    If you're interested in whether rent control makes rent prices go down — and plenty of people think it actually makes them go up — then stop what you're doing and watch this video on San Francisco's real-estate war, by my colleague Andrew Stern. The video features a heartbreaking interview with artist David Brenkus, who has lived in a rent-controlled apartment on Walter Street for 34 years.

    They come to him — students, co-workers and congregants alike, sometimes in tears — with their questions: What should we do, Imam Zaid? What should we do about the suspicion, about the hatred, about the second glances and the threat of confrontations on the street? What should we do about Donald Trump and his rhetorical attacks on Muslim immigrants? And how do we process the deadly attacks by people who invoked our religion? Should we return to our ancestral home countries, hunker down in the shadows?

    COACHELLA, California — Holy prayers at a mosque here on Friday were canceled with families gawking behind fire lines after discovering the front of their holy house had become one big fireball. Late Friday night, authorities announced that they believe the fire was deliberately set, and the local branch of the FBI is investigating as a possible hate crime. In addition, a person of interest has been detained, but not identified. Members of the congregation are blaming GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for setting the ugly tone that charred their house of worship. The mosque began to burn at around...

    In the wake of the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Muslims around the U.S. say the rhetoric against them has becoming increasingly incendiary. A few weeks ago, armed protesters picketed a mosque in Irving, Texas, some chanting "Every Muslim is a terrorist!" In Virginia, tempers erupted at a meeting over building a mosque -- one man yelled "every one of you are terrorists" at a Muslim man. Sunday night in Philadelphia, a severed pig's head was found outside a mosque....

    Black Agenda Report ^ | August 27, 2014 | Colin Jenkins
    The logic of Black rebellion is lost on much of the privileged white population and the corporate media, which perceive Black rage as irrational. However, the Black response to white supremacy is not senseless or visceral; it is the product of a life full of experiences that have tried to beat them down to their knees.I wanted revenge on those racist bullies who had joyfully traumatized a pair of 9-year-old boys walking to the store. On a crisp, Fall evening in 1992, while I was a freshman at a SUNY (State University of New York) school, the campus erupted after...

    The home-cooked meal has long been romanticized, from 50s-era sitcoms to the work of star food writer Michael Pollan, who once wrote, far from oppressing them, the work of cooking approached in the proper spirit offered a kind of fulfillment and deserved an intelligent womans attention. In recent years, the home-cooked meal has increasingly been offered up as the solution to our country's burgeoning nutrition-related health problems of heart disease and diabetes. But while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food, sociologists Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott, and Joslyn Brenton from North Carolina State University argue that the stress that...

    As the army takes control of Egypt, demonstrators in favour of the ousted president feel isolated and ignored. Cairo - The fireworks celebrating Egyptian President Mohamed Morsis removal by the military are visible a few kilometres away, where thousands of his supporters are holding a sit-in, a protest they plan to continue until Morsi is reinstated. Hours after his removal, the mood at the rally, outside a mosque in Cairos Nasr City neighbourhood, was sombre and confused. Supporters of Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood wondered how the man who last year became Egypts first democratically-elected president could be ousted so...

    Speaker John Boehner told fellow House Republicans in an Easter week memo that his decision to allow the sequestration cuts to take effect has forced President Barack Obama and the Democrats to confront economic issues they have long been avoiding. We forged a new tactical plan that focused on using our limited leverage to maximum effect in support of the reforms needed to support economic growth and job creation for all Americans, Boehner wrote in the memo distributed to House Republicans on Thursday. Republicans may be the minority party in Washington but because we forged a plan together and...
