Perhaps the hardest thing to do in contemporary American politics is to imagine how the world looks from the other side. The most personally moving, and most fundamentally patriotic, moment of the Democratic National Convention was the appearance by the bereaved parents of Army Captain Humayun Khan, and the statement about the meaning of their son’s life and death, and about the Constitution, by Mr. After Khizr Khan spoke, politicians and commentators on most networks said they were moved, humbled, inspired, choked up.
The trade association wanted Americans to to wash quite unwittingly after toilet, to wash without thought before eating, to jump into the tub as automatically as one might awake each new day. In 2006, Donald Trump made plans to purchase the Menie Estate, near Aberdeen, Scotland, aiming to convert the dunes and grassland into a luxury golf resort. In the 19th century, children, youths, and adults “mingled freely together” at rowdy campaign rallies, lured by the holy trinity of booze, barbecue, and bonfire. The Atlantic’s editors and writers share their recommendations for summer reading—new titles, old favorites, and others in between. In her first novel, Yaa Gyasi cleverly weaves the intergenerational tale of a family through a series of short, but interrelated stories set in what’s now Ghana during the mid-18th century.
The Pew Research Center reported last week that nearly a quarter of American adults had not read a single book in the past year.
If you are the sort of person who believes that TV and the Internet have turned American culture into a post-literate scrubland full of cat GIFs and reality TV spinoffs, then this news will probably reinforce your worst suspicions.
Without question, the American bookworm is a rarer species than two or three decades ago, when we didn't enjoy today's abundance of highly distracting gadgets.
Some Americans have unknowingly adopted Chinese babies taken from their parents and sold to orphanages. Last month, my wife and I found ourselves in a disagreement about whether or not our apartment was clean enough for guests—the type of medium-sized disagreement that likely plagues all close relationships.
At the end of 2013, in the low-slung, industrial Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung, a bevy of officials came to attend the ribbon cutting of a huge former hotel that had undergone a top-to-bottom, multimillion-dollar renovation. Without childcare resources, some families send their children back to be cared for by relatives—only to return at the age of five. Today's Paper, also known as the e-Edition, is an online replica of the printed newspaper. An interesting article from the Star Tribune, a local paper from the Twin Cities(where Cross-USA Ride will be this weekend!), discusses an initiative, Healthy Food Financing, that, if included in the new farm bill, could have huge impacts on communities everywhere.


And furthermore, This Wednesday, July 11th, the House Agriculture Committee plans to mark up its farm bill. One reason early-20th-century Americans ramped up their weekly baths to daily showers is that marketing companies capitalized on the insecurities of a new class of office drones working in close quarters. He and the estate’s owner, Tom Griffin, sat down to discuss the transaction at the Cock & Bull restaurant. How generational divisions have driven down voter turnout over the last century of American politics. Older citizens introduced young people to politics, helping to drive voter turnouts to their highest levels in U.S. The two women at the center of the novel, Effia and Esi, are half-sisters who wind up on vastly different paths.
As in, they hadn't cracked a paperback, fired up a Kindle, or even hit play on an audiobook while in the car.
But buried beneath it, I think there's an optimistic story to tell about American book culture. In 1978, Gallup found that 42 percent of adults had read 11 books or more in the past year (13 percent said they'd read more than 50!). In the midst of it, there was a lull and, feeling exhausted all of a sudden, I got up and left the living room.
Speaking before the throngs of celebrants who blocked the flow of traffic, Taiwan’s deputy director of the Ministry of the Interior praised the group that funded the renovation and presented them, for the 10th year straight, with the national “Excellent Religious Group” award. The panel finds itself deeply divided between Republicans, who are fighting for cuts to the food stamp program, which has doubled in costs over the past 4 years, and Democrats who strongly believe that any cuts to this program will result in people going hungry. The initiative, already passed by the Senate, would provide one-time grants and loans to a variety of healthful-food retailers, from full-service supermarkets to farmers markets, that want to set up, renovate or expand outlets in low-income urban or rural communities. But I’ve also been talking to his supporters and advisors, trying to understand how they see and hear the same things that I do, and draw such very different conclusions.
You think Donald Trump is screwing up because he keeps saying things that you find offensive or off-the-wall.
Griffin recalls that Trump was a hard-nosed negotiator, reluctant to give in on even the tiniest details.
But it was actually this tendency to slice up the electorate into unique generations that drove young people from politics in the first place.


One is captured during a battle between tribes, sold, and winds up on a slave ship bound for the U.S.
We were exchanging tense emails while I was at my office, and I began to feel the slow oozing onset of sleep, the same tiredness that came on when, as a child, I rode in the backseat of the car on the way home from some undesired trip. While the Senate passed its version of the five-year farm bill on a bipartisan vote last month, the future is less certain in the House…read on here! This initiative helps boost employment and maintain the vitality of our cities and counties.
Although the Senate cleared its bipartisan farm bill just last month, most Republicans(including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell) voted no.
What follows isn’t a transcription—it’s a synthesis of the conversations I’ve had, and the insights I’ve gleaned, presented in the voice of an imagined Trump supporter. But, as Michael D’Antonio writes in his recent biography of Trump, Never Enough, Griffin’s most vivid recollection of the evening pertains to the theatrics.
The other—separated from her village and married off to a British slaver—ends up living on top of the dungeons that hold her own kin and hundreds of others who would also become slaves. A sleepiness that overtakes the body slowly but surely and feels entirely outside of your control. To read more about this initiative and how its already seen success on smaller levels, click here! Even those who are optimistic about the passage of the bill are still worried that all the opposition, such as Speaker John Boehner’s distaste for farm subsidies, will be a huge obstacle.  Read this article for more news and reasons for opposition to the farm bill.
It was as if the golden-haired guest sitting across the table were an actor playing a part on the London stage. The novel traces the lineage of these women through the tales of their children, and their children’s children, and so on—up until the present day. I hadn’t meant to fall asleep; I just felt so fatigued in that moment that there was nothing else I could do.
