"Do you, like millions of other Floridians, suffer from electile dysfunction? By now you know the symptoms of ED — sudden bouts of drooling, an urge to crawl into a fetal position and a sense of entrapment after being exposed to the same hackneyed political commercial for …
Ebola's front lines
In the New Yorker, Richard Preston has a deeply reported and moving piece on the history of the Ebola virus, the people it's affected and the efforts to contain it through health measures and vaccines, including ZMapp, which is made from mouse-human antibodies that have been grown in …
It's hard to believe looking at this amazing picture of African migrants trying to enter the European enclave of Melilla, one of two Spanish cities on mainland Africa, but global inequality has actually been falling the past 20 years.
When Republicans seized control of the House four years ago, Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., took over the House Energy and Commerce Committee and compared his plans for President Barack Obama's health care law to strategy in the game of Jenga, in which players remove wooden blocks one by one from a tower …
DENVER — Drive around here for a few days and you can't shake it: Is the smell real or in my head?
One thing we've noticed about the midterms of 2014: There hasn't been a unifying theme. Candidates around the country have launched a grab bag of talking points in races for Senate, House and governor. In Florida, it's jobs and education. In Kentucky, it's coal. In Colorado, it's abortion and contraception.
Bright lights in North Dakota
This image, taken from NASA's views of the Earth at night, reveals a massive cluster of lights in what was until recently the desolate North Dakotan prairie. This is the location of the Bakken Shale, an oil-rich rock formation that stretches across parts of North Dakota, …
Several years ago, in the course of writing a book, I spent a season with the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.
Of all the rights associated with adulthood — the ability to purchase alcohol, rent cars, have sex — the one I most looked forward to when I was a child was voting.
When an editorial board recently asked Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about climate change, he said he wasn't a scientist. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Rick Scott, both Republicans, have said the same thing.
There's been a lot of tutting-tutting about the people who are overreacting to the Ebola virus. There was the lady who showed up at the airport in a homemade hazmat suit. There were the hundreds of parents in Mississippi who pulled their kids from school because the principal had traveled to Zambia, a country in …
Do you have the sneaking suspicion that if you asked Gov. Rick Scott to name the color of an orange he would answer with a rambling discourse on his Dickensesque childhood, accusations that Charlie Crist pals around with Boardwalk Empire's Nucky Thompson and the Castro brothers are terrorists?
Dear Editors at Travel + Leisure magazine,
I provide fishing access to Florida anglers and visitors from across the country as a charter captain in Clearwater. I have many customers who want to go fishing, and I want to be able to take them out as often as I can. Weather conditions wreak enough havoc on my business without unpredictable regulations that keep me …
America is the land of opportunity, just for some more than others.
I have taken pride over my 40-plus years as a photojournalist in offering dignity to subjects I photograph, especially those who are sick or in distress while in front of my camera.
Since 2009, the University of South Florida St. Petersburg's Department of Journalism and Media Studies has hosted dozens of African journalists each year through a national program named for Edward R. Murrow. But a few days ago, word went out that this year's program is canceled. The given reason: Ebola. The real …
All these photo scandals we're talking about? They aren't really about the nudie pics.
For the past year, living in Florida has meant having Gov. Rick Scott and Charlie Crist as constant and mostly unwanted companions.
