When Muhammad Ali refused to take the oath of induction into the U.S. Army in 1967 in Houston, Texas, he became a hero to those that were against the war, but he also became toxic to many that were in favor of it and even to some of those in the mainstream.

This election cycle has been heavy on rhetoric and light on policy. Given that nearly 50% of Americans consider themselves angrier than a year ago – with white Republicans being the angriest – it’s no wonder that rather than having substantive discussions, most solutions being offered currently are knee jerk reactions that have little to no factual support. A prime example of this are the changes many conservatives endorse for “fixing” public education

Of all the worries expressed over a Trump presidency (e.g., We’ll lose the respect of the world, He’ll deport the Mexicans, He’ll prohibit Muslims from entering the U.S., He’ll repeal Roe v.

In a 336-minute, seven-game series, the Golden State Warriors needed less than 170 seconds in the third quarter to dismantle, dishearten and dispose of the Oklahoma City Thunder, doing what they do best and knocking down five treys in three minutes to earn their second consecutive berth in the NBA Finals with a 96-88 victory Monday night. Of course, it started and ended with Stephen Curry.

Dealing With IRS Notices

16May

In the past, the first thing I’d tell you about IRS notices would be “don’t panic.” These days, while staying calm is still important, the first thing you need to do is make sure the notice is authentic and is really from the IRS. There are so many scams involving taxpayers information that in the past week at least seven #IRS tweets warned of scams ranging from phishing for payroll information to scammers trying to collect “past due taxes.” The IRS sends millions of notices and letters for many different reasons

The No Child Left Behind Act, the controversial Bush-era education law, promoted an emphasis on reading and math, sometimes at the expense of other subjects. Now, the nation’s new education secretary is calling on schools to expand their focus to other subjects and give students a more balanced set of course offerings.  Secretary John King Jr. — who was confirmed in March  — is expected to tout the benefits of a “well-rounded education” in a speech at the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts on Thursday.

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.
