    This week brought a surprise: In a time of rampant division, we saw an entire people -- or at least 55 percent of them -- choose unity instead. On Thursday, 3.6 million Scots went to the polls and chose not to change Great Britain to Somewhat Less Great Britain by voting against severing their 307-year union. Now, after the celebratory champagne and haggis (or whatever one drinks with haggis), comes the hard work of ironing out a new division of power.

    In all likelihood, when you were little, you played America's best-selling board game, Monopoly. The colorful money, antique tokens, and cartoon old man let us pretend to be important, to feel successful, to realize the American Dream of prosperity. This childhood memory becomes something parents share with their children, growing into a cultural touchstone spanning generations. Perhaps it is the warm memories of playing with siblings that obscures what the game's objectives are, how it is played, and the lessons it imparts. For one, there is the object of the game itself, plainly stated: The…

    Co-authored by Ellen M. Snyder-Grenier By 1943, the United States is embroiled in World War II. To meet the urgent demand for ships and heed President Franklin D. Roosevelt's call to hire African Americans for war jobs, Chester, Pennsylvania's Sun Shipbuilding -- located just below Philadelphia on the Delaware River waterfront and one of the largest facilities in the nation -- opens up a segregated yard: "Yard No. 4." Some see it is progress. It means 6,200 jobs for African American workers. Others say it is a step backwards -- that it makes segregation look like a workable solution for…

    WASHINGTON -- A House committee will hold a hearing next week to examine how the U.S. Secret Service failed to prevent an armed intruder from hopping the White House gate Friday night and making it all the way into the entrance of President Barack Obama's residence. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, announced Monday the panel will meet Sept. 30 to discuss Secret Service security protocols. Secret Service Director Julia Pierson has been invited to testify. "The recent intrusion of an individual into the White House is the latest in a…

    COLOGNE - The use of adblocking software by consumers, which disables banner ads also disables in-stream video ads, is on a rapid increase.   Some 27 percent of U.S. Internet users use some sort of adblocking solution when browsing, according to a study done by Dublin-based PageFair in collaboration with Adobe.  It is titled "AdBlocking Goes Mainstream." For an overview on the report and the way it impacts video ads, we spoke with PageFair CEO Sean Blanchfield.   He tells Beet.TV that of the publishers his company tracks in the U.S., some 20 percent of ads are blocked.  That percentage…

    Wenn wir uns die westliche Unternehmenskultur heute anschauen, finden wir zwei sehr verschiedene und miteinander konkurrierende Welten vor. In der einen Welt sehen wir eine klare Manifestation des Burnout-Syndroms: eine Geschäftskultur, die sich einzig und allein auf Quartalsberichte, die Maximierung kurzfristiger Gewinne und das Übertreffen von Wachstumsvoraussagen konzentriert. In der anderen Welt sehen wir eine wachsende Anerkennung der Auswirkungen von Stress am Arbeitsplatz auf die Angestellten - und auf die Bilanz des Unternehmens. Es gibt zunehmend Belege dafür, dass die…

    Am Morgen des 6. April 2007 fand ich mich in einer Blutlache auf dem Fußboden meines Arbeitszimmers wieder. Im Fallen war ich mit dem Kopf gegen die Schreibtischkante geschlagen, hatte mich am Auge verletzt und mir das Jochbein gebrochen. Mein Kollaps war das Ergebnis von Erschöpfung und Schlafmangel. Nach ihm begann eine Odyssee von einem Arzt zum nächsten, vom MRT zum CT und Echokardiogramm, um sicherzustellen, dass hinter der Erschöpfung nicht doch ein organisches Problem steckte. Es gab keins. Doch schnell bemerkte ich, dass die Wartezimmer von Arztpraxen ein guter…

    Two elite New England universities made major changes to their policies governing fraternities amid scrutiny over student misconduct on both campuses. Wesleyan University in Connecticut, which is frequently listed as one of the top 10 liberal arts schools, told students Monday morning that its three all-male, residential fraternities must go coed or lose the school's official recognition.

    WASHINGTON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - The Obama administration said on Monday it will take several actions against corporate tax-avoidance deals known as "inversions" by reducing the tax benefits accessible to inverted companies and by making inversions more difficult to do. The effective date for the new inversion rules is Monday, said a senior Treasury official on a conference call with reporters. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said in a statement: "These first, targeted steps make substantial progress in constraining the creative techniques used to avoid U.S. taxes, both in terms of meaningfully…

Landrieu helped a Louisiana State University fan do a keg stand on Saturday during a tailgate ahead of the Tigers' game against Mississippi State. The senator received a bit of scrutiny for the stunt from Republicans on Twitter, including National Republican Senatorial Committee strategist Brad Dayspring who tweeted, "Chaos at home, chaos abroad and Mary Landrieu is doin kegstands."

    Foreign policy pundits have had a rough time recently in Washington, D.C. First, the New York Times slammed a number of high profile think tanks for the nature of their links to foreign donors. A former visiting fellow at the Brookings affiliate located in oil-rich Qatar, Saleem Ali, had reportedly told the newspaper that he was instructed not to take positions critical of Qatar during his job interview, and the Center for Global Development drew fire for allegedly overstepping legal and ethical lines in relation to a grant it received from Norway.

