In the realm of animal protection, the chickens that we eat, known as broilers, have been the proverbial elephant in the room. Their numbers are almost inconceivably vast.

When two dogs lovers get hitched, it looks a little something like this: On Saturday, bride Kathryn Dombrowski, who volunteers at animal rescue Secondhand Hounds , married Brad Ziemer at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Instead of having their wedding party hold floral bouquets for the professional group photos, they asked them to hold pit bull rescue puppies to spread awareness for the “adopt don’t shop” movement ― much like a bridal party in Pennsylvania did last month. Dombrowski told The Huffington Post that she and Ziemer managed to keep the 13 dogs a surprise from their parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girl and ring bearer. “They all thought we were heading outside to take pictures and to their surprise and delight, there were pit bull puppies!” she said

It’s possible your favorite candies may never be the same.

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.

According to the Corporation for National Community Service , 25.3 percent of Americans volunteer, which is 62.8 million volunteers

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.

When they were little and our universe was much smaller… If I could go back and bottle the sweet years when my boys adored me when I was “mommy” or their “girlfriend,” when they told dad that they were going to marry me, and I laughed, but my heart skipped a beat– I’d fill that bottle and store it somewhere safe

It’s often said that Buddhism is built on two core principles – wisdom and compassion. On intensive meditation retreats, I spend most of my time engaged in wisdom-based practice, with mindfulness at the root.

The LGBT civil rights movement has evolved admirably over the past few years to become more inclusive, working against institutional bigotry of all kinds, and grappling with the intersectionalities that exist within all of us. Those multiple identities impact not only how we think of ourselves, but more notably, what others think of us. Unfortunately, some of that progress has empowered the more radical amongst us to act in a brazen, autocratic manner.

Most of us have experienced that sickening moment when you realize you’ve made a serious mistake.

When I tell people I’m a food and body image coach who helps women find peace, sanity and freedom around food, I get asked a lot of questions about how to eat without feeling “crazy” around food: Is it possible to eat what you want and not put on weight? How do I eat cake and not feel guilty?
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.

Having come of age during the Clinton era, I always had a soft spot for Chelsea Clinton. She wasn’t much younger than I was, so to watch her receive heartless slights and vicious criticisms about her appearance and pubescent awkwardness always hit home. Even though I didn’t have a father who was the leader of the free world, I could viscerally relate to Chelsea’s desire to be left alone

Are you thrilled that you can skip over TV ads with your DVR and squelch online ads with an ad-blocker? Don’t get too cocky! As you read this, advertisers are striking back all over the place with in-your-face ads that you literally can’t avoid because — as they boast on Madison Avenue — you’re captive . That’s right: Outside your home, there are still ads that you must watch whether you like it or not.
(Photo: Mauro Grigollo/Getty Images) By Allison P. Davis This October, a study suggested that “runner’s high” was real . We’re not talking about an endorphin rush or a school-counselor-approved “high on life” situation, but an actual high, akin to smoking weed.

It’s as predictable as the terrible twos: Any time groups try to pass a progressive workplace policy, opponents warn of the unintended consequences to jobs and businesses. That has certainly been the case with proposals to establish a family and medical leave insurance fund. The facts say otherwise: A growing body of evidence shows that such a policy does not unintentionally harm businesses or jobs or profitability or the economy.
