WASHINGTON ― White nationalists tried repeatedly throughout the presidential campaign to sanitize their language to appeal to mainstream voters as they threw their efforts behind electing Donald Trump .   White nationalists who tried to play down their white nationalism won a victory this week as the president-elect not only chose Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon as his chief strategist ― a man who heads a website that regularly airs white nationalist viewpoints ― but many news outlets also are reluctant to use the specific label “white nationalist,” instead calling Bannon a “ flame-throwing outsider ” and a “ nationalist media mogul. ” Of course, calling a person a “white nationalist” who hasn’t self-identified as one is somewhat fraught.

After we turn 50, we all start to worry about cardiovascular disease and what to do about it. We might also fret about dementia and whether we will get Alzheimer’s — and arthritis is an ailment we prefer to do without. The inability to sleep, loss of energy, fatigue, anxiety, and depression might rear their ugly heads as well.

Apple was as much of a wake up call to today’s design world as Sputnik was, in the last century, to the field of space exploration – no more “business as usual.” Overnight, everyone from corporations and governments to educational institutions and NGOs scrambled to get up to speed with the more design-centric organizations such as Apple, Nike, BMW and IKEA. A favored way to ramp up was to hire consultancies like IDEO, Frog or DesignworksUSA to develop one’s design strategy. Today, a better approach may be to systematically build design and innovation capabilities into the fabric of one’s organizational culture

The Huffington Post’s College Sleep Tour is sparking a lot of conversation on social media and in the pages of college newspapers about the importance of sleep for students.  The College Sleep Tour is hitting 16 campuses through April and May, and started last week . Arianna Huffington, founder and editor-in-chief of HuffPost, says she wants the tour to spark a #SleepRevolution where students start rejecting the notion that they cannot have a social life, good grades, and still get the sleep their body needs.  Over the past several months, students have blogged on HuffPost about the existing toxic culture around sleep on many campuses. “The pressure I put on myself is a direct consequence of my choice not to sleep

Regardless of whether or not you’re a routine-oriented person, your body likes to stick to a pretty tight schedule.  Scientists have long known that our bodies have internal clocks , which regulate the physical, mental and behavioral changes that we experience over a roughly 24-hour cycle. We evolved to have a biological clock to help our bodies adapt to Earth’s daily cycles and research suggests that nearly every organ in our bodies follows this hidden, biological timekeeping: Our hearts, livers and digestive tracts all have their own internal schedules to help us perform at our very best.

The big story on Thursday night wasn’t just Stanford’s convincing 56-35 win over UCLA , but a single incredible catch.  In what’s already being called college football’s ” catch of the year ” and one of the best of all time, Stanford’s Francis Owusu  pulled off a play that has to be seen to be believed. Even then, you might need to watch it a couple more times:   Here’s Cardinal coach David Shaw’s reaction:   SAME @CoachDavidShaw #Pac12FB #Pac12AfterDark pic.twitter.com/GZ8JyXALVF — Pac-12 Networks (@Pac12Networks) October 16, 2015 The play was reminiscent of Alabama wide receiver Tyrone Prothro’s catch against Southern Mississippi almost a decade ago on Oct. 10, 2005.  ESPN created a clip showing the two incredible catches side-by-side:  Tyrone Prothro vs Francis Owusu.

The Case for Kim Davis: Part Two

15Sep

The responses to my column ” The Case For Kim Davis ” are for the most part thoughtful and raise important issues. I say “for the most part” because I want to set aside as not in the ballpark comments like, “Religious beliefs are absurd in the first place,” or, “All religion is fiction.” Those who make statements like these or deride religion as a vestige of medieval ignorance (actually, the Middle Ages were enormously sophisticated) announce that they can’t take the Kim Davis matter seriously — they can’t take seriously the dilemma of someone who finds her legal and contractual obligations in tension with her obligations to God. It is as if someone invited into a discussion of the Common Core curriculum were to say, “I don’t believe in education.” He would not be contributing to the discussion, but trashing it in advance, and the genuine participants in the conversation would be within their rights to say (as I say now to the religion-haters), ‘Well, you’ve opted out so go sit in your corner and be quiet.’ I am not so ready to dismiss those who regard religion as a hobby (like stamp collecting or bungee jumping) or an ornament (there’s all that nice music and those gorgeous vestments) that is perfectly alright if it keeps its place, but something that must give way to more serious things like the rule of law

A bill being considered  in the House that would restrict colleges from punishing students accused of sexual assault is meeting near-universal opposition from advocacy organizations who work with rape victims. The Safe Campus Act, originally sponsored by Republican Reps. Matt Salmon of Arizona, and Pete Sessions and Kay Granger of Texas, would prohibit colleges and universities from punishing a student accused of sexual assault and battery unless the reporting victim also goes to police with the complaint.  Twenty-five advocacy organizations working with sexual assault victims contacted by The Huffington Post in recent days said they are opposed to the bill
