  • Looking Back at 9 Years of The Colbert Report (VIDEO)

    Arianna Huffington
    18 Dec 2014 | 1:10 pm
    Today, as The Colbert Report airs its final episode, I'm looking back with gratitude on nine years of great television. The Huffington Post and the Report have always had a special bond; after all, it was Stephen who launched our sister site, The Colbuffington Re-Post. And I loved being on the show several times, discussing everything from my Greek accent to self-sabotage to the obnoxious roommate living in my head. Here's a look back at some of my favorite moments on The Colbert Report over the years. It's bittersweet, but as I told Stephen, the obnoxious roommate in my head sounds an awful…
  • Sunday Roundup

    Arianna Huffington
    13 Dec 2014 | 9:00 pm
    This week, the Senate released its report on America's use of torture after 9/11. The revelations were appalling: a detainee being chained naked to the floor and dying of exposure, another forced to stand on broken legs, more widespread use of waterboarding than previously known, and forced "rectal hydration" (in other contexts, known as rape). And not only did the CIA mislead Congress, but its claims -- repeated this week -- about the program's effectiveness were also unsupported by the evidence. It was a small step in accounting for one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history. But…
  • Dear Ella, Be Proud of Your Beautiful Name

    Earlier this week, as I returned to New York after a week in India for the launch of HuffPost India, I learned that while I'd been away, a story that had run on HuffPost Parents had left one of our readers a bit upset. The post was entitled "20 Kids' Names That Most Often Appear On The 'Naughty' List," and the reader was a 7-year-old girl named Ella -- which also happened to be the number-one name on the "naughty" list. Ella forthrightly took it upon herself to write a letter to HuffPost about her disappointment. Unfortunately, a cranky (or sleep-deprived) elf must have misfiled the letter,…

  • Why Won't the FDA Let Me Donate Blood?

    19 Dec 2014 | 8:38 pm
    I have type O-negative blood; I am what's called a "universal donor." My blood is the most sought-after because no matter what type of blood you have, you can receive O-negative blood. For that reason, in the event of an emergency, first responders bring O-negative blood to the scene. I was in New York City on 9/11, and blood banks, which were inundated by people who wanted to donate, would only accept O-negative blood. I am a happily married man; we've been together for seven years, and we are monogamous and happy. We live in a row house with a porch swing and a white fence; we volunteer in…
  • Cutting Holes in the Law

    19 Dec 2014 | 8:22 pm
    Opposition to faith-based legal exemptions is about equality, not payback. "I'm sorry, but we don't serve your kind here." This overt discrimination is something that leading gay libertarians, who otherwise support marriage equality, think should be legal for wedding photographers, bakers, and other business owners to say to gay couples. (The libertarians' side lost when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the Elane Photography case.) They believe that government, as much as possible, should leave people alone. It is true that government regulation can go too far, hampering businesses and…

  • Thank You, America

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:05 pm
    From the report on torture issued last week by the U.S. Senate we can draw three lessons. The first is a terrible one, but the other two are encouraging. The first thing the report teaches us is that it is indeed possible for the most prominent intelligence agency of the world's most powerful democracy to commit torture on a large scale, to violate the most sacred international conventions, to operate secret prisons in friendly countries, and to lie -- in short to operate illegally for six years running without reporting to its overseers or, what is even worse, by providing doctored reports.

  • Photo of Barack Obama's Irish Immigrant 3rd Great-Grandfather, Fulmoth Kearney, Discovered

    19 Dec 2014 | 6:36 pm
    Family Resemblance? (Image of Fulmoth Kearney used with kind permission of Merlyn White) It was seven years ago when I identified Fulmoth Kearney of Moneygall, Ireland as the most recent immigrant on the maternal side of Barack Obama's family tree. Inheriting land in Ohio from a brother, Fulmoth's father, Joseph, left Ireland for the United States in 1849. Fulmoth and his sister, Margaret, followed in 1850, and his mother and two younger siblings in 1851 -- a classic, chain migration pattern found in countless families. Not surprisingly, many have asked over the ensuing years whether there…

    19 Dec 2014 | 5:10 pm
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department is warning Americans traveling abroad to be extra cautious over the holidays. In a worldwide travel alert issued Friday, the department says an attack this week in Australia highlights the need to be vigilant. The alert says U.S. citizens traveling abroad should be mindful that terrorist groups, or those inspired by them, can pose unpredictable threats in public venues. The alert says an analysis of past attacks and threat reporting strongly suggests that terrorists are focused on hotels, shopping areas, places of worship and schools. A gunman in…
  • NYC Police Violence Protests Compete With Police Supporters

    By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Scores of protesters denouncing police violence against non-whites rallied alongside dozens of supporters of New York City police officers on Friday in a tense standoff outside City Hall that comes amid weeks of mostly peaceful protests. It was one of the first counter-rallies by police supporters since the chokehold death of Eric Garner, a black man killed when officers were attempting to arrest him in July. The killing set off a wave of protests against the treatment of minority groups by police. On Friday about 100 pro-police demonstrators…
  • James Flacco Is Not An Elite Quarterback But Might Now Be An Enemy Of North Korea

