  • David Juskow: NBC Wonders Why Bother to Sign On

    30 Rock on Huffington Post

    For seven years NBC tried to tell everyone that 30 Rock was a hit. It was not. Critics enjoyed it but no one was rabidly watching it like Modern Family. The Blacklist is the ONLY holdover for new shows from last season and that is only good because James Spader is truly "the man".

    This week proved Ebola panic spreads much, much faster than the disease itself -- with the former needing only contact with cable news, talk radio, social media, or political ads to proliferate. But with President Obama appointing an Ebola czar on Friday, we can question our preparedness without legitimizing the fear-mongering. As Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, told HuffPost's Sam Stein, without a "10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would've gone through clinical trials and would have been ready."…

  • Kaiser Permanente Is Failing Its Mental Health Patients

    24 Oct 2014 | 6:16 pm
    In September, after more than a year of stonewalling its patients and employees, Kaiser Permanente finally paid a $4-million fine levied against it by state regulators because of the HMO's chronic, illegal, and too often tragic failures in mental health care. Spurred by whistleblower complaints from Kaiser's own mental health clinicians, an investigation by the state's Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) found the HMO guilty of "serious" and "systemic" violations of California law that put mental health patients at risk. The result: In June 2013 the DMHC hit Kaiser with a $4-million fine…

    Quando estava dando os últimos retoques em "A Terceira Medida do Sucesso", visitei o Brasil para o lançamento do Brasil Post, em parceria com o Grupo Abril. Era uma época que tinha tudo para ser muito estressante - um fluxo constante de prazos da editora e a pressão extra de seguir meus próprios conselhos de dormir o suficiente todas as noites -, mas me lembraram de que o Brasil é um país muito em sintonia com os temas sobre os quais estava escrevendo. Muita tinta e muitos pixels costumam ser dedicados à ascensão do país…

    This week the world was introduced to a glorious -- if unlikely -- new couple, united for all time by the matchmakers at the Norwegian Nobel Committee: Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, recipients of this year's Nobel Peace Prize. She's a 17-year-old Pakistani Muslim; he's a 60-year-old Indian Hindu. Together they're being honored for leading the fight for children's rights -- and against extremism -- worldwide. Malala, of course, is already well-known. After being shot by the Taliban in 2012 for trying to educate herself, she courageously spoke up even louder. "They can only shoot a…

There's no better time to celebrate the work and spirit of our amazing German team under the leadership of Cherno Jobatey, our editorial director, and Sebastian Matthes, our editor-in-chief. It's hard to believe that a year has passed since we gathered in our office in Munich, along with our partners from Hubert Burda Media's Tomorrow Focus, to launch HuffPost Deutschland as a journalistic outlet and platform. It's also hard to believe that, at that time, we would occasionally hear that Germans simply weren't interested in…

  • Friday Talking Points -- McConnell For Sale!

    24 Oct 2014 | 6:05 pm
    A program note, before we get started: there will be no Friday Talking Points column next week. We have to make room for our traditional Hallowe'en column, where we try to scare the pants off of everyone across the political spectrum with spooky tales of what the upcoming election might mean (plus, we get to show off our politically-inspired Jack-o-lanterns). So don't miss that, but the Friday Talking Points column won't be back until after the election. Campaign season has reached its peak, and is getting downright frenetic in all the big battleground Senate races. One of these is Kentucky,…
  • Expand CDC Precautions Based Upon Evidence-Based Science: Quarantine, Not a Ban

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:43 pm
    All major public health organizations, including the International Red Cross, challenge the scientific merits of a travel ban on African nationals traveling from Ebola-affected countries. It doesn't take a leap to appreciate the political and possibly even xenophobic implications of calling for such a ban shortly before hotly contested midterm races. The time for politicization must end. We have very little time to avert the predicted 1.4-million-new-cases-by-January scenario, with its attendant risks in an interconnected world, unless we get serious and integrate evidence-based strategies…

    For years our Congress has ignored humans' impact on climate change. Many members of Congress have used terms like "pseudoscience" and ignored the fact that 97 percent of scientists studying the issue have concluded that climate change is real, that its impact will significantly worsen with time and that human activity is the principal cause. It is about time for Congress to address the issue and pass legislation that provides an innovative approach to both mitigating and adapting to climate change. Ignorance, benign neglect and self-interest need to be overcome. That is what leadership is…
  • Many Questions Loom Ahead of Ukrainian Elections

    24 Oct 2014 | 4:54 pm
    This Sunday, October 26th, Ukrainians will elect a new Parliament, continuing Ukraine's democratic process despite an undeclared war in the east of the country. The current Parliament, elected in October 2012, remains largely a holdover from the regime of former President Victor Yanukovych. At Yanukovych's request, this Parliament passed "dictatorship laws" that escalated the violence during the Euromaidan protests. Several current deputies in the Parliament have been accused of supporting the separatists in the east. The Ukrainian people deserve a chance to elect new representatives who will…