  • Climate Change: It's About People, Not Politics

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    When you think of climate change, it's important to remember that it's not about the politics behind the issue, it's about the people on our planet. That's why I woke up on Sunday morning to march with 400,000 strangers at NYC's People's Climate March who believe in the same thing I do -- climate change is real, and we've got to find a solution. Originally, I hadn't planned on attending the march this weekend. This was supposed to be a selfish "me" weekend, but after I surprise visit from an old friend on Saturday morning, I had the opportunity to also meet climate change scientist Dr. Robin…
  • Gillibrand: Not the First, Not the Last

    Does it really matter which of the 50 senators made inappropriate comments to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand? What does matter, as stated by Evan Osnos in the New Yorker, is "that the Senate, which takes pride in its courtly traditions, exists in a world unto itself, seemingly unencumbered by the basic protections afforded by an H.R. department." In her book Off the Sidelines, Gillibrand recounts remarks her colleagues made about her weight. Some have called for her to name names or to retaliate. If she did so, she would not be able to continue being effective at her job. Gillibrand partially…

  • UN To Slash Food Aid By 40% For Millions Of Syrians Because It Doesn't Have Enough Funding

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    The U.N.’s World Food Program (WFP) is so strapped for funds that it has no choice but to soon cut its nutrition aid to millions of needy Syrians by 40 percent, Reuters reported. Nearly 6 million Syrians affected by the country’s civil war rely on WFP for their basic food needs, but that support will be significantly reduced as early as next month both for people in Syria and refugees in neighboring countries because the group hasn’t been getting the contributions it needs to support its programming, the organization said in a statement on Thursday.

  • This Is What Breasts Really Look And Feel Like (NSFW)

    We see breasts every day on billboards, in magazines, on HBO. They're photoshopped and perfectly lit, idealized fantasy versions of reality. Weirdly, it can sometimes seem that the breasts we see the least of are our own, and the way we talk about them reflects that. When breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel! initially asked women to describe their breasts for the What Normal Feels Like campaign, they almost universally picked a size. Big, small, maybe somewhere in the middle. But, as CoppaFeel! argues in the campaign, there's so much more to our breasts, and it's about time we got…

  • Bollywood, Respectability and Flat Female Leads

    22 Sep 2014 | 1:13 pm
    It's not the cleavage of Bollywood actresses but the flatness of on-screen characters that's driving the objectification of women in India. "There are only two types of women: goddesses and doormats," Picasso once famously said. In India today, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is undoubtedly the former. Last week, The Times of India (ToI) tweeted out a video compilation of Deepika's cleavage. Widely shared, it elicted criticism from the Bollywood actress herself who tweeted: "YES! I am a Woman. I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??" and "Don't talk about Woman's Empowerment…

    Amidst the media's frenzied coverage of the Ebola disease and the more recent viruses including H1N1 and SARS, exists a part of history that is now little mentioned or perhaps forgotten--the Great Influenza of 1918. Indeed there are perennial lessons that physicians, public officials and the press, can learn from the global pandemic that is estimated to have infected 500 million people and taken up to 100 million lives. John Barry's book The Great Influenza: the epic story of the deadliest plague in history (2004, New York, Viking) provides an in-depth look at this dark chapter of U.S.

    As Derek Jeter nears retirement, Major League Baseball took a swing at honoring the Yankees captain with a new tribute video that illustrates that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. The clip shows Jeter, above all, as someone worth emulating. Players from consummate Major Leaguer Mike Trout to Little League phenom Mo'ne Davis imitate Jeter's mannerisms and moves. The farewell ends simply with the words, "Model of greatness. Thanks, Derek." Even compared to recent tributes by Gatorade and Nike's Jordan brand, AdWeek writes that MLB's "is ... the most poignant and moving Jeter tribute…

The talented group of 11 female photojournalists included in National Geographic's "Women of Vision" exhibition seem to have taken Lange's words to heart: they've ventured into all corners of the world, minds and eyes open, and come back with spectacular results. The exhibition, on view at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, was conceived by Kathryn Keane, National Geographic's vice president of exhibitions, and…

Sam Pepper, a British YouTube celebrity with a following of over 2 million, posted a video on Sept. 20 where he walks around grabbing unsuspecting women's butts and films their reactions. The public outcry for the clip to be taken down was so loud that YouTube removed the video this morning. Pepper is famous for his outrageous YouTube prank videos, however this one not only confused but angered many of his fans and a large portion of the Internet. The video features Pepper walking up…

  • Number Of Homeless School Children On Rise, But Stats May Underestimate True Picture

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:56 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of homeless school children is rising in U.S. schools. Education Department statistics released Monday say 1.3 million homeless children were enrolled in U.S. schools in the 2012-2013 school year — an 8 percent increase from the previous school year. A vast majority of the homeless children were living in "doubled-up" quarters, meaning multiple families were living together not by choice. About 70,000 were identified as living in a hotel or motel. In addition, school districts reported that nearly 76,000 of these students were living on their own, such as…
  • Stop the NFL's Tax Scam

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:52 pm
    The NFL's history of protecting thugs and hiding brain injuries is inexcusable. But the real outrage is that taxpayers are funding the construction of coliseums so that bruisers can smash each other in the mouth and billionaires can get richer. Minnesota taxpayers paid $506 million so child beater Adrian Peterson could play in a new stadium. Zygi Wilf bought the Vikings in 2005 for $600 million, and with a new stadium under construction, his team is now worth over a billion dollars. Wilf can thank Minnesota taxpayers for that extra value. Local, state and federal taxpayers all subsidize NFL…

    Co-authored by Ellen M. Snyder-Grenier By 1943, the United States is embroiled in World War II. To meet the urgent demand for ships and heed President Franklin D. Roosevelt's call to hire African Americans for war jobs, Chester, Pennsylvania's Sun Shipbuilding -- located just below Philadelphia on the Delaware River waterfront and one of the largest facilities in the nation -- opens up a segregated yard: "Yard No. 4." Some see it is progress. It means 6,200 jobs for African American workers. Others say it is a step backwards -- that it makes segregation look like a workable solution for…

