  • Family Of Jailed Washington Post Reporter Jason Rezaian Asks Iran To Release Him

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:24 am
    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The family of a Washington Post reporter jailed without charge in Iran since July is urging authorities in Tehran to release him, calling his incarceration a "farce." Correspondent Jason Rezaian's mother and brother released a statement on Thursday to mark his 100 days in jail. It says the Iranian government has failed to produce evidence of wrongdoing against the journalist. Mary Breme Rezaian and Ali Rezaian say his detention is "unwarranted" and that "it's time for Iran to concede Jason's innocence and release him." The 38-year-old Rezaian holds…

    As Election Day approaches, two reports show us exactly how corrupted our political system has become. Unless voters come out in force, it looks like corporate money is about to buy itself another house of Congress. The Wall Street Journal analyzed filings from the Federal Election Commission and concluded that In a significant shift, business groups gave more money to Republican candidates than to Democrats in seven of the most competitive Senate races in recent months, in some cases taking the unusual step of betting against sitting senators.

  • 'The Daily Show' Makes Anti-Immigration Look Absolutely Ridiculous

    Jon Stewart brought his "Daily Show" team to Texas this week, and sent correspondent Al Madrigal to speak with people on both sides of the immigration debate. One side didn't come out looking too good. Madrigal spoke with a group of women who explained their problems with Latinos in an uncomfortable level of detail. Then, Sheriff Richard K. Jones of Butler County, Ohio, told Madrigal how immigrants who enter the U.S. illegally are given free computers and healthcare along with car and house payments.

  • How To Back Hillary Into A Corner

    29 Oct 2014 | 9:57 pm
    One afternoon in late September, David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager and most trusted political aide, slipped into Hillary Clinton’s stately red-brick home on Whitehaven Street in Washington, D.C., to lay out his vision for her 2016 presidential campaign. The Clintons have always made a habit of courting their most talented tormenters, so it wasn’t surprising that she would call on the man who masterminded her 2008 defeat as she finds herself besieged by Republicans replaying Plouffe’s greatest hits.

    Conservative radio host Dennis Prager claimed during a Republican get-out-the-vote rally in Sarasota, Fla., on Tuesday that the number of sexual assaults on college campuses has been exaggerated to win votes. “It’s a gargantuan lie to get votes," Prager said. "It’s as big a lie as the culture of rape on your campuses. What nonsense. There is a culture of rape on campuses run by the feminist left?” Prager addressed about 700 people at the rally, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Prager claimed that Democrats had trivialized rape by defining it too broadly. The Department of…

  • Change Happens

    29 Oct 2014 | 7:35 pm
    You don't have to look far in medical and scientific research today to feel the shifting sands and see signs of change. At times it seems we are simultaneously tilling the soil with a set of old yet tried and true tools while making new ones. Each year, as my organization prepares to bring together leaders in medical research, we confront all of this change head on. As much as we all like to wring our hands and lament the challenges, the solutions are not always simple but are often elegant. We are supposed to embrace change and seek it out, but it can be a pain. What we have seen is that to…
  • Leave No Votes on the Table: Engaging Latinos in Georgia and Kansas

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:18 pm
    Lately, we've seen a number of reporters and political analysts exploring the role that Latino voters will play in the rapidly-approaching 2014 midterm elections. Many share the tone of a recent CBS News piece, "Do Latino voters matter in the midterm election?" in which Rebecca Kaplan wonders whether Hispanic voters have the numbers -- and the motivation -- to turn out and vote in a midterm election to sway several key races across the country. What Kaplan neglects to mention, in her otherwise balanced piece, is that several of these races are so close that even a small voting population can…
  • Senate Elections' Homestretch

    29 Oct 2014 | 4:45 pm
    We have now entered the homestretch of the 2014 midterm election season, with less than a week to go before Election Day. Many Senate races remain incredibly close, and Democrats got some welcome news this week from far up north. As always, I interpret these races individually without resorting to "probability modeling" the way some professional poll-watchers do, so I am not going to definitively state that one party or the other has anything like "a 52 percent chance of winning control." Instead, I take a close look at the most recent polling and then contemplate any other factors (which is…
  • Democratic Candidates Are Paying the Price for Meddling With Social Security

    29 Oct 2014 | 4:22 pm
    Some things in life are self-evident. Fire burns, supply side economics doesn't work, and no Democrat, ever, under any circumstances, no matter what, should even think about offering to cut one solitary cent from Social Security, through partial privatization or means testing or raising the retirement age. Why so many Democrats seem to have to relearn the latter lesson each and every election cycle, is really, truly, mind-boggling. Yes, I know Wall Street, in a way it once wasn't, has become an important source of funding for Democrats. But there are simply some obvious truths candidates (and…

