We don't give our kids enough experience in how to ask questions, develop a hypothesis, try things, gather data, and sometimes fail -- and to do so effectively. And we need to teach them it's OK for things to go wrong in the short term if they are working hard toward a longer goal and using the evidence-based process of science.
The Obama administration has broadcast that since Benjamin Netanyahu announced that there will never be a Palestinian state so long as he remains Prime Minister of Israel, the U.S. may end its policy of blocking consideration of the Israel-Palestine conflict at the UN Security Council.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. @@ Censoring South Florida Sea Level Rise - maybe state employees aren't allowed ...
Whether one calls it a gimmick, a joke, or a dagger aimed at the heart of any American whose house lacks a car elevator, the Republican budget plans -- which will include a repeal of the president's healthcare reform law -- offer a serious opportunity for Democrats, if they take advantage of it.
If Israel's laws and policies existed in the U.S. today, many towns would be legally permitted to deny housing to African Americans because of the color of their skin; Arab and Muslim Americans would be forbidden from marrying and bringing their loved ones to the U.S. if they were born in the Middle East.
Late last week, hundreds of organizations and people sent a letter to President Obama warning that his administration is running of time to act on an issue long-identified by the president as essential to our national security and public safety: protecting our people from the dangers of accidents or deliberate attacks at U.S. chemical plants. Here is the text of the letter.
President Obama, speaking at the City Club of Cleveland Wednesday, was asked what he thought he could do about the issue of money in politics. And his answer -- for the short term, at least -- is to suggest that America make voting mandatory, as they do in Australia. He's wrong. Dead wrong.
As I begin to rethink and review the Obama presidency, I think history will judge it based principally not on Obamacare but on two other matters: his foreign policy and the consequences of his presidency on the unfinished business of race relations in America.
Thanks to the ACA, millions of AAs and NHPIs now have access to critical cancer screenings, preventive health care services, such as birth control and diabetes screenings and much more.
From now until April 7, we have the power to push both candidates to give specific answers. After you get the questions you want answered, you must take the final step and cast your ballot.
Located on a sprawling campus, which includes the Ararat Home, a retirement community, an assisted living facility, a church and even a banquet hall, the museum has a fine collection of artifacts not only of the Armenian genocide but also of the history of the Armenian people.
When coupled with EPA's slow and steady progress to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act, this change in government's own operations begins to resemble a meaningful federal climate policy.
An authentic artist creates beauty that lifts us up to the highest within us. The Creativity of such an artist comes from his or her connection to the Divine Source, which is therefore able to make a truly constructive contribution to humanity.
Lowry & Corn clash over Netanyahu's win-- Arabs-are-coming plus 3 positions on 2 States in 36 hours. Lombardi & Durocher: "Win any way you can so long as you get away with it." What should Obama & Clinton do now? Then: is Mandatory Voting anti-liberty or a civic obligation like jury duty?
The ACA is far more than a concept. It has become a right for the more than 8 million Americans who have gained coverage under the law. Now what conservatives are trying to do is rip away what can be literally life saving coverage.
This week began with all sorts of madness. College hoops' March Madness began on Thursday, and if I had a bracket it would no doubt already be busted. Weather madness broke out on Friday, the first day of spring, with a snowstorm on the East Coast. More serious meteorological madness descended as Senator Mitch McConnell launched a national effort to thwart new EPA regulations on coal-fired carbon emissions. This comes as new data showed that the rate of melting on Antarctica's East Ice could lead to a world sea-level rise of at least 11 feet and that -- spring snowstorms aside -- 2014 was the warmest year on record. On Friday, HuffPost's Sam Stein interviewed President Obama, who, when asked about managing stress, said he takes "the long view." It's a perspective we'll need -- combined with short-term political urgency -- if we're going to tackle climate change. To do otherwise is true madness.
