The Republicans know the "woman card" well since they're the ones who invented it. They've been playing it since 1984 when the Democrats nominated Geraldine Ferraro for vice president, the first woman to make it onto the ticket of a major American political party. The Republicans had to deal with the unprecedented event of the sitting vice president, George Herbert Walker Bush, debating the first-ever woman vice presidential candidate. Since 1984, the GOP has seen women as little more than adornments to be used as political slings and arrows. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are only the latest manifestation. If Hillary Clinton is the nominee the cunning Republican strategists are guaranteed to turn up the volume to eleven on their sexist attacks. They can't help themselves.
Dear Mr. Buffett, if you believe that the Paris climate accord has put us on a path to rapid phase-out of fossil fuels, if you believe that the sun and wind will soon provide all the world's energy needs, there is little reason for you to say more. But I suspect you agree that more is needed.
While we fight to save our planet from the ravages of climate change through the Clean Air Act, international agreements, better fuel mileage standards and clean energy incentives, climate change is already happening.
From reproductive rights to paid family leave to sexual and domestic violence, our society neatly categorizes issues where women bear the brunt of the burden as "women's issues," turning them into problems for women and women's rights advocates alone to solve.
How the U.S. military restricts servicewomen from accessing abortion on military bases is a discriminatory scandal.
All defendants are charged with conspiracy to make false statements under oath in immigration papers, a federal felony punishable by up to five years imprisonment.
Wealth inequality is even more of a problem than income inequality. That's because you have to have enough savings from income to begin to accumulate wealth -- buying a house or investing in stocks and bonds, or saving up to send a child to college. But many Americans have almost no savings, so they have barely any wealth. Two-thirds live paycheck to paycheck.
Last night, 27 staff and patients were killed in an airstrike on Al Quds Hospital nearby. My friend Dr Muhammad Waseem Maaz, the city's most qualified pediatrician, was killed in the attack.
As part of a global community of journalists and editors who, at least in theory, strive to educate and inform, I was disgusted Thursday to come across a Glamour UK article that in one little gif-filled, navel-gazing story undermined Beyonce's "Lemonade" message.
Much as I applaud the historic diplomatic achievements the Paris Agreement represents, the treaty contains fatal flaws that threaten us and the planet.
Joining the Uber board represents for me an opportunity to have an impact on a global scale in a way that truly adds value to people's lives -- which are also priorities for us at The Huffington Post.
Sometime, between now and the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, there will almost certainly be a deal between the Sanders forces and the Clinton forces. The $64,000 question is: What are the forces of progress going to get out of the deal?
In Maryland: Yes, the "establishment" won. Yes, we will soon have an all-male delegation. I can certainly see how that looks from the outside. For those of us inside, however, this was about something other than "identity politics," which Congresswoman Donna Edwards derided as a Republican concept

Double Toasted's unique uncensored approach to the talk show format covers a broad array of topics, including film and trailer reviews, humorous insights on the internet's latest viral video, and discussions of pop culture topics.
Four days after the Columbine massacre, on April 24, 1999, I was on a date with my friend Philip in Atlanta when we were robbed by a teen with a stolen gun. He shot both of us and Philip was killed. And every spring, no matter how hard I try to enjoy the season, I'm reminded of that night. I can smell it.
Every time someone mentioned an infertility treatment, I nodded, and then I silently thanked god that I was a black woman and that there was at least one thing that I didn't have to worry about.
Even after Donald Trump's big wins on Tuesday, a majority of Republicans remain skeptical of his first policy suggestion, telling pollsters on their way out of the voting booth, as they have for months, that they want the immigrants to stay.
With all of the stress that comes with teaching, I think it's easy to forget all the amazing things I experience as a teacher that would never be the status quo in a "normal job."
Today's most successful companies, the ones that are "crushing it," started as a series of crazy ideas, followed by experiments to test just how viable those ideas might be. Experimentation is a crucial mechanism for driving breakthroughs in any organization.
Gun violence prevention activists have launched a petition calling for the Brady Campaign to take down its "hypocritical" new "Zero Minutes of Fame" video ad which spotlights the very mass shooters that the campaign is designed to obscure.
Richard Ben Cramer's book about the 1988 presidential campaign -- What It Takes -- was a classic about the psychology and talents required to climb the greasy pole. Time to update it in this political year.
If you're going through it, my prayer for you is peace and deep connection with the people you love -- your spouse first and foremost and your support system secondly. More than that, I pray that all of us, infertile or not, recognize that our value and our worth is wrapped up in something far greater than whether we do or don't have children.
Companies cut corners across a variety of public goods and services, often with tragic consequences. For example, in 2010, United Care, a company contracted by Los Angeles County to coordinate foster care, lowered standards for selecting foster parents to cut costs.
Encryption can be a tool for good and evil. It's the safest way for an enterprise to keep information safe from prying eyes and sticky fingers, but unfortunately it's relatively easy for a hacker -- and not even a very clever one -- to use it to force an ugly situation.
Remember that feeling of excitement as a kid when Mom or Dad said these three words: "You've got mail!" Nowadays, those three words make me think about bills I need to pay, crap catalogs I need to recycle and Meg Ryan smirking at Tom Hanks.
Zealous anti-choice activists who have long been pushed to the side of a movement trying to come across as kinder and gentler have suddenly found themselves welcomed to the Cruz campaign with open arms. Take Troy Newman.
IVF is a serious commitment. You don't hop on and off the bus. With each setback along this grueling and at times never-ending journey, I would begin the story over and over again in my head, but I never got around to completing it. Until now.
Sunday, April 17 was the designated moment. The world's leading oil producers were expected to bring fresh discipline to the chaotic petroleum market and spark a return to high prices. But far from restoring the old oil order, the meeting ended in discord, driving prices down again and revealing deep cracks in the ranks of global energy producers.
Mississippi's current political leaders travel to the beat of a different dumber. Whenever another state does something particularly outrageous that threatens to lead it to claiming the title of worst, Mississippi can be counted on to save it by doing something worse.
News media in India and across the globe are paying attention, with coverage of early and child marriage expanding rapidly in recent years. Unfortunately, some of these stories present child marriage in ways that create misunderstanding at best.
Nobody cherishes every moment. Some moments are magic. Others are shit. On a sleep-deprived/nothing-stops-the-crying type day it is quite possible that the moment ratio will end up at 80:20 in favor of shit.
