The Paris of Latin America  

Each week, we spotlight a dream vacation recommended by some of the industry's top travel writers. This week's pick is Buenos Aires, Argentina. (Courtesy image) Spend a week in Buenos Aires and you may feel like you've seen half of Europe, said Dina Mishev at The Washington Post. Home to "gorgeous architecture, a rich cafe culture, wide avenues to stroll, and narrow cobblestone streets to bike," the Argentine capital is for good reason known as the Paris of Latin America, though that may be se...

Regulate the internet  

Even though the motivations behind it are juvenile and paranoid, I cannot help but cheer for the bill introduced by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Mark Warner (D-Va.), and, of course, America's grandstander-in-chief, John McCain (R-Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood), to regulate the internet. The bill, an admirably specific piece of proposed legislation in the era of Graham-Cassidy Part XVII, would require websites with more than 50 million annual unique visitors to disclose information related to adver

The misery of being young in America today  

I grew up in a quiet place. Our house was on a road that had no name. My brothers and sister and I rode our bicycles, played Zelda and Monopoly, and built forts in the woods. As a teenager I read Stephen King and John Milton with equal enthusiasm, picked up Led Zeppelin LPs at the local thrift store, got bad grades, and wrote novels and poems on a typewriter. Taking a desultory interest in politics, I read a lot of antiwar.com and became a Marxist. I fell in love reasonably often. The "future"

How American women are left to rot in jail  

When it comes to mass incarceration, men get most of the attention — and for obvious reasons. Men commit roughly 80 percent of violent crimes, and they make up over 90 percent of prisoners. However, by industrialized country standards, America's imprisonment of women is arguably even worse than it is for men — and as a new analysis from Aleks Kajstura at the Prison Policy Initiative shows, a great many of those women do not need to be behind bars. Kajstura did a lot of painstaking work to ...

The smartest sex scene on television  

In remaining relatively loyal to the books, Outlander has made some bold choices that other shows might have avoided — for instance, aging its extremely good-looking protagonists 20 years and separating them for roughly half a season. But that's what Outlander has done. And finally, after six episodes and 200 years apart, our lovers have reunited. After returning to the 20th century and rejoining her (first) husband Frank to raise Brianna, her child with Jaime, Claire discovers that Jaime did...

Trump is a bad fascist. But what about the next one?  

We're just lucky that President Trump turns out to be such a bad fascist. He certainly has the right temperament and inclinations. But he altogether lacks the commitment, the discipline and focus, the gumption to be a Stalin or a Pinochet. He never understood the mechanisms of democratic government well enough to successfully undermine them: He was outraged to learn that a lowly judge could countermand his fiats, that he doesn't automatically command the fealty of major departments and institut

Czech Republic elects billionaire nationalist skeptical of the EU, immigration  

Over the weekend, Czech voters gave a resounding victory to billionaire Andrej Babis and his ANO party, handing the nationalist party 78 seats in the 200-seat parliament. Babis, the Czech Republic's second-wealthiest man, will now try to form a government coalition with some of the other eight parties that won seats. The surprise second-place finisher, the Civic Democrats (25 seats), similarly don't want the country to adopt the euro currency, but have ruled out governing in coalition with ANO.

At one point, all five ex-presidents — Jimmy Carter, George. H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama — were on stage, and Carter spoke, then Clinton.

John McCain takes a barely veiled swipe at Trump's Vietnam-draft-deferring 'bone spurs'  

President Trump may prefer war heroes who were not captured, as he infamously said of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2015, but McCain apparently prefers presidents who did not avoid serving in Vietnam because of bone spurs — a condition Trump says kept him out of the war after his college deferments ran out. In a C-SPAN interview about the Vietnam War broadcast Sunday night, McCain talked about the strategic failings of Vietnam and the social upheaval it unleashed in the U.S., then pointedly c...

Introspection gives us the empathy to give those who oppose us a second chance—even the racists  

Like most men, I grew up being sexist and homophobic. It did not help that it was part of the culture of the Latin American country I am from. My path away from homophobia deserves a whole article of its own. But most importantly, my path to becoming a feminist (and gay rights activist) makes me a much more empathetic person toward racists and others I am diametrically and morally opposed to. This may sound strange, but hear me out. I became a feminist soon after I entered the University o...