    The Baltimore Ravens may want to double check the security of their emails after President Barack Obama sort of named the team's quarterback, Joe Flacco, while discussing an international controversy involving Sony, North Korea, hackers and actor James Franco. "I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco," Obama said during a press conference on Friday, via NFL.com. For comparison, here is a look at Franco and Flacco: James Franco: Joe…
  • Gay Marriage In Florida To Proceed After Supreme Court Refuses To Block

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday refused to block gay marriages in Florida, the latest of about three dozen states allowing same-sex weddings. In a one-paragraph order, the court decided not to step into the Florida case. A federal judge previously declared Florida's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional and said same-sex marriage licenses could start being issued in the state after Jan. 5 unless the Supreme Court intervened. "This is a thrilling day for all Florida families," Daniel Tilley, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties of Florida, said in a…

Pressler, who was expected to join Bloomberg's investigative unit early next year, will stay on at New York, according to a memo sent Friday afternoon by Editor-in-Chief Adam Moss.

    It has been a deeply troubling week for defenders of freedom of expression. After a hacking attack that the FBI has now officially connected to the government of North Korea, and subsequent threats by the hackers, theater chains refused to show the comedy The Interview and Sony eventually pulled it from distribution. The question here is not about the wisdom of making the movie, or whether perceived quality determines its merits of being defended. As actor George Clooney has recently said, With the First Amendment, you're never protecting Jefferson; it's usually protecting some guy who's…

    It's not official, but a Clinton-Bush matchup in 2016 is looking more likely by the day. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has announced that he's exploring a run, and Hillary Clinton has been meeting with potential campaign managers. The prospect of becoming president seems increasingly reserved for those who have a husband, brother, or father who has previously held the position. American Democracy is now controlled by political dynasties. Even former first lady Barbara Bush has criticized the notion of only 2 or 3 families running for high office in a country of over 300 million people - a…

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:38 pm
    WASHINGTON -- A month and a half ago, President Barack Obama went to the East Room of the White House to take his medicine. His party was fresh off a horrible midterm election loss. His name was toxic. One leading Democratic Senate candidate wouldn't even say whether she had voted for him in 2012. His failure to influence events globally, and the inability to pass major legislation domestically, had all contributed to a prevailing sense that the White House had lost its way. The press conference was notable because Obama struck a defiant tone, pledging to plow forward on his planned executive…

This has really begun to worry me, because we are not ready for this change and most of our leading companies won't exist 15-20 years from now. Here are five sectors to keep an eye on: 1.

But one thing is for sure, everytime I am with a customer, I am listening for the answer to this question: What is keeping you up at night? Your customer asked for a meeting and wants to learn about your products and services. Or maybe you arranged the meeting to present and discuss a particular solution. There is a purpose to the meeting. There has to be. But don't let that be the only objective. Leave the meeting understanding what is going on within your customer's business now.

    19 Dec 2014 | 3:04 pm
    Nikki Finke, founder and former editor-in-chief of Deadline, is said to be in talks with Politco about joining the site as a political columnist, The New York Times reported Friday, citing anonymous sources "familiar with the discussions." According to The Times, Finke has not finalized an agreement with Politico and has also been in talks with the New York Observer, among other news outlets. The Times speculates the move to Politico might be motivated by a deal Finke struck with Penske Media, who purchased Deadline in 2009. Finke left the company after Penske acquired Variety, a competitor,…
  • Elon Musk's Hyperloop Could Be Just 10 Years Away

    19 Dec 2014 | 3:01 pm
    Hyperloop, the ultra-fast tube transport dreamed up by SpaceX founder and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, could be ready for passengers in as few as 10 years. In a 76-page report released on Dropbox on Thursday, a new startup called Hyperloop Transportation Technologies laid out plans for building Musk's futuristic transportation system, which could cut travel time between Los Angeles and San Francisco down to 35 minutes. The trip takes between three and four hours by Amtrak train, and more than six hours by car. The system would carry passengers in pods moving as fast as 800 miles per hour,…

  • 2014 Is Ending, but This Wave of Technology Disruptions Is Just Beginning

    19 Dec 2014 | 5:05 pm
    The sun is setting on 2014, but we're about to watch a new wave of technologies rise and remake the world. (Katherine Frey/The Washington Post) Changes in technology are happening at a scale which was unimaginable before and will cause disruption in industry after industry. This has really begun to worry me, because we are not ready for this change and most of our leading companies won't exist 15-20 years from now. Here are five sectors to keep an eye on: 1. Let's start with manufacturing. Robotics and 3D printing have made it cheaper to manufacture in the United States and Europe than in…
  • What Is Keeping You Up At Night?

