By James M. Dorsey Egyptian-general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al Sisi's iron grip on dissident is likely to be put to the test with the sentencing to death of 11 soccer fans for involvement in a politically loaded football brawl three years ago that left 74 militant supporters of storied Cairo club...

Why My Daughter Never Got A Trampoline For Her Birthday

Teresa Kindred | April 19, 2015 | Fifty
From the time my daughter was old enough to jump up and down, she asked for a trampoline every year for her birthday. She never got one and there are four very good reasons why. While she made it through childhood relatively unscathed, she had four brothers who each thought they were Superman.

A step forward in Washington, a step back in New York

Randi Weingarten | April 19, 2015 | Education
Something stunning happened this week in Congress. The Senate's Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee voted 22-0 to overhaul No Child Left Behind. That's right, policymakers from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) listened to the people...

Why Parents Shouldn't Stalk Their Children On Social Media

Sharon Greenthal | April 19, 2015 | Fifty
Pain is an essential lesson for the emotional leap from childhood to adulthood. Mothers shouldn't be able to see photos in real time that capture their children when they're at their worst -- whether because of too much alcohol or too little happiness. We can, after all, sense when "something is not right," just from a photograph.

Diane Archer | April 19, 2015 | Fifty

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington | April 19, 2015 | Politics
This week, Americans fulfilled part of our responsibility to our government by filing taxes. But the government isn't doing its part in return. First, as a new report by the National Taxpayer Advocate showed, the IRS has been crippled by years of budget cuts, resulting in a "devastating erosion of taxpayer service" and filing misery for millions. Hold times, which were under three minutes in 2004, are now over 30 minutes. This isn't smaller government; it's broken government, which, for many budget-slashing legislators, is the point. In more news from dysfunctional D.C., Attorney General-Designate Loretta Lynch remains in limbo, her nomination held hostage by Senate Republicans for over five months. On Friday, a clearly frustrated President Obama demanded, "Call Loretta Lynch for a vote...This is embarrassing." Meanwhile, the bigger "news" was the breathless scoop of Hillary Clinton eating at Chipotle. She had, we were told, a chicken burrito bowl (with guacamole). If only our political system -- and media coverage -- were as satisfying.

'Every Fifteen Minutes' Has One Twist Too Many

Jackie K. Cooper | April 19, 2015 | Books
Writers love to keep their readers guessing, and this novel starts out telling us there is a sociopath in the story somewhere. We don't know who he/she is until the ending but we know this person is lurking in the corners waiting to pounce.

Many taboos have been lifted on sex toys: vibrators, machines, implements, devices, applications, lotions, creams, pills, and potions (off the FDA radar) promising "magic moments" in human sexuality, with or without a partner in some cases.