    BATON ROUGE, La. -- Bill Cassidy, the Republican challenger to Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), suggested during a debate Wednesday that residents of a desperately poor Louisiana parish could retire early to enjoy their Social Security benefits, even if the eligibility age rises. Cassidy, a congressman leading Landrieu in polls ahead of a likely runoff election, was hammered during their final debate on the traditional Democratic issue of Social Security. In television ads and during debates, Landrieu has repeatedly cited Cassidy's vote to raise the Social Security benefit age to 70. At…

  • Fox News Host Catcalls Woman In Viral Video: 'Damn, Baby, You're A Piece Of Woman'

    29 Oct 2014 | 10:26 pm
    The hosts of "The Five" on Fox News have joined the debate on catcalling, and they've made it pretty clear that they're not only fans of the practice, they're also practitioners. Earlier this week, a video showing actress Shoshana B. Roberts getting 100 catcalls as she walked through New York City for a day went viral. The point of the video was to show what women go through, and how uncomfortable this form of verbal harassment can be. But the point was lost on "The Five" hosts. “She got 100 catcalls, let me add 101," said cohost Bob Beckel in video posted online by Mediaite and Media…

    Days after Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman told Fox News that global warming is a myth, the cable network has clarified its stance on the matter. In an official “position statement” on global warming issued Wednesday, the Weather Channel said that man-made climate change is real. “The climate of the earth is indeed warming, with an increase of approximately 1 - 1 1/2 degrees Fahrenheit in the past century,” the statement reads, adding that climate scientists “nearly unanimously” agree that “the majority of the warming” over the last hundred years has been the “result…

    In just 30 seconds, a new video powerfully states its case for changing the controversial nickname of the NFL's Washington Redskins -- and banning it from television and radio. The video, produced by Red Circle Agency in association with the National Coalition Against Racism in Sports and Media, takes aim at the different treatment that "redskin" receives relative to other racial and ethnic slurs. It begins with several people using various racial epithets to refer to themselves. Those offensive words are obscured by bleeps, whereas the final mention of "redskin" is heard clearly, just as it…

The State Press interviewed ASU student senator Isabelle Murray earlier this month about a bill she was working on that would prevent students from sporting blackface at university events. The bill was in response to a publicized incident involving "a student wearing blackface to a recent football game [that] outraged members of the Black and African…

The Wesleyan Media Project conducts quantitative and qualitative research to understand more fully the role of spending in races across the country. At its new website, AttackAds.Org, the group of faculty and student researchers puts it this way: "...a growing body of evidence suggests that ads work better if they are sponsored by unknown groups, which further encourages the growth…
  • For the Journalist, Objectivity Changes When Coverage Includes Dictionary-Defined Racial Slur

    29 Oct 2014 | 9:46 am
    In the last few years, a major debate has gripped the journalism industry -- a debate over fairness, advocacy and objectivity. Can fairness and advocacy exist in the same news pages? Can objectivity survive in an age of partisanship and bias? How can media organizations navigate the boundaries between opinion and news? These are difficult questions, especially in a 24-7 media environment that too often seems to reward the loudest and wealthiest, whether or not they happen to be honest or informed. Yet, there are some issues that do not fit so easily into a debate over objectivity and opinion…

    Three members of my family are living and working in Africa right now, and I am telling you that the current American obsession with isolation tents, protective gear, and quarantines is making me feel very strange. My folks are not in "Ebola countries" (two are in Ivory Coast, one in Rwanda) and they are not treating viral fevers (two promote economic stability, one trains local surgeons). But they, like thousands of other expats and service members, are there because they care deeply about people and peace, and they believe that hands and hearts working together across global boundaries can…

  • Oil - A Question of Economics

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:27 am
    The recent debate over falling oil prices has become an over simplified economic question of supply and demand, ignoring other interrelated economic theories. Despite the global recession and, oil demand has remained at 90-91 million barrels per day (mbd) over the past 5 years. However, due to the recession, Western nations have slowly reduced their demand. Meanwhile low growth, fuel efficiency, and demand in Asia has risen to compensate for this fall. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has reduced its growth forecasts for 2015 suggesting that demand may grow modestly by a 1 mbd to nearly…

Much of the shrimp sold in grocery stores and restaurants across the U.S. isn't exactly what it says on the package or the menu, a new survey claims. Using DNA testing, the marine conservation group Oceana sampled 143 shrimp products from U.S. stores and restaurants and found that as many as 30 percent misrepresented the crustaceans they contained. For example, the researchers found that some shrimp labeled as being caught from the Gulf of Mexico were actually whiteleg shrimp raised in farms. In other cases, one…
  • New gainful employment rule is weak, but predatory for-profit colleges remain on the ropes

