    This week we saw how dissimilar appeals to our better and lesser angels look. For the former, there was Jimmy Carter's grace-filled press conference on Thursday revealing that cancer has spread to his brain. He reflected proudly on the work of his Carter Center, which, among many other things, has nearly eradicated the misery-causing guinea worm disease. But the week began very differently, as Donald Trump released an immigration plan that would end birthright citizenship, a proposal that would involve reverting to before the 14th amendment, ratified in 1868 to grant freed slaves citizenship…

    George Zimmerman, the Florida man who shot and killed an unarmed black teen in 2012 but was acquitted of second-degree murder charges, took to social media this week to call President Barack Obama an "ignorant baboon."  Zimmerman made the comment in a series of tweets posted on Wednesday and Thursday while referencing the shooting deaths of two journalists on live television. In one, Zimmerman quoted the president's remarks on gun violence while also insulting him: “the # of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen…

    Would stricter gun laws have saved the lives of Alison Parker and Adam Ward? Probably not. Would stricter gun laws have saved the lives of many other people? Probably. That’s a fair reading of the latest research -- and something to remember now that Wednesday’s killing of the two television journalists, during a live interview, has politicians and pundits talking about gun violence again. So far, the debate has played out in a familiar fashion. From the White House, Press Secretary Josh Earnest renewed the administration’s call for “commonsense” gun measures,…

  • My Q and A With Petteri Lahtela, Whose OURA Ring Will Track Your Sleep

    19 Aug 2015 | 1:36 pm
    Petteri Lahtela is the CEO and co-founder of OURA, a wearable device -- in the form of a waterproof ring -- that measures our well-being as we sleep. In answer to my questions, he shared his insights on the restorative power of sleep, the future of sleep technology, and how wearable devices can enhance the body-mind connection. What is the OURA ring, and why did you see a need for it? Our goal was to create a simple and comfortable way for people to learn how to be fully charged at the start of every day, feel well and be ready to perform at their best. We needed to gain a long-term view on…

  • Lockdown Lifted After Savannah State University Shooting

    27 Aug 2015 | 9:54 pm
    Reports of gunfire at Savannah State University in Georgia on Thursday forced school officials to place the campus on lockdown for several hours as police secured the area, university officials said. The lockdown was lifted around midnight on Friday, more than two hours after it was issued, and there was no active shooter on campus, an employee with the department of public safety said. She declined to give further information. One person was hospitalized after being shot and wounded near or inside the student union, the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper and broadcaster WSBV-TV…
  • 5 Things You Didn't Know about Yaya DaCosta

    27 Aug 2015 | 9:49 pm
    By Crystal Shaw King When we first met fresh-faced beauty Yaya DaCosta, who became the runner-up on Tyra Banks's America's Next Top Model back in 2004, it was clear then that it wasn't the last time we'd be seeing her long legs, lovely smile and fluffy Afro on small screens. The Ivy League educated model and trained dancer had too many intriguing qualities not to turn that 15 minutes of fame into a long-lasting career. And that's exactly what she's done. Today, with some 14 films later (including a scene-stealing performance in The Butler) and just as many television roles under her belt,…

    By James M. Dorsey The Turkish Football Federation (TFF), in a demonstration of the inseparable ties between sports and politics, has effectively declared its support for renewed Turkish-Kurdish hostilities designed to enhance the prospects of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling party in forthcoming snap elections. With armed Kurdish youth effectively taking control of at least one predominantly Kurdish city in south-eastern Turkey, Turkish war planes pounding Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) positions in the region as well as in northern Iraq as well the People's Defence Forces (HPG), the…

    27 Aug 2015 | 9:17 pm
    When Ted Cruz dismissed Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's questions to him on immigration as something a "liberal journalist" would ask, the right-wing Media Research Center applauded it. After all, that evasion tactic is straight from the MRC playbook. The MRC reinforces to conservatives that any tough question would want to ask them is, by definition, a "liberal" question and, thus, does not need to be answered. After all, conservatives know that they will never face tough questions when they appear on Fox News. Here's how this works in practice, as seen through assorted MRC blog posts and…

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:32 pm
    HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii's Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case involving building one of the world's largest telescopes on Mauna Kea. Opponents, who are against building the Thirty Meter Telescope on land that many Native Hawaiians consider sacred, are challenging a permit that would allow the telescope to be built on conservation land on Hawaii's Big Island. Lawyers delivered opening arguments in the case Thursday, and justices questioned why the state department that issued the permit did so when there were ongoing challenges to the project. The judges also discussed the impact of…
  • Activists Counter Federal Reserve Gathering With Push Against Interest Rate Hikes

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:28 pm
    Progressive activists and economists who want the Federal Reserve to prioritize jobs and racial justice brought their case to the central bankers' summer meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on Thursday for two days of teach-ins and protests. The activists’ immediate goal is to prevent the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates until wages rise more significantly. The two-day event, Whose Recovery: A National Convening on Inequality, Race, and the Federal Reserve, is organized by the Fed Up campaign, a coalition of groups led by the nonprofit Center for Popular Democracy. It…
  • A Group Of Chicago Residents Are Starving Themselves To Save A School

