked by an analyst about his future role, Dorsey said he remained…

    Oregon adults will be able to legally purchase recreational marijuana beginning Oct. 1, about a year earlier than had been expected.   Gov. Kate Brown (D) signed a law on Tuesday allowing the sale of recreational marijuana in existing medical marijuana dispensaries, starting just three months after Oregon's reformed marijuana law went into effect. The measure "is a smart solution to a short-term logistical problem," Kristen Grainger, Brown's spokeswoman, told The Huffington Post. "Oregon’s new recreational marijuana law went into effect in July 2015, but Oregonians…

      Donald Trump would "love" to have former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin working in his administration if he's elected president. "I'd love that because she really is somebody that knows what's happening and she's a special person," the Republican candidate said on "The Palin Update," an online interview show. "She's really a special person and I think people know that." Trump didn't say whether he would consider Palin for a Cabinet-level post or some other role, but told host Kevin Scholla that she has "a following that's unbelievable." Palin's fans, he added, are always urging…

  • If We Love Politicians Who Speak Their Mind, How Come We Don't Elect Them?

    28 Jul 2015 | 2:18 pm
    Donald Trump is sucking up every molecule of Oxygen this side of Jupiter in the GOP primary by speaking his mind. Love him or hate him, he is unabashedly saying what he thinks. Ted Cruz is his closest rival in that regard, calling his own party's majority leader out on the Senate floor. And Barack Obama's rising approval ratings are in part because he is saying what he thinks, to reporters and to the public. It seems that we love politicians who speak from the heart, unabated by the spin masters and thought police who massage every statement into something just innocuous and fungible enough…

    From 1993 to 2013, if you happened to wander down to the right nook of LA's Silverlake neighborhood, you'd find a portal to another realm. Strange costumes, cutting-edge music, ground-breaking drag queens and a crowd of weirdos, party animals and freaks transformed the night into a party like no other. It was a monthly extravaganza called Dragstrip 66, and although it's vanished into the mists of time, a new documentary project seeks to exhume its memories for a new generation. The party was created by Mr. Dan (aka hostess Gina Lotriman) and DJ Paul V. (creator of the Born this Way blog) back…

It started in Miami; Sam played to a sold out crowd at the American Airlines Arena and although I didn't attend the event, I followed along with Sam's Twitter and Instagram. Not only his either, but the social media accounts of some of his loyal followers too. See, Sam Smith has the…

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:55 pm
    Holy Adios Amigo & An-Ego, Batman, the Mayor of Gotham City has finally cut ties with their newest nemeses-- no, it's not "The Penguin." This is a bird of a different feather who has become known as "The Donald," an angry orange-faced fowl with a hideous hair-do (or hair-don't?). "The Donald" is an odd hybrid bird with a large bill and big mouth who, instead of quacking, prefers to tweet, squawk, screech, shriek, and squeal. He doesn't waddle, but rather struts like a bantam rooster, acts like a cuckoo, and exhibits vulture-like tendencies. He thinks of himself as the goose who laid the…

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:41 pm
    I must confess that I was a "Celebrity Apprentice" fan but now I feel guilty about it. It seems to me that the reality show headmaster with his famous phrase "you're fired", Donald J. Trump always kept around the agitators, the ones who disrupted the team unity, and picked feuds with the other contestants because he knew it was good for the ratings. I was sucked into watching his show in the way people stop to gape at car crashes. His candidacy for president is based on the same premise as he constantly is hitting the nerves of a certain segment of the American population while picking fights…

If you're Jane Birkin, the answer is yes.  The actress and muse has requested that luxury fashion house Hermès rename its iconic crocodile Birkin bag after she read PETA's report of cruel slaughtering practices.  The report alleges that the alligators and crocodiles whose skins go into the bags live out their short lives in inhumane conditions.

(The hosts started things off with a bang by calling her Carla instead of Cara.)

Except, you suddenly realize that the text exceeds the app's character limit. Just like Twitter's 140-character tweets, Snapchat restricts the text box to a mere 31 characters, which forces users to condense ideas into quips that are incredibly short, even for social media standards.  I had resigned myself to editing my Snapchat messages over and over, until I saw this picture from HuffPost Style's Associate Editor…

"They are usually a combination of grey, blue, green and a small amount of yellow around the pupil."  When determining the best shades to enhance grey eyes, Suchma references basic color theory principles.

