We finally have data proving that the problems affecting America's schools are caused by poverty and punitive government policies, not teachers' unions, says David Sirota. Now will we act on this evidence?

When the Magma Mine near Superior, Arizona closed unexpectedly in 1982, 1,400 miners were laid off. Now one of the world’s largest mining companies is set to open a new mine nearby, with mixed reactions from the town's inhabitants, as Kari Lydersen reports.

Some in the town are thrilled about the promise of jobs and economic stimulation. But Sylvia Barrett, one of the first women miners at the Magma Mine, is wary of plans for a massive new copper mine.

Since being evicted from parks across the country, the Occupy movement has become more mobile and gone "underground," says Allison Kilkenny, which brings advantages: "By dispersing from parks and splitting the movement into direct action cells, such as the one that just reclaimed a home in East New York, occupiers have forced police to try and hit multiple moving targets."

But does the new approach bring a greater risk of co-option?

Thirty minutes after the eviction deadline issued by Mayor Menino, Occupy Boston's camp at Dewey Square was the site of an impromptu wedding. "It appears there is something about an Occupy campsite that inspires young couples to take the plunge," says Allison Kilkenny.

Women using and working in technology and social media are doing remarkable things - so why does the iPhone 4's voice search app have such a gender problem?

"If you tell Siri you've been raped, she wouldn't tell you to go to a hospital, or to the police. If you tell Siri you want some Viagra, she knows where you could get it."

Sady Doyle investigates.

What's stopping the United States from taking serious steps to address the issue of obesity? Theo Anderson argues that the problem involves a fundamental aspect of American conservatism: the focus on individual willpower.

Have you skipped a visit to the doctor because it's still too expensive even with health insurance? Sadly that's just the "new normal" in America, says Roger Bybee. While the 2010 Affordable Care Act was supposed to relieve working Americans of the burdens of rising healthcare costs, instead they're being confronted with the emergence of a new stage in America’s downward slide on healthcare.

"On the night of Sunday, December 4, members of Occupy Chicago finally camped out overnight, and their camp is still standing at the time of writing. They had to go all the way to the border of the Woodlawn and Englewood neighborhoods on the south side to do it."

The group also has a surprising new ally in the form of Pastor Corey Brooks. Joe Macaré watched them set up camp at what some called a "watershed moment" for Chicago's occupiers.

In East New York and nearly two dozen states across America yesterday, the Occupy movement reclaimed foreclosed homes for needy families. Allison Kilkenny saw the action in NYC, and says it "marked a new stage in the evolution of OWS."
