David Harris: Give Ukraine a Chance
The Ukraine crisis continues. At this stage, no one can safely predict where the country will be a month from now, let alone a year down the road. Nonetheless, a few things appear crystal-clear.
Foodbeast: 10 Mind-Blowing Food Trends Already Dominating 2014
This is truly a time to enjoy food.
Savannah Badalich: The Student Government Leader Who Sexually Assaulted Me
Two weeks into my second year at UCLA, I was sexually assaulted by a friend and fellow Bruin during a student government retreat.
Mike Heenan: An Open Letter to Rap Music (For My Daughters)
If you choose to forgo "Happy Birthday" for crooning about your "Magic Stick," you'd better be the guy in the Gandalf getup passing goodies out to the party-goers. You will NOT be "making it rain" around my girls unless you are a sprinkler technician.
Craig Aaron: Wake Up, Internet -- Time to Save Yourself
On May 15, the FCC will propose a new set of rules that are supposed to stop big phone and cable companies from blocking websites or discriminating against apps and services they don't like. Only as written, the rules would do pretty much the opposite.
John Tirman: The Usual Suspects Aim To Spoil Iran Nuclear Deal
The longtime pattern of the U.S.-Iran relationship: spoilers never go away, they just regroup and try to despoil again and again.
Peter Diamandis: Drones Overhead, Seeing Everything, Always: Inside Google and Facebook's Latest Acquisitions
Imagine a fleet of drones, overhead, out of sight, tens of thousands of feet in the sky. Imagine those drones being powered by sunlight -- effectively aerial satellites that are orbiting constantly, never having to touch down for fuel. Now imagine thousands of them with cameras and radio repeaters on board.
Amy L. Freeman: The Moment Lost in a Smile Withheld
I wondered what has happened to her, what people have said (or not said) to or near her, words or glances that have torn at her soul so deeply that she expects nothing but scorn.
Geoffrey R. Stone: The National Review, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and Affirmative Action
Of course, the National Review has every right under the First Amendment to say all of these things, and I would defend to the death, in Voltaire's words, its right to say them. But that does not make them any less offensive -- or ignorant of the law.
Brian Rooney: The Absurdity of Everest
Climbing Mt. Everest is no longer a noble pursuit and the people who do it are not heroes.
Kate C. Prickett: State Firearm Laws Could Reduce Gun-Related Injuries in Children
Regardless of where one comes down on the debates about gun control, everyone seems to agree that keeping firearms out of the hands of unattended children is a good idea.
Michael Roth: Supreme Court Decision Undermines Education and Opportunity
University admissions programs are not the place to promote partisan visions of social justice, but they are the place to produce the most dynamic and profound learning environments.
Bryan Stevenson: Celebrating the Power of Forgiveness
It might seem odd to want to help those who have offended, injured or hurt others, but I'm persuaded that simply condemning and persecuting those who offend, those who fail, is not a healthy way forward.
Winnie M Li: From Westeros to White Ribbon: Examining the Male Reaction to Rape
A rape survivor myself, I wasn't so furious. In fact, I found it telling that Cersei Lannister could still be subjected to rape at the hand(s) of her own brother and former lover. Personally, I think that's a potent statement from the show's creators, reminding us that sexual assault can affect anyone regardless of how high you sit in a fictional society or in the real world.
Lincoln Mitchell: Why Would Paul Ryan Think About Race?
Ryan's comments last month reflect a political climate where Republicans not only do not meaningfully speak to African American citizens, but they tell themselves and their supporters stories about politics and economics that will ensure that they do not have to speak to African American voters in the future.
