US News: Guardian Liberty Voice Daily Digest for July 23, 2014

The US News Daily Digest for July 23, 2014 has some old friends coming back to party again, as Michele Bachmann reconsiders her future.

The Dueling Philosophers

The Dueling Philosophers

Consciousness is the most familiar and bewildering phenomena in the universe. As observers, we share an experience of being an immaterial “I” resting somewhere between the ear lobes watching life’s narrative unfold. Yet when neuroscientists peer down the optic nerve, loop around the limbic system and up to the frontal lobes, the observer is nowhere […]

Rape Is Rape, Mr. Akin – Stop Talking

Rape Is Rape, Mr. Akin – Stop Talking

I am Canadian, and so, until this morning, I was unfamiliar with former congressman Todd Akin’s name or what the man stood for.  However, the hair on my neck stood on end when I read that he was retracting his apology for statements he made about rape back in 2012.  I was appalled to read […]

Entertainment and Pop Culture: It Matters!

It is weird that ever since I became a journalist, I find myself actually defending certain sections of journalism a lot more than I ever did before. It is with this in mind that I come to a strong bother of mine – one that I have battled repeatedly over the past few years: the interest in […]

Mental Health Patients All but Condemned in Africa

The only word to describe it is horrifying. While we definitely cannot take standards of Western society and enforce them in Third World nations, as that would be unfair, the images that photographer Robin Hammond are stark, painful and ultimately horrifying by any standards.  The New Zealand-born photographer was traveling through Sudan, on assignment to […]

Molestation Victims Need to Come to Terms With What Happened

Songstress Vanessa Williams recently opened up to Oprah Winfrey about her molestation at age 10, a story that she has been very open about in the past.  She admitted that the event, perpetrated by an 18-year-old, likely led to her becoming more sexually promiscuous as an adult.  Sadly, Williams’ story is not unique.  When someone […]

Weird Al Yankovic Schools Grammar Challenged Writers in New Video

  It is hard to take Weird Al Yankovic too seriously, which is exactly how he likes it because he does not take himself seriously either.

Forgotten Children in Hot Cars an Accident?

In these dog days of summer, it is easy to get taken up with the simple pleasures.  A fresh haircut, a trip to the beach, a nice walk – all of these are hallmarks of what is understandably a very laid back time of year.  It’s also very easy to forget a few things while […]

Bringing Home Karma

Bringing Home Karma

My BF and I have always had discussions over getting a pet. Growing up with dogs, I am a dog lover and we have had many a debate as to why we couldn’t get a dog. Knowing I was fighting an uphill battle, I decided to change my tactics. I had to think of a […]