  • Cleaning Crews Move In After Ebola Diagnosed In New York

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:51 pm
    NEW YORK -- As the largest U.S. city grapples with its first case of Ebola, doctors, nurses, and Health Department officials have leapt to the forefront of a massive response effort. But there's another, unlikely crew of professionals fighting the virus: The cleaners. From Craig Spencer's Harlem apartment to a bowling alley in Brooklyn, cleaning crews are being called in to sanitize any lingering hazard from the Ebola virus -- and to assuage public fears about visiting establishments patronized by the Doctors Without Borders physician. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the…
  • Congress Says The CDC Can't Be Trusted On Ebola

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:50 pm
    WASHINGTON -- Members of Congress took the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to task at a hearing on Ebola Friday, hammering the agency over how it has handled the virus's presence in the United States. The hearing came a day after Craig Spencer, a doctor in New York City, tested positive for Ebola, becoming the first confirmed case in the state. Only three other people have been diagnosed with the disease in the U.S., including Thomas Eric Duncan, who contracted Ebola in Liberia, and two nurses who cared for Duncan after he became ill in this country. Both nurses were declared…
  • Elizabeth Warren Teams Up With Orrin Hatch To Push Huge Science Research Fund

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:44 pm
    WASHINGTON -- A bipartisan duo of Senate heavyweights is set to unveil an unusual bill that would give lawmakers an incentive to fund biomedical research and, potentially, add billions to that mission. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) have been quietly working for the past year on the Invest for a Healthy Future Act, a bill that may end up increasing money for government agencies that fund research by more than $21.5 billion over the next dozen years. The timing of the bill, amid growing concern about America’s vulnerability to Ebola or a biological attack, may give…
  • Reagan Astrologer, Joan Quigley, Dies At 87

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:25 pm
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Joan Quigley, the astrologer who helped determine President Ronald Reagan's schedule and claimed to have convinced him to soften his stance toward the Soviet Union, has died at the age of 87. Quigley died Oct. 21 at her San Francisco home after an unspecified illness, the San Francisco Chronicle, quoting Quigley's sister, Ruth, said Friday. Nancy Reagan began consulting Quigley after the 1981 assassination attempt on her husband. She wanted to keep him from getting shot again, Nancy Reagan wrote in her 1989 memoir, "My Turn." Entertainer Merv Griffin had told her that…

    MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Riots that erupted after West Virginia University's win over Baylor are costing the city of Morgantown more than $45,000. In a news release late Friday, officials said the expenses include the cost of repairing damage to street lights and light posts, as well as replacing street and traffic signs removed by rioters. Authorities say crowds pushed over street lights and threw rocks, beer bottles and other items at public safety personnel and their vehicles. Numerous fires also were set. More than a dozen people are facing charges from the disturbances following last…

    Turn on CNN any Sunday morning and its principal programs most likely will intrigue you, particularly if you are watching Fareed Zakaria, Brian Stelter and their casts of articulate and intelligent characters who "analyze" or have an opinion about "the news." They are consistent, informative and almost always persuasive.

Here are some of the most fascinating things we learned: 1. Konner loves the Internet fervor surrounding "Girls." Though she acknowledges it can turn nasty, Konner appreciates fans and critics' heated engagement with "Girls." "I actually love it," she said. "There are days where I'm like 'Oh my god,…

    Is it ironic or just ignorant? I don't know. An American journalist is brutally murdered by ISIS terrorists and the bombs are flying, coalitions are formed to attack them and put an end to their heinous crimes...all of which I support. However, two days ago an innocent 3-month-old American child, in her stroller, was plowed down by a Hamas terrorist in Jerusalem who purposely ran his car into a crowd on the street. We did not hear a peep! No bombs, no coalitions, not even a 10-second mention on the evening news. Some would argue that death is expected in Israel and the Palestinian…

Reflecting the era they come from, and with the benefit of history, the various stories in this single newspaper issue are both enlightening and disturbing, revealing and infuriating, telling and common.

