Plagiarism, file sharing, inauthenticity and insincerity. Vivacious American poet, Kenneth Goldsmith, was unfazed about entertaining the White House: "I just said the things that I normally say."
Earlier this week at an international summit that included the top 100 most influential travel bloggers and digital media persons in the world, the White House National Security Council announced the creation of a new Study Abroad Office.
This dinner is a charity event to raise money for scholarships and the White House Correspondents Association. If Fox limits itself to sending only its three White House Correspondents, we are only buying three seats -- not even a table!
This blog was originally posted on the White House Blog. With the holidays coming up, it is an opportune time for us to recognize the businesse...
Receiving commissions for things like the White House Holiday card is not something that comes easy. It may appear as if it is selected by chance, or even worse by nepotism, but after talking with landscape painter Emily Buchanan I have learned that neither of these is the case.
I grew up in an age in which contracting HIV was tantamount to a death sentence. Thankfully, that's no longer the case. But it's no longer the case so long as someone is tested, diagnosed, and receives a continuum of treatment. In the U.S., we are currently missing the mark by a mile.
Supportive housing works. So much so that we have witnessed a nearly 50 percent decline in the number of chronically homeless individuals over the past decade as supportive housing has taken hold and proliferated.
Success is something the rapper from Washington, D.C., is quickly becoming accustomed to, following a series of wildly popular mixtapes and collaborations with Chief Keef, A$AP Rocky and Gucci Mane.

When President Barack Obama, with Vice President Joseph Biden at the side of the stage, announced the resignation of Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary on November 24, it came as a surprise to many people in the Washington, DC area.
Following Chuck Hagel's resignation, President Obama has had himself cloned and then chosen that clone, known as Obama II, to become the United States' new Secretary of Defense.
President Obama's recent speech fits a historic and racist framework through which we can describe the exclusion and banishment of people with felonies who are detained and deported. Even while some parents of citizens will be eligible for relief, parents with felonies and their families will remain vulnerable.
With their longstanding allies now in Senate leadership, big polluters will seek to load up must-pass spending bills with anti-environmental riders and pass stand alone bills to block or overturn hard-fought safeguards.
Supporting a policy that has strong, majority support not only from Latinos or Asians but Americans overall isn't pandering to anyone. It's called democracy.
The media was wrong, and the White House was right. Still, many of us in the media won't admit it. Therefore, I'd like to apologize to you.
