Building a bigger fence may play well around the cable-TV studio desks where pundits gather to yak in faraway New York and Washington. But down in El Paso, it's a foreign concept.
Released last fall and created with a budget of more than $100 million, Rockstar Games boasted $1 billion in sales in the first three days of a game that pushes social boundaries by allowing players to kill, steal and destroy in exquisite ways, albeit virtually.
Gaza Human Shields,
Hamas Human Shileds,
Human Shield Argument,
Israel Human Shield Argument,
The argument "But they use human shields!" has now become a hollow justification for innocent casualties and atrocities in warfare (instead of an explanation), and while many of us suspect that Hamas may be guilty of this, Israel's massive bombardments have now crossed some ethical line.
In the late 1700s there were about 427 free black men and 48 slaves living in Providence, the capital of Rhode Island. By 1825, Providence had 1,414 free black men and four slaves.
As humans, we spend a lot of time looking back on our lives, analyzing where we've been and why. Then we spend a lot of time wondering what our future holds and figuring out how to get there.
Society will argue that you do not have a career until that cash money starts flowing in. But the starting line of a career cannot be measured in dollars or hours of work. Your career begins in that mysterious little pink blob resting inside your head -- it all begins with your thoughts and ideas.
I am proud to call HuffPost my family, and will always be grateful for how everyone there made me into who I am today (the good parts, at least. My irrational fear of humans dressed as animals and my mild cake frosting allergy should not be attributed to my time with the company.)
You will find an occasional musician who purposely plays badly, or a writer who ignores grammar, but only in the visual arts is training in the traditional skills of the profession systematically and often institutionally denigrated.
If you want to understand the real college crisis in rising college costs, you don't need to look to the Ivy League or even your state's flagship university. Simply take a look at your local community college.
As an OG of Facebook, I feel inclined to offer advice. There are rules to this shit, as Biggie once said. Thus, I've written a 'Liking Manual,' a step-by-step booklet to clean up the Feeds, and help tweetsters get their digital game on track.
Don't approach college like it's supposed to prepare you for anything. Take classes because they interest you, not because they'll check off some box in a future employer's job readiness assessment.
Do you think I'm somehow unaware of the fact my skin is on fire, my bra straps feel like they're made of barbed wire, and in a few days I'm going to be molting?
There is evidence that students today, perhaps sensing the alternative narrative of cooperative excellence, are looking for something different than the elite-making system. Their aspirations could fire a movement for democratizing reform.
Whomever said your 20s are easy should be shot. Seriously. How many of these 20-something problems can you relate to?
"You'll just have to take this class over the summer." Cool. I can do that. I made it five years, 10 semesters, and four majors without having to take a summer class. Well, I started my first summer class this Monday, and I am here to report back to you what I have learned about summer classes.
Modern Day Slavery,
Global Food Security,
Although today is the first ever World Day against Trafficking in Persons, the issue of human trafficking is hardly a novel one; rather, this crime has sadly survived and thrived for thousands of years.
Brenau University's Women's College,
Bryn Mawr College,
Cedar Crest College,
College Of St. Benedict,
St. Catherine University,
Sweet Briar College,
First Job After College,
First Job Out Of College,
Moore College Of Art & Design,
Saint Mary's College,
I don't know about you, but I always get tickled pink when I learn about a person getting hired, maybe it's the recruiter in me. And there's something extra special when it's the first job after college.
I've been following the problems of Dr. Terrence Carter in Connecticut with some interest. It seems that the Dr. might not have an actual PhD. Not even a super-easy PhD, but a PhD he just bought. Faked the whole thing. How can somebody do that, I wondered. Seriously, how do you do that?
New York Times,
I sometimes lie awake at night cursing the heavens, wishing that God had never forged a love of the written word from the steel of my very soul and instead forged something that would have allowed me to invent Candy Crush.
Handling money in the summer is like putting a load of socks through the laundry. Somehow, you lose one, never to be seen or worn again. It isn't a big deal for the most part because it's just one sock. But then you lose another couple, and one day your feet are freezing and you are left to do without.