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:14 am
    The focus has been intense on the wildly disproportionate number of black students who are suspended or expelled from America's public schools. But what has flown quietly under the radar is the even more wildly disproportionate number of black students who are arrested on high school and even elementary school campuses for alleged behavior that in decades past was handled in the principal's office and with a call home to parents. That's still the way school infractions are handled with most white students and in most suburban public schools. But if the student is black, a cross word between…

    Climate pollution threatens our children's health, cherished wildlife and forests, agriculture and our coastlines. Its impacts only get worse, and more costly, the longer we continue to make decisions for the future that commit us to more carbon pollution. President Obama has underscored his desire for the federal government to lead by example. But some agencies in his administration are fumbling an easy opportunity to do just that. We have the tools available today to enable our federal agencies to account for the damage caused by carbon pollution before approving oil and gas developments,…

    24 Oct 2014 | 6:16 pm
    In September, after more than a year of stonewalling its patients and employees, Kaiser Permanente finally paid a $4-million fine levied against it by state regulators because of the HMO's chronic, illegal, and too often tragic failures in mental health care. Spurred by whistleblower complaints from Kaiser's own mental health clinicians, an investigation by the state's Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) found the HMO guilty of "serious" and "systemic" violations of California law that put mental health patients at risk. The result: In June 2013 the DMHC hit Kaiser with a $4-million fine…

  • Scaling Up: What It Takes to Create Responsible Practices on a Global Scale

    24 Oct 2014 | 4:49 pm
    The complexity -- and potential for good -- of global reach. Companies that are the largest in their industry, such as Unilever or Nike, face a unique challenge each time they make a move in sustainability. Should they use their scale to change their industry globally for the greater good, or should they prioritize quick wins, creating aspirational, sustainability-based fame for their products? Think of Starbucks and disposable coffee cups. For years they tried to chip away at the issue of waste on their own, but they ground to a halt at the point where they were leading the industry and…
  • Matson Navigation Company, Inc. Pleads Guilty To Criminal Charges In Molasses Spill

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:56 pm
    HONOLULU (AP) -- A shipping company pleaded guilty plea Friday to criminal charges from a 1,400-ton molasses spill in Honolulu Harbor that killed more than 26,000 fish and other marine life, but a federal judge said he wants to examine the legality of $600,000 in community service payments the company has agreed to pay. U.S. Magistrate Judge Richard Puglisi accepted the plea from Matson Navigation Company Inc. to two misdemeanor charges for illegally releasing the molasses last year. The company and federal prosecutors wanted to proceed immediately with sentencing, with both sides agreeing…
  • Cleaning Crews Move In After Ebola Diagnosed In New York

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:51 pm
    NEW YORK -- As the largest U.S. city grapples with its first case of Ebola, doctors, nurses, and Health Department officials have leapt to the forefront of a massive response effort. But there's another, unlikely crew of professionals fighting the virus: The cleaners. From Craig Spencer's Harlem apartment to a bowling alley in Brooklyn, cleaning crews are being called in to sanitize any lingering hazard from the Ebola virus -- and to assuage public fears about visiting establishments patronized by the Doctors Without Borders physician.

  • Kaiser Permanente Is Failing Its Mental Health Patients

    24 Oct 2014 | 6:16 pm
    In September, after more than a year of stonewalling its patients and employees, Kaiser Permanente finally paid a $4-million fine levied against it by state regulators because of the HMO's chronic, illegal, and too often tragic failures in mental health care. Spurred by whistleblower complaints from Kaiser's own mental health clinicians, an investigation by the state's Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) found the HMO guilty of "serious" and "systemic" violations of California law that put mental health patients at risk. The result: In June 2013 the DMHC hit Kaiser with a $4-million fine…

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:00 pm
    It's increasingly evident that business leaders who are capable of experiencing and demonstrating empathy, compassion, and humility have greater success. Research as well as direct business experience confirms this. One recent example is a study of 1500 leaders and their employees.

According to the research findings, "Leaders with a strong self-insight demonstrate a good understanding of their own needs, emotions, abilities and behavior. On top of…

  • Google VP Alan Eustace Leaps From Stratosphere, Beats Felix Baumgartner's Record Jump

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:13 pm
    That's one giant leap! Alan Eustace, a senior vice president at Google, set a new world record today by completing the highest-altitude free fall yet--parachuting from 135,908 feet (or 25 miles) above Earth. The record was previously held by daredevil skydiver Felix Baumgartner, who leaped from 24 miles above Earth in October 2012. To put that in perspective, scientists say you officially enter space at 73 miles above Earth's surface. That's pretty high up--and Eustace was about a third of the way there. (Story continues below) Eustace gets lifted to his peak altitude of 135,908 feet via a…

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:54 pm
    Norman Lear is a comic poet on the order of the Greeks who, just our luck, came of age at the dawn of the television era. In another time he would have been perhaps Aristophanes or Voltaire, or Swift or Twain. He has always said, "If you can get people to laugh, you can get them to care." Norman Lear is the definitive artist of our American culture. But I write here about Norman, my friend, who has taught me personally -- I write about how he informed my life. Norman Lear transformed my hopes. Before I knew Norman, I hoped to be successful as a conductor, to tackle the great works and to…

It is only playing on around six hundred screens so it might not even be available in your area. But if it is, go see it. It is worth your time and effort.

