Some critics are finding Stephen Curry’s new shoes a good fit — for jokes. ” These $120 sneakers look like they should sport the name of a shuffleboard player, not an NBA superstar,” New York Magazine wrote. More…
In January, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) made an announcement that rendered science textbooks everywhere out-of-date: Four new elements had been added to the Periodic Table . The elements, which had made the scientific chart’s seventh row officially complete, didn’t have the sexiest names. Temporarily dubbed 113, 115, 117 and 118, IUPAC said the elements would receive official names in the subsequent months
This week, I will be joining nearly 800 local, state and federal thought leaders and policymakers committed to expanding supportive housing to create more opportunities for vulnerable individuals and families to move into permanent, stable homes where they can receive the services necessary to stay housed and healthy.

We can all look back and wish we had managed our finances differently — if only someone had taught us the dangers of debt and the benefits of long-term regular investing.

Any bartender or bar owner will tell you, the job isn’t always glamorous. The challenges of staying successful go beyond keeping glasses full.

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton frequently emphasizes that she is a “proud Democrat” who wants to help elect other Democrats, contrasting herself with rival Bernie Sanders. While Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont, has set grassroots fundraising records for his own candidacy, Clinton’s campaign has criticized him for not doing more to help raise the profile of progressive candidates for federal and state offices as he rallies his supporters. Sanders had previously said, “ We’ll see , ” when asked whether he would fundraise on behalf of other candidates

The mainstream media and politicians have emphasized Iran’s hard power, military capacity and its army’s role in the Middle East, which is part of Tehran’s expansionist policies. The emphasis is warranted. Nevertheless, focusing solely on Iran’s hard power and military capacity is misplaced.

Note: I write as one who has supported Bernie from the beginning, and voted for him in the Virginia primary. Various good commentators are noting that Bernie has lately been campaigning in a way that fails to deal honestly with the reality that the race for the nomination is over and that is making more likely the election of Donald Trump to the presidency. ( For example .) More..

A back-and-forth battle in Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference Finals led to a surprising early-series deficit for the Golden State Warriors.

The initial spark for this piece was going to be this story out of Philly , where parents are shocked, upset and frustrated to learn that the charter their children are attending is bailing on them at the end of this year. But at this stage of the game “Charter Closes Doors and Abandons Students” is completely unremarkable, like breathless coverage of the sun rising in the East. 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

We are so busy with our work and lifestyle that we sometimes neglect the most important foundation of good health – sleep.

Nicola Thorp was dismissed from her temp job at a finance company in the UK after she refused to wear high heels. Since then, her story has garnered a ton of attention online, the company who dismissed her changed its dress code policy and more than 100,000 people have signed a petition in support of changing laws that allow employers to make women wear high heels to work. On top of signing the petition, though, people who agree that the policy is completely absurd are also tweeting pictures of their flat shoes in solidarity with Thorp. More…

On almost any given issue, Donald Trump has taken contradictory positions: He has said he wants to lower, raise and abolish the federal minimum wage, cut and raise taxes on the wealthy, completely pay off the national debt and default on the debt. And those are just a few of his most recent flip-flops.
