    This week began the way so many do: with more tragic gun violence, as three people were killed in two shootings at Jewish centers in the Kansas City area, part of the 86 killed by guns in the U.S. every day. "We are united in our condemnation of this heinous attack," said Attorney General Holder. "These acts cannot be ignored." And yet, one year ago this month, the Senate rejected even a modest background check bill, despite the support of 90 percent of Americans.

    Is the United States a strong nation? There's a notion that it is, of course -- based mainly on the disruptive philosophical underpinnings upon which this country was established. But these are all really the fumes of nostalgia. What else is there? Well, we have the best fleet of aerial drone death-dealers in the world (for now).

  • GOP Campaign Committee Has $31 Million To Help Hold On To The House

    20 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Republican campaign committee raised almost $10 million in March and has $31.2 million banked to defend the party's majority, according to financial reports filed Sunday. The National Republican Congressional Committee's $21.2 million fundraising haul in January, February and March gave the group its best first-quarter showing since 2003. It also puts the committee roughly $8 million ahead of its fundraising at this point in 2012. Still, the GOP committee faces a well-funded challenge from House Democrats, who amassed a $40 million fund. Those fundraising updates…

    We're coming up on one of my favorite times of the year: that time, just after spring breaks out but before summer begins, in which thousands of college graduates are released into the world. And as they go forth we give them advice, lots of advice. The advice varies, sometimes conflicts, but the general idea is: Here is what you need to know in order to succeed in the world. I've given a few of these speeches myself. Indeed, Thrive grew out of a commencement speech I gave last year at Smith College. This year my book tour is taking me to a lot of colleges, and my first piece of advice is to…

    This was a week of reshuffling and resetting. On Friday, President Obama announced the resignation of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Yes, the Obamacare signup system was initially botched, but Sebelius also presided over a historic expansion of medical coverage, with the number of uninsured Americans having dropped to 2008 levels. On Thursday, David Letterman further shook up late night TV by announcing his replacement would be Stephen Colbert. As brilliant as he's been as "Stephen Colbert," it'll be exciting to see the full Colbert in action. Meanwhile, the Heartbleed computer bug reminded…
  • Burnout: Time to Abandon a Very Costly Collective Delusion

    As I've been out on the road talking about Thrive, it's been inspiring meeting people and hearing their stories about how they're trying to navigate our culture of overwork and burnout. "I don't remember the last time I was not tired," one young woman told me after my conversation with Sheryl Sandberg at the San Francisco Symphony Hall. And many others -- men and women, young and old -- echo that same sentiment. Especially among the young ones, there is one question that has been coming up again and again, which is some variation of "hey, it's OK for you to say 'you don't need to burnout' now…

    This week reminded us once again of the costs of accepting lowered expectations as the new normal. On Wednesday, a 5-4 Supreme Court decision struck down overall limits on campaign donations, further ceding our political system to the highest bidder in the guise of "free speech." On the same day, Ft. Hood, Texas suffered its second mass shooting in five years, as a married father of four, in a fit of anger, killed four people, including himself, and wounded 16 others. Senator Harry Reid introduced a background checks bill the next day, but it will likely suffer the same fate as the one that…

  • Four Years Later, BP Oil Spill Still Taking A Toll On Gulf Fisherman: 'We Haven't Started To Recover'

    The Huffington Post News Editors
    20 Apr 2014 | 10:23 am
    The BP oil spill, often called the worst man-made environmental disaster of our time, first began four years ago today. On April 20, 2010, BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded, causing more than 200 million gallons of oil to spew into the Gulf of Mexico. 11 workers on the rig died, and the resulting cleanup has already cost BP more than $26 billion.But for many fisherman along the Gulf, despite all the time and money spent to try and heal the region, lasting effects are still taking their toll. The Gulf Coast's oyster populations, home to about two-thirds of American supply, have…

    WASHINGTON -- Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad are following a formula in which the common denominator is to embarrass the United States, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said Sunday. He added that the "wisest thing" Assad did was use chemical weapons to slaughter 1,200 people, and predicted that Putin will only escalate military aggression in Ukraine if the U.S. doesn't take swift action."I think the [Obama] administration is basically saying to Russia, 'Look, don't do anything overt. Don't come across the border with 40,000 troops. Don't embarrass us in that…

While I love my job there are also many challenges. I've had to deal with attempted robberies, people throwing up in my cab, urinating in the cab, fighting in the backseat, inappropriate sexual behavior in the backseat, people who jump out and run, passengers who have tried to fight me, and almost anything else you can think of. Still, I love my job. What do I love? I love meeting new people every…
  • Vivek Wadhwa: The Rise of Big Data Brings Tremendous Possibilities and Frightening Perils

    Debates are raging about whether big data still holds the promise that was expected or whether it was just a big bust. The failure of the much-hyped Google Flu Trends to accurately predict peak flu levels since August 2011 has heightened the concerns. In my mind, there is no doubt that data analytics will one day help to improve health care and crime detection, design better products, and improve traffic patterns and agricultural yields. My concern is about how we will one day use all the data we are gathering -- and the skeletons it will uncover. Think about how DNA technology is being used…

I'm talking about throwing a massive metaphorical hand grenade into the entire system and starting over from scratch. We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing the system to have morphed into what it has. Why should you care about this? Well, because you're paying for it. Between states and the federal government the U.S. spends about $74 billion a year housing, feeding, providing health care (such as it is in…

    19 Apr 2014 | 12:31 pm
    The NSA's mass surveillance activities, including the collection of billions of U.S. cell phone records every day, have sparked vigorous debate about whether such surveillance is legal, consistent with democratic principles, or effective in catching the terrorists it ostensibly targets. One essential question has received little attention, however: Is amassing mountains of privacy-sensitive "metadata" technically necessary for effective, lawful electronic tracking and surveillance of legitimate targets? The answer is emphatically no. Well understood cryptographic techniques can enable lawful…