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:24 pm
    A group of Chicago residents finished the 11th day of a hunger strike Thursday in an attempt to move the Chicago School Board to make a decision over the fate of a local school, Dyett High School.  The group of 12 has been going without solid food since Aug. 17, even after medical professionals expressed concern for their health. While Dyett was once slated to close, the Chicago School Board is now set to weigh plans to reconstitute the school, although this process has been rife with delays. The protestors -- part of the Coalition to Revitalize Dyett High School -- want the board…

  • As Refugee Tide Mounts, No One Is in Control

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:18 pm
    Adapted from recent remarks at the Ditchley Foundation. LONDON -- The office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees recently published the statistics for 2014. At the end of last year we reported that 59.5 million people were displaced by conflict in the world. Roughly two-thirds were internally displaced, and one-third refugees. In some conflict situations, the internally displaced live much worse lives than refugees because their government, which is supposed to protect them, can be part of their problem. Those figures mark an increase of 16 percent from 2013, and an increase of 60…
  • Rewriting the Human Story

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Oh, sacred planet. The terror of climate crisis is a long time in the making. As I read about the mass mobilization forming around the upcoming U.N. climate change convention, which is likely to accomplish far too little -- because what's needed is change at the roots of civilization -- I feel a desperate impatience, a tearing at my soul. What can I do that's bigger than anger, bigger than a demand for governmental and corporate entities to make changes they are essentially incapable of making? Maybe I can help rewrite the story of civilization, which means unwriting the present story. From…
  • Lesson Learned From Rebuilding New Orleans: Consider Our Changing Climate

    27 Aug 2015 | 2:57 pm
    Ten years ago this week, my hometown was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. My mother's, sister's, and other family members' homes were destroyed by the floodwaters. We all wondered: Could our unique and beloved city survive--and thrive again? A decade later, the answer is yes. New Orleans has remade itself in many ways as a more sustainable and resilient city. It has built new elevated and more efficient public schools as neighborhoods come back. To manage water, it has turned to both hard infrastructure solutions like sea walls and pumps, as well as to softer "green" infrastructure such as…

    Dear Senator Sanders, You've come a long way without my advice, but now that you are running for president, you may be interested in these suggestions: You've taken progressive positions on "decent paying job programs," such as investing in repairing our country's public works, raising the minimum wage, strengthening labor laws, opposing the good-job-exporting, corporate-managed trade treaties such as NAFTA and WTO, and creating a Youth Job Corps. Now you need to make major addresses in greater detail on each topic before large audiences. The media coverage of these events will be very…

    WASHINGTON, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Democrats are confident they will have enough votes to protect the Iran nuclear deal in the U.S. Congress, but they face an uphill task to avoid President Barack Obama having to use his veto power to ensure the agreement's survival. "We're getting close," said Senator Richard Durbin, who as Minority Whip is the Democrats' chief vote counter in the Senate, referring to the 34 Senate votes needed to sustain an Obama veto if Congress initially rejects the deal. "I have really been heartened by the positive response from our caucus," he told Reuters on Thursday.

    I've spent a lot of time on my own recently. I was told by the adults in my life that this is a rite of passage and part of growing up. The belief that spending alone time is important for emotional growth however is something of an ancient practice. Meaning, even though I was physically by myself during my "alone time," I could fill my solitude with endless social media static and television watching. Today, instead of existing in the natural quiet, it is all about finding digital ways to mute the silence. This behavior supports the notion that the way my generation unplugs from the real…

I told Dean about a new program not yet on the air, funded by the Carnegie Corporation and which I had seen presented by a talented broadcaster named Joan Cooney to a meeting of the board of National Educational Television - NET, the precursor to PBS.

    As family members, coworkers and friends begin to mourn the loss of two Virginia journalists killed on air, supporters have already found a meaningful way to honor their legacies. Reporter Alison Parker, 24, and photographer Adam Ward, 27, were shot and killed by a former station employee on Wednesday morning while broadcasting for Roanoke news station WDBJ7. Mourners say each had bright futures ahead, both professionally and in their private lives, and hope that scholarship funds set up in their memories will at least allow their dreams to live on through others. For Parker, who started…
  • The 'Appalling' Ways The Media Framed The Narrative After Hurricane Katrina

    27 Aug 2015 | 12:45 pm
    When Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on the New Orleans coastline and its residents in 2005, the desperation and bungled relief effort quickly became one of the biggest media stories of the year. However, many criticized media's role, claiming reports that were released in the hurricane's aftermath more than missed the mark.  "It was appalling," Lilly Workneh, HuffPost's Black Voices Senior Editor, told HuffPost Live on Monday. "It was a tale of two cities, there was a very different narrative, a black Katrina narrative that was resounding and that was appalling to see played out in…
  • Jorge Ramos Producer Speaks Out About Press Conference Incident

    27 Aug 2015 | 11:44 am
    Jorge Ramos and his producer at Fusion, Dax Tejera, had tried for months to score an interview with Donald Trump. After coming up empty, they decided to fly to Iowa to catch the Republican presidential candidate at Wednesday’s press conference.  By now, most Americans know what happened: Ramos, a well-known and respected figure in Hispanic media, was ejected from the press conference when he tried to ask a question about Trump's immigration proposal, and Trump told him to "go back to Univision." Tejera, who was seated next to Ramos when the incident occurred, spoke to The…

  • Activists Counter Federal Reserve Gathering With Push Against Interest Rate Hikes

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:28 pm
    Progressive activists and economists who want the Federal Reserve to prioritize jobs and racial justice brought their case to the central bankers' summer meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on Thursday for two days of teach-ins and protests. The activists’ immediate goal is to prevent the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates until wages rise more significantly. The two-day event, Whose Recovery: A National Convening on Inequality, Race, and the Federal Reserve, is organized by the Fed Up campaign, a coalition of groups led by the nonprofit Center for Popular Democracy.

    27 Aug 2015 | 5:13 pm
    Many of us have read the New York Times article "Inside Amazon - Wrestling Big Ideas in a Bruising Workplace." If you haven't, you can find the article here. Some former employees and other workplace experts have been weighing in. I decided to take a look at Amazon's annual report to see what I could find about how Amazon portrays itself to the world. The following appears as the opening statement of the 2014 report: A dreamy business offering has at least four characteristics. Customers love it, it can grow to very large size, it has strong returns on capital, and it's durable in time - with…

    If it's time to seek a business loan for your company, you're probably worried about whether or not you can actually make it happen.

Chances are, you've tried, but it turns out that the labyrinthine back-office and myriad of choices have likely flummoxed you.

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:05 pm
    In seeking startup funding, many entrepreneurs are now being actively pursued by Chinese investors and VCs who are eager to put their capital into U.S. companies. In 2014, it was announced that Misfit, a wearable device maker, received $40 million in capital that included Xiaomi, the Chinese smart phone company. Other recent startups that have received Chinese capital to the tune of $2.3 billion in total include Peel, Tango, Ark and Quixey. In May 2015, Haiyan Capital announced its third disbursement of $50 million into U.S. tech startups. In fact, when it involved companies like Peel,…

  • Dad Allegedly Robbed Bank To Pay For Daughter's Cancer Treatment

    27 Aug 2015 | 1:07 pm
    A Michigan father accused of robbing a bank told police he did it to pay for his daughter's cancer treatment. Brian Randolph, 23, is accused of robbing the Vibe Credit Union in South Lyon, Michigan, on Aug. 12, according to WXYZ-TV. He was arrested two days later in Detroit. This week, Asia Dupree, the mother of Randolph's daughter Brailynn, told WXYZ that her daughter's insurance had been abruptly canceled after Dupree didn't renew it once Brailynn turned 1. Dupree said she wasn't aware she had to do that. The insurance helped pay for chemotherapy for Brailynn's retinoblastoma, a…

    The West Coast of the United States has always emanated a romantic vision of rainbow sherbet sunsets, velvety golden hills, healthy living, and progressive thinking. The psychedelic Renaissance of the 1960s played a large role in this imagery as Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters roamed around the country, sharing their California sensibilities (and LSD) with those who were willing to be "turned on."

  • Trump: 'Making America Hate Again!'

    27 Aug 2015 | 4:09 pm
    Trump's official campaign slogan is "Make America Great Again!" Perhaps he should change it to the headline above. The Huffington Post has made an editorial decision to put Trump articles in the Entertainment section instead of the political section. This seemed like a good idea at the time. Admittedly he is the class clown -- and the schoolyard bully. Oddly, also the teacher's pet. But his toxic mix of egotism, cynicism and racism simply isn't entertaining. It is, however, still a spectacle. His now infamous tirade about Mexicans being criminals and rapists is well-known. Recently two…

    There is a rising tide of nativism washing over the United States at this particular moment. We have seen such waves recurrently in our history. In the 1840s, it was the Know-Nothings, who hated Catholics and opposed Irish immigration and were even responsible for riots and other acts of violence. In the 1920's, it was the turn of the Ku Klux Klan. Even while these hooded terrorists attacked African-Americans in the south, they also campaigned against immigration on racial and religious grounds. The eastern and southern Europeans then entering the country, they maintained, were impossible to…

You told me I could do good in the world. Any ideas?" I told Dean about a new program not yet on the air, funded by the Carnegie Corporation and which I had seen presented by a talented broadcaster named Joan Cooney to a meeting of the board of National Educational Television - NET, the precursor to PBS.

