    Human beings sometimes have a troubling inability to hold two thoughts in mind at the same time. This is true not only when the two thoughts contradict each other but even when they simply appear to be in conflict with each other but actually aren't. And nowhere is there a greater need for us to get past this tendency than when discussing the ongoing war on drugs and the growing movement for the decriminalization of marijuana. It should be possible to say both that: 1) The drug war is an all-out disaster that has inflicted an untold amount of unnecessary human suffering. Therefore, as a first…

  • Children at the Border Are Not a Crisis for Americans

    Politics - The Huffington Post
    29 Jul 2014 | 7:14 pm
    The unaccompanied children arriving on our Southwest border are not causing an immigration crisis for Americans. Politicians, as usual, are sensationalizing the facts for their own partisan agendas. More immigrant children are arriving but the crisis is for them, not the native born in the United States. The number of unaccompanied children under 12 caught crossing the border illegally has surged by 117 percent this fiscal year. That sounds like a big increase but it only amounts to an increase of around 4,000 children. If we count the absolute number of children, including teenagers,…

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- University of Texas System regents on Tuesday selected one of the top U.S. military special operations leaders as the lone finalist for the job of chancellor, overseeing the system's 15 campuses and $14 billion budget. Navy Adm. William McRaven, head of U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa, Florida, has been credited with spearheading the operation that led to the death of Osama bin Laden in a raid on his compound in Pakistan in 2011.

    This week provided some notable examples of Crime and Punishment in modern America. First, football star Ray Rice received a two-game suspension for knocking unconscious his then-fiancée in a hotel elevator. His coach promptly proclaimed Rice "a heck of a guy." Earlier in the week, Lane Johnson, another NFL player, was suspended four games for taking a performance enhancing drug -- a transgression apparently twice as bad, in the NFL's eyes, as beating up your soon-to-be-wife. In Arizona, the execution of murderer Joseph Wood went seriously awry, leaving him gasping for air for close to…
  • Here's What Happens When You Type 'Why Am' Into Google in New York

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

    19 Jul 2014 | 9:00 pm
    This week, President Obama's $3.7 billion request to deal with the border crisis stalled as lawmakers introduced a bill that purportedly aims to help young unaccompanied immigrants but actually just makes it easier to quickly deport them -- a measure Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, dismissed as "the deportation-only agenda dressed up in sheep's clothing." The crisis is certainly a chance to look in the mirror and decide what kind of nation we want to be: one that holds up "return to sender" signs and walks through towns with AR-15 rifles to protest the…
  • Lincoln, FDR, and the Power of the Well-Timed Vacation

    Arianna Huffington
    13 Jul 2014 | 6:30 pm
    It's the middle of summer, which means two things: all over the country people are going on vacation, and Washington, D.C. is a mess. Might part of the reason be that, while most people recognize the benefits of unplugging, recharging, and renewing in the summer, our politicians spend the season tethered to the same hamster wheel, including endless calls and events begging for money? The science is in on what most people already intuitively know -- we perform better, we think better, and we make better decisions when we're refreshed and well-rested. To cite just one example, a study published…

  • Protecting the Lasting Achievement of Medicaid

    29 Jul 2014 | 6:47 pm
    Forty-nine years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson ushered in a new American era, creating a social compact that would withstand generations when he signed two hallmark health care programs, Medicare and Medicaid, into law. On that day, Mr. Johnson reflected on the nation's duty to care for its citizens and the crippling consequences of having to go without basic health care: "Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, to thy needy, in thy land." Since then, Medicaid has quite literally served as the nation's lifeline for the poor and vulnerable, providing access to quality…

The Office of National Drug Control Policy staff, while acknowledging the criminal justice system needs reform, argues in a blog post published Monday night that a series of Times editorials that began Sunday "ignores the science" and "fails to address public health problems" associated with a possible increase in marijuana use.

    29 Jul 2014 | 4:52 pm
    According to the Brookings Institution there are some 47,000 unaccompanied children in the USA from Central America, almost all of whom arrived this year. There is no question that the numbers have overwhelmed an already out-of-date system and there is no question, or should not be any question, about our responsibility to care for these children while our legal process takes its course and they are either deported or granted asylum. But now Congress, which has been the most grid-locked Congress in history, is about to adjourn for the rest of the summer without taking the actions necessary to…

  • Climate Change Education Works for Students

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:09 pm
    While some members of Congress debate the scientific facts of climate change, students are weighing the evidence and deciding for themselves. One student in my district, Brandon Truong, a youth leader with the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE), questions why there is still so much public debate when the scientific evidence is so clear. "What makes me so different from the average person when it comes to climate change?" he asks. The answer: "Well, nothing -- really." Brandon grew up in Fremont, CA. He admits that he was, like a lot of his peers, unaware of many social issues that affected…

    You might have seen it Tuesday morning on The View: the hosts discussed a new TV ad Everytown for Gun Safety released a day before the U.S. Senate holds the first-ever hearing on guns and violence against women. The ad calls on members of Congress to support a bill to close a loophole in federal law that allows abusive dating partners and convicted stalkers legal access to guns. On the show, Lara Spencer called the ad "effective" and after a discussion the other three hosts concluded that women might be better served by keeping guns in their homes. As an advocate for evidence-based solutions…

    For the last four years, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) has championed the set of learning benchmarks known as the Common Core State Standards -- but a simmering mess of litigation in the state's court system shows that Jindal has moved as far away from his previous position as he can. Last week, a group of parents, teachers and charter school managers sued Jindal over his recent repudiation of the Common Core. Jindal's decision to cut ties with certain testing vendors who create Common Core materials has left some Louisiana schools lacking critical resources as the beginning of the academic…

The announcement was made by in Korean, Spanish and English by players Hyun-Jin Ryu, Yasiel Puig and Justin Turner on the Dodger Stadium video board in the second inning of Tuesday night's game against Atlanta.