    DENVER (AP) -- Once the province of activists and stoners, the traditional pot holiday of April 20 has gone mainstream in the first state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana. Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater -- acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dogg -- to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to…

    By Keith Coffman DENVER, April 20 (Reuters) - Thousands of marijuana enthusiasts gathered in Colorado and Washington state over the weekend for an annual celebration of cannabis culture with rallies, concerts and trade shows in the first two states to legalize recreational marijuana. Voters in the two Western states in 2012 approved the legalization of possession and use of weed by adults on private property, although public consumption is still illegal. In January the first retail pot shops opened in Colorado, and stores in Washington are set to follow suit later this year. In Denver's Civic…

    WASHINGTON -- Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) posed a question to his colleagues on Capitol Hill this Sunday: If lawmakers are willing to spend billions of dollars on war, why are they less willing to invest in the welfare of veterans when they come home? Walsh, an Iraq War veteran, appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" to discuss legislation he introduced last month called the Suicide Prevention Act for American Veterans. The bill would extend veteran eligibility for the Department of Veterans Affairs' health system to 15 years, as opposed to the current five-year window. It would also require…

    19 Apr 2014 | 9:49 pm
    When I was a law student at the University of Chicago in the late 1960s, I had the great privilege as having Philip Kurland as one of my constitutional law professors. Kurland was one of the most distinguished constitutional scholars of his generation. He was also, by the standards of the day, quite conservative, and often a sharp critic of the Warren Court. In 1970, Kurland published a much-heralded book, Politics, the Constitution and the Warren Court, in which he laid out his critique of the Supreme Court's work under the leadership of Earl Warren.

Murrah Federal Building, tearing away the lives of 168 Americans, including 19 small children in a day-care center. He was one of ours. Although many rushed to declare that the bombing bore all the hallmarks of an attack by foreign Muslim jihadists, they were quickly shown to be completely wrong. McVeigh was a U.S.-born white man, what the Klan of old liked to call a "100 percent American." For a moment, it…
  • Larry Flynt's Fights for Access Continue Today, More Than 30 Years After U.S. Invasion of Grenada

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:21 pm
    In July, Larry Flynt will toss an invitation-only birthday bash somewhere in the greater Los Angeles area to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his flagship adult publication, Hustler. And if it's anything like the party five years ago, which boasted a bevy of bare porn stars and a fittingly racy and risqué "Heaven and Hell" theme that engulfed an entire hanger at Santa Monica Airport, gaining access to the Flynt fete won't be easy. For now, however, the veteran publisher is busy fighting a far less festive access battle of his own some 1,800 miles away. This one's taking place in a staid…
  • Marathon Monday: Tragedy and T-Shirts One Year Later

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:58 pm
    I was on the treadmill when I saw the first segment last Sunday. ESPN was on in my apartment gym and I distracted myself from the clock with the weekend's Premier League highlights. 363 days later with eight more to go, the anchor introduced the first of an onslaught of Boston Marathon tributes that surfaced this week. The coverage was deferential, albeit typical -- panoramic shots of face-painted students cheering on the sidelines, spandex-decked runners crossing the finish line, and, then, of course, the two bombs exploding amongst the spectators. Those shots, the ones seared into the…
  • Why the Future of Media and Journalism Really Is Bright

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:52 pm
    It is typically this time of year that, through a mind-numbing parade of industry conferences, legacy media companies attempt to buffer another winter of discontent with hopeful messages about the future of the business amidst ongoing retrenchment. Last week, I attended two disparate conferences that shunned hype and hyperbole (and despair), and provided a decidedly forward-looking and practical perspective: America East, addressing media and technology strategies, and Journalism Interactive, an event attended mostly by journalism educators, focused on inspiring and preparing the next…

  • TNT Crew And Gregg Popovich Pay Tribute To Craig Sager (VIDEO)

    20 Apr 2014 | 12:27 pm
    The "NBA on TNT" crew opened its NBA playoffs coverage on Sunday with a fantastic tribute to sideline reporter Craig Sager, who is undergoing treatment for leukemia. In honor of Sager's famous and colorful wardrobe, hosts Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal all wore some colorful suits of their own. Just before all four were introduced like a starting lineup, the announcer referred to their suits as "special Craig Sager throwback uniforms." In front of a giant background made up of supersized Sager outfits, they huddled up and saluted their colleague. "Get well…
  • David Brooks Actually Talked About Obama's 'Manhood Problem In The Middle East'

    20 Apr 2014 | 11:27 am
    New York Times columnist David Brooks decided to go there on Sunday's "Meet the Press." Brooks suggested that President Barack Obama has a "manhood problem" when it comes to his foreign policy in the Middle East. Brooks made the comment during a roundtable discussion about Russia president Vladimir Putin's aggression toward Ukraine. NBC News' Chuck Todd said that Obama's response to the situation is critical as other countries are watching the situation closely. "Basically since Yalta we've had an assumption that borders are basically going to be borders, and once that comes into question, if…

    Glenn Greenwald told CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday that receiving the Pulitzer Prize for public service was "really gratifying." On Monday, Greenwald and other journalists at The Guardian and The Washington Post were awarded the Pulitzer for their reporting on the National Security Agency. The big question as the awards approached was whether the Pulitzer Prize committee would recognize their work, and they did just that. On Sunday's "Reliable Sources," Greenwald told Stelter that he was having lunch with his phone on the table when the announcement came, and described his reaction. "I think…
  • 4 French Journalists Home After Long Syrian Ordeal

