Human sexuality is complex. And porn is a facet of it that still incites ambiguity in me -- I don't have it all figured out.
If the title of this article is vapid to the point of absurdity, that's because it is indeed a trite and possibly ludicrous way to describe the bloodshed in Gaza. Sadly, it's the truth, and the reality that both Hamas and Israel are to blame for the civilian deaths in Gaza is something neither side wants to admit.
To some, Jason is simply the latest in a long line of journalists who have been treated terribly by the Iranian government. To others, he's recognizable from sporadic in-person encounters or his Washington Post byline. But to me, he's J -- my good friend that also happens to be a stellar journalist in Iran.
The media is slowly changing and now many unconventional beauties and ways of life are being recognized: non-skinny body shapes, curly and dark hair, bronze/darker skin tones, assertive women, non-aggressive men and many others.
Bhagat's accessibility and trustworthiness, and indeed, his popularity, sometimes make it difficult to detect or denounce the serious lapses in his judgement.
We need to start demanding a little more patriotism from these corporations. If they want to keep benefiting from everything our great country has to offer, they need to start showing a little more loyalty to the people who live and work in America.
Very soon the Federal Communications Commission will either empower minority voices on the Internet and help close the digital divide, or it will make it easier for communications giants to silence and exclude those communities from the free or low-priced content now on the web.
As a journalist dedicated to reporting on animal issues, nearly all of them are brimming with news-worthy elements: poverty, climate change, land-ownership issues, gender imbalance, rural plight, global trade, corruption, and blatant abuse of power.
Acts of disparagement usually begin with objectification: misperceiving women as mere objects. The bulk of the mass media apparatus encourages this by sending the message that women matter only for their looks and youth.
Don't expect to learn much about the creative process from this documentary, even though it surfaces in the story. Some people are simply born that way -- though I don't think you have to arrive dead to be gifted.
The viewers have spoken. The reason no one wants to watch it is because although it is still 1982 for the producers at London Live, it is 2014 for the rest of London.
It's actually kind of fun to see modern day portrayals of parenting, because the style is so vastly different than in generations past.
Online stories often have an eternal shelf life that holds no geographical boundaries. The more that traditional media and brands collectively embrace this new normal, the more these challenges will become opportunities for us all.
To my mind, Jimmy Cannon was the greatest sports writer who ever lived. I read his columns in the New York Post avidly and religiously. When he wasn't writing about sports, he was musing, offering his personal, mostly one- or two-liner opinions, about anything that hit his off-the-charts observant eye. Most had little to do with sports.
In the age of bite-sized lists, tweets, and pithy "tl;dr" wrap-ups, we're losing the ability to engage deeply with subjects. Hoax sites have learned our diet and how to disguise themselves as food. The only way to fight back is to change what we eat.
Shouldn't I say something nice here about Jeff Bezos? Bezos? Yes, inventor of Amazon. You mean the bully, beating up on Hachette, and Hachette's poor authors? The same. Why be nice to him? Because, mon vieux, he's done something we should all be grateful for.
So what's going wrong? Well, here's a list of ways you can suck the life out of a PR pitch and piss off the people you decided to send it to.
If you don't have the opportunity or bandwidth to write, request to sit down with a journalist -- completely independent of any other agenda. Ask them what their day is like, what their job entails, what makes a good story for them and so on.
