CATCHING UP WITH MARK PENN -- New York magazine, “Breaking down campaign strategy with the former Clinton Svengali turned Microsoft attack dog,” by Reid Cherlin: “‘I was going to show you “Girlfriend,”’ Penn says as he roots around on the tablet in front of him, mumbling softly to himself. When he touches the play button, a winsome actress appears on the screen, standing in a bar. ‘Honestly, I wanted a phone with a better camera,’ she says, before enumerating the megapixel-specific features of a phone made by Nokia, the handset-maker that Microsoft is in the process of acquiring. ‘So I went with a Windows Phone … Maybe I just see things other people don’t.’ ‘You notice that it frames the choice that she’s making,’ Penn tells me, still looking at the screen. ‘She is, very politely, going through her decision and drawing a contrast. But she’s also supplying the facts in … [Read more...] about MARK PENN’S NEW LIFE — CLYDE HABERMAN ends 37-year run at N.Y.

Pope Francis arrives at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to celebrate a Mass for a crowd of 25,000 people on September 15, 2015, Washington D.C. Juan Herrero Tech & Science Climate Change Evangelicals Christianity Religion U.S. Congress John Muir was a fervent believer. Not just in science or conservation or the National Park Service, which he championed. The founder of the Sierra Club and father of American environmentalism also believed in God. “The forests of America, however slighted by man, must have been a great delight to God,” Muir wrote in his 1897 essay “The American Forests.” “[For centuries] God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand straining, leveling tempests and floods; but he cannot save them from fools.”This sort of religious language was “very much present in early conservation movements,” says Evan Berry, an associate professor at … [Read more...] about An Evangelical Movement Takes On Climate Change
With the end of "The Patty Duke Show" in 1966, which left her stereotyped as not one, but two squeaky-clean teenagers, Duke attempted to leap into adulthood in the 1967 melodrama "Valley of the Dolls," in which she played a showbiz hopeful who falls prey to drug addiction, a broken marriage and shattered dreams. The film, based on the best-selling Jacqueline Susann pulp novel, was critically slammed but a commercial smash. With her roles in the film "Billie," which was the first movie sold to network tv, and Neely O'Hara in the 1967 cult classic "Valley of the Dolls," Duke became known as the "Queen of TV Movies." Duke won three Emmys -- the first for "My Sweet Charlie" in 1970, the second for the mini-series "Captains and Kings" in 1977 and the third for the 1980 remake of "The Miracle Worker" in 1980. In the remake of "The Miracle Worker" Duke played Anne Sullivan instead of Helen Keller, who was played by "Little House on the Prairie" actress Melissa Gilbert.

Cover Stories Enlarge this image Kristen Uroda for NPR; Reference: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images Kristen Uroda for NPR; Reference: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images There was no such thing as Classic Rock in 1976 — the phrase, and the radio format it inspired, wouldn't come into common usage until the mid-1980s. But there was already some notion of a rock and roll canon, a list of key albums that FM listeners needed to have in their collection. At the start of 1976, Bob Seger had zero albums on that list. Twelve months later, he had two: Live Bullet, the double LP documenting some blistering hometown sets at Detroit's Cobo Hall, and Night Moves, his first platinum album, whose title single would peak at No. 4 as 1977 began. His next record, 1978's Stranger in Town, would go platinum within a month. I bought all three at once that year, because they were the ones Columbia House offered. But I knew there were others. As a budding, 13-year-old music … [Read more...] about Where Have All The Bob Seger Albums Gone?
