My son and I recently attended indie rock trio BETTY's annual holiday show at City Winery, which included a powerful spoken word performance by feminist icon Gloria Steinem. Loyal fans and followers filled the New York City venue, and conversation was buzzing about the election, women's equality, and what the results meant for women's rights. By the time we left for the evening, my son and I had been deeply moved by a message from the show and its messengers: The future will be much more impacted by how women respond to the election results instead of the results themselves. Look at Each Other As we've heard President Obama do in recent days Steinem and BETTY song after song challenged us to rise, and acknowledge that the power is in the people. "Look at each other. Don't look up or around, look at each other," challenged Steinem. As millions of women prepare to march around the nation in solidarity with Women's March for Equality in Washington D.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova urged for the Kremlin to receive more information, in Moscow on Monday, after the state TV channel, RT, was temporarily blocked from posting anything but text to Facebook. Zakharova was speaking after RT was notified that it would be blocked until 22:55 local time (19:55 GMT) on Saturday, due to an alleged infringement of rights over a livestream of President Barack Obama’s final press conference, but the ban was lifted around 19:00 (16:00 GMT). The Foreign Ministry spokesperson recommended that "a list of all those violations that took place” should be made, adding that it “is necessary to wait for the official answers.” Zakharova recalled that her own Facebook account was once blocked “due to technical issues,” but after “the relevant changes were made, the post on the account was unblocked.

When Barack Obama became president, the United States was a wounded nation. His predecessor, George Bush, had taken the country to war against Iraq on false pretenses, the US was still fighting in Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden remained at large. But Obama came to power promising hope, a change from the status quo and an end to wars. He started on an unbelievable high, that sang out all around the world. He had promised to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, get out of Iraq, win the war in Afghanistan, reset relations with Moscow, improve relations with the Muslim world, and to finally, solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. There were successes, but they seemed to be overshadowed by the failures, and what he leaves is a polarised nation, split politically, economically and ideologically. And then there is Donald Trump. Like Obama, he was elected because people were desperate for change.

Assange made a promise it doesnt seem like he’s going to keep? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “The attorney for Julian Assange said President Obama's commutation of Chelsea Manning’s sentence does not meet the conditions of the WikiLeaks head's offer to be extradited to the United States if Manning were pardoned. Obama on Tuesday commuted Manning’s sentence for leaking classified information to WikiLeaks, leading many to wonder whether that meant Assange was ready to surrender to the Department of Justice. “Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning's sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought,” said Barry Pollack, Assange’s U.S.-based attorney, via email. “Mr.
