Scott Walker's Dog Allergy Shows He's Human After All

newrepublic.com — The New York Times' story Tuesday about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's "aversion to man's best friend" ends with a quote from Claire McLean, the founder and director of the Presidential Pet Museum. "Nobody," McLean says, "would let on if they didn't like dogs."

Tim Cook's Apple iWatch Launch Tweet Sleep-Shames America

newrepublic.com — On Monday morning, hours before his company's biggest event of the year, Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted the following: Got some extra rest for today's event. Slept in 'til 4:30.- Tim Cook (@tim_cook) March 9, 2015 This may seem innocent enough: that Cook is merely conveying his excitement over the launch of the Apple Watch.

Lifting the Embargo Won't Spoil Cuba Because It's Hell There Now

newrepublic.com — President Barack Obama on Wednesday announced that the U.S. is loosening travel and economic restrictions on Cuba and that the two nations would begin talks on reestablishing full diplomatic relations. These "more liberal travel restrictions won't allow for tourism," CNN reports, but that hasn't stopped Americans from proclaiming on Twitter-and in The New Republic's D.C.

Pope Francis on Dog Heaven: All God's Creatures Ascend in Afterlife

newrepublic.com — Pope Francis is cheating. In previous attempts to restore honor to Catholicism (if such honor ever existed) and to bring the Church into the 21st century (or into the 20th, at least), Francis has said that gays "have gifts and qualities to offer the Christian community" and declared that evolution and the Big Bang are not at odds with faith.

Zombies vs. Clowns: Which Is Scarier? A Debate.

newrepublic.com — Ryan Kearney: Earlier this month, I came across a Gawker post titled, " Is This the Scariest American Horror Story Scene Ever?" I had never watched a single second of the series, but the thumbnail image was of a soiled and bloody clown, his lips stretched wide to reveal a grotesque mouth of rotting, oversized teeth.

Overanalyzing a Nationals pitcher's contract in 'How Do You Know'

tbd.com — Owen Wilson plays the most overpaid pitcher of all time. How Do You Know is, by most accounts, a film you shouldn't watch even if you've just spent five years in a Mongolian village, without electricity or sex.

Video of Overcrowded Subway in Brazil Should Scare Soccer Fans

newrepublic.com — Brazilian daily Folha de S.Paulo on Wednesday posted this frightening video of an overcrowded Metro station in São Paulo, where bus drivers went on strike Tuesday to protest the terms of their union's deal with management. At least 300,000 commuters have been affected on the strike's second day, but probably none more than several women in this video.

Anthony Bourdain Profile: Parts Unknown Host Is the Celebrity He Hated

newrepublic.com — "Things are different now," Anthony Bourdain wrote in the preface to the paperback edition of his debut memoir, 2000's Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly , which became a hit largely thanks to its frank, populist advice to diners: Don't order fish on Mondays, don't order mussels ever, don't order meat well done, and avoid brunch altogether (especially Hollandaise, "a veritable petri dish of biohazards").

Wall Street Journal's Sochi Coverage Is Overwhelmingly Condescending

newrepublic.com — Last week, a day before the Winter Olympics began, The New Republic's Julia Ioffe took Western journalists to task for gleefully tweeting about the state of Sochi's hotel-the broken elevators, the urine-colored tap water, the knob-less doors-writing that "a lot of this complaining does smack of some pretty fantastic schadenfreude."