    19 Dec 2014 | 3:05 pm
    Sometimes I ask the question. Other times, I don't ask it outright. But one thing is for sure, everytime I am with a customer, I am listening for the answer to this question: What is keeping you up at night? Your customer asked for a meeting and wants to learn about your products and services. Or maybe you arranged the meeting to present and discuss a particular solution. There is a purpose to the meeting. There has to be. But don't let that be the only objective. Leave the meeting understanding what is going on within your customer's business now. Tactically, what issues are they facing?
  • Sony Pictures: How Not to Handle a Crisis

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:54 pm
    The hacking scandal that has plagued Sony Pictures since the day before Thanksgiving has gotten out of control. Most are blaming the hackers and an organization calling itself the GOP, or Guardians of Peace. If that name is not a dead giveaway that this group is the big bad wolf in sheep's clothing, I don't know what is. Of course, hackers initiated the problem, and the GOP and others have exacerbated it, but all organizations have to deal with evil forces from time to time that are out of their control. The real problem is the way Sony Pictures executives have handled this crisis. Reacting…
  • Weekend Roundup: New Code War Is Not Funny

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:29 pm
    It took an insolent Hollywood comedy mocking the surreal character of North Korea's Kim Jong Un to awaken us to the dangers of a new code war, a war in which geopolitical and geo-cultural battles will be duked out in cyberspace. As Alec Ross, America's top digital diplomat when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, writes this week in The WorldPost, "the weaponization of code is the most significant development in warfare since the weaponization of fissile material." Other battles are also shaping up to determine the contours of our digital future. Lu Wei, China's Internet czar, makes his…
  • A Carbon Neutral Future Starts With Smart Energy Policy Today

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:44 pm
    Too many people -- and way too many members of Congress -- can't seem to come to terms with this simple fact: no energy source or technology can succeed without a helping hand from Uncle Sam. That's why the big question, as Council on Foreign Relations energy expert Michael Levi so artfully put it, is: Will the federal government be involved in energy in "a smart way or a stupid way?" A lot of people on the left think it's pretty stupid that the government spends billions in tax handouts and regulatory favors on an industry that is causing the climate to change and threatening the future of…

  • Chrysler Expands Takata Air Bag Recall To Entire Nation

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:56 pm
    DETROIT (AP) — After resisting for several weeks, Chrysler is bowing to government demands to expand a recall of driver's side air bag inflators across the entire nation. The company says in a statement Friday that it will recall nearly 2.9 million older cars and trucks across the U.S., as demanded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall includes Chrysler's most popular model, the Ram pickup, from the 2004 through 2007 model years. The vehicles have driver's air bags equipped with inflators made by Japan's Takata Corp. The inflators can explode with too much force…
  • Sean Penn Says Pulling 'The Interview' Gives ISIS 'A Commanding Invitation'

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:34 pm
    Sean Penn has joined George Clooney, Judd Apatow, Aaron Sorkin and Barack Obama in blasting Sony for its decision to pull "The Interview" from release. In a letter sent to Mother Jones, Penn noted that Sony's move -- which happened after the company reportedly put the fate of "The Interview" in the hands of theater owners, who decided against running the film -- had given ISIS "a commanding invitation." "I believe ISIS will accept the invitation," Penn wrote. "Pandora's box is officially open." As with Clooney and Apatow, Penn noted that Sony's decision set a disturbing precedent: The damage…

  • Now We're Mad?

    19 Dec 2014 | 9:24 pm
    The recent airing of Sorority Sisters on VH1 has many people really upset (a slight understatement). Social media lit up with emotional rants about crying and broken hearts, threats to snatch sorors up, calls for boycotts, tweets to brands... the list goes on. I get it. Kinda. See, I'm an AKA (pledged at Omicron Iota in SP '91). I watched, got annoyed, tweeted and found myself yelling at my TV. The one-way conversation went a little like this: "Where the hell did they get these women? Who does that? Seriously? What in the...? No! Please, don't fight. Please! Damn." Before you attempt to…
  • Annie Review

    19 Dec 2014 | 8:52 pm
    On the surface, there is absolutely no reason to update the classic Broadway show Annie, which was already adapted for the screen in 1982. But this multicultural cast redux adds a hip swag to the classic kid's story. This Annie is urban, emotional and fun. But far from perfect. Jamie Foxx and Quvenzhané Wallis co-star in the family musical Annie (photo courtesy of Sony Pictures). Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis, Beasts of the Southern Wild), a foster child, lives with some other girls in a modern-day tenement apartment in Harlem.