    When Donald Trump was just out of school and had begun working for his father, Fred Trump, my late mother-in-law was an office manager in the Trump office in Brooklyn. This was in the late 1960s. I was a freelance writer at the time, beginning to make some headway, and Donald must have become aware of me via office conversations. He said to her, "I don't envy him anything, except that he lives in Manhattan." It is actually touching, in a way, to think of today's Donald Trump as once having been another young kid with Manhattan dreams. According to my mother-in-law, the senior Trump was widely…

    27 Aug 2015 | 2:51 pm
    Matt Singer posed a timely question today: Why is it that the original programs made by Netflix -- the place that perfected binge-viewing -- aren’t necessarily all that binge-able?  By downplaying the importance of individual episodes in favor of longform narratives, the company has also downplayed the propulsive storytelling style and shocking cliffhangers that define the best binge-watch shows. A television show structured as a one giant 13-hour story can be highly absorbing. But without those big hooks and twists at the end of every episode, it’s very difficult to make it…

With the 2015 VMAs days away, let's remember that 10 years ago Diddy hosted, Green Day took home Video of the Year, Kanye West nabbed Best Male Video, and The Killers were named Best New Artist.

Shockwaves went through the fashion industry in the early nineties when Eve Salvail first appeared on the runway with a shaved head, her head bare save for a curled dragon tattooed on her scalp. Her hair, or lack thereof, stood in direct contrast with the lengthy, ultra-feminine locks of the era's supermodels -- think Christy, Cindy, Naomi, Stephanie, and long, swingy sheets of hair. Two decades later and long hair is still the default for new models, whose agents praise its versatility: With fashion shows and editorials requiring…

    For the last 20 years I have gone to the same hair stylist in New York City. He is a calm, quiet, tranquil man of few words. His process is meticulous and time-consuming. He looks at my dry curls. I am washed twice, conditioned and returned to his chair for an hour of precision cutting. My coiled, frizzy hair is dried and then flat-ironed piece by piece so it hangs pin straight. Only then does he begin his dry cut. One section at a time and when he gets to the front one hair at a time. It's tiring sitting under the lights with little conversation as he stealthy moves behind me. Every few…

    A Wisconsin preschooler celebrated her fifth birthday with a special tribute to her father, who died of cancer.  Olesia Clark was 2 years old when her dad Kyle passed away in December 2012 after a 17-month battle with brain cancer, her mom Elizabeth told The Huffington Post.  "Olesia and Kyle were very close," Clark said. "They spent a lot of time hanging out, going for long walks and reading books. He even took her to the gym with him where he worked part-time where she would sit behind the desk with him to greet clients." Around the time school ended last year, Olesia…

  • Another Huge Sewage Spill, Another Beach Closure In Hawaii

    27 Aug 2015 | 6:59 pm
    HONOLULU (AP) - For the second time in a week a popular Hawaii beach was closed Thursday after sewage from a treatment plant was discharged into the ocean. A million gallons of treated but not yet disinfected wastewater was discharged from the East Honolulu Wastewater Treatment plant, closing Sandy Beach and its surroundings. The closure comes a day after beaches near Waikiki were reopened following a similar issue. Hawaii American Water, the private company that runs the treatment plant, said the incident happened Tuesday after an underground electrical cable that feeds power to their…
  • Humans or Non-Human Animals -- Who's More Rational?

    27 Aug 2015 | 6:19 pm
    It's been an interesting summer for animal welfare issues. Cecil the lion's murder by an American hunter who paid local trackers to lure the popular animal out of the protection of a Zimbabwe national park so he could be killed and beheaded as a trophy fueled international outrage. So did the killing of Blaze the grizzly bear in Yellowstone Park after the mother and her cubs were surprised by an off-trail hiker, who Blaze instinctively attacked and then ate. (Actually, like a good mom, she buried part of the hiker's remains so her family would have food later.) Prompting far less attention,…
  • New Report Highlights Koch Brothers' Role In Hurricane Katrina Damage

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:19 pm
    WASHINGTON -- A new report from the Democratic opposition research group American Bridge's Bridge Project describes the way Charles and David Koch, the influential conservative billionaires, put their vast resources into actions that exacerbated the impact of Hurricane Katrina and stalled the Gulf Coast’s recovery. The report, released Thursday, highlights the Koch brothers' influence on the region before and after the storm, including constructing and operating pipelines that destroyed wetlands south of New Orleans and attempting to obstruct legislation that would have aided the…
  • Earth's Resources for 2015 Have Already Been Used Up

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:03 pm
    Global Biocapacity / Global Footprint Network Humanity is placing inordinate demands on nature, and it just keeps getting worse. In 2000, humanity had exceeded its "ecological budget" by October. This year, "Earth Overshoot Day" was August 13, according to the Global Footprint Network, a California-based environmental think tank. Earth Overshoot Day marks the moment "when humanity's annual demands on nature exceed what Earth can regenerate that year." This is yet another wake-up call that sustainable global development hasn't taken root despite two decades of effort. Humanity currently needs…

    Sea levels worldwide rose an average of nearly 3 inches (8 cm) since 1992, the result of warming waters and melting ice, a panel of NASA scientists said on Wednesday. In 2013, a United Nations panel predicted sea levels would rise from 1 to 3 feet (0.3 to 0.9 meters) by the end of the century.

