8 lies we need to stop spreading about teenage motherhood

Nearly 6% of teenage women in the U.S. aged 15 to 19 years old become pregnant each year. While this may seem high to some, in fact it’s a record low. Citing the most recent statistics on teenage pregnancy available, a 2014 Guttmacher Institute report shows that in 2010, close to 615,000 teen pregnancies occurred, marking a 51% decline since 1990.

Bulletproof blankets, backpacks and whiteboards are not the best way to protest kids from shootings

Yes, apparently Americans are so worried about the next school shooting (which are happening on average once a week) that they feel the need to armor their children. Last week, reports of a company named ProTecht, which sells fold-out bulletproof blankets rated to resist pistol and shotgun rounds, quickly swept news outlets. Other businesses such as Maryland’s Hardwire, which is making bulletproof whiteboards, and BulletBlocker, with their bulletproof backpacks, are also making waves.

What The Powerpuff Girls did was generate a world of identifiable and progressive characters and plot lines — and then market it all as a children’s show.

You don’t see that in Jem or Josie and the Pussycats. Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup were as fallible, competent and hilarious as other characters were bland, beautiful and impossibly talented.

Demand for education, kind of like demand for porn, is pretty inelastic. Kids like me have been told our whole lives that higher education is the only way to be successful in America … Colleges today have zero incentive to lower tuition or make college more affordable. Either way, demand is high and the money will keep flowing. So why bother with thrift?

Obama Is About to Do Something No President Has Done in Over 30 Years

Obama is about to build an alliance with Iran: As they say, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. While U.S.-Iran relations may still be far from friendly, the nations could soon work together to address a common threat: the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

The radical Sunni insurgency — now the richest terrorist group in the world — has been making disturbing progress in taking over Iraq. And on Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry sat down with Yahoo News’ Katie Couric and indicated that the U.S. government would be willing to work together with Iran if they can stop ISIL, which he described as “an existential challenge to Iraq itself.”

Hillary Clinton says the one thing marijuana supporters have been waiting for

Though Hillary Clinton has not officially announced a presidential bid for 2016, it seems like she’s started courting the votes of a significant voting bloc: marijuana legalization supporters.
The topic came up during a CNN town hall event on Tuesday. Although Clinton limited her support to a “wait and see” approach, her comments marked a significant departure from her previous opposition to decriminalization — especially for someone who may be mulling a presidential run.

First, gravity will force the star to contract, raising the heat inside its core. Then it will expand into a bright red giant. Billions of years later, the dying Sun will start spitting out its outer layers, destroying Earth and any other rocky planets in its path. In a finale of power, the perishing star will suck in and destroy any nearby asteroids. Finally, the debris will settle, forming a delicate ring around the departed star.

Colorado is expected to make $134M in taxes and fees from marijuana this year 

Colorado’s cash crop is turning out to be even more lucrative than officials could have hoped.
