Women’s March Returns To DC, Other Cities

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Women’s March returned to Washington on Saturday and found itself coping with an ideological split and an abbreviated route due to the government shutdown. The original march in 2017, the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, drew hundreds of thousands of people. The exact size of the turnout remains subject to a politically charged debate, but it’s generally regarded as the largest Washington protest since the Vietnam era. Organizer this year submitted a perm...

Trump’s Companies Boosted Foreign Worker Visas To 10-Year High In 2018

President Trump may have ratcheted up his anti-immigration efforts in recent months, but his family companies appear to be using foreign workers at a higher rate than ever before. The Trump Organization requested and received at least 192 visas for foreign workers in 2018, according to Department of Labor data. That number appears to be the highest for the company going back to at least 2008 and likely much earlier, based on public records. The nearly two decades’ worth of data were pulled to...

Brexit T-shirts: artist Jeremy Deller sums up in two words what millions are thinking

Deller’s sweary protest T-shirts are a welcome blast of humour into the stagnant Brexit debateWhen I was a teenager in the 80s, we all had badges – “Don’t blame me, I voted Labour” badges, and “Protest and survive” badges (an anti-nuclear slogan, riffing on the government information films, Protect and Survive), and badges with a great big smiling sun on them, the beginning of climate consciousness. (My cousin once pulled a policeman in a nightclub, and when she put her coat on and he saw the ba...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reaches more people on Twitter than the press and establishment Democrats

'Captain America: The First Avenger' Stands Out in a Glut of Comic Book Films

None Discussions of the mythical "superhero fatigue" were in full swing in the summer of 2011, and the concept has been raised every time a superhero film is considered a critical or commercial disappointment. The basis of superhero fatigue is the idea that audiences will grow tired of the neverending glut of big-budget comic book films, and will stop seeing them en masse. It's quaint to think of film bloggers in 2011 foretelling the imminent implosion of the genre when, seven years later, mega...