Kids are more aware of fashion and style than ever. They want to make a splash on that first day, and maybe they want to replicate something from a favorite TV show or YouTube video.

The blob felt “very soft,” divers said, and appeared “gelatinous.” From afar, the mass looked almost invisible, but up close, the group spotted countless little dots floating in the 13-foot sphere.   Diver Lutfu Tanriover, who captured the blob (which he called “the thing”) on video, told the blog Deep Sea News that the group felt both “excitement and fear” as they approached the mysterious mass.

      Kipenzi, the baby giraffe who scampered her way into the hearts of millions around the world, died on Tuesday at Dallas Zoo. The animal is said to have broken her neck in an accident inside her enclosure.  The Texas zoo released a statement that said Kipenzi, whose birth in April was watched by more than 3 million people via Animal Planet, had been running around on Tuesday evening when she “made a sharp turn, and ran into the perimeter edge of the [giraffe] habitat.” “She broke three vertebra in her neck, and passed away immediately,” the zoo wrote on…
  • House Votes To End All Major New Rules, Again

    28 Jul 2015 | 5:22 pm
    WASHINGTON -- A bill that critics say would make any significant new regulation all but impossible easily passed the House Tuesday. The measure, known as the REINS Act, for Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny, would require the Obama administration to first weigh the potential costs of any new significant regulation -- not just public health or other benefits -- and then give Congress the power to squash any new rule with large economic impacts, set at $100 million or more. Under the legislation, if Congress failed to act on a new regulation within 70 legislative days, the…

    Would the slow, bloody death of an alligator put you off the most desirable bag in the world? If you're Jane Birkin, the answer is yes.  The actress and muse has requested that luxury fashion house Hermès rename its iconic crocodile Birkin bag after she read PETA's report of cruel slaughtering practices.  The report alleges that the alligators and crocodiles whose skins go into the bags live out their short lives in inhumane conditions. PETA claims the scaly beasts wriggle in agony for hours after their attempted slaughter. Birkin doesn't want such practices associated with her…

  • A Common Motivation to Solve Climate Change

    28 Jul 2015 | 3:18 pm
    Steve Yuhas, a resident of wealthy California enclave Rancho Santa Fe, has become famous for his reaction to drought-imposed water restrictions. His post reads: "(People) should not be forced to live on property with brown lawns, golf on brown courses or apologize for wanting their gardens to be beautiful." In a follow-on interview with the Washington Post, he added, "We pay significant property taxes based on where we live. And, no, we're not all equal when it comes to water." Clearly, public shaming is not going to work on this guy. And we've all heard about Tom Selleck allegedly stealing…
  • Will the Real World Leaders Please Step Forward?

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:56 pm
    Regardless of one's religious, cultural or national affiliations, it would be difficult to avoid the conclusion that only one individual has emerged from the huddle of shadowy figures known as, "world leaders," as a true world leader with vision. Recent history has made it obvious and clear that the prime movers calling the shots in this world are the industries and corporations that dominate and control the global economy. Political leaders and legislators are, for the most part, positioned by these industrial super powers for the primary purpose of insuring that business flows smoothly and…
  • Obama Administration Takes Historic Step Toward Solar Equality, But Much Work Remains

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:26 pm
    For far too long, working-class families have been left out of the solar revolution in the United States. Black elected officials from across the country, including many members of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators (NBCSL), have been among the most vocal advocates for more fairness and inclusiveness in solar programs, taking every opportunity to highlight how the poorest among us are poised to benefit most immediately and profoundly from greater adoption of solar power. Now, finally, the sun is starting to peek through the clouds that have long shrouded these households thanks to…

We've been doing this since our flesh puppet Ronald Reagan took those solar panels off the White House roof.

  • Divers Find Giant Floating Blob, Have No Idea What It Is

      While underwater off the coast of Turkey, a group of divers encountered a translucent blob about the size of a car. The blob felt “very soft,” divers said, and appeared “gelatinous.” From afar, the mass looked almost invisible, but up close, the group spotted countless little dots floating in the 13-foot sphere.   Diver Lutfu Tanriover, who captured the blob (which he called “the thing”) on video, told the blog Deep Sea News that the group felt both “excitement and fear” as they approached the mysterious mass.

    KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -- The last of the wild horses on Great Abaco island in the Bahamas has died, prompting caretakers to collect tissue for possible cloning and hopefully bring back a viable population. Milanne Rehor, project director for the Wild Horses of Abaco Preservation Society, said Tuesday that a U.S. veterinarian removed tissue from the dead mare and the material has just been shipped to an animal cloning technology company in Austin, Texas. "We are sad at the loss. But we are also optimistic because we do have a crack at bringing the herd back," said Rehor, a 71-year-old New…

  • 13 of the Most Haunted Cemeteries in Illinois

    28 Jul 2015 | 7:02 pm
    Although cemeteries can be places of tranquility for some, for others cemeteries arouse fear and trepidation. Some who have traversed cemeteries tell stories of gripping ghost encounters that could convince even staunch skeptics not to walk the grounds of cemeteries that are supposedly laced with paranormal activity. Either way, we thought you'd like this list of some of the allegedly spookiest cemeteries our state has to offer. Unfortunately, decades of ghost stories have encouraged some people to vandalize memorials and other cemetery property. If you do plan to visit any of the cemeteries…

Above, I announced the introduction of this legislation to advocates at a Rally with the National Council on Independent Living. They support the legislation. For too long, the federal government has supported the development of housing that is not visitable or livable for those with mobility…

    Artist Photo by Jeff Walton Photography You have 25 years to make your first record and six months to make the next," used to be a hackneyed insider joke among recording artists who'd gone smiling through the grinder of the showbiz commerce mill and came out kvetching. Now it's an antiquated bit of cynicism, especially to artists like David Feldstein who plots his own rock destiny from his home-studio consul in Atlanta - and at his own pace.

  • Six Months In, How Does Rauner Stack Up on Transparency Promises?

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:04 am
    Reboot Illinois' Madeleine Doubek says Gov. Bruce Rauner's oft-stated campaign goal of bringing unprecedented transparency to the governor's office is proving more difficult in practice than in stump speeches: Six months into his term, Bruce Rauner has become quite secretive for such a self-proclaimed transparent governor. That's the challenge with setting such high campaign expectations, isn't it? Rauner tried to out-reform the quintessential reformer Pat Quinn during the campaign. He was going to shake up Springfield and bring back Illinois. You remember the plaid shirts and the hefty…

    16 Jul 2015 | 1:41 pm
    Austerity, the tool of neoliberal capitalism, stands up to Greek democracy and stares it down. Oh well. We're remarkably comfortable with soulless economics. Pope Francis, speaking this week in Paraguay, cried to the nations of Planet Earth: "I ask them not to yield to an economic model... which needs to sacrifice human lives on the altar of money and profit." But we have yielded to this economic model, in thought, word and deed: "At issue," USA Today informs us, "is whether Greece has taken adequate steps to cut spending and raise taxes to deserve the new three-year, $59 billion infusion of…

    16 Jul 2015 | 9:45 am
    The question comes up in almost every conversation I have these days: "So, you think Rauner or Madigan will win this budget fight?" My answer is consistent: House Speaker Michael Madigan won these fights for 30 years with five previous governors. There's no reason to believe it'll be different with the sixth. But it's not just Madigan's political acumen and experience that give him the edge. Gov. Bruce Rauner has set his own bar for "victory" so high that he appears intent on rejecting small wins in favor of big defeats. His approach to the state budget, in which he won't engage in…

    The Illinois economy has not looked incredibly bright this past year-- and that's an understatement. According to a statistical analysis about fiscal health posted by The Mercatus Center at George Mason University, Illinois has a fiscal health well below the national average. In fact, according to the aggregation of five separate categories, Illinois places in dead last. This map shows the highest ranking states in blue and the lowest ranking states in pink, both in order from darkest to lightest (dark blue being the best and dark pink being the worst).

She had won Oprah's Elie Wiesel essay writing contest a year earlier, and I had watched on TV as Oprah reunited Clemantine with her family. Seventeen months later, I saw her in person. I was with my family at a luncheon for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

    29 Jul 2015 | 3:31 am
      ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — A government official says Turkish jets have hit Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq in a new raid against the separatist group. The warplanes pounded about half a dozen positions belonging to the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, the official told The Associated Press Wednesday. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government rules. The leader of a pro-Kurdish party, Selahattin Demirtas, meanwhile, called for an immediate resumption of a peace process between the government and the PKK. His call came at the same time that a prosecutor demanded…

