Hermann Lederle's "Adaptation," 2015, is massive. Measuring five and a half feet by ten feet, this totemic monument doesn't just envelop you, it anchors you to the ground.
Last week, three large adult industry STI testing and treatment facilities were served subpoenas demanding the release of adult performer medical records dating back to 2007.
It's a hard road, the one that we walk after our children die from a drug overdose. It's a walk that numbs your feet from the miles of isolation and grief. I'm only one of thousands.
When I came across the photo series Nobody Walks in LA, I was speechless. Photographer Alex Scott spent two years capturing photographs of a completely deserted city for a project that was 10 years in the making.
It was 3 a.m. and my cell phone was blowing up. The Twitter handle Twothousandswifteen was now following me. TaylorSwiftUpdates had favorited my tweet, with copious re-tweets by the likes of Tator Swift and Dazzling_Swift. Why the eff was I being digitally accosted by a gang of Taylor Swift devotees?
We know that the Clean Water Rule is on solid legal ground and backed by more than 1,000 scientific studies showing how streams and wetlands are vital to the health of our rivers, lakes, and bays.
Covered California Chief Peter Lee has claimed that the state doesn't need health insurance premium regulation because Covered California is a tough negotiator with the health plans. A new study casts doubt on that proposition as researchers reported that Covered California health insurance plans have...
The live aspect of our business is just one of the many reasons that television news is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it for the thin-skinned. And in the hours after we found out that Adam and Alison's killer was someone who had been a journalist, I had one thought -- he wasn't one of us.
A picture may say 1,000 words, though there is possibly another story lurking just outside the frame. This is certainly the case with the images featured in "The First with the Latest! Aggie Underwood, the Los Angeles Herald, and the Sordid Crimes of a City."
July was hot. It was the hottest July on record, but more than this: it was the warmest month ever recorded on Earth. Let that sink in a moment. The first seven months of 2015 were all record breakers, and 2015 is on track to take the record for warmest recorded year.
When Barack Obama took office, word went out to every federal agency about New Orleans: get creative and do whatever might be necessary to help the city recover. Unlike his predecessor, the president recognized that a new kind of federalism was required to help New Orleans come back.
Home Care Workers,
Home Care Workers Minimum Wage,
All labor has dignity, especially when it enhances the well-being of the sick among us. Protecting the rights of home care workers is to defend the dignity of not only the worker, but the patient as well.
One day, you realize how absurd your current mindset is, that this shit doesn't matter. You let your demons go, knowing that, perhaps, sharing your story can help some other chubby, goofy, socially-isolated, sensitive kid getting bulled in America who feels like no one in the world cares about him.
Last weekend I spent 90 minutes watching Sanders give a speech.....and I was stunned! Stunned 'cause I agreed with everything that he said....everything.
I'm ashamed to say the first $3,700 of my student loan took nearly three years to pay off. And not because I lacked funds. It just wasn't a priority. I figured the loan would get paid off eventually so what was the rush? (Not my brightest thought.)
"No more anchor babies!" "We'll make the illegals build the wall!" "Repeal the 14th Amendment!" Whatever leads us to our next president, I fear there will be nothing inspirational, sublime, or hopeful about it. The hateful hounds are already loose, and they are very, very loud.

"No one is leaving this valley. The road is blocked at both ends by the fire, so stay put! It's gonna get really hot and windy. Do not shut your vehicle off!" said the fire chief.
George W. Bush,
The failure of the strongest government in the world was of historic proportions. But faith and interfaith communities made history. They were the first responders, if not the only help, for most people over the course of several weeks. After 10 years, their work with survivors continues.
There was a time when we would spray paint the word 'PRESS' on the side of our vehicles in places of conflict so that the combatants would know exactly who and where we were. We used our press passes as both real and perceived badges of honor and safe passage. Now? Not so much.
Wine and apps aren't a solution to the bigger problem, but a little optimism during these dry times can't hurt.
