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"?
I'm not just dining from the dumpster to meet my needs though. I'm doing this to inspire America to stop throwing away food.
In Christie's world, taxpayers cannot afford $7.5 million for women's reproductive health care. But these same taxpayers are on the hook for the $7 million bill of his Bridgegate defense lawyers, who charge $350 an hour.
The real battle -- and the one we should be fighting -- is not over the economics of carbon, but over public funding of the basic research needed to make the transition to a fossil fuel-free economy.
From the creative juices flowing inside the private Ateliers to the magical world of Broadway to Hell's Kitchen, these four inspiring and uber-talented individuals let their passions guide the direction of their life's work.
Municipal garbage collection in New York City is exceptionally expensive -- the public-sector cost is more than double private-sector charges and much higher than collection costs in other cities. This fall provides a great opportunity to address the problem.
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.
Governments need to know that we are watching. Strong national offers won't happen without strong public support. It's time to hold leaders accountable for the promises they made in New York.
For half a century beginning with Franklin Roosevelt, there was a direct connection between the problems that afflicted American society and the remedies on offer from our democratic system. High unemployment? The New Deal, the World War II mobilization, and the postwar boom took care of that. Stagnant wages? With unions, growing productivity, minimum wage laws, and other regulation of labor standards -- American real wages tripled. Education? The G.I. bill, massive investment in public universities, community colleges, and later in public elementary and secondary education produced a better educated and more productive population. The exclusion of blacks from the American dream? A mass movement and a revolution in civil rights law made a big down-payment on redeeming the promise of Lincoln. I could go on, but you get the point. In the last century, democratic politics addressed real problems.
It is critically important that public schools entrusted with educating and preparing children for college, work and life stop feeding them into the juvenile and criminal justice systems with zero tolerance policies. Denying a child an education is hardly in the child or society's best interest.
The general perception is that while biological collections are mildly interesting, they are largely irrelevant to our lives. Nothing could be further from the truth.
From start to finish Pendleton and Walsh give astoundingly natural performances that go some way, though not far enough, to justify the length of the sketch.
Critics viewed with disbelief the recent data from the state Education Department that showed that fewer than four-tenths of one percent of Long Island teachers are rated "ineffective."
Greenfield's body of work simultaneously displays a cultural continuity and an aesthetic evolution. He is committed to a profound exploration of Black identity, from his early works influenced by graphic design to his conceptually-based mature pieces.
There's a piano tucked into the corner like a baby in a bassinet. It's guarded by a pair of guitars. But these instruments play second fiddle to the incense. There is none burning, yet the living room is filled with the memory of its sweet, seductive scent.
On September 21, I was present at a piece of history...the People's Climate March of 2014. It was a huge event, planned with precision, and broken down into six contingencies. The route covered two miles. My interviews began with people waiting for the bus, on their way to the west side of Manhattan.
Is the media's excessive interest in personal scandal really at the root of the superficiality and viciousness of today's politics? I'm not convinced. Yes, tabloid-style coverage is a problem, but I see much bigger factors at play
