    **SNIP** So, what advice can our MPs offer their US counterparts? "Always believe in yourself," says Danielle Rowley, who was elected as MP for Midlothian last year, aged 27. "People will always have an idea of what politicians should be, and you're never going to fit into that, but they will believe in you for being you." Ms Rowley admits the advice is "dead cheesy" but stresses self-belief is hugely important in an often male-dominated arena. "The only skill you need is to be passionate about helping people and passionate about representing your area," she adds. "Everything else you can...

    The media loves firsts. It's obsessively promoting the first gay governor. The first two Muslim anti-Semitic women in the House, one of whom is accused of marrying her brother (the media obviously isn't mentioning that part), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest elected dimwit. It's oddly uninterested in the first Korean-American woman in the House. Well, not so oddly. Rep. Young Kim is a Republican. Kim, 55, would be the first Korean-American woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives if she defeats her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros for the open seat in California’s 39th Congressional District in Tuesday’s election....

But Ekrem, who didn’t want to risk giving his last name in a country where people are regularly prosecuted for ‘insulting’ public officials, also worries about the integrity of the vote. “In the last three to four years there have been a...

    he death of the American Dream may be killing many young white Americans. The death rates for young Americans increased substantially from 1999 to 2014, according to a recent report in The Lancet. Much of that increase was driven by the increase in mortality of white women aged 25 to 35. On average, 25-year old white women experienced an increased death rate of 3% per year from 1999 to 2014, according to the report. Twenty-five-year-old men had an increase annual mortality increase of 1.9%. All other ethnic groups, apart from Native Americans, experienced a decline in mortality rates. Bloomberg News...

    Ruling in the case of a Richmond teenager serving 50 years to life for a 2011 killing, the California Supreme Court said Thursday that youths serving potential life terms for murder are entitled to parole hearings within 25 years under a new state law. The court also ruled 6-1 that the teenager, Tyris Franklin, should have another hearing before his trial judge in Contra Costa County to allow witnesses to describe his mental state, lack of maturity and other factors that might have contributed to the crime. That evidence wasn’t allowed at Franklin’s sentencing hearing, because the 50-to-life term was...

Pearson told the network in an email that the GOP's stance on racial and gender disparity compelled him to change.