  • Stop the NFL's Tax Scam

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:52 pm
    The NFL's history of protecting thugs and hiding brain injuries is inexcusable. But the real outrage is that taxpayers are funding the construction of coliseums so that bruisers can smash each other in the mouth and billionaires can get richer. Minnesota taxpayers paid $506 million so child beater Adrian Peterson could play in a new stadium. Zygi Wilf bought the Vikings in 2005 for $600 million, and with a new stadium under construction, his team is now worth over a billion dollars. Wilf can thank Minnesota taxpayers for that extra value. Local, state and federal taxpayers all subsidize NFL…
  • Quitting a Job Without Burning a Bridge

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:24 pm
    Odds are good that you will change jobs multiple times during your career. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 25-34 year-olds spend approximately three years in a job before moving on. Given this timeframe, knowing the right way to quit can leave relationships intact and may actually enhance your professional reputation. On the other hand, leaving in the wrong way can generate negative feelings that could affect the way you are perceived as a professional. Here are five ways to make sure you leave your current job on good terms. Keep your story consistent. The "real" reason you are…
  • What Would You Do If Someone Gave You $5,000?

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:22 pm
    Since we work so hard for the money we have, many of us dream of what we would do if we ever were handed free money, like winning the lottery or getting a big bonus at work. But what would you really do if someone handed you $5,000? Since it's free money, many of us would indulge in something we've been daydreaming about. A trip to Paris. That flat screen TV you've been eyeing. Season tickets for your favorite team. While it can be fun, spending all your free money on something extravagant is a flash in the pan, a fleeting moment. You may not get free money like that again, so why not spend…

  • Obama Administration To Take Action Against Tax-Avoidance Inversion Deals

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:10 pm
    WASHINGTON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - The Obama administration said on Monday it will take several actions against corporate tax-avoidance deals known as "inversions" by reducing the tax benefits accessible to inverted companies and by making inversions more difficult to do. The effective date for the new inversion rules is Monday, said a senior Treasury official on a conference call with reporters. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said in a statement: "These first, targeted steps make substantial progress in constraining the creative techniques used to avoid U.S. taxes, both in terms of meaningfully…
  • Number Of Homeless School Children On Rise, But Stats May Underestimate True Picture

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:56 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of homeless school children is rising in U.S. schools. Education Department statistics released Monday say 1.3 million homeless children were enrolled in U.S. schools in the 2012-2013 school year — an 8 percent increase from the previous school year. A vast majority of the homeless children were living in "doubled-up" quarters, meaning multiple families were living together not by choice. About 70,000 were identified as living in a hotel or motel. In addition, school districts reported that nearly 76,000 of these students were living on their own, such as…
  • Alleged Insider Traders Made Bad Spies

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:34 pm
    John Le Carré is unimpressed. If you're going to use spycraft to conduct insider trading, at least use it properly. Last week, a Brooklyn man named Frank Tamayo, 41, pleaded guilty to Securities and Exchange Commission charges that he had been the middleman in an insider-trading scheme that the SEC had first alleged back in March. According to the SEC, Tamayo helped two other men - Steven Metro, then a clerk at the Simpson Thacher law firm, and stockbroker Vladimir Eydelman, formerly of Oppenheimer and Morgan Stanley - pull off a plot that seemed clever, but also hilarious. Metro regularly…

  • Inside the Long-Unopened Storage Locker of The Beatles' American Lawyer

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:25 pm
    Sometimes when you research a book, you get lucky. That's how this story began. I got lucky last June, just not in quite the way I'd hoped, as you'll read. But my pursuit of a long-lost audiotape eventually opened the door (literally) and allowed me to take possession of a storage locker owned by a lawyer named Nat Weiss. For those who don't know, Nat just happened to represent The Beatles over on this side of the pond. It all started when I was doing research for a non-fiction book on The Beatles' manager Brian Epstein. I was poking around for some audiotapes of a phone conversation that I…

    I tried to ignore it. I really did. It all started with the promo cover shot for Nicki Minaj's new single, "Anaconda". The singer is squatting with her backside toward the camera, wearing something akin to pink dental floss on her derrière. The image itself was disturbing in its vulgarity. I actively avoided it but it was everywhere: trending on twitter, the cover story of a major search engine, and on various major news sites. When Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" video finally debuted I watched it to see what all of the fuss was about. To say that the video shocked me is a vast understatement. Ms.

And yet, here he is, literally in the heart of Hollywood at the BiteSizeTV studios on the main floor of the W Hotel right on Hollywood Blvd. Why? When I am asked about being in the business I often tell people if you can be anything else, if you can do anything else, stay out of the entertainment industry.

  • A-Sides Gets Raw: Talking the Ring and the Road with WWE Divas Champion Paige

    Bra and panties matches are all well and good, but arguably many diehard wrestling fanatics might dismiss gimmick matches like that as simply "eye candy" with a chance of a lucky wardrobe malfunction. But, there's more to the Womens Wrestling Division than a thong, hair toss, and ass slap. While some hardcore fans may not take female wrestling seriously, anyone who followed sports entertainment back in the day and even after know that a Mae Young Bronco Buster was just as entertaining as a Bradshaw clothesline.

"Mix it up in a little cereal bowl and let it sit for a little while. It comes out and you've got a nice little cake," Brown said, laughing. "A couple of the homies taught me how to do it." Accustomed to the high life since he became an R&B star at 16, Brown was brought low by his three months in lockup. He emerged last June determined not to slide back into his old ways. Jail had changed things. "I've always reneged on a lot of my…

    It looks like it's really over for Kris and Bruce Jenner, as the 58-year-old momager finally filed for divorce after the pair separated more than a year ago. TMZ reports that the divorce is "totally amicable," and no lawyers have been involved. Sources told the website that everything has been worked out with their business managers, and since the couple reportedly married without a prenup, they've agreed to split their property. Neither is seeking spousal support. RadarOnline claims to have obtained the divorce filing, and notes that Kris lists "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for…

  • High Heels or Sensible Flats?

