Longshot was once a celebrity. The four-year-old yellow Labrador Retriever riddled with gunshot wounds and left for dead in Virginia in December 2014 made national news. But now things have changed.
President Sisi should know that the world will be watching the court's verdict on Aug. 29, and his government's response to it. Media freedom in the region is at stake. And, as the Council of Europe has put it, "it will be the commitment shown to free speech which determines whether or not Egypt grows -- or shrinks [--] in the eyes of the world."
Low-wage workers around the country have sparked a movement for large minimum wage increases for a reason. And their proposed increases are phased in gradually over several years. It might behoove some of those commenting from the sidelines to stop calling them crazy.
Here are four excellent segments that show Oliver is becoming one of the most influential voices in our country to say loud and clear: No More Drug War.
Iran, like Iraq's Saddam Hussein, wants us to believe that it is close since that makes Iran both powerful (scary) and that threat provides great leverage in dealing with the rest of the world.
My analysis of the media coverage related to each mass shooting revealed a pattern. For every non-Muslim shooting suspect, the media never mentioned their religion. Moreover, in nearly every case, it was claimed that the mass shooters were suffering from some sort of mental instability.
If we are to solve the climate problem we need to focus our attention on policies and programs that are practical and politically feasible. Even if a second President Clinton had a Democratic Congress she would have trouble getting a carbon tax enacted.
Sarah Ellison, a former Journal reporter, wrote a highly regarded, captivating book, War At The Wall Street Journal, that captured the drama, intensity, corporate infighting, and financial deal-making that left the Journal in Murdoch's hands.
In an economy where corporate profits are at record highs while average wages have stagnated for decades, we don't have to choose between economic justice and common economic sense. It is possible to improve living standards for workers without bringing business to its knees.
With the viral voices of today's social media channels, I see checks and balances in play. Vocal consumers are forcing brands to grow a conscience. Integrity is the metaphorical yard stick for the average craft brewer and beer lover.
The process of change begins with us and ends with us. Through social media and grassroots movement we can unite our colors as we did on June 26, 2015. We can inspire American Dreams for generations to come before the riots begin, before the violence turns viral.
The Times and most other major publishers take care to label these ads as "paid posts," so as to try to preserve the editorial credibility of the paper and to honor its responsibility to readers. But no one should take much comfort in the (small) fine print.
If you want to have a successful newspaper or magazine or political campaign or online store, for that matter, you have to be able to communicate in video. Video literacy is as essential to the arrival of the Internet and smartphones as print literacy was to the arrival of the printing press 500 years ago.
It's Possible to Care About Cecil the Lion and Other Issues at the Same Time; Bob's Latest Twitter Battle with Dan Bidondi; The Bionic Dan Bidondi Bionic Italian Airlines; and much more.
Ever since Johann Gutenberg invented the printing press nearly 600 years ago now, there have been many in power threatened by people able to communicate freely, and they have worked hard to prevent that. The Zenger trial was a very bright event on a continually difficult journey.
I long ago reached the unhappy conclusion that when it comes to TV "news" in the post-millennium, virtually anyone who is poised, articulate and has good hair and teeth can do the job. All they have to do is be able to read what somebody else wrote for them on the teleprompter.