    PARIS (AP) — Four French journalists kidnapped and held for 10 months in Syria returned home Sunday to joyful families, a presidential welcome and questions about how France managed to obtain their freedom from Islamic extremists. Edouard Elias, Didier Francois, Nicolas Henin and Pierre Torres were freed Saturday by their kidnappers at the Turkish border. They were captured in two separate incidents last June. Francois recounted details of the captivity on Europe 1 radio, saying there were periods of "total isolation," numerous transfers to new locations and, sometimes, chains to guard…

    NEW YORK (AP) — A veteran Fox executive who used her company email account to plan aid for loved ones of the missing Malaysian airplane's passengers has been fired. Darlene Tipton, who was vice president of standards and practices for the Fox Cable Networks Group, said Saturday she had wanted to arrange swift financial aid to families and other loved ones, sparing them lengthy court fights. She said she began by emailing Sarah Bajc, an American whose boyfriend, Philip Wood, was a passenger on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and who has made frequent TV appearances since the plane's March 8…

  • How to Find Your Business Leadership Blind Spots

    20 Apr 2014 | 10:34 am
    Every business leader has blind spots which limit their effectiveness and success, but due to ego, over-confidence, or deferential subordinates, many live totally in the dark. Some are smart and humble enough to assume that they don't know what they don't know, but lack an effective process for shining a light on their blind spots. Both are equally surprised by their every setback. I recently found some real insight on this subject in a new book by Robert Bruce Shaw, aptly named "Leadership Blindspots." Shaw specializes in organizational performance and has helped a wealth of business leaders…
  • Four Years Later, BP Oil Spill Still Taking A Toll On Gulf Fisherman: 'We Haven't Started To Recover'

    20 Apr 2014 | 10:23 am
    The BP oil spill, often called the worst man-made environmental disaster of our time, first began four years ago today. On April 20, 2010, BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded, causing more than 200 million gallons of oil to spew into the Gulf of Mexico. 11 workers on the rig died, and the resulting cleanup has already cost BP more than $26 billion. But for many fisherman along the Gulf, despite all the time and money spent to try and heal the region, lasting effects are still taking their toll. The Gulf Coast's oyster populations, home to about two-thirds of American supply,…
  • General Mills Reverses Controversial Lawsuit Policy

    General Mills has reversed a new policy that sparked outrage among consumers. General Mills last week revealed a new rule that prevented people from joining class action lawsuits if they "joined [its] online communities." Such actions might include entering a General Mills-sponsored contest, subscribing to newsletters or liking the company on Facebook. Under the new terms, those who violated the rule would be limited to arbitration or informal negotiations as a means of conflict resolution. But in a blogpost on its corporate website on Saturday, General Mills said it was changing back to its…
  • Scalia Suggests Students 'Revolt' If Taxes Get Too High

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia told law students that they should consider a "revolt" if taxes become too high. While speaking last week at the University of Tennessee's College of Law, Scalia was asked by a law student whether he believes the income tax is constitutional. According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, Scalia told the student that the government does have a constitutional right to tax income. “But if [it] reaches [a] certain point, perhaps you should revolt," Scalia added. As the News Sentinel reports, Scalia's talk covered a range of topics, including his decision to side…
  • 10 Animals Who Are Still Hurting From The BP Oil Spill

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:12 am
    It's been four years since BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 workers and sending more than 200 million gallons of crude oil gushing into the water. The public outrage has largely died down, as have the EPA restrictions on federal contracts for BP. But the devastating effects on the area's wildlife persist. Oil is still washing up on the Louisiana shores, and severe damages to the ecosystem are still observable miles away from the Macondo well. The long-term impact of oil spills, unfortunately, reflects a sobering reality that we can expect to see for…

  • Unemployed For The Long-Term: It Doesn't Seem To Get Any Better

    20 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    He remembers the exact date -- November 30, 2008. That is when Hue Galloway of New Britain, Connecticut was laid off with just a week's notice from his job repairing printers and computers throughout the state. His annual evaluations, he said, had been good -- 30 years of experience and "never a bad review," but that didn't keep him from being let go without any real explanation. He lived on unemployment insurance until that ran out, and he had some savings, but he eventually declared bankruptcy. Like so many older workers who lost their jobs during the Great Recession, Mr. Galloway hit the…
  • Change Management: 4 Factors That Distinguish Successes From Failures

    19 Apr 2014 | 4:55 pm
    By Judith E. Glaser Many MANAGEMENT GURUS, ACADEMICS and CEOs are writing on change, yet there is a difference between theory and actual change. If you are entrusted to make change happen, run a division, have a strategic HR role or are in the C-suite, think about what it takes to facilitate change. When successful change occurs, employees feel like authors not objects of change. They feel fully invested, accountable and energetic about the future, regardless of challenges. Using Conversational Intelligence™, I've worked in change and transformation initiatives for over 20 years, since the…

While I love my job there are also many challenges. I've had to deal with attempted robberies, people throwing up in my cab, urinating in the cab, fighting in the backseat, inappropriate sexual behavior in the backseat, people who jump out and run, passengers who have tried to fight me, and almost anything else you can think of. Still, I love my job. What do I love? I love meeting new people every…
  • The Rise of Big Data Brings Tremendous Possibilities and Frightening Perils

    19 Apr 2014 | 1:25 pm
    Debates are raging about whether big data still holds the promise that was expected or whether it was just a big bust. The failure of the much-hyped Google Flu Trends to accurately predict peak flu levels since August 2011 has heightened the concerns. In my mind, there is no doubt that data analytics will one day help to improve health care and crime detection, design better products, and improve traffic patterns and agricultural yields. My concern is about how we will one day use all the data we are gathering -- and the skeletons it will uncover. Think about how DNA technology is being used…