  • Annie Is Not as Bad as You Feared, But Not as Good as You Hoped

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:42 pm
    There have been countless iterations of the Broadway musical "Annie" but never one so modernized as the new motion picture version starring Quvenzhane' Wallis. The story has been completely updated and some new songs have been added. Plus some of the old songs have been given new interpretations. Still the sun does come up tomorrow and Annie is the star of the show as always. In the film Annie is a foster kid living at Miss Hannigan's (Cameron Diaz) apartment with an assortment of other girls. Each Friday night she sits outside a restaurant looking for the parents who abandoned her. They…

    The Baltimore Ravens may want to double check the security of their emails after President Barack Obama sort of named the team's quarterback, Joe Flacco, while discussing an international controversy involving Sony, North Korea, hackers and actor James Franco. "I think it says something interesting about North Korea that they decided to have the state mount an all-out assault on a movie studio because of a satirical movie starring Seth Rogen and James Flacco," Obama said during a press conference on Friday, via NFL.com. For comparison, here is a look at Franco and Flacco: James Franco: Joe…

  • From Side Show to the Main Stage: Will and Anthony Nunziata

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:52 pm
    It's said that "two heads are better than one," a cliché being cashed in this year, with conjoined twins hyped as the trend of the season. On TV's FX, there's Bette and Dot Tattler of "American Horror Story" fame, and on Broadway, Daisy and Violet - the real life Hilton sisters portrayed in the revival of Side Show, which will close early in January, having played an eerily similar twin number of 77 performances. However, another pairing has proven that their talent will outlast more than just one season as crooners, actors and concert stars, Will and Anthony Nunziata. Joined at the hip, if…
  • Freedom of Expression Is Worth Fighting For

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:42 pm
    It has been a deeply troubling week for defenders of freedom of expression. After a hacking attack that the FBI has now officially connected to the government of North Korea, and subsequent threats by the hackers, theater chains refused to show the comedy The Interview and Sony eventually pulled it from distribution. The question here is not about the wisdom of making the movie, or whether perceived quality determines its merits of being defended. As actor George Clooney has recently said, With the First Amendment, you're never protecting Jefferson; it's usually protecting some guy who's…

  • This Is The Magical Process Behind Making A Ballet Tutu

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:40 pm
    A tutu is a magical piece of clothing that transforms ballerinas into black swans and sleeping beauties. So it's fitting that the process of making the ruffled skirts is just as sensationally beautiful as the final product. LA Weekly recently profiled a tutu seamstress by the name of Sarah Bacon. Based in Los Angeles, the skilled artist creates costumes for the few lucky students who are lucky enough to nab commissions before Bacon's schedule is filled. She makes "a handful" of skirts a year, because -- as you can see in the video above -- piling fabric upon fabric into waves of color is not…

According to court documents unearthed today by local blog A Walk in the Park, the lease was in violation of a city charter prohibiting using the space for non-park purposes including the temporary use of space for show tents and production equipment.

    This man's quick thinking helped him save a life in danger. Elias Ruiz, a high school teacher and Navy veteran, was duck hunting on the Tuolumne River in California early last Sunday morning, when he heard a strange noise, CBS Sacramento reported. “I could hear a sloshing sound,” Ruiz told the Turlock Journal. “I thought maybe it was a cow or some wildlife coming to get something to drink, but the more I heard it, the stranger it sounded.” But as the sun rose, the hunter could see a shape begin to form a few yards away, and realized that the sound wasn't coming from an animal, at all.

    Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, rose to new heights as an international leader earlier this month when he traveled to the United States to address The World Bank on the need to end the illegal wildlife trade. As someone who has been leading the international fight to end the illegal poaching of elephants for 25 years, I applaud his leadership and urge him to continue to fight this fight which can be won. I know it is possible, because when it comes to elephant tusks, we've already won it once. In the 1990s I led the Kenya Wildlife Service, and we destroyed the illegal market for ivory…
  • Donors Come To The Rescue Of Animal Shelter At Risk Of Christmas Eviction

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:31 pm
    It’s got all the makings of a holiday miracle. Just a week ago, things looked bleak for Cache Creek Animal Rescue, a no-kill, not-for-profit animal shelter with a facility in Joliet, Illinois. The shelter had received an eviction notice telling it to vacate its suburban Chicago facility by Jan. 10, leaving the shelter's dozens of cats and dogs at risk of homelessness. The shelter, which rescues animals facing euthanasia at shelters largely in southern Illinois and Kentucky, reached out to the public for help and has been “overwhelmed” by the response.

  • A Carbon Neutral Future Starts With Smart Energy Policy Today

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:44 pm
    Too many people -- and way too many members of Congress -- can't seem to come to terms with this simple fact: no energy source or technology can succeed without a helping hand from Uncle Sam. That's why the big question, as Council on Foreign Relations energy expert Michael Levi so artfully put it, is: Will the federal government be involved in energy in "a smart way or a stupid way?" A lot of people on the left think it's pretty stupid that the government spends billions in tax handouts and regulatory favors on an industry that is causing the climate to change and threatening the future of…

  • Two Is Not Enough: Why the Campaign Against D.C.'s Marijuana Legalization Initiative Failed So Badly

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:26 pm
    Image credit: DCMJ Last month, the District of Columbia voted overwhelmingly to legalize the possession and cultivation of marijuana for adults' personal use. It's been back in the headlines lately because of Rep. Andy Harris' rider on a must-pass spending bill prohibiting federal funds from being used to enact marijuana legalization in D.C. It's been signed into law but doubts remain as to whether it blocks the enactment of the ballot initiative, or just the planned D.C. Council bill to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol. Whether or not it ends up being successful, this attempt to block…
  • What SeaWorld Should Do

