First lady Michelle Obama told Oberlin College graduates on Monday she was "moved" to receive an honorary degree from the school, since it was the "first college in America to officially embrace the admission of black students, and the first co-ed school to grand bachelor´s degrees to women." "I should be here today," Mrs. Obama said in her opening remarks. "Oberlin is likely the only college in America that I could have attended nearly two centuries ago, and I am honored to be part of the extraordinary legacy of this great institution." Mrs. Obama said she agreed to speak at

Michelle Obama urged another class of college graduates Monday to work aggressively to change American society and not be deterred by noisy or obstructionist opposition. The 51-year-old first lady spent her Memorial Day not with her husband honoring the fallen military at Arlington National Cemetery, but urging graduates at Ohio´s Oberlin College to become persistent, determined agents of change in their communities. She warned them about the evils of American society outside academia, requiring constant change, not support. And she urged them to "shape the revolutions of your time" by becoming community

Where´s the red, white, and blue?! Lena Dunham often gets attention for stripping down on her HBO smash Girls, but this time the actress is turning heads with her sexy green lingerie.

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Cynthia Tucker criticized Dr. Ben Carson for his conservative political and religious views, referring to the retired pediatric neurosurgeon and 2016 presidential candidate as “the GOP’s latest black mascot, a court jester, a minstrel show.” Carson, who was raised in a poor, single-parent household in inner-city Detroit, became the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland at age 33. He made medical history when he became the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins attached at the head. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by former President George W. Bush in

Way back in the 20th Century, my sister and I went to the Cannes Film Festival on my first trip to Europe. At that time, the established female stars were glamorous and classy but the festival coverage itself by the global press always managed to spotlight the trashy and exhibitionist antics of an unknown starlet dressed in nearly nude outfits. On May 4th, at the Metropolitan Museum´s 2015 Gala, it was the established celebrities that wore even trashier, albeit very expensive, attire. I use the word celebrities instead of stars because Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, wearers of the barely

"Today, two judges of the Fifth Circuit chose to misinterpret the facts and the law". The Obama Administration said it is weighing its options in the wake of an appeals court ruling that kept a block on the president’s executive action on immigration. On Tuesday, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to lift an injunction of the president’s action to grant millions of undocumented immigrants temporary reprieve from deportation. Texas and twenty-five other states are suing the Obama administration over the president’s immigration plan, and a federal judge in Texas blocked the action temporarily in February. The appeals court

Thieves managed to steal information on thousands of taxpayers from the IRS, Commissioner John Koskinen said Tuesday — though he insisted the breach didn’t affect average taxpayers and the information they file in their annual returns. “This is not a security breach. Our basic information is secure,” Mr. Koskinen insisted in a call with reporters to discuss the theft, which he said came from online access by fraudsters, who he described as part of an organized crime syndicate. The IRS is sending out notices to those they have determined were affected by the breach, and has opened a criminal investigation into the

NEW YORK— Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, is working on a memoir. The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he planned to tell both his personal story, including overcoming polio as a child in Alabama, and the story of his long career in public life. "It´s hard for me to believe it´s been four decades in politics," McConnell, 73, said during a telephone interview, adding that the book "gives you an opportunity to convey the lessons you´ve learned over the years." Known as one of Washington´s savviest politicians, McConnell has given his book the working title,

Even by the standards of arms deals between the United States and Saudi Arabia, this one was enormous. A consortium of American defense contractors led by Boeing would deliver $29 billion worth of advanced fighter jets to the United States´ oil-rich ally in the Middle East. Israeli officials were agitated, reportedly complaining to the Obama administration that this substantial enhancement to Saudi air power risked disrupting the region´s fragile balance of power. The deal appeared to collide with the State Department’s documented concerns about the repressive policies of the Saudi royal family. But now, in late 2011, Hillary Clinton’s State Department was

We have followed the performance of Marie Harf as a spokesman for the Obama administration foreign policy at the State Department. Harf gives the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. She is a walking self-parody. As such, she presents a novel use of expressive form. Now comes word that Harf is being promoted to Senior Advisor for Strategic Communications to Secretary of State John Kerry. Like a helium filled balloon, Harf ascends. In her new position Harf will focus on negotiations between the U.S. and Iran on nuclear weapons. It

A federal appeals court upheld an injunction against President Obama’s new deportation in a rulingTuesday that marks the second major legal setback for an administration that had insisted its actions were legal. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama’s amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written. “The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction,” the judges wrote in the majority opinion. Mr. Obama had acted in November to try to grant tentative legal status and work permits to as

BARCELONA - Responding to climate change in the next 15 years is the world´s "mega development project", given the need to invest trillions of dollars in infrastructure, creating jobs and economic stability, the United Nations´ top climate change official said on Tuesday. (Snip) "We are going to do it, because frankly we don´t have any other option," she said. Decarbonization refers to shifting from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, and improving energy efficiency, in order to cut planet-warming emissions to a net zero. Rachel Kyte, the World Bank´s special envoy for climate change, said to decarbonize economies, "we will