    29 Oct 2014 | 9:01 pm
    The Obama Administration is releasing its "gainful employment" rule, aimed at curbing abuses by federally-funded career colleges, at 7 am Thursday.  I can't fully evaluate the rule without seeing its details. But I have obtained a press release and fact sheet provided by the Administration to the media and also spoken to Administration and other sources, and I have this to report: 1. The rule is far too weak to address the grave misconduct of predatory for-profit colleges.  The Administration missed an opportunity to issue a strong rule, to take strong executive action and provide real…
  • Finding, Winning, and Keeping New Customers

    Winning over new customers and ensuring that they keep doing business with your company are among the top priorities for small business owners. In a recent poll of 1,300 graduates of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program, the most common business challenge cited by participants entering the program was finding and keeping customers. Patricia G. Greene, professor of entrepreneurship at Babson College and the national academic director of the 10,000 Small Businesses program, and Enrique Torres, president of Excellent Fruit & Produce and a program graduate, shared their insights…
  • Mary Burke Says She Was Not Fired By Trek

    29 Oct 2014 | 7:16 pm
    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke and her brother on Wednesday rejected a claim by a former top Trek executive that she was fired from her job at the family company, calling it "character assassination" just days before an election where she's running close with GOP Gov. Scott Walker. "It's ridiculous," Burke said in a telephone interview of the claims she was fired. "It's completely false." Former Trek president Tom Albers told The Associated Press that Burke's role as head of Trek's overseas operations "just didn't work out. We were losing money." Albers…

  • Oil - A Question of Economics

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:27 am
    The recent debate over falling oil prices has become an over simplified economic question of supply and demand, ignoring other interrelated economic theories. Despite the global recession and, oil demand has remained at 90-91 million barrels per day (mbd) over the past 5 years. However, due to the recession, Western nations have slowly reduced their demand. Meanwhile low growth, fuel efficiency, and demand in Asia has risen to compensate for this fall. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has reduced its growth forecasts for 2015 suggesting that demand may grow modestly by a 1 mbd to nearly…

  • 5 Easy Tactics to Reduce Abandoned Carts During the Holidays

    29 Oct 2014 | 3:41 pm
    Just like death and taxes, nothing is as certain in e-commerce as abandoned carts. Various studies show that 45-70 percent of all shopping carts don't end in a purchase, which means that you and your online business are fully aware of the frustration that abandoned carts can bring. And with Volusion predicting 9 percent holiday growth for small- and medium-sized online businesses this year, every cart counts. Fortunately, there are some very common and easy-to-address themes that lead to abandoned carts. These include: shipping costs and issues, shoppers browsing products and comparing…
  • Grooming Great Employees: What a Service Dog Can Teach Us About Developing Talent

    29 Oct 2014 | 2:29 pm
    There are at least a dozen dogs in my advertising agency on any day of the week. They run down halls, chase balls, gnaw on toys, snooze during meetings, and are eager for quick walks when their human companions need a work break. Some months ago I noticed that Dreyfus, a Golden Labrador that has been with us since earlier this year, stood out from the canine pack in our Bluffton, S.C., office. Even though he was just 8 weeks old when a staffer brought him in, it was soon clear that Dreyfus was a little more mature than most of the pooches in residence at BFG. He reminded me of a talented…
  • I Never Got An MBA ... I Had Sex Instead

    29 Oct 2014 | 1:23 pm
    This is the unabashed truth. A boy named J was my first love. I honestly believe I loved him more than he loved me. And that's probably why he left me. But not before he cheated. It's a story from the past that still has relevance because if it wasn't for J taking my virginity I wouldn't be the business owner I am today. Not because it was good. It was like anyone's first time. The pain totally exceeds the pleasure, but you bury that sensation way down because deep inside your heart you believe a person who loves you back is showing you just how much in a beautiful physical expression. Sorry,…

  • Oregon Marijuana Legalization Gets Boost From Cops

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:51 pm
    A coalition of law enforcers has come out in support of marijuana legalization in Oregon, less than a week before voters will decide the issue at the polls. "Treating marijuana as a crime has failed," 30 former police officers, sheriffs, prosecutors and judges write in a letter released Wednesday by Yes on 91, the campaign supporting legalization in Oregon. "Arresting and citing thousands of people in Oregon and elsewhere for marijuana-related crimes is a distraction to law enforcement and a misuse of taxpayer resources. The time and money spent should go to make our communities safer. Police…
  • Poultry Processor Discouraged Injured Workers From Seeing Doctors, Feds Find

