Wednesday's Daily Brief

Wednesday, November 30, 2011
Arianna Huffington: Today marks the rollout of our latest local section, HuffPost Miami. Like generations of snowbirds before us, we are heading down to the Sunshine State -- and not just for a few months on South Beach. We're here to stay. Miami is, after all, one of the most dynamic and diverse cities in the world -- with nearly half of its residents born in another country. HuffPost Miami will, of course, bring you the stories and images that have long defined Miami in the popular imagination -- from airboats gliding through the Everglades to the clatter of dominoes on Calle Ocho to D-Wade and LeBron throwing it down on Biscayne. But we'll also dig deeper in an effort to tell the stories of all the people who make up this unique city -- one that is a combustible blend of the old and the new, the glittery and the grimy, the transient and the entrenched.

With official development assistance representing a much smaller share of the resources flowing into developing countries, we have to think differently about how we use it. We need to shift our approach and our thinking from aid to investment.
Robert Creamer: Does GOP Really Want to Increase Taxes on the Middle Class?
Bad enough that the "do-nothing Republican Congress" is doing everything it can to oppose President Obama's agenda to create jobs. Taking $1,500 out of the pockets of everyday Americans gets downright personal.
Alan Thicke: Boomerology 101: Gangster Father
I have a 14 yr-old son, as well as two grown sons from a previous litigation, and my line of work has appealed to my youngest in spite of my exhortations to pursue a more reliable future in dentistry: "Show biz can be fickle but gum disease is forever."
Dr. Michael J. Breus: Sleeping Late, Eating Late Leads to Gaining Weight
A message to night owls: There's news that your bedtime -- and those late-night snacks -- may be preventing you from dropping those stubborn extra pounds.
