Count me among the surprised if, in 2019, some part or parts of the U.S. national security state and the White House aren't still running drone campaigns that cross national borders with impunity, kill whomever those in Washington choose, and generally continue to run what has proven to be a global war for (not on) terror.
Today, President Barack Obama took bold action to put an end to this farce. Over half a century of a counterproductive sanctions and isolation policy is coming to an end. But Cuba is only one of many examples of domestic politics rendering American foreign policy dysfunctional.
Anyone who runs a business -- whether it's a mom-and-pop shop or a multinational behemoth like Sony -- needs to pay close attention to what happened here, and begin to take data security seriously.
It wasn't that the US has lacked opportunities to resume diplomatic relations with Cuba. We could have at least begun the process thirty-five years ago. I was there, and this is the story you will not read in any diplomatic archive. The story begins in Iran...
Women and girls worked hard in 2014 to advance equality, and we should be encouraged that in many ways our efforts paid off. In each bit of 2014 news that we found depressing, maddening, truly appalling, or all three, we've found a silver lining that can inspire and fuel our efforts for 2015.

a cowardly Sony Pictures just betrayed not only its audience, but the entire tradition of comedy, and all those brave men and women who for 2,500 years have used comedy to speak truth to tyranny. Terrorists and Despots 1; Humanity 0.

Central and South American countries stand at a key crossroads; as environmentally and economically vulnerable countries, they have much to lose in the face of devastating climate change.
It's time we look to them as the most obvious source of funding to support our public colleges and start investing our money into a system that we know works.
We need to prepare our people and our businesses to prosper in a world where businesses have more choices than ever before about where to hire and where computers are increasingly doing the work of laborers.
Welcome to the latest generation of computer games. They don't so much help you escape reality as insert you back into it at a different angle.
If you ask me, Obama's action on Cuba was a master stroke, and full of foresight. He has undercut Putin's ability to use Cuba as a pressure point against the U.S. going forward and has, in a single action, transformed a net negative for the U.S. and Cuba into a net positive for its government, people, and businesses.
For those who are serious about wanting to reduce the number of abortions in the United States, easy access to affordable and effective contraception, and ready advice about the proper use of contraception, is critical.
Whether a state has done a lot or a little in promoting EVs, it's not been enough to date. No resting on laurels!
As we prepare for the end of The Colbert Report, it is time to reflect on exactly what we are losing as Stephen Colbert retires his character and moves on to host The Late Show.
Is this passage of a $1.1 trillion bill a sign of what we can expect from the Republican-led Senate that will take charge Jan. 3?
This is about your right as an American to produce and consume political, artistic and social expression without governmental terrorism and censorship, in this case North Korea's. This includes your right to choose to see potentially dumb and distasteful films, as well your right not to see it.
