Reports of anti-Semitic, racist and anti-immigrant incidents at schools around the country have spread rapidly in the days since Donald Trump  became President-elect Trump.

Elon Musk is expected to unveil a new solar roofing product for his energy company, SolarCity, this week. Based on what Musk has already said about the product, his solar roofing would put the photovoltaic cells used to generate electricity from the sun in the shingles themselves, instead of in a system of solar panels on a roof.

The Detroit News is the latest newspaper to deviate from conservative tradition .  The paper has supported Republicans since its inception 143 years ago (though the editorial board has not published any endorsement of a presidential candidate three times in its history). But its editorial board wrote on Thursday that it had abandoned “that long and estimable tradition” of endorsing GOP presidential candidates this year for one reason: “Donald J

Mitt Romney delivered some searing criticism of Donald Trump ‘s presidential campaign on Friday, hitting the presumptive Republican nominee for his own attacks on Latinos, Muslims and women.  “I simply can’t put my name down as someone who voted for principles that suggest racism or xenophobia, misogyny, bigotry, for someone who’s been vulgar time and time again,” Romney, one of the GOP’s most vocal Trump critics, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “I don’t want to be associated with that in any way, shape or form.” More…

With the first day of summer less than two weeks away, it’s the perfect time to talk about enjoying the sun safely, cooling down with healthy sips, and exercising in the great outdoors. It’s one of my favorite times of the year because we have more time to relax and if we’re lucky enough, take a well-deserved vacation. Before you kick back at the beach, pool, or simply on your back porch, remember to keep these summer safety tips in mind.

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James stepped in front of Steph Curry Wednesday night with less than three minutes remaining in the third and and got his fingertips on a lazily lobbed Golden State Warriors pass. After nearly falling to the ground, James sent the rock ahead to Kyrie Irving, who tossed it near the rim, leading LeBron into the one-handed oop

Following the widespread coverage of last week’s  sentencing of Brock Turner , a former Stanford University student convicted of sexual assault , some readers have asked where his mugshot is — given that coverage of other criminals generally includes photos alluding to their crime.  On Monday, The Huffington Post obtained a copy of his latest booking photo.

I grew up in a home in Delaware listening to voices speak Turkish in the kitchen while I watched English television in the living room. Like many immigrant children, conversations took place in multiple languages in my house. And like many immigrant families, my parents understood that while there was no requirement to abandon their heritage when moving to America, the limited availability of foreign media in that era meant certain cultural sacrifices.

Recently, The WorldPost published an interview with “Sapiens” author Yuval Harari in which he envisioned a future where “organisms become algorithms” as computer and biological sciences converge. In a response, Deepak Chopra writes this week that being cannot be reduced to an algorithm, nor can the mind be reduced to the wiring of the brain which artificial intelligence strives to mimic. “Of all the weird contradictions that plague modern life,” Chopra says, “the strangest is the collapse of philosophy with the triumph of science.

This clip shares the most unforgettable experience I’ve had in two months of travel. Traveling through countries that spent 45 years in what locals here call “the Soviet club,” it’s fascinating to see how an ideology that preached equality for all built gigantic monuments that impoverished the very workers for whom the ideology was designed to serve. That’s the case on a mountaintop in Bulgaria where we visited a conference center built for the 100th anniversary of the founding of what became the Bulgarian Communist Party.

Paul Ryan is undoubtedly hoping his phone call with Donald Trump will result in a pledge for a bunch of education block grants, though let’s be honest, it’ll will probably just end with the real estate mogul calling him “Puny Paul.” Trump’s campaign spokeswoman accidentally emailed sensitive information to a reporter with the same last name as an RNC official, which is why we are both changing our names to “Huma Lewandowski.” And some some Democrats on the Hill want to dump Debbie Wasserman Schultz as DNC chair. Previously, Pat Leahy’s love of comic book characters was the only thing establishment Hill Democrats had in common with Bernie Bros

Transcripts of a recorded conversation between then Senator Romero Jucá, and former oil industry executive Sergio Machado, indicate that what many people suspected about the impeachment of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is true: some of the most corrupt and powerful politicians in Brazil are using impeachment as a means of protecting themselves and their power. It is of course deeply ironic: Dilma, who is not accused of any corruption, is being impeached by corrupt members of Congress whose power is threatened by the unprecedented capacity that she gave prosecutors and the judiciary to go after corruption

An Embarrassment of Riches

Embed from Getty Images When Governor Chris Christie famously said, “I don’t consider myself a wealthy man,” the $699,000 earner with a net worth of $3.8 million may be excused for his confusion; he didn’t have this handy calculator to set him straight. The Pew Research Center’s latest tool for determining who’s rich and who’s not brings reality to the fore, but class delusion has a funny way of enduring despite the facts

Every May, we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in our nation’s armed forces. Across our country, we’ll hear from politicians about the importance of “supporting our troops,” and “leaving no veteran behind.” These are great soundbites, but fifteen years removed from 9/11–and in the wake of scandals at the VA, a mental health crisis that claims the lives of 22 veterans every day, and unacceptably high unemployment levels among our newest generation of returning warriors, it’s past time to define what this really means. Too often, actions simply don’t match the rhetoric