    WASHINGTON -- One of the nation's leading poultry processors exposed its line workers to painful musculoskeletal injuries and discouraged them from reporting those injuries to doctors, an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration found on Wednesday. Wayne Farms, which bills itself as the fifth-largest poultry producer in the U.S., was issued 11 safety citations for hazards allegedly found at its plant in Jack, Alabama, nine of which were deemed "serious." The proposed fines for the citations top $100,000, which may be low for other regulatory agencies, but is quite…

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Jon Stewart brought his "Daily Show" team to Texas this week, and sent correspondent Al Madrigal to speak with people on both sides of the immigration debate. One side didn't come out looking too good. Madrigal spoke with a group of women who explained their problems with Latinos in an uncomfortable level of detail. Then, Sheriff Richard K. Jones of Butler County, Ohio, told Madrigal how immigrants who enter the U.S. illegally are given free computers and healthcare along with car and house payments. Naturally, Madrigal went out looking for people who received these fictional benefits. He…

    30 Oct 2014 | 2:14 am
    Do you know people who take "Game Of Thrones" just a little too seriously? Well, if you've wondered how they plan to spend Halloween this year, this clip may have the answer. The piece was written by Luke Barnett, who also stars, and directed by Vincent Masciale -- the same duo who brought us last year's spoof of HBO's "The Newsroom." It also features Nadia Bjorlin of "Days of Our Lives" as the Queen Regent/Raggedy Ann. Check out this clip above... and then watch out for the Biebers.

  • Hal Sparks talks about the serious side of making sitcoms

    29 Oct 2014 | 8:03 pm
    Since he's a relatively youthful 45 year-old, it's genuinely hard to think of Hal Sparks as an elder statesman of broadcasting. But then again, given that Sparks booked his first professional TV hosting gig while still in high school (At 18 years of age, Hal was the host of Treasure Mall, that short-lived syndicated game show), he's already got over a quarter-of-a-century of in-front-of-the-camera time under his belt. "And I've been in this business long enough that I've seen people come up and then just go away. I've seen performers who were more successful than me, who had a leg up, had…

You know, that friend that calls and laments about everything that's wrong with their life, who only asks how your day is so they can tell you how terrible theirs was. Anyway, Lane ends the call in a huff at the sound of Pete eating potato chips because *sacrilege* how could he dare eat while on the phone?!? Lane and I could never be friends.

  • Citizenfour: The Spy Who Was Never Out in the Cold

    29 Oct 2014 | 3:19 pm
    Officers of the CIA's clandestine service are often warned: don't fall in love with your agents. This cautionary advice is meant to be interpreted literally and figuratively. In Laura Poitras' compelling, controversial, and ultimately contradictory new documentary Citizenfour, the filmmaker seems to have fallen in love with her "agent" -- in this case the movie's hero, or villain, depending upon how you look at it -- Edward Snowden. To be clear: contrary to popular jargon, a "CIA agent" is not the American employee of the Agency itself, but rather the recruited foreign human asset -- the…
  • Cosby Has No One to Blame But Cosby for His Sullied Image

    29 Oct 2014 | 2:20 pm
    For decades Bill Cosby has been enshrined as America's most treasured TV Dad, the quintessential symbol of all that is good and wholesome in family values conscious America. The adulation for Cosby is so colossal and enduring that he's been rewarded with yet another run at a TV series and a widely acclaimed biography. But what do we make of the other Cosby? The one who a 46-year-old artist now claims drugged and raped her when she was 17? She's just the latest to pile on Cosby as a serial sexual predator. Her tale of alleged Cosby abuse echoes in detail the sordid tales of druggings, rapes,…
  • I Went to the Appalachian Queer Film Festival

    29 Oct 2014 | 1:50 pm
    Photo credit: Valentina I. Valentini I wasn't nervous about going to rural West Virginia until people asked me if I was. "They do a lot of pills," my sister said. "They drink a lot," said someone else. "Watch out for weirdos," I was warned. I've lived in Los Angeles for the past five years, and they might as well have been talking about Hollywood Boulevard. Still, traveling to Lewisburg, a town of 3,800 in the Alleghany Mountains, for the Appalachian Queer Film Festival isn't exactly a typical day in West Virginia. Those words combined in the festival's title elicit a similar reaction every…

Halfway up the sidewalk, the "worst thing possible" happened: he tripped and fell. Although both bride and groom hit concrete, neither was seriously harmed. They both suffered just minor cuts, and Magdaleno was a only bit sore the next day, according to ABC News.

