Design issues delay Eisenhower memorial

By Peggy McGlone

With only five of its 12 members in attendance, the Eisenhower Memorial Commission could not resolve a major design decision Wednesday, forcing another delay in the controversial project.

The commissioners will vote privately on whether to consider two alternatives to the memorial to the World War II general and 34th president. They have until Sept. 24 to submit their votes, and at that time the commission will announce the result.

Occupy Wall Street Buys, Then Cancels, Student Debt

Some 40 million Americans collectively owe nearly $1.3 trillion on their student loans. On Wednesday, a small group of volunteers announced they helped reduce unpaid student bills by a smidgen, thanks to public donations and a desire to help Americans live debt-free.

Strike Debt, a group of anti-debt activists born out of the Occupy Wall Street movement, said it purchased $3.9 million in delinquent private student debt and immediately cancelled it.

The debt, which came in the form of unpaid tuition receivables from Everest College, a for-profit school operated by …read more

House Votes To Audit The Fed... And Deregulate Wall Street

WASHINGTON — The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to audit the Federal Reserve on Wednesday, a broadly bipartisan call for financial reform that accompanied two other bipartisan votes providing government perks to Wall Street on everything from higher mortgage fees to speculation in securities markets.

The votes underscore unique tensions among both Republicans and Democrats. All three bills garnered strong Republican majorities while essentially splitting Democrats down the middle.

“Today, the House passed the Federal Reserve Transparency Act,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) celebrated in a Vine video. “Finally, we’re gonna audit …read more

Scotland's Leading Historian Explains Why He Changed His Mind On Independence

Renowned historian Sir Tom Devine has been a prominent voice for the pro-independence campaign in the lead-up to Scotland’s big vote on Thursday. But the author and intellectual didn’t always hold this view.

Devine tells the WorldPost of his journey from being pro-Union to backing independence. Rejecting the referendum as merely a symptom of nationalist fervor, he explains how frustration with the status quo and a historical perspective got him to ‘Yes.’

What made you switch your mind on whether to vote “yes” or “no” in Thursday’s referendum?

The first thing was the enormous …read more

Republican Proposal For Labor Law Reform 'A Disgrace,' Says Labor Leader

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans say they have a plan to save U.S. labor law from partisanship and dysfunction. But their prescription for reform could make for even more gridlock — and critics say that’s the whole idea.

On the Senate floor Tuesday, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) unveiled a bill that would make sweeping changes at the National Labor Relations Board, the federal agency that enforces labor law on unions and employers. The proposal would permanently change the board’s makeup from five members — three of whom, per modern tradition, hail from the sitting president’s party — to a more …read more

Soccer Player Scores Astounding Goal After Letting Ball Touch Ground Only Once

Yes, the World Cup ended three months ago; and yes, this goal dates back still further to 1995. But after a video of the goal surfaced on Reddit on Wednesday, we had to look into the backstory. It’s that good.

The player responsible for this impressive juggling goal is Leonardo Nascimento de Araújo, a Brazilian who, in the course of his nearly two-decade career as a player, spent three seasons playing for Japan’s Kashima Antlers. According to the Japanese National Football League’s YouTube channel, Leonardo scored this goal during a game against the Yokohama Flugels …read more
