PERSPECTIVES: Empire of Deception

EMPIRE OF DECEPTION, by award-winning crime writer and investigative reporter Dean Jobb, is set at the dawn of the Roaring Twenties. It is a rollicking story of greed, financial corruption, dirty politics, over-the-top and under-the-radar deceit by a charming con man who kept a Ponzi scheme alive perhaps for longer than anyone else in history.

UTEP, the El Paso Symphony Orchestra, and EPISD are working together to produce a "Dvorak and America" Festival put together by New York writer/producer Joseph Horowitz. This is part of a high-profile initiative involving a host of other nationwide orchestras that form part of Horowitz’s Music Unwound consortium--a project heavily funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

The El Paso Community Foundation’s Jewel Box Series presents an intoxicating Valentine’s Day spectacular inspired by the Roman Fertility Festival. Lupercalia Uber Alles features dramatic vignettes written by Stella Maria Perry and Mackenzie Cochran, with dance choreography by Mindy Chanson, Artistic Director of the Pasithea Dance Co.

  It's February and it's time to start warming up our green thumbs.  In February, we should start planting our roses, planting cool-season annuals for a pop of color...start ordering seeds from seed catalogs...do some last minute pruning...and give a haircut to those tall ornamental grasses.

  James Fino is co-executive producer of the Oscar-nominated film "Anomalisa."  In this special online expanded interview, Fino talks about Anomalisa's tough journey from development to the screen while remaining strictky independent.  The story was based on a Charlie Kaufman radio play, and Fino explains why the story was tailor made for stop-motion animation.  The realistic animation in this movie created its own challenges, including trays full of individual facial features created with 3D printers.

The film is screening now at local theaters.

The Republican presidential candidates met tonight in Manchester, N.H. for the final debate before the first-in-the-nation primary on Tuesday, February 9.

Unlike the last Republican debate, Donald Trump, who came in second in the Iowa caucuses, decided to participate. He joined the winner of the Iowa caucuses, Ted Cruz, as well as Marco Rubio, who came in third. Trump and Rubio were only separated by one percentage point in the caucuses.

Saturday's GOP debate was the final one before Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. Here were five key moments:

1. That awkward start

One key thing has to happen before the debate starts: the candidates have to take the stage.

That proved more complicated than usual on Saturday night, as the ABC News Republican debate began with Ben Carson refusing to walk out to his podium, even after the moderators called his name.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has said he is a different kind of candidate running a different kind of campaign. He doesn't have a SuperPAC and he doesn't want one. One of the things his supporters say they like about him is Sanders isn't a typical politician.

In 2009, one of the founders of the online eyeglass maker Warby Parker approached management consultant Adam Grant about becoming an early investor. Grant says he declined because the company's founders weren't working at their startup full time; he also says it was the worst financial decision he's ever made.

There was a time when it felt like Keurig coffee pods were going to take over the world — or at least encircle it.

But now sales are on the decline, down some $60 million from last year.

The company has faced criticism because the individual coffee pods are not kind to the environment. But Venessa Wong with BuzzFeed says that's not the only factor that's contributed to the decline in sales.

Emily Martin created a state-by-state map of the gender wage gap in the United States. She calculated: Washington, D.C., has the smallest wage gap where women average nearly 90 cents to a man's dollar; Louisiana has the largest gap — women there earn just 65 percent of what men do.

Nationally, women earn an average 79 cents for every dollar men do. The gender wage gap is even wider for black and Hispanic women.

Folklore For Hipsters: Fairy Tales Before They Were Cool

Reading The Tale of Tales, Giambattisa Basile's 17th-century book of fairy stories, is both exhilarating and exhausting. If that sounds like a warning, it is. If that sounds like a promise, well, good news.

Game of Thrones may have killed off many major characters, but the manipulative, scheming Queen Cersei is still standing. She's played by Lena Headey, who we've invited to play a game called "You win and you die."

Since The Game of Thrones doesn't sound particularly fun to play, we'll ask three questions about even worse games.

Five pages into A Decent Ride, Irvine Welsh's newest novel, he makes a mention of Sick Boy — one of the main characters from his popular 1993 debut Trainspotting. That doesn't mean A Decent Ride is a sequel to Trainspotting (Welsh already did that with 2002's Porno). Instead, it's yet another visit to Welsh's shared universe of unsavory characters, a universe that sprawls from novel to novel while remaining mostly contained within his hometown of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Not that long ago, being a woman in the workplace was different. Just watch any episode of Mad Men.

That was just the way things were back then. It wasn't until 1986 that the Supreme Court acknowledged that there's something called sexual harassment and it's a violation of federal civil rights law.

"Irresponsible," "senseless," "deplorable," "destabilizing," "totally unacceptable."

North Korea's launch of a long-range rocket has filled the isolated nation with pride — and sparked fierce censure from the rest of the world.

As we reported yesterday, the launch on Sunday morning local time arrives just a month after a nuclear test that had already raised tensions in the area:

Primary season has officially begun. And as the presidential candidates campaign ahead of Tuesday's New Hampshire primary, both Republicans and Democrats are making big arguments in response to some big questions about their party's future.

Is there such a thing as an "establishment lane" that can win the GOP contest? Can a Democrat be both moderate and a progressive? Is it better to be pragmatic or idealistic?