      PERTH, Australia (AP) — An Australian man has been accused of allowing seven men to repeatedly sexually abuse his 13-year-old daughter over the past two years. Western Australia police charged all eight men on Wednesday with more than 500 child sex offenses. Police arrested the men after receiving a tip-off from the public. Police say the girl's father arranged for them to meet his daughter and assault her in various locations when she was between the ages of 11 and 13. The men are facing 503 charges, including sexual penetration of a child under 13, stupefying with intent to…

      MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican prosecutors announced Tuesday that they had won "historic" convictions and sentences of 697 years in prison against five men for killing 11 women near the border city of Ciudad Juarez. The state prosecutor's office in Chihuahua state said the men lured women with the promise of jobs, but instead subjected them to human trafficking and forced prostitution before killing them. A statement from the office called the sentences on charges of aggravated homicide and human trafficking "exemplary and historic." Ciudad Juarez, which is across from El Paso,…

The Coast Guard pressed ahead with a fifth day of searches for the boys while their families coordinated air searches of their own, insistent that Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos were competent seamen and athletic young men who still could be found alive. But the relentless hunt by sea and air turned up no clue where the 14-year-olds might have drifted from their capsized boat,…

    28 Jul 2015 | 4:24 pm
    Turkish policies towards the Middle East have been in wild oscillation over the past many weeks, even months. Ankara has now finally and begrudgingly initiated military action against ISIS in cooperation with the U.S. But it has also initiated air attacks against its former Kurdish negotiating partners. Just what is going on? There may not be any coherent strategy, but the following seem to me to represent the key issues driving policy. At the top of the list is President Erdoğan and his quest for political survival. After the rebuff to the ruling AKP Party in the June elections that caused…
  • While Working to Eradicate Malaria, Let's Eliminate Malaria Deaths

    28 Jul 2015 | 2:59 pm
    Last week, there was a glimmer of hope for everyone that suffers from malaria: the world's first-ever malaria vaccine received a green light from European authorities. While we aren't out of the woods yet, this is a positive step toward eliminating this deadly foe. While RTS,S, does provide hope for a tomorrow without malaria, we cannot be lulled into complacency -- this is not a panacea for malaria. The sad truth about malaria is that it continues to be one of the most deadly conditions in the world. In 2013, 128 million people contracted malaria, of whom more than half a million died. 1.2…

  • China Today

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:56 pm
    The basis of the China Communist Party's hold on power since Deng is based on persuading the public to trade political say for prosperity. That has worked for several decades, which have seen dramatic economic growth. I think it is now clear that the era of strong economic growth in China is ebbing. One has only to look at the dramatic decline in commodity imports to China from Latin America and Australia to see that China is not the growth engine it once was. As the aging of the Chinese population caused by the one-child policy takes hold, China is losing low-end manufacturing business to…

    "How do you answer the critics who say President Obama hasn't done enough for Africa?" I struggled with an answer to that first interview question during my visit to Nairobi last weekend as Chairman of the U.S. African Development Foundation. It's a question that got raised often in the coverage of the president's visit to Kenya. The expectations were high for the first African-American president, especially here in Kenya, and the comparisons with his predecessor, President George W. Bush, were inevitable. President Bush, after all, had secured his legacy with PEPFAR, the U.S.-funded HIV/AIDS…

  • It Turns Out A Laugh Doesn't Mean Something's Funny

    28 Jul 2015 | 2:34 pm
    No joke: Most laughter isn't generated by what we think is funny. So says a new installment of the PBS Digital Studios series "It's Okay To Be Smart." Less than one in five chuckles comes "in response to humor," according to the video. Instead, we laugh to defuse awkward situations and to tease others, the clip notes. And giggling solo is often a no-go. We are 30 times more likely to laugh with someone else than alone, "It's Okay To Be Smart" says. The video concludes that laughing is more about bonding than comedy, and research published this spring in Human Nature backs up that…

This past Saturday, more than 800 of the aww-dorable dogs (and their owners) flocked to Long Beach, California, for the Summer So Cal Corgi Beach Day, leaving their previous record of 634 corgis, set in April of this year, in the dust.

Suddenly, you and your therapist are one.

Thank you for your complete indifference and 0.0 sense of urgency to the line of customers waiting for assistance in getting on this ferry. Your lack of interest to the patrons who pre-paid for this now sold out ferry really helped me feel like I wasn't going to miss the proverbial (and actual) boat. "Well, don't be late!" you may declare. Let me assure you, I am not a late person. I loathe being late. Because of this, I left my house one and a half…
  • When Does Sex Count?

