Ben Carson is not a household name. He's popular in far Right circles and unlikely to break out of them. He is also rather hateful and made one of the more absurd comments in the new "Cake Wars," which are meant to show how fundamentalists are victimized. Carson
The monstrous slaughter at the French magazine Charlie Hebdo brought hundreds of thousands of marchers and numerous world leaders onto the streets of Paris to support free expression. But the attacks really were not about freedom of speech. Rather, the killings demonstrated how the destructive phenomenon of religious persecution is...
At first glance, the numbers seem staggering. Global mobile phone penetration is 96 percent. In sub-Saharan Africa, where 47 percent of the population lives on less than $1.25 a day, mobile data use is expected to grow twentyfold by the end of 2019, according to a June 2014...

The promise of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) can only be met once everyone who is eligible and in need of health coverage receives it. This is especially true for the Latino community, which stands to benefit the most from the new health care law, but only if more of us enroll.
At $200 Million and counting, American Sniper has touched a nerve and set off a national debate on who is real and who is fake. After being maligned by journalists, morning anchors, and bloggers, the Fake Baby from American Sniper is telling his side of the story. And yes, he did it in one take.

If it hasn't been incinerated, every piece of plastic ever produced is still with us. There is no time for any species to biologically adapt to cope with plastic, including us. We have to make an effort to culturally evolve with way less plastic.
Having recently read Governor Cuomo's State of the State address proposals for "education reform" I felt as if I was in an educational time warp. After my two-year absence from writing my blog, "Educating for Democracy," I re-read that last post I wrote on February 5, 2013 and...
Home may be temporary and it may be common, but it is also important. This feeling of belonging in a world with so many circles. Not knowing where my next home will be, I can only relish the time I have left in this one. Last one, best one.
Last week, President Obama rightly declared in his State of the Union address: "No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change." This week, the Obama administration announced plans open up the Atlantic Ocean to oil and gas drilling.

I'd like to follow up on my previous blog post on the Mount Holyoke College controversy surrounding The Vagina Monologues because of the responses I've received. They've run the gamut from praise to condemnation, from thanks for informing the community of an important event in trans history to constructive criticism as well as vicious name calling.
Honestly, since becoming a mother I feel more and more distant from my mommy friends. It just disappoints me that we can't listen and comfort each other instead of pretending to be the perfect mothers according to whatever trend is going on.
Sex trafficking is the fastest-growing business of organized crime and the third-largest criminal enterprise in the world, according to the FBI. In 2013, nearly 5,000 cases of human trafficking were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center.

This is the first time, ever in my life, where I have heard science being highlighted within a pre-Super Bowl football game press conference. As a scientist, I was extremely happy and puzzled at the same time.
Sandwiched between the State of the Union address and the anniversary of Roe v. Wade is another January tradition: the release of Bill and Melinda Gates' Annual Letter.