The National Security Council, however, tweeted Tuesday: We have seen reports of an alleged POTUS-Netanyahu transcript; neither reports nor alleged transcript bear any resemblance to reality 1/2— @NSCPress…

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:26 pm
    NEW YORK -- Israel has opened up a new front in the Gaza media war by allowing foreign journalists into Hamas-built tunnels running under its border. The media tours have provided a new perspective on the three-week military conflict, while also drawing criticism that Israel may be exaggerating the threat to its citizens in order to justify its invasion. Over 1,100 Palestinians have died so far, with foreign journalists chronicling civilian casualties and the destruction of Gaza in real time over social media. Several commentators have recently suggested that Israel, which has lost over 50…

But what I think a woman brings to a marriage more than anything else, to a relationship, is her youth. Youth is a fragile and diminishing resource. So if a woman were to invest two years into one of these marriages and then…

    29 Jul 2014 | 1:43 pm
    The logic behind it seemed so impeccable: "If New York can manage six local TV stations, the idea that London cannot sustain one is bonkers". Thus, former British Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt launched a string of local TV stations for the UK. The most promising and most lucrative of those was the franchise for London that was picked up by billionaire Evgeny Lebedev, owner of the Independent and Evening Standard newspapers. And yet, now it seems that perhaps London cannot in fact sustain one single commercial local TV station. London Live, Evgeny Lebedev's newly launched local TV station for…

  • You Decide What Beauty Is: Pushing Past Media-Driven Aesthetics

    29 Jul 2014 | 9:59 am
    Many American popular culture icons have a standard look: skinny, yet perfectly curvy, fair skin and light eyes. Marilyn Monroe, Jean Harlow, Marlon Brando and Leonardo DiCaprio are all undeniably stunning and stylish in their own way, but for the longest time, their style of beauty is all that was considered to be beautiful by many in the United States and in the world. As a society, our perception of beauty can be traced back to the Europeans' "discovery" of United States. As many know, the Dutch and English, as well as other European countries, participated in the Atlantic Slave Trade and…

  • The Agility Factor

    29 Jul 2014 | 4:59 pm
    The Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band changed the way people think about music; it is regarded as one of the most pivotal music releases of all time. Pop star Phil Collins said that it opened a door and showed people a new room. But the door had already been opened for the Beatles. Paul McCartney said that the single biggest influence on Sergeant Pepper was the Beach Boy's Pet Sounds album. The Beatles' awe of Brian Wilson's creativity challenged them to match sounds from bass harmonicas, sitars, and French horns to create wholly new musical textures and songs. I've been…
  • Corporate Fraud of a Different Stripe

    29 Jul 2014 | 4:25 pm
    It's that time of year again. Corporate good-guy awards are handed out like candy by magazines with headlines screaming "Best Companies," for various groups - usually minorities and women. Public relations shops in the chosen companies are working overtime cranking out press releases touting their dedication to diversity, and how they value female employees equally with the men. Trouble is, the fancy words don't match reality. Too often their real purpose is to get the company on as many "best" lists as possible, and shower the magazines with advertising dollars as payment. A neat arrangement…

  • Top 10 YouTube Channels for Leaders

    29 Jul 2014 | 8:30 pm
    With over 6 billion hours of video and thousands of channels, YouTube has something for everyone -- even for those of us who want to become better leaders. Over the last year I've subscribed to a number of YouTube channels that have consistently helped me identify new trends, understand best practices, and spot high-impact opportunities. Here is a list of my favorites: 1. The Aspen Institute: Watch leaders from around the globe examine the concepts and issues that shape our lives and challenge our times. 2.

  • Free Books: Marketing Genius or Devaluation of Writers?

    29 Jul 2014 | 4:17 pm
    Heard at a recent garage sale: "I always take free stuff even when I'm not sure I want it. I mean, it's FREE; I can always throw it out!" Contemporary culture seems to have a conflicted relationship with free. People will hip-check each other to get to a neighborhood "free box" first, then get suspicious when eager salesmen dangle promotional freebies to close a sale. We all love a free meal but will still wonder what's wrong with business that the restaurant is offering it. We can rationalize downloading music without payment, yet barely blink when art is auctioned for millions on the basis…
  • It's Time to Quit

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:53 pm
    I know. Reading the title of this post makes you uncomfortable, right? It made me uncomfortable to write it. In the business world we are constantly told to keep going, keep pushing, don't quit. It's like a mantra now, "Never surrender, never give up!" And you know what? They're right... until they're wrong. Wait. What? I've been in the self-employed game and startup world my entire adult life. And unless I get an incredible offer from a company that I admire (you know who you are), I'll probably always work for myself. After all, I've gotten so used to checking that self-employed box when…

    CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — An Australian airline apologized on Wednesday for a warning a flight attendant gave passengers who might have been flying high that there were drug-sniffer dogs awaiting them at Sydney airport. Many of the 210 passengers aboard the Jetstar flight from Gold Coast city on Sunday night had attended the Splendour in the Grass weekend music festival at Byron Bay and were returning home.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is encouraging fellow Obamacare opponents to take their sentiments to the campaign trail. Cruz said Tuesday the upcoming midterm elections and the 2016 elections are important opportunities for Republican candidates to push key issues, according to CNN. He was speaking at a conference hosted by the Young American's Foundation. “I think those elections should be about many, many things,” Cruz said, citing job creation and economic growth. “But they should be about repealing every bloody word of Obamacare.” Cruz over the last year has relentlessly pursued…
  • Facial Features Are Key For First Impressions, Researchers Say

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:49 pm
    The eyes may be the window to the soul, but apparently the face is key for first impressions. In a new study, researchers in the United Kingdom investigated how facial features can impact first impressions. As it turns out, the presence of certain physical characteristics can enable scientists to predict what initial judgments will be drawn. "If people are forming these first impressions, just based on looking at somebody's face, what is it about the image of the face that's giving that impression -- can we measure it exactly?" lead researcher Dr. Tom Hartley, a neuroscientist at the…

    (Adds senator comment, details on fuel taxes) By David Lawder WASHINGTON, July 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate on Tuesday approved an $8.1 billion extension of federal funding for transportation projects through the end of 2014, setting up a clash with the House of Representatives just days ahead of cutbacks in money for road, bridge and transit construction. The Democratic-controlled Senate had been considering a House-passed measure for a longer-term extension through May 2015, but reduced the amount of money with the aim of forcing Congress to approve a long-term transport funding bill…

