Denver TV Reporter Mindlessly Attacks Obama (AUDIO)

Jason Salzman | February 27, 2015 | Denver
To my way of thinking, Fox 31 Denver reporter Julie Hayden's repeated comments that Obama "doesn't love" America, doesn't even "like America," and in fact has "disdain" and "contempt" for our country, fall into the extreme/rude/bombastic category. And Hayden shouldn't be covering any story related to Obama, federal political issues, or, to be safe, any partisan political topic.

Westerners Continue to Have a Strong Connection to Public Lands

Ellis Richard | February 26, 2015 | Green
Call it an affinity, or a closeness--but whether it's the sawtooth ridges of the Grand Tetons or the cliff faces of Dinosaur National Monument, sooner or later something will grab you and refuse to let go.

My Q and A With W. Chris Winter, Sleep Whisperer to Some of the World's Top Athletes

Arianna Huffington | February 27, 2015 | Healthy Living
Perhaps more than any other group, athletes have fully embraced sleep as a performance enhancement tool. Top athletes are, of course, all about results. So there's no better place than the world of sports to see the tangible effects of sleep (including pre-game naps) on performance.

Let's Talk About Saving Central America

Kassia Binkowski | February 25, 2015 | Impact
In rural Guatemalan communities, less than 10 percent of students finish high school. This isn't the product of laziness or apathy. These desperate statistics are nothing more than the result of a fundamentally broken and exclusionary education system.

Go the Distance! Hiking With Your Dog

Cesar Millan | February 25, 2015 | Green
Learn about your dog's limits physically, take the heat into consideration, and have a time limit for your hike. If their tongue is hanging out of their mouth more than half way, it's a sign to stop and take a rest.

New Conservation Science Is Misguided and Too Much About the Major Problem -- Us

Marc Bekoff | February 23, 2015 | Denver
Anthropocentrism -- putting humans first and acting as if we're the only beings who count -- is a bad lesson for youngsters who will inherit the messes we leave. A more humble, right-minded, and less anthropocentric position argues for valuing and conserving nature because of its intrinsic value.

A Gun Violence Vaccine

Mike Weisser | February 23, 2015 | Politics
Vaccinations protect the human species against diseases for which there is no cure once the infection occurs. In this respect, vaccines become the cure for certain diseases through prevention, whereas we usually think of being cured as what doctors do to us after we get sick.

Wicked Tuna: NGS Supports Animal Abuse, Inhumane Education, and Poor Conservation Practices

Marc Bekoff | February 23, 2015 | Denver
I figured the series would run for one season and then be pulled in favor of something else that would be less brutal and more in line with good conservation practices.

Sweet 16

Michael Brune | February 20, 2015 | Green
Good things are worth waiting for. Local people had been trying for two decades to get permanent protection for Colorado's Browns Canyon (which has long been popular with whitewater rafters and other outdoor enthusiasts). Yesterday that dedication paid off when Obama designated 21,000 acres in Browns Canyon as one of our newest national monuments.

Does Colorado Care If Homeless People Vote?

Jason Salzman | February 19, 2015 | Denver
When Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams hits the media circuit and implies it's easy for poor people to get an ID, reporters should be sure to offer up the other side, invisible as it is to most of us. What it comes down to, Mr. Williams, is this: Do you want homeless people to vote?

Google's Expansion in Boulder Has Its Critics

Bob Wells | February 18, 2015 | Denver
Are Googlers any more or less lively and multidimensional than employees at our major science and tech research labs and our dozens of app-economy startups, which are already flooding downtown Boulder with cheery-looking Millennials?

A New Wave of Democracy, and How Corporations Are Trying to Silence Your Voice and Your Choice

Andrew Kimbrell | February 17, 2015 | Politics
Too often democracy has meant voting every couple of years for a candidate that is "the lesser of two evils." But now, citizens and their representatives all across the country are voting directly on major social and technology issues that impact their families and neighborhoods.

Personal satisfaction and serving others does go hand-in-hand. The general hopelessness about relationships and life I previously felt was like a sickness in my soul. Doing random acts of kindness is a giddy remedy I would recommend to anyone for these reasons.

My Q and A With Jonah Berger, Author of Contagious: Why Things Catch On

Arianna Huffington | February 15, 2015 | Media
Contagious: Why Things Catch On established Jonah Berger as a thought leader on a subject with big implications for the future of media: why we share. As The Huffington Post launches What's Working, an editorial initiative to double down on our coverage of positive news and solutions, I asked Jonah, a Wharton Business School professor, for his insights.