    19 Sep 2014 | 3:25 pm
    Women's footwear has its own history. "Heels" as a type has fallen in and out of popular fashion several times since WWII, most notably in the late 1990s when lower heels and even flats prevailed. Now we hear that "flats are back!" "Whereas heels were once integral to power dressing, flats now connote a liberation from that stereotype. As clothes have become more gender-neutral, the need to announce our femininity with a percussive soundtrack has vanished," writes Sadie Stein. Wow! This sounds progressive. Who could have predicted that flats and other "sensible shoes" would become symbols of…
  • The 5 Biggest Natural Hair Mistakes

    Marcus Garvey once challenged black people to get the kinks out of our minds and not out of our hair. Never has this statement been more true than with the natural hair movement. Don't get me wrong. The modern natural hair movement is an amazing cross-cultural coalition of women with kinks and curls giving emotional support and hair advice to one another. It is great in many respects! But, the movement often fails to challenge the very paradigm that encouraged women to chemically process their hair and thereby prevented them from remaining natural, in the first place. In my view, the…

    When you think of climate change, it's important to remember that it's not about the politics behind the issue, it's about the people on our planet. That's why I woke up on Sunday morning to march with 400,000 strangers at NYC's People's Climate March who believe in the same thing I do -- climate change is real, and we've got to find a solution. Originally, I hadn't planned on attending the march this weekend. This was supposed to be a selfish "me" weekend, but after I surprise visit from an old friend on Saturday morning, I had the opportunity to also meet climate change scientist Dr. Robin…

    From the flood-prone coastline of Bangladesh to East Africa's drought-stricken farm lands, climate change hits people hardest who have least contributed to it. World governments have agreed to mobilize $100 billion a year for climate mitigation and adaptation projects by 2020, most directly through the new Green Climate Fund (GCF). The People's Climate March will hopefully set some official pants on fire and speed up the capitalization of the new fund. At the same time, we need to be vigilant that the powers that be don't abuse the GCF as honey pots from which they can fund business-as-usual…

Well, that is going to happen soon. I also hear the words of a Bob Marley song in my head, one of the finest protest songs he wrote: "Get up, Stand up..." and I add some of my own bad lyrics to talk about rhinos and what will soon be a worldwide protest against the atrocities we are seeing committed to them. It seems inconceivable that a rhino gets slaughtered…
  • How Long Will New Jersey Remain the 'Garden' State?

    Those who only pass through New Jersey may wonder why we residents would ever call it The Garden State. Our daughter learned this while introducing herself at a gathering of fellow freshmen at college; when she said she was from New Jersey, a snide questioner replied, "New Jersey, eh? What exit?" Little do they know of the magnificent farmlands and woodlands and wetlands that lie beyond the toll booths. Little do they know of the parks both rural and urban, of the pinelands, of lakes large and small, of the bucolic shaded towpaths that line our sixty-six miles of Delaware and Raritan Canal,…

    When you think of climate change, it's important to remember that it's not about the politics behind the issue, it's about the people on our planet. That's why I woke up on Sunday morning to march with 400,000 strangers at NYC's People's Climate March who believe in the same thing I do -- climate change is real, and we've got to find a solution. Originally, I hadn't planned on attending the march this weekend. This was supposed to be a selfish "me" weekend, but after I surprise visit from an old friend on Saturday morning, I had the opportunity to also meet climate change scientist Dr. Robin…
  • No Need to Sacrifice the Planet's Arteries to Save Her Lungs

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:49 pm
    From the flood-prone coastline of Bangladesh to East Africa's drought-stricken farm lands, climate change hits people hardest who have least contributed to it. World governments have agreed to mobilize $100 billion a year for climate mitigation and adaptation projects by 2020, most directly through the new Green Climate Fund (GCF). The People's Climate March will hopefully set some official pants on fire and speed up the capitalization of the new fund. At the same time, we need to be vigilant that the powers that be don't abuse the GCF as honey pots from which they can fund business-as-usual…
  • This World Rhino Day, We Need to Stop Rhino Poaching for Good

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:26 pm
    As I write this we are parked under a tree in Botswana looking out at a gentle flowing patch of golden grass blowing in a late wind and thinking that this pristine image would really pop if a mother and calf rhino walked into frame. Well, that is going to happen soon. I also hear the words of a Bob Marley song in my head, one of the finest protest songs he wrote: "Get up, Stand up..." and I add some of my own bad lyrics to talk about rhinos and what will soon be a worldwide protest against the atrocities we are seeing committed to them. It seems inconceivable that a rhino gets slaughtered…
  • How Long Will New Jersey Remain the 'Garden' State?

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:14 pm
    Those who only pass through New Jersey may wonder why we residents would ever call it The Garden State. Our daughter learned this while introducing herself at a gathering of fellow freshmen at college; when she said she was from New Jersey, a snide questioner replied, "New Jersey, eh? What exit?" Little do they know of the magnificent farmlands and woodlands and wetlands that lie beyond the toll booths. Little do they know of the parks both rural and urban, of the pinelands, of lakes large and small, of the bucolic shaded towpaths that line our sixty-six miles of Delaware and Raritan Canal,…
  • Marchers Need to Stay Involved in the Congressional Climate Fight

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:11 pm
    The historic Climate March in New York City is a big wake-up call for Congress, as more than 300,000 citizens demonstrated their support for action to avert the disastrous impacts of climate change on American families. House Republicans have not only stymied congressional action to stop dangerous climate change by opposing every forward-thinking policy, but they have repeatedly tried to roll back the landmark Clean Air Act, which enabled President Obama to put forward an executive branch Climate Action Plan. We have stopped over 100 anti-Clean Air Act riders in the last two Congresses alone,…