  • Nathan Fielder's 'Dumb Starbucks' Episode Finally Airs, And It's Genius

    29 Jul 2014 | 10:46 pm
    Comedian Nathan Fielder caused a venti-sized media firestorm earlier this year when he opened up a parody Starbucks for an episode of his Comedy Central show, and now we finally have the whole dumb story. The infamous "Dumb Starbucks" episode of "Nathan For You" premiered Tuesday night, and it was brilliant. It turns out Fielder originally planned on opening the parody coffee shop to help out a struggling business owner, but he quickly got swept up in success, perhaps forgetting why he began parodying mega-successful coffee chains in the first place. The truth behind Fielder's parody is…

Well, here's one that might be even lamer -- the supposed fight between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber that went viral Tuesday night. TMZ, which posted the video, says the "what's up bitch" you can (barely) hear at the beginning of the clip is Bieber yelling at Bloom, but that's about as exciting as it gets. Most of the footage shows guys standing around, with a little finger-pointing for good measure. The incident took place outside Cipriani…

Not because the Bachelorette (Andi Dorfman) got engaged to a guy (Josh "I Can't Put My Arms Down" Murray) after only knowing him for two and a half months and only going on, like, three dates -- max -- with him. Not even because she slept with both of the two finalists (Josh and Nick "My Neck Is Always Cold" Viall) a week before announcing which one she'd chosen. It was the most dramatic ever because somebody (Nick) admitted to said sex on live TV! Nick: Knowing how in love with you I was, if you weren't in love with me, I'm just…

I've never really watched it before and was intrigued after watching Don Jon, a film comparing the male fantasy of porn versus the female fantasy of chick flicks. After my research session, it is now extremely clear to me why a larger female demographic does not watch porn -- and it doesn't have anything to do with sex drive or any of those sexist assumptions. It is purely because porn, in the current state, is terrible! These were the thoughts and concerns I had while watching one episode in a massage…

    Thursday and Friday EPA will hold in this city the final in its series hearings on its proposed rule to clean up carbon pollution from coal fired power plants. There will be a lot of theater, and a lot of opposition as well as support. Some of the opposition comes from workers from coal mining communities or those with power plants fired with coal; their livelihoods are at risk from the changes sweeping the utility industry, including the declining dominance of coal. Others are ideologically motivated, clinging to the view that for society to limit pollution is merely another disguised form…

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:34 pm
    One evening about 20 months ago, my son, who is a young man and not quite flown the nest, came to me asking if he could get a dog. As we already had three cats living with us at the time and all belonging to my son, I said no. "But, Mom, I promise I will do everything," said my son to this most gullible of women. "You won't have to do a thing." After much brow beating I relented and said yes. It didn't take more than 24 hours for my son to come home with Wilbur, a little Dachshund puppy with floppy ears, a silky coat, one blue eye and one brown. He was adorable. We made a home for him in the…

    Pit Bull Week at The Huffington Post is an amazing campaign to educate the world about the wonderful group of dogs termed "pit bulls." Reading about hero dogs and examples of "rehabilitation gone right" will indeed help to show people that pit bulls can be wonderful dogs. However, there is a group of dogs not included -- the dogs, not just pit bulls, that even when raised properly can still have behavioral issues.

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:09 pm
    While some members of Congress debate the scientific facts of climate change, students are weighing the evidence and deciding for themselves. One student in my district, Brandon Truong, a youth leader with the Alliance for Climate Education (ACE), questions why there is still so much public debate when the scientific evidence is so clear. "What makes me so different from the average person when it comes to climate change?" he asks. The answer: "Well, nothing -- really." Brandon grew up in Fremont, CA. He admits that he was, like a lot of his peers, unaware of many social issues that affected…

  • Five Things to Remember about Obama's Clean Power Plant Rule

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:49 pm
    Thursday and Friday EPA will hold in this city the final in its series hearings on its proposed rule to clean up carbon pollution from coal fired power plants. There will be a lot of theater, and a lot of opposition as well as support. Some of the opposition comes from workers from coal mining communities or those with power plants fired with coal; their livelihoods are at risk from the changes sweeping the utility industry, including the declining dominance of coal. Others are ideologically motivated, clinging to the view that for society to limit pollution is merely another disguised form…

  • Wilbur

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:34 pm
    One evening about 20 months ago, my son, who is a young man and not quite flown the nest, came to me asking if he could get a dog. As we already had three cats living with us at the time and all belonging to my son, I said no. "But, Mom, I promise I will do everything," said my son to this most gullible of women. "You won't have to do a thing." After much brow beating I relented and said yes. It didn't take more than 24 hours for my son to come home with Wilbur, a little Dachshund puppy with floppy ears, a silky coat, one blue eye and one brown. He was adorable. We made a home for him in the…
  • What About the Not-So-Perfect Pit Bull?

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:19 pm
    Pit Bull Week at The Huffington Post is an amazing campaign to educate the world about the wonderful group of dogs termed "pit bulls." Reading about hero dogs and examples of "rehabilitation gone right" will indeed help to show people that pit bulls can be wonderful dogs. However, there is a group of dogs not included -- the dogs, not just pit bulls, that even when raised properly can still have behavioral issues. Memphis, a pit bull, came into my life just before Christmas 2012. He was 5-weeks-old and had just been rescued from certain death at a California shelter. His mother was not so…

  • PETA Will Help Detroiters Without Water, But It Wants Them To Go Meatless First

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:11 pm
    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, has reached out to aid needy Detroiters who had their water shut off due to outstanding payments. But one stipulation in the group's proposal to help has added another element of controversy to the already tumultuous situation. PETA wants beneficiaries to kick their meat-eating habits to the curb. The advocacy organization has offered to pay one month's water bill and provide a basket of vegan food for 10 Detroit residents who, in return, agree to go vegan for one month, CBS 62 News in Detroit reported. But not everyone is pleased. The…

