'Affluenza' Mom Tonya Couch Has Curfew Eased So She Can Find A Job 21.6.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
The mother of the Texas “affluenza” teenager had her curfew eased, her attorney said on Monday, in her first court appearance since being charged by a grand jury last month with helping her son flee to Mexico. Tonya Couch, 49, was indicted by a Tarrant County grand jury on charges of hindering apprehension and money laundering for aiding her son Ethan Couch in violating a probation deal that kept him out for jail for killing four people while driving drunk in 2013. The curfew easing came at a hearing that lasted a few minutes before a district court judge. Her lawyer said after the session that the change will make it easier for her to find a job. He did not provide other details on the curfew. Couch, and her son, Ethan, 19, drew international attention last winter after fleeing the United States. He had apparently violated the probation deal that he stay drug- and alcohol-free after the deadly wreck. At his trial in juvenile court in 2013, a psychologist testified in Ethan Couch’s defense that the then ...

Understanding the Sustainable Lifestyle 6.6.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
What is a lifestyle? It's a weird word, but it is what people do with their time: work, recreation, entertainment, travel, social life, family life, religious life, education/learning, hobbies, and so on. It also includes the setting within which they undertake these activities--where someone lives, where they work, where they hang out, and where they pray (if they pray). What does any of this have to do with sustainability? A person can spend their time and enjoy that time by consuming resources at a ferocious rate or at a moderate rate. You could, for example, live on a five-acre estate with a 15,000 square foot home and work out in your own private gym, and entertain in a home theater with a 30 seat screening room, swimming pool and barbecue. Or you could live in a 1,500 square foot apartment, workout at a commercial gym, go with friends to a movie theater, swim at a public beach and have a meal in a restaurant. You could walk and bike to work, take a train, or be driven in a huge, shiny SUV. You ...

The Thoughts Of An Undecided Leftie On The 2016 US Election 21.5.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Well, it's all over except the crying. After a beguiling nomination process in the Republican and Democratic Party primaries, things are rapidly winding down. Team R has done the nearly unthinkable and nominated the orange-faced, anti-establishment, bigot extraordinaire, infamously thin skinned reality TV star, "Teflon" Don Trump to be their party's standard-bearer. An oft-failed businessman with exactly zero experience governing, and ostensibly zero understanding of some basic principles under which the US government functions. And Team D has done nearly the opposite, and is set to nominate a well-known establishment candidate with a lengthy résumé governing, Hillary "The Inevitable" Clinton. Or "Crooked" Hillary and "Dangerous" Donald, if you ask them what to call each other. Embed from Getty Images With a choice between the two least liked candidates in history , people on the Left and Right are feeling reluctant to vote for either. The #NeverTrump crew is frantically searching for an out by drafting ...
