If Trump Really Wants To 'Do Something' About Autism, Here Are 3 Suggestions
Huffington Post - 14 days
It’s clear that President Donald Trump is interested in the subject of autism spectrum disorder, repeatedly expressing an interest in doing “something” about the condition. To autism advocates, his enthusiasm is exciting; the issue could always use more funding for research and services to improve quality of life and social integration.  Unfortunately, anti-vaccine activists like Robert F. Kennedy Jr. have seized upon this interest as an opportunity to insert themselves into a conversation about vaccine safety at the highest policy levels. Last month, Kennedy claimed Trump had selected him to lead a panel on “vaccine safety” (the administration later denied this and said they were in fact exploring a commission on autism). And on Wednesday, Kennedy and actor Robert De Niro, who has his own history of vaccine skepticism, appeared at a press conference in Washington, D.C., to again push the notion that a panel on vaccine safety would eventually move forward under Trump’s administ ...

US Middle East Policy: Realpolitik or Wrongpolitik?
Huffington Post - 4 months
Today, the Middle East is in its worst shape since WWII--civil wars in Syria and Yemen; insurgency in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya; unprecedented oppression in Bahrain and Egypt; heightened instability in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey; little political freedom in Saudi Arabia and the rest of the GCC, and not much better in Iran; and with the fallout of about 10 million refugees from Syria and Iraq alone and an additional 15 million or so people displaced from their homes, and yes, a terrorist organization like nothing the world has seen, namely ISIS hell bent on creating havoc in the region and the world over. How and why did all this come about? Is it just a moment in time or is it a landscape that could get even worse? A complete answer to these two questions would take much time and thousands of pages. Luckily, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has penned an article in Politico that does an outstanding job. What we wish to do here is to focus on the underlying reason for the current state of af ...

If Dr. King Were Alive Today
Huffington Post - 4 months
This Blog is co-authored by Jonathan D. Greenberg, Scholar in Residence, Daniel Martin Gould Center for Conflict Resolution, Stanford Law School. On April 4, 1967, a year to the day before his assassination, Martin Luther King, Jr. gave a courageous address ("Beyond Vietnam:  A Time to Break Silence") to an overflow congregation at New York City's Riverside Church.  Part homily, part political advocacy, King spoke of the imperatives of conscience at a moment of national crisis.  "We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now," he said.  "In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late.... The choice is ours, and though we might prefer it otherwise, we must choose in this crucial moment of human history." On January 15, 2017, we as a nation will celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 88th birthday, and we will reflect upon his life and legacy.   Five days later our nation will inaugurate the 45th President of the United States. If Mart ...

Kyra Kennedy, Daughter Of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Debuts At Debutantes Ball (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
If the name "Kennedy" harkens back to a bygone era of glamour, then the words "debutantes ball" will probably do the same. And yet both are still going strong. Kyra Kennedy, daughter of Robert Kennedy Jr. and great-niece to the late President John F. Kennedy, made her formal debut at the Bal Des Débutantes 2013 in Paris this weekend. The ball, held at the Hôtel de Crillon, saw over 20 "debs" introduced to society in the most glamorous couture while their parents watched on. For 18-year-old Kyra, that meant donning a black and icy blue Christian Dior gown, which she was fitted for at Dior in Paris last Wednesday. Her father and his girlfriend, Cheryl Hines, attended in their own formalwear. If the whole charade sounds like old-school Americana, note that it was a rather international affair: Lady Amelia Windsor, the granddaughter of one of Queen Elizabeth II's cousins Francesca Packer Barham, also made her debut, as did Rebecca Eu, daughter of Singapore business scion Richard Eu. ...

On the 10th Anniversary of Arnold Schwarzenegger Settling In as Governor
Huffington Post - over 3 years
It's been just over ten years since Arnold Schwarzenegger's surprise governorship of California began. Winner by a landslide in the dramatic 2003 California recall election, Schwarzenegger was inaugurated on November 17, 2003 after a less than six-week transition period. The inaugural festivities, covered around the world in real and near real time, were spectacular in scope. And Schwarzenegger laid out an agenda of post-partisan, frequently visionary elements which he did much in office to achieve. But not before sowing some disastrous seeds not long after his inauguration, even as he achieved near record levels of popular approval during his first year in office. By the end of his first week in office, or, put another way, just about 10 years ago now, three things that turned out to be important in retrospect had come into clear focus. * First, the big car tax cut, which amounted to $4 to $6 billion a year over the years. It was Schwarzenegger's first official act as governor, ...