    Chocolate. Whatever your preferred form or flavor is, the love of it is something that feels universal, shared between us. We come together over dinner for it, celebrate birthdays and holidays with it. The industry that produces chocolate crisscrosses the entire world. But for the cocoa bean farmers from M'batto, Ivory Coast, seen in the video above, that connection didn't come full circle until Selay Marius Kouassi, guest correspondent for Metropolis TV, visited and offered them a taste of their first chocolate bar. Ivory Coast, a small country on the west coast of Africa, is the world's…
  • In Push To Protect Big Coal, Alabama Officials Say New EPA Regulations Violate God's Will

    29 Jul 2014 | 1:32 pm
    Pushing back against new Environmental Protection Agency standards limiting carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, Alabama officials gathered Monday to argue that the new federal policy flouted the Almighty's will by regulating a God-given resource. “Who has the right to take what God's given a state?" Alabama Public Service Commission (PSC) member-elect Chip Beeker asked during a news conference held in the offices of the Alabama Coal Association on Monday, according to AL.com. By 2030, the Obama administration’s new rules would require Alabama to reduce carbon emissions from…

    29 Jul 2014 | 12:05 pm
    It's basically a proven FACT that every single dog on planet Earth is obsessed with slides. They are practically born knowing how to use them, and they all love the hell out of 'em. Well, all dogs in the history of time and space but one. The first doberman gets it, but the second doberman, well... just watch the video above to see. Clearly, someone forgot to sprinkle the magic "here's how to use a slide" dust on that guy. Womp womp.

  • Obama Won't Legalize Pot Just Because The New York Times Said He Should

    29 Jul 2014 | 5:09 pm
    The White House has responded to New York Times editorials this week supporting marijuana legalization, saying ending U.S. pot prohibition isn't the "silver bullet solution." The Office of National Drug Control Policy staff, while acknowledging the criminal justice system needs reform, argues in a blog post published Monday night that a series of Times editorials that began Sunday "ignores the science" and "fails to address public health problems" associated with a possible increase in marijuana use. "The New York Times editorial team failed to mention a cascade of public health problems…
  • Declining Diversity in Higher Education

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:25 pm
    The numbers say it all. Diversity is declining in higher education across the United States. I do not mean there are declining numbers of women. Nor do I mean there are declining numbers of African-Americans or Blacks, Asian-Americans or Hispanics. I also do not mean that there is a shift to a more homogenous age group attending college. As far as I can tell from various data sets, representational diversity is not declining, though access certainly remains a problem for higher education. What I mean is that the range of diversity of the higher education ecology is declining at the…

We all intrinsically know that food is memories - just think of your favorite childhood candy to let a rush of physical and mental sensations come running back - and this is why the audience was so swept away by the film during a private screening last week in Chicago.

  • This Is Your Brain on Legal Drugs: Let's End the Drug War With a Minimum of Casualties by Following the Science

    29 Jul 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Human beings sometimes have a troubling inability to hold two thoughts in mind at the same time. This is true not only when the two thoughts contradict each other but even when they simply appear to be in conflict with each other but actually aren't. And nowhere is there a greater need for us to get past this tendency than when discussing the ongoing war on drugs and the growing movement for the decriminalization of marijuana. It should be possible to say both that: 1) The drug war is an all-out disaster that has inflicted an untold amount of unnecessary human suffering. Therefore, as a first…
  • How Finding My Father's iPhone Helped Me Mourn His Death

    29 Jul 2014 | 6:33 am
    I recently flew down to the Virgin Islands to bury my father. As I was sifting through his very few belongings in the tiny room he had been inhabiting for the last 25 years, I found an old iPhone. It was like opening a treasure chest filled with digital artifacts -- emails, photos, apps, music. I had found a way to reconnect with the man I once knew as my father but who had become a stranger over time. My dad's death was sad for a number of reasons. Mostly, for me, because I had almost no contact with him for the last 25 years. When I was 12 years old, my dad was divorced and broke. He had…

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:21 pm
    (Reuters) - Militant fighters overran a Libyan special forces base in the eastern city of Benghazi on Tuesday after a battle involving rockets and warplanes that killed at least 30 people. A special forces officer said they had to abandon their main camp in the southeast of Benghazi after coming under sustained attack from a coalition of Islamist fighters and former rebel militias in the city. "We have withdrawn from the army base after heavy shelling," Saiqa Special Forces officer Fadel Al-Hassi told Reuters. A separate special forces spokesman confirmed the militants had taken over the camp…
  • Justin Bieber And Orlando Bloom Maybe, Possibly Just Had The Lamest Fight Ever

Well, here's one that might be even lamer -- the supposed fight between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber that went viral Tuesday night. TMZ, which posted the video, says the "what's up bitch" you can (barely) hear at the beginning of the clip is Bieber yelling at Bloom, but that's about as exciting as it gets. Most of the footage shows guys standing around, with a little finger-pointing for good measure. The incident took place outside Cipriani…

A statement from the Presidency said the incident occurred at a beach in the Ratoma neighborhood of the capital, Conakry. It noted some deaths and injuries but did not give a death toll. "While waiting for the results of an investigation, information from health and security authorities indicate deaths and several injuries,"…
  • Qatar Invests in Israeli Soccer Despite Gaza and War of Words With Jerusalem

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:32 pm
    Qatar is emerging for the second time in a decade as the only Arab state without a peace treaty and diplomatic relations to have invested in Israel. Qatar's latest investment in Israeli Palestinian soccer comes against a backdrop of a war of words between the two countries over the Gulf state's support for Hamas, the Islamist militia that controls the war-wracked Gaza Strip. Yet, Qatar's relationship with Hamas makes it alongside Turkey the only country that can talk directly to the group as part of international efforts to achieve a ceasefire in Gaza.