And that makes him angry.  In a tightly controlled voice, President Obama announces...

There were 36,252 firearm deaths in the U.S. in 2015 — including 22,018 suicides and 12,979 homicides — and at least 85,000 injuries. Every day, an average of nearly two women are shot dead by their partners. Nearly 6,000 children are sho...

Alice McDermott's 6 favorite books of poetry  

The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats (Scribner, $22). I love the value of big books of poetry, and for good reason: My parents literally weighed the paperbacks I was required to purchase for school. (Signet Classics' edition of Middlemarch at $5.95 was a good deal. Forty-five cents for The Turn of the Screw? Not so much.) Yeats' collected works might as well be called Poems for All Occasions. Love, marriage, death, divorce ("the hour of waning love is upon us"), reunions, elections. And of course

5 great microwaves  

1. LG LCS1112ST ($133) This midsize 1,000-watt countertop microwave is quick, quiet, and easy to use. It excels at defrosting and heating food evenly. Its one weakness when compared with pricier models: It lacks a humidity sensor, which adjusts cooking times automatically. Buy it at Best Buy. 2. Breville Quick Touch ($165) A splurge buy, Breville's state-of-the-art 1,100-watt beauty features a large LCD display, a ­humidity sensor, and dials for quickly adjusting the cook time and power leve...

This week in creepy science: Halloween edition  

Interviews with people who were brought back from the brink of death combined with some basic neurophysiology lead to a rather macabre conclusion: in some cases it may be possible to perceive, feel, and perhaps even think after you are technically dead, or so close to being dead there's little difference. Which sounds perfectly horrible, just in time for tricks and treats: A significant number of participants in the study report being aware of their surroundings during the period in whic...

This week in the war on workers: Millions of women lack legal protection from the Harvey Weinsteins  

Sexual harassment and assault has been in the headlines, thanks/no thanks to serial offender Harvey Weinstein, and many reasons have been offered for why women wouldn't or couldn't come forward. Bryce Covert offers an additional one: actresses have no federal protections against workplace sexual harassment, and they're not alone.  Any who were working on a Weinstein film were almost certainly classified as independent contractors, not regular employees. And that means that the anti-...

John Kelly Shames the Shameless Media  

Eddie Scarry, Washington ExaminerAs badly as White House chief of staff John Kelly roasted Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., his statements about her unseemly politicization of the president's call to a Gold Star widow were at the same time a rebuke to how the media reflexively aided Wilson's narrative. Kelly said at the press briefing Thursday that he was "stunned" and "brokenhearted" when he saw Wilson in TV interviews and quoted in news reports divulging details about a personal call from Trump

View from the Left: John Kelly now just a tool of the 'deranged animal' in the White House  

When Donald Trump heard the words he spoke this week to a grieving pregnant widow repeated back to him, even he seemed to grasp how horrific they were. "Didn't say what that congresswoman said—didn't say it at all," Trump charged Wednesday, his arms crossed defiantly at a White House meeting. "She knows it and she now is not saying it." She, otherwise known as Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida, was indeed still saying it—that Trump had called the family of fallen soldier Sgt...

The NFL dispute isn't the first time Trump has weaponized the American flag against a community  

When Donald Trump decided to accuse NFL players protesting police brutality of "disrespecting" the American flag, it wasn't his first turn with using nationalistic jingoism to divide a community against itself for his own benefit. In fact, the case of a 70-foot flagpole he illegally erected at one of his golf courses in 2006 likely served as a dry run for the way he has weaponized the American flag against people of color in his ongoing attack on First Amendment rights.   NPR's Embedded podc...

The others, he has reportedly told insiders? "Ok," one source told Trump, "so that's two. Who are the others?" "Ginsburg," Trump replied. "What does she weigh? 60 pounds?" "Who's the four...

WHO under fire for making Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe a goodwill ambassador  

The World Health Organization (WHO) came under intense criticism Saturday for its decision to name Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe as the organization's newest goodwill ambassador. The position is mostly symbolic, but the 93-year-old Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980, is widely considered a dictator, and his government stands accused of gross human rights violations. "The decision to appoint Robert Mugabe as a WHO goodwill ambassador is deeply disappointing and wrong," said Dr. Jerem
