A Poetic Exploration Of The Hunting Tradition In America's North 21.11.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Photographer Clare Benson comes from a long line of hunters. Growing up in northern Michigan, she remembers her father, now 82 years old, winning archery championships and reminiscing about his time as a hunting guide in the Alaskan wilderness. For her, the tradition of hunting -- and the rugged northern landscape that serves as its backdrop -- represents themes of memory and mortality, ones she's managed to weave in and out of her work for some time. Her series "The Shepard's Daughter" addresses her connection to hunting most directly. The images show Benson, her sister and her father trekking through snow-covered scenes, respectfully carrying the spoils of hunting trips past. She pointedly juxtaposes portraits of her family members lounging in contemplation with photographs of the animals they hunt, skin, cook and eat. Set in a vast world unfamiliar to most urban dwellers, Benson paints a picture of a hunting tradition we don't often encounter. The Shepherd's Daughter, 2012 The project, she explained ...

Tanzania sees surge in girls reporting rape and kidnapping 21.11.2014 Yahoo: Top Stories
By Kizito Makoye DAR ES SALAAM (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - A surge in reports of rape, torture and kidnapping of girls in Tanzania shows that the introduction of specialist units in police stations is giving survivors confidence to report these crimes, a senior official has said.     However, critics said police need to do more to secure prosecutions in the country where nearly one in three girls experiences sexual abuse before the age of 18, according to the United Nations children's fund. ...

12 More Mind-Blowing Documentaries You Can Stream On Netflix 21.11.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
In light of World Television Day and the upcoming holiday weekend, it seemed like a good time to review another set of Netflix documentaries. If you've already powered through the first three collections , here are 12 more: "How to Survive a Plague" "How to Survive a Plague" captures the turmoil witnessed in Larry Kramer's semi-autobiographical "The Normal Heart" with depictions of actual events at the onset of HIV/AIDS activism. Telling the story of organizations AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) and Treatment Action Group (TAG), the film depicts the challenges to change perceptions that AIDS is a death sentence. Director David France tackles an infuriating obstacle to highlight the compelling power of grass-roots movements. "The Waiting Room" An intimate look at the health-care crisis, "The Waiting Room" functions as a much-needed indictment of the system, but also manages to cast an uplifting and even empowering look at the employees who care for the sick in the bleakest of circumstances. ...

Community holds vigil after 2 children slain, mom, son wounded in New Jersey home shooting 21.11.2014 Star Tribune: Nation
Are We Failing Our Kids? 21.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Our children's health and welfare is our responsibility. As countries across the globe are celebrating Universal Children's Day and recommitting to improve the welfare of kids everywhere, I can't help but wonder if we're doing enough to protect our kids here at home. Today's children have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. More than one-third of kids and teens in America are overweight or obese and even fewer are meeting the recommended national physical activity guidelines. Half of our kids have zero access to safe places to play and get active like parks, community centers, bike paths and sidewalks. Kids of color are more likely to live in park -- poor communities, and not surprisingly, have higher rates of obesity. As if the lack of safe places to play wasn't a significant enough hurdle in and of itself, many of our kids have been hit with a double whammy: air pollution. According to the American Lung Association , nearly 50 percent of all Americans live in communities where pollution makes ...

Racial Disparity In Ferguson Arrests Is Big, But Not As Big As Other Places 20.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
After Michael Brown was shot and killed by Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson, stories emerged about an African-American community in the city that felt unfairly targeted. It emerged that court fees and fines comprised ten percent of the city's entire budget, and that a disproportionate number of those paying fines were African-American. But as bad as the racial disparity in arrests were (a report by the ArchCity Defenders found “86% of vehicle stops involved black motorists although blacks make up just 67% of population. By comparison, whites comprise 29% of the population of Ferguson but just 12.7% of vehicle stops") those numbers aren't even close to as bad as it gets. On Wednesday, USA Today reported: At least 1,581 other police departments across the USA arrest black people at rates even more skewed than in Ferguson, a USA TODAY analysis of arrest records shows. That includes departments in cities as large and diverse as Chicago and San Francisco and in the suburbs that encircle St. Louis, New ...

Reflections on Ol' Dirty Bastard Ten Years Later: ODB as a Microcosm of American Inequality 20.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Ten years from last Thursday, the American rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard (ODB), died of a drug overdose. This past Saturday would have been his 46th birthday. The Brooklyn-born rapper was a man of many nicknames (Osirus, Dirt Dog, Dirt McGirt, Big Baby Jesus, Ason, Ason Unique) but was known primarily as Ol' Dirty Bastard, because his style was "old school," his lifestyle was "always dirty," and "there was no father to his style." ODB's posthumous legacy pales in comparison to other MCs who died prematurely (e.g. Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac). He did not have the lyrical prowess of his contemporaries. Although he was critical to the success of the Wu-Tang Clan, the innovative hip-hop collective that helped augment an already existing black interest in Asian culture, one could look within this group and come to a similar conclusion about his inferior lyrical position. His individual offerings did not have the genre-impacting influence of Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Lynx, the commercial appeal of Method Man's ...