  • Mercurial Tango: Putin's Odd Courtship of Argentina

    29 Jul 2014 | 6:25 pm
    In light of the history, Argentina seems like the last country one would expect to embrace Russia and Vladimir Putin. Indeed, during the Cold War Buenos Aires was ruled by a military junta firmly allied to the U.S. In what came to be known as the "Dirty War," Argentine generals hunted down suspected left-wing political opponents, killing an estimated 10,000 to 30,000 people between 1976 and 1983. At the time, the military saw itself as a bastion against radicalism in Latin America and did its utmost to hunt down revolutionaries and many others deemed to be socially or politically undesirable.

    The citizens of Leipzig are very proud of the fact that the East Germany revolution of 1989 began in their city. Leipzig has two famous churches in the heart of its old quarter. Bach made St. Thomas Church famous for music when he was its choir director for 28 years in the first part of the 18th century. Nearby St. Nicholas Church, meanwhile, became the center of the protests in 1989 that eventually led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Communist regime. The Church in East Germany had been a relatively safe place for non-conformists from peace activists to punk rockers. "Back then,…

    Even in the age of rising humane consciousness and importance of being politically correct, real politics are stronger than anything, and they are lead by many interests. Some say liars, thieves, criminals and politicians have fewer scruples than the rest of us, and maybe they aren't very far off. Call it a professional skill, but it seems that even "good politicians" who want to do the right thing, won't necessarily do the right thing until they have to. Many interests stay hidden until outed, and somehow, it seems they always have to do with that dirty five letter word - money. Look at…

Originally from Argentina, Cohen is the head of the kibbutz's emergency response team and is among the 60 kibbutz members who have remained on the kibbutz despite the rocket fire and Hamas infiltrations into the region. The rest of the 300 kibbutz residents have temporarily left, seeking relief in central and northern Israel.

    Comedian Nathan Fielder caused a venti-sized media firestorm earlier this year when he opened up a parody Starbucks for an episode of his Comedy Central show, and now we finally have the whole dumb story. The infamous "Dumb Starbucks" episode of "Nathan For You" premiered Tuesday night, and it was brilliant. It turns out Fielder originally planned on opening the parody coffee shop to help out a struggling business owner, but he quickly got swept up in success, perhaps forgetting why he began parodying mega-successful coffee chains in the first place.

Yeah well, that happened for a reason. Oh, a bird had explosive diarrhea on your shoulder right before your meeting? Yep, there's a reason. A few months ago, I was doing what I normally do, stressing out because I didn't book another commercial and wondering whether I should create a dating profile or finish a can of Pringles. I skimmed through the latest comedy publication that just released the 999,000 best comedians in…

  • Nathan Fielder's 'Dumb Starbucks' Episode Finally Airs, And It's Genius

    29 Jul 2014 | 10:46 pm
    Comedian Nathan Fielder caused a venti-sized media firestorm earlier this year when he opened up a parody Starbucks for an episode of his Comedy Central show, and now we finally have the whole dumb story. The infamous "Dumb Starbucks" episode of "Nathan For You" premiered Tuesday night, and it was brilliant. It turns out Fielder originally planned on opening the parody coffee shop to help out a struggling business owner, but he quickly got swept up in success, perhaps forgetting why he began parodying mega-successful coffee chains in the first place. The truth behind Fielder's parody is…
  • ManServants For Hire Are Like Strippers, But So Much Better

    29 Jul 2014 | 3:04 pm
    Let's be real ladies: a greased up man shoving his banana-hammock-clad junk in your face is not the definition of a good time. Knowing that most women aren't as enthused with strippers as men are, one San Francisco based start-up decided to change the game and give women what they really want: Man servants. The company, appropriately called ManServants, states that their vision is "to empower women to make their own rules. Rules a ManServant may then follow." The idea is that instead of hiring creepy strippers for their bachelorette parties, women can hire gorgeous models to do the things…
  • Guy Eating Styrofoam Is Probably Not Eating What He Thinks He Is

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:52 pm
    No. Don't eat that, sir. Please. It's not a kebab, it's styrofoam. On some level, you have to realize that. And we can only hope that at some point very soon after this video was taken, you did. Also, to be honest, this video kind of makes styrofoam look good. Maybe it is good. Maybe just a little taste ... NO. Styrofoam eating is not the answer.

  • Guy Tries To Play It Cool When His Phone Rings On Live TV, Then Panics

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:40 pm
    Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease. And sometimes, when your cell phone rings on live TV, your attempts to silence it are worse than the ring itself. Like this guest on a Vietnamese TV show, for instance, whose phone rang in the middle of a segment last week. After initially playing it cool and casually trying to mute the electronic device, however, our friend panics. Judging by his response, he may have put the phone on silent -- permanently. h/t Kotaku
  • These Girls In A Country Song Aren't Going To Wait Quietly In Your Pickup Truck

    29 Jul 2014 | 2:34 pm
    "We used to get a little respect / Now we're lucky if we even get / To climb up in your truck, keep our mouth shut and ride along / And be the girl in a country song." There are still wide-brimmed hats and pickup trucks aplenty, but the country music video landscape changed with the rise of "bro-country" -- which is exactly what it sounds like. Videos for the growing sub-genre feature two things in particular: beer, lots of it, and the ogling of women in cut-off shorts and bikini tops. Newcomers to the scene Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye want you to know they aren't having any of it. Their single…

  • 30 Things Only Dog Owners Understand

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    15 Jul 2014 | 4:03 am
    As someone who's volunteered in animal rescue for over 10 years -- and has been a foster and adoptive parent to lots of dogs over the years -- I feel like I'm constantly reminded of how dogs bring alive the Third Metric values of well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving. They bring us joy. They keep us in the present moment. They make us laugh. They touch our hearts in the most unique way. Those of us who have canine members in our family experience an abundance of the unique ways that dogs have an impact on our daily lives. At a dog park, a fundraiser, an animal shelter or in line buying dog…
  • Reduce Stress and Really Thrive by Bringing Mindfulness to This

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    13 Jun 2014 | 5:33 am
    "A gentle tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it breaks the spirit." -- Proverbs 15:4 It is encouraging to see the practice of mindfulness penetrating the culture. It is a graceful antidote to the unconscious, knee-jerk reaction way of living. Our over-stimulated society has drawn us away from our inner life, and the principles of mindfulness are helping us to forge a way back. Mindfulness is the experience of being fully present, bringing your attention to the present moment. When I bring up the subject of mindfulness to my patients, I find that many of them associate the concept…
  • Apparently, You Can Teach an (17-Year) Old Dog New Tricks