  • Hilarious Focus Group Asks Pups To Rate Products, And They're Not Shy With Their Opinions

    It pays to know what your customers want -- even if they walk on four legs, bark at inappropriate times and leave drool marks on your car windows. That's the thinking behind the latest commercial from Big Lots, an overstock-based department store that sells everything from groceries to furniture to small electronics. In assessing which pet supply products should be stocked on their store shelves, they filled a boardroom with a new kind of focus group -- one made up of the actual consumers as opposed to their owners. Committed to their furry focus group's satisfaction, the two moderators…
  • Why We Should Stop Climate Change, According To Kids

    More than 400,000 people showed up on Sunday for the People's Climate March in New York City, rallying in solidarity with a planet that's facing an onslaught of climate change, greenhouse gases and rising seas. Thousands of organizations including students, faith groups, labor unions, businesses and environmental activists participated in the march, but it's the youngest among them that will have to inherit the future many of us will leave behind. The Huffington Post spoke to dozens of kids that came out for the march, hoping to protect the world they'll soon grow into. Their answers -- and…
  • Bella The Pit Bull Was Shot And Abandoned, But She Finally Got Her Big Hollywood Ending

    22 Sep 2014 | 12:31 pm
    Bella the pit bull's early life could have been a horror movie. Now it's a love story. Over the summer, a family on a camping trip found Bella in the woods of Idaho. She had been shot and severely beaten, and she was starving. The family rushed her to a veterinarian for emergency surgery. "The bullet in her chest was almost impossible to get out. It was lodged under her jugular and took time to be removed. It was also discovered that Bella had been beaten so badly that she was rendered blind in her right eye," says Sarah Spier, a makeup artist who worked on "No Country For Old Men," and who…

    NEW YORK -- On Sunday, 400,000 people marched the streets of Manhattan to take a stand against climate change. Said to be the largest-ever demonstration against climate change, the People’s Climate March in New York City drew folks of all stripes: grandparents who said they were marching so their grandchildren might grow up on a healthy planet; young people who shouted chants against corporate power; farmers who wanted fracking to stop; a little girl named Ileana, who told The Huffington Post that she was there so orangutans would have a fighting chance at survival.

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:17 pm
    Kalina Silverman thought she was alone. She was wrong. As a freshman at Northwestern University, Silverman had a tough time adjusting to life on the Evanston, Illinois campus. While writing an article for her journalism class about her experience, she asked the class of 2016 on Facebook if they had similar experiences, and the stories came flooding in. "It made me realize that everyone goes through tough stuff and they just don't talk about it," Silverman, now 20, told The Huffington Post in an interview. "Then the next year I was having a really deep conversation with one of my friends and…

  • Americans Think Chicago Is The Most Dangerous U.S. City, But It's Really Not

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:47 pm
    A new poll found that over half of Americans think Chicago is more dangerous than any other large U.S. city. But their perception does not match the reality of the Windy City's crime rate, which is actually falling. The YouGov poll, published last week, found that Chicago is the only city that a majority of respondents believe to be unsafe, with 53 percent identifying it as dangerous. The next most dangerous major cities, according to respondents, are New York City, Los Angeles, D.C. and Miami. (Story continues below.)

Sam Pepper, a British YouTube celebrity with a following of over 2 million, posted a video on Sept. 20 where he walks around grabbing unsuspecting women's butts and films their reactions. The public outcry for the clip to be taken down was so loud that YouTube removed the video this morning.

  • 7 Things I Learned About Love When My Dad Started Online Dating

    22 Sep 2014 | 6:46 am
    When most 20-somethings have dating questions, they call a single friend. A few might call their moms. But what if your "person" is a 60+ guy who also happens to be your dad? When I first moved to New York, I was that girl who checked in with Mom back at home most nights; she was hilarious and witty and always interested in my day. Plus, she had stage IV cancer, and therefore a lot of mother-daughter wisdom to impart. Those calls were among the most open of my life. With time against us, we were oddly free with our stories and advice. The phone calls stopped a few weeks after my 23rd…
  • Evanston Township Ceases to Exist

    19 Sep 2014 | 12:44 pm
    Until May 1, taxpayers in Evanston supported two governments -- the city of Evanston and Evanston Township. Evanston became a case study in government consolidation when voters decided in March that one Evanston government was enough and dissolved the township as a legal entity. The Better Government Association examined the causes and effects of the Evanston Township dissolution. Illinois has by far the most government taxing bodies per capita of any state in the nation, and township governments have become prime targets for reformers who say they duplicate services of county and municipal…

  • UN To Slash Food Aid By 40% For Millions Of Syrians Because It Doesn't Have Enough Funding

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    The U.N.’s World Food Program (WFP) is so strapped for funds that it has no choice but to soon cut its nutrition aid to millions of needy Syrians by 40 percent, Reuters reported. Nearly 6 million Syrians affected by the country’s civil war rely on WFP for their basic food needs, but that support will be significantly reduced as early as next month both for people in Syria and refugees in neighboring countries because the group hasn’t been getting the contributions it needs to support its programming, the organization said in a statement on Thursday.

