When it comes to actually including Gen Y in any meaningful political discourse, both parties fail with flying colors.
Holy product placement. Millions of us watched the monumentally popular Pope Francis drive off in his four-door Fiat 500S. Don't you assume this car w...
President Obama has taken extraordinary measures to lower U.S. CO2 emissions, especially considering the congressional hand he was dealt. But it's nowhere near enough, and I can't help wonder what more he might have done if he'd experienced a life-changing moment.
What would happen if every country decriminalized prostitution? Not just the few that have already disastrously done so, but what if every government legitimized pimps and brothel owners and failed to hold men accountable for purchasing human beings for sex?
What follows is a "lean-in" approach that President Obama might try. It may be just what he needs to effectively deal with all the critics around him. That is because it utilizes one thing that most people are defenseless against.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. Fire of Another Kind: The aurora borealis bat...
I hold both extremes - the Holocaust deniers and the Holocaust revisionists - as offensive to the good people who were all taken from us far too soon. Let them rest in peace. Let the truth prevail.
Vladimir Putin is only nine years older than Barack Obama, yet they somehow are of a different generation. How could this be?
Republicans are now searching for a new leader, but personality and charisma will not heal this deep divide between politics and governance that has plagued the party for more than two decades. It may be the greatest unintended consequence of the Gingrich revolution.

Hopefully Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate will cast a spotlight on the differences among the candidates and delve into substantive issues that have not been adequately addressed in the campaign to date.
Since Russian President Vladamir Putin began his military air campaign in Syria last week, Western media has been clamoring to explain his motivation. Most of the analysis so far has been incomplete or half-baked at best.
For too long, Americans have insisted on flawless produce, forcing restaurants and markets to discard fruits or vegetables that are ripe, nourishing and delicious. Looks aren't everything.
Obama, with his lawyer's training, is risk averse, so he naturally prefers the line of least resistance. As the anti-Bush, his approach to strategy boils down to "Don't do stupid s***." But that, like "strategic patience," is just another way of saying, "Always kick the can down the road."
As long as people are using oil -- and even with Brown's target of cutting use in half by 2030, we'll be using a lot of oil -- why not have California reap the economic rewards?