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:50 pm
    Stephen Hawking, ALS and all, is such a "character," he's perfect as the charismatic center of a movie. That's partly because of his brilliance in physics and cosmology, partly because his bold yet childlike persona, and partly because of the woman who kept his brain alive, his wife Jane. A new movie based on her account of their courtship, marriage, and ultimate friendship, The Theory of Everything, stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones as this exceptional couple. Last week at lunch at the Lotos Club, in a Q&A led by the charming Stephen Daldry, the stars and screenwriter Anthony McCarten…

However, far from resting the laurels of his hard-earned fame, Coster-Waldau has kept busy before the cameras. His latest effort, 1,000 Times Goodnight, stars Juliette Binoche as Rebecca, one of the world's top war photojournalists, but she's also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone.

Will Taylor, an interior design expert and author, tells the web series #OWNSHOW that when it comes to black, he goes for a softer shade. "I always try and go for a chalkboard black," Taylor says.

A few of my friends have gotten married from online dating, so I saw good in it and felt safe. I spent about a day working on my profile, figuring out what I would say, how I would say it and which photos I would include. My particular profile was rejected about ten times before I had to call their…

Let's start with poor Renée Zellweger (45). http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/oct/23/where-has-real-renee-zellweger-gone It's terrible for anybody to be watched like a hawk for crow's feet, every less than pouty lip, every sagging particle of one's body.

    I like to paint my nails weird colors. I've always loved to do that. When I was a little girl and my mom would treat me to a manicure, she'd "o0oo0h" and "ahhhh" me toward the more modest colors.Essie's Ballet Slipper or Marshmallow would be the most ideal choice. But then she'd walk away and I found myself flirting with a rainbow of colors to choose from. I'd reach for the brightest. The boldest. The one that was the most full because other people were scared to wear it. And if I couldn't decide which color to select (and over 15 minutes had past), I'd select a few and ask the manicurist…

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:27 pm
    For years our Congress has ignored humans' impact on climate change. Many members of Congress have used terms like "pseudoscience" and ignored the fact that 97 percent of scientists studying the issue have concluded that climate change is real, that its impact will significantly worsen with time and that human activity is the principal cause. It is about time for Congress to address the issue and pass legislation that provides an innovative approach to both mitigating and adapting to climate change.

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:56 pm
    HONOLULU (AP) -- A shipping company pleaded guilty plea Friday to criminal charges from a 1,400-ton molasses spill in Honolulu Harbor that killed more than 26,000 fish and other marine life, but a federal judge said he wants to examine the legality of $600,000 in community service payments the company has agreed to pay.

  • NPR Slashes Number Of Environment Reporters

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:55 pm
    National Public Radio is down to just one environment reporter, and he's only covering the beat part time, InsideClimate News reported Friday. As of early 2014, NPR had three reporters and an editor on the environment beat. Now they have one person, science reporter Christopher Joyce, holding down coverage of the issue, and his stories span a broad range of issues beyond the environment. The other three environment staffers have left NPR or moved to other beats. While other reporters could, of course, fill in with environment coverage, as needed, InsideClimate's analysis of NPR's archives…
  • Trick or Treat? The Frightening Climate Costs of Halloween Candy

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:33 pm
    Americans will spend more than two billion dollars on candy this Halloween, making it candy's biggest holiday. This is fun for kids, great for dentists, and downright fantastic for the Mars family. But before you head over to the store to buy this year's bowl of treats, you need to be made aware of a really scary, but not widely recognized, fact: Many Halloween candies contain palm oil, the large-scale, monoculture production of which is driving deforestation, extinction, human rights abuses, and climate change! Highly versatile and inexpensive, this vegetable oil is a globally traded…

  • New Studies, Reports Heighten Need for Action on Climate Change

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:27 pm
    For years our Congress has ignored humans' impact on climate change. Many members of Congress have used terms like "pseudoscience" and ignored the fact that 97 percent of scientists studying the issue have concluded that climate change is real, that its impact will significantly worsen with time and that human activity is the principal cause. It is about time for Congress to address the issue and pass legislation that provides an innovative approach to both mitigating and adapting to climate change. Ignorance, benign neglect and self-interest need to be overcome. That is what leadership is…

    The complexity -- and potential for good -- of global reach. Companies that are the largest in their industry, such as Unilever or Nike, face a unique challenge each time they make a move in sustainability. Should they use their scale to change their industry globally for the greater good, or should they prioritize quick wins, creating aspirational, sustainability-based fame for their products? Think of Starbucks and disposable coffee cups. For years they tried to chip away at the issue of waste on their own, but they ground to a halt at the point where they were leading the industry and…

  • Learning Los Angeles: Ron Finley on Grounding the City

    24 Oct 2014 | 12:38 pm
    Fashion designer and "gangsta gardener" Ron Finley has a vision for how communities should live and work together. Ron's do-it-yourself remedy for his South Central L. A. food prison, where, by design, residents have to escape in order to find healthy food, was to plant fruit trees and vegetables on the parkway outside his house, and share his harvest with neighbors. In violation of the city's parkway ordinance, Finley was cited and fined. His 2013 TEDTalk about urban gardening, with 2 million views and still rising, made him an international star.

