Season 2's slinky cool "The Jet Set" has been definitively dethroned as Mad Men's kookiest episode ever. We've gone from time out of mind to out of mind time.
One night, when I was about 13-years-old, my dad caught me doing unspeakable things to myself and said, "You know, if you keep that up you're going to go blind." And I said, "Dad, I'm over here."
The Discovery Route is perfectly situated along the California coast, midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco and is the ideal getaway for vacationing families or couples seeking the experience of a lifetime.
I just know that he was an artist, not just in what he did in his life, but in how he lived it. He touched me and I knew him very briefly, just twice, two unforgettable times, two decades apart.

The Great Gatsby,
The "crazy" Zelda that has emerged in our popular imagination is as much Scott's making as The Great Gatsby itself. This is, in and of itself, part of the F. Scott legacy. His work depended on Zelda's silence.

As I wander through the land of environmental nonprofits, I'm always asking myself: What works? Because on one level, nothing is working. Every year more land and water is converted to human use.
The first Indiana Jones movie opens with our hero having his prize stolen from him by a rival archeologist. No one remembers that the statue actually belongs to the Peruvian tribespeople. In 2013, Californians are witnessing an allegory with the repeated raiding of the revenues from the carbon price under state law AB32 that should be theirs.
I was a 25-year-old documentary filmmaker from New York working on a show for MTV. He was a 21-year-old dancer in East Oakland trying to move on with his life after the murder of his little brother. I spent a year embedded in his life, and got a front row seat to an American epidemic.

We leave together. You leave Yale College after four years; I leave the Yale Presidency after twenty. I find myself thinking about a Grateful Dead song written in 1970, the year I came to Yale as a graduate student. You know the words: "Lately it occurs to me, what a long, strange trip it's been." It's been a long trip, but, for us, more wonderful than strange.

Cindy Chavez is running for Supervisor District 2 in Santa Clara County. In March, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors called a special election to fill the vacancy for Supervisor in District Two. The primary will be held June 4th.
How could we truly distinguish great science from good science? Often, we can't. Nor should we, in many cases -- although journal "impact factors" are being used to try to do just that.

I have been involved in research in this area for 17 years, since shortly after BRCA1 and BRCA2 were discovered, and I have no idea what I would do if I were a woman faced with this decision. The diagnosis of a mutation is just words on paper, but the risks they foreshadow are very real.
It's the second day at Google I/O 2013 in San Francisco. While the other members of the HuffPost tech team on site have been pursuing sessions on Android and Google Glass, I've been focused on something much more mundane: the World Wide Web.
Get your animals spayed or neutered. And while your pet's annual veterinary check-up certainly includes the sort of hands-on exam that may detect a lump, it's important to know your pet's body well enough on your own to offer up what in fact saved Sugar Rub.
The San Francisco I fell in love with was a place of welcoming bonhomie and a sense of community. It was politically correct before the concept of political correctness existed. Now the cool, gray city of love is undeniably cold. It has become a hard place.
When a great American author recommends a bookstore to you, you would be well-advised to listen. When he does it with enthusiasm and passion, which was the only way Ray Bradbury ever did anything, you would be well-advised not just to listen, but to take note.
Your chance of winning the lottery on a single ticket is one in 175 million. That seems tiny, and it is. In fact, it's so small that it is difficult for us to grasp. Understanding how small this number is provides the key to understanding how likely -- or unlikely -- it is you will become the next big winner of the Powerball jackpot.
