  • GOP Senate candidate David Perdue autographs woman's insulin pump [Updated]

    By Eric Kleefeld
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:56 pm
    Update: BuzzFeed has now offered a retraction of sorts on its claim that Republican Senate candidate David Perdue autographed a young woman's body, with a second video from a different angle, and with clearer audio, illustrating that the young woman was holding something up for Perdue to sign"David was asked to sign an individual's diabetic pump to help raise awareness for juvenile diabetes," Perdue spokesperson Megan Whittemore told BuzzFeed. "This was a Georgia family who shared their personal story of their struggle with ObamaCare and the rising health care costs associated with their…

    Whatever problems Obama is facing with recalcitrant Republican opposition, Bill Clinton wants you to know he had it way, way worse.From The New York Times:[T]here is a counter view being offered by a former Democratic president that as far as personal attacks go, he, Bill Clinton, had it worse. "Nobody’s accused him of murder yet, as far as I know. I mean, it was pretty rough back then," Mr. Clinton said last month in an interview aired by PBS, when asked about the partisan climate facing Mr. Obama. [The New York Times]Clinton is referring to (ludicrous) conspiracy theories that…

    This weekend, activists will attempt to block the unloading of a container ship in Oakland, California. Here's what's going on, and what's behind it.What is Block The Boat?Block the Boat is a political campaign of nonviolent direct action against the state of Israel that bills itself as similar to the anti-apartheid movement against white South Africa — one of the first major boycotts of which also happened at the Oakland port back in 1984. By throwing sand in the gears of the Israeli economy, Block the Boat seek to change Israeli policy towards Gaza and the West Bank.Which company...
  • How Scott Brown is executing the perfect GOP Senate campaign

    24 Oct 2014 | 7:10 am
    Scott Brown, the former Massachusetts senator who changed his residency to take a crack at Congress from neighboring New Hampshire, is within striking distance of embarrassing New England Democrats once again.Recent polls have found Brown surging in his bid to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), an upset that would greatly increase the GOP's chances of retaking the Senate. A CNN survey released Thursday put Brown just two points back in the race, and poll aggregators paint a favorable trend line for him:Though Brown is still a longshot to win, his campaign has clearly been effective. And...
  • Gamergate might be gaming sexism's Waterloo

    The series of events the internet has called "Gamergate" might be a seminal moment for the gaming community in America.The Week's Ryan Cooper has a good summary of what Gamergate actually is, and how real valuable consumer products brands aren't able to figure out the core of the controversy.Aside from a few articles, the mainstream media has also stayed away from Gamergate, perhaps because editors think it's an insular, self-referential controversy that says nothing about society at large. Perhaps it's because the media doesn't really get gamers and doesn't know how to cover…

    At a press conference today, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged every New Yorker to get a flu shot.The symptoms of Ebola and the flu are quite similar, de Blasio noted, so getting a flu shot will help doctors and hospitals deal with the onslaught of people worried that their fever or fatigue could be Ebola. "Something that all New Yorkers should do," the mayor said: "Get a flu shot."Here's a bonus: You'll be protecting yourself against the far deadlier virus. More

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:56 am
    Movies like The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy are notorious for embedding small, winking references to those familiar with Marvel comics lore — and even Big Hero 6, the company's upcoming animated film, is getting in on the fun. In an interview with Slashfilm, co-directors Don Hall and Chris Williams revealed that Big Hero 6 has a few Marvel Easter eggs of its own — but you'll need to look very, very hard to spot them."I will say we generally have a lot of Easter eggs in this movie to the point that we had to really tell our artists to knock it off," said Williams.

    Italy's highest court, the Corte di Cassazione, found fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana not guilty of tax evasion charges on Friday.The new sentence will overturn the sentences of two lower courts, where Dolce and Gabbana had previously been tried. In April, Dolce and Gabbana were given a suspended 18-month jail sentence, and the investigation into the pair's business practices was sparked by a fraud investigation in 2009.After deliberating for three hours, the jury found Dolce and Gabbana, as well as several other employees of the company, not guilty."I am very…

    Want to sacrifice your life to the soulless Moloch of post-industrial capitalism? There's an app for that!The recent news that Apple and Facebook have decided to pay for egg-freezing for their female employees has generated a bit of buzz and some amusement, but not a lot of serious critique. Yet this is enormously revealing news — about post-industrial capitalism, about the sexes, about the contradictions of feminism on the one hand and conservatism on the other, and generally about The Way We Live Now.First, there is an obvious reason why this egg-freezing news is shocking: It is…
  • 10 self-sabotaging interview mistakes to avoid

