Women's Boat to Gaza Prepares a New Challenge to Israel's Blockade

women's Boaat to GazaWhen two dozen women sail from Barcelona on September 14, mounting the latest international challenge to Israel's naval blockade of the Palestinian Gaza Strip, their boats -- the Amal, or "hope," and Zaytouna, or "olive" -- will confront a seemingly intractable impasse.

Alex Baer: No Prisoners, No Apologies, No Rules

no regretsNo matter how many toys, gadgets, and gizmos we create, we're still batting zero in social evolution.  Mostly.  (We can talk about one exception, later on.)

Aly RaismanAly Raisman and Gabby Douglas weren’t seeking a told-you-so moment. The gold medals around their necks are satisfying enough, thank you.

But the gymnasts did hear the questions early in their comebacks, skepticism of trying for a second Olympics at their age.  Never mind that both are relatively young — Raisman is 22 and Douglas is 20. In gymnastics, and particularly in U.S. gymnastics, one Olympics is usually all the women get.

But the pair got not only a second Games but a second trip to the podium, becoming the first American gymnasts to be part of two gold-medal winning teams.