    When a transgender student in Brazil was recently fined for wearing a skirt to school, a group of male classmates rose to support her in spectacular fashion — by all showing up at school wearing skirts themselves. According to the U.K.’s Orange News, 17-year-old Maria Muniz, a student at Rio de Janeiro’s Colégio Pedro II, was fined by school officials who said that she was breaking a school rule that states that male students must wear trousers. After the punishment, Muniz reportedly agreed to change out of the skirt. Little did she know, however, that a few of her classmates would…

    It's not the cleavage of Bollywood actresses but the flatness of on-screen characters that's driving the objectification of women in India. "There are only two types of women: goddesses and doormats," Picasso once famously said. In India today, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is undoubtedly the former. Last week, The Times of India (ToI) tweeted out a video compilation of Deepika's cleavage. Widely shared, it elicted criticism from the Bollywood actress herself who tweeted: "YES! I am a Woman. I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??" and "Don't talk about Woman's Empowerment…

    It is sad news for the world that Nigeria, the most populous black nation on earth and the biggest economy in Africa is gradually being taken over by Boko Haram, a terror group whose brutality shocked the entire world. The insurgents have taken over major towns in the northeastern state of Borno from the military and are closing in on the state capital of Maiduguri while extending their control to Northern Adamawa and parts of Yobe state.

He was blamed for "inciting animosity among public." Fifteen years later, Erdoğan pressed charges against me for tweeting a news report about a corruption scandal that implicated his government, with the same Turkish Penal Code article that landed him in jail before. His attempt to imprison me was blocked by chief Istanbul prosecutor, according to sources, and he eventually kicked me out of the country --…

Radio Okapi reported this week that Congolese authorities have implicated a U.S. citizen identified as M. Samuel Jessy in an attempt to illegally smuggle seven children --six girls and one boy, ages 2-8 -- across the DRC's southern border into Zambia in an attempt to expedite their delivery to families in the United States.

    We stand today at the threshold of one of the most significant development challenges of the 21st century: How to feed and nourish 9 billion people by 2050 without destroying the environment, while climate change threatens to significantly diminish crop yields and roll back years of progress. This means farmers will have to produce as much food over the next 35 years as they have over the past 8,000, with fewer resources and greater constraints. The challenge is all the more daunting given that three-quarters of the world's poorest people depend almost completely on agriculture for their…

    I personally like Yelp. Over the past few years, the only poor dining experiences I’ve had were a result of not consulting with the user-generated review site, usually decisions made not of my own volition. Business owners, on the other hand, have long-since had a tumultuous relationship with Yelp since reviews cannot be altered or deleted and disgruntled customers often leave unfair reviews — but I feel like most informed consumers can effectively weed through the BS.

    Once again, the United States is baffled by asymmetrical warfare in the Middle East. While our military budget exceeds the rest of the world combined, our asymmetrical strategy to confront ISIS could be mistaken for a Saturday Night Live skit. To "degrade and destroy" ISIS we will: • Spend $50 million to train and arm moderate Syrian rebels. This is peanuts compared to our cost to train and arm the 250,000 strong Iraqi Army who fled at the first shot, abandoning their expensive American armaments to ISIS. • Launch air strikes that will inevitably produce "collateral damage," (dead…

    When I agreed to chaperone my daughter's field trip, I hadn't quite thought it through. My initial reaction when asked was, "Ooh! Field trip!" But that was me channeling my inner first grader, not the adult me who fears chaos and dirt and is therefore less than an ideal pick for this type of situation. And I assumed that the field trip would be to one of two destinations, the zoo or the aquarium. I made this assumption because those were the places I most wanted to visit. I didn't ask for too many details, even when I heard the word "farm" being thrown about. Because a farm is just a less…

Business owners, on the other hand, have long-since had a tumultuous relationship with Yelp since reviews cannot be altered or deleted and disgruntled customers often leave unfair reviews — but I feel like most informed consumers can effectively weed through the BS.
  • 5 Current TV Shows That Get More Praise Than They Deserve

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:11 pm
    Listen, I get it. People like what people like, and, with so many options available, complaining about the inferior choices made by others is kind of pointless and petty when you could just as easily skip those things altogether in favor of something else. So, in that respect, that I'm about to spend a couple thousand words of column space explaining why the shows a lot of you enjoy are a little more beloved than they deserve to be might seem like kind of a dick move.

  • Who Rescued Whom? Shelter Dogs and Prison Inmates Give Each Other a New 'Leash' on Life

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    3 Sep 2014 | 1:40 pm
    August 9, 2014, was one of the most memorable days of my life. On that day I entered a maximum-security prison in Lancaster, Calif. to witness an extraordinary event connecting the lives of some of its inmates with a pack of rescued shelter dogs. Just a few months ago, five lucky dogs -- Shelby, Oreo, Rendell, Chuey and Eddie -- beat the odds and were pulled from a high-kill shelter in Los Angeles and entered this Level 4 prison for a chance at a better life. Earlier this year, Karma Rescue, a nonprofit that saves at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters across Southern California, partnered with…
  • 30 Things Only Dog Owners Understand

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

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

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

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

  • Jennifer Lopez, 45, in 'Booty' Video: Thanks for Showing Women They Can Be Ageless

    Bonnie Fuller
    22 Sep 2014 | 10:44 am
    JLo, you just redefined the image that the world has of a 45-year-old woman. You celebrate the sexual power of a beautiful big booty in your new "Booty" video and destroy the idea that women over 40 are over. Jennifer Lopez, when you and Iggy Azalea, 24, shake up a storm, singing and showing off your womanly backsides in your just-released video, "Booty," you're doing more than just getting sexy. Yes, you've created the most sensual music video of 2014 and maybe ever, but you've also made a statement about female sexuality and beauty that's historically empowering. Since the dawn of time,…

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

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

Here's why the author of Hard Choices, should be our next president. 1. Hillary Rodham Clinton Would Be a Fabulous President BECAUSE She's a Woman You know that phrase, "When you're number two, you always try harder?" Well, sadly, it's still true that women are the second sex in this country.

