Meet The Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild Of Atlanta

From patchwork or crazy quilts to highly designed patterns, quilts can provide warmth and also tell a story. And, for black people, quilting has a powerful history in this genre of folk art. On the third Saturday of almost every month, a group of black women gathers in a room at a local library in Decatur to keep an age-old craft alive in the 21st century.

6 Things To Watch In The Nevada Caucuses

It's caucus day in Nevada! Today's election will feature the most diverse electorate yet in this Democratic presidential nominating contest. And it presents a challenge for each of the candidates in the race. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who finished second in Nevada in 2016, is the favorite in yet another race, as the more moderate candidates continue to duke it out. Here are six things to watch: 1. Does Sanders expand his base? Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane O'Meara Sanders lead supporters to an early voting location after a campaign event at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Tuesday. Patrick Semansky / AP National polls, like the most recent NPR/ PBS NewsHour /Marist poll have started to show Sanders expanding beyond his loyal base of young voters and progressives. But, so far, he's won only about a quarter of the vote in both Iowa and New Hampshire. The higher the percentages he starts receiving, the better the case he will have to get

HBO Max Wants To Know, How You Doin'? As It Teases 'Friends' Reunion

It could be called, the one that is finally friggin' happening. All six original cast members of the megahit sitcom Friends will come together for a reunion debuting in May, WarnerMedia announced Friday. "It's official, Friends fans! After 15 years, nine months, and innumerable fan requests from around the globe, we now have the 'brand-new information' you've been waiting for," a statement read. The reunion which is being described as "an untitled unscripted special" will debut on the media giant's new streaming service HBO Max, along with all 236 episodes of Friends , which debuted in 1994 on NBC. Unscripted is industry-speak for reality-TV or a documentary, which indicates this will not be a reboot of the scripted series. Since it went off the air in 2004, Friends has displayed tremendous staying power, connecting with audiences that weren't old enough to remember the show during its original run. The show centered around six friends, Rachel (Aniston), Monica (Cox), Phoebe (Kudrow),

Study Finds Century-old Combat Helmet Superior Shield Against Brain Trauma

In the weeks following Iran's Jan. 8 ballistic missile attack on the Ain al-Asad airbase in Iraq, 110 American service members deployed there were diagnosed with what has been the signature, albeit invisible, wound of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: traumatic brain injury caused by concussive blasts from exploding weapons. Even if they were all wearing combat helmets, they and more than 400,000 other U.S. troops diagnosed with TBI over the past two decades lacked equipment that was specifically designed to protect their brains from the blast of shock waves. That's because ever since the first modern combat helmet came out in 1915, these so-called "brain buckets" have been designed to protect heads not from invisible shock waves, but from shrapnel, bullets and other blunt physical objects. In fact, a recent study done by a team of Duke University researchers finds that the 105-year-old "Adrian" helmet used by the French army in World War One can provide better blast protection than

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Launches Political Group To Boost Progressive Candidates

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who gained an instant national profile when she toppled a top Democratic leader in 2018, has launched her own political action committee to boost challengers in 2020 congressional races. The move shows the 30-year-old New York freshman's intentions to continue battling with her party's establishment. Ocasio-Cortez unveiled the website for her group — dubbed " Courage to Change" — along with a slate of seven endorsements for female candidates who in some cases are competing against other Democrats backed by party campaign committees. Although her latest project showcases her willingness to clash with her own leadership, Ocasio-Cortez' name recognition and regular turns on national media outlets could help attract more money from people new to politics at a time when the 2020 presidential contest is the major focus for many regular party donors. Her new group's mission statement says it "seeks to reward challengers and incumbents who display political
