It's past time for PETA to explain what happened to Wilbur Cerate's dog. Because until we know more, all we can say about this terrible story is that a family is grieving, and some professionally sinister mustache-twirlers working for the meat industry have that much more ammunition in their war against animals.
If you're seeking charming, often winsome melodies you can't get out of your head, stirring performances by the leads with fine work from the supporting cast, and a book that will intrigue and ultimately move you, run to the Kennedy Center box office.
For me, this is the ultimate homecoming, not only because this is where I and my accent were born but because HuffPost is very firmly rooted in a Greek tradition of bringing people together and facilitating interesting conversations.
We have been engaged in Afghanistan longer than any conflict in American history. Over 13 years. And, on Veterans Day, when we honor those who have fought for our country, I was curious to know if Americans could locate the place our service members have been the longest.
Nonviolent direct action is a necessary, vital, and wholly American tool in forcing meaningful, permanent, transformative action from our leaders and fellow citizens. We are not concerned if this inconveniences you. Dead children are more than an inconvenience.
President Obama on Thursday made it clear that, if a gridlocked Congress won't do its job on immigration reform, he will do that job himself. Now we should hope that he can also turn attention to an immigration challenge that falls under his own branch of government: immigration courts.
Referring to the role of the artist, he said, "If he just follows the leader and accepts what's been done before, naturally, that can be brought to a very high skill. But if he wants to change it in some way and do it differently, then it jumps up to the major league." To Gene, Michael Jackson was one who made this leap.
So far, the Supreme Court has been much more cautious about same-sex marriage than it was about inter-racial marriage a half-century ago. Its two rulings in June 2013 -- overturning DOMA and California's Prop 8 -- reflected the basic conservatism of the Roberts Court.
The problem with finding an inspiring career is that, from the outside, it seems like whim, luck and 'who you know.' But the good news is there is actually a process to navigate a seemingly impossible task -- and -- it can be fun.
As Washington leaders charge headlong into a clash over President Obama's plan to issue executive orders on immigration, can we take a minute and talk about what executive orders are?
Supporters of gentrification claim that the benefits outweigh the consequences. So neighborhoods become safer, cleaner and nicer. But for whom?
If we expect our nation to be prepared for the potential outbreak of a disease, we need a Surgeon General on the job. It's the Surgeon General who can make sure that science and established facts dictate our response, rather than politics or innuendo.
This is an opportunity to educate the general population that discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression, which encompasses tens of millions of people, is illegal and harmful to the bottom line. This is an opportunity to humanize and overcome ignorance and fear so that there is no desire to deny employment in the first place.
Even if a cost-effective HIV/AIDS cure and vaccine were here now, we still would most likely not get to the end of this epidemic without the leadership of the next generation. To that end, it is my great honor to introduce the 2014 POZ 100, which celebrates youth power. Our fifth annual list spotlights the efforts of 100 unsung heroes under the age of 30.
"The National Press Club is a place where culture, as well as news, happens." That was the proclamation from Club President Myron Belkind, as he introduced a spirited International Cultural Evening.
M&G has stricken hundreds of families in this rural West Virginia region with fear. They're scared they won't be able to afford health insurance they believed they'd earned. A decision by the Supreme Court affirming the lower courts' rulings would relieve retirees like 78-year-old Tackett and restore justice in Point Pleasant.
This bill would bypass essential reviews, skip safety assessments, and fast track a dangerous project. This has sweeping implications for future generations. And yet it is entangled in the politics of the moment.
Today, we are at a different moment. For the first time, we heard from the president's mouth that he has deported people who should have not been deported, and defended his ability to stop those deportations.
