    On April 14, 1852, Lloyd and Lodisa Frizzell and their four sons, with “five yoke of cattle one pony & sidesaddle” in tow, departed their home, on the Little Wabash River in southeastern Illinois, for California. Seventy-two days into their voyage, Lodisa would write in her journal (later titled Across the Plains to California in 1852): That this journey is tiresome, no one will doubt, that it is perilous, the deaths of many testify, and the heart has a thousand missgivings, & the mind is tortured with anxiety, & often as I passed the fresh made graves, I have glanced...

    AMP, as the program is called, will harness the power of public-private partnerships between universities, industry and governmental agencies in an effort to streamline innovation and bring products more quickly to market. "We need to reinvigorate our manufacturing sector to lead the world," Obama said in the speech. "We need to do it now. Not sometime in the future. Now." AMP will be co-chaired by Susan Hockfield, president of MIT, and Andrew Liveris, chairman, president and CEO of Dow Chemical. "I'm enthusiastic about the spirit and content of our joint work," Hockfield said in a press release. "and I'm also...

    With Republicans controlling the House and with his 2012 re-election bid around the corner, President Obama has been on a quest for reinvention since last year's midterm elections. His most public step has been to shake up the West Wing, including by hiring a new chief of staff and, soon, a new press secretary. But privately, Obama has tried to overcome the criticism that his White House has been too insular by soliciting advice from those outside his tight-knit inner circle. Among those who have visited Obama in recent weeks, according to New York Magazine's John Heilemann: former Reagan chief...

  • Why you haven't "reinvented" your company - 5-5-2005

    The word "reinvent" is a dumb term, having an overtone of redundancy. After all, when you have invented something, it exists. You can revise it or change it, but you can't "reinvent" it after you have already invented it. I never heard the term when I first entered the workforce. But somewhere in the 1970s or so, corporate executives-began using the word, and using it a lot. Then as now, the nation had its usual economic ups and downs, but suddenly after one downturn, our nation was heavily laden with companies that had reinvented themselves. What happened is that after...
  • Reid: Bush, GOP Seek to Reinvent Reality

    WASHINGTON - Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said Thursday that President Bush and Republican senators are trying to "rewrite the Constitution and reinvent reality" in their push to confirm controversial judicial nominees. "The Senate is not a rubber stamp for the executive branch," Reid said. "Rather, we're the one institution where the minority has a voice and the ability to check the power of the majority. Today, in the face of President Bush's power grab, that's more important than ever." Republicans are threatening to eliminate the Democrats' ability to use filibusters to block Bush's judicial picks, beginning with federal appeals...

    Mona Charen: Hillary cannot reinvent her past BY MONE CHAREN Published Saturday, January 29, 2005 A little immigration reform here, a little religion in the public square there, a little gentle talk about common ground on abortion - and what have you got? A new, moderate Hillary Clinton, announces the press. "Democratic Party appears to be getting softer on reproductive rights," headlined a National Public Radio story. "Gasps as Hillary woos the anti-abortion vote," reported the London Daily Telegraph. "Hillary Clinton Seen as Staking Out Centrist Positions," announced the Bulletin's Frontrunner. It's a testament to the rigidity and extremism of...
  • When Courts Reinvent Marriage (Gary Bauer)

    America suddenly finds itself in the middle of a national debate over the definition of marriage. Many Americans are perplexed by this debate, and understandably so. Marriage in the United States and throughout Western civilization has always meant the union of one man and one woman. Now that truth is under radical attack. But while it is not surprising to see some on the political left embrace a radical new meaning of marriage, what has been surprising and disappointing is the confusion among some on the right who claim that a proposal to preserve marriage through a constitutional amendment violates...
