    As part of its January 2017 issue exploring our evolving understandings and definitions of gender, National Geographic is featuring nine-year-old transgender rights activist Avery Jackson on its cover—the first time a trans person has made the cover of the magazine. Jackson rose to stardom last year when she began documenting her transition with “Avery Chats,” a series of YouTube videos describing how she came to understand her identity at such a young age and eventually came out to her parents as trans. “When I was born, doctors said I was a boy, but I knew in my heart I was...

    When Donald Trump mucks things up, the first person to let him know is usually Republican Party boss Reince Priebus. Almost every day, Trump picks up his cell phone to find Priebus on the line, urging him to quash some feud or clarify an incendiary remark. The Wisconsin lawyer has been a dutiful sherpa to the Manhattan developer, guiding him through the dizzying altitude of the presidential race and lobbying the GOP to unite behind a figure who threatens its future.

    Hillary Clinton has not yet declared her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination — but you wouldn't know it from The New York Times Magazine to be published on Sunday. The cover story, titled "Planet Hillary," is illustrated by a graphic showing a solar system with a huge planet at the center which features Clinton's smiling face. The teaser for the article by Amy Chozik, a national political reporter for the Times, reads: "The gravitational pull of a possible 2016 campaign is bringing all the old Clinton characters into her orbit. Can she make the stars align, or will chaos...

    The story is sweeping the Internet: President Barack Obama is trying to emasculate male Marines by making them wear a girly cover with their famed dress uniforms. The only problem? It’s not true. First, some background: Men and women in the Marine Corps currently wear different types of covers as part of their dress and service uniforms. The manufacturer of the women’s “bucket cover” – which has a distinctly different shape than the men’s cover – is going out of business and will not continue to make the cap, according to the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps also has been...

    Barack Obama wants the US Marines to start wearing girly unisex hats. The New York Post reported: A change to the Marine Corps’ uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street. Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a “unisex” look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush. “We don’t even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing...

    First lady Michelle Obama will reportedly appear on the cover of American Vogue for her second time in the April edition of the high fashion magazine. Obama was photographed wearing Reed Krakoff’s designs, according to the The Washington Post. Krakoff designed the blue dress the first lady donned at President Obama’s second official swearing-in on Jan. 20. The Post reports that photographer Annie Leibovitz tried and failed to get the first lady to pose in one of the more creative, dramatic shoots Leibovitz has done in the past. Obama first graced the publication’s cover for their March 2009 edition. Leibovitz...

    ATHENS, Greece -- Greece's crushing economic crisis, which has upended the country's politics and jeopardized its currency tie with the European Union, has also put another institution on the spot: the news media. Amid allegations of unethical journalistic practices that may have contributed to the mess the country's in, the outsider political coalition, whose popularity has skyrocketed, says it wants to abolish the cozy relationship that has long existed between media owners and politicians, and to halt the practice of government payments to individual journalists. On the eve of Sunday's second-round election, the outsider coalition, known as Syriza, or the...

    <p>It seems that Newsweek’s cover photo of Rep. Michele Bachmann has already proven to be a game-changer: it got Jon Stewart to defend the Republican presidential candidate for an entire segment– not an easy feat. Stewart blasted the magazine for deliberately finding an unflattering photo of the Congresswoman, arguing “you’ve got to go pretty far” to find an unflattering one, listing examples of Bachmann making “yelling into a bullhorn” look attractive, and giving editor Tina Brown a dose of her own medicine.</p>

    NEW YORK ( - Jon Stewart says the worst part about conservative complaints of media bias is when they contain "a kernel of truth" -- and that conservatives have a point about Newsweek's unflattering Michele Bachmann cover. The cover describes her as "The Queen of Rage." Stewart called Newsweek out on Tuesday's "The Daily Show" for using cheap attempts to undercut the Minnesota representative and Republican presidential candidate. He mocked the magazine's statement that it ran the photo to capture the way she has galvanized Iowa voters. "I get it, Newsweek," Stewart said. "You put in 'The Queen of Rage'...

    Rep. Michele Bachmann has declined to get into the scrum with Newsweek over its cover story of the presidential candidate called "The Queen of Rage," accompanied by an unflattering photo of the Minnesota Republican, but others are calling the magazine out of bounds in its depiction. The National Organization for Women (NOW) President Terry O'Neill said that the cover of the magazine's latest edition is "sexist" and referred to a simple test by the group's founder Gloria Steinem to explain how they determined that conclusion -- would the magazine do the same to a man.

Newsweek editor Tina Brown disagreed in a tweet today, contending that "Bachmann’s intensity is galvanizing voters in Iowa right now and Newsweek’s cover captures that." Really? It looks like it conveys, "This woman needs an exorcist."

    DAMASCUS, Syria – Syria has forbidden the country's students and teachers from wearing the niqab — the full Islamic veil that reveals only a woman's eyes — taking aim at a garment many see as political. The ban shows a rare point of agreement between Syria's secular, authoritarian government and the democracies of Europe: Both view the niqab as a potentially destabilizing threat. "We have given directives to all universities to ban niqab-wearing women from registering," a government official in Damascus told The Associated Press on Monday. The order affects both public and private universities and aims to protect Syria's...

Just this past weekend during his regular Saturday address - devoted to addressing what he called "false claims about reform" - Obama said he wants "an honest debate" on health care reform, "not one dominated by willful misrepresentations and outright distortions."

The contrast is so high as to show the imperfections that most people have in regards to facial skin. Particuarly for a man that, like most, shaves every day. It seems clear that Time went with the choice that makes Romney look ten years older and somewhat creepy. Now I defy anyone to show me...

