Maggie Rogers Inspires Introspection On Debut Album

The world and Pharrell Williams met Maggie Rogers at the same time, effectively. Though she later said she had no idea he would be there, much less that the interaction would be filmed and put on the internet, Pharrell’s reaction to her song “Alaska” went viral; one of the giants of music production told this college student he had zero notes to better her track, “Alaska.” A music sensation was born as the clip made its way through Reddit onto music blogs and Rogers found herself booked to play...

Movies You Won’t Believe Are Based On True Stories

At first glance, the script for War Dogs probably read like an outlandish action comedy.How could a couple of stoner dudes from Miami secure a $300 million contract to supply arms to the U.S. government? How could the Pentagon supply tens of millions of shoddy weapons to Afghani troops fighting Al Qaeda and the Taliban? How could the U.S. government be tricked into purchasing decomposing, 40-year-old munitions that were culled from a Communist surplus stockpile or manufactured cheaply in China ...

Sen. Lisa Murkowski Will Resurrect Bill To Protect Indigenous Women Against Violence

Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp Photo: Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call. One of the issues North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp fought to address during her time in Congress was the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women in the United States. Her legislation, Savanna's Act, would improve federal response to the crisis and provide support to tribes, without requiring additional federal funding. The bill passed unanimously in the Senate in November, but was stalled and allowed to expire by ret...

It retains its rawness and roughness, it’s really young and still somewhat affordable. So there’s a lot of young artists.” – The European city that attracts musical talent ain’t London no more. Take a look at the following list of exceptionally tale...

When Will Midterm Election Results Come In? Here's When Polls Close

Tuesday marks the end of perhaps the most consequential midterm election in recent history. To summarize: A record number of women are running for office, plenty of candidates could make history, people participated in early voting at a rate that outpaced previous midterm elections, and Democrats have a chance at flipping the U.S. House of Representatives. It's, well, a lot.That means that the entire nation will be watching Tuesday night to figure out the results. But since all good things come...

Many Hospitals Don't Have Staff Trained To Do Rape Kits. This Survivor Is Changing That.

In April 2014, Leah Griffin woke up to the realization she had been drugged and violently raped.Griffin, then 28, was bleeding and panicked when she arrived at the the Swedish Medical Center in Ballard, WA. But instead of obtaining the care and the sexual assault forensic exam she needed, she was met with shrugged shoulders. Workers at the hospital told her, "We don’t do rape kits here."The staffers gave Griffin two options: She could drive herself to another hospital further away that did rape...

--> In my days of practicing law, some of the other young male associates were extremely secretive about sharing their personal lives with anyone in the firm. There were two things they did not necessarily want everybody to know about: Whether they were involved in a serious relationship, and Whether or not they had purchased a house. These associates were concerned that if the partners in the law firm knew they were in serious relationships and/or had homes, the partners would be more likely ...

21 Western Novels Every Man Should Read

“The western story, in its most usual forms, represents the American version of the ever appealing oldest of man’s legends about himself, that of the sun-god hero, the all-conquering valiant who strides through dangers undaunted, righting wrongs, defeating villains, rescuing the fair and the weak and the helpless — and the western story does this in terms of the common man, in simple symbols close to natural experience . . . depicting ordinary everyday men, not armored knights or plumed fancy-...

May Fever, and some interesting plans in progress

This past weekend we hosted our annual party for the New England Primrose Society. The National Show was held in Alaska this year, so attendance was down a bit, but we still had just over 20 plant geeks walking through the garden and enjoying home-cooked food and wine. This event always seems to kick off our gardening season. So here's the thing about not working in an air-conditioned office with beige carpets and cubicles - on days like this - mid-May, bright cobalt blue skies, 75 de...