Well, it wasn't anything like that last Saturday as I made my way through the throngs at Coachella -- where my 16-year-old was completely age-appropriate and I was, well... definitely not.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Captain America continues to vanquish box office foes, triumphing in ticket sales for the third consecutive week and dominating over megastar Johnny Depp's new movie. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" added another $26 million to its coffers, according to studio estimates Sunday, while Depp's sci-fi thriller, "Transcendence," opened in fourth place with $11 million. Directed by longtime Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister, the Warner Bros. film is Depp's third consecutive box office disappointment. He played Tonto in last summer's "The Lone Ranger" — one…

    Regardless of the depths of one's personal investment in the current crop of superhero movies, it's hard to deny the level of ambition put forth by Marvel in the curating of their ever-developing cinematic universe. With a brilliantly orchestrated series of films that led up to last summer's crossover blockbuster The Avengers, and a subsequent slew of motion picture and television endeavors that followed, the scope of Marvel's franchised fandom has never quite been attempted in cinema history. Furthermore, by recruiting celebrated genre filmmakers and writers such as Joss Whedon, James Gunn…

    When Hollywood decided to make a movie of Todd Burpo's international bestseller, Heaven Is For Real, they could have really messed it up. They could have made it too saccharine; they could have made it too religious; they could have made it too far out there for anyone to want to understand. But they didn't. They gave it to Randall "Braveheart" Wallace to direct and he made a movie that everyone will want to see it and most will appreciate. To do this Wallace made a movie that is more about how people react to Todd Burpo's son Colton than about his experience. In the film Todd (Greg Kinnear),…

  • Pursuit for the Suit: Checking "Self-Conscious" at the Door

    18 Apr 2014 | 10:33 am
    Originally published on Unwritten. Take a seat, a deep breath and maybe a shot of hard liquor: Bathing suit season is just around the corner. I know, the idea of cramming our pasty (is that just me?), winter-loving chub (again, just me?) into tiny pieces of nylon can be an intimidating one, but it doesn't have to be. If there's one valuable lesson that HBO has taught us this season on Girls (basically the reality of every post-grad, twenty-something woman lost in translation), it's to embrace our bodies and our youth. Hats off to Miss Dunham on that one. Curves are not a bad thing, and…

  • Stars Shake Things Up With Their Signature Looks On This Week's Best & Worst Beauty List

    20 Apr 2014 | 6:37 am
    Last week, celebrities took bold risks with their hair and makeup. While some stars like Kate Walsh and Jennifer Garner blew our minds, others just left us scratching our heads. (Yeah, we're still not sure what Katy Perry was thinking when she dyed her hair green.) But it looks like more stars are taking Perry's lead and switching things up in the beauty department. Brandy ditched her signature box braids for an Afro hairstyle. Meanwhile, Shailene Woodley appears to be having some fun experimenting with wearing more makeup these days. And we've decided to give Leighton Meester a pass for her…

  • Four Years Later, BP Oil Spill Still Taking A Toll On Gulf Fisherman: 'We Haven't Started To Recover'

    20 Apr 2014 | 10:23 am
    The BP oil spill, often called the worst man-made environmental disaster of our time, first began four years ago today. On April 20, 2010, BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded, causing more than 200 million gallons of oil to spew into the Gulf of Mexico. 11 workers on the rig died, and the resulting cleanup has already cost BP more than $26 billion. But for many fisherman along the Gulf, despite all the time and money spent to try and heal the region, lasting effects are still taking their toll. The Gulf Coast's oyster populations, home to about two-thirds of American supply,…
  • The Value Of A Sherpa Life | Mountaineering | OutsideOnline.com

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:50 am
    On April 18, at about 6:30 a.m. local time, an avalanche swept down off the west shoulder of Everest and killed 16 climbers. To anybody who’s familiar with Everest climbing, it should come as no surprise that all of the men were Sherpa porters. Sherpas are Everest's workforce—the literal backbone of the climbing industry there. The men who were struck were either carrying 80-pound loads to Camps 1 and 2, or they were on their way back to Base Camp. Without the hard work of the Sherpa porters, it would be largely impossible for Americans and Europeans with slightly above-average…
  • Slow-Moving Landslide Devouring Part Of Wyoming Town

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:41 am
    JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — What's happening in this Wyoming resort town might be better described as a land creep than a landslide, but the lack of speed has not hindered the sheer power of the moving earth. Over the past two weeks, a piece of East Gros Ventre Butte has slowly collapsed toward the west side of Jackson — shearing one hillside home in half, threatening to devour several others and looming ever more ominously over a cluster of businesses below. No one can say precisely when the mountainside will cease its slow droop into Jackson or finally give way. But it appears increasingly…
  • This Paralyzed Pit Bull Brings A Message Of Perseverance To Patients

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:39 am
    Therapy dogs are a wonderful part of the healing process for many patients, but Elsa, the paralyzed pit bull, is more than just furry comfort for the patients she visits -- she is a lesson in perseverance. Elsa became paralyzed after a stroke, Global News reported. Now she and her owner, Kelly Dann of Vancouver, British Columbia, visit the GF Strong Rehabilitation Center once a week, where patients can spend time with the lovable pup who has been through the grueling process of rehabilitation therapy herself. In 2010, Elsa was rescued by the British Columbia SPCA, along with 26 other dogs,…
  • 10 Animals Who Are Still Hurting From The BP Oil Spill

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:12 am
    It's been four years since BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 workers and sending more than 200 million gallons of crude oil gushing into the water. The public outrage has largely died down, as have the EPA restrictions on federal contracts for BP. But the devastating effects on the area's wildlife persist. Oil is still washing up on the Louisiana shores, and severe damages to the ecosystem are still observable miles away from the Macondo well. The long-term impact of oil spills, unfortunately, reflects a sobering reality that we can expect to see for…

