Magazine Cover of the Week: National Journal’s ‘Battle for Your Brain’

unnamedIt’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw this week but didn’t have time to actually read.

This week, FishbowlDC presents the latest issue of National Journal and its exploration of “The Battle for Your Brain.”

In the upcoming issue, NJ’s Brian Resnick “lends his own brain to science as he investigates what makes us see the world through a red or blue lens, and how activists, politicians and scientists are working to get around it,” as previewed by the magazine.

For more, look to newsstands this weekend, for the piece online come Sunday, or in the teaser below.

Last night at the Cannon Caucus Room, the Animal Health Institute announced the winners of its Cutest Pets competition (for which FishbowlDC editor Nick Massella served as a judge) at AHI’s Pet Night on Capitol Hill. Winners hailed from the offices of Sen. Boxer, Rep. Mike Honda, and Sen. Warren and were “unveiled” by  Rep. Jeff Denham’s (R-CA) dog “Lily,” a 2013 winner.

Hundreds packed into the room for one of Capitol Hill’s favorite annual events and posed for pictures with celebrity pets including Marti, who plays “Sandy” in the upcoming remake of “Annie” and Orion, who plays “Buttercup” in “The Hunger Games” (Rumor has it Jennifer Lawrence actually likes the fluffy cat…and there are actually two of them. Kinda like the Olsen Twins.).

In attendance: Story Partner’s Trudi Boyd, Amos Snead, Lauren Culbertson, Jen Voss, and Elyse Petroni, Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV), Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Rep. Tim Bishop (D-NY), Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA), AHI’s Ron Phillips and Rich Carnevale.

Vice to Partner with OurTime to Push Voter Registration

logoVice and OurTime, a non-profit organization that drives Americans to vote, have partnered in the run up to the 2014 midterm elections, POLITICO’s Hadas Gold reports.

Included on Vice political coverage will be an embedded tool to assist Americans in registering to vote, with a goal of “250,000 young voters before the November elections,” Vice and OurTime told Gold.

“Millennials live and breathe online, and no two organizations understand that better than OurTime.org and VICE,” said OurTime.org co-founder Matthew Segal via POLITICO. “We are thrilled to partner with media company that reaches millions of young Americans each week and is committed to engaging them in the issues that matter most to our country. This is a tremendous day for OurTime.org’s voter registration efforts, as we look forward to not only meeting, but exceeding our goals for 2014.”

CNN’s ‘Hambycast’ Explores Hillary’s Media Circus

CNN’s “Hambycast” is back, and this time for Peter Hamby‘s trip to Iowa for the Harkin Steak Fry and the media circus that was Hillary Clinton’s visit to it.

Hamby documents the 200+ credentialed media’s obsession with Clinton’s appearance and more so, her potential 2016 run for president.

“One reporter got whacked in the head with the butt of a big television camera. Another photographer dramatically toppled off his ladder while straining to get a shot. It was a little absurd,” writes Hamby in an accompanying post. “When the Clintons approached the media zoo for question time, Bill Clinton leaned in and relished the scene. Hillary kept her distance.”

AP’s Steve Peoples Set to Cover 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates

profile_pic_400x400The Associated Press’ Steve Peoples will cover Republican candidates in the 2016 presidential election, Dylan Byers reported this morning.

Political editor David Scott wrote in a memo to staff, “For months during the last presidential campaign, Peoples was a fixture in the living rooms and coffee shops where the New Hampshire primary is won and lost…In recent months, even as he continued covering GOP contenders, Steve took it upon himself to keep the AP’s political reporting team organized and on point, leading story discussion meetings and organizing coverage of key moments of the off-campaign year. His assistance has been invaluable to me as I get up to speed in Washington.”
