While there has certainly been growth in both our economy and our government, the question often arises – “Does the government have our best interest in mind?” A government that focuses on its people is the ultimate goal of any democracy .
A friend of mine just said, why don’t you come up with an idea as to how we can create change instead of just saying where we went wrong. Alright, valid point
For many, it will be a challenging Thanksgiving. Political realities and an environment of hatred and animosity can make a holiday that’s organized around a sense of happiness and gratitude feel obsolete or even inappropriate. Cultivating a sense of thankfulness may feel like the last thing anyone wants to do right now.
Come Thanksgiving , all anyone thinks about is the feast. The stuffing , sides , the pie . Brining , cooking and carving of the turkey.

This second article in my series about the absurdly productive trans-national art star Jan Fabre (the first is here ) has very little to do directly with him or his work. Rather, it is about the State Hermitage Museum, one of the wonders of the world. We take a look at it because it is on this field which Fabre agreed to stake a claim.

The recent supermoon loomed on the horizon like a gigantic orange balloon, bigger than most of us had ever seen it before.

It took six years, but Charlene DeWindt, 58, of Newport News, Va., is now an electrician. She’s also a production planner and scheduler at Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII is the largest military shipbuilding company in the United States), earning more than $50,000 a year.

WASHINGTON – After responsible stewardship of the nuclear arsenal, perhaps the most import role an American president sets is setting a tone that guides how millions of people will act. In the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump, acts of violence and intimidation against the groups that he singled out during the campaign have been reported across the country, and are being tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Ethiopian immigrant Yemaj Adem, for instance, was attacked in Grand Rapids on November 12th by a man in his cab who started punching him and shouting “Trump! Trump! Trump!” The man was arrested, and continued making racist comments about Adem in the back of the police car

News of the incident caused the #NameAPenceMusical hashtag to globally trend on the micro-blogging service, with users putting their own Pence spin on classic musical shows
Trying to have any meaningful discussion about the climate change crisis with someone who rejects mainstream science is a recipe for frustration. And with a president-elect who has said climate change is “ bullshit ” and a “ hoax ,” it’s likely many family holiday celebrations this year will include unproductive and, shall we say, spirited banter.

The barrier around a gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo was not in compliance with regulations when a 3-year-old boy fell into the enclosure in May, according to a federal investigation. Zoo officials questioned the finding by pointing out the barrier passed muster with federal authorities about a month before the boy’s fall. “In its 38-year history, the barrier system at Gorilla World has always been found compliant during USDA inspections,” a statement from the zoo said. A member of an animal response team fatally shot a Western lowland gorilla named Harambe on May 28 after determining that the ape posed an imminent threat to the child. The animal’s death unleashed a public fury that was directed both at the child’s mother and at the zoo for its decision to use lethal force. Inspectors from the U.S.

By Jacquie West Courage in the face of fear is not for the faint of heart, especially for those whose hearts are broken. The first Saturday after this country’s national election could have been spent any number of ways: doing chores, watching college football, working, or simply avoiding anything political, but for those of us fortunate enough to answer an invitation, we decided to try a ” Living Room Conversation ,” a simple model for civil discourse at The Utah Citizens Summit, on Saturday November 12th, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Before I launched my 365-Day writing project , I came up with a 13-page (10 point font, 1.5-spaced) list of ideas. In the early days of the project, this numbered list guided me; I’d even used the strikethrough feature to cross out the topics I wrote about. As the year progressed and the calendar pages flipped faster than the leaves fell off the trees, I couldn’t keep up with the old stories on the list because new narratives were consistently presenting themselves for write-ups It was easier to write about something which happened today than to dig deep into my subconscious to recall a story from childhood or adolescence; something which helped define me, shape me, or gave me membership into a “life club.” Whatever crazy shit happens to us as humans, the “life club” concept is designed to help us feel like we’re not alone; we can always find someone who can relate, no matter how ludicrous our situation or experience may seem

The changing configuration of landscapes and the increasing natural catastrophes that we are being confronted to are a clear demonstration that climate change is one of the most pressing global challenges of this age. And as a global challenge only a concerted action by world governments in an urgent and effective manner will help us save thousands of lives now and for future generations, because the harmful effects of climate change affect us all, being the effects even more harmful for developing countries, as these have less resources to adapt

President-elect Donald Trump left reporters in the dark about his whereabouts Tuesday night, continuing a pattern of restricting press access and setting up a dangerous precedent for the press covering the Trump administration.

Trump’s transition team had told the reporters there would be no more news for the day, indicating Trump would remain at Trump Tower for the night
A large stretch of road that was swallowed by a massive sinkhole in southwestern Japan has reopened just one week after its collapse. It took just two days for workers in the coastal city of Fukuoka to fill in the hole ― described as 98 feet long and 49 feet deep ― and repair the road and water mains, according to local reports. The city reportedly spent the following days testing the road to make sure it was safe before opening it to the public Tuesday morning.

It’s no secret that we’re bombarded with bothersome headlines more often than pleasant ones.
Megan Kelly gained national attention when she moderated the first Republican primary debate last August, where she faced off with then-Republican candidate Donald Trump. During the debate, she asked the then candidate, Trump, about derogatory comments she said he made about women, from calling them “fat pigs” to “dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” The Advice That Megyn Kelly Says Hit Her ‘Like A Lightning Bolt’ In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil airing Tuesday, Kelly says there’s a backstory to that moment, which she opens up about for the first time in her new memoir, “Settle For More.” “Once he announced his candidacy for president, one of the stories that broke about him and it was significant news in the lead-up to that debate, it was July of 2015, was that in his divorce proceeding from his first wife, Ivana …”

Undocumented immigrants didn’t have a vote or a voice at the ballot box on Election Day, so many have turned to social media to speak out.

Fox News host Sean Hannity apparently believes that CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times should be excluded from the White House press corps while Donald Trump is president.

John Oliver summed up many people’s feelings on Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight” when he named 2016 “the fucking worst,” and tried to make sense of Donald Trump ’s victory. All roads led back to the same important question: “What the fuck do we do now?” “We’re going to need to stay here and fight, and not just politically in four years when he’s up for reelection, but constantly, monitoring legislation as it moves through Congress, and fucking voting when your legislators come up for reelection in two years,” Oliver said.
Dear “ Sex and the City ” fans, Kim Cattrall wants a spinoff just as much as you do. On Saturday, the actress, who played Samantha Jones on the HBO series, responded to rumors about a “SATC” spinoff show, giving us some much-needed hope in the wake of last week’s series of depressing events . Replying to a segment from “The Wendy Williams Show,” which speculated Cattrall is in talks with the cable network to star in a new series, the 60-year-old said, “I’m so unbelievably flattered & moved.

NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES – Chanting “Not my president” and “love trumps hate,” thousands of demonstrators took the streets in cities across the United States on Saturday to protest against President-elect Donald Trump , who they say threatens their civil and human rights. The biggest rallies were in New York , Los Angeles and Chicago, where organizers said they wanted to build on the momentum after several nights of protests triggered by the real-estate mogul’s surprise win in Tuesday’s presidential election.
