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."

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.

Want to Save the Planet? Flood Wall Street

Richard (RJ) Eskow | September 18, 2014 | Politics
Wall Street is the epicenter of our environmental crisis. To ignore that fact is to risk dooming our other climate efforts to failure, or to use them merely as palliatives for troubled consciences. There's no other way to say this: Capitalism, as practiced on Wall Street today, is an existential threat to humanity.

Like a fine wine exhibits its terroir, an oyster's merroir imparts a distinct flavor, from the briny Blue Points of Long Island to snappy Kumamotos of the Pacific Northwest to the bright Malpeques of Prince Edward Island.

After the Climate March, Then What? Flood Wall Street

Rachel Smolker | September 18, 2014 | Green
Climate Change is not just an "inconvenience" to be resolved by plugging into some other currency of extraction ("sustainable, green and renewable" energy). It is the defining context of our lives and of this time in the history of life on earth.

The Thing You Can Do This Week That Counts More Than Voting

Molly Dorozenski | September 18, 2014 | Green
Maybe you've heard that the biggest ever climate march is happening in New York this weekend. But maybe you don't go to marches. You don't go, even when you care about an issue, because you don't consider yourself to be an activist and you don't have activist friends. Maybe you don't go because no one has ever asked.

The Incredible Life Lesson I Learned From My Teenage Daughter

Ann Brenoff | September 18, 2014 | Fifty
