Anyone that has passion for music, whether you are a musician yourself or you are just an avid listener, knows the power that it has to transform, connect and help people overcome anything.
Bouncers and door guys do not wake in the afternoon and think of ways to ruin your night.
Occupy Wall Street,
This is not Zimbabwe. It is Detroit. Yet, you'd never know there was a problem this big in our own backyard because there's hardly anything at all in the media on the subject. And, why should there be? It's only the single-greatest economic collapse in American history.
Detroit Emergency Manager,
In a column that ran in the Detroit Free Press on Monday morning, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette laid out a weak and hypocritical argument regarding his opposition to marriage equality in Michigan.
Enrolling your child in a charter is making a bet that the school will be in business as long as you want to send your child to it. If you lose the bet, you have to know that losing was always a possibility when you made the bet in the first place.
2. The Curmudgeons: originally hail from Canada, the Northeast, or the Midwest, and virtually roll their eyes at any precipitous snow-related hand-wringing.
The major reversal from deep decline to economic growth occurred despite Republican opposition to President Obama's proposals, repeated GOP threats to default on our debt obligations, and an incredibly harmful 16-day government shutdown. And not only have Republicans stood in the way of Democratic policies, but they're now attempting to take credit for the recovery itself.
Diet And Nutrition,
Readily available calorie information is crucial for consumers to be able to make informed food choices throughout the day as they get their food from a variety of venues. Our nation is facing rising rates of obesity and chronic disease that continue to push health care spending higher.
The region is flooded with deliciousness that much of the rest of the country hasn't even heard of.
Alex MacLean has seen Detroit from the sky at various stages since 1980. The large green-spaces below, for example, were once crowded neighborhoods and business districts in a city's footprint that is large enough to fit Houston, Boston and Manhattan.

Black Voices News
The same systems and organizations that have frozen us out for years now want to dictate and advise us on how we should engage to fight for our freedom.
While these proposals are encouraging, and show some sign of progress, they are not nearly enough. Today, households headed by a female and women over 60 are the two poorest demographic groups in the United States.
That word is admittedly a scary one. Most civilized, sane people don't want to be called homophobic. It doesn't mean that you're murdering gay people. It doesn't even mean that you're a homophobe. But...
Detroit hip-hop artist has garnered underground buzz in recent years as a member of the group Ugly Heroes with Apollo Brown and Verbal Kent, along with other collaborative projects, but now he's ready to take his own leap as a solo artist.
Life is about moments, whether you're standing next to a cameraman waiting for Clint Eastwood to walk out of a barber shop or you're making sure that nobody walks in front of a New York skyline in Troy, Michigan.

I hope our leaders can, as iO's mission states, "think broadly" enough to let go of rigid, behaviorist notions of what education means. I hope they will heed the many stories like this one that prove the dramatic, turn-around impact of the arts on "under-performing" schools.
Our cars reflect us, our values and styles, our economic decision-making -- and our perception of our personal economy. So, what does the 2015 Detroit Auto Show reflect about how the consumer sees the economy and what they value?

"The Midwest -- American beer's ancestral seats -- finally stealing the spotlight back from the craft brew-sodden coasts."
Mering is making something closer to modern day chamber music tinged with an indie rock/folk feel it. It's eerie, yet beautiful, and its music coming from a vulnerable place. It's outside the box, but not weird; influenced by experimental music of many ages throughout musical history.