  • Lesson Learned From Rebuilding New Orleans: Consider Our Changing Climate

    27 Aug 2015 | 2:57 pm
    Ten years ago this week, my hometown was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. My mother's, sister's, and other family members' homes were destroyed by the floodwaters. We all wondered: Could our unique and beloved city survive--and thrive again? A decade later, the answer is yes. New Orleans has remade itself in many ways as a more sustainable and resilient city. It has built new elevated and more efficient public schools as neighborhoods come back. To manage water, it has turned to both hard infrastructure solutions like sea walls and pumps, as well as to softer "green" infrastructure such as…

    You drink it, you play in it, you're made of it, but do you protect it? While it may seem to be everywhere, our planet's water resources are in danger. By 2030 global demand for water will outstrip our natural supply by 40 percent. That means that in only fifteen years our beautiful planet may not be so blue anymore. Overwhelming? It can be. Critical? Yes. Preventable? You bet. Less than one percent of our Earth's water is fresh and accessible, and for millions of people, finding access to clean water is a daily challenge. I work at 1% for the Planet, a network that joins businesses all over…

    27 Aug 2015 | 1:55 pm
    Ten years ago, the nation and the world were horrified by the catastrophic loss of life and property in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The human toll was devastating. But so was the toll on thousands of companion animals throughout the Gulf coast. An estimated 250,000 dogs and cats were displaced or died as a result of the storm. Animal rescue groups rushed to the scene and committed themselves to the daunting challenge of saving as many lives as they could. The ASPCA worked closely with the Louisiana SPCA and the Humane Society of South Mississippi, sending dedicated staff to work on the…

U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson in Fargo issued a temporary injunction requested by North Dakota and 12 other states halting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers from regulating some small streams, tributaries and wetlands under the Clean Water Act.

    27 Aug 2015 | 7:24 pm
    A group of Chicago residents finished the 11th day of a hunger strike Thursday in an attempt to move the Chicago School Board to make a decision over the fate of a local school, Dyett High School.  The group of 12 has been going without solid food since Aug. 17, even after medical professionals expressed concern for their health. While Dyett was once slated to close, the Chicago School Board is now set to weigh plans to reconstitute the school, although this process has been rife with delays. The protestors -- part of the Coalition to Revitalize Dyett High School -- want the board…

    Katrina was among the worst natural disasters of the last 100 years of American history. Moreover, the failure of the strongest government in the world was of historic proportions. But faith and interfaith communities made history. They were the first responders, if not the only help, for most people over the course of several weeks. Today, after 10 years, some of these organizations still continue their work with survivors. Being a neighbor and providing services are the reasons why religion is frequently rated among the top trusted institutions in the U.S. while media and the congress are…

"We're getting close," said Senator Richard Durbin, who as Minority Whip is the Democrats' chief vote counter in the Senate, referring to the 34 Senate votes needed to sustain an Obama veto if Congress initially rejects the deal. "I have really been heartened by the positive response from our caucus," he told Reuters on Thursday.

At the end of last year we reported that 59.5 million people were displaced by conflict in the world. Roughly two-thirds were internally displaced, and one-third refugees. In some conflict situations, the internally displaced live much worse lives than refugees because their government, which is supposed to protect them, can be part of their problem.

Syrians, people who mostly speak no German, and whose culture is so different, people who have never lived in a democracy and who are currently absolutely destitute and desperate. Taking one million refugees is like taking one million unemployed people who are not educated in your country and whose skills most likely do not match those of your labor market. So what could make Germans want to take these refugees? Because from what I have seen it is not…

    27 Aug 2015 | 2:51 pm
    Matt Singer posed a timely question today: Why is it that the original programs made by Netflix -- the place that perfected binge-viewing -- aren’t necessarily all that binge-able?  By downplaying the importance of individual episodes in favor of longform narratives, the company has also downplayed the propulsive storytelling style and shocking cliffhangers that define the best binge-watch shows. A television show structured as a one giant 13-hour story can be highly absorbing. But without those big hooks and twists at the end of every episode, it’s very difficult to make it…

    Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer has been chewed out since he killed Cecil the Lion in in Zimbabwe in July. Now animal-rights group PETA has turned it into their own big game with a Halloween costume that depicts a dentist getting attacked and eaten by the king of the jungle. The costume, called "Cecil's Revenge," sells for $139,99 and includes a bloody lab jacket with a stuffed lion pouncing on the back, according to a press release. Customers can add to the effect by accessorizing with their own toothbrush, dental drill or bow and arrow. "As animals continue to die in agony at…

    TWITTER IS THE MANSON FAMILY I NEVER HAD The social media Guru who said "Twitter should be used in moderation" could also probably stop at eating one Cheeto, or even open their eyes while sneezing. It's a mindless addiction that screams "try and stop me!". Now, assuming you're like most of us on Twitter, you live in a bunker, and manifest symptoms of mild autism and megalomania.

