The Gathering Storm

Michael E. Mann | September 19, 2014 | Green
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.

My Summer Playing New York City Streetball

Tyson Hartnett | September 19, 2014 | New York
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.

Climate Change You Can Believe In

Bill Moyers | September 19, 2014 | Politics
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.

Bike If You Can, Fly If You Must -- By All Means, Go

Gernot Wagner | September 19, 2014 | Green
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.

Yes, It Does Matter If Jonathan Bennett Is Gay And Out of the Closet or Not, And Here's Why

Noah Michelson | September 19, 2014 | Gay Voices
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.

Marching to Make the Urgency for Climate Action Clear

Susan Casey-Lefkowitz | September 19, 2014 | Green
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.

David Beckham, Live In New York (Kinda)

Michael J. Agovino | September 19, 2014 | Sports
Bruce Arena had said at one point that Beckham trained hard every day. He had never been a favorite of mine -- I thought he was another good-looking, overrated British brat -- but the older he got, the more he earned my respect.

10 Signs You've Had Kids and Moved Out of the City

Meredith Hale | September 18, 2014 | Parents
You put on a pair of sensible flats because the idea of trekking around the city in heels makes you want to curl up in bed and watch Orange Is the New Black. You then take off your flats, curl up in bed, and watch Orange Is the New Black.

Most friends told me not to fret -- it was my birthday and if ever there is a night for drunken debauchery, this was it.

The Problem With Sweeping Reform

Elissa Stein | September 18, 2014 | Education
No, the current test is not perfect but, because of its right/wrong structure results are unbiased and objective. There's no room for personal interpretation, favoritism, or different standards for different cultural groups. The mayor wants to change this. But he's on shaky ground.

From Lost To Found On the Metro-North Train

Off The Shelf | September 18, 2014 | Books
By Grace Stearns for Off the Shelf An important part of my daily life as an apathetic Millennial involves the strategic avoidance of hype. Overenthusiasm or, even worse, earnest admiration of any kind is a social embarrassment too great to risk, regardless of whatever cultural phenomenon, life-changing product,...

Five Reasons I Can't Adapt to the Suburbs

Larry Bernstein | September 18, 2014 | HuffPost Home
The boys play in the backyard. My wife loves planting and killing flowers. And I'm happy to have a driveway. While I love the permanent parking spot, I still can't seem to adapt to the suburbs.

Stage Door: Embers

Fern Siegel | September 18, 2014 | Arts
Embers is a more inaccessible Beckett drama, yet even as it unnerves audiences, the work is strangely hypnotic. Beckett himself called it "ragged."

5 Cool Things to Do Before the People's Climate March

Diana Donlon | September 18, 2014 | Green
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.

Am I Transphobic?: My History With Transgender Women and Effeminate Men

Jeremy Helligar | September 18, 2014 | Gay Voices
If transgender people want to be respected and accepted for who they are, then the same courtesy must be extended to cisgender men. One's sexual gender preference deserves as much respect and acceptance as one's gender identity. This realization helped me come to terms with my general lack of attraction for trans women.

The Right Way to Tour NYC's 9/11 Memorial

Ethan Gelber | September 18, 2014 | New York
Isn't what matters most that we all remember? That we remember not just the drama and the tallies of lives lost, but the individual moments and people. And the efforts by those who love them to create lasting temples to their memory.
