On Tuesday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), accused Megyn Kelly of being “fascinated by sex.” The Fox News anchor is just the latest in a string of cable news hosts and guests who have faced subtle ― if not overt ― sexism over the years. The Huffington Post dug through the archives to determine just how common these remarks are on cable news.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump , trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton in every poll , unveiled a new campaign strategy on Thursday ― simply calling the whole thing off and declaring himself president. Speaking at an afternoon rally in Toledo, Ohio, Trump argued Clinton’s policies are so terrible that there’s no point in having an election at all. “Hillary Clinton wants to raise taxes on small businesses, up to 45 percent,” Trump said ― a claim previously rated “mostly false” by PolitiFact .

It’s been 25 years since Apple released its first notebook. Tim Cook announced Thursday that the newest MacBook Pro would be a game-changer, but after the big reveal, we’re just not sure. The new MacBook Pro is thinner and lighter than its predecessors ― and, as we predicted, probably not super good for the planet ― and it has a huge, double-size track pad for our fat fingers.
When New Hampshire educator Anne McQuade’s refugee and immigrant students first arrive in America, she says they are “hopeful.” They’ve been told about the American dream, and its ideas of opportunity and social mobility contrast the violent, war-torn countries they are often fleeing. But lately, these students haven’t received the warm welcome they expect. Because of Republican nominee Donald Trump ’s anti-immigrant and Islamophobic rhetoric, children are fearful that their family members will be deported or their new country will ban Muslims from entering, said McQuade
Who wants to argue with science, right? A decade ago, Penn State University researchers tested a sampling of 65+year-olds. Revisiting those subjects 10 years later, they found that the older adults who participated in so-called “brain training” ― exercises designed to improve cognitive ability ― were more likely to continue driving through their 80s than those who did not.

Gillian Murphy and Marcelo Gomes in ‘Her Notes.’ Photo: Rosalie O’Connor By Sheila Kogan, ZEALnyc Contributing Writer, October 27, 2016 Jessica Lang, award-winning choreographer who has had a long association with the Joyce Theater, has choreographed her first ballet for American Ballet Theater, titled Her Notes , to the piano music of Fanny Mendelssohn Hansel, the elder sister of Felix Mendelssohn. The music is noteworthy because the compositions of Fanny Mendelssohn Hansel have largely been unknown – it wasn’t considered acceptable for a woman of her time (1800s) to publish music – but she wrote over 400 piano pieces (a few published under her brother’s name). Lang chose excerpts from Das Jahr , which I thought was beautifully Romantic (comparable to Chopin, perhaps) and gorgeously played by pianist, Emily Wong
With less than two weeks until Election Day, Donald Trump is, for the most part, still insisting to his supporters that he’s in the lead. While he conceded in one radio interview Monday that he was “somewhat behind in the polls,” Trump said the same day that “I really believe we are winning” and claimed that “Democrats are making up phony polls.” Members of his campaign, though, are openly admitting that the businessman is lagging behind. Trump’s campaign manager, pollster Kellyanne Conway, also conceded that the GOP nominee was trailing, saying Sunday “we are behind.” Although Trump says he no longer believes the polls , his internal data apparently mirrors what publicly available surveys are showing

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs recently fired off an angry tweet about Evan McMullin , the third-party conservative running neck-and-neck with GOP nominee Donald Trump in Utah . McMullin’s strong showing is threatening to hand the state to Democrat Hillary Clinton, or he could win the state’s six electoral votes himself ― a notion that has Trump supporters such as Dobbs steamed enough to blame a “ Mormon Mafia.” Look Deeper, He's nothing but a Globalist, Romney and Mormon Mafia Tool #MAGA #AmericaFirst #TrumpPence16 #TrumpTrain #Dobbs https://t.co/WfjYzck2jt — Lou Dobbs (@LouDobbs) October 23, 2016 Although the tweet was published over the weekend, it was widely retweeted late Wednesday and led to the birth of a new hashtag: # MormonMafia .

One of the most persistent problems facing American higher education is how best to explain its importance and endearing value to the public. The problem is that various perspectives shape the approach utilized. Higher education leadership – especially at the research universities and the liberal arts colleges – often speak to the need for America to produce an educated citizenry.
The question “why war?” has long inspired scholars to seek answers in human nature. Their findings invariably have been ambiguous and judgments inconclusive. While it is easy to make the case that humans do engage in violent behavior as part of their nature, there is no basis for arguing that they are “killers.” There is no propensity to kill fellow humans that prevails over other forms of social inter-action
Donald Trump regularly tells his supporters that the election has been rigged against him, and on Monday he accused Hillary Clinton ’s campaign of utilizing a “ voter suppression technique ” that involved manipulating polls. (Politifact rated his claim “pants on fire” false .)

Liz Lee, Senior Strategist, Gyro While B2B brands may observe the success of Broad City Emojis and see how Red Bull can dominate on Snapchat , they struggle to see the takeaways that can help them communicate their own brand value to the new class of millennial business decision makers. One place to start taking cues is by looking at employer branding and recruitment. Unsurprisingly, the first line of research into the way millennials make decisions in the workplace comes from those who are in charge of attracting and retaining them.
Donald Trump said Tuesday he’d “love” to settle things with Vice President Joe Biden mano a mano.

Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn,” Trump said at a rally in Tallahassee, Florida.
Watching the Australian Government try to navigate the difficult shoals of energy policy in the 21st century is like watching a ship adrift without a compass, or perhaps a map provided by the fossil fuel industry back in 1950. While major emitters in Europe, North America and Asia are setting out structured plans to transition their economies away from the dirty, polluting energy sources of the 19th and 20th centuries – coal, oil and gas – the Australian Government appears to be engaging in a debate that many thought would not still be underway in 2016

One of the several types of signs that can be found on subways, in airports, and in public places in the United States, urging civilians to “report suspicious activity.” Photo courtesy of Mass.Gov Last July, just four days after the attacks on Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, I was about to leave Boston Logan Airport for a trip overseas with a layover in Istanbul. With the recent airport attack and the host of attacks that had occurred over the preceding months, I was a bit uneasy and a lot more aware of my surroundings. While waiting for my flight at Logan Airport, I kept hearing announcements about a security awareness program called SAFE (Security Awareness for Everyone), which urges passengers to report any suspicious behavior.

Along with the Haymarket and Sacco and Vanzetti trials, the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg during the McCarthy-era stands as among the gravest miscarriages of justice in American history. In the last few months, the Rosenberg family has amassed over 13,000 signatures (http://www.rfc.org/ethel) calling on President Obama to issue an executive proclamation nullifying the guilty verdict for Ethel modeled after what Governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts did on the 50th anniversary of Sacco and Vanzetti.

Lincoln Center Theater and Playwrights Horizons, two of New York’s prime non-profits with well-earned reputations for quality plus numerous award-winners between them, both have intimate houses upstairs with small-for-off-Broadway capacities (under 130 seats). The Claire Tow (LCT3) and Peter Jay Sharp (PH) Theaters are often used for adventurous-but-chancy fare, with successful productions subsequently transferred to the mainstage or simply skipping to Broadway. Since both organizations have chosen to open their newest offerings tonight, we have no option but to place them in the very same review.