Payne is a San Francisco-based designer and full-blown visionary. Overseeing two fashion houses of her own creation -- Leathertongue and Devon Rose -- and balancing motherhood and newfound mainstream television fame, Emily is riding the Project Runway rollercoaster with a level of grace fans of the show have not seen before.
  • Here's Proof That Tween Girl Halloween Costumes Are Way Too Sexed-Up

    My daughter has officially entered the tween years -- and Halloween just got a hell of a lot more problematic. In years past, her wishes to dress as a witch or mermaid or princess were pretty easy to fulfill. We went online, found a suitable girls' costume that would be warm enough for a chilly night of trick-or-treating, and ordered it. This year, though, the game has changed. Big time. According to the costume manufacturers of America, once a girl child reaches double digits, it is officially time for the Halloween hoochification process to begin. Just like that, your daughter's leopard…

But that's not what former supermodel Carol Alt heard, she explained in a HuffPost Live interview on Wednesday. "I know Renee had an issue with her lids.

There's unrequited love, family drama, reunited friends and an adorable boy singing karaoke. In keeping with the way Coppola uses music in her films "The Bling Ring," "Lost In Translation" and "The Virgin Suicides," the soundtrack includes "I Got Stripes” by Johnny Cash, "I'm Not Ready for Love” by The Promise, “Cry” by Johnnie Ray and “Deep Down” performed by Hazel…

    Days after Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman told Fox News that global warming is a myth, the cable network has clarified its stance on the matter. In an official “position statement” on global warming issued Wednesday, the Weather Channel said that man-made climate change is real. “The climate of the earth is indeed warming, with an increase of approximately 1 - 1 1/2 degrees Fahrenheit in the past century,” the statement reads, adding that climate scientists “nearly unanimously” agree that “the majority of the warming” over the last hundred years has been the “result…
  • How Hawaii Residents Are Staying Positive Even As Lava Threatens Their Homes

    29 Oct 2014 | 4:17 pm
    PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) — Rain fell Wednesday on a red-hot river of lava as it threatened to consume its first home on its slow advance into a rural Hawaii town. A breakout of the lava flow was about 100 feet from a Pahoa residence — about the length of a basketball court, said Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira. The couple that lives in the home has left. Scientists from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory who are walking alongside the lava reported its leading edge was 240 yards from Pahoa Village Road, which goes through a commercial hub of the Big Island's sprawling and…
  • Puppy-proof Your Holiday Season: Tips for Training Your New Puppy

    'Tis the season for new puppies! Before you bring home a new puppy this holiday season, be sure you are prepared to properly train and care for your new little bundle of joy. To help you do so, I have put together some of the top obedience commands every puppy should know and how you can easily enforce them: 1. Make your training sessions short and sweet Puppies are bundles of energy and have a low level of concentration so keep training sessions short.

  • Reforming Fashion By Making It More Eco-Conscious

    29 Oct 2014 | 3:27 pm
    Are you one of those super environmental types who shops at Whole Foods and your local farmer's market, avoids GMOs and does your housekeeping only with eco-friendly soaps and detergents? I know a lot of people who fall into this category. But then when it comes to fashion, suddenly all their rules about purchasing products that are good for the earth fly away like a hat on a windy day. They're shopping at low-cost retailers like H&M or maybe paying attention to avoiding synthetic fabrics, but not really voting with their dollars in the way they do in every other domain of their lives. Well,…

    Tischman Pet Photography As we round the calendar into November there is one date that will refuse to go unnoticed: October 31. All spooks night, is an overwhelming splendor. Children of all ages -- even adults -- parade about in costume chatting with strangers like friends and approaching homes as though they had just visited yesterday. Humans get it. Dogs often don't. If your dog is known for extreme reactions, this night may prove an unnecessary stress for her. Halloween, after all, is not about dogs it's about candy -- most of your visitors will be surveying the goodies in your basket,…
  • Is Eco-Fashion Full of Scrap? Watch and Find Out

    This new video from Tonlé, an ethical fashion brand in Cambodia, highlights a big problem in our world.... excessive waste. Tonlé's campaign points out that every year 100 million pounds of textiles worldwide are thrown away, which equals the weight of 14 cruise ships. By finding a way to use those fabric scraps to create new products, Rachel Faller and her team at Tonlé are able to create jobs, make products that appeal to the ethical consumer, and make money.... all from scraps that mainstream factories were going to throw away. Another fashion brand that is designed to keep beautiful…

  • The Shrimp You Buy May Not Be What You Think It Is

    30 Oct 2014 | 12:05 am
    The next time you sit down for some shrimp scampi, beware of a bait-and-switch. Much of the shrimp sold in grocery stores and restaurants across the U.S. isn't exactly what it says on the package or the menu, a new survey claims. Using DNA testing, the marine conservation group Oceana sampled 143 shrimp products from U.S. stores and restaurants and found that as many as 30 percent misrepresented the crustaceans they contained. For example, the researchers found that some shrimp labeled as being caught from the Gulf of Mexico were actually whiteleg shrimp raised in farms. In other cases, one…