    19 Dec 2014 | 12:24 pm
    SeaWorld has been pummeled by revelation after revelation about its treatment of cetaceans: dolphins, orca whales, and beluga whales that they are responsible for. The most punishing blow came more than a year ago from the shocking documentary "Blackfish," in which several former SeaWorld trainers expressed their own anguish and hurt for the orcas in their care -- SeaWorld insists on calling them "killer whales." One SeaWorld orca, Tilikum, has been involved in the killing of three people so far, yet is still kept for public performances and, perhaps more importantly, for milking of his sperm…
  • Race in the Food System

    19 Dec 2014 | 11:41 am
    By Eliza Loehr On Wednesday December 3rd a Staten Island Grand Jury decided not to indict the New York City police officer responsible for the death of Eric Garner. That night, at a rally in Union Square, protestors began chanting, "The system is broken." A man behind me started to laugh. "The system never worked!" he said, and started chanting, "The system is corrupt!" The system he was referring to is the criminal justice system. And the corruption, I infer, is racism. Whatever you may think about the validity of the protests, they have ignited the country to take a deeper look into our…

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:33 pm
    This man's quick thinking helped him save a life in danger. Elias Ruiz, a high school teacher and Navy veteran, was duck hunting on the Tuolumne River in California early last Sunday morning, when he heard a strange noise, CBS Sacramento reported. “I could hear a sloshing sound,” Ruiz told the Turlock Journal. “I thought maybe it was a cow or some wildlife coming to get something to drink, but the more I heard it, the stranger it sounded.” But as the sun rose, the hunter could see a shape begin to form a few yards away, and realized that the sound wasn't coming from an animal, at all.

    What is this beach beast? On Tuesday, KEYT Senior Reporter John Palminteri was walking on a Santa Barbara beach doing a story on the fallout from a recent storm when he stumbled upon this: "It certainly has been a mystery," Palminteri told The Huffington Post. "It definitely had teeth and I would never want to encounter it in a dark creek path." Palminteri posted the pictures online and asked his audience what they thought it was. Yesterday, Paul Collins, Curator of Vertebrate Zoology at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum, came forward with what he thinks is the answer. "He said it was…

    19 Dec 2014 | 11:49 am
    WASHINGTON -- The Environmental Protection Agency released new rules Friday for the disposal of coal ash, the first national guidelines for dealing with the waste generated by burning coal. The rules don't regulate coal ash disposal as tightly as environmental and community groups had wanted. They put coal ash into the same disposal category as household trash and non-hazardous industrial solid waste, and leave the enforcement largely up to states and local governments. The rules call for the closure of active surface impoundments and landfills that "fail to meet engineering and structural…

Get up to speed on what new rules you'll be expected to follow in the new year. Here are seven of the new laws: 1. E-Cigs Must be kept behind store counters and out of reach from children.

So do a lot of other would-be moviegoers, dissatisfied with Sony Pictures' decision this week to scrap the controversial film (which depicts the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un). And some have whipped up online petitions in an attempt to change studio executives' minds. Sony's decision -- made following terror threats sent by the hacker group responsible for breaching the corporation's computer systems in November -- was met with plenty of criticism this week. On Friday, President Barack Obama said Sony "did the wrong thing." Writer and producer…

  • Beyond Gov. Quinn's Much-Questioned Appointment: Should the Illinois Sports Facility Authority Even Exist?

    19 Dec 2014 | 9:06 am
    When Gov. Pat Quinn last week appointed his former campaign manager Lou Bertuca as the new head of the Illinois Sports Facilities authority, some Illinoisans were suspicious of the patronage feeling to the situation. But Scott Reeder says the bigger issue is not who Quinn chose to fill the position (even after Gov.-elect Bruce Rauner asked him to hold off on big appointments through the end of his term), but that Illinois has a taxpayer-funded agency in charge of its sports teams at all. Why on Earth are we giving tax dollars to subsidize the wealthy individuals who own professional sports…

  • This Is The Magical Process Behind Making A Ballet Tutu

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:40 pm
    A tutu is a magical piece of clothing that transforms ballerinas into black swans and sleeping beauties. So it's fitting that the process of making the ruffled skirts is just as sensationally beautiful as the final product. LA Weekly recently profiled a tutu seamstress by the name of Sarah Bacon. Based in Los Angeles, the skilled artist creates costumes for the few lucky students who are lucky enough to nab commissions before Bacon's schedule is filled. She makes "a handful" of skirts a year, because -- as you can see in the video above -- piling fabric upon fabric into waves of color is not…

  • Thank You, America

    19 Dec 2014 | 7:05 pm
    From the report on torture issued last week by the U.S. Senate we can draw three lessons. The first is a terrible one, but the other two are encouraging. The first thing the report teaches us is that it is indeed possible for the most prominent intelligence agency of the world's most powerful democracy to commit torture on a large scale, to violate the most sacred international conventions, to operate secret prisons in friendly countries, and to lie -- in short to operate illegally for six years running without reporting to its overseers or, what is even worse, by providing doctored reports.