  • Keystone XL May Wait on Nebraska, but Climate Change Waits for No One

    18 Apr 2014 | 8:07 pm
    Graphic from Oil Change International The State Department is providing additional time for comments on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, extending the process, until more is known about the project’s route through Nebraska. A Nebraska court had invalidated the state route and it may be months before the court case concludes and a route is in place. While it makes sense to wait for a Nebraska route, one thing is certain: the impacts of climate change are not waiting. By the time the comment period on Keystone XL gets started again, we can expect to see climate chaos making an even…
  • The Great Portland Pee: The Psychological Power of Disgust That Discourages Water Recycling

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:43 pm
    If you're running a little short on potable water, you might want to take some empty jugs up to Portland, Oregon, where for the next few days they will be throwing away 38 million gallons of water... treated, drinkable water... because the other night a young guy was caught on security cameras peeing into an open air reservoir. Never mind that -- even if this kid had just had a whole six pack, the maximum amount of used beer he could have peed is 1/8 gallon. Into 38 million gallons, that means the level of 'contamination' is about three parts per BILLION. (Thanks to AP's Seth Borenstein for…
  • Earth Day 2014

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:41 pm
    I admit to having mixed feelings about Earth Day for the obvious reason that "saving the planet" is a 365-day, 24/7 job. But if we can get people to focus on the central idea it represents even for a few minutes, it's worth it, right? But what's begun to bother me big time is that we still frame this idea as if it's humans versus the planet, rather than focusing on the intricate interdependencies between humans and the Earth. Nowhere does this show up more than in conversations we have about cities. Framed by the higher benefit concepts of sustainability, resiliency and livability, we…
  • Riding Public Transit Best Way to Celebrate Earth Day

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:52 pm
    Earth Day is Tuesday, April 22, and like many Americans, you might be stumped about what more you can do to help the environment. You've recycled, installed energy-saving light bulbs and low-flow water fixtures, turned down your thermostat and even put extra insulation in your attic. What else can you do? You may have overlooked the most effective way to protect the earth and reduce global warming: taking the bus, subway or train instead of driving your car. That's why the Amalgamated Transit Union and Sierra Club have formed a new partnership to highlight the key role public transit plays in…
  • Four Years After the Blowout... Has Anything Changed?

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:22 pm
    Four years ago this Sunday night, BP's Mississippi Canyon Block 252 well blew out, killing 11 workers, destroying the Deepwater Horizon semi-submersible rig, and putting an estimated 5 million barrels of oil into the water. The Gulf continues to suffer the effects of oil that remains, and many shore-based businesses are still struggling to get back on their feet. At the same time, our rig count in the Gulf has returned to its pre-blowout level. Beyond the obvious effects of this massive oil spill, and the ongoing court battle between the government, plaintiffs, and BP, the question needs to…

  • The 11 Stupidest Arguments Against Legalizing Marijuana

    20 Apr 2014 | 6:43 am
    A version of this story was first published in February. Nearly 80 years ago, the feature film "Reefer Madness" hit theaters, projecting demonstrably false anti-marijuana propaganda all over the big screen. In today's era of legal medical and recreational cannabis, the tone of this movie is often mocked. But drug warriors are still employing many of the same hysterical arguments to prop up their campaign against weed. When it comes to public opinion, it's becoming clear that anti-pot crusaders are losing the battle. Recreational marijuana is for sale in Colorado, it’s coming to Washington…
  • 4/20 May Be Legal Federally Before The End Of The Decade

    20 Apr 2014 | 6:43 am
    A version of this story was first published earlier in April. Two states with legal recreational use. Twenty-one that allow medical use. Record-high support at the national level for more permissive policies. It seems fair to say that the United States' official stance on marijuana is shifting quickly. In fact, one congressman is predicting that U.S. pot prohibition will be a thing of the past relatively soon. Meaning, America may see it's first legal 4/20 before the end of the decade. "I think it’s game over in less than five years," Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) said during an interview…

    20 Apr 2014 | 6:39 am
    What a difference a year makes. From 4/20, 2013, to 4/20, 2014, marijuana has taken big steps out of the shadows of the black market and into the light of the mainstream -- from record high popular support and the first legal recreational sales, to an entire country legalizing marijuana. Here’s a look at the last 12 months of marijuana milestones: Colorado Sold Legal, Recreational Marijuana For The First Time Partygoers smoke marijuana, left, and cigarettes during a Prohibition-era themed New Year's Eve party celebrating the start of retail pot sales, at a bar in Denver.(AP Photo/Brennan…

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Marking Christianity's most hopeful day, Pope Francis made an Easter Sunday plea for peace and dialogue in Ukraine and Syria, for an end to terrorist attacks against Christians in Nigeria and for more attention to the hungry and neediest close to home. Well over 150,000 tourists — Romans and pilgrims, young and old — turned out for the Mass that Francis celebrated at an altar set up under a canopy on the steps of St. Peter's Basilica. So great were their numbers that they overflowed from sprawling St. Peter's Square, which was bedecked with row after row of potted…

  • 25 Best and Worst Illinois County February Unemployment Rates, Mapped Out

    17 Apr 2014 | 2:43 pm
    Illinois' unemployment rate in February was 8.7 percent, which was the second highest in the nation ahead of only Rhode Island. But when looking at the 102 counties in Illinois, only 18 counties actually had an unemployment rate lower than the state's rate of 8.7 percent. That means 84 counties had an unemployment rate of 8.7 or higher... and in some cases much higher. What gives? According to the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES), the 8.7 percent figure put out by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is a seasonally adjusted rate, taking in to account season jobs. For the Illinois…

I was prompted to see the musical for two reasons. I loved the film, starring a Vassar College classmate Meryl Streep, and I had just taken a class a few days earlier taught by the much heralded Robert McKee on the love story genre, i.e. how to write a love story screenplay. The class featured the film. The course with about a hundred students was at the French Institute at E. 60th between Park and Madison. So, it was a happy…

