The focus on 401ks has destroyed the retirement for millions of Americans over the last generation.
August 27, 2016, 11:09 pm

Over the last generation there has been a shift from pensions to do it yourself 401k plans.  The idea was pitched during a time when the stock market was in a bull run and Wall Street was excited to open up additional streams of revenue.  But now a generation later, the results are rather clear.  […]

I wasn?t going to say anything actually bad about JustHost. But seriously ?

I wanted to avoid a disgruntled rant about JustHost, the company that (still for the time being) hosts the blog and is about to be deprived of its chance to host the new member site. It was enough to say JustHost was a bit slow, error-prone, and lacking in customer service. Enough to say that, since being acquired by some host-devouring conglomerate, it was getting a shocking number of bad reviews. I wanted to be discreet. Polite. Didn’t want to come across as some crazed former customer, brimming with self-righteousness and out for revenge. You know the type. The weirdo…

Meatless Recipes for Hard Times
August 27, 2016, 12:33 am

Meatless Recipes For Hard TimesThis morning I was looking through a recipe book that was written during the First World War like this one. It contained a number of meatless recipes that are designed to serve as a substitute when you were short of meat. One thing I like about these recipes is that they were not soy-based and with a little imagination, could be easily modified to fit the supplies that you have available.

Hominy Croquettes

  • 1-cup cooked hominy
  • ½-cup nuts
  • 1-tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1-teaspoon of salt
  • -teaspoon of pepper
  • 1-egg
  • 1-tablespoon melted fat

Mix and roll in dried breadcrumbs and bake in oven for 20 minutes

Meatless Sausage

  • 1 cup soaked and cooked peas, beans, lentil, or lima beans, your choice.

Hillary Clinton?s ?Humanitarian Interventionists? Prepare for War in Syria
August 26, 2016, 9:00 pm

Defense One, the online magazine published by the self-described ?neocon guy” David Bradley, has called for a no-fly zone in Syria. Evelyn N. Farkas, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, a NATO operation, writes the United States is ?morally complicit in the worsening humanitarian catastrophe that is Syria,? but not for the reason you might think. The United States is guilty because it has not intervened more directly. ?We should be ready to enforce [a no-fly zone] through military force and communicate this directly to the Russian government. We should seek U.N. Security Council approval, but be prepared to proceed without it.?

10 sci-fi books written by women of color to add to your reading list.
August 26, 2016, 3:10 pm

Female science fiction writers just swept the Hugo Awards.

<br>

Obviously, science fiction books by and about women of color exist.

But all too often, we don’t get to see them. Awards for literature overwhelmingly go to male authors who write about men or boys. Female writers of color face additional barriers in the literary world, especially in sci-fi, which tends to be dominated by male authors.

But at a ceremony earlier this week, something cool happened: The winners of the Hugo Awards, some of the most prestigious awards in science fiction, were announced, and the top four fiction awards were awarded to four women. Three of those winners were female writers of color.

In honor of these women, here are 10 recommendations for books about science fiction, fantasy, or speculative fiction by women of color:

1. “The Fifth Season” by N.K. Jemisin

We’ll start with the recent Hugo Award winners. If you like stories about collapsing civilizations and the apocalypse, you’ll enjoy “The Fifth Season,” which won the Hugo for best novel. (Fun fact: N.K. Jemisin is the cousin of comedian W. Kamau Bell!)

2. “Binti” by Nnedi Okorafor

The Hugo for best novella went to this story about a 16-year-old on a harrowing journey to get an education. It’s only 96 pages, so you can knock this one out on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

3. “Folding Beijing” by Hao Jingfang

The Hugo for best novelette goes to a story between 7,500 and 17,500 words. This year’s award went to Hao Jingfang, a Chinese writer, and her translator Ken Liu, for a story set in the Beijing of the future, where the city folds in on itself every day. “Folding Beijing” is also a commentary on the divisions between social classes. You can read the full novelette online.

Hao Jingfang and Ken Liu. Image via Charles Tan/YouTube.

4. “The Winged Histories” by Sofia Samatar

This novel by a Somali American author is about four women caught up in a rebellion. It’s riveting fantasy, especially if you like solid character development.

5. “Parable of the Sower” by Octavia Butler

OK, it’s not really fair to only put one Octavia Butler book on here because really you should read everything she’s ever written. But this book, the first volume of the “Earthseed” series, is a really good place to start.

6. “Ink” by Sabrina Vourvoulias

If you think our immigration system sometimes feels like a dystopia, you’ll want to read “Ink.” This speculative novel takes place in the U.S., and four central characters tell the story.

7. “The Island of Eternal Love” by Daína Chaviano

Chaviano takes the reader on a journey through time with this novel. Several complex plots thread through the book, which is the most translated Cuban novel in history.

8. “The Grass Dancer” by Susan Power

This novel, which centers on a Sioux reservation, weaves together mythicism and magical realism so skillfully that it’s hard to believe it was Susan Power’s first novel. But believe it ? she won the PEN Award for Best First Fiction after its publication in 1994.

9. “Love Is the Drug” by Alaya Dawn Johnson

This one’s for all the young-adult fiction lovers out there. The book won the Nebula Award for Best Young Adult Novel in 2015.

10. “Legend” by Marjorie Lu

If you like young-adult dystopian series like “The Hunger Games,” pick up “Legend” at the library. Once you’re hooked, you’ll be happy to know that CBS Films has acquired the film rights for the novel.

Listen, I could keep going ? there’s a whole universe (multiverse?) of science fiction written by women of color.

But if you’re still reading my words and not checking out these books, get out of here. Go read!

Americans should be concerned about the effect of Donald Trump’s campaign on kids, said Hillary Clinton in an Aug. 25 speech decrying what she sees as her opponent’s campaign of “prejudice and paranoia.” She told the story about a high school basketball game in Indiana, where home team fans taunted players from their heavily Hispanic rival school by holding up a large cutout of Trump’s head and chanting “build a wall.” “Next time you see Trump rant on television, think about all the children listening across America,” Clinton said. “Kids hear a lot more than we think. Parents and …

It can be difficult to flesh out policy positions on the campaign trail. Doing dozens of interviews a day doesn’t give one much time to explain various policies in detail especially when something’s new. With that lack of brevity, it’s even easier to take things out of context. This happened…
