The Mystery Of John. K And His Trove Of Erotic Polaroids
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Warning: This post contains lots of nudity and may be unsuitable for work.  In one of photographer John Kayser's untitled Polaroids, Kayser himself lies horizontally on the ground, his button-up shirt adorned with little blue cars. A pair of woman's legs loom over his upper half -- hairless, glowing, tucked into black stiletto pumps, one of which is pressing directly into his cheek.  It's the grown-up version of the middle school perv, lying down between the bleachers in the hopes of catching a glimpse up an unsuspecting cheerleader's skirt. There's a touch of '70s performance artist Vito Acconci -- famous for masturbating beneath the floorboards of a gallery, his panting breath wafting upwards -- mixed in, too. Between 1960 and 1980, the mysterious man often referred to as John K. photographed hundreds of women --  passionately, dramatically, sometimes creepily. He photographed them posing nude, legs splayed open, amidst a cornucopia of harvest vegetables. He photographed t ...

Walmart Critics See Opportunity In Alleged Mexico Bribery
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
A scandal surrounding Walmart over alleged bribery in Mexico is turning into fresh meat for its opponents in the United States. Labor unions and activist organizations fighting the big box retailer's push into New York City and Los Angeles are drawing parallels between the company's domestic expansion strategies and its alleged illegal tactics in Mexico. In New York City on Tuesday afternoon, some 50 members of anti-Walmart groups that have long fought the retailer's move into the region gathered on the steps of City Hall to denounce the company. Labor groups like the Retail Action Project, Alliance for a Greater New York and United Food and Commercial Workers are demanding that the company halt its plans to expand into New York City until the City Council investigates its local business dealings. "We want to be assured what happened in Mexico doesn't happen here," declared Inez Barron, a New York Assembly member whose district includes the area of East New York where Wa ...

David Vognar: To Drive or Not to Drive
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
After all the pre-graduate school anxiety over test scores, acceptance and getting scholarship money waned, you'd think a 20-something would be able to relax a little. But a habit of deliberating is a nag and never does quite let you get off easy. In contemplating whether to live at home with the family and commute to graduate school this coming fall or to rent an apartment near campus, I began considering issues aside from convenience and cost. I also thought about how my living arrangements would ameliorate or worsen the most potent threat to our civilization: climate change. As I came to learn, none of the options was as green as I thought it would be. I try to do my part to fight our drift toward a warmer climate and the volatile weather, social strain and loss of life this will bring. I know temperatures have already risen 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit and scientists predict there is a chance they could rise by 11 degrees by the end of the century. So I compost, recycle like ...

In the late '80s or early '90s, Christopher Williams was the boyfriend of Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry. After Halle Berry told interviewers that an abusive ex-boyfriend struck her so hard that she lost most of the hearing in her right ear, many people assumed that Williams was the unnamed ex-boyfriend. Williams defended himself to Eurweb, the entertainment news website, denying that he ever harmed Berry, and suggesting that Berry has been referring to actor Wesley Snipes. He said, "The stuff they wrote about me and Halle was totally false. It's been said I busted her eardrum, and I'm tired of it. I never said it before but I'm so tired of people thinking I'm the guy who did it. Wesley busted her eardrum, not me." Halle Berry is also on record denying that Williams ever hit her.
