Miriam Rivera | July 28, 2016 | Latino Voices

Methane basics

Sally Brown | July 27, 2016 | Science
What do you, cows, digesters and landfills all have in common? You all/ we all make methane gas. The methane in landfill is the same as 'clean fuel' natural gas. It is the same as the gas in anaerobic digesters. It is the same stuff that cows and people produce...

I don't like what I'm seeing in Bitcoin recently. Or, more specifically, what I'm seeing is very good news for Bitcoin holders potentially - which is bad news for a more diversified user like me, as I reduced my bitcoin balance at around $661.20. But now, at $654, I'm uniquely...

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hears A Different Kind of Argument

Lisa Snedeker | July 27, 2016 | Entertainment
Wouldn't you agree that the losing litigant in a trial rife with falsities and error -- from an imposter judge to undeniable anti-Semitism -- deserves an appeal? U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg does. That's why today, July 27, at the intersection...

I'm Not Alright, But It's Going To Be Okay....

Leigh M. Clark | July 27, 2016 | Women
It dawned on me that I've never met the child who I will be the parent to one day. Perhaps it won't be born of my body, but it will be born of my soul. I hope to one day float with them on a Saturday morning, hopefully not watching their heartbreak.

History's Lesson: Andrew Jackson and Trump -- Tyranny's Twins

Sherman Yellen | July 27, 2016 | Politics
Trump can mean the very end of the future of this country as we know it -- the end of the rule of law. No, I am not "for her". I am for my family, my friends and my country -- and that means I will be voting for Hillary with a prayer as well as a ballot.

Not Wearing Bras: Empowering Or Embarrassing?

Elisabeth Dale | July 27, 2016 | Style
I'm intrigued by the reported trend that women are no longer wearing bras. Ditching your bra is supposed to make you feel more independent, liberated, and empowered.

Finding Mr./Ms. Right In The LGBT Community

Joe Anthony | July 27, 2016 | Queer Voices
My partner and I know that we're flawed. In fact, we welcome and openly discuss the fact all the time. This, we believe, makes us more open to improvement, allows us to grow together -- and of course leaves plenty of room to extract entertainment value from our shortcomings.

He's at a stage where he gives grins out for everything and everyone. He doesn't know hate. I love that innocence and that his smile can light up a room. I want to hold onto that innocence and love for as long as possible.

Profiles of Dissent

Center for Community Change Action | July 27, 2016 | Politics
By Thomas Kennedy While Democrats were for the most part united during the Democratic National Convention, there was no doubt that there were ripples of dissent. Standing on the upper levels of the Wells Fargo Center during the first night, impassioned Bernie Sanders supporters consistently booed every time Hillary Clinton...

"Eat this, and know your mother loves you," she cooed. By my second meatball, I had all but forgotten the boo boos. The message was clear: Food is love.

The Lesbian Chronicles 33: Dog Daze Of Summer

Katharine Angelina Love | July 27, 2016 | Queer Voices
This afternoon, as Lorraine and I were going to the dining room for lunch, I decided to leave our glass door open, closing only the screen door so that my puppy Lucille would be able to feel the breeze from the beach. When we returned from lunch I saw that the screen door was opened.

Go Easy When Fighting Frizzy Hair

Go low on the temp. Heat is a big contributor to frizz. Especially if it's already dry and hot out, turn down the temp on your tools.

"What Difference Does It Make!" Response by "Successful BusinessWomen for Trump" to Hillary Nomination

Philadelphia. "The City of Brotherly Love" is under siege by protestors fed up with broken dreams and broken promises by career-politicians who shamelessly use voters for their personal ambition and agenda. Even Grandpa Bernie who so many millennials trusted gave up the fight for them. All hollow talk. Succumbed to...