  • Irrational Men

    27 Aug 2015 | 12:55 pm
    Everyone is insecure, even Donald Trump or Tom Brady. Within every bombast lies a cowering inner child. Imagine making a new version of The Exorcist where a Donald Trump like character suffers from pre-adolescent possession. Chicken Little would be right on target about the sky falling. Under this theory Woody's Allen's next film should be a sequel to Irrational Man, Irrational Men which shows the human side of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his crew. Somewhere in Raqqa, the reputed ISIS stronghold Baghdadi will be wandering around a former prison which has been turned into a palace. But Abu is a…

    27 Aug 2015 | 12:13 pm
    Ransom House announced a $20 million dollar advance for Donald Trump's newest book, Apologizing Is for Losers. "From the response we've gotten from the major sellers, we anticipate that the first edition will be sold out before we go to press," said Fiona Langdon of Ransom House. "How does this fit in with his previous books like The Art of the Deal?" asked This Reporter. "Oh, this is a major departure," said Langdon. "Trump's other books were what we call aspirational, for readers seeking guidance on creating wealth. In Apologizing is for Losers, Trump takes the gloves off. No more Mr. Nice…
  • When Living Large isn't a Compliment

    27 Aug 2015 | 11:54 am
    It started as a fun golf game with another couple we enjoy. It ended with me wanting to stab myself with a knife. Life is like that sometimes. We finished our round with a good score and returned to the club house for dinner. As we waited for the food, the man casually mentioned that his wife and my husband were lucky because they didn't need to lose weight. I know it was an innocent remark by a good, middle-aged man but my ears heard this: "You are a gross, undisciplined whale and so incredibly fat that you should put a sack over your body and hide in the women's lounge. Too bad you don't…

  • Netflix, Binging And Quality Control In The Age Of Peak TV

    27 Aug 2015 | 2:51 pm
    Matt Singer posed a timely question today: Why is it that the original programs made by Netflix -- the place that perfected binge-viewing -- aren’t necessarily all that binge-able?  By downplaying the importance of individual episodes in favor of longform narratives, the company has also downplayed the propulsive storytelling style and shocking cliffhangers that define the best binge-watch shows. A television show structured as a one giant 13-hour story can be highly absorbing. But without those big hooks and twists at the end of every episode, it’s very difficult to make it…

The couple of six years was vacationing with Kayla's family when he popped the question at a waterfront bar called Old America Fish Co.  "I turned around and he was getting down on one knee," Kayla told WECT News. "As he opened the ring box, the ring fell out of the box and fell through the cracks on the deck and into the water. I didn't even get to see it before it dropped."  "I was…

    Bonnie Fuller

    Demi Lovato, you are one smart, strong woman and you are now standing up against censorship of Cosmopolitan, the young women's magazine, whose cover you're gracing on the Sept. 2015 issue. Demi Lovato, you took to Instagram on Aug. 5 to fight back against a campaign of censorship against the world's leading magazine for young women: Cosmopolitan. You rightly pointed out that it's very important to "show women there's nothing wrong with embracing their bodies and sexuality" and that "for the first time in a long time I feel incredibly empowered and the most beautiful I've ever felt on this…

    Madonna, you are so smart to keep creating the music and videos that excite you. The ageist critics who tell you to stop dancing and looking hot at 56 are the real old folks, no matter what their ages. Madonna, the dissers who are trying to define or judge you for your age -- 56 -- are silly and small-minded. And in many cases, sexist! I'll throw that in for good measure, because it's true. You just released what is arguably the hottest, funnest and most compelling video of your life for your single, "Bitch I'm Madonna", with guest appearances by Beyonce, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West,…

    Bonnie Fuller
    15 Jun 2015 | 2:35 pm
    Say it isn't so. Of all the deaths 'Game of Thrones' has inflicted on us since the show started, this one was the worst. Here's why. [WARNING: Major spoilers ahead!] Game of Thrones fans are mad as hell and we aren't going to take it -- after a season full of twist, turns and terrifying deaths, the fifth season finale hit fans where it hurt with perhaps the most gut wrenching death yet. And if this one sticks, if this character truly met their ultimate end in the season finale, then the GoT creators have made a catastrophic mistake. Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) should NOT have been killed off.

Miley Cyrus didn't just pose naked on the cover and inside the pages of the new issue of Paper magazine. She also did something far more astounding. Miley Cyrus spoke out about her own sexuality. She revealed that she is bisexual and even beyond that -- that she is very comfortable with enjoying her own sexuality.

