What The Election Of 2010 Means For Green: Not Much, by Shari Shapiro

As a self-proclaimed East Coast liberal intellectual who drinks Starbucks Grande Nonfat Decaf Lattes on a regular basis, I woke up this morning after the Mid-term elections of 2010 with a heavy heart.  I thought to myself, as I took public transportation to my office from my energy efficient townhouse in Center City Philadelphia, what will happen to environmental policy in this country? Now that the Republicans have the majority of the House, and spooked the pants off my latte-drinking bretheren on the left, has the green revolution bee...more

California's Battle Royale: In Whitman v. Brown, Advantage Whitman

Resisting the obvious Beauty and the Beast jokes won't be easy. California voters have a choice to make on November 2nd, and after tonight's debate, Jerry Brown cast himself as serene Beauty but his demeanor was more beastly than ever. I could hardly believe my eyes. I remember meeting him during a 1992 presidential primary stop, where he stood in a park near a river and waxed poetic about the Constitution. ...more

Inception; Have we all lost our minds?

Christopher Nolan's movie, 'Inception' projects an engaging psychological approach to the human mind. After two hours and twenty-two minutes, I walked out of the theatre lost in another's reality. My conclusion to the overall concept of the plot? There is no plot. This is not your average story and there are three things that this movie provided me,1. The human mind is vast and complex 2. There is no reality without hope or 'dreams'. 3. As humans our internal drive is to create a 'homeostasis' which relieves us from pain and suffering....more

DIY : What to do with all those Business Cards you got at BlogHer 2010?

If you are like me, you probably came out of BlogHer with a giant pile of business cards, and now you are thinking to yourself as you go through them… where do I put them now?  What can I do with them?  How can I organize them? And I totally have an answer for that!  I am not creative by any means, but I felt like a rocket scientist when I came up with this idea. I am sure it has been done a million times before, but I thought I would share what I did. And also make my first Do It Yourself post. What will you need?...more

Men in Skirts?

About two weeks ago, following June 8 primary night, the big meme in political media was “The Year of the (Republican) Woman.”  Primary victories by the likes of Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina in California, and a strong performance by Nikki Haley in South Carolina, followed on the back of victory the week prior by Susana Martinez in New Mexico.  ...more

World Cup 2010 fever sweeps Britain

Britain are a nation of football-obsessed devotees. So much so, that it is not uncommon to encounter invisible demographic boundaries, which are solely determined by which team you support. When I was young and growing up in Burnley, Lancashire, fans of Burnley football club would never, ever be friends with fans of Blackburn Rovers. In fact, by nature of the fact they supported different clubs, they would instantly be sworn enemies. ...more

The Real Damage Palin/Bachmann Bring

It's only been one day since the Palin/Bachmann rally in Minnesota and I'm already annoyed.  At everyone.  The media-right is in a froth right now about a Palin/Bachmann ticket, one built on their good looks and innuendo-ladened stump speech.  And there's really no way to talk about the event, or the reaction without it creating the equivalence of a hostile-work environment as it's just so charged in a gendered/sexualized fashion, in large part because deep down this country still cannot wrap its collective brain around and not get weirded out by feminine power....more
