The USA is looking good to advance to the second round of the World Cup, but there are big problems ahead.
You don’t have to be a number cruncher of Nate Silver’s caliber to know that Monday was a good day for the United States national team. After being eliminated by Ghana at the last two World Cups, the U.S. defeated their biggest bogeymen 2–1 in thrilling fashion. The win came...

Looking good? We still have to get at least a point from the next two matches and 2 points realistically. And those games are against Portugal and Germany.....

Portugal is not what they were but still....

That Michael Jackson hologram on last night's Billboard Music Awards was weird, uncomfortable--WATCH: http://slate.me/1p6hKoO
The Billboard Music Awards promised that their show last night would have a “once in a lifetime experience” featuring the late Michael Jackson. They delivered, but, of course, “once in a lifetime experience” doesn’t necessarily mean enjoyable. Electing to go the 2Pac route, producers for the show resurrected the King of...

Title is just clickbait - creating drama so you click it to find what's wrong. That being said...

It was well done but the resolution was noticeably low. The design team obviously put in some serious work to it. The song is not amazing, but will likely be quite profitable.

BREAKING: Elite, entitled college students protest elite, entitled commencement speaker: http://slate.me/QJ1Bth #Developing
The year that I graduated from college, our university’s president—who had gained a reputation as a self-aggrandizing operator singlehandedly responsible for skyrocketing our tuition costs (and rewarding himself with the largest salary of any college president)—announced his retirement. Then, he announced that he would be delivering the commencement address at that...

Mad Men recap: Ginsberg put his WHAT in a box? http://slate.me/1g1akTq
Julia, Seth, Last week, Don Draper, drunk and longing for a Mets game, wandered into SC&P’s spanking new computer room and started slurring nonsense. This is one of the defining features of the SC&P work environment: It hides its employees’ issues, because everyone else is so sloppy and inappropriate it...

The South Korean coast guard says the captain of the Sewol, the ferry that sank with hundreds of currently missing passengers still aboard, “is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel,” ABC reports. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry...

Of course it's nice to be the critic as opposed to the accused. I would have left, too. I suspect most reading this would do the same.

When your life is in mortal danger and you know, realistically, that not everyone can be saved, you have to make hard but ultimately logical (and yes, selfish) decisions.

The media called her brusque and bitchy. But to young women at the New York Times, Jill Abramson was everything: http://slate.me/1oTphXM
“Every executive editor stands on the shoulders of others,” Jill Abramson told the New York Times newsroom when she was named the newspaper’s executive editor in September 2011. But not all shoulders are the same. At the meeting, Abramson credited over a dozen women who had paved her path to...

Louis CK has no idea what it's like to be a "fat girl." http://slate.me/1iOHBk9
Monday night’s episode of Louie showcased an extremely rare television archetype: the overweight cool girl. Funny, spunky, kind, aggressive, and brutally honest, Vanessa (Sarah Baker) arrived to give Louie— and us— a new perspective. Overweight characters are so infrequently showcased on television— or really in any popular media—that to hear...

For years Phineas Gage has been a neuroscience textbook myth. The truth is FAR more fascinating: http://slate.me/1fOcq9e
On Sept. 13, 1848, at around 4:30 p.m., the time of day when the mind might start wandering, a railroad foreman named Phineas Gage filled a drill hole with gunpowder and turned his head to check on his men. It was the last normal moment of his life. Other victims...
