All We Did Was Survive: The State of the Pro-Life Movement Under President Trump

ABSTRACT: The pro-life movement in America seemed in dire straits in 2016, with losses on almost every front. Donald Trump’s surprising win appears to have stalled the abortion juggernaut.

We asked Scott Klusendorf, president of Life Training Institute, to give a state of the movement on the pro-life cause under t...

LAUSD teachers went on strike in 1989. But are the stakes higher in 2019?

Whether they were stuck in an auditorium or playing long-term hooky, many a school kid old enough to remember the 1989 Los Angeles teachers strike recalls the period as nine days of good old-fashioned lawlessness. Quoted in a New York Times article at the time, LAPD Lieut. Frank Valdez expressed his concern about “little predators” roaming LA’s downtown streets. “The problem kids are not going to go to school and it’s going to create problems all over, not just on campus,” he said during the str...

Amazon, the leader in smart speakers and voice assistants, seemed to be convinced that it does when it introduced the $60 AmazonBasics Microwave in September. This week, the first reviews of the device came out, and while I’m not an avid reader of gadget reviews, I was interested to see what impression Amazon’s new venture would create. I found TechCrunch’s profile of the Amazon microwave, aptly written by Sarah Perez, an interesting...

The Empty Bernabeu Sums Up Real Madrid’s Season

Santiago Solari has lost the aura of the confidence he had a couple of months ago. He was chastised by Marca last week for saying: ‘We mustn’t underestimate the draws’.
