Katrina and Lowry debate whether a) beheadings and media war whoops forced Obama's hand; b) he gets a boost or blame in November; c) he'll escalate if Bombs-without-Boots fails. What now happens to his desired pivot to Asia, climate, inequality? Ray Rice too is tackled by tape. Is a video worth a million words?
This has nothing to do with privacy. I'm so tired of people blabbering on about how we need to respect people's privacy. Sexuality shouldn't be a private matter. It certainly isn't for straight people.
We know it's important not to confuse day-to-day weather patterns with climate, which measure variations of things like temperatures and humidity over long periods of time, but it's clear that these disasters are made more powerful by global warming. The pain is only going to get worse for us and for future generations, unless we act now.
It's not about polar bears and saving the trees (unless you like that sort of thing). It's about the millions of people around the world who are being hit hardest by a problem they didn't create.
The scientific debate about whether human-caused global warming exists is long over. The remaining window of time for the needed transformation is short, and the only real issue is how we respond. This is where U. S. leadership is most critical.
Thousands of union members will link arms with environmental activists, to demand action from global leaders to reverse the effects of climate change. At first, that might seem strange -- the labor movement and environmentalists are not often characterized as natural allies.
Rock stars come and go, however one is about to make his triumphant, albeit low key return -- which will be the absolute reverse manner in which he forged his legendary larger-than-life Big Apple debut in the waning days of Nixon's America and Watergate.
In different areas of the world, there may be better players, better games, and better pure basketball. But New York City is still the Mecca. When you tell someone, "I played streetball in New York City," they'll immediately know it toughened you up.
In the attempt to start a citywide dialogue with "the types of questions a child would ask, but few adults actually do," Spanish-born graphic designer, Marta Ibarrondo, is inviting New Yorkers to join her movement at The Unzipped Truth.
It's time to disrupt the media status quo on climate silence, connect the green weather dots and invite the rest of America to join the conversation.
I invite you to join the crowds in New York or in your city at the historic People's Climate March this Sunday -- or else try any number of these five ways to join the march in spirit, and speak out beyond this weekend to save our planet.
The People's Climate March on September 21st will be a turning point for the climate movement. But, if we're not careful, it could also mean a lot of waste, and that means more greenhouse gases.
We need to stop ever more costly and risky extraction from places such as deepwater sites or the Arctic. We need to stop granting subsidies for fossil fuels - something that many of our governments have committed to do but have yet to put into practice.
The climate movement is home to quite a few who go the full-on vegan, composting, skip-coffee-because-it's-bad-for-the-climate route. But going green is only good if it actually gets somewhere.
On Saturday, TEN will stage its third annual Literacy Across Harlem march. I spoke Joe Rogers to learn more about the march, his organization's work, and what advice he'd give young scholars.
The soccer stadium project proposed early in the year for the new Manchester City Football Club's home in the South Bronx became an instant hot topic in the community that had leaders and activists talking and taking action.
Most friends told me not to fret -- it was my birthday and if ever there is a night for drunken debauchery, this was it.
There's no telling when Two Gentlemen of Verona will come around again. So if an incarnation this good is available, that's even more reason to tune right in.
