Bridging The Gap
Don't hike Social Security benefits Don't hike Social Security benefits
After an unexpectedly difficult primary campaign, and more than a month of waiting since she claimed the Democratic nomination, presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is expected to finally get the backing of Bernie Sanders at a joint appearance Tuesday in New Hampshire. This is, no doubt, a relief to her. But in winning the nomination and Sanders' endorsement, she has shifted a numbe...

Political spin launched first: Opposing view Political spin launched first: Opposing view
On Sept. 11, 2012, four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack. This tragedy was compounded by the obsession of the White House and the State Department, under then-secretary Hillary Clinton, with preserving a political narrative. They placed politics over American lives. It is clear the Obama administration was deeply committed to its Libya strategy. National security was a...

he damn-the-torpedos allure of 'Brexit' he damn-the-torpedos allure of 'Brexit'
VENICE — "Brexit" might well be the end of the world as we know it. That’s certainly the view from this sun-washed Adriatic paradise in the south of Europe and indeed on much of the rest of the continent of the choice facing British voters. On Thursday, they will go to the polls to decide whether to remain in the European Union or exit it, the first binding stay-or-leave vote by a member nation...

Obama's next project should be fatherhood Obama's next project should be fatherhood
“By almost every measure, the group that is facing some of the most severe challenges in the 21st century in this country are boys and young men of color,” President Obama said in 2014 when he launched My Brother’s Keeper, an initiative to help black and Latino boys. The president went on to note that compared with young white men, young minority males are less likely to graduate from high school,...

Hey, Millennials, Hillary Clinton made history Hey, Millennials, Hillary Clinton made history
The day after Hillary Clinton made history, I sat in a doctor's office with other women, but no one talked about her claiming the Democratic presidential nomination. When I went in for my gynecological exam, I wanted to discuss the big news with my female doctor. But I hesitated to initiate the conversation. She just told me to take my clothes off and get up on those stirrups. As the doctor ...

48 44  Hiroshima visit is the right call: Our view 48 44 Hiroshima visit is the right call: Our view
In the 71 years since the nuclear bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, no sitting president has visited the now thriving city. But the site of the first atomic attack in history has not lacked for American presidents. Richard Nixon visited in 1964, in between his two presidential runs. And Jimmy Carter visited in 1984, after his presidency. Yet the absence of an actual White House occupant is just n...

The software that threatens your identity The software that threatens your identity
Consumers are likely to be all too familiar with the following scenario: Performance on a seemingly new computer suddenly begins to slow to a crawl, websites that used to load normally start to be inundated with pop-ups, and weird ads begin to show up on otherwise normal websites. While this is certainly an annoyance, it could be a symptom of something even worse: an increased risk of identity the...

Saudi alliance presents ideological challenges Saudi alliance presents ideological challenges
It is said politics makes for strange bedfellows, and none is stranger than the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. Speculation about Saudi complicity in 9/11 and its financial support for some of the terrorists is rampant. The Saudis export radical Wahhabi Islam and support jihadism. Further, their country is a symbol of dictatorship that is contrary to precious American ideals. Yet, our government calls S...

The Mathematician’s 90th-Birthday Party The Mathematician’s 90th-Birthday Party
I RECENTLY attended a conference in honor of Ivo Babuska, a professor at the University of Texas, with whom I have written several mathematical papers. There were toasts with a crowd-pleasing (if prudently priced) malbec and puns riffing on “singular value decomposition” that elicited much mirth. After all, it was also Ivo’s 90th-birthday party. Ivo remains passionately immersed in research, de...

Bono: Time to Think Bigger About the Refugee Crisis Bono: Time to Think Bigger About the Refugee Crisis
I’VE recently returned from the Middle East and East Africa, where I visited a number of refugee camps — car parks of humanity. I went as an activist and as a European. Because Europeans have come to realize — quite painfully in the past year or two — that the mass exodus from collapsed countries like Syria is not just a Middle Eastern or African problem, it’s a European problem. It’s an American ...