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:53 am
    There's always an argument when it comes to love - we happen to hear a lot of them. And just like there is always an argument around the term "hooking up," there are also a few semi-sexual experiences that leave us thinking... did that count? (And please--if you are my friend and are going to say "we hooked up," you must follow that up with what that exactly constitutes, because I'm going to ask you anyway.) But really, what actually constitutes having sex and what doesn't or shouldn't? We're not big into keeping a list of lovers, but when you start doing the tally, you really got to know…
  • Pornosophy: The Four S's

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:51 am
    Remember when women used to shave their legs--and other parts? Now that Brazilian or bikini waxing is waning, old fashioned shaving is experiencing a renaissance for those who don't want to remove body hair forever. Before the advent of electric razors, shaving commercials filled the broadcast waves. You'd see an actor's face covered with Old Spice, Palmolive or Barbasol and Schick and Gillette amongst others would provide the blades. But imagine today's unisex commercial. A young man or woman is going to the beach and they want to get rid of all that dreaded pubic hair that sticks out of…
  • I Don't Get Amy Schumer

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:12 am
    "I have no problem if someone says 'I don't think you're funny.' I do have a problem when someone says, 'You're not funny.'" ~Comedian Mike Toomey Right now, Amy Schumer is on top of the world. Adam Sandler, not so much. Amy's movie Trainwreck is a bona fide hit; Sandler's Pixels was being called a bomb before it even opened. I cannot fire up my Interwebs without seeing a story about one of the two of them. Because I'm a comedian, people ask me why someone popular, is popular. As stated, today that's Amy Schumer. Last year it was Kevin Hart, and before him Daniel Tosh. Long ago, it was Adam…

  • If Teachers Were Treated Like Pro Athletes, According To 'Key & Peele'

    29 Jul 2015 | 2:56 am
      What if teachers were treated like pro athletes? That’s the premise behind this spot-on “Key & Peele” sketch. In the clip, the comedic duo reports on “the latest developments in the exciting world of pro teaching” on the show “TeachingCenter.” Watch for some hefty paychecks, the highly-anticipated High School Teacher Draft and (what else?!) a flashy car endorsement.   Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Jon Stewart has a little more than a week to go before his tenure as "Daily Show" host runs out, and people want answers. What's he always scribbling on those blue pages? Who were his favorite guests? And if given the choice of Larry Wilmore, John Oliver and Stephen Colbert, who would he fuck, marry and kill?   On Tuesday night's show, correspondents Jordan Klepper and Hasan Minhaj extracted the answers to those fan-submitted questions with torture, including eating pizza with a knife and fork, ad-libbing Bruce Springsteen lyrics and even threatening him with the dreaded Arby's…
  • It Turns Out A Laugh Doesn't Mean Something's Funny

    28 Jul 2015 | 2:34 pm
    No joke: Most laughter isn't generated by what we think is funny. So says a new installment of the PBS Digital Studios series "It's Okay To Be Smart." Less than one in five chuckles comes "in response to humor," according to the video. Instead, we laugh to defuse awkward situations and to tease others, the clip notes. And giggling solo is often a no-go. We are 30 times more likely to laugh with someone else than alone, "It's Okay To Be Smart" says. The video concludes that laughing is more about bonding than comedy, and research published this spring in Human Nature backs up that…
  • 800 Corgis Took Over A Beach In California This Weekend

    What do you get when more than 800 corgis invade one beach for a day? For starters, you get 800 wiggling corgi butts. Just imagine this, multiplied by 800: You also get 3,200 adorably stumpy corgi legs, 500 pounds of dog food donated to Queen's Best Stumpy Dog Rescue and one hell of a party. This past Saturday, more than 800 of the aww-dorable dogs (and their owners) flocked to Long Beach, California, for the Summer So Cal Corgi Beach Day, leaving their previous record of 634 corgis, set in April of this year, in the dust. Beyond Natural Pet Food agreed to donate one pound…

    28 Jul 2015 | 1:34 pm
    One week after Riley Curry celebrated her third birthday with an epic rendition of the Nae Nae dance, Devon Still's 5-year-old daughter Leah issued a challenge to the toddler: dance off! A video posted by Devon Still (@man_of_still75) on Jul 26, 2015 at 5:35pm PDT   In an adorable video the NFL dad posted on his Instagram, Leah says, "Riley, I saw your video. You think you can 'Whip' better than me?" She then launched into her own performance of the viral dance.  Stephen Curry's spotlight-stealing daughter still hasn't responded to Leah's challenge, but we're waiting in…

