    O say can you see, the Statue of Liberty? A portion of Lady Liberty mysteriously went dark save for the iconic colossal's torch and crown on Tuesday night. The statue was cast in darkness for at least an hour around 11 p.m. and even the National Park Service seemed perplexed by the New York harbor’s black void. “Some lights on the Statue were temporarily off tonight,” a spokesman for the Statue of Liberty National Monument tweeted. The “unplanned outage” may have been due to emergency generator project as part of its “last remaining Hurricane Sandy recovery,” but park official Jerry...

Associate professor Norou Diawara sent the email to members of ODU’s Coalition of Black Faculty and Administrators and a list of statistics graduate students Monday afternoon saying he was “not happy at all, with the state of the affairs in the USA. It is very sad we have come to this level.” He said...

    California State Sen. Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) is renewing a demand to see First Lady Melania Trump’s immigration papers — an issue Democrats first raised during the election campaign.Skinner expanded on her demand in an interview with Politico this week: “No one in the Trump operation has released any of the documentation to indicate what was the circumstance, or whether she had full legal status. … We only know they had a lawyer look at whatever papers she chose to give.”In 2010, when Arizona passed a controversial immigration law that allowed state and local law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of anyone...

    Hollywood gave itself some more awards last night, because if there’s anything America needs, it’s another awards show. And as Scott Greer reports, one of the “winners” used his acceptance speech to send out an open call for political violence: Attendees at Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards gave an uproarious standing ovation to “Stranger Things” star David Harbour’s call to punch unnamed people who oppress “the weak and the disenfranchised…” “We will hunt monsters and when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and the casual violence of certain individuals and institutions, we will, as per Chief Jim...

    Just days after The National Park Service (NPS) was forced to shut down its Twitter activity over two retweets the Department of the Interior deemed inconsistent with the agency’s mission, the Twitter account for Badlands National Park in South Dakota seems to have gone rogue, tweeting numerous scientific facts about climate change that have since been deleted. The first tweet about climate science came at 11:40 a.m. local time Tuesday. It said: “The pre-industrial concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was 280 parts per million (ppm). As of December 2016, 404.93 ppm.”

    During a new interview with comedian Marc Maron on the WTF podcast, Bruce Springsteen questioned President-elect Donald Trump’s basic “competency” three weeks before he’s set to take the oath of office. “I’ve felt disgust before, but never the kind of fear that you feel now,” Springsteen said. “It’s as simple as the fear of, is someone simply competent enough to do this particular job? Do they simply have the pure competence to be put in the position of such responsibility?” The rocker, who campaigned for Hillary Clinton, went on to express his concerns that Trump’s campaign unleashed “bigotry, racism, intolerance”...

    This news organization spent an hour talking to Edwards, 74, about what Kaepernick has done and where the movement needs to go. Here is an edited version of the conversation with the UC Berkeley professor emeritus who lives in Fremont: . . . "When I contacted the Smithsonian (new National Museum of African American History and Culture), I told them they shouldn’t wait another five or six years to get Kap’s shoes, jersey and photo of the Time magazine cover and a photo of him kneeling. They need to do that now. They absolutely agreed."

    It didn’t take long after last month’s presidential election for millions of Americans to cycle through several stages of grief before landing on the third, bargaining, and basically just sit on that level. As election results rushed and then trickled in showing Democrat Hillary Clinton had won the popular vote by a historic margin while still losing the Electoral College to a candidate who had never held elected office and who appeared somewhat disinterested in the reality of governing, people wondered if there was another way. Detractors in the end coalesced around a long-shot strategy to deny Donald Trump the...

    Thousands of people are expected in Washington, D.C., next month to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump. They'll join thousands more who will be there to celebrate the incoming president.

"We have buses coming from Philadelphia, New York, New Haven, Boston, Chicago, cities in Florida," she says. The group's slogan is "Stop the Trump Agenda." Mrabet says they're especially opposed to imposing new restrictions on immigrants, Muslims...
