Teacher Time

Peter Greene | August 1, 2014 | Education
This is one of those things that non-teachers don't entirely get. If you work in an office, time is pretty flexy. If a meeting can benefit by running an extra 10 or 15 minutes, you just do it. But in most schools, when the bell rings, you're done. There is no little extra bit of time you can just throw into the work.

Kissing Doesn't Kill

Matthew Ebert | July 31, 2014 | Gay Voices
Face facts, Truvada will be in everyone's bloodstream in about 15 minutes, so why argue over it? On two fronts we can assault this virus -- the POZ and the NEG, the dirty and the clean. Can we cut the crap and get in one line?

"The young father's enthusiasm was contagious. I guess he just wanted to let loose a bit. Thank you for sharing your passion for life, it made my night and everyone else's."

The Time Is Ripe for Elected Leaders to Come Out for Marijuana Legalization

Tony Newman | August 1, 2014 | Politics
As discerning analysts like Nate Silver have been noticing, there's a particularly large gap between elite and popular opinion on marijuana policy. It's long past time to close that gap. Marijuana legalization is far from a risky position -- in fact, it's smart politics.

Now the Metropolitan Opera, my home for over 20 years of my 34-year career, is in the final hours of labor negotiations. We have been told there will be a lockout starting at midnight Thursday evening when the fiscal year closes.

We Must Honor the Rule of Law for Desperate Children at the U.S. Border

Lenni Benson | July 31, 2014 | Politics
Regardless of their origin, all children have the same right to due process before the law. We should guarantee "equality under the law" not by lowering standards for more kids, but by raising standards for all kids.

I Got Through Airport Security With Someone Else's Plane Ticket

Rebecca Adams | July 31, 2014 | Travel
I honestly didn't plan to put the airport security system to the test. I was just really tired and didn't notice that the name on the ticket wasn't mine -- it wasn't even female. But I unwittingly managed to find a chink in the TSA armor last weekend. My father...

The Day I Brought A Mouse To The Office And Fell In Love With HuffPost

Joanna Zelman | July 30, 2014 | Media
I am proud to call HuffPost my family, and will always be grateful for how everyone there made me into who I am today (the good parts, at least. My irrational fear of humans dressed as animals and my mild cake frosting allergy should not be attributed to my time with the company.)

First Nighter: 'Sex With Strangers' Is Sexy With Straining

David Finkle | July 30, 2014 | Arts
Since Laura Eason calls her tense romantic comedy Sex With Strangers, audiences can be forgiven for jumping to the correct conclusion that these strangers -- they're both writers -- won't waste too much time before having torrid sex with each other.

I Am Not Adorable, So Please Stop Calling Me That

Ann Brenoff | July 31, 2014 | Fifty
There's lots of discussion these days about what to call people as they grow older. Nobody likes 'elderly'; 'senior' and 'senior citizen' are a scant improvement over 'elderly'; and we can argue till the cows come home exactly what 'older person' means. I'm fine with using my actual age as a descriptor. I'm a '64-year-old.' Period. What I'm not fine with is being called 'adorable.'

Michael Rosenblum | July 30, 2014 | Media
The problem with the newspaper is that they continue to see themselves as a newspaper, either a print version, or an online version of the same. They are not.
