"New Yorkers already knew that Mayor Bill de Blasio was far less prosperous than his billionaire predecessor, Michael R. Bloomberg. But tax documents released on Tuesday, the filing deadline, revealed just how stark that contrast is.

Mr. de Blasio and his wife, Chirlane McCray, reported $165,047 in adjusted gross income for 2013, a combination of his pay as public advocate, a tax refund and $45 in interest.

The mayor had no book deals, either — unlike Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who found last year that writing a memoir can be more lucrative than governing New York. His newfound literary riches were disclosed on Tuesday as reporters inspected his tax returns as well."

The science behind the cold winter in the American southeast.
 
Hotlanta may be more like Icelanta right now, but plants are budding out in Alaska, California is a dust bowl, and England is under water. It's easy to forget that the local weather is not indicative of the global climate - that's why it's called global climate change. So, just because it's snowing in Georgia doesn't mean global warming is a hoax. And, if you're still skeptical, turn up the heat and read on:

Story
Tagline
I am originally from New York City. I was shaped by three major forces. As a child I was part of the voluntary integration of the City’s public schools beginning in the third grade in 1961. I experienced hostile and tolerant teachers as well as students. In high school I was repeatedly victimized by violence. I was the only Black student in my class from the third grade to high school graduation and the only Black student in my high school during my last two years. At Hunter College I encountered the Africana Studies Program which opened my eyes more fully to the oppression of Africans on the mother continent as well as the Americas. In addition I learned of the many great civilizations of Africa that predated Europe by many millennia. Jazz was the final force. It gave me a philosophy of life, an aesthetic through which I could assimilate all of my life experiences and a pedagogy for living my life and teaching others.
Introduction
"The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways—the point however is to change it,"-Karl Marx - "If you are neutral in situations of injustice you have chosen the side of the oppressor" -Desmond Tutu - "If you save one life you save all the world" -The Talmud - "Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" — Isaac Asimov - Practice is the preparation for transcendence. - Cecil Taylor " - Just by virtue of their ideological stance, liberals can tolerate difference, they can tolerate not knowing, wondering ‘it could be this, it could be that.’ They can tolerate someone saying, ‘you’ve got it wrong.’ Liberals are just more open to all of that. It’s less of a problem, it’s less of a concern. They’re much more open to compromise, more open to experience—what would otherwise be threatening to people would not be as threatening because of their ideological disposition." - Scott Eidelman,