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

    29 Aug 2014 | 5:49 pm
    On Thursday, President Obama held a press conference in which he discussed the economy as well as two of the most critical foreign policy issues in the world: the ISIS threat and the situation in Ukraine. On the economy, the president reported: This morning we found out that our economy actually grew at a stronger clip in the second quarter than we originally thought. Companies are investing, consumers are spending. Over the past four and a half years, our businesses have now created nearly 10 million new jobs. So there are reasons to feel good about the direction we're headed. On ISIS and…

    My friend and founder of The Daily Banter, Ben Cohen, wrote a post today titled, Here Are 7 Causes More Important Than Animal Rights. I absolutely agree that all of the issues he listed are important, but as an animal rights supporter I believe there's more than enough room for an entire menu of important issues, including the moral and humane treatment of animals and the protection of endangered species. Besides, it's not as if the U.S. government is somehow busily prioritizing animal rights at the expense of thwarting Ebola or the ISIS threat. Unfortunately, there's exactly nothing on the…

    A particularly intolerable meme continues to play out in the news media and online: Apparently U.S. history began on January 20, 2009, when Barack Obama was inaugurated. In case you were unaware, President Obama is evidently the first president to take vacations; he's the first president to play golf; he's the first president to be photographed without a suit or tie; and he's the first president to routinely use a teleprompter. If you believe any of that, then you're a moron who needs to crack a good book -- anything prior to the events of 2009 will do. There you'll find that not only are…

During the current unhinged freakout surrounding immigration reform and, specifically, the Central American teens and children being held by the U.S. after having entered the country via the Mexican border, I can't help but to the think that the true threats to the U.S. aren't undocumented immigrants, be they adults or children, but rather these dinguses: With Gov Perry pic.twitter.com/oLaxlpwgp8 -- Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) July 10, 2014 When I see this photo, taken at the…

Rick Perry (R-TX), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Bill O'Reilly or various screeching mobs composed of townspeople from The Simpsons brandishing torches, pitchforks and AR-15s in reaction to the over-hyped immigration issue. Speaking of Gohmert, this week he suggested that President Obama is allowing women to be raped by "illegal aliens": And they've committed at least 7,695 sexual assaults. You want to talk…

  • Leonard Cohen at 80

    Lincoln Mitchell
    22 Sep 2014 | 11:35 am
    Anybody familiar with Leonard Cohen knows the haunting often depressing beauty of his lyrics. In his early years performing, Mr. Cohen's unrelenting grimness became something of a joke. The British media, for example, in the 1960s and 1970s frequently referred to him as "Laughing Len." Laughing Len turns 80 today; and his music can still invoke great sadness. The first verse of one of the songs on his newest album is as depressing as anything Mr. Cohen wrote in the 1960s or 1970s. "I saw some people starving. There was murder; there was rape. Their villages were burning.They were trying to…

    Some great ballplayers are remembered so much for the narrative that emerges around them that it overshadows anything they did on the field. Barry Bonds, for example, is more known for steroid controversy than for being the best player of his generation even before he was suspected of steroid use. Cal Ripken Jr. is now remembered more for breaking Lou Gehrig's consecutive game record than for being one of the greatest all around shortstops ever. Jackie Robinson is rightfully remembered more for being the first African American to play in the big leagues in the 20th century than for being an…
  • Is the Gender Gap Really About Race?

    Lincoln Mitchell
    15 Sep 2014 | 5:37 am
    As the 2014 midterm election approaches the gender gap -- or in less polite terms, the Republican war on women -- will likely draw a fair amount of media attention. It's a good Democratic talking point and fits in well with how many view politics in the U.S. today. The gender gap is generally viewed as being a product of both Republican policies and positions on issues such as reproductive rights and, in recent years, contraception, but also on economic questions as well. Women tend to be more concerned with issues like equality of income opportunity and believe that the government should…

    Seeking to interpret a single primary election as a harbinger of future national political trends is something of a mug's game.

    Major League Baseball released its schedule for 2015 this week. This is the kind of late-season event that is only of interest to the most intense fans. Not too many casual observers of the game are interested in knowing who their team will open against next April, whether their team will be home over July 4th or when their team will first meet their most hated rival in 2015. Nonetheless, the schedule is a reminder of both the length and complexity of the baseball season as it is now constructed.

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

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

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

    This Tuesday, Zephyr Teachout is slated to lose the New York Democratic primary for governor to incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Many voters will be seeing her memorable name for the first time when they cast their vote. She has run a shoestring campaign against a powerful, lavishly funded governor who refused to debate her. But whatever the outcome, her campaign has already had dramatic significance for progressives across the country. Zephyr Teachout is a law professor at Fordham and a national expert on the deeply corrosive influence of big money in our politics. Her new book, Corruption in…

    On Labor Day weekend, we bid the summer goodbye. Families picnic; children play hard, knowing the school year is upon them. Politicians pay tribute to workers and to the rewards of hard work. But this Labor Day, workers are struggling to stay afloat. Incomes haven't gone up in the 21st century. Inequality reaches new extremes. A record portion of our national income goes to corporate profits, while a record low goes into workers' wages. Three-fourths of Americans fear their children will fare less well than they have. This Labor Day, we should do more than celebrate workers -- we should…

    The launch of Hillary Clinton's yet undeclared candidacy for president -- in the form of the roll-out of her memoir, Hard Choices, an astounding two and a half years prior to the election -- has been marked by big media and silly gaffes. Tin eared and thin-skinned, Clinton, unlike her husband, has never been a "natural" as a candidate. She campaigns in prose, not poetry, crouched in a cautious, defensive posture that reveals the burdens, not the joys of the stump. But the efforts of Republicans -- and some Obama aides -- to use Clinton's inept comments about the family's wealth to paint her…

With the economy expected to bounce back in the second quarter -- April to June -- the downturn received little attention, dismissed as "a hiccup, not a heart attack." But at Republican campaign committee headquarters, Champagne bottles surely were popped in celebration.

