Trump Supporters Move To Block Vote Recounts In 3 States 3.12.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
NEW YORK/WASHINGTON - Supporters of President-elect Donald Trump moved on Friday to maintain his narrow victories in three states, pursuing legal challenges aimed at halting the Green Party ’s requests for long-shot recounts of the presidential votes there. Lawsuits were pending in Michigan , Pennsylvania and Wisconsin , three “Rust Belt” states which bucked their history of supporting Democrats and gave Trump, a Republican, thin wins in the Nov. 8 election.

Kenvo Esquivel, Diane Fager

With the election of Donald Trump to the presidency this November, many on the left are rightfully frightened about what the next four years portend for the fight against climate change, when even the most basic environmental protections are now under threat. The sense of dread deepens everyday, as we get news of a new climate denier or oil executive being considered for a cabinet post. Many are preparing for years of long, defensive fights to preserve what policies we have won, both on environmental protection and on every other front.

2016 Was Amazing in One Respect 2.12.2016 Mother Jones
This year has been a rough one, characterized by political catastrophe and the deaths of great musicians: David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Sharon Jones, and more. One way I've coped is by cooking while listening to favorite songs from these fallen geniuses—and a bumper crop of great cookbooks has been a great comfort. I began 2016 in a kitchen rut. For years, I've been focused on getting great seasonal ingredients and doing as little to them as possible—and most of the cookbooks I've leaned on in recent years follow that solid but ultimately limiting strategy. My favorite cookbooks of 2016 are ones that shook me up, pushed me into new flavor palates and kitchen strategies. You can listen to me review my five favorites in this week's episode of Bite podcast and read about them below.   • Taste of Persia: A Cook's Travels Through Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, and Kurdistan, by Naomi Duguid The intrepid Naomi Duguid has written a fantastic guide to a grand cuisine that is little known to US eaters, mainly ...
