Decade Of Change For College Students: Less Religious, More Diverse And Lonely

The Obamacare Curse: What If, Next Month, the Republicans Finally Get What They Want?

It is dawning on the GOP that snatching health insurance away from millions of helpless victims is not quite as rewarding as expected. Last summer, two Republican-appointed federal judges ruled, against the furious dissent of the Democratic appointee, in favor of what had theretofore been viewed as an outlandish lawsuit designed to blow up Obamacare. The unexpected progress of the lawsuit, hatched by anti-Obamacare activists at a right-wing think tank, filled conservatives with sudden Schadenfreude. They...

Fox News Is Hurting Republicans, Former Bush Official Says

  Fox News is hurting the Republican Party, according to a study conducted by a top official in the first Bush administration. The study, authored by Bruce Bartlett, who worked in the Treasury Department under George H. W. Bush and was also a domestic policy adviser to Ronald Reagan, found that Fox viewers tended to be less informed about current affairs than people who watch mainstream news -- and even people who don't watch the news at...

Asian American Heritage Month: Changing stereotypes

America is a melting pot. Cliché, yes, but true. Everyone in this country can trace back to origins somewhere else. We celebrate diversity with Black Heritage Month in February, and National Hispanic Heritage month in the fall. May is Asian-American Heritage Month. And while some may argue about the concept itself of "Heritage month," we see it as an opportunity to explain and share cultures, shatter stereotypes and perhaps change perceptions. Gil Asakawa is the Manager of Student...

Decade Of Change For College Students: Less Religious, More Diverse And Lonely

America's college students have become less religious, more stressed and overwhelmingly in favor of marriage equality over the past decade. Campus life has grown more complicated, with soaring complaints of sexual violence and students so captivated by social media that they're hanging out less with friends. And, with many students now burdened by a lifetime of student loan payments, graduation no longer provides a tidy passage from school to career. For The Huffington Post's 10th birthday,...

President Obama's Approval Rating Gets A Bump

President Obama's Approval Rating Gets A Bump

President Barack Obama's job approval rating is positive for the first time in two years, according to a WSJ/NBC poll released Monday. The survey finds that 48 percent of Americans say the president is doing a good job, while 47 percent disapprove of his performance. The Wall Street Journal warns that "Obama shouldn't celebrate too much," considering a one-point net positive score is within the margin of error. Still, it marks the highest approval that WSJ/NBC has...

Asians struggle to become executives at major Silicon Valley companies, study shows

The glass ceiling in Silicon Valley is pretty hard to crack for Asian-Americans, a new study shows, with Asians only representing 13.9 percent of executives at five Silicon Valley-headquartered companies. The nonprofit Ascend Foundation is publishing a new study today examining the effects of gender and race as negative factors in the glass ceiling for Asians, based on the Executive Parity Index (EPI). The index represents the ratio of one group’s representation at the executive level...