    Recent headlines have sounded the alarm on the mounting impacts of climate change. Over the past few months, we have seen everything from the hottest summer on record, to historic droughts and extreme wildfires ravaging communities in California, to vanishing wildlife habitat in Alaska, to toxic algae blooming out of control and contaminating drinking water supplies in America's heartland. How much more do we need to know about the devastating effects of climate change before Congress takes action? In California, the first six months of 2014 were the hottest on record, and 82 percent of the…

  • For Californians, The Drought Is Almost As Big Of A Concern As Their Jobs

    24 Oct 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Californians are almost just as worried about the state’s water woes as they are about their jobs, a survey from the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) found this week. Twenty-six percent of residents named water and drought as the most important issues facing California, while 29 percent of respondents identified jobs and the economy as the most pressing problems. Mark Baldassare, president and CEO of the nonprofit think thank, told KQED Science that 26 percent is an “incredible number.” “It’s been the duration of this [three-year] drought and the fact that it’s…

    You give your dog a treat every time the two of you go on a walk. Why not give the local animal shelter a treat, too? That's the premise of Walk for a Dog, a smartphone app that donates money to an animal shelter of your choosing every time you walk your dog. According to Walk for a Dog's parent organization, WoofTrax, donations are funded via sponsorship deals and advertising, and generally vary from 11 to 25 cents per mile, depending on the number of people who have signed up to walk in benefit of a particular animal organization.

  • These Eerie Photos Of Abandoned Places Are So Much More Than 'Ruin Porn'

    24 Oct 2014 | 2:27 pm
    People love looking at photos of abandoned buildings. The more opulent a structure once was -- and the more dilapidated it currently is -- the better. But why the fascination with this so-called "ruin porn"? Chicago-based photographer Eric Holubow's new book, Abandoned: America's Vanishing Landscapes, released this summer, focuses on the product of his explorations inside abandoned properties. Holubow believes there is "a degree of fatalism" in his work, as well as a reminder that buildings aren't immortal. There's a "shared fate" between a building and the individuals who built it, he says.

State Rep. Mike Bost (R), who has been dubbed "Mad Mike" by Democrats who want to stop him from unseating Rep. Bill Enyart (D-Ill.), has become famous for his angry rants on the state House floor that have gone viral on YouTube.

    "Femvertising" is here, and it's probably here to stay. Ads catering to women and girls, citing feminism and female empowerment, and highlighting sexist double standards, seem to be everywhere these days. And they may be improving companies' bottom lines. Studies show that women respond positively to these ads -- 52 percent of respondents in an October 2014 survey from SheKnows said they had purchased a product because they "liked how the marketer and its ads presented women." However, some companies have been accused of walking the walk, but not talking the talk. Pantene's ads decry gender…

    Hey, Illinoisans--turn off the lights and put down your phones. You're not getting enough sleep! Jawbone, the creators of a fitness-tracking bracelet, tracked the bedtimes of 1 million of the bracelet's wearers across the U.S. by county. According to the maps, most Illinoisans are going to be bed between 11 p.m. and 11:40 p.m. every night and getting between 6.75 and 7.25 hours of sleep every night.

    By: Andy Kryza and Liz Childers Sometimes, you go to a bar for a fancy cocktail. Sometimes, you go for a rare beer paired with some gastropub innovation. And sometimes -- most times -- you go to drink in a dark, windowless room, where the drinks are stiffer than a 2x4, beers are as yellow as a Frank Zappa snowcone, and conversations are limited to grunts and threats over sitting on "Dave's stool". For Thrillist's second-annual list of America's best dive bars, we surveyed co-workers, travelers, readers, and several stool-hoarding Daves to find the best no-frills bars in the country. Granted,…

But the PRC will not, indeed, cannot, give residents of Hong Kong what it refuses to give the rest of its citizens. The city's future depends on finding a…

While exact figures are hard to come by, tens of thousands of Israelis are believed to have moved to the German capital since 2011, according to The New Yorker. Many cite the cheap rent and low cost of living as reasons for moving to Berlin.