    Teheran police order 64,000 women to cover up in the heat of summer By David Blair (Filed: 29/08/2006) Police in Iran's capital, Teheran, have stopped almost 64,000 women and warned them against breaching strict Muslim dress codes in the last month alone. The authorities have chosen the height of summer for a new crackdown to ensure that women cover their heads with veils and their bodies with long, heavy overcoats whenever they can be seen in public. For years, Iran's police turned a blind eye when young women pushed the boundaries of the rules by wearing the flimsiest of veils,...

    SACRAMENTO – A Democratic-written state budget is drawing fire from Republicans for expanding Healthy Families, a health care program for the children of the working poor, to include the children of illegal immigrants. The new spending plan, which could be voted on by the Senate and Assembly on Thursday, drops a requirement limiting the program to the children of legal residents. “It's another incentive for illegal immigration on top of the incentives already offered,” state Sen. Dennis Hollingsworth, R-La Mesa, said as a Democratic committee approved the proposed budget Saturday despite Republican opposition. Democratic legislators said the children of illegal...

    Sunni insurgents 'have al-Zarqawi running for cover' By Oliver Poole in Baghdad (Filed: 11/03/2006) Insurgent groups in one of Iraq's most violent provinces claim that they have purged the region of three quarters of al-Qa'eda's supporters after forming an alliance to force out the foreign fighters. If true, it would mark a significant victory in the fight against Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the head of al-Qa'eda in Iraq, and could partly explain the considerable drop in suicide bombings in Iraq recently. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi "We have killed a number of the Arabs, including Saudis, Egyptians, Syrians, Kuwaitis and Jordanians," said an...

    NEW YORK — A federal appeals court said yesterday that Hartford, Conn., police officers with offensive tattoos can be ordered not to display them, disappointing five officers who claimed the ban violates their First Amendment rights. "A police department has a reasonable interest in not offending or appearing unprofessional before the public it serves," the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said. The three-judge panel said a lower court judge was right last March to dismiss the lawsuit brought by five policemen against the city and its former police chief. The plaintiffs had argued that a city order giving the...

Thomas More Law Center attorney Robert Muise started the questioning in a simple format, asking, for example, if Behe had an opinion about whether intelligent design is creationism. Then he asked Behe to explain why. Behe said intelligent design is not creationism, but a scientific theory that makes scientific claims that can...

    The liberal press and the Democrat demagogues on Capitol Hill are having a hissy fit over "who blew the cover of Joe Wilson's wife." The answer is not hard to find. The culprit was Joe Wilson IV--with some help from his wife. When Wilson wrote an op-ed in The New York Times in July and revealed that he had gone to Niger on a CIA assignment, he called attention to his wife. CIA people who are really undercover are very careful about not identifying themselves or their families with the agency. They wait until their children are old enough to...

From what little I knew of her—mainly her propensity for declamations such as “liberals love America like O.J. loved Nicole”—I thought it impossible for Coulter to blush. Many of her fans would later tell me it was her fearlessness they admired, her fully unburdened sense of outrage against liberalism, against anyone left of Joseph McCarthy (whom Coulter flattered in her best-selling book Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism).

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Viagra, the blockbuster impotence drug, will be paid for under Medicare's new prescription drug coverage, officials said on Tuesday. A new prescription drug coverage law that takes effect next year means the government health insurance plan for the elderly must offer to help pay for medically necessary drugs, the officials said. That would include sildenafil, sold by Pfizer under the brand name Viagra, and other erectile dysfunction drugs. "If it's an illness then Medicare can cover it," a Health and Human Services (news - web sites) spokesman said. "There is no new broad Medicare rule to cover...

    Test data missing U.S. intelligence officials say the missing classified data at Los Alamos National Laboratory is related to secret nuclear tests conducted by computer simulation. The data is considered extremely sensitive because it is used in the maintenance and development of nuclear weapons. It is contained on several computer disks that were stored in a top-secret facility at Los Alamos, N.M. The disks were last used in April. When lab researchers went to use them in July, they were gone from a secure vault within the X Division. Los Alamos is currently studying the possibility of a nuclear warhead...

    Fate of Russia's lost art treasure revealed after 60-year cover-up John Ezard, arts correspondent Saturday May 22, 2004 The Guardian (UK) Steven Spielberg would have called it Indiana Jones and the Eighth Wonder, and supplied a happy ending. In a damp cellar, guarded by deadly snakes and senile but savage SS men, the holy grail of Russian art treasures would triumphantly have been liberated. According to evidence disclosed today in Guardian Weekend, the truth is more squalid. Peter the Great's 18th century Amber Room, rated as the world's prime missing art treasure, valued at £150m, perished in the chaos of...

    To Newsweek: Please change your name to “Opinion Week”, your cover is not news, it is opinion. Please don’t contradict yourself even before you get to the article. Unlike the cover, your cover story summary on page 5 says “signs of corruption MAY be turning Iraq into a money pit” (emphasis added). Your article further dilutes the screaming headlines. Please tell the whole story. First of all, the money is for both Iraq and Afghanistan, of which $65 billion is the cost of our military deployment in these countries. I would hardly call our military effort in those two countries...

    A federal judge was kept in the dark about failures in a computer system created to help track royalty payments that were owed to Native Americans, a court-appointed investigator reported yesterday. Last September, U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth said Interior Secretary Gale A. Norton had defrauded the court by making misleading statements about the department's efforts to fix management problems of oil, gas, mining, timber and other royalties from Indian lands. That included covering up failures of the Trust Asset and Accounting Management System.
