Trial of Actress Illustrates First Amendment Violations in North Dakota

Shailene Woodley, who plays the main character in the Divergent series, was arrested for “criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot” when she participated in the Dakota Access Pipeline protests.

Twitter Needs to Address its Harassment Problem

For a lot of business users, Twitter can be a useful way to engage with customers and peers. For a lot of celebrities, it’s a way to interact directly with fans. For countless Internet trolls however, it’s a way to hide their identity so they can harass and threaten people online… and get away with […]

Information Technology is the Future of Cost-Efficient Healthcare

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009 encouraged the development of systems that shared documents such as care records, discharge summaries, and test results.

Is Donald Trump Worth Breaking Up Over?

The 2016 presidential election could easily go down as the most divisive election in U.S. history. Friendships have been severed. Marriages ruined. Families estranged. But is the controversial Donald Trump really worth terminating a relationship over? He very well could be. But before you make any final decisions, consider these key points. Why is your […]

Professional Athletes Debunk ‘Locker Room Talk’ Myth

After The Washington Post published footage of presidential nominee Donald Trump making a series of lewd remarks about women, the Republican frontrunner dismissed the comments as mere “locker room talk.” But professional athletes aren’t letting him get off that easy. Instead of using their celebrity status to abuse women, these athletes are using their stardom […]

Top Oncology Apps and Websites

49 States Don’t Pay Farm Workers Overtime

On September 12, 2016, California became the first state to pass a law that requires overtime pay for farm workers. While it’s certainly an accomplishment worth celebrating, it’s also worth noting that, by default, that means 49 states still don’t require overtime pay for farm workers. During peak seasons, it’s not uncommon for farmhands to […]

Helping Agricultural Start-Ups in Kenya

The cost of living in Kenya is largely out of sync with the financial capabilities of many of the nations’ residents. Even food has become too costly for the average citizen.

Hedgehogs Do Just Fine in Cities

Most people probably don’t think about hedgehogs all that often. They’re reasonably popular as pets, but they don’t end up in the news very often, probably because they’re not exactly breaking news and tend to do pretty well for themselves. Hedgehogs have been around for 15 million years and have survived through all kinds of […]

Smoking Weed Might Prevent Alzheimer’s

Good news for potheads: marijuana may help prevent Alzheimer’s. A recent study by researchers at the Salk Institute has discovered that endocannabinoids, which are naturally occurring receptors in brain cells, can clear out “plaque” that builds up and degrades brain cells over time. This plaque is connected to Alzheimer’s, but we aren’t entirely sure how–yet. For […]