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    17 Jan 2014 | 5:42 am
    One of the most common questions I receive from people who know that I volunteer at my local animal shelter is, "Don't you just want to take them all home?" Reasonable question. The answer is: I want to do as much as I can to help them get adopted, and we have a crew of rescues at home, so I just try to stay focused on helping the animals get adopted and rescued. In over a decade of volunteering, I've never taken a dog home that I met during my volunteer shift. Until one day... I showed up at the shelter on a Sunday afternoon, and one of the most dedicated volunteers ever was holding a little…
  • It's Time for Women to Pay More Attention to This Health Concern

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    27 Aug 2013 | 7:35 am
    If you ask an American woman to list her concerns about disease, breast cancer will almost invariably rank high. Breast cancer awareness in this country is an institution, serving as a banner for the largest series of 5K runs in the world (Race for the Cure) and claiming the month of October for fundraising against the disease across the country. During that month every year, pink ribbons adorn the lapels of politicians and are emblazoned on celebrity T-shirts, and even corporations not exactly associated with health such as Kentucky Fried Chicken line up to sponsor the cause. Many people…

  • PepsiCo's Female CEO Says You Can't Be A Good Mom and Leader -- You Can

    Bonnie Fuller
    8 Jul 2014 | 3:29 pm
    The renowned female CEO of PepsiCo, Indra Nooyi, admitted in an interview that she believes that career women can't be great moms as well. I couldn't disagree more -- here's why. There's no doubt that PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, 58, is an incredible role model for young women -- she combines a stellar career with a solid marriage and two daughters. But she made some very frank and surprising remarks about career and motherhood when she was interviewed at the Aspen Ideas Festival on June 30 by David Bradley, owner of the Atlantic Media Company. Indra confessed that even though she has…

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

Here's why the author of Hard Choices, should be our next president. 1. Hillary Rodham Clinton Would Be a Fabulous President BECAUSE She's a Woman You know that phrase, "When you're number two, you always try harder?" Well, sadly, it's still true that women are the second sex in this country. Women make up more of the overall population than men -- 161 million versus 156.1 million -- and received 25 percent more of the college degrees than men in…

    Why oh why do supposedly modern women get conned into sharing their husband with several other wives? There's no compelling reason why Brady Williams' five wives have given up the love of a monogamous soulmate in TLC's new show, 'My Five Wives.' Here's the deal. My Five Wives star, Brady Williams, claims that going public about his polygamous lifestyle with five wives is "liberating," and yeah, maybe sex with five wives is better than one. But marriage for his attractive harem seems anything but fun and freeing. 'My Fives Wives' Premiere Recap: Wives Are Sadder And Lonelier Than Kody Brown's…

    I know my opinion is not going to be popular, but here goes -- Sean and Elizabeth Canning are the adults and the parents in this relationship. They need to work harder than an 18-year-old to mend their family fences. Rachel Canning has been called a "spoiled brat" who's suffering from "affluenza" because she is suing her estranged parents for high school and college tuition and support. I agree that she may feel "entitled," but I also think it's ridiculous that her parents have allowed her to live at a friend's home for over four months without making serious efforts to repair their…

    It's becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of the far-right's bellicosity in the face of refugee children entering the United States. Not a day goes by without Sean Hannity, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Bill O'Reilly or various screeching mobs composed of townspeople from The Simpsons brandishing torches, pitchforks and AR-15s in reaction to the over-hyped immigration issue. Speaking of Gohmert, this week he suggested that President Obama is allowing women to be raped by "illegal aliens": And they've committed at least 7,695 sexual assaults. You want to talk…
  • The NRA's Most Ridiculous Video (So Far) Calls for Government Subsidized Free Ammunition

    Bob Cesca
    25 Jul 2014 | 1:32 pm
    The National Rifle Association (NRA) has been responsible for countless nonsensical, totally illogical and sadistically irrational pro-gun slogans. It's kind of what the NRA does. Its executive vice president and chief crackpot, Wayne LaPierre is a never-ending geyser of these easy-to-repeat yet easily debunkable slogans. So it came as no surprise when the NRA released a brand new YouTube video that literally makes no sense whatsoever -- on any level. In fact, it's so off-the-rails that it's difficult to imagine even the most loyal NRA automatons buying into what it says. Here's the video…

    Last week, we brought you the story of the latest unprecedented congressional Republican weapon against the White House: the frivolous lawsuit. Specifically, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is considering legal action to overturn the president's executive orders (EOs) in spite of the fact that every president since George Washington has used executive orders to enact policies and implement congressional legislation, among other things. Since then, there have been a lot of tweets, memes and online discussions about how President Obama has issued considerably fewer EOs than nearly every…

    On Monday, the Houston chapter of Open Carry Texas had originally planned an armed march into the Fifth Ward, a predominantly African-American community. The group canceled the event because, they say, one of the members was committed to a previously scheduled event elsewhere. Canceling the march was probably fortuitous because what could possibly have gone wrong? A gaggle of white, paleoconservative rednecks with military-style rifles strapped to their chests marching through an African-American neighborhood is never a recipe for harrowing consequences. But seriously, while they're not in…

Frankly, we hadn't heard of her until this past weekend when she delivered a rant about President Obama and the fiasco in Iraq. Based on the reactions online and in social media, the segment has elevated her within the hierarchy of sociopathic rogues, screechers and former morning…

  • Israel, Gaza, Hamas and Media Strategies

    24 Jul 2014 | 11:50 am
    As the war in Gaza continues, one of the interesting, important, but clearly secondary stories has been the efforts by both Israel and its opponents to influence public opinion through social and conventional media. Notably, by far the most important public with which both sides are concerns is the American public. The U.S. is one of the few countries where the public still has positive feelings for Israel. That support, however, is not as strong as it was even a few years ago. Despite the emphasis on social media with formal and informal volunteers from both sides Tweeting, posting links on…
  • Will the Giants Improve Their Bench?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    22 Jul 2014 | 12:40 pm
    After a charmed first half of the season, the San Francisco Giants stumbled badly from roughly June 9 until the All Star Break. They have played reasonably well since the All Star Break, winning three of four and are now back in first place in the NL West. However, the last few days have also brought some bad news to the Giants as star pitcher Matt Cain and first baseman Brandon Belt were placed on the disabled list. To replace Belt on the roster, the Giants brought up Adam Duvall a journeyman minor leaguer who made his big league debut only a few weeks ago at age 25, but was quickly sent…
  • Six Californias: Conservative Plan, Techie Self-Indulgence or Both?