    While the media has focused on political and even military friction between Ukrainians and Russians, few have paid much attention to the status of other ethnic minorities living within Ukraine. Recently, while I was conducting research in Kyiv, I interviewed Denis Pilash, a left-wing political activist who hails from the western region of Transcarpathia, also known as Ruthenia or Zakarpatts'ka Oblast'. For the most part, ethnic minorities of Transcarpathia have gotten along with each other in recent years, though the area's delicate social balance could be upset by outsiders like Putin and…

As Alec Ross, America's top digital diplomat when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, writes this week in The WorldPost, "the weaponization of code is the most significant development in warfare since the weaponization of fissile material." Other battles are also shaping up to determine the contours of our digital future. Lu Wei, China's Internet czar, makes his…

The Israeli military said the airstrike on what it called a "Hamas terror infrastructure site" in the southern Gaza Strip was in response to a rocket fired from Gaza into southern Israel on Friday. The rocket fire caused no injuries. Palestinian residents reported hearing two explosions in the Khan Yunis region of Gaza, in an area that contains training sites for Palestinian militants.

Eager to encourage donors to give back this season, UK’s Save the Children commissioned British comedian Harry Enfield to strut down the beach in the middle of winter wearing nothing but the hair on his back and some teeny red boy shorts. The short spot is a spoof of Southern Comfort’s recent "Whatever's Comfortable" campaign, which featured your everyday man who ambles on the sand until finally gets his hands on a glass of the sweet liqueur, Adweek pointed out.

    Last night was an end of an era. After nine years on the air, Stephen Colbert is stepping away from his award winning show, The Colbert Report. Like millions of others, I tuned in regularly to get the news of the day from the hilarious show. I loved how the show could educate people and explain complicated issues in such an entertaining way. The segments were often more informative than networking news, and a hell of a lot funnier. Ethan Nadelmann, the executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, had the honor of going on his show three times. I've seen Ethan do interviews on many shows,…

    Psychologists, well-meaning intellectuals, and exasperated teachers will claim that the class clown is a disruptive, annoying problem-child who is disguising deep emotional pain by acting like an amateur comedian just to get attention. I say that's academic nonsense because some funny people just like to cause laughter and that's SO much better than instigating food fights in the cafeteria. I often played the coveted role of Santa Claus at my school's parent-student Christmas parties, mainly because I was funny but also because my parents didn't want to be seen with me in public.

  • 'Best Case Scenario' Photo Series Captures The Imperfect But Glorious Mess That Is Parenting

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:56 pm
    Lifestyle photographer Danielle Guenther has spent over two years taking pictures of families and children in their own homes. After one particular session "spiraled out of control," she started making a point to capture the candid moments of chaos that all parents experience, she told The Huffington Post. "Parenthood is messy, but wow, the unflattering side can still be so beautiful," Guenther said. After publishing a few of these messier images of parenting to her website and Facebook page, the photographer started receiving requests from other moms and dads, who wanted their own "real"…
  • Hire A Hairy Man In Boy Shorts If You Really Want To Raise Money

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:43 pm
    Not that you needed any, but here’s more proof that sex –- of any kind –- sells. Eager to encourage donors to give back this season, UK’s Save the Children commissioned British comedian Harry Enfield to strut down the beach in the middle of winter wearing nothing but the hair on his back and some teeny red boy shorts. The short spot is a spoof of Southern Comfort’s recent "Whatever's Comfortable" campaign, which featured your everyday man who ambles on the sand until finally gets his hands on a glass of the sweet liqueur, Adweek pointed out. But in the nonprofit’s version of the…
  • Here's What James Franco Has Been Up To Since Sony Pulled 'The Interview'

    19 Dec 2014 | 1:06 pm
    Hollywood responded with outrage on Wednesday after Sony canceled the release of "The Interview," scheduled for Dec. 25. But the film's stars, Seth Rogen and James Franco, have remained silent since preemptively nixing all press appearances on Tuesday. Franco (or "Flacco," if you're Obama telling the nation that Sony made a "mistake") has been a busy boy. The actor/writer/director/poet hasn't let Sony's decision -- which could set a deeply troubling precedent for future films and freedom of expression -- slow him down. Here's what James Franco has been up to since Sony canceled "The…

  • The Groundbreaking Study Proving Dogs Can Help Us to Be More Fully Human

    Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:25 am
    Imagine being a teenager with no sense of direction, belonging, or purpose. Raised by criminals, in and out of jail, involved in gangs, mixed up in drugs, with felony charges looming over your head, and no bright "future" to speak of. This was Ernesto Gonzales' life just a short time ago, before he was introduced to K9 Connection, a non-profit that pairs at-risk teens with shelter dogs needing training to increase their chances of adoption. While teaching his partner dog basic obedience, the dog opened Ernesto's heart and mind to feelings of empathy, patience, pride, responsibility, and…
  • 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

