1981 “U.S. schools have chronically been in crisis,” Newsweek reported. As standards softened and budgets shrank, parents yanked their kids out of the public school system in growing numbers, but the underlying issue remained: “Too many students don’t want to learn, and too many teachers don’t know how to teach.” Almost four decades later, as we are enmeshed in debates about standardized testing, charter schools and vouchers, we are still struggling to find a solution. 1961 “The ultimate paradox of the trial of Adolf Eichmann—once chief of the Gestapo’s bureau of ‘Jewish affairs’—is that no punishment can fit his crime,” Newsweek wrote. His trial, the first to be completely televised, brought Nazi atrocities into the light of day. Hitler’s “Master of Death” was sentenced to death for his crimes. 1990 “A kind of animated ‘Father…

spare me the platitudes

@scandalsisters MY DAUGHTER, LEAH, GAVE BIRTH TO HER THIRD child and out of the blue was immediately diagnosed as having stage 4 breast cancer. She was beautiful and fun, and she loved her children and husband, Eric. She was an Emmy-winning producer for ESPN and had long, gorgeous red hair. For two years, she battled cancer and wrote a spirited blog that captured her humor, which surprisingly had not left her. Several thousand strangers were captivated by the precious gift of feisty fortitude that she gave to her readers. She died in 2010, at age 43. I still cry a lot and think of her every day. Sometimes, the grief overwhelms me. I remember holding her as a baby, then watching her do cartwheels on the beach, then enduring with parental acceptance the…

born to run

@LeeHabeeb LAST YEAR, AS TED CRUZ FACED a series of debates against his Democratic challenger, I was nervous. The Texas senator’s re-election race was getting increasingly tight, and as someone who has spent decades in conservative media, I tried to prepare him for the big fight. After watching from the wings, I learned this: Beto O’Rourke is the toughest candidate I have ever prepped against and one of the most impressive I’ve ever seen. The media might not recognize his skills, but voters do—and will in 2020. In fact, being underestimated may be one of his biggest advantages. For those who believe that he’s a lightweight, that his social media habits are not presidential material and that he doesn’t have enough experience or gravitas, I’m here to set you straight. What he managed…

paraguay: ideal investment conditions

Paraguay is one of Latin America’s fastest-growing economies, with the IMF estimating that its gross domestic product will grow by around 4 percent a year until at least 2023. The pillars of this stable economy are agriculture (it is one of the world’s top-ten beef, soya and corn exporters) and renewable energy. Now, President Mario Abdo Benítez is utilizing this natural wealth to build a more diversified and competitive economy. His strategies for this include developing the young population’s skills and employing technology to create a knowledge economy, introducing manufacturing and services clusters, as well as encouraging innovation and foreign investment. The well-connected and business-friendly country already offers attractions for investors. Not least, says Minister, Secretary General and Chief of the Civil Cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic of Paraguay Julio…

rock for choice

@ninaburleigh FOR MORE THAN A DECADE, Cecile Richards was the public face of the abortion rights movement. Wearing her trademark blue—and sometimes hot-pink—suits, the head of Planned Parenthood saw the national women’s health organization through a tumultuous time, from escalating death threats on abortion providers to increased protests of clinics to the viral controversy over fake videos that alleged her group profited from fetal remains. Then, last year, she stepped down. But her resignation, she tells Newsweek, is far from a retirement. Her latest book, Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out and Finding the Courage to Lead, serves as a guidebook for a new generation of feminist activists; the paperback edition—released in March—includes a nine-point “Women’s Declaration of Independence.” The mission to protect abortion rights, she says, is more urgent than ever.
