World AIDS Day Marks 20th Anniversary Of Togetherness

Today, December 1, marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day, the day when individuals and organizations from around the world work together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. In 1988, AIDS was causing more deaths in the United States than there were in the Vietnam War and an estimated five to 10 million people were infected worldwide, according to the World AIDS Campaign. However, government, media and society, in general, were not giving AIDS the attention it needed. World AIDS Day began in 1988 when health ministers around the world met and agreed that there should be a day when all would come together to show the importance of AIDS and demonstrate solidarity for the cause. Since then, many positive changes have been made in the fight against AIDS, however much more needs to be done. Leadership is the theme for 2007 and 2008 World AIDS Day because it encourages leaders at all levels of society to stop AIDS. And leadership highlights the discrepancies between what has been promised and what has actually been done to halt the spread of the disease. Governments have to make good on promises. Communities must encourage leadership of its members. And individuals must have access to treatment, know their rights, stamp out the stigma and discrimination associated with AIDS, and must know and engage in methods of prevention against spreading the disease.

Hooray For Hillary!: Clinton Nominated For Secretary Of State

Earlier today, President-elect Barack Obama announced his nomination of Sen. Hillary Clinton for the position of Secretary of State. Sadly, the first thing I thought when she stepped up to the podium was that someone should have lowered the microphones because they blocked her face. The second thing I thought was that it’s pretty awesome that a woman can go from being First Lady to being selected for one of the top positions in our government. Sure, Hillary has always had her own agenda, and she wasn’t just deciding what the chef would cook for dinner when she lived in the White House with Bill, but even so, it’s nice to know that a woman can go from being known primarily as the wife of our country’s leader to being known as a leader in her own right, even if she doesn’t hold the country’s top spot.

    When we think of casseroles, the first thing that comes to mind is a green been monstrosity that an aunt used to force upon us at Thanksgiving. Just imagining it makes us ill.

    We See Chick Flicks: Four Christmases

    Starring Reese Witherspoon, Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Sissy Spacek, Robert Duvall, Tim McGraw, & Kristen Chenoweth

    Let me start by saying that I’m probably not the most biased reviewer, considering I’ve been dying to see this movie since it was cast. In terms of pure movie enjoyment and giggles, Reese Witherspoon is my favorite actress and Vince Vaughn is my favorite actor. Could I have been more excited to find out that they were in a rom-com together? Um, no. As I’d hoped, Reese was perfectly adorable as always and Vince Vaughn, playing himself, per usual, had me almost peeing myself from the beginning. Needless to say, this is the perfect post-Turkey Day movie. Light, fluffy, funny, and, oh hell, heartwarming. Full review after the jump… Keep reading »