  • 2 Years After Sandy, U.S. Disaster Policy Is Still A Disaster

    29 Oct 2014 | 3:46 pm
    WASHINGTON –- Two years ago, Superstorm Sandy devastated the northeastern United States, killing more than 70 people, causing $60 billion in damage and exposing major gaps in federal disaster preparedness and response. But there has been little movement in Congress to change policies to prepare the country for future disasters. One thing Congress did was approve billions in aid for storm-struck areas -- but not until nearly three months after Sandy, on Jan. 28, 2013. And that package has been criticized in some corners for being both too slow and for including too few directives on…

    Is Ebola really that festive of a topic? Plenty of people seem to think so. But those strapping on their fake hazmat suits in the name of Halloween cheer have been met with heavy criticism claiming the costumes trivialize the dire Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Now, medical professionals are turning the controversial holiday get-up into positive action against the disease. Doctors of the World, a humanitarian organization that provides medical care to vulnerable populations around the world, launched a campaign, More Than a Costume, to encourage those celebrating Halloween to purchase actual…

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:26 pm
    Tensions surrounding a four-week teachers strike in an Illinois school district escalated this week, after a school board member told community members to “sit down and shut up.” A packed crowd at the Waukegan High School auditorium for a school board meeting Tuesday night grew agitated after board members announced they would allow only 45 minutes for public comment, according to video. In response to jeers, school board member Victoria Torres leapt off the stage and into the crowd, where she scolded teachers and parents. "Alright, let's go! I'm a parent too! Yeah, sit down and shut up.

In his four-count lawsuit filed in Cook County (Illinois) Circuit Court, philosophy professor Peter Ludlow alleges defamation, false light invasion of privacy, intentional interference with employment contract and intentional interference with prospective employment, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Ludlow's suit seeks more than $120,000 in damages. The lawsuit stems from the student's claim that…

    A Chicago man claims he was simply walking down the street on his way home last Friday night when two police officers pulled up and told him to "come here." When 29-year-old LeRoy Hubbard III ignored them, the officers followed him to his family's home and stormed inside to arrest him in a dramatic scene captured on an iPad by Hubbard's 14-year-old niece. NBC Chicago reported on the incident and featured the video footage (above) on Tuesday. A police spokesman told The Huffington Post that Hubbard was charged with misdemeanor counts of battery and resisting or obstructing a peace officer, as…

Carrying the Weight Together, a group of college students and activists working to support survivors of sexual and domestic violence, organized a National Day of Action. The group was inspired by Sulkowicz's senior thesis project, "Carry That Weight," in which she is hefting her mattress around campus until the student she says raped her is expelled or leaves.

    It barely made headlines earlier this month. A man with an assault rifle fired at a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Blue Line train around noon on a weekday in Chicago's busy downtown. Police arrested Lorenzo Jones, 25, preventing what might have become Chicago's own Long Island Rail Road Massacre (in which 6 were killed and 19 wounded in 1993). Jones had an extensive arrest record but also a valid Illinois Firearm Owner's Identification Card (FOID) said police. He had carried 60 rounds of ammunition. A chilling Chicago Police Department report in May disclosed that almost 60 percent of crime…
  • Where Character Counts, Win With Illinois Gov. Patrick Quinn

Pat Quinn was the guy attending classes in shirt and tie while the rest of us were wearing jeans because he always had somewhere to go when class ended. Always working. Always in motion. "Does this guy ever sleep?," many of us wondered. While Wisconsin's Whitford, as in Bradley, played the walk-and-talk guy Josh in NBC's The West Wing, Quinn is the walk-and-talk guy in real life. Even in law school, Pat Quinn was concerned about those "living from paycheck to paycheck." Families who can't afford to miss a paycheck to make the…

    A word of advice for anyone who dreads being stuck in the purgatory of an airport terminal, gazing wistfully at the departures screen: Avoid Chicago. We analyzed data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics for 29 major U.S. airports to highlight which have experienced the least and most delayed departures over a 12-month period (July 2013 to June 2014). And both of the Windy City's major hubs are among the worst offenders. At Chicago's Midway International Airport, one in three planes left behind schedule, earning it the title of tardiest airport -- for a second year in a row. Nearby…

The Quinn camp continues to reveal bad business deals, overseas bank accounts, and untimely deaths at some of Rauner's nursing homes. This is bad business on both ends because the people need a leader with a vision and not a leader that…

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:24 am
    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The family of a Washington Post reporter jailed without charge in Iran since July is urging authorities in Tehran to release him, calling his incarceration a "farce." Correspondent Jason Rezaian's mother and brother released a statement on Thursday to mark his 100 days in jail. It says the Iranian government has failed to produce evidence of wrongdoing against the journalist.

