“Nickel and Dimed” is the first of many books to highlight the very real experience of being working-poor in America. Sarah Smarsh’s “Heartland” and Stephanie Land’s “Maid” are groundbreaking first hand accounts of their lived experience. These books and their authors illuminate aspects of our nation that many would prefer remain shrouded in darkness: including systems of oppression and people - 37.2 million of them - living below the poverty line in America today. It also directly addresses the American can-do spirit, the “pick yourself up from your bootstraps” mentality and proves quite pointedly that it is a fallacy. Impossible and inconceivable for most.

Russia’s retreat from a key Ukrainian city over the weekend elicited outcry from an unlikely crowd – state-run media outlets that typically cast Moscow’s war in glowing terms. A series of embarrassing military losses in recent weeks has presented a challenge for prominent hosts of Russian news and political talk shows struggling to find ways to paint Ukraine's gains in a way that is still favorable to the Kremlin. Frustration with the battlefield setbacks has long been expressed in social media blogs run by nationalist pundits and pro-Kremlin analysts, and the volume grew after Ukraine's counteroffensive last month around Kharkiv in the northeast.
