The survey of likely voters was conducted from Oct. 26 to 28, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points. The previous Siena poll from mid-September had Grimm ahead by a narrower margin, 44 percent to 40…

    The campaigns remain tight for a pair of Democratic-held Senate seats, according to a new pair of surveys from CNN.In Iowa, where Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin is retiring, Republican state Sen. Joni Ernst has 49 percent support, to Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley's 47 percent. Notably, each candidate has the same personal ratings in this poll: 49 percent favorable, to 47 percent unfavorable — though one can guess that the two sets of respondents might be almost mirror-image opposites of one another, viewing one candidate positively and the other negatively.In North Carolina, Democratic…

    Louisville weather forecaster Jude "Bones" Redfield just made good on his nickname, donning a green-screen skeleton outfit during today's Halloween broadcast from the local Fox affiliate.Redfield wore a green-screen suit with a plastic skeleton attached the to the front — so he could deliver the forecast with his head seeming to float from on top of the skeleton.A nice extra touch: The folks in the control booth put some music on, with David Lee Roth's cover of "I Ain't Got Nobody," with Roth's rendition of the jazz standard sounding like "I Ain't Got No Body." --Eric KleefeldWDRB...

  • How ISIS sells women and children

    By Colum Lynch
    31 Oct 2014 | 5:57 am
    In early August, fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria swept into the small Yazidi village of Maturat in Iraq's Sinjar district and took women to the Badush prison in Mosul. Hundreds more women and girls were herded into an ancient citadel in the town of Tal Afar in the northern province of Nineveh. From Tal Afar, a group of 150 unmarried girls and women, mostly from Christian or Yazidi families, were selected and reportedly sent to Syria "either to be given to ISIL fighters as a reward or to be sold as sex slaves," according to a report released on Oct. 2 by the United Nations'…

  • Israel's quiet doomsday submarines are almost ready

    By Robert Beckhusen
    31 Oct 2014 | 5:44 am
    The Israeli navy is a bit of an odd duck. It's designed largely for coastal and eastern Mediterranean warfare. But among all of Israel's small corvettes and missile boats are some some seriously mighty submarines.Israel is also investing heavily in growing its submarine fleet. It's a reflection of Tel Aviv's increasing reliance on the underwater boats for a range of operations  —  including nuclear deterrence.Right now, three Dolphin II-class submarines are under construction at Germany's ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems shipyards in Kiel. Once the submarines complete their trials and...

  • The Fed's (not so) new role: Champion of the working class

    By Rob Garver
    28 Oct 2014 | 12:52 pm
    Earlier this month, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen publicly picked up the income inequality banner that President Obama's administration has largely dropped in the face of multiple global crises, including the situation in Ukraine, the Ebola pandemic, and the rise of the terror group ISIS.Obama, in a speech last December, had called inequality the "defining challenge of our time" and committed his administration's full attention to fighting it for the remainder of his term. But Vladimir Putin, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and the Ebola virus had other plans, and what once looked like the…
  • Google spends more than any other tech giant to influence Congress

    By Yuval Rosenberg
    27 Oct 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Silicon Valley keeps playing the D.C. game. Tech and telecom giants including Google and Facebook spent millions on political lobbying in the three-month period from July to September, according to data released last week.Google spent nearly $4 million on its efforts to win favor with lawmakers, up 17 percent over the same period last year (but down from roughly $5.3 million last quarter). Among major tech-related companies only Comcast spent more last quarter. The cable giant, of course, is trying to win approval for its $45 billion mega merger with Time Warner Cable.Over the first nine...
  • 7 mental biases that could impact how you invest

    By Kate Ashford
    27 Oct 2014 | 5:49 am
    Fall, curiously, has never been viewed as a great season for investing.Historically, the stock market tends to see a decline in September, and it's generally considered the worst month performance-wise for stocks. Meanwhile, the biggest stock market crashes — Black Tuesday in 1929 and Black Monday in 1987 — both took place in October. Even pundits have a hard time pinpointing the market forces that can possibly explain why 'tis the season for skittish investors.But there is one thing that seems indisputable: There's no shortage of brain forces at work.Maybe the end of summer...
  • Personal finance tips: Choosing a college loan, and more

    By <a href="/author/sergio-hernandez" ><span class="byline">Sergio Hernandez</span></a>
    27 Oct 2014 | 3:08 am
    Choosing a college loanIf your family hasn't set aside anything for your kids' college tuition, don't panic, said Ron Lieber at The New York Times. You aren't alone, but "the sad fact is, most families with no savings will be borrowing a fair bit of money to send their children to college." Schools may offset the cost with grants, "but don't count on generosity here unless the school is particularly well endowed." Do your research on loans: Government-backed loans are the best, "and most traditional-age students can take out $31,000 in loans during their time as undergraduates." They also…
  • Who profits from plunging oil prices?