These days, Mr. Kizil's goals are more immediate: aiding embattled Kurdish fighters fending off attacks by Islamic State, the jihadist group that controls a swath of Syria and Iraq, in the Syrian-Turkish border town of Kobani. Mr. Kizil's Dalkurd sparked anger in the Swedish Football Federation (SFF), further fuelled debate within…

In course of the interaction we discovered that, over the years, popular opinion of the United Nations has been of an organization made for the elite first-world nations to discuss their selfish interest, rather than an organization for "We the peoples..." as the UN Charter says. However, all that is slowly changing. October 24th was United Nations Day and my guest, Mr Gyan, is saddled…

The process of electing a parliament and a president matters, not only because it keeps the democratic process alive, but also for the signals it sends the rest of the Arab world. Tunisia, the cradle of the revolution, keeps on setting the agenda. But the signals it sends are many and various, and the western audience listens only to what it wants to hear. To a jubilant French media, Nidaa Tounes' victory over Ennadha was the victory of laicite loosely translated as secularism or the separation of church and state over its polar opposite,…

Earlier this week, a video showing actress Shoshana B. Roberts getting 100 catcalls as she walked through New York City for a day went viral. The point of the video was to show what women go through, and how uncomfortable this form of verbal harassment can be. But the point was lost on "The Five" hosts. “She got 100 catcalls, let me add 101," said cohost Bob Beckel in video posted online by Mediaite and Media…

    29 Oct 2014 | 2:05 pm
    Tip #1: Stop cleaning immediately. This one should be obvious. After all, nothing says "haunted meth distribution center" more than a week's worth of crumbs and cat hair all over your floor. (If you have an incontinent baby or elderly parent, remove all diapers!) So put away the vacuum, put up your feet, and let the naturally woven cobwebs, ant colonies and your miserable, filthy squalor do the spooky decorating for you. Tip #2: Stop grooming immediately. For my money, there's nothing more frightening than a 40-year-old woman's face at 6 a.m. in the morning. (Of course, I'm just basing that…

    It's been satirized by "Portlandia," mocked by Jerry Seinfeld and Patton Oswalt, and deep down it's probably the bane of coffee shop owners nationwide. It's a syndrome not openly or often talked about in the backrooms of your local cafes. I'm talking about "FOS," or fake office syndrome. FOS is a serious condition that causes the customer to take a bunch of shit from home and set it up in a four-person booth while he or she spends the next four hours taking advantage of a coffee shop's free Internet. The culprit (savage) justifies this behavior by ordering the cheapest menu item and weaning…
  • The Lingering Ex: Social Media and Break-Ups

    29 Oct 2014 | 10:14 am
    Breaking up has always been hard to do and having a broken heart somehow unites generations; it's a timeless pain. What's changed the game, however, is the wrench throw of social media in the aftermath of a breakup. I envy my grandmother in the olden days, love sick after breaking up with "the man of her dreams," lying on a pink ruffled bed in dim light, weeping and reminiscing over a box of pictures and dried flowers, while Elvis love songs blare from the record player. She calls her BFF on the rotary dial telephone, to hear that a friend of a friend saw her ex, Bobby at the drive-in with…
  • I Hate Halloween

    29 Oct 2014 | 8:56 am
    I hate Halloween. Like most adults, I hate what the holiday has become, but I also hate what it's always been. I know it is terribly unpatriotic to confess that much. I'll celebrate Veteran's day twice to redeem myself. But Halloween is so terribly objectionable that one has to conclude the devil really exists. So take a bunch of people, a whole country actually. Old and young, poor and rich, of any race creed and religion. The good and the bad. The smart and the stupid. And for the occasion, make them all stupid! They all come together once every year to put on foolishly inappropriate…
  • Traditional Sitcoms Don't Work for Talented Comedians

    29 Oct 2014 | 8:30 am
    I finally got around to watching the first three episodes of John Mulaney's new show Mulaney on Fox. As an avid comedy lover and an unapologetic sitcom fangirl, I was excited to see how this old school format would play out with a modern narrative. I didn't read any reviews beforehand, but couldn't completely ignore the Seinfeld comparison chatter. As the first episode began, the dialogue sounded a little familiar. I quickly recognized that it was a joke from Mulaney's standup routine about deviously trying to procure Xanax from his doctor. When I began to guess the punchline of every joke…