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

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

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

  • Midterm Election Lessons, One Month Later

    Bob Cesca
    5 Dec 2014 | 6:49 pm
    With the midterms one month in the rear view mirror, a number of lessons seem clear. For example, no matter how badly their candidates do, somehow the elitist, loser ideas of the Third Way crowd find their way back into the conversation. It's funny how unlimited corporate money can help in that endeavor. Here is a reminder--provided by the always astute, Cliff Schecter -- about what this little caucus of Gordon Gekkos hand delivered the Democratic Party in 2014: There's also one other group that should have a big bout of indigestion over this. The center-right hedge fund clique known as Third…

    Bob Cesca
    2 Dec 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Perhaps at some point early in its development, the addition of comments under YouTube videos was probably seen as a positive societal advancement in which consumers were encouraged to help sculpt content via accompanying feedback -- to idealistically form a community where new-media is a two-way road for both creators and the audience, unlike old-media formats like television and print where content delivery is chiefly one-way. The awful reality of comment sections, however, is obvious to anyone who's clicked on a video: YouTube threads are hellscapes of pointless, barely literate vitriol…
  • Democratic Candidates Are Paying the Price for Meddling With Social Security

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

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

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

  • The 25th Anniversary of the U.S. Invasion of Panama

    Joseph A. Palermo
    19 Dec 2014 | 1:28 pm
    With President Barack Obama's decision to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba we might be entering a new era where the ghosts of America's past military interventions in the Caribbean and Central America finally can be placed in a more realistic perspective. Throughout the 1980s, the Reagan administration and its bipartisan allies in Congress had argued that the embargo against Cuba, like the Contra war in Nicaragua, U.S. military aid to El Salvador, and the October 1983 invasion of Grenada, were all steps in countering Soviet power in the region. The problem the United States had with…
  • 'We Tortured Some Folks,' But 'That's Not Who We Are'

    Joseph A. Palermo
    12 Dec 2014 | 2:18 pm
    Last August, President Barack Obama admitted to the press: "we tortured some folks." But he also added that torturing people "is not who we are." His CIA director, John Brennan, calls the CIA torturers "patriots." So which is it? Are they "patriots," deserving of our admiration, or sadists who engaged in acts that are contrary to "who we are?" The Senate Intelligence Committee's executive summary report on CIA torture concludes that at least 26 of the people the CIA contractors tortured were innocent of any ties to terrorism whatsoever. One of the CIA contractors, James Mitchell, was on TV…

    Joseph A. Palermo
    26 Nov 2014 | 4:01 pm
    The internal sniping and bickering has already begun among Democratic ranks but it's their own damn fault. The internal debates following the 2014 midterm elections highlight the ideological schizophrenia that continues to plague the Democratic Party. Is the Democratic Party the party of labor unions or the party of trade deals that outsource American jobs? Is it the party of the environment or a water carrier for fossil fuel corporations? Is it the party of public education or the party of busting teachers' unions and privatizing schools? Does it favor a single-payer health care system or…
  • The 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

    Joseph A. Palermo
    8 Nov 2014 | 7:17 am
    Many historians trace the seeds of the momentous events of November 9, 1989, when the Berlin Wall came down, as being planted back in August 1975 when 35 nations, including the United States, unanimously approved the Helsinki Accords. Helsinki's "Final Act" recognized the sovereignty of East Germany and other Soviet satellites and banned any "armed intervention or threat of such intervention against another participating State." In effect, the Helsinki Accords were an ironclad assurance that neither NATO nor the U.S. would take military action against the Warsaw Pact. It greatly reduced…
  • Midterms 2014: An Extremely Brief Autopsy

    Joseph A. Palermo

    With the dust still settling around the 2014 midterms and so much bloviating commentary inundating us as every pundit in the land tries to interpret the meaning of the elections, we might step back for a moment and try to analyze some of the reasons for this latest Republican romp. I offer below some mercifully brief thoughts about the elections broken down into a few broad categories.

  • The Budget Deal: This Is Who They Are

    Robert L. Borosage
    12 Dec 2014 | 9:22 am
    The first signs of the November election returns are apparent in the $1 trillion spending bill that the House of Representatives passed last night in Washington. This spending bill was forged with resurgent Republicans on their best behavior. They are still a minority in the Senate in the lame-duck session. Their leaders exercised adult supervision over the wingnuts, rejecting calls for a government shutdown over immigration because Obama. They largely adhered to the budget deal cut last year on spending limits, and agreed to fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year through…
  • More Than the Minimum: Obama's Next Executive Action

    Robert L. Borosage
    13 Nov 2014 | 12:29 pm
    On Thursday, several hundred low-wage federal contract employees walked off their jobs in the nation's capitol, telling President Obama that "$10.10 is not enough," demanding a livable wage and the right to organize. While praising the president for issuing the executive order that raised the minimum wage for federal contract employees to $10.10, they argued that it was time for "more than the minimum." These workers are calling for a Good Jobs Executive Order that would give preference in government procurement to good employers that (1) pay their employees a living wage of $15.00 an hour,…
  • After the Debacle: Stopping the Great Heist

