After plane horror, Europe must stand up to Putin

Vladimir Putin has become a global menace.

Moon landing 45 years ago brought us together

It was, after all, only a boot-crunching dust. You wouldn’t think the sight would affect so many or change so much.

Smart shoppers choose cheaper store-brand aspirin

At CVS, a 100-tablet package of store-brand aspirin costs you $1.99. Bayer aspirin is three times that much. Nonetheless, millions of people end up buying Bayer. When it comes to headache remedies, salt, sugar and hundreds of other important products, many people choose national brands even when a cheaper store brand is at hand. Why?

Leopoldo Lopez’s imprisonment is a symptom of a sick Venezuela

This year, my husband, Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, spent his 43rd birthday behind bars. To mark Leopoldo’s birthday, our children, Manuela, 4, and Leopoldo, 1, and I tried to bring him a birthday cake at the Ramo Verde military prison. We were turned away. We were forced to celebrate on the street outside the prison, where our family sang Happy Birthday to a life-size picture of him.

 
The detention of popular newscaster Rui Chenggang was a surprise.

Fall of favored son prompts debate in Chinese media

There had never been a Chinese television personality quite like the handsome and erudite Rui Chenggang. At the tender age of 36, he’d become the most popular personality on China’s state-owned CCTV network. Economic News, his high-profile nightly business news program, boasted an estimated 10 million viewers. Rui himself counted the same number of followers on the Sina Weibo microblog.

Let’s treat gun safety as a public health issue

Quick, are you more likely to die by a bullet or in a car crash?

The hand that rocks the ballot box

In their denouncements of the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats have been accused of pandering to single women — the so-called “Beyonce voter” demographic, as one Fox News commentator sniggered.

Cutting corporate taxes won’t help the middle class

Earlier this week, I testified in front of the Joint Economic Committee on the topic of assessing the recovery after five years.

Informed and fashionable: yes, it’s possible

Two months ago, I left the White House after six years of working for President Barack Obama. As anyone who’s had the privilege of serving a sitting president can tell you, the job is both tremendously rewarding and incalculably demanding. No advanced degree or job experience truly prepares you for the tidal wave of responsibility and the sheer gravity of history that beckons each day. The Arab Spring. Newtown. Hurricane Sandy. The Affordable Care Act. It is one of those jobs that never really leaves you.

Putin’s missing a chance to escape a losing war

President Vladimir Putin is missing a golden opportunity by not disowning the pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine. Instead, as pro-Putin media and social network trolls invent increasingly fantastical versions of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, Russia risks becoming a pariah even to developing countries that have sympathized with its anti-American stance.

Obama says he ended the ‘War on Drugs.’ Don’t believe him.

If the Obama administration is to be believed, America’s infamous “War on Drugs” is over.

We’re raising a generation of timid kids

A week ago, a woman was charged with leaving her child in the car while she went into a store. Her 11-year-old child. This week, a woman was arrested for allowing her 9-year-old daughter to go to the park alone. Which raises just one question: America, what the heck is wrong with you?

Follow these rules if you want to run for office — and actually win

The 2014 election year is just kicking into gear, but we’ve learned so much already. Among the political pointers for candidates of the future:

U.S. nation-building efforts should be in Central America, not Iraq and Afghanistan

It’s nice to see the United States paying attention to Central America again. Too bad it took tens of thousands of desperate children pouring across the border to attract our interest.

The EPA’s carbon plan asks the least from states that pollute the most

The EPA’s Clean Power Plan is undoubtedly one of the biggest regulatory events in decades. The proposed rule under the Clean Air Act is the centerpiece of the Obama Administration’s strategy to address climate change, and its champions laud it as an important step in combating climate change and a boon to public health, while its detractors say it represents a war on coal and an abuse of executive power.