To relax my tension I read the latest issue of the magazine Coexistence, which just celebrated six years since its founding. I find in its pages an article by Miriam Celaya, who coincidentally addresses this "dangerous spiral" of blows,…

    Jihadists, often eager to exploit soccer for their ideological goals, have found a new way of employing the game for propaganda and recruitment purposes. A recent jihadist video suggested that an apparent Portuguese fighter in Syria was a former French international who had played for British premier league club Arsenal. The video exploited the physical likeness of a masked jihadist fighter believed to be Celso Rodrigues Da Costa, to that of French international Lassana Diarra. Voice analysis suggested however that the man brandishing an AK-47 weapon in the clip was Mr. Da Costa, a Portuguese…

It was the first time the body dealt with human rights abuses in North Korea rather than its nuclear ambitions. The informal…

    (Updates with safe landing, background) KUALA LUMPUR, April 21 (Reuters) - A Malaysia Airlines passenger plane with 166 people on board landed safely at Kuala Lumpur airport early on Monday after being forced to abandon a flight to Bangalore because of problems with its landing gear, the airline said. Defence Minister and Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said in a tweet: 'All landed safely - going there now!!" Malaysia Airlines had said earlier that the Boeing 737-800, carrying 159 passengers and seven crew, had suffered a malfunction of its right-hand landing gear upon takeoff,…
  • Glenn Greenwald Reacts To Pulitzer Prize

    Glenn Greenwald told CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday that receiving the Pulitzer Prize for public service was "really gratifying." On Monday, Greenwald and other journalists at The Guardian and The Washington Post were awarded the Pulitzer for their reporting on the National Security Agency. The big question as the awards approached was whether the Pulitzer Prize committee would recognize their work, and they did just that. On Sunday's "Reliable Sources," Greenwald told Stelter that he was having lunch with his phone on the table when the announcement came, and described his reaction. "I think…

    20 Apr 2014 | 10:35 am
    Here is a video of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen playing the newlywed game, in which they are continually confused about how the game is played, while doing adorably British things like explaining the definition of Yorkshire Pudding. They actually don't get a lot of the questions right, but obviously that does not negate the fact that they are two most precious Sirs to ever engage in best friendship. We kindly invite you to go ahead and just roll around in the video below.

  • I'm With Stupid: Chicken Pizza and TV Sports at the Hair Hooters

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:08 pm
    I was watching the Masters on TV last weekend, and I noticed for the umpteenth time that every ad during the telecast was for either a financial services company or a pill to make your wiener hard. Why is that? Is the public perception of golf fans seriously that they're all rich but impotent? I find that pretty funny because I love golf and I'm neither of those things, although having been poor my entire adult life, I would happily take a penis pill for the money. I guess that's just the stereotype of golfers, though, isn't it? They're all rich, old men. That's not too bad, I suppose. There…

    These days, the only thing harder than making money is hanging onto it. Easier to protect dandelion fuzz in a tornado. Everywhere you go, everyone wants a taste. Their only job is to get a grip on your money. And some of these folks are pretty darn good at their jobs. Solicitations. Donations. Hand-outs. Charges. Taxes. Commissions. Percentages. Invoices. Expenses. Billings. Licenses. Permits. Compensatory Remunerations. Honorariums. Balance due. Ante ups. Shipping fees. Handling fees. Entrance fees. Exit fees. The way we're getting nickel and dimed from every angle is like being nibbled to…
  • Worshipping at the Erma Bombeck Altar

    18 Apr 2014 | 11:09 am
    The difference between women's humor and men's humor is the difference between revolution and revolt. It's the difference, in other words, between Erma Bombeck and The Three Stooges. I've worshipped at the Bombeck altar since reading her three-times-per week columns in the newspaper when I was a kid, so to have delivered the keynote speech at the conference held in her honor two years ago was such a privilege that I decided to go back and give three talks this year. This year's 2014 conference at The University of Dayton was so much fun many of the sessions, filled with hundreds of women (and…

    "Deception correlates with anonymity not with spending." Annenberg Policy Center's Department Head, Kathleen Jamieson, Ph.D Deception. Some might call it lying. Professor Jamieson, a well-respected scholar who has spent years calling for truth in political speech, doesn't toss around the word, "lie." This is the admirable trait of an intellect far more above the fray than a jaded columnist. When the Supreme Court's decision deeming limitless donations to political parties to be a first amendment right came down, Jamieson was more concerned with the inherent dishonesty rather than the tearing…

  • Exxon: 25 Years of Tears in Alaska

    Shannyn Moore
    24 Mar 2014 | 3:23 pm
    Time has a strange affect on events in our lives. I feel I'm looking through a glass of water when I look back 25 years to this day, March 24, 1989. I'd left Seattle University and the Ballard Lochs on the M/V Westward heading north through the Inside Passage of British Columbia for the sac roe herring fishery in Sitka. No time in my life is etched as clearly as that spring. There is a certain magic about following Spring to Alaska. Per my not so scientific study, I've determined Spring moves at about 9 nautical miles an hour, about the same as the hundred foot boat I worked on. The inside…
  • Free EPT Tests in Alaskan Bars... Because Birth Control Is Irresponsible

    23 Mar 2014 | 12:38 pm
    I had a plan to write a column that was going to make the Anchorage municipal elections coming up be the sexiest, most riveting thing you've ever read. Then someone did something stupid in Juneau, so you'll have to wait a week while I sort this doofus out. First, the reporting on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders from Kyle Hopkins and Marc Lester for the Anchorage Daily News has been incredible. Disturbing, and incredibly needed. Two percent of children born in Alaska have FASD. We need solutions and education. Sadly, we have a "think tank" formed by Sen. Pete Kelly that is sitting on empty.
  • Pope Francis: The War on Poverty vs. the War on Christmas

