The Sanders campaign is mounting a last ditch effort to persuade most of the 712 super-delegates (541 of whom have already declared for Clinton) to reconsider, on the premise that Sanders has the better shot at beating Trump. They're increasingly in a go-for-broke mood. Many Sanders supporters are far more militant than Sanders himself, and some are openly expressing the hope that Clinton will be indicted for some aspect of the email dust up. That seems highly improbable. However, Clinton has been unable to catch a break. The theme of her campaign has been experience and competence, but her improper use of a private email server suggested neither. It gives Trump a huge opening to challenge her honesty and probably signals a further decline in voter trust in Clinton.
Military commanders must think of sleep as a weapon that they can deploy. This means that the decision maker must be afforded the opportunity to gain sufficient rest. Rested commanders are the best commanders.
Voters have the right to know if Donald dodged taxes every year, just like he did in 1978 and 1979, while he routinely used public services like bankruptcy court that other taxpayers faithfully paid for with their IRS payments.
Our president just got back from Hiroshima, Japan, the site where we dropped the big one -- the only country to use it... so far. It struck up an important conversation with my kids.
As the nation once again honors American war dead on Memorial Day, instead of spouting the usual nationalistic platitudes that that U.S. soldiers fought to keep the country "safe and free," perhaps we should analyze whether that is really true.
If you are between the ages of 50 and 74, your mortality rates are 30 percent for a man and 20 percent for women. HLI's goal is to make healthcare proactive, preventative, and personalized -- predicting what disease you are likely to develop, and helping you prevent it in the first place.
This May, we celebrate Older Americans Month by honoring our seniors. But our obligations to them and their caretakers must be enduring throughout the year. Hillary Clinton's record proves she will never roll the dice on our seniors' futures.
Some of these habits may seem minor, but they add up. Most amount to a personal choice between immediate pleasures and lasting ones. After all, the worst habit is losing track of what really matters to you.
Human Rights Now is not a slogan. It is a necessity for a democratic leader and a Nobel winner. The world is asking Aung San Suu Kyi to address this issue with compassion and decency.
Donald Trump and his reckless refusal to disavow using nuclear weapons is a threat to all life on earth. It's that simple. Ask yourself, would there be any more Memorial Days if no one is left to mourn? No.
This weekend, as we reflect on remembrance and those who won't return from conflict, it is helpful to reflect on conflict itself and why we even have it. Resource scarcity is at the root of global conflict.
It seemed like Memorial Day would never come, but the unofficial start of summer is finally here! Celebrate with a foolproof feast. Whether your hosting a backyard BBQ or taking a dish to a potluck, these grilling recipes, summery salads and simple sweets have you covered.
Let's get this straight: The bureaucrats "in charge" of security knew Clinton was using a private email server since 2001 -- and they sent her email regularly to it between 2009 and 2013 -- but they wouldn't have given her permission to do that?
If getting yourself to the gym is, itself, a workout, or you don't have money for a membership, take heart! Here are 5 exercises you can do on your own to firm your muscles and tone your body that don't require a gym:
Today in a rally in Fresno, California, Donald Trump made a few comments about water. They were all inanities, parroting old Republican mis-statements and misrepresentations about the causes of California's water challenges.
With one week left before California's primary, many eyes will begin turning towards Schwarzenegger to see if his eagerness to address climate change outweighs his allegiance to the Republican Party.
There's nothing really that special about these letters to my dad - and that's their value. They are the typical sentiments of American dogfaces in Europe in World War II. Men who saw the destruction of Germany and the deaths of their friends. They had no illusions about war, and they didn't spout patriotic platitudes.
Instead of always trying new things, or doing things that are not essential, try to keep things simple. Focus on your core competencies, and improve that. No gimmicks, just real work.
I've traveled around the world with my grandfather's Ex-Prisoner of War hat with me, since he passed away last August. I know how proud he was to wear that hat, so it makes me proud to not only honor him as a POW/MIA, but to honor one of the last things he said to me.
The never-ending, House-controlled GOP investigating committees have not found and will not find any new improprieties in the email flap. But that won't stop yet another committee from trying mightily to manufacture them.
This year in Florida, a third grader can have great grades, the recommendation of her teacher and principal, and the admiration of her peers -- but if she didn't take the BS Test, she will fail third grade.
Donald Trump is a really tough guy. He's so tough that he chickened out of debating a 74-year old socialist from Vermont. Tough guy Donald is so tough that after appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel show and challenging Bernie Sanders to debate, he chickened out when Bernie replied "Game on."
Responding to voters deeply felt needs, Sanders has given birth to a true progressive movement that, if understood, embraced, and, most importantly, sustained, can, as he has noted, bring revolutionary change to America. It is a phenomenon.
In early April 1945, my father was packed into a train with 2,500 other prisoners from Bergen-Belsen as the Nazis insanely tried to keep British and American troops from rescuing them. The train was made up of 45 cars with their doors sealed shut; the crowding was horrific and of course there was no food or water.
From Venezuela to Brazil to Argentina, the political left is crumbling, raising real questions about the durability of South America's so-called "Pink Tide." In Caracas, the future of Chávez protégé Nicolás Maduro remains unclear amidst plunging world oil prices, rampant inflation, power shortages and scarcity of basic goods.
There is a lot at stake here for the major U.S. foreign policy institutions, which include the 17 intelligence agencies, State Department, Pentagon, White House National Security Council, and foreign policy committees of the Senate and House.
If people abhor rape and would like to make the world a safer place in general, a good simple first step is listening to women when they say that street harassment is a problem.
Last year's Paris Climate Agreement at COP21 marked a paradigm shift in the international response to climate change. Few can deny that COP21, thanks in part to Europe's leadership, achieved the first multilateral climate agreement since the Kyoto Protocol.
Now is the time for leadership, change, improvement, growth and the acceptance of new challenges as they continue to emerge. The differentiator is whether you, your workforce and your constituents are prepared with the skills and mindset to meet these challenges.
I'm sure it's difficult to keep an eye on your child 24/7. But in each of these cases, had a parent been supervising, not to mention not doing anything incredibly stupid like standing the child up on a railing or other precarious spot, these incidents would never have occurred.
It hit me, as I sat in my hot driver's seat on a sunny afternoon of errands with my children that, at 36, I'm experiencing this mythical, organic shift into feeling comfortable in my body.
