I'm raising funds for a Liberian NGO that is providing counselors in communities hard-hit by Ebola--aiding families who have lost loved ones (grief/trauma support) and helping survivors rebuild their lives. More importantly, they are training community members to equip them to provide better support for each other. It was founded by a social worker in Monrovia, run by volunteers, and could use your support. 
Renewed Energy Serving Humanity (RESH) is a Liberian nonprofit non-governmental organization (NGO) that is equipping community members to provide trauma and grief counseling and other psychosocial support in the wake of the Ebola epidemic. RESH has provided training to several communities, is coo...

I myself am in favor of the president of Chick-Fil-A being able to have this opinion without being vilified or blocked legally from running his business. I think Jon Stewart is very funny no matter what he talks about, and he took an interesting and thoughtful middle line here.

The way people walk appears to speak volumes about the way they think, so much so that changes in an older person’s gait appear to be an early indicator of cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Five studies presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver this month provide striking evidence that when a person’s walk gets slower or becomes more variable or less controlled, his cognitive function is also suffering.

Thinking skills like memory, planning activities or processing information decline almost in parallel with the ability to walk fluidly, these studies show.

In other words, the more trouble people have walking, the more trouble they have thinking.

“Changes in walking may predate actually observable cognitive changes in people who are on their way to developing dementia,” said Molly Wagster, chief of the National Institute on Aging’s behavioral and systems neuroscience branch. Experts said the studies could lead to developing a relatively simple tool that doctors could use to forecast, if not diagnose, possible Alzheimer’s disease.

You mean MS and oreos aren't the same thing? Gotta love that Dr. Grumpy.
A friend recently suggested I try Cleverbot. She figured that since my life has reached a point where I routinely talk to Siri, I might as well converse with other computers (and to think I started out chatting up Eliza on a TRS-80). After all, Cleverbot even has a picture of a brain on the site ...

From an excellent post-election analysis by Matt Taibbi today:
"The fact that so many Republicans this week think that all Hispanics care about is amnesty, all women want is abortions (and lots of them) and all teenagers want is to sit on their couches and smoke tons of weed legally, that tells you everything you need to know about the hopeless, anachronistic cluelessness of the modern Republican Party."

Actually I wouldn't compare Michael Moore to Limbaugh.
Then pick a different liberal bombast. The point is that listening to the extremes doesn't present a particularly accurate view of the party; that's not a change, that's always been the case, for Democrats or Republicans.
