Through the platform of A Humane Nation , I report on so many good developments for animals — from retailers switching to cage-free or crate-free animal products, to major companies going fur-free, to the swell of global outrage over the killing of endangered animals for trophies or profit, to the recent burst of federal rule-making actions for animals. But make no mistake, we are still in a fight for the lives of animals, and there are special interests and lawmakers beholden to them who want to thwart our progress.

Khloe Kardashian has some stiff competition for the best #TBT picture of all time. Hilary Duff posted an adorable childhood shot on Thursday, in which she looks every inch the pageant queen. Wearing a black top paired with ginormous diamond earrings and perfectly coiffed blond hair, little Duff is smiling as wide as she can.

Adobe Systems Inc issued an emergency update on Thursday to its widely used Flash software for Internet browsers after researchers discovered a security flaw that was being exploited to deliver ransomware to Windows PCs. The software maker urged the more than 1 billion users of Flash on Windows, Mac, Chrome and Linux computers to update the product as quickly as possible after security researchers said the bug was being exploited in “drive-by” attacks that infect computers with ransomware when tainted websites are visited.

The most annoying thing about pro athletes who happen to be sons of fathers who were also pro athletes is that so many of them exude an obnoxious sense of privilege and entitlement. For not only did they grow up in affluent families, but given the extent to which we idolize our celebrity athletes, they grew up thinking they were special
Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime performance of her newly released single “Formation” was amazing — but beyond the singing, it was the style she and her dancers rocked that really caught our attention. One look at the army of black women rocking leather outfits, afros and black berets and we were instantly reminded of the revolutionary members of the Black Panther Party . At one point, Beyoncé and her dancers even raised black power fists in the air marking an important public declaration of black pride

(Reuters) – A 11-year-old Tennessee boy has been found guilty of fatally shooting an 8-year-old neighbor girl with a shotgun in a fight over puppies, and will spend the rest of his childhood in state custody, court documents showed on Saturday. Benjamin Tiller was found guilty early last week of first-degree murder in the October slaying of McKayla Dyer in a trailer park in White Pine, a small town about 42 miles (68 km) east of Knoxville, according to a court order from Tuesday. “Mr.

There’s a famous scene in the 1975 movie The Stepford Wives in which human robot Paula Prentiss suffers a massive circuitry meltdown. Over and over she dumps coffee grounds on the kitchen counter, smashes breakfast mugs on the floor, and utters her pre-programmed catch-phrases in an endless loop. In the final Republican debate before the New Hampshire presidential primary, something similar happened to Marco Rubio
Unlike the 141 billionaires who have pledged to give away at least half of their wealth to charity through the “Giving Pledge,” an effort started by philanthropists Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates, most of us don’t have the big extra dollars to help out our favorite charities. So the vast majority of Americans need to help by volunteering their services instead. According to the Corporation for National Community Service , 25.3 percent of Americans volunteer, which is 62.8 million volunteers
Many painful emotional issues face family members and friends when a loved one becomes terminally ill. These include communicating the diagnosis to others; overcoming denial that the person is, in fact, near death; feeling the need to “be strong” and hide their sadness for the benefit of the patient and others; dealing with anticipatory grief; handling the physical and emotional exhaustion of intensive caregiving; and deciding when or whether to engage hospice care services

Patient Advocates Hope Report will Help State Legislators “Make the Grade” in 2016 With the recent release of the Americans for Safe Access (ASA) report “Medical Marijuana Access in the US: A Patient-Focused Analysis of the Patchwork of State Laws,” state lawmakers now have the tools they need to improve medical cannabis programs to truly meet the needs of the patients they are meant to serve.
Waiting with a neighbor at the bus stop the other day, I heard that PARCC results are starting to trickle out in Maryland, where I live. PARCC, of course, is one of the new assessments intended to help inform parents and educators whether students are on track to graduate from high school ready for either college or career training. Eleven states administered PARCC in the spring, and because these new tests have multi-step problems and require much more in the way of knowledge and skill than most of the old state tests, a student who was proficient on old state tests may no longer be considered proficient by PARCC standards.
“The best resolution.” “A path to the progressive world.” “Nothing more than a piece of paper.” These are the some of the ways Iranians inside Iran described the nuclear deal to the WorldPost in August, when we partnered with the Washington-based Iranian human rights organization Abdorrahman Boroumand Foundation and used Facebook and the app Telegram to get — and translate from Farsi — reactions from inside the country. Back then, the deal was simply an agreement announced by Iran and six world powers.

Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has attracted an enormous following of millennials – the diverse group of millennials who sat on stage behind Sanders at his town meeting in Carroll, Iowa on Tuesday showed as much. But surprisingly, the audience facing Sanders at noon Tuesday was mainly made up of older generations. Sanders is currently polling 2-1 with millennials against democratic opponent Hilary Clinton, according to an NBC poll

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — An ex-prosecutor is expected to testify that he promised Bill Cosby would never be charged over a 2005 sex-assault complaint, but a judge must decide if that constitutes an immunity deal. Then-prosecutor Bruce Castor will be a key witness for the defense at a Feb. 2 hearing over what Cosby’s lawyers have called a “non-prosecution agreement.” The defense argues that prosecutors who charged Cosby last month unfairly used his deposition testimony from the accuser’s civil lawsuit against him
While principal organizers of the upcoming Royal Society meeting on a paradigm shift to a more sublime evolutionary synthesis are mum about exactly who’s invited to speak, I’ve compiled a list of likely presenters — which follows — based on a range of sources. The meeting scheduled for November 7-9 is a public one, co-sponsored by the British Academy for the humanities and social sciences. Prime movers of the event are: Oxford physiologist and Royal Society Fellow, Denis Noble — who has already made his case on this page for replacing the modern synthesis; Sir Patrick Bateson , FRS, who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 2003 for his service to biology and currently serves as president of the Zoological Society of London; Nancy Cartwright, Lady Hampshire , a University of Durham/University of California-San Diego philosopher of science and Fellow of the British Academy; John Dupré , a philosopher of biology at the University of Exeter whose interest is in the “processes of life” and their relevance to society; and Kevin Laland , whose research focus at the University of St.

I remember every detail of a recent exchange I had with my colleagues, and I think I always will. I was speaking with a team at our firm who told me how they had helped a global client achieve one of its most important priorities — data integrity — by developing predictive algorithms to detect data deviations. I know what you’re thinking: Why was I so interested in data algorithms
If you’re protecting important personal accounts with nothing more than a few security questions, it may be time for an upgrade. A study from Google recently compared the use of security questions to other account recovery methods like SMS (short text messages) and an alternative email address. It found that true or made-up responses to questions like, “What was your mother’s maiden name?” or specific answers to prompts such as “Favorite Superhero,” “First Car” or “Childhood Phone Number,” weren’t a reliable way to recover or protect an account.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush-era No Child Left Behind education law has long been criticized as unworkable, too punitive and in need of repair. After years of trying, Congress is finally on the verge of rewriting the 2002 law
On the 25th of this month the world will recognize an issue that is so pervasive and present that at least 30 percent of the global population is directly affected by or engaged in it: violence against women. That figure includes an estimated 15 percent of the male population of the world: where there are the abused there also are the abusers

BOGOTA, Nov 11 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Guatemala has raised the minimum age for marriage to 18, but women’s rights campaigners said enforcing the new law would be a challenge in a country where nearly one-third of girls are currently married by that age.

After police unions across the country called for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino’s films in response to comments he made about police brutality, the director appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday night to clarify his position. “The unions are saying that I am a cop hater, which is slander because I didn’t say that,” the “Pulp Fiction” director told Maher.

Noise levels have grown, tables are stacked closer and closer together, and glass and hardwood are all the rage for decor, leaving even less cushioning or carpet behind for sound absorption. Layer hearing loss on top of all this, and dining out can be quite a challenge
Adam is a married father of seven whose mother-in-law calls him abusive, controlling, disrespectful, rude, vulgar and selfish. Watch her story here. But Adam claims his mother-in-law “stirs the pot.” In the video above, he says, “I do believe that Marilyn is trying to sabotage my marriage and be a homewrecker.” While living in Marilyn’s home with his wife, Miranda, and their three kids, he offended his mother-in-law when he referred to himself as “king of the castle.” He explains, “I did say I was king of the castle, because my rules are my rules.

Miami beat Duke 30-27 Saturday night on a ridiculous game-winning kickoff return that featured eight laterals and just all around chaos on the field. Miami appeared to have been moving backwards after the first seven laterals, but on the eighth, Miami cornerback Corn Elder caught the ball from his own nine yard line and ran 91 yards. In the stats, it was a 75-yard return, but they ended up covering much more of the field than that. During Elder’s scamper to the end zone, there was a block delivered that was originally ruled a block in the back and would have negated the touchdown.

It has been said that racism is America’s original sin. And today, well into our country’s third century, we are far from free of it. “Separate but equal” is no longer the law of the land, but for too many people, it is still a fact of life
Bernie blew it. By embracing rather than confronting Hillary Clinton, Sen. Sanders fell into the trap of sellout mainstream politics, improving his personal brand as an appealing but ultimately non-threatening advocate for the downtrodden while studiously avoiding any suggestion that the smiley-faced woman standing next to him is deeply complicit in Wall Street’s rape of the nation
Whenever China is mentioned in a presidential campaign, the consequences are rarely good. In 2012 residents of Ohio, where anti-Beijing ads proliferated, might have believed that the campaign hinged on which candidate was tougher on China.
There is a powerful movement in the United States to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour. That’s the amount necessary for a family of four to live just above the national poverty line. But there are hundreds of thousands of workers in this country who have been left out of this fight, who will never benefit no matter how much the minimum wage is raised, and who share one characteristic.

With Hillary Clinton, the most serious female Presidential candidate in election history headlining tonight’s Democratic debate, (and Carly Fiorina’s standout performance in the last Republican debate) the influence and interests of women voters will be a major factor in the Presidential campaign. If the trends of the past 35 years hold, women will make up the majority of voters in 2016.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two people suspected of critically injuring a man outside Dodger Stadium are believed to be a mother and son, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Tuesday. Police declined to discuss what precipitated the fight on Friday night, but Beck said detectives were reviewing video that captured the assault in hopes of tracking the pair down. Police described the mother as being in her 40s or 50s, and her son as being between 25 and 30.
