Let That

Sometimes it's better to pick out a gift for someone yourself and other times it's a good idea to let that picky loved one choose their own. (And if you've waited this long to buy gifts, that might be your easiest course of action.) This is where gif...

If you're looking for an amazing gift for the holidays, then we found a great one for you. Amazon has the mid-2017 Apple MacBook Pro on sale for $1,549.99.

This machine is still a beast for getting work done and staying productive all day. Buying refurbished means it's basically as good as new, and it'll give you a cheaper price point that makes this a much more manageable gift item — especially if buying for your kids.

The NFL wants you to know its players, the men who actually get fans to pay a premium for seats even on the coldest days and watch games at home in record numbers, are getting a raise. It’s part of the collective bargaining agreement that the players’ share of the pie is tied to league revenue and the players’ share of that revenue isn’t even 50 percent, but let’s not let that get in the way of all of us patting them on the back. So keep in mind that while 1,600 players will be splitting more money next year, the owners will be splitting even more money and there’s only 32 of them.

It started when Tumblr flagged one of my retrospective posts (a five year old post about the right of British schoolkids to opt out of fingerprinting) as porn. So I made another post, making fun of the pornbot's shitty judgment. It got flagged. Undaunted, I made another post complaining about the pornbot's shitty judgment about its own shitty judgment. Guess what happened? Naturally, I couldn't let that slide. YOU WON'T EVER GUESS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT! I can keep this up all day, you know! Who says you can't win an argument with a computer?

Amanda Jackson holds a basketball that belonged to her son as she poses for a photo on April 28, 2017, at a basketball court in a park where he used to play while growing up in Olympia, Wash. Jackson's son waited two years to tell her that he had been assaulted at a basketball camp in 2010 by several teammates, as a freshman at Capital High School in Olympia, Wash. “I felt like if I told someone,” he testified, “then I would have been, you know, excluded from the team and not able to play varsity basketball.” He finally spoke up after more boys were jumped at a similar camp, leading the district to investigate the school. It's not that we as parents, as well as schools, leagues and coaches, aren't familiar with the risks of sexual assault in youth sports; most of us would never dream of putting our child in a league that didn't run a criminal background check to weed out offenders.

Taylor Sappington is exactly the kind of candidate his party should want in Ohio. But he couldn’t get union support. Taylor Sappington heard the call like so many other Democrats in the year after Nov. 8, 2016. He had seen Donald Trump coming, homing in on his little town of Nelsonville, Ohio, in the state’s impoverished Appalachian southeast. The town of 5,300 people had voted for Barack Obama twice by large margins.Trump was Nelsonville’s pick in 2016, though it was more by default than acclamation. Trump won there with less than a majority, with 30 percent fewer votes than Obama had gotten four years earlier.Sappington, a 27-year-old Ohio native, took this as evidence that Nelsonville was not beyond redemption, that the town where he had grown up in hard circumstances — the son of a single mother who was for a time on food stamps, living deep in the woods in a manufactured home — wasn’t really Trump country.Not so long ago at all, Ohio was considered the quintessen...

Don’t make me go there.Or, in the far classier, more eloquent words of congressman and civil rights hero John Lewis, “During another period people waited in immovable lines, faced billy clubs and cattle prods, in order to register and vote. Have courage, raw courage, and let nothing stop you from exercising your right to vote in this election. Do your part.

When Game of Thrones airs its final episode in 2019, there will be a gaping void left in the world of pop culture. In the six years since the show first aired, the lords and ladies of Westeros and beyond have become inescapable elements of what it means to watch TV in the 2010s, and if you think HBO was just going to let that go because the show is ending, you’re bad at capitalism.

Right-wing extremists have never been subtle about their goal to eliminate three key programs. Everyone who cares about their Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid needs to vote on November 6. If Republican politicians and the donors who own them retain full control of Congress, they are determined to finally succeed in their longstanding goal of ending all three programs.Right-wing extremists have never been subtle about that goal. As the fight over President George W. Bush’s 2005 proposal to privatize Social Security was heating up, a leaked memorandum from Bush’s director of strategic initiatives, dated January 3, 2005, and marked “not for attribution,” put the fight over the program in context: “this will be one of the most important conservative undertakings of modern times.” If that weren’t clear enough, the memorandum concluded with a startling and refreshingly frank assessment: “For the first time in six decades, the Social Security battle is one we can wi...

In the spring of 1995, I was sitting in the player dining area at Atlanta Country Club during the week of the now defunct BellSouth Classic. There were four players sitting at the table and the subject was Johnny Miller, who was about to work his first U.S. Open as a broadcaster in June, NBC having won the rights to the championship from ABC. “It’s a disgrace they’re going to let that guy do the Open,” said one player—a solid veteran who had never won on the the PGA Tour, but had steadily kept his card for years.

Unless banks and governments switch gears from tax cuts to addressing inequality, we may be in for a lengthy economic downturn soon. When Claudio Borio speaks, the big bankers and investors, the economics profession, and senior policymakers listen quite carefully—even if his sentiments don’t reach the shores of the popular media. Borio, the chief economist for the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the central bankers’ central bank, recently remarked on the fragility of the global economy, and suggested that we were on the verge of a significant relapse similar to the global crash experienced 10 years ago. Among the parallels he perceives: the proliferation of “collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), which are ‘close cousins’ of the infamous instruments known as collateralized debt obligations, or CDOs, and securities backed by residential mortgages,” the prevalence of which helped to crater the credit system in 2008.Mindful as central bankers have been about...