The convictions were, perhaps, the result that close observers could have seen coming a mile away. What no one could have predicted at the beginning of this trial was the desperate and shameful gambit that McDonnell would embark on to clear his name -- effectively slut-shaming his wife and throwing what remained of a disintegrating marriage on the trash heap.

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

    What's needed to save the dwindling Church is a new paradigm: the embrace of atheism as the true religion and religion as the true atheism. Like box stores, the trend in churches is a few get huge while the rest slowly fade away. Progressive Christians and fundamentalists seem to agree when they look for causes of church attendance decline. They parse the details of how church is "done" related to both theology and method. To rock out or not? To affirm a literal gospel, or not? These questions are meaningless today. Both sides miss the point. Belief in Jesus is getting harder to "do" when…

    Who is actually following Jesus: fundamentalist Christians rejecting gay men and lesbians' right to marry, or atheist humanists treating men and women with love and dignity? Fact-based, enlightened atheists sometimes treat people like shit, and delusional fundamentalists sometimes treat people with compassion in spite of their harsh theology. Labels don't mean anything. Who cares about labels when someone is slapping you in the face? Who cares about labels when someone is saving you from drowning? Who someone is and what they do is all that matters. This is especially true because who we are…

Es werde alles getan, um den Franzosen zu finden, hieß es in einer Mitteilung. Dafür gebe es ständigen Kontakt mit den algerischen Behörden. Der 55-Jährige soll nach Informationen aus Algerien am Sonntag in einer bergigen Region bei Tizi Ouzou etwa 110 Kilometer östlich von Algier gekidnappt worden sein.

Ein neues Medikament, entwickelt von amerikanischen Forschern, lässt hoffen: Der Impfstoff "VIP" ("vectored immunoprophylaxis"). Das berichtet die "Bild". Wo andere Impfstoffe Antikörper als körpereigene Immunreaktion auslösen, wirke "VIP" anders - es beschaffe dem Körper eine Anleitung, so dass sich die Antikörper selbst entwickeln. Dies schütze dann vor Infektionen. Im Kampf gegen HIV testeten die Forscher die Methode bei Mäusen - mit Erfolg. Selbst eine hundertfache Menge der HI-Viren infizierte die Mäuse…

    Alibaba puts China on par with the United States in the rapidly increasing global competition for technological innovation and economic transformation.

    In weniger als 20 Jahren leben 60 Prozent aller Menschen in Metropolen, erwarten Experten. Die dort ohnehin angespannte Verkehrslage wird sich zuspitzen. Für den Verkehr der Zukunft müssen intelligente Lösungen gefunden werden. Spannende Visionen gibt es längst. Auf der Verkehrstechnik-Messe InnoTrans in Berlin präsentieren bis Ende September über 2700 Aussteller ihre Ideen. ... zum Beispiel diese hier: 1.

  • Französischer Tourist in Algerien entführt

    22 Sep 2014 | 12:23 pm
    In Algerien ist ein französischer Tourist verschleppt worden. Das Außenministerium in Paris bestätigte am Montag die Entführung. Es werde alles getan, um den Franzosen zu finden, hieß es in einer Mitteilung. Dafür gebe es ständigen Kontakt mit den algerischen Behörden. Der 55-Jährige soll nach Informationen aus Algerien am Sonntag in einer bergigen Region bei Tizi Ouzou etwa 110 Kilometer östlich von Algier gekidnappt worden sein. Der Hintergrund der Tat ist noch unklar. In der Region agieren sowohl Islamisten der Terrorgruppe Al-Kaida als auch kriminelle Banden. Zuvor hatte es…
  • Neue Supermedizin soll bei HIV, Malaria und Grippe helfen

    Ist das der große Durchbruch im Kampf gegen den HI-Virus und gegen Malaria? Ein neues Medikament, entwickelt von amerikanischen Forschern, lässt hoffen: Der Impfstoff "VIP" ("vectored immunoprophylaxis"). Das berichtet die "Bild". Wo andere Impfstoffe Antikörper als körpereigene Immunreaktion auslösen, wirke "VIP" anders - es beschaffe dem Körper eine Anleitung, so dass sich die Antikörper selbst entwickeln. Dies schütze dann vor Infektionen. Im Kampf gegen HIV testeten die Forscher die Methode bei Mäusen - mit Erfolg. Selbst eine hundertfache Menge der HI-Viren infizierte die Mäuse…

    Schon seit Monaten ist von einem neuen Kalten Krieg die Rede. Diese Theorie könnte sich jetzt auch militärisch bewahrheiten, denn US-Präsident Barack Obama rüstet sein Land offenbar auf - und zwar im ganz großen Stil. Nach Informationen der "New York Times" betreibt das Weiße Haus derzeit "die Wiederbelebung" ihres Atomwaffenprogramms. Konkret heißt das: Obama hat die Modernisierung der bestehenden Nuklear-Waffen angeordnet. Darüber hinaus seien neue Waffen und Trägersysteme entwickelt sowie Anlagen aufgerüstet worden. Kostenpunkt: Eine Billion Dollar. Das Blatt berichtet zudem,…

Angelockt wurden sie von den beruflichen und persönlichen Möglichkeiten in Ballungszentren. Die Zahl der Städte wächst kontinuierlich, wie auch die Städte selbst: Sao Paulo, Tokio und Delhi haben mittlerweile jeweils mehr als 10 Millionen Einwohner. Den Erwartungen zufolge werden bis 2050 drei Viertel aller Menschen in Städten leben.

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