Bridging The Gap
The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider
Shortly before his death in 1983, eccentric futurist Buckminster Fuller introduced what he called the "knowledge-doubling curve" to describe the rapid acceleration of human knowledge. Fuller estimated that before 1900, humanity's cognitive database doubled every century; after World War II, the doubling of knowledge occurred after every 25 years. But with technological advances, recent studies sug...

The Season to Be Stressful The Season to Be Stressful
MONTREAL — Red Bull? Check. Late-night delivery on speed dial? Check. Pringles? Check. You would think that after three semesters of college, I’d have learned my lesson. No more skipping classes to catch up on missed assignments before finals, pulling all-nighters before an exam, or relying on junk food for sustenance as I burn the midnight oil. “This won’t happen again,” I remember telling ...

Real people rely on Obamacare Real people rely on Obamacare
In policy and political debates, we often forget the human impact of weighty choices. Abstract numbers, ideological arguments, “he said, she said” talking points and outright falsehoods — these are the currency of our public discourse. But elections and policies have real consequences in the everyday lives of ordinary families. As Congress considers repeal of the Affordable Care Act, we at the ...

Keep the overtime rule: Our view Keep the overtime rule: Our view
Donald Trump won the presidency with a populist message and the support of working class voters. But, aside from Trump's staunch opposition to trade deals, little of his agenda is actually geared toward improving the lot of the people who embraced him. His cabinet selections so far have been heavy on billionaires and Wall Street financiers. His tax cuts would disproportionately help the wealthy...

Trump's female voters are people not props: Column Trump's female voters are people not props: Column
As America recovers from last week’s shock election results that ended with a President-elect Donald Trump, the finger pointing is in full swing. If there’s someone poised to pick up a large share of the blame, it’s the white women who voted 53% for Donald Trump. Donald Trump got a larger share of Latino and black voters than Mitt Romney or John McCain. Yet the story isn’t Hillary Clinton not b...

Trump's monumental challenge on race: Ellis Cose Trump's monumental challenge on race: Ellis Cose
Election night was the night of the white working-class male. But for many of us who are not white working-class males, it was truly frightening. Among the email messages I got as the returns came in were two from friends comparing the moment with 9/11. One, a gay mother of an infant, wrote, “This is not the country I want to raise a child in.” Another correspondent provided an account of a hate l...

Have no fear, trust God, elections are almost over: #tellusatoday Have no fear, trust God, elections are almost over: #tellusatoday
Allowing God inside creates inner peace with constructive results. Letter to the editor: Donald Trump supporters are convinced that America hasn’t been first, that it has been taken advantage of by other countries as a result of weakness, stupidity and corruption. They fear that a Hillary Clinton win will unleash countless horrendous invaders, ultimately sparking World War III. Clinton su...

Clinton goes after Arizona and a mandate: Laurie Roberts Clinton goes after Arizona and a mandate: Laurie Roberts
At long last, I finally understand the Republican Party’s strategy in Arizona. Why Republican leaders for years have not only not courted Latino voters but have gone out of their way to turn off a generation or more of the state’s fastest growing segment of the electorate. Why ex-Senate President Russell Pearce, the architect of Senate Bill 1070, was a rock star within the party and why Mari...

Don’t blame the hackers, blame the perpetrators: Your Say Don’t blame the hackers, blame the perpetrators: Your Say
The hacked emails present a grim picture of the person who claims to be our savior. Letter to the editor: Let me start by saying both candidates are horrid and flawed. I cannot believe, as Americans, this is the best we can do to represent both parties in an election. Be that as it may, I agree with your comment saying that “if you fear something will become public, don’t do it” in the edito...

Donald Trump's cowardly debate performance: Kirsten Powers Donald Trump's cowardly debate performance: Kirsten Powers
Just a few weeks ago, Trump’s son Eric was praising his father for pulling his punches regarding Bill Clinton’s personal life. "I think that took a lot of courage” to not confront Hillary Clinton about allegations against her husband, Eric Trump said. “In so many regards [he took] the high ground and kept the high road.” Not so tonight. At the second presidential debate — a town hall forum mode...