    By <a href="/author/sergio-hernandez" ><span class="byline">Sergio Hernandez</span></a>
    26 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Americans are getting some "badly needed relief" at the pump, said Stephen Moore at Fox News. The price of oil has plummeted this year, falling more than 25 percent since June alone, to just over $80 a barrel. The reasons are varied: Slowing economies in Europe and China are driving down demand, and the supply of oil has increased, thanks to fracking in the U.S. and renewed production in conflict zones like Libya. The lower prices could produce an "economic stimulus par excellence" here in the U.S. A sustained decline of this magnitude could translate into more than $200 billion a year of…

  • Poll: Indicted congressman still ahead -- by 19 points

    By Eric Kleefeld
    31 Oct 2014 | 6:45 pm
    Republican Rep. Michael Grimm appears poised for a landslide re-election from New York's 11th District, according to the new poll from Siena College — despite the fact that he is currently under federal indictment.Grimm has 53 percent support in the Staten Island-based seat, against Democratic former New York City councilman Domenic Recchia with only 34 percent. The survey of likely voters was conducted from Oct. 26 to 28, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points. The previous Siena poll from mid-September had Grimm ahead by a narrower margin, 44 percent to 40…

    The campaigns remain tight for a pair of Democratic-held Senate seats, according to a new pair of surveys from CNN.In Iowa, where Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin is retiring, Republican state Sen. Joni Ernst has 49 percent support, to Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley's 47 percent. Notably, each candidate has the same personal ratings in this poll: 49 percent favorable, to 47 percent unfavorable — though one can guess that the two sets of respondents might be almost mirror-image opposites of one another, viewing one candidate positively and the other negatively.In North Carolina, Democratic…

    If you're looking for a good new horror movie, there are plenty of directors whose works fit the bill. Leigh Janiak kicked things off last month with a limited release of her film Honeymoon. "Twisted Twins" Jen and Sylvia Soska debuted their latest feature, See No Evil 2, on DVD last week. Sundance selection A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night — cinema's "first Iranian vampire western," directed by Ana Lily Amirpour — is hitting theaters in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 21.

    November 7: InterstellarWhat it is: Christopher Nolan's latest ambitious blockbuster is set in a world ravaged by climate change, with an astronaut (Matthew McConaughey) who leads a team on a journey to the far edges of outer space.Why you should care: Nolan has his detractors, but there are few modern directors with enough clout to make a studio invest hundreds of millions into a totally original story — and early reviews of Interstellar have been largely positive (and occasionally rapturous). 2012's Inception was a brainy, well-acted sci-fi thriller with some genuinely jaw-dropping...

    When was the last time you actually wrote a letter by hand? Or practiced your cursive? It's probably been awhile. For most of us, writing by hand has taken a backseat to typing on a keyboard or tapping on a pocket-sized screen. And our schools are adopting these revised priorities, too.More and more schools are placing less focus on old-fashioned handwriting instruction. Common Core State Standards — the controversial national curriculum guidelines for students from kindergarten through 12th grade — only call for handwriting instruction from kindergarten to the 1st grade, but…

    "The unexamined life is not worth living." This statement, widely attributed to Socrates, is often offered as a bland, feel-goody bit of wisdom. It's not hard to imagine this advice on a poster showing a cute cat holding a magnifying glass. But for Socrates, it was a matter of fundamental importance — indeed, he died willingly for having led the examined life.We should all examine our lives and the fundamental nature of living. But few of us do. American culture is famously pragmatic. We are only interested in what works, what doesn't, and what will put a dollar in my pocket. We make…

    I went to Rome with my family when I was in seventh grade, at an age altogether too young to appreciate what was happening. Lots of walking, I think, is what I would have told you if you asked me afterward what there was in Rome. Lots of old things made out of stone. I took a heap of pictures for my Myspace profile, which, when I review them now, completely amaze me. I walked those streets! I saw those ruins! How was I not totally, constantly in awe? Apparently very little of the historical significance of the city could break through my pre-pubescent angst-atmosphere.But Rome was fast…
