As you may recall, back in January, presumptive GOP nominee and smirking meat gargoyle Donald Trump, distressed at Fox News’ plans to continue employing anchor Megyn Kelly, bailed from the Fox debate in Des Moines, Iowa. To get a full measure of vindication, he staged a bit of cable television counter-programming, hosting a rally of his own, at which he claimed to have raised several million dollars for veterans. In the months that followed, campaign reporters have been captivated by an enduring mystery: To whom did that money go? How much money was raised in the first place?
Get close to the people affected by your work. Seek out perspectives different from your own. And work to bring others close with you. Know that history is not in a hurry, but that you can help speed it up. And recognize that while the journey will be long - and you will lose and lose again - it is the struggle itself that will define you.
It goes against the grain of Siliconiers, with the upcoming presidential primaries in California, when Donald Trump declares that he "will make America great by building walls." He is okay operating on the edge of legal boundaries, filing for bankruptcies numerous times without remorse, which we find not quite acceptable.
Erie, Pennsylvania-- not exactly a teeming metropolis, but not exactly a one horse town, either-- is considering closing all of its high schools. Yes, at a meeting last week, the district's leaders were asked to consider if it might be more doable to just send all of Erie's teenagers to neighboring school districts.
Women political leaders have passed more legislation and been able to bridge partisan divides more often than men. According to Bloomberg, women's willingness to spend time together outside the House and Senate chambers paves the way for policy-making efficacy.
Silicon Valley often thinks that it can live by a different set of rules than corporate America because it is developing world-changing innovations and start-ups need the freedom to innovate. Yes, we need to allow entrepreneurs to take risks and break some rules so that they can do their magic. But these rules cannot be ethical ones. The lines on ethics are usually clear as they were with Theranos and there can be no compromise.
There is no sense of honor or patriotism in the way the majority of Americans vote. It's just a game to most. They like the way their favorite candidate looks, they recognize them from the Celebrity Apprentice or the WWF star they idolized as a child, and they vote for them because of they're familiarity.
To those of you who think you're being helpful by "protecting" me and my fellow women, you're like a shark sitting in the lifeguard chair. I wasn't uncomfortable until you showed up at the pool and the only potential predator I see is you.
Our first job is to stop corporate lobbyists from convincing Congress to pass the TPP. Let your representatives know that trade agreements should be used to help us achieve our climate goals -- not take us in the opposite direction.

The biggest unexpected benefit from my gap year is that it gave me the time to figure out what I did not want my career to be. During college, I had my whole life planed out. My gap year helped me understand that my ultimate fulfilling career will probably not be so black and white.

With whispers of a Trump-Sanders debate growing on the internet, some are saying it could be the Debate of the Century -- a brief taste of the only alternative left to a dreary, historically nasty general election between two widely disliked politicians.
I spend a lot of time thinking about how employers can make better workplaces for women, but I also realize that it’s only half of the story. Individuals can also maximize our chances for success and help improve gender equality at work by changing our own behavior.
Leaving Istanbul, with the inaugural World Humanitarian Summit now behind us, I remain optimistic in humanity's shared future. But impact cannot be measured by what was said in Istanbul; it is what we do next that matters.
In the early months of the primary season, Donald Trump's personal reputation and his awkward attempts to bond with Christian conservatives persuaded political pundits that he'd be unlikely to attract the support of "values voters." The pundits were wrong.
Laugh. Give. Save a kid. Thursday, May 26 is Red Nose Day in the United States and it's all about lifting kids out of poverty both in the U.S. and abroad.
Saying that you have actually won more votes, more contests or more pledged delegates will not, in fact, make any of those things true. Even if you say it a lot, or in the form of angry tweets and Internet comments.

We need to see Trump's taxes for 2008, 2009, 2010. Supposedly, the audits on those returns are finished. He either did, or did not, receive amnesty if he used tax havens.
One can say what they want about Thomas but with his latest judicial insult, he's been a man of his word. Since that fateful day in 1991 when a deeply divided and even more deeply reluctant Senate confirmed him to the high court, Thomas vowed payback against those who ridiculed, reviled, and hounded him during the confirmation fight, and have relentlessly lambasted him since then.
Camus's broad appeal can be attributed to his elevation of ethics over politics, and individual decision-making over collective ideologies. By searching for meaning in the face of life's absurdity, his essays and novels provide a moral framework that can be applied to everyday situations.
We may not love it but, like shingles and pneumonia, this particular college will forever be with us. And so, a spoiler alert. At the end of this piece, I'm revealing who won the presidency in November, right down to the last electoral vote.
A soft thin insole placed in your heels will provide instant comfort and cushion for your feet and may be all you need.
The open presence of white nationalists in the Trump coalition would be very uncomfortable, but it could be potentially very valuable because it can help us bring the feeling of racial threat out in the open.
As the first US president to visit Hiroshima, ground zero, you will make history for your nation. But you will also make history for humanity.
Why the rising tide of support for socialism in recent years? One key factor was certainly a popular backlash against the growing economic instability and inequality in America fostered by brazen corporate greed, exploitation, and control of public policy.
When she got to high school, she was bullied during her freshman year. High school girls are the worst. They whispered she was a lesbian, and I figured they were right. I didn't care. She was my Maddy. That's all that mattered.
I am starting to get Facebook notifications in advance of my birthday. But this year, every time I log in to Facebook I am reminded that this marks the first time in all my 56 years that I will not hear my sister's voice on my birthday.
As a young woman battling serious illness, with multiple hidden medical devices, I have found there is a high incident rate of unnecessary, and hurtful comments by those assuming I am not sick.
