    Couple Loses 2 Homes in 2 Months to California Wildfires

    Dr. Antonio Wong and his wife remember falling in love with their first home, a 3,000 square-foot beauty in Southern California they’ve owned for more than a decade. “You have your first love, your first home, your first car,” said Wong, 50, an anesthesiologist. They rented out their Ventura home when they moved out of state in 2008. But California drew them back. In May of this year, Wong and his wife, Pratima, 48, bought their second home in the […]

    Who is Doug Jones, the Democrat Who Just Won the Senate Race in Alabama?

    In a shocking upset Tuesday night, Democrat Doug Jones was projected to become the US senator-elect for the state of Alabama, defeating embattled Republican Roy Moore. The deep-red state elected Jones after his opponent, Moore, was accused by multiple women of pursuing relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s, and some of them accused Moore of sexual assault or abuse. Moore, now 70, has denied the allegations, painting them as a smear campaign by […]

    Alabama Senate Election Results: Democrat Doug Jones Projected to Win, But Republican Roy Moore Refuses to Concede

    Doug Jones on Tuesday became the first Democrat in a generation to win a Senate seat in Alabama, beating Republican Roy Moore amid a firestorm of allegations that the GOP candidate had sexually abused teens. Moore, however, refused to concede Tuesday night. “When the vote is this close … it’s not over,” Moore told supporters after Jones declared victory. The results are nothing short of an embarrassment for President Donald Trump and a disaster for Republicans in Washington as the […]

  • Alabama Senate Election: Results Being Tabulated After Polls Close

    The Senate race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones is a Tuesday night cliffhanger, as votes are counted in a state where the GOP candidate would normally be an easy winner. The big question: whether the allegations against Moore of sexually abusing teens and his history of controversial comments about women and minorities will be enough for a reliably red state to elect its first Democratic senator in a generation. A Jones win would trim the Republican Senate […]

    California Mulls Plan That Would Place Mileage Tax on Drivers

    California may be moving closer to charging drivers for every mile they drive. The state says it needs more money for road repairs, and the gas tax just isn’t bringing in enough revenue, according to Bay Area television station KPIX. Recently, it road-tested a mileage monitoring plan. The California Road Charge Pilot Program is billed as a way for the state to move from its longstanding pump tax to a system where drivers pay based on their mileage. But it’s […]

  • How Bullied Tennessee Boy’s Emotional Plea in Viral Video Brought Him Yet More Bullying

    It started off so neatly: the perfect story to cap a rocky year, a reminder that commonality exists in the face of division. On Friday, an 11-year-old Knoxville, Tennessee, boy woefully recounted to his mother his experience with middle-school bullies. His mother posted the teary plea online and citizens across the internet responded en masse to say: Keaton Jones, we’ve got your back. Now, in place of that solidarity lie confusion, questions and anger. The mother’s old social media postings […]

  • How a Democrat Could Win Senate Race in Alabama

    It hasn’t happened in more than a decade, but it might just happen on Tuesday. The last time a Democrat won a major statewide election in Alabama was in 2006, when Jim Folsom Jr., a former Alabama governor, won the lieutenant governorship after more than a decade out of politics. He won the seat against none other than Luther Strange, the Trump-backed incumbent who lost the primary to Moore this fall. Folsom Jr., who comes from a famous Alabama political […]

    Merriam-Webster Names ‘Feminism’ as Its Word of the Year 

    In the year of the #MeToo movement, it’s no surprise that Merriam-Webster dictionary’s word of the year for 2017 is “feminism.” Merriam-Webster said “feminism” was the most looked-up word in its online dictionary, with the term generating 70% more searches than last year. Those spikes in interest were tied to several major events dealing with women’s issues this year. In January, the word spiked after the Women’s March in Washington (with “sister marches” around the world), held the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration. […]
