It may seem surprising that there has been a deluge of international press coverage of the recent outbreak of Ebolavirus: In fact, this disease where it does occur, unlike many others, starting with cholera, causes many fewer deaths. Its media impact, though, is justified on the basis of its appalling...
I suspect there is a lot of misinformation about the so-called Hitching Post Wedding Chapel case. Here is how fundamentalist anti-gay crusaders at "Alliance Defending (sic) Freedom" present things: "Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for a temporary restraining order Friday to stop...

The Billy & Ray of the vague title Mike Bencivenga gives his play at the Vineyard are Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler. By practically sheer accident the two men--and only after director Wilder had a rift with longtime partner Charles Brackett--collaborated in 1943-44 on the screen adaptation of James M....

An Interview with Mark Deuitch, Founder and CEO of PeopleClaim.com Mike Ragogna: Mark, tell us about PeopleClaim.com. What's its goal? Mark Deuitch: PeopleClaim is a new way to resolve any kind of dispute online without the...
It's hard to tell how much the far right, in its enduring hate for Obama, is seeing an opportunity in the Ebola hysteria, or the Ebola anxiety is feeding and re-igniting those racist and religious attacks on Obama...
Compare and contrast: Ebola vs. AIDS, Obama vs. Reagan. Anyone who continues to defend President Reagan's response to AIDS is ignoring a history of gross negligence compared with the response to other disease outbreaks in the U.S.
Hunger has forced generations into a cycle of poverty, and for children today the long-term impact will impair their ability to stay in school and seek employment. Reducing food insecurity has to be a priority for governments and the international community.
Mental Health Advocacy,
Mental Health Treatment,
Mental Patients In Prison,
Mentally Ill In Prison,
Mental-health services in the U.S. are a failed mess: underfunded, disorganized, inaccessible, misallocated, dispirited, and driven by commercial interest. The current nonsystem is a shameful disgrace that won't change unless the various voices who care about the mentally ill can achieve greater harmony.

None of the tips listed here are explicitly designed to make you a better college applicant when you get to that point, but that's exactly what they'll do if you follow them. And by "better," I don't mean competitively packaged. I mean authentic.
In part, I attribute my success to the fact that I had great opportunities and great champions along the way, but I also worked to develop skills that I saw were necessary for a seat in the corner office. I want to share some of the knowledge I gained along the way, in hopes that it will help women who aspire to be CEOs or high-level executives.
Wheeldon's is hardly the first, nor the most radical, revision of Swan Lake. Yet purists may object to his elimination of the court scenes and the bracing folk dances that add a more respectable character to Act III than the striptease and the can-can.
A Republican Senate is pretty much an iron-clad guarantee of the return of "fiscal cliffs" and "government shutdowns" and "hostage-taking" and all the rest of the budgetary games Republicans are known for playing.
The core of mass fury had to with the question Turkey's Kurds ask constantly these days: Can we trust that President Erdoğan is sincere about the peace talks with the PKK or, are we all being jerked around, duped?
In his seminal 1849 essay, "Resistance to Civil Government," Henry David Thoreau calls on the reader to: "Cast your whole vote, not a strip of paper merely, but your whole influence." The quote resonated with those I spoke to.
Down Syndrome Child,

There is a petition sweeping the Internet asking Disney to incorporate a protagonist with Down syndrome, but there is a backlash brewing even within the special needs community asking, is it necessary?
Wright would go on to become the impossibly prolific leader of the Prairie School: He completed more than 1,100 designs, nearly half of which were built, and a number of his masterworks were set in and around the Windy City.
In the middle 90's, "value" was the hot new word and every business was trying to improve its value equation -- which we operationally define as "outcomes divided by cost."
It is now possible for insurgent, anti-establishment candidates to raise a ton of money from small donors online, and to use that money, plus the Internet, plus old-fashioned organizing, to build nationwide, strong volunteer organizations -- all without any help from either of the idiot parties.
