New data, with help from Google, illustrate unprecedented -- and until now, largely overlooked -- forest loss in Southeast Asia and West Africa, among other hotspots.
Range voting eliminates spoilers and splitting the vote between two good candidates. It gives voters a chance to show how much they dislike someone, rather than just being silent. For these reasons, Range Voting is superior to Instant Runoff Voting.
Let's begin with a qualifier: Us saying the Pope is better for women than Republicans does not mean we think the Pope is some new progressive superhero. He's got 2000 years of dogmatic baggage to contend with.
Even if you haven't paid attention to the effects of the 3-week period when Mercury goes retrograde, this time you should, because major events are about to happen. I have some important predictions for you to consider that may change your life, on a personal, relationship, financial and political level.
For any serious student of marketing and media seeking a perfect pop culture storm, I give you the man currently dominating the race to be the U.S. Republican Party's 2016 presidential candidate.
The Republican Party has to recognize that we're not matching our desired perception. Unless a brand transformation begins during the presidential campaign, we risk having a shelf life that expires in November 2016.
Even with all of the challenges that come with such a decision, Vice President Biden has faced more daunting obstacles many times before in his life.
Republicans are playing politics with the nuclear safety of the nation and deserve the highest level of disdain and condemnation to reflect the great shame and discredit they bring upon their party, the Senate and America.
It wasn't that long ago that the pundits had the 2016 presidential contest pegged as a Clinton-Bush match-up. While that may still occur, I wouldn't place a bet on it.
If elected, Trump will fill his cabinet with people who know his management style. He would, therefore, draw heavily from his reality program, Celebrity Apprentice, and from business and politics associates.
Governor Huckabee, what's going on? Are you running for President of the United States of America, or for a primetime slot on cable news? I think you are overstating the courage of Kim Davis and misrepresenting Christ.
Many health care entities cited by bill proponents as potential replacements for existing family planning clinics are unable to provide anywhere near a full spectrum of services. This disregard for the consequences of these bills sheds a disturbing light on the current legislative majority.
VAGINAS. I have to admit that I actually agree with the GOP...those vaginas are questionable places.
More than a dozen GOP governors wrote a letter to President Barack Obama, vowing to keep state-level sanctions on Iran despite the nuclear deal. But can a state really circumvent the U.S. President's policy on sanctions? A U.S. Supreme Court case from several years ago could block that plan.
In terms of its relationship to other nations, this nuclear deal represents Iran being forced to subjugate itself just as Germany did after the World Wars, even though they haven't been involved in any such conflict. Iran is literally kneeling before the West in the face of credible threats to destroy them if they do not.
In spite of all the other horrible things we do to each other each day in this country, the God VS. Gays tragic comedy that's been playing out in the Bible Belt for the past month is the one event that far and away makes me ashamed to be an American.
