An Unexpected (and Largely Unnoticed) Testimony to the Sanctity of Life

The pro-abortion movement basis its arguments on it’s fundamental claim of  “a woman’s right to choose.” Laws, according to this ideology, should guarantee the woman’s freedom of choice and autonomy over her own body. If a woman decides for any reason, at any time, that she does not want to keep the baby, she should have the right to abort. The pro-abortion lobby aims to create as many channels as possible to ensure a woman’s right to choose and to even have tax-payers pay for abortions. Then ca...

Trump attacks on press 'dangerous' and 'reckless': NYT publisher

US President Donald Trump's attacks on the press are "reckless" and "dangerous" and threaten to encourage violence against journalists at home and abroad, the publisher of The New York Times warned on Wednesday. "America's founders believed that a free press was essential to democracy because it is the foundation of an informed, engaged citizenry," A.G. Sulzberger said in a statement. Previous US presidents "had complaints about their coverage and at times took advantage of the freedom every A...

Amazon will survive the HQ2 fiasco. Its bigger problem is winning over reluctant advertisers

Hello! First, if you're a Prime subscriber, we'd love to hear what you think. Please take our quick survey here. What a week it’s been for Amazon. The company accustomed to being slobbered over by local municipalities got a cold welcome when it tried to expand to New York City, and ended up pulling out. It was another sign that the public's goodwill toward big tech is fading.   Amazon's business will be just fine without New York City. But more crucial to its business, and less publicly, it’s t...

The $5 Face Wipes Ariana Grande Swears By

Contrary to what you may have read at the nail salon or in the checkout line, celebrities are not just like us. Last time we checked, we didn't have a private chef, driver, or trainer — although we're totally open to all three — nor do we live in a gated community or vacation on yachts. (Again, we wouldn't mind...) But one way celebrities — even the richest, the most famous, the most successful — actually do seem relatable? They love cheap beauty products.Yes, sometimes even Kylie Jenner and Be...

In a much more candid and reflective conversation than the one he had on TV, 21 speaks with Jon Caramanica about moving from London to Atlanta as a kid, growing up in the U.S. without a VISA, and the nightmare of facing deportation from the country he’s called home for the last 20 years.

Facebook’s Messenger, Instagram and Whatsapp Integration Isn’t Complicated, 8 Things to Know

If you haven’t heard, Facebook announced that it’s working to integrate three major chat platforms — Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp — in order to allow cross-communication for users. This is a huge development. Facebook acquired Instagram in 2012 and WhatsApp in 2014, making this power move possible.

9 photographs that may give you a better sense of the scene of the horrific suicide bomber attack in Kashmir

A peculiar aspect of modern Indian newspaper journalism is the decreasing importance of, and diminishing space for, photographs. Even on major news days, front pages are a veritable dog’s meal, aka thali, with stamp-size pictures giving barely a feel of an event. The deadly suicide-bomber attack in Kashmir which killed nearly 50 Central Reserve Police Force personnel on Valentine’s Day, is a case in point. Here are nine pictures from newspapers which somewhat make up for what may you have mi...

To reduce money in politics, slash the size of government

SACRAMENTO – Like a terrifying demon that returns during the final scene of a horror movie, campaign-finance reform is the “thing” that never goes away. The United States Supreme Court sometimes saves the day, as it did with the First Amendment-related Citizens United case in 2010. Yet reformers always have a new scheme to take “the money out of politics,” even though their last schemes always resulted in more cash influencing political campaigns. The campaign-finance scaremongers are back with ...

There’s Not Much Performance in Denver Schools’ ‘Pay for Performance’ System

On Monday, the Denver Classroom Teachers Association (DCTA) went on strike, the latest in a series of teacher strikes that have erupted across the country over the past year. While Denver teachers have voiced concerns about class sizes, support staff, and starting salaries, the consensus is that the issue at the heart of the strike is teacher frustration with Denver’s once-celebrated ProComp pay system, which was jointly developed by the DCTA and Denver Public Schools in 2005.Back then, ProComp ...

Manafort-Linked PAC Failed To Report $1 Million And The FEC Wants To Know Why

A super PAC closely linked to Paul Manafort is facing questions about why it failed to report a $1 million contribution received just before the 2016 presidential election. In a Tuesday letter, the Federal Election Commission asked the Rebuilding America Now PAC for more information about the contribution, which the PAC first disclosed in an amended report in November 2018—some two years after the fact. The FEC letter raises new questions about the murky financial operations of the PAC, which...

An AT&T exec explained why 'Friends' will likely be pulled from Netflix after this year

Kevin Reilly, the head of content for AT&T's upcoming streaming service, signaled on Monday that "Friends" may not be on Netflix much longer. "Sharing destination assets like that, it's not a good model to share," Reilly said during a Television Critics Association press tour.

CEOs and execs might flock to 'digital detoxes' to break free of their phones, but those detoxes are usually missing the point

"Digital decluttering" means taking a break from technology in order to re-evaluate your tech habits and make permanent changes. That's according to Cal Newport, author of "Digital Minimalism." Newport says "digital detoxes" aren't as effective because you simply go cold turkey on tech and jump right back in. By now it's almost cliché to proclaim that you're "addicted" to your smartphone and need a break. But if you're thinking about embarking on a "digital detox," think again. "Digital detox...

Unsealed Manafort Transcript Reveals Inner Workings Of Mueller Probe

Since Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort’s plea deal fell apart last year amid accusations from prosecutors that he had lied to them (and separate claims in the press that he had funnelled information to President Trump), there’s been little to pierce the veil of what Manafort was discussing with the special counsel prosecutors about their ongoing investigation. But an unsealed, partially redacted transcript of a closed-door hearing in the case — held Monday to determine if Manafort allegedly...

Netflix and HBO are fighting over the original TV crown, but the amount of hours Netflix is putting out is overwhelming

HBO is expected to double the amount of scripted original programming hours it had in 2018 this year, as it goes head-to-head with Netflix in the streaming wars. In total, HBO had 500 hours of original programming in 2018, an HBO spokesperson told Business Insider. But Netflix is still way ahead. The streaming giant put out 2,392 hours of original content last year, according to an estimate by Wall Street firm Cowen and Company.

This Week: Administration Squirms As Congressional Oversight Swings Into Gear

During the State of the Union address Tuesday, President Trump took a jab at the spate of investigations coming his way from House committees, newly under Democratic control. “If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” the President rhymed. Democrats were unimpressed. Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the statement an “all-out threat.” She interpreted the President’s turn of phrase to mean he “wasn’t going to cooperate” on legislation “unless we didn’t exerc...

Profits at The New York Times show media dinosaurs are ruling the internet

Today’s news that the (failing?) New York Times reported net income of $55.2 million, after losses a year earlier — and that its digital business raked in $709 million — is just one indicator that some of the nation’s oldest media properties are finally crossing the bridge into the 21st century. The Times managed to turn a profit while employing 1,600 journalists — an all-time high.