    Shannyn Moore
    2 Dec 2013 | 5:22 am
    Though not Catholic, I went to a Jesuit University and had one of the most spiritual experiences of my life in Rome. I watched the smoke from the Sistine Chapel signal the selection of a new pope. I like the new guy, Pope Francis. He's not perfect, and neither is the institution, but this guy's a rebel. I think Jesus -- you know, the guy who chased the investment bankers out of the temple -- would like him too. This pope doesn't prance around in red Prada shoes like the previous quitter pope. He has instructed clergy to sell their newer cars, give the money to the poor and drive beaters like…

    It is hard to imagine being abducted, away from your family for eleven years, chained, beaten, with no hope for freedom even when your captors know you did nothing to be there ... that is the case for eighty six men held at Guantanamo Bay prison facility. Neighbors turned in rivals, bounties were paid, and many times the wrong person was taken simply for wearing a certain brand of wristwatch in the days that followed the invasion of Afghanistan. The United States had no evidence of wrongdoing in many cases and has concluded no charges could be filed against these individuals. Some prisoners…
  • Congressman Don Young's '50-60 Wetbacks'

    Shannyn Moore
    28 Mar 2013 | 7:22 pm
    In an interview with Ketchikan's KRBD, Alaska's one and only Congressman, Republican Don Young, was able to include a racial slur in comments regarding the economy and employment. Congressman Young said, "My father had a ranch; we used to have 50-60 wetbacks to pick tomatoes," he said. "It takes two people to pick the same tomatoes now. It's all done by machine." Congressman Young is again under investigation by the House Ethics Committee. The fresh charges are that he failed to report gifts, misused campaign contributions and lied to investigators. The National Republican Party has recently…

    I spent most of Saturday hiking up and down the impossibly steep trails of Muir Woods National Monument. The expanse of ancient redwood groves and lush pine forests near San Francisco Bay was set aside in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt and named in honor of the conservationist chiefly responsible for the existence of our National Parks, John Muir, whose tireless campaigning in support of this continent's most scenic natural places inaugurated our government's role in preserving land for the enjoyment of the people, rather than for the exploitation of industry. The National Park Service…

    25 Mar 2014 | 5:34 pm
    I blame Bill Nye. Several weeks ago, Nye thought it'd be a fine idea to debate a well-known creationist and founder of the Creation Museum, Ken Ham. On debate points and grasp of reality, Nye absolutely won the debate. But ultimately, Ham was the real winner. Not only did the debate send the loud but unspoken message that creationism was worthy of equal time with science but, it turns out, the debate was a huge money-maker for Ham's ridiculous museum -- inside which it's okay to instruct children that the universe is 6,000 years old and that humans rode on the backs of tamed, domesticated…

    I spend a lot of time debunking various myths, slogans and lies, and the undisputed champion of easily debunkable myths continues to be the Republican Party. But, until now, I don't think I've ever fully summarized the most glaring examples of GOP myths and lies. To be sure, this isn't to suggest that all Republicans are easily-misled simpletons. They're not. Yet their party consistently panders to its easily-misled simpleton base with the most egregiously dishonest ideas in American politics. I hasten to note that this list obviously doesn't cover everything and I'm sure you'll have some…

    The Republican battle against the Affordable Care Act just can't catch a break. First, the website is repaired and currently runs quite well. Then we find out that millions of uninsured Americans signed up for a plan, with millions more signed up through the law's Medicaid expansion. Then their Obamacare horror stories turn out to be bogus, and Speaker of the House John Boehner basically gave up on trying to repeal the law. And now, this. Before we get into it, the Congressional Budget Office is the closest thing we have to a neutral arbiter of facts and reality any more. With all sides…

    You're probably familiar with what might be the greatest scene from The West Wing. In a 2000 episode titled "The Midterms," the White House hosts a gathering of talk radio announcers and while President Bartlet addresses the group, he notices a "Dr. Laura" type, Dr. Jenna Jacobs, sitting down while every one else in the room are standing out of respect for the chief executive. Bartlet interrupts his remarks to the room and engages Jacobs directly. "I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination," Bartlet snarkily observes. Then he sets about completely decimating the chief…

  • Now Playing First Base for the Yankees

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Apr 2014 | 6:59 am
    The New York Yankees Opening Day roster included outfielders Carlos Beltran, Alfonso Soriano and Ichiro Suzuki who are 36, 38 and 40 years old respectively. Beltran and Soriano were productive hitters as recently as 2013, posting OPS+ of 128 for Beltran and 114 for Soriano. Suzuki was not as good last year, as his OPS+ was only 75. All three have also slowed down considerably in the field. Suzuki a 10-time gold glove award winner is not the defensive force he once was. Beltran, once a fleet center fielder now spends most of his time in one of the outfield corners or as designated hitter.
  • California and the Republican Party

    Lincoln Mitchell
    17 Apr 2014 | 6:52 am
    Forty years ago Jerry Brown won a Democratic primary defeating runner up Joseph Alioto, the longtime mayor of San Francisco, soundly. Brown then went on to defeat State Controller Houston Flornoy by a margin of less than three percent. Nationally, 1974 was a Democratic year as the Republican brand was badly tarnished by the Watergate scandal, but in California the scion of the state's most famous Democratic political family was barely able to squeak by to victory. A lot has changed in California politics since then. After going Republican in every presidential election but one between 1952…

    11 Apr 2014 | 9:09 am
    The recent decision by the Supreme Court in the McCutcheon case is another ruling that ensures a greater influence of money in politics and ultimately weakens American democracy. Anybody who follows American politics, and particularly elections, with even moderate interest knows that money has always played a major role in our political system, and that in recent years, primarily because of the Citizens United case, it has grown to play a bigger role. Stories of massive independent expenditures, candidates spending most of their time raising money and building relationships with wealthy…
  • Commemorating Derek Jeter, Forgetting Bernie Willams

    Lincoln Mitchell
    7 Apr 2014 | 6:13 am
    The Derek Jeter retirement tour began in earnest last week in Houston as Jeter was presented with a pair of cowboy boots that only a Yankee fan, and probably not too many of them, could love. Jeter's retirement has led to a recognition that he is the last of the Yankee core four to retire. Jorge Posada retired a few years ago; and Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte retired at the end of last season. Every mention of a core four, the alleged true Yankees at the heart of their 1996-2009 run, is a reminder of how another great Yankee, Bernie Williams, has become increasingly overlooked over time.

