The North Face Says, ‘Walls Are Meant for Climbing’

NORTH FACE’S NEW ASCENTS: Walls have all sorts of undertones, given the politically charged immigration debate. With its “Walls Are Meant for Climbing” initiative, The North Face is trying to get people to look at walls in a new way.
With this program and free climbing classes on Aug. 18’s Global Climbing Day, the company is trying to get people to look at walls as a way to unite people rather than divide them. The North Face is continuing its partnership with The Trust for Public Land to support the installation of public climbing walls in underserved communities. Last month, The North Face opened its first free, public bouldering wall in the Montbello Open Space Park near Denver. Last year’s Global Climbing Day featured 20,000 participants and this year’s goal is 100,000, according to Tom Herbst, global vice president of marketing at The North Face. “We want this day to be a reminder of the type of community we all want to live, work and play in — one that is inclusive, inspiring and unifying.”
The North Face has also signed up to sponsor Psicobloc, the 2018 Deep Water Solo Climbing Series, which starts this weekend in Park City, and continues Aug.

These 16 Great Videos Remind Us What It Meant To Be LGBTQ In 2016

2016 will be remembered as a particularly challenging year for many people, including those in the LGBTQ community.

The June 12 Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Florida and the controversy surrounding transgender “bathroom bills” in states like North Carolina left many queer people feeling vulnerable. Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s surprise election victory in November cast a grim shadow on the future of LGBTQ rights after a series of progressive strides under President Barack Obama

The year’s uncertainty was, of course, reflected on countless social media outlets. These 16 incredible videos ― which made a splash on Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets over the past year ― represent 12 months of LGBTQ trials and tribulations, as well as the community’s cheeky sense of humor. 

A few same-sex couples gave us life (and fitness) goals by organizing heartfelt proposals at the gym. An iconic “Mean Girls” scene got a hilarious, all-male redux in support of Hillary Clinton, and the bisexual community got the rock anthem it didn’t know it needed. LGBTQ allies got in on the fun, too: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Justin Bieber and Judy Garland’s daughter, Lorna Luft, helped us mourn the 49 Orlando victims in poignant ways.

Take a look back at 2016 with these 16 great videos.

DNC Chair Claims Weekend Debates Are Meant To ‘Maximize’ Attention For Candidates

On the eve of the third straight Democratic presidential primary debate scheduled on a weekend, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz defended her party’s debate schedule, saying it aimed to ”maximize” voters’ exposure to the candidates.

“I did my best to make sure, along with my staff and along with our debate partners, to come up with a schedule that we felt was going to allow for the — to maximize the opportunity for voters to see our candidates,” she told CNN’s Brian Stelter Sunday.

The Florida congresswoman has come under fire from members of her party for scheduling several debates on weekends, when fewer voters are likely to tune in. Critics, including candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, have argued that the schedule gives front-runner Hillary Clinton an advantage.

Sunday’s debate in Charleston, South Carolina, the last time the three Democrats will face off before the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 1, will air at 9 p.m. ET, following an NFL playoff game and preceding Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a federal holiday.

The last two Democratic debates were both held on Saturday evenings. In general, they have attracted significantly fewer viewers than the GOP debates.

Questioned by Stelter on Sunday, Wasserman Schultz claimed the disparity was due to the size of the GOP field.

She also argued that having more debates would “take away” voters’ chances to see the candidates in person at campaign events, even though Democrats will only have six debates in total. Meanwhile, Republicans are holding twice as many primary debates and have one more showdown scheduled before Iowa.

Citing the debate schedule, as well as her handling of other aspects of the Democratic primary, several progressive organizations have recently called on Wasserman Schultz to resign.

One such group, CREDO Action, posted a petition last week alleging that she has “pursued her own agenda at the expense of the progressive base and basic principles of fairness.”

“As DNC chair, you have repeatedly failed to act in the best interests of progressives and the Democratic Party,” the group wrote. ”You have lost the trust of grassroots progressives and Democrats. Please resign immediately.”