    8 Jun 2015 | 10:29 am
    In the most shocking departure from the books yet, Shireen gets sacrificed in a vile move that now proves Stannis Baratheon is totally unworthy to sit on the Iron Throne. In a season of startling departures from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, Princess Shireen's depraved murder at the hands of her father, Stannis Baratheon, was the most disturbing. Really, disturbing doesn't even begin to describe the horror of watching a power-hungry father and his weak wife, Selyse, send their bright, gentle little girl to be burned alive at the stake. And all in the name of some hocus…

  • Sometimes a Movement Needs a Leader: The Bernie Sanders Campaign

    Joseph A. Palermo
    23 Aug 2015 | 2:51 pm
    According to a recent above-the-fold, front-page article in the New York Times by Jason Horowitz, Senator Bernie Sanders "bellows" "snarls" and "glares" his way through campaign appearances. His candidacy, Horowitz writes, amounts to little more than giving "disaffected Democrats" the opportunity "to vent their anger at the list of national ills they believe are caused by big business and its conservative allies." The dismissive tone of such reportage tells us more about what ruling elites would like to sweep under the rug than it does about anything of substance relating to Sanders' critique…
  • Trans-Pacific Partnership: Obama Sides With the Wrong People for the Wrong Reasons at the Wrong Time

    Joseph A. Palermo
    25 Jun 2015 | 1:34 pm
    By siding with the Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in passing "fast-track" trade authority as a step toward signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), President Barack Obama triangulated against labor unions, environmentalists, consumer activists, and the base of his party. The 60-38 vote in the Senate to give the president (and the next president) more executive power to negotiate trade agreements, which garnered the support of thirteen Democratic Senators, followed months of bitter in-fighting among Democrats. President Obama not only expended his own "political…
  • Jeb Bush Enters the GOP Presidential Debate -- But What Are They 'Debating?'

    Joseph A. Palermo
    16 Jun 2015 | 7:14 am
    John Ellis Bush has formally announced his 2016 campaign to bring another Bush to the White House. He's banking on the amnesia of the American people, hoping we've already forgotten his brother's catastrophic presidency. Now that the Republican party's Great Establishment Hope has entered the crowded field of candidates it raises the question: What, exactly, are Bush and the other GOP presidential contenders actually going to "debate?" All of them (including Bush) agree on handing over the largest share possible of the country's resources and public assets to private corporations and banks.

    Nothing illustrates better the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican war hawks who call themselves presidential candidates than their attempts to whitewash the history of how this nation went to war in Iraq. John Ellis "Jeb" Bush stood by his brother's side while he demolished a nation of 28 million people in the heart of the Arab world he knew nothing about. Out on the stump, Jeb and other GOP candidates try to shift responsibility for the worst U.S. foreign policy disaster since the Vietnam War from George W. to President Barack Obama. Jeb and Co. claim that everything was…

    Joseph A. Palermo
    29 Apr 2015 | 12:23 pm
    We hear politicians across the ideological spectrum talking about the "problem" of wealth and income inequality in America, yet few offer any concrete solutions. The rioting in Baltimore shows that inequality is not an abstraction or a talking point, but a real sociological phenomenon that is causing real suffering and instability in African-American communities across the country. Police brutality in Ferguson or Baltimore or Oakland represents the failure to bring real economic reforms that might have a chance of ameliorating the suffering of the poor and unemployed. Yet the political will…

    In the dog days of August, the news channels have turned themselves into the Trump show. Bernie Sanders rouses the biggest crowds in obscurity while Trump floods the air waves. Commentators still dismiss Trump as a summertime fling, a bad boy escape before voters settle down with a serious choice. But Trump is more than a celebrity. He has earned his high disapproval rates, but he also enjoys support across the Republican party. His ugly posturing over immigration expresses the fears and anger of much of the Republican base. And unlike his rivals, he speaks to the discontent of American…

They were joined by Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, and members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, led by Keith Ellison (D-Minn) and Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz). Sanders announced they were introducing legislation to raise the federal minimum wage to $15.00 an hour. Sanders also reiterated his call on President Obama - joined in a formal letter by Elizabeth Warren and 18 other Senators -- to give…

    Robert L. Borosage
    1 May 2015 | 2:56 pm
    Tweeting that "America needs a political revolution," Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders threw his hat into the race for the Democratic nomination for president this week. Sanders is in many ways the mirror image of Hillary Clinton, the prohibitive favorite in the race. She has universal name recognition, unlimited funds and a campaign operation overrun with political pros. He is not widely known, has little money, and has never run a national campaign. Sanders is not easy, not blow dried and not scripted. But in a populist moment, he is the real deal -- a full throated, unabashed, independent,…

    Robert L. Borosage
    30 Apr 2015 | 11:03 am
    It's time for Hillary Clinton to take a position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement and the fast track authority designed to ramrod it through the Congress. Hillary has been non-committal to date, with many assuming she will eventually support the president whom she served as Secretary of State. But now the pressure to take a stand is growing. President Obama decided to call out his opponents, turning the escalating battle over fast track and TPP into an intra-party back-alley knife fight. AFLCIO President Rich Trumka, head of the 11 million member labor federation, delivered a…

Carrying signs reading "Hiring: A President who will sign a $15 +Union Executive Order," these workers are calling on President Obama to lead, asking him to put government on the side of workers by issuing an executive order that would give preference in government procurement and licensing to companies that…

    Noch eine Talkshow zu Flüchtlingen? Zu Beginn der gestrigen "Maybrit Illner"-Sendung fragte man sich, was in dieser Show noch gesagt werden konnte, was nicht bereits in unzähligen anderen geäußert worden ist. Doch überraschend erhellend brachte diese Sendung auf den Punkt, was mit der deutschen "Willkommenskultur" schief läuft. Da war zunächst Grünen-Stadträtin Ines Kummer aus Freital in der Nähe von Heidenau. Sie hat einen Jungen aus Ghana bei sich aufgenommen. In wenigen Worten brachte sie auf den Punkt, was zurzeit in Deutschland abläuft: "Vielen fehlt einfach die humanitäre…

    David Ropeik
    27 Aug 2015 | 2:19 pm
    We are the only species known to deny overwhelming evidence -- about the dangers of smoking -- in ways that actually put us in greater danger. The emotional nature of human risk perception can sometimes produce a literally self-destructive irrationality. Non-human animals don't make such mistakes.

