    Door-Knocking in Iowa Taken to Another Level

    DES MOINES, Iowa — The polls are tight, the ads are flooding the airwaves, the harsh rhetoric is rising, and the surrogates are stumping hard all over the state. There is one “X-factor” that will put one of the Iowa Senate candidates over the top: Good, old-fashioned door-knocking — except, it’s not old-fashion anymore. Political door knocking is now a data-driven operation, making it as critical a piece of high tech campaign strategies as the endless fundraising solicitations delivered daily […]

    What’s Fishy About Your Shrimp?

    You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it and saute it, but one of America’s favorite seafoods — the humble shrimp — might not be what you think it is. Ocean conservation group Oceana released a study today showing that 30% of sold shrimp products are misrepresented, with 15% of the tested shrimp being straight-up mislabeled in production method (wild-caught vs. farm-raised) or species type. Oceana outlined the misrepresentation as such: “mislabeled (one species swapped out for another), […]

    Quarantined Nurse Goes for Bike Ride, Causes Controversy

    In any other circumstance, it would be the furthest thing from a headline: Maine nurse leaves home on bike. And yet Thursday, when Kaci Hickox and her boyfriend left their house in the tiny town of Fort Kent and pedaled along a long country road, law enforcement vehicles took off after her. About an hour later, they came back. A throng of journalists met her and photographed her. She went back into the house. Hickox has become the center of […]

    Is it 2016? Presidential Hopefuls Flood Iowa

    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — The Iowa caucuses are 16 months away, but judging from the way potential presidential candidates are visiting this state, you’d think they were next week. But White House hopefuls are taking advantage of the fact that next week is the first competitive Senate election here in decades. They’re coming to campaign with the candidates early and often. Hillary Clinton’s Wednesday with the Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley was about electing Bruce Braley. She talked almost exclusively […]

    Hillary Clinton Could End Up Alone in Iowa

    DES MOINES, Iowa — Imagine if Iowa held a caucus and nobody but Hillary Clinton showed up. Democrats of all stripes, including Clinton allies, have predicted for months that the former Secretary of State — who was campaigning for midterm candidates in Iowa on Wednesday — will face some kind challenge in the race for the Democratic nomination if she decides to run. The prospect of a Clinton campaign seems more likely with each passing day. But with the presidential […]

    Brittany Maynard says she hasn’t decided yet when she’ll end her life, but it’s a decision she’s still determined to make. “I still feel good enough and I still have enough joy and I still laugh and smile with my family and friends enough that it doesn’t seem like the right time right now,” Maynard says in a video released to CNN on Wednesday. “But it will come, because I feel myself getting sicker.

    Costco Isn’t the Only Store Closed on Thanksgiving Day

    Once upon a time, you could eat Thanksgiving dinner without worrying whether you might miss a doorbuster deal. But in the last couple of years, stores have been falling over each other to offer Black Friday sales on Thursday itself, opening their doors before many people are even done with their turkey. Now, some stores are saying enough. GameStop and Nordstrom joined Costco in deciding they will remain closed on Thursday and open for Black Friday on, well, Friday. Costco […]

    Why Ebola Patients Seem to be Recovering Faster

    For a disease that kills more than half of its victims abroad, Ebola in the United States is getting snuffed out at a remarkably fast rate. When Dr. Kent Brantly became the first U.S. patient with Ebola in August, he was hospitalized for 19 days. On Tuesday, when nurse Amber Vinson became the most recent American patient discharged, she was hospitalized for just 14 days. Her colleague, Nina Pham, also went home after just 14 days. “So the question is, […]

    Marco Rubio in Iowa: Quarantined Nurse is a ‘Hero’

    WILLIAMSBURG, Iowa — Florida Republican Senator and possible presidential hopeful Marco Rubio told CNN he believes that the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey is a “hero.” In an interview in Williamsburg, Iowa, Rubio said Kaci Hickox is “someone that went abroad and was willing to literally put her life on the line in the service of her fellow man.” Hickox is in a public spat with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie over her 65-hour mandatory quarantine after returning […]