    By Molly Triffin
    23 Oct 2014 | 6:01 am
    When it comes to fear-inducing situations, job interviews are right up there with public speaking and first dates.In fact, a recent survey found that 92 percent of people feel interview anxiety, citing doubt over their qualifications, whether they'd be able to answer questions correctly — and even if they'd make it to the meeting on time.Frankly, this stat should come as no surprise. After all, you're trying to build rapport with strangers in an unfamiliar place, you're being put on the spot — and there's a lot at stake from this one encounter.But in order to really rock that...
  • Paul Krugman, Amazon, and the left's backwards view of book-industry titans

    21 Oct 2014 | 3:17 am
    More and more, Paul Krugman is turning into a caricature of himself.The Nobel Prize–winning New York Times columnist wrote an op-ed this week arguing that Amazon wields a dangerous amount of clout, using Amazon's dispute over book prices with Hachette publishing group as his prime evidence. Amazon "has too much power," Krugman writes, "and it uses that power in ways that hurt America." Krugman compares Amazon to the Big Oil robber barons of a century ago, arguing that no matter how much customers love Amazon, the e-tail giant is bad....Amazon's defenders often digress into paeans to…
  • The main reason markets are jittery? The future looks gloomier than it did before.

    By Sayantan Ghosal
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:05 am
    After a relatively benign period, market upheaval has returned. The main stock market indices fell last week across Asia, Europe and the U.S., while safe-haven assets like gold have been on the rise. This followed a slow drip of bad economic news, not least the sharp fall in German industrial output in August. More recent was the latest "World Economic Outlook" by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which makes sober reading.The agency has downgraded the forecasts for global growth that it made in April and July. Lurking in the background is an underlying global debt problem: the slow,…

    Preparing for higher interest ratesThe balmy climate for bond investors is "about to get chillier," said Jonathan Burton at The Wall Street Journal. The Federal Reserve is signaling that the benchmark federal funds rate, currently near zero, will soon begin to rise and could approach 4 percent by the end of 2017. As a result, bondholders should "adjust their portfolios — and expectations." Experts say investors should keep a close eye on the pace of the rate increases. "Fast and furious will damage bond portfolios more than slow and steady." The good news is that the Fed has hinted any…

    Movies like The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy are notorious for embedding small, winking references to those familiar with Marvel comics lore — and even Big Hero 6, the company's upcoming animated film, is getting in on the fun. In an interview with Slashfilm, co-directors Don Hall and Chris Williams revealed that Big Hero 6 has a few Marvel Easter eggs of its own — but you'll need to look very, very hard to spot them."I will say we generally have a lot of Easter eggs in this movie to the point that we had to really tell our artists to knock it off," said Williams.

    Italy's highest court, the Corte di Cassazione, found fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana not guilty of tax evasion charges on Friday.The new sentence will overturn the sentences of two lower courts, where Dolce and Gabbana had previously been tried. In April, Dolce and Gabbana were given a suspended 18-month jail sentence, and the investigation into the pair's business practices was sparked by a fraud investigation in 2009.After deliberating for three hours, the jury found Dolce and Gabbana, as well as several other employees of the company, not guilty."I am very…

    At a press conference today, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged every New Yorker to get a flu shot.The symptoms of Ebola and the flu are quite similar, de Blasio noted, so getting a flu shot will help doctors and hospitals deal with the onslaught of people worried that their fever or fatigue could be Ebola. "Something that all New Yorkers should do," the mayor said: "Get a flu shot."Here's a bonus: You'll be protecting yourself against the far deadlier virus. More

    Lynn Shelton's Laggies, a warm dramedy about a woman (Keira Knightley) sorting out her late-20s malaise as she tries to find her true path in life, comes out today. And if you think you can relate to the film's premise, you're definitely not alone. "What was really quite interesting was that every woman I know has been through something like this. Every single person I know," Knightley said in a telephone interview with The Week. "And the fact that this story hadn't been told from a female perspective — as far as I can remember — was quite interesting and strange."Knightley…

    Your typical haunted house might make your heart race, your skin shiver, and your knees go weak — but all in all, they tend to be pretty predictable. You'll see a few cobwebs, hear a few screams, and get jumped at by a few people wearing cheesy rubber masks.But for Halloween junkies who really want thrills, there's another option: haunted houses so boundary-pushing that you need to sign a waiver just to get in the door. They're called extreme haunted houses, and more of them are popping up across the United States every year. Each one is different, but they tend to include a few…

The long commercial begins with Bundchen surfing, while a man — presumably her husband and the father of her daughter — waits forlorn at their palatial beach house. He places a love letter on a glass table and then leaves in his chauffeured Range Rover, right before Bundchen returns.Once back at the house Bundchen quickly embraces her daughter before sending her to the nanny, discovers the letter, makes a sad face, rushes off to do a…
  • 10 breakfast dishes fit for a crowd

    Having a breakfast with eight or more of your nearest and dearest always seems like a good idea. You get to eat, socialize, and maybe even enjoy a delicious cocktail.
