There's no good reason for fibroids to continue to cause such a high degree of suffering. But awareness of the condition is key if women are to get prompt and appropriate treatment.

Disruption in media is happening at a record rate. One week it's BuzzFeed and then next it's VOX. It's hard to decipher how things will shake out. There is a deluge of content, and we can't keep up. Who is going to finish? Who will win?

If there was ever a newspaper one could consider a friend all over the world, it was the International Herald Tribune. It conveyed a sense of warmth and familiarity that is often missing when one is living and working abroad.

Regardless of socio-economic status, I have never met a single mother who didn't want a better life for herself and her children and who didn't realize that education and knowledge are they key to leveling the playing field.

Have We Heard This Song Before?

As much as I would like believing the Iranian Islamist regime is on a moderating course that seeks to resolve its challenges diplomatically, as opposed to using proxy violence, regionally and against its own citizenry, history teaches us that this is not the real case.

Will Residential College Share the Print Media's Fate?

Historically, we've taken for granted that prospective students know and value that experience. This may have been a mistake the print media made when they thought their subscribers would always want the feel of newsprint on their fingertips.

Whatever happens, we can be dead certain that he will revolutionize newsgathering and the opinion business, and set up a new culture for others to follow. But like Amazon, his strongest suit is that he will have gotten there first.

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington | Posted 10.10.2013 | Politics
Arianna Huffington

This week brought the further merging of new and traditional media when Amazon's Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post for $250 million. The prevailing sentiment from media observers was one of hope -- hope that someone as innovative and entrepreneurial as Bezos can save this valuable part of America's cultural infrastructure. With all the talk this week about preserving great journalism, it's also a valuable opportunity to ponder what's missing from our media landscape. If the purpose of journalism is to give people a better sense of what's happening in their world, reporting only on what's broken isn't enough. How about more on what is working? At a time when our government is deeply dysfunctional, showing how people are having a positive impact in their communities -- and how others can too -- is essential. Let's just hope Bezos succeeds in reviving his new purchase before his 10,000-year clock runs out.

The paper is at an important crossroads. Should The Washington Post's legacy of editorial independence, investigative journalism, outstanding writing and reporting, and service to the public become the victim of "frugality" and "customer obsessions", the paper will precipitously decline.

America has been tilting toward an economy that benefits primarily the 1 percent. For America to work we need an economy that benefits the 100 percent. Combining an enhanced EITC and minimum wage moves us in that direction.
