If You Found Out You Were Dying

Siobhan Kukolic | June 29, 2016 | Good News
I saw an anonymous meme on Facebook this weekend that stopped me in my tracks. It said, "If you found out you were dying, would you be nicer, love more, try something new? Well, you are. We all are." Death is the one guarantee in life, but obviously we don't...

Love Will Be The Death Of Us

"I'm sorry your marriage didn't work." My mother's words echo in my mind. When a marriage dissolves, can it only be seen as a failure? Can a relationship also succeed not because it lasts forever, but how it ends?

My Q And A With Former WNBA Player Michelle Brooke-Marciniak On The Sports-Sleep Connection

Arianna Huffington | June 27, 2016 | Healthy Living
The glamorization of sleep deprivation is deeply embedded in our culture. Everywhere you turn, sleep deprivation is celebrated, from "You snooze, you lose" to highly burned out people boasting, "I'll sleep when I'm dead." But perhaps those who equate sleep with laziness or lack of dedication can be convinced of the benefits of sleep by looking at what's going on in a world that is the ultimate in pragmatism, where performance and winning are everything: sports. Take Michelle Brooke-Marciniak, an All-American collegiate basketball player at the University of Tennessee who was once named the Final Four's MVP. She went on to play in the WNBA, and then brought her understanding of the link between sleep and performance to the world of business, co-founding the sleepwear and bedding company SHEEX in 2007. In answer to my questions, she shared her insights on how being an athlete has informed her experience as an entrepreneur.

The person who may have been there the longest is the woman who walks you to your car and helps you load your groceries. I think of her title as The Woman in the Parking Lot. I'm guessing she's now in her forties. I'm also guessing that she makes minimum wage plus tips.

What I Learned About Life From My 'Orange Is The New Black' Character, Crystal Burset

Tanya Wright | June 23, 2016 | Entertainment
I have no idea what will happen between Sophia and Crystal in the coming seasons. Playing her has been one of the great highlights of my lucky career as an actor. I've learned more from Crystal than just about any character I've ever played. And for that, I am eternally grateful.
