When You Google 'Why Do Women...' Some Very Interesting Results Come Up

Sasha Bronner | April 25, 2015 | Women
After realizing last week that, as a woman, I apologize for nearly everything and to nearly everyone, my first instinct was to ask Google why. I typed the words "why do women," but before I could add "apologize," I was amazed at what Google suggested I ask instead.

How Living With and Loving Bruce Jenner Changed My Life Forever

Linda Thompson | April 26, 2015 | Gay Voices
If Bruce had told me about his gender issue when we first began getting romantically involved, I would not have married him. Pure and simple. But looking back, I'm so grateful to God, the universe, and Bruce that I didn't know, and that Bruce played the role in my life that he did.

Detroit-Born Magician Jeff Hobson Returns Home to Bring Wonder With 'The Illusionists'

Kelly Frazier | April 24, 2015 | Detroit
As you get older, the unknown can become scary as you question more and more things in the world, slowly losing that childlike innocence we all once had. Sometimes, we all love to take that escape from the daily rigmarole of life into some sort of fantasy.

Lexi Herrick | April 23, 2015 | Women
The journey to body acceptance is a vigorous fight, and one that involves both genders. It requires both sexes to rise above the grossly defined standards for beauty and attractiveness. We can work together to create a world built in understanding of human depth and uniqueness and not on shallow evaluation of appearance.

Tiger Stadium: What Makes a Ballpark

Kevin Walsh | April 22, 2015 | Detroit
For 10 years, there were some ancient ruins a few miles down the road from Comerica Park, an escape from the modern facility for families with restaurants, amusement park rides, museum kiosks, piped in radio broadcasts in the bathroom and flat-screens over the concession stands.

Proposal 1 Proves Republican Incompetence

Dale Hansen | April 21, 2015 | Detroit

The GOP's Handout for the Wealthiest Americans

Rep. Sandy Levin | April 20, 2015 | Politics
Repealing the estate tax isn't just a boon for the 5,500 wealthiest Americans; it is a bust to federal taxpayers, who would be on the hook for its quarter-of-a-trillion-dollars cost. And it gets worse: Combined with other tax bills approved by House Republicans so far this year, our debt would grow by $584 billion to finance tax cuts for the wealthy.

Amber Roth | April 24, 2015 | Green
Many migrating birds collide with man-made structures such as communication towers, power lines, and wind turbines; they face loss of habitat needed for refueling and protection from predators during stops along their migratory journey.

Steven Raichlen | April 17, 2015 | Taste
As many barbecue pros know, injecting is the most efficient way to add flavor and moisture to smoked, barbecued, or grilled food. Think of injecting as marinating from the inside out.