    Robert L. Borosage
    5 Nov 2014 | 2:20 pm
    Debacle. Bloodbath. Call it what you will. Democrats, as expected, fared poorly in red states in an off-year election. Worse, unpopular Republican governors survived; Democrats even lost statehouses in blue states like Maryland, Connecticut and Illinois. This was ugly. Yes, the electorate was as skewed as was the map. Many Republicans swept to victory with less than 20 percent of the eligible vote. Voters over 60 made up a stunning 37 percent of the electorate (up from 25 percent in 2012 or 32 percent in the last bi-election in 2010). Voters under 30 were only 12 percent of the electorate,…
  • Bill Clinton's Corporate Idylls

    Robert L. Borosage
    25 Sep 2014 | 11:54 am
    At the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative this week, former President Bill Clinton predicted corporations would soon care less about maximizing profits and more about employees and society. This would happen without significant government involvement because "of proof that markets work better that way." Companies would understand that they gain greater overall success by taking care of their employees and doing good for more than only their shareholders. We should only hope. That revolution in the corporate worldview would be immensely important, to say the least. The focus on…

    Robert L. Borosage
    8 Sep 2014 | 9:42 am
    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…

  • My Very Personal Happy Christmas Story

    Frank Schaeffer
    4 Dec 2014 | 7:05 pm
    For me, as a child in the mission, Christmas meant feeling guilty because Mom did so much and we mere mortals did so little. My childhood Yuletide question was: "Mom, who's going to be in our house for Christmas?" The answer never varied: "The guests God brought to us this year, my dear." Mom stayed up all night wrapping gifts and making everything wonderfully and terrifyingly perfect. That's why every Christmas morning I found the four-foot-long bulging wool stocking stuffed with individually wrapped gifts on the foot of my bed. The horror was that all the strangers my parents invited to…
  • THE TALK: Why I Am an Atheist Who Believes in God v. Colorado Springs

    Frank Schaeffer
    1 Dec 2014 | 5:52 am
    Faith is not a set of ridiculous beliefs, it's a way of being.  An artist is still the best theologian. In this talk given in Colorado Springs to 300 people in the stunning Pikes' Peak Library, I introduced my new book and the ideas behind it.  Somewhere between the sterile, absolute, and empty formulas of reductionist, totalitarian science and the earnest, hostile, excessively certain make-believe of religious fundamentalism, there is a beautiful place. There is room in this place for honesty. For tenderness. For fury. For wonder. For hope. For mistakes. For paradox. For…
  • The Old and New Theologies of Significant Insignificance Share Joylessness

    Frank Schaeffer
    9 Nov 2014 | 6:35 am
      Today's secular science of human insignificance inspires its own theology. This secular theology assigns us a contradictory groveling insignificant, significance. We have evolved to a high enough level of ethical consciousness to understand that we're guilty as charged, and are merely insignificant and yet, morally culpable destroyers of life. We may not be saying "Lord have mercy" so often these days, but we're still muttering "I'm unworthy!" As with past theology, a vast oeuvre of secular iconic art is dedicated to keeping us in our place. The old and new theologies of significant…

    5 Nov 2014 | 5:16 am
      The Republican Party base is white evangelicals. So no wonder the GOP lies about the country, the economy and the president worked. The folks who base their lives on religious mythology have spent lifetimes being trained to believe lies. And if you point that out then they kick into victim mode and denounce people who question them as persecutors. Last night they won. Lies won. As the New York Times noted: "Republican candidates campaigned on only one thing: what they called the failure of President Obama. In speech after speech, ad after ad, they relentlessly linked their…

    Frank Schaeffer
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:06 am
    Can you think of a worse idea than evangelicals, who believe they are serving God by killing Muslims, fighting Muslims who think they are serving God by killing Christians? The US government should crack down as hard on both the evangelical freelance American mercenaries going to Iraq to fight ISIS and on American Muslims heading overseas to fight for ISIS. These people who want to fight in the name of Jesus or Allah are all a threat to us. On BBC Radio 4 (Newshour, October 20, 2014) a journalist on the news program interviewed an American evangelical ex-US soldier who was in Iraq…

    21 Jul 2014 | 1:15 pm
    Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen made waves in her Congressional testimony last week when she argued that social media and biotech stocks were over-valued. She also said that the price of junk bonds was out of line with historic experience. By making these assertions in a highly visible public forum, Yellen was using the power of the Fed's megaphone to stem the growth of incipient bubbles. This is an approach that some of us have advocated for close to twenty years. Read more: Financial Crisis, Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, Wall Street, Housing Bubble, Janet Yellen, Business News

    Netanyahu's insistence on passing a bill that will define Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people is as disgraceful as his denial that Israel is not an occupying power. If the bill were to pass now or in the future, it would blow up what's left of Israel's democracy and destroy rather than save the Jews' last haven for which they have yearned for centuries.