    27 Aug 2015 | 10:32 pm
    George Zimmerman, the Florida man who shot and killed an unarmed black teen in 2012 but was acquitted of second-degree murder charges, took to social media this week to call President Barack Obama an "ignorant baboon."  Zimmerman made the comment in a series of tweets posted on Wednesday and Thursday while referencing the shooting deaths of two journalists on live television. In one, Zimmerman quoted the president's remarks on gun violence while also insulting him: “the # of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen…

The lockdown was lifted around midnight on Friday, more than two hours after it was issued, and there was no active shooter on campus, an employee with the department of public safety said. She declined to give further information.

  • 5 Things You Didn't Know about Yaya DaCosta

    27 Aug 2015 | 9:49 pm
    By Crystal Shaw King When we first met fresh-faced beauty Yaya DaCosta, who became the runner-up on Tyra Banks's America's Next Top Model back in 2004, it was clear then that it wasn't the last time we'd be seeing her long legs, lovely smile and fluffy Afro on small screens. The Ivy League educated model and trained dancer had too many intriguing qualities not to turn that 15 minutes of fame into a long-lasting career. And that's exactly what she's done. Today, with some 14 films later (including a scene-stealing performance in The Butler) and just as many television roles under her belt,…

  • Thank Right-Wing Media Activists for Ted Cruz's Dismissal of Tough Questions As 'Liberal'

    27 Aug 2015 | 9:17 pm
    When Ted Cruz dismissed Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's questions to him on immigration as something a "liberal journalist" would ask, the right-wing Media Research Center applauded it. After all, that evasion tactic is straight from the MRC playbook. The MRC reinforces to conservatives that any tough question would want to ask them is, by definition, a "liberal" question and, thus, does not need to be answered. After all, conservatives know that they will never face tough questions when they appear on Fox News. Here's how this works in practice, as seen through assorted MRC blog posts and…

  • Médicos y pacientes bailan en Sierra Leona para festejar el alta de la última paciente de ébola

    27 Aug 2015 | 12:44 pm
    Dar un alta hospitalaria es siempre una alegría, para el paciente, claro, pero también para los médicos y demás sanitarios que le atienden. Lo extraño es que la felicidad sea tan grande que hasta entren ganas de bailar. Esta vez la ocasión lo merecía: el gran hito que tocaba celebrar el pasado 24 de agosto es que una mujer llamada Adama Sankoh fue dada de alta del Centro Internacional de Tratamiento Médico del Ébola, en el norte de Sierra Leona, y con su recuperación el país africano alcanza el hito de cero casos de ébola confirmados desde el brote se inició en mayo de 2014.

  • Pilar Lima, una política valenciana sorda se incorpora al Senado

    27 Aug 2015 | 11:32 am
    El Senado tiene una nueva incorporación, y no es una cualquiera. La senadora de Podemos por las Corts Valencianes Pilar Lima trae esperanza a cientos de miles de personas que están infrarrespresentadas allí donde se decide la esencia de su presente y la posibilidad de un futuro. Lima siente que representa "a la gente que tiene ganas del cambio" y "dentro de ese colectivo hay personas con idiosincrasias muy diversas". La suya es que es sorda.

  • Un barco con cientos de personas a bordo naufraga en el Mediterráneo frente a Libia

    27 Aug 2015 | 10:45 am
    Este es un jueves negro para quienes se lo juegan todo por la esperanza de una vida mejor. Un barco cargado con cientos de personas, migrantes y demandantes de asilo, ha naufragado frente a la costa de la ciudad libia de Zuwara y las autoridades han informado de que podría haber cientos de muertos.

Secondo le credenze religiose di costui, se i soccorritori avessero toccato la ragazza per salvarla, l'avrebbero disonorata a vita.

    Ellen Bravo
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    Our opponents refer to paid sick days as "fringe benefits," an "extra" handed out by employers when they can afford it.

  • Ellen Bravo: Paid Sick Days Would Move Women Closer to Equality

    Ellen Bravo
    27 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    Our opponents refer to paid sick days as "fringe benefits," an "extra" handed out by employers when they can afford it.

    Sanders is unwilling to break with the U.S.-Saudi alliance that has done such damage to both the Arab people and the American people. Now, we have a full-fledged, Israeli-Saudi alliance, and it must be music to the ears of pro-Israeli journalists for Sanders to be calling for U.S. backing of further Saudi domination.
