Unless you're purposely trying to be alone, or on a deserted island, the chances of you actually being alone when you travel solo are quite skinny.
Making these choices wasn't easy. I left a lot of gravy and a couple of racks of ribs on the cutting room floor. Think of them as edible mileposts on a turnpike to tomorrowland.
The fight here is not about religious freedom. The courts have already determined what is and isn't covered, and arguments like the one presented by Jeremy Tedesco show an ignorance to the facts in order to feign oppression.
We've arranged a tour of five more historic pools to help you escape the sweltering summer heat. Dip your toes into these refreshingly cool swimming spots from around the country.
The Fight for 15 movement is gaining momentum. It has won victories in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, San Francisco, Seattle and SeaTac. Yesterday, a New York State Wage Board formally recommended a $15.00 minimum wage for the fast food industry in New York. Governor Cuomo could move that to into law after reviewing it. The University of California just announced it would raise its minimum wage for several thousand workers to $15.00. The $15.00 minimum is likely headed to a referendum vote in the District of Columbia next year. Pressure is now building on the president to act. He deserves credit for issuing orders raising the minimum wage of contract employees to $10.10, and requiring contractors to obey various workplace laws. Now federal employees are striking for $15.00 and a union.
Refreshing dips in the ocean, sandy beaches, strolls along the boardwalk, sticky ice cream cones and cool breezes are the perfect remedy for the stresses of daily life.

There are few things better than strolling down the street with a cold drink in hand.
Death From Above 1979,
Deftones have been one of the mainstays of the hard rock and metal industry since they blazed their own trails in the mid 1990s. The melodic brutality of their music has developed into their signature sound, and has been influential for the new generations of metalcore bands.
A few nights ago a cool summer breeze wafted down Barrie Street on the east side of Dearborn. I was sitting on a porch with my friend, Steve, sipping ice cold water and enjoying a full belly after a feast for Eid.
In honor of this religious holiday, we pay homage to five historic mosques from around the country.

Our Connected Future,
It is said that Detroit reinvents itself every 100 years. But as Detroit leaders develop a robust innovation ecosystem that can foster entrepreneurial growth, how can it also nurture a diverse array of entrepreneurs and create opportunities for inclusive innovation?

We love to soak up every bit of summer that we can, day or night. Here is our list of the best places to indulge this summer.
Families Against Mandatory Minimums,
Governor Snyder, I have no sympathy for drug dealers. Drugs took one of my sons -- and our entire family -- on a roller coaster ride through hell for seven years. But I don't think anyone should have to suffer the injustice that Richard Wershe Jr. has suffered.
