Timothy D. Cook, Apple’s chief executive, said he was “proud to be gay” in an essay published early Thursday, becoming by far the most prominent executive of a public company to come out. “Let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me,” Mr. Cook wrote in the essay, published by Bloomberg Businessweek. Mr. Cook, 53, has never spoken publicly about his sexual orientation in the many years he has worked in the spotlight at Apple. In his essay, Mr. Cook also noted that he had spent much

A senior official calling Netanyahu “chickenshit” shows the ugly side of the president and his team when it comes to the Jewish state. When it comes to Israel, President Obama has been Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. There is campaign Obama, who assures the Israelis he doesn’t bluff when it comes to stopping Iran’s nuclear program, lavishes the Jewish state with even more military assistance than his predecessor, and goes out of his way to let bygones be bygones. Then there is the other Obama. This is the one that instructs his secretary of state to travel to the Middle East to

So here’s the big symbolic “screw you, Chris Christie” press conference that I thought was going to happen yesterday. Christie wants mandatory precautionary quarantines of health-care workers returning from the hot zone, so Obama’s going to show him what a hysterical overreaction that is by appearing personally with some of those workers. Who, by the way, are currently still in the incubation period. “What about science?” wondered Noah on Twitter.(Snip for tweet) Explain this to me. Has the CDC now decided that transmission is impossible when someone is asymptomatic, regardless of how recent their contact with Ebola patients might be? If

Harvard University on Wednesday provided new proof that the Democrats are going to be broadsided in Tuesday’s national elections as millennial voters, in a shocking shift, now prefer a Republican-controlled Congress and give President Obama his second lowest grade ever. A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control.The unexpected anti-Democratic swing prompted a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter quizzing poll experts on a media conference call to IOP blurted out,

The nurse who was quarantined at a New Jersey hospital despite exhibiting no Ebola symptoms after arriving from West Africa, won´t follow the quarantine imposed by Maine officials, her attorney said on Tuesday night. Kaci Hickox insists that she is not under quarantine and has said she is seeking time to decompress at an undisclosed location in the state. ´Going forward she does not intend to abide by the quarantine imposed by Maine officials because she is not a risk to others,´ her attorney Steven Hyman said. ´She is asymptomatic and under all the protocols cannot be deemed a medical

Last week, we got information from a source in the Executive Office of the President that the EOP’s computer system had been down for, at that time, a week. Federal IT personnel evidently were having trouble identifying and fixing the problem that had brought the computer system down (although email and internet access had been restored), and EOP employees were instructed to say nothing about it. Scott followed up with posts here, here and here. He repeatedly emailed the White House press office, asking for information about the outage. The press office acknowledged receipt of his emails, but refused to

(Video) Senator Mary Landrieu said Thursday she thinks one of the reasons she is losing her campaign for re-election is that the state that voted her into office is sexist. Landrieu also said that President Obama is unpopular in her state because of his race. Speaking with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Landrieu said, “I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans.” Pointing to herself Landrieu continued, “It’s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place.” Landrieu oddly didn’t mention that her low

Attorneys for a nurse released from isolation in New Jersey after returning to the U.S. from West Africa say she will not comply with Maine health officials’ requirements that she remain under quarantine at home for 21 days. Kaci Hickox, who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone and shows no symptoms of the virus, agreed to refrain from going out in public for two days, said Steven Hyman of the New York law firm McLaughlin & Stern. She traveled to Maine on Monday by private car after her release from New Jersey, where she was isolated against her will in

NEW YORK — Apple CEO Tim Cook says he´s proud to be gay. The public declaration, in an essay written for Bloomberg Businessweek, makes Cook the highest-profile business CEO to come out as gay. Cook said that while he never denied his sexuality, he never publicly acknowledged it, either. The executive said that for years he´s been open with many people about his sexual orientation and that plenty of his Apple colleagues know he is gay.[Snip] "I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me," Cook wrote in the essay Thursday. The executive said that "being gay has given me a deeper understanding of what it

Secretary of State John Kerry argued Thursday that the United States cannot push its weight around in a changing and “complicated” world, and implied that the previous administration having done so had led to today’s security crisis in Iraq. In an appearance at the Washington Ideas Forum, Kerry said that although the Obama administration wanted to see a less sectarian government in Iraq – a prerequisite for tackling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) threat – it could not have simply demanded that former Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki be replaced. “The United States couldn’t just crash in and

Quinn Bradlee, 32, the son of Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn, gave a touching eulogy that had many in attendance dabbing their eyes. Ben Bradlee, who guided The Washington Post’s newsroom for nearly a quarter of a century, died at age 93 last week. The youngest Bradlee followed former Washington Post publisher Donald Graham; journalism legends Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward and Tom Brokaw; and his older brother Ben Bradlee Jr. The full transcript follows: My name is Quinn Bradlee. I am the son of Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn, and my full name is Josiah Quinn Crowninshield Bradlee. A lot

It´s not an iPhone announcement, but Apple CEO Tim Cook´s message is just as powerful.On Thursday, the 53-year-old executive came out publicly as a gay man in an essay published in Bloomberg Businessweek. He says he´s just now talking about to the media about this because his "desire for personal privacy has been holding [him] back.""While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven´t publicly acknowledged it either, until now," Cook writes. "So let me be clear: I´m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me." Cook credits his sexuality as making him a "more empathetic"
