The cosmos beckons for Snoopy onscreen and in real life
11/17/2021 7:31:59 PM

By Mark Kennedy   NEW YORK (AP)—A new rocket designed to launch humans to the moon, Mars and beyond will launch next year from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. On board, will be a familiar fuzzy figure—Snoopy. A 5-ounce plush toy version of the daydreaming beagle—wearing a space suit designed according to NASA's strict specifications—has an important job for the Artemis I unmanned mission. NASA uses stuffed animals on flights because when the little guys start to float, it indicates that the spacecraft has entered space's zero gravity....

‘Rust’ tragedy, labor climate frame Hollywood contract vote
11/17/2021 7:19:55 PM

By Lynn Elber   LOS ANGELES (AP)—In weighing his vote on a proposed union contract with Hollywood producers, veteran stagehand Matthew “Doc” Brashear looked closely at the agreement and beyond, to the now-closed New Mexico film set where a cinematographer died. For crew member Brandy Tannahill, the fatal “Rust” shooting of Halyna Hutchins and the resurgence of labor actions, such as the strikes at John Deere and Kellogg, are bolstering her decision. When voting starts Friday on a tentative three-year agreement reached by the International...

I was just thinking, or was I really thinking?
11/17/2021 7:14:12 PM

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Thinking has not really been my strong suit. Not that I don’t do some kind of thinking, but my thinking never gets me ahead of anything or anyone. In fact, I’m not sure if I really do think. I wouldn’t know what to do with thinking. Many people give a lot of credit to what they’re thinking. I suppose there is a place for real serious critical thinking, but it has never arisen in any of my situations that I can think of right now. One day this past week, we had to go across town for an errand. As we were traveling, I...

Investing in our other infrastructure— our children and families.
11/17/2021 6:58:35 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Last week Congress passed a bipartisan infrastructure bill, providing long-awaited vital investments in buildings, roads, bridges, utilities, broadband, climate change mitigation, and more. These investments will be a key foundation for our nation’s future economic growth. But in order to build a strong foundation for our economy, we also must invest in a strong foundation for all our children to be able to succeed in school and life and contribute to our nation’s long-term success. Congress must follow...

Federal COVID shot opt-out not as clear as Democrats claim
11/11/2021 10:23:14 PM

By John O’Connor   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP)—Lawsuits against Illinois over required COVID-19 vaccination were accumulating and the reason was clear: the legal claims leverage of the state's Health Care Right of Conscience Act in stating religious objections to the shot and in appealing sanctions, including losing a job, that come with refusal. Democrats who control the General Assembly went to work last month to change that, but publicly sidestepped the lawsuits as the reason. They said their action had nothing to do with curtailing religious freedom. Anyone...

Nationwide polio eradication campaign starts in Afghanistan
11/11/2021 10:21:02 PM

ISLAMABAD (AP)—The Taliban-run Afghan public health ministry announced Sunday the start of a four-day nationwide polio vaccination campaign aimed at inoculating children under age 5. For the past three years before taking control of Afghanistan, the Taliban had barred U.N.-organized vaccination teams from doing door-to-door campaigns in parts of the country under their control. The group apparently was suspicious the team members could be spies for the previous government or the West. Because of the ban and ongoing fighting, some 3.3 million children over the past three years...

By Dr. James L. Snyder   Usually, I am not easily offended, nor do I easily lose my temper. I did lose my temper when I was six years old but have not been able to find it since. Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is trying to find it but so far, she has not found it. Don’t let this out, but the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage can get ticked off very quickly, particularly with bugs, lizards, and stuff like that, not to mention snakes. Once when on vacation and stayed in a motel, a frog was under her pillow. I didn’t know my wife could dance and sing at...

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   With Congress expected to vote on the Build Back Better Act imminently, I pray God will help our leaders and all of us find the will, courage, and common sense to end poverty in our time, beginning right now with passage of this transformative package for children and families.   God help us to end poverty in our time. The poverty of having a child with too little to eat and no place to sleep, no air, sunlight and space to breathe, bask, and grow. The poverty of watching your child suffer and get...

11/3/2021 6:44:42 PM

By Tom Hays   NEW YORK (AP)—U.S. authorities returned about 250 antiquities to India on Thursday in a long-running investigation of a stolen art scheme. The items, worth an estimated $15 million, were handed over during a ceremony at the Indian Consulate in New York City.

The ceremony stems from a sprawling probe by the Manhattan district attorney's office and the Homeland Security Investigations arm of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The investigation has focused on...

CLEVELAND (AP)—Jay-Z's added another title to a resume that includes rapper, songwriter, Grammy winner, billionaire business mogul, and global icon—Hall of Famer.