    In November of 2016, voters in California will vote on whether or not to divide the state into six different states. If the Six Californias, as this proposal is being called, initiative passes, nothing will happen right away. Creating new states requires action by Congress and cannot simply be done by the people of a given state.The initiative is the brainchild of Tim Draper, a wealthy California venture capitalist. Without Draper's money, the proposal would not have received enough signatures to make it onto the ballot. Presumably, Draper will continue to support the initiative during the…
  • The World Cup and Baseball

    Lincoln Mitchell
    16 Jul 2014 | 10:46 am
    The World Cup is an important global event in which the US usually plays a very peripheral role. That was certainly the case this year as the US made it out of their group but lost in the Round of 16. The World Cup inevitably draws contrasts between soccer's global even universal popularity and the American people's stubborn preference for baseball. This is, of course, a false contrast as baseball is popular in much of East Asia, the Caribbean and increasingly in a few other countries besides the US. Soccer, while the world's most popular sport has failed to catch on in many parts of South…
  • How the Republicans Could -- But Won't -- Beat Hillary Clinton in 2016

    Lincoln Mitchell
    11 Jul 2014 | 11:42 am
    Hillary Clinton's increasingly likely candidacy for president in 2016 must be extremely frustrating for Republican strategists. Clinton is a strong candidate, but she is not invincible. If Clinton runs, she will face nominal opposition within her own party, but obviously a Republican will run against her. The most recent polls show her defeating any Republican challenger by between 7 to 9 points. What makes Clinton's candidacy frustrating for Republicans is that while the formulas for beating her are relatively straightforward, the party is unable to implement them. Much of Clinton's strength…

  • It Can Be Done: Negotiate an End to the Siege in Gaza

    Joseph A. Palermo
    25 Jul 2014 | 4:10 pm
    The gutless American political class has abdicated its responsibility for the actions of the Israel Defense Forces. Few people living in the Middle East or anywhere else make the distinction between the United States and Israel, nor should they with all those weapons stamped "made in the USA." It's supremely foolish to conclude that Israel can never negotiate with Hamas on lifting the siege of Gaza. The American rhetoric of spreading "freedom" has been a legitimizing argument dating back to the 1898 Spanish-American War when we were "liberating" the Cubans and Filipinos from the yoke of…

    It makes perfect sense that out of the horrors of the war in Iraq a resistance army would arise that is far more pernicious, ruthless, and fanatical than the original enemy the US sought to defeat. The level of sectarian violence Iraq has experienced from 2003 to the present is a direct consequence of the US invasion, which long ago showed the world how wrongheaded the decision to invade was. We've recently heard prattling in the mainstream media about how successful the 2007 "surge" had been in Iraq and how President Barack Obama somehow "failed" because he didn't follow the neocon…

    I thought Karl Rove's 2004 Swift Boating of John Kerry's Vietnam service record in the US Navy was pretty disgusting, but the recent smears against President Barack Obama for winning Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release have descended to a new low. Instead of rejoicing in the homecoming of an American soldier who spent five years as a captive of the Taliban, the Republican response has been one of contempt and condemnation. There'll be no welcome home festivities in Hailey, Idaho for the 28-year-old Bergdahl, not with the FBI confirming that his family has been receiving threats. Instead, he has…

    With the Federal Communications Commission's proposed rule changes that could sound the death knell for Net Neutrality, context matters. And the context within which citizens must operate who want to defend a free and open Internet is one of relentless corporate lobbying and political power. For years now the corporate Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have been pushing for a tiered system of Internet delivery. They want the FCC to allow them to construct "fast lanes" and "slow lanes" on the Internet. Such a system would enable ISP companies to create false scarcity, roadblocks, and…

    On November 5, 2008, the day after the country elected its first African-American president, an op-ed appeared in the Los Angeles Times written by the conservative black academic Shelby Steele titled "Obama's Post-Racial Promise." In it Steele asks: "Doesn't a black in the White House put the lie to both black inferiority and white racism? Doesn't it imply a 'post-racial' America?" Thus began a trope that has bounced around our political discourse ever since. Commentators and pundits and even the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court have assured us that with the passage of time since the…

It's a supreme sacrifice that would leave the U.S. Senate with the same workweek as many normal human Americans -- at least the ones who haven't been cowed by their employers into giving up their weekends, which is a new thing that some lawmakers want to help facilitate.

    Why does prayer feel both right and normal to me and crazy, too? The best I can do is offer this analogy. In the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, people receive a vision of a mountain to which they're being called. They don't know what they're seeing, let alone why. They don't believe in callings per se. They just have to go there. In the same way, I just have to pray. And while I know that soon my grandchildren will be asking me tough questions about whether any of this spiritual mumbo-jumbo is real, I'm like a pregnant crack addict passing my addiction to my unborn child.

That book became the bestselling CRAZY FOR GOD: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back. I'd been so out of touch with the evangelical world that I'd lost track of the players. Put it this way: I'd never heard of Rob Bell.

One thing they shouldn't do is act like all those who would visit misery upon them, not behave like those of lesser character, of lesser intellect, of lesser sense, to not regress into however justifiably violent a response to the unimaginably awful fate suffered by innocent children at the hands of animals.

