Onward, Toward Plutocracy

David Macaray | March 25, 2015 | Business
Which outcome has the better odds of succeeding? The UAW forcing the Big Three to adhere to an "equal pay for equal work" format and return to a one-tier wage format, or the Big Three eventually implementing a third, fourth, fifth and sixth wage tier? Not to sound defeatist, but I think we know the answer.

I Drank So Much Soda as a Child That My Veins Collapsed

Andy Campbell | March 27, 2015 | Healthy Living
I'd just finished a Mountain Dew, my first love, which I drank whenever I was thirsty. My mom called me to the kitchen for dinner, and I stood up. But as I made my way across the living room, everything got dark. I could feel my heart throbbing in my ears, and then, I felt nothing.

Detroit Rapper Red Pill Channels Everyday Life on New Album Look What This World Did To Us

Kelly Frazier | March 24, 2015 | Detroit
Red Pill is not cool in your stereotypical rapper way. There's no flashy attitude or a sense that he constantly needs to be the center of attention. It's a bit of that Almost Famous/William Miller uncool mystique with him.

America Needs Labor Unions

Dale Hansen | March 24, 2015 | Politics
Considering that studies have found a direct correlation between the number of people in labor unions and the distribution of wealth, it becomes clear that if the Republicans' goal is to build a stronger, healthier economy for all Americans, then continuing to add obstacles to organizing is the wrong approach.

Introducing HuffPost Gratitude: Starting the Conversation on What We're Thankful For

Arianna Huffington | March 24, 2015 | Healthy Living
Gratitude has always been one of the most powerful emotions for me. And it's no coincidence that "grace" and "gratitude" have the same Latin root, "gratus." Whenever we find ourselves in a stop-the-world-I-want-to-get-off mindset, we can remember that there is another way and open ourselves to grace. And it often starts with taking a moment to be grateful for this day, for being alive -- for anything. That's why I'm delighted to announce HuffPost Gratitude, a new section in partnership with American Greetings, featuring stories that illuminate gratitude's transformative power to bring a much-needed dose of perspective to our lives. We hope HuffPost Gratitude will be a place to share not only personal stories but tools and tips that can help each of us tap into our own gratitude in ways that can make our lives, and the lives of others, more meaningful and more fulfilling. That's why we're kicking off the new section with a series around the theme "What I'm Most Thankful For."

World Renown Violinist Karen Gomyo to Perform Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 With the Detroit Symphony Orchestra

Kelly Frazier | March 20, 2015 | Detroit
If you really open yourself up to it, Mozart's music is anything but that. It's timeless, it's full of emotion, and it has everything to do with how we as humans feel, even today. In a world where most music burns heavy and burns out quickly, the flame of Mozart's music still burns as warmly as it did when he first wrote it.

Rep. John Conyers | March 18, 2015 | Politics
By strengthening the safety net and investing in 21st-century infrastructure, manufacturing, education, and environmental protection, the Congressional Progressive Caucus' "People's Budget" will create 8.4 million new jobs and give low- and moderate-income Americans a much-needed raise. And it's important to note that the CPC's budget achieves all this without breaking the bank.
