Sandra Fluke, Nicolle Wallace, Chelsea Clinton And More Talk Women In Politics

Huffington Post Politics by brenna.cammeron@huffingtonpost.com

 

For Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student who unwittingly stepped into the national spotlight when she argued the case for contraception coverage in front of Congress and was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh for her effort, the talk show host's slur wasn't only an insult. It was also an opportunity.

The Institute for Justice

Institute for Justice, The

The Institute for Justice is America's premier libertarian public interest law firm. IJ pursues cutting-edge litigation on behalf of individuals whose most basic rights are denied by the State-rights like economic liberty, private property rights, free speech, and equal protection of our laws. IJ sues the government when it stands in the way of people trying to earn an honest living, when it takes away individuals' property, when bureaucrats (not parents) control the education of children, when government stifles speech, and when public institutions classify individuals based on race.

The cabbie who is driving for liberty

From The Washington  By George F. Will Opinion Writer

 

Ali Bokhari, now 39, emigrated from Pakistan in 2000 and eventually settled here as a taxi driver. He soon experienced a quintessentially American itch, a nagging sense that “I cannot grow.” But he had an idea: “I can build a better business model for something Nashville has been missing.” He built it and now knows that no good deed goes unpunished by today’s political model — collusion between entrenched businesses and compliant government.

Equal Justice Initiative: Plea Bargaining Process

(From Equal Justice Initiative)

 

U.S. SUPREME COURT FINDS THAT RIGHT TO COUNSEL APPLIES TO THE PLEA-BARGAINING PROCESS

On March 21, 2012, the United States Supreme Court held in two cases, Missouri v. Frye and Lafler v. Cooper, that trial lawyers may be found ineffective in violation of the Sixth Amendment where the lawyer's performance in the plea-bargaining process causes the defendant to forgo a plea agreement that would have resulted in a lesser sentence.

Patience Abbe, best-selling child author, dies at 87

The Washington Post

Patience Abbe was only 11 when the memoir she wrote with her two brothers, “Around the World in Eleven Years,” climbed onto the bestseller lists for grown-ups in 1936.

 

As the siblings recounted their nomadic childhood in Europe and subsequent move to America, their exuberance and unaffected observations charmed readers. Patience observed that a woman with children could always get a seat on a Paris bus “no matter how first the others were.”

World Water Day spotlights growing need, dwindling sources

UN WIRE

On World Water Day, the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization warned that 70% more water would be needed to produce enough food for the planet's growing population by 2050, while the world body's World Water Development Report projected that the need could be even greater if crop yields and production aren't drastically improved. Two-thirds of all people could be living under water-stressed conditions in about a decade, according to the FAO. FOR MORE PRESS AlertNet (3/21)

Nonviolence & Durable World Peace?

Is Nonviolence the Solution in Creating a Durable World Peace?

 

War spans the human memory across time where disputes ranging from religion, ideology, wealth, politics, power and territory are resolved through killing other human beings. The 20th century is viewed as the most destructive on record, 250 wars and 109 million humans have been killed and not a day passes without a war reported in the media. Whilst wars are horrific as a means to an ends, the advent of the atomic bomb moved the world to the precipice of mutually assured destruction. The world now has a choice nuclear annihilation or a golden age of peace. Mahatma Gandhi on hearing the news about Hiroshima in 1945, did not move a muscle, he was clear, ‘unless now the world adopts nonviolence it will spell certain suicide for mankind’. This paper will explore nonviolence from its origins through its many transformations of mysticism, pacifism, gandhian satyagraha and pragmatic nonviolence. The lamp of nonviolence will illuminate the question of how effective is nonviolence in creating a lasting world peace and how the future could manifest out of a commitment to nonviolence.

Einstein Proved Right in Retest of Neutrinos’ Speed

The New York Times

 

GENEVA (AP) — Einstein may have been right after all.

 

European researchers said Friday they had measured again the speed of a subatomic particle that a September experiment suggested traveled faster than the speed of light, violating Einstein’s special theory of relativity, which underlies much of modern physics.

 

The research team, led by the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Carlo Rubbia, found that the particles, neutrinos, do not travel faster than light.

Physics shocker! Neutrinos clocked faster than light

As part of the OPERA experiment, physicists tracked how long it takes for neutrons generated at CERN to reach a detector 730km away in Italy. (Credit: National Institute of Nuclear Physics (ITFN) in Italy)

Tiny subatomic particles are challenging Einstein's decades-old conclusion that nothing can travel faster than light. Next up: intense scrutiny of the finding.


European physicists have measured tiny particles called neutrinos moving just faster than the speed of light--only a smidgen faster, but enough to raise a serious possibility that Einstein's physics need a major overhaul.
