Animal "Euthanasia" Is Too Often Slaughter

Marc Bekoff | July 23, 2015 | Denver
In Australia, the commercial slaughter of millions of adult kangaroos for food results in countless dependent youngsters, also called joeys, left to suffer and die because their mothers have been killed.

Fight for 15 Keeps on Stepping

Robert L. Borosage | July 23, 2015 | Politics
The Fight for 15 movement is gaining momentum. It has won victories in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, San Francisco, Seattle and SeaTac. Yesterday, a New York State Wage Board formally recommended a $15.00 minimum wage for the fast food industry in New York. Governor Cuomo could move that to into law after reviewing it. The University of California just announced it would raise its minimum wage for several thousand workers to $15.00. The $15.00 minimum is likely headed to a referendum vote in the District of Columbia next year. Pressure is now building on the president to act. He deserves credit for issuing orders raising the minimum wage of contract employees to $10.10, and requiring contractors to obey various workplace laws. Now federal employees are striking for $15.00 and a union.

Alex Thiersch | July 22, 2015 | Politics
Stoner culture will always exist and there will always be brands to serve that market, but to continue moving the needle of public opinion among mainstream customers and voters we are going to need brands and industry leaders that target them, too.

Can't grandstanding politicians, maybe a few from each party, spotlight the problem and call on philanthropists to step up and fund local journalism? Or figure out something else to say? Even if it's just to acknowledge the tragedy unfolding in front of us?
