Black-Owned Businesses Are Quietly Powering Detroit's Resurgence, But No One's Talking About It
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Detroit will mark the first anniversary of its bankruptcy filing this Friday, and across the country, people are watching the city to see how it has survived the upheaval. Despite pending cuts for pensioners, as well as widespread poverty, sobering health and violence statistics and a declining population, Detroiters have expressed cautious optimism about recent changes, which include greater investments in development, promises to improve city services and an ambitious plan to eliminate urban blight. The largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history has also stirred up interest in success stories. Though no one person will fix Detroit, some people have received well-deserved attention for their work to improve the city. A New York Times article last month highlighted hot spots in the Corktown neighborhood, and a story in the same paper earlier this year heralded small businesses. But something's missing from those pieces, and from many other articles that examine the city's ...

Anneli Rufus: It's Always Halloween in Virginia City
Huffington Post - over 3 years
So we're all sitting in near-total darkness in this huge upstairs room in an authentic 19th-century Wild West clubhouse. On the floor in the middle of our circle, way beyond anyone's reach, rests a flashlight, switched off. "Show yourself," coaxes the ghost-hunter who brought us here. She is addressing whichever of this building's many alleged spirits might be listening. "Switch on that flashlight." Nothing. Silence. Darkness. "Pleeease," the ghost-hunter exhorts in a caramel-syrup voice. "I know it's really hard for you, but if you could switch on that flashlight, we'd all be really, really impressed." A heartbeat. Then click. The flashlight blinks on. Grown men scream. The trouble with believing in ghosts is not the chance that you might see one eating Cheese Nips on the sofa. The trouble with believing in ghosts is finding anyone to tell about it who won't laugh or ask how much Jägermeister you chugged first. You won't have that trouble in Virginia C ...

Tomas Rawlings: 'It's No Game' - The Reaction to Endgame:Syria
Huffington Post - about 4 years
As a gamer I enjoy playing games set in fictional universes; recently I've played the role of wind pollinating flowers, I've played a pilgrim on a mysterious journey and I've played a soldier in a high-tech future war. However all of these are make-believe. As a games designer I wanted to explore issues in the real world and it is natural for me to turn to the medium of games to do that. Games have something to offer in engaging people in ways that linear forms of media don't. So began the project GameTheNews.net - we are still in beta but so far we've covered news like Space X's new rocket or the world's first solar powered nation. Then we decided to explore the ongoing conflict in Syria and what we did has become a global talking-point. Broadly Positive Making a game exploring an ongoing war was always going to get a reaction, though this was not our motivation, it was a topic I'd been following regularly. What has surprised me about the response is that the majority ...

Dad Protests Principal For Teaching Teen About Porn
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Steven Werner is protesting a Michigan principal's decision to educate his daughter on porn, calling it an act of bullying and demanding a written apology. The 10th grade girl went to school on halloween wearing a pink and black female pirate costume the other week, but was called to the Utica High School principal's office for an outfit that resembled a porn star, Werner tells WJBK. The costume features a short black dress and knee-high black stockings with pink bows. Werner says that Principal Janet Jones proceeded to tell the teen that she looked like a porn star in the outfit. When the girl asked what a porn star was, "she elaborated to [the girl] what a porn star was and what they do for a living," Werner said. "She did say that all men watch porn and it's a fact of life and I should get real," he told WJBK. "My daughter was pretty shocked that her principal would explain to her what a porn star is and what a porn star does and about the pornography industry, and ...

Z6 Mag - almost 5 years
It’s not the first time and a good guess would say it’s not the last time but Paulina Gretzky’s photos are making the rounds on the Internet. Paulina has already gotten in trouble before from her dad, Wayne Gretzky. On November 30th, 2011 a story in People Magazine had revealed it had gotten so bad that Paulina had tweeted, “Having a nice sit down dinner with my dad about social media..haha.” It wasn’t long after that message that Paulina had to take a break from Twitter and let everyone know about it. Wayne Gretzky wasn’t thrilled with the racy photos of Paulina going public everywhere. Paulina Gretzky lingere photos and bikini shots have become popular fodder on male heavy demographic websites. A website called BroBible has even created a tribute to her photos to her, “Once-Great Twitter Account” as they put it. MTV is sharing some of the pmgypsy/Instagram pics on their site as well.
