Take a Wild Guess Which Political Party is Imperiling Babies (Guest Voice) 26.5.2016 The Moderate Voice

Take a Wild Guess Which Political Party is Imperiling Babies By Dick Polman We all know by now that Republicans are well practiced at the art of magical thinking — massive tax cuts balance the budget, human-induced climate change isn’t real, Donald Trump is a normal candidate — but the delusion that tops them all [...]

In Switzerland, Muslim schoolchildren who refuse to shake their teacher's hand may be fined $5,000 26.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
In Switzerland, the humble handshake between a teacher and children at the beginning and end of the day — a tradition throughout much of the country — has become an unlikely battleground in a public debate about religious freedom and sexual equality. Now, one Swiss canton has added a financial element to the controversy, warning families of children who refuse to shake hands with their teachers that they would face a fine of up to $5,000. In April, two students at a school in the town of Therwi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Morning Digest: Republicans try to lock Democrats out of the general in blue Santa Barbara seat 25.5.2016 Daily Kos
Leading Off: ● CA-24: Not long ago, both the DCCC and House Majority PAC began airing ads in support of Santa Barbara County Supervisor Salud Carbajal, even though a fellow Democrat, Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, is also in the race. But Team Blue doesn't seem to be worried that Schneider will beat Carbajal in California's 24th Congressional District. Instead, they appear to be concerned that two Republicans, Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian and businessman Justin Fareed, will grab first and second place in the June 7 top-two primary, which would send them both to the general election and give Republicans an automatic pickup in this 54-43 Obama seat. And it looks like the NRCC thinks the same thing is possible, since it's now spending $220,000 on a spot that seems designed to shift voters from Carbajal to Schneider in order to keep both Democrats from advancing past the primary. The NRCC's ad , which comes to us via the National Journal , nominally hits both Carbajal and Schneider. The narrator ...

From coast to coast, from the Ivy League to state universities to small liberal arts colleges, a wave of student activism has focused on stopping climate change, promoting a living wage, fighting mass incarceration practices, supporting immigrant rights, and of course campaigning for Bernie Sanders.

Student Protest, the Black Lives Matter Movement and the Rise of the Corporate University 23.5.2016 Truthout.com
Supporters of the student protest group Concerned Student 1950 celebrate and chant following the announcement of the resignation of University of Missouri President Timothy Wolfe, on campus in Columbia, Missouri, November 9, 2015. Wolfe announced that he was stepping down after a wave of student outcry, including an ultimatum from dozens of Black football players that they would not play if he did not resign.

Dog patrol: Stepped up leash law enforcement sparks resistance, debate in Dog Town USA 22.5.2016 Steamboat Pilot
It isn't easy being an animal control officer in Steamboat Springs. Sometimes, a stray sheep becomes transfixed by its own reflection in a window of a home on Ski Trail Lane and needs to be wrangled off a patio deck and taken back to the ranch. Other times, a mother duck and her ducklings underestimate Steamboat Springs’ rush hour and pick a perilous time to start crossing a downtown street. And then there’s Mamba, the notorious boxer-husky mix that has escaped from the city’s animal shelter not once, but twice. In a city that’s home to an estimated 5,500 dogs, it is the canines that generate the most calls for the officers. The two women who patrol the streets, fetch stray dogs and uphold the leash laws in local parks have recently been charged with stepping up their canine efforts. It's an excuse officer Krista Amatuzio hears from leash law violators at least once every three weeks. This is Dog Town USA. The title was bestowed upon the city by Dog Fancy Magazine in 2013. Since then, it has become a ...

Racing for a good cause 21.5.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The Spirit Challenge Steamboat Springs Running Series race Saturday proved a sentimental event for many in attendance. The race was a fundraiser for the Yampa Valley Autism Program, and funds were donated in the name of Jenna Gruben Morrill, an avid Steamboat runner who died in a car crash in 2010. "We're so appreciative," said LuEtta Loeber, who has been active in the Austism Program through the years. "Every fundraiser is important. We have so many kids we're helping." The Autism Program helps 60 local families who have children with autism. Their services include therapy, education and a vocational work program. The Spirit Challenge included 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer races that began at Steamboat Springs Middle School, as well as a fun run for the kids. About 120 people people participated in the second race of the summer series. Beaver Creek resident Brad Zoller finished first for the men in the 5-kilometer race with a time of 18:45. He said he and his wife look for any excuse to come to ...
Washington Post Op-ed: The real reason that so many women have to spend so much time getting ready 20.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Before 8 a.m., I have often already applied seven products to my face — face wash, tinted moisturizer, eyeliner, mascara and more. And I don’t think I’m terribly fussy, or alone. In an effort to appear polished and professional, many American women — not all, of course, but many — spend a huge amount of time and money on makeup and skincare products. Hugely popular cosmetics companies such as Sephora and Bluemercury feature a slew of products that I don’t even understand — from Amazonian clay-in...