Needless to say, like all men in a jam, Joe was looking for a woman to provide him employment, a place to live, and function as a meal ticket. Of course, like all predators, he was able to…

But with coordinated logistics, bribes and chocolate, combined families can learn how to survive without a food fight, bloodletting or lawsuits. Just keep the wine and the children breathing. Even with careful preparation, sometimes the best plans get burned along with the roast. It's tempting to go over the river and through the woods to Grandma's house and…

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:04 pm
    Every actor has to start somewhere! Even Emmy-award winning John Goodman and Megan Mullally, who both appear in this vintage Mcdonald's breakfast commercial. (You're welcome.) Next time you're watching the clock during a commercial break, remember that random dish soap actress could be a huge star like any day now.
  • Tommy Davidson: People Care About Hannibal Buress' Bill Cosby Takedown Because Of Race

    24 Oct 2014 | 1:58 pm
    Comedian Hannibal Buress' scathing stand-up set lambasting "rapist" Bill Cosby made headlines last week, but "In Living Color" alum Tommy Davidson thinks there’s a racial element to all the attention. In a HuffPost Live interview on Friday, Davidson weighed in on Buress’ set, during which he brought up the multiple allegations of sexual abuse that have marred Cosby’s reputation. "It seems like the media only picks up on African Americans when they have these public beefs,” he told host Marc Lamont Hill. "You never see, like, Woody Allen saying something about Mel Brooks. And even if…

    With ISIS dominating the headlines with their vicious, Dark Age brand of extremism, arguments over "boots on the ground" and unhinged declarations about all of us all getting "killed back here at home!" by supposed Serious People talking about running for president (God Help Us) from their influential permanent perches on our increasingly Kardashian-esque Sunday shows.

    Bob Cesca
    3 Oct 2014 | 2:14 pm
    If you were in a coma for the last six years, then suddenly awakened this past weekend to observe both John Oliver's Last Week Tonight on HBO and Bill O'Reilly's appearance on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, you might assume they were talking about the military actions of two very separate and distinct presidents. On one hand, there was Bill O'Reilly who continued to push for a stronger response to Islamic jihad. Not only should the president seek to hire a mercenary army of 25,000 privateers, but we should also somehow recruit Zombie Patton to roll into Syria with the Third Army from…
  • GOP Continues to Blow Off Rule About Not Criticizing the President During Wartime

    Bob Cesca
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:59 pm
    The biggest news of the past 10 days: President Obama launched the first sorties into Syria, targeting ISIS terrorists. Within 24 hours, however, Republicans everywhere decided to turn an awkward salute into a near-impeachable crime against humanity, thus violating one of their most sacred rules from the Bush administration era: never criticize the commander-in-chief during wartime. Here's just another friendly reminder of what I thought was the rule about this kind of behavior (note that O'Reilly and Hannity have been especially critical of Obama): "You don't criticize the commander-in-chief…

    Bob Cesca

    There are a few things we know about the current status of Meet the Press. As Chez Pazienza pointed out, the way NBC News forced David Gregory out of his job was horrendously bad form. Like or dislike Gregory's style, there's no justifying the way he was tossed out. Nevertheless, NBC's choice for a replacement was essentially a lateral move -- swapping Gregory for MSNBC's Chuck Todd, who's basically the same person, torn from the same establishment circuit. There's really nothing Chuck Todd brings to the show that David Gregory didn't already provide. Except for one thing. Those of us old…

On the economy, the president reported: This morning we found out that our economy actually grew at a stronger clip in the second quarter than we originally thought. Companies are investing, consumers are spending. Over the past four and a half years, our businesses have now created nearly 10 million new jobs. So there are reasons to feel good about the direction we're headed. On ISIS and…

  • No Predicting This World Series

    Lincoln Mitchell
    21 Oct 2014 | 1:01 pm
    The World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants features two teams that were pretty good in the regular season but have been played either excellent (the Giants) or almost flawless (the Royals) baseball during the postseason. The two teams, neither of whom managed to win 90 games in the regular season, also have dramatically different recent histories. The Giants have won two of the last four World Series and will be representing their league for the fifth time in the last 25 years in the World Series. The Royals, for their part, have not appeared in the fall…
  • In Defense of This World Series

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Oct 2014 | 8:58 am
    In recent days there have been a number of articles asserting that the 2014 postseason is either boring or not lucrative for MLB because of the absence of any teams with a national following, like the New York Yankees or the Boston Red Sox. Leaving aside the question of why an ordinary baseball fan should care whether or not ratings are up for the World Series, these assertions, at least with regards to the teams and the game on the field, are inaccurate. Clearly baseball isn't for everybody. Some people did not grow up with the game and have never fully learned the beauty and nuance of…

    Lincoln Mitchell
    8 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Over the course of the 162 game baseball season of 2014, four teams won 94 or more games. Today as four teams remain in baseball's postseason tournament, only one of those teams is still playing. The Washington Nationals led the NL with 96 wins; the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim led the AL with 98 wins, but neither team made it out of the first round of the playoffs. Both teams were defeated in the LDS by teams that did not muster even 90 wins. For some this reflects the excitement and dynamism of the postseason, but for others it is in indication that the postseason, as it is now structured,…

