The U.S. hospital ship Comfort is anchored off Puerto Rico, mostly empty  

The USNS Comfort, a floating state-of-the-art hospital, is anchored off the coast of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, with 250 hospital beds for patients in the U.S. territory unable be served by overcrowded hospitals and clinics lacking supplies and reliable electricity. Only 33 of those beds, or 13 percent, are filled, CNN reports, two week after the Comfort's arrival. The problem, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told CNN, is "the communication flow" between clinics, doctors, and Puerto Rico's Departmen...

America's opioid genocide  

There is a genocide going on in this country. And it is a judgment on this nation that we all but ignore it. We treat other lethal threats much more seriously. Many Americans are rightly concerned with the problem of seemingly unpredictable mass shootings carried out by terrorists or random murderous lunatics. It is easy to be cynical about solutions, but surely there is some reasonable middle ground to be sought between letting every American be his own Rambo and the systematic confiscation of

Welcome to the post-liberal world  

The presidency of Donald J. Trump is an American phenomenon. But it's not just an American phenomenon. It makes sense to see the rise of a right-wing cultural populist with authoritarian instincts as an outgrowth of American trends, from the long-term evolution of the Republican Party to the outsized influence of Fox News and talk radio rabble-rousers. But these American developments aren't happening in isolation. For complicated reasons, similar developments are happening in countries around t

Dan Brown is a very bad writer  

To say that Dan Brown's Origin is one of the worst "thrillers" ever published would not be accurate. Not because it is not appallingly, insultingly, groan-inducingly written — it is — but because it is not, in fact, a thriller. It would be hard to pinpoint the exact moment at which I made this discovery, but I would venture a guess that it was somewhere around chapter three. The clues, like the endless codes Brown's characters are doomed to chase fruitlessly around a version of Europe that ...

The subtle xenophobia of asking 'Where are you from?'  

On a recent walk through a local park, I came upon a fisherman. The way he gripped the pole, the way his hands quaked, I could tell he'd caught something sizable. A young boy abandoned the monkey bars on a nearby playground and approached the edge of the pond to get a closer look. A grandfather wandered over with his three grandchildren, and a middle aged white man wearing red shorts rose from a picnic bench to join our small group of spectators. The fisherman struggled to reel in the fish. I w

The Trump era's illusion of stability  

Do you ever get the feeling the world is holding its breath? When Barack Obama left office, the United States was embroiled in a number of ongoing conflicts. From the wars in Afghanistan and against ISIS and other Islamist terror groups, to the mostly frozen Korean conflict to the larger-scale geopolitical struggles with China, Russia, and Iran, the United States has numerous military and diplomatic commitments in a variety of theaters that could erupt into crisis and demand an American respons

Democrats keep waiting for the GOP to destroy itself. This is a huge mistake.  

Many Democrats watched last year's GOP presidential primaries with a combination of abject horror and secret, lurid satisfaction. The Republican Party, Democrats thought, might finally be hoisted on the petard of its own irresponsible rhetoric by nominating a clueless cable news junkie as their candidate. Donald Trump, many people (including me) believed, could not only lose the election badly, but also sink GOP candidates up and down the ballot and finally erase the GOP's congressional majorit

America's climate idiocy  

It's been another month of climate disasters. Puerto Rico remains in ruins, three weeks after being hit by the worst hurricane since 1928. Forty people and counting have died in the most deadly series of wildfires in California history — which is especially unusual for the northern part of the state. And on Monday, Ireland, of all places, was thrashed by a severe tropical storm. Against that backdrop, the American government isn't just failing to address the most immediate problems arising fr...

"And I'm not going to blame myself. I'll be honest: They are not getting the job done."

Scientists discover a new way of diagnosing breast cancer — using artificial intelligence  

Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are fighting to make breast cancer diagnosis more efficient — and they've turned to artificial intelligence to do so. Traditionally, women undergo regular mammograms, which provide images of the breasts that doctors use to identify any lesions. But while mammograms can categorize lesions as "high risk," they cannot do so with foolproof accuracy, and a needle biopsy must be performed to determine whether the tissue is in fact cancerous.

There are new developments in the "war on Trump," Jordan Klepper said Monday on The Opposition, his faux alt-right Daily Show spinoff.

"That's right, certification is for suckers," Klepper said, "a belief I hold to this day in spite of how many lifeguard jobs it cost me."

Because he ended the cost-sharing reductions (CSRs) to insurance companies, used to subsidize health care for millions of low-income customers — 70 percent of whom live in states Trump won — "there is no such thing as ObamaCare anymore," Trump said.
