By Adelyn Zhou Every entrepreneur can likely relate: You wake up each morning to hundreds of unread emails, stare at a to-do list that never seems to die, and schedule meetings on a fully-booked calendar two months out.

Melissa Nelson emerged as the Republican primary winner , earning more than 64 percent of the vote compared to Corey’s 26 percent. A third challenger, Wes White, collected less than 10 percent.

The Center for Media and Democracy has done huge work on this, producing a map of the 2,500 (that’s two thousand, five hundred!) charter schools that closed by 2013. CMD has also ramped up pressure on the US Department of Education, which loves charters, pushes charters, throws money at charters– but in its “transparent” reporting claims to have no idea how many charters have actually closed

Ali Rezaian never lost hope that his brother Jason, a Washington Post reporter who was imprisoned in Iran for 545 days until being released this weekend, would come home. “I knew it would happen at some point,” he told MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski Monday on “Morning Joe.” “The last couple of months have been really rough going through the holidays and what not, but I didn’t believe it was going to happen until he got on the airplane, the plane took off and it was out of Iranian airspace.” Ali, who advocated for Jason’s release since he was first arrested in July 2014 in Tehran, Iran, said he’d heard rumors for some time about the possibility of Jason’s release but told the “Morning Joe” hosts that “by the middle of the week it became apparent.” During the interview, Ali was notified by text message that he could visit his brother, who was being medically evaluated at the U.S. military’s Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany
