The demand for shark fins is what drives almost all shark deaths. Some species may have declined by as much as 97-99 percent in the last 35 years. In other words, as few as one out of 100 may be left of some species.
When I told my daughter that Delaware passed gay marriage this week, she was puzzled. "Why don't they already have it?"
As a parent of a 17 and 20 year old, I understand the balancing act of parenting teens. We still operate under those protective instincts we had when...
Last week legislators voted in favor of equality, which means the hard work is finished and only a few procedural steps are left before marriages can start. Barring any 11th-hour surprises, weddings are scheduled to start in Delaware on July 1, and in Rhode Island on Aug. 1.
Get ready: we're about to see major marriage news in at least two states. Rhode Island and Delaware are rocking towards legislative votes, and that means we could see access to marriage dramatically expand just in time for summer.
This is going to be a big year for equality in this country. As a nation, we're poised to make historic progress, and in Delaware, we have the opportunity to make sure that everyone has the same right to marry the person they love.

The best thing about Strine, at the end of the day, is that he has principles and that he's human. That's worth preserving, even if his jokes sometimes go awry.
Where is the best place to make a living? In today's tough economy, it's an especially relevant question. A recent CareerBuilder survey found that 44 percent of workers said they'd be willing to relocate for a job opportunity.
We are fed up and done with politicians and public figures debasing our communities and children. We will not stand for it.
Beyond the traditional lessons on reading, writing, and math, schools across America are now teaching their students about another crucially important subject that will build the foundation for the rest of their lives: nutrition.
As a candidate vying for the Republican Presidential nomination, to suggest that poor children collectively lack a work ethic and drive for legal and productive work is entirely classist. Our children deserve better than your degrading rhetoric.
A changing racial-ethnic composition in the U.S. suggests that candidates should not fear, or be uncomfortable, going into predominately racial-ethnic communities to communicate their ideas about how to fix problems.