    1 Oct 2014 | 2:12 pm
    For baseball fans, the end of September and beginning of October are a fun time. Playoff baseball often consists of tense, high-stakes and exciting games featuring the baseball's best players. It is also a time of mind-numbing cliches, lazy analysis and in, much of the media, an understanding of baseball that too often seems frozen sometime around the last Kansas City Royals World Series victory. Before last night's Royals-A's games, the analysts on TBS promised a great pitching duel largely because the Royals were starting James Shields. Shields, who as I learned yesterday, is nicknamed "Big…

There has been some talk about this for months, but it has grown louder in recent days. Yesterday, The Washington Post described Mr. Romney's evolving potential candidacy as "The road from 'I'm not doing it again' to 'Circumstances can change' is paved with favorable polls, 2012 predictions that came true and public statements from supporters."

    Few things are better at getting the word out about a past injustice than a Hollywood movie and Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner and directed by Michael Cuesta does so with depth and drama. For the first time the true story about the courageous investigative journalist, Gary Webb, is being told in movie theaters across the country where people can draw their own conclusions unhindered by the noise and static of establishment naysayers in the corporate media. This powerful film uses an "entertainment" format to assess the compelling evidence that people tied to the Nicaraguan Contras,…

    When high school students in Jefferson County, Colorado walked out in protest against the right-wingers on the school board who purged their history curriculum of content they deemed "unpatriotic" they probably learned more in a week of direct action than they could learn in a year of going to class. Not content to write a letter of complaint, or sign a petition, or tap "Like" on a Facebook page - these young people hit the streets in the grand tradition of civil disobedience in America; the same tradition the Jefferson County school board seeks to airbrush out.

  • Ken Burns' 'The Roosevelts' Reveals Everything Wrong With Our Current Political Class

    Joseph A. Palermo
    21 Sep 2014 | 5:39 pm
    Ken Burns' seven-part PBS series on the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, is a remarkable achievement. Burns sheds a poignant new light on the personal and public lives of three monumental figures in 20th Century American history. And in doing so, he illustrates the relative rottenness of the hacks, partisans, and plutocrats who make up the political class that rules America today. By exploring the lives and times of TR, FDR, and ER Burns shows that in our not-so-distant past the governing institutions of this country were actually…

    Che Guevara famously called for "one, two, many Vietnams!" The idea was that constant warfare around the globe could at some point bleed dry the United States. Today, we hear similar calls for "one, two, many Iraqs!" Yet these noises aren't coming from a charismatic socialist revolutionary but from American foreign policy elites. Just over a year ago, President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry were trying their best to drum up support for cruise missile strikes against the Syrian government of Bashir al-Assad. When confronted with the fact that the vast majority of Americans…

    It's difficult to write about the racial and political implications of the killing in Ferguson, Missouri, of an unarmed African-American teenager, Michael Brown, at the hands of a white police officer without rehashing what has been said a million times. When the inevitable incidents of police brutality or racially-tinged violence crop up -- be it Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, or Michael Brown -- you can count on a few news cycles featuring hand-wringing analysis followed by calls to action that everybody knows will never be answered. The only reason why the Ferguson conflict…

    Can you think of a worse idea than evangelicals, who believe they are serving God by killing Muslims, fighting Muslims who think they are serving God by killing Christians? The US government should crack down as hard on both the evangelical freelance American mercenaries going to Iraq to fight ISIS and on American Muslims heading overseas to fight for ISIS. These people who want to fight in the name of Jesus or Allah are all a threat to us. On BBC Radio 4 (Newshour, October 20, 2014) a journalist on the news program interviewed an American evangelical ex-US soldier who was in Iraq…

Bach at the most coveted "two-performances-only" concert in town. No one could get tickets. I could because the lyric soprano Camilla Tilling is my friend. The night before I'd had a back stage pass and was the guest of the bass player. My ears are still ringing. Delta Spirit is a great band.

Nicht weniger als das wirft der gläubige Muslim Erhat Toka dem Comedy-Star vor. Für seine kritische Satire müsse sich Nuhr nun wegen "Beschimpfung von Bekenntnissen und Religionsgesellschaften”…

  • John A. Tures: Did Canada's Looser Gun Laws Contribute to the Parliament Hill Shooting?

    John A. Tures
    24 Oct 2014 | 3:58 am
    Twitter exploded with comments by people wondering how Michael Zehaf-Bibeau could get a gun in Canada. The myth is that private citizens can't own guns. While the country doesn't have something along the lines of a Second Amendment to the Constitution, citizens can own guns. That's because the Canadian system is more about licensing and registration than restriction. And even that's been watered down in the last few years.