  • Being a Mindful Child: 24 Hours in DC with DC

    Mallika Chopra
    16 Jul 2015 | 1:32 pm
    24 Hours in Washington D.C. with my father, Deepak Chopra In my book, Living With Intent, Take Action is an important step in my path to INTENT. The insight for this step came to me when my friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and I realized that the now is the time to live the purposeful and connected life I seek. (And for the many who have asked, the good news is that my friend is in remission.) Loss has also reminded me to have gratitude and be present with those we love if we have the opportunity to do so. In my 40s, many people I love have transitioned, and I have seen family and…
  • 6 Steps to a Healthier, Happier, More Purposeful Life

    Mallika Chopra
    8 Apr 2015 | 3:04 pm
    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…
  • Where Do We Draw the Line With Bullying?

    Mallika Chopra
    8 Feb 2013 | 12:40 pm
    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?

    Mallika Chopra
    24 Aug 2012 | 8:43 am
    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…

    What would you do if you were given $100,000 to take the year off? Would you quit your miserable job, buy some cozy sweats, redo your bedroom and chill at home watching movies, eating good food, sleep and get back to a state of balance? 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? Would you decide to volunteer for a year -- perhaps give back to your community with money and time? Would you go back to school?  Pay off your loans? Start a college…

  • Fight for 15 Keeps on Stepping

    Robert L. Borosage
    23 Jul 2015 | 7:48 am
    Chanting "$15.00 and a union," thousands of federal contract workers walked off their jobs yesterday, led by the Senate's cafeteria workers who serve Senators their food. They were joined by Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, led by Keith Ellison (D-Minn) and Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz). Sanders announced they were introducing legislation to raise the federal minimum wage to $15.00 an hour. Sanders also reiterated his call on President Obama - joined in a formal letter by Elizabeth Warren and 18 other Senators -- to give…
  • The Sanders Challenge

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

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

    23 Apr 2015 | 6:16 am
    This week in Washington, hundreds of low wage federal government contract workers walked off their jobs, demonstrating for a living wage and a union. They included Senate janitors and food service workers, the workers who serve the Senators their food and clean up the messes they leave. Carrying signs reading "Hiring: A President who will sign a $15 +Union Executive Order," these workers are calling on President Obama to lead, asking him to put government on the side of workers by issuing an executive order that would give preference in government procurement and licensing to companies that…

    "I'm getting ready to do something too. I'm running for president. Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times. But the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. 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. Then came the din. TV talk shows went Hillary 24/7, featuring heated exchanges of talking…

    Last week my granddaughter Amanda (22) and I watched U2 do their stuff in Boston at the TD Garden-- the U2 INNOCENCE + EXPERIENCE TOUR 2015. The music was good (fuck that, perfect) but forget that for the moment. The real story was the production and the energy this old band displayed blowing all conceptions of lazy old rockers resting on their laurels out of the water. George Balanchine never produced a better or more precise ballet. This was rock as choreographed surgical strike. The music was the easy part. Hitting their marks on a series of catwalks and movable stages, while…

    &nbsp; In the last few months there have been a chorus of anti-Bill Maher articles in the liberal/left press. For instance Salon has published a series of articles accusing Maher of bigotry. In "7 times Bill Maher was a straight-up bigot" Joanna Rothkopf  writes this in Salon: Bill Maher's long, illustrious career is perhaps, more than anything else, an excellent example of mass public manipulation. Under the guise of being a liberal comedian, he has managed to build for himself an ultra-successful career predicated on being a massive dick. Maher has been consistently…

I call on all bloggers who value freedom of speech to pass this on. I salute the brave Saudi blogger Raif Badawi-- who was convicted of insulting Islam and was brought after Friday prayers to a public square in the port city of Jeddah and flogged 50 times before hundreds of spectators, a witness to the lashing said. He will be flogged every Friday until he has received all 1000 lashes. The witness said…

