Demi Lovato's Long Road to Recovery

Joshua Lyon | May 7, 2012 | TV
I didn't expect much from the MTV special Demi Lovato: Stay Strong, figuring it would be a lot of spin about the former Disney star's rehab stint -- a generic, PR-laced message of salvation with no real details about what the 19-year-old is truly like. I'm happy to be proven wrong.

Jason Gilbert | May 7, 2012 | Technology
After the iPhone 4S was announced in October, the buzzword that hung around it was "disappointing." Part of this was due to the outsized hype leading up to the announcement. Rumors of the arrival of a slimmer, lighter, leather-jacket-wearing iPhone 5 prevailed, and when the...

Rush Limbaugh's Advertiser Desertion Feels Good, But Why Doesn't It Feel Right?

Scott Mendelson | May 7, 2012 | Media
Having lived through 10 years of countless liberal/progressive or just-plain-not-crazy people being targeted and/or persecuted because they said something that was deemed inflammatory, I can only take so much pleasure with the shoe being on the other foot.

Joseph Kony's Facebook Status: In Hiding

Josh D. Scheinert | May 7, 2012 | Canada
Invisible Children wants to make war criminal Joseph Kony a household name, and have his image plastered around the world in an attempt to raise awareness, bracelets and all. What bothers is the symbolism of this campaign. Are we really still stuck on this kind of ignorant advocacy?

In Defense Of iPad: Apple's New Name Irritates, But Works

Bianca Bosker | May 7, 2012 | Technology
The simplicity of the iPad's name not only makes it easy to remember, but suggests that Apple's tablet is exceptional. Madonna doesn't need a last name. Nor does the iPad, it seems.

'Everyone' Doesn't Always Mean Me

Liz Margolies, L.C.S.W. | May 7, 2012 | Gay Voices
I often interact with mainstream cancer groups, and when I do, I bring up the underserved and invisible LGBT community. "Oh, don't worry," they always say in that reassuring voice. "Our organization and our services are meant for everyone." Really?

National Consumer Protection Week: It's Up to You (Sorry!)

Adam Levin | May 7, 2012 | Money
I'm not suggesting that anyone purchase an inferior product just because it was made in the U.S.A. But if it's a tossup between two products of comparable price and quality, one American and one not, buy American. Here's why.

Karen Gill | May 7, 2012 | UK
What is clear is that, for now, women must strike a balance, choosing when to play the rules or make up their own.