    It is rare that the comments of a state legislator make national news, even more so when those comments are only three short words. Last week, however, State Senator Joshua Miller made national news when he told Dan Bidondi of Infowars to "Go f#ck yourself!" Bidondi, an avid supporter of unrestricted gun ownership had been present at a press conference where Miller and other state legislators appeared. Miller's comments came after Bidondi had been harassing and berating participants at the event. Miller later apologized for using profanity. However, as more information about this…

    Robert L. Borosage
    9 Apr 2014 | 12:23 pm
    This week, the House of Representatives will vote on the Republican budget, presented by Republican Budget Chair Paul Ryan (as well as alternatives from the Democratic leadership, the Congressional Progressive Caucus "Better Off Budget," the right-wing Republican Study Group budget and Congressional Black Caucus). Republicans are reportedly lined up to vote for the Ryan budget, with the exception of a handful that think it is not extreme enough. The budget, of course, is dead on arrival in the Senate. So this is a message statement, a voluntary vote to let Americans know where Republicans…

    Today, the Congressional Progressive Caucus released its annual budget proposal -- the "Better Off Budget" (link not yet available). Budgets are numbing, grist for geeks, not citizens. This budget is no exception, detailing row after row of numeric projections. Produced in conjunction with the Economic Policy Institute, it is a technician's document, based on a sound economic model. But amid the numbers, budgets display our values, what we consider important, what we consider fair, how we address our future. Taken together, the blizzard of numbers provides a pointillist portrait of the…

    Remember the Republican promises about comprehensive tax reform? A flatter, simple tax code. Lower rates, paid for by closing loopholes. Well, never mind. For years, Republican candidates have pledged comprehensive tax reform that would offer lower rates paid for by closing loopholes. They've rejected any effort to close obscene dodges in the tax code arguing that had to be part of comprehensive tax reform. From the Romney campaign, the Ryan budgets, to endless stump speeches, they promised to lower rates paid for by what became known the "magic asterisk" -- details on what loopholes get…
  • Fast Track to Nowhere: America's Failed Trade Policy

    The Obama administration continues to push a fast track to nowhere. U.S. Trade Representative Michael B. Froman now has launched charm offensive, meeting with legislators, consumer, union and environmental groups to try to defuse growing opposition to fast track trade authority. Fat chance. Senate Majority leader Harry Reid says he has no intention of bringing fast track up on the Senate floor (at least before the election). House Speaker John Boehner couldn't even round up a Democratic co-sponsor for the bill. Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has voiced her opposition. Froman's strategy now is…

    In a State of the Union address that lasted more than an hour, President Obama challenged the Congress to raise the minimum wage, announced he would act immediately to issue an executive order lifting the lowest wages of government contract workers, and urged companies to give Americans a raise as well. This was far from the president's best speech, but as Republican CNN Analyst Alex Castellanos quipped in the best line of the night, "a speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex. The worst there ever was is still excellent." The president went through a long laundry list of proposals and…

    Is the United States a strong nation? There's a notion that it is, of course -- based mainly on the disruptive philosophical underpinnings upon which this country was established. But these are all really the fumes of nostalgia. What else is there? Well, we have the best fleet of aerial drone death-dealers in the world (for now). Certainly our fast-food accomplishments are second to none. And our Reality Teevee Industry remains one of the more successful and innovative welfare programs in the world, lifting individuals with no evident utility to the human race -- and who would quite likely be…

It was a realm in which a massive unemployment crisis that swept across post-crash America was only perceived to affect a group of affluent political celebrities and their electoral hopes.

    It was in the wan light of a morning still sleepily breaking into the day to come that the idea occurred to him. It was a thought, a notion, that first seemed to be slowly ambling into his consciousness, and then was suddenly there, all at once, like a flood of unfamiliar beliefs. He struggled to understand this new concept welling up in his imagination. A full approximation of its significance was not something he was constitutionally able to achieve in the split-second that was afforded him by this new insight before its insistent demands for concrete realization compelled him -- with the…
  • Turns Out The Ohio Chrysler Plant Deemed Doomed In 2012 Is Not So Doomed After All

    Jason Linkins
    14 Mar 2014 | 2:10 pm
    The Toledo Blade's Tyrel Linkhorn reported Friday that a Chrysler plant in Toledo, Ohio, is having itself a pretty terrific year. Chrysler is planning on hiring "up to 1,000 part-time employees for the Toledo Assembly complex" in order to give their full-timers a break. Those full-timers have been "regularly working 60 hours a week," racing to keep up with "record demand for the Jeep Wrangler and the launch of the new Jeep Cherokee last year." Chrysler's already been through a round of hiring part-timers: 50 of the 380 they've brought in have had their positions converted to full-time. And…

    This week, the Congressional Budget Office has once again proven itself an able newsmaker, issuing a report scoring the economic impact of a proposal to raise the federal minimum wage from its current $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour. And once again, the CBO has produced a reality-based mixed bag. As HuffPost's Dave Jamieson reported, on the plus side, the increase would "raise the country's collective wages by $31 billion and lift perhaps 900,000 people out of poverty." The downside? The effort would also "likely eliminate an unknown number of jobs, ranging from a "very slight decrease" to…
