The long-promised airstrikes on the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria began this week as uninterested members of Congress crossed their fingers and left town. But not before they held hearings on whether the Secret Service could have done a better job protecting the White House from a guy with a pocketknife.
R. Christie and Lamarche focus on Congress -- why it voted 3:1 for Obama's Syria-ISIS plan and who'll make the grade in the upcoming midterm exam? And they split on the greater 'existential threat' to U.S.: Ron says ISIS, Gara says climate. Three beheadings vs. "There's no Planet B"?
As a service to the deceased person's families -- often on both sides of the border, some with United States citizenship and some not -- the work is a remarkable study in simple decency and human compassion.
Muslims, like many other groups that have come to America, are in their immigrant infancy. They have yet to grow the deep roots -- in politics, in the media, in neighborhoods -- that would demystify them to the wider American culture.
Although he has spent many, many words on Singapore, Jim Sleeper doesn't appear to care a fig about the country and its residents. He isn't upset about oppression in Singapore because oppression is bad in and of itself. He's upset about oppression in Singapore because it makes the institution at which he teaches look bad.
Criticizing the president during wartime is fine, as long as it's based on reality and facts. Hypocrisy, on the other hand, isn't fine. You either support the president, any president, in wartime or you don't. You can't have it both ways.
I think reporters such as Fareed Zakaria and Charlie Rose should stop pressing the Iranian presidents on human rights issues, if they are looking for remotely convincing answers.
Our job is to ensure that his efforts continue on with the next AG, whoever he or she may be. We in the civil rights community must strongly advocate maintenance and continuance of a Justice Department that will fight aggressively in these areas.
arketing has long been a place that lost souls like me from every industry could find a home. A warm home. A fun home that valued new and big ideas -- never-been-done-before ideas -- over measurable, proven results.
Allegations of horrific and widespread abuse of Florida prisoners -- a story broken recently in a series of articles by the Miami Herald -- serve to remind us that we cannot, and should not, forget about prisoners. Take, for example, Darren Rainey and Randall Jordan-Aparo, who purportedly died in unthinkably cruel ways at the hands of their guards.
Before the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, recedes in the rear-view mirror, let's be straight with ourselves about what the events surrounding his death tell us about race in America.
We are trained by the media tycoons to stay in tuned with what they deem relevant. With facts like these, it is not shocking that we run to our own individual social media accounts for comfort and acceptance.
The pressure to create memorable, authentic native programming that emotionally connects, converts, and energizes will only increase -- and the most nimble, creative, and opportunistic brands will be best positioned to thrive.
He's played with the greats, from Frank Sinatra to Stevie Wonder, and has a slew of number one hits to his credit, including his version of "On Broadway."
Yesterday's New York Times' comic by Heng, titled "India's budget mission to Mars" seems in poor taste. Qhether meant to be funny or ironic, the racial, national and classist stereotyping is apparent.
"Is that shirt supposed to be funny?" she asked motioning to my satirical "Caucasians" T-shirt. And then she said, "I'll f*cking cut you." This is the part you don't really see in its full glory on the segment.
On Fox News a Muslim who killed a co-worker in Oklahoma and who remains in police custody represents a much bigger story than a suspected anti-government assassin who killed a cop and remains on the run, eluding hundreds of law enforcement officials while terrorizing a Pennsylvania community.
