Couple Say They're Bugged Out By Live Scorpion In Supermarket Spinach Bag
Huffington Post - 10 months
Greens can be bad for you. Days after a dead bat found in a salad prompted a recall, a Maryland couple said they discovered a live scorpion in a bag of spinach they purchased at a grocery store, NBC Washington reported Monday. “I saw something inside the bag crawling,” Sri Sindhusha Boddapati of Chevy Chase told the station. “I thought it was a cricket in the beginning,” she said, until she trapped the insect and placed it in a bottle. Her husband, Shanmukha Pranay Rajeev Jerripothula, took the bottle to the Giant Food store and said he warned the outlet it shouldn’t sell the Giant-branded spinach package “because it might contain a scorpion,” the outlet noted. The husband told ABC affiliate WJLA that the store wouldn’t recall the product. “Customer satisfaction is our highest priority,” Giant Food of Landover told The Huffington Post in an emailed statement. “We regret any inconvenience to our customer. We take the quality of our products very seriously a...

Mike Pence's New Neighborhood Gets Plastered With 'Trust Women' Signs
Huffington Post - about 1 year
DC-area NARAL members have a simple message for vice president-elect @Mike_Pence: This neighborhood trusts women. pic.twitter.com/pDne9YqrDY — NARAL (@NARAL) December 22, 2016 Vice President-elect Mike Pence recently rented a home in DC’s Chevy Chase neighborhood. Soon after he moved in, residents of the area began hanging rainbow flags in his neighborhood in solidarity with the LGBGTQ community. (Pence has a notable history of supporting legislation that results in LGBTQ discrimination.)  Now the neighborhood has embraced another symbol of quiet resistance by putting up “This neighborhood trusts women” signs, supplied by reproductive rights organization, NARAL Pro-Choice America. The signs target Pence’s decidedly anti-abortion, anti-woman record. During his time in elected office, Pence has led the charge to defund Planned Parenthood, voted against both the Paycheck Fairness Act and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, co-sponsored a federal anti-abortion bill ...

Fake News and the Winds of Hate Roil the U.S.
Huffington Post - about 1 year
There is an ill wind blowing across the nation. Sometimes it is a foul gale, other times just a smelly zephyr. But it is as evil as it is nauseating, as noisome as it is cruel. It blights good fellowship, throttles reasonable discourse, and brings threatening clouds for the future. Lies, insinuations, fabrications and distortions are not new to politics, but now they have an awesome delivery system: fake news on the Internet. Fake news likely inspired a man to storm into the public library in Barrington, RI, on Nov. 10, and verbally attack a young patron. Wearing a Trump hat and T-shirt emblazoned with "Racist Cracker 88," he approached her, chanting, "Obama is out! We control this place now!" The librarians called the police, and the man was escorted out." To this buffoon, literacy was akin to elitism, liberalism and moral decay. A fringe of the already fringy alt-right believes that the election victory of Donald Trump established a new order of self-righteous bigotry, as ...

Huffington Post - about 1 year
James M. Perry was a WWII Marine veteran who began his career at Leatherneck Magazine (Marine Corps), and then worked for thirty-five years covering politics for the National Observer and The Wall Street Journal.

Kennedy's entourage when the President was assassinated in Dallas, TX.

A 'Safe Space' For White People, Otherwise Known As 'The Two-State Solution,' or 'Disunion As Solution'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
It's time, America. It's either a two-state divorce, or "Heil, Trump" will be coming to your neighborhood as it has already come to mine. We are in a civil war. Not very hot -- yet -- but in which tension is building daily. Neo-Nazis party in my neighborhood of Chevy Chase, unnoticed by the Leader, while he attacks the cast of Hamilton instead. Clinton keeps racking up votes, now with a 2,000,000+ vote lead, while no one is yet auditing the states that swung the Electoral College (itself a vestige of slavery). Liberals are turning in on themselves, while conservatives stand stunned, buried at the foot of the wreckage of the Republican party while the kakistocracy takes shape. All this because a few hundred thousand Rust Belt citizens, repeatedly fed misinformation and disinformation in our era of Big Data, decided to first destroy the Republican Party, which had betrayed then for forty years (fool me once...), and then take down the entire country in a fit of pique for an encore...

An American Anabasis -- Reflections On Our Election
Huffington Post - over 1 year
It has been an excruciating week for many of us Hillary supporters. My friends are struggling to make sense of last week's election. My teenagers wonder how a man with such open hostility and disregard for women, immigrants, and the disabled has been elected president. And I, a first time voter, am stunned and left pondering the consequences of this new reality both domestically and internationally. The widespread alienation and rejection felt across the country is palpable and makes me question my place in the United States. It reminds me of my teenage years in post-revolutionary Iran, a period of high anxiety and disconnectedness for families like mine that felt no allegiance to the new ruling party, its ideology or its principles. That uneasy knot in your stomach and the vulnerability it creates, as well as the sense of estrangement from government -- and in this case the people who elected it into office -- is a taxing load to bear. The only calming proposition I can offer is...

The strange, sad tale of a president who was never elected
Yahoo News - over 1 year
Editor's note: This is the 38th entry in the writer's project to read one book about each of the U.S. Presidents in the year prior to Election Day 2016. Follow Marcus' progress at the @44in52 Twitter account and the 44 in 52 Spreadsheet . Man, poor Gerald Ford. That's all I could think after completing Douglas Brinkley's book on Ford for the American Presidents Series — one of the few biographies available on a man generally seen as a caretaker president.  SEE ALSO: The fevered dreams of a paranoid president Ford was in an unenviable position. He ascended to office in the wake of the biggest scandal in the history of the presidency, and had to figure out whether to pardon his predecessor's criminal acts. Meanwhile America was reeling from the loss of a war for the first time (in Vietnam), not to mention a slumping economy and rising inflation. This man was basically handed a tire fire and told to put it out. And, yet, most of what I know of him  — as is the case with most of my genera...

Why Are People So Excited About SNL's Toothless Trump?
Huffington Post - over 1 year
When it comes to “Saturday Night Live” ― NBC’s flagship sketch comedy and variety show, which began airing in October of 1975 ― it seems as though audiences speak in hyperbole or not at all. If “SNL” enters the conversation on a Sunday morning, it will either be to assure readers and internet perusers that the show has unveiled some sort of devastating piece of political satire, or that once again the program is a 90-minute tire fire that its parent network should have extinguished right after Chevy Chase signed an eight picture contract with cocaine. There’s rarely an in between. Modern-day “SNL” is either an essential and vital part of the comic landscape or a disappointing shadow waiting to be euthanized. Luckily for Lorne Michaels and company, the tenor of discussion in the past few weeks has tended more towards the former than the latter. With the debut of Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impersonation (replacing Darrell Hammond), NBC’s old faithful has found its way back into Fa...

5 Shower Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Skin
Huffington Post - about 2 years
By Lindsey Murray You probably don't put too much thought into your daily shower--it's just something you do every day to get clean and, depending on your routine, wake up or wind down. But certain habits may actually be leaving you with dry, itchy skin, or even prone to a raging infection. Nix these sudsy saboteurs before you lather up next. Your water is too hot Dry, itchy skin? Scalding showers might be to blame. "If there is tons and tons of steam coming out, then that's a sign that your shower is too hot," says Melissa Piliang, MD, dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. In addition to drying out your skin, Dr. Piliang warns that hot showers can cause eczema to flare up. You don't have to give up steamy showers entirely. To get the same soothing effect, Dr. Piliang recommends letting the steam build up before you step under the water. "First turn on your shower as hot as you want it," she explains. "Let it get nice and steamy and warm in there, and after it's all heat...
