60 houses built by the Ezrat Niddachim charitable organisation in Silwan, Jerusalem, for poor Yemenite Jews in the 1880s. An Arab resident of Silwan...
Republicans have made questions of how safe we are -- from disease, terrorism or something unspoken and perhaps more ominous -- central in their attacks against Democrats. But this is nothing new.
California may be famous for its beaches, but what really defines the state's geography are its many mountain ranges. On Friday, President Obama permanently protected one of those mountain ranges by designating almost 350,000 acres of the Angeles National Forest as our newest national monument.
President Barack Obama's got a lot of problems, some of his making, many not. The last thing he need is one of his former top officials feeding attack lines to his enemies. So naturally, that's what he has.
Fantasy makes great television and literature. It also makes poor public policy. Poverty denial molds how many conservatives, and even independents, understand economic deprivation.
Sadly, the answer is "no." We have not had one since Barack Obama entered the Oval Office six years ago.
Congress is in recess. The American public is freaking out about Ebola. Sen. John McCain is leading a growing cadre of Republicans calling for an "Ebola czar." So what's wrong with this picture? CBS News got it right when it wrote, "As calls for Ebola 'czar' grow, where's the surgeon general?"
Altaeros Energies is developing turbine-equipped tubular helium balloons that float up to 2,000 feet in the air to capture wind energy. (From Altaero...

It is difficult enough to confront resurgent diseases without an explosion of unhinged conspiracy mongering.
President Obama has faced a lot of criticism lately for not being "tough enough" on ISIS. Most of it seems to boil down to this: Why won't he do what we always do?

Contrary to conventional wisdom, and many polls, Barack Obama is exactly the right kind of pragmatic leader we need to have as President in these scary times. His steadfastness steered the country through the worst recession since the 1930s.
We must encourage men to have a voice in this discussion because while the majority of domestic violence victims are women, every year in the U.S., about 3.2 million men are the victims of an assault by an intimate partner.
You know what might help in this crisis-to-end-all-crises? Having a Surgeon General in office. President Obama nominated someone for the job last November, but his confirmation has been blocked ever since.
At what point did we start being a political party instead of Americans? I don't remember anyone trashing Crawford, Texas and saying it was a horrible place.
