Top GOP Pollster to GOP: Reverse On Gay Issues
Below is a remarkable document. It's a memo circulated by Jan van Lohuizen, a highly respected Republican pollster, (he polled for George W. Bush in 2004), to various leading Republican operatives, candidates and insiders. It's on the fast-shifting poll data on marriage equality and gay rights in general, and how that should affect Republican policy and language.
Europe's lost generation: how it feels to be young and struggling in the EU
Viola Caon left her Italian home to find work. Now she returns to see how her former classmates are faring… and in the week that shocking figures showed how badly Europe's youth is being hit by the unemployment crisis, we also talk to hard-hit twentysomethings in Athens and Madrid
Deadlock in Davos as pressure on Greece rises
The move to make Greece hand over control of budgetary policy as the price for agreeing a €130bn rescue package would represent a humiliating blow to Greece's hopes of controlling its own destiny but could offer a means of staving off financial ruin.
SOPA/PIPA Blackout By the Numbers
Carl Franzen January 19, 2012, 12:55 PM In case you missed it, the Web on Wednesday, January 18 basically revolted en masse against two pieces of anti-piracy legislation being considered by the U.S. Congress, with tens of thousands of websites going dark or "censoring" parts of their U.S.

Social Entrepreneurs in Positive Moods as Annual Meeting Kicks Off

Politifact Backtracks After Fact Check Wreck
In the continuing annals of Politifact oddness, it seems that during the initial truth-squadding of last night's State Of The Union address, the fact-checking organization took issue with a section of the speech that, frankly, would have been otherwise forgettable. The section dealt specifically with job growth during the Obama administration.
Calling All Mothers, Calling All Babies: Introducing HuffPost Global Motherhood
I'm delighted to announce the launch of Global Motherhood, a new section within HuffPost Impact dedicated to the health and well being of mothers and babies around the world, and sponsored by Johnson & Johnson.

The (Im)morality of Capitalism: How to Have the Argument We Aren't Having
A democracy must be able to engage its own economy -- even a democracy as money-bloated and doubt-ridden as ours has become. To do that, we need a way of talking about the (im)morality of capitalism that lets us get hold of the issue and grapple with it.
Sunday Roundup
This week, while in Davos for the World Economic Forum, I watched President Obama deliver what was a great State of the Union speech... for 2009. Proposing the establishment of a financial crimes unit in January 2012 is like waiting three years before sending firemen to the scene of an inferno.
My Letter to the Internet
Dear Friends: Today, thousands of websites have chosen to voluntarily go offline or modify their home pages with public service information. Some have called this a stunt. I say it's a brave and poignant reminder that we can't take the Internet for granted.
Iowa Caucus Results: Rick Santorum Ahead Of Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney Madness: South Carolina Edition (VIDEO)
An odd thing seems to be afoot in the Republican presidential nomination race: The closer Mitt Romney gets to the nomination, the further he gets from sanity. It began 11 days ago at the Manchester, New Hampshire debate, where Romney stuttered and stammered his way around his mute, stunned Republican rivals and equally flummoxed debate moderators like a vinyl record with zig-zag grooves.

In 2005, Eugene Jarecki's documentary "Why We Fight" won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance for its incisive deconstruction of the military-industrial complex.

New Beginnings: Fly Me to the Moon
As much as I love science, I hated the lack of opportunities available to scientists before the revolution. I told myself that there was nothing I could do to change that, and that Egypt was going to stay the same way for many more years. I was wrong.
The Romney Tax Loophole
After refusing for weeks to release his taxes, Mitt Romney now says he'll do so -- by tax day, April 15. But the real news is what Romney has now admitted about his taxes -- the fact he doesn't want to become news once the media begin scouring his tax forms. It's not how much Romney earns.
Obama's State Of The Union Address: Everybody Must Play By The Same Rules

At the World Economic Forum: Calling for a Real Transformation - Now!

In South Carolina, Candidates And Citizens Occupy Separate Realms
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Inside a cavernous ballroom at a downtown hotel, Newt Gingrich stands beneath crystal chandeliers, addressing a crowd of several hundred local businesspeople -- most of them men in dark suits and ties, and many looking not unlike Newt Gingrich.
At Davos, Recognition of Global Slowdown

For-profit colleges have been in the hot seat over the past two years, with the federal government and more than a dozen state attorneys general probing fraudulent recruiting tactics and high student debt levels. But there has been relatively little attention paid to how the Wall Street corporations that own many for-profit colleges pay those at the top.
Mitt Romney's South Carolina Nightmare: What Keeps Him Up Late
ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Mitt Romney and his team left nothing to chance here on Wednesday, and it's a good thing, because they are looking over their shoulder at a Newt Gingrich who not only isn't dead but still has an outside chance to pull off a huge surprise in the South Carolina primary.
