Elizabeth Warren's plan to end student debt is glorious. We can make it a reality

Thursday 09:54 GMT

This week, Elizabeth Warren, who is running for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, announced a proposal to cancel student debt for millions of people and make public college free.

If we want a real student debt jubilee to actually happen – to go from policy paper to reality – the grassroots will need to continue to push for it. But like every other progressive proposal now being touted by presidential hopefuls, from Medicare for All to the Green New Deal, the call for debt relief and free education first came from the grassroots.

Baltimore's acting mayor says he 'would hate to see' embattled mayor return after book scandals

Thursday 09:54 GMT

Acting Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young admitted he “would hate to see” embattled Mayor Catherine Pugh return to work after she received $500,000 from the University of Maryland Medical System in what critics have called a “self-dealing” book sale.

BALTIMORE MAYOR CATHERINE PUGH TAKES INDEFINITE LEAVE OF ABSENCE AMID BOOK CONTROVERSY. “I would hate to see it,” Young said during an interview with Baltimore's WYPR-FM radio, though he stopped short of calling for the scandal-ridden mayor to resign. The scandals stem from word that health care firm Kaiser Permanente paid $114,000 for roughly 20,000 copies of Pugh's self-published “Healthy Holly” children's book series between 2015 and 2018, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The Mueller War rages on

Thursday 09:54 GMT

If the report closed out the first stage of the Mueller War, it appears to have also launched the second stage — one in which members of Congress will attempt to reshape Mueller's investigation to reach the conclusions they expected.

Americans waited almost two years for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to finish his investigation into the 2016 presidential election. They could be forgiven for celebrating after the report's release, and especially in its finding that no evidence existed showing Americans facilitated Russian efforts to interfere with and "sow discord" during the election.

Oil prices pause surge to October highs as Saudi production weighed, U.S. supplies surprise to upside

Thursday 09:54 GMT

Oil prices eased Wednesday, pulling back from their highest levels since October, which had been achieved with three straight days of gains.

The Trump administration has said that other OPEC members such as Saudi Arabia and U.A.E. will ensure adequate oil supplies, but those countries were upset by lost business to the waivers in the first place and may not raise output preemptively, analysts have stressed.

I won a Pulitzer. Yet Trump wants to deport me because I'm undocumented

Thursday 09:54 GMT

In September 2017, I sat with my friends in a Ball State University library room trying to come to terms with the news that Donald Trump had just shut down the program that gives undocumented immigrants like me the legal right to work and live in the United States.

They understood that without the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (Daca) program, my future was suddenly up in the air. My friends, who are also students in the journalism department, knew my story and fell silent.

Thursday 08:03 GMT

Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s $1.25 trillion plan to cancel existing student loan debt and make college free has been slammed as a “sweeping bailout for the middle class” and a regressive giveaway to the wealthy at the expense of the poor. “Her latest big idea — to eliminate vast quantities of student debt and make public universities tuition-free — is not a sound idea,” wrote the Washington Post’ editorial board on Tuesday.

UK to allow Huawei to help build 5G

Thursday 08:59 GMT

He said the proposals still raised concerns, adding that 5G involved an "internet system that can genuinely connect everything, and therefore the distinction between non-core and core is much harder to make".

The government has given Chinese telecoms giant Huawei the go-ahead to supply equipment for the UK 5G data network despite senior ministers warning it poses a security risk. The US also wants its allies in the "Five Eyes" intelligence grouping - the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand - to exclude Huawei.

Alec Baldwin calls for action on climate change at UN event

Thursday 08:03 GMT

Actor Alec Baldwin said Tuesday that his passion about preserving the planet for future generations was sparked by meeting indigenous people who are guardians of their lands at the 2015 Paris conference that adopted the landmark agreement to tackle global warming.

ALEC BALDWIN IS AN 'ENTITLED CELEBRITY' WITH 'HISTORY OF VERBALLY AND PHYSICALLY MISTREATING OTHERS': LAWSUIT. He said he finds it "very, very unsettling" that indigenous people who understand better than anyone else the places where they live face strong opposition from those in power who want "to get rid of them by whatever means necessary" and gain control of natural resources on the land. Baldwin cited as examples the killings of indigenous activists in Peru and Brazil, and deforestation of the rainforests in the Amazon and Asia that are "the lungs of the planet."