    Richard Zombeck

    The average Joe doesn't have much of a voice these days in what lawmakers are deciding. We can't afford lobbyists to speak on our behalf. HBO, CBS, Showtime, Netflix, Amazon and the rest have more than enough money to lobby for Net Neutrality -- it ultimately affects their bottom line. As strange as this may seem, this could end up being a rare case of what passes for Capitalism in this country actually working for average people.

  • Sigmar Gabriel: How NSA Spying, Google and Chlorinated Chickens Are Pitting Germans Against Americans -- And What to Do About It

    Sigmar Gabriel
    24 Oct 2014 | 4:33 am
    The "Chlorhuhn" chicken symbolizes the fears triggered by a proposed free trade agreement. The fear is that foreign products will push out local goods, and that health standards will drop. We are also having an argument about the way the major Internet companies mine and use data -- with the danger that they will turn us into transparent human beings. But one thing we do agree on is that unrestricted monitoring of communications by secret services can destroy the Internet as a space of liberty. Google's Eric Schmidt rightly described this practice as "outrageous." Read more: Edward Snowden,…

France, under pressure from Germany and the European Union to meet the E.U.'s straightjacket requirement of deficits of no more than three percent of GDP (whether or not depression looms) informed the E.U. that they will not hit this target until 2017. The government of President Francois Hollande, under fire for failing to ignite a recovery, now plans economic stimulus measures -- and the target be damned. Under E.U.

    Foreign languages help free us from ethnocentrism, the delusion that we alone are the measure of all things human, and they connect us to a larger, saner, more humane world. Read more: Foreign Languages, Public Education, Foreign Policy, Education News

    My father's impassioned plea for military assistance from November 1956 is more relevant today than ever. As long as organized Kurdish resistance continues, we must make the demand for arms to the Kurds our insistent cry.

  • All About That Bass -- Or Is It?

    Shannon Cutts
    8 Oct 2014 | 12:47 pm
    From the time I was eight, all I wanted to do was write songs. I wrote and wrote and wrote. I wrote for years, dreaming of the day I would hear one of my songs being sung on the radio by a famous singer. As I got older I found out many other songwriters had the same dream, so I started singing my songs myself. I entered a few song contests -- one year I even won! That was the year I realized other people's opinions are just opinions -- nothing less, and certainly nothing more. That particular year, some people -- people who happened to be contest judges -- liked my song enough to declare it…
  • Take a 'Virtual Walk' for Eating Disorders Awareness Week

    Shannon Cutts
    5 Feb 2014 | 2:27 pm
    Long gone are the days of the "anonymous Internet" when folks surfed and shared about their deepest fears and struggles under the protective cover of pseudonyms. Today, building a social media presence equates to constructing a very public and powerful platform to do good, influence public opinion, promote personally significant causes, and, well, change the world. Or at least that is what our Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, and other social networks allegedly have the potential to do. I will confess I usually use my social networks to look at pictures of cute baby parrots…
  • Why I'm Glad I'm Not Famous Like Megan Fox and Jodie Foster

    4 Feb 2013 | 10:52 am
    I will admit it. I occasionally (always) struggle to comprehend the editorials in my TIME magazine subscriptions. Or at least I did struggle until I figured out a useful strategy to combat this. Now I just skip the editorials entirely and flip straight to the back to read Joel Stein's column, the 10-question celebrity profile featurette and of course The Culture section, which contains more celebrities and lots of colorful pictures. A recent edition of TIME's The Culture lampooned actress Megan Fox for her poor choice of analogies when answering one of the press' many endless questions about…
  • Lady Gaga, Naso-Gastric Tubes, and My Commitment

    Shannon Cutts
    30 Apr 2012 | 10:54 am
    I have tried so hard to keep quiet in the recent spate of news headlines targeting the use of feeding tubes for pre-wedding diets, Lady Gaga's controversial body image tweets, and other similar spring season "thin ideal" viral media frenzies. But I have watched these topics circulating and recirculating for a couple of very long weeks now, and the truth is, I just can't. I was trying to stay mum because my usual policy regarding discussion of such potentially triggering topics is that "less is more", and the last thing I want to have to bear responsibility for is putting a dangerous idea…
  • Our Mentors Are Where We Are

    Have you ever heard the phrase, "Wherever you go, there you are"? The same could be said for our mentors. This past week I spoke to a crowd of several hundred students at Truman State University. The topic? Body image and eating disorders. The truth, as I shared with the students, is that most of us simply don't have time to stop and analyze all of the messages that come at us each day. Most of us don't even have time to stop and notice that those messages are there. Yet they mentor us. They affect us. They sink into our awareness anyway -- whether we invited them to do so or not. And once…