    Frank Schaeffer
    4 Dec 2014 | 7:05 pm
    For me, as a child in the mission, Christmas meant feeling guilty because Mom did so much and we mere mortals did so little. My childhood Yuletide question was: "Mom, who's going to be in our house for Christmas?" The answer never varied: "The guests God brought to us this year, my dear." Mom stayed up all night wrapping gifts and making everything wonderfully and terrifyingly perfect. That's why every Christmas morning I found the four-foot-long bulging wool stocking stuffed with individually wrapped gifts on the foot of my bed. The horror was that all the strangers my parents invited to…

    Seit Wochen kommt es in Deutschland fast jeden Tag zu rassistisch motivierten Gewalttaten gegen Asylbewerberheime. Die Zahl der - meist rechtsextrem motivierten - Übergriffe ist in den vergangenen Monaten rasant gestiegen. Die Polizei registrierte allein im ersten Halbjahr 2015 gut 200 Delikte dieser Art - und damit etwa so viel wie im gesamten vergangenen Jahr. Die Flüchtlingsorganisation Pro Asyl fordert nun Konsequenzen. Asylbewerbern müsse dringend ein besserer Schutz vor rechten Übergriffen gewährt werden.

    It's no surprise that the powerful both set the rules and break the rules with impunity. The world system isn't presided over by Miss Manners. For small countries like Greece, there's not much room for maneuver between the regulations of the EU and the general parameters established by globalization. There isn't much room for democracy either, as Greek citizens discovered when they voted in Syriza and attempted to vote out austerity in the more recent referendum. Iran, a larger country that plays a strategic role in the Middle East, has considerably more room for maneuver than does Greece.

Ziel der Täter sei es, Angst und Schrecken zu verbreiten und politische…

  • Afghanistan Investigates Claims Taliban Chief Mullah Omar Is Dead

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:01 am
    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- An Afghan official said Wednesday his government is examining claims that reclusive Taliban leader Mullah Omar is dead. The Taliban could not be immediately reached on the government's comments about Omar, who has been declared dead many times before. Omar, the one-eyed, secretive head of the Taliban and an al-Qaida ally, led a bloody insurgency against U.S.-led forces after they toppled him from his rule in Afghanistan in 2001. Zafar Hashemi, a deputy spokesman for Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, made the announcement at a hastily called news conference Wednesday in…
  • How To Wear Fall's Newest Fashions While Summer's Still In Swing

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    While we have all spent the past few weeks rejoicing over all the summer sales, it's easy to forget why stores are getting rid of their warm-weather merchandise -- to make way for fall fashion.  Yes, turtleneck season is coming and many stores have already started putting out their fall wares. Instead of waiting until September to start your shopping (when they will probably be sold out of your size), why not get a head start now? There are tons of items on the market that you can buy now, wear for the rest of the summer and well into the cooler temps. Behold, the fall items we're…
  • If You Sit All Day, Try This Yoga Pose To Get Out All Those Kinks

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    As yoga instructor Jules Mitchell explains in the video above, restorative fish pose is basically the opposite position of the one your body's stuck in all day. Between sitting at your desk and flopping upright on your couch to watch TV, you're in a near-constant hunched-over state. Excessive sitting has been shown to deteriorate muscles and make it harder to lose weight, so physical activity like walking, running and yoga is a smart way to combat the havoc it wreaks. Follow along as Mitchell demonstrates the proper way to unwind in this restful pose. To do it yourself, you'll need…
  • A Definitive Ranking Of The Best And Worst Cheese Puffs

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    Is there any snack food in the world better than cheese puffs? Sorry, that was a rhetorical question, because the answer is hell no. Cheese snacks are the ultimate snack, period, end of story, full stop. But while we love a good cheesy nosh, we aren't fools -- we know that cheese puffs aren't all created equal.   So, to settle the great debate once and for all, we embarked on a very scientific journey to discover which cheese puff reigns supreme. To be clear about our process, we simply ranked cheese puffs based on our own personal preferences. So feel free to disagree, but you'll be…
  • We Tracked Down 17 Of The Most Lust-Worthy Lipstick Shades

    29 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    Lipstick is arguably the most beloved item in our beauty arsenal. Few things have the power to completely transform our look in two seconds flat. Plus, there's no denying the importance of a product that was once supposedly worn by George Washington, and also used to indicate whether or not a woman was a prostitute.  These days, the biggest problem we have with lipstick is figuring out which color to wear or how to stop buying so many tubes (answer to the latter: it's impossible). Thankfully, there's an endless feed of lipstick inspiration at our fingertips: Instagram. …
