The New Hampshire primary is four months away, and as any political wag will tell you, it's a contest that tends to "break late." Back in 2008, in fact, the primary broke late very memorably, with Hillary Clinton prevailing just a day and a half after being all-but-completely written off in the state. Flash forward to today, and New Hampshire has, in the early days of the campaign, turned into the testing ground for Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential viability. So what should Clinton do? Well, according to "one small contingent of family allies," who are also idiots, she should panic and do something rash for no real good reason.
The United States has the highest per capita rate of gun ownership in the world and the highest incidence of gun deaths in the developed world. Yet a toxic mix of history, culture, politics and money is preventing -- and will continue to prevent -- the U.S. from significantly restricting the private ownership of firearms.
On the surface, Sanders looks like a concerned 74-year old grandfather who has spent his political career serving a state that is 95 percent White. But go a little deeper and you will find that there is much more to the man who some believe has what it takes to pulverize the political machine.
Jobs that involve people skills but don't require prolonged educations should rise in status. Perhaps the cafes of the future will feature highly paid waiters serving lattes to impoverished lawyers.
Bing Crosby was 12 years older than Frank Sinatra, but their careers pretty much overlapped for the 37 years from 1941 to 1977, when Crosby died. They formed a mutual admiration society and appeared together on TV and radio and, most memorably, in the 1960 film High Society. So why the disparity in the degree to which they are remembered?
Now, the concept of "going to the gym" has been increasingly overshadowed by niche fitness classes. All of them promising to be the best workout you will ever get on planet earth. These classes also come with pretty package incentives, which are absurdly overpriced and can hardly be considered motivation to join.
As the refugee influx continues unabated, it is gratifying to see that our humanity is finally showing signs of life. Our leaders are at last heeding what their voters are telling them and starting to question the pandering to anti-immigration voices.
I want you to learn at a very early age to be comfortable talking about your anxieties, struggles and fears. Most importantly, I hope these eight things help you live an authentic life with the understanding that you're never alone.
Journalists try to gather information. Protesters try to push buttons. Sam Dorman's admission that he was trying to push a button on Pelosi and provoke the response he got is all the evidence we need that he was in protest mode, not journalist mode.
A true winner, as Trump claims himself to be in life, would go all-in. Now. Immediately. But, Trump is not a true winner. He is an insecure, whining showman. A wimp.
As a firearm owner, I've researched, studied, and enjoyed sport-shooting for years; however, I hold no romantic ideas about firearms: They are tools of death. Education is about life while firearms are about taking life. There should be no confusion about which we should support on college campuses.
The loss of my fertility is not going to define me. I do not want people to feel bad for me. I don't want people to question why I need to do IVF because I got pregnant so quickly the first time. I don't need questions about everything we have tried.
"I'm a grinder....I've never taken more than a week off in my adult life. I truly believe work is a virtue, it gives you purpose. I love my family, love my grandkids."
It is an untenable situation, an insult to the institutions -- Federal Police, MPF, House of Representatives -- and one that jeopardizes the fight against corruption. Resign, Cunha.
I have high-functioning autism. I was diagnosed at age three. A lot of people on the spectrum do not go to college, or are unemployed, or do go and may not succeed. I was one of the ones who thrived.
In implicating Trump as a bigot and, by association, the audience as cohorts or sheep, the media, especially the photo media, thoroughly missed the most curious and unscripted moment of this dispiriting campaign.
The fact is, these standards are good for everyone. That's why none of the efforts to repeal the standards this year--that's zero--have succeeded. And for the sake of our students, I'm proud to say I'm confident they never will.
The fate of women in Afghanistan has been the moral linchpin for the continued occupation by U.S. and NATO forces since the presidency of George W. Bush. But according to experts and women across the war-torn country, little has changed for women there despite upwards of $1.5 billion spent to empower women and girls.
If none of the Republicans were swayed after Sandy Hook, what are the chances now? The only way they'd vote for gun control would be if corporations were getting shot because those are the only "people" they really care about.
When I lay down in my comfortable apartment in Budapest, Hungary, all I could see in my mind are images of babies and little children lying on the dirty floor of Budapest's railway stations, or a damp field near the border waiting for their transfer to a new, safer and better life.
With Bernie Sanders as nominee, Democrats won't have to endure endless scandals and defend against real or fabricated controversies. Benghazi might be politically motivated, but the FBI investigation and other scandals are serious. Although Bernie's success is bolstered primarily by his record and his bold message, Clinton's issues will help him become the Democratic nominee.
When you complain productively, you seek to restore effectiveness, trust, and integrity. You confront only once, and you follow through to resolution. At best, you end up with a new agreement that closes the matter.
If I'm not really familiar with Gaga and our interests are probably quite different, what in the world could I possibly have in common with her? The commonality that links me and Lady Gaga is this: We were both raped. And we both seem to find some healing in the telling of our story.
Professor Žižek shares his deep admiration for Malcolm X, whose insights Žižek believes reached the height of contemporary philosophy.
It seems that quite a few tech items are irking vacationers this year. Travelers claim that the presence of technology and social media over-sharing takes away from the experience as a whole.
Unlike those who've taken to social media to express their disgust over Cosmopolitan Magazine's crowing of the Kardashians as "America's First Family," I've failed to understand the big to-do about the headline on the cover of their November issue. Love or hate them, the Kardashians embody what our country has come to represent to the rest of the world; vanity and excess.
Even given the policy analysis failures of Trump's positions, other leading Republican contenders for the presidency are far more clearly referring to mental health as an excuse to dodge gun control rather than develop a functional system.
All of those things I worked so hard for in my twenties and achieved? I watched them get ripped away from me almost immediately.
Practice the following five exercises on a weekly or bi-weekly basis and get rid of that aching back.
While focused on Qatar, the campaign also targeted other Gulf states and prompted other activists to focus on high-profile construction projects like sites for Western museums and universities in the UAE. It also motivated countries across the region to tinker with their labour systems.
If I'm judgmental of you, just because of how you breathe and who you are, that anger will consume me and I can't be myself. When folk hate or reject LGBT people, it affects the person who is doing the hating.
