Thursday's Daily Brief

Thursday, February 2, 2012
Arianna Huffington: Nearly a year ago, after the news broke that AOL was buying The Huffington Post -- to be precise, it broke at midnight on February 5th, just after the Packers won the Super Bowl -- I wrote that, for HuffPost, the merger would be like "stepping off a fast-moving train and onto a supersonic jet" -- or 1 + 1 = 11. Coming up on our one-year anniversary, a look at the numbers shows that our math was way off. It turns out that 1 + 1 actually equaled 44. And 54,000,000. And 1,200,000,000 (those figure are, respectively, the number of new verticals launched since the merger, the number of comments posted last year, and the number of page views we got in December 2011). But as amazing as this last year has been, we have even bigger plans moving ahead: more sections, more international editions, more original reporting, more ways of making the site -- and the stories we cover -- social.

Jennifer Garner: Let's Get to None in Four
Kids should never have to experience any kind of poverty in this country -- neither the more hopeful kind my mom experienced during the dustbowl depression, nor the kind the kids in West Virginia and Yucca face today. Let's make nearly one in four in poverty become none in four.
Rev. Al Sharpton: Silence Is Not an Option
You'd think Romney would be more careful in his approach towards serious subject matters, but somehow the self-proclaimed rich guy still manages to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Mark Ruffalo: What's in Your Right Pocket?
Compassion is within us innately as a people and as a nation. So put aside the rhetoric and ask yourself: how much more than enough do you need? Whatever that amount is, there is always a little bit more left over for those who don't have even close to enough.
Cecile Richards: On Planned Parenthood and Komen: What You Can Do
The news this week that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, after years of pressure from political groups, will end its support of lifesaving breast cancer screening at Planned Parenthood health centers comes as a blow to women across America.