  • 'The Daily Show' Makes Anti-Immigration Look Absolutely Ridiculous

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    Jon Stewart brought his "Daily Show" team to Texas this week, and sent correspondent Al Madrigal to speak with people on both sides of the immigration debate. One side didn't come out looking too good. Madrigal spoke with a group of women who explained their problems with Latinos in an uncomfortable level of detail. Then, Sheriff Richard K. Jones of Butler County, Ohio, told Madrigal how immigrants who enter the U.S. illegally are given free computers and healthcare along with car and house payments. Naturally, Madrigal went out looking for people who received these fictional benefits. He…
  • 'Game Of Thrones Halloween' Puts A Westeros Spin On Trick-Or-Treating

    30 Oct 2014 | 2:14 am
    Do you know people who take "Game Of Thrones" just a little too seriously? Well, if you've wondered how they plan to spend Halloween this year, this clip may have the answer. The piece was written by Luke Barnett, who also stars, and directed by Vincent Masciale -- the same duo who brought us last year's spoof of HBO's "The Newsroom." It also features Nadia Bjorlin of "Days of Our Lives" as the Queen Regent/Raggedy Ann. Check out this clip above... and then watch out for the Biebers.
  • This Is What 10 Hours Of Walking In NYC As A White Man Looks Like, According To Funny Or Die

    29 Oct 2014 | 10:53 pm
    What is it like to walk around New York City for several hours as a young white man? According to this Funny Or Die video, it involves a lot of high-fiving, football-tossing, Bud Light Limes and job/small business loan offers galore. “After a video of a woman experiencing over 100 instances of street harassment during a 10 hour period walking the streets of New York City went viral, Funny Or Die News decided to conduct an experiment to see what happens to a white man walking the streets of NYC,” the comedy channel said. Watch what they discovered in the video above. H/T: Reddit

You know, that friend that calls and laments about everything that's wrong with their life, who only asks how your day is so they can tell you how terrible theirs was.

  • Democratic Candidates Are Paying the Price for Meddling With Social Security

    Bob Cesca
    29 Oct 2014 | 4:22 pm
    Some things in life are self-evident. Fire burns, supply side economics doesn't work, and no Democrat, ever, under any circumstances, no matter what, should even think about offering to cut one solitary cent from Social Security, through partial privatization or means testing or raising the retirement age. Why so many Democrats seem to have to relearn the latter lesson each and every election cycle, is really, truly, mind-boggling. Yes, I know Wall Street, in a way it once wasn't, has become an important source of funding for Democrats. But there are simply some obvious truths candidates (and…

  • John Oliver and Bill O'Reilly: A Study in Two Very Different Views of Obama

    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
    23 Sep 2014 | 3:14 pm
    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…

  • 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…
  • Does the Better Team Win in Baseball's Postseason?

    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,…
  • Pedro Martinez Shows Solidarity With a Young Pitcher

    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…

    In recent days and weeks there has been renewed speculation that Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for president will again be a candidate in 2016. 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,…

    28 Sep 2014 | 7:26 pm
    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…

  • Evangelical American Extremists in the Middle East Are a Danger to Us All

    Frank Schaeffer
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:06 am
    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.

    The potential destruction of terrorism is infinitesimally smaller than the damage done to our rights by a disproportionate attempt to prevent it. Please. Please remember this. It's even more important now, when that fact is so easily forgotten in the wake of the attack on our Parliament and the tragic deaths of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. We cannot allow the extreme actions of a few to strip us of the freedoms those soldiers worked so hard to protect.

    A poll last year found that nearly half of American households could purchase an EV for their next car; it would be a great fit for their driving needs, and they would have a place to charge it with electricity.

    Richard Zombeck
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:37 pm
    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.

A la salida de una de las grabaciones, Julián fue abordado por un grupo de periodistas, entre ellos el reportero del "El Gordo y la Flaca", para saber cuál era su opinión sobre la renuncia de Fernández, y si creía que en verdad estaba enfermo como el cantante alegó en la conferencia de prensa.

Un jugador de fútbol brasileño asegura que un can que invadió la cancha y lo mordió cuando él lo cargó para retirarlo, le trajo suerte, según reportó ESPN. El sábado pasado Eduardo Mandai, conocido como Dudu y su equipo, el Sao Paulo-RS jugaban contra Farroupilha. El encuentro iba 2-1 cuando sucedió el incidente, pero Dudu logró el gol de la victoria (3-2) en el último minuto, escribió ESPN. Después del juego Dudu calificó el suceso en portugués como "una…

    Sigmar Gabriel

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.

    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…

    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.

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…

    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…

    Shannon Cutts
    24 Feb 2011 | 5:54 am
    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…