    The world, it seems, is ugly. One could argue that it's always been; one could also argue that never more than in modern history has that ugliness been given such free rein, spurred perhaps by a detachment from responsibility for one's fellow, by the sheer effort selflessness seems to require; spurred perhaps by a culture's dependence on the physical rather than the spiritual, by the twice election of a black president, the living embodiment of the scary dark nights which haunt the white tribal imagination. Yes, the good vs. evil dynamic has been at play since God first created The Big Bang…

    While watching TV coverage of Sochi last week, I heard one of the commentators wonder how an Olympic athlete who wasn't competing in any other sport besides ice hockey could ever derive satisfaction. Why, she asked incredulously, participate in something that had no real commercial potential? Her partner in the exchange didn't dispute her assertion or even pause before accepting it outright, which pretty much implied that playing any sport which didn't result in a related career was a wasted one. That shocked me. Certainly there's a market out there for professional lugers or people who…

    It just might be that when the history of the current era is writ, the most interesting aspect will focus on how this country reached a point where it simultaneously rose to fulfill its highest democratic potential while exposing its basest and most destructive tendencies. The election of a black man to the land's highest office, indeed to perhaps the most powerful position in the world, has hastened a kind of cultural mitosis, a cleaving of the body politic of the United States, forcing people to one side or the other. Inasmuch as the two elections of Obama are examples of how far the nation…

    Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen made waves in her Congressional testimony last week when she argued that social media and biotech stocks were over-valued. She also said that the price of junk bonds was out of line with historic experience. By making these assertions in a highly visible public forum, Yellen was using the power of the Fed's megaphone to stem the growth of incipient bubbles. This is an approach that some of us have advocated for close to twenty years. Read more: Financial Crisis, Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, Wall Street, Housing Bubble, Janet Yellen, Business News

  • Unwetter in Deutschland: Sommergewitter bringen Sintflut-Regen - drei Tote

    30 Jul 2014 | 12:15 am
    Heftige Unwetter haben in Nordrhein-Westfalen und Baden-Württemberg drei Menschen das Leben gekostet. In Münster ertrank ein Mann in seinem vollgelaufenen Keller. Nahe der westfälischen Stadt kam ein Autofahrer bei Starkregen vermutlich von einer überfluteten Straße ab und starb. Die Unwetter wüteten am Montagabend und in der Nacht zu Dienstag auch wieder im Ruhrgebiet. In Baden-Württemberg lösten ebenfalls Gewitter Erdrutsche und Überflutungen aus. Ein Autofahrer starb bei einem Unfall auf regennasser Straße. Im Südwesten setzten sich Blitz und Donner fort: Der Deutsche…

  • Höhere Tariflöhne wären gerechtfertigt, sagt Bundesbank-Chef Weidmann

    29 Jul 2014 | 11:41 pm
    Die Bundesbank bleibt bei ihren Einschätzungen zu höheren Tarifgehältern in Deutschland. Nach Chefvolkswirt Jens Ulbrich und EZB-Vertretern hat nun auch Bundesbank-Chef Jens Weidmann den volkswirtschaftlichen Verteilungsspielraum auf rund 3 Prozent beziffert. Dies ergebe sich überschlagsmäßig aus mittelfristig knapp 2 Prozent Inflation und 1 Prozent Produktivitätswachstum, sagte er der "Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung" (Mittwoch). Es gebe in einer Reihe von Branchen und Regionen praktisch Vollbeschäftigung, und es häuften sich Meldungen über Arbeitskräftemangel, sagte Weidmann.

    As Wikileaks documents showed back in 2010, the U.S. has vamped up its assistance on anti-terrorism for the World Cup because it saw a right risk of danger -- and also a great business opportunity for its companies. However, opaqueness surrounds this support; the total investment of the U.S. embassy in the training was only revealed now -- U.S.$ 2,2 million over the past 2 years. The deal was never publicized in full, and many questions remain. The Ministry of Justice is yet to explain for instance, how many courses were funded by the U.S., and who were the trainers -- U.S. military?

Un N pour dire "Nasarah", c'est-à-dire Nazaréen (c'est ainsi que le Coran désigne les chrétiens). Lorsque les chrétiens de Mossoul se sont réveillés le lendemain, ils ont découvert qu'à côté de ce N avait été rajouté "Propriété de l'Etat islamique". L'impensable faisait son chemin. Méthodiquement. Puis, il y a eu l'ultimatum: le samedi 19 au midi, les chrétiens devaient avoir choisi entre…

    PEOPLE - Vous avez dit rupture? Pas Beyoncé. La star a posté le 29 juillet dernier une photo de Jay-Z et Blue Ivy sur son compte Instagram. Un jour après l'histoire de l'appartement que la chanteuse aurait l'intention d'acheter sans Jay-Z, et plus de deux mois après l'attaque de Solange sur Jay-Z dans l'ascenseur, Beyoncé voudrait-elle faire taire les rumeurs? La star a posté une photo de son époux tenant leur fille dans ses bras, commenté d'un "ma teinte favorite est le bleu JayZ". Queen B n'en est pas à son coup d'essai. Le 22 juillet dernier, elle avait publié sur son compte une…

    Terrance Oakey
    29 Jul 2014 | 6:22 am
    Liberals should also be wary since unions will quickly throw their money at another party if you dare step out of line, as happened in the 2012 Ontario by-election in Kitchener-Waterloo when unions spent over $1.5 million in ads in support of the NDP campaign following a government showdown with teachers' unions. That is perhaps the most disturbing element of this big money politics: it is hard to see it as anything other than buying influence.

    The latest Commonwealth Study ranked Canada's health care system a dismal second to last in a list of eleven major industrialized countries. It is true that Canada's health system is fragmented and uncoordinated. Too often people fall through the cracks and we are miserable at managing patients with multiple illnesses. And too often our system feels unresponsive to the concerns of patients and their families.

What kind of misandry is this? Sure the five dollar bill boasts our old pal Wilfred Laurier, and the ten dollar bill shows everyone's favourite confederation-loving racist Sir John A. Macdonald, and the fifty dollar bill has séance-holder and dog enthusiast William Lyon Mackenzie King and yeah, fine, the hundred dollar bill is devoted to Nova Scotia's good ole boy Sir Robert Borden, but I mean, come on.
